    Apparently Putting Doom 3 On the PS3 is hard, also info about the new content

    id Software has trouble porting Doom 3: BFG with 60fps on PS3, more details about its new content | DSOGaming | The Dark Side Of Gaming


    Now this is really shocking. It appears that id Software has trouble porting Doom 3: BFG with 60fps on Sony’s platform and that was revealed by guru John Carmack himself. When a fan asked whether id Software would include some new graphical effects to the PS3 version (like DoF), Carmack said that getting Doom 3 BFG to 60fps on the PS3 is more challenging than most of us would think. Carmack blaimed stencil shadows for it as they are ‘raster pigs’. And obviously, Doom 3 BFG will not include any new graphical features. PS3 gamers, there is no reason to worry though as we bet that Carmack will find a way to overcome those issues.

    PC gamers, on the other hand, will be able to use all those great looking mods (like Sikkmod 1.2) with the BFG Edition of Doom 3. When asked whether id Software was interested in offering a graphical overhaul for the PC, Carmack did not comment.

    Tim Willits, on the other hand, unveiled some new information about the new content of the Doom 3 BFG Edition. In an interview with TheVerge, Willits said that Doom 3 “Lost Mission” will put players in the boots of the Bravo Team. In case you are unaware of, Bravo Team was the company of space marines that were originally sent to save the scientists in Doom 3.

    As Willits said:

    “The Lost Mission begins with one of the Bravo Team members waking up in a Wraith kill room, and having to help a group of scientists shut down a teleporter to Earth, before the demons invade and ruin everything.”

    The Lost Mission will take place in the same timeframe with Doom 3′s story, and will help fill in some of the game’s gaps.

    Doom 3 BFG is currently planned for an Autumn release on PC, PS3 and X360!


    cant wait for doom 3.

    the way the cell processor is terrible, It is completely different than all the archetectures out there right now (devs hate it but are forced to get used to it.)


    if you can't get john fucking carmark to port stuff well on the ps3 (this is a guy who ported a version of rage to a iPhone) there's something wrong here.
