'This is not a CAM footage like other comparisons. This is direct feed at 720P' GB: "Battlefield 3 was demonstrated a few hours ago on the PS3. So how does it compare with the PC version. Lets check that out below:"
Nice video! Way better quality than the other one.
man, this looks really nice on the console. I am curious how the textures look though. But overall a very similar feel.
How did i know this was going to happen , it's not even a fair comparison condescending that the Ps3 version has to look the same as the 360 version even though DICE can do more .
Even if they could do more, how much better looking would it be over the Xbox360 version from the PS3 version? Not much at all. All the major differences you see from the PC versions can be attributed to DX11, Tessellation. Higher FP for HDR. Higher quality textures. All real time effects...Not just part of the time... Just to name just a few. These features are non existent in the consoles versions...so how would the PS3 really standout over the Xbox360 version then if if can't perform all those listed above like the PC that make the PC version stand out above the console version? The irony is if they make this game for the new Wii and use it's RUMORED hardware, that version would be the closest to the PC
Tessellation is rare...
@sarlucic Every single GPU released now and from last year have Tessellation in its hardware. Even the aging Xbox360 GPU has tessellation in its hardware(1st generation) Enabling Tessellation for games now is more common especially when these games are coded in DX11
yeah enough already , there could hardly do that much better , aside from making it exclusive . And even then it wouldnt be close to the pc version . The comparison here is fair enough , it shows that the game still runs fine and stacks well enough in comparison
It's going to continue to happen. Let's face it, the PS3 and 360 are both outdated (by PC standards,) so it's no surprise that they don't look as good as the PC. It's going to be that way until the next gen consoles come out, but even then PC will always been 5 steps ahead. I wish that weren't the case, but remember that if you want a beastly system it's going to cost you in the thousands. My PC is pretty damn good for a laptop (i7 720M processor, GTX 460m, 8GB of Ram etc.) and I can play Darksiders, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Crysis all in 1080p without issues (not on max for Crysis.) However, even though my system is badass...it wasn't cheap. These new consoles will likely have gigs of ram and have solid video cards, but they still have to be reasonably priced and I'm certain that Sony learned it's lesson from the PS3 and PSPgo so I doubt that the PS4 is going to be outrageously powerful like a PC.
GTX 460M Badass? Seriously?
Well the PS3 version looks good enough for me.
People are looking too much into the graphics comparison where it's the destruction, sounds, physics and so on which are identical on both platforms which matters most. When sitting back on a couch the small little details don't really matter that much to people aslong as they're getting a great gaming experience out of it.
Pc have better light and shadow efects, every thing else looks the same to me..
you are right DICE outdid themselves. But you missed that the PC version also has DX11, better textures, better frame rate, v-sync, better draw distance, better anti-aliasing, better AF, tessellation, motion blur, 64-players, massive maps...etc
They look the same? Missing HD, good filtering and effects; softshadows, DX11 for millions of free triangles added into any scene. A small thumbnail; it might look the same, but on a big screen PC games just have a drastically better level of clarity. BF3 PC is light-years ahead of the console in terms of the processing power being used.
This looks the best graphics on ps3 to me. Sony fanboys will rage disagree but killzone and uncharted can't match this.
I disagree because Killzone and Uncharted do look better. Thats just a fact judging by this footage.
@Baka-akaB You got a point with the destruction comment but other than that UC2 takes the win.
they do look better , but at the expense of insane physics and destruction you wont see there
Are you saying there is no "insane physics and destruction" in Killzone?
are you kidding me ? Killzone is amazing but its destruction is entirely scripted events and leagues behind destruction seen usually in battlefield and red faction titles , period . Do the disagree trigger happy guys even still play kz2 or 3 online like i do ?
Wow, PS3 version looks amazing. PS3 version will be ported to Xbox, so only expect a slight scale down on the Xbox version, but overall all games will look top notch on every platform.
Where's movements? I haven't heard from him since this console footage been out. He usually trolls every battlefield article.....LOL. He must be butt hurt right now.
a better video comparison. Looks pretty good even when its compared to the pc version. Glad Im getting both console and pc hehe.
cant wait to see this bad boy on my ps3 hooked up to my 50" plasma and sound system. online all day baby. dont you worry about that. the mp is guna be friggin amazing.
