    If your pc can run it, its likely the superior looking of all of them. But if your friends are on PS3 and you want to play online with them its a pretty easy decision..

    I've heard that the PC is the platform of choice if you want to have the deepest gameplay experience. PS3 and X360 versions contain the same game quality, but many have stated that the PC version feels the most "natural." On the flipside, as stated above, games such as MW2 are pretty taxing on mainstream systems, so make sure your computer meets the minimum requirements

    PC without a doubt. If your pc can handle it, there's no better platform for FPS games... period.

    I'd suggest against getting it for PC, the lack of dedicated servers may cause you to play with much higher ping than you'd like and the server being hosted on someone's sub par PC may also result in lag from time to time, this is what I've experienced from it so far.

    As much as I'm against non-dedicated servers, I haven't found it too bad.. The host migration is a pain in the butt if they leave. Most times I have full green bars for my ping.

    I'm a hardcore PC gamer, but I opted for 360. The reason being, the reason I buy a game for PC, the mod community, the dedicated servers, the competitive play, they took all that away. The reason I buy a game for 360's, is to play in person with my friends, and at parties... so just made more sense to get for 360. Looks amazing on an HDTV too.

    PS3 imo looks the worst out of the 3. Characters and effects (smoke/fire etc) looked best on PC but sometimes the screen seemed too dark. 360 seemed pretty good all around, but not amazing at everything.

    +1 i'd say 9/10 everything works for a nice 5 hour session, if it does screw up it's very out of the blue, you just reenter again and all is well until youre done playing.

    personnaly i can only do Fps with mouse and keyboard, but as said above get what your friends have, i'm on full settings for PC gphx and it's smooth as hell way better than PS3 but idk about 360, actually its a laptop but as said in another thread, if you could run MW and WaW on PC then you can definitely run this, even better if you had 50-70 fps.

    get what your friends have. Trust me. I have a 360 and most of my buddies have ps3 and they always play online with each other. I feel left out

    PS3, online is free. Although I do prefer 360 controllers. Either way, pick whichever one your friends are on. It's going to make the game that much more fun.

    I opted out for PC. Just because the of the sheer volume amount of hackers in PC gaming. I was all about FPS on PC. I don't want to play and deal with hackers using bots anymore...
