I'll likely get it anyway since a few friends are really into it.  Also I can play it for a week while waiting for COD (and even COD might just be to tide me over to Titanfall)

Tried again several times today.  Lag is pretty severe.  Even when the server says it's a perfect connection you can fire an RPG, see no effect, count to 3 then the explosion happens.  Same thing getting in and out of vehicles.

yeah, that was my big issue during the beta.  you'd fire and think you missed, or think they missed and then boom.

been debating whether or not to pre-order this for the PC or not.  uPlay is giving away a free copy of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier or Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 if you go through them, which makes it tempting since I have been wanting to grab Future Soldier.  of the other usual suspects, Amazon is only offering a $5 credit and a 'battlepack', Origin and GMG aren't offering anything, and neither is Gamersgate.

that's a good deal, I kinda remember getting an email voucher along those lines along with another code for Ghosts.  Still tempted by uPlay though, Future Soldier is still going for around $20.

Voice commands, head tracking, leaning all available on Kinect:

Doubt this makes it into the 360 version. Apparently it also doesn't make it into PS4 according to the article.

Head tracking is the Kinect 's one saving grace in my opinion. I hope it's successful and forces Sony to get into it in a big way as well.

That those people being constantly muted is going to reflect on their reputation, and keep them from the regular rotation. looking forward to THAT.

I'm just going to mute anyone who isn't on my friends list if that option is still available.  with the expanded number of people allowed on the list I doubt I'll have to manage it like I did on the 360.

this should be interesting: I forgot they have their Great Game Guarantee in effect now, and BF4 purchased through Origin is eligible.  I wonder how many rage returns they'll get during the first 24 hours if it is a clusterfuck.

Oh fuck...



I actually wasn't expecting this to happen. I don't think it's a good thing at all for the console balance.

Edit: I realize this may look a little cryptic. This Jackfrags guy was invited to play and record the game on both PS4 and Xbox One, then share the results with the community tomorrow, the 29th. He had teased that people would be surprised at the graphical difference between the two versions, but most people assumed that meant the Xbox One version would look better than the PS4 version.

Edit 2: Giving it a little more thought, I realize that "looks better" is subjective. It might be a good idea to wait until he actually releases the footage to jump to conclusions, but damn...

WOW....I was right!

When I saying the only surprising thing could be the PS4 multiplayer looking BETTER than the XB1 single player, I really didn't think that could really be the case....but wow, it is!

My god....the XB1 just can not catch a break. They really should have just launched in 2014, like they were planning. From the broken OS and Live problems, to the worse graphics and higher price.....can this get any worse?

If you wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate that sort of speculation staying in the clearly marked boundaries of console vs. console threads?

That one looks better than the other is fine, but that particular rabbit hole is being dug up everywhere, and I'd rather not have the back-and-forth all over. GT is still home for people who couldn't care less about this thing - let's try and keep it that way? smile

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-battlefield-4-next-gen-vs-pc-face-off-preview

lower resolution, and a bit more aliasing, yet it still looks as good and in some cases even more crisp than the ps4.  Covering up which was which, my gf preferred the XO side.  I'm fine with my decision so far.  I just get sick and tired of hearing how wrong I am by people who aren't even getting one.  Go buy your ps4 and enjoy it, I'll have my XO and enjoy it.  (also have a PS4 preordered too)

So tired of you guys and your non-stop preaching.  It's like you are going to go to hell if you can't convert at least 1 more poor lost MS sinned soul.

I saw you playing, was about to post and bug you for impressions smile

I decided not to pre-order and see how the online portion fares for the next few days.  I plan on getting the Premium plan too (the third DLC pack 'Naval Strike' has my interest piqued), so either way I'll end up with the China Rising DLC.

Have the 360 edition. Installing at the moment. Will be upgrading to the XO version when the console launches.

Got a bad disc 1, or partly bad... did not want to read the disc until I opened and closed the tray several times.

Hopefully it finishes the installation without issue.

Higher resolution, higher framerate and less aliasing on the PS4 version... Well, that's bad, but not what I expected based on the tweets. It would have been worse if there were differences in other graphical settings, but from what I can tell (I just got up, so I haven't really caught up on everything yet) that's not the case.

Oh and Msduncan, you misread those tweets, though admittedly, so did many other people. Neither of the two you quoted was the guy who mentioned the difference, neither of them had played the game, and they weren't talking about that guy in the first place. The one who had played the game was the guy who tweeted the "DING DING DING" tweet, and he wasn't trolling. Anyway, that's water under the bridge now that it's officially confirmed.

Ignore the color balance. Digital Foundry points out that there were issues with it that they chose not to deal with, and they didn't know what caused this. It might be the consoles, or it might be something else. The PS4 capture had a more faded look, while the Xbox One had crushed blacks.

I recommend looking at the IGN multiplayer comparison btw. It does a better job than DF at displaying the differences between the two consoles, and there the Xbox One comes much worse off in comparison. It looks like singleplayer is pretty similar between the two consoles (with the exception of resolution, aliasing and framerate dips), but multiplayer is where the real differences start to emerge.

Honestly it's difficult for me to see the difference. Looking at screenshots, yes I can definitely see it. Fortunately I don't leave it up to my eyesight. I buy the one that says 1080p on the box (or in this case 900p).
I see in that Eurogamer review that there was no test of the 64 player multiplayer for Xbox. I would be very interested to see how that goes on the Xbox One. The PS4 had 60fps but dropped into the 40s at times.

had a feeling SP wouldn't be all that great, but was hoping it would at least be a fun little diversion.  I'll probably end up breaking by the weekend, and may grab the XB1 version just because Hark is smile
