Battlefield 3 pushes consoles to the limit

Frostbite 2 designed with next consoles in mind
While skeptics have doubted DICE’s ability to deliver a Battlefield 3 experience on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that will be close to the PC version, the studio assures everyone that Battlefield 3 will push the current generation of consoles to the absolute limit.

DICE is confident that Battlefield 3 will be the best looking console game to arrive for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this year, according to executive producer Patrick Bach. DICE will prove this fact instead of just talking about it, according to Bach.

One advantage that the Frostbite 2 engine will have in the future is that the engine was designed with the future in mind from every design aspect. That means that graphics, physics, animation, and audio have all been created with the next generation of consoles in mind. It should be no problem to adapt the Frostbite 2 engine to these next platforms when they are finally released.

Still, the PC version will look the best if you have the hardware and graphics card to run it. Sources suggest that maybe only 5% to 7% of the PC players of Battlefield 3 will have the hardware capable of pushing the PC version to the max when Battlefield arrives this fall.

Pushing consoles ? There is nothing to push, old hardware is old.

That's awesome news. Sounds like a true PC worthy game.

Alan Wake will push quad core cpus.
Crysis 2 won't be a console port.
And BF3 will be a better experience on PC...

Noooo, when will people realize consoles are nothing more than a marketing ploy? They end up costing you more at the end because the games are more expensive! And there are NO REAL upgrade options >.<

Now they have accessories like keyboards, and extra HDD, man at the end you will end up with customization, which the PC has been able to do since...ever!

So much talk about next-gen consoles... One must be coming this year! But which of the three will do it?

Yep, this sounds about right. Despite all of the "the PC" is so powerful talk, most will be dumbing down the game just to get it to run, and will be playing nothing more than the console version at best! :lol:
