The first PS3 footage of Battlefield 3 was unveiled earlier this week. Some people were satisfied while others were left disappointed.
In my opinion, PS3 gamers should be glad with how the game looks. When I first watched the YouTube video in HD, I did not notice the differences between the PC and PS3 versions. To me, both of the games looked awesome no matter what version was shown.
It wasn’t until a saw a comparison video of Battlefield 3 on both the PC and PS3 did I notice some slight differences. They’re not major, but I shouldn’t think PS3 gamers should be too picky.
There’s a lot more detail and lighting effects shown on the PC version of the game. Not to mention the buildings in the background look slightly more realistic than on the PS3 version.
But in all honesty, you have to be nit-picking to actually notice the differences – especially comparing the footage on Youtube. It’s not like comparing the PS2 version of WWE All Stars to the PS3 version; those differences are instantly noticeable.
Disappointed PS3 gamers should also not forget that the console is based on 2006 technology. Although the PS3 is still able to produce mind blowing visuals, it simply cannot match the raw power that a high end PC made in 2011 can produce. I’m sure EA used a very powerful PC on maximum settings to showcase gameplay of Battlefield 3 anyway.
To me, both versions of Battlefield 3 look awesome no matter if it’s on the PC or PS3. I’m sure when Xbox 360 footage is released, it too will be similar to that of the PS3 version.
As a console gamer, I’m satisfied with the visuals that both the PS3 and Xbox 360 currently produce. I have not bothered to upgrade my PC since 2003! I admit I’m just too lazy to send my PC to a professional all the time just so it can keep with playing the latest games. At least with consoles once you buy it, there’s no need to upgrade it all the time. I may miss out on impressive visuals that a high end PC offers, but I save a bit of money as a console gamer since there’s no need to purchase upgrades.
Anyway, PS3 gamers should not compare the PS3 to a 2011 PC. Sure Battlefield 3 looks better on PC but it’s not a fair comparison to make in the first place. PS3 gamers should be glad the game looks the way it does. The worst that could happen is if it had PS2-like visuals! I’m a PS3 gamer and I think the graphics in Battlefield 3 still looks awesome.
