Brand manager Kevin O'Leary reckons in the end it's a moot point as "a lot of people" will get Battlefield 3 and 'that' 60 frame rate shooter coming soon as well.
"How do you deliver the best all-out war experience," O'Leary said. "It's 30 frames per a second on console, but we have destruction, vehicles, a new animation system." DICE explained that they sacrificed those extra frames for more effects and mechanics.
"It's not about a number. It's about the full experience." Ultimately gamers will most likely snap up both of the highly anticipated shooters, with the other of course being Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which does run at 60 frames per second.
"People can go for this sort of first-person shooter or that first-person shooter or say 'Do I want both?'" he said. "We expect that a lot of people will go for both." Battlefield 3 is currently running a closed Alpha trail as invitations have been sent and accepted.
Battlefield 3 releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC October 28th. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC November 8th. Will you be getting both?
