    I wouldn't mind playing on my PC, but I'd honestly rather play on the Xbox 360 in my home theater area on my projector / screen and 7.1 system instead of on my PC in my office.

    It's cool, I'll switch my pre-order to 360.

    ...assuming I can figure out how.

    Yeah, I have a 120" screen with a great sound system for my tastes and a comfy couch to sit on. I realize I could hook my PC up to it, but it's not worth all the hassle just to play one game.

    I think the consoles put everyone on an equal playing field aside from individual skill and connection speeds. If I sacrifice a little bit of detail in graphics going console, oh well. I still have a nice PC I built, but I've long moved on from the days of spending hundreds of dollars almost yearly to gain a competitive edge in a game. Not to mention I won't have to upgrade my girlfriend's stuff, because she'll want to play BF3, too. The only downside I see for myself with getting the console version is not being able to use a flight stick.

    I'll bet most of the regulars on 360 are going to stick with the 360 for this, and they don't have shabby PCs either. There's another option, though....get both. :tongue:

    haha ..yah. It's ok, I can play other games on my PC (Mass Effect 3 for instance, whenever it comes out).

    Anyway, I managed to cancel the first pre-order so I'll switch over to 360 :)

    Free Expansion Pack & Limited Edition from Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Battlefield-3-...1591454&sr=8-1

    There will probably be a game credit, too, as the date gets closer.

    Battlefield has always been a PC game and by going to 360 version you're going to be missing quite a few good features. These might or might not be of importance to you.

    Quite frankly, I could play games on my big screen but it really doesn't compare to the monitor setup I have. 5760x1080 resolution on three 23" Samsung's using Eyefinity. The middle monitor is your main screen, what you would see with one display while the 2 others are "surrounds" giving you a side view. Sorry, can't do that with one screen no matter how big it is, and can't do that with a console until they maybe catch up on next generation cycle.

    Guess I'll have to settle on my single 55" TV/PC monitor because I'm not buying two more. :tongue:

    Yep, you have to then. I have the option to play on 61" 1080p or 116" 1080p but it would not be nearly as good as with 3 23" 1080p's linked together. You would have to experience it to appreciate it. Demands quite a lot from the PC though, Crossfire with a higher end card is a must as you're displaying 5760x1080.

    I'd love to see a pic of your setup, Sami. Aside from a few videos I've seen of running racing sims on three monitor systems like that, I'd never thought about it. Do most games have the capability built-in so there's 'surround' content to display on the side monitors? Or how does that work?

    Pictures don't really give you an idea of how good it is to sit in between those monitors but perhaps this will explain a little why a single large monitor will not duplicate the experience. BF:BC2.

    Gosh darn it. And I thought "all" I wanted for my computer was a new MOBO/CPU/RAM setup with a GPU upgrade down the road. Now I want some massive GPU power and an eyefinity setup. Curses!

    Do you use that setup with the Track IR and ArmaII as well?

    5870's are about $200 and two of those will power BC2 to 80fps. NVidia would be better performer for the money in SLI but unfortunately Eyefinity is ATI/AMD only while NVidia has their 3D. i7-950 clocked at 3.7GHz with entry level water cooler, will be installing a high end cooler that will cool CPU, both GPU's and NB chip once I build a custom case. Radiator on that thing is massive and most cases won't fit it. :(

    You also need an active Display Port adapter which is about $25.

    Planning to, once I have more time. Been spending half of the current year traveling all over the country and the rest building guns for night hunting. I just got this setup built recently. Hopping into a place in an hour to go to Silicon Valley once more.

    Here you go: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...7BBTkwCjCECjCE

    Only the price of a loaded PS3/XBOX system. Crossfire these and you're good for a long time... :tongue:

    Seriously though, two of these might be the answer, just find another one with a rebate and you're good to go. I think the 6870 while not as good as 5870 by itself, scales better in CF so it might get you better performance than dual 5870's. I went 5870 route as I already had one and adding another was $190.

    Hmm. This whole eyefinity thing is definitely something for me to look into when I start upgrading my computer again. Definitely a pretty large cost that I won't be able to afford for a while, but also definitely an eventual goal I'd like to meet.

    I'm really looking forward to this one. I recently built pc with i7-2600k and dual 6950's. I'll be looking forward to giving it some work. I would jump into multi monitor gaming but I'm still waiting for the day when they make thinner bezels. Heck, make 'em without.

    I'm looking forward to this. Though I did pre-order for 360, I'm going to do it for PC too, since it looks like a good number of folks will be on. Give my GTX580 something to do too.

    BTW I have a GTX480 for sale if anyone needs a GPU upgrade (in the For Sale).

    It looks like BF3 on PC will be 60 fps while consoles will be 30 fps it that matters to anyone:

    http://kotaku.com/5813389/console-ba...dern-warfare-3

    I'll probably still pre-order my copy for Xbox 360 today. BF2:bad company was 3- fps and I still love that game.

    As long as it's a stable 30fps, I'm fine with that, especially for this type of game. Crysis 2 was also locked at 30fps on console, and it was still one of the best-looking games I've seen on the 360. From the PS3 gameplay they had on Jimmy Fallon, I'm pretty sure the console versions will still look outstanding... and I'd much rather play in my home theater than on my computer in the bedroom.

    I complete agree with everything you said.
