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!

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

Wtf is going on with BF4 on Xbox 720 vs 360.

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...

"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.

I don't think it is going to be released for next gen consoles.

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.

He is saying they can't announce its available on next gen until the next gen's are officially announced so they have to was for Microsoft which happens sometime this month correct?

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

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.
