Although it would be neat, this isn't an issue. The minimal system specs clearly state a graphics card is required:
Graphic card: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible Nvidia or AMD ATI card, ATI Radeon 3870 or higher, Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT or higher.
Expecting any game like this to run on Intels IGP is somewhat of a stretch... if they ever get it to run it will look ghastly... the surface pro just isn't the right tool for the "job"... as previously mentioned, neither is any other ultrabook.

Contrast that to BF3, which is based on one of the most demanding graphics engines ever built. BF3 was designed explicitly to push the envelope in terms of graphics quality. It was deliberately built to redefine high end PC graphics. Expecting that to run on an Intel IGP, the lowest-end graphics hardware currently available, is a little ridiculous. It's like buying a Ferrari and strapping that to two horses, instead of ever turning on the engine. It just doesn't make much sense. Anyone buying that kind of game really should get the graphics hardware to do it justice.

Still, 26 FPS on lowest quality settings at 1024x768 isn't exactly what I would call sufficient for a competitive online first person shooter. For campaign mode, like you said, sure, why not.
Hope they get it running soon.

I just started playing bf3 again. Got really board with it for a while there. Once crises 3 comes out plus metro, gears of war. . . Lot of good games coming out soon. I'm afraid bf3 is about to collect some more dust. Multiplayer was never very challenging anyway, I was always first. It was like I was this invincible destruction of death walking around. You would die if I just looked at you. . . . Lol. . . . Yeah

The existence of widespread hardware fragmentation in both the Windows PC and Android space make them conceptually identical in this regard!
WP also wants to be a standardized platform... the console of the smartphone space, if you will.

I am always amazed when trolls decide to give their 2 cents. Thanks for the great contribution.

Always nice to see a fellow builder in the forums. I think my rigs have me spoiled and I wouldn't even want to play BF3 on the SPRO.
