On the Battlefield 3 @ 30 fps on console: Tempest. Teapot.
BFBC2 was 30fps @ 720p on consoles. It plays great on console. Why is this an issue that they have a better looking more complex game running at the same? Sounds like an achievement to me.
Yes, CoD games run at 60fps, but they don't look as good and actually run sub HD resolutions on consoles and use the built in scalers to output at higher resolutions. CoD is also a faster game than BF3 will be. More arcade-y. So it really does help the feel. But the games are different and what is good for one isn't necessarily the right thing for the other when you consider the trade offs.
I'll be buying BF3 to play both on 360 and PC, just like I did BFBC2. Don't even see why this topic was a big deal around the gaming sphere this week.
