PC Leading BC2: Vietnam Battle for Hastings

The Battlefield Bad Company 2 Website has an update on the race to unlock the Operation Hastings map in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam. The fifth map in the military shooter sequel will unlock for each platform when 69 million team actions are performed, with resupply, revive, heal, spot, and repair each qualifying as actions. As of now, the PC is not only leading either console version, but has had more team actions than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 combined. As of right now, they show 60,673,916 PC actions compared with 31,759,276 on the Xbox 360 and 23,988,624 on the PS3.

Yeah, you still get connection differences and monitor differences, though these days the bulk of people playing at all seriously are on HD of some form.

Are you sure about that? I could swear that I read somewhere that a large portion of console gamers still use SDTV.

And your analogy is ridiculously one-sided. You claim that any serious console gamer will have an HDTV but then claim that PC gamers would use $500 laptops as their primary gaming platform? Let's be realistic here. Any serious PC gamer is going to have a decent PC. The rare gamer with a $3000 PC isn't really going to have a huge advantage over someone with a $1000 PC. Playing at 2560x1600 at 120 FPS doesn't give a player a serious advantage against someone playing at 1280x720 at 50 FPS unless they're playing Quake 3.

Multi-monitor support might give a player a wider FOV but then again, many games let you change your FOV anyway regardless of how many displays you have.

On consoles the only real differences is HD vs non-HD.

That's a pretty significant difference. Most modern games aren't designed for SD displays, resulting in illegible UI and text. HD displays are generally much larger than SD displays as well, making it easier to see stuff while standing further away from the TV.

Sometimes knowing you're getting those kills because you're better at using the tools you're given is more satisfying than wondering if you're just getting them because you spent way more on a graphics card.

Oh please. Given that the vast majority of "high-end" PC games these days are console ports (such as BC2), any PC with a $100 videocard is more than capable of getting a constant 60 FPS at a reasonable resolution. Will more expensive cards let you ramp up the resolution, AA and detail settings? Sure, but none of those things offer a significant advantage when it comes to competing against other players.

If you seriously think "He only killed me because he has a better videocard!" when playing multiplayer PC games, I think that speaks more to your own insecurity than any disadvantages your hardware may have.
