One of the most anticipated games of the entire year is easily Battlefield 3, and it’s hard to debate that fact after watching some of the game’s visually stunning gameplay. Every single gameplay video and screenshot that has been released for Battlefield 3 so far has been eye-poppingly gorgeous, but one thing that EA has been completely honest about since the beginning is that every bit of BF-related media made available to-date has featured the game running on PC. So, how does it look on the consoles?
That all changed last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon when the first ever gameplay footage of Battlefield 3 running on a home console finally made its long-anticipated arrival. A pair of developers were on the talk show to showcase how the game works and more importantly, looks, running on PlayStation 3. Fortunately, the game still looks incredible. Sure, the difference is still noticeable between console and PC versions, but anyone who was remaining critical on the game because DICE and EA hadn’t shown off what Battlefield 3 looked like running on consoles can now put their worries to rest. It’s still the best out there.
You can see what Battlefield 3 looks like on PS3, and listen to Jimmy Fallon laugh at his own jokes in the video below.
The destructible environments that the Battlefield franchise has become so well-known for are still very much intact in the latest console installment, and the game still manages to look fabulous while cars and sides of buildings are being blown up. EA and DICE have done a great job transitioning the PC version’s look and feel over to consoles, and the game looks a lot better than many were expecting. There is still a noticeable difference between the PC and console version, but the graphics in Battlefield 3 surely won’t disappoint 360 or PS3 gamers like EA mentioned before.
What do you think and how does compare to its prime competitor in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3?
Battlefield 3 is currently scheduled to release on October 25th on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
