I posted (at least I think) that I thought crysis 2 was going to suck purely because it was overhyped. They gave us no reason to believe it wouldn't be a console port otherwise when they released the details that it would be coming out for console. Whereas BF3 has specifically stated PC is getting special attention and have already laid out multiple features that the consoles gamers just can't do because of hardware limitations.
If BF3 turns out to be garbage I will have to sell my rig and find a new hobby or something I guess because then I will know all is lost. I also plan on upgrading my computer a few hundred dollars worth at least for BF3 so hopefully it doesn't disappoint.

Pretty much. I assume it would be easier to make lower resolution textures then make multiple ones and have some higher. Also wouldn't need to add in many of the things PC's can take advantage of and add in all the options for custom controls,graphics and everything else.
PC gaming is still on the rise though and I would assume more and more people would get bored looking at dirty looking textures all day and switch over to something more relaxing and enjoyable to play on.Edited by [nK]Sharp - 3/3/11 at 7:10pm
