Battlefield 3: PC Graphics better than Xbox 360, PS3 – Does it Matter

We have some major news for those of you planning to pick up Battlefield 3 in November this year, as EA DICE has seemingly confirmed that the PC version of the game will take full advantage of the Frostbite 2.0 engine, resulting in higher quality graphics than the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

The comments have come from EA DICE executive producer Patrick Bach, when he was speaking in a recent interview with VideoGamer. Below are the key parts of his statement about the PC version.

”What we’re showing on PC might look better than on console. The higher resolution, the higher framerate, the anti-aliasing, the motion blur, stuff like that. We can’t have it to the same quality on the console.”

However, Bach was keen to point out that the console versions of Battlefield 3 will still be of the highest quality, even going as far to say that it will ‘probably’ be the best looking game out on console period. As an Xbox 360 or PS3 owner reading his comments though, what are your thoughts? Will you still pick up a console version of the game, or will you now get it on PC to get the best graphics possible.

We all saw EA’s mind blowing gameplay trailers for Battlefield 3, and if the console versions look significantly worse, it might persuade a few owners to get the PC version instead. Hopefully we see some console gameplay soon so we can get a better idea of what EA DICE are planning.
