Battlefield 1943 Official HUKD Thread

To say the game is being released as an Xbox 360 Arcade game for 1200MS Points sometime this month....its amazing.

Love the Battlefield franchise and Wake Island!

So who's gonna be getting it?

Set this thread up to get some players together to maybe create a clan or just sort out nights of gaming on there

Defo!

Did you see the Inside Xbox interview last week, I was expecting gameplay to look pretty choppy and just the usual acrade graphics but I was stunned!

No wonder its getting alot of hype lol.

On the first day I didn't manage to get any so I just gave up.

I've just watched the video on XBL I'll definitely be getting this for 1200msp.

Already preordered it for the PC. According to the official Twitter thinggy it's not coming out this month

Hmm, is that for the 360? or PC?

June or July - it will be worth the wait

Xbox 360 and Ps3 initially then the PC. Think the Pc side is their biggest market to be honest so many mods available for BF2.

I don't suppose anyone with contacts or a really good eye knows the exact date of the games release?

I'm dying to do an all nighter on it

i will almost certainly be getting it.
Either buying it myself or i will try and work my contacts at EA.

I just really hope it doesn't play like BF Heroes... that game is fking horrible.
Oh Oh and Marvel vs Capcom 2 in 2 weeks time!

As far as i know from the grapevine is that there is no firm release date yet.
only that it is going to be this summer.

And Coral Sea looks fking mental!
A very clever marketing ploy from EA. Cheap game... unlockable map.
you can bet there will be paid for map packs :P im hoping they extend the kits as there are only 3 aren't there?

Yeah, 3 kits, although they sound amazing.

No down the barrel sights for the gunner kits though, just sniper and rifleman

43 million kills will be easy. I wonder what they achievements will be

BOOOOO!

Just found this everyone. Looks to be a fair old wait.

41 days till Europe gets it when USA gets it in 11 days.

Why do that? By the time we get it that map will already be unlocked!

thats silly, I'd understand if there was a seperate manufacturing process, but for a piece of software on a server....

Yep, very silly indeed.

Europe aren't gonna get the satisfaction of unlocked a new map. Same with most games though!

People in Europe should stand their ground and boycott it then (they wont co,s no one ever does, too weak)

The community In Europe should get their own chance to down 43 million people and unlock map (It is a very good idea)

it's not just unlocking the map that bothers me, it's the fact that the yanks will be king when us noobs from Europe start. :lol:

Anybody know what time XBL updates the arcade part of the servers?

Its been rumoured to be around 450MB so won't take long to download, its just with it being a worldwide release I reckon the servers might crash.

Yeah, saw these the other day, probably the easiest achievements. Well getting hyped for it now :w00t:

I'm still not sure whether this is released Today or tomorrow, some websites are giving different dates, checked my xbox this morning before I came to work, it wasn't there yet. :lol:

I was looking at this yesterday & it said it wasnt out til August !!

Made up now, thanks guys

I'm pretty sure it comes out today with some people already having it ect so we will just have to wait till our servers update

Why wait?
