Yeah gamestop posted this on twitter

Got to see Battlefield 4 today and all I can say is WOW! Thanks @EA for the sneak peek. Can’t wait for you all to see it. ^CEO #BF4

EA could very well be showing BF4 at the playstation meeting.

Doubt it. I think they will focus on first party games.

FarCryLover182  +   1089d ago
maybe, but Sony will want to show off something tomorrow that will appeal for everyone. BF4 for the military shooter crowd, Killzone 4 for the sci-fi crowd, motorstorm for the racing crowd, the last guardian for that crowd, etc. etc.
sobekflakmonkey  +   1089d ago
actually sony is going to be showing off lots of third party stuff, the reason being is that all those third party devs are gonna want in on the next generation of console gaming and they're gonna want to be there when it begins, it's a way for them to show off what they have, and what's going to be available on next gen consoles, so I'm almost absolutely sure that third party devs will be there.

It could very well happen... Sony will go beyond 1st party. With a new console, they will want to show 3rd party support, and they will want to show some of the most graphically impressive 3rd party, and BF4 and FF would be two great games to show.
a_bro  +   1088d ago
The reason why they would want to show 3rd party games is to prove to everyone that the system will not suffer when it comes to graphics of those games compared to the ps3 which was really hard for 3rd parties to develop for
Red_Orange_Juice  +   1088d ago
100% 3rd party publishers will be there
RumbleFish  +   1088d ago
If SONY are releasing the PS4 with Killzone 4 and BF4 at launch they will have a huge success even in NA.
Syntax-Error  +   1088d ago
I was not getting the PS4 at launch this November because my PS3 has tons of life and games to get. I would wait until they have a heavy library of games before a $429.99 purchase.....BUT....if they launch this with BF4 and KZ4 in the library, I might have to reconsider. There's just too many heavy hitters this year on PS3 to warrant a purchase on a new console at this point.
Ju  +   1088d ago
BF4 makes perfect sense to be shown tonight. EA already made a statement that "they ported Frostbite to next gen" and a in house directive to use Frostbite for most of the games in their portfolio; which would mean those games will be available immediately on the next generation of machines.

@Syntax-Error. I'm with you. I wanted to wait till next year; but my excitement level is raising. Not sure if I will be able to hold off. But at the same time, my PS3 won't go anywhere anytime soon; even if I'd get a PS4. Still great games to play there, too.

It would be SO awesome if they showed off BF4 playing on the PS4 tomorrow. Probably won't happen, but that's what I'm hoping for above all personally.
joab777  +   1089d ago
I agree. They always worked with sony especially with B3. It would make no sense to release this on ps3. It will come out un November at launch and what better time than tomorrow to show a quick trailer that is running on ps4.
Ju  +   1088d ago
Frostbite scales. It'll be out for the PS3 as well.
Andreas-Sword  +   1089d ago
yeah! Battlefield 4 will be the best First Person Shooter 2013, 2014!
NegativeCreepWA  +   1089d ago
While I don't disagree, I would wait to see how Destiny and Respawn Entertainments shooter turns out first.
WeAreLegion  +   1089d ago
I have loved Battlefield since BF1942, but I definitely prefer the Killzone series. ;) I am so excited for both though!
DeadlyFire  +   1088d ago
Destiny not likely until 2014.
Respawn not likely until 2014.

Battlefield 4 2013.

KZ is not perfect, but its gotten better with each title so far in at least a few ways.
Flavor  +   1088d ago
Did ya even play BF3? Because most people who did realized pretty fast that they were playing a mediocre CoD clone with half-arsed destruction physics and cartoon vehicles.

And this is coming from a battlefield fan on PC . Can't imagine how awful this game was on consoles with like 24 players.
andibandit  +   1088d ago
It's more likely we will get a 20 minute segment about Wonderbook 2, than BF4

I think it's very possible. EA and sony have had a close relationship this gen, the way xbox and activision have. You never know.

kevnb  +   1088d ago
I think many dont realize pc games get optimized over time, heck ue3 games are more optimized on pc than on console. Drivers get updated, games get updated as well. In the case of battlefield 3 they were using the dx11 api well, anything that supports dx10 should play it. Hell Ive seen people using onboard graphics to get better than console performance. Im sure somebody will pick one of the very few games on pc that run like crap to prove a point, but 99 times out of 100 thats not the case. Console games just dont get the post release support like pc games do.

Battlefield was born and bred on the PC. Nobody should expect anything out of the ordinary.

SKUD  +   1089d ago
I do agree, except for the fact that the PC MP version of BF3 failed to meet or even surpass the fun BF2 brought IMO. Felt to console focused. Planetside 2 however has restored my faith in PC FPS MP. 12 man squads + larger platoons battling it out with ground and air vehicles?. Action overload.
NegativeCreepWA  +   1089d ago
Funny how you say "actually console footage" like the PC version is irrelevant.
WildStyles  +   1089d ago

BanBrother  +   1089d ago
Do I have to be the guy to point out the hypocrisy? Why is it EA can bring out ten Battlefields, and no-one have a problem, but when CoD does it they are evil? I don't play CoD either, so don't even accuse me of that. I just like pointing double standards out is all, enjoy your day. (Not saying you can't enjoy Battlefield either).
SOD_Delta  +   1089d ago
Call of Duty comes out every year. The last Battlefield game was released in 2011. I don't even know if BF4 is releasing this year. Even if it is that's two year since the last BF game.
Jek_Porkins  +   1089d ago
Well now that they've canned Medal Of Honor, how long do you think before we see a Battlefield/Bad Company game on a bi yearly basis? Which is pretty much the same thing since the COD games are actually developed by different teams and on a two year cycle as well.
SOD_Delta  +   1089d ago
@Jek_Porkins "Which is pretty much the same thing since the COD games are actually developed by different teams and on a two year cycle as well."
No, It's not the same thing. Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2 are the same game just re-skinned. Where as BFBC2 and BF3 are completely different. Also which were released two years apart. So let me ask you how is it "pretty much the same thing"?

I highly doubt EA will add another developer on the BF series (If that's what your implying)

Since when?
Xristo  +   1089d ago

Since when?! Frostbite engine much?! What engine is COD still using? Yup, same engine since 2007. I might not agree with the direction of the Battlefield series (missing key features from BF2) but DICE is always innovating.

Riderz1337  +   1089d ago
@listenkids, Since they upgraded their engine to FrostBite 2.0 and CoD is still using a 2005 engine AND Battlefield games have dedicated servers on consoles whereas Call of Duty relies on ONE host. Come on broski.
Flavor  +   1088d ago
some serious rose tinted goggles in here.

BF3 was a giant yawn, hyped up and then came crashing to earth as another generic mil-shooter
with smaller maps, no editor, fewer players, canned destruction physics, and ton$ of DLC.

And the Sp was even worse than CoD.
KwietStorm  +   1089d ago
COD, and it's annual success, has affected the whole industry. Whether you like the game or not, isn't the question. But there are plenty of changes industry wide that have infected other games, trying to emulate apparently what people like about COD. If I wanted that game, i would buy it. I do not, therefore I do not want those elements in the game I did buy. I'm also just tired of seeing them get rich off a tired strategy. Its the same thing over and over and over again, but people are more than willing to pad their pockets for what effectively is a $60 patch.
BanBrother  +   1089d ago

Do you know how many Battlefields have been released? CoD and Battlefield have both been milked, pushing almost 20 games including expansions (not DLC...the expansions).

I think people are too quick to judge. I knew I would get lots of disagrees, but no-one has given me a good answer. Why is Battlefield allowed to make lots of games but not CoD?
In fact, why do most games that have 3 or 4 games get called out for being 'milked', but everyone is praising this?

Disagree all you want, but at least I know there is a little child inside with no words or reason to back it up.
xursz  +   1089d ago
If you look at the progression of BF games you can see steady improvements: graphics, scale, engine, sound, maps, vehicles, etc. etc.

When you look at every CoD since Modern Warfare they have all been technically the same. I would even argue level design in MP has gotten far worse. When BF starts to use this business model of releasing the same game annually I'll have no problem whatsoever saying I'm done with the series.

For now I much prefer BF and DICE.
FarCryLover182  +   1089d ago
Because DICE is DICE and they change things up. It's not the same game copied + pasted.

T2  +   1089d ago
Exactly , I was the biggest cod fan ever but they actually get worse ... Bf3 has sooo much more to do its not even a comparison anymore just watch a couple YouTube vids and its evident... No offence to cod YouTubers but that stuff stale now ...
RedDeadLB  +   1088d ago
Except almost every weapon from BC2 is a direct copy of the same weapon from BC1. But BC2 is still a hell of a lot more fun than BF3.

If only they could make BF4 more meaty ("heavy" as BC2 is, so it doesn't feel plastic like BF3) and fun. BC2 is hectic, but never weary. BF3 gets very dull very quickly.

younghavok  +   1089d ago
I think a popular trend in the coming console cycle will be multiplats that stretch across gens. Its a smart idea to maximize sales. BF4 will probably hit the last gen and the current gen with similar results as BF3 on consoles and PC.
sandman224  +   1089d ago

It seems like BF3 only just came out LOL

It would be a great PS4 launch title, Imagine BF4 running at 60fps in 1080p on PS4 with more than 60 players. That would be epic.
T2  +   1089d ago
I would like more players for bigger maps ... Armoured kill is great but can be quite boring if you end up with like 5 kills , 2 deaths lol ... Too big for 12 players even 20 would rock
