@XG247: When we managed to catch a word with DICE Executive Producer Patrick Bach about Battlefield 3 we asked him what they'd learnt while making the game and he had a very interesting answer for us.
Except that the PC version is better...that's it..
Haha, he seems to think differently.
It just goes to show that these guys will say anything, including lie to your face about facts that are so not true lol
while i fully agree with not all pcs are able to match a consoles graphics prowess everytime. the pc most likely needs to have the latest graphics card n others to really show a drastic difference so while a pc is considered better not all pc owners rig can max the game.
He's talking about the experience and demands gamers (console and PC gamers alike)want from the game. He never said anything about hardware or software differences between the platforms. I'm not defending him, though. He's just baiting for something.
I'll point you to sells numbers sir!
Thanks for the laugh, Patrick.
There is also no difference between a corn dog and steak or 200 thread count sheets and 1000 thread count sheets!
Except that you made the game infinitely times better on PC.....intentionally
Would you people actually read the damn thing? He's not talking about technical specifications and hardware limitations.
reading? N4G? ahahahaha
Yeah on N4G... all that we do is NAG about precarious things!
All i have to say is.... Thank you.
Nevermind. Awesome game.
He was only comparing the wants and needs of console and PC players.. He was not comparing the quality of the games
Arrogant PC gamers prove they can't read past the headlines....since anything on consoles auto sucks to them.....lol
That is contrary to what I have previously heard.
The headline of this article is extremely misleading and contains absolutely no context. If you read the full quote you will see that he is talking about the players/audience. He is saying that when they make a game targeted at the "hardcore" gaming audience, it is the same whether it is on PC or console.
My friend bought it for PS3 today and is trading it in already, he even thinks the graphics are worse than BFBC2 because they're blurry and not as sharp. He's logged in over 200 hrs in BFBC2 and doesn't even like BF3. This game is meant for PC.
Wow, really, did he take into account the piss poor pop in that Frostbite 1 engine has? or the poor map design? or the lack of progression past lvl 25? I have 11 people playing BBC2 on my friends list, I've asked most how they like it and ALL including me say its way better than BBC2, and the lighting ALONE makes BBC2 look years old.
He says BFBC2 is a lot sharper despite all the additional details in BF3. Whatever to each there own, maybe he just played too much BFBC2 and is sick of military FPS games. He got sick of COD too.
Not until next gen 720 and PS4 when we reach a graphical ceiling will they be equal. Once you get to photo realism you really can't get any higher. PC vs Xbox vs Playstation wont matter anymore, it will be all about the games and services. Even though I play mostly on a 360, you really can't top PC gaming right now.
sales pitch 101
It seems that only console players are concerned about the game, I've yet to hear a complaint from the PC crowd. Me, I'm fine with bf3 on Xbox.
Wow Pc gamers are definitely the worst fan boys of all time.
no...i'd leave that title to mainstream gamers. ugh. You know, the ones who actually learn about a game from a "store" hahahahaha
