You do realize that a number of graphical effects have not been implemented yet? This includes increased background interactivity, shadowing effects, as well as structural and environmental elements? Your own isolated experiences with latency aside (I, for one, have not had one laggy game yet, incredibly), you're taking a giant leap in assuming there won't be any 'meaningful' visual improvements.
as far as the "bu-bu-bu one is a launch title, one is comin' 2 years later!" that is irrelevant. One is a finished game, one is a beta that is a SNAPSHOT of a single build, that had to be stabilized and tested many months before being released for general consumption. They were playing this last year
. To assume that the game hasn't improved visually since (or that it won't in the months left until it goes gold) is foolish.
This would be akin to comparing Gears of War to Killzone 2 in its current, unattractive, unfinished state. It's simply not a valid comparison yet.
