These days, multiplatform games tend to be dominated by console gamers. Modern Warfare 2, for example, has a relatively tiny PC-playing community. Not so for Battlefield Bad Company 2!
DICE associate producer Barrie Tingle has revealed that at the moment, during the week of the game’s retail release, more people are playing the PC version of the game than
both the 360 and PS3 editions combined either console version.
UPDATE: Tingle has since corrected our misinterpretation of his comments. He updated his post with “Noticed on Kotaku that this post was taken the wrong way. The PC had more players than either console not more than both consoles combined. You’ll need to work to beat both consoles combined effort.”
Sure, Battlefield is a franchise with its spiritual home on the PC, but still. It’s nice to see not everybody has abandoned the ol’ mouse and keyboard in favour of the couch and a Dualshock 3.
Updates to the servers now and soon [EA, thanks Ryan!]
