Battlefield 4′s Uphill Battle Against Call of Duty: Ghosts

Explosion.com's Dave Walsh looks at historical search data for both the Call of Duty and Battlefield series and details how Battlefield was once king before Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came out and the challenges that the series faces against the Call of Duty juggernaut now. (Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

As funny as that video is, it's hardly a fair comparison.

"Uphill battle"? What uphill battle?

You're deluded if you think Battlefield is 'struggling', and even more so if you think Battlefield 4 has anything to prove to Call of Duty: Ghosts - about which we currently know very little, might I add...

This article couldn't be more subjective if it tried.

I think this article it's taking sales wise. quality wise no one in thier healthymindegwould think to pit cod against bf. but they have the edge with frat boys buying 20 mil copies a year... suggestions twice a yr
csreynolds  +   502d ago
Fair point. In sales, Call of Duty does have the upper hand. But whatever the angle, this article seems to be pitting two unreleased titles against each other - assuming that Battlefield has already lost.

To say Call of Duty will topple Battlefield by default is both biased and naive, especially considering how many players have ditched Black Ops II in recent months.

CoD: Ghosts isn't due out for another 6-7 months yet...expect an article like this at least once a day until then...just like GTA5 *yawn* '137 reasons this will be the best GTA EVAR!'

yea its going to pretty boring with the same generic "5 reasons why x console is better/suck" articles
Dirtnapstor  +   502d ago
No real fight. If anyone were truely objective, they'd see that COD and BF are two different play styles. It comes down to PR...kinda like everyone was buying a 360 because the next guy had one--and that was the sole reason.
As far as Internet traffic... It's not about COD, it's about a new series. If DICE announced BFBC3, people would be crawling the web also.
I prefer BF because if the methodological play style vs the frantic. Both games have merit, both communities have proven that.

wow.. SO TIRED OF THESE STUPID A#$ ARTICLES REACHING FOR VIEWS... lets just put this to rest now.. Battlefield = better quality, more depth of experience, better overall game.... CoD = will always get more sales, more big game sites promote it.. the end... can we move on now..

Unless CoD ghosts is actually new and interesting. Then it will be quite even. CoD ghosts is activision's last chance for me.
Themba76  +   502d ago
and this is why my friends I tell every moron I meet to go back to COD as u see thats where they belong.
WeAreLegion  +   502d ago
Uphill? Battlefield continues to grow in popularity while COD declines. When people see quality, they stick to it. ;)
HeavenlySnipes  +   502d ago
BF is now mainstream and yet at the same time provides a BF experience. I think DICE succeeded in what they wanted to do . The game will probably sell over 5 mil and both consoles and additional sales as well on the next gen ones. No one expects it to sell like Halo or COD, but it will do really well
