Is battle field for the xbox going to be 64 or 32 players?

For the PC it's going to be 64, right?

If it's not 64 players than i'll just get it for my PC, but I would rather play it on my tv, on my nice couch w/friends.

I don't think th PC version is gonna be able to handle 64 players lag free. I have yet to play any type of FPS game where there 64 players and atleast 10 guys in the game weren't complaining about awfull lag. On that note its a damn sweet game though. I've been playing it all night and its Hella Fun.

o and as for the main question xbox has 32 players and pc has 64. but like toonz saidit will be hard to get 64 players playing lag-free on pc.

According to Electronic Arts BF 1942 page the xbox version supports 64 players. It will probably lag like all hell though cause the PC version has some serious networking issues on even small servers.

Battlefield: 1942 was confirmed that it is not going online. No EA games are going online for XBL at the moment.

Source, please?

I'm playing with 32 players lag free. Best ping I've got is 40, and it's common to get 70. Which is very playable.. It's a great netcode. And I think it will be good with 64 players if it has an awsome server :)

It wasen't confirmed. But it stood on the EA page.

EA dosen't own BF1942, and they don't have anything to do with development. DICE controls all the shots, EA only publish.. So I belive it will be online. Until I see an official press-release from EA and\or DICE I will belive it will be online

EA NEVER SAID THAT IT WASNT GOING ONLINE!!! God, its being made by DICE who after BF 1942 are a second party to MS. They made Rallisport Challenge and are making Midtown Madness 3 (Live), Rallisport 2 (live) so they know how xbox live works and I can easily see it supporting live. Oh and you want furthur proof that EA hasnt discounted the online aspect yet...

lol, if that doesn't prove the point I don't know what will...

64... phew, XBL or no, you are bound to have lag when you play 64 guys. I just hope with everybody using BB connection you only see 1.5 sec lag times.
