    Battlefield 3

    Confirmed prices for the following stores (as per the pre release articles I signed up to)

    Tesco - 35 xbox, PS3, 30 PC (They keep on average 40 copies of each per store)
    Sainsburys - 26 xbox, 29 PS3, PC (They keep on average 40 copies of each per store)
    Asda - 29 Xbox, PS3, PC (They keep on average 40 copies of each per store)
    Amazon - 35 Xbox, PS3, 30 PC (if you sign up to love film and get the voucher code, you get 15 off)
    Game - 39.99 Xbox, 45 PS3, 35.99 PC
    Gamestation - 39.99 Xbox, 39.99 PS3, 34.99

    Looks like Sainsburys is the best bet for all concerned

    This is also most likely going to be the pricing structure for MW3 as well.


    Also cost for Karkand expansion pack is as follows (if you pre ordered disregard this)

    5 for PC
    5 for PS Store
    400 Xbox live points

    Might be worth waiting a bit longer to buy the game until the remaining issues are fixed...

    Battlefield 3 on PC doesn't exactly work right now—try later
    The single-player portion of Battlefield 3 was a major disappointment, but most of us bought the PC version for the multiplayer. That's going to be a harder beast to review, so we're slowing down to take our time and explore the maps, vehicles, and character classes. But we're running into a problem: the PC version of the game doesn't really work at the moment.

    The console version is having its own difficulties, with the 360 servers going down temporarily last night, but the problems with the PC version seem to run through the entirety of the multiplayer portion of the game.

    [...]

    DICE titles have a reputation for being absolute train wrecks at launch. The chances of this launch going well were about zero, so many PC gamers seem to be sucking it up and making the best of it. (Source)

    I just got an email saying my order has been dispatched.
    It still says

    Dispatched via Royal Mail (estimated arrival date: October 28, 2011).

    Can’t see it arriving tomorrow... this is royal mail we are talking about after all + plus it's been dispatched far too late for collection today

    Felt the campaign was a bit weak with only a few semi interesting missions, feel its lost its battlefield uniqueness and just feels like every other 1st person shooter out there.

    The multiplayer is still the best by far though, having great fun on it

    Got on achievement left for single player and that's doing the perfect run on the jet mission.
