And yet COD will still sell more copies... What a stupid world we live in.

In terms of technology, we all know Battlefield is the better game. IMO, it also has the better gameplay... and is overall the better game... But cod is like the new madden, people will buy it every year without question. Unfortunately, Cod will probably have more sales this year.

abzdine1756d ago

i dont buy any of these.. the king of FPS is Killzone for me. and i cannot get happier with 2 KZ coming out soon

Themba761756d ago

I mean what the heck can cod bring new to the table this year a freakin mutt really? yet in BF4 we get 64 players on console and 60fps. and cod gets a dog you tell me whats better.

AceBlazer131756d ago

Yh but the cod franchise has been dying lately it's still big but I think around mw3 the franchise began to decline a bit now with cod ghosts u aren't even hearing much hype compared to previous title not to mention what little hype it has is being overshadowed by the hype for next gen consoles and games like gta v,bf 4,watch dogs etc it is gonna struggle this time around.the franchise is dying slowly but surely.

andremasonbaba1756d ago

every year YOU!! people say battlefield will do this bf will do that but every year call of duty is the most played game over psn and xbox live check the stats dice sheeps

csreynolds1756d ago


Where are your stats? Saying something doesn't automatically make it true...

Johnsonparts231756d ago

@Themba76 so you're using a feature that COD has had since forever to say BF is better? 60fps should've come a long time ago for BF. What other new and revolutionary things is BF doing that it hasn't done before? a skyscraper falls down? ok........ Not that COD is doing anything either, but come on.

But look at it this way. Both companies have employees who need he job in order to supply their families. Look at all the death threats these people have been getting. Do yo all really rather think its better for the company to shut down, firing many workers and increase unemployment than keeping the company successful without buying their product but to leave it for other consumers to enjoy? When did it start that people enjoying the games they want to get is stupid?

Here we go again with the "woe is the developers" and "oh the poor Devs", like these dudes are struggling just the same as we are lol. I'm pretty sure a lot of them are making more than double the amount of the average citizen. Anyway, the sooner COD dies, the better the FPS genre will be. Maybe then we can finally get some innovation & real competition in the genre. With COD out the way, it will be a real interesting and competitive market with it's "cancer" being dealt with.

@staticdash22 1. I bet you wouldn't be complaining of you had the job. They were lucky, quit hating and pay some attention to yourself and wonder why aren't you in their shoes if its so easy. me, with cod out of the way, there will be a new franchise to take it's place. People always like to take down the most successful company to make themselves feel better. People are already hating EA. wait until bf makes one mistake and people are going to hate on it.

C-Thunder1756d ago

That won't always be true. If this game doesn't step it up significantly, expect the next COD to do poorly. New gen will change opinions, if it playsliketheold ones and doesn't do something that feels next gen, it will fail.

glennco1756d ago

It is true for Hollywood, truer than ever.

Mini05101756d ago

LOL you are definitely smart.
People buy whatever the f they want. Apparently it's stupid.

and BF4 might match cod sales this time.

Johnsonparts231756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

@csreynolds Here's for 2012, where two COD's are on top.

And here's the most recent numbers by month. This is just on Live. As you can see, It's not even close and hasn't been since the games came out. Again, two CODs are above BF. And it'll happen again this year.

Ive got the PS4/BF4 PS Plus bundle but im not excited to play BF4.Think im going to be on KZ SF more than either.I do intend on trying each FPS though.But I really just want MGSV.Lauch titles alyways floeded with FPS fillers.

dcj05241756d ago

Metal Gear Solid V and Battlefield 4 are my most anticapated games.

OrangePowerz1756d ago

I enjoy both franchises but it`s very unlikely that BF will steal a lot of the sales from Ghosts. CoD does have a focus on mainstream from launching the game very quick with limited loading screens, company logos etc. to being able to finish a match in 5-10 minutes over BF MP games that can take a lot longer.

Lawndart19811756d ago

I'm a relatively recent convert to the BF series from CoD and it took awhile to get used to the completely different game play styles between the two franchises. But thats a valid point about the match length... i was used to the run and gun style of the shorter CoD natches and was very surprised by the complexity and length of a BF match.. . Youre really in a fight and your team needs a plan if they want to win.

Both games will sell very well at launch, I've got both preordered but at the moment I see me spending more time on BF4

vallencer1756d ago

I don't know if they will end up selling more but I believe it will be the better game. When the only argument COD had against battlefield was that it played in 60FPS. That is now obsolete because battlefield, at least on the next gen and pc, runs at 60FPS at 720p I don't think COD has any legs to stand on anymore.

T21756d ago

Every time I think thats the end of it some COD kid comes out and says bf is too boring... He wants 50 kills not 20 or 100 kills not 50 ... COD is fps for kids with ADD , no doubt but there are millions of them apparently
