Figure they will keep mention of BF4 for NextBox under wraps until Microsoft reveals the console officially.

Wait so is this coming out for 360 or Next Xbox? If is coming out for new consoles might have to hold off!

Still haven't gotten around to watching the trailer yet!

Yea, that's the confusing part. There was a huge banner about BF4 displayed in Gamestop. It's actually on gamstop.com now. Pre-order BF4 and get premium expansion pack. Game available Fall 2013. If MS have not released any info for next gen, it looks like it's for 360. Which kinda sucks.

Oh yeah. all the advertising is for the 360...just current consoles.

Here is the Amazon page...http://www.amazon.com/Battlefield-4-Xbox-360/dp/B00BXE4KWG/ref=sr_tr_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1364910907&sr=8-1&keywords=bf4...notice it says pre-order by 4/13/13 to get a premium expansion pack, but then it goes on to say this offer will be extended to all pre-orders.

Question, I guess there is no harm in preordering? Just click the order button and I am not charged until it ships and I can cancel at anytime? No reason not to preorder or am I missing something?

I was just under the assumption that the 720 was coming out at the end of October along with the release of BF4. Guess I trusted one of those battlefield community hunches.

I still think it can happen, but for whatever reason DICE / EA feel they need to start advertising their game now. Maybe they just want to ramp up the buzz of bf4 so that when ms comes out with info on the 720 they will have everyone going just absolutely nuts about how awesome bf4 is going to be.

One other thing I am confused about is I guess they haven't told us a release date? Is that correct? Is that normal, as far as the time frame we are at now?

I also wonder when the bf4 beta will come out. I wouldn't be suprised if they are fighting over what to do there. Maybe they are wondering if they need to try the beta out on the 720 before the game releases on consoles. IDK I am not the guy to guess on video game stuff, I just haven't followed it closely but for a few years.

I posted this in the BF3 thread but it probably belongs here too...Here Dice talks about how to get BF4 beta access...


http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/news/view/2925730253849551391/

"Join the exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta
We are also happy to announce the upcoming exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta. There are a number of ways to get into this Beta: By pre-ordering the Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition on Origin.com, by being a Battlefield 3: Premium member, and by being a registered owner of Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition. We will have more information on the exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta at a later date."

I would not be surprised if they start offering bf4 beta to xbox 360 pre-orders of bf4.

If there are new consoles in the fall it will be on them. It may not coincide with their launch but it will be on them. Not even a question. They aren't going to push tv spots 6 months ahead when we don't even have a release or any info on the nextbox and the only thing we've seen on the playstation was their presentation a month ago.

I don't know, they could always say it's coming to the PS4 and any "next gen consoles". The fact that they haven't even mentioned PS4 for it makes me pretty sure it won't be coming to next gen consoles. But maybe I will be surprised.

i don't see how it wouldn't be on next gen consoles? CoD will be and a bunch of other high end games will be, I would be very surprised if they waited all this time to release BF4 and knew it would be at the basically the same time new consoles would be coming out and not have it on the new consoles..

MPH, ea is in it to make money. There is literally a 0% chance it isn't released on the new consoles. The chance of it not being on the 360 and ps3 is higher than the opposite. If they made any official mention of it being on the nextgens right now they would be the first game/company/anything to say so, no? Wait not for PS4, doesn't sleeping dogs and I am alive say it? Whenever a full feature TV spot drops for BF4, playstation will probably put out a PS branded commercial as they do with most big titles. Tone isn't at you tongue.gif

Look at the install base for the current gen consoles. Do you really think they would jump on the next gen and forget about this one? I could see them eventually bringing it to the next gen consoles, but they would be really dumb to forget this gen.

No you are right. I should have rephrased, I was just making a point. There isn't a chance they don't release it on 360/ps3 also. The market is wayyyy too large. They release this fall, this early in the cycle of the series for the next gen consoles.

Worst case scenario is they release it as a what they will call "optimized" version from 360->720. Or they drop a gimped version for the 360.

You never know, maybe they are waiting for the Next box to announce so they can include them all right away, but I just think they would have at least flashed a PS4 logo on the avaliable platforms. I want some amazing games at launch for the nextbox so I can justify buying it, so maybe this will be one of them. Those graphics in the trailer had to come from a PC, because there is no way they are getting that out of the 360/ps3.

I'll buy the nextbox just for bf4. Crazy as that sounds. But only if PC doesn't lure me away first, and forevermore, I guess.

MPH - yes you can order from Amazon can cancel whenever you want. They dont charge till it ships. When I preordered they sent me a code to enter into a bf4 website. When I did the site told me something like the unlock or code will be activated when you first play bf4. So most likely its the expansion pack code. I could cancel right now and I would still have the expansion pack as its now attached to my origin account. Amazon does this quite often actually, I am assuming they pay nothing for these codes. So if a better deal pops up I will be switching somewhere else.

If it is on nextbox, I hope it supports more than 24 players. Is that possible or is it the network limitations?

I would really love to get into this but I had such a bad experience with the learning curve of the vehicles on BF3. I really hope they do some things to make it more inviting to new adopters such as a training game mode or something that would allow newcomers a chance to learn a few fundamentals without getting shot or blown up every few seconds. With the decline in COD MP balance I could be ready for something like this.

You can always join into an empty server and mess around alone. You can use the AVS server and lock it if you like, that way no one jumps in.

I don't play a lot of MP anymore, but I did enjoy BF3 when it first game out. Then my schedule got crazy and I ended up losing a couple of my games in a move, BF being one of them. I've thought about going and getting the premium edition in the summer when things slow down, but don't know if I should waste the money with BF4 right around the corner.

Edit: I just looked at Gamestop has a deal where if you preorder BF4, you can get $25 off BF3 Premium Edition. It looks like I might have to do this. The only bad part if I don't live near a Gamestop and when I have preordered games from them online it takes close to a week and a half for it to finally show up at my house.

the deal with BF multiplayer (IMO) is i would rate it about 7 playing by yourself, but a 9 playing with the AVS crew of 4-8 players.. game is completely different playing with a people who communicate and play correctly..

I had no idea that could be done. Is it fairly easy or do I need to know a name and/or type in a path?

How much is the premium edition and what does it have? I'm looking for something (FPS) to get into between now and Nov and am about done with blops.

Easiest way is do pull up the server browser and find a jet map that has no one in it. If someone does hop in and they start trolling then leave and join another. There seems to be a decent amount of empty servers at times. If you're looking for a particular server I use the search function, I think you can find it searching "avs".

Premium basically gives you every map pack and game mode that came out for the game. It also gave you access to those packs early but that doesn't matter anymore. You get additional dogtags by doing certain things in game like kill x people with y gun or destroy x vehicles with the jet.

Ultimately it just takes time in vehicles to get good but it helps a bunch if you find a good wing man to fly with and to help you along. Zath has some good posts on you tube and in his sig link.
Edit: jet maps conquest- firestorm, Caspian border, karg island. I would start out in conquest. 2 jets per team and quicker respawn = more opportunities to fly. Firestorm also has attack and transport choppers
