...The Battlefield series would've died years ago then.

BFBCS is amusing. There's more 360 players than PC/PS3 players during the night-time it seems. (But more PC players during the day)
If those stats are to be trusted, there's more PC players than PS3 players. Though I don't know if it counts each soldier or each account.

Though being an exclusive wouldn't do much. Not sure what anyone gains by having a game restricted to one platform. Just suit each game to each platform and you're good.

Without PC players, the Battlefield series would be nothing. So what makes you think that it needs to be put on consoles in order to survive?

I wonder how the 360 crowed is feeling right about now after reading that little bit of info direct from a DICE dev. Hrrmm. Huh? Wut?

Hey it's only fair, I mean after all you guys did get COD:BlOps right? RDR. So this time we get BF3 ...one of the best and also prettiest FPS around. I call that even. :D

Wow KZ3 and BF3, SOCOM 4, Resistance 3 all in the same year? PS3 FTW. lulz

Day 1 no question. DICE I love you!! :D

(I think it's cute that you're trying to make this into a PC vs. PS3 battle but this is really between the 360 and the PS3 and so far we're kicking your asses!)

The word 'Lead' doesnt mean 'Better'.

I think everyone has completely misread the statement, and are using it in the wrong context.

I'm pretty sure whats ment by the statement is the PS3 is being worked on before the 360. Since porting from PC to PS3 is apprently difficult, i'd be working on the PS3 first aswell.

In the end verdict i bet my life on the 360 being the better of the console versions. But we are only talking a difference in light and shading.

Both games will be identical... so stop clingy to any news that says "PS3 version is better than..." because your just kidding yourselves.

Bring up battlefield on consoles and all the PC elitists get their panties in a bunch.

I swore they were talking about the console versions, we all know the PC version is the main focus for DICE, thats exactly why the article isnt about PC....

i swear PC fanboys are the worst..... with their constant need to call out and degrade every console title.

i mean read some of the comments, insecure much?

@ rainstorm81

If you spent a small fortune to get an elite PC to validate your E-wang..... wouldnt you try every way possible to justify it?

Part of me can relate though, I did drop $599 on a PS3. Now I cant stand that the weaker console (360) has developers creating games for the lowest denominator.
bozebo  +   1262d ago
lol epic comment and a lot of well deserved agrees
bozebo  +   1262d ago
@Marked has the right idea.

But anyway, no. The reason PC is better is because of dedicated servers, modding & mouse+kbd.

Graphics are really a non-factor to me, in the end I just want to play the game properly.

Anyway, PC gaming is in fact the cheapest as long as you buy smart (ie. don't buy from a nooby high-street retailer because they sell you an overkill CPU and an incapable graphics card for twice the price it should be).

Since sandy bridge and the latest gpus came out it is possible to play at 1080p with >60fps relatively cheaply.

There are a few key reasons why PC gaming is cheaper:
The games cost less because the publisher/developer doesn't have to pay platform licesnse fees - and you have a massive range of original franchises at really low prices for the same reason.
No xbox live payment (which is how microsoft make money from the xbox, think about it).
A wider and more competitive component market (no overpriced controllers of shoddy quality that need replaced, or proprietary adaptors simply to force people to pay more, like play and charge or the 360 wireless thing).
Think about how much a normal home computer costs, what is the price difference between that and a gaming one? Yes, less than the price of a console (though at the current stage in the console product lifecycle they are not expensive).

Sure, a lot of people spend more on PC gaming than they really need to for no real extra benefit. The real issue is that you have to get a custom built one (yourself or a friend etc.) otherwise you get ripped off.

I am not saying there is anything wrong with console gaming, of course I own consoles too and they certainly have their merits. People just have some annoying misconceptions about PC gaming.

Thank you for that comment Seanscythe. The things people say now is just amazing. Wake up peeps.

On-topic: I didn't really see any huge difference on either console between Battlefield BC 1 or 2 so I really don't think there will be any significant difference with Battlefield 3.

Rainstorm81 is right on the money. I've come to the conclusion PC fanboys are the worst. If you even say a console game looks good they are quick to come in and say "PC always looks better..." on and on for no reason. They really have a complex. PC will of course have the better graphics compared to consoles but playing with mouse/KB is a real pain except for RTS games and I don't like sitting at my desk more than I have to.

Fanboys in general are insecure, Rainstorm.

Check the Battlefield forums. The PS3 fanboys are blaming the 360 for "holding the PS3 back again". They seem to think that the 360 is the reason that the PS3 version of BF3 will only go up to 24 players.

Then they name MAG as an example of PS3 being able to do 256 players. They do not understand that MAG and BF3 are two different games, running on two different engines.
Mr_Objective_  +   1262d ago
Lets be honest. Both versions will look very similar, run similar and play similar while PC will shine the brightest. If you get off on pointing out the slight differences then thats your problem. Just enjoy the game.

Re: I didn't really see any huge difference on either console between Battlefield BC 1 or 2 so I really don't think there will be any significant difference with Battlefield 3.

You know that BF3 is running on FB2 a complete rewrite of the FB engine (evolutionary). Dice was proud to "compete with the vistas of UC2" in BC2.

Let the devs see what they come up. Dice seems to like a challenge. BC1 & 2 were basically same engines on both PS3 and 360 (PS3 port), looks like they go a little bit more aggressively with BF3. I like that, the SPUs can really be utilized to use FB2's features. I would want to see a difference between PS3 and 360. If it would be just the technical perspective, I would think there will be a difference (dynamic lightning, physics and AI using SPUs can boost the engine a lot! read the postmortem for KZ3..) - look at DAII full MLAA (or sort) in the PS3 version.

Maybe multiplatform developers are getting to push the PS3 now like Sony's devs did in the past. It's about time I'd say.

The loyal fanbase is on PC and since its a primarily a multiplayer experience piracy will not be a problem. besides quality > quantity.

might not sell as much the 1st month as consoles but i bet it will be closer than ppl think in that 1st month, though over the next 1-2 years bf3 on pc will outsell both consoles, pc games keep selling well over time and usually get better cause hardware gets better and older hardware gets allot cheaper so more and more ppl can play at higher settings and at a better frames and pc gamers get to play against better players of course :-) the pace is so much faster on pc cause everyone can aim better, even magnetism, auto aim, snapping, acceleration and friction scripts for console aiming can't help the controller keep up with the mouse and keyboard in an fps, devs do try there best to make sure you think your aiming with that controller though :-)

@ Major Why? Does antialising, DX11effects and better textures make the game more fun? Does it make its gameplay better or with more replay value? In the singleplayer campaign does antialising make the story, better or interesting characters? If not then to me at least the PC version wont be superior in any way to console versions. To me what will definitly make the PC version better is K/M and mod support.

"Developers like DICE are only selling inferior products to consoles"

er, bfbc2 on pc was an obvious console port. Still far better on PC of course.

I think they were testing the waters to see if they would get incredible console sales, they did ok but not enough to focus entirely on consoles. Most of the annoying bugs were on all platforms anyway.

It is odd though, battlefield 3 will sell the same numbers on pc and the same numbers on consoles no matter how good/bad it is - so they really have no reason to bother. Of course, I hope they do try to make it amazing (they might need to hire more competent programmers though, bc2 was the buggest game I have ever played)

I'll wait until a see a Digital Foundry comparison then i'll shout for joy. I heard comments like these before with the actual product being completely different from what the dev's stated. However, Battlefield Bad Company 2 does look better on the PS3 with the Xbox360 version suffering from a texture dithering effect thats completely absent in the PS3 version. Well, i wouldn't say its better because both versions have its faults. Dice is one of the best developers around but hopefully they focus on getting both versions running good like they did before with BFBC2. However, things are different this time around with PC being the lead but the only draw back with that is that i hope that they give the PS3 version special treatment being that the system's architecture is almost completely different, so a straight port wouldn't be enough.

Here is the best site for comparisons; BF:BC2
http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

So, plus and minus points for both versions of the game, but clearly the visual drawbacks in the Xbox 360 version are the more noticeable overall.

Bad Company 2 360 has an ever-so-slightly higher average frame-rate, and a small, but noticeable advantage in terms of screen-tear

Conclusion: PS3 better graphics and as for the Xbox360 version? A slightly better average frame-rate and screen tear.

Personally though Battlefield Bad Company 2 runs great on my PS3 so i'm happy it got the slightly better graphics.

I want them to do what Guerilla did. They could push much more polys and detail in KZ3 vs. 2.

If Dice can manage the same with BF3 vs. BC2 this is all I need (i give a rats ass if the PC is 10x better - won't get it...so spare me the replies...and yourself a bubble. thx).

From a pure potential standpoint doubling what BC2 did is possible. That's what I want to see. And, yes with full a MLAA implementation (no AA, LOL).

In the clips above, lowest frame-rate was 25FPS on PS3, and 26FPS on 360: the difference essentially unnoticeable when averages are at 29.4FPS and 29.8FPS respectively.

So there goes the Xbox360 better performance in BFBC2 just merely .4 fps lol

It never fails to make me laugh when they start listing the components of their gaming rig.

Exactly, MrObjective. we argue over tiny differences picked up by comparison sites. sites who HAVE to find differences and blow them out of all proportion just to justify their own existence-is it right that tearing and FPS drops detected only by programs are used to choose between versions? No, if you couldn't pick it without programs and running the games side by side, if you couldn't tell just playing the damn game it isn't a difference worth noticing, is it?

On consoles multiplats are aiming to be as similar as possible and BF3 will be no different-the differences will be teeny and not easy to spot even WITH the two versions running side by side. after all ths time the only game I really needed to have on 360(I prefer to game on my PS3 and DS3)because there was a game breaking issue with the PS3 port was TOB. Even Bayonetta was preferable-to me-on PS3 with my favourite controller. After the patch the loads were OK and the slowdown was never the issue they made it out to be-and that's meant to have been this awful, mess of a port but had it not been pointed out and blown up few people would have cared and it never spoiled my enjoyment one bit so where's the issue with the other billion games without these supposed problems?

The PC version will look the best and have the usual slew of options and mods we expect along with a good community and cheaper price but even saying that the two console versions will both still look good and have the advantages all console games have for those who prefer console gaming and not having to think about their rig too much. Everyone will get a great gamep-stop worrying and giving LoT and DF a reason to exist when all they do is propel a console war that doesn't really exist. And neither should those sites. Feeble.

Most shooters I play are on my pc though, with the exception of BulletStorm, so this time would be no different.

Panda I own both those 2 games but bought battlefield 2 late like 2 years ago.

Wish I would got it sooner.

Damn really excited for this shitz.

Im buying a console and pc version depending on my locale in ma house.

starchild  +   1262d ago
There is no way I could play this game anywhere but the PC. For the people that only own consoles I hope it turns out great, but I'm not expecting it to hold a candle to the PC version.

The Bad Company games were really not that impressive on the consoles. They were plagued with screen tearing and lots of jaggies. Hopefully they will understand that performance is more important than graphical features and will dial down the graphics to a point that the consoles can actually handle it.

I'm sure all of teh PS3 fanboys on here are very happy about this, lol

Xbox fanboys.. carm down, The game still runs perfectly fine on your platform of choice, I can assure you. You won't even notice a difference, actually.

Only a certain blog type of site called DigitalFoundry can show some "differences" between each version.. So, just play the game like normal once you have it & don't read their face-off article.

Having said that, There are multi-platform owners like myself who want the best looking & performing console version of a multi-platform title.. so I will need to see this article as soon as it's available :)

Sure, but, in the end, the differences between the console versions won't be very noticeable at all, seeing as how dice is a respected and experienced developer.

Bad company 2 and battlefield 1943 on consoles are fine examples of dice's excellent track record.

In the end, PC version will dominate 360/PS3 versions, and that, will be hugely noticeable.

True, I'm sure it will look great on all platforms. That said, we've heard this from developers before (Ghostbusters devs, Crytek, etc) and when the game is finally completed it turns out not to be the case.
Criminal  +   1261d ago
If developers tried their best to get the most out of each platform, everyone would be satisfied. But, I guess because of limited resources each studio picks a lead platform and port their games to others. Hopefully, Battlefield 3 is being developed to the strengths of each platform, I think EA and Dice have the resources for this one.
guigsy  +   1262d ago
I'm not worried, I have faith in DICE to bring it up to scratch before the game ships. At the end of the day the 360 will probably entertain the game's biggest audience of the 3 platforms, so I doubt that they're going to let it lag behind the other versions.

The PS3 version of BF BC 2 was actually slightly better looking than the 360 version (I played both) so this is good news for PS3 owners.
Big_Dom  +   1262d ago
Did you count the pixels and identify which ones was slightly more more smooth or something? They both look identical like the vast majority of the games on both systems. Fucking makes me laugh the way people argue like both machines have a clear and defining edge over the other, when in reality, even if the PS3 is slightly more powerful in processing power (the 360 has the better GPU) it makes minimal fucking difference between the two. The PC compared to the consoles today, on the otherhand...different league there.

The only time is when I stop and try to find the difference
MysticStrummer  +   1262d ago
PC gamers always come back from the dead toward the end of a console generation. It's like death, taxes, and a yearly Call of Duty... inevitable. The next set of consoles will show up and they will get quiet again for awhile because new consoles perform like a fairly high end gaming rig when they launch, and they do it for much less money. You're right about the non-differences between most multiplats. There are a few on both consoles that look appreciably better than the other console, but the vast majority look so close as to make no real difference. Exclusives have been the measuring stick since 2600 vs Intellivision, yet somehow someone convinced a certain group that multiplats are where it's at now. When you compare exclusives it's not tough to see why multiplats have become the focus for them though.

BLAKHOODe  +   1262d ago
Medal Of Honor and Battlefield games seem to favor the PS3 - while a game like Call Of Duty seems to favor the Xbox. Much like Mortal Kombat is favoring the PS3 by including Kratos and Bulletstorm favored the Xbox by including the Gears 3 beta.

I'll definitely be getting Battlefield 3 for the PS3.
Aquateenkid  +   1262d ago

FrigidDARKNESS  +   1262d ago
When the game is finish the 360 will be the better version than the ps3 because the architecture is identical to the lead platform PC.
radphil  +   1262d ago
The only format it's identical with is the coding library, and even then you have to change a few variables around.

I don't get how comments on here from people that only play on consoles, to go ecstatic and go "it'll look better on this system because X reason", on something that was ONLY SHOWN on PC atm.

It's like what the hell?

I put over 100 hours into BFBC2's multiplayer on the Xbox before getting rid of the game - then a few months ago, I got a good deal on the PS3 version and have been playing it off and on since. They essentially look and feel identical. So I doubt there will be much difference between the console versions of BF3. I'll still pick it up for PS3, though.
Mustang300C2012  +   1262d ago
Here we go again with this BS. Didn't some of you fanboys learn your lesson from the Ghostbusters game? Or the recent Crysis arguement with qoutes?
humbleopinion  +   1262d ago
Yeah, it seems that people already forgot the
"At the moment, we're getting slightly more performance from PS3 compared to 360" that Crytek made about a year ago:
http://www.computerandvideo...
And now we see (at least from the beta code) that the game runs on a lower resolution on the PS3. Is that how "more performance" is gained?

Amazing how people miss the actual point coming from the tweet: "a bit early to make fair comparisons between the two". Lets judge it when it's done.
Ju  +   1261d ago
No multiplatform game maxed out the PS3 so far. Heck, not even the best exclusives did. The only game really pushing the envelope is KZ3 (ATM). The most advanced game today on the PS3 is KZ3 (think what you want. Read the dev report about the game. They give a pretty detailed insight how and what they did).

Crysis2 is certainly not there. If Crytek is committed to focus on the platform implementation rather than the tool chain, they might maybe sometimes get to that point.

On the other hand Dice has released quite some high end titles on consoles and with BC2 has released a high class game on both 360 and PS3 - with no drawbacks on either one.

If Dice takes this seriously and really pushes more an more modules to the SPUs like most of Sony studios do, they can improve on that by a factor two compared to BC2. They would be the first multiplatform studio doing that. EA needs to back it up. But it will not look the same on 360 and PS3 if they do. If they want to compete (visually) against KZ3, inFamous2, Resistance3 or UC3...they better step it up. Certainly possible.

I want to see how the 360 can hold up to that. So far I don't believe it will. But Dice might surprise us all. If it will be close it will be the best 360 game anyway.

And BTW: KZ3 runs 32 players - something which most high class MP shooters don't. Maybe it won't do 64, 32 is still great number.

Crytek said this about Crysis 2 on PS3, but IGN begged to differ: http://au.ps3.ign.com/artic...

That said, EA have been really great at pushing 'parity with ports', and if BC2 is anything to go by I don't think either 360 or PS3 gamers will have anything to worry about in terms of quality compromise.
MrBeatdown  +   1262d ago
Meh. If I need someone to do an in depth technical analysis to point out the issues, if any, which I'm sure will be the case here, they probably aren't worth caring about to begin with.

If a game reviewer can notice a difference just by playing both version, without the need for all the technical crap, then I'll pay attention. Until then, I'll just keep buying games based on console preference.

all multiplaforms looks better on the pc , but most of gamers play on console because it offers more great games then the pc and using the xonsole is much easier thenthe pc , developers don't want to make games like uncharted on the pc , they should have done it a long time ago but it seems that they don't care , if all the games went to the pc i'll make a good pc but pc games right now isn't good enouph to make me want to make a good pc...

anyway , both xbox360 and ps3 versions will be the saaaaaaaaaaaame , i dunno why people comparing the same game !! the only different things are the light and the bugs , grow up and stop acting like a fanboy , it's the same gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa me !! don't fight for stupid things !

edit : ''
I complain about them because I barely see any Xbox 360 trolls on this website. I see more Sony fanboys then 360 on this site.''

i see both , xbox360 fanboys don't come here alot because they don't have games and i don't blame them , just get over yourself and stop acting like a fanboy and have fun ,

im done now , im going to play then sleep then do some homework then go protest out side to make the government and king ape and his son and all his greed family that don't care about us go out from our country !! ....... (this is all because of obama and his government , it's obvious that our king don't care about the people{us} , the relationship between obama and the king is all about the money , i hate this world ,almost all the kings are like this !!! they only want oil and money ! )

LOL why anybody needs a 360 is beyond me. Obviously a PC or PS3 is the way to go. Can't wait to play the superior version. It's the same with Crysis 2. IGN (M$ butt buddies) saw Crysis 2 ps3 was more superior than the 360 version and decided to downpla it. Then later we see actual gameplay footage which runs flawlessly.

Can't wait for the superior BF3 console version on ps3.
Jaws007  +   1262d ago
agreed.

Plus, EA games generally run better on PS3. 360 version of BFBC2 I had constant bugs, errors and lag (playable/bearable) but as compared to the PS3 ver. Both had the leaderboard/stat error and default guns for a week.
