What Battlefield 4 and CoD: Ghosts Mean For Gaming

Each year, the early weeks of November have always been the most exciting when it comes to video games. But this year, the world of video games itself is being turned on its head with the releases of Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts, and then the next generation of consoles: the Xbox One and the Playstation 4. While the new consoles will have a drastic effect on the state of the video games industry that will be seen over the next year or so, this new console generation is somewhat overshadowing the effects of the latest shooter competition. So while we have some time before the console war kicks off, here are some of predictions for what the future will entail because of Ghosts and Battlefield 4.

I also think that Battlefield will have more "legs" and a longer lifespan than COD. First, DICE doesn't put out a BF game every year so that makes it more fresh and allows them to upgrade the engine, graphics, gameplay, etc. instead of rehashing the same game every year like COD. Second, they have more avenues to explore: they have the main BF game series with the emphasis on modern warfare. They also have the Bad Company avenue available along with future based games with the 2142 franchise. If all else fails, they can still go back to WWII because I'd love to see one with full on destruction and mayhem that the modern Frostbite engine provides.

if the rumors floating about can be believed Battlefield might well turn into an annualized series which could potentially ruin it but then again COD manages to knock out a couple mil sales a year without batting a eyelid really

OT: what i'd like to happen is for either treyarch or infinity ward move away from the COD branding and do their own FPS not called COD, it would give the gamers a break from seeing COD year on year and change it up a bit
