Are they trolling us?

Really does seem like they've got something big coming. Almost sure we'll see BF4 tomorrow.[/QUOTE]

exclusive pre-order DLC confirmed

TriGen 02-19-2013 10:58 PM

Big third-party game for the PS4 tomorrow. Microsoft will have CoD and Madden at their event.

iNvid02 02-19-2013 10:58 PM

exclusive to gamestop and origin

should be shown tomorrow then

Hato-kun 02-19-2013 10:58 PM

Phew, glad someone capped that. EA retweeted as well.

DR2K 02-19-2013 10:58 PM

Was it supremely epic?

The Jason 02-19-2013 10:58 PM

Maybe trailer tomorrow?

Not going to get my hopes up with all the twitter hacking lately.

Edit: Origin tweeted too hype!

Why would they be trolling you?

EA already said they would unveil Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14 by their next fiscal call (which is the end of April/very early May).

Today, a lot of twitter accounts got "Hacked" with bullshit viral marketing shit. EA retweeting made it reasonably true.

Iceblade 02-19-2013 11:00 PM

Calling it now: with EA and Sony in bed with Battlefield 3's early DLC, Battlefield 4 is going to be revealed at the Sony event.

Sn4ke_911 02-19-2013 11:01 PM

What? they said reveal in about 2-3 months!?

[QUOTE=TriGen;47940021]Big third-party game for the PS4 tomorrow. Microsoft will have CoD and Madden at their event.[/QUOTE]

I remember how bad Madden was for this gen, it took like 3-4 years for it to be worth anything. I think 2008 was when it finally reached "ok" levels and matched the previous gen.

we give you guys bf4 preorder dlc so you dont sell used games next gen oke?
Or you know that guy outside will bring you home if you know what i mean.

Within, not "in about".

It could show up tomorrow.

I would say 2010 was when it was finally acceptable.

[QUOTE=Sn4ke_911;47940142]What? they said reveal in about 2-3 months!?[/QUOTE]

Within the next 90 days I believe. So unveiling it tomorrow with Sony makes a ton of sense.

Gives Sony a nice FPS counter point to MS with Call of Duty.

GANGSTERKILLER 02-19-2013 11:04 PM

BOOM. Next-gen begins when EA says so.

RoKKeR 02-19-2013 11:04 PM

[QUOTE=Nirolak;47940196]Within, not "in about".

I mean, that's the only thing I can imagine. I wouldn't be surprised if EA held a preview event for high ranking industry people (Gamestop CEO in this case) to show off what they've got in terms of next gen.

EA's been in bed with Sony for the last few years when it comes to PS3 DLC deals, so this isn't surprising at all. Of course the game will still be multiplatform, but we'll probably see the "get DLC a week early on PS3" relationship continue into next gen.

Yeah, I think most sports games take a couple years at least before they benefit from new hardware significantly.

dwu8991 02-19-2013 11:05 PM

Any news on the next coming out COD by the way ?

Metalmurphy 02-19-2013 11:05 PM

PS4, GT6 and BF4 tomorrow?


My heart won't be able to handle it!

funkystudent 02-19-2013 11:05 PM

Would not be shocked if it showed up at Sony.

I was already expecting it to be there. Seems like a perfect "look at all those graphics" game they can demo.

You're probably right, I remember 2010 being decent.

Same. I figured there would be at least one big third-party game shown, and BF4 makes the most sense if you're going for the "wow" factor graphically.

Derrick01 02-19-2013 11:11 PM

I have to say I would be really interested to see how it is on PS4. I skipped 3 because it was the first to force Origin and I suck at mouse and keyboard (although I put up with it for BC2 on PC) and the console versions were dogshit. Now that the tech has supposedly caught up they should be impressive.

Wasn't that because they couldn't deliver on the promise of giving PS 3 preorders BF1943 for free?

big phail if that's their one 3rd party reveal

Rikyfree 02-19-2013 11:16 PM

Would love to see more Battlefield! Love BF3!

chiablo 02-19-2013 11:17 PM

Makes sense why they are doing a huge battlefield sale on Origin. Make people talk about Battlefield again, then drop the golden turd during the PS4 announcement.

PsychoWARD23 02-19-2013 11:17 PM

[QUOTE=jiggle;47940704]big phail if that's their one 3rd party reveal[/QUOTE]

64 player multiplayer with "next gen graphics" would be an easy persuasion tool. It'd also be the first military shooter on next gen consoles, putting Cod at a disadvantage, and potentially pull players from it to BF4. It makes a lot of sense from the point of Sony and EA.

W1SSY 02-19-2013 11:19 PM

[QUOTE=jiggle;47940704]big phail if that's their one 3rd party reveal[/QUOTE]

What else would you want? In terms of stuff that hasn't been shown I would say BF4 is a pretty big thing. For me I would love to see the next Battlefield and that is something that would make me real interested in picking up a PS4 sooner rather than later.

strafer 02-19-2013 11:20 PM

Damn tease.

TalesOfWin 02-19-2013 11:22 PM

if BF4 is shown tomorrow my mind is blown! I hope it has female soldiers.

[QUOTE=jiggle;47940704]big phail if that's their one 3rd party reveal[/QUOTE]

yeah what a big fail, showing the successor of something that moved around 15 million units. Not CoD numbers, but still.

Doffen 02-19-2013 11:22 PM

Didn't Sony have commercial agreement with EA for BF3?

brogan 02-19-2013 11:24 PM

Tomorrow is going to be glorious! :)

If we get to see BF4 there will be a shit fits everywhere.

not really. EA and Sony (Battlefield and Medal of Honor) relationship felt like a counter to Microsoft and Activision (Call of Duty).

Voice of Reason 02-19-2013 11:24 PM

Tomorrow's footage and destruction should be insane.

BlackArrow 02-19-2013 11:24 PM

Sony showing off Battlefield 4 tomorrow on next-gen tech would be huge.

Fucking please show off BF 4 tomorrow.

Exclusive multiplayer skin Kaz Hirai.

Boerseun 02-19-2013 11:27 PM

After the massive dissappoinment of Battlefield 3, I find it hard to care about this franchise going forward. Heck, at this point they'd have to pay me to play it.
