DICE is paying homage to PC gamers with extra goodies in Bad Company 2. Sometimes PC gamers don't feel loved, especially when once-dedicated-PC-developers give all the attention and glory to consoles (you know who you are). But PC gamers are loved, it's just not vocalized on a daily level. That's why it's always music to our ears when a developer steps out and sticks up for the PC gamer.
With that said, Battlefield developer DICE thinks that PC gamers deserve extra features because they put up with more "crap" than the spoiled console gamers. According to Maximum PC, DICE community manager “Zerk16” was asked why many Battlefield: Bad Company 2 features are "dodging consoles' draft and defecting to the PC." The reason is surprising.
“The PC platform is usually expected to put up with a lot more ‘crap’ compared to consoles," he replied. "While consoles may get the game on a certain date, PC users typically have to wait much longer for the same game, but in turn, they get the game for a lower price because there are no licensing fees like consoles have, and typically they get a few more perks thrown in compared to consoles just for good measure."
He also added that the PC version of Bad Company 2 is getting more features because DICE has ignored the PC user base for the past 3 to 4 years; the upcoming PC version pays homage to those gamers. "It’s a lot of things that PC users simply deserve," he said. "If you have played games on the PC for the last ten years you would know what I’m talking about, otherwise I won’t even try to explain.”
