doesn't look as graphically perfect as it was originally shown, but still fantastic nonetheless. I really hope I get the money for an upgrade on my computer, as I been waiting for so long for a true Battlefield game

ok, is this the 360 / ps3 or pc version ???

or do we have to guess

PC version obviously. I wish my 360 would allow for that visual splendor haha.

This is clearly the 360 version, PS3 is not capable of that kind of graphics.

My first thought is that these come from one of the console versions of the game because of the downgrade in visuals, but then I noticed that the resolution of these shots is 1080p, which the console versions will most definitely not natively run at. So either it's the PC version of the game and the visuals aren't as amazing as initially expected or these are pre-rendered from the console version of the game at a higher resolution.

*Disclaimer* I could be way off lol

looks better in motion

Screen shots are so 1998

First couple shots look like console screens, but the rest are def. PC. Love the third and last shots especially. I like how you can almost tell a story by looking at some of the screens.

These are directfeeds from the PC version is my guess.. Because they are so scharp you can tell "flaws" much easier then in some grainy video or indirect feed.. Also remember that games always looks better in motion..

The consoleversions look more grainy because of the lower resolution with less to no AA .. That graininess plus you sitting further away from the screen will hide a lot of the flaws..

Personally I prefer the PC version easily.. Much better graphics (higher resolutions, AA and DX11 support), bigger maps, and better suited controls.. It's no competition for me really.. These are also the games I'm willing to upgrade for and spend another 300-400 euro's on a new videocard..

From Kotaku:
"If you're expecting this to look like the PC version, or even close to it, you'll be disappointed. It's clear the console versions won't come near the kind of fidelity the PC in 2011 is capable of. But that's OK, and totally understandable: the PS3 is, after all, 2006 hardware.

What I liked about this mission's visuals, then, is the decision deveopers DICE took with what they were going to compromise. The PS3 version is jaggy, noticably and unavoidably so, but what it loses in clarity it makes up for with the full range of effects. All the smoke, fire and clouds of dirt that bring the game world to life were there and looking great, and at the end of the day if things have to compromised then that's the way I'd like it to shake down.

Better a jaggy and exploding world than a clear and sterile one!"

I have to agree with you on that one, especially the first SP footage of the guy getting out of the Hummer and then running down that alley.

@IRAIPT0IR You should be whipped for that naughty comment! ;)

Not as mind blowing as the trailers, but still impressive. It shows how different the game is in action with all the stuff going on around you, and flat screenshots.
Now it's waiting for MS and Sony to play the beta.

If i didnt blow all my money on lap dancers and hookers i'd be able to afford a PC to run this game :(
Commented on 2011-09-16 15:18:01
Damn it, I got friends on both sides so I will probably get this for both my PC and 360. oh my poor wallet.

    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, HDR is really awesome. But like with VR, it can't be shown in images or videos, you need to check it in person. Try all the games you can, it might give them a "second wind" for you. (7 minutes ago)
