    Yeah, look at the large screen, then enlarge the small ones, I see 510 fps and what looks like settings lower than the lowest even available on BC2.

    Its just retarded to judge anything about the graphics on this game from those shots. The only useful info is seeing the HUD layout......since I play HC mostly even that is useless to me.

    Why? From what Ive seen here those are the first real in-game sshots that actually show how the game looks. not DICE movie,not cam record. It looks exactly the same as BC2, I wouldn't know the difference between bf3/bc2 if it weren't for the HUD.
    Its kinda funny how everybody got excited with trail movies but when real sshots show up you say its not worth looking at because its alpha.

    Did it ever occur to you that some members here might be in the testing of BF3 already and know things you can't about this game?

    Also there has been tons of gameplay released of the game. The screens you see are in fact Alpha and are being played on a low end system. The textures shown there are even lower the BC2. Open your mind a lil.

    They also said there isn't a rig made today that is capable of playing this game maxed out. Whats your point? I mean really. What is your point?

    I'm assuming you are looking at the first enlarged image and not looking at the rest. If you are going to judge it, I suggest you look at all of the screenshots.

    [​IMG]
    Because the rest of them look like ass, the weapon textures, tank textures, background textures, ground textures, and tree textures look like they pulled the models from BF 1942 in the rest of the screens. And to prove that

    [​IMG]
    This one they were running fraps, how many times have you ever seen 510 FPS in BC2 while running any half way decent settings? The only thing that looks decent in the rest of those screens is the water, and the water looks great in almost all games on the market, so to judge by water detail is laughable.

    But back to the first screen
    [​IMG]
    The big difference between BC2 and BF3 is the lighting. And it's going to be in the eye of the beholder, it's like BC2 HBAO on vs HBAO off. Some people will say that setting does nothing. But if you look at this screen and through the fog, the lighting details are better. DICE hasn't said anything else about it looking superior to BC2 in the graphics department, they have just spoken a ton about the new lighting engine. Heck even if you want to judge this screen (which is by far the best looking about of them all) tell me where all the foliage is? Because BC2 has a good amount, even at close range I see a few thickets of tiny grass.

    Bahaha, well the guy I was talking with at EB Games seemed indecisive as to whether he was bothered enough to go to the store room and grab one, all I know is he was like... "wait...uh you get a poster too.." I guess when you go pre-order go ask for one? Maybe they aren't handing them out cause they are lazy? xD Or maybe the guy wasn't meant to give me one at all, anyway here is it's epicness.

    It could be a Aussie thing. We all know they need shiny things to make them spend money :laugh:

    I'm waiting on my pre-order till bonuses are better announced, and maybe even till right before the release to see if it lands on Steam.

    It does well to take my mind off how much cheaper it would've been through steam :laugh:

    Also based off this article you are most likely correct about it being an Aussie thing: http://www.esperino.com/battlefield...ok-edition-revealed-eb-exclusive-in-australia

    Also since Gamestop and EB Games are the same store that kinda proves it maybe a regional thing.

    I still think that they are over-exaggerating when they say that there is no setup/rig that can max it out. Yes the game does look very good and GPU/CPU intensive but still I think GTX 580 SLI and an i7-2600 @ 4.5 can max it out.
