The same can be said when comparing the XBox 360 version to the PC version. This is what happens when you create a game for the PC and drop it on consoles. BAD IDEA. We have seen by example what the PS3 and Xbox 360 are capable of graphically with titles like Killzone 2, UC:2, GeOW 2, etc... When the games are made for a specific platform by capable devs the results are quite amazing. When they are made by a PC studio and ported to consoles in hopes of extra sales this is what we get. Demand better.

PC you've done it again, btw was optimised for consoles then to PC it seems, wtf no dedicated servers! ARGH!
YoungKiller25  +   1971d ago
this is definitely a PC game not console game
droid and bot  +   1971d ago
i think an open system like the PC with technical unlimited powers and no limitations to consider
should not be compared with closed system like the PS3 or 360 where the developers got limitations to consider

and that's because
in PC
the gamer should follow the developers and the game requirements

while on consoles
its the developers that got to follow the consoles requirements

that’s why always
no matter what you did
the PC version of any game
well be always 1000000 times better than the consoles version

I was going off what my friend who seems obsessed with this game told me. Damn him and his lies!
Thanks Pandamobile for your enlightenment

That's not true...

The game is made on PC. They use an in-game mission editor (that comes with the PC version of the game) to make the entire game. Sort of like what Crytek does.
badz149  +   1971d ago
erm...what are they trying to say with this comparison?
are they trying to imply that the PS3 is not capable of incredible graphic? or simply wanna boast about what a powerful PC runs rounds over the consoles? but the console version of this game doesn't even look better than BF:BC! try KZ2 if anybody really think that the PS3 is not capable of so much more!

@ druid & bot

all it i takes is a 150usd gpu upgrade on a 2 year old pc

to beat any of the consoles.

imo pc gaming is now cheaper then consoles.
Syronicus  +   1970d ago
This game is best on the PC.
But if you do not have a PC then the PS3 version will be the best you will see and play. That is, in comparison to the PS3 and PC versions of course.
SeanScythe  +   1971d ago
All I can say is what are you expecting? Anything on console compared to PC is going to look like it is running on the Wii. Maybe if the game was built on console first then ported to PC but that's not going to happen. It's still a good game and I'm thinking of getting both versions if I enjoy the PS3 version.
Raf1k1  +   1971d ago
True. It's usually a waste of time comparing to the PC.
'More details and better textures' are to be expected on the PC version.
free2game365  +   1971d ago
Given the current state of development no, most games usually look exactly the same on PCs as consoles.

PC version looks much better...

well if you have a High end PC.
Pandamobile  +   1971d ago
Any midrange PC will run OF:DR2 better than the PS3/360.

It looks and runs great on my dual core CPU and 8800 GTS 512 (not my main PC)

No problems maxing the game out at 1680 x 1050 with 4x anti-aliasing.

"It looks and runs great on my dual core CPU and 8800 GTS 512 (not my main PC) No problems maxing the game out at 1680 x 1050 with 4x anti-aliasing"

According to your statement, My laptop Dual Core T9300 cpu (2.5ghz w/ 6mb cache) with 512 8800gts, will run this game on max settings. I was going to wait for the demo to see how it fairs before I buy.

CptBach  +   1971d ago
The PC resolution is 2,560 x 1,600 with 4x Sparse Grid Super Sampling AA .. It is a high performance PC less than 5% of people have PCs that can handle that resolution

you cant say that the PC version looks better
champ21  +   1971d ago
lol you dont need a hi end pc for 2560*1600

all it takes will be a 200usd gpu to do that :P
JustinSaneV2  +   1970d ago
So you're saying that if only 5% of the populace can play the game at maximum settings then the game does not truly look better than KZ2?

looks like u are picking faults to most ps3 games even if they was exclusive

get ps3 vs xbox up we dont need pc port crap

and xbox vs pc
Pandamobile  +   1971d ago
It's pretty clear which platforms are the 'ports'.
Ju  +   1971d ago
Why does it have "trouble" ? Because it can't break memory limitations or what ? Obviously you can use whatever you got on a PC, and that ain't 512MB, no? Thus higher polycount and more details. Obviously.

I might get it for the PC. Not sure. Like my controller better, though. But PC is $49. Not sure if I want to spend the big bucks for this game to play it on the PS3...
Pandamobile  +   1971d ago
That's precisely what I mean by 'trouble'.

If it's having a hard time doing it or it can't do it at all, it's having what we call 'trouble'.
champ21  +   1971d ago

no point getting any multiplat game on the consoles

controler works great on the pc.

you get the game cheaper, it runs on higher resolutions and better fps and mod support later on.

imo buying all the multiplats on the pc is a huge saving by the end of the year.

15games bought a year 10usd difference per game... thats your gpu upgrade right there.
Ju  +   1970d ago
Got it on Steam for $39.99 now.

But anyhow, I have Far Cry 2 for both, the PS3 and the PC (Quad, 9800GT, 4GB RAM, 1920x1200 27" TFT). And I still prefer to play it on the PS3. I don't know what it is. Easy of use, it still feels more fluent on the PS3 (even if the FPS and AA and res is higher on the PC). But for the 40 I give it a try. Can't be that bad.
THC CELL  +   1971d ago
i cant wait to see xbox vs pc lol

few pointers to mr pc man up there

in this shot ps3 wins with better draw distance
yet i no full well he is on limited hdmi settings the game is too bright

player in ps3 version looks better if u look at his face and that

to mr pc man aboth only finds out the grass renders better in the pc version


to mr pc and grass man ps3 wins again look to the left and there are more trees then the pc version i guess now u must say the pc is struggling to render trees right ?

f**k it man i will enjoy this game on any console
and i will admit the only advantage pc has over the consoles is online and the mood of the sunset and daylight

up next pc vs xbox vs ps3 right lets see who is last

the xbox does not perform draw distance very good, just look at the cryengine 3 PS3 vs xbox comparisons

Can i play this game?
Pandamobile  +   1971d ago
Play? Yes, play well? Not so much.

The 9500 sucks pretty bad. Get a GTS 250 or something and you'll be good to go.
DavidMacDougall  +   1971d ago
Nah i'll just stick to TF2 and get Dragon on the PS3.

Of course the PC version looks better...what kind of an article is this?
gameangel  +   1971d ago
What are they using to capture the PS3 shots though? The PS3 and 360 shots from this site always look a bit blurred, which makes me think they're using some sort of analogue capture process.

You seem to have some sort of relationship with your PC.

Sort of like the same healthy relationship you have with what ever the hell gaming console you have?
dkgshiz  +   1971d ago
"Sort of like the same Healthy relationship"
LOL, you admit it then. Oh also, I don't praise my console like it were a new born baby or something. Video games are a small party of my life. I'm glad about that. Seriously man, theres more to life then your PC. Even if your pc has a nice 12 inch strap on that you most likely put on it. You know its true.

This game is gimped for PC...
Much like codies other recent releases - this is a console game which they've also given a PC release.

No dedicated server -> 32 player MP limit, encrypted files to impede mods, and watching a live stream a minute ago - no weapon recoil! Also the AI command interface is the same as the console versions including the overly deep menu structure - and the AI seems to lack potency.

As for foliage - turns out this is like ARMA - the foliage is gimped by draw distance so no hiding in the brush....

Basically ARMA 2 is still the "best" you'll find for a mil. infantry sim (that is a depressing thing to say). This is console wannabe PC gaming since codies know that consoles is where the money is.

I'll get it to try out the co-op on the PS3 so I can trade it in quick. PC version I'll check out if some worthwhile mods do find their way to release.

champ21  +   1971d ago

do you enjoy paying your taxes to sony?

must be cool.. when they deliver you with low res games for a higher price ;-)
Its_The_Truth  +   1971d ago
This Article is Fail
If you notice the 2 screens are taken from 2 different moments from the game so of course the PS3 is gonna be dimmer. If you notice the smoke in the PS3 version is brown/dark resembling explosion of some sort where as the PC version is white smoke resembling a tactical smoke grenade so again I say FAIL
Pandamobile  +   1971d ago
Yet you missed the obvious texture detail, or lack thereof, most of the grass is gone, and the PS3 version is extremely blurry. It's probably running at 1/2 the FPS of the PC version too.
SpitFireAce85  +   1971d ago
Hey Pandamobile
How much did your rig cost you? and dont tell me you built it with
pvc pipes and some radioshack motorolas.Cause my PS3 cost me 299$
and i dont have to upgrade my graphics card every two years.

PS.As for PS3 or XB360 not handling foliage/grass go check
out FarCry 2!.piss poor porting job
champ21  +   1971d ago
i could build you a rig a for 500usd

and it will perform 200-300% better then either of the consoles.

and overtime because the games are cheaper.. it will cost you cheaper then the ps3 or the 360. plus it wont need to be upgraded for the entire gen.

console gaming is obselete.. we really dont neeed to pay microsoft or sony an extra 10usd per game... we dont need the middle men.
Barragan  +   1971d ago
told you
pc fans will flood out anything that has to do with graphics
champ21  +   1971d ago
breaking news pc versions 10usd cheaper too

muhahaha.. i feel sorry for all those paying taxes to sony or microsoft then getting a low res cppy.

get with the program ppl get a 150usd gpu and enjoy games the way they are ment to be played.
champ21  +   1971d ago
make that 20usd cheaper on steam. sell for 39usd on steam.

haha.. why do ppl even bother buying multiplatform games on consoles.
xg-ei8ht  +   1970d ago
Another poor port.


Sorry but does not look that good to me, even running on PC.
pr0digyZA  +   1970d ago
Not the best looking game available at the moment.though i must say pc looks the best and not just in graphics but in the scores it has been receiving.Heard controls are a pain on consoles.
bjornbear  +   1970d ago
So if i bought a PC for €299
I'd get these PC graphics? AWSUM!!..../s
t850  +   1970d ago
a 299euro pc should be able to run this game at max settings @ 1080p

something a console will only dream of doing.

also remember over time because pc games are cheaper.. the pc will be cheaper then any console.

imo its a fact now that consoles cost more in the long run (1yr of gaming) then a pc. while the console user is restricted to lower resolutions, no kb/mouse support and no mods. Also usually pc will get free dlcs, console user will be charged.
snaileri  +   1970d ago
Only a fool would play on a console.
Yeah I know, there's lots of fools then.

PC will do every that consoles do, and a lot more, a lot better.

Every console gamer has some kind of mainstream PC just to be able to suft the web. So:
Basic PC + Gaming Console = 800e (online gaming fee + expensive games)
High end gaming PC = 800e (no fee, cheap games)
ps3ftwin  +   1970d ago
well yea i buy all my multiplatform games on my pc

i use the ps3 just for its exaclusives.

no point getting multiplats on ps3 they cost too much.. and they cant compete agains the pc.
