Here’s the footage shown on Jimmy Fallon tonight of Battlefield 3 for Playstation 3.
Looks really good for an off-screen alpha console build.
I didn't expect a miracle, major step up from Bad Company 2, we can't expect it to be on par with 2011 PC's. we got first look at knives lol, seems like knife is switched by triangle so it's not one button press, I hope they will change it
yes! knife fights confirmed!!!! btw i was expecting it to look horrible. Not as good as the pc version but good enough for the people that don't know any better.
It's alright looking. I was expecting it to look better because of everything they were saying, but this looks like a small step above Medal of Honor, and not even Bad Company 2 level. I hope it was an old demo though, and that it looks better upon release. Besides that, I know it will be a great game just because it's Battlefield, and Battlefield is always amazing. Still have high hopes for it.
looks nice not as nice as PC tho but looks really nice for a console game i gota say and equipable knife is a straight win that's for sure its been a long time since a game had the balls to do it actually i'll get it on PC
Finally a confirmed console version that looks good. Demo looks solid and people complaining about sub pc graphics need to relax. Get the pc version if you want it. The graphics are still better than the "other" game, which will bring on disagrees, but truth hurts sometime. And gameplay still looks like tons of fun! I wish Jimmy Gallon ACTUALLY knew how to play video games. It hurts to watch him make believe he's a real gamer.
Well, I thought it looked awesome. It's off-screen footage guys so you gotta take that into consideration. The animations looked great and the drop-off from the PC version is to be expected (again, why do some of you feel the need to state it doesn't look as good as the PC version is beyond me), but it's still a very pretty game. Definite day one purchase for me.
Agreed you don't like the way it looks buy it on PC if you have one that can handle it. As far as Jimmy Fallon being a real gamer he very well could be, believe me I know people who play a lot of video games even though by most "real" gamer standards they are terrible...it almost kills me watching my bro try to play an online game but he'll set their and play for hours even though he'll be getting destroyed. Can't wait for BF3!!!
I wonder if we get to run faster with the knife equipped.
are you serious with this off cam recording? lol better version here http://www.youtube.com/watc...
This looks great. i have this preordered and can't wait to get my hands on it. I didn't think DICE would mess this up, their previous Battlefields on console ran smooth and look good so I had confidence they'd make B3 even better...
I'm gonna be totally honest. This didn't look that great graphically, compared to the PC build. The PC version will obviously look better but i had no idea the console versions were that far behind in the visual department. When i saw the smoke effect on the car i thought it was pretty flat and ugly. This is obviously only a demo, but the game is only 4 months away from release so how much time they'll actually put in to polish the game is the real question. Hope they do a good job because console owners supported DICE just as much as PC gamers this gen, with Bad Company series. This is a game for PC sure, but lets hope those of us who still play on console and like that way better will get an equal treatment in graphical upgrade.
@ crXss Of course you do, "everyone knows you run faster with a knife." - FPS Doug.
get off PC dick, does it matter if it looks better on PC, NO you should be happy console players get to experience a real game rather than MW series console has been expose to from the past couple of years but all the comments i see people are saying the same stupid thing "doesnt look better than PC" "if you want a real experience buy the PC version" well being it was build from the ground up on PC i wouldnt be surprised if it did. and i thought PC gamers where suppose to be more mature than console smh
Everyone that is being honest is getting diasgreed like crazy.
We all saw the same demo segment a few months ago on a PC build and this demo on consoles is noticably weaker.
I'm sure I will get a ton of disagrees but I was surprised by how much this console demo DID NOT match the earlier demos and footage.
Keep your blinders on if you want but like BigC said, this game looks a hair better than last fall's MOH.
But graphics don't make games right???? See what I did there . . . . hahaha. Either way BF3 still is one of the best looking shooters especially considering the amount of damage in the game. Looking forward to it.
I'm getting it for my PS3 because my friends are there and my PC sucks, but there is a big difference... I did a couple screen captures from the PS3 and PC version and the textures are way different. Not to mention some missing elements. PC http://originalgamster.com/... PS3 http://originalgamster.com/...
alpha build? the game comes out in 4 months it can't be that far behind in development
Of course its farther. IDK if this is alpha build, but its possible its an old demo build and not up-to-date.
Let's face it, it's not on par with the PC footage we've seen and anyone who expected it to be is nuts. If anyone's disappointed they have their own expectations to blame. Get a mid range PC, you'll be fine.
the killzone 3 closed beta was alpha and the next month they had the beta build. I have faith in DICE
Actually I heard this specific gameplay was pre-alpha.
I_find_it_funny: Thanks for the HD vid. AA looks good, resolution looks like full 720p, textures look crisp, and framerate is solid. Can't ask for much more from the 5-year old PS3.
and destruction is there to some degree...the only thing I noticed definitely needing work was certain particle effects...muzzle flares from the guns looked a little 'sprite-like'...and the only glaring thing was the smoke effects from a burning car... more than acceptable imo...and actually better than I expected so far...they could release it in its current state and it would still easily trash 90% of console shooters...it already looks better than any CoD or BC2...
This is actually very good, considering that it's still alpha. I also didn't expect miracles like the PC version which was the lead platform. Anyway, good work DICE!
OMG! -all I can say is wow Bobby, if that's BF3 running on a PS3 then Modern Warfare 3 is in big trouble.... -Because that looked Amazing- Absolutely Amazing Day-One Purchase Guaranteed.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
The PS3 logo at the end of your post is a bit sad.
A bit sad? Very sad.
cheeky and boom how dare you speak ill of anything (and I mean anything) PS3 related? i fear for your safety
Yeah, I understand, I can see how it would be sad if you only own an Xbox 360... LoL -but if you own a PS3 like me, then that logo should just make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.. LoL .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
The saddest part, is that he has 10 agrees and 2 disagrees. And you guys have more disagrees. This site is like the Mos Eisleys of Video Game sites for PS3 fanboys.
lol Look at all the knee jerks attacking a PS3 fan for no reason other than the fact that he's a PS3 fan. He said nothing bad about any other console in his original post. You guys need to get some games to play or something. Oops... I guess that may be a sore point.
So its ok to have avatar images and screen names that ooze x-box marketing but to have a ps3 logo as a signature in your post is suddenely a crime? Come on guys the reason these video game wars wont die is because of reactions like this.. He didn't say ANYTHING nengative yet you all dog pile on hime as tho he just kicked bill gate's dog... Find a better use of your time and energy...
Looks pretty good already have the special edition pre ordered for ps3:
The smoke particle effects need a lot of work and look fairly amateurish. Otherwise, it looked good. Not great (one above good), but good is more than enough for a game that offers the level of destruction/involvement as BF3. I would probably play Jimmy Fallon's game of "Hide".
Like I said a day or two ago: it only has to look "good enough". And wow...it does. It's a big upgrade on BFBC2, that's for sure.
It ain't PC quality, obviously, but no one can complain. It's closer than I thought it would be, and assuming they maintain all of the destructive elements (and there's no reason to think they won't), then wow.
Looks Great, Well Not PC Good but definitely a Must buy.
I think it looks really good too.. Best looking shooter on ps3? Nope but I honestly could care less as long as the gameplay is top notch.... After my dissapointment with medal of honor and my growing weariness of the call of duty series I need a good shooter to fill the gap....
Closer than I thought to the PC version, impressed.
me too i didnt expect it to be better than PC but i really had better hopes than this BUT its an ALPHA build and i think it looks as good as BC2 which by any means didnt look bad AT ALL
Get real. As good? It's OBVIOUSLY way better than BC2.
BFBC2 has a certain "fuzziness" to it and is jaggy as hell. This looks WAY better (and I LOVE BFBC2).
Same im really impressed
only thing that popped out to me as different was when the guy got shot it seemed to be more of a spray in the PC version but on ps3 is was not nearly as fine. And the vehicles where in different places or removed.
Embed the video on n4g
Meh.. I'll be running it on my PC in 1080p and with my squad buddies in ventrilo day one 32v32 <3
Just curious, what are your specs? CPU, GPU, RAM, Cooling Solutions, PS, Motherboard, etc... I know if I was a PC gamer with a nice rig I would want to share the specs. EDIT: Below, I agree with the provoking part. Why comment on console footage if you don't care right?
I can tell you mine: Asus P55D Premium MB Asus MS236H 23.6" 1080p Monitor / Samsung 940BW widescreen 19" as secondary screen Intel Core i5 760 (2.8 Quad / 8mb cache @ 3.8Ghz watercooled). 2 x 2GB DDR3 1600Mhz 1 x 128GB SSD for O/S 1 x 250GB SATA 1 x 500GB SATA 1 x 80GB old pata drive EAH5870 1GB AMD VGA 8mb/1mb connectivity Razor Lycos backlight Keyboard / MS sidewinder Mouse Looking at the ps3 video at pre BC2 graphics i would prob try PC version first but would still prefer playing on 50" 1080plasma via xbox360.
Brian, don't worry. Anyone can play any came at 1080p with everything else turned to the lowest setting. I for one cannot wait for this game on PC, but I have this gut feeling to matter what I upgrade it will not be enough for MAX settings. Back to the console debate, looks great. I am impressed how close it is to the PC.
Sak500 Have you thought getting 1155 setup ,sandybridge i5 2500k nicer build not too over priced.
check my sig for specs
im gonna be playing this nice on my
amd 965 phenom II
4 gigs ddr3 ram 1600 mhz
5850 graphics card overclocked to 830/1200
Wonder what fps Ill get from my amd phenom 2 955be, ati 6870 and 4gb 1600mhz ram
I think some of you are going to be disappointed if you try to max this game out on those rigs. If BF2 was any indication, most people will have to kick the detail down a bit.
at frosty pants.
anything over 40 frames im cool with. and if the consoles are running it fine then the coding might be better than bf bad company 2
@hiredhelp Actually i built mine few months before the sandy bridge announcement and to fit 775socket meant water cooler on 1156 socket was nightmare enough for me. The GB water cooler i was using for last 4 years and they didn't have new waterblock/clamps for 1156 so had to improvise with bleeding fingers. So now will wait full generation for changing MB but might just change the card down the line.
My specs are over 9000.
I understand sak500 Ive just wasted over £350 in parts cos doingva 1366 didnt bother putting parts together till too late found my socket had bent pins seemed like was refurb hmm. So lost money on board had sell my i7 920do Got a asrock fatality p67 4gb corsair dominator gt Coolit vantage. Too affraid of proper water coo.ing incase pipe drips lol. I7 2600k Just in middle of thinking on a vga 570 or a 480, or back to ati. My case coolermaster haf x
Why did you feel it was necessary to comment? Do you walk into a MacDonald's and ask for a Big Mac? Your comment was completely relevant and definitely thought provoking.
Well, I for one DO go into McDonald's and order a Big Mac. LMAO! I'm sorry but you fail sir. Nice try though... .Edit... Gee I wonder who that first disagree was from? LOL even harder! . OT: The one thing that we can ALL agree on.... October can't come soon enough!
to say: "Do you walk into a McDonald's and ask for a Whopper?" It's okay. We forgive you.
So am i, oh the glory ;3
good for you!!!
Meh. No kidding the PC is the better version. Afterall, it has more than 8 x the Ram, newer CPUs, GPUs, MBs etc. But remember that a Ps3 costs less than a decent Graphics card ... let alone an entire gaming rig. The Console version is still good enough, even with the pitiful 12 vs 12.
I think a lot of people may feel let down after being so used to what it looks like on PC. IMO it looks great though! Other than resolution dubbed down, a six year old console is keeping up with a high end 2011 PC! Got to love the PS3 :)
I agree, was hoping console versions to be at least some step up from BC2 but this looks even less than that quality. Here's hoping the final build on both consoles would be more polished and higher quality than BC2.
God, you're annoying.
very small field of view compared to PC version.
