    Digital Foundry vs. the Battlefield 4 beta

    It's been a long console generation but the end is in sight with the release of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One set for this November. But the PS3/360 legacy lives on - the sheer size of their combined installed base means that publishers can't leave the old machines behind just yet. Hence the arrival of "cross-gen" games; titles developed for current and next generation consoles simultaneously. Battlefield 4 is, perhaps, the most anticipated of these releases, with the promise of delivering the full PC experience on both next generation consoles at 60fps. Expectations are high for the new platforms but what of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 experience? Does Frostbite 3 bring anything new to the table for these ageing consoles? How do these versions compare to Battlefield 4 running on a more powerful PC? And with the arrival of last week's beta test, can we extrapolate anything about the next-gen console versions from the PC game?....

    PC version is riddled with high CPU usage for even high end systems. My PC is far from high end but it runs smoothly then it dips to 5 or even less FPS for a couple seconds.

    I noticed in the 720 vs 1080 vs 900 screen shot that the text chat box takes up more space on the lower resolutions.
