    the Beta build we are playing right now is a few months old. the current Beta build dice has their hands on right now way different. all the issues we are seeing now are already fixed, and even more

    I played the Xbox beta today. It looks pretty good for the console version, plays pretty well too but it was weird getting used to the controls. Turning felt like I was swimming in molasses.

    The CoD run around and shoot shit factor was way high, but I killed lots of fools with the 870.

    My take on that is they probably already made high-res textures, but were not pleased with FPS drop when those textures got applied... so now they are thinking "Well, we already have those textures, might as well release those and give the players an option to reduce the FPS on their own"

    Would make sense if they were running the game at a frame rate above 30 fps. You start dipping under 30, it becomes very noticeable. I just can't see why they would be releasing a texture pack that would be guaranteed to cause everyone that uses it to get bad fps. They said they were pushing the console to the limit, I just don't understand why they would put a game out there looking subpar compared to how they can make it look.

    Who cares. Its BF3 on a console. Nobody in their right mind would buy it for the console.

    I am pretty sure consoles have more pre-orders.

    12 year olds are not in their right mind, they are 12. And play COD. And 12.

    See above.

    Is it something wrong with the client or have they removed the arrows that tell you wether a player is friend or foe? Because it's gone for me, and it's soooo annoying.

    Actually early figures showed more PC pre-orders. Console people you have to prove it is not a COD clone. After the open beta, that may have changed though, I do not know that.

    The reason they got a high texture pack is because this game was build for PC. We already got the high textures and graphical goodies.

    I enjoy both PC and Consoles, if the games are fun, who cares. The PC elitists and Console kids both generally use weak arguments when defending their own platforms, usually using a shit ton of red herring fallacies.

    Yes BB we all know you feel it is your duty to stand up for consoles but since when does the greater popularity of something make it automatically superior? There are a lot of little kids and people who don't know any better in the world. Then of course there is the expense and hassle of PC gaming to consider. But if BF3 doesn't make it worth it relatively-speaking then I don't know what does.

    Most people who play solely on Consoles are people who just want to play games, don't know or care about what a GPU, CPU, RAM etc is, they don't want to be bothered with any of it. There is no such thing as a superior platform, people go with what ever works, and that's generally consoles.

    For those like us that like to upgrade and tweak our systems to play these games, it's more then worth it because we find the end result is better (and we like hardware). But of course everybody wants different end results from their gaming experiences. So can you blame them?

    It all comes down to keyboard and mouse vs analog sticks. You can argue every which way from Sunday, but when you narrow it down, that is simply the one massive separating factor between consoles and PC for FPS titles. The graphics are just a massive bonus beyond that.

    Now if you are talking racing or fighting games, consoles are just fine. But both of those are much morel limited environments as well that can be made to look amazing.

    That's very true, the keyboard and mouse shine in a lot of different games especially FPS games. I could never play an FPS game with analog sticks as it's far to restrictive, though some people can really do wonders with a controller.

    not denying that: but of the few i know who were really good with a controller - i set them up to play cod on PC with an xbox controller - they sucked. not just compared to pc players, but compared to themselves on xbox.

    never underestimate auto-aim ;)

    Some people can, compared to others with analog sticks. I have numerous friends I have converted to PC games from console. But now and then they play FPS on console, simply because the pool of crappy players is much larger to make them feel better about themselves. And despite how good you are with an analog stick, you won't be as good as a PC FPS'er. I stopped playing FPS on console simply because I told myself, I will not be limited by my input device.

    Console FPS has bigger hitbox.

    I sprayed my M60 in BC2 beta (ps3), and i killed 10 people across the map.

    Anyone getting BSOD while playing? I wasn't until I crossfired my 5870, and now I'm crashing after 10 minutes by BSOD.

    Temps aren't bad, either. Probably just the beta / my drivers not communicating.
