    It is going to be called "battlefield 3 for Dummies" intended target is all the MW3 gamers that will see how much better BF3 is than MW3 and want to learn how to play a proper FPS game.

    I honestly can't imagine it will be a very interesting book.
    (interestingly the modernwarfare3 site is still getting bombed)

    If it's penned by Mcnab himself it could be good....Bravo Two Zero was brilliant

    Unless McNab misunderstands the fiction element and just writes a book about his experience fragging noobs on a team deathmatch.

    Jesus, I hate it when game companies piss money away on stunts like this.

    Phalanx just exploded.

    Why would they do this? Why would McNab do this?

    A book? Really?

    Never understood the appeal behind video game novels, half of the experience is playing through the story first hand controlling your character along the way in a visual and interactive setting.

    For people that actually enjoy these things fair deal, just not going to be getting any of my money.

    why release a book based on the storyline of BF3, i know its not released yet but i can't help to think the story line to the game is going to be pretty weak, as with the previous games and in general all other games in this genre.
    i have never met anyone who bought games like BF or COD for their story-lines lol

    haha mcnab is such a whore, he'll put his name to anything these days for a few shiny pennies.

    Sad really considering what a legend he is.... mind you, what else do you do once you leave the jedi?

    None of the other Battlefields even had a storyline. They don't need one, and neither does BF3, but the pressure of marketing to console gamers is high.

    go play your RPG for stories. Final Fantasy ---> that way.

    A book is nice for those who want something to read anyways. Don't judge it before you have read it.

    Hm, maybe worth a read, though only as PDF, wont buy it. Have noticed the bio-shock fiction book too, just not sure about this upcoming trend for game - book tie ins.
