Battlefield 4: PS4 controller layout revealed, Vita Remote Play hinted & DICE confirms no support for keyboard/mouse
why is there a need for a hint of Remote Play? Sony mandated ALL PS4 games to have remote play, right?
Yeah, it's required.
Sony mandated on first party games and 3rd party exclusives maybe. The rest could of been optional.
Not sure how Battlefield would work with remote play, there would need to be 5-6 different control ses for all the vehicles, unless they made the jets and helis operable by gyroscope, which would be bad ass.
It's technically not required, just happends, at OS level. No extra development needed.
@RadioactiveTwinkey No Sony made it part of the certification process for all games. The only exceptions are camera/move based ones like to say a just dance style game etc.
That sucks. ;(
This is fantastic... Though, I'm strapped for cash and Killzone:Shadow Fall is my FPS at launch with BF following sometime next year.... After inFamous:Second Son
I liked! More similar to COD (crouch and melee)
I don't really like that r2/l2 replaced r1/L1 for aiming and shooting
You can change it to L1,R1.
R2 and L2 are perfect Northampton the ds4 has better triggers.
I hate aiming with L2 but LOVE shooting with R2. I'd rather R1 + L1 than L2 and R2. But L1 and R2 is the best. I hope you can flip the buttons indapentantly.
We have to hold the DS4 first. It is the natural position in the X360 controller. For sure you'll easily get used to it if it's not possible to change the layout. Edit: sucks, I replied to myself, lol
All this news on PS4 BF4 sounds promising, considering getting it for PS4 instead of PC this year. Although I'll no longer be able to play at ultra settings the PS4 version still looks pretty solid!
My thoughts exactly.
Looks like a good button layout.
I honestly don't know why people are thinking that it is only a possibility that remote play for Battlefield 4 will get supported. It is a 100% requirement for any game that wants to get published on the PS4 to support remote play, unless it uses the PlayStation Camera. For a PS4 game to be published, it has to meet a certain set of standards and quality control.
I was just gonna say the same thing.
..so was I, heh. Remote play is done by the PS4 hardware, the only thing developers need to do is supply a control scheme for the Vita.
Remote Play is really being taken to heart by a lot of people. Pretty excited about playing Resogun and possibly BF4 on my Vita. That would be really cool.
Diablo 3 on VITA BOOMSHAKALAKA BOOOOMMMMM
Haha Another epic possibility.
i want R1 and L1
Then change the button layout trough the settings screen damn.. Some people just whine about everything.
stfu aint nobody whinnig i just prefer R1 and R2 and who said that would be a choice...
What if they don't support button mapping, that's my concern, I can't see my self playing FPS with the R2 for firing, it's not natural for me
They should allow custom button mapping in all games, as well as kb/m support.
You talk like they removed R1 and L1 from the game lol
naw but mostlikely alot of shootin games might adopt r2 and l2 as the primary layout
PS gamers primarily use l1,R1 so of course there will be an option to switch.
You haven't tried ds4.
64 players MP on the Vita?
yes, there is a serate chip inside the ps4 that handles remote play. It's pretty seamless, and all that needs to be done is the control scheme.
This is ridiculous. You can use fight sticks for fighting games, wheels for driving games, but you can't use k/m for shooters. If it's about unfairness, then the first two shouldn't be supported as well.
You can still be competitive with the other methods of controls if you're using a controller, but KB/M allows far too much of an advantage.
Options are always a good thing,though.
Yeah, remote play. Why the hell would I want to play my PS4 games on a small screen when I have my 55 inch to rock on?
Oh, I dont know...Maybe so when I'm outside my home, such as an airport, school, friends home, restraunt, coffee shop, i can keep playing MY DAMN GAME OUTSIDE OF MY HOUSE! I dont know? why do you think i want to play it on a small screen? i mean, doesnt that make sense to you?
Pretty sure R1L1/R2L2 and melee/crouch will be switchable. Nice to see touchpad is used to battlelog menus, I hope its slso works for customization/deployment menus.
YES! No KB/M! Controllers FTW!
Said no one ever
This L2/R2 ads/shoot is retarded. We ads and shoot on L1/R1 since ps1. And that's the right way on any ps controller.
Playstation controllers aren't good for shooters.
No controller is good for shooters.
booo.... still no kb/m, i'll never play shooting games at console -_-
Well, I'm excited.. For one :) Particularly regarding the remote play features.
