More Gamers Prefer Playing Battlefield 4 on Sony’s Consoles

Angie Santiago from SpawnFirst reports: "At EA’s BF4Stats page for Battlefield 4, we get some very interesting metrics on the number of people playing Battlefield 4 on each specific system at any given time. Now granted, the stats do change and are dynamic (so the screenshot below only captures a snapshot of the number of players online at the time), but even with the constant flux, I’ve noticed certain trends showing up on the page." (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

why is the headline not "More Gamers Prefer Battlefield 4 on PC"?

the player count clearly shows that

PC 75,561
PS3 54,038
XBOX360 39,612
XBOXONE 22,211
PS4 36,716

Because of how the article is titled. It says Sony's consoles (note plural) right there in the title

Edit: I don't know I didn't write the article. I just merely pointed out the obvious. Up to the author to decide that

title is stupid because how can you say what you "prefer" unless you have played all versions, and are PC players not gamers now? whole article seems rather amateur.
Tvensky  +   253d ago
But it is kinda true... there is more people on Sony's camp when you combine them obviously..

but leading numbers for BF like always is for PC.. and its no surprise, BF started on PC, I played all of them.. and then started again on PS3 with Bad Company 1.. (oh, wasnt there a really bad version of console BF version on PS2 also.. I played something like that...)

@aquamala It's not that difficult to understand...

XBOX360 39,612
XBOXONE 22,211
Total: 61,823

Like the title says "More Gamers Prefer Playing Battlefield 4 on Sony’s Consoles"

@NewZealander He's not saying PC gamers aren't gamers, read the context that's being said: "More Gamers Prefer Playing Battlefield 4 on Sony’s CONSOLES"

PC's aren't CONSOLES.

@mikeslemonade This isn't about comparing two games or two machines. This is just saying there are more players on Sony CONSOLES that prefer BF4 ON [that brand].

More Sony console owners are playing battlefield it seems (at least at the time of that screenshot). Would be interesting to see a graph of the number of players since the launch of battlefield and maybe an average.

Wonder if this is mainly due to a higher number of total sales on sony consoles or the lack of updates and problems with battlefield on Microsoft consoles.

How's this. There's more people playing on PS3 and PS4 combined than there is on PC or Xbox combined.


There's more people playing on Microsoft owned devices (PC/X1/X360) than there is of Sony's (PS3/PS4)

Either way, pick your personal preference.

Corpser  +   254d ago
lol so true that's what the player count shows, but let's make this about Sony vs MS
GUTZnPAPERCUTZ  +   253d ago
It just comes down to preference. My buddy has BF4 on PS4 and I have BF4 on XB1 and it is the same game regardless. His 900p does look slightly easier on the eyes, especially when looking down range but the textures are equal down to veins in a leaf lol. What I did think was strange being a Hardware Guy, is the Textures load at the same speed on each console, which was a surprise since PS4 uses a faster Bandwidth RAM (GDDR5) which any PC or game Tech savy person knows that Textures, character models, objects, etc. are RAM Extensive task and the faster the RAM the faster the Textures and world loads... except this instance. Not sure what MS has going on under the hood with that eSRAM, but I tell you the bandwidth is MUCH faster than the 68gb/s DDR3 speeds they released thats for sure!
Ju  +   253d ago
Textures load with a fraction of that bandwidth. That's why you can't see a difference. The bottleneck is not the RAM, but the "drive" you load them from. This will not even come close to a couple of MB/sec (SDDs could load up to 500MB/s - HDDs ~50MB/s) - RAM is exponentially faster than that (GDDR or DDR3). Either one outperforms this for obvious reasons.
dantesparda  +   253d ago

hey dinkles, those things are being streamed in from the HDD and they are both 5400RPM drives, so there goes your theory. But the higher res and higher average framerates on the PS4 are directly attributed to the faster RAM. The res alone is 56% higher on the PS4 than on the X1 and its been said by devs that the PS4's RAM is ~40-50% faster/higher. The RAM system on the X1 is a bottleneck anyway you cut it, until they find ways around it

Update: Ju beat me to it, but good, you're backing up what im saying

Well it is know that Xbox owners who play online FPS play COD. So it makes sense for BF sales on the console to be hampered by that fact alone.

Since COD is the #1 FPS on either console, that is where a sales comparison should focus if a point needs to be made.

Honestly the most players I've seen online on Ghosts was 21k, so less than what that shot of BF4 shows. Usually I see it average about 16-18k this is XB1 by the way.

I was also responsible for 18 of ghosts sales on XB1, so that could have skewed it. (Not really)

Bigpappy  +   254d ago
So why is COD selling more on Xbox One at a much lower resolution to boot? Can you also see that?
Omegasyde  +   253d ago
@bigpappy. Easy answer, the FPS crowd is split among 4 games.

There are 4 different first person shooters on the PS4:

Call of Duty
Battlefield 4
Killzone 4

For, Xbone there is only 2...Cod and Bf.
ForgottenProphecy  +   253d ago
Alot of Xbox gamers are also Call of Duty gamers, so it's natural they would chose Xbox One as their console. Also, as Omegasyde said, there are more FPS's on PS4 currently, especially with Killzone being the biggest launch exclusive between the two consoles.
Why o why  +   253d ago
To be fair that micro analysis explained why many of sonys exclusives didnt hit halo or gran turismo numbers. Sonys platform just offered more choice and peoples disposable income or time isn't increasedjust because there are more games. If you only have 3 things on your menu the likelihood is that each of the 3 would sell more than if there were 12 on the menu.. Simple economics.

But as a singular platform, then you are correct more people are on the PC.

But that number is unfortunately paltry compared to COD numbers. Probably because COD mostly works.

How can you possibly consider Battlefield a PC centric game? More people play the game on consoles and that's clear to see. Have you any idea how many more PCs there are out there than consoles? God only knows how low the percentage of sales for Battlefield on the PC is when that's taken into account.

"Doesn't matter how you decide to look at the numbers."

For me a higher number indicates 'MORE' ... I haven't got a clue how you see it:

Consoles: 152,277 (165 million install base)

"How can you possibly consider Battlefield a PC centric game?"

In the way that a supposedly niche platform in the gaming market, and, considering it is BF4, even more niche in being only those with relatively powerful rigs can play, has a larger concurrent player count than any of the mainstream gaming platforms.
About sums it up.

Well, Battlefield originated on PC, and it is played more on PC than any other single platform.

You're getting very creative in combining figures for various platforms. It's curious how you're lumping all console platforms together to show it's more than PC, yet when we have a multiplat comparison on N4G that needs pixel counters and extreme close-ups of pixelated grass in almost identical versions, it's supposedly a night and day difference. A console battle that spans 4 or 5 pages of angry comments follows every time.
GribbleGrunger  +   252d ago
@AKS: What make of PC are you referring to?

You can't include ALL PC manufacturers and then complain that someone is using 2 console manufacturers to prove you wrong.

I haven't got a clue why you've gone off at a tangent with the rest of your post though. The argument is whether Battlefield is PC centric or console centric. Quite clearly, no matter how acrobatic with logic you are, it's more popular on consoles.

Xbox gets the premuim treatment because they fork out the money. I play it on my 360 an plan to get it on PS4 in the near future. Majority of the FPS lovers I run into or know on XBL love COD an that's it. COD to me is the reason so many people even have a 360 , dam game should just be an exclusive for the MS console, fits in with the rest of the garbage they have thrown out since Bungie split from MS.

That's what irritates me the most is when DICE comes out an states they chose Xbox because of the cooperation with MS an the feedback of the community. Just come out an say MS gave us a chunk of cash simple as that. Don't say anything about the community, because it has the lowest numbers out of all platforms.

Remember when they released numbers that showed peak number of players for BF3.
PC: 2 Mill.
Ps3: 700,000
360: 400,000

Rememeber when DICE released those last year, made me wish I never sold my PS3 or I had taken the time to build a PC. But hey that's just me....

they really screwed themselves over with no Q&A testing and such before the release.
havent played the game since the first week of launch, and i cant say im going back even after they patch it.

if they just bothered testing the game and checking for bugs instead of releasing way to early just because they want to fight Cod then they wouldnt be having such a huge problem. they should have waited. think if they released the game in December, it would be a hit prob.

in other news, Dota 2 have over 6.5 million players each month.

So, Sony fans enjoy playing a rushed FPS - good for them. As far as games are concerned, it's obviously slim pickings for them.

Casual gamers prefer playing games like Battlefield and Call of Duty and other generic shooters. All Call of Duty and Battlefield games this generation look and play almost identical to Call of Duty 2 and Battlefield 2.

"The PlayStation 4’s lead of Battlefield 4 players over the Xbox One is a more easily digestible stat, seeing as how players might prefer a higher resolution and slightly better framerates and graphics on Sony’s flagship system".

Another reason i luv my ps4:)
