PS3 gamers face a difficult decision this October, on whether to pick up the highly impressive Battlefield 4 straight away at launch, or wait for the significantly better Battlefield 4 on PS4 which will come with 64 player support for the first time. Now there may be another reason to wait for the next-gen version instead as DICE are apparently considering the addition of keyboard and mouse support on console as well.
While the option of having keyboard and mouse on the PS4 version of Battlefield 4 would be amazing in our opinion, the big debate obviously will be on whether playing with keyboard and mouse would offer a significant advantage, from those playing with a DualShock4 controller.
We have heard conflicting feedback from those who say that keyboard and mouse offers greater precision than controllers, but then again we’ve also heard from gamers who say that they are more than capable of holding their own against keyboard and mouse players when using a controller also.
If DICE were to at least give the option, we wonder if they would also consider making some Battlefield 4 servers distinguishable from those who are playing on keyboard and mouse as opposed to controller. This would appear to be the most logical way to execute this plan, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
A DICE interview by AusGamers confirms that it is definitely a possibility, so if you are a Battlefield veteran on console – let us know your thoughts on this potential outcome. Would you prefer to use keyboard and mouse on Battlefield 4, having previously been used to a similar setup on games like Counter-Strike 1.6?
Do you agree with the notion that keyboard and mouse offers an advantage over controller or not?
