The website also says the deluxe will get you access to the beta, but if you already get access to the beta if you're a bf3 premium member.


That, I am. So no need to shell the extra bucks :D

I just hope its worth it.

We all know that BF4 Premium is coming, I just wish they would allow me to purchase it now alongside the game itself.

Did anyone get an alpha key?

But then they couldn't make more money in selling the limited edition version which will include the first map pack, which you'll get for free in Premium.

 

 

the 64bit only caught my eye :p

 

Where did you get them specs from? I don't get why 8 wouldn't be included lol. Also no word on minimum RAM?

Unfortunately, a lot of my friends did though. Coincidentally all below average players :D Stream here: http://www.twitch.tv...sxd/b/418222679

It's completely daft, that's what it is. I might see if I can just hang on for BF4: Premium Edition.

Specs were in the alpha email. And it's true Windows 8 isn't supported.

No Windows 8 support is truly confusing, probably just for now?? Hard to believe the latest OS would simply not be supported for the retail version.

Honestly I can't see the difference in graphics between BF4 and BF3?

Probably more in the special effects and lighting than amount of detail...though you can blow up buildings again.  Just looking at the video it seemed that way anyway, and it seemed like Warfighter had better effects overall than BF3 when I was playing em, haven't touched em in a while though.

 

Might be notably bigger maps on PC if they intend to stay 64 bit only, but we'll see.  That would be unexpected, but EA did cut compatibility with dx9 before anyone else.

I really hope they allow Windows 8 to work with it.  I just ordered an new PC that comes with 8.   Hmm.

Of course they will.  EA isn't looking to tank sales of their best franchises heh.

Implying that not supporting W8 would tank sales. Good joke.

Consider that as far as applications are concerned 7 and 8 are pretty much the same.

 

Consider that high end gamers would be more likely to be on or move to the newer OSes.

 

Consider that if they didn't support 8, why would I expect their software to work on 9 or 10 when I upgrade to that?

 

Consider that new machines are sold with 8.

 

I dunno man, I think you're the only one laughing.

It'll work, there's no doubt about that. As for the alpha, it may never support Windows 8. The beta is more likely to support it.

I know they will support 8. I don't remember ever saying they won't.

 

Got any proof to backup that second statement? W8 doesn't offer any performance advantage over W7 that isn't a statistical anomaly.

 

Again, where did I say they will not support W8?

 

Consider market share.

 

Thanks for making me laugh harder.
