DICE – Battlelog Inspired by Waypoint, Elite and Other Social Networks

THE BUZZ: DICE has revealed that a broad range of social networks inspired Battlefield 3′s Battlelog including Halo Waypoint, Call of Duty Elite and other mainstream networks such as Facebook and LinkedIn.

“I looked at all social networks from Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, to of course Waypoint and Elite. We looked at everything,” said Frederick Loving, Producer for Battlelog. ”That’s inspirational for me just finding out what other people do and just sort of grabbing the good pieces out of it.”

“Of course we’re inspired by a lot of the social networks that are out there and they’re all pretty common if you look at them,” he added. “They have the similar feeds, they have similar likes, they have similar comments so there’s a lot of common features amongst all social networks,” he added.

EGM’s TAKE: This makes sense for DICE as to create a good social network you have to look at ones that already work and take the best bits for yourself.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
