The game looks decent on the PlayStation 3. But in a recent interview with EDGE magazine, producer Patrick Liu insisted that console owners are not drawing the short straw, with Battlefield 3 every inch comparable to its PC counter-part on PS3.
"[Console owners are] definitely not getting less of a game," Liu said. "It has the same amount of destruction and the same amount of visual fidelity."
The console versions of Battlefield 3 support less players online, and subsequently include smaller maps. Liu explained that this is all designed to improve gameplay balance.
"We've scaled the maps accordingly for console so it makes the pacing all right and the balancing is good," Liu added. "If you play a big Conquest map then the map is balanced accordingly."
