The ONLY reason Xbox outsold ps4 in December is because ps4 was sold out everywhere. That being said its Sony's fault they didn't have enough product. Or better, didn't release all the product they were holding on to for the japan release.
to me sony withholds to create more demand, they are tricky sons of guns.
A note on renting it. I rented BF3, and couldn't play online. I needed a code that comes with new games for multiplayer online (or buy a code for 10 bucks). BF4 didn't have this, so you should be good to go online. TDM is much faster paced than Ghosts if you are into that. And blowing up buildings is fun in it's on right.
It's quite possible that they withhold to create demand.
Back to an earlier post, bf4 is a great game now that they've ironed it out a bit. My play time is split between bf4 and cod(and a tiny bit of madden25). It really is a good game. I'd say its a bit harder to just pick up and play than cod, but the test mode helps. Particularly with the vehicles.
I was in the beta this weekend, logged about 4-6 hours easily reached the max level they would let us have. I will tell you now the game is fun, but it is no COD killer. It's repetitive, unless no drastic changes are made its replayability is not very high IMO. It looks beautiful, but coming from EA and the way BF4 looks this year I expected that. It just really seems like its missing something, something BIG. You guys can get your hopes up because it's a blast to play, and I recommend everyone checks it out for sure. But everyone will be back to COD/BF within a month or less.
Okay, let me break this down.
I love Ghosts, I feel it is better than MW3 and BO2. I love CoD in general, though. Why? Competition. That is the main draw of multiplayer gaming. Seeing your score, kills, and deaths being better than the opponent at the end of the game is extremely satisfying. Or if they are overall worse, you strive to get better. It's the way with any game. Competition=Fun to a very great extent. Will I get the next CoD? If I have money, yes. And I plan on having the money.
Now Titanfall... I will not get. XBOne exclusive is just dumb. To those who say that Sony doesn't have the server support, then why the hell is it already confirmed that Titanfall 2, whenever it is released, will be available for PS4? I played through all of the Playstations and have enjoyed my time on Sony's side. One game will not convince me to get a console I don't want and/or don't like.
All I have to say is: Deep Down.
