Consoles Became "Lead Platform" Late in BF3 Development

The console versions of Battlefield 3 became the lead platform late in development of DICE's military shooter sequel, reports Computer and Video Games by way of the latest issue of PSM3. Earlier this year DICE's Karl-Magnus Troedsson said the PC was the "main" platform for the game, but he now explains that this changed late in the process due to time constraints:

"We said originally that the PC was the lead SKU of the game, but in mid-production we switched to console as lead platform to make sure we could get all the versions done for release," Troedsson confirmed.

"Our ambition at DICE is to use the power of each individual platform to get the most out of the game," he added.

i really hope the first 2 comments are highly sarcastic. the game is stellar and other studios would do well to follow suite. crisp textures, proper options, insanely good looking, plays like a dream - what do you people want? ffs its almost perfect.

Almost perfect is a major overstatement of what you're getting out of the box from a DICE game.

Every DICE game has been horribly flawed and a headache on release day and for a while afterwards, and BF3 is no different.

Between trying to use Battlelog and join games with friends (which doesn't work more often than not), to the awful squad join system which has recently been attempted to fix (still doesn't work all the time). To the incredibly laggy servers (possibly not DICE's fault, but still pretty shitty), to the multiple server crashes, crash to desktops and outright failure of the game to launch due to it crashing (BC2 STILL suffers from CTD by the way) this game is incredibly flawed currently.


That's not to say that once you get in the game it's not a very good experience, because it is generally.

Some of the maps are very unbalanced though. Operation Metro for instance in Conquest mode. The team spawning near the A flag (which is the high ground) has a huge advantage over the team spawning at the C flag. A flag people run and capture A and B and they can focus on sitting at B and keeping the other team at bay. People at flag C can't flank around and get A because there are only 2 or 3 spots that need to be watched and are easily defended due to them being easy to hold choke points.


DICE needs to unlock the Back to Karkand pack already.
