I'm not a rich jew like you KH :rolleyesgerman:
Can you build a PS4-alike PC for $400?

We’ll be using Newegg for component prices, because that’s our components supplier of choice when we build new rigs here in the ExtremeTech bunker.

Motherboard: ASRock H61M-DGS ($50). A no-frills motherboard, but you get integrated Gigabit Ethernet and 6-channel audio. It only supports DDR3 1600 RAM, but that’s a compromise we’re forced to make.
CPU: Intel Celeron G1610 ($50). This chip is only a dual-core, but for lightly threaded workloads it has comparable theoretical performance to the PS4’s 8-core Jaguar CPU.
GPU: Asus HD7850-DC-1GD5 ($140, or $120 after rebate).
RAM: Kingston HyperX Black 8GB ($65). This stuff is DDR3 1600 — which has a fraction of the bandwidth of the PS4’s GDDR5.
Storage: 500GB Samsung Spinpoint M8 ($55). 500GB of 2.5-inch storage goodness.
Other: USB Bluetooth + WiFi dongle ($11)
Case and power supply: Apex DM-387 Micro ATX case ($45). This bad boy is cheap, includes a PSU, and can stand on its side — like the PS4!

Total cost: $416, or $396 after rebate

So, there you have it: It is just about possible to build a PS4-comparable PC for $400.
And those are 2013 prices, that stuff is cheaper now.

1.) Only being 4 planets, with how many constitutes "multiple maps" being left open for interpretation, means the majority will be DLC.
2.) 40 players max is A: stupidly low and B: it's gonna be on PC, there should be choice regardless.
3.) Space battles and galactic conquest were the cornerstones of many peoples playthroughs on BF2.
4.) Modding is practically standard on PC these days; online modding keeps online fresh.
5.) The vehicle box isn't wrong, because it stated at the time what was unconfirmed, and didn't say that AT-ATs were now suddenly driveable. A vehicle only being available on rails is literally a joke in this day and age.
6.) DLC and premiums are bad, mmkay.
7.) Fuck EA and fuck Origin in the ear with a 14 inch rubber black cock.

Dev said himself the game would have more than 8 maps. And we may like it or not DLC is here to stay. I hardly buy any, though. The Dragon Age expension was the first one in years.

I can only judge on that when I've seen the maps. I remember there was a game on the original Xbox which had 64 players. It was a mess, because the maps weren't optimized for it. We stick to 32 players most of the time.
Kaiser Hanssen wrote:3.) Space battles and galactic conquest were the cornerstones of many peoples playthroughs on BF2.
Very disappointed about space battle not being in the game. Galactic Conquest not so much, it was just a multiplayer with bots and some cutscenes.
Kaiser Hanssen wrote:4.) Modding is practically standard on PC these days; online modding keeps online fresh.
A lot of multiplayer games don't support native modding. But there will probably be mods for it on private servers.

Can't say anything about the vehicles, no information was given. The internet is just looking for something to hate here.

Depends, if it's a good game and the DLC comes fast... then no.

Not a fan of Origin, but I won't hate EA as a company. They made some good games and some bad. Made some good decisions and some bad desicions. Just like any other company.

This could possibly be the game that makes me stop playing BF3 as often

None other than David Prowse shared that on Facebook, I was moderately appeased.
