We like to see results.
They answered that someplace else. The reason is that they had to pass quality testing for PS3 and Xbox 360 before releasing beta and it took a while (was it 6 weeks?).
Now, for me personally, that's quite funny. I do get the logic, but for the PC being the lead platform and not needing extra steps before deploying game and applying updates not taking advantage of it is just moronic.
They showed that they much better have more buggy beta version that would get a lot of unneeded feedback on the features that they might have fixed and might miss any new bugs, which tend to appear every once in a while just not to enrage console users.
For me BC2 beta was so much better and so less buggy than BF3 and for all the issues they make general statements avoiding the issue most of the time. So much for PC being lead platform. Hope it won't be as bad as i see it. I just really don't want to wait 6 month for them to make something out of server browser (battlelog crap) to have at least the basic features like filter options saving, auto-join option etc that were a norm ever since CS days, but for DICE it's too advanced to ask at least for the same thing, since they can't make it better on their own in the 2011.
