has some impressions of the PS3 edition of Dragon Age: Origins
revealing that only the PC edition has the ability to zoom out for a strategic
top-down view, as this is not present in the console versions. The top-down
view fits with BioWare's statements about this being the "spiritual successor"
to the Baldur's Gate
series, but there's no explanation of why it will
not be part of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions. Update:
As noted in our forums, this was explained by BioWare a while ago as being due to memory constraints on console systems.
