Retailer Anticipates CoD: Ghosts & Battlefield 4 on PS4/Xbox One to “Release Before Hardware”

PSLS: As we draw ever nearer to the holiday season and the PS4 and Xbox One launches, retailers are slowly selling out of their allocated Day One stock, with Amazon and GameStop both sold out already. (Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, PS4, Xbox One)

I'm not sure this matters much. By that time most people will have chosen the console that they are going with by that time. However I do wish that both these games and the consoles would release sooner rather than later. LOL

This has no relevance to next-gen hardware sales. Both games are multi-platform.

I'll get them once I get my X1, as I plan to get them digitally anyways.
Koyes  +   935d ago
Relax, man! Do you want to be disagreed to no end for mentioning the X1?
malokevi  +   935d ago
Yeah, thats why I said it ;)

When N4G disagrees, it confirms everything I believe in.
Trunkz Jr  +   934d ago
Well it sure beats being released AFTER the hardware, since many want to play it as soon as they get their system...

I remember getting Twilight Princess on Wii a week before the system actually came out. The wait was agonizing.

I hope it does I want to play this as soon as I get my PS4. It'll give me a week to practice the control scheme since the PS4 controllers will play like the PS3 controllers.

Yeah I personally don't want to sit there staring at a game I can't play........

The title pretty much says it all. Lol, of course they will.

I'm pretty sure PS4 is going to launch November 13th, because we've seen at least a couple stories indicating that.

Of course, it's just my opinion to believe those sources, but nonetheless...

That was the release date at European retailers. A man would think the US launch will be before that since Europe normally is harder to distribute to and Sony knows they love PS anyway. A man predicts 1 or 2 weeks earlier for US. A man bases this on absolutely nothing.

If you guys have premium on BF youll get into BF4 beta. Let that hold you over until the game comes out on X1/PS4.
Mikeyy  +   935d ago
Any idea when it starts because I have BF3 premium.

I'm way more hyped for battlefield 4 then ghosts but I'll be getting both because naturally your whole friends list will be on cod.
FITgamer  +   935d ago
You should update your friends list ;)

I expected as much. Often you see new system software released and available for purchase 1 to 2 weeks before the actual hardware comes out. I have no doubts that I will have a copy of BF4 sitting on my table starring me down for a good solid week waiting for my system to get released.

Both games will be awesome cant wait. Check out BF4 being played on xbox one console at Pax Australia 2013. Fast foward to the 18:13 mark.

This basically shoots down the chances of PS4 launching in October as some had hoped.
jjb1981  +   935d ago
Can't wait!!

I got my PS4/BF4 bundle on lock. cant wait to have that amazon box in front of my doorstep.

The wait won't bother me, i'll be busy with GTA V anyways.
Fergusonxplainsall  +   934d ago
I doubt any retailer has a clue as to when these systems release.

I bet Sony doesn't even know exact date of release. MS is for sure November..Can Sony make it in a slot for Late October.
Lawndart1981  +   933d ago
I would prefer to only have to make one trip to GameStop during the console launch but if this is the case (& you can arguably throw AC4 into this group) then games are already in hand when you pick up your system... I can live with that
