BF4 will not work on new Xbox ?

According to many new advertisements of where you can pre-order BF4 it says that you will not be able to play on the next gen consoles .

Thoughts ?

BTW it says this everywhere "The item will not work with any next version of the hardware."

Its bad enough Madden 2013 doesnt have a demo anymore for the Xbox even though there are weblinks all over the place.

Anyone else seeing EA going downhill on a rocket sled ?

I'm thinking that if they didn't want to put the resources in to developing for two different consoles then it's a shrewd move on their part to make the game for the older consoles.  It's not going to be a surprise that the old console sales will far outweigh the new console version sales when it's released.  In a year I would expect that they will be releasing for new consoles only.

But Xbox has always made their systems backwards compatible. Has nothing to do with them making it for two consoles.

I mean if this is pointing the way towards the next xbox not to be backwards compatible then its going to be a long while before I get one.

I think it's more than likely not going to be backwards compatible (at least not at first, and if it is, there might be a number of bugs like the backwards-compatible games for the 360)
