Sony Computer Entertainment’s vice president of marketing John Koller recently spoke out about Battlefield 4′s server problems on the PlayStation 4.

Battlefield 4 had issues during its launch on all platforms, however the PS4 received the larger amount of problems. DICE has postponed expansion packs and future projects until the issues have been resolved.

Issues gamers are having are frame rate drops, rubber-banding, a lack of player damage, and a “desynchronized game world.”

“Let me answer this higher above ‘Battlefield 4′ because it’s not fair, I think, to focus just on that. But in general, when these kinds of situations occur we work very closely with the publisher,” Koller said.

“I’m not saying that’s happening specifically with ‘Battlefield’ but in general when there’s network issues or any issues related to gameplay we work very closely, because it reflects on the platform as well. We want it solved just like the publisher wants it solved so we generally work together.”

PS4 patch for Battlefield 4 should arrive tomorrow.

The report claims Sony is feeling the pressure to meet year-end demand in Japan and America and will release the PS4 in 2013. This report further back up a previous claim that the next-gen console won’t be available in Europe or India until 2014.

The Europe PS4 launch price could be 430 Euro, and would have the Indian price at RS 30,000.

There is another Japanese report that says the PS4 will have expanded network functionality and include social sharing features.

The PS4 will come with a DualShock 3 shaped controller with a touch pad similar to Vita, which can detect two-point multi-touch and “clicked” for an additional input button. The new controller will have improved tilt correction and feature vibration. PlayStation 4 controller will have an RGB LED light in it and a share button, which we are assuming would allow gamers to upload their experience to social networks.
