Here’s What Battlefield 3 Looks Like On The Xbox 360

Here’s What Battlefield 3 Looks Like On The Xbox 360

Throughout its public relations cycle, DICE’s Battlefield 3 was shown only on PC and, later, PlayStation 3. The Xbox 360 version was kept under the stairs, beaten weekly and fed fish heads and stale water.

That led many to assume it was a hideous thing, but if these screenshots from the Korean version of the game are legit, it looks OK.

I mean, things might change when you see it in motion, and things are certainly looking jaggier (and grainier) than they will on PC, but given the age of the 360’s hardware and shroud of mystery surrounding the version over the past six months, I was expecting much worse.

    • To me it looks like it’s totally overlit which highlights all the missing pieces in the shot.
      1st it’s too clean
      2nd there’s nothing in the horizon
      3rd the smoke is a solid mass

      Taking a closer look though the lighting is caused by the explosion – so maybe when it’s in motion it won’t look so bad.

    • Okay so the PC and PS3 will look better than the 360 version, it’s always been known that would happen for their new engine.

      But besides THAT point – when you say ‘terrible’ what are you comparing it to besides the PS3/PC versions?

      I don’t see anything terrible. The graphics are some of the best for a 360 game judging from those screenshots.

  • at first i actually did not know if the first picture was just a shitty edit, just to be funny. thats how bad it is.

    seriously, wtf is up with that explosion. it looks horrible.

  • Its sad how much you ppl bitch about a game, the console is 5 years old.Get a PC if you want the best graphics, I play for gameplay.

          • sure, the game is. but i think he meant the cost of the pc compared to the console.

            ive spent thousands on my pc, but my xbox cost me a couple of hundred.
            top notch graphics and performance is not something everyone can afford, or even cares about. which is what make consoles great.

    • (in before “elitist PC user” comment)
      Let me clarify — dedicated servers, keyboard/mouse controls, double the player count and larger maps make it superior IMO.

      • you are correct in this case, problem is people take that opinion and apply it to every cross-platform game, when some of them really dont have differences. random game example DMC4, i played that on PC with a gamepad, i forgot i was on PC, felt like playstation.

  • But I’ve already seen comparison shots of some sort, plus there was the beta. I didn’t know the 360 version was a bIg secret.

  • Obviously not as good as the PC version, but still pretty decent considering it’ll be running on an absolute fraction of the ram and processing power.

  • You guys are forgetting one thing. You don’t even know if these screenshots were taken with the optional HD textures installed…

    • But no one is blaming the textures. It is the other effects like shadows that look bad, which wouldn’t be affected by better textures AFAIK. The models also look rather low poly (especially the tanks), understandably though.

      • You’re pretty much correct. It’s not just lighting, shadows and effects. It’s also post processing. That’s where they shift the colour or tones of an image or anti alias etc. after rendering it. Both consoles will be weaker on that by a large margin. Reducing textures and poly is more noticeable as you get close to walls and so the general appearance of a game doesn’t suffer as much with even a 75% reduction in those areas as it does by losing post processing. From the looks of many of the models they might be cutting even more then 75% of detail for the consoles…

  • People saying that these screenshots look horrible are clearly fanboys trying to stir the pot. The at the time 2-month old Beta already looked better than the competitors, and so do these pics. Everyone needs to relax and quit being snobs. This game is going to rock for any platform when it come out!

  • Pretty sure if I was playing the game I’d be too busy having fun than noticing that some post-processing lens flare voxelated flobblebot was only 83% as awesome as the PC version, tbh.

    • consoles will prob sell most, cause to play this at 60 fps at 1080p on max u need to spend a fair amount of money upgrading your PC, where Consoles are cheap

          • … And with a pc you have streaming tv, an office, a research lab, a 3D graphics workstation, a porn server, an internet book archive and a million other things. Great logic /sarcasm

          • Yeah, but I think you will find most of us do actually have PCs too that are more than capable of the other benefits you mentioned a PC has…..just not $$$ gaming rig (that need to be updated every year or 2 unlike the television and big sound) so I would settle for the large television and big sound over a “gaming rig” any day.

          • With the current CPU’s the only thing that “may” need to be upgraded every couple of years in a “gaming pc’s” is the graphics card. Lets say $200-$500. Not mention the resale value of the old card. I always get at least half of what I paid back. Lets see you get even $50 for your current console when the new ones finally come out.

  • dw pc users will expierence the same gfx when origin and battlelog maxs out cpu and ram leaving nothing for the game

  • I love the classic pc fanboyism denial.
    I would be just as defensive if i had spent a retarded amount of money on hardware.

    /tiphat

  • I love my PC gaming but it’s getting to be console ports or buggy releases that don’t work and need a patch straight away. I don’t think I will upgrade my PC for gaming any time soon, I’ll just wait to see what happens in the next console gen.

  • Yeah some pics look good but some look worse than battlefield for iPad. I’ll wait for MW3 one main reason is that it won’t be american host, thats whats happened in the past with bad company and the camping. I mean hopefullly they have fixed camping issues in the maps for MW3.

  • please note that these screen shots are WITHOUT THE HIGH RESOLUTION TEXTURES PACK which you can install on your xbox or ps3.

    so basically, it will be much better than these pictures!
