PlayStation 4 has overtaken the PC as the lead platform in Battlefield 4.
Doesn't surprise me. PC gets no optimization anymore.
Pc master race my ass. @doomeDX "Yes. Because popularity says how good something is. That is why Call of Duty and Wii Fitness are better games then The Last of Us and Alan Wake right?... You disgust me." What ?
this is a BULLSH%@ article... PC is STILL the lead platform for this game..everyone knows this, and YES, this game is incredibly fun and is worlds better from launch.
@doomed. You need to calm down man. You take PC gaming way too seriously if his comment "disgusted" you so much. OT: this is actually somewhat surprising to me, as Battlefield has always been a PC-in-the-lead kind of game. I guess this goes to show how popular Playstation is this gen. And no, this article doesn't state that more sales=better game
I haven't been into pc gaming for very long but I can tell you the people I do know don't play the same game for very long. Constantly switching to new games and steam sale games. Also, I think the BF crowd would be 2x the size if it released with less bugs and glitches.
Console gamers accept mediocrity more than PC gamers. That's the difference. BF4 is a letdown. Very simple. PC has many more FPS games than the Ps4. Many superior FPS than BF4. BF4 is the best shooter on Ps4 right now and it's a pretty meh shooter.
I quit playing BF4 on the PC to play other backlog games lol. @Codewow It's not like the game didn't have issues on the consoles, regardless of the platform this game has had many issues.
@buttclown, Tell that to all the PC people who still play the horrid GTAIV, should have been buried long ago.
@BitbyDeath You do realize though the pc people are allowed to mod their games?
@buttclown, never said they couldn't. You said PC gamers never play old games, I proved you wrong. GTAIV is an old game.
This is pretty shocking if true. Battlefield made its name on PC. Battlefield 2 is still one of the greatest multiplayer games ever made.
Drop Origin and I'd bet there would be an increase.
@buttclown some games are allowed to be mod and some games not. but whether a game is allowed or not, ppl just mod it anyways.
The reason why there are more players for BF4 on consoles, is because console gamers love buying DLC and other micro-transactions, while PC players just aren't falling for it anymore. Aside from that, most PC players wont pay $60.00 for a game within the first year of release. PC gamers, alot of times, will wait a year or so before making a purchase. Buying a game a year or two after release on PC isn't a big deal, as the communities for most games last much longer than on consoles. Games like Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2 are alive and well on PC, and pretty well completely dead on consoles. And then ther are games like Counter Strike.....
@BattleAxe not saying we should support dlc but your master race ass would rather pay $1500 for graphic cards than pay $5 for games right? free games FTW. you wait 2 years to buy a game till its down to a tenth of its original price,thereby in no way contributing to the gaming industry but rather pumping thousands of dollars into hardware. id like to see pc gaming strive on its own for once
I am mainly a PS fan for the exclusives and trophies but I also constantly game on PC for cheap games I can get my hands on from Steam. but the delusions/arrogance of elitist pc gamers in this thread really disgust me. "Yes. Because popularity says how good something is." "...I can tell you the people I do know don't play the same game for very long. Constantly switching to new games and steam sale games." "Console gamers accept mediocrity more than PC gamers." "Many superior FPS than BF4. BF4 is the best shooter on Ps4 right now and it's a pretty meh shooter." "because console gamers love buying DLC and other micro-transactions, while PC players just aren't falling for it anymore. Aside from that, most PC players wont pay $60.00 for a game within the first year of release." "Show me the ps4 that can run it as well as a PC. The $400 cap holds no water for people that can afford to spend more than $400." "bf4 is just bf 3.5 with many bugs so they moved on. People on ps4 has nothing else to play." ...and more! WTF? it's like their buttcracks are itching to spread BS over things as puny as this! so the PS4 is leading in player counts in BF4 for some months now but so what? why is that FACT bothers some guys so much? Insecurity much? Some console gamers are bad too for taunting over this but for all those "PC MASTER RACE" talks around N4G all these times, you guys sure are a sensitive wuss to even get worked out over something this stupid!
Played BF4 to death on PC already(level 56 yeah not much, but im slow), kinda still play it, but there are soooo many other games in my catalog I havent even touched yet
In the eyes of devs/pubs, popularity = money. So expect to see more CoD and Wii Fit and less TLOU and Alan Wake. Its business.
BF4 isn't that good. That's why my master race brethren aren't playing it. We have thousands of FPS games to choose from. PS4 just has a few, so it's obvious that the majority of the people playing FPS games will play the best one on that platform.
What I get from this comment section is this. If a game is doing better on a console than PC then it means , console has no games, or the game sucks. Stay classy PC gamers.
This doesn't surprise me one bit, PS4 has hardly any games so people play BF4 alot on PS4. PC has a shiz tonne of games on offer, seeing as BF4 has been such a mess a lot of PC gamers just moved on to the greener pastures of other games. Let the Sony fans think this means something important lol. It's just a reflection of a lack of decent online shooters available on "next gen" consoles. Xbox fanboys are always funny, but PS4 fans are scary stupid sometimes on here.
Makes sense. BF4 had a lot of problems and PC gamers have Sooooo many options so they can just play something better instead, meanwhile PS4 owners only have COD and KZ:SF for online FPS so their best bet is stick with bf4
The PC gaming community needs an attitude adjustment. Being antisocial, insecure, unfriendly elitists won't bring any new players to PC. PC gaming is the most open platform...why can't we be just as inviting as the platform itself?
probably because pc gamers aren't fooled by Battlefield...
@ battleaxe Uh, PC gamers don't fall for it? So console gamers are dumb? I can play battlefield on my 60" TV and regardless of how higher PC can display its resolution beyond 1080p it still looks epic... I also have the satisfaction my console does NOT look massively inferior at all. Buy a car for 5k compare it to one which costs multiple times more to notice major differences. Modders on PC are open platform, allow consoles to do this I can promise you GTA 4 could be improved on ps3... let alone ps4 which is proven close to high end PC. This console vs PC shit is so annoying... I know PC is more powerful. Consoles are not able to be upgraded like PC's.... the whole point of consoles are affordable high end gaming.... and uncharted 4 says my $300 console is worth my money more than your "modified cus I got more powaaaaa now" GTA 4 or.... just about any missed game.
More like a too small library on PS4. PC has a huge library.
a huge library full of crappy nes looking indies and flash games, so thats the equivalent of bragging about tons of crap vs god level games ps4 is getting
@mysteryraz11 "bragging about tons of crap vs god level games ps4 is getting" The PC has an entire library made up of AAA titles from the past few console gens that can be revisited, every Steam sale or Humble Bundle i find games i missed the first around that are good.
@mysteryraz11 What's the problem with nes looking indies?
Truth is there's so many other games to be playing on PC. I have BF4 and have only played it for about 4 hours since its release.
Reason for this is simple. More FPS's competing for players' attention on PC. How many FPS multiplayer games are currently available on PS4 for those $10 million gamers to choose from? 5? maybe 6 games? Take a quick look at the player count for Couter Strike:GO on Steam today. It exceeds BF4 players on all platforms combined!!! http://store.steampowered.c...
The disagrees I got, wonderfully represent the delusion and flood of PS4 fanboys on this site. It is a logic thing. If you dont have to many games to choose from, it is normal, that those available get played. If there is a bigger library, the install base will divide further onto different games. Hate it or love it, I dont care. You get disagrees on this site, not for having a different opinion, just for a comment, that doesnt worship their beloved console. We are talking about PCs and consoles here, no need to get personally offended here... "I like my PS4, he says something that is not saying the PS4 can do everything better, I GOT TO DISAGREE" I love that behaviour, especially because PS4 fanboys call everyone deluded, but who is really the deluded one here?
@Chrischi1988 Basically Opinion > Fact here lol.
Is that why the last two games sold better on PC? Because PC had a too small library, and there was more to play on consoles? It's not a logic thing, as logic would have included the information I've stated above. It would also mean the XB1 should have higher Battlefield sales, too. If your comment is logical and/or factual, then logic/fact is a joke. What's really sad about this site is how people like you can get away with passing off fanboy bias as anything but.
