Battlefield 4 PS4 release ‘confirmed’ by EA official

Despite having failed to make the announcement at the game’s recent unveiling, latest reports have suggested EA has confirmed a Battlefield 4 PS4 release is on the cards.

Whilst both publisher EA and developer DICE have to date remained positively tight-lipped on the topic of next-gen compatibility, new reports have quoted EA spokespeople as suggesting that a Battlefield 4 PS4 release is indeed on the cards.

According to Polygon, an unnamed “EA official” speaking at the Games Developer Conferece in the US, the location for the Battlefield 4 unveiling, has reportedly confirmed that the Call of Duty rivalling title will hit Sony’s upcoming console, a device which will sport a new touchpanel hosting controller.

“While the PS4 edition is not currently listed on the official pre-order site for the game, an Electronic Arts official confirmed that the game is coming to the platform,” the latest reports suggested. “The game is coming to the Windows PC, PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360, according to Electronic Arts officials.”

The claimed sources reportedly added that, at present, there is “No price for the PS4 version of Battlefield 4.”

Although a Battlefield 4 PS4 release has yet to be openly announced, the game’s autumn 2013 launch billing would fit in nicely with the recently confirmed ‘holiday 2012’ PS4 release date window.

Having missed the PS4 unveiling where a number of its rivals showcased a selection of next-gen titles, EA has previously hinted that a Battlefield 4 PS4 release could well be on the cards, suggesting they are “excited” by the new console.

“It is amazing what the imagination of the game developers are allowed to do with that much power,” EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said when questioned on the PS4 recently.

“At the end of the day we are very excited about Sony’s platform. We feel there’s a huge opportunity there. The technical power on the platform is going to allow us to do a substantial amount of things that have never been done before.”

it will come to the next xbox from what i hear next xbox might be cross platform with pc and be upgradable like a pc

Where did you hear that it will be upgradeable? I find that highly unlikely and the hardware spec leaks don't suggest that either.

Microsoft is looking to lock down the living room, butmy theory is this: Windows 8 and soon to be windows blue has integrated "xbox" into its operating system. they didnt plan to just thin the gap between console and the present day xbox 360, they did this as a prelude for the next gen. Also a solid indicator that its going in this direction is nvidas new hand held console known as "project shield" interesting name choice,: Shield... its last attempt to keep console and pc segregated.

Um, pre-order pricing was available last night on EA's Origin Store:

£44,99 for PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and a special edition for PC users allowing beta access etc for £54.99. I guess the next gen console crowd will have to wait.

I won't be buying the game from Origin at those prices that's for sure.

I don't want to be mean, but nothing you've said makes any sense.

You don't upgrade consoles. You can't. Consoles are a set hardware profile so publishers know what they are designing their games for. That's the whole point of making a console.

Xbox Live has nothing to do with hardware in any way. Its how Microsoft manage online for all their games. Its also on Windows Phone.

And the Shield thing is utterly irrelevant.

Its just my personal observation, i mean, nothing has been officially announced so I guess we'll have to wait to find out.

It makes total sense if you have (un)common sense. Let me explain it for you: The vast majority of gamers don't have access to a PC that is even near as powerful as the PS4 is going to be (Issue: money to get a great PC vs money to get a PS4, to get a PC as strong as a PS4 you'll be paying a bit over the price of the PS4. Also the PS4 is going to be mainstream, creating things that only certain people with the most badass computers can do is stupid because you're reaching the smallest market available - companies reach to the broader markets which is why the specs on the PS4 are so exciting to them.

By the way - "No new things are going to be DONE!!" talking about the PS4? What about The Last Of Us for the PS3? that game just came out and its entire gameplay style is brand new story is new and everything in it is amazing. Please don't talk shit about things you know nothing about especially when you have no sensible argument to support it.
