annoying for console gamers

i really find it annoying how pc gamers can download patches and new stuff, while console gamers like me have to just wait for battlefront 2 and even then we still wont get everything. I know that xbox live has downloadable extras but it doesnt have everything and i dont think those extras can be played anywhere but the computer. oh well.......

At least you consolers got a game tailored for your platform. PCers paid $50 for a CONSOLE PORT. By all means they should be patching the crap outta the PC version at this point.

The console versions do have patches. At least that's what I've been reading.

Sides, console gamers got a game they'd never had before. PC gamers got a game that's been done many times before, that was dumbed down for the console.

I don't mean this as a flame, not at all, only an opinion.

Thanks.

And next to that, the pc gamers have only gotten two minor patches yet. Good chance the consoles will aslo get the 1.1 patch. It would be too much trouble if they'd release the patches we've had now also for the consoles.

If you don't get the 1.1 patch either, THEN I think you you have the right to complain.

Concerning mods and stuff... well... you could've expected that

We console gamers are still getting quite slapped upsidedown when it comes to playing online - it's HORRIBLE!

you also payed $150 for your gaming system...whereas we PC gamers pay $1000+ for ours...we've paid for better performance.

I play PC, and I think that games like these (FPS based) are supposed to be on PC, RPG and fantasy games work better on Consoles.

This has been done half a dozen times and isn't worth it do re-do it, but you can continue it etc here,

Here's another poll including pc vs console debate.

poll for which console you got the game

One subject, one topic
