Uh-oh console lovers, I’ve got some bad news for you. A DICE representative told technology blog CERFY that console versions of Battlefield 3 would have scaled down maps compared to their PC counterparts. As battles on console are limited to only 24 people, this makes considerable sense.
The good news is this won’t affect you too much if you are a pilot in BF3, as air vehicles will have a larger map to fly around in. I know I’ll be playing BF3 on PC, but I can’t imagine console players will be too happy with this news. After all, the Battlefield series has always been about massive battles on large maps. While smaller maps were acceptable in Bad Company, I feel like the true Battlefield experience will only be felt on the PC at this point.
Will you be playing Battlefield 3 on PC or console? Let us know in the comments.
