The Full Doom Experience Comes To PS3 For The First Time

PlayStation Blog: Doom 3: BFG Edition is set to launch on PlayStation 3 in October 2012, and brings with it the first two games in the iconic series. It means you’ll be able to play the entire Doom series on PS3 for the first time and see for yourself why many consider these games to be some of the most influential shooters of all time. (Doom, Doom 3 BFG Edition, Doom II, PS3)

I love this quote:

"I’d go so far as to say it’s the best implementation of stereoscopic 3D I’ve seen in a game so far. It really does draw you in."

Places like Bitmob just do not get it. 3D gaming is an incredible experience and I am really looking forward to the implementation in Doom 3 BFG.

Is it a surprise that a guy who worked on the game would think that his game gives the best experience? You're letting your Sony love goggles blind you Morgie.
Diver  +   1062d ago
an you're letting your sony hate goggles blind you. tons of people love 3D gaming. you think its fanboyism cause the 3D title morg likes happens to also be on ps3?

did you know morg posted once that he really loved the 3D in halo anniversary? course you dont cause you're not for anything good just hatin anything sony. peeps like you are the worst kind of people in here.

this article is about a multiplat game but focused on ps3. you just couldn't stop yourself from coming in here an trolling. actually its a personal attack. shame on this site that the worst posters with the least to offer got the most bubbles.

isnt 3d dead already. 3D has still has not made an impact... and most people I know dont give a crap about it... I know soon that it is going to be standard in all tvs but it still don't matter. And to say differently is to only try to blindly justify your own purchase of a 3D television... Sorry but no one cares about that........ and 3D gaming isn't the future it's a damn gimmick.... oh and Doom is a shitty game
LeShin  +   1062d ago
I remember the EXACT thing was said about HD when it was announced "it's not needed" "Not many households will have it" "It's a gimmick"

Lol now look. 3D is here to stay. There has to be some sort of progression to the inevitable hologram technology. The thing is, converted 3D is the crap thing. Movies & games built from the ground up in 3D look amazing with the right set up. Watched Avatar and played Uncharted 3 using my friends Sony HMZ-T1.....bloody hell it looked amazing!! So much so, I'm buying a unit next month!
avengers1978  +   1059d ago
All Im saying is 3D did not take off they way the TV manufactures hoped that it would. Now pretty much all new TV's that come out are 3D, and also smart tv's, but 3D is still not this huge in home thing. By default soon everyone will have 3D in there homes but I really dont see lots of people using on the regular.

SuperBeast811  +   1063d ago
halo is in full HD this year FINALLY welcome to 2006 xbox!!
SockeyBoy  +   1063d ago

1. Halo CE HD got released last year.

2. ICO was originally released in 2001 and also got a 2011 release the same as Halo.

3. Doom originally got released on XBLA in 2006.

4. Doom 2 originally got released on XBLA in 2010. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

Get owned Sockey! By the way, I didn't know that Doom 3: BFG Edition was released for the Xbox 360 in 2010? LOL fail.
Mr Logic  +   1062d ago
Let's look at this logically.
1. 360 has not enjoyed the "full experience" because if that were true, then they wouldn't be releasing this bundle of games for the 360 as well.

2. The article states they pretty much had to remake the whole game, aka not the same experience.

3. All PS3s will play the PS1 copy of Doom.

4. My ancient Zune HD can play Doom 2.

5. Halo CE HD doesn't count since it's a remake. Just like PS2 remakes of course they are going to be HD, but they still won't look that great.

On a separate note 3D gaming is fun. I loved the first two games back in the day, never got around to the third one. Looking forward to racking up some trophies with these cool games.

a disagree huh, ok its bad...real bad news for ps3/s
Holeran  +   1063d ago
I don't care if they are older games, they were great from the beginning
sandman224  +   1063d ago
Yes he admits the duel shock 3 anolog sticks feel great. In my opinion the analog placement and feel are the best in console controllers.
rmedtx  +   1063d ago
I can't wait. BTW... What about Doom 64?

Sweet love how there are 2 modes 1 with the original doom 3 without the flashlight mounted on and one with it now people can stop complaining about that :)
Moby-Royale  +   1063d ago
Lol yes, a very diplomatic solution.

Now everybody gets what he or she wants.

Felinox  +   1063d ago
Maybe a trophy for going classic...?
Cajun Chicken  +   1063d ago
I think this'll be more than enough to get newcomers warmed up for Doom 4.
Holeran  +   1063d ago
Is this going to be download only or is it going to be a $39.95 blue ray?
DOOMZ  +   1063d ago
Can't wait! Just wish they would have gotten Doom 64 on there....
NastyLeftHook0  +   1063d ago
So there’s the addition of the mounted flashlight to the game. Has anything else been modified for PS3?

Eric: We’re making textural improvements to the characters and demons. We’ve completely rewritten the network code so that multiplayer is a better experience. In addition there’s also the Lost Mission Pack, containing seven new levels. They pick up from a certain part of the story line in the main game – without giving too much away, it’ll all make sense when you play it. You’re a different guy in a different part of the base but it’s the same world

good news

I just wish they would port the first two games to the Vita. I remember playing Doom on the Gameboy SP lol, and emulations of it on the PSP. Actual copies to the Vita would be awesome!
Swiftfox  +   1063d ago
@ Cone, above.

Since for some reason N4G will not let me post a direct reply.

All PS3 models, "fat" and "slim", are capable of playing PS1 disc's. Only PS2 backwards compatibility was removed during the transition from "fat" to "slim" models.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1063d ago
I know, i'm so excited that Doom is coming to PS3 and that might give a possibility that Doom 4 will be multiplatform.
yeahokchief  +   1063d ago
no thank you
DestinyHeroDoomlord  +   1063d ago
4 player splitscreen = buy. I just hyped to 100%...
Rock_On_PS4  +   1062d ago
Full Doom experience comes to the PS3. Doom, Doom 2 and Doom 3 are dated games that are 10, 15 and 20 years old respectively.

There are a plethora of shooters on the market that literally blow Doom out of the water. Call of Duty, Killzone, Resistance, Halo and numerous other modern FPS series.

1990s nostalgia for Doom and Doom 2 and mid 2000s for Doom 3.

Subjectivity is a bitch. To say Call of Duty blows Doom out of the water? That's your opinion...and I can't agree. Resistance is in the same sub-genre with creatures and over-the-top guns, so I can see that comparison...

...that said, your closing statement is what this is about. They aren't releasing a package like this to plow the sales charts, or change the genre. It's a celebration of Doom and, like Duke Nukem Forever, it's for the fans.
Hanuman  +   1062d ago
I'd be more excited if they ported the first three Quake games. Those were better..
Old McGroin  +   1062d ago
Agreed. Quake 2 is one of the best games I've ever played - the soundtrack was rockin'!

Still, looking forward to the Doom package - I have Doom on the 360 but think I got it a little late, found it nearly impossible to find an online match for co-op and deathmatch so hopefully won't have the same problem this time around!
sarshelyam  +   1062d ago
Well, if this does well enough, perhaps they'll consider it?
chukamachine  +   1062d ago
Loved doom3.

I.d should have improved the engine with texture improvements, shaders, shadows, and other places.

I think RAGE looked great from a distance.

But just blurred into Resistance3 textures close up/
tokugawa  +   1062d ago
doom, i dont know. perhaps a new doom or one for the next gen would get my hyped.

lol they obviously didnt try the 3D on a piece of shit sony bravia tv! if you want quality 3D, then dont buy a sony set. for any disagrees, google sony 3D crosstalk to see what i mean.

i am in a fight with sony and the shop where i bought my bravia because the 3D on it is abysmal! get a passive lg if you want decent 3D
Shnazzyone  +   1062d ago
Oh... that's nice. but I've had the full doom experience on my GBA since 2001
Deathdeliverer  +   1062d ago
Say what you want but Doom was terrifying. Those pixelated globs might not look like much, but the SFX are so damn good that they draw you in. And its also one of the pioneers of the rocket jump strategy. (along with quake, duke nukem, and the unreal games)
nik666uk  +   1062d ago
Jesus there's some PATHETIC people on here!!!!
Mkai28  +   1062d ago
Let's hope it won't be, The Full 30fps Experience Comes To PS3.
StreetsofRage  +   1062d ago
3D makes everything dark. Doom 3 is already too dark. You're going to miss out on all the lil details.
MidWest_MoFo  +   1062d ago
This is great to hear! Loved the classic DOOM games from back in the day and can't wait to jump into DOOM 3 again! Stereoscopic 3D support as well? Oh, hell yeah!!
