    Just wondering, how much different graphics wise is this game? Are they using the same engine? Just curious because my graphics card is now listed in Custom PC as a 'budget card' :(

    It will be using a new game engine.
    FrostBite 2.0
    And your HD5850 is fine for now.
    And as for Battlefield 3 you HD5850 won't max out at Full HD.
    But it will play the game :D

    $10 for the preorder, $88 when I pick it up on release day. It's limited edition so I probably get a bunch of goodies with it. Apparently it won't be on steam until after release, or not at all, and EA games are always overpriced on release in AUS, so I thought, screw it, origin sucks and it's not on steam, might as well buy a retail one.

    $98 :eek::eek::eek::eek:

    It costs 21.2349 AUD on Origin in India :D
    And 31.8716 AUD this for the limited edition :p :p :p

    Still not even with US based on the hardware prices.

    Australia is one of the most expensive places to live.

    Remember that 2560mb gtx570 that would cost $450 to import? They have them here now, for $455 + shipping.

    I'd be waiting until after launch to have that question answered.

    From the BF3 EULA

    I don't see the big problem, but people are finding it to be a reason not to buy the game

    This is the part which I do not like.
    Anyways I do not give a cr*p about EULA.

    @Sdot Your 4850 x2 is fine for now.And please try out the game on it before you upgrade.Requirements do not give the best idea of how the game would perform on a computer, until and unless you actually play it.I am using my GTX 275 on a Full HD screen and playing games like BFBC2 Max resolution and medium detail without any problem,and at a pretty nice frame-rate.

    My honest opinion is, this game will drive sandy/ivy / bd sales, as anything less is going to struggle i think.

    People play WoW even though it scans your entire system for what is open and don't complain about it. Unless you say they can contact you, they can't, so where is the big problem? Unless you have something to hide, who cares

    I doubt it, DICE and EA would lose out way too much by cutting off a massive section of the market. Very, very, very few people have a Sandy Bridge or Bulldozer chip, where as the majority of gamers have either a Core2, Nehalem, Athlon II or Phenom II system, and even less of those people will build an entire new system just for one game.

    I see no reason why this game, which must also be compatible to outdated console technologies, will require so much power that it will jump entire generations. No game out now needs an i5/7 to run or even struggles without one, and there is 0 reason to believe why this game wouldn't run well on the "average" technology being used
