Dice: ‘Console Gamers Shouldn’t Worry’ About Battlefield 3 Frame Rate

Battlefield 3 running at 30FPS on consoles has been much discussed and some fans have been very unhappy that it is not running at 60 FPS like some other console games.

Dice Vice President and General Manager, Karl Magnus Troedsson has said that the team are not prepared to make the compromises that would be required to hit 60FPS.

“Console gamers shouldn’t worry about this, this topic is discussed out of proportions,” Troedsson told GamingExaminer in an interview. “For those tech-savvy enough to have looked into the actual resolution of their console games it won’t come as a surprise that a lot of console games today do not run at 1080p but rather 720p. We’ve done this for our last games and we believe it can still look amazing. “

“When people ask for 1080p they don’t see the compromises that would be needed to get there. As for the frame-rate we’ve made a conscious decision to stick with 30 FPS on console. It’s not a technical problem with getting our game to run in 60 FPS but we do this in favour of the large amount of players, large scale maps, huge amount of vehicles, full-on destruction and so on.”

“The pace in Battlefield is slightly slower than some other twitchy shooters of today which lends itself well to this frame-rate,”
