Last Night on Jimmy Fallon show, the first footage of Battlefield 3 on Playstation 3 was shown off. There was around 2 minutes of gameplay demo but if the comparison is to be made, there wasn’t much apparent difference between PC and console version of the game.
You can watch the footage yourself, it looks impressive. Though, the sound isn’t that clear.
Considering we have been watching the PC version of the game for months, it may look different since there are few graphics effects that are missing or comparatively not at par with PC. The resolution is lower, the textures are blurrier, and objects may look like less detailed.
The lightening and particle effects aren’t that spectacular. Again, this is when you compare it with the PC footage, but it has everything a console game can offer and I have already said it, it looks impressive.
Smooth frame-rates are another thing to consider, the game was running smooth at 30 FPS. But if you want all that eye candy, you may consider building a PC now. Though, Playstation 3 version isn’t half bad either.
