Battlefield 3 Is 720p On Consoles, Dice Says Duh, “Just Like 99 Percent Of All Games”

DICE and its Battlefield 3 shooter have been fielding some questions from ‘certain’ gamers as more details concerning the console version of the game come to light. We recently learnt that, unlike what DICE had said, the PC version will look better, obviously. News also surfaced concerning the title’s frame rate, with DICE settling for 30FPS. Now as for output, it’ll be rendered in 720p on consoles and to that DICE says, ‘uh, yeah?’

When asked by a fan on Twitter about the 720p resolution output on consoles, Rendering Architect at DICE Johan Andersson replied: “yes, just as 99% of all games for those platforms.”

He went on to reply to another fan saying: “how is [720p] a shame? name a single FPS game that runs at 1080p on any of the consoles? would have to do huge gameplay cuts.”

Adding: “We think huge levels, lots of players, great fx, destruction, vehicles & varied gameplay is more important than 1080p.”

Battlefield 3 saw its first console debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last Thursday, and ever since tidbits of information concerning the title have been coming to light, information that’s causing quite a stir amongst many gamers. But is it DICE’s fault? The developer once said that the game would look the same across all platforms. So although people may feel the need to rage at gamers who are somewhat disappointed, DICE has a role to play in this.

    not why, how.
    i knew this was going to happen, people take things far too seriously!
    give them a ruler and tell them its 1m when its 1m and 1mm and they will line out the gallows for ya!
    technically speaking though they were right when they said the game look the same across all platforms.
    most people cant tell the difference between 1080P and 720P, and FPS has nothing to do with how it looks, just how well it runs.
    so technically speaking it will look the same, because all the added bits the PC version has allot of people wont notice.
    play a PC game on full settings, then turn them down and see if you can spot the difference.
    alice madness returns has really advanced physX support only on PC, but are you really going to notice it?
    if you finish it on PC, then finish it on consoles are you really going to notice a difference?
    obviously you would if they were side by side, but having a gap in between?
    my lord why are people so anal!?

    Good points Nick. But again…..DICE should have never said it’ll look the same….Also, they’re starting to sound a bit like Crytek.

  • nick

    they made the assumption people knew what they meant, its not there fault people have no common sense!
    they sound nothing like crytek!
    crytek constantly talk themselves up, when has DICE said BF3 will be the best looking console game?
    i remember crytek saying that many times!
    crytek promise the world and deliver maybe .1% of it!
    DICE promise nothing, and deliver everything!

    You can’t just assume that they assumed people would know what they mean….
