same question for every game? its very simply, in 99% of cases when a came is released on PC and other console. PC version usually comes on top.

only exception to that rule would have to be Splinter Cell Double Agent, they really ****ed up the PC version.

there is this magic thing called a cable, and you can plug in pretty much any HDTV to PC and have a bigger screan.

Patches. The developers have to make a seperate patch for D2D versions, and most of the time, it takes a much longer time for them to come out. Sometimes, they're even non-existant. So you're left with a buggy game that won't even get fixed, ever.

Heh, screw that then. I'll just have to deal with another box.

PC version WILL be better. While I love Mass Effect on 360 and I've played it through 5 times so far, the technical bugs eventually got the better of me. The texture popups, the odd random stutter and worse of all Disc Read Errors. It's the ONLY game that causes these errors, it's crashes the game and I have to pull the disc out put it in and away I go for another couple of hours.

Plus there is a good chance the PC version will have mods and editors.

Any limitations with the EA store? The only thing I've bought through them were the BF2 mini-expansions, which didn't require any keys.

The EA store is surprisingly good. They'll let you install any game on upto 3 machines at once and as far as I know you can play offline once the game is downloaded and decrypted.
