EA and DICE Announce February as Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month

Battlefield 4 is an amazing game when its working, unfortunately multiplayer has been severely broken for a majority of its players. Battlefield 4 has had its fair share of hiccups since its launch in October and with no end in sight. However EA and Dice seem to be getting their priorities straight and are working on major fixes and damage control. As a thank you for players patience the developer announced today on their blog that February will be Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month. Dice will be running everything from double XP weekends, FREE equipment unlocks and FREE battlepacks everyday you log in during the month long event. Check out the link below for more information and add me on Origin as I will definitely be playing some Battlefield during the event.

Sony Announces Playstation Now, Will Be Streaming Playstation Games To Your PS3, PS4, Tablet and Smartphone Soon.

PlayStation-Now

Today at CES (the Consumer Electronics Show), Sony announced how they are planning to utilize the cloud streaming service Gaikai that they purchased previously. They will be creating what they are calling Playstation Now, and it will allow streaming of Playstation games across all sorts of mediums, starting obviously with the PS3, Vita and PS4 game systems, but also going on to be used on tablets, smartphones and even Sony’s own line of Bravia TV’s. This new game streaming will be tied in with Sony’s new IPTV Service that they announced at CES as well

Sony has stated that this new streaming service will be either rental or subscription based and that PSN features like trophies, online multiplayer and messages will be making their way to it as well, even when you are on the go. This is starting to look like a very promising idea from Sony and would allow PS4 users access to the back catalog of PS3 games that they may have missed. The idea that this may end up being a “Netflix” for games is a very interesting idea, especially when we start talking about streaming and playing these games with just a Bravia TV.

Sony has announced that they will be having a PS3 beta for this service towards the end of January, followed by a larger US rollout in the summer. If you are interested in being a part of the beta, you can head over to Sony’s website Here and signup for more info.

We will be keeping an eye on this story, but so far, this is looking like a very promising idea from Sony and personally, I am very excited to see how this turns out.
