Battlefield 4 Battlescreen map not included on PS3 or 360: As expected..

August 8, 2013

To use Battlescreen features you will have to wait for Next-gen.
Jesper Nielsen stated that this will work on PC and next-gen consoles.
So PS3 and Xbox360 users are out of luck.

To quote:

Battlelog for Battlefield 4 will be compatible with all versions of the game, but the system’s new Battlemap feature will not be compatible with the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

Battlemap is a new second-screen service that lets players keep track of the action via a full radar-enabled overhead map on a smart device or nearby computer.

Battlelog assistant producer Jesper Nielsen has told Engadget that the feature will only work with PC and next-gen versions of the game on PS4 and Xbox One.

“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.”

Nielson also explained that Battlelog will this time around be fully web-based, allowing DICE to implement updates more rapidly.

“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,” he said.

EA flaunted the new Battlelog in a recent video.
