DICE claims that the Frostbite 2 engine will deliver more advanced destruction, sound, and graphics than previous versions.  Are you Excited about it?

However, gamers are urged to be cautious as neither DICE, the game’s developer, nor EA, the game’s publisher, have confirmed the specifications. EA also confirmed that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version of the game would only run at 30fps (Frames per Second) while the PC version would run at a cool 60fps. The reason, according to EA, was that the Frostbite 2 engine had so much going on in terms of rendering that consoles would not be able to provide a smooth 60fps output.

EA also conceded that the PlayStation 3 version of the game would perform better than the Xbox 360 version. Again gamers are reminded that this does not mean that console gamers are getting an inferior version; it means that they are getting a version optimized for their systems.

Battlefield 3 is due out on the 28th of October on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
