Well, I could have already told you this, but EA and DICE made it official today, cementing in the ground of truth that when Battlefield: Bad Company 2 releases in early March, you still cannot go prone.
According to David Goldfarb of EA DICE, who answered community questions via his Twitter account yesterday, prone will not make it into the final build.
“FYI: we will not add prone based on anything. You can stop asking now. (smiley face)”
A demo for the title showed up on PS3. We played it and loved it (even without prone) and another multiplayer beta is on Xbox Live right now. Why not try it out and see if no prone ability is really that bad.
