GS News - EA Defends Battlefield 4, Titanfall Beta Sign-Ups Open!
EA comes to the defense of the rocky Battlefield 4 launch, beta applications for Titanfall open, and how are Respawn fixing the Xbox One controller?

ew the idea of upscaling 720p to 1080p is just gross.. Its like having someone put on blurry glasses so they can't see how shit the quality is.
EA: "We know we did things wrong but that doesn't undermine the commercial or technical achievements of the title."
Well, we know it didn't undermine their sense of humor.
"The Xbox 1 controller is getting a fix for the game.",...
Odd, is that not a fix to Titanfall rather than the controller? Otherwise how would changing the controller so it was "Less Twitchy" impact every other game developed for the controller....?
Is it unreasonable of me to expect Jess to wear a brand new shirt every day? Come on, there must be plenty of companies with good ones who'd like the free publicity.
EA: "As long as you buy our shit, we don't give a flying f**k about quality."
... and they were surprised, that they got Golden Poo, huh.
What do they mean rocky launch? There's still problems on Xbox One now in February - 3 months later. The worst ones have been solved but it still crashes and dumps you from the server on certain maps changes, sound is still missing from game for 30 seconds from the start. Great game but clearly released a month or two prematurely.
I didn't face any issues for BF4. It's still a great online game and I love playing it. Looking forward to their next installment.
And i defend EA, Battlefield 4 it's the best game of the last year.
Playing Titanfall beta, and it's perfect. This game will have a Metacritic of 99 (the Xbox One version), if someone gives a lower score, it's just a fanboy, or paid to give a low score.
In EA's view, people bought BF4 so there must not have been anything wrong with it. Why should they change? If I was them, I'd just put on my headphones and count my money.
yo jess you need to get scooby and the gang and find out what happened to flappy bird, I updated it and now I cant play the damn thing
If EA tested with more than 10k players in their beta pre-new-console-release, then something else was at play in the BF4 bugs. Software can be a fickle beast to test, especially when the errors are intermittent and not easily reproduced. I have been studying software for a few years now, so I'm curious about their software testing procedures.
I honestly don't care much about Titanfall, but I signed up anyway. I mean, it can't hurt to try the game, and this is probably my only chance to try it for free, so why not.
In the biggest thing that has happened over the past 24 hours, Jess has colourful finger nails. It looks good.
Titanfall, that's great for fanatics. I'm happy for those lunatics, but I personally don't care.
I always empathize with the game developers. It's never as easy as it seems. I think EA should allow some of their games more time in the oven when needed. That would be a good thing.
Improvements are always good.
EA screwed the pooch when they dropped BF4. The game was nowhere near ready for launch when it launched and it showed when the game crashed for just about everyone every few minutes. It wouldn't have been the major shitstorm it was if they had given it the proper time to actually be ready and given it a beta greater than 3 weeks in time. While a lot was fixed during that beta I'd say some 90%+ of the game's problems were still there at launch. The game has been much improved since launch but all of us that have been playing it since the beta will agree that it's still pretty messed up and needs a lot more work.
@xeis-net They say it's for Titanfall, but as you pointed out it's completely illogical. So it's probably just Microsoft trying to save face or trying to incite gamers to buy a new controller.
@riccithedude evolve is looking good
@sunyatanada76 dang.....what. a. idiot.
@sunyatanada76 Not creepy. At all.
She is Tifa from Final Fantasy 7.
She's from Australia, not Austria.
She speaks English with an Australian accent, not German or whatever they speak in Austria.
@Diegoctba The hate...it makes him...stronger?!
@Diegoctba The Beta isnt even out yet..
@Diegoctba "if someone gives a lower score, it's just a fanboy, or paid to give a low score."
Said the fanboy.
@guardianofhonor Just had one one of my best games, then I jumped inside a vehicle and got the dashboard bug. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF***********************************************************************************
@rupti @DABhand is right I guess, but I admit I signed up for the same reason, sorry :).
@rupti Its not for trying, it is for beta testing. This is why many PC games have so many bugs because people think beta testing is a way to play for free. You play and if you encounter bugs you report them.
This is why BF4 was buggy, out of those 10k peeps, how many reported bugs? Hardly any. So you all have only yourselves to blame if you get a beta tested game full of bugs on retail release, all because the kids can't beta test correctly.
@canuckbiker does that surprise you?
@madmatt2013 So Q3A and UT are the same with different visuals and weapons?
@DABhand I played the BF4 beta on both PS3 and PC and it worked great. The actual game still has issues to this day.
@DABhand if you expect people to work for free, you're gonna have a bad time.
@riotinto876 If you think Beta testing is working, then you are clearly deluded. Beta testing is done for a reason, but it is totaly useless when people don't actually beta test.
What is needed is publishers/developers to keep a database of people who correctly beta test so they are invited the next time for the same game or another. Anyone who did nothing but just play the game, they are removed from future beta testing.
But Lo I bet the kids will start crying about that idea, "how dare you take away my free legal gamez!"
@Rooten He compared Quake 3 Arena with Unreal Tournament as a joke towards madmatt2013.
@Rooten I didn't....would be dumb as hell anyways because I haven't played Titanfall so far...
