If you tuned into tonight’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, you would have seen the very first look at the console version of the upcoming Battlefield 3 shooter from EA DICE. Now we have the same gameplay segment from the PC version for you to look at and make your comparisons.
For those of you who don’t know, the gameplay that EA DICE showed on Jimmy Fallon is actually taken from the same ‘Fault Line’ level in BF3, in which gamers were previously introduced to on the PC version of the game.
As most of you knew before watching the PS3 premiere, EA DICE had already stated that the lead platform of the game will be the PC version, and after taking a look at both videos side by side, you can easily see this put into practise. Although the PS3 version is very impressive and easily the best Battlefield title on the PS3 so far, it lacks in detail compared to the PC version, as you can see with the enhanced lighting, textures and character models in the PC version.
However, bare in mind that the footage shown from the PS3 version is still in Pre-Alpha stage, so the visuals are bound to be improved even further by the time October 25th comes around. That is perhaps the most refreshing aspect of the PS3 gameplay since the graphics are already looking fantastic.
With these factors in mind, take a look at both videos below and let us know your thoughts on the graphics for both platforms. Are you satisfied with the level of performance in the PS3 version, or do you think it seriously lacks in detail compared to the PC version.
Note: You probably want to skip to 1.35 on the PC version to bring you to the exact scene as shown in the PS3 version. On the PS3 video, skip to 1.10 for the action and don’t forget to crank it up to 1080p.
