If you have played the multiplayer beta which is now openly available for Battlefield 3, you’ll know that the console graphics quality has been the topic of considerable debate amongst gamers. With this in mind, we have a useful video comparison for you to take a look at which shows both builds of the beta on PS3 and Xbox 360 running side-by-side with each other.
If you haven’t played the beta on either the PS3 or Xbox 360 yet, you should go to your respective marketplace and download it straight away – it is free after all, although it may take some time to download depending on your connection.
You have probably seen some comparison screenshots from the beta from all three platforms since it is on PC as well, but you may not have seen any videos yet. CVG has provided one example of beta gameplay running on the console builds, and it gives you a very good idea how they compare, and just like DICE suggested, there is very little between both versions.
After watching the video below, you may agree that the Xbox 360 version is brighter, and there is definitely an argument brewing on YouTube suggesting that the Xbox 360 version is better. PS3 users on the other hand feel that this video doesn’t reflect their own opinions in terms of graphics after playing the beta, so considering that there are no major differences between the two – it will really come down to a matter of personal opinion.
Is the video an accurate representation on the graphics quality seen in the game? We’ve provided a few screenshots taken from that video below to give you an example before watching. The full version of Battlefield 3 will release on October 25th, don’t forget to check out the beta feedback from DICE here, which lists changes that they’ll be implementing into the retail version.
