Good for them. At least they're thinking of the Fan Base and they're going to try and make sure everyone gets the best experience possible. I'm still gonna buy this on PC though. Battlefield [excluding the Bad Company games] have always been a PC game to me. Won't touch them on a console, wouldn't feel right.

I enjoy 1943 on PS3 and Bad Company 2 on 360.

I'll still play Battlefield 3 once it releases. The sheer destruction one man can cause in a Tank is amazing.

Well, I've heard somewhere that the minimum requirements are actually lower than what they were for Battlefield Bad Company 2. Could somebody please confirm this?

You should be able to run it with a low-to-mid-end graphics card.

Meh, this is of no concern to me. 10-year-old 480P televisions ftw!

The PCs can do it way higher than 1080p ,

this mainstream idiocity is hard to teach

there's a huge difference in HDTV , and PC LCD screen ... huge difference , even the SAME resolution will look better on the PC.

I wouldn't be too worried anyway. I'm rocking a Radeon 3870 that's pushing four years old. I've just reached the point where it absolutely needs to be replaced, and the 3870 wasn't phenomenal when it came out. It can still outperform consoles but modern games don't truly shine with something like this. It's amazing how much can be done with low-end and mid-range hardware if you have a basic skills in keeping your OS clutter-free and if you keep your drivers up to date.

This is what I always tell people who moan about having to upgrade their computers all the time. I only upgraded my 3850 a few months ago, though games were still running well on it, I just wanted an upgrade :]
