Gamers should not be worried about the quality of the Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 3, DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson has told VideoGamer.com following leaked footage of the game hitting YouTube.
"The problem is we don't want people to experience the game through a crappy YouTube video with a 320x200 resolution, or something like that," Troedsson told VideoGamer.com. "We want people to see this game in the great HD way that we want people to see it, of course."
Addressing those who have already seen the footage, Troedsson added: "I would ask them a question, and that is, 'How can you even make that judgement by looking at the quality of those videos?' - which I've seen, by the way.
"I'd follow that up by saying that they don't have to worry. The game is going to look really, really good on 360 as well, and we want to show them that now and up until launch."
Troedsson also responded to concerns about the lack of Xbox 360 footage for the game thus far.
"I mean, we have to select which platforms we're going to show it on, and there might be a lot of reasons behind it, but I don't think people should worry about the 360," he explained. "We do have the beta coming out very shortly now, we haven't got the final date but it will be coming out in September, then people can play it themselves on 360 and hopefully can see that it looks and plays really well on 360."
Good news for Xbox 360 gamers then, but we'll hold out until we see the Xbox 360 version before getting too carried away.
Battlefield 3 will be released October 28 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
