No Console in PC Bad Company 2

A thread on the Electronic Arts UK Community Forums has reaction to news that there will be no console access in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, DICE's upcoming military shooter sequel (thanks Joao). This was learned via a Tweet by DICE's Johan Andersson that said simply: "No console." Johan checks in at the end of the thread with a follow up explaining that this is to prevent hacking, and that the first Bad Company had no console either, but of course that was not released for the PC:

We have not removed a console from BC2. The simple reason is that BC1 and BC2 never have had an in-game console. Which also means that the game won't be possible to hack in this regard.

Well BF2 has about 50,000 more users that MW2 and has been around for 5 years or so? Still, the bottom line, the hacking is insane and can really ruin an otherwise stellar gaming experience.

I don't go from server to server counting the number of hackers I see, so I'm not sure how the number of users would change the number of cheaters that I encounter while playing.

I've played it (strictly pubbing) since launch, and the cheating is rarely an issue. The only times I've seen it are in servers with nary an admin in sight, and then it's either someone inside map elements, or someone dropping a bajillion jeeps and crashing the server (which was fixed in 1.5, wasn't it?). I've never had my experience ruined by either.

Maybe it's just not a problem in the types of servers I frequent, or maybe the cheaters are terrible at the game, but it's rare enough that it's never struck me as an issue. I tend to come across at least one person cheating every night that I play COD:MW2 on the PC, though.
