That’s what DICE executive producer Patrick Bach says. Apparently all the awesome footage that we have seen up until now including the outrageous Faultine series has been ALL PC footage. With that said they just wanted to let us know that it might not look quite as good once we get it on consoles as some of the stuff has looked in the trailers and that is ok by us. Bach went on to say that even with that being the case the Battlefield 3 will still probably look better than almost every other game out there and we can’t say we don’t believe him. He noted that when people see Battlefield 3 running on PS3 and 360 the response will probably be mixed. Bach expects some people to be relieved because they were thinking it wasn’t going to look as good as it really does but he admits that DICE knows that some people will be disappointed that it doesn’t look as good as the PC version.
As far as what the console versions won’t have that the PC version does relates to things like a higher resolution, higher framerates, anti-aliasing, and motion blur. As an IT guy let me just tell you that if you have been a console gamer your whole life then you won’t know what you’re missing. The bottom line is that some things that are possible on a PC just aren’t possible on consoles and that is a fact. In the end though, most console gamers won’t have ever seen any of the stuff I mentioned above so it shouldn’t be an issue.
So there you have it folks, on PC Battlefield 3 should look amazing and on consoles it will only look great. This doesn’t worry us though because as we said, great from DICE is much better than a lot of developers best try. But that’s just us, what do you all think about this? Does it really matter to you?
