EA and Dice are showing live demonstrations of Battlefield 3 and the footage is blowing the minds of viewers. Steve Papoutis, Executive Producer of Dead Space 2, saw a live demo and shares his impressions.
i cant wait to get this for my PC.
I can't wait for the next gen game that's using the time machine
GIIIIIVEEEE US THEEEE GAMEPLAAAAAY! C'mon DICE!
Relax dude, it will be unveiled at GDC March 1st
I think Battlefield is more a PC game, don't get me wrong I loved BC2, but 1942, BF2 they all bring back PC memories, it would not be right If I didn't get it on PC ^___^
@ loVe I agree that BF games play better on the PC, but i did have a ton of fun playing BC2 on the xbox360, it didn't feel 'broken' in any way, superb game.
Same here. I cant believe how excited I am for this title. And as for the console vs the PC, the PC version is going to be the one to get. But playing BC2 on the PS3, I never felt like it was gimped or anything, it's just as fun as the PC game. Except now that I've been playing the PC version daily, I cant go back to the PS3 version. No AA, 30fps, and screen tearing kills it for me now.
Can't wait to play it on PS3.
UR NOT QUAGMIRE! YOUR SAMURIA JACK!
Samurai Quagmire?? Now there's a scary thought.......
LOL @ THE PC ELITISTS DISAGREEING WITH QUAGMIRE I'm also buying it for the PS3! :D
the second one managed to look a lot better on the videos than what it actually was on the pre-release vids it look like killzone but then it was just a little better than call of duty with destructible enviroments
its true, and fanboys disagree with you but lets hope this one is on the killzone level of quality on the ps3. and lets hope that they mod the maps to make it better for 24 player because in bc2 they were to big and it was plan boring most of the time.
Second one? I think your confusing Battlefirld with Bad Company. I assume, your a console gamer.
I'm torn between my new Core i5 760 2.8 Quad @ 3.8Ghz on Asus P7P55D-Premium board 4GB DDR3, with Asus 5870 1GB @ 900mhz/4900 on 24" 1080p MS236H or xbox360 on 50" 1080 plasma laying on my couch. Since I haven't played any games on pc in a long while and I tried BF:2142 after a few years it felt so awkward playing with kb/m and coudn't control it properly. I remember playing for months on and pwning people in BF:1942, Vietnam, BF:2 and 2142 but now it seems alien. I was even invited in one UK based clan even though i'm in Dubai. Anyway,i'll let the demos of the pc, 360 decide it for me. Anyway, hope they release ht
I would say... hook the Pc to your 50" and enjoy both worlds. You can also use your 360 controler on PC with little effort. There is something about a controler that feels more effortless. Does anyone know off hand if there is a way to use the PS3 bluetooth controler on an enabled PC for gaming?
@Marked. yes there is. Look for "motionjoy" It's a highly customizable dual shock 3 tool.. Also works for the six axis.
@ Marked Thanks for the advice m8. I have a long HDMI cable to hook up the pc to the tv and even have my cable 360 controller installed on pc but playing with controller against with kb/m guys will be suicide. I'll still try the demo on pc first and see if i get used to kb/m again ;) I have my EA profile since the begining and i can use it on either pc or 360.
@sak500 really....why...it will be sub-hd, with jaggies everywhere and terrible texture work on console....it's like you like saying you're torn between getting it for the ps2 or the ps3...hook you pc up to your 50" like me and millions of other pc gamers dude...also, there are lots and lots of mods to make controllers work with any game, you'll get your ass handed to your constantly for using a controller against kb/m, but you can do it. do you even have a gaming pc, or are you pretending, did you just get it??
What speed is that ram at? Seems a little imbalanced...
Nice 11 disagrees. boy u guys must be real jealous bunch. @LMS Check my 3D mark 06 score and details. http://3dmark.com/3dm06/149... @distorted memory is Kingmax 1600Mhz o/c 1743 The multiplier is unlocked by the MB so able to set it to 22 x 175Mhz bus = 3.85Ghz. But also using EPU engine software which comes with Asus MBs and automatically o/cs or un/cs the process as and when there is requirment. While browsing it's usually @ 1.5ghz also pic of my TVs and 360s and PC desktop Edit: the desktop picture turns real small via photobucket dont know why. It's wide as i have two monitors linked up, 24" Asus and 19" Sammy.
Homer simpson: Oh my god oh my god oh my god!!
This going to be amazing! All these crappy FPS going to die. RIP COD and Killzone and other generic FPS :P
Why didn't you mention Halo? Oh yeah, I forgot, it burned itself out already.
Dice is one of those developers that really know their craft and never fail to impress me with all their battlefield series. Each sequel is to me an improvement from the other. They, unlike Activision and Bobby, don't want to make a half assed buggy port of a game (Black Ops) so that they can rip us off in order to make quick money. Dice took their sweet time to do a true sequel (5 years in fact) and during that time, us fans were treated with the sweet Bad Company 1 and 2 that I truly enjoyed. Call of Duty is a good series, but lately, it has been lacking innovation, new ideas. I understand that they are sticking with a formula that works, but if there is a better formula out there, someone will go for it. I highly look forward to Battlefield 3!
I cant wait to get this for my Ps3 ....still playing Warhawk religiously. It's the closest thing to a battlefield online experience except for not having the "Modern Warfare" looks, kit, environments, weapons, vehicles.
been waiting for this title for years. Finally got a reason to play a PC game. Now i just need Diablo3 and CS 2 and i will be complete.
The shots in the game informer look badass.
How about showing off that there demo to the public?
now thats what i was thinkin
at GCD march 1rst
@raw word bro
tired of fps shooter
This isn't just any military shooter this year, it is THE military shooter.
I got my GI issue last night and all I can say is this game is going to be INCREDIBLE!!!!! The level of detail for the damage alone is way beyond BC2.
LOL, wrong thread for that comment. Try socom 4 or spec ops for TPS, socom 4 looks pretty solid... no 1 or 2 but still hopefull.
tired of pointless comments
...tire of "ground base" and confined fps shooters? Not so with Battlefield2....will be epic in its scale.
"tired of fps shooter" Same here but this is BF we're talking about. I skipped COD: BO because, honestly, at this point, fuck COD. And I'm getting KZ3 mainly just to have a tech demo to show off my home theater to friends and maybe for a little of online play. But BF3...like someone said, this is shaping up to be THE FPS. I'm onboard. Let's roll the DICE!
@ugo You're tired of First person shooter shooter?
"Battlefield 3 is being developed with the PC as the lead console " God damn it, Examiner. Can you guys ever get anything right?
Lol, they were close. They meant platform.
More like lead system of platform cause my PC is not a CONSOLE! Battlefield 3 is not a GAME, it's a way of life!
pc is a console you nerd, disagree all you want but its i have seen many times devs saying such a thing and they know better than you do.
AKA, do you not know anything about anything? And really? You're calling me a nerd? I see we have a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.
Yeah the PC gamers are nerds comments aren't getting old, you guys want to try something new? And what about people who play both? Where do we stand? What exactly about PC gaming makes it "nerdier" then other ways of playing games? I guess it's acceptable to make assumptions about people based on platform of choice. How grown up.
They are charging 10 dollars to play online....when you want to sell the game it will be hard to get rid of....No thanks EA and your bull.
wtf are you on about lol
I think hes talking about the VIP pass. And why would you want to ever sell BF3?! Whats wrong with you! Battlefield is a game you want to hold on to...
why would you want to sell it in the first place? dont tell me your another COD guy.
I thought that Online pass thing was only to give you the free DLC? Buy it new, get full game. Buy it used, get everything except the free (for new buyers) DLC. That's how it worked in BFBC2, is it not?
The 10 dollar online pass is for when you buy an ea game used because ea thinks it's not fair that people get these games at lower prices and they still pay to run their servers at full price. Just butthurt people who don't know what they are talking about are saying things like snuka is.
I had a hard time trying to sell battlefield 2 because the fact is you have to purchase a online pass....IF you buy it used....im not going through that again.
Just wait for one of those Steam Holiday sale, then you'll be able to buy it for $15 LOL.
no its not, they do give user a free map that was already done and they could add it in the retail copy but they hold on it an make you download it and its not a online pass its just a dlc map that they hide. online pass are in the EA sport games not on the fps or otehr type of games, if you dont have this onine pass you cant play online
@ shack Yea if he is talking about the VIP pass thing then i understand. I did not like the whole idea especially since they continued to recycle the same maps just in different areas. i want at least 8 good maps and all different places
Well, the VIP pass was bad when BC2 first came out but then it all payed off when DICE gave us those awesome new maps for free. I personally like the VIP thing.
I would pay a monthly fee to play this master peace.. $10 is nothing besides who would want to trade BF3 in!
yu don't have to pay $10 if yu buy it new, right?
no you don't.
well then they're doing what they do with other ea games, which in some ways i like, but some i don't. i like the fact that if yu buy it new and support them, yu don't have to pay for dlc. i don't like that the dlc yu get for free is not actually the good dlc, and that half of it is on disc, if they made this better however and corrected these problems, i would have more respect for ea and support them and their games
cant wait hoping this is the FPS to finally rip COD hold on me this or Resistance 3 either or
i cant wait for this game! it dooesnt even look anything like bfbc2!
next-gen gaming is here again!! But pc really had this tech for the last 2 years but still happy!!! bf3 crysis da2 deus ex dirt 3 shogun 2 s.t.a.l.k.e.r 2 (whenever that comes out) all dx11 games.. want more!! Coming off great success with the launch of Dead Space 2, Steve Papoutis, Executive Producer of Dead Space 2, viewed a live demonstration of Battlefield 3 today and it blew him away.
STALKER 2 is looking to be around February 2012 but it may get pushed back to Q3 2012 because of it being ported DOWN to the consoles. trust me I'm a huge STALKER fan and I'm foaming at the mouth to get back into the ZONE!
... Stalker2 faces the similar questions that Battlefield3 was facing earlier; How will it handle it's console appearance. Considering how the Stalker games have always been taxing on the system, it'd be interesting to see how they develop their new engine and how well it can scale between the platforms. Then again, I've always slapped on a few mods with the previous games, so as long as it has SDK for PC, I'm anxious.
So you guys think this game has what it takes to own CoD, I due , but some people just love mediocrity .
my PC can't run Street fighter 3rd Strike :(
time to upgrade?
