Confirmed: No 1080p For Battlefield 3 On Consoles, PS3 Footage Is Latest Build

Yesterday it seems as if the entire gaming world was laser-focused on Battlefield 3, as the game’s console footage got its debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon two nights ago, and news immediately erupted that there were some console gamers who were disappointed with the showing, mainly because it didn’t look quite as good as the PC footage DICE had been sporting since the game’s unveiling. The developer swiftly responded, stating the obvious that no one should expect console games to look better than the version of a high-end PC. And now we’re getting even more confirmation that the PC version will indeed be the superior one. (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

1080p...can someone tell if there is any game Native 1080p on consoles(and yes I do mean 1920 x 1080, not some stretched out screen)

Just saying, this title "no 1080p" should go without saying, especially with the visual's, scale and destruction

High rated games are sub HD (under 720p) like CoD, Halo, etc...

Natively, very few games render at 1080p both on PS3 and X360. Some game do 1080p but are mostly donwladable titles that require less resources from the machine allowing 1080p.

did somebody ACTUALLY think that BF3 on consoles will run at 1080p?? anybody with a right mind knows that it's basically IMPOSSIBLE!
WhittO  +   1538d ago
It's not all about resolution, Killzone isn't 1080p but has really good looking high-res textures still!

Designing exclusive for a console lets you pull out visual tricks & specific extras they each have to keep the game looking/feeling amazing while still being able to run on a lower spec.. Uncharted 2 is a great example of that.

I think games specifically designed for a console look MUCH better than a generic multiplat game built for PC that can only look good on a high-spec & expensive machine.

I was shocked to find that most games this gen didn't run at 1080p! When I got my TV, I noticed that switching would tell me what it was running.

The majority of the 360 games I played ran at 720p, while the majority of the Ps3 games I played ran at 720p as well.

I thought something was wrong with my TV, because it can display at 1080p! But playing bluray movies shows up at 1080p!

I just downloaded Wipeout HD and played it once, but didn't look to see what it runs at.

Just checked, and indeed, Wipeout HD does run at 1080p!
gaffyh  +   1538d ago
Very few games do, but it's almost pointless on a big screen, because 720p will look fine unless you're sitting very close to your big screen TV. I'd rather have 720p with no framerate issues than 1080p any day, Wipeout HD does look good, but it doesn't have to render too much on screen at once, so it never slows down. Plus it dynamically changes resolution with you knowing to compensate for slowdown.

If a game can do both on consoles, then good on it.

ill just be satisfied with the experience, maybe these new gamers need to be reminded of what the best graphics for a FPS WAS before this new tech was out IMAGE. and i look at it this way Battlefield Bad Company 3 MIGHT have 1080p and developers are still getting used to PS3 tech even this late in the game give them some time to figure out the machine and i know other developers have done it but there not those other developers

"High rated games are sub HD (under 720p) like CoD, Halo, etc... "

Depends on the console, I'd say. High production games run full 720p like KZ(2/3), UC2/3, inFamous, Socom4 (yes, that, too), etc and usually do not tear (steady 30fps without a hitch).

But no, none of those games runs 1080p (all those run 3D, though, which has higher bandwidth requirements than 720p).

Still people think they would expect 1080p from these machines? When Microsoft launched they said it is unrealistic and that nearly every game will aim for 720p between 360 and PS3. This game was never going to be 1080p on console, not in a million years.

Anyone taking one look at what was being achieved on PC with BF3 could see that they were going for maximum quality and not maximum resolution or framerate, thus the only option would be 720p or lower on console.

This game is merely making clear the gap between the consoles and PC, because not only will the game look like the PC shots we have all seen, it'll be expected to run in 1080p and over 30 frames a second for many PC gamers.

If anyone thinks that the consoles are not that far behind PC technology still, then maybe finally they will change their opinion...

You think it's possible to run a beast of a game that has advanced lightning and destruction to run on 1920x1080 with 256MB of ram? are you fkn kidding me? Consoles are dead tech wise.

I'll be surprised if BF3 pulled 720p on consoles. That's quite impossible for ancient hardware. 1080p isnt a simple word. I know that because of my PC where I loose at least 25fps when I crank games up from 720p to 1080p.

A couple 1st gen ps3 games are. I think NGS was one. But devs started sacrificing rez for polygons so you prolly wont see too many nowadays.

NGS was 1080p up-scaled.
Ju  +   1538d ago
Polygons shouldn't really matter (still the same amount of poly's regardless of resolution - at least in 1080vs720, you'd probably render less in lower resolution(s)). It is the level of detail, though, and in relation to that this has an impact on the fill rate. Higher res, more memory, higher fill rate requirements. This combined with more effects on a per pixel basis (shaders, etc) has an impact on the resolution. Some of the true 1080 games render almost flat surfaces, with some reflections etc, but no sophisticated lightning, etc.

It's just foolish to think a game like battlefield 3 can come out on consoles with 1080p graphics that look just like the pc version.

The Only game that does 1080 native and looks phenomenal is Wipeout HD (which is just an upgraded of last gen game..
But in terms of a full out Next Gen Game ? NO!!
No most games are scaled up especially 360 games (yuck! up close on on my 37" Bravia no ,yuck! blur,blur, eye hurting....
GT5 yuck,,,GT prologue= Gorgeous!
COD MW etc.. yuck!!Dizying blur!!
(note i watch a lot of native HD stuff)
All my monitors are 1080P!

Don't kid yourselves console gamers, Limited ram starved Consoles have MASSIVE tradeoffs when it comes to HD!!
You loose serious texture and scenes detail with 1080p on 512 or 256 compressed RAM or not.

I would say Get a 60 dollar 512MB+ 60GBpersec+Bandwidth Video card and Play Battledfiled the way it is supposed to be played, not on PC360 sitting far away LMAO! for blurred to death visual =O, Play it up close personal in HD on a PC and HD Monitor !!!

Also, why the hell is it going to be better than COD & Halo & Rainbow & Ghost Recon anyway!?

I know some of you already have super gaming rigs and will not need to do a damn thing except by the game, but in reality the resolution being 720p as opposed to 1080p will not keep people from buying the game more on consoles.

They look better on 360 because Multiplat games (Majority) just get ported from xbox to PS3.

If they was to do it other way around, they would not know 360's limit meaning porting would literally be impossible.

You know if you read the article the developer is talking about supported resolutions.

AKA Upscallable resolutions, not native.

The game will only support 720p output. Output being the key word that makes me conclude they are talking about output resolutions, not Native game resolutions.

A great example of a non native 1080p game running in 1080p is ironically Call of Duty. Another is Grand Theft Auto 4. Both non-native 1080p that can be displayed in 1080p.

704 to 1080 yeah you will see difference, but its not like its going to make the game unplayable, it will still look great. Until we get a game that will only perform 480p on consoles then I don't really think we have an issue, and that ain't happening

Yeah I agree that those games looks realy realy stunning. But even those games dont have the same high resolution on the textures as BF3 on a PC has.

That said I think it dont mather so much, a console player sits 2+ meters away from the TV where a PC player sits 1meter or shorter...

For a console player the game wil look superb much becaus of the distance. That said a higher resolution on consoles would be much welcomed :)

Its not the fact that PC runs better thats causing the issue, its the fact DICE and EA were touting the PC version of it for months on end. Remember when Killzone 2 was first announced and it looked godly, then when everyone realized it was all pre rendered everyone freaked.

Its the same issue here. EA basically false advertised a game, said hey look COD fans, we have something cool. A good majority of COD's fanbase is on consoles...We the gamers that browse gaming forums knew it wouldn't happen, but the average joe that plays PS3, checks out the PC trailer thats even posted on the friggin PSN doesn't....

Im not saying they are not doing that. Im saying all the people "crying" over the visuals or using it as fire to make COD look "better" are simply doing it because of the audience they gained interest from.

I have several friends that didn't believe it when i told them "its all done on high end PC's" Especially when that same PC trailer is shown on console markets.

Ill check it out on PC, but I really want a good experience on console either way.

Battlefield's roots are from the PC, plus in has all the tech DICE needed to do justice with a sequel to Battlefield 2.

Also, strong communities on consoles usually favor shooters like Halo and Modern Warfare, and their arcade gameplay. Converting them to BF3 won't be an easy task, if at all, achievable.

Thats what Im trying to get across. Everyone as in everyone here knew that. The average console gamer didn't. I have friends that even browse gaming news sites at times that thought that was what itd look like on PS3. Now that they know this they got all grumpy and went back to being a COD fanboy.

And I also agree that these people will flock back to COD. Thats why I dont understand why EA is targeting COD with Battlefield. They should of done it with Medal of Honor or BLACK, or something better suited for it. They break the ice with MoH, then it disappears, thats not a good idea.

In the PC world if you can't do 1080p and high framerates then GTFO. Basically 1080p is baseline like dedicated servers.
BrianG  +   1538d ago
I agree.

And for the PC guys, I always keep seeing 1080p on all games and high framerates.

But what about details? According to Steam, the majority of PC gamers are still running a 9800GT from Nvidia. Sure it could probably run B3 in 1080p at 60 frames, but at what visual quality? Very low I'd assume. But even being modest, your not going to get the full visual experience on an older generation card.

1080p and Framerates aren't everything. And of the the two, framerates are more important.

For PC guys, if you need an upgraded Grahpics Card, given your CPU wont bottleneck it. Check out the MSI 560 ti Twin Frozr II. Arguably the best performance to dollar card on the market with awesome cooling and overclocking headroom.

Thing is, MANY people are upgrading their specs JUST for this game.

Seems obvious to me, BC2 ran great and was actually a really pretty game on consoles
outwar6010  +   1538d ago
wow n4g really is a double edged sword. At first they promoted hate for mw3 and made bf3 seem superior and then they started to cut bf3 with dumbness.
Solans Scott  +   1538d ago
Not a problem in my mind.
BLAKHOODe  +   1538d ago
I wish DICE and EA would just release the game already. 4 more months of whiners nitpicking over what BF3 can and cannot do might drive me insane.

And I thought COD fans were bad!

I am getting sick and tired of these PC fanboys.

" ... And now we’re getting even more confirmation that the PC version will indeed be the superior one...."

Talking about half-wits.

Any intelligent person knows that the PC version is, and will always be, the superior version of the game.

But, apparently these numnuts needed more confirmation. More like they needed an excuse to rant on.

Just enjoy the game on your platform of choice and shut up about others. Afterall, we get exactly what we paid for. And I certainly will be enjoying BF3 on my Ps3.

So you idiots complain then you blame PC gamers for speaking the truth? Maybe if you'd stop complaining then PC gamers would never have to waist their time explaining the obvious to stupid people like you.

Have you lost the plot or something?
FragMnTagM  +   1538d ago
Although I disagree with you as the PC people already know that the game looks better on PC, no questions there.

It is the PS3 fans that were crying foul.

Personally I think that the game looks great considering the power of each of the respective platforms shown.

Whoever thought that 512mb of split RAM and older graphics card in the PS3 would allow the graphics shown at E3 is just kidding themselves.

If you think any different, well you are delusional.

Oh and I love your avatar.

BF3 looks great on ps3, I just think the color is a bit off and the movements need to be fixed.then Im sorted. I LOVE BFBC2, great great game. I already paid for my preorder, CANT WAIT!

DICE also tweeted the footage was pre-alpha? now its a new build? or is it just a newer build to the PC?
xtremegamerage  +   1538d ago
As long as the game is playing at the native rez of your monitor/tv it's fine.

Knights templar, colour is not off, it was filmed from a tv in a studio. I've seen better footage and it looks good.

I don't think anyone was expecting 1080p. Not with the bandwidth of RSX.

720p is fine.

I have rigged my ps3 to my monitor which displays @ 1440x900 2ms on PC. Ran it in 720p, slightly off due to native rez being higher. ran PS3 at 1080p looks crystal clear.

Also have plasma HD. 720p or 1080p and looks fantastic.

For what the PS3 has it's putting out some awesome visuals.

Cooler Master HAF 922= $ 110
Intel I7 2600k = $320
P8p67 MoBo = $150
Raidmax Hybrid= $60
8GB Gskill Ram= $75
Western Dig 1TB HDD= $80
XFX HD Radeon 6950= $270

Playing BF3 In Full 1080p @ 50+ Fps with 64 players= priceless.
Bolts  +   1538d ago
That setup doesn't make sense.

First I never pay more than $100 on a gaming case when good ones can be had for less. Second, the i7 2600K is a waste of money in a gaming machine. Third, get something better than the 6950, like a 570 GTX and maybe a SDD.

N4Gsukballs  +   1538d ago
i added shipping, and plus i spent 100 on a case because i can and dont mind spending more money for a bigger case. Second the 6950 is perfect for me, i run crysis 1 & 2 at full settings in 1080p @ 45+ Fps and have no problems whatsoever and i could always flash the 6950 to 6970 which is an added plus. And How Is a I7 2600k Overclocked TO 4.8 GH Per Core Bad For a Gaming machine? ITS FUNNY BECAUSE I BUILT MY PC FROM AN NFG HEADLINE FROM GAMERS NEXUS. Ahh But now i see why you have a problem, its all in your name.
STONEY4  +   1538d ago
If I was paying over $100 for a case, I would definitely aim for a full-tower. The HAF 922 is mid-tower if I remember correctly.

The difference between the i5 2500k and i7 2600k is way too marginal considering the extra $100. Unless your using it for heavy video editing, or other things that could benefit from hyperthreading or the extra 2MB of L3 cache, it's not worth it.

For that 6950, hopefully you got a reference 2GB version and flashed it to a 6970.

All nitpicking asiide, the rig is great. I'm just one of those bang-for-buck guys.

the ps3 version looks better than kz3 but ps3 fanboys will never admit it because its multiplatform lol anyways I wonder what it looks like on 360

How can you tell from the footage? You sir have superior vision, you should work for Lens of Truth my friend.

No 720p either,Battlefield 3 runs at 1280x704(on PS3).
BrianG  +   1538d ago
They are not talking about Native resolutions.

Sure the comment section is ablaze with talk about native resolutions and PC's, etc...

But the developer is referencing SUPPORTED OUTPUT resolutions.

What led me to that conclusion? The fact that I know what the question was truly asking and his answer, "support 720p output".

The game could still be 720p native and output 1080p, plenty of games do it nowadays.

PS3 latest build ? This article is a fake!
PS3 version on Jimmy Fallon show was a pre-alpha, versus the PC version at E3 was alpha.
A difference not for less.

consoles are never gonna reach the PC's high end specs, i dont what the fuss is we have been playing in 720p for the last few years and the games have been amazing.

If you wanna play the best looking version your gonna have to get your self a excellent gaming pc like InSTaGIB up there.
BeastlyRig  +   1538d ago
Why are ps3 fanboys boasting about small linear games being 1080p?

Why has no one said Uncharted series, Killzone series, Resistance series, God of war series, Rachet series, Socom series, infamous series, every multi plat..

Stop boasting about tiny world games please..

It's a console & is not supposed to be 1080p or advance until the next console!

There are people who have left 1080p behind already!

I would think what u call next gen will be 1080p.
as the 1200p & higher area kicks in.

And yes higher resolution matters as less pixels mean less picture & a lesser view of the game world..

Even If your TV is bigger than my monitor you will still see less of the world.. ironic?

You are correct man, I sit up at night all the time thinking how much better my life would be if I could play all my games in 1080p or above.

I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I played Crysis 2, and I realized that I wasn't getting the full experience.

People like yourself, with the "BeastlyRigs" you have are kings among men. That is why you get all the girls and are generally better socially adjusted than the rest of the gaming community.

I for one am glad that there are people such as yourself to let me know that since PCs are able to be upgraded so often, that they will most likely have the edge on consoles. I didn't know that the PS3 and 360 were older tech and had limitations until you told me.

I can't wait for you or another of your PC brothers to drop another nugget of knowledge on us humble console owners. I have been deceived, all this time I thought I was enjoying games like KZ2 and 3, Uncharted 1 and 2, GOW 3, etc. I was actually just fooling myself.

PC gamers, class all the way. Thanks guys. :-)

Guess I will have to settle for getting all the best PC games without the marginal upgrades, along with excellent exclusives and avoid having to sell a kidney and my first born. How will I escape the shame?? Goes off to play some Wipeout HD (1080p). ::SAD FACE::
Persistantthug  +   1538d ago
@BeastlyRig.....Not necessarily..
You can put pong in 1080p....that isn't gonna make Pong a better looking game than INFAMOUS 2.

Lots of XBOX LIVE games are in 1080p too, but that doesn't mean they look better than Gears of War 3 which is 720.

What you're trying to say isn't quite true, BeastlyRig.

FFS it's like complaining a decent PC from 2004 can't run BF3 at full. Old tech perhaps.
beast242tru  +   1538d ago
thats ok just make sure it plays well and has a consistent frame rate you guys did a great job with the graphics
NBT91  +   1538d ago
Exactly! Who honestly gives a damn about the graphics? I mean it is obviously not going to be a bad looking game, sure it is not going to look as good as the high end gaming PC version, but then I am pretty sure the same thing happened would have happened with Bad Company 2... That never stopped me from playing the PS3 version even up to this day though.
