Yes, agree. Poor ratings and it looks like poor sales. 24h peak across all platforms was 270,000 apparently. Kind of ironic since they delayed it from last fall (when COD AW/Halo MCC/Destiny were releasing) because they probably feared for its sales.
My opinion? It feels like an expansion of BF4. Its sales and reception accurately portray that and rightfully so
It would have been more successful as a $30 expansion to BF4. Add like 8 new maps, new gamemodes, and 20 new weapons. Heck they could have bundled it with Premium and BF4 and sold it for $60 again. 38 MP maps for $60 is a great deal!
I think it would have as well. I have no reference for the development timeline so I don't truly know how much time was put into it, but I really feel as if the end product is an expansion of BF4
Well I play A LOT of BF4 on PC, and it is hilarious how much the community has been mocking this game. It is practically the unanimous opinion of BF's hardcore that this game should have been an expansion (That we would have all bought btw).
I mean sure you could also say that BF4 was an expansion of BF3, but frankily it did add enough to truly be its own evolution of the series.
Prediction for console Lifetime sales:
Wii:100-120 million, PS3:80-110 million, 360:70-100 million
[Prediction Made 11/5/2009]
3DS: 65m, PSV: 22m, Wii U: 18-22m, PS4: 80-120m, X1: 35-55m
I gauruntee the PS5 comes out after only 5-6 years after the launch of the PS4.
