How the fuck is this going to run on a console when it's two 550s being used for the current footage?
DICE have said that they invented a new form of disc storage to go along with the new engine that allows the consoles to run close, but not equal, graphics to the PC version at top graphics.
 
Whether this is true/accurate, I don't know, I just remember it from a press discussion they did.

@Ahmad_Metallic: I had doubts about getting this one because of EA's DLC frenzy ... But anyway looks to good to not buy it.

Looks really neat, a few people praised the animation though, I can't say that its anything special, it seems like nice animation but its not anything other games haven't done, BC2 had some decent animations.

OH MAN DUDE THAT GUY IS TOTALLY LAYING DOWN AND MOVING 
 
The more and more the military shooter genre saturates, the more and more I become less interested in something more realistic like this. Sup' MW3, world war three you say? Non-sensical world-spanning plot you say? Ridiculous co-op missions you say? Yeah, that sounds more appealing.

Everything about those screenshots were good except for the EA PWNED crap on the sides of the shots.  Whoever came up with that saying should be shot.

 That is so beautiful. Look at that blue. That's the best looking atmosphere I've seen in a video game for a long time. It would be perfect for a Hitman game. Dark, moody, mellow.   Or a Mirror's Edge game! Oh man! Mirror's Edge with the new Frostbyte engine confirmed!? OH MY GOD!!
Agreed. I'm obsessed with "city at night" aesthetics, and images like that are why. If the sky were darker, it'd be perfect.

I'm sure my card will handle this on second highest settings, but this game makes me really want to get a 2gb card.

The game looks gorgeous, but what is EA PWNED_ and where can I find the person who came up with that name so I can punch them?
EA PWNED is a Youtube show on the EAvision channel, and it's pretty much the only real way to sneak peek at any upcoming EA games. they covered Dead Space 2 and Bulletstorm quite nicely, and they're doing the same with BF3 now! 
Does the name stink? Sure. Do i care? Too busy jizzing over Battlefield 3 ^^

Looks B-E-A-utiful.  Maybe this'll get me to seriously play a competitive FPS again.

That 570 I bought is about to get a serious workout, this game is retina melting goodness.

I'm sorry but.. don't be too sure. I'm sorry!  Edit: As in, i don't think your 570 is up for the job :P :$
Dude - the game will scale very well. All you need is good enough hardware to get over a certain hump, after which the game runs smoothly and great looking. As much as I've been able to learn about their rendering method, it's all about fitting its streaming process into the RAM and the system being fast enough to handle the flow. The basic workload is much higher than with classic rendering methods, but as soon as you get it running, it's gonna be smooth sailing.
 
Of course computers and software are the equivalent of arcane magic to me. So this might all be bull. Pretty sure it's an ecomomic reality for it to run well on any modern gaming system, so it will certainly scale well enough for any DX11 systems. BF3 will run on a 570 just fine. Still will be the most graphically impressive game to date, even with some 'luxury settings' turned off.

Hmm? They're using a single GTX 580 for the trailers as far as I know.
 
Same here - I'm very curious about FB2 performance on consoles. I don't think anybody has done 'deferred rendering' on consoles yet. The guys at EA/DICE are technological trendsetters with Frostbite 2.
 
Could be like the step from bitmaps to whatever Donkey Kong and Final Fantasy VI were for the 16bit-era, if their tech works out well on current gen consoles.

@NickL: well, it depends, they don't release like real screenshots during the alpha or beta stage. They call this bullshots, where it's controlled and rendered on their workstation pcs, then they raise the rez up to like X4000 or more, then they photoshop it back to 1080p so it looks sharp. Other times, they just take a screenshot directly from the ram, which is like a direct feed and it always looks better. One of the tricks I use is to see if the screenshot has a hud and stuff, then it's probally real, if it's not overly sharp which means they raised the rez and downscaled it in photoshop. Tecmo does that alot for example. 
 
I'm obsessed with screenshots and graphics from it. Lol.
Posted by AhmadMetallic
@HitmanAgent47:  Okay then, you have the right to demand that games look just as good when videos of them are paused so you can have your screenshots, but i doubt it's anybody's priority to pause a video of a game and see that it still looks good. 
 
I want it to look good when i run it on an i5 and a GTX 580 by the end of the year. that's what matters to me
Posted by NickL

Screenshots of games before they are released always look nicer then the game it seems, but this game will look pretty nice.

Edited by HitmanAgent47
@Ahmad_Metallic: I heard that excuse before, I think a game should look good paused and also in motion. My point is if a game only looks good in motion, then it's too much effects, sort of like metro 2033 or ps3 excusives. However it can't maintain the textures detail of a nice looking paused game, its shader and lighting heavy and it's not as good looking as we are lead to believe. This is called smoke and mirrors. But I do think it looks fantastic in motion, about pausing screenshots, I have a hobby of taking screenshots so I would like to at least have the option of having a nice looking game to show off or to talk screenshots in. That's all i'm saying. I never said the game doesn't look good in motion, I think it looks excellent. I was just suprised it didn't look as good when it's paused. Look I have thousands of games that looks good when paused screenshotwise, so I think that's important. 
 
Then again maybe it's a directX 11 thing, it doesn't always look good unless it's in motion. 
 
Look you asked me to defend my position and I did exactly that, now you admit that it looks good in motion and could look better screenshotwise. So I made my point and also of how I myself take screenshots during all the pc games I play. I like strong texture work besides strong lighting.

@HitmanAgent47:  dude, i'm hyping BF3 like a motherfucker.. that means i have all the videos and screens in the world right now. I watch that 1.8 GB video 3 times a day.
 
Basically what you're saying is that BF3 looks better in motion than any other game, but when we pause the videos, other games look better paused? so.. what's your point? Are we playing games here or watching and pausing videos of them?
Edited by HitmanAgent47

  @Ahmad_Metallic: I have screenshots that looks better screenshotwise, but not in motion. I don't want to be off topic though.
 
Also download that trailer above and pause it. It's 1080p. Alot of times ppl with a ps3 said that's not what the game looks like when it's paused, then you find out that's what it looks like and they aren't used to seeing a game paused. It's all DX11 effects, it seems like you don't understand me, so i'll let you think whatever you want. I just make the claim screenshotwise, the game doesn't look as good as in motion and there is no evidence to counter that. I also used a 1080p video to make my point.

@HitmanAgent47:  i'm asking for screenshots of OTHER games which you think look better than BF3, resolution wise !

This shit needs to hurry up and get released.

Posted by Wuddel

Guys, thats quite a bit of nitpicking. Its a great looking game. Probably the best looking shooter ever. I do not know how it compares to other recent DX11 games (Witcher 2). For me it is all about the animations. These already have been good in BC2 but when they adding the FIFA stuf it will be truly awesome.

@Ahmad_Metallic: I just posted three, you want another battlefield 3 screenshot?
No no.. you're saying that the BF3 high rez screens don't look high rez enough. so i'm asking for a screenshot of another game that is truly high rez by your definition, for comparison's sake.
Edited by HitmanAgent47
@Ahmad_Metallic: I just posted three, you want another battlefield 3 screenshot?
 
My opinion is that in motion this is one of the best looking game, but screenshotwise shows the smoke and mirrors, it's not as good as it really seems. It's enhanced by the great lighting effects and motion blur and stuff, but not textures.
