I tried it out on PC, I don't care for origin, I already have a steam account don't need another similar application running. The battlelog, which I really hope they get rid of or implement within the game .exe itself, I don't like. I just have a really bad feeling about launching a game through a browser addon, I imagine someone is going to find a way to exploit this. Not to mention I don't want 2 addition applications running in the background in addition to the game.exe itself. I would rather the resources be free for the game itself, but enough ranting about battlelog, I could go on though. Like how come I can log into ea's websites, and origin but I can no longer access battlelog because I use special char's in my password?

As far as gameplay is concerned, I was really hoping to play the 64 player conquest map but it has a password and was stuck playing rush mode, which I really don't care for. Not to mention I kept loosing connection about 10 min's into gameplay. To be fair the graphic's were nice, and the little bit I played I did have fun except for the fact that I was getting owned due to not knowing the map very well. Also didn't help getting killed while trying to adjust my settings which you have to do while you are in a map.

Other than that I'm still looking forward to playing BF3, can't wait really. LOL
