Most likely I'll be getting it on the PC because I just like pushing my hardware to its limits.
First look at console play. Not as sharp as PC but still looks really good.
DICE devs during an E3 interview said the PC version will not have much if anything over the console versions since the Frostbite 2 engine allows them to use up the majority of raw power on PS3/360 (and at low cost to them).
Yea, I don't expect it to be a glaring difference. Also I expect the xbox rendering to be better than the PS3 since most of the games are made for the xbox first and then ported over to the PS3.
The two main differences between the consoles and the PC is that on the PC you can have up to 64 players, 32 in Rush, compared to 32 players for consoles and the consoles will run 720p @ 30 fps while the PC can run no limit on resolution with no fps limit.
I'm buying it for the PC. Battlefield 3 is going to be my "game of the year".
PC here. BF is pc through and through. Only game ill buy for ps3 is uncharted 3.
I'm a long time Battlefield fan. I am so pumped for this game. Pre-ordered it as soon as I could. I really wish I could get it for the PC, but I don't have a gaming rig. PC gaming, IMO, is always the best. BF2 with 64 players is awesome. And once I discovered Project Reality (BF2 Mod), I lost a whole lot of hours of my life. But it looks like they're building all 3 releases from the ground up instead of porting them so the Xbox 360 version I'll be playing should be solid. Plus, I recently traded Black Ops for Bad Company 2, and what a great decision that was! Playing BFBC2 just makes me more excited for BF3!
You're saying half the amount of people on the map is "all the same"? Did you ever play BF2...???
I will on PC for sure.
I am a terrible person because I am so late to the BF party. Long ago I got BF:BC on PS3 (rental) hated it. Bought BF:BC 2 on Steam yesterday, with DLC and Vietnam for less than a ten spot. I am F-ing furious with myself for trying the first one out on PS3. I missed out on some great shit.
Dice have said PC version will be treated as a pc game should. Im not saying they wont give love to consoles but they wont make the same cock up Crytek did with Crysis 2.
from what a friend has told me its going to be awesommemeeeee
sorry double post
PC all the way, my 360 is in a box collecting dust since I got sick of the shady Madden series (only played console for sports games)
Maybe PC and 360. My friends will be getting it for 360 so i know i am getting it for that. I will hopefully be building a new PC around Christmas time so I might spring and buy it for PC too.
Yeah, I've played every Battlefield game created except Modern Combat for 360. 16v16 is more than enough. I remember the throwback days of BF2 and how hectic shit was roaming around with so many people in a server. It was fun but just because it was fun doesn't mean it is necessary.
I loved the 64 man servers, caution was an understatement. 32 man in BC2 works, the maps are designed for it, but every once in a while when I'm on a server that is 28 max or 24 max, the difference in intensity is majorly different.. just takes a few people to change it.
Not everyone likes the chaos though, the CoD people think BF is slow, and it is in a sense, but much more chaotic in my opinion, as where CoD is fast past , and very insert 50 cents arcade style.
happens a lot
I agree with you here. A lot of CoD players can't handle the change of pace from BF to CoD which makes them say "BF sucks". We all like what we like. I prefer realism over # of players.
i'm jealous , i'll admit it
i think they invited mostly euro, from all the leaks i've seen, i don't recall any being american.. not to say there are no americans in alpha
Damn it feels awesome. Only one map as yet set in a park but it looks stunning even more so than Bad company 2. So glad they brought the prone position back that was omitted from badcompany.
blah blah blah, ya ya.. haha I'm stuck working on getting my kdr to 2 on bc2 i guess
Haha sorry pal
no longer jealous, just got my invite
Nice one matey! Go engineer
