Activision CEO casts doubt on console versions of Battlefield 3

In a short E3 interview Activision CEO Bobby Kotick cast doubt on the upcoming console version of Battlefield 3; saying  he’s not entirely confident the game will perform as well as the developers say.

So far I’ve only seen Battlefield 3 on a PC, I haven’t seen it on a console where the bulk of our business is,‘ Kotick told CNBC reporter.

If it’s just a PC title, as it looks like today, that’s just a small audience to participate,‘ he added.

Battlefield 3 was given an official release date of October 25th, 2 days ago at E3. The game will be released simultaneously on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, and although the main focus is on taking advantage of modern PC hardware, developer Dice are still promising a stunning looking game on the consoles.
