Another day with a lot of stuff going on.Â Here’s what I found interesting:
Battlefield Heroes gets delayed – “We decided to increase its focus on some of the social networking features,” Riccitiello said in a conference call with Shacknews.Â Bummer.Â I wanted to play this summer.
Tiberium may be delayed until 2010 – UGH!Â Oh well.Â This one needs to be ‘really’ good so a delay is acceptable.
EA is going to sell PCs that are Crysis ready – Now this is a really cool idea.Â According to this blogger, EA reps at Comic-Con said “… the rigs will come in various configurations, which will correspond to Crysis Warheadâ€™s levels of graphical detail, with a likely price range being $600-$800″.Â I would be interested in hearing more because for a pre-built system that’s a fantastic price.Â EA would be stupid to sell computers that run Crysis poorly or on low settings so you can expect at least some level of quality there.
Perhaps this can go further.Â If developers want to start pushing the boundaries of hardware then they need to do something like providing the hardware at good value.Â Additionally this would be a fantastic way of keeping the PC market afloat if these publishers or developers are worried about it.
