IncGamers: Platform holder imposed restrictions prevent entire grid of human players.
lol more & more devs are getting on the console limit train!
I wish more get on the more innovation and less complaining about graphics train. I'm more concerned with lack of original titles this gen than graphics. We have some but not many.
Nice way to pusssy out and blame it on the consoles ... way to go devs.
You know, we say that (don't care about graphics) but we do. A lot actually. And more than gamers, critics care about graphics a LOT even if they say they don't. That's why a cool game that's graphics are a bit behind the top dogs will get crappy review scores, leading to bad sales. So it's no wonder that devs are always trying to keep their graphics up, possibly to the detriment of the other parts of the game.
They are just being lazy. Consoles are at their limit , thats for sure. but this kind of game should be able to support 24 players on consoles without a problem if they put their heads into it.
More like making excuses
Really? Please, enlighten us with your extensive expertise of modern big-budget game development. I'd much rather trust a recognized developer than some guy on the internet, personally.
True to that. If PD cant do it with premium graphic cars then no one CAN! F1 2011 will still be awesome even without 24 players.
consoles cant handle alot of things now days.
the ps3 can't handle my diarrhea.
Anyway, it's pretty obvious we're approaching a new generation of consoles within the next couple of years. However, I'm not gonna be mad about not having 24 players online on this game. I'm sure next generation we'll have well over that number. Until then, I'll be happy with what we've got. Besides, there are games that do over that this generation: MAG (256 players), Resistance 2 (60 players), etc.
True to me we have really been limited to 16 being the max limit You have resistance and mag, but they dont flow on the same level because of what it takes to make it happen hardware wise etc I think in the next gen 32 players should be the minimum in most games
Player count does not make a game great. High player count games can actually be somewhat annoying if done incorrectly.
i thought of CODs groundwar mode when you said that..the maps are to small for that sort of thing.
Reminds me of Radec Academy in KZ2 with 32 players... *shudders*
there are a LOT of things consoles can't handle lol even bulletstorm maxed out on pc destroys all console games in the graphics department. even a 2006 high end pc destroys both consoles combined in raw power
Consoles have passed their limit. Time for the next-gen.
glad to hear people say what i been saying for the last 16 months. I own a very powerful PC that was overclocked by scan 8GBs of RAM core i7 oc`d to 4.8GHz, 3 SSD drives and a gtx560ti.I also own a mac pro..yet still have no desire to become a PC gamer..just bring me some new consoles..i will be buying BF3 on pc though..mostly out of curiosity.ill still end up playing it mostly on the x360 with my amigos. My machines are really for composing and mixing music,hence the spec. im using this shitty dell laptop for internet usage. i only connect my desktops to the internet to check for updates...but BF3 will be the exception to my rule.
You basically wasted all that money then?
wtf? thats like saying i have a ford and a ferrari but i wanna drive the ford
...yeah like those above said, you pretty much wasted your money. You don't need THAT much processing power for composing and mixing music. You wouldn't even need that much if you were doing video editing.
Snooooooooooooooore! Personal experience of both systems: Console: Buy game. Put disk in console. Install (optional). Download patches (optional). Recline on couch. Enjoy. PC: Read requirements. Do I have the right setup to enjoy this game fully? Maybe. Buy game. Install (mandatory). Download patches (dependent on setup). Play. Crash. Restart. Crash. Check forums. Download patches for graphics driver. Install. Play game (hunched over monitor). Crash. Check forums. Tweak obscure setting. Play. Game slow / choppy / acting up. Tweak settings. Still choppy. Tweak more settings. Eventually succeed. Play game (still hunched over monitor). Wonder if it could be easier...
u must have really bad luck with PC gaming. all i do is buy a game from Steam, download, play.
lol The "hunched over monitor" part had me LMAO...that's the ONLY reason why I don't game on PC.
Uh, what century are you living in? You can connect your PC to your TV you know, no ones forcing you to use a monitor.
some oneee needs a new PC,all i need to do is install and play :)
Mine is pretty old and I do the same thing. Of course I don't usually max out the graphics, but all my games (more than 100 on Steam) run fine.
Hers how us pc gamers do it, 1) Download game 2) Press Play (Why the hell do you need to change settings, Most games auto detect settings because of idiots who dont know how to adjust a slider)
Hunched over a monitor? Why don't you just lean back?
devs need better net coding teams no ifs or butts bout it...
Within the next 2-3 years, maybe even a year (for microsoft) we could see a new console, the thing is, consoles will always be a step behind PC
I dont think that matters so much. yes, alot of games run better on PC but outside of graphical improvements and more players, console versions of the same games retain all core gameplay mechanics and still look fine on a good HDTV..then there is the added social element. I can live without the absolute best graphics aslong as a game looks good..evidently the majority of the gaming community feel that way too seeing as console games sell more than PC games. As i said before im buying BF3 on my pc just to see what my pc can do but there is no way i would i buy PC games regularly. i just happen to preffer consoles and can accept their weaknesses. alot of console gamers (myself included)want a new gen because quiet frankly, its about that time..this gen has already been 2 years too long imo. ill be the first inline for the wiiu, nextbox and ps4...then again ill just have em delivered..not keen on cues.
Lol, the PS3 can handle 256 players in MAG so...
MAG Can Handle 256 Players Yes But Look At The Graphics And Physics, They Are Shit. Those Things Arent Eating Much Resources So Thats Why MAG Can Do 256 Players
I actually think people are confusing "Consoles" with the X360. The PS3 is just fine imo.
The 360 and PS3 are actually very similar in terms of power, they're both running on severely outdated hardware and both suffer the same limitations, ie lack of RAM etc. Only idiot fanboys think one is vastly superior to the other, and quite frankly it's getting tiresome hearing people claim that the 360 is the ONLY one holding developers back, because it's not.
dont confuse your content with the ps3 with the facts about the advances in tech. have you not seen the BF3 vids? or epics samaritan tech demo...I want that shit now! ps3 cant do that much less the X360. Its time, man.....nice J`s in your avatar too..i think the J4`s are better though.
my netcode coding is crap , let's blame consoles !!!!
Go mod the netcode then, oh wait sorry.
way to miss my point ..
lol unsecured PC fanboys
MAG and Resistance 2 say hi
