The footage they showed on Late Night was extremely short, it did look pretty good...what little there was.

The lighting wasn't as impressive but not as big of a step down as I was expecting.

To me, that looked just like the video from a couple of weeks back. No ACOG and the lighting is a little different. I did like the knife twirling though.

The lighting is completely different from PC.
Too bad, it was what makes the game feel alive.

awesome!!
Prone is a big deal in a shooter. But DICE keeps it from being overpowered through constant tweaking. Not only does moving from prone to standing have an animation sequence that prevents you from shooting, but they're also experimenting with things like muzzle flash and sniper lens flare to expose anyone who sits in one place for too long.

Graphics aren't as big a deal to me as it is some people. If it looks half as good as the PC version and I get to play it with the AVS guys, then I'm set. Now missing out on 64 player matches, that's a better reason to want to play the PC version.

I completely agree. Sure, PC is much better, but the console graphics are plenty good. I'd rather have a little worse graphics and a much bigger screen to play on.

Looks good. Here's how I see it, it will be better than BFBC2, and I had no problems with how that looked or played...Win Win for sure.

Here to help and learn. Thanks AVS.

I'd rather spend <$60 (with preorder discounts) for Xbox version than have to buy/build a PC, stow it somewhere, run it to my system, and then play with an entirely different crew.

How about we stop with the bickering and stay on-topic? This thread is devoted to Battlefield 3, and is located in the XBOX section. Regardless of platform, we're all hoping this game turns out great. If you want to talk about PC vs XBOX, go crap on the gamefaqs forums.

You can play pc on your "82" display...... I play on my "130" home theater. I can play on any display in my house. As could you. Idk if you're being ignorant or just honestly don't realize you can plug a pc into the same things as a console....

Has anyone picked up MOH Limited Edition recently to get access to BF3 beta?

I don't think any other way to get into the beta has been announced yet has it? I figure the longer we wait, the harder it will be to get a legit copy if that's the only way in..

$20 on Amazon, but IDK if its the limited edition or not.

I should throw mine back in and play some Combat mission, that is a fun game mode.
