Star Wars: Battlefront PlayStation 4 PS4

We pondered recently whether the PlayStation 3 was on its last legs, and while it's not over until Kaz Hirai says so, we're starting to see third-party publishers skip the faithful format. Hot on the heels of Dragon Quest Heroes and Dying Light, the hotly anticipated Star Wars: Battlefront is the latest game to gloss over a last-gen release.

When asked about platforms on Twitter, an EA representative said that the DICE developed escapade will be available "holiday 2015 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC". This is obviously bad news for those yet to upgrade, but it's exciting for next-gen owners, as it means that the title should push the hardware, er, harder.

Do you think that this forthcoming foray will have the force, or are you a rebel that couldn't care less? Come up with some better Star Wars puns in the comments section, because they're definitely not this author's forte.
