Not so much 'Classic FPS Remastered' for this one, as we're using fresh captures - as opposed to library footage from the DF archives! For a PC Time Capsule video, we returned to the 2011 classic - Battlefield 3 - and put together an informal platform comparison, stacking up the PC version to PS3 and Xbox 360. In the process, we noticed something - performance had changed somewhat on PS3. After recording, Rich put together this analysis based on patched code running on both systems... screen-tearing is gone on PlayStation 3!
