But SERIOUSLY

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-for...-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.
I have to be honest here, the only whining I've seen on this site is about the loss of gaming complexity for favor of cheap profit. Its well known console gamers don't care, and when they do they don't know what they are talking about.

There have been rumours of console feature cuts in favour of the PC(due to laziness, see the irony?), some console players are in fact relieved by this news. I just hope PC's and consoles can both survive in this market with both benefiting, although this is a dream that probably will never come true.

I don't know why DICE have to sound so apologetic. People spent $200 on a console back in 2006 and FIVE YEARS LATER they still have the opportunity to play one of the latest upcoming games - the same opportunity that is being offered to people who've spent $3000+ on gaming PC's over that time.
Console gamers should be thankful that BF3 is even running on their ancient toasters and stop demanding explanations from developers why they're games are "lacking" or whatever. You've had your countless hours of fun on your cheap-ass console over the years. I'm still waiting to be blown away by my drastically more expensive (and new) PC.

Saw this mentioned in an IGN video....the flame wars are ridiculous. This one guy was saying how the PS3 was on level with the PC in graphics and how controllers are more pro than a mouse and keyboard cuz the mouse and keyboard was too easy to use. I was just like "lolwut?"

But on topic I'm glad they aren't dumping down the PC version cuz of consoles and making the game specifically tailored to the platform its on (for pc and console versions).

Meh... Don't care about consoles. Everybody know that PC gaming is the best gaming experience for shooters. Consoles are just money slightly limited if you compare with PC.

Too right DICE should favour the PC. The PC is more technically abled and therefore should receive special treatment. Simple as that. Consoles have had the top stuff for too long now and it's about time the only platform that can handle the extras gets them.

Avoid IGN like the plague and stay here. Problem solved!

I am sure this game will be great on consoles too. I only use my PS3 as a backup in-case my PC dies so at least it will be playable if that should ever happen. 24 players is fine for console. But I would never buy it full-price for the PS3. I am talking like $30 here. Cut game = cut price.

I recently played Modern Warfare on the PS3. It was a joke. Servers are crappy and laggy. Matchmaking is hideous and I kept getting kicked out of the room. 24 (?) people and graphics that sucked balls. Using a PS3 Controller? I need not comment. The PC version on the other hand is still wonderful to look at and play and is like Counter-Strike: It will be playable for a LONG time.

If people actually used their PS3 as I do (PS3-only single-player games, Blu-Ray player, back-up machine for PC) then people would honestly understand better that a PS3 is NOT a modern day gaming PC, but is based on one. It is a much cheaper alternative and you get what you pay for. It is good for teenagers and families.

...Sucks to be poor.

I went just for some lulz before bed but all I saw was a bunch of people saying "64 is too much, 24 is good but 32 would be just right."

They are still getting more players then cod, with amazing graphics, and weapons, semi-destructable environments etc. Its still going too be an amazing game for them.
Agreed, if it werent for consoles half the games would not be developed and ported over to the pc because pc sales alone would mean a huge loss for companies. Im not blaming pirates but pc gamers are generally smarter than console gamers and find means of playing a game without purchasing it. A good example would be single player only games.
