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.

I hope so...
You are CFO of EA..

konnerbllb2030d 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_6632029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )

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.

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!

ChronoJoe2029d ago

Well, Kaz hasn't seen the PS4 hardware lol a lot of members higher up don't see the final products till quite late, quite often.

That's why we often get mistakes like Aliens Colonial Marines. :P

FamilyGuy2029d ago

lmao, exactly, it's as if he doesn't look at his own companies games too often.

capnjoe2172029d ago

“I’ve seen our new title and it looks like absolute shit, I mean it is just atrocious; the game developers suck, the new console sucks...actually ya know what? Don't buy this shit. Hell, I don't know what I'm doin' here! Why are you reading this?! Screw video games, anyone who enjoys them, and everything they stand for! I'm out this bitch!” says no CFO ever.

Ragthorn2029d ago

@ Army_of_Darkness
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.

J_Cob2029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )


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.

kikizoo2029d ago

"I agree with that PC has greater graphics"

4,5 years after ps4 ps3 (and not so many games)

CryofSilence2029d 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.

Ragthorn2027d ago

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.

cant wait to know if B4 has 32 v 32 online cuz 8v8 is so last gen.

eak32029d ago

You have that right. BF3 was so much fun ... but 8v8 was just so weak.

Reverent2029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )

8v8? Am I missing something, because I thought BF3 was 12v12 on consoles and 32v32 on PC.

N0S3LFESTEEM2029d ago

64vs64 would be perferable... just don't expect to walk 3 feet without being blown up.

Ace Killa 082029d ago

@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?

AzaziL2029d 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.

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.

DeFFeR2028d 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.

UnholyLight2028d 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 HYBRiiD2029d ago

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_KELRaTH2029d ago

I'd prefer it if they went back to the original BF cycle and offered a few full blown expansions.

Crazyglues2029d ago (Edited 2029d 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 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..

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF2029d ago

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.

stragomccloud2029d ago

Probably looks like Battlefield 3 on PCs.

Absolutely stunning.

_-EDMIX-_2029d ago

Guy sounds like a liar. I'm pretty sure he doesn't even exist. Plus I read the news that MS will have EA as an exclusives on 720z....yeah.

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!

Syntax-Error2029d ago

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.

GuyThatPlaysGames2029d ago

@Peppino7 Battlefield 3 already de-throned CoD!!!

guitarded772029d ago

It's probably gonna get some serious stage time at E3... at the EA presser, and at either the Sony or MS presser.

I'm so excited!!! Battlefield and Killzone are my favorite shooters.

GribbleGrunger2029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )

Don't throw me a crumb EA, just get back to your round table discussions with MS so that Sony can get on with adjusting their own strategy in accordance. 'It looks stunning' ... take your bleeding grape, I want a mellon!

MacDonagh2029d ago

Never ever trust EA.


Check out this video about what they may have planned for BF4 and tell me you're not concerned.

DoomeDx2029d ago

That video is frightening.

But im done with supporting EA products anyways.

I usually buy all my games. My steam list is full of games I bought from the store. But EA is a company im not supporting. Yar

Insomnia_842029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )

Holy f***ing sh*t! that man wants to get killed for saying such subliminal things. That is in no way the future of gaming, that sounds more like the downfall of console gaming. Leave your mobile microtansactions out of my console please.

delboy2029d ago

I agree

Micro transactions will happen, just wait for it.
It won't be over night, but will be introduced slowly.
Like with the frog, you can't trow a frog in hot boiling water, you do it slowly B-)

T22029d ago

Yes ea has ruined many a franchise and wtf is wrong with their servers ? But battlefield so far has been a bright spot

Persistantthug2029d ago

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.

KLegend_992029d ago

hey can you post that video again? It says invalid id

MacDonagh2029d ago


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.

Try also searching for ea john riccitiello on microtransactions if that link doesn't work for you.

cyril sneer2029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )


After seeing that video i can just see it now in sim city 5 they will let you build only 200 meter's of road then after that it will cost you 10p per meter.

thebigman2029d ago

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
