Battlefield 3 For PS3 - Page 51

post #1501 of 1615
Well, after played 4 games with the new maps I have mixed toughts, the smallest maps but with wehicles with "punch" are very entertaining, but I think the light AA vehicles will be nerfed, they are PITA for those who dare to use an helicopter, the armored vehicle airdrop is a very nice add, things happen a lot faster than in the biggets maps, but the Air Superiority is a huge let down, just didn´t liked it, just boring,

Screw this game. Waiting for Battlefield 4 on PS4 so we can finally have 60 fps and a 64 player count like the game is meant to have. I've tried many times to enjoy this game, but it's just so painfully obvious that on consoles, it's a shell of what it should be.

Agreed with above. I am not the best pilot and then first AS game is agains all 100 levelers shooting me before I even made it to an objective. I know I need to get better with jets, so I will keep trying to find a server that has more like level players or maybe just slightly better than me!

CTF and conquest on the new maps was a lot of fun. The dirt bike is awesome! I love that they put all the ramps and jumps in the maps.

The paradrop is also a nice add, though they somewhat already had it in the last update. It is great to paradrop in as support on a hot flag and drop C4 all over it on the way in. I am working on getting my Rambo assignment complete and was able to get a couple of multi kills (4+).

Overall big thumbs up! Still contemplating going PC for the next gen though. When I see the graphics and gameplay on PC it looks like a whole new experience. Anyone else here thinking about this?

Well, I'm not a Fan of AS, your to limited in the playable air space, and I often find my self stalled for so long I have to commit suicide to get back in the game. My take, the jets are great as support vehicles in normal game play, but they are too limit in functions, low ceiling and limited speed, to have an entire game mode dedicated to them.

The problem when a new expansion pack is released, all the top tier players come back for a while, that's just part of playing the game, and I agree, I'm getting destroyed by them as well. I have to find out what this ECM jamming device is, they all seem to that in their load out, on a positive note, playing AS even with out kills you can get points to gain the additional gadgets.

But I do like the maps, they are large, but not near as large as the aftermath expansion pack, which i like, but you can play for hours and I tend to have less kills than on the smaller maps, I seem to be running more than shooting, but then again I'm not one to camp.

I've just recently started playing my PS3 with a headset/mic again, and I have to say, it's makes the game more enjoyable, and I'm working on completing the assignments, so it adds more to the game play. Overall, very happy with the expansion pack, but I'm ready to move to the next gen console, as said above, hopefully the PS4 will be the answer.

I've been contemplating going the PC route for the next gen as well. I did like what I saw during the PS4 announcement. However, I am leaning towards going the PC route since every game I play on the PS3 has a PC version. The only thing I would miss are the exclusive titles from Naughty Dog. I'm really excited for the Last of Us. I was watching a buddy of mine play BF3 the other day on the PC at his house. BF3 is definitely much better on the PC. That was the first time I saw BF3 on the PC in person. I think I would rather play BF4 on the PC then the PS4.

Report back if you decide to build something. I have been out of building computers for so long I am not even sure where I would start to ensure that I had something to reproduce the video and more importantly the sound required for BF gaming.

One of the big problems with "going PC", is the fact that you enter into a very expensive game of chicken. PC gamers have had it really, really good the last 4 or 5 years. Unless you were running a triple monitor setup in 3D or something, you could get by with not the greatest hardware, for a LONG TIME.

Unfortunately, those days are now over with. The arrival of Far Cry 3 late December, and now Crysis 3 and Tomb Raider, are showing tons of PC gamers that it's time again to upgrade. I spent about $900 building a gaming PC almost two years ago. I was fine with my rig up until Far Cry 3, Crysis 3 and Tomb Raider. For me to run those games, I would have to drop my settings way lower than I'd prefer. Even then, the games could be kinda choppy unless I jump to a new video card.

Why not just buy a new video card you ask ? Well, the thing is, I know that it's the island of diminishing returns. Sure, I can go get a new video card, for about $380, and it would hold me over for about year. Then, I'd need a new processor, motherboard, memory and another new GPU in a years time. That might hold me another two years, If I'm lucky. Then I'm upgrading again.... It's a never ending cycle, and a very expensive cycle. Basically, you almost have to think of it like this.... Every single year, you will spend almost $1,000 on PC hardware, give or take a few hundred. If you really want to stay cutting edge all the time, that's kinda the way it's going to have to be.

Yikes. I'm not into all that. I'll just have to make do with the PS4. All I want is 60 frames and 64 players. And I really think they'll give it to us this time around.

Yep. You can get by with a respectable PC for a while, but if you want performance you need to pay the big bucks for brute force. It's always been the case, and always will.

There's been a few misleading PC articles trying to compare the PS4 specs with a off the shelf parts PC, and they're not really true. they're actually downright shameful coming from websites and mags that know better, but find fueling the fanbois wars beneficial to their site clicks.

Rumors place the PS4 around $400-500, and they claim you can build a like PC for $1000. Well first off thats 2X as much for similar parts.

Then you run into the issue that much of the setup is not possible on a PC (8 core APU, 8GB GDDR5 unified, offloading OS chipset, different API & coding to metal, ect). Once you actually look at the performance and the not totally unlike, but not actually like parts comparison, things change wildly. Now you're talking a $1500-2000 gaming rig minimum to get the same performance in Fall 2013 as a PS4!

Add to that driver issues, OS issues, minimum requirements, Dev's always adding perks to the highest end GPU's, ect. It becomes a headache for someone more worried about gaming than tinkering all the time.

Chasing Graphics is a fool errand, especially now that we're in good enough HD territory. Personally, it's a waste of money. Battlefield 3 on PC runs the same on a low end PC as a monster rig, and as long as you can get the same gameplay out of it, is it really worth the extra big bucks? If PS4 can do PC BF3 with a full map and 64 players, sign me up. All I want really is 1080P at 60FPS, even if it means some trade offs in fancy particle effects or lens flare.

That should be perfectly fine going by the specs for the PS4 pretty deep into the generation, with room to improve in all other areas of graphical fidelity.

Is it worth it for someone who has never really played FPS games (especially online)? Or would I get frustrated that I was getting my butt kicked so much by max level players? Would I be better off waiting for BF4 and starting off the same level as everyone else? I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos of BF3/COD Black Ops II game play as I would like to at least try out an online FPS game, and BF3 has peaked my interest a little more than COD. This deal sounds like it might push me over the edge.

Any thoughts/opinions would be appreciated.

Is the new expansion cool. I haven't even played it, been addicted to guardians of middle earth.

anyone know anything about lag. I have changed my settings from 1080p to 720 and that seems to help some, however i'm shooting someone in the face first and they still kill me using a suppressor. i'm playing on a 55 set that has game mode. anyone have any tips on how to stop the lag. maybe i should not use hdmi gold cords, or turn aim assist off? i dont know. thanks for any tips.

I have my PS3 connected directly to the TV, no AVR in the path, and I have every single processing feature for HDMI 3 (input I'm using) turned off, and with the game mode on, and while I do agree, I often have some lag, but that's just part of the game, I hear its worse on DSl and ISDn connections, cable broadband is the way to go for online gaming.

all PS3 games are 720, so no need to adjust the resolution, that will only affect your video/BD quality.

Lag is latency between you and another player. Nothing you set on your TV is going to change how long packets take to get to tacoNbeans from Argentina. Unfortunatly, a lot of times the player with high latency has the benefit in a matchup.

Best bet, find another servers located close to you and with mostly US players on it. Better, find a server that is actively admin-ed and that bans high latency players.

Todays LCD TVs have a lot of video processing options that can delay your gaming by 1-2 seconds, many confuse this with lag, when its just your TV, and is typically the issue for most console gamers. turning off these options can really increase your game play, latency, as you mentioned, while a faster connecting can help some, but agree, there's little that can be done and switching servers often helps.

"all PS3 games are 720, so no need to adjust the resolution, that will only affect your video/BD quality." i saw a video on youtube last year and changed it to 720 and for some reason it made my guy move around a lot better, less heavy. i have seen some other videos where guys are going into playstation settings and changing around the net connection numbers. that stuff is over my head and i dont want to screw up my ps3 and not be able to get it back to the way it was before. i have all processing turned off on my tv and it still drives me crazy that i get a jump on some kid and still die. its funny that everytime it happens i look up the kids stats and they go 90 and 5 on maps like metro. now ive put over 500 hours of play into this game and know that these kids that are super good have the prefect set up and play around with differnt things to get rid of the lag. the worst aspect of this game is the lag because these guys find out how to reduce it and destroy everyone.

Bf3 isn't even 720p. It's scaled to that by ps3.

Not quite true.

Both of them render at a native 1280x704 resolution, letterboxed gently top and bottom.

Oh, I realize that. But the description is network latency, not input lag. Now if this is happening in single player too...

Battlefield 4, 17 minute reveal trailer.
post #1522 of 1615
That looks awesome! Must be the PC Version. I am thinking of building an htpc gaming machine, BF4 might be the spark that makes me do this.
post #1523 of 1615

You know if I had a 55" PC monitor, I'd be inclined to got that route as well, LOL, I'm going to see what's in store for the PS4 first, so far from what I've seen, I'm on board, but in the end, it all depends on the final price. but the game looks great no doubt.
post #1525 of 1615
Word is, like MGSV, they can;t say much until the NDA's lapse with the release date of the console announcement.

I did see an article that said scaled down 32 on PS360, but next gen was going to be the same as PC. Nothing in the trailer looked out of league with MGS5, KZ4, ect. Lets hope for 1080P/60!

Anybody know how to activate the battlefeed? Evidently I didn't care about the email I used back in the day for EA and now I'm getting bit for it. I tried a NCAA demo to re-sign I'm but it only tried to change my password and failed. :thumbdown:
