To add to this, there are a bunch of new graphical features that are just starting to go into use, such as tesselation, which current high end hardware has a lot of trouble with. The life of a system built just before a new round of consoles and the implementation of a new Direct X is bound to be short. I wouldn't be surprised at all if all of the computers build for Battlefield 3 cant run new games with the graphics turned up in mid 2013.
