Hi, i am very sure that battlefield 4 support 1080p on a full HD TV.

Have checked my settings under display settings to make sure 1080p was check, and TV is a full HD TV supporting up to 1080p, HDMI cable support full HD too.

But i just cant get it to work in 1080p, whenever the game boots, it will adjust to maximum 720p. if i uncheck display setting 720p it will run 572p instead of 1080i or 1080p.

Anyone can help me and tell me what is wrong ?

BF4 on PS4 is 900p upscaled to 1080p, on Xbox One it's 720p upscaled to 1080p. On PS3 and Xbox 360 the game is 720p maximum with upscaling to 1080p.

Make sure your PS3 and HDTV settings are set to either "just scan" or "use source resolution". This will take the resolution from your PS3 (1080p) and run it onto your HDTV.

How do I set that up on the ps3 coz I'm having the same issue. 720p every time I run bf4. I've been messing with this ever since I bought my HDMI just for bf4. I've display reset several times(held power button till it beeps) I'd try to play games that run in 1080p and it's works flawlessly "wipeout HD, worms armageden, ect" they all show 1080p now when I play games ikno only go as far as 720p like "Bf bad company 2, bf3, mvc3, splinter cell blacklist, ect " all display 720 like they should. I'm just upset the box on bf4 says 1080p but I'm not able to get that.. I have fairly new HDTV as well. Toshiba 42" 1080p in which I've checked all the menu options rigorously... Some1help

Yeah I dont understand why the game case says 1080p but for all ive tried, including the above, and sevral other suggestions from posts, I cant get it to stay on 1080p...my tv always switches back to 720, but plays madden and other games in 1080 just fine....this is BAFFLING!!

It might have to do with your tv. My tv(Samsung 55" LED) has a setting called "game mode" that makes it run at 720p and that's fine for me. I've had game mode turned off and the graphics were better but I think it causes the graphics to seem slower. You're not missing much really. I'll check mine next time I play and see if it displays 1080p when I turn game mode off

I have a 47'' toshiba LED and in the booklet that came with it, it says it supports 1080p and 1080i and is hdcp ready....it has that gaming mode too, but i dont think that has anything to do with HD. I tried the game without it on, and it did run different, but im pretty sure my tv was still in 720...ill try it with that gaming mode off, dont think thats it though...
