Are they trolling us?

Was just about to post this thread. Origin also retweeted them saying "BF4 is coming".

Wouldn't be surprised to see it tomorrow at the PS4 reveal. That would be huge.

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

Within, not "in about".

It could show up tomorrow.
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.

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

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.
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.

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.

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

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.
