DICE on BF3 PC/Console Differences

A post on German site GameZone follows up with DICE CEO Patrick Bach on differences between Battlefield 3 multiplayer play on PCs versus consoles (thanks Computer and Video Games). Taking umbrage at the implication that support for fewer players on the console editions of their military shooter sequel is the result of evil or cruel intentions, he explains the obvious, which is that this is due to console shortcomings. Here is a bit, courtesy of Google Translate:

"It's not that we are evil or stupid, we did not choose not to have more players -. we would make love to 64 players on the console, but then we would have to cut away so much. Otherwise the players would get upset that the console version looks much worse and worse playing. Moreover, one would need to remove the vehicles. The cards will also turn out a little more compactly: If we say that they are smaller does not mean that we have halved it."

It would probably take about $500 to create a far superior PC. MaximumPC just had an article where they built a nice gaming rig for $667 I think, and that was from scratch.
