Battlefield 4 Proves That One Screen Is Never Enough

Posted by Sammy Barker

You'll get square eyes

If you’re the type of person that shuts off your laptop, tablet, and smartphone while you’re sitting down for a quiet session with your favourite PlayStation platform, then you’re totally doing it wrong. Battlefield 4 wants you to have every gadget that you own sitting in front of you, running maps, geolocation leaderboards, and more.

Battlelog, the first-person shooter’s upcoming companion application, will allow you to customise your loadouts on the fly, keep track of your friends, set custom mission objectives, and plot attack points. The frighteningly in-depth supplementary experience aims to make the upcoming military excursion a part of your lifestyle. If you start saluting at the cashier in your local supermarket, though, please take a break.

And this shows once again how Nintendo's thinking is so behind that they couldn't see that most people already own a second screen. As soon as the PS4 is released with all these games like BF4, Watch Dogs and The Divison, the Wii U will die once and for all.

@Koto you keep on thinking that it will survive. Dude, all the evidence points at the dead of the Wii U. Keep on thinking that...

Why not make this available for Vita?
I think its easier than make it compatible with smartphones.

@Epic
It may very well be available for Vita as well. I believe Sony will try to get devs to make second screen functionality available for Vita as well smart devices.

Added second screen functionality for the Vita would be awesome! I don't own one yet, but it would dramatically increase the chances of me buying one.

There was also a cool scene in "The Division", where some guy steered a drone, using a tablet. The Vita would be perfect for stuff like that.

Hopefully some kind of Vita support is announced, it would greatly improve the chances I buy the game. A good singleplayer campaign is more important though. BF 3 is a great multiplayer game but the campaign sucks.

@davitpr Nintendo will always live on and so will all of their consoles, the WiiU might be struggling but its fanbase and indie support and a game library 10x the size anything Sony (Virtual Console wise) has can keep it up for the number of years it needs. Never underestimate Nintendo.

@Reverend_Skeeve yeah, LBP gave us hope for 2nd screens/cross controllers, and I can't believe they haven't done it more. Let's hope that remote play, cross control and all that is actually for PS4...

Because Nintendo were the first in the world to think of using two screens.

@davitpr These show more that Nintendo was thinking forward. I personally do not own a tablet or smartphone. I would rather use an integrated second screen, than go out to buy a tablet to get full use of a game.

@davitpr Couldn't agree more, except that WiiU will not actually die. It will just continue to limp along, like the Vita is doing (though maybe a little worse than that). There are some new games coming that will boost it a little, but Nintendo will have to face facts at some point, that it will never sell enough and be the console they intended.

@NorthLightSuplx The thing is, the 3ds was very well marketed, with commercials and lots of hype though its library initially sucked. The Wii U launched almost silently, and all nintendo is doing is basically saying "Yes we will have games... eventually. In the meantime enjoy these year-late ports, older games you've already bought on their original console and on the Wii, and semi-decent exclusives." I will get a Wii U, as I will ALWAYS keep up with Smash Bros, but truth be told Nintendo seems to have just realized they've actually released the console.

@davitpr you must have your head up your butt something deep to think like that...

So now why isn't this coming to Wii U? It would make sense, that's probably why :P Looks like a great game though, still no COD, but looks pretty cool.

This is coming to PS3 and 360 though, right? I might pick it up on PS3 :P
