How is it a gen ahead of consoles when it's coming to consoles? I mean graphically, sure, we all know PC is ahead, but the gameplay is gonna be the same.

Gameplay doesn't have to be ahead for games to be "next-gen". The overall gameplay quality of the current gen is the best proof of that.

Unfortunately you're wrong!

Field of view, resolution and frames per second all have a massive impact on the playability of any game. It's not just pretty lighting and nice water effects that PC is better at. The console version will be cut back (dumbed down if you want but I don't always agree with that term) from the version on the PC. It's the same story with any multi-plat game where the developer puts a bit of effort into the PC version.

The only way we'll really see that the PC is a generation ahead is if Valve, along with other PC-loving game developers were to make a joint effort to bribe Platinum Games to make a PC exclusive title.

Because the picture quality on Youtube is no-where near as good as a direct download, and YT has a 30 FPS framerate cap (I don't know what framerate this video is though since I'm still downloading it).

I must be the only person in the world who thought BF3 really solidified the "PC is a gen ahead" argument

PC is a gen ahead. It would require a new generation of consoles to play a game like BF3 at High+ settings of PCs currently available. There is no possible way to legitimately argue this logic.
