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 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.

The low batt should have been there from start
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.

Im not debating the PS4 sold more units. Xbox wont ever outsell PS4 likely because of the media and stigma of reversed policies and being "less powerful". However I have played the same game on both consoles at different times and I honestly didn't detect any graphical visual differences. I know the res is different and the fps is lower on the XB1 on paper for a lot of games but unless you A/B test them together I didn't see a difference. Aside from the fact that in visual fidelity any modern PC gaming rig destroys both PS4 and XB1 in benchmark results. So I use consoles for games more so than the best graphics. Graphics matter but its not everything. And how do we know the full sales numbers if MS hasn't released actual numbers yet? " As I noted yesterday though, without revealing any hard numbers it's hard to gauge how much of an effect the newly priced Xbox One had on sales."

Who wants all these old games? In this day and age it's all about 1080p-4k/ 60fps/120fps any less then that and no matter how good the gameplay or story is a game has it automatically sucks.

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 saturation for players especially with it's 50 patches and game breaking issues. Good game at heart yea that's arguable but it remains a mess on last gen where majority of the player base exists. It's player base is not going to grow more likely it will shrink. And there are gamers that didn't play BF4 that will play Hardline as their first intro into Battlefield. Hardline looks fun and my friends and I will be getting it. Me and my friends all got BF4 at launch and played it heavily even with the game breaking issues. Nine months later and what seems like 50 patches the game is still broken and is played less and less not more and more. EA has already stated Battlefield isn't going to be annualized. Hardline development started 2 years ago the average dev cycle EA has for its shooters. You cannot say that Hardline has nothing to offer that you cant get in BF4 already because factually you don't know that. There are more than enough gamers to support both games at the same time. Support for BF4 isn't going anywhere after Hardline is released so most of your worries are for not. Yeah Battlefield annualized would suck and if Hardline is successful we might be a step closer to that. But that's no reason to write off Hardline (what could be an awesome game). And I don't know how much I believe some random story of visceral being forced to make Hardline over a new I.P. Im sure their are devs at visceral and dice that are very passionate about Hardline.

Im not sure what the cost would be minus the camo but $150 bones seems a bit steep for a controller and headset.

im sick of seeing the word 1080p thrown out like it's a game changer. You can remaster E.T for the Atari2600 to output at 1080p, is it all of the sudden going to look next gen and result in it being a great game??? No it wont. Now Last of Us is a great game and its great they went gold again with it. My gripe is the constant 1080p resolution bandied about like it makes a game. 1080p doesn't make a bad game good and 720p doesn't make a good game bad.
