Head2Head: Battlefield 4 Beta Screenshot Comparison (PS3 vs Xbox 360)

Lens of Truth writes"Welcome back for another exciting Head2Head! This week we take a closer look at EA’s Battlefield 4 Demo for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Clearly thus far, one version has a huge graphically advantage over the other, but can you find the differences?." (Battlefield 4, PS3, Xbox 360)

wow Xbox 360 version got spanked BAD!
Tooly  +   784d ago
damn 360 really got spanked...gasp
ShinMaster  +   784d ago
I'm wondering if people honestly still care about PS3/360 comparisons almost 8 years after they launched.
Kemistri  +   784d ago
I'm curious if for some odd reason that the xbox 360 version is missing the "HD Texture Pack" - Similar to what BF3 looks like without it installed.

Perhaps an oversight regarding the 360 Beta version?

Only speculating, because I don't really give a crap at this point.
sAVAge_bEaST  +   784d ago
Yea, Ps3 looked noticeably better.


Neither one has the 'HD Texture's'.. those come on disk install, on both systems.
Kemistri  +   784d ago
@sAVAge_bEaST - I understand that but considering that this was all downloaded and installed to the hard drive (the nature of the BETA and how it's delivered to the "testers") - I was assuming they would have included the HD Textures since they can be streamed from the hard drive as was required by BF3.

I think it's safe to assume that will still be the method used for the current gen version of BF4.

It was more of a curious statement/comment rather than anything else. I have zero bias toward either platform.
FamilyGuy  +   784d ago
The 360 version is obviously/definitely missing its HD Texture pack. Why would they release the Beta in this form? They should know that this will negatively impact interest in the game even though it's definitely not going to ship to retail looking like that.

Also interesting was the X1 beta having huge input lag. Wtf is going on with these guys. Beat or not it's representing your game and you should have major things that would put off consumers sorted out before showing it to them.

I've played plenty of betas and these are things that are usually fixed in alpha stages.
memots  +   784d ago
Actually, Why do they even bother releasing it on ps3/360 ?

Put the effort in making pc/ps4/bone edition as good as possible instead.

Edit : don't bother telling me about install base i know how this goes.

Graphics are bad for both. Boycott both COD and BF please!
MysticStrummer  +   784d ago
"I'm wondering if people honestly still care about PS3/360 comparisons almost 8 years after they launched."

Why wouldn't they? It will be a long time until PS4 and XB1 have a bigger install base than PS3 and 360. People all over the world will still be trying to decide which version to get.

360 version looks like arse! i downloaded it in favour of the ps3 version because of the control pad.

I hope Star Wars battlefront gets something exclusive on Xbox one. I plan on buying an Xbox one because I love halo, but right now there isn't much great things about the system. Ps4 is more powerful, cheaper, likely to have more owners, more first parties, remote play, Xbox gets.....halo. Sigh.....
DeFFeR  +   784d ago

And Forza, and Titanfall.

I'll be playing KZ Shadowfall until I find a XBOne in the wild, then I'll be playing Forza and possibly Ryse.
finbars75  +   784d ago
I agree the xbox got the short end of the stick but holy high hell the beta looks dam ugly.I know its about a 7 month old build possibly longer but Dice could have given us more to the beta then this.Its only a few weeks away and I dont care if its a beta or not it really sends the wrong message of how the game is going to be.Im enjoying it but feel disspointed at time to time.Im looking forward to the PS4 version no doubt because no offense the PS3 version is really going to lack any depth that the game offers.

The difference is very noticeable unlike some past comparisons. As we near the end of a generation, it looks like the 360 tapped out of power years ago, while the PS3 is still barely, but gracefully keeping up at its old age and limits.

Keep in mind that these are beta's. Having said that, textures do look better on PS3.
BallsEye  +   784d ago
Exactly. It was same story with bf3 beta, at the end both versions turned out the same and much better than what beta offered. Dice likes to put out very old build for beta.
HaMM4R  +   784d ago
I know, but what is the point in putting out an old build for the beta? Whats the point in searching for bugs that have most likely been fixed since then. Its more of a demo than a beta.
Ezz2013  +   784d ago

No, ps3 was the better version of the two
solar  +   784d ago
thought console gamers dont care about graphics.
memots  +   784d ago

Nice pc troll comment. I care about graphic as much as the next guy and that is why i game mostly on PC, Even is console Multiplatform graphic aren't the best we got on these 8 years old console some very solid Exclusive in the graphic department.

( i clicked agree btw since i agree that console gamer don't just care about graphic )

Yeah I was a little dissapointed this morning when I downloaded it on the 360, didnt think there would be a huge difference now im going to have to download it on the PS3. But this is definately a game meant for the next gen consoles I wouldnt dare cheat myself on either the 360 or the PS3 just like Diablo :D
PR0X1  +   784d ago
LoT never installs HD textures on the 360 even on retail games. The website is made by Sony fanboys for Sony fanboys. Just buy the version you like the best.
Syntax-Error  +   783d ago
I played the PS3 version all last night and THIS GAME SUCKS!!!! I love BF, but I am so disappointed with this. The control scheme is COD to the fullest. The crouch feature has moved from R3 to the 'B" or 'O' button and melee has moved from the RT or R1 to the R3. The destruction is garbage. Indestructible walls and billboards. Snipers on the roof shooting and hiding behind huge billboards. 1 building in the whole map can collapse...WTF IS THAT? Blew down interior walls but exterior walls remained. Indestructible crates. GTFOH Not worth $60.

"Good luck with those PC exclusives....."

Another mindless console fanboy who has no idea about pc gaming. PC has more exclusives than any platform. Also unlike consoles our "can't miss exclusives" aren't just generic third person action game #78467252 and generic shooter #24697694. I guess innovation is lost on you console people. It's funny how jealous you people on this website get when anything PC is mentioned.

Sorta like how the OP brought in 2 systems that also had nothing to do with the article? Hypocrites much? PC gamers are the the biggest trolls you think? I guess you haven't been reading many comments on this site if you think that. The next gen system trolls far outweigh the pc ones. It's nonstop 50% this 50% that around here.

well as far as ive been on this site in '07, console gamers care about games not graphics. yet all we see here is Sony Extremists say graphics dont matter....unless Xbox is in the conversation.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   784d ago

Says who? Of course graphics matter.And of course console gamers compare graphics in games.They're machines with fixed specs.

It makes sense.

Whereas your PC doesn't have the same specs as my PC and my PC doesn't have the same specs as the next guy.Why compare game graphics? Why must you PC fanatics be so ridiculous and void of common sense?
Themba76  +   784d ago
PC is only good if all you play is multiplayer games in that case PC is better. the PC online community for starters is far more mature. also the graphic performance in their online games is noticably better as well. too bad i love single player exclusives PC is lacking bad in that department. consoles are far better for singleplayer experiences.
GarrusVakarian  +   784d ago
I downloaded the Xbox 360 beta earlier today and i thought i was playing a PS2 game. It was horrible. But i don't like playing FPS games with the PS3 controller so ill just wait for the PS4 version.

Lol, you obviously haven't ever seen the PS4 controller. Triggers curved upwards, longer and bigger handles, redesigned sticks, touchpad, wider gap inbetween the sticks.

The Xbox One controller looks more like the 360 controller than the DS4 looks like the DS3.

Yeah, they looks the same...../s

dcj0524  +   784d ago
Its very different and similar. Most people say its better than the 360 controller and on par/better than the ONE ( it varies). Its much much beter for FPS now when I used it as TGS.
Magicite  +   784d ago
Playing FPS game without mouse? Why would anyone do that?
GarrusVakarian  +   784d ago
The mouse i don't mind, its the keyboard part i hate. Its so uncomfortable, and you know how us console gamers love comfort.
clearelite  +   784d ago
I do both comfortably.
alexkoepp  +   784d ago
Because when you shoot a gun you pull a trigger, not click a button
duplissi  +   784d ago
Triggers on a console are nothing like actual triggers on weapons. that is a poor comparison. not saying your preference is wrong by any means.
Swiggins  +   784d ago
There is a noticeable advantage graphically for the PS3.

It looks like the 360's beta is missing half of it's textures...I don't know if that's because of the limitations of the console (not likely) or that it's poorly optimized for the system (more likely).

Getting the PS3 version either way because I wanna upgrade it to the PS4 version eventually.
4logpc  +   784d ago
we are comparing betas now...why not wait till the boxed product hits?

Get a cronus adapet-It lets you use any contorller or keyboard on any system

Also there are 3rd party controller that look and feel better than the 360 controller for shooters for the PS3. You've been living under a rock.

I use a mouse a keyboard for shooters on my ps3

So much fail in one sentence...I can't...Mater of fact, I can. First off, you'd like Microsoft too if they were shoving money in your pockets just to get DLC exclusive release dates for BF4 and a Titan Fall timed release date. I guarantee BF4 looks better on PS4 and when Titan Fall gets released on PS4 in 2015, It'll look better than Xbox One version. You're a fool if you think EA will keep Titan Fall exclusive to Xbone.

PsylentKiller  +   784d ago
If you look at the last pic. you will see stuff is completely missing. Check out the catwalk and the railing. The builds can't be the same. Missing textures would account for missing structures, right?
FITgamer  +   784d ago
The beta on current consoles looks horrible, regardless which one you are on. I played on pc on low settings yesterday and downloaded it for PS3 today. Even on low settings it still looked way better than PS3 version. So for those planning on getting it for next-gen consoles it will look way better than on current gen.
PsylentKiller  +   784d ago
I played on pc on ultra and it looks phenomenal. I also played on ow and medium settings to get a feel for what it will be like on the XB1 and it still looked good. I'll be getting the XB1 version most likely cause my fiancée has taken over my PC for FFXIV.
FITgamer  +   784d ago
Yeah i don't normally play on pc, i downloaded it for the same reason to get a feel of how it will be on next-gen consoles. I wasn't disappointed. Feel sorry for those getting it on current-gen though, it's not gonna be the same experience.

Question, since it was said Frostbite 3 can not be supported on Wii U, since the Wii U is similarly or a bit more powerful than both PS360, is it really it cannot handle F3 or simply BS talk from EA to not support it, what does the Wii U lack in a spec stand-point compared to PS360? Not a Nintendo fan, just being wondering since BF3 never released on Wii U, I mean, NFS:MW is a F2 game, it would of ran BF3 just fine.

I believe that is a BS technical explanation from EA to not to support a Wii U version for financial reasons only. 3rd party games sell like crap on Nintendo systems even though the Wii U has been proven to be technically capable compared to X360/PS3.

Ehh its just a beta version. Just like BF3 on 360 and ps3 the 360 runs better and looks better. The benchmarks don't lie. Just like the XB1 BF4 is going to run better and smoother than the PS4. Don't forget EA favors Microsoft cause they get paid more from them. That's why they get the DLC contents first.
memots  +   784d ago
They are stress testing the servers for multiplayer, They aren't showcasing how the game looks. Everyone should calm down.

I don't why I still care about these comparison, but the fact is I do.

Can't wait for PS4 versus xone comparisons.

I don't really mind the graphics. It's the gameplay that gets me to buy a game. To be honest, I played it and it looks like BF3 which I don't mind. I won't be getting a ps4 till the summer when there are more games out so the 360 version on bf4 will be just fine.
