    That's kinda where I'm in a debate. Console BF3 will only have 24 players whereas PC BF3 will have 32 or more.

    I have played all the battlefields on PC (BF1942, BF2, BF2142, BFBC1&2) and BFBC2 on Xbox360.

    I must say, I find the PC Versions are more enjoyable and easier to play with the keyboard and mouse. I still cannot plays FPS properly with a pad:eek:. Need more practice!

    Prob get BF3 as a gift for xmas:).

    Mannnn, I sure was extremely disappointed by BF2142. My fav was BF: Vietnam or BF2 by far on the PC.

    The big walker in BF2142 was fun though, i liked chasing tanks and stepping on foot soldiers LOL.

    The distructable buildings in BFBC2 is also great, I think BF3 will have this feature..

    I guess you haven't seen the trailers. EVERYTHING appears destructible.

    This and MW3 and Resistance 3 are all on my list for this year. Cant wait for this to come out, but I also want them to release some multiplayer vids. Everything now is the campaign which is awesome but I want to see live multiplayer vids.

    I wouldn't mind some MP vids but I typically finish the SP first in any major game I play so it worked out quite well for me this time around.

    E3 Gameplay footage. Wow, I am definately upgrading my PC for this game to run this thing at full settings. It's like playing a movie. Going to suck for consoles to get a way dumbed down version of it.

    I hope it backs up the hype. The MW3 footage looks exactly the same as the past few games. Glad BF3 is actually advancing and innovating games. CoD has simply turned into the Madden franchise of FPS games, releasing the same exact game every year with slight differences.

    per the developer ....

    http://www.nowgamer.com/news/5260/battlefield-3-will-still-look-good-on-consoles

    DICE Art Director Gustav Tilleby has said that upcoming military shooter Battlefield 3 will have ground-breaking visuals on consoles as well as PC.

    Battlefield 3 was detailed to the developer community - and the press - at EA's GDC event yesterday.

    Tilleby told X360 magazine that DICE's Frostbite 2.0 engine which powers the game is "a step beyond our competitors, and it allows us to do more".

    "And while the stunning looking Battlefield 3 trailers doing the rounds are clearly rendered on high-end gaming PCs, consoles won't look that different. "The positive thing is that the new rendering technique allows us to do more complex calculations at no extra cost," added Tilleby. "That's the magic. The game will look very good, even on 360."

    "We knew that people would think that this demo was running on PC, but the good thing is that it's all based on streaming," added executive producer Patrick Bach. "I can promise you that the console versions will still look amazing because of the core technology. If you have a 360, we want to use that machine to the maximum."

    I'm somehow a bit skeptical on their statements. I just don't see consoles that are getting close to the end of their lifespan competing against a top of the line PC. But we'll definately see. It'll still probably be the best graphics these consoles have seen yet.

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention. If you plan on getting it, pre-order it. If you pre-order it you get the Limited Edition and that gives you free access to the first DLC.

    That is awesome news. I knew console graphics were just right up there with PC graphics - especially after throwing it on a 1080p 40-50 inch screen TV :)

    I used to play a lot of PC, but after getting xbox, I will only get a PC game if it is an RTS since that is designed for PC.

    Ehh, it's all the same. Only major difference is the amount of players in a server - not that big of a deal.
