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.

Glad I skipped it.


Your loss. Well that is if you enjoy competitive multiplayer FPS's.

I agree with the few here that say we still donít have the large scale BF2 type maps. While operation firestorm is quite large, when youíre in an attack chopper it's like you fly over a lil' mountain and then boom, the whole map is right there. I donít like how when flying you can pretty much get shot from any control point. I miss maps like Fushe Pass in Bf2 where you would have mini battles over a control point and you didnít really have to worry so much about a tank machine gunning you from another control point as you were too far away to be hit. This was not always the case, but now you can be hovering over point A, and a guy with a shoulder mounted rocket at point D can still lock on and shoot ya down.

While it's hard to complain about map sizes compared to other FPS's, I hope the back to Karkand expansion and future map releases will bring back a little of that BF2 flavor. Maps like operation metro and serine crossing do not feel like battlefield maps. I guess those are for the console crowds, but I prefer having more than just 2 ways to go. Bottlenecks should not be in a BF map, leave that for the COD players who enjoy battling inside a matchbox.

Overall the game is a blast and best thing currently out there for my taste. Now, if they would just move that oversized POS chat window out the way I think everyone would enjoy that. Is there a console command to disable it? Seriously; It's is so annoying I'd rather not have in game chat then have that.
