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
