I won't believe it will look as good as PC...
This is not news. How does shit like this get approved.
Well I KNOW it won't look as good as PC version but I still want to see what it looks like.
They already showed pieces of the PS3 gameplay graphics in one of the trailer they released and it looks damn good. At first i thought that it was the PC version and then i saw an article which showed to us what most of us missed that it was indeed the PC and PS3 version showed. PS3 version: http://www.youtube.com/watc... @ 0:45 and 0:52 look at the bottom right side of the video which indicates which version is being showed :-)
To be fair, those were 1 second clips and a few frames, you really cant make any sort of judgments from that.
^^^^^ Thank You I've stressed this about an earlier. You can't judge of those snippets, they're like 4sec @the most.
Those screen shots are almost mere seconds to the point if you don't look hard enough, you miss it. You cannot tell the game fidelity based on that.
The console version is sure to have 1080p, Msaa, 3d support, dx11 & more!! What else would it have?
LAUGH MY ASS OFF I felt that your statement was so ridiculous that I had to write it out
@arjman he was obviously being sarcastic
Tesselation, 60fps, 32x anistropic filtering, motion-blur, ubersampling and even eyefinity support. yup 6 year old tech is mighy uber-pwnge! ps. loving the mobile n4g. kudos folks!
Counter sarcasm ftw... bitch
The game will still be beautiful no matter what it's on.
"Of course it will look as good!" Lol, no it won't. You put the producer on the spot on live TV and ask him if the the console versions will look as good as the PC version, what do you expect him to say?
Even if it had all the bells and whistles (which is doesnt), it would still be at 720p.
And 30 FPS, with little-to-no anti-aliasing. They also confirmed that the console versions won't have rendering features like fully dynamic lighting.
But it still looks the same, right? lol.
@pandamobile I can't think of too many games in general on consoles that have full dynamic lighting...then when you add in destruction...there is none. LOL
Lol What a stupid article.
look at all the depressed pc fans learning the truth
What r u talking about? The console versions are running on below the minimum requirements. The PC version doesn't use dx 9 hurp durp EDIT: you're right, PS3 uses openGL. My point still stands. The PC version's lowest requirements will still be above the consoles. BC2 forces AA on MINIMUM. Why would BF3 be any different?
ps3 doesnt have any dx idiot thats a microsoft deevelopment tool set
@waterboy PS3 uses OpenGL ES 2.0, which is very similar to DX9. PC has DX11 and OpenGL 4.1 at the moment, those two being similar as well. Saying the PS3 uses DX9 isn't all that inaccurate in the sense that OpenGL 2.0 use shader model 3.0 just like DX9 and so on. @Persistantthug The SPU's on the Cell are being heavily used for the deferred lighting in BF3. While KZ2/3 had a peak of 300 realtime lights on one level, the AVERAGE lights in a BF3 level is 3,000. Might not be able to afford MLAA with how intense the engine is, unless they sacrifice the lighting alot more on the PS3 and then give it MLAA.
Optimized Cell usage and MLAA says hi?
LOL, you crack me up sometimes!
"While the demo yesterday was on PC, a developer from DICE calmed fears that the consoles were inferior." Yes, The console versions will look just as good as the PC version. But PC version will sh*t all over both of 'em in terms of graphics & performance. /obvious
That's true. They won't even have as big maps as the PC version and graphics will obviously have to be dumbed down too. I think what he meant is that it will look really good still. At least 3x as good as MW3. ;)
This is a good point. People don't realize HOW FAR PCs are ahead. You can have BF3 not looking as awesome as PC, with lots of stuff missing, but still be one of the best looking console games. Watching BF3 on PC sometimes looks real, the tank scenes especially.
No, it will definitely NOT look as good on outdated hardware. They'll probably have to clarify this one. I still expect the console versions to look good, just nowhere near its PC counterpart.
looking at uncharted 3 i couldnt care less about how battlefield looks on pc cause with that game i know ps3s version could outmatch the pc version yes it wouldnt be 720p it would be 1080p but would look like mario for nes
Seriously? I'm not trying to troll you pal but ANY game on both platforms from a technical standpoint will ALWAYS be better on the PC. FACT. I certainly hope you're not comparing Uncharted 3 with BF3...doesn't make any sense. Uncharted 3 looks great, however if it were on PC it wouldn't be forced to run in 720P...not that it looks bad AT ALL...I'm just wondering where you got that ignorant statement from.
You my friend are an giant fanboy with little to no knowledge about anything pc gaming. PS3 version will look inferior to the pc version and thats just a fact, not fanboyism. Stop being so ignorant, it's making console fanboys look even worse.
Waterboy is N4G's resident Sony fanboy. Please forgive him. Jesus did. Oh and Waterboy...when Uncharted 3 has a fully destructible environment (thats not scripted) running ALL REAL TIME EFFECTS and ALL REAL TIME DYNAMIC LIGHTING THAT'S NOT PRE-BAKED AND PRE-RENDERED LIKE ALMOST ALL CONSOLE GAMES Including Uncharted 3, with high resolution textures throughout using real Anti-Aliasing an not using hacks like NAO32 and LDR and MLAA etc with map areas as large as BF3, then you can talk. Until then...pray for forgiveness.
I think the fact that they didn't show any console footage doesn't bode well for the game. When MW3 was shown at the MS presser everyone went wild, it was trending and people are all like "MW3 looks sick!" because they know it's running on a 360. So far all we've seen from BF3 is super high end P.C. footage that 1% of the population or less actually owns. I am a console gamer, EA failed to show me what I wanted to see.
Then wait for the console footage from the show floor. They have it running on every platform, you baby.
Actually, no they don't Panda. PC and PS3 Battlefield 3 Gameplay Station only. Sounds suspect even to me, and I'm NO WHERE the Cod Fanboy Raven is.
John Riccitello said on GT that they have it on all platforms at E3.
Maybe you wait for the OPEN-beta which will be on all platforms... It's a PC-game, ported to consoles, that's the reason PC-version gets the first spotlight.
Who cares... I have a good PC and battlefield is played best on PC so who cares about a dumbed down version on xbox 360 or PS3. Learn to switch and go buy a PC. If you are not happy go play Halo4 HaloHD and Halo 5-6-7 and COD -7-8-9-10 Will be buying this game for PC on 1080p 4x AA and 16x AF and play for years like pasts BF games. Stop complaining about console version just OPEN YOUR MIND Xbox360 and PS3 are 4 YEARS OLD and PC always had the longest and best multiplayer games. THATS IT GO BUY A PC instead of that wii u thing
PC fanboys the worst kind
Ok listen PC users, we are not trying to compete with graphics capable of PC, we know PC will look/run better, its common sense! What we consoles users are trying to get at is if the game will look AMAZING, on par or even better than current games on the CONSOLES. Will BF3 look great like Killzone 3, will it look better than Gears 3, Uncharted 2/3, Resistance 3, Halo Reach (on consoles) Will it just be a simple port like COD across each console or will it utilize each consoles capabilities to their fullest as if it were an exclusive?
How does a game that has been talked about for months and has a fall release date have ZERO console footage?! Fire the marketing department at EA/Dice. They've spent the past 2 months trash talking their competition, and that same competition beats them to the punch within a couple weeks of being announced.
Probably focusing on PC since BF has always been a PC exclusive until now (Bad Company is a separate game series). They are showing PC audience some love. I don't it is anything to do with worry of the console version.
There will be OPEN-beta for ALL platforms, so everybody will get theyr hands in this game before the final product. Also there was shown a littlebit PS3 version in EA-conference, only couple seconds, but looked good.
Maybe as the PC was lead on this, the console versions are not yet up to their best... and so Dice don't want to show it until it looks as good as it can! I would like to see some console footage as soon as we can though.
It won't compete with PC. But from what i've seen and read, they really seem to be pushing the PS3, fully using spu's for lighting,shaders,culling. etc. They port dx11 compute shaders to the spu's. I hope for PS3, it's 720p, either mlaa or msaa x2. If not then qaa i guess. So graphically PC - PS3 - 360.
As usual, the PC fanboyz are out in force with their usual rantings. No kidding the PC version will be better fools. Who gives a toss? Especially when one is only a console gamer, and has no interest in spending mega bucks on a PC gaming rig. We console gamers get at least 90% of the Battlefield 3 ** experience ** for a fraction of the money you PC gamers spend on your PRECIOUS. I stress ** experience ** because BF has always been about the experience rather than how pretty it looks, true HD or not, high frame rates, etc. Little boys with their toys. Oh, how they like to gloat. So insecure.
Liars, unless the console game comes with some add-on hardware it won't look as good as PC.
Pc, PS3, 360... Can't we form a team just this once in the fight against COD? We really shouldn't be fighting amongst ourselves. If they say it will be close graphically, it will be close. We ALL love BF. You shouldn't care how other people choose to play it. OT: Battlefield is an amazing franchise. I can't wait to see some extended console footage. :)
