The previous fun I have had with the Battlefield series has always been with people I know and I can safely say they will only be getting the console version so its the console version for me.

PC is the right answer. You're doing it wrong when picking up console version.

It would depend on my situation I guess. For the next year, I'm most likely not going to have a console so I'll probably just get it on PC.  
 
If I had a free choice, it would come down to the features that matter to me. Player counts don't really matter to me, but if there's some meaningful difference in content then I'd choose that version.

Probably normal retail (PC), but I'm waiting to see everything included in the pre-order.

Why are there so many options? That's just kind of confusing.

PC Pre-Order Version, unless it takes more than a 460 GTX to run it, which I doubt.

Since every retail box being produced in the first 3 months will be 'Limited Edition', as per usual with EA games these days, every Day 1 buyer will get a Limited Edition.
 
I'll get the PC Limited Edition. Maybe even a collectors edition, if there's gonna be such a thing. I might get the PS3 version too, depending on review scores. There's definitely gonna be quite a difference in gameplay between the console and PC versions. PC version supports 3x more players than the console version.
 
Luckily I'm prepared for it hardware wise. Really looking foward. Hoping there's gonna be native gamepad support for vehicular gameplay (I'd actually do everything with gamepad).

PC Collector's Edition. Boxed. Definitely.

Probably a steam pre-order if it's worth it and not overprice.

I voted Normal Retail (PC). 
Then I realized you get the Karkand map by pre-ordering, so that's what I actually wanted to vote...

Hoping for limited edition on steam, but if that doesn't happen then a limited edition preorder will do just fine.

I voted console because there's no way my laptop could run it and I'm just used to controllers.  I'm well aware of which version will be the best though, the 3DS version.

Steam has announced a price?  Given that both EA and amazon have it at $49

Why the hell are you browsing, and replying on, an internet forum while driving?!  It's people like you that cause easily preventable accidents.

I don't think they have, but they're usually the same as the retail version, which is overpriced considering you're not getting anything physical.

I will buy the game from Steam either way, but I am hoping for the Limited Edition.

if i compare Steam to the price over at amazon.de for newly released games, most of the time it's higher on steam

If I end up buying it I'll probably be getting the regular 360 version. Not really a huge Battlefield fan and don't own a PC so console version for me.

Console limited hopefully (though im not sure what extras it has) because i don't have extra cash laying around to afford a gaming pc. If i could, i'd probably go pc seeing as the general consensus is its better on pc. Also, all this pc elitism is lovely...

If I get it, it will be retail console version, probably for my PS3. Why not PC you ask? Well, because Personal Computers are like anime, they are for jerks (<-- joke.... or is it?)

I will probably not buy it. I already got Bad Company 2 on Steam if I feel like playing a Battlefield game. The only multiplayer shooters I can play forever without getting bored is Halo

Going Steam Limited if it gets one. Otherwise Limited pre-order PC. Might rent it day-one on console if my pre-order doesn't arrive then.

Definitely the PC boxed version. As much as I love Steam, this is one of those "gotta have everything" moments.

The box art and stuff? C'mon, you know you gotta have the box eyeing you like crazy. Begging you to play him.

@KaosAngel EA often does not release DLC through steam, which makes intallation cumbersome. Dragon Age Origins comes to my mind here. This did not happen with Battlefield BC yet, but you never know.

Probably I will get the console version. The whole armchair&TV; vs. little monitor&office; chair argument. Also I consider using things like flight sticks cheating. Gamepads are a great equalizer. I prefer that.

 Oh, PC elitists, you guys are so nutty.  I guess I'm doing it wrong, but I'm picking up a PS3 copy.
