However, I don't feel BF4 is going to be gimped by the current gen consoles. The PS3 and 360 versions of BF4 will probably be more gimped than BF3 is on the current gen consoles (it is pretty gimped despite those saying BF3 is consolized). This will encourage people to make the switch to next gen. consoles but not completely alienate those who choose to stay with the current gen. EA has done this before on the NFS series as well.
BF4 will be a PC game only, then ported to the Consol systems (easily). BF4 will not be released on current gen consol systems, only the new PS4 & xbox720 due out this xams dude... stop with ur crazy-ness.
Your jaded view is because you are not reading what DICE is saying. C'mon how is BF4 going to be like BF3, ..when BF3 does not even have a Commander..!! dude.. so *** r u talking about? U have no idea what DICE has been suggesting... do you remember submarines and/or aircraft carrier moving in the ocean..?
then ****.. bcuse DICE themselves said imagine BF2, with our technology today..
Secondly, understand that both xbox720 & PS4 will have AMD DX11 chips in them, so downsizeing BF4 to fit the consol's platform won't be that hard. But DICE has said themselves, ..that Battlefield 4 is a PC game first & formost. Read their own blog.
Coincidentally, if u didn't know, DICE used BF Heroes, BC. BC, BC2 & BF3 to target all the upstarts who had never played a PC game, let-alone a PC shooter, but the upstarts that only knew COD, etc. The consolidation comes from both Consol's & PC's moving to 8GB of memory and multi-core 64bit environment.
