4w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared a PS4 video today and discussed Battlefield 4 Commanders on PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: With PS4's North American launch just days away, we wanted to provide a quick update on our experiences with Battlefield 4 and show off our new interview with DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson - watch it below.
On the PS4 multiplayer side, Battlefield 4 boasts an impressive visual presentation, rendering atmospheric lighting and lavish weather effects you won't see on the PS3 version. The game's visual variety is a major strength: I waged war across a startling array of environments, from Flood Zone's waterlogged alleyways to Golmud Railway's dazzling blue skies and emerald fields.
Throughout it all, the multiplayer side zoomed along at or near 60 frames per second, giving the game a brisk, responsive feel that gives the game's infantry combat a huge shot in the arm.
Of course, vehicular combat is a huge part of Battlefield's appeal, and BF4's jets, tanks, jeeps, and boats don't disappoint. The amphibious combat is particularly interesting, with BF4's new physics-based wave model adding a new strategic wrinkle to combat on the high seas. With up to 64 players...

10w ago - DICE Community Manager Vincent Vukovic announced that the Battlefield 4 Open Beta starts today on PS3 with details below, as follows:
Help Us Make the Game Better
These are exciting times for Battlefield fans, and everyone at DICE! Today, we're releasing the Battlefield 4 open beta on PS3, and we want you all to join.
Simply by taking part in the beta, you'll help us test the servers, online functionality, and gameplay to make sure the PS3 launch on October 29th goes as smoothly as possible.
In the open beta, you'll be able to play both the classic Conquest mode and Domination, which you might recognize from Battlefield 3: Close Quarters (it's basically a faster and tighter version of Conquest, with more emphasis on infantry combat). The map on offer is Siege of Shanghai - you might recognize it from E3, when we first unveiled it and where the public got their very first hands-on with Battlefield 4.
Now, we want to bring that experience - complete with game-changing Levolution events like the big skyscraper collapsing or setting off car alarms - to all of our fans on PS3. It's you, the player, triggering these moments.
We're also looking to our fans to provide valuable feedback on the overall gaming experience. This is in every sense...
16w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Sid Shuman went hands on today with Battlefield 4 Multiplayer on PS4.
Below are the details, as follows: DICE's upcoming Battlefield 4 has captured the attention of military shooter enthusiasts for a host of reasons, not the least of which is the game's promise of 64-player multiplayer warfare running at a smooth 60 frames per second on PS4.
At Gamescom, I got some hands-on time with the first PS4 build of the game - we were among the first group to play the PS4 build outside of DICE. Here's a quick after-action report.
For starters, the game runs at fluid 60 fps and its benefits were instantly noticeable on PS4. This translates to a decidedly smoother, much more responsive feel compared to Battlefield 3 on PS3.
The speedy framerate means that the game simply controls better, whether you're quickly sweeping your aiming reticule to ward off a surprise close-range attack or making smaller aiming adjustments to nail a precise headshot. Sprinting and vaulting over low cover also feels much more responsive and gives you an edge in the game's sprawling battle zones, where death lurks around every corner and peers out of every window.
BF4 also benefits hugely from the many refinements of DualShock 4. The overhauled L2 and R2 triggers wrap...
