DICE Favoring Xbox on Consoles After Cursing Out PS3 Fans

Forums - Gaming Discussion - DICE Favoring Xbox on Consoles After Cursing Out PS3 Fans

“Despite all of us being told the other day that those of us who pursued a better gaming experience on our console of choice are “Bullsh*t” (quote from DICE) when it was the Sony PlayStation 3 being discussed DICE’s actions have revealed that they will favor a console, just not Sony’s. Ironically in a twist of events DICE has just revealed that although they publicly denied any potential benefit existed to learning the architecture of the PS3, they have created an “awesome” “special lighting effect” for the Microsoft Xbox 360 version of the console Battlefield 3 game.

First Person Shooter developer DICE rep Andersson “we have a special lighting solution on Xbox 360 as well that we haven’t talked about yet” was sent as a response to fan-asked questions about the game. Even though just days ago the developer completely shot down console owners on Sony’s more powerful gaming hardware hoping to see an edge on the console version of the game, perhaps a higher player limit online or graphical enhancements, it appears now that DICE is actually favoring the least powerful hardware the game will be released on instead. Regardless of your gaming beliefs or development philosophy this is the perfect recipe for a PR disaster. Is this a publicity stunt or does DICE honestly think that gamers on PS3 asking for enhancements should be verbally abused while Xbox 360 owners get the only console enhancements. Either way, keep it classy DICE, or not…”

Good for xbox owners



The thing that most sony fanboys cannot or will not accept is there are alot of things that the xbox is actually better equipped to do than the PS3. The PS3 has more processing power, but xbox has a better GPU. In a lot of ways the xbox is better equipped to handle things like lighting. 

Dice isn't favoring one console over another, they simply found something they can optimize better on the 360. PS3 will surely have its own advantages. 

The way they were marketing solely to PS3 always seemed really stupid to me. You're releasing an FPS on the market, why would you completely ignore the 360 audience? Thats just bad business.

DICE didn't curse out PS3 fans. Some people criticized the graphics, and he said "BS." This makes it seem as if he hates PS3 users.

Also, the author of this is clearly a huge PS3 fanboy. As someone else said below, the PS3 has more processing power, the Xbox has a better GPU. There is a laundry list of things you can make pretty easier, with a superior GPU vs a superior processor.

lol tell them DICE :D haha... I might actually buy the game new now lol



I'm pretty sure anyone who gets it on the 360 will be happy with the special lighting they get.

On the other hand, I'm pretty sure the people who buy Battlefield 3 on PS3 will get really annoyed with the huge problematic lack of special lighting, and will load up the free version of Batlefield 1943.



misleading article and title...don't worry they gonna get the most out of each console...would be stupid from DICE to announce exclusive content for the PS3 on E3 but then saying they're favor the 360...don't believe this






 

yet another troll article from the "media"...eh...



"Tell me why does it have to be so hard

to let go when it?s your final day

...When death is on it's way"

If BF3 is in the same league of quality as BC2 on PS3 (or better), then it's guaranteed that I'll love it. I don't give a shit if the 360 version have better "lightning effects". I'm sure DICE will do a good job on both consoles.
