DICE explains state of Battlefield 4 "netcode issues"

@Suarez07
There are probably multiple people to blame but EA did not make the game. DICE did. I know people don't want to blame them because they like them better than EA but the craftsman is responsible for his work.

DICE made the game; they cannot be blameless. Maybe EA played a part but DICE put their signature on this product so they gotta take the blame also.

But that doesn't necessarily mean that someone dislikes gay people. That could also mean that some people just dislike playing characters who are totally different to themselves.
With all due respect I am not buying this. People are happy playing a space marine, an alien, a spiky haired manga dude, a katamari etc but playing someone with a different sexuality is just a bridge too far is it?

As much as I would love to see this I think there are quite a few other disenfranchised minorities that are probably ahead in the queue. Considering that AAA games haven't really progressed beyond white, heterosexual males there is still a lot of work to be done.

Wouldn't you try to get rid of masses of unsellable stock on the back of microsofts titanfall squeal, even if you had to take a hit on your bottom line? They probably know its their last chance to.
I also thought that but then the discount stock is a specialized bundle so...

Early adopters should be majorly pissed off - they should all be getting Titanfall for free to make up for being penalised for supporting the platform. We all understand console prices go down over time, but a 70+ drop (including the game) in the console's third month is insane.
To be fair, anyone who still bought an Xbone at launch after everything that's happened is probably such a huge MS fan that this price drop betrayal won't really bother them.

@darth_paul
Why would MS offer early adopters any refund?
Any early adopter knows it is paying premium for the privilige of being able to play a new console before the vast majority.
Because pissing off your early adopter fans is not a smart thing to do.

Thanks for the info. For the record I play it on PS3 so I find it works quite well. It's not full fat MTG but it's enough.

Maybe I'll check those other games out if they run on a platform I have.

Battlefield 4: disaster report

IvorB

4 years ago

distracting many from the real issue; that the game barely works. In my own first few days with Battlefield 4 on PS4, I had my campaign save corrupted (no great shame), my online stats reset three times, was regularly unable to join matches, was not able to join friends and when I did finally manage to find a game, was unceremoniously booted back to the dashboard on almost every occasion. I was not alone.

Let's not underestimate the scale. Battlefield 4 is huge. When something this colossal collapses in on itself and millions and millions of people, it's not just that they can't play the game - they're actively attacked by it as it corrupts save files or deletes their progress (and time, a far more precious commodity than both cash or XP). That's the kind of nightmare that probably could have justified a product recall. It's that bad.
Eurogamer score = 8/10

Virgin Media is Sony's PlayStation 4 UK ISP partner

IvorB

5 years ago

This sounds like a load of bullsh*t to me and seems like some marketing dollars changed hands here. There is no way Virgin are going to set aside bandwidth for PS4 traffic from customers. I hope DF will do a thorough investigation of what tangible difference this actually makes to connection speed/bandwidth. What about 'net neutrality? What of all the other bandwidth-heavy services that will cry foul if this is actually the case?
