Not content with just the Episode VII trailer, we've also got this to look forward to.

I hadn't planned on getting a new gen console, but now I'm absolutely going to have to.

So, this should be a nice, simple, uncontroversial question: which is better, XBone or PS4?

PS4 has the better hardware and I think there are more beexers with one.

Pretty much :this:

Hardware doesn't really matter, it's pretty much the same, and you won't think you are second rate if you get an xbox. But if you want to play with beex people, then most of us went PS4 this time around. I'll certainly be getting SW Battlefront on PS4.

EA must be out skinning animals to upgrade their purse size for all the money they'll be making. No, that's Ubisoft. Anyway, these money grabbing con artists will no doubt be milking the teats raw out of this one. DLC, IAPs, character skins, weapon skins, voices, new weapons, purchase progression unlocks, maps etcetera. It'll be Battlefield style rinsing turned up to ten. Squared.

If people want to pay extra for in-game shinies then that's entirely their choice. I don't have a problem with that kind of DLC.
It's anything that gives you a gameplay advantage that I'm not keen on, and either way I'm pretty sure I'll get me money's worth out of this one as standard.

Is there some actual gameplay footage that people are excited about, or is everyone just reacting to that cutscene?

(1) the cutscene is using the game engine so it's clearly pretty.
(2) if you watch all the way to the end there are a few bits that are clearly in game footage
(3) star wars

Is this just multiplayer? If so isn't all the scene setting and attention to detail going to be a bit wasted when it's all just full of screaming elmos?

It literally says "not actual gameplay".

An in engine cutscene is barely representative of what the game will actually look like.

Well I don't want people watching a video that is not representative of a game and then getting disappointed when they discover that the game doesn't actually look like the video

Looks nice and see its PS4, Xbox One and PC, although I suspect the PS4 has the first release?

What's the player count on this anyway? 64? 32? 128?

If there's a massive player count I might be more interested. What's wrong with developers these days? It's like they are afraid to discuss player counts when they used to be all the rave. Let's have some more games like MAG.

It's because they're all too tight-arsed to provide dedicated servers, and there's a limit to how many concurrent players you can realistically support on their shonky P2P models. (Otherwise known as 'one of the players gets to be the server'.)

We've been playing a lot of GTA5 Online recently which uses the model whereby one of the players effectively hosts the server, and it's pretty damn flaky. Kind of detracts from the game a bit. (It's alright once we're on our private shard to do the heists, but the inbetweeny bits....)

IIRC for BF4 they did bring in dedicated servers for consoles? Certainly for the Battlefields we've always got our own Manx server to play on, they're really not that expensive when shared between a few people. Also with a proper server browser and list, you can start to bookmark known good servers with decent admins, rules, and so on. Hopefully this Star Wars game will have the same system.

If there's the option for maybe a few BEEX-ers to get together and rent their own Star Wars server for a few months, that could be a good answer. (One step short of that, if there are dedicated servers at all, that fixes most of the problems, and allows larger player numbers up to 64.)

That looks incredibly polished for a game that's not out for seventeen months.

Indeed. Maybe Grim got confused by the American dateline.

Same month as Fallout 4! Yay!

It's a new Battlefront. Isn't that enough?

There hasn't been one for, what, 10 years?
