DICE: Console players 'aren't getting less Battlefield 3'

Point is, it isnt fair to straight up say $250 for a console vs. $800 for a PC.

it isn't fair when people fail to include the actual gaming part of PC gaming.

i mentioned in another BF3 topic how i wouldn't trade the ability to get $1500 worth of games for $250 in exchange for the ability to resell my games.

this is on top of the countless amount of F2P games there already are out there.

lol obviously now Dice wouldn't want to say to its biggest market "you're getting a lesser version of the game". When it clearly is in its sense of scale.

PC was actually Bad Company 2's biggest market.

Decent gaming PC is $600-$800 if you build it yourself (assuming no prior equipment like a monitor). A console is like $250.

"Assuming no prior equipment like a television", I'm assuming? You can use an hdtv as a monitor.

There just is no reason to get the PS3 version if you have a gaming PC. And the whole "I want to play on a couch" does not work anymore since it is easy to integrate a PC into your living entertainment system if you really want to.

Well, while consoles may not be getting the full 64 people experience, at least thats the only thing changed.
I don't just give you my two cents, I whip a roll of quarters at your head.
