DICE admits that they changed PC focus

Forced to focus on consoles to finish game

DICE has admitted that as they started focusing on the PC version of Battlefield 3 and as they got closer to release, the studio was forced to drop the PC as the lead platform focus, and instead focus on the console versions of the game to get the game out the door.

The switch to the consoles as the main platform focus was required in order to meet the release date. However, GM Karl-Magnus Troedsson claims that their ambition was to get the absolute most out of each platform for the game. The studio is pleased with the end result.

Where is this from? Link please, references, was this an interview? Was this a post?

"The studio is pleased with the end result."

Well they were the only ones. The game rocks, but it just has too many problems, as seen in the community forums.

What will they continue to update? Only bug fixes, or will they truly fix the remaining big issues? Like squads, VOIP and the rest?

You mean the butt hurt CoD fanboys that gave the game 0 and 1 ratings? Or the classic whining about BF3 not being available on Steam, or that Origin is spyware? Here's some actual homework...

Metacritic - Battlefield 3 PC:
Positive: 429 out of 646 ratings
Mixed: 42 out of 646 ratings
Negative: 175 out of 646 ratings

Gamerankings.com - Battlefield 3 PC:
88.10% based on 21 reviews

Nuff said.

Valve? Really? I don't think so. If gaming were left to Gordon Freeman and the Portal guys, we'd all be f*cked. Where is HL3 btw... :|

You think Valve is going to release HL3 before they release episode 3? :-*

No idiot, all 3 platforms gave it the same rating. meaning no 1 got a better rating than the other.
