    Probably a bit more for the cross-gen bundle including last-gen and current-gen?

    I felt the atv hitting the helicopter was a bit anti climatic .

    I really don't get justification for higher priced games on new generation. Technically shouldn't games be much easier and faster to produce for new consoles? Especially when taking a high level PC version then creating console versions from that, you're going to have to do a lot more work on the previous gen version.

    I was quite excited to see some Series/PS5 Frostbite footage. Oh well.

    I would like a BF set in the 80's, but this seems cool enough.

    In 2005 with the xbox 360 games went from $50 up to $60. With a 36.7% inflation increase that $60 today would be $82.04.

    Trailer was decent as far as prerenders go. Not a fan of the lack of any battlefield theme.

    The justification given by publishers is that games are more difficult to make, not inflation.

    I believe they cite both. Remember over the last 15+ years salaries have gone up for the employees as have team sizes and they will continue to go up and up unless someone figures out how to make AI game designers that just create textures and models for the games

    Really looking forward to this. Finally reminds me of BF3/4. I hope it has the lasting support of those two.

    So we will have to wait some more days to see gameplay then :p

    Edit: people seem to think this trailer will be the final graphics due to the 'ingame engine graphics' mark. just look on youtube comments. Their in for a dissapointment if they think graphics like that would be even possible untill next generation but ok. Its all CGI, real gameplay on the 13th of june.

    it's written "in engine" not ingame.
    From past experiences with EA, models, textures, levels, will be the same, what will change is IQ, and the "cinematic" experience with lot of action and particles everywhere on screen Dof, blur filters etc..., which won't translate into the final game. But assets wise it's the same.
