The master race have often used the game Battlefield 4 to showcase how much superior the PC is as a gaming platform compared to the consoles that the filthy casuals use.
Previously we could only really get the massive 64 player battles going on the PC however with the release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 that has all changed. Both consoles now offer the same experience as the PC except maybe with less lag, less glitching and more enjoyment in general.
This is being shown in the official stats that now show that the PlayStation 4 team has overtaken PC gamers in daily connections.
As you can see from the graph above, stolen from bf4central, the PC was by far the most dominant platform before the PS4 was released however it didn’t take long for the lines to start intersecting.
And pretty much when Hardline was announced the PlayStation 4 overtook the PC and is hasn’t looked back since.
The Xbox One graph has been sitting below all the other platforms but don’t be surprised to see that change when the Xbox One is officially released in new territories next month. I’ve been playing some BF4 on the Xbox One recently and it is by far the most fun I’ve had in Battlefield in quite some time. But take that with a pinch of salt as I haven’t played it on the PS4. It’s more fun than the PC version though.
Is this a sign that shooters are losing their appeal on the PC or is the dodgy code of the PC version of Battlefield 4 the real problem here?
