EA has admitted that the PS3 version of Battlefield 3 runs at only 720p.
Electronic Arts and DICE has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 version of Battlefield 3 will run at 720p and will be capped at 30 frames per second.
The confirmation followed on from a demo of the PS3 code on US talk show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, when DICE's Johan Andersson fielded viewer questions over Twitter
'We think huge levels, lots of players, great effects, destruction, vehicles & varied gameplay are more important than 1080p,
' said Andersson.
'How is that a shame? Name a single FPS game that runs at 1080p on any of the consoles? [We] would have to do huge gameplay cuts.
'Modern Warfare 2 runs at 1024x600 on PS3 with 2x MSAA. And I didn't do any digs at COD, just explained our trade-offs.
It's been pointed out, of course, that the Call of Duty games all run at 60 FPS - including the upcoming Modern Warfare 3.
