Are Consoles Holding PC gaming back?


Patrick Batch the executive producer at EA’s DICE studio gave an interview to GeForce.com.

when asked if consoles are holding PC gaming back, Bach replied “Yes, Absolutely”, and added “That’s the biggest problem we have today”. He went on, saying that most games are made for the lowest common denominator (i.e. consoles), and that console games are generally ported to the PC with some higher resolution textures.

Bach stressed that DICE is expand »doing the opposite with Battlefield 3, the PC version is the lead version and the console versions will be scaled down, as opposed to console version being scaled up to the PC.

Batch went to say that despite favouring the PC platform, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions will look just as good as anything on the console market today. Bach also commented on whether the Frostbite 2.0 engine will be licensed out to other developers, which he denied with a firm “NO”.
