User Stats Reveal Battlefield 4 Now More Popular on PS4 Than PC
Even if the last few Battlefield games saw console releases, the franchise itself has been known as a “PC” game” ever since its inception. However, if recent data is to be taken at value, it seems a change on the series’ player behavior is already happening.
According to P-Stats Network (via BF4 Central), a site that tracks Battlefield 4 player numbers across all platforms, the PlayStation 4 version of the shooter is now the most popular out of all five platforms the game’s on (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC). You can check the graph below to see how the PC version was at launch the platform with the most active players, but has since been eclipsed by the PS4 version.
Given now-gen console versions of Battlefield can, for the first time, have 64-players in one match — which was previously a PC-only feature, that could have been the tipping point for Battlefield players to migrate from PC to the PS4. Add in the fact that BF4’s PS4 and Xbox One visuals aren’t that too far off from its PC counterpart, well, this info is not as surprising as some people think.
Will this continue with the franchise’ next entry, Battlefield Hardline, when it launches early next year? Your guess is as good as mine at this point. Are you surprised that the PS4 version of BF4 has managed to overtake the PC version or should we expect these happening to most multiplayer games moving forward?
