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.

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?

Joule2468d ago

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.

Ranshak2468d ago (Edited 2468d ago )

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:





Gran Touring2468d ago

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...

BeastlyRig2468d ago (Edited 2468d ago )

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.

Hanif-8762468d ago

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 :-(

Netic2468d ago

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.

palaeomerus2468d ago

Rumble is a last-gen feature. LOLZ.

Fishy Fingers2468d ago

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.

kookie2468d ago

If you have a good pc you can cap it at 60 fps, doesnt mean it is.
