"Console gamers shouldn't worry" about Battlefield 3 frame rate - DICE

Battlefield 3's 30 frames per second performance on console is "discussed out of proportion", reckons Karl Magnus Troedsson. According to the DICE vice president and general manager, console owners don't appreciate the "compromises" that would be required to achieve the coveted 60 fps benchmark.

Exactly there is no need to be dissapointed over this stuff. just enjoy the game. Current consoles specially the PS3 is very powerful, its just that sony doesnt want to unlock the machines full potential yet, i mean how else would we see progression in graphics? and i am quite happy with this i would like to see the best of what current consoles can do near the end of the gen.

@powerofcell

So basically from what you are saying, you dont want developers to be able to take advantage of the PS3's full power day one? and would rather wait 10 years for that to happen.

Sorry but that would be kinda retarded, why would you not want hardware that you paid for to not be taken advantage of from day one?

KwietStorm2337d ago

So you just go along with whatever they tell you, basically.

Lol at people disagreeing, quotated right from the man himself:

"We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?" explained Hirai.

Personally i agree there would be no progress if the best looking games rolled out so soon. PC gamers are just rushing it too much. give the devs a break.... goes of to playing COD.

"It's hard to program for, and a lot of people see the negatives of it, but if you flip that around, it means the hardware has a lot more to offer," Hirai stated in February 2009 to the Official PlayStation Magazine. "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that [developers] want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?" - Kaz Hirai

@ powerofcell

Here's a thought....Maybe, If these companies werent so distracted by a graphics whore war, they could go back to making solid well developed games that dont need patches week one.

Show me a man who knows his limits and I'll show you efficiency and accuracy :P

720p 30fps on PS3 doesn't bother me at all. Battlefield is Battlefield. I'm happy with how the game looks. :)

Ranshak2337d ago

Glad to be a PC gamer, no compromises on AAA releases.

SixZeroFour2337d ago

unless you dont have a pc with the specs to play it...then you would have to compromise right?

Ranshak2337d ago

Any 3-4 year old PC will play it better then a console and if you are unhappy with the way the game performs you do have the OPTION to upgrade. Not like you have that option on console.

"if you are unhappy with the way the game performs you do have the OPTION to upgrade."

And pay more....

spektical2337d ago

@ranshak
please direct me to the components of that 3year old pc rig that can play bf3 better than consoles, no more than $300.

Ranshak2336d ago

@moty

looks like you forgot to read the starting of my quote and rather decided to quote whatever serves your purpose. Learn 2 read imo, 3-4 year old PC will perform better then console. Now if you arent satisfied with that level of perofrmance you wont be happy with Console either. However PC does give you the choice to upgrade if you do have the finance. I hope thats not too hard to digest.

@spektical

Its not about the hardware mate. Sony and MS can sell you hardware at losses then later come back to rip you off on the software. Hardware is useless without the software(vice versa), however the catch is you need to buy hardware once, While software will be bought numerous amounts of times.

PC games are so cheap you could literally make a highend PC with the price difference you pay on games alone in a few years time. Hence console gaming being cheap is a myth. In fact its the other way around.

DoomeDx2337d ago (Edited 2337d ago )

The truth is, they have no reason to make a console trailer.
Why would they show a 'lower quality' version to impress gamers, if they can use the high quality version which will impress more people..

Its only the hardcore gamers that complain about lack of console footage.

evrfighter2337d ago

and the hardcore are the minority on consoles. Extreme minority.

Consoles are ruled by casuals that don't even know what fps is.
