    Is Battlefield 4 worth getting on a PS3? Or should I get BF3 instead?

    I'm more into the multiplayer aspect of the game.
    I've heard several issues and constant freezing on BF4 online. Is this true?

    Any owners can clear it up? It would gladly help!

    hey mate, I never had any issues with freezing or lagging when playing BF 4 on the PS3 but on some maps it did feel a little bit empty because I think they were designed more for the PS4 where you can have more players. Definitely fun to play online though!

    I wouldn't recommend BF3 or BF4 on a PS3. Its not the way it was meant to be played. Has less than half the max player count the PS4/PC/Xbone version has.

    I would yeah If you can get the game on PS4, Xbone or PC then I would recommend getting BF4 on one of those but if PS3 is the only option then I would go for it.

    BF3 is out for 6.99 right now on PSN (until monday), a cheap digital version is better than anything. so try out BF3, it's more or less the same as BF4.

    BF4 has some better things but it also has frame rate issues. sometimes it can go way below 30fps. somewhere around 20fps i think. which can hinder gameplay.

    if you have PS+, then BF3 is for 4.89. cheap and it's still very popular, a lot of people online.

    BF4 is better but also more difficult and has some performance issues, so i would maybe find a better deal first.

    if you are planning to get a PS4 in the next year or so, skip BF4, otherwise, BF4 may be good if you're willing to overlook the price and the issues.

    Definitely BF3. BF4 still suffers from major issues like crashes and freezing, also the maps are way too big for 32players. BF3 has the best level design, rush, vehicle control and DLC in the series. Don't get me wrong BF4 is awesome and well worth your time on next gen but for last gen BF3 is an easy choice. Also premium is pretty cheap now.

    yes, you put it in better words. totally agree. the maps felt too large even though they were drastically reduced from the next-gen versions. also BF3 is more easy to play and more balanced when it comes to map design and vehicles. BF4 definitely is more strategic and has more weapons/equipment and imo better class customizations (everyone gets carbines which is a great addition) but you can always buy BF4 when you have a next-gen console and it's better there.

    as much as i disliked how EA handled BF4...they did patch it to the point where it's becoming better than BF3. the recent patch does wonders and i'm going to be playing this game for a long time now.

    however, i actually would advise against BF5 (at least for the time being) because we don't know if they will repeat their mistakes or not. maybe the game is soo good that we can't resist, i don't know but my initial thought is, i'm not going to go in blind like i did with BF4.

    Finally after 3 years of the community telling them their HUD sucks they implement HUD customisation. However after messing around with it, its still not how I want it to be. I cant seem to remove the flag icons and keep the 3D spotting icons.

    yeah was gonna say, it's perfect for me now. i made it opaque to begin with and then if i aim (anywhere), it goes away. that used to be one of my biggest issues. especially since we had 720p lol so everything was huge.

    The PC version of BF4 is horrible and totally broken. So, get it for PS4 as I did and it seems ok. More players are on PS4 version which is fun and as the posters here said. Don't get the PS3 version.
