PC Dragon Age Has Top-Down Camera

Kotaku 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.

GiantBombs video is indeed one of the best shown so far as it goes into quite extensive into character building and a good long look at the combat, which looks absolutely fantastic. If you're mildly interested in the game and a RPG fan, check that video out, you'll be giddy with excitement and putting a DA:O countdown widget on your desktop to be sure.
