Company of Heroes 2: Adrennes Assault Review

Following the PlayStation 3 and PC updates before it, the Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 3 has now also finally received the latest patch, adding that big swag of balance tweaks and bringing the option of dedicated server rentals to the console for the first time.

Most seasoned PC first person shooter players will be familiar with server rentals -- and the PC version of Battlefield 3 has supported rentals since launch -- but given that most console-bound shooters generally have players unwittingly hosting everyone in a match from their often choked and laggy home connections this is a somewhat alien concept in that space.

To walk PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Battlefield 3 players through the process, DICE and EA have released this instructional video. Watch it below or click here to jump to our HD video library.

Anyone know how much it costs for the server rentals?

I'm on PC but just curious.

Prepare to have you server browser lists infested with random user-rented servers.


One of the server rental options on Playstation 3 is $99 for 3 months.

1 DAY $1.49 USD (120 MSP)
7 DAYS $6.99 USD (560 MSP)
30 DAYS $24.99 USD (2000 MSP)
90 DAYS $59.99 USD (4800 MSP)

Can't wait til they ditch MS points.

As cool as the server rental feature may be, the PC patch killed this game for me (and my regular playing friends).

They destroyed things like tank durabilty, not to mention the fact that you can now spray and pray with maximum success!

O well, come on May 15!

it doesn't really

each weapon still has its own capabilities and short and long range.

There is always going to be whingers

@kirkoswald No, less recoil. The point I was TRYING to make is that heavy machine guns have LESS recoil which means it's EASIER to hit targets from FAR AWAY. Hope that spells it out a bit better. Sorry, next time I will try to keep it more simple.

I'm playing BF3, thought that was clear?
