REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 21, 2005--Get to the chopper! Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS - News) and Digital Illusions today announced that Battlefield 2(TM) has begun to ship to retail outlets for the PC. Powered by an all new game engine, Battlefield 2 brings the intensity and excitement of its predecessors, the award-winning Battlefield 1942(TM) and Battlefield Vietnam(TM), into the modern era with the latest, most technologically advanced vehicles and weapons systems available to man.

Armed with the latest modern weaponry, players can take control of any of the game's 30+ vehicles.

Hmmmm let's see... $350 every 5 years for console hardware or $800 (low-balling) every year for PC hardware. I wonder why the console market is growing so rapidly.

I don't know what you're smoking, but I usually only spend about $400 every 3 years or so. Do I spend more than a console? Sure. But then again, I can do WAY more with my PC than I can with my console.

For one, I can emulate just about every other console out there.
I can use it for work to program, do graphics, and such.
I can play most games that come out on consoles and at better resolution and quality.
I can play movies, music, and all kinds of other media.

In other words: PC for teh win!
