10 Reasons to Play Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360

Powered by our advanced Frostbite 3 engine, Battlefield 4 represents the pinnacle of this generation. It brings together the most stunning visuals ever seen on a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, the most varied gameplay with the most chaotic, dramatic experience of all-our war breaking loose around you. No other game can do what Battlefield 4 does. With less than 6 weeks until the launch of Battlefield 4 on Xbox 360 and PS3, let us count the ways that Battlefield 4 will blow you away on October 29.



BRING YOUR UNLOCKS WHEN YOU MAKE THE JUMP TO NEXT-GEN Be the best you can be on Day 1 on next-gen. If you start playing Battlefield 4 on the current generation of consoles and make the jump to next-gen, you can bring all of your stats and unlocks.

You could join the next generation battle armed to the teeth and with a massive amount of unlocks, camos, and paints already unlocked. Learn more

BRING DOWN A SKYSCRAPER. DESTROY AN ISLAND Levolution is about dynamic environments; how you affect the world, and how the world affects you back. But it’s not just about epic moments like the skyscraper falling down in a massive cloud of dust. It’s also the little things, like being alerted to enemy presence using metal detectors. It’s taking out the lights to be able to pick off enemies using your IRNV scope. It’s about trapping your foes inside a room with your cooked grenade. Levolution will change you how you play the game. Learn more



TRY THE GAME EARLY IN THE OPEN BETA Battlefield 4 is going into Beta soon so get into the action early! Join us on the Siege of Shanghai map and help us bring down the skyscraper. The Open Beta will be available on PC, PS3, and X360, starting October 4. Learn more

Learn more



TACTICAL AND CHALLENGING WATER-BASED COMBAT You’ve seen the gameplay from our Paracel Storm map. One of the ways we’re bringing more diversity to Battlefield 4 is to increase the importance of naval combat. We’re doing this by increasing the number and types of naval units available to you. The other way is to create networked waves in multiplayer – this means all players in an online match will experience the same treacherous seas. This lets you hide between waves creating a cat-and-mouse type gameplay with enemies. You can engage in both challenging and tactically deep water-based combat like never before. Where water-based combat used to be played on a mostly flat water surface, it’s now played on anything from calm waters to raging oceans. Learn more

    why can i not use my tag from bf3 on bf4? it tells me that its invalid or reserved how is that possible?

  • draegen 10.14.13 at 15:10

    On November 15th I will own 4 platforms to play this game with friends on. I’m not going to spend $240 on the base game and an extra $200 for premium on each. EA, we need a cheaper option/Multi platform premium pack. And we need a discount for going from 360 to ps4. Great game though!

  • nonTROOL3r598 10.12.13 at 16:17

    its cheaper then getting the xbox one

  • WeezelKing13 10.07.13 at 14:01

    Everyone is dumb we’re playing a next gen game on crapy current consoles. On top of that this games in beta, a trial. In a beta there not testing the final graphics but the games servers and mechanics.

    • RagenRyan 10.10.13 at 04:24

      i hear ya. its ea trying to steal 10 bucks from your pocket.

      • onedjchiszle 10.14.13 at 01:13

        how old are you? or are you not remembering the past? because just 6 or 7 years ago we would have needed to pay full price for the game twice if we wanted it on 2 generations of consoles. Sure they’re getting $10 but at least it’s only 10. Plus you can always not buy the game twice

      • thedialtech 10.15.13 at 07:52

        Here we go with the anti-EA speech again…

  • mikeaj1011 10.07.13 at 13:52

    I like everything on the beta. i’ll say the graphics are decent on current gen-console. the only thing i dont like is the counter-knifing system. its to easy to counter so theirs basically no point of stabbing from the front.

    • Coreyweb 10.07.13 at 17:08

      It SHOULD be pointless to go for a knife from the front. You shouldn’t be stabbing from the front anyway. If I see you coming of course I’m not gonna let you just walk up and get a insta-knife-kill.

  • Xyth0s 10.07.13 at 00:51

    DICE, I’m kind of disappointed with the beta. I play the beta on the Xbox 360. The beta is super fun. Too much is left out on conquest though. I know the hardware limitations could be and probably are part of the reason, but, if you can do it on PC and in BF3, I think you can add what is needed now being boats, LAVs, and the transport + attack helis. Also, the graphics suck. I thought they’d be better even with the Xbox 360s hardware limitations. BF3 Graphics are better! Please improve this DICE! I better not have wasted $60 on a game that is bad.

  • dprince72 10.06.13 at 07:09

    WOW it is amazing how fast the incredibly poor reviews are pouring in over the web on the demo and changes made to this game. But Funnier still is how the paid reviews from IGN, Gameinformer, Etc. Are like this game is amazing. Obviously they weren’t playing the same game we ALL are.

  • SyKoTiCxXxVeNoM 10.04.13 at 07:27

    I really love Battlefield, but i don’t like the counterknife so much because it is way too easy to stop a knife from the front. Otherwise i love the BF$ Beta alot.

    • Coreyweb 10.07.13 at 17:10

      DON’T Knife from the front then. You should never be able to get an insta-kill by running up and knifing me from the front. If you’re are that dumb then yes….you should be punished with a counter ability.

  • SKU77S 10.03.13 at 22:56

    I’ve played the 360 version and watched the pc version on a very decent setup.

    Great detail, good map design. Its very pretty [until you blow it up!] ON PC. Console of course leave most thing absent.

    The elevators feel thrown in. You could have incorporated more stories beyond top and bottom to add depth.

    The halo sniper trail.

    So many options that are going to decide the market are locked in beta. [With the option there] ergo commander mode, the absence of boats,l and attack choppers on console etc.

    In some ways the beta feels like a roll back of BF 3 with new controls.

    With the supposed price of consoles why not look into a pc, as a console player I certainly will be. If there was an option for split screen [even offline] or LAN I would immediately change my mind as that’s the intended purpose of consoles.

    • Coreyweb 10.07.13 at 17:13

      Totally agree with the more floors idea. I like the idea of vertical game-play. But it doesn’t feel very dynamic at all. Just like…..bottom floor……top floor. Completely disconnected…

  • Zlasher 10.03.13 at 11:58

    This isn’t 10 reasons to play on PS3 or Xbox – it’s two reasons to get it now on console. An 8 reasons to play BF4 on any (other) platform.. Highly misleading.. Now give me 8 more rasons to get this on PS3 and not wait..

  • BSG-ArchieHicox 10.02.13 at 18:32

    Now that I have played the beta on PS3 I will never buy BF4 on current gen console. 10 freeze within 30 minutes, bugs, bugs and freeze. It’s a beta ok, but I should at least be able to play it. Seriously that beta sucks on console and it shouldn’t have been released.

  • TheDiaperButtKid 10.01.13 at 21:35

    Pre-orders must be pretty bad on the consoles for a blog (advertisement) like this to appear.

  • tuga89 10.01.13 at 14:59

    muito bom este beta.

  • Ethylene125 10.01.13 at 07:58

    Will beta run on my rented server? pS3

  • Wh1t3gh0st 10.01.13 at 04:24

    Can I haz recon?

  • gatordone911 09.30.13 at 15:34

    BF4 is going 2 be the most bad ass game ever no matter what u use 2 play it on , come on back!

  • deming12 09.30.13 at 09:17

    to all the people who are in here whinning and boo hooing about this gen vs. next gen its pretty damn simple…….don’t buy it……….shut your mouth………and go on about your business……….if you don’t like it……..see you in the game.

  • BOBBYSOUTH 09.30.13 at 02:41

    could u please make battlelog achievements cross console especially on the mobile devices

  • Captain_Tasevski 09.29.13 at 21:10

    Sadly, I agree. Really bad blog post. Those who want to play next gen will wait for next gen, unless they are really in a rush….then an upgrade is ONLY 9.99!!! That’s right, only 9.99!!! (did they mention download only? yes – exactly. No hard copy for you!)

  • AngryDave-UK 09.29.13 at 19:00

    So the top 2 reasons to play BF4 on current gen consoles are focused on getting you over to next gen consoles lol. I thought this post was going to attempt to give more insight as to why the game would still be worth playing as a current gen title.

  • Joao611 09.29.13 at 15:06

    This is the most stupid blog post I’ve ever seen in this blog.

    Btw, 1st and 2nd “reasons” are the same reason…

    • DevilDogUSA 09.29.13 at 20:24

      This wasn’t a stupid blog post. It just gave me more reasons to be excited for the game. And was useful in explaining more futures. Go back under the rock you crawled out from.

  • Cerberuz 09.29.13 at 10:54

    I was hoping you’d be doing something similar to another popular military shooter that’s out soon where you can buy the game on X360 and then download it on Xbox ONE and still use both copies, so you can play with friends that may not have bought a new console! Come on EA, It’s a big ask to try and get gamer’s to leave their mates behind on last gen when you’ve moved on to next gen and they haven’t..

  • Mr-taha117 09.28.13 at 23:07

    Sounds awesome :D

  • Collision_TN 09.28.13 at 22:00


  • TimmyAHero 09.28.13 at 21:25

    But it’s still best for PC…

  • GeroniMOE 09.28.13 at 17:24

    Already order the PS4 and PC versions!

  • Fataldisk 09.28.13 at 12:40

    PC, None of the transfer stuff .

  • jTs Xbox 360 09.28.13 at 09:48

    remember. game saves won’t be transferable between current-gen over to next-gen (the catch). multiplayer stats etc. are transferable (by server).

  • wWaAVve 09.28.13 at 09:07

    Reason # 11

    This scene I am describing below happened while playing on a current gen console…

    Visually one of the greatest scenes for Battlefield 3 is on Alborz Mountain…(Tank Superiority) (not so much the map layout) but visually one of the greatest and hard to top scenes is…

    …running alongside a group of tanks charging down a steep snowy, rocky mountainside, as they are knocking down tall pine trees that slowly crash to the ground on the way to meet the enemy group of tanks at the bottom where a battle begins with shell explosions kicking up huge powdered snow sprays that shoot upwards in slow motion with a crumbling misty sound of the pieces of snow landing near you as you run through the cloud of white fog to see an open Battle on ice of laser trails of tank blasts and long trailing rockets from shoulder launchers…

    That’s fuckin’ HOTH pal!!!

    DICE, please do something like that in B4!

    And use it as test ground for that other little project ;)

    • wWaAVve 09.28.13 at 09:29

      And that’s a compliment to DICE from a guy who worked for NFL Films :)

  • SebWW69 09.28.13 at 05:42

    I have only 2 good reasons of why I’m gonna play Battlefield 4 on PS3.
    1. I don’t have the money to get a PS4 or a better PC right now
    2. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 have some issues online, if it wasn’t for this I would play BFBC2 on PC instead of BF4 on PS3

  • LORD MELVIN III 09.28.13 at 02:20

    2 of these reasons are just about upgrading to NEXT gen

  • Del Karma 09.28.13 at 02:17


  • Agrikaan 09.28.13 at 01:01

    Yeah, well, you can argue all you want, but playing a FPS on a console is like mast***bating with yoyr feet. It’s possible… But why would you? :)

    • Crashpilot_GER 09.28.13 at 18:34

      Some people like the advantages of a console more than the one’s for PC

    • Cerberuz 09.29.13 at 10:46

      So basically you’re just here as a “PC” game player to troll a post about Xbox 360 & PS3?

      I moved from PC to console back in the 90′s when the first playstation came out, and I’ve not looked back.. I used to be over obsessive about processors, gfx cards and memory, but then I realised that it’s much easier to have the games I want to play without all the issues with drivers or needing the must have gfx card… (Console versions of a game are well known to outsell PC versions by at least 30-40%..)

      Let gamers decide how they want to play,the games they buy, and stop trying to force your views onto everyone!

  • theC0L0SS 09.28.13 at 00:52

    Most those reasons apply to next gen also? Im not desperate enough to not wait 2 weeks for next gen copies.
