Battlefield 3 Scales Down Maps for Consoles

CERFY has impressions of Battlefield 3 from the C2E2 show in Chicago. We've seen lots of speculation about map sizes in the game, since the military shooter sequel will support 64 player multiplayer on PCs, but only 24 players on consoles. It was confirmed for them that the console versions of BF3 will actually use scaled-down versions of the maps. It was also explained to them that pilots on the console versions will have a larger airspace for maneuvering than the ground troops. Thanks Ant.

The Xbox sucked in the RAM department though. Consoles always skimp on the RAM, it's ridiculous.

That's because you don't need much RAM when all you're running is a barebones OS and a video game. PCs are doing a billion things behind the scenes while you're gaming, consoles are only doing one thing.

What you said is true, but they are/were still skimpy in the ram dept.
