EA: 'No Other Shooter Does What Battlefield Does'

IGN:EA explains how Battlefield stands out among other first-person shooters, and how it stays fresh. (Battlefield 4, Culture, Frank Gibeau)

allformats  +   638d ago
Yeah whatever.

Not hating on Battlefield at all, but there are shooters that do things Battlefield does not, so EA's point is moot.

i dont care what they say, i'm getting Killzone: Shadow Fall and Mercenaries as FPS! This is my favorite FPS series
GiggMan  +   638d ago
Honestly I'm getting Shadow Fall because it's the only FPS I don't have to worry about timed exclusive content and the game is being made with one system in mind.

None of the other shooters out there can say that...
USMC_POLICE  +   638d ago
Get both lol I am
Utalkin2me  +   638d ago
And i know one thing BF4 and COD ghost will have in common. Timed exclusive content to MS. Which is why i will be passing on both this time as much as i hate to say it. I didnt mind not picking COD up in the past, cause i had BF and BC to play.

But i will be speaking with my wallet and they will not receive a 100+ dollars from me.
GameCents  +   638d ago
Halo 5 can say that. And Sunset Overdrive.
brish  +   638d ago
What does Battlefield do that other shooters don't do?

Seriously!
BattleReach  +   638d ago
Super awesome extreme deluxe destruction lol.
T3AMRR  +   638d ago

You say that now..
but once I nail you in BF4, with a 720 noscope Temper Shot, you'll forget all about objectives and chase me around the map begging me to teach you.

"Not hating on Battlefield at all, but there are shooters that do things Battlefield does not, so EA's point is moot."

Not really moot, because he specifies what he's talking about, infantry + vehicles + large maps with lots of destructibility.
3-4-5  +   635d ago
no...I've played most of the decent to good shooters over the past 15 years.

BF definitely does stuff other FPS games don't do.
Kanzes  +   638d ago
I hope BF4 will finally dethrone COD this year
allformats  +   638d ago
Battlefield 4 will never "dethrone" COD. BF4 will have its own "win", and so too will Call of Duty.
famoussasjohn  +   638d ago
Why can't they co-exist? I play both and enjoy them for what they are. Nothing really compares to some of the awesome BF moments though.

They have to, because we Battlefield players do not want COD players in our game who do not like using Teamwork and are just K/D whores.
gedapeleda  +   638d ago
@ Trunkz That's what BF looks like on consoles.
Very rarely something sparks up. It's all running and guning on bigger maps.
famoussasjohn  +   638d ago
Trunkz Jr - K/D doesn't really matter. I have a 2.15K/D in BF3, played a shit ton of conquest because Rush was filled with idiots and I hated trying to lone wolf it and plant/defend the MCOMS myself.
Sizzon  +   638d ago
I love DICE, but not so much EA.

Battlefield is awesome, but the Half-Life series is the best fps franchise in my opinion.

Valve simply makes amazing FPS'es, CS, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal (well first person view).

Kanzes  +   638d ago
I agree, but unfortunately Gabe can't count to three
Sizzon  +   638d ago
Yep, Half-Life 3 needs to be announced along with Team Fortress 3 or Left 4 Dead 3! :)
RedDeadLB  +   638d ago
@Sizzon the only "3" literally everybody is interested in is Half-Life 3. Every other game should come down the road, but for crying out loud, HL3 should come first!
-Mika-  +   638d ago
Im happy that it doesn't. I don't like playing fps games that have large maps. That why I prefer games like COD and KZ3. I love non-stop action and I don't want to be getting sniped from some loser hiding in a bush 50 feet away from me. It not fun.
saf100792  +   638d ago
Lmao well at least you admit why. Some people would rather just say battlefield sucks cod is better which just starts a flame war. I will say that there are quite a few maps on bf3 that are non-stop action. Caspian Border and the likes just arent them lol
MysticStrummer  +   638d ago
That's cool.

I prefer bigger maps by a mile. My favorite online shooters this generation were MAG, Warhawk, and Battlefield 3, and right now I can't wait for Planetside 2 on PS4.

venom06  +   638d ago
why the HELL is IGN always on the "Battlefield stay fresh" crap, when CoD GHOST is basically the "next gen version" of MW4 (with a name change)... its STILL using modern weapons and still using the same (slight upgraded) engine from MW3... CoD is what "needs to stay fresh".. god, i HATE that CoD fanboy site IGN...

Where is the IA Fish?
Funnymonkey013  +   638d ago
I think it's BS what they r saying there's no such thing as what a game cant do as what BF4 can do. Yes it's really in amazing game but its stupid saying no other shooters can't do what BF can do if put the effort in it.
Hydralysk  +   638d ago
One of these days they'll get through all these Battlefields and Battlefronts, and they'll finally make a sequel to Battlezone. Then I'll start caring.

ARMA 2 on a much larger scale and with a far better array of weapons and vehicles with better 3d models and more realistic handling with an array of mods offering everything from zombies to WW2 without the fear of being nickel and dimed for every bit of content.
mwjw696  +   638d ago
Yea the game runs and plays like shit... If I want to be bored in my military shooter like I am in real life i'll give arma a try. Its a shit game with a fantastic mod. #DealWithIt
ala_767  +   638d ago
I hated BF3 on PS3.... They allowed to buy kits to unlock all stuffs for $49.99!!! Hope BF4 wins my heart
famoussasjohn  +   638d ago
You apparently haven't been accustomed to microtransactions then. BF4 will guaranteed have them (especially since EA was praising microtransactions a few months ago), especially those unlock all microtransaction. They even had those in Battlefield Bad Company 2.
#13.1 (Edited 638d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
ala_767  +   638d ago
They should charge for DLC or special weapons/vehicles etc thats okay. But they are selling kits which is an insult to those who worked hard to unlock the stuffs
famoussasjohn  +   638d ago
ala_767 - What they should be doing and what they are doing is subjective. I don't mind it really, some people just don't have the time to put in the effort of unlocking each and every gun. If they offered special weapons or vehicles via microtransaction, how the hell is that even remotely fair?
CrimsonStar  +   638d ago
EA is one of the most greedy companies ever .

Off topic: yup they're doing micro transactions with PVZ too . I hate EA ruining one game at a time .
mwjw696  +   638d ago
They did not release the unlock kits till 4-6 months after the game came out. If you want to bitch that someone paid for a gun you might want to avoid the future, your gonna see a lot more of it.
Shungin12  +   638d ago
warhawk was amazing and mag too, Iwould love a sequel from both of them. Starhawk is a spiritual successor so I don't count that apart of warhawk
cell989  +   637d ago
cant wait for Battlefield 4!! and Killzone SF
t3gamenews  +   635d ago
ea says no other shooter does what battlefield does?
call of duty atleast releases on nintendo consoles & handhelds, can battlefield do that?
only thing i see battle field dong is graphical stuff.
