Special Edition Battlefield 3 Themed Consoles.

While I don’t have too much information for you just yet, Battlefield3 Blog is claiming that

“The console stands are made in plastic and fitted with lots of cool features, such as a Claymore mine and LED lights. The “Vault Cases”, as they’re officially called, are available for the Xbox 360 for $90 and for the PlayStation 3 for $100. Both are now available at your local GameStop store.”

 

Edited Update: Joystick has posted the official press release HERE .

The press release states

The Battlefield 3 Vault for the Xbox 360 Slim and PlayStation 3 Slim will be available at http://www.calibur11.com, as well as all major online retail outlets this fall with a MSRP of $89.99. GameStop will also offer a bundle that includes a copy of the Battlefield 3 for the PlayStation 3 console, a code to download the Battlefield 3 Physical Warfare Pack on the PlayStation 3 and the Battlefield 3 Vault for the PlayStation 3 Slim for an MSRP of $99.99. Battlefield 3 Vault customizable nameplates are also available for an MSRP of $17.99.

 

So what about you? Are you looking to trick out your console by way of Battlefield 3 themed “vaults” or is your love strong enough that you don’t feel the need to dress it up? Has following your favorite franchise become a collector’s hobby?

Physical Warfare = GET!

I will openly admit that I haven’t played a Battlefield title since 1942. Alright perhaps it was 2002 for most people but on the battlefield it was 1942 and co-op was alive and well on my PC.

After an over saturation of WWII games hit the market I was done with the genre and done with the very fact that WWII FPS’s had become a genre at all.  So when the new video for Battlefield 3 (Let’s Get Physical) came across my desk the initial reaction to recreate Olivia Newton John’s musical stylings quickly faded and I started to rethink the franchise I had dismissed 9 years ago.

Don’t believe me? Have a look for yourself. What you will find is a trailer with super refined graphics, really engaging weapon specs, and a slick presentation.  One can only hope that the actual gameplay is as intriguing as this trailer (something tells me it will be).  And hey, you never know, you just might find me on the battlefield once again making a formidable attempt to shoot something other than myself in the foot.

New Battlefield 3 ‘My Life’ Trailer and 12 minutes of Gameplay!

On Friday EA and DICE released their new Trailer ‘My Life’ for upcoming title Battlefield 3. The trailer features gameplay footage and gives us a quick peek into some of the action on the ground and in the skies.

Battlefield 3 It is to be released on November 2, 2011 for PC, PS3, and 360 and has been hyped because of the introduction of Frostbite™ 2, the next instalment of DICE’s cutting-edge game engine.

Battlefield has always had a strong multiplayer experience but adding to the single player mode (that I always prefer) this time a new animation system will allow players to “drag fallen comrades into safety and mount weapons on almost any part of the terrain”.

Update: You can also head on over to Battlefield.com to watch the 12 minute ‘Faultline’ trailer which gives you a more extensive look at gameplay or check it out below!



So tell me, will you be making the switch from your current FPS in November?
