Battlefield 3 PC on Low is Console Settings, says DICE

GB: "Well now we finally know the truth. Console versions aren’t comparable to the PC version at all. In fact, DICE has optimized the PC version so much that it towers above the console versions. Also, to run the game on ULTRA settings on the PC, you need multi-GPUs to maintain a 60fps framerate." (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Gee, thanks for letting us know. It's important that we hear the pc version is better at least 459 times per day.

What this site needs is more articles telling us that BF3 is best on pc.

/sarcasm off

There's a difference between being better on PC and the bare minimum PC spec being the same as the console versions though surely. Kind of points out that you really don't have to spend much on a PC to beat console graphics.

There is NO way consoles can match the PC quality. Consoles are old tech now and PC tech keeps changing every now and then. So lets please put the whole PC vs Console aside for a second and hear me out.

Lately, I think that DICE are trying to scream PC superiority because they want some of that COD crown migrating to BF titles. I am not going call it a fact since I haven't played COD titles on PC but from the footage I saw on youtube, PC versions are not that different from their console counterparts even with superior PC technology. It seems that DICE are begging PC COD fans to see that they have done something for them and they made this game for them while throwing the left overs for us console owners.

Ok, DICE, I get it. Can you please move on now? And can the moron who keep posting this sh&& on their site every day stop doing this now? It is not like that we don't know. We KNOW, WE KNOW! We knew it when we saw the Caspian border trailer for the first time.

Last time i commented on this, was because people were saying that you needed a killer PC to beat the consoles.

I pointed out that the MINIMUM spec for BF3 was a core 2 and an 8800GT- a machine and GPU considerably faster than the consoles. Thus EVERYONE playing BF3 on PC, i.e everyone that meets bare minimum spec would be playing a version at least as good as console but in reality probably end up better.

This comment did not go down well and got tonnes of disagrees. Well read the article and argue i wasn't right first time around...
Dark_king  +   1579d ago
@zeeshan Really no way,I can think of a way to make the 360 or PS3 match PC.Its actually not that hard to do,Its this lovely thing called cloud computing.Just think Onlive but using the consoles.However this wouldn't really be the consoles matching PC but who cares about the little details.
Persistantthug  +   1579d ago
@vulcanproject......Pretty much all of the games I've seen that are run on MINIMUM spect PCs...
they almost always have problems.....they usually barely run, if at all.

Battlefield 3 may be different, who knows, maybe they optimized well for these lower end PCs....but typically, games not running well on Minimum spec'd PCs is almost always the case.

For consoles, there is no "go between"....developers HAVE to make those games run, or else.

We'll see how it turns out, but I'd bet that Battlefield 3 on the consoles runs better overall than the typical 2gig machine with 2 gigs of ram and an 8800 card or equivalent.

We'll find out shortly.

Edit in.....Oh...I see you've blocked me. LOL
I suppose I do grate on some peoples sensitivity.
Oh well. Maybe next time, vulcanproject.
Take care.

iamgoatman  +   1579d ago

Well you're wrong again, like I pointed out to you in the last big BF3 article with a comment very similar to vulcan's, seeing as a 8800 series card is pretty much the default minimum requirement for games these days, theres no way a console will be able to outperform it. At the very worst you'll have to put everything down to console settings, so no AA and 720p which is awful for a PC game but still no worse than consoles.

To say theres almost always problems with running at min specs is also wrong. I know this because I own an old PC with a dual-core CPU and a 8800GT, so basically the recommended spec for modern games, hell It even runs games perfectly fine when the min requirement is something higher like a GT260. I can tell you it has NEVER failed to run anything I've thrown at it, and if a game is properly optimised I can boost the res to true 1080p with maybe 2xAA which is something the consoles can't do.

What I think you're doing is overstating how well consoles actually run games, developers have to use a lot of smoke and mirror effects that mimic a PC game at higher settings as to not have a truly enormous gap in visuals. For example as long as the game has roughly the same overall look without anything too major missing, it can then implement the necessary cutbacks needed for it to run properly, so reduced textures sizes, small draw distances, less complex lighting, lower res shadows etc.

The consoles' version of BF3 plays better than the PC. At least you don't have to optimize/update/reinstall 600 different drivers to get that piece'a shit working like it's supposed to.

Buy the consoles version, more streamlined, great online service, and all your cool friends are playing on it while some other dudes are too busy counting how many pixels to FPS ration are happening every second.

"The consoles' version of BF3 plays better than the PC."

HAHAHAHAHA! Seriously, the trick to trolling is subtly and believability, and your comment is about as subtle as screaming as loud as humanly possible, waving a sign with "I'm a colossal idiot" written on it.
vulcanproject  +   1578d ago
After casting a quick glance at the beta performance of people with dual core and 8800GT systems i see they had no trouble at all playing the game on 'low' in 1440 x 900 even with a smidgen of AA and vsync too, over 30 frames a second. 1440 x 900 being over 40 percent more resolution than the console resolution, which also have no AA and a 'soft' vsync that can and probably will tear when they drop frames.

I think this is conclusive evidence that BF3 will be better on PC for absolutely anyone who is playing it even with minimum requirements.

Typically betas perform poorer than final versions too, mainly a mix of last minute optimisations and sorted drivers for the game's launch giving you better performance.

i don't understand people,fanboyism. When a game runs very well on console and pc. The PC users bash the game because of console quality graphics. When a game runs better on PC the console users bash the developers and their game comparing it to their console exclusives which are always superior.

Eg1:-Rage-IMO best FPS this gen.
Eg2:-BF3 & Crysis - Both are kick ass games and also MW3 hopefully.

With 4gb ddr3. Back then there no video graphical options but the game played well looked awsome. still had the edge over the consoles so if medium settings suits you.

pc is better blah blah blah. We get it. But, lets use MOH as an example when you dont focus on whats important, namely, the gameplay. I have faith in Dice to make them all rock, but this game is labelled a COD killer. MOH was hyped to oblivion, then the reviews hit and EA's stock plummetted. I want this game to succeed, but I hope these kinds of hype doesnt contribute to its loss if the gaming sites review and rate a console version. And I mean the big sites that investors take seriously.

Imho the MAJOR difference of PC versus console version of BF3 is the 64 player MP!

A mid spec PC won't be seeing so much difference over the console version BUT, and this is the important thing, even a low spec PC can enjoy the 64p MP

THAT is for me the only REAL difference (and the reason why I'm also going PC low-mid spec, me being a true console player for last 10 years)

"Well now we finally know the truth. Console versions aren’t comparable to the PC version at all."

PC Master Race are not seeking to know the truth, they just need to chew it and then spit it on anybody else's face.

The world NEEDS to know you just got "GTX580 and Ripjaws CL6 Scythe Katana Imperator Hail Forever" because everybody who didn't, sucks more.

The only thing needed to acknowledge this, is the PC component naming scheme which debunks the whole "more mature" audience myth; You can't find any console called "Dominator Commander 3000 Ultimate Pro Cyclone", but the PC crew needs to SLI and overclock to constantly measure their +2fps, and they NEED their pieces named like that, since they're papa boys and they just need to jack off to themselves and what they've been bought 24/7.

It's ok, your PC is better.It's just that you're such a poor lot of winners it's becoming sad.

Couldn't careless about how "amazing" it looks on PC. The only thing that is really bugging me is the 64 player count not going over to consoles. If you want to write 50 articles about that I'd be interested, but this "PC looks better BAHAHAHAHA!" Crap is just annoying. I don't care, console players do not care, and when you say consoles suck your not a real gamer! We still don't care! Really? We can go buy only a graphics card that costs at least half our console and get those specs? awesome....guess what? Dont care!

You paid to have your PC, you paid to have "ultra settings", you paid to be better. Congrats, common sense tells me your game will look visually better. I don't need DICE, 50 PC fanboys, and gaming websites telling me that.

Oh so many misconceptions by console players here about PC as a platform.....

"console has a larger library of high quality games! narf!"

Where to even begin with this one? PC games are made to a higher quality in the first place to keep up with the ever increasing hardware. A low end PC game these days makes a "high quality" console game look like it performs like crap.

"PS3 is more powerful than low end PCS! Narf!"

in 2006 that may have been true but this is 2011 now dear child, technology has come on quite a bit in the last few years.

"you need a $1000000 PC to plays Geams! narf!"

The single biggest misconception of all.....half of the greatest experiences to be had on PC will run on almost any machine at all, you grandmas laptop can run half of them.

Theres also indie developers on PC who make games that could only survive on PC due to console being a watershed market were you have to sell over 3 million to be deemed a sucess.

PC gaming is just better, why?

- better game performance
- servers on all games
- MOD tools (its like DLC from the community thats just better ;)
- Steam sales
- Steam in general
- Games on PC typically have more freedom, due to the extra power
- Developers have more freedom
- open platform
- Use any control mrthod, wheel, flightstick etc
- mapable controls
- Recording software can be installed
- Simple ALT + TAB and your on the internet, or selecting music
- M+KB is a superior control scheme allowing for more complex interaction with the game
- PC headsets are miles ahead with advanced sound
- Map editiors ship with most good PC games
- old games can be graphically enhanced (no more buying HD upscales)
- Backwards compatibility is NEVER an issue
- Free online
- Emulators allow you to play any game from any console on PC from any time.
- Cross game chat isnt even an issue
- Server browsers (so you can see where the server is based instead of getting the BC2 console conveyor belt treatment and being put into a US server while European)
- Games have lasting communities on PC were as console kids jump onto the next game within a month.
- You can rent and manage your own servers on PC
- Servers are often customisable with "infantry only" options etc available
- MMOs are the best on PC, on console they just cant run properly and have the proper scope.
- Larger player numbers in online games e.g MMOs can have 100 vs 100 battles
- Countless simulator experiences on PC, Console games arent even close in terms of simulation, R factor makes GT5 & Forza 4 look like childrens games
- Wont find any flight sims on Console
- MOD communitys often make game series we grow to love on PC, guess who the makers of BF were? a MOD community, thats right on PC

There is a whole bunch of reasons why PC is just better besides graphics.

BUT atleast the PS3 is embracing Steam and allowing users to play cross platform, and it also allows user created content, its certainly heading in a fine direction while the xbox just stagnates in a pool of paying for online.

lol consoles are horribly weak even a single gpu high end pc from 2006 will run battlefield 3 better than consoles even with all the optimization possible on consoles(becausue the hardware is fixed) consoles still cannot come close to matching 2006 pc performance :/ PC FTW

a core 2 duo with a $40 gpu and cheap 2gb ram>>>>>>ps3 /360

There was no pc graphic card more powerful than the xenos gpu when the 360 launch in nov. 2005. Just look it up on wiki. Same with the original xbox with it's gpu.

When next gen consoles comes out they will be more powerful than current high end pc's today. Especially if sony and MS consoles are using 22nm processors built from the ground up. They should be 16 times more powerful than current gen consoles at 22nm with at least 4 gigs of ram. 2013/14 is a good year for release of next gen. Let's all hope and pray we get 22nm processors in our next consoles.
