How many people have begged for a Battlefront 3 for the larger consoles? How many times have any of us imagined what they could do with this game, and they release it in this format? I will definetly not be buying this game.
i got a psp for rouge squadron, but im still gonna play my good ol' battlefront 1 and ocasionally 2
Wasted, toatlly wasted on these smaller formats.

Agreed. The game sounds outstanding, but unfortunately, I'm not going to waste my money on a PSP/DS only format.

I've tried Battlefront on the PSP and I'm not a fan. My Ogre fingers get tired of the tiny buttons and knobs and the gameplay is just not as good IMO.
Man, I bought all the SW PSP games and I would say the worst one is the Battlefront Renegade Squadron, and the twilleck game I don't recall since it was soooo bad... But the Force Unleashed and the Battlefront II was pretty descent on a PSP format in terms of 3D picture quality game play...
WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!!! :headexplo :headexplo :headexplo :headexplo :headexplo
All these years of begging for Battlefront 3 and this is what we get??? :headexplo :headexplo :headexplo Don't they ever listen?????!?!?!?!
Quote from Emporerdragon: And I'd consider comparing it to the voxyn a poor comparison. The voxyn was a 1-beast army capable of reducing entire squads to ruin without breaking a single drop of acidic sweat. The box is a ****ing box. Cna yuo raed tihs?

PC? No.

PS3? No.

PS2? No.

Wii? No.

XBox? No.


Gee, they couldn't make it for any systems my family already owns?

Guess they don't want my business.

All I want to know is WHY is it only for PSP and DS?

We can still hope that there's still going to be a BF3... even if it's only hoping...

Because the company that was working on Battlefront 3 for the consoles collapsed.

It's so sad that it went from this to this.

And it was gonna be the guys who did Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, and Timesplitters!
