    I am keeping an eye on the live blog of the EA press conference right now; I don't think I could get away with streaming the video as I am at work! :(

    Think the decision about upgrading has been taken out of my hands after watching that vid.

    I do not really care about running it now i 'need' to run it MAX

    Holly batshit Robin, KAAABOOM!! COD is no more.

    What an amazing looking game. Bye bye sick-days, vacation days, 8hrs sleep, steady job, happy mariage. Hello centerlink, strong coffee, divorce. The balance of real-life and TOG game-time is about to under-go a re-evaluation. Let the BF3 madness begin.

    OFFICIAL UPDATE:
    As a result of the recent BF3 video, the countries of COD, TF2, MOH, are experiencing a cival unrest, a mass exodus. The entire populations are crossing the boarder, into neighbor country BF3. For the residence of BF3 (Veterens), this will cause endless queus at the Jet and Heli spawn points. Hords of noobs, holding down E, just camping. Once they achieve the task of getting in the jet, will surely crash within 10 seconds into mountain at end of airstrip. As a result DICE has issued P plates for non-veteran players. You must complete 10hrs of the Jet pilot training module in single player, to earn your P plate. Without the P plate, you can not get into jet on PUB. So much for wishing.

    More interesting snippets from one of the Dev's Twitter Feeds: http://twitter.com/#!/L_Twin



    I'm sure there will be a lot more info over the coming days (I think I read somewhere that Thursday will be a big day of BF3)

    ive got annual leave booked in for this.

    http://bf3blog.com/2011/08/complete-list-of-battlefield-3-weapons/


    Theres no evidence to substantiate this list. No more CG :D however the SMAW should do just fine :biglol: we can spam that instead
    However i think the build they are playing at Gamescom is probably very close to being the Beta. I would hazard at a guess we would get the commo rose by the time the beta rolls round

    Graphically, it's looking absolutely stunning. I hope it backs it up with gameplay. The footage looked fantastic though I'm sure it was a co-ordinated push by both sides to fight over a small piece of turf for action shots.

    I wanted BF3 to be good enough to keep me away from COD, if it's even remotely like the above footage there should be no problems whatsoever.
