This is the first I've heard of this lol.. wow EA looked beyond desperate and possessive with that question sheet. Why on Earth would they feel the need to stoop so low is beyond me.. let how good the game is do the talking.

The Biggest problem EA faces Right Now:

Can they make enough BF4 disc to satisfy the millions (Using The Rock's voice) "and Millions of fans worldwide" that are gonna buy BF4 day1 and 2!

COD has it's fans but right now BF4 is ALL the rage cause they didn't just copy n paste like COD they went out and made improvements and then added all kinds of NEW stuff.

BF4 I can't wait to blow Stuff up and have it change the map.

Battlefield since 1942!

See I was always a huge BF fan, but once it stopped after BF2 on PC I switched to consoles and CoD was game of choice.

With that said I got extremely bored after MW2 -- also the fact that I came back PC gaming also helped, but still I bought Black Ops and that was fun for a while but the mindless running and gunning and the CoD formula is dying.

There are a lot of CoD fans out there, and I don't get mad that they play it, but I know they are missing out on a hell of an experience with BF, on PC at least.

Meh, I'm sick of military shooters as it is. Both of these games will continue to be milked into oblivion.

Sick of Military shooters?

Well go buy a PC and play:

Planetside 2
Hawken
Chivalry Medieval Warfare
Mechwarrior Online
Firefall
Tribes:Ascend
STALKER Series

just to name a few of great shooter that are not Modern Military

Why people feel the need to compare these two games is beyond me!

Battlefield....Think then Shoot
COD............Shoot then Think

^Truth

Battlefield is much better than what COD would ever be. EA shouldn't be afraid, they have won the battle against COD, one with Titanfall and one one Battlefield.

COD......Shoot DONT think
gaelic_laoch  +   363d ago

They are both just as arcadey and bad as the other

Battlefield

How people on forums and comments sections describe it

"tactical shooter that needs teamwork"

How it really is...

"Give me the jet noob"
*why is that guy trying to teamkill me?*
*why do team mates not revive, throw ammo or repair?!*
"lol my K/D is 4.5 noob"
*why is my team sitting back when we only have 1 flag?*
*why did I get kicked for getting 70 kills?*

Meanwhile in Arma II/III...

this article is STUPID.. why the hell would you bring up something from 2 years ago when talking about a game that's coming out now. if the game is good, then its good.. but bring up something that happened 2 years ago and say that it will something to do with the results of BF4 is plain idiotic.. this dumb-ass author is clearly fishing for some reason for the greatness that is BF4 to do bad... the fact that this is 2 yrs later and 60FPS and 64 man servers will do well for the Battlefield franchise.

A lot of people gave up on BF3 after their beta. It was full of glitches like hiding under the floors. I told all my friends that BF3 would be better than COD. I went out and got a copy of BF3 and was so disappointed. Battlefield 3 sucked big time. So I'll stick with the COD franchise. I understand that some of you like going for the underdog. But in this situation I'll stick with the top dog like most people. COD is already starting to crush BF4 in preorder sales....just as usual.

EA titanfall and battlefield 4 = win
With titanfall now its like EA has its own cod now
Einhert  +   363d ago
I support neither of them.

EA could win me back if Battlefront is good
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   363d ago
both great companies but sadly , none of them has the people to make those great games we had before..
qzp  +   363d ago
I think battlefield is receiving more positive PR because COD is sort off going more and more downhill, people love to shit on cod now. I think EA should have catered more for the BF community on playstation and ride the positive PR train sony is having right now but they aren't, they sold out to xbox for "first dlc" bullcrap as usuall EA going for the easy money even though the PS version of the game is out selling the xbox version.
