Console gamers make up 77% of total users. What are the PC gamers doing instead of playing the Beta for the game that has the most liked trailer in Youtube history???

Too busy playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided maybe?

Also I play the Beta on PC, didn't bother to test out PS4 or Xbox One due to laziness lol.

It's because they can't. Their hardware isn't as good as current gen consoles. Not because the hardware doesn't exist, but because they don't upgrade their old computers.

PC gamers are busy playing billions of diff things.

Think about it. PC gamers can play every game that exist. How many games in the world is battlefield competing with on PC?

On console I mean its slim picking you got battlefield or Cod or what destiny I can't even load up destiny without falling asleep and ejecting it.

Competition is stiff and the margins are small on PC too many games bro.

I wish i could get on the beta, been a while since i turn on the PS4, but im too busy with work.

I want to get thins game on day one but I really hate how they do these big AAA games these days are release these days, with how they break them up and editions, and season passes, and pre-order stuff, and missing modes that will get added on later, etc.

Im beginning to hate buying games day one.

The Battlefields out today are pale imitatiions of what they used to be, and after crap like BF4 AND Hardline i would guess many PC gamers (me included) have got to a point that they just say F**k it.

The Death of Battlefield on PC started right after they Made modding impossible, the game is a shell of its former self i i just cant find the interest anymore, i downloaded the open beta a few days ago and i still have not bothered to try it more than a few matches, the game is just infuriatingly average as always. :(

Im also done buying stupidly overpriced Map packs...sorry i mean season passes *sob*

Yeah modding really makes PC games last forever. I Wonder if EA realizes that the most played game on PC IS BASED ON A MOD for warcraft 3 and makes as much money as all of sony gaming division.

PC has a exponentially larger selection of heavily played online titles. (Steam Stats, Battle.net). For example Dota 2 had 1million peak today. CS:GO had 500k. I don't want to imagine Overwatch, WoW, LoL, etc. numbers. Needless to say, it's probably more than XBL and PSN put together, and then some. And those are concurrent values.

The population will be more dispersed with a larger active game list, rather than congregating to the next big thing in a comparatively minuscule line up of heavily played online titles.

I hope this answers your question, OP.

The latest SHW Survey shows more PCs are superior to PS4 than the number PS4 has sold. PC gamers simply have dozens upon dozens of more heavily played online titles than PS4 or XB1.

It really does I'm currently playing through XCOM 2 for a second time but this time with about 80 mods installed which makes the game so more engrossing and deep, i just don't have the time or the desire to play BF.

The Battlefield i put most hours into myself was Desert Combat which itself was a mod for BF1942, damn i loved that game, also Project Reality for BF2 and because of that all i see everytime i play BF is what im missing out on what once was and now isnt, and all because they want to milk your wallet dry, and they wonder why gamers end up so Cynical (ok maybe im projecting a bit here) :P

I'm tired of Battlefield games. Granted, I didn't play BF1 beta on PC, right now I'm busy with Civ BE with Rising Tide until Civ 6's release.

Played it on pc and thought it was good, played it on console and thought it was garbage, in fact I went back to pc after playing it on console and got top of the table on my first match back to pc, thats how much a difference having a decent pc over a garbage console makes.

Anyway played about 3-4 hours of BF1 but spent my last 30 hours playing Deus Ex:Mankind Divided

Legion came out the same time as battlefield 1. Legion is infinately more popular on PC than battlefield. Bad timing

The beta runs until thursday so try and get some time off, even if it's just an hour so you can try it :)

It's a lot of fun !

And yeah, companies are screwing us left and right. making it less appealing to buy games day one.

First there is the price hike on PC to 60 for no reason whatsoever, then you got your multiple season passes (what's the point if you are not even gonna include all content in 1 season pass ?), then you got your microtransactions... Oh and though the company was able to get their in-game microtransaction and DLC store up and running, they were not able to ship their game in a working state... OOPS, too bad, just wait some more weeks !

Still I find myself buying a lot of games day one. In the near future I'm getting Dead Rising (PC), Cossacks 3, DIshonored 2, Battlefield 1... Because I'm still hyped for those types of games. Because I still immensely enjoy getting lost in a game for the first time. And because well, not every single company is out there to get hold of all your money, a lot of them just want to give you a fun experience.

So those are the companies I support and I will continue to support.

BF1 in beta is already in a better state than BF4 was at launch, so that's something at least

Many of the smaller bugs I've encountered can easily be patched towards release. There are of course other problems, more inherently to the engine, seen in several of their other games.

I have been playing the shit out of the beta and there are a lot of PC gamers playing it. However, PC gamers are not sheep and don't just jump on the bandwagon of the latest hyped game. There is so much to choose from on PC and people will just play whatever interests them. Many people won't be bothered with the beta because they are enjoying other games.

Unlike many other franchises the PC version of Battlefield is still the center of attention for DICE.

PC versions always have more options, are amazingly optimized, BF3 on PC was just a whole other game...

The only thing I don't like is how they removed mod support so they could sell more of their premium DLC.

My issues aren't technical polish. I'm not fond of the snipers no longer having the bullet drop that they usually do (any idiot can snipe now, and on a big ass map like that, it's kind of an issue), I do not like how utterly useless the medic feels now, especially since they can barely see if someone can be revived unless someone presses a button, who ever decided Conquest should no longer have tickets is a grade A douchebag, and that map design is fucking atrocious. Outside of the infantry funnel in the center where C,B, and F are, the rest of the points come off like no effort was put into thinking about positioning. E specifically is so far off in bumba ****, that once the side that gets it has it, there is no merit to actually waste time to go after it. Also the "our team is doing shit, save me train" move is super lame.

PC gamers dropped DICE when they started going shitty after Bad Company 2.

Not exactly surprising console gamers still cling to the series though.

Yeah, exactly, anyone can have fun sniping now because of some streamlining to the class. No longer are you forced to just camp in one spot for the entire round. Away from most of the action. Now you can even effectively engage in short range thanks to your bayonet !

Been having a lot of fun with the scout class; And I never enjoyed sniping in BF3&4. My friends laughed their ass off when I told them I was the first to unlock all the scout weapons "What ? You're playing as a scout mostly now ?" xD

Bullet drop depends on the weapon.

Also been having a lot of fun with Sinai Desert. I think I've already spent more time in that map than any single map in Battlefield 4.

ANd yeah, people's opinions are very loud about that E capture point, imo it makes the map feel unique, but it's also a very problematic point (most people ignore it the entire game for risk of dying on the way over or back)

I'm very happy with what BF1 is turning out to be after the immense dissapointments that were Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 3.

Medic issue seems like an easy fix.

How long did you play this beta ?
