EA: Battlefield 4 is "well-positioned" versus rivals, will "exceed expectations"

EA's intensely proud of what it's achieved with DICE's Battlefield 4, company executives told investors in an earnings call last night. Following a strong E3 showing, preorders are apparently "stacking up well" against preorders of Battlefield 3. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

"exceed expectations", if that's mean letting us go to outer space and shoot people down from up there, that'll be awesome. Quick, Get into the Rocket!

i'm not getting this game. EA are pricing their games waaaay too expensive.
I'm getting Killzone: Shadow Fall, this games feels like a true next gen game to me.

[facepalm*] they're the same price

I may pick up BF4 later but I first want to play Killzone Shadow Fall. That way I can get an idea of the high bar of fps before I start playing multi console lowest common denominator (xbone) games. Killzone will not be limited by the lowest common denominator delima and therefore will take full advantage of the power offered by the PS4.

I call bullshit on the "lowest common denominator" prediction.

There's every possibility that the Frostbite 3 engine scales with the platform it's running on. That should mean that the PS4 version wouldn't be held back by the Xbox One version (or the 360/PS3 versions, for that matter). Visual quality and performance of BF4 will likely be maximized (to some extent) on whatever platform it's running on.

LMAO....just...LMAO! BF4 is the most next gen looking FPS bar far, dude. have you not seen that game running?
ATi_Elite  +   931d ago
Starforge will allow you to do that!

Not so amped up about BF4 so I'll wait till a good sale arrives. More Amped up about Titanfall.
RegorL  +   931d ago
Because you can enter a vehicle? Or that you feel great when succeeding in taking down an opponents overpowered vehicle?

Wow, guess you can't do that in BF4 - or?

What exactly is it in Titanfall that ignites your interest?

Titanfall might really be EAs way of educating FPS gamers to appreciate vehicles...
MariaHelFutura  +   932d ago
I think they're correct. This time they probably outsell COD and they deserve it, it's the better game. Bf4 is the most preordered game on both systems, COD isn't even top 5 on either.
MWong  +   932d ago
I hope it happens. It's well deserved, BF has been constantly upping it's game with every installment unlike it's competition. So with BF4 I hope they blow the competition out of the water, in not just game play, but the entire package.
nosferatuzodd  +   932d ago
that will never happen too much cod toad out there
Darrius Cole  +   931d ago
I don't know about outsell it, but BF4's numbers will be much closer to COD than BF3's numbers were. It may outsell COD on PS4 & Xbone but there are still a lot more current gen systems out there. COD will sell more on PS3/360.

not that im sticking up for cod im a huge battlefield fan
but... didnt they say the same thing when bf3 came out
nosferatuzodd  +   931d ago
exactly listen i hate COD has well but if people really don't support this game it would be sad, this game should be getting that ridiculous COD sale Numbers not that crappy Call of dogy

Love the way EA take credit for something that a group of talented guys and gals at DICE made that they then just bought.

EA might now own the studio but for me Battlefield will always be DICE. I wish I could buy the game direct from DICE with no publisher to get in the way.
Hufandpuf  +   931d ago
without EA DICE wouldn't be as big as it is today. EA funds DICE projects you know. That's what publishers are for.
GodGinrai  +   931d ago
64 players. 1080P @ 60FPS acreoss all formats. dynamic enviroments. say they are pretty well positioned to take the top multiplayer FPS spot.
MidnytRain  +   931d ago
I thought the console versions were at 720p? They neglected to mention the last time I checked.
o-Sunny-o  +   931d ago
I hope for an serious overhaul of BF3. Killcams, destruction back, fix classes, no flashlights/lasers, and more vehicles! ^~^ I am hoping.
Animal Mutha 76  +   931d ago
Do you think kill cams are a good idea in BF? In COD they are mainly used to show where your attacker is.

That wouldn't do my BF sniping or machine gun emplacement/defending B much good for example.

The current kill cam in BF3 can give you an idea of their location but its not always obvious if you are in cover.

@Sunny below.

Fair enough mate. Yep some deaths are like WTF, how???

I want to see how I died mostly. Some deaths just are unexplained to me. Idk I'm just saying. ^~^'
dcj0524  +   931d ago
Have you seen any of the countless hours of BF4 gameplay at E3?
holdmyown83  +   931d ago
yeah so i think im going to just get Killzone 4 and Watch Dogs
Einhert  +   931d ago
Game just does nothing for me at all, just looks like BF3 with some minor tweaks and bits of polish and still a lot missing from it compared to what BF2 had.

The sea combat teaser compared to what has been shown thus far is disappointing.

Here was me thinking we would see the return of submarines and at least destroyer class ships.
JetsFool3500  +   931d ago
DLC Maybe? Remember They Brought Dirtbikes To BF3 On DLc
Einhert  +   931d ago
would be a push and I don't fancy paying for something that was in a game that is over 8 years old that should have been expanded upon.

Im defo getting it, my first game on next gen for sure
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   931d ago
If killzone Shadowfall is like kz2 I'm canceling my bf4 pre order as it won't see the light of day.

But if Shadowfall is like kz3 well then kzsf will collect dust and I will be playing bf4
shibster88  +   931d ago
So far bf4 looks the most impressive game so far on next gen, and also battlefront will be epic, any game dice releases will be just awesome.
Elwenil  +   931d ago
I just hope they fix the rank and make it more like BF2. This crap of opening up all the weapons after the first 20 ranks or so and then when you reach 50 or whatever it's just a number is a bit ridiculous. I want some progression, something to work towards. A number means absolutely nothing to me.

EA: Battlefield 4 is "well-positioned" versus rivals, will "exceed expectations"
With 60fps, 1080p, destruction, dynamic environments, and 64 players, yeah, I'd say that they're pretty well-positioned :)
