‘Battlefield 4’ Xbox One impressions from Xbox One Tour event | Examiner

XMNR: Battlefield 4 is part of the Xbox One Tour that hit Atlanta on Friday and this Examiner was able to give the game’s multiplayer a spin. This happened in the midst of controversy over rumors that the game is running at 720p on the next-gen console so how did the actual experience compare to rumors? (Battlefield 4, Xbox One)

Glad to see the x1 version chugging along well.

How is chugging along well when it was to someones opinion.Not everybody is going to know the difference between 720p and 900p.The one thing im glad to hear is that its running at 60fps and it was fun.I think maybe I have over stepped my boundries in the other posts concerning the resolution for the xboxone and gotten away from what BF4 is about.Its easy to get caught up in all the stuff on N4g I must admit.I guess it shouldnt really matter to me what the resolution is on the Xboxone since im not purchasing one.I hope that the game is a succes on both next gen consoles along with PC.I cant say much for current gen since I got to watch the whole SP and Mp on twitch tv yesterday before they pulled it late last night.I have to be honest with everyone is that current gen looks like shit graphically and gameplay wise.Not to impressed but llike I said im buying it for the PS4 so there wont be any worrys there.peace out and happy gaming to all those looking forward to BF4

Well, I just read that the author found the demo to be smooth, held a constant framerate, and looked hence, my 'glad to see the x1 version chugging along well' comment.

Oh, and I also got to play bf4 a few times on a few events, so there's that. And from what I played, I can't say I don't agree with the author.

And I don't know why I got those 15+ disagrees for my original comment.. I just said that I'm glad to hear that the game is coming along well on the x1. Anything wrong with what I said?

merely mentioning the X1 without any sort of snide or sarcastic comment, is enough to warrant disagrees on this site, let alone comments that actually reflect a positive attitude towards the system.

have you played them. no have you seen them side by side no.i have. must say ps4 very nice killzone looked and played great.but xbox one just ran so much better.on call of duty ghosts and battlefield 4 ps4 crashed twice. as for graphics lol 50 percent not even 2.if xbox one was running 720 when played battlefield 4 and ghost they looked the same.i am getting both but for online gaming ps4 will never come close by a long shot

It is funny how all the specialist here keep jumping on every rumor that they fine negative on the internet, regarding X1 and then try to sell them as fact. Before the saliva dries on the keyboard, here comes someone who actually played the MULTIPLER, not even the single player, to tell them how gorgeous the game is. Whether 720p or 1080p or what ever in between, it is gorgeous.

But we all know that has really never been what this is all about. You really hunger for proof of concept. You want undisputable proof that PS4 is 50% more powerful than X1. You can put away the Viagra and let that boner go down. You are not going to get that proof, because its just is not the case.

LMFAO that's the Funniest yet Truest Post I have seen on N4G in a while.


Fanboy = PS4 50% more Powerful than the XB1 FACT!!!!

Me = "Yet we just witness the almighty Killzone:sf get downgraded and PS4 can't run BF4 at 1080p EITHER"

Fanboy = 900p is BETTER! Sony did it for a reason!

Me = "LMFAO"
VoodooRob  +   835d ago
Couldn't agree with you more.
4Sh0w  +   835d ago
Yeah and whats funny is COD Ghosts would be the worst example to prove superiority of either console, no hate but COD Ghosts is just a modest upgrade graphically over the current gen versions.

Hm, all you MS fanboys going on and on, when finbars comment wasnt even really bad. Yet this site is overrun with nothing but Sony fanboys right? You fanboys are delusional.

Fact! dropping from 1080 to 900 resolution and dropping from 150K to 85K polygons on Ryse is a downgrade, PERIOD!

Going from 30FPS SP/MP to 30fps+ SP/60FPS MP plus more textures is a upgrade, FACT!

I know the truth hurts, especially when the X1 has been nothing but a letdown, but you fanboys have got to deal with it.

Just about every game on X1 has downgraded, KI (to 720), DR3 to a dynamic resolution (in other words will drop below 1080), and now its look like COD & BF4 on X1 might be at 720.

All the meanwhile, DC is targeting 60fps. All i see is downgardes on X1 and upgrades on PS4. Honestly i think both systems are underpowered, but the X1 has got it even worst and you MS fanboys are the bigger fanboys for supporting such a company as MS with their greedy intentions and their inferior system for more money.

Bigpappy  +   835d ago | Well said
You should have said X1 is an overpriced piece of junk. That would have earned about 160 agree if this gets to the hot topic session.

I don't care about agree so I just say WTF I think needs to be said. If I can't say what I really feel, what is the point of posting anything.

Ace_Pheonix  +   835d ago
You are mistaking bias for general concensus. The site isn't biased just because they see the XBONE for what it is. And I wouldn't say it's a piece of shit, I'm sure it'll play games just fine. But the fact that MS is a dick and their console is inferior is too obvious for the majority to ignore this gen.
H0RSE  +   834d ago

But when you speak of the X1 being "inferior," what are talking about? Hardware capabilities? This doesn't equate to the capabilities of the console as a whole. What about functionality, features, OS design, online service, accessories, games, etc. In these regards, "inferiority" largely comes down to preference. I might be playing BF4 at 720p instead 900p, but I'll be playing with my friends, which results in a better overall experience.

Sorry, but I haven't seen anything even after reading the article.

"The multiplayer demo was based on a small slice of the Zavod 311 map with an 8 versus 8 Domination map."
No 64 player battles.

"The current rumors of 720p for not just Battlefield 4 but Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Xbox One were started Saturday by former IGN writer and current Furious Fanboy site operator Jeremy Conrad. "

"It didn’t look as good as the PC version in the recent beta"

Even after reading this, I really don't see anything good nor "stunning".
He did say it once tough.

I would have much preferred seeing how the game actually look first hand.

DEMO.This PINGAS Demo has 8v8.
1)In the full version for next gen consoles, there are 64 players.
2)It is a rumor...Don't try to say that it's a fact.
3)You are just sad...
PFFT  +   835d ago
You know that anything and almost everything coming out from that idiot Jeremy Conrad's mouth could be straight out BS right? That fool DESPISES MS with all his being and he is clearly a Sony nut dangler. So any little rumor that is negative towards the XB1 he will use it to stir uneasiness within the crowds. So i would take everything he says with a ton of salt.

it's because the CBOAT posted a cryptic message on neogaf which only Ps4 fans can decypher, ok, because only ps4 fans should decypher the message and anyone else who decyphers the message will not get it right and will possibly expose his true identify from the way he writes and that will expose him in the industry and that cannot be his will as he writes cryptically only for the chosen few.

Here is a hands on review of this level of the game. He said it looked "Stunning." I think the whole rig a more all and rumor mill will churn and churn until launch day when people can finally play their chosen platform and make comparisons. For me this is a day one on the X1 download as well as Call of Duty. I wish I could buy more, but my wallet will be deflated with the PlayStation launch as well with KillZone.

MRMagoo123  +   835d ago
If you are actually getting both consoles as you say, I must ask why on earth would you get the lesser versions on the xbox one rather than the better ones on the ps4 ? it just doesnt make any sense at all completely serious.
jackanderson1985  +   835d ago
Friends also getting on the Xbox one ? It's how ill decide what console to get multiplats on (same this gen). To me I can't spot the difference between 720p and 1080p while actually playing a game through. I've seen the difference in those digital foundry articles comparing the games but even then I still think it's nothing. I realise some people are hell bent on this being a complete necessity but to me it's an added benefit that I wouldn't recognise is missing
MRMagoo123  +   835d ago
k fair enough, i easily see the diff on my tv with 720 to 1080 and its only 40inch....but then again i sit pretty close to the tv. Thanks for the none fanboy answer that was refreshing i agreed and gave you a bubble up for wellsaid.
FANTA1180  +   835d ago
how is it a downgraded version ?.. do you own the systems ?
Ashby_JC  +   835d ago
Here is the main problem Mr magoo....a rumor got started.

And people like you are already using that rumor as fact "why would you get the lesser versions on xboxone rather then the better ones on the PS4"


Its pretty clear why this rumor was put out there. Because they know this rumor will be used as FACT.

Im getting both consoles myself. XBOXone thats where ill be getting BF4. Now lets say the rumors are true and the PS4 is indeed 1080 versus 720 on the X1.

Me personally...wouldnt bother me because I wouldnt have them side by side to compare. Now if 720 makes the game look like shat and/or unplayable I would be pissed BUT I dont see that ever happening.

"The madness of resolution rumors aside, Battlefield 4 on the Xbox did look stunning"

The only thing that should matter when it comes to visuals, does it look good? If it does and you're happy then awesome but if it does looks good but you have this sinking feeling in the back of your head cause you know it's not 1080p... then you sir... are a pathetic waste of space and I'm glad to know that in 2-3 years you'll be bored of video games and off doing some other hobby cause you've clearly lost sight as to what games are truly about.
KingTrash  +   835d ago | Well said
All this resolution controversy is hilarious. The Xbox One's horsepower is so close to the PS4. The 50% more powerful BS is just that...complete BS. When it comes down to it, what are the differentiating factors here? We all know Xbox Live is way ahead of PSN. Anyone who disagrees is in complete and utter denial. Beyond that, for $100 more(which is nothing in a 7-8 year life cycle), you get an amazing 1080p camera with tech that will continue to amaze as we go forward. You also get what is still, hand down, the best controller ever created. i've used them both. The DS4 is much improved but there was a lot of improvement to be had. I'll eventually own a PS4 for the exclusives but for my main console and multiplatform games? The choice is clear. There's only One.

Whenever I see Sony fans spreading the 50% more power rubbish I LOL.

MasterCornholio  +   835d ago
I agree with Jim. Until the resolution is confirmed (by devs or comparison sites) we won't know if those rumors are true or not.

And if they are so what? The main reason people buy an Xbox One is for Kinect and Xbox One exclusives.

Whenever I see the ms fans in complete denial about the significant (we don't know the exact figure, but we do know it's around the 40% - 50% ballpark) power gap of the 2 next gen consoles I LOL.

Honestly, why is it such a big deal? Why do MS fanboys have to get so defensive about the technical gap? If you genuinely believe the xbone is the right next gen console for you, then great, but you're just going to have to accept the consequence that the purchase is going to result in getting lower performing multiplat games.

If you can't handle that fact, get a PS4 instead.

With plus I get dozens of great games, most of them worth at least 20$ EVERY month. What are we talking about? Live isn't even close to plus.

Hardly anyone will use that kinect integration. Also, kinect will not make people forget about the resolution issues. Maybe they will adapt and accept the resolution issue on the xbone.

resolution issue?? Oh you mean that RUMOR? Stop stating a RUNOR as fact.

If they confirm its below 1080...ill accept it. At this point it is a RUMOR!

As for the Kinect integration ...I saw a video talking about how it may be used. For the head tracking...I WILL use it IF it works as advertised.

You saying....Hardly anyone will use it is your opinion...I disagree...if it works...I feel that I will use it and many others if it helps the game improve.

I will say this, I'd rather play the X1 version than PS3 or 360 version.

Both Xbox One and PS4 final versions of BF4 are running at 1080p native @ 60fps now. There isn't any noticeable difference between the two consoles performance-wise, so pick the one you like more (or maybe based on which controller you like more). There is no better or worse BF4 version between the two.
If you want the classic BF3 maps reimagined in the BF4 world (the Second Assault expansion pack) though, you need Xbox One. Microsoft paid for those cool maps to be Xbox One exclusive from day 1 so PS4 is not getting them for a while

Yeah sadly. It'll be out on day one on Xbox One first (don't know about 360).
Ashby_JC  +   835d ago
I just looked it up and was surprised Operation MEtro was one of the maps for second assault.

I am curious what changes etc they do for the older maps.

Im going to rent BF4 for the 360 then buy it for XBOX one.

I never played BF on PC so my experience has been consoles. I look forward to playing BF closer to what its supposed to be 32v32.

On consoles 12v12 just felt incomplete. Lots of running around unpopulated maps. (the large maps at least).

to all the ps4 people talking smack to future xbox1 players;

its gonna look like crap on ps4 too!

sub-1080p, only medium settings, jaggies everywhere

the only version that will be 1080p, 1200p, 1440p, 1600p etc will be the pc version

the only version with ultra, or very high, or any high settings will be pc

both console versions are at the near lowest settings (medium) in sub-1080p

pc version will utterly and completely decimate the outdated last gen ps4 version, along with the xbox1 version
