Not sure that one group of 10 is a sufficient sample for this type of question but I'm willing to bet the real answer very specifically is... alot of people are playing Titanfall. I would say a 100% in console sales (of an exclusive title) are an indication (UK weekly console sales) of that.

Still not sufficient data to make any assumptions but just some more info, although a small sample I think the stat is telling...

On TrueAchievements.com the number of tracked gamers are...

Battlefield 4 - 22,196
Titanfall - 22,858

Take from that what you may, Battlefield was released 4 months ago...

The numbers Bogues posted are just for the xbone. TitanFall doesn't come out for the 360 until next week.

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.

I'd love to know the number of reported cheats on PC per day via Battlelog. I don't think that I've been in a game recently where someone hasn't (apparently) been reported. I've been told that I have.

The in-game chat is also distracting, there's always some argument or barrage of insults going on.

Dakar, I'm disappointed in you. 1500 kills with the UCAV?

I'm, aware. The individual kills were still accurate. Obvious bug was obvious.

Will the PS4 still download the new maps when left in Standby mode?

Lagalicious.

Carrier Assault seems flawed and the second phase anti-climactic. Three of the maps are good, except Lost Island which is just a bunch of Islands, with the center one having a plane in it.

Downloading now, 5G + a 500MB BF4 update. Wonder what'll get broken this time.

Every match that I've jumped into on Naval Strike has been unplayable. I made about five attempts to find a solid lobby, then gave up.

From what I've heard, stay away from 64 man Naval Strike games on the PS4. A solution propsed to Europeans was to connect to Asian servers (where apparently there isn't the rubber-banding issue) but then your hit detection goes to shite.

So they held back releasing it on the PC because something was broken but they let the PS4 users suffer. You really have to wonder what sort of fcukwit is making decisions at Dice/EA to deploy updates and patches.

Carrier Assault doesn't last long enough. 10 mins max and its over.

It needs to be redesigned. Once the carrier is breached it's essentially over. Two MCOMs is a joke.

The other problem is there's no incentive to control the capture points after the breach, which means sometimes it'll become a race as two carriers breach near simultaneously, which is also not fun.

Agreed. Maybe the missiles launched at the carriers could do less damage AND the breach opened at 30% say.

Also, MCOMs could be in different places, there looks like enough space.

It's a nice but useless feature. Until they get added in-game, they are nearly as laborious as manual customization.

I've run into too many games where we've gotten slaughtered because some assholes are trying to do C4 tricks in spawn.

It's a pain int he ass, but since I use the battlescreen 99% of the time I play, I actually prep/load my loadouts on my macbook while on the end of round and loading screens.

It just saves me time at the beginning of every match rejiggering my class. On quite a few the maps I always use the same set-up so the presets are handy enough.

Expected post 1.7 image dump:

Check out the mini-map.


My driving skills. Offroading with LAVs is not recommended.


Died on the toilet.


Chaining over 1k in points on Op Locker


Driving directly to the destination.


Helicopter balanced perfectly on the gunner barrel.


Great landing skills by randoms on Flood Zone.


More great driving skills

Awesome! What rocket were you using to kill those snipers? Also, I didn't notice any rubber banding in that video or did you edit it out?

Wait, you didn't hear they upgraded the server hardware? Rubberbanding is rare to infrequent now.
