PS3 & Xbox 360 Can’t Handle More Players in Battlefield 3

When Battlefield 3 releases this Fall, PC players might be getting a better game as alluded to by DICE.  For starters the PC is lead platform for the game, and with impressive list of features that have been confirmed for PC version of the game, console gamers have been left scratching their heads.  DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 3 will feature 64-player online matches on fully realized maps, while console version of the game on Xbox 360 and PS3 will be getting 24- player matches and smaller maps, and here’s why.
