Because EA started by showing high-end PC footage of Battlefield 3 , the knee-jerk reactions began.
But DICE would like to remind everyone that in fact, the upcoming shooter will indeed be released on consoles and no, those versions won't suck.
Battlefield 3 executive producer Patrick Bach said they're starting to show "more and more console" because they want to prove that BF3 is pretty damn impressive, regardless of platform. Said Bach:
"We want to show off the console version, and people shouldn’t be too worried about it. We are shipping it on console."
Obviously, if you'd like a little extra detail, you can always boost your PC or build/buy a new one, but DICE maintains that console owners won't be disappointed. Bach also added that the beta test for BF3 should be coming "soon," so maybe we'll get a chance to see how the PS3 version of the game looks.
In all honesty, we're not really concerned.
