I want to see this game so badly lol

King-Leonidas2412d ago

this should be pc and ps3 exclusive

Xfanboy2412d ago

But ps3 will hold back PC!!

wwm0nkey2412d ago

No it SHOULD be PC only, consoles will sadly be holding it back. PC is getting special support though so hopefully it wont be gimped.

AndrewRyan2411d ago

BFBC2 was gimped due to consoles. But this time they said they wouldn't gimp the PC experience which makes me a happy camper. And not a camper like actually camping in game... You know what nevermind, it just makes me happy.

gcolley2411d ago

You are lucky you even got BFBC2.

Pjuice2411d ago (Edited 2411d ago )

if it wasn't for pc the battlfield series wouldn't even have been made same with cod so whos lucky they got it, consoles i think.

Same here should be a great FPS...cant wait to
see a trailer...

lelo2play2412d ago

I hope they don't fu*k it up... by dumbing down the PC version because of the console version. They should make a different version for the PC.

Genecalypse2412d ago

I think thats exactly whats happening, Dx11 and all

DeathMetal14742412d ago

dumbing it down Pc gets special attention and a better newer engine than the consoles

Ducky2412d ago (Edited 2412d ago )

No need to worry.
PC will be different.
Devs said so themself.

...Does that count as a haiku?

hoops2412d ago

lelo2pay you nailed it perfectly.
I, like you have gotten tired this generation of PC games being screwed over because of the PS3 and Xbox360.

ll_UNDERSCORE_ll2412d ago

I agree 100%. Even though I spend 99% of gaming these days on the ps3, I would build a new PC just for a new BF3 . The only thing I would keep is my Hard drives and silverstone Temjin case. I been waiting on a reason to buy a EVGA/Intel combo, or ASUS/Intel combo for the past few years, but never found a kick start reason for a new build.
Im still running XP pro , so definitely that would get updraded to Wnd7.

Ares84PS32412d ago

Yet, I will still buy it for the PS3 and not for the PC.

Honestly my PS3 run Half-Life 2 better than my PC did so.

I guess we could say that "I hope they don't fuck it up by dumbing down the PS3 version because of the Xbox 360."

Look at what happend with FF13 for example.....

hoops2412d ago

The problem is multi-platform games for the most part run and look better on the Xbox360 than the PS3 because game developers do not want to spend the extra time and money to code properly for the PS3.

Sarcasm2412d ago

Is that the PITT? Wow I haven't seen that in years. I still have Issue #1 wrapped up and in pristine condition. Don't know if it's worth anything though.

Pjuice2408d ago

bc2 def wasn't the best port thats for sure, its the first time frostbite has ran on pc also so that might have alil to do with it.

Ultra Gamer2412d ago

I just recently built my first PC. I know the specs aren't out for BF3 but does anyone know if a Palit GTS 450 Sonic Platinum (1024MB GDDR5) will be good enough because that's what I put in my PC.

Ducky2412d ago

It'll be good enough to run the games.
Might not be able to max the game beyond 1080p but will definitely be playable while looking good...

... assuming you have a good quad-core CPU.

Ultra Gamer2412d ago

@FatOldMan I have an Intel Core i3-540.

Ducky2412d ago (Edited 2412d ago )

That i3 might become an issue since I believe that's a dual-core.
BF3 is being made to take advantage of quad-cores and hyper-threading, so the dual-core might be a bottleneck.

Still wouldn't be that big of an issue. Would still be playable unless if 64 players simulatenously run across your screen blowing up buildings together. :D

You'll be fine. ;)

Pjuice2411d ago (Edited 2411d ago )

should be able to run it atleast by no means maxed at 1080 or 1200 though, you might be able to use higher settings at lower resolutions im just going buy the bc2 frostbite engine though, btw i would not recommend that card for 40-50 more you could of gotten a 5850 i like nvidia and ati but that 5850 for 199 is a great deal. if you have gotten this within the 30 day id return if your a straight nvidia fan the 465 is only like 140 right now the galaxy version anyway

superrey192409d ago

My 3.0ghz core2duo kind of bottlenecked my gtx260 in Bad Company 2. People on forums with the same card and quad cores had significantly higher fps. I'm assuming the difference will be more noticeable in BF3. Hopefully I can get enough money to get the gtx 570 and a quad core cpu by the time this comes out...

ya i hope its two diff versions of the frostbite 2.0 engine cause if its not this vista/7 dx11 only feature is just a gimmick where they updated dx11 support and just dropped 9 that would be horrible.

JAM_GAM2410d ago

In what possible f*cking way does the console versions "dumb" down your precious and "superior" PC version? This is almost never the case. You guys usually get way more customization, modding capabilities, graphic/performance fidelity, server options, player count, etc etc... if anything we console owners get the inferior and ported versions... I just don't get this animosity towards console owners from PC owners, that have this superiority complex... like they are somehow the "true gamers"... stop acting like you are God's gift to earth. The only recent game that I can even think might make you feel this way (and by that, I mean have misdirected anger) is CoD MW2 (who even gives a f*ck about that game anyway?!) which was gimped because of the developer's/publisher' s choice/arrogant stubbornness, not because of the consoles themselves. So direct your anger towards them. By having BF3 as a multi-platform game, the devs are more willing to make the game great by putting a lot more funding/resources/man-power behind it's development because they are reasonably expecting a greater return profit from their investment... And of course the PC will have greater options and graphic/performance/server capabilities; it's DICE for christ-sakes. We all should start treating each other more equally... and stop with these misdirected animosities.

We better cross wieners just to be safe

Convas2412d ago

MariaHelFutura2412d ago (Edited 2412d ago )

Actually NO. You NEVER cross streams.

Rage_S902411d ago

I cant wait to see this. Seeing what they did with BFBC2 and knowing what BF series has been in the past...this game could be one to topple the Call of Duty hysteria.
