It's pretty funny. Now the CoD devs have had their trademark "60 FPS feel" ripped from them. Blatant laziness shows.
Heartnet  +   780d ago
Blatent laziness? what cause on a new powerful console Dice have finally managed to get 60 fps on battlefield, whereas on previous console this was no possible but for Activision it was...

I dont see any laziness anywhere

Yes because COD and BF3 are on the same playing field. /s

You're kidding right, BF3 has levels big enough to fit all of COD's levels inside just one of them. Also destructible environments, 32 players on console, squads and vehicles, planes, boats, ATV's, Choppers, tanks. COD has small tight confined levels, 16 players online, no vehicles, and free kills for getting kill-streaks.

Did you read the article...

Read.

During today’s live streaming of Battlefield 4 multiplayer at E3, DICE confirmed in an on-screen interview that the PlayStation 4 version will indeed support 64 players. When the game was unveiled yesterday EA’s E3 press conference, DICE said that the Xbox One would support 64 players, but there was no mention of 64 players on the PS4. Both next-gen consoles will run the game at 60 frames per second as well.

Do you guys even read the articles? It was confirmed to have 64 players on XBox One early in the day, this story serves to confirm that it has 64 players on PS4 as well.
MariaHelFutura  +   780d ago
No problem, I read 10% of the articles on N4G. Thanks for the clarification.
torchic  +   780d ago
not cool.
MariaHelFutura  +   780d ago
it works for me, 90% of articles are garbage.
inf3cted1  +   780d ago
I guess you like to read garbage then
MariaHelFutura  +   780d ago
No, everyonce and a while I'll say something stupid, like everyone else. It's usually from not reading somethimg I should have. It's a decent trade off for evading garbage.
jmac53  +   780d ago
Not reading 90% of the time leads to saying stupid things 100% of the time.
MariaHelFutura  +   780d ago
Not when 90% are 90% garbage. This getting pretty math heavy. :P
torchic  +   779d ago
I don't read all the articles sure but at least I don't walk into the comments and then comment like I've read the article.

but if it works for you then I guess it's all good.

ea conference when they showed campaign on shitflops they said its 60 fps.
Cuzzo63  +   779d ago
Wonder where all the pc extremist are that promised 720p and 30 fps on PS4. Looks like Sony pulled a move on them also while fooling MS into DRM
Vip3r  +   780d ago
Maybe the lack of RAM on the X1 is hampering it?
WorldGamer  +   780d ago
They might be able to do 30 players at 30 fps. Not ideal, but still a step up on the X1. Who knows tho, maybe they are still working out the kinks.

"When the game was unveiled yesterday EA’s E3 press conference, DICE said that the Xbox One would support 64 players, but there was no mention of 64 players on the PS4. Both next-gen consoles will run the game at 60 frames per second as well."

please read the article before you guys comment, makes you look silly.
WorldGamer  +   780d ago
Lol, calm down son, just poking a little fun is all. No need to get all sensitive. I'm sure the X1 will be a fine system.
ExCest  +   780d ago
I doubt it. BF3 only used about 3.5-4 GB on the PC version (with Windows running total) so I'm pretty sure the Xbox One has enough ram.

ALSO, read the article. It says, "DICE said that the Xbox One would support 64 players, but there was no mention of 64 players on the PS4. Both next-gen consoles will run the game at 60 frames per second as well."

Yep. If the dev is at least semi-talented, they shouldn't need too much RAM anyways. BF3 on max settings used at most 1.25-2GB of RAM (not counting windows of course) on my PC. I think they put 8GB in the one for the multitasking sh*t.

The only times I've maxed out the 8GB on my PC was when Windows 8 first came out and BF3 had a memory leak bug with it lol.
WorldGamer  +   780d ago
I thought this was divulged yesterday. Sounds sick tho, but most of my friends will get it on PS3..... might need to abandon those guys to game in the Next gen. lol.
FalconR289  +   780d ago
Word!
Rearden  +   780d ago
It's 64 players on Xbox One and 60 fps, they said it during the reveal yesterday. Both next gen system run the game at 60 fps and support 64 players. No word on whether it's 720 or 1080p.
LAWSON72  +   780d ago
Them not saying probably means 720p because if it was 1080p wouldnt you want to clarify that.
ExCest  +   780d ago
Didn't they say 720p before or was that just speculation?

I have a feeling they might do 720p so they can add AA and other stuffs while keeping 60 fps.
flipflopfacts  +   780d ago
Actually someone release faked info about the game being 720p at 60fps. He later came out and admitted they were fake.
ExCest  +   780d ago
@^ Oh, I didn't know that. Thanks!
mrmancs  +   780d ago
I only have one thing to say > :-)
stage88  +   780d ago
PS4 it is.
LAWSON72  +   780d ago
For BF4 I would go PC if you actually had a good rig, like myself. I do agree though that the ps4 is a great choice and I am hoping to get one at launch but multiplat is best on PC so probably get Knack or Madden with it unless Driveclub turns out great and I was misinformed about PS Plus members getting it.
Eyesoftheraven  +   780d ago
At what resolution?? We're in for one hell of a generation if it's running all that at 1080p/60

I knew the next gen consoles are capable of such things like 60fps and 64 Player, Resolution will be true HD, so 1080. But if the Xbox One has the VGA function like the Xbox 360, you will be able to Play on 1920x1080 on a big Television with VGA Support. I will buy both consoles for the full potential. Buying high end PC's will be no more neccessary...

KABOOOOMM!!!!
Sevir  +   780d ago
Nice, this beimg a multiplatform engine
And looks this good gives me smiles because Killzone: Shadow Fall will likely run at 60 fps and 1080p :-)
Pandamobile  +   780d ago
It's already been confirmed that KZ:SF will run at 30 FPS
HeavenlySnipes  +   780d ago
Would rather have a higher resolution with a 45 FPS cap (so drops aren't noticable)

Nevertheless, initially we were told that PS4 and X1 would be 720p and 30FPS so this is a pleasant surprise. Now COD has nothing on Battlefield because both run at the same resolution (unless COD is at 1080p now and I wasn't made aware of it)
sourav93  +   780d ago
Who initially told you that BF4 would run 720p at 30fps on next gen consoles? PC elitists? This is the first time DICE has released any info on BF4's framerate on next gen consoles. Though previously the CTO of EA mentioned the game runs at 1080p and 60fps on the ps4 (and most likely the XBONE as well, but it wasn't mentioned).

yeah bitch finally bf full potential fuck the rest

"Thomas Puha: Much of this I have already mentioned. Sure - you can walk into a store and assemble a PC and its hardware specification is better on paper than when the PS4 and Xbox one, but that's not the reality. Console avoid all the performance bottlenecks of PC hardware. You optimize, standardize and provide top of a wonderful operating system level, so they are superior in many ways. You can create so many different ways for software on a console platform and optimize it for what it is not possible for PC. This is the reality!"

It sucks my friends are poor, I need a new squad. -_-

64 players is nothing new (Resistance 2). Don't know how many fps's that ran on though.
