when this game will go gold? the release date is almost here they should inform to their customers already what resolutions will be provided on each plataform

famoussasjohn1732d ago (Edited 1732d ago )

Game should be gold for current gen, may go gold for next gen shortly after considering PS4 comes out 2 weeks after and Xbox One 3 weeks later. It should definitely be nailed down by now though lol.

Kleptic1731d ago

or extremely close...They did say they were up against the wall, nearly having to delay, the ps4 and xbox one versions...simply because both companies kept changing hardware configurations and development policies until nearly summer...

but yeah, if its shipping in less than a month on both new better be gold by now...

Am I the only one who doesn't care about the resolution? I can't understand how this is such a huge issue lately. As long as its at least 720p, it's going to look stellar. I'm not even going to notice.

Judging by the gameplay vids that have been leaking, we are going to be JUST FINE! =D

dantesparda1732d ago

Yes malokevi, you are one of the few that doesnt care about the resolution. Whether people realize it or not, resolution matters to this game. And 720p is just to low, just look at how fuzzy BF3 looks at 720p, is that what you want? Remember all the earlier reports of the textures looking muddy and not much better than BF3? That's because of the low res look. This game barely looks any better graphically than BF3, so it needs all the help it can get graphically. So yes, higher res would help.

malokevi1732d ago

Oh, lol. Then I guess I'll return to blissful ignorance.

BLow1732d ago

I'm not saying I don't care about it at all but I'm not obsessed with it as so many people are on this site and out there in the world. I mean were getting 60fps and 64 players on console so I'm happy. Not a PC gamer at all, SO THIS IS NEW FOR ME. If the game is beautiful, which it will be, and fun to play then what's to complain about. Now console owners will get the true Battlefield experience that the PC guys brag about all the time.

I really believe that if when didn't have people bitch and moan about this and just sat the average person in front of the screen and said here and play this. There would be no complaints. What happened about the games being fun and enjoyable with your friends. People act as if making games are easy and everything is just black and white. This is a launch game and I KNOW things will get MUCH better in the future. That's why I'm excited for next gen. But not matter my reasoning or yours, there will always be someone out there who disagrees with you. That's why I only worry about MY opinion on games as well as the options with the friends I play with.

I already have a job and games are an escape for me. I don't need to waste my time and argue over pixels and resolutions especially today because that's like having another job. No thanks...Holy shit this was a long rant...Enjoy games people!!!!!!!!!!

solar1731d ago

gaming at a higher resolution is critical imo for a shooter. for me, at 1920x1200 on my PC it helps with determining movement from someone say in a bush. the crisper look helps tremendously

I'm 100% sure this game went gold already is les than a month from release date.

we all know that they will make the xbone equal quality to the ps4 version and will make the p version superior.

the game is juts a current gen game and they can't get it run on next gen system 1080p 60fps? yeah right and I got 4 ps4 in one tv and i will play KILLZONE SHADOW FALL at 8k 120fps on my 8K tv /6 or was it 6/?

even PC elitist now that the xbone or at least the PS4 tech is capable of doing this game 1080p at 60fps on ultra setting on this game without a problem.

I mean just look at KILLZONE SHADOW FALL, it makes this game look almost a current gen game.

Kleptic1731d ago (Edited 1731d ago )

uh...i wouldn't say a PS4 could do BF4 1080/60fps on ultra without a get that type of performance on a PC you were dealing with gpu's and cpu's that were significantly faster than the PS4's...yeah, there is some lost efficiency because of windows...but the PS4's ~7870 gpu isn't magically on par with a 7970 (roughly twice as powerful) just because of a simple OS...

and...who cares?...just as some pointed out above...60fps was the thing they needed to get right...and they did...from the distance most people play games from in a living room, you're not going to care all that much about pixel counting when the game is in motion...I'm surprised more people aren't just happy they went with 60fps @ some scaled HD resolution...versus Full HD at 30fps...THAT would've sucked...

Maxor1732d ago

The silence tell all. 720p 60 FPS will be the lock down rez and they're not talking about it to avoid the criticism.

Because if this game is indeed running at 1080p 60 fps I'm sure Dice will be shouting it from the roof tops.

I keep hearing rumours that it's 1080p on PS4 but only 720p on the bone, this isn't helping them.

thrust1732d ago

I heard a rumour it's the other way around, madness! ;)

zpoc1732d ago

hah... i think you just made up that rumor. good try though.

thrust1732d ago

I did wink after it!

Just like the person I replayed to made up his rumour or someone has!

jlo1732d ago

I keep hearing rumours that both consoles are too weak to run it at 1080p

svoulis1732d ago

I also heard you can't run it at all on a 400$ PC

WarThunder1732d ago (Edited 1732d ago )

I keep hearing rumours that a game called Planetside 2 with 2000 players online can run 1080p on the PS4.

chilopirrin1732d ago

i also hear rumours that no matter what resolutions both consoles can reach, both versions will run the game at 60 fps and 64 players and regardless of that, cod ghost will sell a lot more... that´s just sad

Allsystemgamer1732d ago


Yea you can. 100%. A 400$ PC will run it maybe medium to high with AA off

starchild1732d ago


What a cop out. If price were the most important thing we should all be playing on the Wii U since it is the cheapest next gen platform.

But this isn't about price, this is simply about which version is better, which is unarguably the PC version.

Computersaysno1732d ago

720p on Xbone, 900p on PS4, see it, cos its happening.

solar1731d ago

hey are. they use a modified Tablet CPU and a less then exciting GPU onboard. this really isnt next gen, more like gen .5. 1080p/60fps should be standard, the technology to do that has been around for many years now.

Very unlikely to hit 1080p

heliumhead20301732d ago

I read they are both running at 720p on ps4 and Xbox one

TemplarDante1732d ago

Fuck the EA/MS parity bs.The PS4 BF4 is 900P, give it to me like that and keep the Bone version at 720P.
