I know there's a lot of "hate" towards call of duty, but those are impressive, very impressive numbers.
XB1_PS4  +   323d ago
Crazy numbers. 5 Million is more than the highest viewership for Game of Thrones.
black0o  +   323d ago
and 80% was there hoping to see something new a next-gen stuff ... "snif snif" and choice to go with BF4
XB1_PS4  +   323d ago
@black0o I was watching the youtube comments during the live stream, and i'm disappointed to say that a lot of people are still sucked into this black hole. They were all excited about tiny little minuscule things.

I'm with you though, on my way to battlefield 4.

Funny thing is that cod has become so popular that some people still play it even if they don't really like it anymore.

The sales numbers between BF4 and Ghost will tell us just how true that will be.
Paytaa  +   323d ago
@crazyeightz If sales were any good indication on game quality then I guess that The Last of Us is really bad compared to Modern Warfare 3.
HammadTheBeast  +   323d ago
Pretty sure its not 5 million at the same time, just individuals who logged in.
scissor_runner  +   322d ago
paytaa well mw is more of a game than the last of us. its called replay value, tlou doesnt really have that, its even traded in more. now if i watched video game movies more then yeah tlou moive might be better yet this is video gaming not watching.

i dont even like cod.or mw yet even i can see why they are infact better than70% of the games out.

Meant the agree button dude

The hate that is towards CoD numbers in the thousands that frequent message boards and crap on COD. It may seem like there is a lot of hate towards the series because the boards are flooded with troll comments. But in reality the few thousand haters pale in comparison with how many millions are still supporting the franchise.
SonyKong64  +   323d ago
it's true, their millions of easily influenced fad consumers that always go with the flow.

I'd kill to see how many COD players have iPhones lol, I'm betting it would again be millions upon millions of brainwashed consumer zombies..
scissor_runner  +   322d ago
online fps is not a fad.... its just that cod does it better for more people.map.and.game design is king inthat realm.
Mkai28  +   323d ago
People shouldn't see COD being hated on the Internet and automaticly assume that the majority thinks that it's utter garbage.. The Internet/forums/fanboys is the back yard, outside the Internet is the world.
0neShot  +   323d ago
The 5 million actualy include the haters who can really can't let go of Call of Duty.
ape007  +   323d ago

If Ghosts came out in 2010 or 2011, it would've been awesome. Too little too late IMO.
KaMaHKaZiE  +   323d ago
Same thing different year its sad that people even think about purchasing anything from this crap franchise. I was a little excited to see what was gonna change when it was announced way back when the x1 was announced talking about change and what not. A new game mode and being able to peek around corners does nit justify shat, BF has been better for years. BF all the way.
edonus  +   323d ago
But its going to have dedicated servers on XBOX ONE..... That is big. I dont even like COD but I am just compelled to give them a try again. Same with Madden and NBA2k.

Even though I am sure BF is going to have dedicated servers too I always liked CODs guns selection and customization better, but BF had way better gameplay. But with dedicated servers it may really even out.

So to COD I say you have a chance at a new customer "impress me".
crazyeightz  +   323d ago
BF3 sucked ass what are you talking about it has been better for years?
voodoogts  +   323d ago
People who usually hate on COD and choose BF instead usually suck at the game. Lol
XB1_PS4  +   323d ago
I was ranked under 1000 (Weekly) in COD Black Ops for a while. It's an easy game. If you suck at COD, you suck at all FPS's, basically. I find BF3 to be way harder, and that's why I like it. Challenge.
claterz  +   323d ago
BF3 is just as easy as CoD IMO. If you want more of a challenge from CoD you should give League Play a go.

Despite what people on the internet say, CoD isn't going anywhere anytime soon and BF isn't changing that. Lots of CoD players just find BF boring and prefer the arcade, fast paced style of gameplay. Also you guys fail to realize that not everyone buying Ghosts has been playing CoD since 2007 like a lot of us on here. Remember the feeling of being addicted to CoD4? well that's probably how newcomers to the franchise feel right now. If you go back and play CoD4 you'll find that it suffers from exactly the same problems as the new games do (lag, bad spawns, camping etc). It's just that back then it was something new so those things didn't matter that much.

I enjoy both (BF and CoD), and they both have their strengths and weaknesses. Must admit I don't understand the constant hate towards CoD though, each game gets the same level of enhancements as most big franchises this gen..

sure. i remember MW2 just running aroudn with m16a get jet drop, ac130 and nuke.. and doing this constantly with ease.

The game is a cakewalk. Its fast and easy, and that tailors to a lot of people
ZBlacktt  +   323d ago
People who use hacks,glitches,modded controllers and boost play small made maps.

I don't understand what it is that people want when they claim to want "something different"... just about every game with a sequel usually consist of slightly updated graphics and a few new modes or maps/stages/weapons. if you wanted to play something completely different than you would be buying a completely different game.
ceedubya9  +   323d ago
Agreed. Change can be good, but change for the sake of change doesn't make sense when you have a successful formula. Call of Duty games have been, at the core, the same game every year with very minimal changes.

It is understandable that some fatigue has set in for some after each release, but the games are still the top sellers every year. Obviously, the vast majority still finds the series to be fun despite the complaints of the vocal minority on the internet.
DaGR8JIBRALTAR  +   323d ago
but this is "next-gen"...are we NOT suppose to expect more?
optimus  +   322d ago
from what i can tell you ARE getting more...it's bigger in scope and story, the graphics are better, more weapons, more levels...if you want it to look and feel like a movie then go see an actual movie.
airgangstarr  +   323d ago
theres about 3.5 million of the 5 will be on xbox one atleast
JetsFool3500  +   323d ago
Doesn't mean anything I was watching just to see what the competition is bringing to the table
ZBlacktt  +   323d ago
And 4.2 million of them go yep, still looks like the same thing.
BlingBlaine  +   323d ago
BF4 for me, then Planetside 2 for a looong time.
windblowsagain  +   323d ago
I've tried most of the COD.

They are ok in short bursts, but should not be compared to BF2/3/4. (love vietnam also)

They have huge maps and tons of vehicles, it's all out war.

They both have their place, imo Blackops1/2 are the best ones, with sp/mp/zombies.

But i'll take alook at this.

I'll be getting premium BF4 for either PC or PS4 regardless.
cunnilumpkin  +   323d ago
i'll actually probably get it on steam at some point, all my work friends like it so its fun to get on and play with them from time to time

that said, this does not look impressive at all

it doesn't even look close to as good as the pc version of mw2, mw3, BO1, BO2 on pc all look far better than this ghost gameplay

I am assuming its because they are only showing next gen console footage, and they did say the pc version will look far better than either ps4 or xbox1 versions

it damn well better, cause everything shown so far looks worse than the pc versions I have been playing for the last 5 years
csreynolds  +   323d ago
And I bloody missed it. The irony.

Well, whatever your feelings towards Call of Duty, the audience is clearly there. Five million people... that's quite a number.
