I uploaded it because it was taken down from the original site, plus it keeps getting killed on youtube although you might find it up there again if you prefer to stream it.
 
Highlights:
 
Earthquake rips ground apart.
Building collapses and hits a chopper. 
Prone in effect.  
Disarming a bomb.
Mounted Gun used.
Day/night cycle shown .
Quick montage featuring a player using tanks and jets, a city under attack, artillery and jumping off a mountain.
 
Edit: added a link to the higher quality version. Not a huge difference but a bit better.

Well, it's good at building up the suspense :P I think mediafire is better but whatever man, I'm glad to watch it nonetheless.

 @Metal_Mills:  Dunno if it's because I'm in Norway, but I got about 30 kb/s. Can't wait to see it though - when it's finished in 12 minutes. :p

Cool stuff. Though I'm still too anxious to see more of the multiplayer to get overly excited. Already know the game looks Amazing but right now all I want to see is mutliplayer!
 
Also.. EFF mutliplayer.it for the teasing way they rolled out their logo when the presentation started. I saw "multiplayer" in the corner and went "awesome!" and then saw the ".it" folding in and went all "aaw.. *sad face*"

I don't think that was an earthquake. I think it was an aftershock caused by detonating a nuke underground. Like in Broken Arrow. Remember Broken Arrow? No? Why the hell do I?

Cool shit, but I really don't care about singleplayer stuff. I want to see how the game plays in MP.  
God I hope there's no animation every time you drop a few feet, and every time you mount a machine gun - in multiplayer, that is.

A Battlefield game with weapon models/handling on par with, or possibly better than Call of Duty could rule the world.

Does it look and play as good as what they showed in the official gameplay trailer?

As impressed as I was with the gameplay footage, the tech demo at the end blew me away just as much. Holy shit. Realism of effects is mind bottling.

Even with the lack of quality from the cam, the earthquake (or aftershock) footage looked amazing and the snippets of parts of the game with the airplanes and tanks are enough to continue to remind me to upgrade my computer ASAP.

asap ? no no no my friend u got it all wrong 
you upgrade 1-2 months before BF3 is out, not as soon as possible ! 
 
you'll know the recommended system requirements by then, and the parts will be much cheaper than they are now !

I'm sure they will make it work for everyone. And as long as you don't watch too much PC gameplay footage in high definition the difference of the picture quality won't bother anyone either.. well, if the game is great that is. :)

True, though I am dragging what most would consider an aged computer by now.  The graphics card is ok but a dual core with 2gb ram is not ideal anymore hehehe.  Upgrading to i7 sandy bridges eventually unless there is some new crazy CPU im unaware of, but I don't want to spend crazy amounts on one single part.

Hmm... it kinda sucks how the earthquake sequence took place when you were on a turret.

Actually, that whole mounted gun sequence looked weak. Seriously, mounted guns suck :/

Those guns have zero recoil. Prone confirmed though. Also at one point a group of soldiers jump off a snow covered mountain to escape what i can only assume to be an explosion. I really wish they'd stop showing off their generic as all hell singleplayer, WHERES THE IMPORTANT PART DICE?

@Mikemcn: The recoil is probably lower for single player in general.

 I don't think it's an earthquake neither as an earthquake produces a tremor in a generalized area that everyone feels at the same time in that specific area, same goes for an aftershock from an earthquake. Here you see a shockwave coming from the building direction going towards you and it looks more like it comes from an underground nuclear detonation. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
