I am currently playing Battlefield3 on my Playstation 3. I really want to get Battlefield 4 but am not buying it on the PS3 because the PS4 is coming out this year and I'm not planning on buying games for a console that is being replaced this year.

So here's the thing. (add stick to hornets net) Should I wait for BF4 on the PS4 or simply use the money for the PS4 to upgrade my PC to be able to play BF4?

I've always been a PC gamer but have loved playing BF3 on PS3. Nice thing about console is the once off cost of the hardware. I know the hardware becomes outdated and after a while the PC games start looking much better as the console's tech will start to fall behind. Problem with PC gaming, you need to keep upgrading bits and bobs to make the games look more attractive.... (cant have your cake and eat it)

These things considered, Which would you buy and why?

Personally I couldn't imagine playing Battlefield on anything other than a PC but then again I can't imagine playing any shooter on a controller if I could use a mouse - just feels... wrong. That having been said, I'd wait and see how the lineup will actually look before putting money towards one or the other. If the PS4 and the PC versions are identical (same amount of players etc, both get voice systems that work) then it's a very different decision than if PS4 has similar limitations to the PS3 and the PC is stuck with the battlelog voice system.

Hard to say since there has only been information about singleplayer.

But if you are used to controller, choose PS4. If vice versa, of course PC.

~£700 can see you a decent rig that'll run (BF3) maxed @60FPS. I doubt BF4 will be as taxing as BF3 either.

Plus, games on PC are waaaay cheaper. The price of running either becomes closer together if you're an avid gamer.

I can give you more than games tell me where you live.

Yeah I just like the games on consoles better than the ones on pc, and most of the ones on PC I can play them with this laptop.

Battlefield will still look better on the PC than on the PS4
You get to play 64p servers on PC
Less downtime on PC
You'll be able to play with mouse & keyboard (I personally hate to play FPS' with a controller but that's up to personal preference)

Depends since Next gen is X86X64 and Both Consoles are Running on AMD CPU's and GPU's and BF4 is being optimized for AMD Hardware, The I would say if you like Console Gaming and Most of your Friends do as well, Get the PS4 version, I will go ahead and say it will run 64players @ 1080p (or 720p with MSAA options) @ 60fps and I will say it it will look a little better on PC on ULTRA but not near the Gap we see with BF3 on Console VS PC!

OFC. But Ps4 / xbox?!? I don't know, is easier and cheaper overall.
So casual gamer's and lazy people will go console
