So far DICE has shown tremendous-looking Battlefield 3 running exclusively on PC. How will it look when it makes the leap to console? "What we're showing on PC might look better than on console," said DICE executive producer Patrick Bach.
am pretty sure the game itself will kick ass, no matter which platform its on.
Time will tell. The graphics obviously look superb so hopefully the gameplay is there also.
It's Battlefield. The gameplay will be there.
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.
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)
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.
"What we're showing on PC might look better than on console," Wow what a shocker! lol
But even more grey! http://www.computerandvideo... http://www.computerandvideo... I hope they add more color.
Most new games have 360 controller support out-of-the-box.
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 check it out lights coordinated to prodigy http://www.youtube.com/watc... one of my advanced levels utilizing the post processing chain and lighting heavily. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
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.
# 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.
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.
New COD ppl October is comming. 3 years in a row now.
@cooperdnizzzle 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
@Rybakov "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.
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..
Honestly IMO I don't think anything looks better than The Last Guardian. I hope that releases this year.
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
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 :(
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!
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.
You said gears take 3rd place just to please the xbox fanboys when it does not even reach the top 5.
lol yeah! KZ3 wipes the floor with it to bth
And you said that just to please your Sony overlords. Gears is not THE best looking console game, but name 5 that look better.
@Kweitstorm 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) MW2 unreal tournament 3(PC) metal gear solid 4
@theonlylolking 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.
Crysis 2 says hello. Curently on both consoles. Oops.
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.
@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.
because gears 3 got released already, fanboy logic is such a fail
I'll be happy as long as nobody gives best graphics to Crysis 2, that game is a grainy mess.
WOW all i have to say about that pic is...RPG 12 O'CLOCK!!!
well it should be a great game on all platforms, most games like this are quite a bit better on pc... no shocker.
defo no shocker kevnb. all depends whats going on under your home pc's hood.
Agreed... I've started going with some games on PC just for a different feel
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: http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... 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...
"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.
Can't tell if you're being sarcastic, since that was easily a true statement.
LOL. Must be it then...ha ha ha. Just the facts. Now that IS an sarcastic statement.
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.
I can't wait for the whining because it doesn't look as good as Uncharted 3 on consoles and it doesn't have the player count of other games.
u havent seen the console version yet.
Some losers will petition for having 64 people in MP on consoles guaranteed and threaten to return the game otherwise.
haven't been disappointed by Dice yet so no worries here
well i was disappointed in BFBC1 and 2 but i think that came down to only have 4 person parties and not being able to group up very easily in the same room with 2 groups of 4 . but BC are nowhere even on the level of BF1942,Vietnam,2,2142
Hmm yeah thats true,But overall gameplay wise I didn't have many complaints,if any
This and Batman are going to kick ass graphically this year on PC.
Yeah i still know few people who playing bc2 on pc and im pretty sure more people going to play battle field 3 on pc.
How much of a difference are we gonna see between the PC and Console versions?
Try reading the article.
Hitman1187 LOL The higher resolution, the higher framerate, the anti-aliasing, the motion blur, stuff like that And a nice video card to boot.
As long as consoles have more than 24 players i'll be happy.
Not going to happen. Console player count is 24 and it's won't change.
MAG - 128 Players
Resistance 2 - 64 i think
So it is possible on PS3, i'm just not sure about 360. I'd like 30v30 or something along those lines in BF3.
Heres a nice analogy for the player count situation: PC BF3= Giant juicy burger full of meat. PS3/XBOX BF3 (with same size maps but 24 players)= "Wheres the meat in this thing!?" PS3/XBOX BF3 (Smaller maps, less players)= "What the hell is this, theres nothing to it!"
I don't think 64 is possible on PS3 in BF3 without any major graphical drawbacks. It'd be cool if they released a what-if video of some sort, just showing what it would look like if 64 player count were on consoles ^^
Buyin it on 360 to play with my amigos and im buyin a copy for my newly built PC, just for the spectacle...i dont play games on my PC, but my new baby could run this no sweat...
I knew it. I said that the video they showed was on the PC and wouldn't look nearly as good on consoles. But nobody believed me and gave me disagrees saying that the console version would either be on par and even some saying it was running on the 360. But people will probably give me disagrees for this comment too for no apparent reason. lol
No reason for any console gamer to buy this one. BF3 is meant to be played on PC, Period. They are making a console version because they KNOW console gamers will eat it up and ask for more no matter how dumbed down the console versions will be. BF3 on console will be just an upgraded version of BC2.
I don't get why they can't do anti-aliasing etc on consoles when I've seen great aliasing, motion blur etc on 360 and PS3 exclusive games. Sounds like excuses. I just hope its a good product because I don't have the luxury of having a gaming PC because I'm a Mac user. And having all 3 systems plus handhelds, I don't have the time or money for a gaming PC, especially for just one game. DICE, don't let me down. BF3 is the only FPS I've ever genuinely looked forward to aside from Killzone 2 and 3.
They didn't say that they can't, it just won't be of the same quality as the PC, which makes sense and obvious. But all the BF games always looked great to me, so I don't see this being a big deal.
Aslong as BF3 looks amazing and plays well on the PS3/360, I don't think there will be a problem; because its obvious that high end PCs will produce higher quality visuals, etc.
You are forgetting it's not just the higher graphics but the higher player count and the larger maps.
well, they are only being honest, its no secret that the console are going to take a slight hit in looks and performance, but for what they are, I think they do a damn good job and showcasing graphical games.
