X1 has the lowest player count in BF4; PC is the highest

#1 Edited by lostrib (43008 posts) -

I know people loved comparing the BF4stats user count, but BF4db shows number of players and peak players (24h). The X1 is less than a million players, lower than any platform. PS4 is 3rd below PS3 and PC. I know the X1 has sold less, but I didn't expect it to not even break a million players since Second Assault was timed exclusive.

Obviously the peak players in 24 hours will fluctuate depending on when you look at it in the week

Also, PC has a ridiculous amount of servers, but rent-a-server just launched for PS4

Impossible the xbox live is the biggest community of gamers in every game ever created ask lemmings...

Look at those peaks the PS4 very close to PC while the xbox one trail it badly,oh and look the PS3 version beating the xbox 360 version as well how times change..

Nobody wants an Xbone.

I've seen PS4 a lot higher than that and usually more than PC at most times.

#9 Posted by I_can_haz (6511 posts) -

@SolidGame_basic: same here. I've seen PS4 player count surpass PC a lot more times and by a huge amount. Not sure I trust the website lostrib is using.

1 out of 6 PS4 owners purchased BF4

Man,they're desperate for games

BF4 sucks. I had fun in BF2 but BF4 is childish, everyone wants to be a lone wolf rambo badass with as many kills and dog tags as possible. I would get over 10k points per match and not hardly kill anyone on foot with my weapons.

PC games have more life, consoles game die after the next cod sequel or 1 month after launch.

Probably because BF4 is still broken and a terrible game. Also Its always been more of a PC game then console game so the PC stats don't surprise me. I have it for Xbox one, don't play it and most people on Xbox one that play shooters are playing titanfall anyway.

I remember hearing complaints about a lack of servers as well on the X1.

x1 is not staving for game online too much variety on the x1 to be playing bf4

Nobody want's an xbone, the only thing I see people even mention console wise in a positive way is ps4 round these parts.

#19 Posted by misterpmedia (4521 posts) -

it's been like that since BF4 launched.

@Desmonic said:

@lostrib: Yeah. The X1 has roughly 600k less players than the PS4 version, but it doesn't even have half the servers of the PS4 version. I can see that being a serious issue for many players.

Luckily they just allowed for server rentals...unfortunately there was an issue with the X1 so it's been temporarily removed

Honestly, this. PC will always be biggest as its optimized for it. PS4 has sold more, and TF came out 2 months ago and is getting new content soon. Far from shocking.

No surprise there at all. PS3 over 360 might very slightly raise my eyebrow though.

The best attachment rate in the business. We all know SONY fans around the world buy games for their consoles. SONY truly is on a ROLL.

Hmmm haven't heard that. But then again i haven't played it much. The game is terrible. Very disappointed in it. But as far as people wanting to play shooters on the xbox one they have titanfall PvZ, CoD and BF4. the PS4 has KZ, CoD, and BF4. basically on the PS4 its probably the lesser of the evils

#29 Posted by mems_1224 (48611 posts) -

I gave up on BF4 a while ago. Most of my friends have an xbone and that game is boring to play alone.

So lems are the smartest because the least number of them bought EA's POS broken game?

#34 Posted by regnaston (290 posts) -

I had this game and hated it so it went back

However if XB1 sold 5 million units (to retailer) and PS4 sold 7 million units (to consumers). The attach rate for the XB1 for BF4 is 16.14% and the attach rate for PS4 for BF4 is 19.62% .. so not that big a gap, and I suspect even less a gap if we had the sold to consumers numbers from xbox

#35 Edited by Indicud (745 posts) -

@MonsieurX: almost 1 in 5 bought it for the Xbox One (18% of total console attach rate) also.

4.5 million (4.2 last reported sold through)/802,000= 5.6

#40 Edited by GoldenElementXL (3934 posts) -

Hasn't it sold the worst on XB1? If so isn't this expected? I know I switched to PC months ago so I couldn't even tell you how bare the servers are. Game is still pretty iffy anyways.

#43 Posted by clr84651 (5547 posts) -

The PS3 & PS4 together have more than PC. PC = 2,538,354 PS3 & 4 = 2,788,487

The X1 & 360 = 1,934,027

No idea, I was just surprised how low it was. And X1 did get timed exclusivity on the Second Assault DLC

It's broken in some way across all platforms.

Most likely there are differences in when the "Playing" stats are updated. i was looking more at the number of total players

But Battlefield is so broken it's unplayable!

/sarcasm

Good numbers despite the issues. It's funny seeing that 8k servers on the PC, I'll bet 75% of them sit idle for days on end with no players.

It's not unplayable anymore but it sure can be frustrating. I've been trying to get back to it after a few months off

#49 Posted by m3dude1 (1650 posts) -

just because the game no longer crashes every 15 minutes doesnt mean its not broken.

#50 Posted by RR360DD (13049 posts) -

Probably because Xbox owners have better multiplayer games to play (as much as it saddens me to say).

Cows only have Clownzone so of course they're going to be stuck with BF4.
