    I bought it, for PS4. My wife and I enjoy it, even after our own COD fatigue settles we manage to enjoy it quite a lot. Contrary to popular belief, COD Ghosts does a lot different than the previous entries and to me its a little refreshing. While its not as polished as Black Ops 2 or Modern Warfare 2, it definitely does enough different for me to enjoy it regardless of its short comings.
    Still havent tried BF4. I am weary because EA and Dice do not seem to care enough to correct their mistakes before release and even afterwards. I understand games ship with bugs, even some game breaking, but Ea and Dice dont seem to bothered by it (didnt seem bothered by the bugs in BF3 either. Seems that BFBC2 was the last game they actually cared about). Just my opinion folks.

    @2 My friend and I have been playing quite a bit of BF4 on PS4. It’s does have issues. Mostly crashes after a round. Which is only frustrating because of how difficult it is to join a room with a friend on top of getting onto the same team. Also on some of the biggest conquest maps there are sound bugs. Vehicles without engines mostly. Other than that the game runs pretty well. The battle log integration definitely needs work. I’m enjoying it.

    as a COD hater, i would like nothing more than to see BF4 knock it from it’s throne made of mountain dew and doritos. i’m not surprised, as KAP, stated, and i don’t know if rockstar has plans to release GTAV on XBone, but that would topple COD from the #1 spot, if nothing else.

    *hopes for soul crushing, game breaking bugs to run rampant in COD*

    Yeah I got bf4 on PS3 and had no issues yet.
    I do know there happening but apart from a couple of times not getting hit markers and 1 freeze it has ran smooth as anything.

    Quite enjoying it actually as I tend to play domination which are small maps and there is hardly any camping and little or none sniping.

    @7 I used to think there was some truth in the “Just because it sells a lot doesn’t mean it’s good” argument, but then I played the game everyone points to when they make that argument. There’s truth in the sales numbers actually. It sells because it’s fun and has more personality than Battlefield. Yeah, I named it.

    The bugs that SlayerGT point out. As well as the campaign save completely being broken to where you lose everything and have to start over. Happened to my best friend twice on his 360 version. Once to my wife’s best friend’s husband on his PS4 version. Plus i have seen numerous posts online regarding this. While you can argue that its in the single player only so its no big deal, it is to me as i tend to enjoy both single player and multiplayer modes when i dish out $65 for it.

    Thanks for the feedback slayer. My wife keeps telling me to pick it up along with NFS Rivals….i have been very hesitant. With your remarks, i might reconsider and just go for it.

    @9 Yeah I forget about the campaign bug. I completed it no problem in three sittings. My friend on the other hand had the progress erasing bug.

    Edit: And on PS4′s video capture there’s no sound. Something Dice is aware of. I guess there’s a fix in the works.
