EA Los Angeles has told Eurogamer that Red Alert 3 really will look and play better on PS3 than on Xbox 360.
Thats great, but will never match the point and click of a PC. but good for all ps3 owners who waited for this game.
It will never match it because thats up to the developers. They could choose to enable support for mouse and keyboard if they wish, they could choose to add full modding support if they wish. Most developers choose to ignore these PS3 features though.
full modding support? not sure if your aware but most pc mods are made by the fans. Your asking alot if you think the fans are going to make a ps3 port of their mod. ps2 has proved that keyboards won't work on consoles. until it's proven otherwise. pc is the platform of choice for RTS both control and graphics wise.
Those that wanted this game and did not have a 360 bought it for their PC's, the best possible platform for this game.
the problem sstill is that they try to make a pc rts on consoles instead of reworking and coming up with a new way of controlls and camera to fit a controller.
Consoles can do pretty much everything that pc games do in terms of games. USB enables pretty much every single controller you will ever want to plug in your system. if you like using mouse and keyboard its just matter of the game supporting it. Mods are a bit complicated expecialy if you look at MS who is a bit over protective when it comes to this subject (they have their reasons tough) but Unreal 3 pretty much showed that Consoles can handle mods pretty well. too bad that its still the only game to actualy make it bossible. It would be a new challenge for the modders too to make their mod work on Pc and then make it work on consoles. Definetly a worthy skill if your aiming to become a developer.
I disagreed with you on 1 count. The FragFX controller for the PS3 will give you the controls of the mouse. If EA considered the alternate use of the FragFX it will come close to that of the PC. Just using that on FPS I ALMOST get the same feel as using a mouse and gaming keypads.
What did you expect EA to say? I will wait and see for myself.
That's one multiplatform company who doesn't care about Microsoft's checks. I'm glad they admitted the truth rather than say all versions are equal like most companies do. Some games ARE equal...but most aren't in terms of audio and visual quality.
it should! the game is coming out the latest among all and they need to justify the delay with whatever thing they have to make people buy it! the PS3 natively support mouse and keyboard, so why don't you use that instead, EA? afraid of something or just plain ignorance?
good job ea. finally learning how to use the cell
i want to see EA take full advantage of the cell...i know they can deliver some insane sports games with the ps3...i want fifa 10 to be fueled by PSU and CPU and GPU and ESZ and OQE and SMD and FU at full power like god of war, uncharted 2 and killzone!!!! aaaaah FIFAAAAAAAA WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOO
good job EA keep up the good work & you will earn what you deserve.
not an RTS fan but might buy this
And in other news, Halo wars will look and play better, and sell more and get higher reviews, then C&C3.
I don't think so, just face it. Personally i think the Xbox has reached it's peak in 2008, it's about time the Xbox moved over so PS3 can take gamers to new heights.
@ fox People like you encourage micro$haft to downgrade this generation of games. How does it feel to know you are contributing to the lack of innovation and groundbreaking games? All 360 owners should be proud of such a historical achievement.
Wow, you people based that all on my comment that Halo wars will be better ? No wonder shrinks get payed so much these days. Oh and ontopic, Halo wars is supposed to do the same for RTS games, that Halo did for shooters, without Halo there wouldnt even be a game called Killzone by now. So MS does plenty of innovation.
They told us the same about Bioshock, but the 360 version is better than the PS3 one...
and gta4 K for the disagreeérs The ps3 version of gta4 is in lower resulution, and uses motion blur to compensate. Technically that means the ps3 version of gta4 is inferior, however before gta4 went retail it was said the ps3 version would be superior. Maybe trough your eyes the ps3 version looks better, but then again, ive heard a lot of people claim that gta ps3 has awesome AA, while in fact it got no AA, it got motion blur.
naw. it was the same boring game
@ godmoney and foxgod. i must respectfully disagree with both of you. i have played both bioshock and gta4 completely through on both systems (bioshock multiple times). there is nothing that stands out as being better visually in either game on either system. granted, they did tell us that the PS3 version of bioshock would be better looking and it really isn't which is disappointing. but overall, outside of a few textures here and there, both versions look and play the same to me. but hey, that's just my opinion.
Just to clarify, the PS3 version DOES have AA, but it's that weird type of Quincunx AA that most PS3 games have. Quincunx makes for a smoother-looking image, but in a lot of cases it can end up softening it (unfortunately).
True, its Quincunx AA your right about that. But i think AA looks ways better, and technically it is better.
For some reason, I see a bloody fanboy flamewar to start over THOSE comments. Let me just get some popcorn so I can relax while I watch this happen.
Ps3fans always seem to expect a flamewar when something negative is said about the 360. However the worst flamewars occur when something bad is said about the ps3.... Nobody cares when someone badmouth's the 360.
yea its always the same. Xmen always on damage control.
Actually its worse when Xbox fanboys think they have a better version of something and the whole thing turns into a bragging pissing contest. I was just going to say, where are all the PS3 owners bragging. There aent any. We're just happy our version is good, not rubbing in that its better. If it was reverse you'd have a hundred xboxers telling us what a waste of $600.
It always seems worse because the other people are the ones doing it. To someone like me, who has no console preference either way, you're all incredibly c*nty when something like this is said.
this is better on PC. DS3 just can't match Mouse click for these type of games.
where were you when they released it on the XB2?
I thought I heard the PS3 version will let you use keyboard and mouse support. Is this true?
Yeah, it's true. I have to ask, why do they make them for console anyways? RTS is for the computer, it's where it belong. : (
if the people wanting mouse/keyb support keep on demanding it it will be patched in if possible
Most of the actual audience isn't going to use it, so it's pretty much a waste of developers time.
It's almost like these articles are phrased to start fanboy wars, it says looks best on the PS3, and then says it looks better than the 360 version, the reviews of the 360 version complained about bland graphics so it's not really that hard to improve, and it's not the best looking version, it could just be the best looking console version. In a lot of cases you could argue that the PC version might not generate as much sales or something like that so it's not really as relevant, but in this case, both console versions are pretty irrelevant and no one really cares about this outside of internet fanboys that populate places like this.
I've played the demo and i tell you it looked gorgeous! So ... Blææææhhhh ! ! !
Haha lol. I think you will find that FPS came from Wolfenstein 3D http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Every other shooter in history has spawned from that game. What has Halo done for shooters, please tell me.
I already have the PC version.
PS3 superior version confirmed.
Xbots have been rubbing our faces in to for the past 2 years, it's time for them to eat a little now. Your going to see more stories along these lines from now on. The PS3 has technology that will see it through the next few years, that was Sony's "long term plan" and Xbox owners will see that. The Xbox is already looking tired with it's Dvd drive and the processor being pushed to the limit already, hence with all the over heating problems.
You guys sure do get excited over old Xbox 360 games, but when 360 gets a superior version on an older PS3 game (VF5) its because developers had more time.. right?
Red Alert 3 is just an ugly game, even on the PC lol And why would anyone want to play an RTS on the console lol console RTS will never work
Red Alert was awesome on the N64.
This game was pretty weak to me, I liked Tiberium much better
That's great to hear, but I still won't be buying it for my PS3 anytime soon
The controls always worked. And it had the best music. But EA should really get the mouse keyboard support.
Foxgod. The PS3 version of GTA4 was a port, plain and simple. Yes it was a lower resolution. But provided better shadows, Did more per pixel. Better water fx. Go have a look if you don't believe me. Good to see that some devs are finally starting to use the cell. I doubt GTA4 even used 4 of the spu's. ROFL.
Weird, i wouldn't expect that from EA. But maybe, if they add mouse+key support....
well, its late for 3 months when other two platform already out. Of course they gonna say something like that, try to boost some sale.
