Battlefield 3: PS3 graphics demo will set record straight on console version

By Updated on

We know a lot of you have been cautious about the fact that we’ve yet to see a console version of Battlefield 3 up and running, but that’s all set to change as EA DICE will be showing off the PS3 version for the very first time on Jimmy Fallon live this Thursday evening.

If you have been tuning into his shows this week, you’ll know that he is having a special ‘video game’ week, having already shown off Gears of War 3, Modern Warfare 3 and now Uncharted 3. He will be the first one to lift the lid on the console version of EA’s upcoming shooter – exciting times.

If you tuned into E3 and watched all previous gameplay videos for BF3, you’ll know that we have only seen the PC version so far, and despite how amazing it looks, some of you are a bit skeptical on whether the graphics quality can be reproduced on console or not.

Time will tell though and we can’t wait to see how BF3 handles on the PS3. EA DICE has already stated that there will be some limitations on the console version like multiplayer player count, but we’re hoping the visuals are there or there abouts. Are you planning to tune into Jimmy Fallon tonight? Let us know your thoughts on the PS3 visuals for the game – do you think they will be on par with PC or not?

    Tbh, you’re playing yourself if you play this game on anything but PC.  The Frostbite 2.0 engine was designed to really utilize PC hardware.  Consoles simply don’t have it in them to really take advantage of the engine itself.

    Not trying to start a flame war or anything, but DICE has been stating this game on PC is going to stomp a mudhole in the console versions (though, that’s pretty much true for any game, really).

      except ps3 exclusives they stomp a mudhole and any pc game period

        Well, that’s really a matter of preference honestly.  As far as actual performance goes?  No, there’s no way the PS3 can go toe to toe with a gaming rig.  It’s a decent machine, don’t get me wrong, but there’s just way more going on under the hood of a gaming rig.  Sony definitely has some great 1st party devs though, which makes owning a PS3 worthwhile, simply for those games (because they’ll never be launched on PC). 

        But make no mistake, if they did release on PC, they’d actually perform better there, but you’re also talking machines that have 3-5x as much processing power, RAM, etc… as the consoles.  At least.  Just basic numbers, PC’s have more of ‘em.

          maybe just maybe if your talking about a supercomputer as your gaming rig youd be right, but not the pcs you pc fans brag over all the time and if your comment is coming from the perspective of looking at multiplats as saying that than your wasting my time commenting me as multiplatform games dont guage ps3s power in comparison to the “almighty” pc.

          its a decent machine? really? so thats why rocket scientist the military and cancer research have all benefited from ps3, not only that but supercomputers have been built from the cell processor alone.

          yes theres more going on under the hood of a gaming rig like figuring out how to sort out all os and memory usage with things in the background not much else though

          ps3 isnt no console, if they would release on pc they would perform better, atleast ps2 games would i have no proof pc could do top tier ps3 exclusives, but im sure they could do multiplats, 3-5 times as much processing power? thats impossible to say about a ps3 since the architecture never gives you official specs as well as there are no finalized specs for ps3, not only that but only games that aim for photorealisim look good on pc pc is HIGHLY overrated in comparison to ps3 as internet talk guides people to believe especially by the statndard of how ps3 exclusives look as theres no reason ps3 exclusives shouldnt be able to release on pc since its “all powerful” and so many times more powerful than ps3

    They will be good, as BFBC2′s were good, but they won’t be anywhere near the quality of the PC version. Anyone expecting that on 6 year old technology is deluded. 

    I just hope it plays as well as the previous iterations.

    Just cause BF3 is being ported to consoles doesn’t mean it’s going to be a rubbish game, or look rubbish, or play rubbish, or whatever! Still going to be awesome and the best looking game on the console. Won’t even be able to notice much difference between the console and PC versions!

      Nah, I didn’t say it’d be rubbish, but the differences will certainly be night and day.  I’m sorry if you’ve never had the privilege of utilizing/owning a high-powered gaming rig, but, I do.  As well as a 360, and a PS3 and an HDTV.  And I can tell you unequivocally that PC’s are hands down vastly superior.

      And just so you don’t think I’m blowing smoke up yer backside, I own console and PC versions of the same game (yes, that’s right, I actually paid for both).  And have done side by side comparisons on my own.  To put it bluntly, GTAIV runs like dogpoo on console, when compared to the PC version.

      I agree to that not going to be no difference maybe just the player count but going to be the same game,, awesome

    Remember that the limited console hardware does not need to render at higher resolutions than 720 or maybe 1080.

    Noticed that the BF3 multiplayer video can be seen from PS3 store. Releasing that for general viewing and not being able to give buyers that quality later… hmm…

    What if that really was PS3 generated?

    This will be an interesting night!

    Well, I don’t want to start a “PS3 is better than 360″ war here, but on the consoles, PS3′s version has the potential to look much better than the 360 because the PS3 is generally more graphically intensive. Regardless, PC beats consoles every time because PCs always get upgraded with the latest and greatest tech, while consoles are set out with advanced tech, then get brought to bay and then left behind when PC catches up and goes further. My only true complaint is… I’m now going to buy a beastly rig to play BF3 on PC.

    I saw a video of Battlefield 3s multiplayer beta, and I was a little dissapointed to see that the XBOX 360 version looked better than PS3. In my eyes, the 360 version looked more polished and more crisp than the PS3. I was really hoping that the PS3 would have an edge over the the 360 but from what I saw, unfortunately it didn’t.

  • CLKBOOM

    The video I watched was from youtube and the guy did a split screen comparison between 360 and PS3.
