On a game like this, there's input lag for the PS3 version? That's horrific. Especially since EA/DICE said that Activision has their 360 game (COD), and they had their PS3 game (BF3).

Input lag on a FPS is a day one no no imo.

I don't get input lag for Battlefield 3 on my PS3 but i heard that some people do. I saw a video on youtube with almost half a second delay on input which was just awful.

I can't wait for Battle-recorder though :-D

SilentNegotiator2324d ago

Okay, if it's such an issue, can ANYONE tell me what the latency is? I can't find any real facts anywhere. So many games these days get called out on the ps3 version for "horrendous input lag", but no facts get presented.

CarlitoBrigante2324d ago

Input lag on PS3? Never heard complains about it. Why did this get approved? When did PS3 gamers complain about the lag in BF3?

I have clocked in 231 hours on the PS3 version and I never had lag.

Marked2324d ago

Carlito, it seems to be a result of defintion and monitor. For people that only play on the PS3, it is easly overlooked or adapted to. I play on both PC and PS3, plus BF3 is not the onnly FPS I play. Trust me there is input lag but, like I said the player can adapt...usually takes me about 3 to 5 mins to get my aim on.

Man I want Battle-recorder
, Hurry up DICE!!

Download fraps you can record all you like. Dont need to wait on them to provide you a recorder lol.


Its a resource hog yea, but space naa i dont think so.

Nitrowolf22325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

Fraps takes up so much space!!!!
I know it's wishful thinking, just want something better with as much quality, yet not use up so much space

@ Above

Hmm, IDK I always end up with 1GB per minute. I have a large HDD, but I have used other recorders that almost have as good quality with far less consumption.
Are there certain settings you have? Reason why I don't like the big files is typically I bring my stuff in Sony Vegas/ Pinapple/ or some other editing software and the rendering can take some time

DoomeDx2325d ago

battlerecorder has nothing to do with Fraps.
Its a spectator mode
you can play back your games, and fly around like a spectator

fraps cant do that

BlackKnight2324d ago (Edited 2324d ago )

That is the only way to do it Nitrowolf2. I do the same thing. 1080P at 60FPS gets me about 1 min of video and takes 4GB for me.

I bought a 1TB hard drive though for recording (at the time only 80 bucks, a WD Caviar Black too). Then I edit and make my video in Vegas, compress it (yes this takes forever but it makes a 50GB video become 1.5-2GB video), and upload it to youtube.

The good news is Vegas and Premiere and others are slowly adding support for letting the GPU in our computers render video. This can be around 20x faster than the fastest Intel processor! So a 1080P 30FPS video that is 12 min long used to take 2-3 hours to render depending on your CPU, but now can be done in as little at 6-10 minutes.

BTW, on topic, Battlerecorder is like Theater mode in Halo 3/ODST/Reach or in COD:BLOPS/MW3. It records the matches data and movements, and then REPLAYS it. So you would have a BF3 match that went awesome, you goto battlerecorder, you play it back, with the camera angles you want, with time slowed down or sped up where you want, no hud, etc, and use fraps to record and make a much more professional video.

Hell yea i took out a jet with the usas with the 12 frags(yes i know the cheapest combo)but wish i could have saved that moment:(.

@Endoran bored with your$60 map pack already??XD.

T9002325d ago

Dam the game has been out for so long, PC and 360 users been enjoying since the start. Why is it PS3 gets shafted on the biggest games of the year?

This year its been BF3, Skyrim of the top of my head.

sovietsoldier2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )
