Looks like they will be releasing that Pre-Order map pack for free to everyone, after all the backlash they got from the interwebz I'm sure.

Yup. The pre-order will now allow early access to the map pack, which tbh is good marketing to me. I will buy pre-ordering on steam if it is available there.

It'll be a hopped-up BC2 with bigger maps. It should be good.

They said that there is not a current computer that can run it _fully_ maxed out.

It depends on the view distance really. In BC2 I had problems with the choppers because I was unable to see them sometimes if they moved to far away, even on the smaller maps, but I could run that fully maxed out. I will gladly trade high settings, with AA, for medium settings, with no AA, for arma 2 like view distance.

BC2 view distance: 6850/460, playable @ 1920 w/ many high, some medium settings, no AA

arma 2 view distance: 6850/460, playable @ 1920 w/ some high, many medium, no AA

This is speculation though, and really I hope that it requires a 470 just to play the game smooth without AA on high settings. First pc gamers complain about consoles holding us back, then they complain about computer requirements! MAKE UP YOUR MIND! :P

Also, it isn't just BC2 with bigger maps! It will be better than that! (I hope :P)

It will be a Battlefield game. Can you really put it any other way? Anyways, here is footage of the BF3 running on the PS3.

that is most interesting...

perhaps because of the depth of field, or rather, the immensity of it?
