Can't wait to see BF4 on PS4 !

andibandit1863d ago

They'd better raise the max_player_cap to 64, other wise it's PC for me again.

r211863d ago

Man, I already got used to less than 32 players, how crazy will it be with 64 players?

JoGam1863d ago

@ r21......U should try MAG.

BuLLDoG9091863d ago

iv been playing BF3 on PS3 since launch night, and a month ago i finally got a pc able to almost max it and have put just over 10 hours into the pc version so far.(over 300h on ps3)
The biggest thing iv noticed is on the 64 player servers, regardless of map, its a complete cluster f*k. I think the sweet stop is 32 player battles, in 32 player matches you can run for afew seconds without encountering the enemy.
64 player battles are still fun in a chaos inducing sort of way, but for a proper match its overkill unless they make BF4 maps alot bigger.

Blastoise1863d ago (Edited 1863d ago )

I'd be very disappointed if they don't increase the player cap on consoles, having worse graphics on consoles I can get over easily but 64 players is a must for me.

Anyway...Imagine if Battlefield 4 had submarines, how cool would that be?

Spinal1863d ago

Yep I wanna see 64 player cap on PS4 cause I can't stand EAs battle log on PC and hope I never have to see it again.

irepbtown1863d ago

Having a mixture of 32 and 64 players on different maps would be great. More variety of vehicles (mainly planes/Heli's). BlackhawkS from the Bad Company series would be awesome.

artdafoo1863d ago

64 is an eff fest , in reality mo more than 48 is about right.

HmongAmerican1863d ago

can you fill me in here cause I never play a game with 64 players at once. Beside MAG beta awhile back. What the advantage you gain by having so many players?

InMyOpinion1863d ago

@JoGam - A turd with more players is still a turd. You shouldn't compare MAG to BF3. They are lightyears apart in the quality department.

ZBlacktt1863d ago

@ InMyOpinion

Your screen name says it all. I've plated both games and can say with out a doubt MAG is x 10 more action. Try playing a leader role and doing the missions. Play a game of DOM and you will never look at BF or COD the same way again. Where BF looks and sounds of so pretty. It lacks action on the scare MAG comes with by a long shot.

seanpitt231863d ago

Well if its not 64player on ps4 then there is no point in getting that version only thing is better visuals than the ps3 version people will need more than that for them to fork out a lot of cash for the ps4 version

Derekvinyard131863d ago

Dam imagine 32 players on one team!! Full on destruction

Wenis1863d ago

I remember FrontLines Fuel of War had 50 player servers, and that was awesome. But the actual gameplay was sort of sub-par, since it was the studio's first ever game they developed. So I'm hoping for BF4 we'll get BIG maps (and not tunnel-shooter operation metro nonsense) and a lot of players.

TheFamous11863d ago

This.. I own consoles and a gaming PC, and even though BF3 on consoles was good it sucks to see it gimped. Hopefully this changes with the new hardware.

llMurcielagoll1863d ago


Why wait until BF4 on next gen consoles to try out 64 players online? If you have a PC get BF3 done and done! :P

dkgshiz1863d ago

64 players is generally over kill anyways.

TheSaint1863d ago

I want to agree with this 64 times, but it won't let me.

DeadlyFire1863d ago (Edited 1862d ago )

64 is more than enough and a decent jump for consoles. Hopefully the servers will be decent at launch. Considering the next PC version might have DRM like Simcity. I might side with PS4 version. Comparing my PC to PS4 it averages out to about the same as I would get on my system anyway if not a little better.

Which to me confirms 64 players possible. Makes me think Next gen Nascar could actually have 43 racers. Hopefully bug free. :)

Less than 32 is empty to me. This new generation we have a chance to see 64+ players on nearly every game if they wanted to push it.

After playing one 64 player game you will never want anything less. Well it depends on how often you run across a battlefield in open sight as to how many players you would enjoy playing with. haha. 64 players and someone is going to pick you off for running across that field or try to anyway. Even if you driving. :P

Flavor1862d ago

All you guys who think that 64 is too much, have you not heard all the gripes about the armored kill maps being too big?

The BF3 maps were gimped down for consoles, the Bf2 maps were much, much bigger. And Bf2 supports 128+ players in its mods, with maps that are even bigger.

Fluke_Skywalker1862d ago

I play on PC and I never play on 64 player servers it's not fun at all, like others have said, it's just a cluster fu**. I tend to play on 32 player servers all the time that is the perfect amount imho. More is not always better.

yes.... Battlefield 4 on PS4!
Battlefield 4 will be the best First-Person-Shooter 2013 and 2014!

Cheers for the heads up Mystic Meg :)

Personally XBOX Next/720 etc for me.

It is funny all of the dislikes you got for only saying you liked xbox, but seriously go ps4!

GadgetGooch1863d ago

@zbg31610: Haha I was thinking the same thing lol...Nevermind eh!! :)

DeadlyFire1863d ago

Depends on how much Kinect Microsoft shows off with the new Xbox for me, but PS4 is defiantly coming to my house. Xbox720 I am skeptical of until I see it in action.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1863d ago (Edited 1863d ago )

Ps4 will be awsome! But I can't play this with a controller. I need to check both corners of a room and I can't do that in 1.5 secs with a controller. ugh.. sorry.

I will get infamous over bf4 on console.

nosferatuzodd1863d ago

Lol I hear you to each is own if mouse makes you feel better then by all means

solid_warlord1863d ago

How can u control something if u cant hold it...controllers u can hold. Keyboard and mouse u just wank on it.

DeadlyFire1863d ago

Have you ever heard of just read this snippet below.

The Eagle Eye is a keyboard and mouse converter for the PS3 and Xbox 360, that allows you to use a keyboard and mouse of your choice instead of a controller. Using our proprietary Eagle Edit program, you can modify your settings and key bindings to play the game in a way that best suites you, with the added control and precision that a keyboard and mouse offers.

To me this is awesome because I use a monitor for my PS3/X360 to game on. So it works out pretty good.

SDF Repellent1863d ago

Can't wait to see BF4 on PC with Max setting!

Crystallis1863d ago

@ BullDog. Depends on the map. 64 players on operation metro is madness. 32 players on metro is doable. I played Bf3 on my buddies PC and 64 players on Caspian border is pure heaven. Most of BF3 maps are catered to 64 players.

Sucitta1863d ago

3 months ago I received 64 disagrees on N4G for claiming that BF4 would prolly launch on ps4 as well as ps3..

just sayin.

Game of the Year. Yup. I said it. Feel free to add the world Multiplayer to the front if it makes you feel better.

classic2001863d ago

Its going to be a great game but FPS like this will likely not win many goty if any at all

Derekvinyard131863d ago

The story should be a little better IMO

xPhearR3dx1863d ago

I didn't care too much for Battlefield 3 until I switched to PC gaming and played it there. It's like a completely new game. However, I'd be more excited if Bad Company 3 was being revealed instead of BF4. I've always been a console gamer up until recently, but Bad Company 2 was one of the best FPS military games I ever played. That Vietnam Expansion? Oh man, that was amazing.

DarthJay1863d ago

Yes, I would have preferred Bad Company 3, but more Battlefield ______ is always a good thing.

Donnieboi1863d ago

Vietnam was like crack. Or should I say opium?

unchartedxplorer1863d ago

I don't know. I think GTA V is going to take that title

Minato-Namikaze1863d ago

Last of Us, doesn tmatter what else comes out at this point. But 9-10 games can lay claim to a GOTY award since almost everybody gives them out, lol

MooseWI1863d ago

Thought it was the 26th.

eliteslaya131863d ago

The 26th is probably just for the press.

MooseWI1863d ago

Oh alright, so like a closed event that no one can speak of until the 27th. I am in no rush to hear about BF4 to be honest, I can wait. Have enough to play with BF3 already and it's a year out maybe more for BF4.

Typical-Guy1863d ago

Yes, bring on the next-gen goodness...
