The Battlefield 3 beta invites are just starting to be distributed to anyone who was lucky enough to purchase Medel of Honor, and this has given us the perfect chance to get a glimpse at all three formats of the game and how they look.
Definitely getting it on the PC.
For the power, PS3 for the mates
thts one sh1tty comparison
PC-PS3-Xbox360 Think "Human Centipede"... Edit: Anybody still think BF3 will win GOTY after this? XD
Yeah it is. They're just random screens plucked from both versions. You can't do a proper 'comparison' that way. The article doesn't even specify which is which. Fail.
Hey! They forgot to add pc vs ps3 vs 360 pics! This is all out war.
They're not labelled but IMO the odd ones (1,3,5,etc), excluding the first pic of the soldiers around the table, are more bright, vivid and have better shadows. Now all we need is for Gamersmint to say which are which. How do you approve an a comparison article, lame as they already are, when they don't depict which is which?
You can tell which ones are for which platform. Every 2nd screen that has a blue-ish tint to them are Xbox 360. Personally, I prefer the 360 as it looks a bit sharper. The PS3 looks very soft but doesn't have as many jaggies. I'll have access to both the PS3 and 360 betas so I'll be able to distinguish which looks nicer.
Besides the (originally) non-labelled images, and the lack of direct comparisons, the full-size images are not even the same size. Fail.
This isn't a good comparison.
This comparison just proves that there isn't much difference(if any) between the 360 and PS3 versions. No one here can tell which is which, because they arent labeled correctly. Nice work Gamersmint you just made a bunch of fanboys look foolish.
None of the pics are the same areas and the 360 pics are 1080p and ps3 720p and the game doesnt run in neither natively. So what is this article trying to prove? That 360 runs it in 1080p native? as thats untrue. Or trying to stretch it to make ps3 look better? We already know from Devs PS3 will be slightly better but these screenshots tell us nothing.
Given the comments I assume that the pics originally weren't marked. So excluding the first pic 1, 3, & 5 are from the 360 version,.....hmmmm thats interesting. I guess many wanted to say which looked better but weren't sure which was which lol, thats perfect I think all sites should do this, release screens, take a poll on which gamers prefer and then release the full in depth tech analysis a day later, pffft lmfao....I imagine the first DF or LoT comparisons are going to be on fire on this site.
i cant believe how bad the consoles version looked compared to the pc version. i mean it was expected but this is too much!!! graphics DO matter. having high res textures and 1080P matters. triple the amount of online players matters! i can see NO reason to buy the consoles version (unless to play with your mates) other than that, if you have a decent rig then the pc version is the way to go.
What are you talking about? Play the game first. The gameplay is amazing, I think it's the best FPS I've ever played in terms of controls and movement. The graphics don't really mean anything unless you want them too. I've playe the beta, and I'm overlooking the fact that the game looks better on PC and when you accept the game for what it is on each console, you'll see that the game is really amazing. Based on the beta alone it has my vote for goty.
I am surprised the PC version doesn't look A LOT better. Yes it looks better, but it should be looking a lot better, considering the HW differences, the gfx margin should be bigger.
And no gfx and 1080p do NOT matter. I have palyed the PC and PS3 versions and the only difference I see are the graphics. Gameplay is the same. I actually enjoyed the PS3 version more, but thats partly because I prefer gamepad and my PS3 is hooked up to my HDTV, wheres my PC was played on a PC monitor.
Let them enjoy their high end pc, it's one of the first game they can scream about "ooh looook it's so much beautifull compared to consoles" (but it's not so different on your big screen tv in reality)
If graphics matter then you need to game on a PC. If you were thinking these consoles would look and run the same game like a PC, then you bought into too much PR babble by Sony and MS and related game publishers etc.
Dude look at all the disagree's you got for saying something that was pretty damn logical. I'd say performance and framerate is more important than graphics although they go hand in hand. The problem with N4G is the children get too emotionally invested if they only have one platform to choose to play the game on. Personally I prefer to play on consoles as my mates are always online. The problem with the Battlefield series on the consoles is they have always been severly gimped - PC always has better battlefield games; multiple jets (dogfights anyone?) and planes, bigger maps and 64 players.. Hence playing it feels like a Battlefield.
the beta is far from polished, gamefest had a build ahead of this beta release.. and there's a visible difference :) (played on ps3 btw)
PC version only looks amazing on a top spec PC and then thats if graphics make a great game which they don't look at the top selling games of all time and tell me graphics sold them games http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... It's why the wii dominated for so long even though it hadn't the power to keep up with the other consoles. Gamers have never cared too much for graphics they want great games and if they comes with nice graphics thats great too.
"Let them enjoy their high end pc, it's one of the first game they can scream about "ooh looook it's so much beautifull compared to consoles" (but it's not so different on your big screen tv in reality)"
lol, keep telling yourself that pal.
Minecraft shits all over your statement about graphics.
..same game sol invictus (but you don't have a ps3, so the choice is simple)
Not a very good comparison. Can't really tell.
Gamersmint is the worst website in the world. They don't even capture their own screens, instead they take screen grabs from youtube videos that aren't even theirs. Since they have no credibility anyway, I'm sure they don't give a $hit, they just want hits. Waste of webspace!
Agreed. PC if anything but I am still boycotting EA and CoD. Waiting for CS:GO to come out. But one thing I did notice out of the comparison is that the PS3 has better draw distances than the 360 pics do. The farther out I can see the better. Plus what I see in the 360 pics is a sort of "tangerine dream" feel to it every time I see them. The PS3 seems to set the mood of the battlefield better. Bright blue skies are something that I don't want to see in shooters ever again. Unless it is a 1942 remake....
ps3 looks way better than xbox xbox looks too nice and girly lol
How can you tell? it doesnt even tell you which version is which, or am too baked to even see?
and the pc version totally,ultimately DESTROYS the consoles versions. keep fighting over who got less screen tearing and low res textures. am a console gamer myself but sorry the gap between the pc and the version is waaaaay to big for me to not get it on the pc.
Nobody cares buddy. Seriously. This is a comparison (a somewhat crappy one) of the PS3 and 360 versions. That's it! No one's bashing anyone about who's is better, but here you are in a PS3/360 article trying to start sh&t with the PC version. Get over yourself and go play somethiing FFS. Yes, PC version looks all purdy and stuff. Good for you. Leave us "poor" people enjoy our "crap" versions. *rolls eyes*
Oh hey cell, havent seen your fanboyism in a while. How are ya? claiming superiority on ps3 i see.
I'm curious as to why the 360 version has no black bars. It looks to me like it's rendering at native 720p. I'm wondering maybe if dice lied about both having black bars so it wouldn't upset ps3 owners about getting the sub hd version?
I can totally tell that too since the screenshots aren't just ripped from different sites instead of the site making them themselves where they make them as close as possible in location and guns to actually compare.
both look bloody awful
better than the 360 imho
how do you come to that conclusion when none of the screenshots are even labelled? lol there is literally no way of telling which pics are from which console. absolute fail of an article, although i shouldnt be surprised since its from gamersmint.
You don't need to see them labeled to figure out which one is the inferior 360 version with low res textures. PS3 version is on par with PC.
^ Hahahaha PS3 version on par with pc...you must be high.
LMAO @ The Clown.
You're delusional. Put down the Meth pipe.
Are you 8 years old or something? You should forget about gaming. If i was you i would make learning the english language a priority.
im just wondering why it has to look THAT bad. to me it looks worse than bad company 2. or maybe its because i've been playing pc games for the last year and have gotten use to the higher quality. uncharted 3 and dark souls are the only 2 games worth getting on consoles unless twisted metal turns out to be awesome
@admiralthrawn - I agree that it looks worse than BC2.. And I've been playing BC2 for a while non-stop recently since I've been so pumped for BF3. I play BC2 on 360, but I played MoH on ps3, so I have the ps3 BF3 beta. I'm honestly shocked by the graphics. The gameplay is great and the action is tight, but to me the graphics resemble Medal of Honor, rather than Bad Co. 2..
People disagree with me when I say this, but I actually thought BC2 was a fantastic looking game on consoles.. not all textures were perfect, but the lighting was awesome and the character models were great. All I've seen im my 45 minutes with the Ps3 beta are low res textures, jaggies and pop-up.. (i actually haven't noticed any screen tearing which I've heard others complain about).
I'm really worried that this game will be a mess on consoles and a PR disaster will ensue for EA/DICE.
Crysis 2 all over again
Comparison of just the PS3 & 360 versions gets posted... PC elitist come in and desperately try to make their platform relevant.
I think they are still mad that there aren't any games on their platform, well except Starcraft 2. :D
and Diablo 3 Red Orchestra 2 End of Nations Firefall Swtor Guild wars 2
There are lots of games, okay not as many mainstream games as the consoles, but there is more than enough games on the pc, and yes i own a ps3 too. Also Pc elitists =! pc gamers. Every platform got idiots.
For all the ignorant people calling the shots. PLAY THE DAMN GAME FIRST! Ive played the beta and it handles better than any FPS out there. Who cares if the graphics on console aren't on par with PC. It's still an amazing game on all platforms. Play the game an you'll see. It's already goty for me based on a beta.
I saw one of those screen shots on another article: the top images are Xbox and the PS3 images are on the bottom.
BF3 will be better on PS3 and MW3 will be better on 360. This has turned into a Sony and EA VS MS and Activision battle. PC version will look better of course but the average gamer don't care because they can't afford a super awesome gaming PC.
360 gamers shouldn't buy this game at all it looks like rubbish. MS should have EA delay the 360 version so that Dice can clean up this graphic mess. If 360 gamers don't buy it will ruin EA and Dice quaterly earnings and will send a message that 360 gamers won't buy your rubbish.
OK...read the article.. Tell me which is which.. They effectively look the same. You won't notice that difference when you're playing..
1) it's a beta. It's to test performance and server stress, not graphics. 2) there is only so much that can be done with the xbox hardware. If it's not to your standard then buy a PC or PS3 because it won't get any better. Give the final version a chance though and make a decision based on that.
Funniest thing about this comparison: People can't tell which is which.
While I agree that graphics don't make or break the game...I ****ING can't STAND SCREEN TEARING!!! I hate it so much... Seriously lower the shadow quality or poly count or something...just give me a stable frame rate with no screen-tearing.
Pc version wins!! Console sucks!!
i think the smoothness and more realistic looks of the guns can say it all. PS3 looks better to me...
These still shot comparisons are pointless, these comparisons in general are pointless. If you only have a 360, the game will look awesome to those gamers, same if only have a PS3, & having both, I imagine many will do same as me & just buy it on there preferred machine (mine being PS3 for the controller & free online play) & will never bother worrying about comparisons in favor of just enjoying the damn game. If morons buy the 2 or 3 versions & sit around eating copious ammounts of fast food, skulling softdrinks & looking at the differences in all three's visual fidelity, then that is just sad.
I'd like to hope 99.9% of people are gamers & buy the game to play & enjoy the game, not nit pick 2% graphical differences so as to strengthen there pathetic arguement that there preffered platform is possibly better.
Hopefully the game will lead with high level gameplay 1stly, then graphics & the rest will fall into place. Resistance 3 shows how a game running at half COD's speed, (30fps) can have just as good a gameplay/controls as a game with double the frame rate......in fact, Resistance 3 is near a better controlling game than the COD's, & actually reminds me of Timesplitters, awesome, fast paced gameplay.
PC and PS3 version is the one to get. 360 no thanks low hd, low textures lol.
the bps3 version is amost the same as the 360 verison if not the same the pc version is a generation ahead of the console versions by the way both console versions have equally low resloution textures because they have the same amount of RAM the ps3 just have a little more horsepower which means it could look better in the lighting and particles departments texture quality is dependent on RAM get your facts right before talking out of your arse would you ? the 360 actually has a little more ram because the framebuffer is tiled to the edram and the 360s OS has a lower memory footprint than that of the ps3. Aside from this both consoles run sub_HD at 1280x704 with the 3670 version using FXAA(the console version of FXAA which obviously isn't as good as the pc version) and the ps3 version using MLAA
The Xbox has 512 mb of accessible ram for both the GPU, and CPU The ps3 has 256 mb of accessible ram for the gpu and 256 accessible of the CPU. So yes and no it has the same amount of memory. The method to access it is totally diffrent.
360 does not suck, to be fair.. but its inferior to PS3.. sad but true!
From how I am reading it I think the 360 version looks better. Over the first picture it says 360, over the next PS3, so on and so forth. If I am reading it right the 360 looks better IMO, but if I have the 2 set mixed up then it’s the PS3 that’s better. HUMMM? I do want to know before I preorder whatever version.
Do pc users even play games? or do they just boast on how good they look. I feel sorry for them.
I thinks it is funny that because 1% of the pc player are graphics whores and trolls, everyone thinks that all pc gamers are like that. Thats like saying that all console games are like 12year old kids who thinks that halo is the best game ever.
Another console-only gamer that's butt hurt that current consoles have peaked, for consoles games to look any better than gears3/uncharted 3 you just have to wait for next gen.
Who's butt hurt? Im fine with games right now. I was fine with how they were 10 years ago ill be fine now and in the future. If anything pc users are butt hurt because the only thing the pc got going is graphics. If it werent for mods pc gaming would be even more dead. Also what new hot games you been playing lately? Any good pc exclusives? Nope.
I'm eating PC trolls bubbles, hope everyone does the same, i'm tired of the "PC wins!" comment that nobody asked for.
Pc gamers are elitist graphics whores who pay through the nose for the latest graphics. Not gameplay. Graphics. Console only gamers are inexperienced to the games that only work on pc such as rts. All round gamers get the best of all worlds. I have beaten all of the trolls this site ever produced and attracted. Including it's creators. True gamers over you fake asses any day.
Um, PC is getting 64 players which equates to more intensive gameplay.
