As if this rivalry needed anymore heat EA president Patrick Sodurlund made it very clear where he wants his shooter to be.
"Competition is good. It brings the best out of people. If there was only Battlefield or only Call of Duty, then the development teams might have been a little bit more content. We don’t look at them necessarily and mimic what they do. Maybe [Activision wasn't] thinking about us much when we made Battlefield 3, but I can tell you, they are thinking about us now. They need to. We made a dent in the FPS market and we took share from them. And I am not going to give up until I’m No.1 and I am going to make sure I’m No.1."
I think gaming rivalries like this are great for us gamers. It gives the companies something to strive for. If we didn't have rivalries then we would have a ton of mediocre games. Which side are you on? Battlefield 4, or Call of Duty?
