Digitalwhip - "It sounds surprising to hear that Call of Duty is more popular than Battlefield because anyone who plays Battlefield knows its a great game built on an even greater scale."... "The short answer is hype and marketing."
No doubt it will, but I'm sure that bf 4 will take a significant chunk out of cod's sales this time around. In the end, both will do great, more or less.
I agree. Call of Duty has a much bigger fan base. Obviously it would crush Bf4. Nonetheless, Bf4 will no doubt bring more fans to the franchise.
They always say competition is good for gaming!
Battlefield 4 looks much better. but yes, like you said, its filled with thousands and thousands (possibly millions) of fans. If Battlefield can keep pushing the bar higher and gaining more fans. Well, it may just overtake COD.
Yes,COD will have the edge sales wise but that shouldn't matter to gamers who prefer the gameplay style of BF.
Personally, I can't just have one of these games, I need both of them.
Only sales wise, at the end i will be obliterating with choppers and tanks, lol
Sales and gameplay COD comes out on top.
that buttery 60fps.. not gameplay, it has horrible gameplay i.e. shooting someone first, only to have them turn around and kill you with a pistol.. horrible gameplay,. getting shot around a corner -horrible gameplay. having people camping in shadow corners, with target finders - horrible gameplay.
i completely agree. Shoot someone in the head, well, they are still alive and will shoot u in the foot and you will die. COD SUCKS
well this isnt actually shocking...
Racist 12 year olds.
Aww, that's cute, children think CoD has gameplay. Call me back when everyone has dropped casual shooters and moved to SOCOM and ARMA. Hell, even RSV2 is more challenging than Casual of Duty.
I'm just happy that there is at least a competition... no monopoly in military shooters.
KILLZONE SHADOW FALL will do the job for me. This two franchises are milking themselves like never, it's sad that gamers buy them. Funy how EA has fool many into thinking that BF4 is badass and all they are doing is using the same engine which is outdated and doing the same thing COD does which is milking the cow.. plus all this season overpriced packs in the end the game cost over $120 it's a shame I will pay my $80 and get over 22 maps and over 8 4player co op modes for.Killzone seem more than enough! Maps and value on a true next gen engine technology.
An outdated engine? Dont make me laugh. BF4 has 64 players and changing environments. What exactly does KZ do or has ever done better?
Even the PS2 has changing environment levels, Ref Faction was a great fps once. and even Mag has over 200player online. Lol a f2p game DS has 2.000 players online. What I mean is this are just level design.. whatever BF4 doing was and is actually possible on the PS3, the game is on the PS3 after all and they have to milk it! KILLZONE SF actually has 48 entities but that not the point, it's just a gameplay design. BF and COD have become the same thing, a franchise that is been milked using current gen technology. Don't be a hypocrite. Corp. Do that KZ3 was just made to milk the franchise. Gladly KZSF is not! Sadly COD is still and BF4 is been. I bet all 3 games will be fun to play but I could only get satisfaction from one KZSF thabk to it amazing features up to date technology and free map and great dlc values prices in which I'm not been rip off. Let's not forget EA is even worse and more evil than Activ. They are after all pleasing the xbone fanbase even when their game sales more on the PlayStation brand, that how evil they are.
You still didn't say what makes it better. You just ranted with things that have nothing to do with the game.
Killzone got awesome graphics, more value for money but in the end im getting both :)
Call of Duty is still on top because its very straight forward on the design choices, Battlefield 4 however seems like a big improvement over BF3 in design but is still mostly for the core fans and that´s a good thing. Publishers need to stop trying to make their games more like Call of Duty in design and get new and diferent perspectives.
Honestly, it seems like the same game to me. (Besides a few obvious changes)
BF4 feels more like BF2 and Bad Company 2 than BF3 to me.
BF4 is better than BF3 for many reasons but the most important reason of them all are the much improved map designs.
Don't really care. I play what I enjoy. Don't be a lemming and let other peoples choices determine yours.
I just played both cod black ops games after playing alot of Killzone 2/3, and was not impressed at all. Hype does equal popularity I guess.
Well kilzone is a level ahead this two franchises in term of quality and gameplay. For the first tine GG is doi g things right Killzone will have 16 free maps and a $20 season pack thta I believe it includes 8 co op 4 players horde mode and 6/8 multiplayer maps. Fully customize online game modes. Friendly to new comers. Dedicated server's. Deep clan match system. KILLZONE now is not just a shooter but the shooter to get.. shear feature will make this IP shine once good player's like me start downloading videos on youtube or live stream.
In sales? Sure. But Battlefield 4 is bringing its A game in November, and will (I expect) make a considerable dent in the Call of Duty fanbase numbers...
