DICE: PC is Battlefield 3 "Lead Platform"

Eurogamer has quotes from DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson on leaked Battlefield 3 footage they quashed, saying: "Watching the game in crappy 320x200 resolution on YouTube is not the way that we want people to experience the game." He also responds to console players complaints that they've only shown the PC edition so far, explaining the PC is the lead platform for the military shooter sequel:

"I understand you mostly see PC footage. It's all part of what kind of strategy we use for what we want to show and when, and what the lead platform is," explained Troedsson.

"People shouldn't worry. We play the 360 and the PS3 version every day in the office. I don't expect people to be disappointed by this."

"We always want to show a platform that we have chosen to be our lead platform. In this case we did choose PC as the lead platform; it's the one that has been, mostly, driving development forward. That is the reason why we have spearheaded a lot of the key assets with this as well.

Everyone whining about a server-based browser will most probably be doing other fun things whilst you are playing BF3 rather than continually whining. But if thinking this makes you feel better about how much you are screwing yourself over by failing to be an assertive consumer then by all means go right ahead.

I don't mind the idea of a browser based server browser personally, it's not the end of the world or something. I agree with the concerns about giving EA that kind of access to my system however. Most of my RL friends have little to no awareness of the BF franchise so I doubt they will even know or care about Origin so I won't miss much by skipping this. Hell most of them don't even really know what Steam itself is despite running it.

I'm a bit weary of this type of quote. It's nice that they gave the PC version extra game functionality, I think we're all pretty happy about that. I'm not feeling very joyous towards the publishers contribution here, EA seems to be focused on leveraging this title instead of the end user experience which is troublesome. A lot of the features that support gameplay are significantly changed and I can't say it's design related as opposed to business which is where my problem with BF3 lies.

I don't know, we'll see after beta I guess. I'm still very much on the fence about this. Love the game itself but EA seems to be doing their damndest to push people elsewhere.
