Battlefield 4 boxart bashes Call of Duty Ghosts

EA isn’t one to back down from a challenge and they’ve got choice words for Activision and Call of Duty. On the back of the retail box for Battlefield 4 this quote can be found:


And EA comes out swinging! This isn’t anything new per say but its kind of amusing to see a major third party publisher do it on their game’s actual box. You’d think if your series is so great it wouldn’t need to insult other popular games in the same genre. But that wouldn’t be nearly as fun now would it?

Rockstar doesn’t put press quotes expressing that GTA V is better than Saint’s Row, Sleeping Dogs, etc. Not that it is or isn’t, just seems a bit silly to act like a single quote like this on the back of a game box is going to make the difference between a customer buying Battlefield or Call of Duty. Then again you never know!

    The insecurities really show, another childish jab?

    This is yet another reason for me to believe that AAA third parties have gotten WAAAAAYYYYYY too full of themselves.
    First it’s lack-luster ports of old games with missing content instead of new, original games, and now its taking childish pot-shots at each other on box art.

    If this is how the gaming community is “maturing”, then I think we’re in NEED of another crash just to get things straight again.

      You can always pick a cod fan out of a group. The writing at a first grade level is a dead give away.

        This post is one of the most ignorant things I’ve ever read, and like icing on the cake, you’re calling other people immature and stupid.

        You know why this “game war” is such a divide? Because immature, arrogant children like you (that don’t belong on an M rated game to begin with) can’t tolerate that someone else can enjoy something you don’t like.

        So, because you lack the basic mental fortitude to prove your point (whatever that point actually is), you resort to insulting the other party with a lackadaisical regard for what the argument was to begin with. Not that there’s an argument anyway. There is no ‘superior’ franchise, the games play completely differently, and it’s a matter of personal preference. That’s a fact that’s obvious to anyone who’s actually of age to purchase the game without their mommy present.

        Shameless and absolutely pitiful. If you’ve got a point to make, make it. Insulting millions of people (myself included), says more about you then it does about them.

        You hateful little kids need to grow up or shut up, it really is that simple.
