No, that's what they WERE for. You will join MS's vision of the future, which is the XBone since they can't develop a tablet or smartphone worth a sh*t!

Yeah I stole it off of some guy in the main thread. I'm going with it.


And BTW, I have been looking forward to playing BF4 on the the xbox for a long time now. It was a no-brainer to preorder some type of BF4 console package of some sort.

Now, I can't believe I am actually considering my options.

There seem to be a few things that I just can't seem to get my head wrapped around. Just not sure what route I want to take.

If I could just buy a new xbox that could only play games online without all the other stuff, then I think the decision would be cut and dry. I mean a model that was purely dedicated to gaming. But now I don't know. It might come down to pricing honestly.

If I have to pay $700 after tax and whatever else to get into BF4 on the X Bone, I might be a no deal. Not to mention other complaints I have a day after the reveal.

$700 wouldn't be too bad. Hell a decent video card alone is half that and a tablet with accessories is a little more. I for one will have an XB1 (Xbone®) Only thing in question is the PS4. Currently there is nothing compelling about it for me. 99% of the people I know have Xbox so as of now, no PS4 in my future. Not sure I care about exclusives this time around either.

Do I care about Kinect, no but will use if included. Bluray? In the sense that I already have a PS3 no, but if that drive dies I will. Already have multiple consoles that can do DLNA so that's a non issue. Ditched cable, so passthrough may not matter unless I want to DVR older games I'm no longer playing. The 360 does a lot of stuff now I don't use, mine plays games and that is it.

So as long as the xboner can make BF4 look a lot closer to PC for half the cost of a PC I am in. I may not get the thing at launch, maybe let it bake for a few months so I'm not stuck with a RROD machine but I will have one.

Well It sounds like $700 may be the minimum. I am going to have to fully grasp it all. If I have to replace my headset, avr...whatever else, then I am going to have to weigh my options.

Guess it hasn't been mentioned, but news update from battlelog a couple days ago:

"Battlefield 4 will be available this holiday for early-adopters of the next-generation hardware systems: Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PlayStation®4 ! Driving the next-gen experience is Frostbite 3, the only game engine that brings you a true next-generation experience.

We can also confirm that Battlefield 4 will be available October 29 for the Xbox 360® game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and PC.

DICE also revealed that players who pre-order Battlefield 4 will receive the Battlefield 4 China Rising premium digital expansion pack at no additional cost. Players will fight for dominance across the vast and majestic Chinese mainland in four massive maps, using all-new vehicles and high-tech military equipment.

Furthermore, players that pre-order Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe, available exclusively on Origin, will also secure their access to the exclusive Battlefield 4 multiplayer beta.

DICE will be revealing even more information about Battlefield 4 at E3 2013 with a live multiplayer demo at 1 PM PDT on Monday, June 10.

As always, stay tuned for more information!
"

So I guess on June 10th we will get more info.

Now we just need to find out when the next gen consoles are releasing. Hopefully on or before Oct 29. Still have my preorder for PC, but I may change that depending on release date of next gen or if a good bit of you guys get it on 360.

Only reason Im staying xbox is because of you guys. I'll get BF4 for XO no matter what. Trade in my xbox slim and Fat PS3(blu-ray) and get the XO. If Live becomes too expensive, then it's PS4. That's if sony doesn't start charging for internet.

I wonder what it'll be running on? Probably a killer PC. I really wanna know what they're targeting in terms of resolution and frame rate for next gen, although they probably still don't have final hardware yet...so who knows.

Maybe this sounds crazy....but that dinosaur mode they mentioned in that survey has me more excited than anything else. Let me lock a javelin onto a T-Rex and I'm instantly sold.

If CoD can have nazi zombies, I don't see why BF can't have dinosaurs.

Hell a Jurassic Park style FPS would be freaking amazing. Or make it a-la Armored Core. Gimme some of that T-Rex with sharptooth, fast runner, and paralyzing roar perks!

Yup....except zombies are so played out right now. But everyone loves dinosaurs. Everyone. I've never met a single person that would say "meh....I don't care for dinosaurs."

I want them to bring back a little bit of the playfulness from bad company. Not every game needs to be a super serious "the world hangs in the balance" scenario. If they're insisting on making single player campaigns, hopefully they can at least make the characters likable again.

yeah I agree completely. There was something special about Bad Company and Bad Company 2. Nothing beats driving a tank down a golf course or watching Haggard run straight into an enemy base yelling profanities.

Man, that intro is better than the entirety of the BF3 campaign.

Bad company 2143 would be amazing. It doesn't need to make sense. Bring the same 4 guys back, and dont even try to explain it. Part of the game takes place on Mars. Mechs. Hovertanks. Lasers. All they're trying to do is steal Martian gold, the plan goes awry, hijinks ensue and they're caught in the middle. And dinosaurs are somehow involved.

Lol. Sure, they'll take your Xbox 360 in trade...and give you $10 for it if it works perfectly, has all the accessories, original box, and you trade in 50 games on top of it. First time I've EVER heard of someone not knowing about GS trade.

Don't get me wrong, Zath. I currently have $900 in Gamestop credit, which is the lowest my balance has been in about two years. That's after I converted just another $400 into Amazon credit, so I do "trade" there often. (By trade, I mean wait for them to offer double credit and turn in a bunch of junk consoles for $140 credit each that cost me $20 apiece. smile.gif) That said, I don't give them any games unless I pick up some ridiculous package deal, which does happen sometimes, but I wait until they give $30 extra for trades on those as well. For the average Joe that goes into a GS on an average day, it's a rip off, just like Amazon or any other place. For some like myself, GS does have its advantages to be sure.

My real point was that jasonstiller's post implied that GS was going to simply swap out an old 360 for a One, which isn't going to happen without a huge amount of additional money.

Yeah you are definitely unique :P

I think his post actually meant the BF4 game itself being swapped between 360 and x-bone. Though I agree it probably isn't a simple trade and will require more money. But who knows. Jason - if I were you, I'd get what that employee told you in writing.

The GS dude told me I could change my preorder of bf4 on PC to another system if I wanted. I just throw down five bucks and I can move that five around to any preorder game. Not sure if bf4 will be more complicated since I got dog tags with my preorder. Didn't open them yet anyway, I'm afraid if I put them on mph will appear out of nowhere and front stab me
