PS4 - THE NEO

MUCH HAS HAPPENED IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS IN THE VIDEO GAME WORLD WITH TONS OF AAA GAME TITLES ALONG WITH THE TRANSITION FROM CURRENT TO NEXT GEN. I FOR ONE AM NOT ADVERSE TO THE CHANGES THAT HAVE HAPPENED BIG OR SMALL BUT THERE HAS BEEN A FEW THINGS THAT HAVE ANNOYED ME IN THE PAST MONTHS.

THE CONSOLE WARS HAVE BEGUN AND AFTER PLAYING THE PS4 AND XBOX ONE ITS OBVIOUS THAT WE'RE IN FOR SOME SPECTACULAR TILES AND AMAZING EXPERIENCES AHEAD. ONLINE DIGITAL PURCHASES ARE AT AN ALL TIME HIGH AND I WONDER HOW RETAILERS WILL FARE WIH MORE AND MORE PEOPLE OPTING FOR DIGITAL RATHER THAN HARD COPY.

THE MAIN THESIS FOR THIS BLOG IS CHANGES AND I'DE LIKE TO EXPRESS MYSELF ON A MINISCULE THAT HAS ME VERY IRRITATED. BATTLEFIELD 4'S CONTROL CHANGE FOR THE PS4 HAS NOT ONLY ANNOYED ME BUT IT SHOWS A DEVELOPERS BLATANT DISRESPECT FOR THE PEOPLE/GAMERS THAT MADE THEF FRANCHISE WHAT IT IS TODAY.

AN ELITE FIRST PERSON SHOOTER THAT SHOWS NO REGARD FOR PLAYERS EXPRESSING THEIR CRIES FOR CHANGE BUT RATHER SOMEONE'S DECISION TO ALTER WHAT HAS BEEN PUT IN MOTION FOR THE PAST 15 YEARS. L1 AND R1 HAS BEEN THE UNIVERSAL AIM AND SHOOT THROUGHOUT ALL FIRST PERSON GAMES. IT HAS ALMOST EVOLVED INTO EVERYONES MUSCLE MEMORY AND IF IT HASN'T THEN AT LEAST GAMERS ARE ALLOWED TO CUSTOMIZE THE CONTROLS TO THEIR PERSONAL LIKING. THIS GAME DOESNT ALLOW THAT. PLAYING IT ON PS3 THE CONTROLS ARE FINE BUT AFTER UPGRADING TO PS4 I'M INFURIATED BY NOT BEING ABLE TO PLAY WITH L1 AND R1 AS AIM AND SHOOT. I DONT SEE A REASON FOR THIS CHANGE... THE DEVELOPER STATES INCORPORATING THE USE OF THE TRIGGER BUTTONS WHICH IS FINE BUT AT LEAST GIVE GAMERS THE OPTION TO CHANGE THEM THE WAY THEY WANT TO. THIS HAS BEEN A HUGE DEAL BREAKER FOR ME AND PERSONALLY I GOT RID OF THE GAME AND RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE THAT PLAYS GAMES NOT TO BUY IT BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF RESPECT EA GAMES AND ITS DEVELOPERS HAS FOR GAMERS.

CHANGE HAS ALWAYS BEEN APPARENT AND OBVIOUS IN HUMAN EXISTENCE BUT THAT HAPPENS PROACTIVELY. THIS IS A REGRESSIVE MOVE IN MY OPINION. IT SURPRISES ME THAT AN XBOX ONE ESCLUSIVE LIKE 'TITANFALL' WHICH RELEASED PRIOR TO BATTLEFIELD ALLOWS GAMERS TO CUSTOMIZE THEIR BUTTONS AS THEY SEE FIT.
