More DICE Developers Offer Views on Xbox One vs Playstation 4

xbox-one-playstation-4In the aftermath of Microsoft’s shocking decision to delay the Xbox One launch date in Russia, Sweden, and Denmark, some DICE employees offered their view on the next-gen home console war.

I see Microsoft seems intent on making it easier and easier to pick PS4 for Gen4 in Sweden.” stated gameplay designer Alan Kurtz.

Gameplay designer Gustav Halling also joined the outrage by posting a comment on Twitter. “Not sure what Xbox is thinking when not launching in a progressive country like Sweden, we always buy what is hot and that will be PS4.

If developers of a very prominent game are concerned about the Xbox One and the decisions of Microsoft, how will this influence gamers who want to buy one of the next-gen consoles this November? This may give Sony fuel to expand their Battlefield fan base which seemed very small for Battlefield 3 compared to the PC and Xbox 360 communities. According to VGChartz, PS4 pre-order totals for Battlefield 4 are currently dominating Xbox One pre-order totals for the game.The Battlefield 4 community may witness a major transformation this holiday season with the potential of many Microsoft fans joining the rival Sony.
