On PC Battlefield 1943

Message to the PC Gamer(s) Following BF1943's Development on the EA Forums follows-up on the reaction to news that the PC edition of Battlefield 1943 will trail the console versions by a couple of months. The post by DICE's Gordon Van Dyke reassures PC gamers that "this is to give us the proper development time to create a proper PC version of Battlefield 1943 and not a console port. To the contrary of some less informed fans out there this is in no means an intentional ploy to punish our PC fans. And is in fact quite the opposite, we want to make the best damn PC version we can for our PC fans!" He refers to PCs "requiring additional features, support, technical consideration, and can't just be thrown out there using copy/paste." On that topic, Planet Battlefield (thanks Ant) relates a translation of a Swedish interview revealing that DICE is considering dropping some console features for the PC editions, taking a hard look at regenerating health, regenerating ammo, and the 24-player limit for multiplayer games.

MacD, we don't want it two ways, that's the thing. Many here at bluesnews don't care for console ports even if they are given some PC love.

I'll try to summarize the sentiment here..

We PC gamers want a Battlefield game that has development targeted for the PC platform, like BF1942/BF Vietnam/BF2 were. DICE isn't taking PC gamers seriously, still despite these promises. Sure they want to develop the PC version beyond the console editions but still the game itself comes across as a simple console game for 12 year olds.

Many PC gamers use PC's because we don't like the consoles for many reasons, like how the games are simplified and features removed so that they are accessible to the 'masses.'

We find casual and accessible games insulting to our tastes, especially when a studio which made a legendary game like BF1942 to take a 180 degree turn and make games like BF Heroes, 1943 and to a lesser degree, BF:Bad Company. They've given their fans the finger.

What fantasy world do you live in? What's amazing about alot of people on this forum is you guys don't live in reality. This is about business. If Dice (and EA) are going to make a load of money selling of dumbed down version of BF to consoles, what do you expect they will do? Why do you guys get so offended? You are not the premier platform for games (as far as $$ goes). Haven't been for awhile.

The fact that they are dedicating resources to make a 'true PC' version should at least count for something.
