360 and PS3 Battlefield Heroes unlikely - Microsoft certification process and Xbox LIVE billing system cited as reasons

Videogamer reports that A Xbox 360 version of upcoming free PC shooter Battlefield Heroes is unlikely because of Microsoft's control over Xbox 360 LIVE, according to developer DICE.

Speaking to at an EA Games label event in London today, Ben Cousins, executive producer at DICE Studios, said that he didn't believe there would be any point in porting it to the PS3 or Xbox 360 because "Everyone's who's got a 360 or PS3 also will have a PC that can run this game".

Battlefield Heroes, set for a closed, invitation-only beta on May 6, will be a completely free, 250MB download. The game will make money through the sale of customisation options, like new clothes, and through advertising on its website.

The person that wrote the article just added PS3 because the dev said that everyone who has a PS3 or 360 has a PC that can run this game.
