Battlefield 3 beta sets expectations for release date

Product-Reviews writes: One thing DICE has made very clear in the last week or so, is Battlefield 3 beta runs on old code and the retail game already has many more improvements than what is found in the beta, although there is still a lot of confusion amongst gamers. Some Xbox 360 and PS3 owners are not enjoying what they’ve seen, and this ranges from graphics to glitches. DICE will want the players to buy the game, but the problem is they have set the expectations for BF3 now, although has that bar been set very low or high?

If the new graphics improvement goes ahead for Xbox 360 and PS3, BF3 could turn out to be a real success for DICE.

Bf3 is on my buy list, on the 360 of course.

For me it will be PS3, although I want to see it in action again first to see if it improved on what I saw at EuroGamer, which was not so good for PS3.

BF3 is on my buy list, on the ps3 of course.

despite what you think nobody gives a damn which platform you will play it for but my vote is PC and if i didnt have a PC it would be Xbox because their social advantage is necessary for games like BF.

Their biggest mistake was prioritizing the PC version, publicly.

danswayuk2538d ago

You're right, the PC version is so much better and makes the console versions look not so good. Maybe BF3 is much better than it's given credit for, and putting the PC version in the spot light made things worse.

that isn't a mistake, BF has that PC focus because that's what it was built from.

the Bad Company where the main console focused titles and I'm sure there was Modern Combat on 360.

I'm happy they are going back to the roots with the game, I won't be getting it on PC because I can't run it but it still doesn't upset me when the console version looks different.

all you need to do is forget about the PC version, the consoles would never look and play the same as that this gen, that's just the way it is, be happy with what you've got, the game still looks amazing on console.

day one pre-ordered for PS3

That wasn't a mistake at all. I love my PS3 and I prefer console gaming over PC.

But this game needs PC to be lead platform. Not only is it where the franchise began, but PCs are so much more capable than consoles and the gap between PC and consoles will only widen over the next 12 months when Skyrim comes out and the new CPU architectures and 28nm process GPUs come out. These new chipsets will be more efficient and powerful performance wise.

The reality is that decent PC hardware is very affordable and that the current generation of consoles, whether Sony and MS don't want to admit it, are nearing the end of the product cycle. (But when you think about it...the Wii U is coming out at a seriously bad time if it will only be marginally more powerful than a PS3/360.)

None of this should be a concern, though. This is an excellent game that should be played by many. Despite the whining, the game looks very good on PS3...and besides it's gameplay is excellent and is devoid of the childish/ hand-holding wankery currently plaguing so many shooters that it makes them all the same.
