Can you please tell us if we will be able to play our own music (IE MP3) from the PS4 hdd? A lot of people are concerned about this because of the announcement of having to use Music Unlimited when listening to background music while playing games on the PS4.

I know some of the larger sites, Kotaku, Joystiq, etc are also curious as well. Thanks in advance.

@iceboy9020
It’s not sony that disappointed “us”. It’s you that disappointed yourself for not pre-ordering early enough. It’s common sense there will be a high demand for it so it’s your own fault. Beside, you may just be in luck to get yourself one…if you turn up to stores early enough. But if you want to join the xbox fan boys, at least you will have yourself a console. Plenty to go round as it’s unwanted

Meh…Ghosts has female soldiers in multiplayer and an Alien mode, so i’m far more interested in that game.

Just finished installing it, going to use the $10 from the psn promotion to get it on PS4. One question though, Im the only one getting it on ps4 out of my friends so if i switch back and forth between next gen and current will my stats keep on both?

+ xFuzylilManPeach on October 29th, 2013 at 7:55 am said:

I really love Battlefield. But unfortunately i wont be purchasing this until i get my PS4.

I could never and will never go back to playing an unrealistic CoD game ever again, no matter who it is made by. I think what EA DICE has done with the Frostbite engine in each game installment has been magnificent and its definitely what won Battlefield for me; I personally don’t feel any of the Cod games have changed. Maybe Ghost will be different.

And don’t get me wrong, Ghost visually looks awesome, but Frostbite 3 has blown me out of the f’ing water, both in visuals and actual realism.

I have a question, I pre ordered bf4 for the ps 4, I’m not getting it for ps3, if i order the premium membership on ps3 will that carry over to ps4 even though i never bought a ps3 bf4 version ? the reason I’m asking is because i want to take advantage of the $50 deal going on.

@Pavelbure1 it say in the description on psn that it gives you access to premium on both versions.

@kmtburton

I am almost positive that the stats/unlocks transfer can only be done once from the PS3 to the PS4. You can still play the game on PS3 however.

I was all set to get this but COD Ghosts really upped the ante with squad mode and couch co-op. They did not take anything for granted this year, so I preordered COD for PS4.

Ryumoaner: “COD has women and aliens, dur so that’s better than this”

This has to be your most moronic attempt at trolling. That all you can think of to say why you think COD is better?

That’s pretty sad if that’s all you have going for in that game. Then again, what minor improvement in that rehashed game that has run on an antiquated 10 year old engine? Not much else to look forward to I guess.

At least DICE actually works to make each installment better than the next, unlike the same drivel COD is year after year.

We both know you will read this, you are a sad sack of manure.

+ luvmyR6 on October 29th, 2013 at 9:10 am said:

Don’t put credence to the loser Ryumaou, he’s the resident troll. Its a Battlefield 4 post, yet here is talking about the crappy COD. Not surprised he’s a fan of game made for novices.

@iceboy9020, good then leave for the xbots. We don’t need slackjawed yokels who didnt plan in advance and now think Sony are the bad guys. You are on the same level as those who think Sony is scamming them because they put out a free game after they had purchased it. Go swell the ranks of Xbox mouthbreathers,

Anyone thinking of buying ps3 ver. beware !!

From IGN review:

”The 360 and PS3 versions of Battlefield 4 each suffer from screen-tearing, anti-aliasing issues, and low-res textures (many of which are noticeably worse on PS3). Fog and smoke effects obscure scenery often enough that it’s bothersome, and it lathers an unpleasant graphical grime on what seems to be a pretty world with remarkable character models. Everything looks unclean. Additionally, Battlefield 4′s campaign is packed with bugs on consoles – I saw more than a few floating enemies, enemy spawn closets, and objects disappearing from the environment.”

a few of my friends posting the trailer on the Facebook wall, and most of them on PC made me itch for the game (hours until the store updates?! :( )

but decided to jump into the Store anyway, and to my surprise it’s already up!?

if only I can stay up to try it out xD (past 12am here at the moment)

too bad i think the installation would take as long as the download.lol

can’t wait to jump in tomorrow!

upgrading to the PS4 version as well once it’s out.

quick question- Commander Mode is NOT available on the PS3,right? That was the last I heard of it..or has the situation changed and the PS3 does have support for tablet based Commander mode?

    Commander Mode is available on PS3 (if you haven’t been able to try it already), so no need to worry. But, you’ll need to have Rank 10 before you can start playing as a Commander, so don’t expect to jump into the action instantly.

Sorry…but there are 2 ways for me to get this game…1st is waiting for a price drop and buying it really,like super cheap and the 2nd is for free….not paying full price for a copied and pasted game….sorry Dice I’m an avid BF3 player but I know that EA forced you to make this cash-grabber….I’m BF3 premium but I ain’t supporting you guys anymore until you make a new game…plus the BF4 beta was really boring….didn’t felt that awesome like BF3.

+ etscott on October 29th, 2013 at 9:33 am said:

I would love a PS4 demo. The ps3 beta was fun, but doubling the number of players would be much more fun. Also, I played hours of the beta and heard almost no one with a mic. I’m a playstation fanboy of sorts, but the lack of vocal teamwork on online games on ps3 is depressing.

Why would I be mad? I’m not the one begging for a console on Day 1. Unlike some people I actually ordered it the day they announced the price, I’m actually hyped that in ~3 weeks I’ll have my hands on a PS4.

If you’re going to lie, at least come up with something better than, “oh I was just lying, I’m not a moron begging for a PS4, my wife preordered one, lolz, you only think I’m a moron.”

I’m going to be fine and dandy with my Day 1 preorder, not sure you are being totally honest about having it preordered though, on account of you begging for one in your earlier posts.

Maybe let this be a lesson for you on the next console release in 6-8 years, don’t wait until the last second to order one, so you aren’t left in the cold without one like with this release.

Sorry man, didn’t mean to drag you into this, this actually isn’t my main account for that very reason. Last time I called someone out out on their BS on my main account, I got death threats and angry PM’s……yeah some people actually take this a little too seriously. Not my fault they just post without thinking, making it so easy for me to call them out on the BS.

That’s why I post on this account, I never check my PM’s, hell I NEVER sign on with this, so they can PM me all they want I’ll never read what they say lol.

You say you have funds and then you say you can’t afford more. Which is it? If you have funds then you should be able to afford more. Or is it the wife doing all the hard earning and paying for everything while you sit on your bum? Either way, enjoy crapbox. Your wife will have the money to buy your PS4 when she get’s the funds. Until then don’t go building up her credit card or no PS4 for you
