    pretty sure there are no options to change settings in game, only quick match settings, it wont even let me run at full screen :idea:

    Can the game only be ran at medium settings? I hope this is true because I wasn't exactly blown away by the youtube footage of alpha...

    The Alpha can only be run at medium settings. Not the game itself.

    Also most of the youtube footage here is off the PS3 version i believe.

    Yes that's what I meant hehe, still it looks good for medium settings, I was a bit worried that the graphics weren't too clever seeing all the hype for it!

    It's OK, we can all imagine how exciting getting into the alpha must have been!

    It was awfully nice of the COD guys to decide to release MW3 on my birthday this year, but by the looks of things I might be passing over it in favour of Battlefield 3 this time round.

    my workmate got an alpha invite, but didnt have a pc to run it on. so i threw myself on the sword and took mine round to his and played it all today. absolutely brilliant graphics and hardly and bugs for an alpha build

    did anyone else have it where it would randomly freeze/crash part way through a game? i had to get the beta drive 275.50 for my 560 ti's and am not sure if its the game or drivers?
