DICE Sets the Mark for Quality on Next-Gen Consoles

We’re only five days away from all-out warfare on PlayStation 4. Battlefield 4, which launched on current generation consoles and PCs last week, will hit shelves on Tuesday for PS4 and is coming to Xbox One just a week later on November 19. Grab your 63 closest friends because Battlefield 4 is the only place where you can have 64 people on the battlefield at 60 frames per second.

“I could give you 64 reasons why Battlefield 4 is the can’t-miss game of this year, but here’s the one you need: critics are saying Battlefield 4 is the first great first-person shooter of the next-generation,” said Peter Moore, Chief Operating Officer of Electronic Arts. “With the superior technology of Frostbite 3, vast environments for online team play, and the only game with 64-player multiplayer all-out warfare, Battlefield 4 is ready to bring the next-generation to life.”

Still wondering if you should grab a copy? Check out our first in a blog series of  “64 Reasons to Play Battlefield 4 on Next-Gen” – the definitive guide to why Battlefield 4 is the biggest, most immersive, most technologically-advanced action title for the new consoles.

“Every day in our stores, we’re seeing the excitement build for the upcoming launch of the next-generation of video gaming,” said Bob Puzon, Senior Vice President of Merchandising at GameStop. “EA has the most cumulative launch-title pre-orders of any publisher, driven by a great lineup that truly reveals the power of the new gaming consoles.”

We’ll be sharing more here on The Beat as we get ready for next-gen. Tell us: what are you most excited for in the new consoles?

    why isnt bf4 clan friendly for consoles, i.e. you cant make a squad in the menu and then go into a game, you cant team speak, you cant buy any sever's, i mean this is suppose to be next generation gaming. im very dissappointed that they took these away as i am sure most clans are. in fact they were so mad thhat the majority of clans have stayed in bf3! this is a problem EA that needs to be addressed. fix it or regret it bottom line....

    This game is bad. From freezing up twice to 10 minutes walking around a ship to find Irish to a never ending boat mission, and I've only played about an hour. Walking around a ship, Hey EA/ Dice maybe you could offer a walking around a park game. Would be about as exciting. Don't even get me started on the terrible 'Return to the Valkyrie' boat mission. Buggy and Frustrated. This game is going back to the store the morning after purchase. I feel ripped off. Never again!

      The Valkyrie mission I literally shot an RPG through a helicopter because it was a translucent. Not to mention the teleporting NPC's...

    My first user profile seems to be crashing as soon as i enter the game. Now my second account is crashing...I'm so disappointed with Dice it's not funny, I work, have kids, a life when I do get a chance this is my hobby paid close to $100 and can't put together my clan (whom have been running together for years now) who have reported the same issues. On top of that no customer services!

    A million dollar product and I can't play the game. I can't even get customer service on their site or e-mail. I did apply for a job I can sit on my but and don't care about my clients needs.

    Is it the fact that dice is concentrating on ps4 that they don't care about ps3 clients!

    So, evidently, the standard is games that don't work, shoddy craftsmanship, little to no concern for the customer and a screw you approach to the development life cycle.

    Battlefield 4 is a real disappointment. You shoot an enemy in the head with a sniper rifle and he doesn't die. Shoot him multiple times with an assault rifle and he still doesn't die. But one shot from him from 300 yards away while your running and your dead as a door nail. What ********. How can you put a product on the market that you know is fill with errors? And from what I have reading on the blogs about this problem it is widespread. As far as I am concerned I just threw $60.00 away. Fix

    Online is getting better everyday, patience is a virtue. I played majority of the day and had a good time....Booted 20 times (actual) but towards the end of the night the 32 player servers were working a little. Give it a patch or two and it will be unprecedented. Will probably never play Domination, TDM, SQDM, after it's fixed. Defuse needs to be more people. 5V5 is not enough incentive for people, you will only draw more people with more options... just a thought. Overall great game. Thank you

    "DICE Sets the Mark for Quality on Next-Gen Consoles" If this sets a standard.. wow. Did Obamacare group orchestrate the quality control on this? Or did Michelle Obama have a inside friend at EA as well? For online issues is one thing... however simple Campaign mode glitching and corrupting data. Nice standard for the opening of the Next Gen of gaming. EA, you have failed this launch, no matter how you spin it. I will give it an A+ for graphics, C- for story, and a BIG F+ you for the rest

    So far a great disappointment....game constantly locks up during play along with many others who hae same issue. EA and Origin should be ashamed of themselves in putting out a marginal product. Too many problems AGAIN... My last BF... the clan is moving on to a quality product next time.. Should have just burned the 50 bucks instead of buying this crap
