Fun Battlefield Hardline Beta Statistics

Battlefield Hardline

Now that the BF Hardline beta has concluded, EA and Dice have had a chance to cull the gameplay data and pull together some pretty cool stats. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the Battlefield Hardline beta statistics isn't the number of hours played, but seeing how people played in general. For instance, according to EA's data, BF Hardline beta players grabbed $9 trillion worth of loot in bloodmoney. That's obviously a ton of cash, but for context, it's about eight times the total amount of U.S. currency currently in … [Read more...]

Their latest outing, Blended, was an exception to that rule, which perhaps explains why Warner Bros. has accelerated the Blended Blu-ray street date. The Blended Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD versions will all release on Aug. 26, just three months after the film debuted in theaters on May 23. That's a pretty quick turn, but it's probably an attempt to maximize earnings for a film that didn't do as well as expected on the big screen. You can click this link … [Read more...]
