Battlefield 3: PS3 vs Xbox 360 screenshot comparison

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. (Battlefield 3, PS3, Xbox 360)

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.

Hey! They forgot to add pc vs ps3 vs 360 pics! This is all out war.
Boody-Bandit  +   1404d ago
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.
aGameDeveloper  +   1404d ago
Besides the (originally) non-labelled images, and the lack of direct comparisons, the full-size images are not even the same size.

Leviathan  +   1404d ago
This isn't a good comparison.
Brosy  +   1404d ago
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.
Gamer1982  +   1403d ago
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.
JokesOnYou  +   1403d ago
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.
Hufandpuf  +   1404d ago
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.
ufo8mycat  +   1404d ago
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.

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.
tee_bag242  +   1404d ago
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.

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.

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!
The_Con-Sept  +   1403d ago
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....

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.

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?

admiralthrawn87  +   1404d ago
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
FunkMcnasty  +   1404d ago
@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.

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.
FrigidDARKNESS  +   1404d ago
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.

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.

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.
402  +   1404d ago
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
SITH  +   1403d ago
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.

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.

I'm getting it on PC because I rule. But if I had to choose a console port it would be Xbox, because FPS's are unplayable on Playstation controllers.
FunkMcnasty  +   1404d ago
I agree about FPS games on the ps3 controller.. Mostly i think its that the small bumper buttons (L1/R1) are the aim and shoot buttons and the big meaty TRIGGERS (I have the trigger extensions)...well they just throw grenades?

I also Have been playing the beta on ps3, and just to use the spotting feature is a pain in the a** because you'r thumb needs to do gymnastics over the left analog stick to reach the select button, which means that, unlike with the 360 controller, you cant spot enemies while on the move.

I'm glad someone else finally said this, because it brings me to a bigger question for console game developers on ALL platforms: WHY CAN'T WE ALWAYS CUSTOMIZE THE CONTROLLER LAYOUT IN THE OPTIONS MENU!? That would solve EVERYTHING!!

I own both consoles so no bias here. My issues with PS3 controller:

1. Stick height and convex shape.
2. Stick smoothness. As you pass the centre you hit a wall, rather than a smooth transition.
3. Sticks are too close together. My thumbs meet in the middle at times.
4. Thumbs need to bend to sit on the sticks.
5. Spongee triggers of course.

Try a 360 controller before argueing any of these. The difference is, MS refined their controller layout twice. Sony never have.

Crap comparison, they both look pretty decent and pretty similar. If I had to say something it would be in the screen shots provided the lighting looks nicer to me on the Xbox version.

I don't even see the point of these comparisons anymore we all know what each hardware is capable of and that they'll likely be too similar for any differences to matter whilst anyone really wanting to have uber graphics or who is just generally an FPS hardcore will go with the PC version anyway.

Personally, I don't care which system its on. For consoles, the price of games keep going up....with this BS about big budget for development and marketing. $60+ a game, and I demand promises to be met.

Game industry is taking advantage of gamers.....ALL COMPANIES! Bfbc3 (and all sports titles for that matter) should be $40 bucks...which is the quality they deliver us. I fon't accept excuses, (game play my ass) graphics, game play, online, and well written games, will always be my standard. I bang on Microsoft for putting a half-assed system out on the market, having the balls to not only charge a high price...but XBL fees too. EA buys up pro football license, and gives the same game every year...FOR $60 YOU SAY?? GTFOH WITH THAT.
codes...so people can't try to trade in a game that failed to deliver (call of duty and halo didn't have that problem, cause they freaking delivered!)

I'm passing on bfnc3 and will play uncharted, gears, and mw3. At least they give quality...not just hype. Hell, kilzone and resistance seem way better than this.

The unfortunate thing is, you think you will be heading toward quality, whereas with Call of Duty and Halo, those are the same damned games rehashed over and over. My good friends who have been Halo and COD fanatics since 2001/2003 are pretty darn sick of it all now.

Yeah, so EA gobbled up some sports licenses and wants to protect their investments with one-time use online codes (the used market where the consumer is always ripped off anyway is where game devs and pubs lose tons of potential profit), but...

What you fail to see is that Battlefield is a superb game. Many CoD players can't just jump into it though because so much more is required from individual players (working as a squad and having specific, delegated roles and such).

Also, this is not Bad Company 3. This is Battlefield 3. Big difference. BF3 is a direct sequel to Battlefield 2, released about 6 years ago.

Your loss, bro. Battlefield is a game that has stood the test of time and has been around longer than Call of Duty in the online multiplayer arena.

Side note:

I've discovered, over time, that those sensing a lack of depth from CoD or Halo tend to migrate to Battlefield. It makes sense. Battlefield provides a similar experience to Halo or CoD but on a much larger and broader scale.

If your sick of halo & cod why keep buying them? Pretty common sense. They've been the same since their first game.

Ive been ignoring those two series since their 1st game it isnt hard people.
