Battlefield 2142

For those who may have forgotten, Battlefield 2142 is on its way. EA and DICE have released a demo for the impending release, to hopefully alleviate some of the angst for those who have pre-ordered the game.

From last Saturday (7/10/06) players have been able take the next step in the Battlefield universe and challenge their friends in both the new Titan Game Mode and the legendary Conquest Game Mode. As a benefit to those players who pre-ordered their copy of Battlefield 2142 from EA, the demo was available to them early through the EA Downloader! Everyone else can get the demo right here

Before you commit to the big download (1.5GB), you might want to check out people's comments on it.. feedback has been, shall we say, 'mixed'.

Intel are readying their next generation chipset for sample release around week 44 - 46. According to the news article, Bearlake G+ would be the first Intel chipset certified for HD-DVD, but not providing support for the Blu-Ray format. Do you see this as a deliberate snub by Intel, considering the Blu-Ray format was developed by the BDA (of which Apple, Dell, HP and many other large personal computing manufacturers are contributing members)? Feel free to comment below...

Maybe I'm ignorrent, but I can't see Blue-Ray making a huge impact for quite some time. £600 for an internal Blue-Ray drive? HD-DVD is gonna be about half that at the most.

Blue Ray is a format I do not think will take off.

An average person will hear "HD DVD" and understand it. "Oh yes DVD...but in High definition"

Whereas Blue-Ray is like "WTF??"

Yup, now you're thinkin' in a real world sense. We need to understand that 90% of the world is full of idiots who only go by name, color, looks, etc. Most people won't bother researching the two mediums. I totally agree that HD-DVD will definately be more consumer friendly.
