GS Writes: "Something caught my eye while watching the E3 2011 Frostbite 2 features trailer. In the lower right hand corner it said PC in-game footage, but at around the 45 second mark it clearly says PS3 in-game footage as seen here"
I didn't think that was possible on the PS3. Dice have raised the incredibly high bar even higher!
hey DICE - not sure if serious I mean this looks great, though you cant tell a lot out of two brief moments, I believe the fact alone that they put it there is saying a lot.
im sorry, after playing both 360 and ps3 versions of bad company AND seeing the word "cinematic" in the ps3 footage then, i am going to reserve judgement until i see IN-GAME. imo nothing to see here....... yet!!
they didnt put any 360 footage in there... what could that mean?
what's with these articles that keep over dramatizing the "power of the Ps3"? just put up "screen shots of BF3". we all know the ps3 is a powerful piece of proprietary hardware, but we dont need to hear it over and over again. it's like a fanboy justification thing. is it some sort of complex? /rant
You get a ton more hits with it, stupid thing, but works like a charm..
I think it has to do with the fact that we haven't seen the PS3s full power and yet the PS3 still puts out amazing graphics for a console.It's exciting that we haven't seen it's true limits yet and whats not to appreciate about that?
dont get me wrong, we see it with the 360 and PC articles as well. but not to the extent of ps3 articles. and @ above: its 6 year old tech in the ps3. it puts out good looking games, but personally i dont see it producing dramatically better looking games as it does right now.
BF3 is gonna look as good as the Youtube videos look, on consoles. Look at the PC Crysis 2, BFBC2 youtube videos, They look exactly the same as the console versions. IDK why people are worried about how the console version is gonna look. Just look at the videos!
@Headquarters As a owner of both versions of BC2, I respectfully disagree. The PS3 and Xbox 360 version of BC2 look far worse then the PC version. The textures look soft and blurry, the aliasing is awful and the bloom is absolutely out of control on the desert maps. I can dial up the anisotropic filtering/texture quality, the anti aliasing and shut off the bloom. Not to mention run it in native 1920*1080, at 60fps on the PC version. Since when did youtube video's count for seeing/playing stuff?
Ravenor, no fricking sh!t it looks worse than the pc version because the PC is not limited in hardware as the 360 and PS3 is. Jesus Christ are people retarded now or something? Everyone knows that if you make your PC powerful enough it can look better than 360 and PS3 maxed out. Just go play your damn Witcher 2 or whatever the hell you are playing now. -We are watching
PS3 is an open source platform not proprietary get your information straight before posting!
Frostbite 2 is a complete new engine, though. It has nothing to do with BC2. This version is also heavily optimized through utilizing the SPUs (deferred rendering). I would expect a bigger gap between 360 and PS3 this time - and it will support top end GPUs in PCs (direct compute support in the deferred renderer). @Above: "PS3 is an open source platform not proprietary get your information straight before posting!" What?
These aren't gameplay images, they look like cut scenes of anything. Just sayin. It still looks amazing thou,
To all my wonderful disagrees, where was the gameplay in those 2scences? The tree's moving or the Guy raising his hand?????? Don't get wrong, I love my ps3 and battlefield just as everyone else doe's. And see it taking down the giant COD. But snippets aren't gameplay, those snippets were all of 4secs.
In-game footage doesn't mean game play. A cut scene is still considered in game footage.
@DERKADER in game footage means its rendered using the game engine, not prerendered cgi
the series of batlefield games deserve more respect of COD gamers...
I don't think that it's necessarily a question of respect. Although both are first person shooters, they aren't necessarily the same type of game. I was griping to my friend (who is a HUGE BF fan) that we only got to see a tank gameplay demo at the EA event. He responded that that was because BF is a vehicle based combat game. While I don't necessarily agree with him completely, I get his point. BF and COD are simply different animals that share the FPS distinction. COD is an arcadey, fast-paced fragfest where BF is more deliberate and tactical. That doesn't mean that either game can't have moments where it is similar to the other, but in general, they aren't clones. There's room in this world for both games. Sure they are in competition, but no more than any other two games with similar elements.
Looks great can't wait for the game to come out ps3 pulls it off again looks as good as the pc version
Looks good but wont run and look as good as the PC version.
B00M, Depending on your rig of course. The console versions will be static when it comes to performance, while PC is very variable. I could have two 560Ti's and a i7 2600k getting over 100 frames per second on this game with settings on high. (Guessing obviously, haven't tried that). Whereas a single GTX 260 and a Core 2 Duo won't run it so well. My friend bought a 500 computer that can't run Portal 2 better than the console versions. It was a pre loaded Dell desktop. Custom is definitely the way you want to go for the best performance to dollar ratio.
If Bulldozer doesn't live up to expectation, then Sandy Bridge + Asus 580 Matrix, here I come!
I built a PC for $850 18 months ago and could run portal maxed at 1080p with 60fps. I don't think I will fare as well with Battlefield 3. I would like to see it running on PS3. It would be sweet if EA did a deal like Portal 2 where you buy the PS3 version and get the PC version free...doubt it though since it seems they will vary in content more than Portal did between the 2 platforms (ie 64 vs 24 online).
Having to do your own rig way you like it. It is costly but worth it. Soo many options in games when comes to pc. I love my ps3 dont get me wrong but we in a new age we still cant map out own buttons on a pad. Like we can map on a keyboard for any game. One day maybe console have a pci card slot we can have true AA custome settings shadows texturs ect.
On PC, It's going to look even better! :P /obvious
Maybe this is the first PS3 multiplatform game that is a really significant upgrade over the 360 version. That would explain why they are not showing the 360 version at the show.
You think this would be the first time it's happened?
"its 6 year old tech in the ps3. it puts out good looking games, but personally i dont see it producing dramatically better looking games as it does right now." That is completely FALSE. The PS3 is NOT even 5 years old yet let alone 6. Somebody needs to learn to count.
and someone needs to learn about research and development. good try though. whats worse is you have 5 agrees. blinders, ON!!
I did & i got disagrees months ago from other users for saying it could be done now the jokes on those fools that call me stupid & who disagreed with me all those months.
holy shit i hope it's true! edit: it's not fake, I just watched the trailer again and saw it. around the 00:48 mark and 00:57 mark it shows ps3 footage. great spot gamesheep! don't know how people missed that :D
I saw it go from PC to PS3 in game footage. I thought it was all PC footage the at first, lol. This will look good on consoles too. However, how does DICE make a engine that looks better than Crytek's?
By using resources well rather than wasting large portions of it on having an excessive amount of objects that eat resources like crazy (aka lots of bent metal of which lots was unique) This is a great way to waste resources. Personally I think Crytek should have focused less on such things, and made the game smoother for consoles, And have DX11 out the door on release. The end product would have looked superior to what we currently have across any of its available platforms
DICE developer Johan Andersson (@repi on Twitter) CONFIRMS that those few seconds are indeed PS3 footage! http://twitter.com/#!/repi/...
how the hell does the writer know this? this article is pure BS.
On the bottom right it will switch from PC to PS3 footage every now and then.
I thought that too. The author said at the 45 second mark, he is wrong, at the 45 second mark it still says PC in game footage. forward to about 50 second mark, and look at the bottom right, it says PS3 in game footage.
Yeah the scene where all the cars are packed together was PS3 footage and so was the part with the bald dude. Damn does it look nice!
seriously can't wait for this now!
All trailers are touched up and it is probably a cut scene. Gameplay tells all
Thats all gameplay. All of the trailers you have seen so far for BF3 are ALL IN GAMEPLAY. Not pre rendered trailers using the game engine LIKE ALMOST ALL GAMES SHOWN TODAY. But GAMEPLAY. Dice even said this: This trailer is ALL GAMEPLAY
DICE is TELLING you it's in-game footage. Are you saying they're lying? How many times has a developer expressly and overtly LABELED something as in-game footage, and it didn't turn out to be the case?
No mercy anymore, bubs down to everyone who doesn't read the damn article but decides to comment as if they know it all anyway.
Well if it's anything like BC2, it will be way better on PS3 than the xbox version. The xbox version dumbed down so many graphics and textures in the game, it was a blurry and dark mess so it can run at an acceptable fps. Anyway get the PC version.
No it wasn't http://www.videogameszone.d... 360 version had pretty much identical textures and less jaggies too. Besides this game is just gonna be a masterpiece on PC Edit: Well thats pretty sad if I'm honest, let me guess you just ran down to your local Gamestop and asked them which version sold better?
No it was totally dumbed down. Considering I have all 3 versions and fired up PS3 and XBOX side by side. The xbox trees are totally different, fog of war is dark.. ton other texture issues.
A good sign that the PS3 version is not gonna suck.
It looks good but its real hard to tell what it looks like because the picture is all choppy. Best to wait for a official PS3 video of this game. I`m personally getting this for PC first then i will get it for PS3 when amazon has it on sale.
Nice find by the author. I'll be combing over that trailer for a while. Has anyone seen any other footage that could be from the console versions of the game?
I'd like to know, too. It supposedly was/is on the PS3 on the floor. Any footage of that anywhere?
Be honest who saw a difference between tha PC n PS3 footage.This is proof that 64 players cross platform multiplayer could happen. I'm starting to think DICE just wanted to give tha PC players something to brag about.If DICE would have made this happen this would have been tha final nail in CoD coffin.
If they put 64 players in the console versions they would have to sacrifice even more. There is only so much bandwidth and memory these consoles have with that interactive destructible environment. Not to mention the game using almost all real time effects for the console version while the PC version use ALL.
u never played Warhawk/MAG/Resistance? Dont think the PS3 has problems in that department
@thehitman And have you seen how those games look compared to BF3? 360 has 50 players in Frontlines Fuel of War, that doesn't mean every game can handle 50 players. Having a game that looks like BF3 on our old ass consoles with 64 players isn't going to work well.
What do you mean sacrifice more? They announced BF3 for PS3 was shipping with BF 1943 on the same disc. Could they not just require an install for 64 players?
Socom4? Say what you will, but it is one of the best looking shooters on the PS3 (on UC2 level) and it runs 64 players.
Why is it proof that consoles can do 64 player multiplayer? The PS3 footage was for half a second of the whole video. It didnt show anything about 64 player multiplayer.
Well, it's obvious consoles can't do same resolution, fps, or AA than PC can (Dice sayed this too), but this proves to me that console versions will still look superb! Also I'm not sure you know much what sertain things take, since this don't proof anything to 64 players. It's more like proof that they won't have that, since the game will look that good..
Looks good but I'll wait for more info on the ps3 version. I wouldnt be suprised if it looked slighty inferior to the PC version.
yea..again i'll wait to make my final judgement.
"Slightly inferior to the PC version". Oh dear....
I don't know why people thought bf3 would look the same as bc2 considering the NEW engine DICE is using. I def spotted the difference, mainly the foliage and cars, but it still looks stunning on consoles. Just think, maybe they're keeping it a surprise for console owners because of how good it looks comparatively speaking to other fps console games...
Sweet. I'm looking forward to this, but after i'm done with Modern War shooters. I'm guessing this will be the pinnacle. After though i'm exchanging my life for Dust 514.
If PS3 can make graphics like Killzone 3, there's no doubt it can handle BF3.
Scripted pipeshooter compared to dynamic huge battlefields which take insane ammount of processing power and memory. Sorry, bad example. BF3 is waaaay more bigger thing in technical aspect than KZ3 is. Tought it's obvious PS3 can run BF3, it's coming out for it^^ But to compare it to KZ3 as technical point of view... no.
Only thing PCs beat the PS3 on is frames and resolution PS3 hands down has more processing power then your average gaming computer.
