Just one more day is left for the arrival of the highly anticipated Battlefield 3 for PC and consoles. The main reason why the game has drawn so much attention is because of its graphics, which seem to be pushing the boundaries of what is currently possible in games, in a way no game has done since the original Crysis came out four years ago.
From what I can tell, it is going to be the best looking game on the PC. But what if you have a console? Well, EA has an optional HD texture pack for you which will bump up the texture quality to make the game look almost as good as the PC version.

We have seen screenshots of the redesigned Xbox 360 dashboard before that uses the slick new Metro UI but now a video has leaked that gives us a nice little tour of the interface and all the various menu options that we can expect to see when the update is released this fall.
