Battlefield 4 at 60fps and 64 players will finally give the gamers the games the old consoles could not deliver. Ghosts will pretty much stay with the same old format. Everyone buys the cod games and complain about the cod games. But it always ran at 60fps, and that made for a game that ran smooth and reactive to your input. That is why we continued to buy it year in, year out. Now we can get that with bigger better games, the cod games need to make big changes.
I think you over estimate most people. Hardly anybody buys a game because of how many FPS it can get. Your argument is only assuming that people judge games on looks when that isn't really the case. Obviously, we want good looking games, but if that were the case Crysis would be the most popular game. Your casual gamer isn't going to go into a store and go: "BF4 runs out 60 FPS as well as CoD and it runs on a superior game engine, which means it will look better." They'll go into a store and go: "CoD? That's the most famous franchise and the one I know best, and I liked the previous ones, so I'll get that one." BF and any other franchise has a long way to go to catch up with CoD. CoD has the popularity, the fame, the tried and tested model. BF is still gaining popularity, but I doubt it will suddenly jump up to the sales of CoD.
