By James Orry ( @VGJames ) On 26th Jul, 2013 at 11:12am Battlefield 4 may yet allow players to transfer their stats and progression from current to next-gen, the official Battlefield Twitter account has revealed. Only yesterday it was reported that Battlefield 4 will not support cross-gen saves , but new Tweets indicate DICE is listening to its community. “We’ve heard reports that players would like their stats and progression to transfer from current to next-gen in #BF4,” reads the Tweet. “We’re investigating.” Further Tweets also reveal that Commander Mode will be available via a standalone app on iOS and Android tablet. “There is a free stand-alone Commander Mode app that you can download to play the game on your tablet,” explains a Tweet. “Commander Mode will only support iOS tablet devices including the iPad as well as Android tablets such as the Google Nexus.” And finally, DICE has also confirmed that Premium will return in Battlefield 4. “Yes. There will be a premium version of Battlefield 4,” reads a Tweet.
This racing game is in alpha build, will be powered by Torgue 3D as well as the amazing next-gen physics engine of BeamNG and there isnt any ETA as of yet. BeamNG aims to release first its physics solution, so here is hoping that it wont have a negative impact to the game itself. Kudos also to YouTubes member RecycledSpoons for the second gameplay footage. Oh, and you can find some car crashes if you visit nadeox1s YT channel . Enjoy!
“When we launch the game [this August] we won’t be on those platforms, we’ll be on the current gen stuff, and to be fair, we are launching ahead of those consoles,” he told Digital Spy. “Infinity is a product we see having a long life span, it’ll be developed for years to come. I don’t have specific details or plans about that, but it seems inevitable that we’ll have to cross that bridge.” Day added that toys and toy readers released now will be compatible with future consoles. “We’ve invested a lot of time and technology into future proofing all the stuff we’ve got,” he said. “We’re going to be using the same reader, the same near-field communications tech moving forward.

The controller is priced at $59.99 (which works out as about 39 and AU$65) and the Chat Headset can be bought for $24.99 (about 16 / AU$27) however it probably won’t convert directly, so expect those numbers to look a bit different if you’re non-US. But if that US price for the Xbox One controller still looks a bit steep that’s because it’s priced at $10 (about 6.50 / AU$11) more than the Xbox 360 controller – and we expect that price hike to be seen in other territories outside the US too. One love Microsoft is also offering a ‘Play and Charge’ rechargeable battery kit for $74.99 (about 49 / AU$81) for those who have moved on from the dark ages of AAs. None of these have been priced on the UK site yet but we’ve contacted Microsoft to see when the specific UK prices might appear, and we’ll update as soon as we know. The Xbox One is currently priced at $499 / 425 / AU$599 while the PS4 arrives a fair bit cheaper at $399 / 349 / AU$549, although you’ll need to shell out more for the PS4 Eye as it won’t be bundled with the console.

It happened with the PlayStation, the PS2, the PS3, the Xbox, the Xbox 360 and the Wii U, and it’ll happen again with the Xbox One and PS4. The RRP of current-gen games is actually still 49.99, most shops just sell them for cheaper to compete with their rivals. Give it six months and it’ll be easy to find new next-gen games in most places (except the aforementioned) for forty quid. Rob – Electronic Arts didn’t lose money by sinking its online pass system. And it’s not likely it will raise game prices above the competition. Tamoor – Rob can be so cold sometimes.
by Andrew Goldfarb July 23, 2013 EA has high hopes for the launches of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One . In a call reporting EAs first-quarter earnings for the 2014 fiscal year today, EA COO Peter Moore explained that Microsoft and Sony are reporting upward trends for their respective console releases. According to Moore, consumers are acutely aware that new hardware is coming, and their excitement is growing. Moore says that Microsoft reports Xbox One pre-orders trending ahead of Xbox 360, while Sony believes PlayStation 4 will be its biggest hardware launch ever. Moore noted that EA believes both new consoles are spectacular and expects millions of consumers to make the transition to better graphics and more online features. He noted that EAs goal is to make moving day painless by minimizing inconveniences as gamers transition from the current generation. This comes just a few days after Microsofts Aaron Greenberg tweeted that demand for Xbox One is through the roof, and after several retailers suspended pre-orders for the new console. Meanwhile, GI.biz reports that Baird analyst Colin Sebastian believes Xbox One could outship PlayStation 4 this fall.
