EA and DICE sent out Battlefield: Bad Company to the stores a couple of days ago, making Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions available in both Europe and the US. Here are the first minutes from the latter version of this brilliant game, showing some of the main components of the game: humour, destruction and vehicles. You will also see some of the great graphics and amazing sounds.
Judging from the words above, I suppose it's easy to understand that I like the game. Technically the graphics engine really impress as well as the sound, but it's too early for me to say too much about the gameplay. The online multiplayer has a solid mode and there will also be another mode added by patch later on. There are also demos available of this game on both the Marketplace and PSN.
The video below shows the first mission in the game, enjoy!

and game engine graphics pipelines or even programming interfaces for their products. None of that is their role in the whole thing.. and it shouldn't be. (7 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: Nvidia and AMD already do help developers with optimization more than they should have to. Nvidia and AMD should be improving the hardware and driver end of the technology and not worrying (7 Hours ago)
