While this is only the Xbox One product page, I imagine they'll update the PS4 one after tonight's conference.

Fantastic news, Battlefield should have a large presence on next gen this fall.
I struggled to see how it looked any different to Battlefield 3 on PC.

I'm not saying that to be pissy, and if you only played BF3 on console then the jump is huge, but having played BF3 on PC at high settings and 1080p/60fps I was struggling to notice any huge jump to BF4.
Too many players and the maps become unplayable 64 in the past has proven to be a good balance.

This whole notion of more players = better is so misguided. Sure, if the maps are balanced that way, but DICE never does this. Every large map in BF3 is geared towards 32p. The smaller maps, like CQ, 24 players. Any more than this and you might as well be playing Call of Duty.
Digital Foundry I need you on this after tonight.

I forgot who it was telling me about the f'ing cloud will give Microsoft an edge with players online. Had to set him straight and I was right.

Then dont play on servers with 128 players. Let the rest of us enjoy the carnage.

Its like the people that bitch about Metro 64 players. Fuck off and go elsewhere. You arent forced to play there.
It looked incredible, I thought it was a nice step up from from BF3. 60 fps was a total surprise for me, honestly. I'm perfectly fine with 30, either way. Just didn't expect that for consoles. And Halo is 60 as well? If these games are 1080p too then consoles have really closed the gap.
