Battlefield 4 disappoints me.

Not the game itself, but Dice, for making stupid restrictions on it. So here's the story.

At my college, we have a game room with 5 Xbox 360's hooked up to 5 flatscreens. Because my brother is still at home, I decided to leave him the Xbox and take a controller or two to use at college. I've played my fair share of games on these Xboxes, but when I finally got BF4 for Black Friday and went down to the game room to play it...it didn't work. Apparently, BF4 was not made to work on Xbox 360 Slims.

EVERY SINGLE XBOX IN THE GAME ROOM HERE IS A SLIM.

So now I have a new game here with me at college that I can only play at home.

I'm not gonna lie, this sounds like utter bullsh*t. The software isn't any different? How can a slim not run a game that a regular 360 can?

I think I got it wrong then... but there was something that it didn't have that the new 360s have, I'll check it out.

Just to clear up on why it didn't work, I read that the Slims use an internal usb drive of some sort. BF4 requires that you have an Xbox 360 hard drive (aka: one that you can physically detatch from your console) in order for it to work.

Its still utter bullsh*t. I played like 2 matches on my Xbox at home, and then I come back to college and cant do sh*t.

and that, kids, is why you don't try and play a technologically advanced game on a console that is like, 8 years old.

Camy, please just stop with the thinly veiled PC master race silly-ness. Okay, so you think the PC is better than consoles, and technically, you're probably right. But not all of us have the money to be constantly upgrading, or maybe we use a console because there's a specific game that we can only get on that console, or maybe they just have their own reasons for using a console.
So please camy, comments like this aren't called for, so I would appreciate it if you toned it down, okay?

I apologize to Silent for going off-topic, but I'm trying to address this for good.

Give him a break, I don't think his intention was to bash on consoles...

And he's right, playing battlefield 4 on a 360 is pretty stupid, I believe that's the whole conclusion of this thread.

actually i wasn't being a PC master race person, i was just saying that BF4 on last gen consoles are crap, and this is what happens.

this gen of consoles would have been better to get it on.

just saying.

thank you. someone actually noticed that i didn't mention "PC" in my last comment.

quite frankly Legal i don't care about that debate. each is good for certain things, and that is the end of it. and yet again, i never brought that up in this thread.

and like i and Mike said before, the conclusion of this thread is that i think that last gen consoles are going to get pretty bad ports like this one for the next couple of years, it's a shame really.

Worst. Campaign. Ever

Battlefield 3 had an awful campaign and I thought that they would learn from their mistakes.

#lolnope, Battlefield 4 has WORST campaign ever.

Story sucks and there are so many glitches that you can't play it.

Multiplayer looks good...

exactly but i have to say i really enjoyed the campaign, was really good i thought, i bit pointless if you think bout it but i liked it, but the multiplayer now its been fixed is SO good, me and my mates cant get enough of it!! and also i urge everyone to get premium, i got it for bf3 and it was amazing and so far bf4 premium seems even better, remake maps are gorgeous and well done and improved! and the china rising maps are like BF2 and BF3 maps combined! so good!! and doing the assignments is fun.

argh, premium.....

really, it is an unnecessary waste of money. makes the game cost 100 bucks and gives the ones who dont buy it a disadvantage, as they are stuck with the crappy vanilla maps (this mostly applies to BF3, which had TERRIBLE vanilla maps, BF4 i hear actually has decent vanilla maps).

if i were to buy BF4, i guess i'd wait until the end of 2014, when they release the GOTY version that has all of the DLC, and then ditch bf4 and announce another god damn rushed sequel.

people are still playing BFBC2 as well, and even though (sadly :''''() BF2142 is pretty much dead, you know what they did in 2009 or 2010 (forgot which)? they gave the game a final update which gave EVERYONE the northern strike DLC FOR FREE. and i am pretty sure they added maps for free as well. and i think BFBC2 added some maps for free as well, however i am not sure. they sure as hell didn't have as much $20 god damn map packs though.

not to mention, it was obviously rushed, EA pushed it out the door for the CoD money.


why can't they go back to the good ol' days? the only companies who still add maps and content for free are Valve and CD Projekt Red.


so in the end, no matter how good BF4's gameplay is, it still disappoints me, so i am still on topic.

As I understand it, the game is practically swimming in bugs, so I'm sure you're not the only one.

Also, for some reason, my campaign progress never saves, yet it acknowledges achievements and dogtags.

Yeah its been doing that to me on the 360 as well. Ironically, it happens to all the games I seem to be doing pretty well in. :/

i dont think it is a waste of money because if like me and my mates your gonna get all the map packs you save money getting this and you get extra knifes, camos, double xp and other stuff so it is definitely worth it but only if your gonna get all the map packs and unlike Cod one its actually got good maps! and it not a disadvantage apart from more guns but with battlefield its what your personally good with! all got the same attachments, so no, no disadvantage and not a waste of money to me to be honest, if you dont like an 'advantage' then get the map packs, well worth it in my opinion Smile maps are top notch, they just need to sort them out :/

i'd say that CoD do a better job at map packs, simply because it ain't DAY 1 DLC/ announced as soon as the game is launched. it is downright offensive.

sure, premium saves you money, but it shouldn't cost you $100 to get the "full experience" out of BF.

map packs are a terrible idea, and leave people at a disadvantage. it splits up the community terribly, like how CoD games have their community split every year since they release a game every year. also, if your mates buy them, you are going to have to buy them as well, because it leaves you at a huge disadvantage. i shouldn't have to spend extra money to get the full experience, (for example) i bought the game for $80, the game came out a month or so ago, and i expect the full experience, BUT you are already announcing DLC for the game? terrible.

and yes, the maps are well designed, but that doesn't change anything, i shouldn't have to spend so much money to get the most out of it.


look at Killzone Shadow Fall, they don't have a generic XP system, and they release map packs, weapons etc and updates for FREE. why can't all games be like that? so would you rather have the game pull a BF4 and charge you so the game actually costs $100, or would you rather them be free, like TF2, KZ:SF, CS etc. of course the latter.


i just can't really believe this stuff is acceptable these days, EA and other publishers are walking a thin line, then step over it a couple of times, then come running back on the thin line giggling like a little girl.
