Battlefield 3


 

THE BUZZ: Patrick Liu, Producer at DICE, has assured console players that they won’t be getting less of a game than their PC counter-parts.

When asked by Edge if fewer online players and smaller maps meant that the console version will offer less of an experience he replied, “They’re definitely not getting less of a game.”

“It has the same amount of destruction and the same amount of visual fidelity. It’a also a misconception I’ve seen on the internet that the console version won’t have jets – that’s not true.” he said in their latest issue. “We’ve scaled the maps accordingly for console so it makes the pacing all right and the balancing is good. If you play a big Conquest map then the map is balanced accordingly.”

EGM’s TAKE: A lot of console fans are feeling hard done to by the choices DICE has made, however they are being forced into them not by the designers but by the constraints of home consoles in comparison to PCs.
