Battlefield 3 Marked Down to $30 for Black Friday

By Published November 25, 2011 at 12:10 am

EA's Origin has currently listed Battlefield 3 as $30, 50% off, and says the deal will last for only today (Black Friday). The deal is allegedly available only to North American users of Origin, so if you're interested in BF3 and haven't picked it up yet, now might be your shot to do so.

If you haven't already seen our Black Friday Survival Guide by FJ, check it out here to capitalize on those deals!

If you're not sure whether or not you can run the game to your liking, we've learned the following:

Generally speaking, the 560 Ti can run the game on 'High' settings; the 570 can max the game out; the 6870 can run the game on 'medium-high' settings, the 6850 should run it around medium-high as well, and the 550 Ti will run it on medium with some gizmos disabled. This will vary based on your other system specs, but as a general rule of thumb, it should help you figure out if you'd be happy with the settings.

I should note that the game looks fantastic no matter what, so don't let the graphics settings discourage you. Remember that this is all about relative depravity -- BF3 has high specs because it looks good naturally, so it has higher standards.

Enjoy the rest of your shopping weekend!

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
