I can't wait to be excited by PC footage, then disappointed by the console footage :P It'll be interesting to see the differences between 360, next gen + PC though!

I'm still waiting for the patch where DICE breaks partnership with EA though:P

Still, no doubt I'm excited! Bring on Battlefield 4!

@ 1 No offence, but you really need to get off the computer. Sad that you sit and wait for a new article to be posted just to be "first", or whatever agenda you have.....

I don't need to reminisce about BF3 as I have over 1000 hours played to this day and will still be playing it until the release of BF4.

I don't expect too much from tomorrows reveal in multiplayer terms but I do hope they showcase what Frostbite 2 can actually do without restrictions. Better detail? Smoother textures? More Destruction? Hopefully all of the above

All the BS that has been going on in the comments sections of news articles is really making me dislike this site more and more everyday. I know I'm not the only one, I wonder if the admins even care?

@1 You've already tainted your image among everyone on these articles... There is no going back.

OT: I can't wait for BF4 to release. From watching Dice's track record on BF3 and the DLC+patches, I have confidence that BF4 will set the bar even higher.

@12 I would have agreed with you in the first few months after rent a server went up. But recently I got back into Battlefield 3 to finish all the DLC at once, & I feel DICE did a good job of bringing back official servers.

I hope Battlefield 4 has Quick Match set to Official Servers ONLY & sever browser for custom & rented servers, if so Ill be one happy son of a bitch.

Revisit 2142. That had a lot of potential in terms of weapons and vehicles.

I don't get you people. If I guy speaks kindly of a game, he's a fanboy, if he trashes a game, he's a troll. Either way, he'll get dislikes.

When he says at the end we have alot more cooking at DICE i wonder what it is Bad Company? Mirrors Edge? Need 4 Speed? So many possibilities.
