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.

how about the PC version? whats the installed base of DVD versus bluray capable rigs?
I am pretty sure there are still a lot more PCs out there that has DVD drives installed not BluRay. I have not yet seen any PC games shipped on a BluRay, and I honestly doubt I will ever see that happening. I think PC gaming industry will just skip over this whole BluRay craze and go straight digital distribution instead. I am sure that will cause some problems for some users but it will be fine for most.

As for the BF3 beta, what I've heard is the PC beta is ready to go, but they are waiting Microsoft and Sony approval on the console betas before they push it all out at ones.
I really don't see how the stupid console betas effecting the PC version, or why bother waiting for the console betas but that is the decision EA made I guess.
