OXM UK: "Why DICE's next shooter looks perfectly fine on console."
I can't tell the difference between 1080p and 720p on my screen. It's just a bog-standard 20 inch affair though.
... it's DICE. They always make great looking maps that look amazing. Rallisport Challenge 2 still looks better design-wise than most modern-day racers. Yeah, it doesn't have the same polygons and such, but design-wise it's STUNNING.
Hell no it doesnt need 1080p thats so last gen. Running at 5760*1080 is more like it.
Anyone who saw Battlefield Bad Company 2 on the PC and consoles should have had the same expectations for Battlefield 3. BFBC2 on the PC is on of the best looking shooters to date, it's gorgeous. On the console, the game doesn't look anywhere near as polished and that a limitation of the consoles, not DICE.
@stanlee Well yes that is comon sense. however when console gamers were told of this very fact, they said the usual crap they are fed "Newer engine will perform better" Well wake up people there is only so much a newer engine can do, it wont make 6 year old hardware new again. I know i am going to spammed with disagrees however fact is fact. Console hardware is old anyone thinking a newer engine will somehow magically result in much better graphics is only deluding themselves. Edit: people may have disagreed with my statement above however with the level of hardware available today, it doesnt cost much to be gaming on multiple screens. 3 monitors cost less then a HDTV, a GPU powerful enough to run 3 of them wont cost more then 250usd, its all very doable.
try saying that to the PC gamer for once!
I can't tell the difference between 1080P & 720P, but I sure as shit CAN tell the difference between 30 & 60FPS! Stop kidding yourself.
If you believed that the PS3 version of Battlefield 3 was gonna look identical to the PC version then you need to pray to GOD for wisdom, knowledge and understanding because your clearly lacking all of them. Simple common sense would tell you that there would be no need for the superior PC hardware if a 5 year old PS3 tech can still match it on every level?
You do know, The Cell, is alien tech. So it is far superior to any PC out now.
@El Jugador: Being huge Playstation fan I think you went waaaay over the top with your statement.
He forgot to add /s after his statement :P This is N4G after all with the level of misinformation on this site, people need to make it clear when they are being sarcastic.
Four reasons I dont care: 1) 2) 3) 4)
720p @ 30 frames is fine. Most shooters, including Bad Company 2 run at these specs and no one ever complained. But some are now for some reason...
Spoiled by pc footage that's all.. Everyone basically wants dx11 features on consoles now. Most don't realize it's more than 1080p & 60fps that makes it look good.
What people should be asking themselves is which console FPS ever ran at 1080p and 60fps? they are asking the impossible of DICE which is just sad :-(
Yea really, I would like to now one FPS shooter on consoles that runs at 1080p with 60FPS locked.Even MW3 doesn't even run in 720p it runs in 1024x600. So yea BF3 rules and rules even better on my PC!!
</damage control> apparently things are not needed when you can't have them
Peace and goodwill to all men.
Rumble is a last-gen feature. LOLZ.
I'd understand if it were the norm to see 1080 @ 60fps, but the hardware simply isn't up to it while providing all the on screen eye candy. BF3 looks great on console, it's just that they're going all out on PC also and a few kids have to throw their toys around.
If you have a good pc you can cap it at 60 fps, doesnt mean it is.
i cnt tell the difference only way i would be pissed is if the game is jagged edges with bad gameplay that ps3 video i saw looked really great 2 me. most games look pretty damn good when coming from big studios IMO if you feel bad about it go and look @ call of duty on your ps2 then turn on ur current gen console and look @ alomost any game and see the huge difference. i really dnt know why people complain soo much im enjoying the sh*t out of this gen
It's good to see that the PC guys are actually getting a PC title this time around. I feel for them when developers put them on the backburner and give them a poor port. I think if you've invested money into a PC for the performance then you're actually getting your money's worth with this game. The game will be good on consoles and it will be great on PC. Things are as they should be.
OMG, a smart and reasonable person on N4G!!!!!! You my friend, get a hug and a cookie.
If this game doesn't run at 2160p on my PS2 and Wii then I'm certainly not buying it.
That is 720p runs at 30fps and includes the following: *Dynamic Destruction *Large expansive maps *Vehicles: Land, Air & Sea *Dynamic Lighting *Dynamic Particle lighting *Decent graphics and Draw distances Name one...
star .....hawk ... ( it doesn't have dynamix destruction like redfaction for example ) but it has everything else
well you said it ... it doesn't have realtime destruction with physics associated with it. When I'll see the same kind of game with fully destructible buildings I'll be comparing games but as of now no games comes close to the frostbite 2.0 engine. THe only games on console that has robusts engines are Crysis2 and GoW with unreal engine 3 but still the unreal engine is quite getting old.
i'm not saying that battle field 3 is weak .. i'm saying that what BF3 is providing ATM is well above the most expected franchises in teh FPS genre
I cant believe people are making a big deal out of this....
People are not making a big deal out of this the apparent complaining has been exaggerated.
"And xbox can't even do native 1080" thats bullsh1t fool.
It'S not bullshit it's a fact they have 3 games that has 1080p SUPPORTED resolution wich means the game has been upscaled but it's not real NATIVE resolutions.alot of games are 720 and upscaled and not true 1080p.
Incorrect. ALL 360 games can be upscaled to 1080p by the 360 hardware. The 360 also does native 1080p output though - virtua tennis is 1080p NATIVELY, as is NBA street and a few other full retail games. Many XBLA games are natively 1080p as well. Really, we're 6 years into this generation and there are STILL idiots like yourself spreading completely incorrect information to try and make one console look better than another. It's pathetic.
Netic you muppet,all 360 games support 1080p, all of them, cant say the same about ps3
for a fact 95 percent of all 360 games support 1080p upscaled whereas ps3 it more like 60 percent! infamous,UC,Gow all can't even be upscaled. Play on a 1080p tv with most ps3 games and watch the video signal swtich to 720. No real games on consoles support 1080p native.
All 360 gamres upscale to 1080p due to the Anna chip. There are plenty of 360 games that are native 1080p around the same as ps3 infact. It's hard to tell of you are trolling saying things you know are not true or if you're really that ignorant. I can't believe you got so many agrees one group of people can't be this hateful or willfully stupid. All it takes is a little resource before you open your hole.
Have a look at this old youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watc... feature=player_profilepage#
Everyone making a big deal about this crap and i bet the people crying like women will still buy it. Its like people saying they boycott COD but still buy it.
"1. You're not a pro gamer" This first reason doesn't make any sense...
how did ign gave the best xbox game award when no xbox footage was shown at all? not making fun of anyone,but i just dont understand?
Is this everything the gaming world has to offer? Another FPS, another BF, another COD, your FPS guys are pretty lame and outdated. Hey apes, here is someone who can shooting you...AGAIN.
shooting others is fun.shooting friends online is even more fun.stabbing a guy who killed you minute ago is damn satisfying.there are other games out there as well,but it doesnt mean that people cant enjoy shooters.
*in caveman voice* 'Here is someone who can shooting you..again ugh ugh ugh' lol That was a sentence from his post if you didn't notice. :) There sure are a lot of haters on this here internet. If he feels that was about FPS and people who enjoy them then he should really be talking to his FRIENDS like that. Not posting spiteful comments on a website.
What's with the attitude there Jefferson? What kind of games do you play? Because although they may not have shooting most games have you repeatedly killing people. Doesn't matter if it's with a gun or a sword or a bow. It's all killing, over and over. It's funny that you call people who enjoy FPS apes with your sentence structure, or lack thereof. Also, to answer your question: "Is this everything the gaming world has to offer?" Obviously there is much more to gaming. You know that if you are a gamer. An intelligent, mature person could have just said something along the lines of "Hmm I personally don't care for the over-saturation of fps" blah blah blah. But, your comment is pretty much a grade-a example how unreasonably hostile some people can be simply because they don't like something. Not very nice fella. -Jack *edit* I signed at the bottom lol
not to mention that if he really doesnt care about fps genre then he should avoid such articles.i mean isnt that a bit of waste of time?i dont comment on games i dont have interest in.yhh,i wish my english would be better,i could write a bit more on the subject.oh well...
My god, are people STILL writing about this?!?!?!
I could care less about this but the mounting excuses do seem to be mounting and I'm still wondering why Dice can't make things like 24+ player maps on consoles happen. Would it really break the game to add another 8 players to the cap? BF3 looks 3Xs as good as Bad Company and is said to have improved destruction...but somehow, we get the same player cap? Dice has too many excuses these days. And this article was trash. I don't play games for a living so I don't need 1080p and 60FPS? LOL.
or get it for pc and have both
1. Screen 2. Screens 3. Screens 4. 5760*1080 resolution if it wasn't for the peripheral vision advantage of 3 screens i would go 1600p on the 30" monitor. If you can Max BF3 out DO IT cause DICE is pushing the envelope on this one.
