DICE: PC is Battlefield 3's "Lead Platform"
Speaking to Eurogamer, Troedsson explained that they "we always want to show a platform that we have chosen to be our lead platform. In this case we did choose PC as the lead platform; it's the one that has been, mostly, driving development forward. That is the reason why we have spearheaded a lot of the key assets with this as well, adding that:
It is used to build "unique" features that are really needed in the game- things like 64-player multiplayer, which is "not possible" on console when combined with aspects "like destruction, like scale, vehicles and this kind of thing"."people don't understand that the PC is more powerful than a console!"
However, not to worry, DICE will also be showing the game on console, "and when the beta goes live people will be able to play it on console and they can make up their minds for themselves if they believe we've been hiding something."
