Now this is what we call true effort and length devs are willing to pursue ... to provide best sound experience to their fanbase.

BF BC 2 still holds the crown for best sound in any FPS. If you don't agree you haven't played it lately. It's sick. Still.

I concur. So epic

The bass drop at 3:45 in the video is EPIC

I've often wondered why so many awesome games have mediocre sound.
I have a VERY nice 7.1 setup, so this is important to me.

I personally don't like the Bad Company series of games very much, but the attention to audio in those games is second to none.

If the Call of Duty series had the same attention to audio I would probably never leave the house. lol

the sound in BF-BC2 is awesome, i agree. dice and danger close up'd it in MoH tho. MoH just built on what bfbc2 already had going for it, and both are great examples in sound design for a military shooter. cant wait to experience the battles in BF3

i agree. BC games has the best sound in gaming today. hearing that sound of a rocket launcher explosion is what gets me every time.

Don't see why it wouldn't.

It won't, unfortunately.

Ah, Awesome.. This guy goes into so much detail, He knows exactly what his doing.

Plus, He worked on Bad Company 2's sound design as well, so They definately got the right guy for the job, again. :)

and on Bad Company 1 :)

I think he's been with DICE since BF 1942 :)

This game will look, play and sound orders of magnitudes better than KZ3. I've just recently looked deeper into their new Frostbite 2.0 engine and they plan on using all of the PS3's six SPU's.

This game is going to be mental on every platform.

First off why bring in KZ3? It's by no means a realistic war FPS. Second off, the only game that may compete with this in terms of sound is Socom 4. The past Socom games have been known to be very realistic in sound and gameplay. Just do a little research and you will see.
ULTIMATE_REVENGE  +   1647d ago
Because this site is filled with Sony loyalists and they insist that a multiplatform game can't look better than an exclusive game.

Well I'm sorry to say this but this one will ;)
GamerSciz  +   1647d ago

I don't recall anyone in this thread saying KZ3 looks and sounds better then BF3. Perhaps because they are nothing alike other then being an FPS. KZ3 has good graphics but its the art direction that allows it do so. BF3 is going for more realism in a real environment. There's no reason to compare because you can't. Socom 4 is the closest comparison to BF3 but it's a 3rd person shooter so again can't compare gameplay but maybe sound. Although BF3 Frostbite 2.0 engine is to-date one of the best physically.

"SPU-based Deferred Shading in Battlefield 3 for Playstation 3, by Christina Coffin (DICE)
This session presents a detailed programmer oriented overview of our SPU based shading system implemented in DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine and how it enables more visually rich environments in Battlefield 3 and better performance over traditional GPU-only based renderers."

It looks as though they are really taking full advantage of what the PS3 has to offer this time 'round. We'll have to wait & see. :)

I'll believe that when I see it.

Remember Crytek?
GamerSciz  +   1647d ago
Keep in mind DICE confirmed that the PC is the primary platform. However they also said (like Crytek) they don't like doing ports so they build each platform type different to cater to the machine it will be played on. We all know PC will look best but consoles will probably look damn good too.

first stop been a fanboy
its cool to say that the game looks better then KILLZONE 3 because in the gameplay trailer it did
im a huge KILLZONE fan.
lets just hope it looks like that on the ps3 or to a KILLZONE 3 level of quality, i'm more exited about the nextgen tech then the graphics, better special effects and details to immerse the players, something that this day only KILLZONE 2 and 3 have and im glad B3 will have!!!

its annoying to attack someone as a troll because they give their point of view.
he is not a troll, trolls are easy to spot and he is not.

What's Battlefiled 3? Is it a game about combat secretaries?
lefty burns  +   1647d ago
This guy has an awesome job. Judging from how bfbc2 sounded I would guess he is one of the best doing it.
kanetheking  +   1647d ago

News flash..This is not the only game that has quality sound!!!
WhiteNoise  +   1647d ago
I love how they are not trying to emulate some michael bay-esque B.S

"Games is games" he said, it's good that some developers still respect different mediums for what they are.

Fu<king books are even written dumbed down with movie adaptations in mind.
