    WANT.

    And what wuyanxu says - news about the multiplayer will be hotly anticipated.

    We can only write what we know, and unfortunately all we know is in the last paragraph. Just gonna have to be patient I'm afraid!

    Further proof from the DX9 debate, from Repi's Twitter account:

    Let me clarify again: #BF3 requires Win Vista or Win7 together with a DX10 or DX11 capable GPU. Neither WinXP nor DX9 GPUs are supported

    I highly recommend it, I decided to pick up a used 5870 and it provided a huge improvement in most games.

    Damn - time to upgrade by 4850... Been playing BF2 forever and all my hardware upgrades were based on running that, so it's time for a major upgrade I suppose. Multiplayer was the whole point of the game - if I wanted single player I'd play the AIX extension.

    I just want BF2 on steroids...

    dx10 should all ways be supported as dx11 supports dx10 in dx11 mode just with I think 1-2 bits turned off (avp does it) could be incorrect thought

    It'll support DX10 class HW , DX10 is a subset of DX11.

    Yep I appreciate that :) It wasn't a dig at BT or anything; am just saying generally that news about the multiplayer would be great.

    I have been looking forward to this game since I got wind of it nearly 3 years ago. Already got my collectors copy on pre-order with the expansion pack. :D.

    Clive, was about to comment on the DX11 only and ANT comments but then saw the tweets from Repi. Great to see you can talk directly to the developers.

    Regarding the discussion on the podcast about PC lead development; from my understanding this means that technology and design will come from the PC first, then filtered down to consoles (e.g. 24 player m/player compared to 64 on PC).
    When they talk about consoles as the 'base' platform I understand this as the minimum for features and gameplay. They are not starting on consoles, then building up to the PC, as most development is nowadays.

    We've confirmed that BF3 will be DX11 and DX10 only, doubly, just to be sure. Clive was clearly told on the day that Crysis 2 uses ANT, and we're waiting on a second confirmation on that.

    Shaping up to be a 'collectors edition' worthy of the name
