BlackLabel Getting footage for PC is easier as most of the game's developed on a PC, plus as Chautemoc pointed out, better graphics.
Yet games like MW3 and NFS: The Run are shown on consoles. And for example, The Run is based on the Frostbite 2 engine.

-My point.
Those two games are geared toward consoles and look similar across all systems. There's also a lineage with the previous Battlefield games being PC releases. Not to mention the PC version has awesome graphics, of course!

The reasons for showing mostly PC footage are simple: it looks best on PC, and it's a sequel to Battlefield 2, a PC only game.
Reeeeally? So you don't think there is ANY connection at all with the furious rage directed towards games like Call of Duty (sry for comparing, but I am) that are almost directly made for consoles and only shown on consoles through trailers? I'd say DICE is gaining something from the PC community. Hence my last comment to this article, but I guess that is just a once in a lifetime reaction? I think not, I think many PC gamers appreciate the attention DICE is giving the PC, outside of the obvious better graphics argument.
COD is made primarily for consoles and is targeted as such; BF3 is made primarily for PC and is targeted as such. No great conspiracy...

And that's not to say the console versions of BF3 aren't great, but PC has the edge and is the lead platform. PC version of MW3 actually seems pretty good too, though the unranked dedicated servers thing kind of kills it.

Isn't the limited edition what the pre-order was called? I know some shops are selling it now, but I thought that would just be left over pre-order copies.

BlackLabel Quite a few DICE employees play on console (some in addition to PC). They've also noted they're committed to the quality of the console versions, and it shows. They don't match the PC version, certainly, but they seem to be all they can be. If the console version isn't satisfying you, look into the PC version and/or a gaming PC.

I think it's a nice detail that they show the trailer/preview played on a PC
It wouldn't have made much sense to show this on consoles. In the run up to release only 2 out of the 12+ trailers shown were on console the rest were PC only footage. DICE don't care about the consoles for this game.. EA are probably the only reason Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 have the game.
