    Wow. I can't watch the video's at work, so that will be later. Does not effect PC users is a refreshingly nice statement.

    I think this makes me like the game more for crapping on gamepad wielders.

    Well that doesn't really effect you at all then, if your getting it for both your getting it for both, and most console games are bought at GS, so you would get the Rush, and the PC version has it no matter what so you would once again have it.

    You can see the Squad Rush video (2nd one in the clubhouse) The 1st vid is the trailer for the GT TV episode 301, so if you already watched that then you seen that info. The SP looks really good by the vid, I'm not sure I will be able to pull myself away from MP to try it for a while though.

    Yep, I haven't seen those before, I really cant wait to play this on PC, the screens just look amazing. It's funny though about the Squad Rush video, I had heard there was another mode being announced, and I just happened to find the video when I was looking for new info, I checked the BC 2 site and it hadn't been mentioned yet, then about a day or 2 later they posted a blog about the new mode, so they must have some leak there, granted the leak wasn't too far ahead of the news so they got that ship sealed up tight.

    If the game really looks like that I can honestly say they begin to rival Crysis.

    Yeah I agree, except in this you can destroy more than a tin house.

    The HQ screenshots are taken on the 360 in a special dev mode with super AA, advanced DOF tweaks, and some obvious contrast adjustments. It's not what I would call actual "in game" shots. The second shot looks different though. It doesnt look as buffed and I think it might actually be closer to what we can expect in game.

    Either way the game is going to look great. I really hope I can get close to 60FPS @ 1080 without sacrificing too much quality.

    Is there going to be an Open Beta for the game, or only through the purchase of it?

    There are talks of some open keys available on the BF:BC2 blog and Twitter site but the keep saying that "pre-order is the easiest way to secure access" It might be possible to get a key without committing but nobody knows for sure. There were hundreds of keys given away on Twitter for the PS3 beta.....
