Battlefield 4?s second screen feature, Battlescreen is exclusive to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Battlelog assistant producer Jesper Nielsen confirmed with Engadget that the new feature won’t be available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 due to the system being entirely web-based.
“Battlelog is powered by the web, and that has a lot of implications. There are a lot of different things you can do, things you can do faster, rather than building stuff in native code,” Nielsen said.
“It’s going to be a lot easier for us to actually update things from the in-game Battlelog than would otherwise be the case. You’d have to do patches normally; here we can actually do things almost by the flick of a finger.”
Nielsen also said that EA is still playing around with Battlelog and will continue to adjust it both now and in the future once players get their hands on it.
“To be frank, it will stand its real test once we get it out to the players and see how they use it, both when they play and don’t play. That will teach us a lot and help us innovate even more in this field,” he said.
“We don’t have the answers to all the questions in this space yet, so it’s definitely a bit of an experiment, but we’re very confident with some of the steps we’ve taken to provide a truly meaningful and valuable second-screen experience.”
Battlefield 4 is out this October on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The next gen version has still to be dated.
