BF3 PS3 graphics poor

@Chalky yeah but you'll be at a disadvantage to all the mouse nerds!

I could hold my own in fairness. Would rarely finish bottom and would normally be in the top half of all the games i played.

how do you manage it, seriously the analogue sticks are crap.

Fine for me, I enjoy the 360 pad, just mess with sensitivity etc to get the right feel.

I'm exactly the same!! I hold my own with a 360 controller on my PC if I play online, although I play a lot of single player stuff where it isn't as critical.

Plus for me, gaming is about relaxing on the sofa (gaming HTPC hooked up to big telly). I sit on my Wideload backside at a desk at work and have no inclination to do that when I'm at home gaming :)

I must admit to being a bit thick when it came to BF3; I saw the TV ads and was like this is awesome! Then I got a copy for the boy' on his Xbox and I felt completely let down by the graphics. It didn't occur to me at the time that what I was watching on YouTube was from a high end gaming PC, I got all excited inside and everything!

You can install hi-res textures on the 360 version, they're already present on the PS3 version, but they do make a difference to the 360 version, when installed.


as said. the ps3 is very old tech and nowhere near as powerful as a gaming PC.

the xbox and ps3 comparisons are usually because devs are too lazy to code both platforms so 1 will always look worse as its fudged and not properly optimised (ps3 exclusives often look better than anything an xbox can do but they are a pig to code for).

pity bf3 isnt a great game. bf2142 was 100x better and not full of rocket noobs and snipers/campers.

teamwork has gone out the window. i havent played it in months. shame.
