Battlefield 4′s Patrick Bach on platform scalability and PC optimisation

Stevivor.com -- "People might be divided when it comes to Battlefield 4’s emotional core, but one thing is absolutely certain – the game looked amazingly gorgeous. Joking that my wallet hurt at the mere thought of the PC specs required to run the Battlefield 4 GDC demonstration, DICE’s Patrick Bach laughed." (Battlefield 4, Dev, Dice, Patrick Bach, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

PC optimization is good to hear

DICE definitely does the best job of scaling games. Most developers just cater to the lowest common denominator and don't bother to scale anything up outside basic fidelity settings. But there's only so far you can go before 360/PS3 are holding back the core design of the game. The sooner PS4/Xbox3 are the baseline for development, the better.

Pat is a genius and he is one of the reasons the frostbite engine is so good

So ''scalable...''
Yet no Wii U support (*smh -_-*).

maybe they just dont want it on the wii U ? ever think of that

That's definitely a talking point, but maybe like 2pacalypse said, it might just not be in their interests. The EA/Nintendo relationship is pretty well covered as it is, and maybe they just don't think the Wii U audience is worth the investment for this game. Its clearly a possibility based on what you just pointed out.

Honestly, who really cares about a Wii U version?

It isn't a next gen system. BF4 is a next gen game.

Deal with it.

It'll be on 360/PS3... WII-U is just as capable as those platforms and in some ways more. I don't see a reasonable excuse as to why it won't be on WII-U... FTR I don't own one.

If they saw a financial incentive for a Wii U version they'd make one.
