Why CoD Ghosts Will Outsell and Outperform Battlefield 4 (..again)

The fact that both games are being released within a few days of each other as well as each franchise making a brave leap onto the next gen systems has caused the games to come under even more intense scrutiny and comparison.

Here’s five reasons why Call of Duty Ghosts will continue to outsell and outperform Battlefield 4.

It's not looking like it, BF4 is the most preordered next gen game. Call of Duty isn't even top 5 on either system.

RetardedIceCream1957d ago

i think its because most people will buy ghost on current gen consoles

SIRHC131957d ago

Who the hell will buy Ghosts on Next Gen?

Ghosts > BF4 [Current Gen]
Ghosts < BF4 [Next]

superterabyte1957d ago

Ghosts < BF4 [Current Gen]
Ghosts < BF4 [Next]

Killzone 4>>>>>Destiny&g t;>>>>>Battlefie ld>>>>>>>& gt;>TitanFall>>>> ;>> COD ghost

Muffins12231957d ago

Um guys bf4 is 50,000 pre orders ahead ON CURRENT GEN

brodychet1957d ago

something tells me 90% of the usual cod-junkies don't preorder until the last few months up until release.

Those sales will most likely shift.

Although I hope cod dies and horrible death.

greenlantern28141957d ago

well i personally want BF4 more and i have had enough of cod franchise. but the cod games are year in and year out the highest selling games so until that stops people should not talk about it being done or losing since it has not happened yet.
here is to hoping it does, but that fan base seems pretty stable

CoolBeansRus1957d ago

agree, i like battlef. better but COD is known for their numbers and this time it wont be any different. I havent played a cod game since blackops and dont plan on it any time soon. I dont like the way ghost is looking either so i wont be getting it.

Goro1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

@Superterabyte Other way around, just being realistic...i'm not saying it's better, i'm talking sales-wise

CoolBeansRus1957d ago

Ghost will most likely outsell battlefield. This is cod we are talking about here. They have a track record. I like battlefield better but im not ignorant to COD selling history.

SnotyTheRocket1957d ago

Yeah, CoD needs to adapt or die. BF4 is 1080p, 60fps on next gen, so the only thing CoD had on the console versions of BF3 is gone. once next gen is about 2 years in, to allow for more people to own a console, we will see who wins. i'll be playing BF4.

Outsell, yes. It's a Cult's game. Or, 'play it safe' kind of game.
Outperform, no. You must be smoking something. It's engine is nearly as old as me.

Battlefield, at the level of it's graphical fidelity, can never be compared to MAG. What's the maximum players can CoD hold? 12v12.. 24 max? lol.

Garethvk1957d ago

Ghosts uses a Brand New engine and looks amazing. I saw both at E3 up close and while Battlefield 4 looks good, it does not pop. Looks like the same old stuff while COD looks amazing and does have many new features.

MariaHelFutura1957d ago


Not true, Call of Duty doesn't use a new engine.

Garethvk1957d ago

It does use a new engine they showed it off and the trades show it does as well.

sarcastoid1957d ago

If that's a new engine then I might suggest they failed.

TrevorPhillips1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

@Garethvk - Stop embarrassing yourself, it's the exact same engine, just upgraded.

BF4 on the other hand has a brand new engine which brings a lot of things and to my honest opinion the engine is looking absolutely amazing!

jukins1957d ago

Are you trolling or are you really being this ignorant garethvk. I can't tell lol. But just to add to the replies call of duty uses the same engine as it has for the past generation.

Garethvk1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

I sat with the developers at E3 They said it was a new engine. They showed me a video showing off the new features like terrain, texture, etc and then showed the game on the old engine and what it would loook like in Ghosts.


They call it a New Engine, it looks much better than the old one. So if you want to call it a greatly tweaked engine fine. I will go with what the developers call it and wait until I see a final product before I bash something. At least I saw both games in person and talked to developers of each instead of spouting off opinions and statements of others. The facts are that it is a much better looking game then Battlefield and has new features.

MariaHelFutura1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

Here is IW saying it. Sorry, you set yourself up for this. They/I are trying to tell you. It's not a new engine.

mafiahajeri1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

Your trying to emphasize you saw it in person a whole lot and its insignificant, your acting like your opinion means more then ours just because you sat with the "devs" (who were probably actually PR guys spouting out crap)

The funny thing is they lied to you, dont you feel betrayed? They admitted it wasnt a new engine and some guy they intervieweds excuse was that it would take 300 engineers to make a new engine. LOL, what the heck are you doing with the cash then!!?

Sorry excuse from sorry devs, they really do have the best fans like they always like to stress, their judging people like you who are easily deceived off course...

tucky1957d ago

Why all This hate on Garethvk comment?
I personally appreciate the opinion of somebody having seen the 2 games running. New engine or upgraded engine ... Does it really matter if the Game looks beautiful? ... And it's a good looking game

jjb19811957d ago

What are you puffin' on?


Nice try Bobby Koteck... we all know its you!

@Drum, we're all fat basement dwellers? That's a fair assumption. Have fun being destroyed by the internet.

Garethvk is getting all this flak because he's basing his opinion on "fact" that simply isn't true.

awi59511957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

LOL you can put all of COD maps into 1 BF Map whats your point. Little small areas are very easy to render lol. Hell COD maps are so small they dont even have a draw distance lol.

maniacmayhem1957d ago

Who cares what engine it uses. The game looks great!

Garethvk, don't waste your time these haters will use any excuse to talk smack about CoD. The buzz word for them is "same old engine". As if it mattered to any real gamer who enjoyed CoD.

Louie4201954d ago

Neither of them are new engines. Its close to impossible to create a brand new engine in one year. Cod comes out every year Battlefield every 2. But Frostbite 2 from BF3 was pretty much a brand new engine, no need to build a new one for BF4, but just perfect it. COD has not changed in 7 years. The only thing they added was lean from cover, some duck and shoot mechanic, and jumping obstacles (which bf has). 3 changes doesnt mean new engine. Its gonna feel the same. BF4 added going under water, pulling a pistol on water, counter knife, commando mode, levolution, more destruction, jet skies, and more i cant think off. They also overhauled the net code. Its cool to like whatever game u want, but just pointing this out

Cod is finished.. One more year maybe

They have nothing.. Rehash an engine that was left for them... OMFG you have fish that move!!

Pass... Lol

ape0071957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

that is your opinion man but understand that the time took u to write this comment cod will already move 10000 copies of ghosts at launch, so don't be very happy about hating it that much

n4rc1957d ago

I'm not a hater... I have every one of them on my shelf...

But I've become more and more annoyed with the developers that ignore customers and put out lazy and poorly implemented games while raking in billions... Another rehash? Nope... I'm done.. Especially with so much offered elsewhere

They deserve to fail

hakesterman1957d ago

Call of Duty is far from Finished. If there is one thing for sure in gaming it's that people never get tired of shooting other people. And that is what COD is a shooting game. I say it's good for at least 6 more rounds.

Mini05101955d ago

clearly hating judging by the way you phrased your sentences.
And you probably have multiple accounts.
Lol what a joke

bf4 is ahead in pre orders

Heisenburger1957d ago

As opposed to factual truths?

As redundant as trolling a game as past it's prime as Cod, I'm afraid.

coolmastermarktwo1957d ago

cod is dead inside for a long time already so it's only a matter of time when people will forget about it and buy battlefield.

FantasyStar1957d ago

I dunno. While MW3 was lame. I really liked Black Ops and the 2nd one. It was a pleasant sight.

MizTv1957d ago

I hope cod goes down in flames
Same old shit
