Sounds like they're doing a shit job with the PC port, which is par for the course for EA lately.

^QTF, Shitty pc port =/= ps4 as powerful as PC. I will not support EA if BF4 isn't as impressive as what's been promised.



Intel core i7 930 OC @ 4.0 ghz

XFX Double dissipation Radeon HD 7950 356 bit 3gb GDDR5 OC @ 1150 MHz core + 1575 x 4 memory

Triple channel DDR 3 12gb RAM 1600 MHz

Any PC running a 7850HD + level graphics card simply cannot look worse than the PS4 unless the PC port is seriously unoptimized. The specs of the said PC would be nice



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

I don't think EA, or anyone, suggested that the PS4 was as powerful as the most powerful PC. In fact, seems a lot of people misunderstood the info. The PS4 version is the one that will look the best (however they designed it). That's a developer choice, not a platform weakness.



                                                                                                                                            

The game doesn't look all that impressive to begin' with. More like refined ps3 graphics.

And given EA sports treatment of PC versions of their games, I expect nothing else but "lazy" work on the pc counterparts of anything outside DICE. I expect more games from EA to follow suit, were the PS4 version is better because the PC version was done just to recover some costs.

I haven't seen any footage of this game on PC but you're exactly right judging from their shitty, lazy PC work on recent sports titles.

That makes three of us. When the PC version of the game is capped to console framerates, that is 100% unacceptable.



                                                                                                                                            

PS4 fanboys will be worst than PC elitist I swear to you now.

Wait, but I thought the site agreed that PC Elitists: "are the worst." Which is it?

Go build a pc that is the equivalent of the 360 and try running far cry 3 on it. it's not going to happen. period. The fact of the matter is you can get so much more out of a console than you can a pc using less. It's baffling that people havent realized that yet. There will be plenty of games on the new consoles that look better than any game on pc for the next few years and then obviously the pc versions will pull away as hardware gets better. It's no different than gears of war 1 on 360, at the time there was not a game on any console or pc that looked as good. Not even Unreal Tournament 3 that obviously used the same engine. Im not sure how many of yall are pc gamers, but you can run 99.9% of pc games maxxed out right now with a computer that is weaker than the next gen consoles. Hell you can run crysis 3 maxxed out at 1080p with gtx 660 ti and intel i7 3770k and 8 gigs of ram with out a problem. If that can run it fine so can either of these dedicated next gen consoles.



I have to disagree with this, I've seen several direct capture screenshots of shadow fall and several game play videos in full HD and reasonably good quality. The game looks great no doubt. I recently played Crysis 3 on my PC, at the high preset (not ultra). I must say I consider its graphics to be better than Killzone, with larger scale to boot. Looking at any next gen game, any recent PC title that uses Direct X11 effectively looks just as good if not better. Including more ambitious 3D games from indies (The Forest, Roberts Space Industyries etc). Even tech demos like Unigine Valley, beats any large scale environment I've seen on these next gen systems by far, yet runs great on decent hardware. No Titans, SLI or CrossFire required. So no, these systems aren't going to blow any decent gaming PCs out of the water. Over time upgrades will be warranted true, but it comes with the territory. And is not as expensive as people like to make it sound.

Isn't this always the case for EA games (published and/or developed) that aren't called Battlefield? There's no real incentive for them to optimize a PC port (smaller audience than consoles. Even smaller audience that can max out their games on PC).
