But since the game is basically a BC2 with different title and different sound, I'm not entirely eager to play it.

Someone who played the Alpha of BF3 said it was nothing like BC2.

BF3Blog.com: Bach assured that while console maps would be smaller, they wouldn’t be “cut in half”, but instead would be “compacted slightly” to increase the action.

If you play an FPS with a controller, John Carmack smacks you in the face! Yes, he has warmed his pimp hand for the release of Rage!

Chat, server management, cheating, massive hardware advantages tedious on pc?

Chat is much easier on pc, many servers have ts servers where you can join them, if you choose not to use that, thats your problem. People play more as a team on pc too as Operation Hastings being unlocked on PC first showed. While on 360 despite most people having mics they are too busy screaming for milk from mommy and racist comments.

I never encountered any hacks in BC2, not saying it doesnt have any but when someone hacks they are banned from the server immediately.

Massive hardware advantages? if the game isnt running well lower your settings, if it doesnt run at the lowest settings, you need to upgrade that P4.

Also nobody cares where you and your friends will be, BC2 sold the most on PC and the BF3 will probably sell the most on PC as well.

Why? Does anyone realise that the console gamers are usually just casual gamers and dont really give a damn? If you were too talk too them about how much better it will be on PC than theyr console, they will just think your a total d-bag.

Look at this forum:
http://www.xbox360forum.com/xbox-forum/forums/233-Battlefield-3

Ive seen TWO people on that forum say that it would be better with more players, in comments in threads. Ive scanned through it, too confirm it too myself - console players care less then you do.

Seriously, the amount of people on here that go on about how the console players are whinging, why? They are not. It seems rediculous, the amount of people on this forum that are seemingly just trying too make them feel better then others.

They also have planes and stuff in the game and all the effects they use by next consoles it should be able to use a lot more players. But games on PS3 can use a lot of players look at MAG had like 256 players and the graphics were decent. I think because its gone multiplatform they cant fit it on the 360. The PS3 I can see it cause the blu ray.

more disk space = more players. obviously

I don't get the thing with this. I'm perfectly happy with 24 players. I know the limitations of the consoles and accept them. I'll be perfectly happy with my console version of BF3.

Gamers should be more respectfull to eachother. Who cares what platform you use. As long as you have fun playing it.

I'm just happy that Dice isnt porting this from console. Consoles are getting a pc port, they should feel honored. Good to see a company that still cares very much about its pc gamers. It's very hard to find these days.
