http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/08/06/battlefield-4s-second-screen-experience-only-available-on-pc-xbox-one-and-ps4

Battlefield's second-screen experience, which allows quick access to maps, loadouts, stats, and server browsing, will only be available on next-gen and PC versions of the game.

Speaking to Engadget, Battlelog assistant producer Jesper Nielsen broke the news and explained why Battlescreen, as it's known, won't be available on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Well played Spyder, well played.

Yea I traded all my stuff off, I'm not a bad person. But I will not be a traitor to my core beliefs. biggrin.gif

Spyder fired his load to early and fell out. The rest of us have a slower burn leading to a nice pinnacle. biggrin.gif

I never once said that I would ever get rid of my 360. Ever. I've made it more than abundantly clear that I'm keeping all of my 360s and PS3s, over and over and over again, regardless of what direction I or anyone else chooses. I made nobody either a trader (sell your console to GS) or a traitor (switch alliances) and still fully believe that the PS4 is by far the better machine of the two, with even bigger gains to come as the next-gen consoles move forward. I'm not "sticking with MS" anymore than I'm "sticking with Sony," since I play on both currently. What I may or may not do is sell my launch consoles (both Xbone and PS4) for profit, thus making my replacements absolutely free.

If BF4 is truly delayed, it makes my choices that much easier.

Nothing has been delayed, all that is happening is placeholder dates keep switching. Until Sony announces the PS4 launch date all of the dates listed are simply there to allow preorders to happen.

For context, we've had a friendly "argument" amongst us regular and formerly regular BF3 Xbox players about next gen consoles. A good amount of ribbing has been handed out. And its now spilling over because some of us opted for the bestest graphics and others opted to be sheep, ahem. smile.gif :beer: first round is on me

I did mean traitor. Lack of sleep and typing without thinking and thats what you get.

Spyder I know you were planning on keeping your current gen to play some of the newer games but why not enjoy them on the next gen? I can understand if the game comes out first on the current gen but not sure what else would make you stay.

Aside from amazon, where else does it say that bf4 will be delayed? Amazon originally had the release date for the 29th but I think they just changed it till the end of the year as a placeholder.

Very true but I can turn my PS3 on today and see that BF3 looks better than it did on my 360. It is noticeably better. The masses may not notice or care but my 980 hours spent on the 360 makes the differences readily apparent. So, from that I can postulate that the PS4, having better hardware than the xbone, will look a bit better. Possibly up to 40% better or have 40% better performance (based on rumor)

Now don't get me wrong, xbone will look good too. Xbone looks cool and has some nice features but PS will be better on several levels. Its cheaper, has a user replaceable HD, better hardware, free games every month with PS+, and I was able to pre purchase one for launch day and get BF4 same day. Xbone still not available to order, well...I can order one that will get here some day.

Well if second screen is not available for 360/PS3 that's another reason to get next gen. Is it a next-gen selling ploy? Maybe. Live Maps for Halo were available 2 years ago so it has to be possible.
That being said, 360/PS3 players will be on more competitive levels with each other since no one will have a tablet with a live map sitting next to them.

I can't think though of a single elegant Apple-esque means to put a tablet in a location that is viewable at a glance.

I have my tablet right beside me at a good angle every night so this is a plus for me. I also think making it next gen only a ploy on buying the new systems. No reason why it can't work with the current gen.

It is quite possibly a system limitation. You gotta think current consoles predate most tablets and a good chunk of smartphones. To date, apps that work on games like Ghost Recon or Far Cry only work when your not playing and use a third party infrastructure. So its not out of the question that the BF app won't work on current hardware.

I haven't used it personally but I've heard good things with smartglass and forza horizon. It gives real time map data as you are racing so I think dice could do it. It could be the commander aspect of it that wont work also. Who really knows

Not a racing fan so not sure either. The two or three I have used were not really interactive.

I wonder if they will be using the smartglass feature or the battlelog app, or both combined.

We're those 2 games using the smartglass app or was it there own like the battlelog? I believe forza uses the smartglass app. I've only used it on the karaoke game and it came in handy.

Separate apps. Actually I've used battlelog, the farcry one and ghost recon app. Their all just 3rd party. Smartglass was cool from what I used but not for games more to see who is on and message.

Funny! smile.gif I actually like that it makes the pointing action so you're more aware if it worked or not.
