I don't care about the game but im happy it being shown on the PS3

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME2622d ago

That, minus the not caring about the game.

evrfighter12622d ago

lol warprincess is following bf3 more closely than me and I'm a 1942 day 1 player.

ZombieNinjaPanda2621d ago

You don't care about the game yet you care it about it being shown on the Ps3. You obviously care.

Lifendz2621d ago

Excited to see what the console footage will look like. Hoping they make this segment available on Hulu.

lil Titan2621d ago

hope they get rid of that random saving while your playing online

if you dont care then dont comment

NatureOfLogic2622d ago

That's what I've been saying to the BF fanboys who comment on MW3 articles.

Tank_Commander_E62622d ago

Oh but I do care about MW3 KingElixir so very, very much....very.

Canucks232622d ago

Then what does it matter to you what it's being shown on?

di0medes2622d ago

I've been wondering if you are mentally handicapped? If so, that's alright. I'm just curious.

ATiElite2622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

Good so you consolers can stop crying!!!!

I want my mommie, I want my BF3 console footage wah wah waaaaah! just kidding w/ u guys i'll be watching myself as well.

@ Warprincess: if you don't like BF3 then why waste OUR time with your post? Stop Hating!

Battlefield since 1942!

PhantomT14122621d ago

Well she obviously care, she expect it to suck just like Kotick, the "genius".

subtenko2621d ago

Jimmy likes the PS3 thats why they use the console alot B-)

ELite_Ghost2621d ago

yes they showed U3 footage a while ago too :D

Shackdaddy8362621d ago

You must obviously care since you're usually one of the first people to comment in every BF topic...

BlackKnight2621d ago

Warprincess, don't you mean you don't care because it is the best on PC but happy because the PS3 version will be shown because thats all you own (or seem to own) and are just an over-the-top faboy?

If you didn't care, you wouldn't post. All you care is that the most amazing looking game in the world right now on PC is going to be shown on your holy grail platform.

If you don't have all the platforms, stop acting like one is better than the other.

Im really hoping that it looks as good as the PC version, but i know thats really unlikely.

Shaman2622d ago

You mean console rendering DX11 features at 1080p with SRAA or 16xMSAA included?HIGHLY doubt that :P

It will proly look very very alike,only in much lower res and frame rate.

Jack-Dangerously2622d ago

That would probably be why he said "Im really hoping..." "...but i know thats really unlikely."

You are soooo cool for owning a gaming pc.

HardCover2621d ago

Who cares about being cool? We're talking hardware.

DICE haven't even built the PC that maxes out BF3. They run it on 1 GTX 580, but that's still far stronger than what the consoles have.

It's cool to know what your expensive console has inside of it in relation to what's on the market 5-6 years later.

SignifiedSix2621d ago

Lol owned. Nothing beats the pc. Hell, my 27 inch Imac would eat these consoles alive xD

trancefreak2621d ago

I dont think many people will be playing the pc version with those specs dude.

Battlefield will probably destroy my Gtx 570 also.

Motorola2622d ago

@Shaman I dont think he meant it like that LOL. Does BF3 even have 16xMSAA? I really dont know.

BlackKnight2621d ago (Edited 2621d ago )

Almost any game can. PC hardware can force AA on over 90% of games on PC. Nvidia currently has 32x.

And yes, I know the 32x setting is a mix of MSAA and CSAA, the point is you can force crazy levels of AA on practically any PC game.

trancefreak2621d ago

Woo there we are are talking a small marginal bracket of PC elitist here.

I would love to have a rig like that with a 3 panel monitor setup.

I can dream!

Agent-862622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

What you should be hoping for is that it looks better than BFBC2 or MW3 on consoles. Hoping for it to look as good as the PC version on 6 year old tech is really asking for a lot. DICE is doing their best and I'm sure it'll still look great on the consoles. I thought BFBC2 looked good on consoles (I played the beta on my PS3 since they had it as an exclusive at first). Of course, not as good as my PC version, but I thought it was still quite respectable. I imagine BF3 will be about the same.

PhantomT14122621d ago

"What you should be hoping for is that it looks better than BFBC2 or MW3 on consoles."

Won't be that difficult to be better than MW3 on consoles, since they optimize the sh*t out of it to make it run at 60 fps (which means sub-HD graphics).

I don't expect to see a huge difference between PC and consoles through trailers and web videos though. We'll see some effects gone, that's for sure, but the overall quality will be the same since we can only get 30 FPS vids on the web and codecs are compressing them.

Also, it'll be good to have some console footage because I think we'll see a brand new level since I hardly imagine they want us to compare with existing pc gameplay vids on the same level.

I sincerely hope it'll look beautiful on consoles. That'll be good for everyone. That'll mean multiplat devs can develop on PC to satisfy the techs of PC gamers while scaling just right to current-gen consoles.

BeastlyRig2622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

Since it 24 player It may look as close as possible to PC!

But nothing will beat a game that uses an engine that was built from the ground up for pc..

- http://bf3blog.com/wp-conte...

But I think it will look better than the 360 version.

look at killzone.. deferred rendering will do ps3 justice!

It will be good on all platforms.

WetN00dle692622d ago

We will see what happens. The KZ engine is quite frankly SHITE when compared to Frostbite 2.0. So all i can say is that we will see what happens.

Tank_Commander_E62622d ago

@WetNoodle69

Did you just bring up Killzone? If did then are you you nuts? I guarantee you BF3 MP or SP will not come close to gorgeousness of KZ3.

caboose322622d ago

@Tank_Commander_E6

Ewww, what?!?!?
I bought KZ3 not to long ago and I think the graphics are way over rated! The art style is great for the game but that's about it. Im sure this and Uncharted 3 will look better.

BlackKnight2621d ago

Games that use deferred rendering:

Crackdown 1&2
GTA4
KZ2/3
Red Dead Redemption
Halo: Reach
Crysis 2
BF3

These are the ones I know of for sure and off the top of my head.
Deferred rendering does not guarantee a great looking game, it depends on A LOT more than just that.

trancefreak2621d ago

I think guerilla games could make something special with pc specs in mind.

They amazed with the ps3 but its the ps3 now years later holding back.

I always here so much talk cough cough crytek that they are making the best graphical console game eva.

I thought the bad co series looked pretty phenomenal on ps3 except for the jaggies.

jack_burt0n2622d ago

Not gonna happen, but dice have been working some nice stuff with the spe's and learning tips from guerilla.

So could be a nice surprise, lets hope so, so ps3 fans can buy battlefield by the droves.

xCaptainAmazing2621d ago (Edited 2621d ago )

because DICE is better than Guerilla. I think they have guys smart enough to do the job. People think the Sony first party studios are the only ones smart enough to put a good looking game together on PS3. They are actually the only ones that really care because they don't have to create an engine that scales onto different kinds of hardware. Not really that impressive, but they've made some gorgeous games out of it, which is undeniable.

And they have full support from the hardware maker, Sony, damn big thing. Pretty much that and also that they have engines made for only one hardware, as you mentioned.

"because DICE is better than Guerilla. "

Personally, when talking about games they have made, I agree^^

Kleptic2621d ago

careful...

Game design and rendering technology are two totally different things...and NO ONE can argue that Guerilla is 'bad' at rendering tech...

Killzone 2 did plenty of things that no other title (shooter or otherwise) had done in 2009...and it has multiple tech features that other titles still haven't caught up with yet...the physics based animation system, the lighting design (its far more than just 'good lighting'; it took an entire development team to make just that...)...the storytelling (kidding) etc...

I'm not saying killzone 2 is anything close to BF3 singing on the right system...just saying Guerilla is definitely a serious studio when it comes to making video game renderers...sure they had a pot of cash and only had to worry about one platform...but there is stuff in killzone 2 that hasn't shown up yet on PC...let alone another Ps3 game...

death2smoochie2621d ago (Edited 2621d ago )

@Kleptic

What has KZ2 done in 2009 that no other shooter has done regarding tech?
I am not trying to flame so don't take it that way, but honestly, PC gaming has done what KZ2 has done in most cases well before it.

You mention lighting, yet KZ2/3 does not use HDR..it uses LDR and NOA32...
Most of the lighting in KZ2/3 is not in real time...its pre calculated.
No real dynamic global illumination.
Dynamic volumetric light beams and light shaft effects were all pre calculated. Not in real time.
No Subsurface scattering in real time. No Subsurface scattering period.
No destructible environments also.
Games like Crysis that came out in 2007 are far ahead then KZ2 in the tech department. Most of the features I mentioned above Crysis had been doing this in 2007 an KZ2 which came out in 2009 lacked.
Crytek also were the devs who invented SSAO.

"Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO) is a rendering technique for efficiently approximating the well-known computer graphics ambient occlusion effect in real time. It was used for the first time in a video game in the 2007 PC game Crysis made by Crytek"

Guerrilla are amazing developers but the tech they used was used well before KZ2 was released.
The rendering Frost Bite 2.0 engine is WAY ahead of the KZ2/3 engine. The Cryengine the same.

I'm going to go ahead and assume he was referring to console shooters...

qwertyz2622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

it will NEVER look as good as the pc version the ps3 is outdated with only 512 mb of ram. whoever thinks it will be possible using the power of teh cell should be shot(literally) lol. battlefield 3 will show console gamers how shitty their consoles truly are. I forgot EVEN bulletstorm maxed out does that lol rapes everything on consoles and doesn't even use the true power of pc. PC is FLAT OUT superior to consoles go out and build a pc you won't regret it. PC FTW!!!!

just_sayin2622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

Will you PC Fanboys give it a break ease up alittle off of DICE's nuts damn

RatchetandClank2622d ago

Did you ever stop to think that maybe some of us care more about how the game plays than worry about how good the damn thing looks.

StankyChicken2622d ago

@qwertyz... Thanks captain obvious, wanna point something out that we didn't know and we give a shit about?

Tank_Commander_E62622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

What about the 360 version? Same thing or worst? Which do you think will be the better of the two? Place your bets!

caboose322622d ago

Stop. You give us pc gamers a bad name.

MysticStrummer2621d ago

I once did my gaming on PC, then I switched back to console gaming and I don't regret it.

It only has to look "good enough".

I remember just a decade ago, the console version of a PC game generally looked like a complete butt-ugly turd, and not long before that, developers often wouldn't even bother trying. Thankfully those days are over, and consoles can at least render something pleasing to the eye.

I'm one of those people who might buy this game on all 3 platforms. I'm definitely going to tune in for this.

Kahvipannu2621d ago (Edited 2621d ago )

"I'm one of those people who might buy this game on all 3 platforms. I'm definitely going to tune in for this. "

I like the idea your supporting Dice with this decision, but really, for all 3?

"It only has to look "good enough".

Totally agree.

starchild2621d ago

But why hope for something that is impossible?

It's like saying "I hope these Twinkies help me lose weight, but I know that's really unlikely". It just comes off as an absurd statement.

Shaman was exactly right, the console version will probably look similar at a glance or on low quality videos, but it has no chance of objectively looking as good as the PC version.

callmedom942622d ago

Couldn't agree more. I really want to see how the game will look on my TV come October

Tripl3seis2622d ago

Well this is good hopefully it looks great I have confidence in dice.

death2smoochie2622d ago

I am sure it will look great on the PS3.
BFBC2 looked great on consoles considering what the game engine was doing...
Frost Bite 2.0 engine is much more advanced so it should look better than Frost Bite 1.0 easily.
And if that's the case, console gamers will be in for a nice treat

Kahvipannu2621d ago

I believe this too.

To me, BFBC2 is one of the most impressive games in visual department on consoles. It has so much going on all the time it's insane, also everything is topnotch, audio, overall graphics, visual atyle, gameplay, etc..

It's way under-raited.
