'Battlefield 4' used to explain EA's vision of cross-platform gaming

XMNR: During an earnings call Wednesday, Electronic Arts explained that gamers have up to give game-enabled devices from consoles to smartphones to tablets to PCs. EA Labels president Frank Gibeau described a scenario where gamers use multiple devices to play and keep track of Battlefield 4 when it is released later this fall for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Truth be told it doesn't sound too much different then what is going on, Outside of the commander mode on tablet that is.

But ever though I'm a pretty hardcore gamer across a lot of games, I rarely ever check news, and I only ever check my stats every couple of days or weeks. I also don't usually check out what my friends are doing unless we are about to do something together.

Of course, everyone does something a little different so adding it is in no way a bad thing. The more they add the better off we are, As long as it doesn't actually take away from the core experience.

commander mode made perfect since to be used on wiiu with the gamepad yet they choose to ignore it. shame.

I don't think the WiiU is powerful enough to handle it.

Not enough RAM, weaker CPU and especially GPU. It just wouldn't be the same game. No fully-destructible buildings collapsing in real-time, no 64-player online...

Not to mention the animosity that EA has toward Ninty.

Never mind mobile/tablet integration...now that PS4 and Xbox One are pretty much customised PC's, any chance of true cross platform play?

PS4

vs PC

XB1

Never mind the console wars..this would be truly epic!

If there was cross platform play the PC players would have unfair advantage because of the mouse.
sway_z  +   674d ago
Not necessarily...both PS4/Xbox One have USB...and most people already have a desk top PC in the home.

A simple Keyboard/Mouse option in the controller menu will remedy that!

The disadvantage will be if you choose to play via controller.
Hufandpuf  +   674d ago
True but if that's the case then I'd rather selecting an option to cross play than be required to cross play. Because if I didn't have a KB&M, I don't want to be at a disadvantage for that.

Nobody mentioned Mandatory cross platform play???

It's just an option to play PS4/XB1 FPS's using KB&M...

My entire comment was hyperthetical, so why the disagrees dumb cattle people!!

Not directed at you Hufandpuf...but some people are thick as S##T man!!

It would be awkward with a keyboard/mouse for PS4/Xbox One whatsoever. Why not do it more simple? Like, cross-play just between PS4 & Xbox One. I think it would be simpler and more even for players of each console.

Sure i like playing on PC and i am use to K&M but i just prefer a controller better. But thats just me.

I remember like 2 E3's ago when they did have a cross platform game on the 360 PS3 and PC sony and MS never accepted it I guess.
