The first PS3 footage of Battlefield 3 was unveiled earlier this week. Some people were satisfied while others were left disappointed. Nevertheless, PS3 gamers should be glad with how the game looks.
buy uncharted 3 if you want best graphics on consoles. U3 gonna be best polished and best visualy impressive game ever created on any console to date!
Im happy with the graphic. If people thought they was the console versions will look like the PC version then they need to rethink. I just hope the gameplay is amazing.
Battlefield 3 looks great for a multiplatform game the game is one of the best looking multiplats i've ever seen
its sad that we look at exclusive games like Uncharted, Resistance, Killzone, and expect more from a multi plat game but on the other hand a well renowned developer should be able to meet these standards but being a PS3 owner every one should be ready to get the back end of the stick when it comes to mulit plat games but everyone shouldnt be worried about graphics its more of the gameplay that is going to be the real treat and the game doest look terrible but i do understand people who paid for top of the line entertainment system and want the best from there game also every pc player says that *reading the title* but reading all these comments i had the impression pc players where more mature but now my mind frame is that there no different from the stereotypical 360 player @Dart89 THANK YOU everyone thinks this is gonna be the final product
Plus they said that's pre alpha stage wait till we get to alpha stage.
@dart That is the latest build on BF3 and if its still in pre alpha i sure hope they get tehre asses moving Lol the game comes out in like 5 months haha
Nice to see you have the "if it plays the same who gives a fu*k attitude". More people should take that on board.
The game looks great on PS3. I don't understand how some would actually think that the PS3 isn't getting old. Don't get it twisted I personally think that there's still plenty of life in the system and won't be investing in a next gen console no time soon. Console only guys should be happy were going to get to play one of the better shooters this year. Stop your whining to those that are actually whining. Especially those xbox guys posing as PS3 gamers in those threads trying to make PS3 fans look bad. It's really pathetic.
@Prcko ME2, FF13, MG4, etc etc. U3 is beautiful, however far from the best graphically made game.
I think the PS3 footage looked rather good myself.
Totally agree, Enough with this crap, the game looks impressive, when I read some of the comment I feel like the game is unplayable because of slightly downgraded graphics, Cmon people WAKE UP!
Agree too, What is up with these articles? The 360 version won't be PC quality either..In fact the 360 showed off Crysis first and no one complained the PC version destroyed it. I guess I am missing the point here.
The only real difference I could see was the smoke and particle effects. In the PC demo when they were shooting at the walls etc dust would get picked up etc and the destruction behind them was so realistic to the point I couldn't tell it was a game. I think they shoulda had the same player play both the PC and PS3 demo and look at everythng we saw in the PC demo. Maybe then there might not be so much speculation.
Some PS3 fanboys are complaining it does not look like KZ3 or Uncharted 3 or GOD 3... The real issue is BF3 is doing more under the hood than any of those games and for DICE to get the game running on the PS3 the way it is looking is an amazing feat. You have to ask yourself this: If PS3 exclusive games used a game engine like Frostbite 2.0 and had all those effects and graphics running in real time at that scale, would it look like it does? I think you know the answer....
"The real issue is BF3 is doing more under the hood than any of those games" And you know this how??
@Focker I think he meant destructible environments, even if KZ3 and UC3 looked good they barely had it and it was mostly scripted.
I think BF3 looks on par with KZ2/3 myself. It just has a different (more realistic) art direction.
@JsonHenry, you really have no idea what you're talking about. Have you even played Killzone 3 to write such an idiotic statement? I know BF3 does more destructibility and stuff and that eats lots of resources. But you're talking about how they look cosmetically and in this regards the differences goes beyond just different "art direction". Killzone 3 doesn't put much resource for destructibility but when talking about cosmetics there is no more beautiful game than this. Just read about the insane amount of post-processing effects that Killzone 3 has just to make the game look as pretty as current-gen consoles are capable of. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... *Clarification: I'm not taking the PC version into consideration because it obviously trumps everything consoles have to offer with higher res textures, frame-rate, resolution, shader effects and other stuff.
@death2: you don't know anything. Games like Uncharted, Killzone and God of War 3 using technologies which are cutting edge to get this visuals. And it's true that the best looking game on consoles will be Uncharted 3. I mean, look up a video in HD and you can't nearly tell if this is movie or a game.
Its not really.. all it has is some impressive visuals and nice destruction physics.. but thats what the engine was based around lol thats like saying red faction gurellia has more going on under the hood since everything is destructible.. everything... but thats not the case...
I'm happy with the graphics that I saw because I knew ewhat to expect...All the people bitching have been trained to expect the same visuals across platforms because devs have been hindering pc development and visuals to cater to console and now they are seeing how a real pc game looks and are crying like a bunch of babies. I'm getting this on pc and ps3, just wanted to emphasize that point so nobody calls me a pc elitist. The visuals on ps3 are fine and anyone who bitches doesn't know anything about technology and how it works
And Gears 3 will be the best polished and best looking xbox title to date. BF3 pc all the way!
I don't know why people are making a fuss over its graphics, from the looks of it this game dumps all over the other multiplat games released this year, it looks really fun too. Now I just need to talk my friends into getting this over mw3 so they can enjoy it too. BTW in the article there is a link to a comparison video between PC and PS3. And from what I just saw the PS3 version is pretty close to the PC version theres some slight differences here and there but its damn near almost equal, keep up the awesome work Dice.
Agree with you bro, those people who complain have ULTRA SUPER VISION, they see every pixel here n there /s
Its really smart to piss off a developer. I'm sure they're really happy that they are trying their hardest to make their game look as good as possible for us console gamers. Then you all spit in their faces and tell them its not good enough. They'll be really eager to give you the best looking game next time around. /s Constant complaining does nothing but irritate people and makes them not want to do anything for you. Think before you cry everyone, you're ruining it for the rest of us.
What the hell happened?? They changed the article.
i dont get why people bitch about graphics when the core gameplay and hell even the character animations are the same compared to the PC animation...this is what makes the game...not how many pixels there are on the screen what matters to me is the freedom that the game will give you in terms of where you want to go, how you want to approach a level and how you want to take on an enemy...being immersed in the game is whats should sell you...its still 720p if im correct...fine by me considering that most PS3 exclusives are on the same level
Look at Uncharted 3 and LOL @ death2smoochie Look at Textures, fire effects and etc, MW3 looks Much better Than BF3, technically. Uncharted 3 Will be Best Graphic of Decade, So close your mouth or Shut Up.
Then look at the scale of BF3 and a dynamic real time destructible environment running all real time lighting and effects in high floating point precession...Then you can LOL Technically? LOL MW3 effects are all pre baked and calculated and scripted. MW3 has no tessellation support so its textures will not even look the same. Btw. MW3 is using a game engine YEARS old. You fail at trolling. Oh and when any of those games have a dynamic environment that has procedural destruction in real time, come talk to use.. Oh then again based on your history of posting and your ID name, forget about that.... edit @Wicko You even know what I mean by high floating point? Its in reference to Eye Adaptive High Dynamic Range Lighting. And the PC versions run it at higher FPO than consoles. Always have. consoles run it in FP10 MAYBE higher to FP16. PC's run this in FP32-128 or greater. I have an idea what is going on "under the hood"
I don't think either of you understands what going on under the hood of either game. "High floating point precession"? "MW3 looks Much better Than BF3"? Please stop talking like you know something. That said I have pre-ordered both games and they both look amazing. Can't wait.
Nope you have no idea. The SPEs and PPE in the PS3 support double precision (64 bit). Of course it's really up to the developer to decide whether 64 bit is worth it, which in many cases it isn't. 128 bit floating point is even less useful in rendering currently, maybe one day when we have high enough resolution displays where we'd actually need that kind of precision we'll actually use it. But at 1280x720? 1920x1080? lol. Having super high precision not only isn't necessary, but it's also slower, so you'd get worse performance.
Im still looking for this mass of complainers......mountain out of a mole hill i say. Dice arent even first party. Edit Trust me, i call bullsh1t
So am I. Everyone seems so pleased with the PS3 footage it makes you wonder what all this talk is about? Then you get sites jumping on the bandwagon saying, 'Oh PS3 owners you really should be grateful you know' and I'm sat here thinking, WHERE ARE ALL THESE PEOPLE?
To be honest i was hoping too see a longer ps3 footage...
Dice > Crytek > Treyarch I think Battlefield 3 looks great, but the 360 is holding the PS3 version once again because of the disc limitation. I think Dice can put so much more graphical capabilities and use more high texture polygons on the PS3 versions. Unfortunately,the dev and publisher wants it to be on equal terms so both consoles are going to be technically the same. @death2smoochie Of course the disc limitation has major part of on it. With a massive game like battlefield 3. High texture graphics base off frostbite engine requires massive amount of data to produce a more realistic graphics and life like environment.
How much better you think the PS3 version will be over the Xbox360 version when both lack DX11 features such a Advanced Tessellation, Shader Model 5.0, Advanced Compute Shader just to name a few etc? This has nothing to do with disk limitations. This has to do with GPU/CPU and memory and bandwidth limitations BOTH the PS3 and Xbox360 suffer from. @Focker "The real issue is BF3 is doing more under the hood than any of those games" "And you know this how??" So Uncharted and all those games I have mentioned have procedural destruction? They use ALL real time lighting and effects? None of them do. All destruction in those games are scripted. All the lighting is pre calculated etc. Read digital foundries discussion of those games and its engines....
Battlefield 3 is on a dvd and it wipes the floor with anything on PS3 or 360. Disc space has absolutely nothing to do with the limitations of the Ps3 or the 360.You're just trolling.
What about the cases where the 360 has been the determining factor in the downgrading of game during development? Final Fantasy XIII is a great example - content was cut from the game due to DVD9 limitations. L.A. Noire was meant to have a load more content but since it was already on 3 discs for the 360, there's not much more they could've included. So it was scrapped. There we go... It wouldn't be wise to say disc space has "nothing" to do with it, because it comes into play on more than one occasion.
FPS games = snore. Dark Souls and Skyrim for the fuOking win!
Lol who cares which console version looks great and which game for what console looks best. Im gonna experience the hell out of it on mah pc and I recommend everyone else to do so. Sell ur kidney if needs be :D
do anyone think that ps3 have low performance because it multi with x360 ???? because 100% if x360 have the same result of ps3 that would mean yes so blame x360 for that( as always with multi games ) not complaning about old console because easily killzone2/3 have best graphics with fantasy world. yes our console(ps3) will reach to it max max in 2012 but we are in 2011 and this game did great jop before releasing so respect it duty for us as real gamres. i am not fanboy but come on ps3 exlusives gave a huge result (not just graphics matter ) that all multi impossible deliver it or reach it. I was hopping a 60 fps but of course not thinking about native FHD if the gameplay is huge and give big freedom graphics last think that gamer will afraid about mgs4 as example not high graphics but do u think it possible than 40gb game to come to x360 ?? just saying it will be in 6/7 dvd make it redicilous. in the end this opinion and respect urs.
Battlefield 3, the very game you are talking about will come on a single dvd for PC. Disc space has nothing to do with the quality of these games. The extra space on a blu-ray disc is utilized to make up for the PS3's slow disc read speed by using redundant data. The answer is no the 360 isn't holding back the PS3 on multi-plats.
pc can handle high comprased files and install bigger than 20 gb and consoles can't handle big comprased files so big storage make it possible and i mean blu ray however not bad at aaaaaall
what about xbox gamers imma lil worried now.
I dunno what everyone's complaining about. BF3 looks on PS3 looks pretty awesome.
Well I think BF3 looks pretty damn good considering it's a multi. Leaps and bounds better then the precious one. And also better than MW3. I also like the gameplay better too. I mean u can't really compare a multi to a console specific game made for just one system. Multi games have to balance out between the systems to make them look as close as possible.
I am happy whats the problem? Oh I see, you should of changed that to PS3 fanboys. Saying gamers make it seem as if every PS3 owner has the same thought like the fanboys.
Im so sick and tired of all the lazy devs, who fail to takea dvantage of the POWER of PS3 - blu-ray, Cell processor,RSX reality synthesiser. Theyre just scared to use the full power becuase they know it would make the game look lame on xbox and PC
the ps3s cell will be utterly destroyed by a core 2 quad so what do you mean a better cpu isn't needed ? you ps3 owners need to realize that technology didn't stand still because of your console. technology has come a LONG way since the cell was created. core 2 quad>ps3 cell. even a core 2 duo e8400 will DESTROY the cell in EVERYTHING except video editing which the spus are designed for. don't let computational power figures deceive you remember that the ps2 cpu had twice the computational power as the xbox yet the xbox cpu was STILL more powerful ? computational power is just 1 out of SO many parts of cpu architecture. if the cell was the future intel would have something of that sort out today instead of i3,i5 and i7. do you know that the ps3 utilizes static branching which sucks compared to what core 2 duos from several years ago utilize ? do you know the ps3 cpu using in order exectution which is a stone age architecture compared to what core 2 duos from 2006 use ? I bet you didn't. the cell is just VERY flexible and thats IT its not nearly as powerful you think it is. majority of console gamers know NOTHING about technology its not the number of cores its the strength of each cores that counts. fewer superior cores are better than many inferior cores. the spus aren't even cores by the way just vector units designed for graphics operations, physics and stuff like that doing AI on spu is actually VERY difficult(not impossible though) did you know that ? because spus don't have branching resources and Ai is branch heavy to top it of the ps3s ppe using an outdated branching method. the spus shine in some thing but totally such at general purpose computing which is why a ppe was included. the SPEs are NOT all powerful and the ps3 only has 6 available to game developers not the 8 originally mentioned. the rsx lol is NOTHING to write home about why do you think sony first party studios never talk much about what its doing ? because it SUCKS completely. nice again technology did not stand still because of ps3 get that into your ignorant brain would you. some of you ps3 faboys are just delusional lol and by the way blu ray does NOT have processing power its just MEDIA storage it simply holds the game. even BULLETSTORM(a 6gb game) on pc maxed out looks better than ANY of your precious ps3 exclusives. did you know that ? and to us pc gamers bulletsorm is NOTHING lol look at crrysis the game is just like 6gb YET the environments are bigger than that of all your ps3 exclusives COMBINED and it has true destructible environments and STILL blows away anything on ps3 in the graphics department lol ps3 is a piece of sh*t compared to pc lol just like the 360 is storage media isn't the most important thing PROCESSING POWER<RAM AND MEMORY BANDWIDTH is what drives a game and all console are lacking in ALL these departments. The ps3 most be the most overrated console in the HISTORY. ignorance is destruction. PC FTW!!!!!
I thought the PS3 visuals were great... the only problem was the morons who believed that it could look as good as it does on a high end PC.... and let's be honest, most people KNEW it wouldn't! It's 6 year old tech.... yes it is only just reaching it's full potential and still has some more power not quite tapped.... but a new high end PC is obviously gonna be better than either PS3 or 360... just the same as a new PC will be better than a 6 year old PC. How about the moaners who feel the strange need to compare things all the time just compare it to the other FPS's on the same console? And when they are doing that... the rest of us can just enjoy the games and leave the idiots to their idiocy! Sounds like a good plan to me!
Lol, BF3 looks mighty fine. Its a multiplat. Even Ps3 exclusives aint always 1080P, just a very few. Did anyone bitch at Crytek like this because Crysis 2 were SUB HD and suffered from pop ins, flat textures, flat "3D" objects (floating bottles etc) and jumpy frame rate? Maybe IDK, but compare both, and to all Multiplats. BF3 looks awesome and most people on here would agree with me Im sure. And if the guy who bitched at Dice plays Black ops then EPIC FAIL.
Blame the 360 everyone.
Maybe they just wanna save a lil somthing extra when the game launches, i have seen many game alpha build and final finished product be quit an improvement. And sometime they even wait till after the release to patch graphics. Now i'm not saying graphics are everything, but i feel it's PART of "gameplay". So far what i have seen is pretty impressive. Day 1 for me,
HAHA some of these comments are priceless. "The 360 is holding back the ps3" is a always a welcome addition to the other retarded opinions. Strange that the ps3 kids say xbox fans are always complaining but I NEVER see one or multiple articles for that fact, stating "xbox fans unhappy with..." Sad PS3 kids. Just face the sad fact that your precious ps3 isnt and cant keep up with a PC. Xobx fans realize this and dont whine at every opportunity because their version isnt "the best" or doesnt live up to their expectations.
Lol. The line between whining and complaining is often blurry. ;) If you catch my drift.
good one, jack.and i actually am happy with ps3 footage.
Lol graphics dont matter i thought ,lol you guys are the most whinny people in the world.
LOL. I'm sorry... but if anyone is saying "graphics don't matter" it's the 360 fanboys. When sales are better on PS3 it's "sales don't matter". When graphics cannot be matched it's "graphics don't matter". When exclusives are nowhere to be found it's "exclusives don't matter". FLIP FLOP! FLIP FLOP! It's funny because back in 2006/7 these were the arguments 360 fanboys were using to spite those who supported Sony. And the only reason these arguments are used today by PS3 fans is to rub it in their obnoxious, hypocritical little faces.
Go get your head checked I will pay
Give me pure reasoning why I need my head checked. After all, all I'm doing is bringing to light what has all but been swept under the carpet by people like you. You love to put all focus on PS3 fanboys and how 'illogical' and 'wrong' they are, but forget that 360 fanboys are either the ones spawning these arguments in the first place, or saying things equally as stupid! No my friend, it's people like you who need their head checked for validity, or not - it's your choice. Why are you offering to imburse anyway... Wouldn't you rather spend it on games? :P
I'm starting to think that these "PS3 Gamers" who aren't happy with BF3 are just a myth
So where are all these PS3 owners complaining about graphics. Most people I see think it looks great, and I agree with them. I see more Xbox owners just trying to fan the flames then anything to be honest, trying to build this into something its not, just like one of these clowns above me. Ha, out of his last dozen comments, most of them are complaining about PS3 owners complaining. In one or two he actually talks about a game he likes. If you're listening DICE, keep up the good work. Real PS3 fans dont care if the game doesnt compare on paper to PC specs, we dont expect that. If it looks good and plays smooth and is no different content wise, why would anyone give a sh*t if its not 16xAA at 4000p?
im very satisfied with the way the game looks its gorgeous . im a sony fan to the fullest and its embarrassing to hear these people complain ( if they even are ) it also saddens me . i look back 20 years and i see how far weve come in gaming . we are fortunate to have these great games coming out and to have these spoiled kids complaining is just baffling . but llike i said anyone with a brain knew that it would not run at 1080p on consoles . so what? it still looks dam good and very similar to pc
1. How does BF3 get dogged for not running at 1080p when UC1,2,3, KZ2, KZ3, GOW3, Resistance 1,2,3, inFamous2, GT5 blah blah blah will not run at 1080p and they are PS3 Exclusives? 2. seriously what PS3 game looks better than BF3 PS3? maybe 4 or 5 PS3 exclusives and that's it but BF3 dam sure beats the hell out of COD. 3. out of the 4 or 5 PS3 games that beat BF3 do any of them have real time large scale destruction? Hell No! 4. is the PS3 a PC no so therefore why would you expect it to do what a PC does? don't be stupid. 5. The Cell processor can not cure cancer, resurrect the dead, walk on water and it dam sure can not beat my Intel Core i5 2500K, 8GB DDR3 1600 ram, Gigabyte 560ti GTX 2 1000mhz SLi set-up therefore BF3 PS3 looks awesome great but not PC God like. Your Honda Civic can not do Ferrari numbers plus BF3 looks better than Haze so STFU!
bullestorm pc max looks better than anything on ps3 so why are you even going as far as comparing battlefied 3 pc to ps3 exclusives ? a core 2 duo e8400 will destroy the ps3 cell in EVERYTHING except video editing so why are you going as far as comparing it to an i5 ? COMPARING YOUR PC TO A PS3 IS LIKE COMPARING A LION TO A PUSSY CAT. and your rig doesn't even use the most powerful hardware out today. please don't insult your pc like this again.
I don't see what other people see,BF3 on PS3 looked great to me. Not PC great,but anyone with half a brain knows that is not possible.
