Medal of honor was a beta, because after a month it closed, a week was used to fix bugs then the game got shipped out! Win win and in general it was a good game (although I am trading it in later this month along with a few other games to get some moneys off my xbox live subscription)

They are not ultra PC images as ultra textures were not included in the beta.
They also appeared here for a similar discussion: http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/b...-settings.html

Fair enough, its still decent enough for a console!! It is comparable to PC on high then...

Yep 100% PC will look vastly better as well as having 32/64 man where as console is 24 max. Xbox and PS3 are DX9 equiv consoles so the PC is far ahead.
I am pretty sure BF3 will support DX11 features as well such as tessellation which always looks pimp and this is before we get to 3D vision which rocked in BC2.

Granted pc is superior...I just hate having to continually upgrade...and BTW, Xbox slim and ps3 are dx10 equivalent...so not too far behind :-)

Erm no?? the ps3 and xbox (slim has no enhanced graphics) have DX9 feature set with a few extras but its no where near dx10 feature set and this is before we get to dx11. Consoles are like DX9+ but not DX10 and this is before we get to memory limitations.

Likewise! It's costly and time consuming, however I've not upgraded for 6 years now, so I think it's about time I invested in a new rig. And BF3 is the perfect excuse for it..... provided I can convince the wife of course!

Yeh upgrades can be a pain but it really depends on how much value/hours you get out of them. I get a good entertainment to £ ratio from my pc and poor from my consoles as nowadays I dont play on them.

See I used to absolutely own on the PC, I spent a good few hours a day on there, but since developing carpal tunnel, I had to stop until I have my operation. I since turned to my xbox and seemingly get much more enjoyment, I haven't rage quit on the console whereas I used to on the PC where people were clearly using hacks but not getting caught by punkbuster/VAC/ACI etc.
I suppose its swings and roundabouts, if I was using the PC more, then I would probably not be moaning, but its sheerly for the fact that it causes so much pain (literally) that I enjoy my console more.
PC wise - since last year I have spent maybe 10 hours a week at the most on the PC/Laptop
Xbox - since last year I have spent up to 5 hours in an evening not realising how much time has passed on there (the mrs will tend to watch if I am playing a shooter)

Likewise. Usually my missus does not have an issue with me investing in good kit because I use my PC a lot and she knows it will last a good few years and we will get value for money from it. Barely a day goes by where I don;t use my PC for one reason or another. Recently, I was happy with my old 19" LCD monitor that was almost 6 years old. The wife moaned at me recently and practically made me go out an buy a 24" widescreen! God I love her!!!!
