Really like the tablet as a map idea

Can ps4 players use the vita?

Nitrowolf21161d ago

I only assume it will eventually

They Should Have Commander Mode On The Vita Too

ShabbaRanks1161d ago

I hope so, after all Vita will have crossplay so why not add battlelog too :P

My surface is going to be getting a ton of use. This looks really cool. Definitely makes the kickstand useful.

orakle441161d ago

so your the one who bought a surface! :P

malokevi1161d ago

Alas, it is I, the sole Surface owner, WEAP at my technical prowess!

ArchangelMike1161d ago

yeah I'm loving he tablet integration. Here's hoping it will work with the Vita. I'm sure Sony will lean on them for the integration. COD:Ghosts is really really going to have to step it's game up this Gen.

Step up with what? More breaking glass?

Wizziokid1161d ago

the missions sound pretty interesting probably my highlight

I don't know how much I'll revert to my phone to setup matches prior to playing, but I guess it's cool to have. I do like being able to change your load-out through your phone, probably be a lot faster. Cool I guess.

for clan matches in bf3 on PS3, i used to have my laptop on my coffee table for load out switching and friend messaging (the PS3 message system has always been, and always will be, the biggest joke i've ever come across in gaming)...however, it was kind of pointless because it wouldn't take effect until you drop out and back in to a server...it wasn't real time last i tried...

so this is cool...but i agree with others...i'm not going to be constantly looking at my cell phone for the mini map...it should just be a pop up from a long press on the controller or something...and a faster/sleaker UI design for the in game load outs...i can't really see how any of this is needed...

Phene1161d ago

Yeh its more gimmicky than anything, why go thru an extra process when you can do it from your controller/game. And in-game, in a shooter at least, its too fast paced to be switching to phones, etc. A cleaner UI would be better as you said.

And yeh I hate doing anything message related on PS3, me and my friends would just call each other.

Kleptic1160d ago

haha totally agree...I can't remember exactly...but it was something like 10 confirmation boxes you had to hit before a message was actually sent...

message received prompt during clan match...

open xmb even with the official thumb-board 'shortcut'...

message highlighted, x to open...

highlight message body, x to read...

scroll through message that for some reason takes up only 10% of your HDTV...

hit o to back out of message body...

down button to highlight reply button...

x to confirm reply button...

highlight message body...again...x to open...

hold delete to get rid of the initial message, so your friends can read it faster.

type reply...

start button to confirm text and close message body...

down button to highlight send button...x to activate

'would you like to send this message to __________'...

x to confirm...

honestly, it couldn't be faster or easier...we had a system that if you couldn't fit your message in the subject, so you could instantly read it...don't send it...

we just had a google talk room's (now 'hangouts' or w/e) opened for important stuff...and/or regular phone calls going.

M16a3... dat son of a bit*h!!!

I love the idea of using a tablet or phone to change loadouts at anytime. Hopefully they will support more than just iOS devices this time.

solidt121161d ago

I just downloaded a iPhone app for Battlelog. Check the store.

famoussasjohn1161d ago

They released it for Android about a year after the iOS app came out. Might be the problem with Android and multiple screen sizes and resolutions. With iOS, there's about 3 screen resolutions the developers have to tinker with.

Kleptic1161d ago (Edited 1161d ago )

I don't think that is accurate...the iOS app came out in 2012, which was way before battlelog had any of these types of features...load out changes and everything didn't show up until well after premium released...

but, i don't think there ever was an official Android app...they kept saying it was coming, but it never did...there were all kinds of 3rd party stats apps on google play, but never the real battlelog app...

didn't matter though, as they released the mobile battlelog web version...so you jumped in through the android browser/mobile chrome, and could do all that stuff anyway...

Kleptic1160d ago

ah i stand corrected...i 'retired' from bf3 around May...figures...that released in June haha...

but the mobile web page worked fine since late last year, for me at least...so i wasn't really missing an official app...
