The CVG article shows a screenshot from (I think) pre-1.0 release... nice.

It's also likely a stock photo, which is the norm for e-news and even tv news these days... which is a shame (though sometimes funny when Fox is talking about playstation MW3 or something and has a stock photo of the gen one PS or when some site use a picture of an Atari box or something equally stupid to us gamers)

I understand using discretion when new gameplay is about to be featured in less than two weeks, but I'd love for SE to give us just one or two screenshots. I mean what's the harm in that? Especially for those of us still waiting for the PS3 release. It has been too long since we've seen something concrete in regards to what our experience will be like.

I'm curious to see how the PS3 compares to the PC. Obviously PC will look better, but I'm currently playing DCUO for the PS3 and there are often some significant lag issues due to what I'm assuming are PS3 limitations.
