Yup. There's going to be tons of controller options available. smile.gif

I'm certain that we will see some serious nagging continue, but it should quickly dissipate after a week or so. Honestly, any new controller layout can be quickly learned, given a little time and a touch of patience. Hell, I only played the BF4 beta for maybe an hour and a half, but by 10 minutes in, I don't recall ever hitting the "Back" button to spot or any other button accidentally. The swap from the R2 to R1 when going from Xbox to PS3 only took about a match or two to relearn without fail. Now, going back and forth only takes about 5-10 seconds of thought. I think a lot of you aren't giving yourself enough credit.

YOOKIN DOO EEET!

^^^ Right, each controller was setup that one set of buttons was awkward to use 2-finger control. As an ex-PC player, having buttons I couldn't rest my fingers on annoyed me. From the pictures it looks like L2/R2 being curved will make it perfect for 2-finger control.

I will say two fingers on the DS felt more natural for some reason.

OK correct me if im wrong. I'm buying bf4 on ps3 from GameStop (physical disc). As I understand it I will be able to buy bf4 on ps4 digitally from psn for $10. I will just need to have the bf4 ps3 disc in my ps4.

Still not sure if this will be my shooter of choice or not, the beta is fun, but oh so glitchy. Server issues are my main problem, dropped matches, random lag...

Also encountered someone who had figured out a sliding glitch. Crouch, glitch through a sandbag and slide at super human speeds across the map while being invulnerable (I put over a mag into him, nothing but hit markers)

I think the lack of CoD kill streaks is why I am loving the game so much even with the instability. Hopefully they switch the reload system, discarding half a mag may be realistic but it isn't fun in a game where ammo goes so fast...

Well I guess that is good for FPS vets on the PS3, but since 99.9% of my FPS gameplay happened on the 360 I for one will be using the triggers as ADS/fire.

One time in Close Quarters (on 360) on official DICE server I had that happen. 10 min into an otherwise normal match I got enraged when I kept shooting people and nothing happened. A guy ran full sprint at me with a knife and I unloaded a full mag. He knified me. Turned out server glitch made all weapons do zero damage. Man it was hilarious cause only about 6 people in the match figured it out before the end.
Do you know how amazing it feels to run around a map nearly invunerable knifing at will? Had 3 guys on me trying to shoot me dead and after knifing 2 of them the 3rd guy actually ran away. Then it turned into a big knife fight all trying to get the animation which then turned into a knife-animation-train.
good times.
Glitches happen.

Cool beans! It's not that I was a particular fan of either console trigger/bumper but it's obvious if the DICE guys likes the DS4 triggers than it's going to be fun. I tend to jerk/bump the trigger a bit more using RB as fire than I did RT on 360mote.
Can't wait to crack off some 500 meter headshots with a real trigger.


Why didn't we add Battlelog names to the PSN list? Not everyone's is the same.

I have YET to have that work on BF3 or BF4 beta on PS3.
But the VOIP off always worked and is a 5 second change.

Mute is pretty hit or miss. Lo and I run into that often in both BF3 and the beta. Don't blame Dice, its the awful VOIP on the PS3 far as I can tell.I've also noticed it on BLOPS 2 for the short time I had it. I tend to mute those I don't know but still get bits and pieces of conversations.

This is the only time mute has ever failed me in a game on any console, that is why I mentioned it.

Odd. I get strange bleed quite a bit. The only surefire solution initially was killing VOIP completely but then I couldn't talk to Lo.

I can't wait to see PS4 VOIP and how its actually implemented. So far I don't think there has been much mention.

So my manager finds this card while sweeping the parking lot and she comes up to me and says you think its still good. It was cut in half so I couldnt tell how much it was for but I decided I'll play guess that character.





I figured the letter after the P was an F but it could of been an E, decided to start with F and after 29 attempts.....BAM $50 added to my wallet. Christmas is going to be from Oct-Dec for me this year.

Well I just played it for 25 minutes and for 25 minutes couldn't find it...because in the last minute of the match realized it was glitched and under the skyscraper rubble.

The gunplay is pretty darn heated at the bomb site with snipers on the opposing roofs so it really took me a long while getting to it to realize why it never moved. The Venom is there! That was fun.

The BF3 layout feels natural to me as you have your index fingers on R1/L1 (FIRE/ADS) and middle fingers on R2/L2

How are you guys on BF4 (or xbox players of BF3) placing your fingers?

As above just using your middle fingers to ADS and Fire, index fingers still on R1/L1

or do you have your index fingers on ADS and Fire and then move them to R1/L1 as required?

On xb I use index fingers on the triggers when walking. But in vehicles I use index on the bumpers and middle fingers on the triggers. The bumpers were shoot and countermeasures, triggers were fwd and reverse.

I have to relook my ps3 controls for the beta. Because now in vehicles my index fingers are on L1 R1 (fwd n rev) and my middle has to be my trigger finger on L2 to shoot. Definitely is taking some time to get used to, I take a few more rpgs because of it now.

On PS my index rests on the bumpers. On 360 it rested on the triggers. Hitting the opposite buttons on both was a movement that felt out of the ordinary on both consoles.

I'm going to try and avoid vehicles on the ps3. Once the ps4 version comes out the throttle will be the triggers and the shoot and spot will be the bumpers. At least for veteran. It was awkward to fire with the LT and throttle with the numbers.
