dont Current Gen have 12 vs 12 and next gen have 32 vs 32?

Bladesfist1662d ago

I think consoles will only have 64 in conquest. Unless they give you more access over the player count like on PC.

Neixus1662d ago

On ps3/360 people could rent servers, change the rules and stuff. So i guess console players can expect the same amount of player counts.

On next gen,ofc.

elhebbo161662d ago

you're correct. that and a bump in resolution and graphical setting.

Plus I heard that the Dualshock 4 was going to recieve some special treatment with the touchpad...

Lior1662d ago

Only 720p on next gen hardware? thats a noob move with some shot clock cheese

"but Battlefield 3 already ran at 60 fps on PC."

I don't if I'm being a little anal about this, but it doesn't work like that on PC. The only way you can "lock" the game at 60 fps is making sure your pc can output the frames that fast and have V-Sync on. Otherwise the fps depends on the PCs power and graphical settings.

chaldo1662d ago

When I have v-sync on, it's always at 59-62

who gives a sh*t next gen is better than current gen
EDIT : makes me laugh when people hit the disagree button when its a fact the current gen is out dated & next gen is going to be superior.

ricochetmg1662d ago

the games are better this gen.

elhebbo161662d ago

o.O?... next gen hasnt even started.

ricochetmg1662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

Even when it starts for the next two years this gen still has better games.

ezop1653d ago

not sure comment make any seance "the games are better this gen", name one game that is better this gen than next gen .. opppps you can't because next gen's not out yet .. also don't for get on NOV 22nd next gen becomes current gen & the current gen which is now, becomes old gen (old being the key word)..

"The appeal to novelty (also called argumentum ad novitatem) is a fallacy in which someone prematurely claims that an idea or proposal is correct or superior, exclusively because it is new and modern" - Wikipedia

That is why people are disagreeing...

HappyWithOneBubble1662d ago

Well everyone is not gonna have the money for a next gen console so playing this on current gen is all most people can do.

USA0071662d ago

I believe it is the first part of your comment that is causing disagrees. If no one cared what the differences were and just bought it because it was marketed as "better," than I feel the companies would try and take a lot more advantage of us.

BobBelcher1662d ago

I'll probably get CoD for current
I'll get BF4 for Next-Gen.
I'm sorry but 64 players is too good to pass on.

Beastforlifenoob1662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

Ill get both of them for Next gen thanks.
Both games are good.
COD: Quick gameplay (they are going for that even more now then ever before)
Battlefield: Highly immersive EPIC combat with amazing cinematic scenes.

Both are good under there on right but for me its BF4 first then Ghosts 2 months after I get Assassins Creed IV (which looks stunning)

cellfluid1662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

All of they features r current generation and 64 player's was done on mag and resistance fall of man. In 720p... Next gen my ass it's the same bs fam!!

cj1pate1011662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

lollllll mag failed and is one of the main reasons the company went under. It also had horrible textures graphics you name it. Have you ever played bf3 on pc maxxed out *full aa hbao ect* 64 players? It be extreamly demanding on a ps3. You would most likly have 10 fps. If it didnt overheat first.

USA0071662d ago

There is more than just player count that goes into making a game. Both resistance and mag have poor graphics compared to bf3/4. They both don't have destruction either, which definitely takes a lot of the resources. Learn more about what goes into making a game/how it runs before you claim a game is bs because it doesn't have something

Swiggins1662d ago

That's my plan exactly. COD for current gen, BF4 for next. Can't wait for either.

xc7x1662d ago

plus its only 64 players for ONE mode,not the whole game like peeps seem to think and say on this site

CEOSteveBallmer1662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

guys try to find the article "Sony's Next Generation Offerings Are Not Equal To The Gaming That Gaming Tablets Offer" here at N4G. never have i seen such a ridiculous article with a delusional author Elronza williams jr. that is just like saying android and tablets are better than xbox and PC because PS3/xbox360/PC shares multiplat games. Wow, i argued with this guy since he messaged me saying that android games is better "graphically" than killzone mercenary. Sad part guys, hes not joking, he is "Serious". i stopped arguing when he said almost all games on android and tablets are better than console games. Wow. a brick wall would have more common sense than this guy

cj1pate1011662d ago

Obv the guys trolling you and you fell for it.

CEOSteveBallmer1661d ago

Bro I know the guy. I had a heated debate with him before he posted the article. after several days this got approved then i somehow knew it could only be him. Sad part bro, Hes SERIOUS.
