I hope it wasn't a BS story from yet another developer then. Things seem to change on final release.

One would like to assume that since it's from this publication, you could believe it.

If it turns out to be a lie, modding community justice will be swift.

I've got the game for the xbox (we have early release dates here) and the graphics are, not to be blunt, lame. Is the difference between consoles and pc THAT big?

Don't know, don't think anyone has it on the PC yet, I'll let you know tomorrow tonight... the xbox is equal to about a 4-5 year old PC, any game that had decent graphics back then was, well... pretty lame compared to what's out now...

What's lame about the graphics on the xbox, the animations, the textures, the resolution, the poly count, the AA/AF... etc?

Also remember that xbox has the optional install similar to BF3 I believe. there are some screenshots floating around of the 360 with slow loading textures/blurry stuff and I'm willing to bet that they're playing it from disk vs installed to hdd.

Check video 13 (not installed to HD) at 21 minutes because it's outside, and 14 (installed to HD, as the narrator/gamer states early in the video) during the first 25 percent or so, for the best comparison. Both are blurry, low quality videos compared to what you'll see when you play, assuming you've got a decent display, but you can see how it runs. Both videos show it to run well and load similarly.

To be honest, I can hardly believe what the developers can get out of such outdated hardware. On the PC side, the power of the hardware is impressive, on the console side, the skill of the developer to truly leverage the hardware becomes the impressive part. It seems like PC games are usually written more sloppily, because they can, due to the power of the hardware, and much less sloppily on the console side due to that they HAVE to write less sloppily for the thing to work, much less be competitive. Anyway...

Oooops, looks like they pulled the plug. A ton of narrated, mostly non-spoiler gameplay footage yanked. Sorry guys.
