Battlefield 4 confirmed for PS4

Forums - Sony Discussion - Battlefield 4 confirmed for PS4

Microsoft timed exclusive? Impossible! EA and Sony are bros for life also BF3 sold almost the same on PS3 as on the 360

Good. Good for PS4.



I hope they up the player count in multiplayer for ps4. When I played BF3 on ps3, the maps felt so barren most of the time. They should make it identical to PC, except mods of course. Having our own servers would be really nice too.

It's not surprising at all.

I predict a timed Microsoft exclusive

Battlefield 3 had timed-exclusive DLC for the PS3. So if anything, it would be a timed Sony exclusive.

But EA, think of how risky it is!

Not risky at all seeing as BF3 sold 5million+ on PS3. There's already a fanbase and the game is guanteed to sell.

What' surprising about that? They've done a full 180 on Nintendo support and have blacklisted Nintendo all together.

I agree. If they are doing low end PC and 360 and PS3 than the Wii U should get it too. Just because it can't handle the high end version doesn't mean people won't buy the gimped version. COD on Wii must have sold well enough because they put 4 or 5 of them on it even though they were the worest looking versions. I'm a firm believer that 3rd party games should be on all platforms that can run the game and if the 360 and PS3 are getting it, there's no reason why the Wii U can't.

Doubt it's only a performance related issue. I'm guessing recent software numbers haven't been that encouraging to third parties. Ninty really should have pushed for this title to be on the wiiu

Multiplatform tools and engines mean porting a game is cheap fast and easy. It would take very little effort, time and money to put the game on Wii U if they have already scaled it down for PS360. EA could own the Wii U's FPS genre. They would make money I have no doubt. Would they make as much money on Wii U as PS360? No, of course not. But there is profit to be had and expanding a brand into new markets worth it. I have a fundimental belief that all 3rd party games should be on as many platforms as possible. The more games for more gamers the better.

Like Squaresoft and Nintendo?

Contracts end, new deals are made. Business is business. Nobody are friends when money is on the line. Partners yes, but partnerships end when better offers are made.

I personally have no idea how much the cost will be. WiiU is said to have some bottlenecks and to program for it and actually make the game run well they will need some good effort on their part. COD BO2 came out on the wiiu with lots of features and with no noticeable performance issues. Look at how that is selling. It's all about time spent on porting and not just the cost. Doesn't look like they think it's worth it and given recent software sales on the wiiu I don't blame them. Ideally yes it should be coming out on it but EA is a business. 

and this is why I blame Nintendo. BF is a very solid franchise and the MP is great. They should have pushed to have the game on the system, especially since hw/sw sales are not performing that well
