Great trailer, I missed gamescom though. They should have it up on their livestream for anyone wanting to watch it later.

Some things I noticed from the trailer..

8 friendly vehicles on the screen at once
Jets show up as tanks on the mini map
You can look left/right/up while in your jet
There may be an IED Robot in the game
Two jets and one helicopter per side

guessing the head movement was with IR Tracking? or was this console?
Don't put down the bottle... just tape it to the back of the shield and put a straw in it.  WIN!

The jet gameplay was pc as it was a 64player video. It doesn't necessarily have to be TrackIR, but it could be. The coop gameplay was ps3.

wonder how hard it would be to control using keyboard and mouse if they have it on consoles

I would expect to use the controller for jets/helicopters. Then again obsiv may be working on joystick support soon.

This.

I've been practicing using the controller for helicopters, never much liked jets.  The 360 controller works quite well for helicopters in BF2 on the PC.

I was pretty god like in heli's with regular old mouse and keyboard on BF2 PC. One problem I can see with jets is that on consoles most plane controls have you roll with the right stick (mouse) while yaw with the left (keyboard). Basically it's like strafing with the mouse while looking left and right with the keyboard. I've requested an optional feature to remedy this back in the Xim 2 days but I doubt OBs is going to invest time into such a radical addition for a couple of games.

Nopers...  Don't have BC2 for any platform.

I don't think you could switch the x axis separately.
