Don't tell me you haven't been around BC2 rel on pc and what a crap-fest that was on release. With this a lot more rides on it for EA so they will make sure EVERY issue is patched and every little nagging detail is addressed. The alternative is to lose to Cod which releases a whole month later, its during that time BF3 either wins or loses the war.
Yep, BC2's in-game browser was inop on release and then died again months later after a patch for some of us with a hardware firewall. There was a period of several weeks where I couldn't play a game that I had been playing for months.
I'm glad to see the in-game browser gone.
I'm pretty sure the game play portions of the beta were obsolete when they were released. I know that was the case with the BC2 beta.
Finally if NVIDIA gets an official driver out on time I expect BF3 to be quite playable on release day.
