Hey Battleloggers!

Just having some thoughts on how SmartGlass could be implemented on BF4 here's some ideas.

1. Controlling MAV, EOD bot. That way you can also control the player at the same time should you need to quickly move out of trouble or see something you can snipe.

2. Arming/Disarming MCOM's could have some kind of interface. Meaning you can arm them faster if your good at crossing the wires or whatever.

3. Editing loadouts in game.

4. Reintroduction of the Commander role from BF2

5. Squad mate Cam.

6. Instant VOIP switch from Squad/Team/Private

7. Guided Missile screen for jets.

8. Controller for TV guided missiles.

9. Map assist for Mobile Artillery.

Anybody got any other ideas?

Obviously some people wont have SmartGlass so to prevent it from being to unfair an advantage any of those things could take up a slot. For instance The controller for Guided Missiles would have to sacrifice Stealth or something, to Fly the MAV around you'd have to go without a spawn beacon, Jets would have to forgo beam scanning etc. But some bonuses for having SmartGlass would be only those with it could Command.

PS4 will have the Vita which is pretty equivalent, just limited to one device. I'm sure Sony would come up with something.

Also your post is invalid as you don;t even know anything about the new Xbox yet.

The Vita is a touch screen, like an iPad, not SmartGlass ?!
They did it to ruin Battlefield...

I thought you meant something futuristic like this: http://www.highsnobiety.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/glass-smart-phone-tablet-concept-0.jpg [highsnobiety.com]

You should have just said touchscreen...

I don't want to have anything but a controller to play a game. That would be obnoxious if you have to continuously switch to different controllers while In a game. I like smart glass for simply navigating Netflix or other apps.

That would be a good idea but when it comes to controlling in game content like the mav or tv missiles they connection would be a big problem. Smartglass is connected to the your xbox through a server not directly.

I can't see many exclusive features (PS4 Touchpad, SmartGlass) being utilized in cross-platform titles. Too much work for the developers for almost no benefit (Is having smartglass in BF4 going to make you buy the game?)
