Forums - Gaming Discussion - Player count between PS4 and PC

What's up with the player count on PC, seems like most gamers are playing these games on the PS4. For example: Battlefield 1, there more players playing on the PS4 then PC and it show. I have a hard time finding a match on the PC version.

 

I'm sure its not all online games, but I'm scare to pick up Battlefront 2 and CoDWW2 on PC. Anyone else notice this?



Don’t follow the hype, follow the games

BF is very popular on PC. Its just a game that more console players adopt because it doesnt have tje competition it has on PC. Paladins and Rainbow Six Siege are also very popular on PC. 



There are way more quality options on PC.

If you love shooters why would you be playing anything but PUBG right now.

Also BF1 uses Origin, there are lots of PC users who refuse to play anything not on Steam.



There are far more online MP based games on PC. I find myself playing BF1, SWBF, PuB, Titanfall 2, Heroes of the Storm, FF XIV and more during different days. I used to play BF1 for around 3 months straight, but the content drought came up and I wasn't going to pay up another £40 for the season pass, so I moved onto other games.

I've had no issues finding matches for BF1, TF2, PuB and Heroes so far.


Also like LudicrousSpeed says, there are people out there who won't buy EA games that are locked to origin, just like there will be people out there who won't buy any games locked to B.net or those that require the use of Uplay (I know, because I'm one of them who won't use Uplay, thus I don't buy into ubisoft titles).

Yeah for certain games you should pick ps4 all day long. They can become ghost towns on pc. To answer your question pc players gravitate towards a different type of game to console players generally speaking.

Look at their top played shooters. They just prefer playing them.

I think there are less variety in PC shooters than on the PS4.

Also, why would PC users refuse to use a different store?

Let's not forget cheating in PC games.



Payday 2 has a big fanbase on PC.
I don't want to deal with Origin or Uplay, if they put their game up on Steam, GOG or the Humble Store, without me needing Origin I would probably play more of their games.
This seems to be true of most PC gamers.

 PUBG looks good, but I've got a lot of games to play on PS4 at the moment, and I'm personally fine with just waiting for the PS4 version to release.
