The PC platform isn't really dying though.

Yeah but it's in vogue right now to either be claiming PC gaming is dying or championing the platform.

I'm intrigued by the cover story. Personally I wouldn't hold out much hope that SOE can make a decent MMO anymore and with such a difficult license it will be even harder, but I look forward to reading what Edge have to say. (Still haven't finished last months issue yet.)

Basically it's DirectX creator Alex St John pimping the casual gaming portal WildTangent and the upcoming Wildtangent Orb thats he's became apart of. Saving PC gaming my arse!

As for Battlefield nothing PS3 specific is mentioned just the general opinion that the single-player is compromised and awkward and the multiplayer whilst fun is slightly lacking with a few oddities.
