@XG247: It's official, Battlefield 3 will only be demo'd to the world on the Playstation 3 and PC platforms.
EA is saying "**** you" to Xbox 360 for their CoD love affair
Lol am I missing something? Where are the articles saying "XBox 360 only demo'd on ME3, MW3, Ghost Recon, etc" Jesus this "war" is getting ridiculous...
They know that 360 gamers only care about Halo and COD. Can't wait to see what they show at Sony's conference.
"EA is saying "**** you" to Xbox 360 for their CoD love affair" Or more realistically: EA is tapping what will be the lesser tapped userbase for Modern Warfare style FPS, which is being left out (for a time) from content.
EA is saying "**** you" to Xbox 360 But yet the Xbox 360 fan base bought alot more copies of Battlefield than the PS3 fan base. Man the PS3 fanboys now a days, welcome to N4G. Look at the disagrees fly in!
whoever wrote this must feel dumb because they only demoed the PC version lol
BF3 vs MW3....The PS3 has the win on this one.
just watched it it was on PC and it was E P I C open BETA 25 Oct release date EA had a great E3 next up Ubisoft
If I recall correctly, Bad company 1 and 2 both sold better on 360 than it did on PS3.
I can't wait to see the console version though. PC looks amazing!
I just don't get it how Wenis gets disagrees by telling you facts. You get disagree on this site if you say a tiny little thing that is in some way against Sony. Unbelievable site.
Gota say, B3 looks so much more interesting and fresh to play than COD looked at that conference. You start watching B3 videos, you watch them until they end, COD gameplay trailers are just filled with random explosions and helicopters crashing, not engaging at all.
haaaaaaaaahaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaa very true
not surprised... Activision in Love with MS... EA in love with PS3
I find this hilarious. Were it reversed, and they were showing only 360 and PC, you ps3 guys would be going crazy. It's the other way around though, so it's all good! Hypocrisy at it's finest. Why anyone would want to play this game on a console is beyond me. Up to 64 players on PC with full scale maps, whereas console is 24 max and scaled down maps. Keep in mind that if you wish to play smaller matches with scaled maps, you can also do that on the PC version, so that argument is invalid. I'll stick to using my PS3 for the great exclusives (dear god i want Uncharted 3 so bad), and my PC and 360 for everything else.
they did that for "consoles" cause they are trying to steal away the cod fans that was what the lower player count and smaller maps is for
@waterboy Are you saying they're only doing 24 players because they want to steal the CoD players? It's because the console's hardware and network can't handle that many people. It physically impossible to have that many people on the consoles without the game slowing down. It has nothing to do with trying to steal a demographic.
Maybe people don't have cash to spare on the ultra high PC requirements that it will undoubtedly need.
@ shoveface I don't see people going crazy that MW3 was shown on 360 so no, PS3 only owners would not have complained like crazy.
Agreed with guigsy, Battlefield 3 would cost me $900 on PC. Besides the 24 player cap is not set in stone just yet.
@guigsy It won't. They said if you could run BC2, you could run this game on PC. Console fanboys always think that it costs thousands of dollars to play on a PC. That's a load of BS. If you have half a brain, you can build a PC yourself and it'll last you for years. And when you do need to upgrade, you don't have to do everything. You can do just the video card or whatnot. Yes, it may cost a little bit more to play on a PC but it's not as bad as many people claim it is. That extra money is worth it IMO considering the game looks better and you have a mouse and keyboard to play it with.
@DeadRed No it won't. Please get your facts straight about the PC. The only way it'll cost you that much is if you buy a PC pre-built. I could build a high end PC for around $500- and that's all new parts. Considering I would transfer a bunch of stuff from my old PC, it would cost less. I'm not going to lie and say it costs just as little as a console, but IMO, it's worth the couple hundred extra considering i get a M+KB, can use the PC for internet and everything else, and usually looks better.
@veni A high end pc for $500 you say lol ide like to see that and remember you said all new parts not ones from on old pc so show how your gonna manage to make a $500 pc that high end list the parts and source thanks Ide like the motherboard, the power supply, the case, the ram 8gig min thanks and the graphics card also a dvd drive because not everyone can dl a game lets see you manage that with $500
What likely happened is Activision demanded that MS not allow EA to show Battlefield on a 360 at E3.
"whoever wrote this must feel dumb because they only demoed the PC version lol" Actually you must be feeling dumb because E3 has NOT even started yet. Battlefield 3 could be shown at the PS3 show tonight or they could show it on a PS3 tommorrow when E3 actually starts. E3 doesn't not actually even start until Tuesday. All these conferences today are Pre E3 conferences.
sorry to bust the authors ignorant bubble, but miss print!! Ha Ha, it's being demo'd all day on all 3. and, it looks pretty damned incredible on easch one.
And? Excuse my ignorance, but why is this 'news'. I have yet to see articles on MW3 only being demo'd on 360, or ME3 for the matter :/
because M$ is on COD's tip
You could say the same for Sony and BF3 if you so wished. Troll.
Yes. And I hope so. :)
Sounds like someone is on a company's tip as well.
I expect Sony to do some sort of exclusive DLC deal with EA for Battlefield.
My thoughts exactly :)
Doubt it. With all the effort they are putting into the PC version (lead platform, designed with PC in mind) I doubt they would just screw PC players over by giving PS3 exclusive DLC.
i think Jac6al meant something along the lines of a PC/PS3 exclusive dlc deal.
Microsoft is doing it with CoD, It would be smart for Sony to do the same.
Because halfway through the demo they would have to change discs.
lol..that was funny
or the controller will go dead...
damn 360 controllers needing batteries!
RANDOM KINECT QTE! RANDOM KINECT QTE!
'EPIC WIN COMMENT' LMAO
LMAO!! Great comment.
so mw3 = 360 and bf3 = ps3 in terms on the console FPS top dogs, lets see if bf3 gets times exclusive dlc for PS3 to make it even ;)
Not gonna happen my friend...
on my comment, aww shit it did happen ;)
Sorry to tell you this but getting BF1943 doesn't count as exclusive DLC, it counts as bundling another game that I already have with the damn game. Your delusional if you think that a $10 game on PSN is really gonna disuade people from buying this on PC or 360.
Ah, they just can't it running on the 360. LOL
bf3 = pc
Well they won't be beating COD then lol
COD's for kids
Lol but it sure as hell will play better.
and it runs better on the ps3!!! na naa... :)
I love ps3 as much as the strongest fanboy, heck I have two ps3's. But enough with the flame inciting. on topic: can't wait! intense looking smoke.
And it runs best on PC, na na na naaaa.
They announce Move support for campaign and exclusive DLC for the PS3. BF3=PS3, MW3=360. We all know which franchise produces better games....
Interesting... why's that then? Instead of buying this game for my 360 like I do with almost all the top multiplatform shooters.. I'll be getting BF3 for my new Alienware M15x I bought recently. i7 740QM 6.00GB RAM 460m GTX 1.5GB (overclocked) :D
That is hardly even good...hope you don't think that setup will max out BF3.
Of course not lol.. but it will run it way better than my PS3 or 360 ever will :)
BF3 already blows away COD in terms of multiplayer, they just need to add a bit more features, and focus on making a great singleplayer. If they do that, Battlefield will be THE FPS of 2011.
the pc version is the only one i want to see anyway, i would just feel bad for the 360 and ps3 version, sputtering there at 24 frames per second, in sub-hd, all jaggies, nasty flickering shadows and pop-in.... ...looking towards the pc version shining like a supernova in pure 1080p briliiance, 16x anti aliasing making for butter smooth edges, 60 beautiful frames per second dripping liquid smooth across the screen, draw distances as far as a natural horizon, glowing radiant HDR lighting and realistic soft shadows dancing to and fro magically.... yeah....i just want to see the pc version
youve already seen it its old news to me
Both Franchises sell better on 360 ... im just saying
Well that's just stupid who the hell is interested in seeing the inferior Ps3 version.
So far, Dice is one of the view (if not the only one?) pushing the PS3 with that game. We'll see how that turns out. But what they have presented at the GDC competes with top level exclusive games (detailed description of their deferred renderer). PS3 is ahead of 360. LOL. You guy's get the port. ;)
They should show it on PC.
Don't tell me they are afraid of MW3???? I thought EA/Dice would go head-on with MW3, which I would applaud, but if this is some sort of 'evasion' tactic ... how weak. PS3 and PC guys might be pleased, I see it as a sign of weakness:)
these pc fans are incredible, even if the pc version is superior, its not like the game is a ps3 exclusive game so its not anything special to brag on as a pc fan, knowing a multiplatform game can never truly use ps3, sonys press conference will shut you all up though
