Bad Company 2 Xbox vs PS3 Games

| June 14, 2010 | 1 Comment

I’ve only recently started playing Bad Company 2 on the PS3 and hit my 24th hour of game play last night, still a bit to go to catch up with my 96 hours of game play on the xbox.

I have to admit starting fresh on the PS3 was a bit daunting as I’d be going up against some high ranking players but surprisingly enough I’m loving every bit of it and my experience from the xbox game play is helping out a lot.

I’ve decided on using different tactics on the PS3 but also with different goals in mind. For example, I’m shooting to achieve every gold star for every weapon starting with the assault class. I’ve now changed that so my class changes to whatever map I’m in or if I’m playing as an attacker or a defender.

So is Bad Company 2 better on the PS3 or Xbox?

Someone raised this question to me yesterday and I got a lot slack for my answer. I’m finding the PS3 is better but having difficultly actually pinpointing why, the controls seem faster, the graphics are shaper but the game play just seems to be more hectic (maybe that’s just me).

However, there are a couple of things that I do not like right now with the BFBC2 on the PS3.

I’m having an awful time with knifing people. It seems no matter how close I am to the enemy or where I aim the knife reacts as if it couldn’t cut through butter giving the enemy the chance to turn around and kill me. Although I have to admit it has presented some really crazy moments where the enemy and me end up having a knife slashing match.

Another thing that is really annoying me at the moment is that I’m getting kicked from a lot of games, possibly every 4th or 5th game. I haven’t done any troubleshooting to discover the problem so I can’t say it’s the PS3 network or the console, although I am using wireless on my PS3 were as my xbox has a direct cable connection.

On a good note though I’ve noticed there is more chat among the PS3 players than with the xbox. Even if I don’t have a mic connected to the PS3 I can still hear my squad but the xbox it’s always silent, maybe that’s just me.

So far it’s going really well playing Bad Company 2 on the PS3 and I’m climbing the ranks quickly enough. I’m looking forward to getting some really good games in with Donncha, Dave and a few others.

    1. If you heard people using their mics on the PS3 it was just dumb luck! I rarely come across players who communicate, on either platform 🙁

      Glad you have a PS3 but I’m still leveling up my Xbox account so I’ll have to ping you some evening about a game!
