If that is indeed true (about requirements to max out the game), I applaud DICE for looking forward into the future.
It will give the game better longevity.

Of course, what is of upmost importance is: can you play the game on a cheap machine at 45-60 FPS at settings that make it look pretty?
If the game looks good on medium settings, does it really matter if it doesn't say "maxed settings" in the options menu?
Nobody on TPU wants to play any game on "medium" settings. If thats all we wanted we would be console sheep.

No. TPU members like to go balls deep or go home. Medium graphic settings is for pussies. Why do you think we all overclock? For medium settings? Hell no! I want me eyes to contract diabetes from all the eye candy!

I guess I'm not on TPU then :laugh:

I just want to play the games and I want them to look good. Everything else is just e-peening :D

PS Of course I overclock my hardware - it allows me to play the games I play at better performance while still looking good

BREAKING: Battlefield 3 alpha screenshots leaked

On July 17th, 2011 in Gallery

EA and DICE are currently running alpha/beta testing on the new Battlelog service, where a number of third party testers have been given access to the alpha version of Battlefiled 3 in order to test Battlelog. One of the testers sent us these screenshots of Battlefield 3, which is in alpha mode. The map is the same as we’ve seen at E3: Operation Metro. While the screenshots don’t reveal anything we haven’t seen yet, we do, for the first time, get a good glimpse of the Battlefield 3 HUD. There’s also an extra screenshot of Battlelog, showing a server browser.






Notice the player name is erased on the browser screen, but shows up on the APC screen as the driver...oops.

Notes from another site on the same topic:

Battlefield 3 - Leaked 'Alpha Trial' multiplayer screenshots and graphics info
SUNDAY, JULY 17, 2011

Over on the tek-9.org forums, a user by the name of 'GOLD.i3DGwendoline' is now your best friend. They've leaked some Battlefield 3 screenshots from an 'Alpha Trial' of Battlefield 3, as well as some brand new information regarding graphics and gameplay. It's all below.

Remember, those are early-build multiplayer screenshots, which we're very keen to point out won't be representative of the final game (don't get your panties in a twist, folks). However, DICE have a lot of work to do; they've said before that there should be no difference between online and offline graphics.

The user also left some insightful new details, though we're a bit doubtful about the fact Graphic Detail was set to 'high':

At first, The game says I need nvidia driver 275.35, while the last one is 275.33.
So maybe there will be more graphic options when it is enabled...

The only options I could change where resolution, which I took 1680x1024.
Graphic Detail: High

- Maps looks good.
- Graphic settings is bugged, probably since the recommended driver version is not yet released.
- Very low recoil, tough there is bulletspread.
- Bullets bounce off metal.
- Surround sound is REALLY good, the sound of the rockets that flew by my head made me smile, explosions are really nice, a good deep drum.
- You can see your own legs when you look down, tough your weapon will stick thru your own leg... =x
- You do not walk fully silent when crouching.
- Infinite sprint.
- Tank can swim and jump (funny bug rofl)


And in case you wanted to know what sort of machine could run that at 510 FPS:

AMD PhenomII 965 @ 4.5Gghz
4x2048MB DDR3-2133Mhz
2x 80GB Intel X-25 SSD on an Areca RAID controller.
1x GTX460, little bit clocked.


The original post can be found here. Stay tuned to our Twitter and we'll try our hardest to find you more in-game screenshots.

Battlefieldo - Battlelog website surfaces



11:09 am | by Stadler on July 17, 2011

The official login page for Battlelog has surfaced over the last couple of days. Even though no one is able to login now, looks as though EA/DICE is getting their system online. The CoD Elite beta kicked off over the weekend and perhaps EA/DICE is looking to do the same. There was much speculation whether this page was real or not but now we have confirmation on this. Through this page popping up, the community discovered a few other references. First, it appears as those a Swedish company, ESN is building the battlelog framework and a few developers have been seen on origin with “Battlefield 3 Alpha Trial” on their list. You can check out the Battelog login page for yourself, and no matter how many times you try to login, we can assure you it won’t work. But the fantasy is nice.

Battlefield 3 Out of Steam

Retailer suggests that EA's shooter might not appear on Steam.
UK, July 18, 2011
by Jamie Feltham

EA's hotly-anticipated Battlefield 3 may not come to Steam when it's released later in the year, US retail giant GameStop has suggested.

Financial research firm Baird stated as much following a meeting with GameStops' management team, saying that the "upcoming EA title Battlefield 3 will be sold as a download through GameStop, but not through Steam."

It was confirmed to Develop that this news comes directly from company executives. The DICE shooter will come to other digital download services, however.

The Baird report continues: "Given Steam's dominance – and insistence on users downloading a Steam client application – publishers are likely to be receptive to a competitive alternative,"

EA recently launched Origin, a digital download service set to rival Valve's. And last month saw the EA-published Crysis 2 removed from Steam after a DLC exclusivity deal was signed with another service. EA claimed no responsibility for the removal or the deal.

It may well be missing out on Steam, but we're still looking forward to Battlefield 3's launch on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 25 in the US, and three days later in Europe.

Everything else is just e-peening :D

I have a problem with this thought, and many people seem to share it.

E-Peen is a sort of comparing yourself to others, that's not what this is
about. i don't need to know and i don't care what other people's settings
are. I don't want the best to beat anyone else, i just simply want the
best, and i don't see where e-peen comes into that.

I don't really get this why can't you turn it off. Sure it looks fun on single player but this really hurts your eyes after a few hours.

I gotta agree, I hope they don't have the excessive bloom effects like they did in BFBC2. Although there was an advanced configuration tool released on the net to remove it and it is doable manually also.

If you play games on medium and that is your definition of looking good then I suggest you buy a console and save your money.

The game will look good even on consoles, but the PC version will look a tonne better in DX11, high-res textures and AA/AF cranked! And it won't be locked at 30 FPS! :rockout:
I disagree.

Why state that those who have PC's that are only capable of playing the game on medium should only buy the Console version?, considering not everyone has money to spend like you do.

Plus im pretty positive BF3 will look great on Medium and it'll still look better then the Console version.
