BF3 To Feature Online Pass System

Looks like developers are getting more and more greedy with their games. Usually, developers get nothing from the sale of pre-used game copies.

Therefore EA introduced this system which blocks some of the features of the pre used game, for instance, the multiplayer feature. Hence, second hand buyers have access to the limited content only and if s/he needs to access full features of the game, s/he needs to pay some extra money to get a code from the publisher which unlocks these features.

Battlefield 3 Begins Alpha Testing Stage

While Battlefield is just a few months away (I’ve already pre-ordered my copy), it looks like Dice has already started its alpha testing schedule. They are even inviting gamers to come forth for those who want to get a taste of the latest game in the successful franchise.

Of course, they’re probably going to need one of those high end rigs that’ll set you back around two grand, but hey- you gotsta do what ya gotsta do. The Alpha testing will pave the way for Beta testing which you can expect in September, and hopefully, by the release date (October 28th), you can expect a game that is mostly bug-free.

Console-Based Battlefield 3 Available Only In 720p

PC users will rejoice when hearing this news. DICE has recently claimed that the new Battlefield 3 game (which is available for both console and PC) will only run in 720p on game consoles, at 30 frames per second.

The PC version, however, will run at 1080p at 60 frames per second. If you just bought a new graphics card for your desktop computer, you made a good choice. And, if you just got a new Xbox360, well, you’ve always got Halo to look forward to.

United States Army Launches Own App Store

Less than a week after announcing Android as a test phone, the US Army has just announced that they will launch a service called Army Marketplace, that will be fully operational in August of this year. The store is currently a restricted website but the army is working a storefront app for smartphones.

The Army Marketplace currently hosts 17 Android Apps and 16 iPhone Apps, and we can’t wait till they hit their 100th app mark. Soldiers can even put in requests for apps they’d like (uh oh) in hopes that their wishes get put into production.
