Patrick Bach, executive producer on Battlefield 4, has responded to criticism about the difference in quality between different versions of seen in trailers.
“It gives me a flashback to Battlefield 3. We had that problem even back before the next-gen consoles, where we made a game that looked amazing on the PC – the better the PC, the better that game looked – and then you had a game that looked amazing on PS3 and Xbox 360, but it didn’t look as good as on PC, and people kept nagging us about that.
“It was like, you should compare it to other games on the same platform. And people said, ‘OK but still – why doesn’t it look as good as on PC? You don’t care about the consoles.’ Well, we’re pushing your hardware as hard as we can, and I’m quite certain that we’ll get that this summer as well – because we are pushing the PC, we’re pushing the Xbox One and we’re pushing the PS4, and also making sure that the Xbox 360 and PS3 software looks amazing, way better than it did for Battlefield 3.”
