    Graphics of course are not on par with pc... so they had to be cut down. maps have to be cut down to make it fun. A map designed for 64 players sucks butt with only 10. no different than bf2 for xbox 360.

    Good, it's about time a developer gave some priority to the Pc version, rather than making a console to Pc port

    I'm perfectly happy with the current grahpics levels on 360. Outdated... but still very nice to look at. Makes you hunger for the next xbox even more. :cool:

    Plus Gears of War will never be on PC again..... so xbox wins for me.

    I preordered the 360 version, but will probably buy the PC version too sometime.Bad Company 2 looks very good on 360, and i doubt BF3 is uglier than that.

    dx 9 vs dx 10 or what eva... its not gonna be bad looking. But of course the 360 cant hold up to top of the line pc`s and it shouldn't be expected to.

    But dx 9 is still great looking and any pc gamer will tell anyone. The first thing you cut for better frames per second is graphics. Thats what the devs did and its actually smart. ad they tried to keep high end graphics to match pc`s people would cry if the game ran like crap.

    Game play >graphics. But it doesnt hurt to have a great looking game as well.

    Bad company 2 was actually developed primarily to the console besides bf3.

    Third generation console time is over. Time to se Ps4 and Xbox 3, for a jump high 5-6 year, based on actual pc power.

    And you're probably the seventh person to mention that.. can't win don't try man. Benefits of imagining it's the third generation include feeling up to 28-29 years younger?... don't knock it.

    On topic: Battlefield, Battlefield.. err console etc

    and yet we hear EA claim wii-u aka iFAD to rival or surpass this gen systems, yet claim this gen to lack power so games have to be cut down???

    I'm glad I'm not the only one to realize that Zeus is a complete idiot. I just come to this site to be entertained by how incompetent the admins are. No where in the article is the word "ugly" or "uglier" so I assume this is Zeus's opinion.

    I could care less, As soon as this game comes out i am putting MW3 in the trash and never going to buy a lag filled,$15 DLC, COD games again. If you pre order this game you get all the DLC for free. And its $59. Also you get 3 free maps to start out with for free. How can anyone support COD anymore? I do not get it. Any way I think it is better to have smaller maps because there are less players, If you had huge maps you would never find anyone and the game would get old vary quick. BF2 for the PS2/XBOX was one of my fav games of all time. I hope they make this one close to how that game played.

    lag filled: you'll never get around lag on any game as long as people with crappy internet connections are still around. unless of course your referring to how developers hide the lag that exists in games in which case the lag is still there
    $15 DLC: so your complaining about $15 DLC thats released months after release, meanwhile you'll support a company who is stripping options away from people who don't preorder/buy the game on day 1? your priorities seem a little off to me. and if you honestly think EA is not going to charge for DLC later on because you bought their game with a preorder, you might want to look at the history of the company and their DLC releases in the past.
