Making BF4's Visuals The Same Across All Platforms Would Be "The Coward's Way Out," According To DICE

Battlefield 4 is going to look quite different depending on which piece of gaming hardware you decide to purchase it for. This developmental approach in the past has resulted in complaints from gamers who were unhappy that Battlefield 3 didn't look as nice on console as it did on PC.
DICE has since addressed these complaints in an interview with OXM, telling the outlet that developing for the lowest common denominator just to create an equal experience for everyone would be "the cowards way out."
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.So there you have it. DICE isn't looking to make the same experience for everyone, but rather, the best experience possible for everyone within the confines of the hardware that they are playing on. It's hard to complain or find any fault in that.
