360 & PS3 Battlefield 3 only support half PC frame rate

Written by David Stellmack

360 & PS3 versions will both run at 30fps
DICE has confirmed that the console versions of Battlefield 3 will only support a frame rate of 30fps. That is right: both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will both only run at 30 frames per second, while the PC version will run at 60fps.

The 30fps will be delivered on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 at a resolution of 720p. The PC version, however, will run at full 1080p. Actually, a number of the most popular titles run at 720p, so the decision isn’t that surprising.

Of course, since the Frostbite 2 engine that DICE developed for Battlefield 3 is targeted at the next generation of consoles it only stands to reason that the performance will be increased when the engine is moved to the next generation of consoles; and the engine can take advantage of the additional performance that will be offered in the next generation of consoles.

1080p resolution on the PC? Does that mean this game is a console port?

No wonder why the quality of games for PC has gone down, all games are console ports.

Not that surprising, considering the current gen consoles are getting a little old and slouchy and Frostbite 2 is a brand new, demanding game-engine. Can't wait until it's released. Too bad I can't play the beta cause I don't own MoH.

you think this is a console port? you fools. they designed the PC version first, then ported to the consoles.

hmmm, stellmack must be a console dude, 60fps isn't the limit put in place by the PC, that's just the monitors vsync and they can go way beyond 1080p, especially with ATI Eyefinity

The screenshots posted of BF3 gameplay are 1920x1200P, which happen to fit nicely on my 1200P screen for my PC. I have no reason to doubt a modern gaming title can't work with Eyefinity or nVIDIA Surround since BF2 plays nice in those modes. PC games can go above 60FPS if you turn vsync off like others have mentioned or you actually own a nice LCD that goes above or an old school CRT... But is this really news? I'm sure most of us here figured the current consoles wouldn't be playing it maxed out. It still looks pretty good though considering how old the consoles are.

Once again, no source for this story. Careful, David, whoever broke this news may find out you are not crediting them.
