I like Dinklage as the Ghost now. I didn't at first but after many hours in the beta I have grown fond of Dinklages voice as the ghost and they are in separable now so better get use to it. Bungie this close to release isn't going to change that.

A little bit of a let down, but we don't know size and scale of the areas we didn't have access to in the Beta. So im still stoked, I didn't really enjoy the multiplayer that much it seemed rather generic for lack of a better term. The main story and missions were awesome enjoyed randomly kickin ass with other guardians and friends. So really looking forward to the game and will give multiplayer another go when the game is released.

Sold too bad for them to admit??
I think it's safe to say it was around 1 million sold give or take. MS looks at the XB1 as doing really well and being successful. Gamers look at it as if your not beating Playstation sales then Xbox isn't successful. It's a pretty shallow view from most gamers especially the biased ones.

How does a game studio and game publisher not putting out a game help them or gamers??? Honestly it wouldn't help. BF4 is already at optimum...
I thought the cops and robbers take on a Battlefield game was always a cool idea. and with Visceral being the main developer the single player will also hopefully be pretty swell. It is battlefield at its core but with a different theme and storyline. Nothing wrong with that. BF4 had/has too many issues and I for one look forward to moving on past it. It has it's moments of fun but plenty of moments of game breaking glitches. I understand their are people that went for the premium and feel slighted by a new BF coming out so soon. I didn't go premium right off the bat because I wanted to actually spend time with the game before I spent money on premium. And turns out I was glad I did. I may throw in BF4 every once in a blue moon for a match but I'd almost rather go back and play BF3 (which I do on occasion). This delay should assuage some fears of BF4 being eclipsed and losing players so soon after release.

"In closing, Troedsson reiterated that "in addition to the ongoing development of Hardline, it's important to note that the DICE teams continue to drive Battlefield 4. We continue to explore new opportunities for improvements and we are still releasing new content, including Dragon's Teeth, the fourth expansion pack that launches worldwide on July 29, and Final Stand coming later this year. We remain committed to giving you the best BF4 experience possible." There guys don't worry they aren't splitting resources or abandoning BF4. Give Hardline a chance beyond the Beta im pretty sure it will be a success for EA. They just delayed it to make improvements. "wait it's delayed? hows that possible EA forces devs to release games even if they are not finished" That is why I held DICE as more responsible for BF4's mess and game breaking issues. DICE likely could have had more time but they had overconfidence in post release patching or something.

I agree with the writers opinion. I also wonder when did it became common practice for a company to publish a new game from the same franchise when...
Resources are not split in two, Visceral is the main studio handling Hardline with DICE helping. You enjoyed four Battlefield franchise titles and then BF4 releases with launch issues and you abandon the franchise all together??? Yea that shows a person with completely rational judgment and logic, kind of a knee jerk reaction isn't it? There are plenty of Shooters that are 3-5 years old that are still "supported" so in your theory they should never make another game because it would "split" resources. You are grasping at straws. And with Visceral handling the bulk of that DICE will carry on support for BF4 and continue working on Star Wars. And fyi it's always about options. The company that gives it's consumers options always fairs far better and has more fans and consumers than a company with fewer options. It is an imagined issue of "if they release a new game that will take away resources from the game I like to play and I don't want that". That's not true and if you say it is then prove it. Show us proof of resources being allocated to Hardline that were originally intended for BF4. You cant because Hardline was in development at a separate studio (Visceral) for nigh 2 years before even BF4 was released byDICE. And all FPS are similar, story is what sets them apart. All Cod's are similar and that franchise has millions more fans than Battlefield. I don't want an annualized BF franchise but the proof is in these annualized Call of Duty games that are majorly popular. If you have multiple studios 2 games can be supported concurrently with ease there are more than enough resources at EA and more than enough FPS fans to financially support both titles with ease. And i'll say it again for fans options are always a good thing especially when it is two different games supported by two different studios working together on the same franchise. It is a great setup for both BF4 and Hardline.

I think the fact that Hardline has been in development for almost 3 years pretty much says its not just an "expansion pack" or DLC. ""frankly if you play Battlefield for the single player then your doing it wrong"". That's a pretty shallow statement and having that kind of outlook on FPS single player campaigns makes validating any of your opinions more difficult to other gamers. The annual CoD titles that sell millions of units every year year after year are proof enough that people will support games of the same franchise coming out back to back. Now I don't condone Battlefield being annualized and EA/DICE says it wont be so im not concerned about that. Automatically shooting down a Battlefield title that a studio has been developing for near 3 years because its too soon after BF4 is a pretty simplistic reason and one without merit. So I can clarify that a game being developed by Visceral/DICE for 3 years is not just an add-on/expansion pack or DLC. Just because games are alike in a franchise and released a year after the last one doesn't automatically justify complaining that you should have got it as DLC. Yea we all want more for less I get that. Don't buy Hardline plenty of people will if you do or don't wont really effect EA/DICE or Visceral. I tend to actually wait for games to be released before I make a decision like that. Because I like to make informed decisions not based on website articles/rumors/here say but rather my own experiences.

Maybe some of these should already have been in effect but it could be worse you could have a PS4 with a long list of non-features that need added. 1.The ability to just play an audio CD or MP3's 2. DLNA 3. youtube sharing 4. suspend and resume gameplay 5.USB support sucks no video or mp3's can be played off USB drives. 6. No background choices, you can have any color you want as long as it's blue and boring, come on what the heck. 7.Better Blu-ray playback quality, supposedly the PS3 has better playback quality for Blu-Ray, now were downgrading Blu-Ray video quality wise in the PS4??? 8. DS4 battery life is pathetically short. The list could get pretty long and most of these haven't even been touched by Sony. It deff plays games though i'll give it that.

Maybe but at least they update monthly and continue to improve the console.

Nah, you will see Hardline will be fine so will BF4. I actually thought the Beta was pretty cool. More options are never a bad thing. DICE/EA kinda dropped the ball with BF4. Great game under all the mess and its improved a lot. Yet as I said its at its optimal saturation point with a couple DLC's left, it's likely not going to be gaining to many more players and the pendulum will actually swing the other way and it will steadily lose more and more players over the next year or so. That doesn't mean it still wont be a thriving community it just means that there is room for a new take on BF with Hardline. There are enough gamers to easily support both games and as I said options are never a bad thing.
