CVG: Ever since Battlefield 3 was shown off on PS3 there has been some spicy back and forth between DICE and a section of the FPS community.
I wish it had keyboard and mouse support. @FLuffydelusions What if someone does not have a good enough PC for BF3?
Would be a nice addition but I don't see it happening. TBH though if I'm playing on PS3, I'd rather just use a controller. If I wanted to game on KB/M I'd just use my PC.
dice is looking for more flame... just shut up or dont say that sht, so far theyve told us it wont, half players, less enemies on screen, etc. just let it go itll be good ofcourse anyways
i don't much deference between the 2006tech PS3 and high end modern PC versions with a casual look. IMOO the only deference that matters is the 64 player mode on the PC. edit: i plan on getting the game for PS3 and PC, but what will i need to ply it at the same level as the PC demos?
I'd rather not gamers with controllers should play against other gamers with controller M/K vs M/K ds3 vs ds3
The game will be great on consoles.
"will be very similar" yeah I don't think so but it doesn't matter, the only thing that matters is gameplay!
I don't see why they shouldn't implement it on the PS3 version..... unless they want to keep it on par with the 360 version.... sigh -_-
if they make it MOVE compatible! trust me...MOVE make wonders for fps on PS3! please DICE, just make it happen already!
im tired of people saying "2006" tech cant do this and that, well 2006 tech maynot have done 64 but it has done (and no im not gonna say MAG) 60 online before remember resistance 2? Battlefield 3 is gonna be a good game, honestly Dice is just trying to keep Battlefield 3 name in the air and hype around it long enough when all they need to do is just release another never before seen gameplay vid and they good for another month
lil Titan, mag looks like poo and isn't even full dx9 and is no fun to play and only has a few hand fulls of players left online. In Australia it's practically dead. Bad comparison there son. MAG is a $20 bargain bin game these days. EDIT Just sounds like DICE trying to stop the PS3 fanbabbies from crying and just buy the damn game. Good carrot for the asses there DICE lol.
ps3 version will be 1060x640 0xaa or something like that. The pc version can be 6000x5000 64AA and shaders and what have you not. So don't say the ps3 version looks the same as the pc version because it's saying pong and uncharted are the same.
BF3 runs full res on PS3, well, sort of. 1280x704 with MLAA (they use black bars to fill for 720 - 16 lines): http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... And well, Dice, add one more PS3 gamer asking for Move support. Please, make this happen.
get it for PC lol. And no - it'll be good on PS3, but still a full generation away from the PC version. what a misleading title from a misleading site
I once gamed on PC and never saw the big advantage to it, other than graphics. With this game however, there is a difference. Player count and larger levels make the PC version the clear winner in this case. I wouldn't say it's a full generation ahead though.
If that's a full generation, no wonder nobodies in a hurry for the next consoles! Not much to look forward too! Not enough to fork out $400-$500 for! If I'm getting a PC that does everything a PC does, plays/encodes HD video, and has these great graphics in gaming, that is totally worth $700-$1000. But a new console for this small upgrade, and this is practically the only game that is much different than its console counterparts aside from AA and res.
It will be similar to the PC on WHAT settings? Standard? Max?
Lower than the lowest settings
the only thing that is low, is your trolling!
At around $50.00 http://www.amazon.com/Eagle...
Eagle eye sucks. At least read up about it before recommending it. It doesnt work. Xim3 is better but thats mostly for the 360.
@SkittlesLikesPopcorn It has 4 out 5 stars with 60+ reviews on Amazon. Forgive me for not reading about it.. :) Is there a lag issue? have you used it? Thanks!
Eagle eye Is a good product. Never experience lag.
Why do you even need that? I thought PS3 support mouse and keyboard.. just developer needs to implement it. UT on PS3 supports mouse and keyboard..
I've played FPS on my friends PC and I prefer the controller. I dont know maybe bc I've been playing with a controller since the beginning of consoles. I also found it harder to play on a controller then with a mouse and Keyboard or I should say aiming with the mouse. Pointing to where I wanted to shoot seemed easier then using my thumbs to aim on my dualshock. Or maybe he had it on easy setting for me bc I was a noob on his PC.
If you were playing ai probably. But say that again when you play online and you get lit up within .5 seconds of popping your head up. Gameplay between pc and console is night and day. Its 10x faster. I saw a kid who dominates cod every round go 1-9 when I built his brother a gaming pc last saturday
That was always a turn off to PC, the ease of point and click......i would think its much easier to point and click than to aim with analog sticks. But practice makes perfect thats why a gamer with K/M would have an advantage on PC K/M vs K/M, and a console controller gamer would have an advantage with controller vs controller
if people on the dice/bf3 forums requested mouse & keyboard control config in the ps3 version im sure they'd add it.. it's possible but it's down to the devs. I personally dont see why all ps3 devs dont just add that control scheme to all games, i'm sure it would attract alot of new customers who like the look of exclusives but hate using control pads
IMO all games should have customizable control set up! And should have the choice of views! First person, over the shoulder and 3rd person!
lol console gamers only are used to control pads so whats the point of buying a console if ya hate control pads.
It looks great to me DICE, I already have the special edition pre-ordered for my PS3. I don't care about all the back and forth crap going on between grumpy community and them.
All PS3 games support mouse and keyboard google: Eagle Eye PS3
@theonlylolking its exactly what i was about to say, ive been a BF player since the bf1942 beta(yep, even a year before the wake island demo) and i cant see myself upgrading my pc before at least 2-3 years, so i would really enjoy a M&Keyboard support on the ps3.....since its up to the devs to allow it
Its nice of them to say that but the PS3 just cant hang with a built PC. I can see all kinds of differences in the footage. I mean cant they add smoke to the guns report on the PS3 or what?
Anyone know if BF3 is getting playstation move support? I'll take that over mouse and keyboard. Its nice because I can hold the controller down while sitting, or hold it up while sitting or stand up and/or move around the room instead of being in a fixed position sitting at my computer. plus my ps3 is hooked up to a giant hdtv and surround sound unlike my PC, so to me its not worth getting on pc since Id rather have the full experience for my set up
OVERRATED. Yes, the combination owns in games not optimized for gamepads (nearly every PC version of any game ever), but there are plenty of gaming PC owners who opt for controller support when it's properly integrated. Example: 1) Using a controller for Source games = stupid and you'll get destroyed. 2) Using a controller when playing games LIKE CoD against keyboard players = a more balanced playing field than you'd think. High sensitivity coupled with sticky aiming over a target virtually removes any perceived KB+M advantage. Support for Keyboard and Mouse on console will become normal if game consoles have enough features to warrant a more conventional PC interface. Until that time, no game needs it. On topic: I believe DICE will do the best they can with the time they have. They strike me as a developer that takes pride in their work to a point they would take it personally if one of the versions didn't live up.
. So have the rez and half the multi-player equals HALF the game. It should be HALF the PRICE...O_o
Its not half a game, its one of the best games on PS3 and Xbox, it would have made more sense if you said that it should be double the price as (at least on PC) it is double the game.
These guys probably need to quiet down for a while. I'm sure the game is going to be good, but statements like this will inevitably be misread by many.
How so? without the beautiful graphics, smaller maps and no 64 players? I don't THINK SO! lol I'll stick to my PC version. PS3 i still need to play my uncharted 2.
How on earth could it look similar to the PC version at all? Have Dice forgotten that the GPU in the PS3 is even older than the one in the 360?? Unless they plan on using tons of software rendering to make up for the lack of hardware rendering capabilities then maybe?
This is bullshit, screenshots from PS3 demo show that even buildings etc are completely different, PC will outshine the consoles on this game, no debate on this.
Dont worry bout it man, i think what Dice are tryin to say in some sort of tactical way is this PC>>PS3>>>>3 60 You cant come out and say "the PS3 version will look BETTER than the 360 version" can you, so you try the reverse psychology route, every mofo knows the PC version will own, and thats the point, the PS3 version will be "similar" (2nd best) to the PC (1st best) Oh and Red Eye? i am most hours of the day
I think we should read his comments in context; he's not talking about the few people who have top end PCs that can run this game on max. The majority of people don't have a PC that could push BF3 beyond what you would get from PS3 (aside from the maps and player count). To get what you're seeing in the demos would be quite costly; I don't think it's possible to build a gaming PC for £250. That said I am looking to build a PC and expect to spend between £1500-£2000 (for everything).
okay. If you spend 1500-2000$ for your gaming PC you will waste your money. 800-1200$ Will run this game maxed out and is way MORE than enough. You dont even need that high end gaming PC. 600$ PC will run this on medium settings np. Look up Dices recommended video card for this game (not minimum) its the gtx 460. Thats not that high end. Curtis posted a really good guide you may want to take a look at. You can game on PC on any budget. http://i1002.photobucket.co... Anything "Great" or above should play BF3 on good settings.
DICE havent actually stated the minimum reqs for BF3 yet. However lots of sites are saying that the demos so far have all been shown on a single GTX580 so that would be the GPU i'd go for. Also the price is for everything, including monitor, kb, mouse, OS etc.
I'm sorry that's bogus...my ATI 4850 can run BC2 and Crysis 2 on medium just fine at 1900x1200 (or whatever that resolution is....I don't know these things but it's the second highest my monitor can do and it can go up to over 2000 x something) I've got a quad core CPU but I don't need a 5770 or whatever it is
But he forgot disk drive, keyboard and mouse, and Windows.
If a GTX580 is the card Dice uses to demo the game, it means most likely means that that's the card that'll run the game absolutely flawlessly, which means no hiccup, no slowdown, no stutter, minimum 45-50fps, vsync enabled, max settings on 1080p or higher. I think unless you are rich you should be content with running a next gen game with 30FPS with some bits of slowdown here and there.
.......In terms of gameplay.
in terms of gameplay? possible. in terms of graphics? I highly doubt it.
In terms of graphics. - No. In terms of gameplay - No. Or did you miss the part with larger maps and 64 players vs 24 players? If you want the full experience buy a PC.
having larger maps doesn't mean having more fun (better experience) per se; I've played BF2 maps where I had more fun with fewer players on the small version of the map. just saying ;) anyway, I'm getting this one for PC whatsoever.
give me the money and i will :) ..
DICE have done nothing wrong here. they aren't the ones making nonsensical news titles and submitting them into the gaming pit of the internet
Did anyone expect the PS3 to match the PC version. Come on I think we knew that wasn't going to happen. Battlefield 3 on PC looks amazing, I don't have a PC so I'll make do with the PS3 version...least I'm getting something and not a crappy port.
Perfect comment, at least DICE are optimizing the game to best suit the systems strengths instead of just porting it.
How is Sub-HD, missing geometry, limited destruction (hit boxes), and actually looking worse than Killzone 3 pre-alpha being similar to PC?
Hey DICE, Shhh!!!
Good, PS3 only users can get BF and have fun, and 360 only users can get the new COD, and we'll all see what sells more and has better overall scores on meta critic. What are the bets, and who's taken some?!?!!?
I'd bet money BF3 gets a much higher rating on meta critic.
Well, it's not money, but come and take part in the bet here on my site. BF3 vs COD http://showtimeforfree.com/...
Lol at the COD being 60 FPS. On PS3 half the games are 40FPS most the time and fluctuate making the game less smooth than if were at a more stable frame rate. Even on 360 the games are rarely 60FPS.
Cod is pretty much locked at 60 fps, or like near that. I'm not a huge fan of COD anymore but that was one of the things that made it so popular on console.
Good God, DICE how many times are you going to keep talking about this? Just stop...make the game. Stop talking about it...let the fanboy hysteria die out now.... come Oct when you release your game build the hype machine back up then. DICE just seems way too pre-occupied now trying to defend this version or that version. Its just a friggin huge mess from a PR standpoint. Frankly DICE, you should have just shut up and told EA to shut the fuck up too and make a great game. If its truly as great as you say then it will have fantastic sales...end of story.
Maybe they are realizing that hyping up the PC as their lead platform lost them a boat load of console sales. And now they are trying to backtrack. And does DICE realize that some of us still care about gameplay? Stop the graphics talk. I own a 5-year old console and i'm getting less graphics. You are not tricking me. Now show me more console gameplay footage.
@fullymoated... DICE absolutely is in full on PR Spin mode. The screwed the pooch big time in how they approached this. BF may have been a big PC gaming series a few years back but BF has been absolutely driven by consoles in the recent years via BFBC 1-2 & BF1943.
It may have been driven by consoles lately, but that doesnt mean they arent allowed to have pc as lead platform and show it off. If it wasn't for pc there would never be a Battlefield, so it seems only right they show respect for the pc gaming community and show their game off a little. I do believe that they sort of went about doing it the wrong way, but you can't blame them for being proud of their lead platform version.
@caboose32 I have no issue with them being proud of the PC version or even showing off the PC version. That all said, they should have understood who their audience truly was going to be for this game and crafted a better message for the game. And when I said who their audience truly would be I mean who ultimately is going to buy this game the most. console sales more than likely will dwarf the PC sales... Anyway, I just want to see DICE/EA focus on making the game and stop all the smack talk
