BF:BC2 is the latest one and there are tons of people playing it and an endless amount of servers.

Granted BF3 is due for later this year, but I'm sure BF:BC2 will be with us for some time.

Online play is all I'm buying this for. I did not even know there was a lonely campaign mode

Now forgive my ignorance... but does the online battles mix platforms? Or... would me on a PC play against someone playing on his xbox? Or does each platform get their servers?

No all platforms are seperate just like every other game ever created. Except I think weren't they trying to mesh PC and Xbox gamers with Halo 2 or something?

Couldnt find where Baza actually says this ( didnt spend a ton of time searching either )but looks like it will be a couple of weeks before Steam has it.

Baza has said it will be roughly 2 and a half weeks before the Steam version is sorted, the new patch needs time to settle down first so every server is where it should be and there's no major issues, because that wouldn't look very good to new players.
EDIT: Gord or anyone for that matter can join the Battlefield Steam Group and it should keep you up to date.

Only that it causes major unbalance. We all know keyboard and mouse trumps controller any day of the week

Are you actually gonna download it? Won't it take like 5 weeks for you? How will you even play? I would totally rage if I had your net connection.
