Nextgamer posted 3 HighRes screenshots of Battlefield: bad company 2.
Very amazing. Bad Company 2 beta is already better than Modern Warfare 2 game.
Very nice indeed.....cant wait for March, great month of gaming
Me want DX11 goodness, this game will pwn on PC
DX11 on pc?
bullshots or PC builds with DX11
Your name suits you. And if anything, it's PC shots. DICE doesn't need to fake the high quality of their games on PC. Believe it or not, PC games look very good.
Looks sweet, got to be PC screens, looks great on consoles too...I'm no longer a PC gamer but I'll definitely be picking this up. JOY
Yup, it's been confirmed to support DX11 on PC. Also, higher player counts, 3D support, Squad Rush gamemode at launch without having to pre-order at GameStop, and more.
Is there an alternate source or can someone host? Blocked for me at work :(
These screenshots are nothing. The Frostbite Engine rendering the cutscenes for Bad Company 2 are beyond the quality I've seen in a game yet other than U2. The differences are that U2 has a more plastic look, while BFBC2 has a more vivid look.
1024x576 =/= high res
Yep, still waiting 1080p PC screens
Dx11 + (1080p+) is the way to go for this game, not to mention M/KB and dedicated servers. I'll upload some maxed out beta pics this thursday =) I believe eyefinity will be supported as well...not sure if thats a fair advantage though, lol
It's funny, but it seems like PC gamers always feel the need to tout the superiority of the PC.... It's as if they are attempting to find any conceivable way of bringing consoles down a notch. Funny how this video game business has gotten so personal to so many, kinda interesting what this says about the society we live in when people take time out to defend an inanimate object that will most likely be replace with something better eventually anyway. But I guess this is across the board with Wii, PS3 and 360 fanatics as well. It just seems like these days PC gamers really feel left out of the conversation when it comes to video games, could be the diminishing popularity of the PC as a gaming platform in the less than optimal economy we have today... who knows. Anyway, on topic, this game does look a lot better than MW2 IMO, should be cool to see how it turns out, especially because people are saying good things about the beta. Good times for gamers all around.
I have a choice how to play this game, which is why I will play it on my PC not my PS3. Consoles are just really dated atm, and it would be great for gaming if new systems came out. A quote from DICE, "I feel optimistic about the future of PC gaming, we have a strong hardcore fan base on the PC that helped build us as a company and we are looking forward to (again) fulfilling their thirst for innovative PC games going forward. Especially as the gap between what is possible on a modern PC and the consoles grows wider and wider. The PC as a platform is very important also in the long term, as it is a free and open platform where it is up to only the developer to innovate and find a model for his/hers game that works compared to only working within the walled gardens of a fixed console (although that can have its benefits as well). It is no surprise to me that some of the fastest growing and most innovative sections of the games industry are on the PC if you see it as a whole with MMOs, Play4Free games (like Battlefield: Heroes) and social media games. I see this as a continuing trend and orthogonal to console gaming, although I would also prefer to see more of the multi-platform games taking their time to adapt them to the PC to take advantage of its unique strengths. We will try to do our part." Hint- PC gaming isn't diminishing, it's growing strong (over 20 million people on Steam) It is also evolving into a MMO platform(not just RPG's look at APB), as it pioneered multiplayer gaming.
Funny you tout all the features and advantages that PC has over the consoles yet you own a console yourself. Collectively console gamers according to your numbers outnumber PC gamers on the 360 alone and when you consider the PS3 and Wii numbers, well, you get the picture. You even own a PS3 by your own admission, so your elitist view of the PC is not really logical.... The fact is that you have just proven my point that PC gamers feel left out of the conversation these days. The article wasn't even about a specific format, it was about the game in general and some pics. Your thesis above was entertaining, but in the end unnecessary. You can be happy with your PC version and the "superior" mouse and keyboard setup (your opinion) and I will be happy with my PS3 version and "superior" DS3 (my opinion), see how personal choice works. In the end, a few pixels here and their aren't going to ruin my experience if I do get the game as it will still look phenomenal on my 1080p, 120hz Samsung. Fortunately for me, my job, social life and responsibilities hinder my ability to sit 2 feet from the television and lament over a few missing leaves or some missing AA. I only have time to enjoy the game, which is the definition of a true gamer if I ever heard one. Anyway, enjoy your PC brotha, good day. lol.
Lol wow, getting nasty now! Elitist? Cool title bro I happen to have everything hooked up to my LED Samsung as well(YES PC ON AN HDTV IMAGINE THAT) But definitely NOT 120hz mode on. You use that for gaming? Ever heard of a thing called input lag? I guess with a "superior" controller the reflexes do not matter much. BTW it wasn't long winded, ctrl+c then ctrl+v. Here read, http://game.amd.com/us-en/c... Cool stuff in there, will eventually come to consoles, but its great to have it now.
My setup doesn't lag, but as I said, I'm not 2 inches away from the screen counting pixels. lol. From one gamer to another, you really need to take it easy bro, offering up links to things based on this article? All because I stated a fact about PC gaming? I feel for you man, hope 2010 brings better things than defending your PC, lol. The world is a beautiful place, and i'm not talking about WoW, hahaha. Take it easy, lol. People on this site are a riot, gets me through the day the right way. Hahahahaha.
Mouse aiming >>>>> controller aiming
do the same thing? touting the superiority of consoles over pc? i've heard lots of ridiculous statements from consolites, ranging from uc2 beats crysis graphics (though it's mildly acceptable in some case, but overall untrue) to xbox live is better than steam. fanboys are fanboys.
Not all 120hz tv's lag. My LG led doesn't lag...but the Samsung I returned to get the LG did. Also sharps have no noticeable lag. I still leave my 120hz off. Artifacts = eww. I often game on my Tv as others stated above. Mouse and Keyboard > Gamepad isn't a relevant argument on pc. Why? Because PC gamers actually have the choice of both. Choice > gamepad = relevant argument. Sometimes I mouse and keyboard, sometimes I use the wireless controller from my 360. When it comes down to it there is no best choice in gaming. I prefer my pc...but it's not perfect. PC gamers tend to run into more problems than consoles just because we have so many different configurations. But typically we get more control options, and better visuals and audio. I have a PS3 too.
As Letros(and comment #8) demonstrates it's PC gamers attitudes that makes people not want to have a discussion about games with them because most of the time you can't unless it involves a PC. I'm sure they probably feel the same way about console gamers. I completely agree with what you are saying but for me, if I had to choose between gaming on a PC and not gaming.. I would not be gaming.. Just the way it is.. I work on PC's all day long and spend a great deal of time typing on them.. I just don't want my gaming to revolve around it as well.. Playing on a console provides a nice disconnect for me from the PC's I spend all day long fighting with..
I repair computers for a living... but I come home and hop right on mine quite contently. I guess it just depends on how you look at it. Truthfully speaking a console is just another computer. It's just it doesn't have an os. I know what you're talking about though. It's nice to mix it up.
I've been building, repairing, troubleshooting computers for just about anyone that knows me for years. I sit at a computer all day and I hate it. But when I come home the beast is waiting for me and I unwind from all my troubles in my comfy computer chair while i frag something. theres a difference between a work station and a gaming pc. If you put the time and effort into your pc . Then trust me you would pick pc over console any day.
who doesnt work on pcs all day long today or some part of the day atleast? Id stop gaming competely if it werent for the pc. Pc is the most versatile machine out there, i could be typing this post in the middle of a game, then alt+tab and be back in the game. heck pc is so versatile i can use the ps3 controller on the pc or the 360, i prefer to use the wireless ps3 controller when i am playing from the couch, with the pc hooked up to my 24inch monitor and 40inch tv. i stopped playing on consoles back in the snes days and id never go back to it.
too bad it won't look like that on consoles :C
No way thats possible LOL
I know your use to sh^t so anything looks good, as a ps3 owner this looks good although nothing like what we have been receiving graphically since last year. To bad your a noob who had to wait 5 years to be impressed by a game.
no way in hell that those are console builds its maybe A- DX11 PC or B- bullshots
The beta was amazing. I had no interest in the game and now its a must buy and my second most antecipated game. I hope people give this game attention cause no doubt it will put up a fight against MW2. And in my opinion, this will be the best game. Shame MW2 will still be the more popular.
Modern Warfare what? I am so excited for this game.
what's modern warfare?
I am not sure if this game is DX11 supported. AVP is. Not sure about this,
Already have the PC version pre-ordered. I've always loved the Battlefield series.
not a FPS player by any means (i play, i just suck) but i'm definitely buying this game... in hopes that i can forget the awful that was modern warfare 2
I don't like Bad Company 1's multiplayer so if the demo doesn't come with a multiplayer map, their is no way I'm buying the game. And if it does come with a multiplayer map I'll just play that, lol.
preordered on steam.
That does not seem like a console build, my bet is either prerendered or on max settings on PC.
