PC Dragon Age Has Top-Down Camera

Kotaku has some impressions of the PS3 edition of Dragon Age: Origins, revealing that only the PC edition has the ability to zoom out for a strategic top-down view, as this is not present in the console versions. The top-down view fits with BioWare's statements about this being the "spiritual successor" to the Baldur's Gate series, but there's no explanation of why it will not be part of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions. Update: As noted in our forums, this was explained by BioWare a while ago as being due to memory constraints on console systems.

I think this was the first thing I checked to see was in when I heard about this game. Tt's good to see that it wasn't sacrificed. It's one of the best, if not the best, features for tactical combat. Even if it wasn't memory related, I could see how a top down view on a tv would be less desirable just based on the distances one generally sits away from a computer monitor vs a tv.
