Will it be enough to see off Battlefield this year?
I don't doubt that COD ghosts will sell more copies just by it's larger fanbase alone, but battlefield looks like the better game.
You cannot say that because we did not see Ghosts multiplayer yet. If it sucks then you can say that Battlefield 4 looks like the better game.
Well if history is any indicator we know how cod mp will look. Reskinned maps Reskinned guns More perks Dynamic maps (kz2 did this back in 2009) Smart fish AI And a DoG
"You're not even old enough to play COD "awesomeabe1998". Or battlefield.
Yes, well it caters to your (assumed) age group. Actually a bit lower. I started BF2 when I was 16, CoD is targeted for 10+.
I am 15 so I know what the hell i can and cannot play. This is actually the first game that CoD changes a little bit.
@xReDeMpTiOnx: Reskinned maps? What like Nuketown and Firing Range? Which are DLC maps?
im actually looking forward to both games i find them both fun but one games alot faster paced then the another so thats what makes cod fun :P
and they used fired range yet again on BO2 dlc which its called studio now :( i was SOOOOOO disappointed man! no COD for me this year, i will play battlefiel4 cause they still using quake engine even tho they say its a new engine which its not, just upgraded!!
Everyone go watch blurre lines unrated! Ull thank me.
I wonder how many players the mp is?
512 All in a cramped map about 50 meters in area. Pure hell.
dedicated servers or GTFO!!! seriously... sure it will sell more.. it's easy and a brain dead monkey can play it with no problem.. but with BF4 running @ 60FPS and have more people to kill, it's lead will not what it's been in the past. plus battlefield has always been the better all out war experience.. but we all know CoD has that 1 major ACE of spade card up their sleeves, their fanboy reviewers @ IGN and KOTAKU, etc. So they really have nothing to worry about.
Battlefield has always been the better game in my opinion!!
Cod multiplayer owns battlefield on every release. You can whine about user base all you like but if something is truly better it will do better.
Not really. CoD has been frustratingly garbo since MW2. The maps are complete and utter shit. There is no going around that. Weapons are 2-3 bullets to kill, there is no recoil, snipers have 0 sway or recoil, LMG's are a joke, camping is encouraged, kill stealing is encouraged, overpowered perk combos are necessary to compete, maps are trash, the community is the worst in gaming, lag is everywhere, no dedicated servers, constant disconnects, half the weapons are useless, a quarter are OP, explosives spam ftw. I can go on. CoD only sells well because it caters to the lowest common denominator. It doesn't sell because it's a good game, it sells because people can always play with friends, its like sports or a movie, an activity to do with friends. Overall, trash game since MW2.
Wtf have you been smoking? bf3 mp destroys cods mp in every conceivable way....well that's my opinion anyway.
I'm a Battlefield player. However, I'm hoping Ghosts pulls this series out of the mud, or creates its own identity from the COD line of games...I am leery.
Why does everyone compare BF4 to CoD: Ghost? They're two different games. Ghost is more fast paced up close while BF4 is massive maps and far more people to kill. Just different games IMO and shouldn't be compared that much.
You're right man, Isn't it great that we have the diversity between the two games. Because I reckon most of the people who play shooters always eventually end up owning both a copy of Cod and BF. So, Its nice that we have the option to go to a different type of shooter when we get a bit exhausted with one we're playing.Then we're refreshed and things don't get too repetitive.
