Exactly. It's easy to sell when you're the only game on the market.

It was an ok game. but a shame the story is not even close to being as great as the first 3.

I thought 3's story was so so bad. After I finished it I had that "Wait, THIS is it?!? **bleep** did I just play????" feeling. I though SF's story was a huge improvement over 3.

...other than Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts.  Killzone : Shadow Fall wasn't exactly in a vacuum, and, while I am sure some people bought it simply out of want for a "flagship" or "tech demo" title, I think the game is really great.  It definitely has flaws, but, any way you cut it, those numbers are a positive.

If you love COD & BF, there's a very little chance you'll like KZ gameplay.

BF & COD are default. They come out and are purchased every single year.

Doesn't mean that they weren't competition for Killzone.  Heck, I bought BF4 at launch, and didn't buy Killzone until almost Christmas time.  All I'm saying is that, fanbase or no, Killzone was not the only AAA shooter for PS4 at launch, so, it wasn't purchased by default.

I completely understand both points, but I will say that Battlefield 4's patches have it running smoothly the vast majority of the time on PS4.

 

I have had no major issues since the last two patches, but, I'm not going to blow smoke and promise everyone super-perfect performance.  So, if you;re interested in the game, though dismayed at the bugs present at launch, i can confidently say that the game is worth picking up now.

They weren't competition for killzone. BF/COD attract a completely different demography than KZ. BF/COD attract the more mainstream, casual gamers. Gamers who will buy them on a yearly basis, like EA Sports games, and will be more cautious about buying anything outside of that circle. No matter what is coming out in any given year, BF/COD WILL be purchased.
