The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will allow console players to get the same Battlefield 4 experience as PC users, according to DICE executive producer Patrick Bach.

worked for me but you didn't miss much. they are just trying to ease the worries that the new consoles will get the same experience. 60 frames per second and up to 64 players which is nice. the graphics will likely be sharper and have better effects on high end pc's which isn't surprising.

the problem i see is early impressions so far suggest the ps4 (and likely the xbone but i haven't seen any footage yet which could be a bad sign) isn't looking all that great when compared to the pc being demoed. people have to remember, this is a $400 box trying to compete with a pc that is likely over a grand. this is also why people get sick of the console fanboyism nonsense about how the ps3 was so much more powerful than the x360 or how the ps4 will be compared to the xbone. it really is ridiculous when you add the pc to the mix.

I think what they mean is the game will be the same feature wise.. Not lower player counts etc..

I can't imagine them saying its on par with PCs with a straight face.. Lol.. Not in term of graphics..

BF3 without HD upgrade and without HD cables to my Xbox 360 still looks good and plays fine and is fun.

BF4 is only going to improve everything so I don't care if it doesn't look 300% better. I'll take 50% better.

Make up your minds guys :P

DICE is not saying it will be exactly like a high end pc but a similar experience.

There's nothing to think about really.

Common sense innit.

Okay...thanks for that?

it will look, play and function like the pc version. good for all gamers.

"With 64 players, 60 frames-per-second, proper frame rate, you get that full Battlefield experience even though you're sitting in your living room in front of your TV with a controller in your hand."

I played and enjoyed bad company 2 more than bf3 (ps3) but hopefully with bf4 on the ps4 it will be different!!!!

Bf3 was very disappointing after the Bad Company games. I would just like Dice to say something about the graphics being reported as waffalon by IGN. Like that they acknowledge and are working on it

they probably got b!tched by sony and MS for talking crap about next gen systems. I hope for the best but wouldn't trust them. Don't really like Frostbite 3. Bad company was so much better (and looking better on consoles) and had way more destruction going on... and that is on "old engine".

aksmashh1876d ago

I thought that about destruction on bad company was better (on consoles)!

Maybe a pc gamer can tell us if theres more destruction on their version of bf3??

BallsEye1876d ago

I've played a PC version quite a lot as well. Destruction is exactly the same like on consoles.

I played BF3 for quite some time on PS3 but never really liked it. The input lag + the 30 fps really ruined it for me. But if they are coming to the party with only 720p for next gen I will still be disappointed even though we will get 60 fps.
