Johan Andersson, the lead Rendering Architect at DICE and for their upcoming game Battlefield 3 has said that the Xbox 360 version of the game will have an "awesome" feature.
Awesome feature *rolls eyes*
I really wanna see a direct gameplay trailer of the PS3 version. I actually thought that Dice would of released that by now :-(
I'm not even going to tell him. Someone else do it.....
You been living under a stone the last few days?
He said "Direct", meaning an actual gameplay trailer, and not an on-stage demo. Jesus christ guys
Ill do it Deadlyspartan, theres a site called youtube try using it . Battlefield 3 ps3 gameplay . Youll see
@helghast102 Just to clarify, He means actual gameplay in general captured directly from the source (PS3/Xbox360) and not using an offscreen camera or a crappy partial SD direct feed. In other words, NBC sucks.
I assume it's Kinect related.
I'm hoping for a replay editor.
Yep, probably a Kinect feature. Something like "make grenade throwing motion, and your guy will toss a grenade 3 seconds later if no one shoots you first".
Did you read the article? It says the awesome feature is lighting related... how anyone gets Kinect from that I don't know.
The 360 version already has an awesome feature, it's called "the Xbox 360 controller". That alone is reason enough for me to purchase multiplats for my 360.
What feature? You need to swap disc when you play multiplayer? lol
does it have anything to do with "PEW! PEW! PEW! PEW!*
Seems abit cheap of dice.. use up part of the sony e3 conference to announce exclusive weapon.. to then say the 360 version will have a better extra.. take sonys money then give the col stuff to the rival.. lol
Kinect?! YUSSS!! ....Oh wait, never mind. :(
cross game chat 360 exclusive confirmed
The awesome feature will hopefully be PC - Xbox cross platform gameplay.
It will be a little odd all the PC lot flying around in Jets on parts of the maps that aren't accessible to those playing on xbox though... Almost a tad unfair?
you are joking right?
NOPE! Both PS3 and Xbox have games that can be played online with the PC. There are currently 12 cross-platform games: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
They aren't saying it's not possible, the PC version has more players online ( 64 I think correct me if I'm wrong ) and the maps will probably be bigger. Basically the PC version is like a different game.
As Ice2ms said... I wasn't generalising, I was specifically referring to Battlefield 3 and basing my response from the 100's of articles we've had talking about the difference between each platform. A link to 11 completely unrelated games being cross platform is about as much use as a link to the flat earth societies homepage right now.
My "NOPE!" was referring to gcolley's statement. Oh and by the way, you forgot to count 'Quake 3', thus equals 12. Also let's not forget that the numbers of players per a map can be changed. Now, you can disagree with me all you want, besides you seem good at it, but cross platform online is the only "awesome" feature that I can possibly imagine.
It's a feature of the lighting. N4G is so bad at disseminating actual information "repi Johan Andersson @obiadekanobi we have a special lighting solution on Xbox 360 as well that we haven't talked about yet, it's also pretty awesome :)" "I love talking directly to gamers, but too many troll journalists out there so think I'll have to shut up about #bf3 details for now, bye" :(
I was wondering what everybody has been talking about in this article. The only feature Andersson mentioned was a lighting system that allows the game to share the same brightness as the PS3 version. WooHoo more lights??? I see people talking about Kinect voice commands, additional weapons .... etc. That's how rumors are made.
Oh wow we get voice commands for SP on Kinect? I really don't care at all about any Kinect feature.
Xbox has RROD Support and PS3 YLOD?
now lighting is a "feature" and also DUPLICATE STORY!!!!
Perhaps a advanced lighting system that take advantage of the edram. Dynamic lighting as advanced as halo reach and forza 4 Don't be mad fella. Microsoft has been requiring devs to take advantage of the 360 hardware lately and not just simply cranking them out neglecting quality and the full capabilities of the 360. @radyboy Dice's plans of hyping the game by taking advantage of ps3 fans backfired. Who's to say Dice didn't have something special planned for the 360 all along(they did) but they're hyping the 360 version early to punish the ps3 fans I wish devs would ignore the whinners, they don't have to praise ps3 as a god to sell games. The ps3 fans may smear, slander and attack the company and game but they will buy your games in the end.
Thought we didnt buy games. You sure flip flop to suit your cause dontcha. Nothing wrong with the 360 version getting extras imo though i doubt its anything drastic or as definitive as our fella heres projecting. Ime will tell
But it sure is OK to do that for the 360 then. /s We'll see if the whining will be the same when we will actually see 360 footage. I don't even think that rant came from (serious) PS3 fans. Every PS3 gamer who saw the footage can sure appreciate what Dice has built here. It doesn't even mean anything. All 3 versions have very specific code tailored to each platform. Obviously PS3's SPU based deferred renderer will not run on the 360, nor on the PC. Neither will the heavily shader based deferred renderer of the PC run on either PS3 nor 360, and so Dice will come up with what ever strength the 360 has to implement what's needed in the best way for that platform, too. Duuuh. Seriously?
Or maybe those games were taking full advantage of XBOX 360's hardware afterall.......I suppose that's possible. ;)
what a stupid statement lol. "Microsoft has been requiring devs to take advantage of the 360 hardware lately" really just read that a couple times to yourself. So now all the sudden Microsoft implemented some sort of standard for 3rd party devs? really? How would they go about doing that? please explain. but like i said in my post "lighting is now a special feature" as if the pc or ps3 version wont have good lighting effects.
@kingdoms you are completely clueless. Dont write anymore.
You're beyond deluded, it's funny. I skimmed through your coment history, then I went to wash out my eyes.
"Unfortunately lately developers have been programming for the lowest common demnominator (PS3) holds these games back and they never really reach their full potential." Oh, yes, I remember. The PS3 held back Halo Reach, Gears of War, Alan Wake, ... hm...yep, exactly. /s
kingdoms: do us a favor and sign out forever.
Lmao you can't be serious man you just can't
Wtf is wrong with you retards. What kingdom is saying is true. Its been confirmed by DIGITAL FOUNDRY.
@paintsville dude do you ever get tired of talking shit out your ass? wtf you're a supreme xbox fanboy we get that...go play your box and stop trolling already....and if ps3 is the lowest common denominator then why do almost all of its exclusives look incredible?...woooooooww and people like to talk shit about ps3 fans when there are just as much 360 fansboys out there like paintsville and kingdoms
jukins you seem butthurt as well as a couple others in this section. Shame. Cant we all just get along?
how do i seem butt hurt? like I said before "lighting is a special feature" Im getting the game regardless of "special lighting" on the 360 lol. Try to find something else to nitpick on
Lighting hmmmm I will wait to hear more
That's awesome...I guess.
bubs for your Delicious avatar :P
I get it.
I actually am quite jelly of your avatar
looks like DICE are sick and tired of the ps3 whingers . p.s. i thought the footage of the ps3 version looked fine
You need to show me these whingers. Ive been trying to smoke em out but they never show themselves. Maybe activision are more cunning than people give them credit for. From what im seeing this whole whinging thing has been blown to high heaven. I thought the footage was perfectly fine for a multiplatform game. I didnt hear this much alledged noise when black ops or whatever was shown and their engines not as good as battlefields so im not so sure there are as many whingers as we're being led to believe. I mean ive honestly heard people say they're not getting this game because of its perceived low quality......strange thing when seeds are planted into what i consider a 'weaker' mind
Well actually you are a PS3 whiner right now. You are whining about not having seen a whiner whine about the BF3 thing. Really though besides a few idiots on N4G I haven't seen a lot of PS3 fans whining.
theIMP: Where do you see him whining? Go on, point it out.
"I didnt hear this much alledged noise when black ops or whatever was shown and their engines not as good as battlefields so im not so sure there are as many whingers as we're being led to believe.

Legion dude, if thats what you call whining then you've gotta meet my wife n kids...My point is im saying i dont see these whiners the media is on about. There are a few but no more than usual so i say its all bull. I reckon Activision are trying to plant seeds. Everybody's pretty much stated that they thought the footage was adequate and from the past few years its been obvious that multiplatform devs aren't expected to overachieve or surpass their pc counterparts. Still waiting for these links to the evidence.....and since this article was posted im sure more have come up...just saying Why havent Arsenal purchased the players they need yet? Im tired of waiting until the last day of the transfer window, it happens every year. Why do we always try and save stupid money? Its not like they havent upped the season ticket by 6% after winning zilch for near 6 years. Our prices are higher than the current champions wtf........now thats a whino moment
@ marshow All of it. The fact anyone even gives a f$%k is sort of whiney to me.
Why do you care if he's whining then IMP? or are you just starting random fights with people?
Actually i read a post on here yesturday, that they were responding to thoes complaining and the words they used something like Some of you. So that assured me they knew that not all of us spoke for a couple idiots. Dont forget they have there own fourum, and official console sites go check them out, So i think youll find dice knows only select few of whingers.
lol "a awesome"? I find that funny for an article and english isn't even my primary language... + won't be better than the * pc exclusive (64 players, anti-aliasing etc) or the: * Ps3 exclusive: BF 1992
Yeah because BF 1992 will make BF3 better. @Below You can whine all you want, but i already preordered the PC version, so.
you get 1 game for free on the ps3 and you get an overall much superior experience on the pc :) think exclusive content on 360 will top that? It's probably more kinect voice shit LOL! GO FORWARD!! LMAO
I think it's sweet we get 1943.. I never played it
1943 and actually i hoped it be pc 1942 instead psn and think 360 marketplace game. So not huge deal to me as i already own it.
hey can u pc fanboys stfu? oh wait i bet you guys can't do that now can you?
Wait, how is PC gaming not relevant? I'm more of a console guy but at least I can admit PC gaming puts all three current gen consoles to shame. Is this a new trend? Bashing PC gaming now? That's laughable.
Lets keep in mind about which platform started it all.
"Lets keep in mind about which platform started it all." Are you talking about board games?? Checkers? Chess? Kids have been playing games long before electrical adaptations came about. But with platforms... remember that consoles started it all as PC games themselves did not popularize Pong... it was when everyone could play the games in their homes that the revolution was started. The computer might have been the foundry of the invention but the console was what actually created gaming at home.
