[CG]Dice Says PC Gaming Isn’t Dead, Battlefield 3 Will Fix The FPS Experience

PC gamers—those who aren’t destroying the universe, at least—have at least one genuine PC game to look forward to this year, and that’s Battlefield 3. All of us here are pretty excited about, and we’re generally tough graders. Anyhow, Dice revealed the game at GDC this week, and they’ve rushed to the defense of PC gamers, saying that the “death of PC gaming†is *censored* Can’t get much more clear than that.
When I saw Battlefield 3 about two weeks ago (EA was in New York for some event), the producer on hand stressed that the game was absolutely built from the ground up for the PC. The game’s engine, Frostbite 3, will take advantage of the raw power flowing through recent Nvidia and AMD GPUs.
It’s not going to be a shoddy port, filled with the low-res textures commonly found in the transition from console to PC. (Have you seen Dragon Age 2 on a PC? Oh, dear…) It’s not going to be like Bullestorm where you can’t so much as edit the .ini files without having to pray to the sun god.

Even though I know it's just marketing I can't help but love Dice.

I have pretty high hopes with DICE and Battlefield 3 game. I think it will be a kickass game, one of those that last many years and become a golden standard in fps games.

If they pull this off, i feel like BF3 could be one of the biggest PC releases in history.

In my book Blizzard and Valve. IW fails and COD4 may be a good game but its more popular in consoles.

I'm pretty sure id is a "PC first" type of company as far as making the games are concerned. Correct me if I happen to be wrong.
