After the reveal of five incredible Battlefield 3 screens yesterday, FPS Tribe contacted EA for confirmation of whether or not they were actually in-game | FPS Tribe
I hope next gen consoles will be like that
You could always invest in a PC. Then you never have to worry about what "next gen consoles will be like" because you can play everything maxed with 1-2 minor upgrades per year.
Based on you ID name, you LIE. LOL Anyways as stated DICE has always stated they do not use CGI or pre rendered images to showcase their games. This has been confirmed by the developers, EA and others. Maybe ps3bestever you're upset that a certain company likes to showcase its games USING CGI trailers and trying to pass it off as IN GAME :p
Its the PC version, obviously :/ I wish the consoles could do that, BUT we'll have to wait till next gen.
Well PC games are amazing but they take constant strides forward that are small. When the next gen consoles appear they will make these screens seem obsolete. I'm not saying Console games are better, I play both, but you know what no PC will be able to match with next gen consoles for a while
@Jio I think thats a load of BS. Even when the last gen of consoles came out, most games still looked even the slightest amount better on the pc. You are never going to get the MOST out of a console when its first released. When the next gen comes out, there will be hardware for pc that will match or even surpass that of the console, although it will be very expensive at first.
Well, we'll have to wait and see until the next gen consoles start showing up.
No we wont have to wait and see. It's absolutely fact. For a console to come out with the absolute TOP tech at that time it would cost WELL over a $1000. the top graphics card out right now is over $700!, and thats just the gpu. Think about it sometime why dontchya.
Why are most PC gamers so defensive? I play games for fun, I don't always care about power. Sure I'll be getting this on PC but that's because I know I'll have the most fun on it, not because it has the best graphics.
they're in-game, confirmed by a developer on twitter who said there was a fair bit of tesselation which would indicate its the PC version
Indicate? I think it's pretty obvious its PC.
and they still have months of polish omg
If Dice really does want to beat CoD then they HAVE to start showing the console versions more often. CoD is biggest on the consoles. Having an AMAZING PC version of BF3 won't affect CoD at all. I have a bad feeling BF3 isn't going to sell well on the consoles since they keep focusing on just the PC version.
Do you realize that BC2 is played most on PC? Devs themselves said it. Battlefield is a HUGE franchise on PC, and I guarantee you it will sell like crazy. DICE wouldn't have built the PC version from the ground up in DX11 if they didn't strongly believe it would sell. On the subject of the consoles, it's still early. They have several months to show of the console version, but right now, they probably aren't ready to be fully unveiled. Give DICE some time. DICE doesn't care about beating Call of Duty. EA does. EA reps are the ones screaming about beating CoD, not the DICE devs themselves. They just want to make great games.
PC Battlefield 3 is Battlefield 3. Console offshoots, while they look almost as nice and make money, are not the origins or inspiration of the game.
Battlefield is a PC franchise. Hell, until Bad Company, it was a PC exclusive franchise. Bad Company 2 sold slightly more, and is played a lot more, on the PC. Sure, focusing on showing PC footage might not get them the sales to beat CoD, but DICE would rather stick to their roots as a PC series than abandon it all together and chase on the heels of CoD, in which case there's the chance they might become the monster they're trying to defeat, they'd rather focus on showing the consumer the best version of the game, the true quality of the game. Besides, it's a better marketing strategy showing the prettiest version the most often, and putting a 'PC' tag on the bottom - you would rather, if you were making an advert for Ferrari, flatter them with the $200,000 version of the car in the knowledge that most people are going to buy the cheaper model, than showing the $100,000 version and making less of an impression on the consumer.
That is unreal. I can't wait to pick this up on my 360. However, I might just get it on pc. I haven't purchased a pc game in decades but now might be the time.
Is not going to look unreal on 360. Get pc version.
Let's be honest, it's only going to look like that on 1% of PCs.
and i will buy such a PC just before the game releases :)
let's be honest too , some pc have no business wishing to play the latest and most advanced fps , either way ..
This is the crysis 1 game of this year (witcher 2 as well) you upgrade so that you can run it, and then once that has happened your set for another 4 years or more of PC gaming.
Fishy Fingers Let's be honest, it's only going to look like that on 1% of PCs. were you get them figures from.?
more than 1% a good 45% is a more fair assumption.
They said they are running the game completely maxed on a single GTX 580. By the time this game comes out those will be very cheap. Not to mention that most people will turn a couple of settings down and be fine. DICE themselves have said that if you had a PC capable of running BC2, that it would definitely run BF3. Also, don't pull fake statistics out of your arse.
PC it's the Gold standard again.... until the next gen consoles arrive!
Finally, a reason to use my 5870 at last.
This game will bring a 5870 to its knees
If your doing something wrong then yes , maybe worth crossfiring though.
ya, i have the some one, and honestly, i do not believe the 5870 will be enough to run it smooth...i think we need to upgrade..
it should do ok minus tesselation. that was one of the limiting factors of ati's 1st gen tesselators, they were very very slow. with 2nd gen 6x series the problem is still in performance but not to the extent of the 5 series.
5870 would do fine, probably not on max settings, but fine nonetheless, you could probably get a decent framerate out of the second highest settings. Depends on how well they optimize the game.
on the PC....>.>
It looks in-game so how could people not tell? Have you been staring at the wrong battlefield 3 I have been seeing or have you not seen people in real life for a long time?
so many people getting new pc's just for this game or upgrading thier cards just for this game, same here.
I just upgraded mine, added a 2nd gtx 570 so I will be upset if I can't max it.
A second one, wow I'm sure you will.
I don't need a 2nd one right now, but I have a baby on the way soon and wouldn't be able to afford one after that.
bumnut congratulation's but worry not your card will run this game on max. another video card just takes off the strain adds performance. but card like yours with all them shaders too and cors you be playing in high settings wit 4x AA i have found some unofficial system req. Minimum System Requirements Processor: Dual Core Memory: 2 GB Hard Drive: 15 GB for Digital Version, 10 GB for Disc Version Video Memory: 256 MB Sound Card: DirectX Compatible DirectX: 10 Recommended System Requirements Processor: Quadcore Processor Memory: 4 GB Hard Drive: 15 GB for Digital Version, 10 GB for Disc Version Video Memory: 512 MB Sound Card: DirectX Compatible DirectX: 11
I did. 580/2500k ready to get that baby !
Welcome to the real next gen
nVidia and AMD must be rolling in cash from the influx of people buying high-end GPU's to play this, haha :D nVidia certainly will be rolling in my money once I get enough for a GTX 580.... mmmmmm
Yeah Dice said at GDC they are pushing to make People buy gpus & push PC forward! I swear If there was no BF3 this year it would be kinda meh for shooters! I am getting a Gtx 570 for this!!
Already got me an ASUS overclocked GTX 560 Ti for The Witcher 2 and BF3. Hope I can max it out a 1400x900 using this card since @1080p sounds quite impossible with this sort of visuals!
And I'll be eagerly awaiting the release of Nvidia's Kepler GTX 680 & AMD's Southern Island HD 7970.
Hate This , DirectX11 will make buy new hardware
Oh yeah. So glad I built my own pc recently. 6850 HD, time for you to shine baby!
Aww jeez, looks like i'm going to have to spend a fortune on a new PC. I am so tempted to buy this on Xbox while I save for a new rig though xD
damn thats sweet i hav a craving for next gen all of a sudden bla bla bla pc can do it yea yea yea i dnt want a pc i want a playstation/xbox/nintendo kinda something ill wait though this gonna play da crap outta this game on my ps3
