And don't get me wrong, I REALLY REALLY hope you're right, Caspian Border looks unreal.
No offense but you make it sound like there's only one team working on the game. There are teams for each platform, with the PC being the main platform.
Keep in mind the consoles are already watered-down by having 24 players and smaller maps. And as I said, they have different teams working on each platform so that is not an issue.
Trust me when I say this: If Metro is used in beta, many pre-orders will be cancelled. I was in Alpha and let me tell you, Metro left much to be desired since it was 32 players, rush, and no jets. Essentially BC2.
DICE, and especially EA when it comes to $$$, are not dumb. If they want to draw an audience, they will have to give players a TRUE taste of BF3 meaning Caspian Border.
Just like the Metro gameplay video, they showed Caspian for a reason; it's what we will play in beta.
