You know, I can't believe the amount of bitching and moaning in this thread. PC was the lead platform for the game, but all that means is that it got first cut at design and implementation. The console version was always going to be a simultaneous release, and has a bigger target market. DICE/EA doesn't have infinite resources, so it's a simple fact of life that some compromises would have to made to get it to run on consoles.

If you want the bar raised, you've got raise the lowest common denominator, which is the console hardware. Until then, the best we as PC gamers can do is show our appreciation when we get something more than a damn console port. And BF3 does not look or feel anything like a port.

There was talk of a high texture patch and that's not coming now. Then, BF3, a game were were told that the PC was the lead on, was switched to consoles. It just adds insult to injury.

We all know the PC can more and is more powerful, but that power doesn't show itself in that magnitude over 6 year old consoles.

Yup and it wont untill we see the next gen consoles. Also the reason the console section is dead is because most of them are in here trolling the PC gamers. Maybe MikeC could give us the sub forum for PC and let all the millions of so called console players use the main forum...ahhh wait i just realised, we havent even got a forum for PC gamers...ok nm

I mean, apart from the menus and small parts of map design, there is nothing in this game that looks like a port from a console to me...

Had they come out and said "See!!! This is how you make a game... PC all the way!!!" would anyone dispute that statement for any reason?

I doubt it.

The game looks great, the game runs great, and it's loads of fun.

Correct it doesn't and comes closer to how BF should be than it has since 2142. Question is if it wasn't for PC gamers 'complaining' would we have even got BF3 or would we have settled for BFBC3 ?

Well, clearly Xbox360 users are too busy to install the high resolution texture pack that DICE made for them. Console users are not bothered about fidelity right?

DICE wasted their time but they didn't really because they just took the textures from the PC version.

If it was a port it would have:

Crappy drawn distance.
Bad LOD.
No Advanced graphics options
No proper DX11 support.
Keyboard and mouse options would be an extra option which we would have to thank them 100 times for and sacrifice some virgins.
Low fidelity effects and textures
