From what I've seen, there are no technical issues or anything on PS4. Just seems to be because Sony had marketing rights for it and most critics got PS4 review codes as a result.

Or maybe Xbox gamers prefer the setting, I guess PlayStation gamers may have been more upset with the religious cult aspect.

Pretty sure its that PS4 is the main review platform, more reviews = more chance of diversity in opinions. Happened last gen with the 360/PS3

Couldn't tell if you're joking or not, if so disregard this

Oh yeah sry ^^' Thanks for the advice!



From what gameplay I've seen the AI is absolutely braindead.

It baffles me how games get more and more pretty yet the AI gets dumber and dumber.
