PC: 1080p, better graphics. 60fps. 64 players max.
Console: 720p, decent graphics, 30fps, 24 players max.

Contents of the game are the same I think. 24 players is like bad company 2 which was good, but not sure on larger maps in BF3.

BF lends itself to large, populated maps and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'll be getting BF for PC, but I'll continue getting COD for Xbox.

My laptop handled BF2 fine, but really don't feel like spending $2k for a gaming laptop just for BF3. As much as I hate to I'll have to go with the PS3 version.

You mean on my old laptop? It was already running w/everything on low settings for BF2, haha. Maybe I'm too greedy with my 1920 resolution...

i wish, sorry, im happy to give you a reach around tho if that makes you feel better

Edit: WTF the console versions will only run at 720p? I thought all platforms were going to be pushing 1080p for this game?

Are there even any fast-paced shooters running in 1080p right now?

720p is not as bad as you think. Bad company 2 was 720p/30fps on PS3 and I think it looked great. Your TV/Receiver will upscale it so I doubt you'll notice any difference.

Here's a comparison between PS3 and PC

I would do unspeakable things to just find out the date for when the beta goes live for people who preordered on origin.

Demo/Beta is out on Sept. 27 for Origin pre-orders and Sept. 29 for anyone.

Quote:
September 29th is when the open beta starts and September 27th is when the closed beta starts. The closed beta is for those who pre-order Battlefield 3 through Origin or pre-ordered Medal of Honor.

Do you guys think this game has more players on consoles (and if so, which one) or PC?
