So I am for sure buying this game on ps3 when it releases whether I get it on pc or not so dont think that this is about how the beta made me not want to play.

but my laptop is not a gaming laptop and doesn't run the game on anything but the lowest settings with some serious tweaks to my graphics card and fan controls and other things like that. and I dont really have a problem with that. after I finally got the beta working on it though it was running nice and smooth not much lag at all as long as I wasn't crafting, but after the update the other day my lag is brutal. mobs dont load until someone else has already killed them. I pretty much only see players if they are standing still and moving my camera around is a good way for me to start running into a wall.

Now I guess my question is do you guys think that at launch this is how its going to be for me, did I just get lucky that first day I got it working and had no lag. or is it just something they patched that my computer doesn't like?

I am really looking for something to play just for the few hours a week that I am free and if I can make this game playable I want it to be this, but I dont wanna buy the PC version just to have it not playable at all.

If the beta didn't run well for you, retail will be even worse. Sadly, most non-gaming laptops (especially older ones) don't stand much of a chance running this game. Sure, it'll work a little bit, but if it were me I'd be too frustrated by the lag and ****** framerates to really enjoy playing. In my opinion, you're better off getting the PS3 version if you don't mind waiting that long.

todays update made the lag even worse for me. I am thinking every time they add something its getting a bit harder for my computer to run it. I guess that lends to the release version will be even worse.

:( really didn't wanna have to wait till ps3

My PC would have barely run the beta. Sadly, as much as I want to be, I'm not just yet in the market for a new one. I'll be waiting till March, and salivating over any new details that are talked about here.
If you're already having trouble running the beta, pull up a chair and hang out. It's gonna feel like a long six months. On the bright side, any issues should be ironed out by the PS3 release.

Look on the bright side. Waiting 6 months for the PS3 release is 6 months you don't have to spend playing through bugs and tweaks. You get the advantage of playing a smoother game and your PC peers should have shared a load of new information so you don't have to start completely blind and clueless either.

This. Don't worry, you won't miss much early on.
