They obviously want more WW2 shooters! *gag*

annnnnyway. I guess I should wait on preordering until the beta or launch is closer.

There's a lot of people that would love to see them make Battlefield 2143.

Good news to everyone who bought Premium for BF3.

DICE posted a new premium video with this at the end:

:D So no need to pre-order just to get BF4 Beta access, you already have it :D

awesome :)

I definitely don't regret getting premium, it was an excellent deal for all the extras and dlc you get.

It's not the setting, it's just that the popular take on modern military shooters have hit a kind of critical mass by continually leaning on this formula of big spectacle & quick time events. The actual game design often feels like an after thought or just a vehicle to the next over blown set piece.

There seems like little attempt to bring anything new to series in terms of mechanics.

this should be a service-pack/patch not a new game.

Not keen on how anything gaming / tech related works? or sarcasm?

New interview with DICE

A good read :D

The big Battlefield 4 interview: DICE leaves technology behind

Frostbite 3, Wii U and why it's not just about pretty graphics.

http://www.eurogamer...chnology-behind

From that article..

What makes me the most proud of what we showed yesterday is that people seem to know the characters by name after 17 minutes. That's pretty decent. You don't see that that often in video games. You don't often even pick up who the characters are.

It's funny because all I remember from the video about the characters in it is that there was 3 white guys and one black guy. They gave literally no reason to care about the characters.

And statements like this from it also just confuse the hell out of me:

There's a big shift in mindset at the studio when it comes to creating experience rather than just creating technology, or, how big are our maps? That discussion is fading away. It's all about, does it feel cool? Do you like it? Is it awesome? And then we reverse engineer that into, what features do we need to do that?

What does that even mean? It doesn't sound like they took the criticisms that BF3 got into consideration at all.

Graphics. That's all there is to it. And that's ENOUGH! Just like with Crysis 3 being an interactive CryEngine tech demo. Now, if there was also a good gameplay or narrative mixed in or anything, I hereby excuse myself that I'd just go into an emotional overload state and spontaneously combust.

Lalalaa, not interested, I play for pretty graphics... lalala, not listening.

I wouldn't pay for a multi only game.

As far as Battlefield goes, you're in the minority, based on the series' past. Battlefield is known solely for its multiplayer. I for one do agree with you, but a lack of single player would not affect my purchase of a Battlefield game. I'll leave single player to every other game I own. FYI - regardless of game, I do complete all single player content available before moving to multiplayer.

Crysis, sadly, is truly about graphics, the story is incredibly "meh" but I have to admit I do thoroughly enjoy the multiplayer, wish more people played it.

Well I guess this will give me a good incentive to get another 680 for SLI. The graphics look pretty sick.

I was not left speechless. Wait... mabye I was,,, as to the sorry state games are lately. I get more out of watching LPers derping it up in a lot of FPS games lately then actually playing them myself.

mabye MP is better... who knows.... but I don't see dropping full retail on this .

I really don't get this attitude? Exactly what is it that you know about this game that the rest of us don't? I mean, it showed us some single player action that was pretty intense, looked really good, and in no way really showed us much else. Certainly not enough to be down on single player.

I kind of get the impression that you'd of been a negative nellie no matter what the video would of had in it. No offense.

As far as Crysis 1 goes the gameplay was alright. Nothing special, but not bad. Crysis 2 was very...claustrophobic. 'Here're the guys you need to get past, heres some guns and ammo to do it with, get to it'

Crysis 3 was the first one that was actually fun to play all around, IMO.

Just to let you guys know, if you have BF3 Premium you'll get access to the BF4 beta.

I didn't pre-order BF4 but when I look on Origin:

Maybe you have to restart Origin? Or they're taking their sweet time and slowly adding people bit by bit.

I just happened to randomly check for no real reason and saw it.

Doesn't matter, when it's ready you'll both have access; they ended the BF3 premium video with the beta access information aka official confirmation. wooo! :woot:

Electronic Sports, abbreviated e-Sports is used as a general term to describe the play of video games competitively. Other terms include...

Don't we already do this with the leaderboards? or is this something else? like to see who is the best bf4 player or?

Electronic sports (eSports) is competitive gaming. Games like StarCraft 2, League of Legends and even Dota 2 are popular eSports games. They're games that can be played competitively in tournaments with large prize money. I believe Dota 2 had a $1M tournament and League of Legends has tournaments with eve more prize money.

      EA forms new studio 'Full Circle' for the next Skate title's development
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Following years of fan requests for a new Skate, Electronic Arts finally confirmed last year that the popular skateboarding franchise is returning. The title now has a studio attached to it, with EA today unveiling Full Circle, a brand new game development studio set in Vancouver that is focused solely "on the next evolution of Skate."

      Full Circle has gained Daniel McCulloch as its general manager, who has previously worked at Microsoft heading Xbox Live. “The fans wished Skate back into existence, and we want them to feel involved in the process from development to game launch and beyond," said McCulloch in a statement to VentureBeat. "We want them to feel like they are a part of Full Circle."

      As the original announcement stated in June of last year, core developers from previous installments, Cuz Parry and Deran Chung, are attached to the game as designers. Currently, there is a large number of open positions available at Full Circle, with the studio looking for engineers, designers, animators, coordinators, artists, and other talents based in Vancouver as well as various parts of the U.S.

      "We’re all about having fun and making great games that people want to play with their friends," added McCulloch. "And, we’re looking for more developers to help us build compelling worlds for players to explore."

      The new Skate entry does not have release platforms, a launch window, nor a definite name attached to it yet. Considering the studio is still being populated, it will definitely be some time before the game materializes.

      European consumer organization files complaint against Nintendo for Joy-Con drift
      by João Carrasqueira

      It's been almost four years since the Nintendo Switch made its debut on the market, but complaints about the console's Joy-Con controllers show no signs of stopping. Today, BEUC, the European consumer organization, has filed a formal complaint to the European Commission and national consumer protection authorities in the EU against the Japanese giant for premature obsolescence of its hardware.

      As you might expect, the issue lies in what's become known as Joy-Con drift - when the analog sticks in the Joy-Con controllers start registering inputs without any actual interaction from the user, causing characters to move on their own. BEUC states that this flaw makes the console "unusable".

      BEUC has worked with a number of consumer associations around the European Union, which started investigations a few months ago, and has received over 25,000 complaints from customers in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, Norway, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Greece. According to consumer reports, 88% of cases of Joy-Con drift happen within two years of buying the console.

      BEUC's Director General, Monique Goyens, said:

      Nintendo has yet to fully acknowledge that something is wrong, so the organization claims that consumers are being misled by omission of key information, based on the EU's Unfair Commercial Practices Directive. BEUC urges Nintendo to fix the issues as quickly as possible, as well as inform consumers of the limited longevity of the Joy-Con and repair them for free until the issue is fixed. Nintendo has already been offering free repairs in some regions for a while now, despite not making any announcements regarding fixes or changes to the Joy-Con's design.

      Xbox Live now has 100 million active monthly users, Game Pass has 18 million subscribers
      by Sylvester Addo



      Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced the earnings for the second quarter of the firm's 2021 fiscal year today, which show that the company brought in $43.1 billion in revenue spurred by gaming, office and the cloud.

      The demand for gaming saw Xbox earnings go up by 51 percent. This also includes Xbox content and services such as Xbox Live and Xbox Game Pass, which saw an increase of 40 percent in revenue. The company also recorded a few firsts; exceeding $2 billion in revenue from third-party titles and surpassing $5 billion in gaming revenue for the first time.

      Microsoft also shared that the Xbox Series X and Series S launch was the most successful in its history, with "the most devices ever sold in a launch month".

      Nadella announced that Xbox Live now has more than 100 million monthly active users and Xbox Game Pass has 18 million subscribers. This shows Xbox Game Pass growing by about eight million subscribers in under a year with the company announcing it had over 10 million subscribers in April last year.

      The growth can be attributed to the company's transformation of gameplay with cloud gaming being an example. Another significant factor is the ongoing COVID-19 situation in which people have found themselves spending more time at home, relying on digital forms of entertainment.

      by Jay Bonggolto

      Plex announced today a new game subscription service that features a whole library of retro games. The new game streaming called Plex Arcade will cost $4.99 per month.

      Subscribers can play games on iOS, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Windows, macOS, and Android devices. Plex says it plans to add support for more platforms in the future.

      For the new game subscription, Plex has teamed up with Atari whose titles such as Centipede, Lunar Lander, and Motor Psycho, among others, will be available to customers. The company also partnered with Parsec whose technology helps to improve the players' gaming experience by reducing latency.

      To start playing retro games, you will need a Plex Media server version 1.21.2 or newer on Windows or macOS. You also need to connect your Parsec account to your Plex account. Supported controllers include any Bluetooth or USB game controller, although Plex recommends a Sony DualShock 4 or Xbox One controller for best performance.

      Arcade is available starting today and you can sign up here. For Plex Pass subscribers, the service will cost only $2.99 per month. There's also a seven-day free trial if you want to test the game subscription first.
