    I'm getting this game, for the XBox, on Thursday night/Friday morning. I'm taking my youngest fella down to Game with me, so he can 'savour' the atmosphere to be had on new release day.

    I didn't think I would get it, because the graphics on the Beta were naff. However, one of the guys in the local store said he's been to E3 and played the proper game (not the Beta) and it was amazing. So, I'm going to give it a go.

    I think MW3 will be on the Christmas list though, just in case. :)

    I am thinking on getting it as well... On the Xbox though. MW3 is the game I am waiting for!

    Got BF3 yesterday. Have to say it kicks serious ass. It comes with 2 discs, one for single player campaign, and the other for Multi-Player, Co-Op and HD. So, if you've got HD capability, and a hard drive to install the files on, you're going to see some really great stuff on the screen.

    In multiplayer you get to ride and drive all sorts of vehicles, including tanks and helicopters. :-)

    So far, I'd give it a 9.5/10.

    I'll be getting it on the PC :)

    So far the two cheapest places to purchase BF3 is Zavvi (you get a free 3 month sub with it) and Simplygames. Both are offering it for £29.85

    Does this game have LAN capabilities? Or is it online only?

    I believe you will get far bigger multiplayer on the PC version... 64 as opposed to 24, with presumably a bigger map area.

    Got this on Friday and I have to say WOW! this is a awesome game. Only problem when you try to join with friends in a squad you get put onto different teams. Very strange hope this gets fixed soon.

    Got this for the 360, loving it so far! Have some issues trying to get games and some odd lag... other than that all good. :)

    I believe the team issue is being address I read on another forum!

    I have a 64 slot PC server running for this, it's hosted on the Killer Creations network which offers really good latency and support.

    Anyone interested in the server please do a search for "Baa Baa Moo" in the server browser.

    Anyone with the clan tag [BBM] on that server are admins (myself and two life long friends).

    So, what's the thought on BF3? Does anyone played it on both PC & 360?


    I got a 2008 iMac which I'm tempted to bootcamp and try it out. Not sure whether it meets the specs, but I'll have to check.

    Or, I'll use my housemate's Xbox360 (and pay for a Live account).
