BF3 will be dubbed down for consoles

Written by David Stellmack

DICE claims it will still be amazing
DICE is now conceding what we think PC Battlefield fans had already known:  the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Battlefield 3 will be “scaled down” versions of the PC version. DICE claims that they will still be amazing, but the PC version will provide the ultimate Battlefield 3 experience.

The PC version of Battlefield 3 will also include a lot of very specific and unique features that will only be available in this version of the game. DICE isn’t yet talking about what these special and unique features for the PC version might be, but DICE is promising news at a later date.

Speaking of dates, that is one thing DICE is still not talking about. We continue to hear that it will arrive this fall, but the most recent whispers we hear indicate that while an October release is what EA and DICE might like, it seems more realistic that it will arrive closer to Thanksgiving or early December, according to our sources. It is expected that an actual target release date will be announced in June at E3.

Much better than the other way around, which is standard practice in the industry.

Finally... FINALLY!!! Someone's gonna dub down a console version of the PC game not a PC version of the console game.

Sounds good if its true but after Crytecs bs talk I am not surprised if the pc features are mouse and keyboard support...let hope for the best though.

Oh my! The atrocity! Dubbed down for consoles? Would that be because they have lower computing power than PCs and have been holding back advancement for a few years now? Well deserved - for both camps, i say.

I became a PC Gamer after abandoning the 360 and consoles about 3-4 years ago. And never thought that a company would be saying that the console sku would be dumbed down. It is about time!

Finally, a company with brains. If you want the best possible graphics and sound, PC gaming is the only answer. The only thing I like about console gaming is the convenience, that's it.

Whats funny is that many PC gamers will "dumb down" the PC version of the game themselves, as their PCs won't be able to handle it "The Way It Was Meant To Be Played"! :lol: Also they'll steal this game rather than buy it proving once again where DICE's core audience really is, on the console!
