"#BF3 is 1280×704 on both PS3 and 360. removing a few lines from 720p saves good perf & memory for us."
Yes, I'm sure the majority of PC players won't be running on ultra but most will be able to manage medium, and even on low it still looks nice. Anyway, I think that most PC games would be happy to shell out a bit more money to upgrade.
The beta did not even contain any high quality textures and it still looked awesome. Not sure how the console beta looked but I'll be sure to look for some comparison pictures when the main game is released and PC games can max out their graphics. :)
I played the first BF game on my PC, and played every other one on it since. The best fun I've had in a online game has always been in a 64 man battlefiled game with a squad of mates. I'll be keeping that rolling with the PC version after a small upgrade. :)
My eyes cant see too much of a difference.
They are not ultra PC images as ultra textures were not included in the beta. ;)
They also appeared here for a similar discussion: http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/b...-settings.html
Fair enough, its still decent enough for a console!! It is comparable to PC on high then...
Which actually worked out well though for me as I could only squeeze 30 FPS max on my PC for the Metro map making it playable. Roll on Christmas for my upgrade!
Shame the 32 man side of it is not cross platform either. ;)
Edit: Interesting 360 v PS3 comparison here: http://www.gamepur.com/news/5503-bf3...omparison.html
Yep 100% PC will look vastly better as well as having 32/64 man where as console is 24 max. Xbox and PS3 are DX9 equiv consoles so the PC is far ahead.
I am pretty sure BF3 will support DX11 features as well such as tessellation which always looks pimp and this is before we get to 3D vision which rocked in BC2.
PC ftw :)
Granted pc is superior...I just hate having to continually upgrade...and BTW, Xbox slim and ps3 are dx10 equivalent...so not too far behind :-)
Also, I'm excited about the co-op! I like a bit of co-op for change so this should be goooood! :)
I am slightly worried though, I've heard a rumour that their seriously nasty web interface server browser will be the same in the full game! :O
See I used to absolutely own on the PC, I spent a good few hours a day on there, but since developing carpal tunnel, I had to stop until I have my operation. I since turned to my xbox and seemingly get much more enjoyment, I haven't rage quit on the console whereas I used to on the PC where people were clearly using hacks but not getting caught by punkbuster/VAC/ACI etc.
I suppose its swings and roundabouts, if I was using the PC more, then I would probably not be moaning, but its sheerly for the fact that it causes so much pain (literally) that I enjoy my console more.
PC wise - since last year I have spent maybe 10 hours a week at the most on the PC/Laptop
Xbox - since last year I have spent up to 5 hours in an evening not realising how much time has passed on there (the mrs will tend to watch if I am playing a shooter)
However, being close to crimbo, and going to Dublin for a week at the end of the month means it may be a hard task getting a upgrade.
Your missus watches you play?! Nice! :) Mine has no interest what so ever despite how much I try to get her to show interest! She's much happier wandering off and watching trashy TV in the lounge, which leaves me free for some teamspeak action. ;)
Also that's another reason why I have stayed away from the consoles. I did have a Xbox 360 a couple of years ago, but I could never get to play it as the missus dominated the TV!
We can all play on the new CS in the new year. That's cross platform. :)
