EA’s CFO has seen Battlefield 4 running on a PlayStation 4

Pixelenemy - “I’ve seen the new Battlefield and it is stunning, I mean it is just amazing; what the imagination of the game developers are allowed to do with that much power,” says Jorgensen. (Battlefield 4, PS4)

I hope so...
You are CFO of EA..
konnerbllb  +   511d ago
Yeah I would be worried if he hadn't.

This just in: Jason West and Vince Zampella have seen their new game running on next gen consoles as well.

BF4 may actually dethrone COD. Or am I being too optimistic?
Blackdeath_663  +   511d ago
@Peppino7
yes i believe it will in due time. what i am worried about is with the recent medal of honour being removed from ea's AAA game rotation that they will be focusing so much on battlefield to the point when it becomes the new COD and EA releases the same game over and over. basically i hope they don't milk it and speaking of milking i say absolutely NO to any hint of microtransactions in BF4. EA have publicly spoken about their desire to make microtransations a part of every game to the point where they are willing to have microtransaction in a singleplayer game.

To my fellow PC gamers:
Army_of_Darkness seems to ignore the fact that we can upgrade our PCs anytime we want because we save so much money on the games. And he seems to ignore the fact that the GPUs we allready own are actually more powerful than the one they are going to put into the PS4. Poor boy!

Well the PS4 won't have better graphics than PC, it will still have a great collection of games, as I am a PC/PS gamer and proud!
@ RumbleFish
I agree with that PC has greater graphics, but don't attack consoles, we already know that we have better visuals. I'm sorry but I don't like PC gamers who go out and attack Console gamers as we are all gamers together.

They're already in BF3. The micro-transactions just aren't purchasable within the game. They've been selling the ability to bypass unlocking stuff within the game by paying to have them unlocked. It's been in the Xbox Live marketplace and PS Store for quite some time.

CryofSilence  +   510d ago
Since it's Battlefield we're talking about, something would be terribly wrong if the game didn't look gorgeous. So, despite being the CFO, he's probably right.
Ragthorn  +   509d ago
@kikizoo
I disagree with you completely on your statement on how PS3 didn't have many games. I'll happy to name 10 PS3 Exclusives/Series: inFAMOUS Series, Uncharted Series, Ratchet and Clank series, Killzone Series, Flow, Flower, Journey, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Warhawk, and my personal favourite, Demon's Souls. They're many to mention but these are of the many exclusives and series that PS3 has.

@reverent you are correct it is 12 vs 12,just some people who like to be part of the in crowd and voice random agree.

Unless they play close quarters, but I seriously just think, it's my first statement.

Still with the new generation kicking in the player count should increase, if not what's so next gen?
AzaziL  +   510d ago
player count > graphics, it doesn't need to be the best looking game, it just needs what makes battlefield great: gigantic maps and enough players to fill em.
UnholyLight  +   510d ago
@Blackdeath_663

Not to be too worried. Battlefield has traditionally been a release every 2 years type deal. It's expected to stay that way because they don't want to over saturate the market the way Activision turned CoD into..

As for MoH, I would expect another reboot back to it's roots (at least that's what I am hoping). MoH was a big and great franchise in it's early days with WWII and that's what it should go back to, especially with the lack of WWII shooters out there nowadays. There's still a big market for historical shooters and that's where I would take it.
DeFFeR  +   510d ago
I don't know if MoH can recover - especially with BF on an every other year release cycle. It's likely that BF4 comes out this fall, and I'd assume that next fall, we see the release of the Respawn title, which would effectively replace MoH in the rotation.
UnholyLight  +   509d ago
I don't see it very hard to make a good MoH game. They've made them before, it just doesn't seem like they have even TRIED to make a great game in that series lately.
PRHB HYBRiiD  +   510d ago
@Blackdeath_663
I agree,i love battlefield but i don't want the game to be released year after year.Maybe a 2 year cycle would be good bad company 3 then another battlefield 4 or 5 and so on.
The_KELRaTH  +   510d ago
I'd prefer it if they went back to the original BF cycle and offered a few full blown expansions.
Crazyglues  +   510d ago
NO..NO... Don't tell me this... I can only take so much news without actually seeing it for my self..!

“I’ve seen the new Battlefield and it is stunning, I mean it is just amazing; what the imagination of the game developers are allowed to do with that much power,”

-Ok you are killing me right now...EA here just take my money, you had me at BF4 On PS4..

-I need to see this... -I can't even imagine how good it probably looks, especially after seeing what killzone was able to do..

OMG! It looks like I'll be going broke this fall because I was already getting a PS4, (never-mind all the games I just pre-ordered for PS3) then add a PS4 with Driveclub & Watchdogs with my system at launch, and now add BF4 for my PS4... :)

They might as well start the pre-orders on Amazon.com because I'm ready to order mine before they sell out..

This is getting Crazy, just wait till E3, We haven't even begun to see what's coming to PS4... OMG! I can't wait..

Wouldn't it be crazy if EA and MS are in cahoots with each other this new gen, like those reports have mentioned. And BF4 was released earlier on Durango. :D And timed DLC maps for Xbox first.

Wow... that would be staggering.

Probably looks like Battlefield 3 on PCs.

Absolutely stunning.

I'm sure he mean't 720, there are no games on PS4 (yeah I'm starting that early)

BUT 720, Forza 5, Fable sub-MMO, third party games and all the kinect2.0 shovelware crap you can shake a stick at!

DUH
The media has already seen BF4(2 weeks ago). EA held a special press viewing and everyone already said the game is jaw dropping. It's already slated for release later this year on PS3, 360, PC, and PS4. This is not really news, but more of some confirming what we already heard before.

Persistantthug  +   510d ago
@joecanada......Yeah but BATTLEFIELD 3 has maps.
Map packs are just another form of microtransactions.......especi ally when some companies are caught taking them out of games and sticking a separate pricetag on them later, or reusing old maps from previous games.

But yeah, even though it's now accepted, as far as the bottom line is concerned for EA and others--the bottom line being to charge you more money after the initial sale--BATTLEFIELD 3 is no different.

Okay.

This is a portion of a speech EA CEO John Riccitiello gave at a stockholder's meeting, in which he talks about Microtransactions and how effective they are in getting money from gamers. The fella also added in the Emperor's theme for comic effect.

Here's the link.

What they should do is just release two versions of the game, one at full price that includes everything, and another downloadable FTP model that allows gamers to pay for what they want rather than be subjected to micro-transactions

Rainstorm81  +   511d ago
Yep it's far too difficult to find official EA or Dice servers, and many times if you are doing good in the game the server owners can kick you out......

BF4 doesn't need rented servers at all, a matchmaking system is the best way to go for online MP IMO

Also the abundance of rented servers shows majority of people don't overly hate micro transactions

"Yep it's far too difficult to find official EA or Dice servers"

If it's too difficult for you to input "DICE" in the search box and look at the owner to check if it's legitimate, you should be playing Tetris on your phone, not a team-objective based MP game.

Let me guess, one of those support guys who never drop ammo?
Rainstorm81  +   510d ago
@tailsker

The problem is when you do that many many times the official servers are full ....also genius, there are also EA servers but since you can't input only two letters in the search there is no way to search for EA servers. The main problem is rented servers simply outnumber official server by a lot.

I actually play bf3 as a team it's the only way to win consistently...it's not CoD, so u guess wrong...besides I use medic and engineer

next time before running your mouth realize some people like the game and still have actual gripes....because it surely isn't perfect.
Detoxx  +   511d ago
Lol, did the Server Browser become to complicated for you to use the search bar? Go back to playing COD
Rainstorm81  +   510d ago
No there aren't enough official servers anymore....that search function works for the first few months until the rented servers flooded the MP
eak3  +   511d ago
I thinking renting your own server is a hell of a lot different than charging someone 1 dollar to reload in mid game if their out of ammo. Yeah private server admins can be dicks and boot people who are better than them, at the same time they get to play the maps they want and play with the people they want too. The EA servers on BF3 sucked in the sense that you rarely saw the same group of people twice, I've always enjoyed playing against the same group for a gaming session. These companies make enough money as is, where they shouldn't be charging people to set up their own server, but people are going to pay to play it their way I guess.
ExCest  +   510d ago
The main problem with rent-a-server for consoles is the huge amount of possible tickets and the TINY amount of people that play on a server at once.

PC never had a problem but that's because the servers are huge.

Also brats like their power.

look what they did to DS & ME, turned them into basically straight forward cover shooters instead of leaving the game play as it was.

Jaqen_Hghar  +   510d ago
That a man will be satisfied. Although a GPU is unknown in a console, 8gb or GDDR5 RAM and 1.84 terraflops should be able to achieve a goal. Killzone's demo was running on much less than 8gb of RAM (4 or 1.5 a man believes) and yet achieved 1080p 30fps. With optimization and months more to work with better specs, a man believes this will be the next gen norm.

for the ps4, i doubt theyre gonna do crazy natural effects if they wanna keep 60fps. my pc lready has way stronger parts too.
saint_seya  +   511d ago
On medium? i run at ultra on 1920x1080 and only drops till 45 fps when its like a looooot on screen in the biggest maps in 32 vs 32... }But most of the time is 55-80 fps in that setting..
raytraceme  +   510d ago
the ps4's gpu is actually closer or more powerful than a gtx 570 which is better than the 560ti that u have. With my amd bulldozer and a gtx 570 I easily get a smooth 60fps on max setting with fxaa.
mrmancs  +   511d ago
so long as it runs at 1080p at 60fps and big team big map mo gameplay then it will be a dream come true , bring it on sony! On another note , why do pcfanboy tits keep trolling ps4 orinated news? Endlessly going on about how a pc gives higher res blah blah blah (any one knows higher res needs bigger screen and even then it needs to be optimized for it with higher detail or its just a case of extra sharpness not detail) or how they blah blah blah well my pc was more powerful than a ps4 3 years ago.. Funny how god of war looks Better than most pc games now and its a ps3 game! Go watch pc vs console comparison videos on YouTube , most of the time its a gain in res and nothing more to note, so please stop reading the latest gaming pc mags and dreaming of your next 1000 dollar,pound card because its not likely to ever be optimized to its full potential like a console.
