Battlefield 3: Xbox 360 vs Playstation 3 (Retail)

From the feature editorial:

"With only one long day between you and the launch of Battlefield 3, multi-console owners are surely asking themselves a single question: Xbox 360 or Playstation 3? While many games on multiple platforms are often replicas of each other, this is not the case with Battlefield 3. There are a number of things to consider which sets the game apart from the two competing systems. As an owner of both consoles and having played the beta (and retail copies) for each, I have decided to detail the differences in the game and choose a winner, at least for now."

PS3 is clearly superior according to planetxbox360.

I like their honesty.

Chuk52124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

He said you should get the 360 version.
LOL,they compared the standard def version. Come on now.

Also, I'm not sure if he's comparing retail or beta.

The article has been updated, check again...

Even PlanetXbox admitted and you are still in denial about this?

here is a quote
" PS3 does appear to be the most capable of reaching proximity with the PC"

The both version runs natively at 720P. btw. Native resolution is different from upscale resolution. LOL, even my TV upscale everything to 1080p..

Love your sad attempt though nice try.

Chuk52124d ago

@Elephant, did you even read the conclusion? Or did your sony boner just go off prematurely and you couldn't read the rest?

lMHl2124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

Wooo Chuk is cool take that elephant u just got a face palm

ApplEaglElephant2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

they said that Live might be better since it might not have server issues. he was GUESSING. he even made it clear about that. LOL

BTw, PS3 and 360 version has SAME servers. Yes, the money you pay for Live does not go to any of the servers.

Again. are you in this much denial about this? SAD. and i can tell you are mad. haha

andibandit2123d ago


No are you for Serial

quotes from the article:
"There was a bit of screen tearing on both sides, though I encountered significantly less on the 360."

"I found the servers on the Playstation Network to fail a bit more often than on the 360, though I did receive “Cannot Connect to EA Servers” a few times for each. "

"As often as I played, I very rarely found a match on the 360 that was not full of all 24 players. Many of my games on the Playstation 3 would max out at 16 players or contain uneven teams. The PS3 also suffered more lag than the 360, with bullets and rockets reaching their targets several seconds late after being fired. In my experience with both platforms, I have found Xbox Live to be much more reliable than the Playstation Network. Once I connected to a game I never once was disconnected during a match on Xbox Live, but experienced only a few disconnections while playing on PSN. "

The sony boner comment made my lunch break.

AntBoogy902123d ago

LOL i'm done @ that sony boner comment.

That was the highlight of my morning.

Winkle922123d ago

Haha, Elephant got pwned. XD
I am impressed by his ability to pull so much bullsh*t out of his ass though...

kikizoo2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

All the things concerning servers, psn, lag, etc are pure bullcraps, they just don't accept the reality and try to find some superior things, pathetic :)

"the PS3 does appear to be the most capable of reaching proximity with the PC despite reaching a 720p resolution as opposed to the 360’s 1080p resolution."

360 = 720P also ( but clearly inferior, if a guy from planetxbox says that, you can believe it xfans)

ApplEaglElephant2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

From xbox fan site.

ahahahaah. i do enjoy all these xbots getting worked up on this.

They somehow think they are getting 1080p BF3. and that PSN and Live are different.

LOL. let me break it to you. Xbox is getting 720P. and PSN is getting same exact servers(like every other games) as Live.

You mad?


AHAHAHAHAH.... something about the server?

this is so sad xbots are all over this.

Again! The same people who said bf3 on pc with ultra high graphics doesnt matter are fighting over which console version looks 1% better....

Seriously, go with the platform that most your friends play on. Thats what i do when there is barley any difference between the consoles versions.

frostypants2124d ago

I have BF2 on the PC, BFBC2 on the PS3, and will get BF3 for the 360 (well, first anyway...might get the others too). How's that for covering all the bases?

Brawler2124d ago

Exactly im getting it for pc sadly it still rapes my i7 and ati 5850 on max :(

Septic2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

I've actually abandoned my friends to get this on PC :( I'm sad I know but having played the beta on all three platforms, it was a no brainer which one to get it on.

BF3 is THAT good on PC that I abandoned my long-standing comrades. I'm sure they'll see the light and join me on PC.

@ frosty- I have BF2 on PC, BFBC2 on the PS3 AND 360 (don't ask) and will get BF3 for PC and possible 360.

AntBoogy902123d ago


If you can afford a 5850.. GET THE 6950!

When i read this article it mkes me think that it's time for people (and more for people working in a webzine) to understand that it is not true 1080p on consoles (there are several exceptions but not in this case) i mean it's not because you have an option for 1080p in your xbox that it's 1080p, it's just upscaled to 1080p.

It's native 720p for both systems. (we don't have all the details for the moment so i guess it is)

1080p for BF3, it's an option that only runs on PC. Doesn't mean the game will be bad on consoles anyway.

jetlian2124d ago

cares if its native or upscaled? still better than 720p

disturbing_flame2124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

It is upscaled for both. So it's not better than 720p; because it is 720p.

If it was native the game would have a better definition, so yes it matters, the textures would be better and the alisaing less present. Man there are still people to believe in this 1080p trend on this console generation...

frostypants2124d ago

Good post, and it's an irritating thing to have to keep pointing out to people. Resolution does not equal detail. I keep having to say the same thing to people who insist streaming HD movies or HD movies on-demand look as good as Blu-Ray. Sure, they have the resolution, but the image fidelity is cranked way down.

jetlian2124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

difference does it make? 1080p upscaled is better than 720p period! the article never said its was native 1080p. And if you don't think 1080p upscaled is better than 720p your blind

hell just test out some games with different res on the same tv, and you will notice a difference.

frosty your wrong. HD and bluray are two vague terms. HD doesn't mean anything. Most industry vets say HD starts at 1280x720 whereas blu ray is 1920x1080. So why would you even compare them when its an unknown what level of HD your dealing with.

Caffo012123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

just to let you know it can be upscaled to 1080p also on just need to disable all the other resolutions in the video output options! but i don't know why anyone would want to do that... native 720p games look better at 720p than upscaled 1080p..

jetlian2123d ago

if you believe that play 480p on a 60 in screen! or 720p for that matter. The real question is what upscales better the tv or the system. Ps3 doesn't have a scaler chip its emulated.

And every game on ps3 that uses it has big frame rate drop.

nycredude2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )


You guys really haven't a freaking clue. Stop making yourselves look retarded. first of all in just about every situation when upscaling a 720p image to 1080p will result in a slightly blurring image. It is definitely better to play at the native resolution.

Secondly ps3 also upscales images to 1080p, as does the 360. However even if they didn't, anyone with a hdtv these will know that the freaking TVs do mostly better upscaling than the consoles!

"Ps3 doesn't have a scaler chip its emulated."

Are you seriously that clueless. Upscaling essentially IS emulating! LOL So the ps3 is emulating a emulation? LOL

jetlian2123d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

just type scaler into google ps3 lacks it. its a chip and if you force it you will get frame rate drops try chaos theory hd in 1080p

Both will be the review in's front page...

UltimaEnder2124d ago

I'll be getting the 360 just for online play...

news4geeks2124d ago

yeah but the 360 controller is really bad and there is no kinect support :(

Virus2012124d ago

WHAT!!! The Xbox 360 controller is way better than the ps3 remote. I loved the ps2 controller (the best) but the joystick is too loose on the DS3 and the triggers are horrible.

If funny I use to hear people say that the Xbox 360 controller is too big for their hands. Then there are others that say that Xbox live is full of screaming 12 year olds O.o.

Either people who complain about the 360's controller siza have T-Rex hands. Or 12 year olds on Xbox live are giants. Pick one.
