Electronic Arts Preps for PlayStation 4, Xbox One

GT: While Battlefield 4 will most likely be the best on PC in terms of visual quality, the game will be no sloth on PS4, as EA’s COO has confirmed to Fox Business News at Sony’s new PlayStation Headquarters in Silicon Valley. (PS4)

Well this is quite assuring. Leaves no question how "monstrous" the 1st party games should be as well.

the first party games will be the best software on the market, just as it was with PS3. The power of the PS4 is simply amazing and devs around the world are praising it in comparison to the bone. Already got it preordered with killzone and extra ds4.

I am happy and glad that PS4 will be great.

BF4 will be playable on PS4 at TGS
AngelicIceDiamond  +   655d ago
I just notice the headline didn't match the elements in the video. Peter Moore never brought up BF4.

(Allformats SMH)

Either way, I'm excited.

In general if I didn't play a single exclusive from last gen I would be ok with that. First party games used to entice but now multiplats just dominate the gaming landscape.
lastdual  +   655d ago
Early PS3 days: Devs complained about the cell architecture, got called lazy and ignorant.

Early PS4 days: Devs praise Sony's new architecture, get called wise and honest.

...It's a little scary when corporations are able to garner the kind of zealous, single-minded devotion that is usually observed in religions.
abusador  +   656d ago
First party Sony games will set the visual benchmarks like thy did last gen due to the ps4 being superior to xbone by a good margin, however expect most third parties to gimp multiplats due to pressure by microsoft and bcus thy will be developing towards the least common denomintor bcus its cheaper and will allow parity through consoles. It is a big worry for ys gamers but thts just how game politics go.

Hopefully dice doesnt let us down.

I expect as much as well, but I also expect the frame rate at the very least will be better on the ps4 versions. Visuals may be paired down, whatever, frame rate is something they really have to try to gimp, and I don't see them doing that. That really is all I care about; its the reason I bought a 360 this gen; so I could have the better versions of multiplatform games that were not on pc...(Red Dead)...oh ya also fallout3 and New Vegas because those games on pc crash like freaking crazy...but pc only gamers dare not talk about bugs and crashes.
monkeyDzoro  +   656d ago
What is funny about it is : MS has a huge partneship right now with EA but still, DICE devs are praising PS4 like holy Jesus instead of tha bone. LooL.
You know, when you do things right (PS4) it will always play in your favor.
LaChance  +   656d ago
Its Peter Moore at a PlayStation event. No Dice employees here in a 2000km radius.

Next time at least click on the link.
NoLongerHereCBA  +   656d ago
Exactly what LaChance says. She only asked about the playstation versions of games. This whole story has nothing to do with the Xbox One thus you can't use this to say that the PS4 outclasses the Xbox One.

Atleast watch the vid, before you come with a biased view.
BattleTorn  +   655d ago
Only on N4G does such a incorrect comment garner more agrees than disagrees.

Did you watch the video? And know who was talking?
Syntax-Error  +   655d ago
Where did this clown hear this? I didnt hear anything like that. That sounds completely made up. Are you like 17 years old nad trying to make yourself look cool? Link ONE just ONE article where developers at DICE said the prefer PS4 to Xbox One
monkeyDzoro  +   655d ago
LooL. People are getting mad here. Have you seen a gameplay footage of BF4 on X1 ? Nope. All gameplays people have seen so far were running on PCs or PS4 dev kits.
And DICE previously said that it's a pity X1 is not coming in Sweden at launch, then Swedish people will be buying PS4 instead.
Now looking at these you can clearly tell what console devs are supporting. While EA has a partnership with MS. Where the hell have you people seen in my comment I mention anything about this vid. This article was EA's BF4 made by DICE devs, and I just mention what DICE devs said before. Use your brains people, use your brains.

I don't know what's worse, your blatant insecurity regarding which system you've chosen to buy or the salt count in your post.

I think some people on here were expecting, or rather hoping, that Sony would repeat itself this console generation with another 'ps3-esc' console again and are disheartened by how much good news the PS4 has genuinely received since February.

I think he was talking about how no one wants to buy a new console until there's games, but devs don't want to make games until there's a large user-base.

I personally don't agree with him, but I think that's what he was referring to.

I don't trust DICE or EA. Their word means not a thing to me. He was not direct he said that BF4 will be monstrous on PS4. I need to see the game running on the PS4, not the PC not anything else. Plus I don't want the system to be gimmped by the shortcomings of xbox1. It better be noticeably better on the PS4 not less and not equal. No excuses, DONE.

That was EA buddy not Sony. EA said this. I just was referring to both EA and DICE because DICE made earlier statements about the game not being inferior on consoles.

I have an feeling The PS4 version will become the standard when it comes to consoles...
Ulf  +   655d ago
No, the PSXB4One version will. You know they will be basically identical, no matter what strengths each hardware platform may have.

EA, nor any 3rd party, will spend (read: waste) extra money to make one console version "more special", when they don't want to endanger their business relations with both MS and Sony in the first place, let alone make less profit by spending MORE money on just ONE version, just so they can... what? Hurt the sales of the other version? That's stupid.

It's in their (publishers) best interest to keep them as close as possible, as the fiercest competition between HW manufacturers yields them better/more competitive business deals with them, via the nature of capitalism.

Publishers are fanboys of money, not any particular HW manufacturer or player base.

It's nice to see that somebody on this site has a clue how multiplats are going to turn out next gen. Devs aren't going to waste time or money making one version look 0.1% better just to make fanboys happy. Don't get your hopes up.

Just a small comment on what he wanna us to believe it will be.
Pure good old marketing lie.

And I do hope I´m wrong.

And it should be!! PS4 is probably max settings for BF4, i am mindblown if they fuck it up.
creepjack  +   655d ago
LMAO, BF4 will not be running at max setting on the PS4. Everybody needs to seriously temper yheir expectations here. The PS4 isn't all that powerful. More powerful than the Xbox One maybe, but truth be told it's already behind when it comes to current high end tech, and it's not even out yet.

Watching this Fox News woman try to talk games is painful. In a segment with Jack Tretton yesterday she held up a DualShock 3 and called it the "hand operating things" before saying the PS4 will read hand and facial motions.


<smh> No sweetheart, that's the Xbox One that reads hand and facial motions.
Vip3r  +   655d ago
After she said "Hand Operating thing", she should be mentioning anything gaming related ever again.
xKugo  +   655d ago
Quite perplexing to know that we still have NO information whatsoever of the Xbox One version of BF4. The only news about the Xbone version is the fact that it was running on hidden PCs playing the game with a Xbox One controller at the Microsoft booth. Xbox fans should be concerned...
DivineAssault  +   655d ago
Fox news doing a piece on nx gen EA titles with PS logos everywhere.. PS4 seems to be the center stage in the media involving nx gen.. Anyway, EA is a mega AAA company that isnt going anywhere.. IDK but it seems that EA ruined some of my favorite dev studios.. Bioware took a nosedive with mass effect imo.. It no longer felt like a rpg to me.. More of a casual shooter with minor rpg elements

Hopefully the XBone version of BF4 doesn't hold back the PS4 version too much.
