"The biggest difference between the PC and console version of Battlefield 3 is that we have 64 players on the PC and 24 players maximum on console," said studio boss Patrick Bach. "The rest is more or less the same: we use the same engine, the same technology, the same animation system, the same lighting system. Our aim is to give the player the exact same experience and not try to dumb down the console version.

"If you want the same quality of game, I would say it's really, really hard. We tried to get more players in but then you need to scale down all the graphics, scale down all the destructibility, and sometimes you need to scale down all the map sizes. Everything is a compromise on: where do you cut?"

He added that players would be "very upset that it looked worse, played worse and wasn't as fun as the PC version," hence why certain areas had to be scaled down for the good of the game. Sounds fair enough to me. I mean, were people really expecting PC-quality visuals and 64 players on an Xbox 360?

Do you think my Apple iMac 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 would run the game well through Parallels Desktop? My PC hasn't been updated since I updated for CS: Source lul...

COD fucking sucks and takes no skill. That's the difference.

You seem upset.
August 03, 2011 @ 02:19:05
oh look, it's that guy again.
it only sucks if you suck, its an addiction if you're a beast

for a real answer,

battlefield has more large-scale, half infantry half vehicle based gameplay.
CoD has a more intimate, solo, in-your-face-and-knife-you environment

close quarters combat in battlefield sucks compared to cod,
and as for the long range, wide-scale, blow shit up stuff, battlefield is better.

pick your poison


truth

I want to see the world burn

Argument? lulz. Soo butthurt by a common shared thought throughout the BF community. But iight.

Hopefully they give out keys for beta. I want to see if Nvidia still crashes.

I agree, COD does suck.

MW2 and BO are ass.

The last good COD was WaW... I'm going to get a lot of heat for this but WaW is by far the best COD game ever made. The people that hated WaW were the nikkas that were used to using p90s running around with juggernaut. The only flaw that WaW had was the heavy use of modded controllers. WaW took skill. Anyone disagree, get on WaW, 1 on 1 smokeyface

IMO, COD4 was the best. Never played WaW though.

Yes, it will be open for everyone, but those who preorder off of origin or own a copy of MOH limited edition are granted early access.
