am pretty sure the game itself will kick ass, no matter which platform its on.

plb2208d ago

Time will tell. The graphics obviously look superb so hopefully the gameplay is there also.

KwietStorm2208d ago

It's Battlefield. The gameplay will be there.

NewMonday2208d ago

Time for me to get a decent graphics card, b3 is just one of many pc lead games coming out, I always go wher the games are.

My only problim is i'm not comfortable with the mous and keyboard , I wish devs make control mapping to consol like controllers an option , they should take logtech as a standard, installing patches dosnt always work for me.

goosepoose2208d ago

I cant wait to see the ps3 version. I just hope it does not follow the traditional muliplatform route.

And i really hope that show it on the ps3 first, cause usually everything is demoed on the 360. That usually implies that the ps3 version is not the one they trying to sell, since it might give off the wrong impression (concerning their ability to develop, graphics etc)

starchild2208d ago

I'm sure the gameplay will be there. I have great confidence in that regard based on DICE's previous games.

What he is saying is that most people will be impressed because it will look better than other console games, but some people will inevitably be disappointed because it doesn't look as good as the PC version.

Well, of course it won't look as good as the PC version. I think most gamers are tech-savvy enough to understand that.

I couldn't imagine playing BF3 on anything but the PC personally, but I sincerely hope console players get a good experience as well.

frostyhat1232208d ago

"What we're showing on PC might look better than on console," Wow what a shocker! lol

TheIneffableBob2208d ago

Most new games have 360 controller support out-of-the-box.

Theonetheonly2208d ago

If I can do this with unreal then DICE can make some magnificent awesomeness

I have made some stuff using unreal UDK modding is one of the awesome features to gaming on pc

Why you posting your work here? Looks good just a bit off topic.

"What we're showing on PC might look better than on console..."

I'm sorry... Did he just say "MIGHT"?

What EA and Dice have done is no different than a company showing CGI game play and try to mislead their way through the year, especially with E3 coming up and then drop an inferior product at the end, ask for full price and laugh at the console gamers.

It's just idiotic to call devs out saying your game is the best with the best engine and everyone else is treading water and then have the audacity to claim it will look no worse than any other game out there?

I'm sure it will look fine but Dice just seems full of contradictions. Maybe seeing Crysis 2 and the rumor that Crytek is going to show a game in Kingdoms they have said will impress at E3 have put a limp in that bravado of theirs. iD has started the Rage Hype machine up. Gears 3 will be a force at E3. Forza 4 scared Ea into releasing Shift2 now instead of trying to go head to head with that monster in the fall, something they did in the past. COD has been suspiciously quiet, TOO quiet.

Big surprises coming at E3.

cooperdnizzle2208d ago (Edited 2208d ago )

# 1 They never show anything on COD. This early in the year!

#2 Rage is exactly what you said. A hype machine.

#3 I will guarantee that BF3 will be the best looking game, If you have the PC to run it. I think it will look okay on consoles. But not as good as game such as God of War 3 Killzone 3 Uncharted 3.

Therealspy032208d ago (Edited 2208d ago )

they have to be quiet about a new COD this early in the year because they still have to peddle a bunch of over-priced map packs.

Bear_Grylls2208d ago

New COD ppl October is comming.

3 years in a row now.

Rybakov2208d ago


i disagree with 1 & 2

1 because they have over flooded marketing with call of duty in game pics and info from december of the previous year...this year call of duty has no chance and activision is only living off cod so thats there only big e3 announcement

2 anything done by ID is amazing quality

Breadisgood2208d ago


"this year call of duty has no chance"

What world are you living in? Sure the problems with Infinity Ward and whatnot could affect the sales, but it's still likely to outsell everything else.

SuperM2207d ago

So your saying PC isnt a valid games platform and that showing PC footage is the same as showing CGI? BF3 is the sequal to BF2. A game made primarily for the PC with a crappy console spinoff. You should be happy you are getting the full BF3 on consoles this time, not whine that they are showing PC footage. Comparing it to showing CGI is just retarded

well i guess if it works on the xbox it will work on the ps3. i dont know if it is easier for them to develope like that, but i did read a while back ps3 was the lead console at the moment. if the ps3 has move and sharpshooter support then im game for the ps3 version. if not then the 360 i guess

of course PC will have best graphics this year!
- http://www.battlefield3chea...

But.. Ps3 owners still have Uncharted 3 which will be the best console graphics this year!

Gears 3 takes 3rd place!

Everything makes sense like this
graphics wise PC>PS3>360..

plb2208d ago

Honestly IMO I don't think anything looks better than The Last Guardian. I hope that releases this year.

joydestroy2208d ago

meh, i think the last part of your statement needs more clarification

PC multiplats usually look the best
PC exclusives pretty much wipe the floor with any console game

PS3 exclusives>360 exclusives

and it can go either way when comparing console multiplats between PS3/360

slavish32208d ago

oh fanboy its not so black and white. Pc is king and ps3vs 360 is a fair fight. Gears could easliy be king this year and so could uc3. don't right of any unless you are a mindless fanboy that likes to be sodimized by M$ or sony :(

cooperdnizzle2208d ago

I have played gears of war 3. The game looks a lot like gears of war 2. And yea the unreal engineer is so old i don't think it can compete with all the new stuff coming out! Graphics wise. I will say that gears or war is one of my favorite games. The multilayer is amazing!

slavish32208d ago

yeah you haven't played the finish product and i don't think the beta is out so stfu. I don't just believe some random barrel boy who says he has some exclusive magic connection.

theonlylolking2208d ago

You said gears take 3rd place just to please the xbox fanboys when it does not even reach the top 5.

BeastlyRig2208d ago

lol yeah! KZ3 wipes the floor with it to bth

KwietStorm2208d ago

And you said that just to please your Sony overlords. Gears is not THE best looking console game, but name 5 that look better.

theonlylolking2208d ago (Edited 2208d ago )


5 games that have better graphics than gears from 2005 to 2011(not in order)

Crysis 1
crysis 2(consoles and PC)
killzone 2
killzone 3
god of war 3
I named 5 games easily.

Here are five more
Uncharted 2
metro 2033(Pc)
unreal tournament 3(PC)
metal gear solid 4

bacano2208d ago


What a nice troll. Crysis is for PC, so it doesn't count. I agree with GOW3. It IS the best looking console game.

KZ3... mm OK. But... KZ2 and Crysis 2 better than gears 3??!! C' mon, fanboys.

Big_Dom2208d ago

Crysis 2 says hello. Curently on both consoles. Oops.

lee_ten2208d ago

what in the world does this have to do with battlefield 3? no one's caring about the gameplay but the GRAPHICS. i'm sorry but gameplay and graphics go together.

MysticStrummer2208d ago (Edited 2208d ago )

@Big_Dom - Not sure what your point is. There are lots of multiplats on both consoles. The question is about best graphics. C2 is only in the conversation because suddenly resolution, AA, textures, frame rate, and animations aren't as important to the X-Crowd as they are when comparing multiplats to each other.

darkziosj2208d ago

because gears 3 got released already, fanboy logic is such a fail

gypsygib2208d ago

I'll be happy as long as nobody gives best graphics to Crysis 2, that game is a grainy mess.

lil Titan2207d ago

WOW all i have to say about that pic is...RPG 12 O'CLOCK!!!

kevnb2208d ago

well it should be a great game on all platforms, most games like this are quite a bit better on pc... no shocker.

hiredhelp2208d ago

defo no shocker kevnb.
all depends whats going on under your home pc's hood.

TomInc2207d ago

Agreed... I've started going with some games on PC just for a different feel

MGRogue20172208d ago (Edited 2208d ago )

Don't know if I'll get the game for my Xbox 360 or my PlayStation 3..

I've heard it runs better on PS3 'cause they're using the CELL's SPEs for teh deferred rendering.. or something like that.

And, *most* (not all of 'em do) multi-platform titles run best on Xbox 360.. Proof of that can be seen here:

So yeah, Might have to wait for the likes of Digital Foundry to get their hands on both versions of the game & write up their usual technical "face-off" article about it, see what's up

Right now, My decision is to get the game for Xbox 360 'cause that's the platform I buy all mah' online multi-player games for.. as everyone knows that Xbox Live has a much larger active online community so...

Ju2208d ago

"as everyone knows that Xbox Live has a much larger active online community so..."

See, I guess I missed that memo...not everybody knows. I don't for example.

KwietStorm2208d ago

Can't tell if you're being sarcastic, since that was easily a true statement.

Ju2208d ago

LOL. Must be it then...ha ha ha.

Just the facts.

Now that IS an sarcastic statement.

gypsygib2208d ago (Edited 2208d ago )

Trust me, people have no problem finding games on PSN. I can still find full matches on BFBC2 on PSN.

And didn't BFBC2 only sell a bit more on 360 than on PS3 - so really what difference does the size of the online community make, if it even is bigger.
