Battlefield 3 Xbox 360 to have an "Awesome" Feature

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.

The story is too old to be commented.

Awesome feature *rolls eyes*

Hanif-8762251d ago (Edited 2251d ago )

I really wanna see a direct gameplay trailer of the PS3 version. I actually thought that Dice would of released that by now :-(

HeavenlySnipes2251d ago

I'm not even going to tell him. Someone else do it.....

Stevo912251d ago

You been living under a stone the last few days?

helghast1022251d ago

He said "Direct", meaning an actual gameplay trailer, and not an on-stage demo.
Jesus christ guys

hiredhelp2251d ago

Ill do it Deadlyspartan, theres a site called youtube try using it .
Battlefield 3 ps3 gameplay . Youll see

Deputydon2251d ago


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.

frostypants2251d ago

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".

koh2250d ago

Did you read the article? It says the awesome feature is lighting related... how anyone gets Kinect from that I don't know.

Fred-G-Sanford2250d ago

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.

bakasora2250d ago

What feature? You need to swap disc when you play multiplayer? lol

cross game chat 360 exclusive confirmed

ChrisW2250d ago

The awesome feature will hopefully be PC - Xbox cross platform gameplay.

Kurt Russell2250d ago

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?

ChrisW2250d ago (Edited 2250d ago )


Both PS3 and Xbox have games that can be played online with the PC. There are currently 12 cross-platform games:

Ice2ms2250d ago

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.

Kurt Russell2250d ago

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.

ChrisW2249d ago (Edited 2249d ago )

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"


MWong2250d ago (Edited 2250d ago )

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.

DeadlyFire2250d ago

Oh wow we get voice commands for SP on Kinect? I really don't care at all about any Kinect feature.

hamburger1232250d ago

Xbox has RROD Support and PS3 YLOD?

now lighting is a "feature" and also DUPLICATE STORY!!!!

kingdoms2251d ago (Edited 2251d ago )

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.


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.

Why o why2251d ago

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
