    Battlefield 3 aims to push limits on PS3 hardware

    Those of you waiting for the PlayStation 3 version of the next big bad war game Battlefield 3 will be glad to hear that its creators are not only bringing the game to the PS3 for certain (if you did not know, that is,) they’re also having to push the limits of the console to bring it. And bring it they shall, DICE developers letting the world know that both the PS3 and the the Xbox 360 versions will be competitively polished to keep up with the PC version, the PS3 version in particular getting a double dose of optimization.

    It was in an interview with none other than the official PlayStation blog that DICE Producer Patrick Liu let loose some pointed factoids on the upcoming Battlefield game. There’s currently an open beta of the game going on inside the PlayStation Network, so questions came to Liu from real-live players of the game (through PSBlog, of course):

    PSB:That level you showed on the PS3 was huge, but it was also highly detailed — I saw mirrored floors, reflective surfaces, tons of special effects and physics with a smooth frame rate. Are you confident that PS3 players are going to get a great experience?

    Patrick Liu: Oh yeah. We’re very confident – we’re pushing the hardware big-time. Of course, we have a performance budget that we have to hit. Everything counts into that: the scale costs performance, destruction, animation, special effects…those are all the things we cram in there. I feel really good about where we ended up with on the PS3.

    PSB: There are a lot of military shooters these days. What’s the biggest thing Battlefield 3 is bringing to the table?

    Patrick Liu: It’s a number of things. For a very long time, the core pillars of Battlefield have been the destruction, the sandbox experience, the scale, and the vehicle gameplay. Those are all still pretty unique to Battlefield, I’d say. My first Battlefield game was Bad Company.

    It’s time for war, PS3 fans, massacres before October 25th, the release date for the full game. THis look like the massive blast of war you’ve been looking for?

    This is what the PS3 deserves. Not just a port from lazy devs. The reason many games look better on 360 (Bayonetta) is because they first made it on the low quality standards of the 360 and then just tossed it on over to the PS3.

    From what I've seen of the PS3 beta, it doesn't look that good and the destruction of buildings and some objects are still scripted. So meh.
    Hopefully the full game will actually have organic destruction and look better.

    developers always say that but it looks like their mainly focusing on pc anyway ive been playing this game on pc for beta since im buying it on pc

    the only reason that i could get battlefield 3 for console is to play with friends who dont have good pcs and get trophies pretty much

    I am happy about this as well. Being a Sony fanboy, I'm glad to see the PS3 was given priority over the xbox. I'm starting to see more and more of this nowadays, Portal 2 also getting some ramped up features for the PS3 not present in the xbox.

    I think they toned down destruction in the beta and that Metro in general isn't a map with a lot of destructable buildings. Same goes for the graphics. Apparently the beta build we're playing is over a month old so the final version of the game will look and play a lot better.

    I said this in another post, but due to First Party Distribution rights EA and DICE couldn't release the newest version for the Beta ... this is why the Beta doesn't live up to hype graphically and is full of glitches that have likely already been polished.

    I'm fairly certain the whole point of the Beta was to stress test servers and Battlelog.net and to give dieing of anticipation a small taste of what is to come.

    I suspect the final retail version when it's released will have the polish and meet some of the expectations we've all had leading up to Battlefield 3's release.


    Oh, and thank god somebody finally didn't just port over the 360 version to PS3. I'm tired of their inferior console holding back PS3 versions!

    Only the stability and gameplay of the game should "suck". The look of the game in the beta is more or less the final product which looks like shit.

    I started the beta..and died..but graphically what I saw..I wasn't too impressed. Even tho I died and left (sore loser!) lol. I still didn't find it visually appealing and it didn't make me wanna pre order it. I saw nothing that made me want to consider a purchase. I think people will be disappointed with this.

    I sure hope they improve the graphics a bit more as I thought that it would be a bit better on the graphics department, although not as impressive as on the PC but visually stunning nevertheless. The gameplay however is what I was expecting, the classic Battlefield open map, objective-based, team-oriented gameplay with a little bit of the Call of Duty fast-paced feel so that the transition isn't too hard for those coming over from CoD. I enjoyed Bad Company 2 a lot and I am looking forward to DICE's newest installment in the Battlefield franchise.

    Well, it isn't the first time I've heard a dev say this, but they are more than welcome to give it a try.

    Sorry, but are you blind? I never once saw anything to call those graphics "shit". You may argue that, to you, they look average or maybe even below average (which I disagree with), but they are nowhere near "shit" status.

    I don't personally want to come across as a fanboy, but I agree with this 110%

    Kind of fed up the PS3 gets the shaft on multi platform games when it has alot more to offer, just because lazy devs don't wanna spend the extra time and effort to polish/optimise the game better for the PS3 platform.

    It's really not graphically impressive, on PC it is, on consoles it's nothing impressive at all.

    And that makes them shitty? Shitty means they are bad, horrible, that they suck, not that they ain't impressive.
