Battlefield 4 Will Be Bigger Than CoD: Ghosts

CheatCC says: "Before Battlefield 3 hit shelves in 2011, PC gamers had some pretty major expectations for the game. Call of Duty was obviously at the top of the FPS market, but Electronic Arts planned to topple Activision's flagship, and PC gamers were happy to rally behind the cause. EA's former CEO, John Riccitiello, even needled Activision during a speech at the Ad Age Digital Conference in April of 2011:" (Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Industry)

MOH was made to cater to cod players, Battlefield was developed primarily as a good game which is slowly bringing them over.

You're not serious are you?

It had loads of problems yes but didn't MW2/BlOPS1/MW3/BlOPS2 have their fair share of serious issues/bugs along with the expected poor hit detection/lag problems? BF3 is running pretty smooth these days and unfortunately you can't say the same for any of the COD titles. They're still dealing with those same problems and they always will since they don't offer dedicated servers and they continue to use that outdated engine of theirs.

They had bugs but they were at least playable. BF 3 on PC could not even connect and stay in Synch for many during the first week or so it was on the market. To their credit they patched it up, but COD at least for me has been stable enough to play and get online and play with every release. Warfighter also had a similar issue as it could not be played online at launch. Vietnam, Yes it is going back a few had serious bugs at launch.

"They had bugs but they were at least playable."

That's completely untrue. BlOPS1 had serious issues with lag in the beginning because of their little social feature and constant updating of user profiles and would even do so while a user was in-game, that it made gameplay totally unplayable and it took them MONTHS to figure out what was causing the problem and in the end it was a PC user that found the culprit and forwarded the info to Treyarch.

Both MW3 and BlOPS2 have this little feature called lag compensation and it's been f***ing gameplay ever since.

Next generation, COD has three new foes to contend with, Killzone, BF4, Destiny and all will feature dedicated servers. I don't see that P2P hosting, lag infested garbage surviving the next-gen wave but for me personally it's already dead because I know I'll never buy another COD game again.

There's no doubt that call of duty ghosts has been developed in a pressure cooker

well that aint hard cods maps are feckin tiny :p but on a serious note i dont care if its bigger or not , battlefield is the better game with much more depth to it .
I'd rather wait for a worthy sequel to Battlefield 3 instead of just Battlefield 3.5 that offers nothing but slightly better graphics. The game should be free to everyone that has Battlefield Premium considering it looks like nothing but an expansion.

Not to mention naval battles. These people seriously need to complain about something else. Battlefield 4 might not be changing a ton, but it's changing more than CoD does, yet CoD still manages to get a free pass... God, these hypocrites.
Mini0510  +   696d ago
don't buy it then. I don't sure what revolutionary things you are expecting. Evolution and some good features adding on to BF3 is good enough

I'm so tired of these retards saying BF3.5. BATTLEFIELD 3 build the foundation for the future graphics of BF so don't expect the graphics to change much in BF4. This time they're focusing on Gameplay more than anything.

Battlefield 4 Will Be Bigger Than CoD: Ghosts
YUP and just more of a reason for me to avoid BF4 and stick with Arma 3 as I prefer CORE gameplay over casual stuff.

cause it seems EA is just gonna water BF4 down so much too attract all the CASUALS who play COD.

(@Soviet Soldier ARMA 3 not 4. Arma 3 is in Alpha and Arma 4 is like 5 years away and yes Arma 3 is a WAR SIMULATOR and not some mindless shooter)

People still play COD?

I write this knowing I'll sound like a homer, but one point of contention with what was written in the article.

The writer states that 3 CoD titles consistently in the top 5 while Bf3 isn't even in the top 20.

April 22: #7 http://majornelson.com/2013...

April 8: #7 http://majornelson.com/2013...

April 1: #7 http://majornelson.com/2013...

So, yes, there are CoD games above it, but to say it's out of the top 20 is lazy journalism.

"With 4.4 million active players in 2012, the PlayStation 3 was Battlefield's most successful platform. "

PS4 is your new home Battlefield !
