Both games have tremendous sales potential, but they’re in very different situations. Which one will ultimately end up with the 2014 sales crown?
The winner will be the publisher for both games...Activision
add Warlords of Draenor to this. With such income, they might dethrone EA.
Im sick and tired of Duty.
Same here, regardless the game will sell millions upon millions this year as well.
I kinda miss the old pre mw call of duty games
I am tired of the noob friendly weapon attachments and community corner campers. Maybe Treyarch will resurrect the series next year...
I am hoping for Destiny (the MMO possibilities have me loving the game), but then again Destiny seems like Halo with a new skin + expanded RPG experience. I think COD needs a complete overhaul and new ideas. I mean come on I was hoping for something new, to me the new exo-skeloton + parkour = TitanFall w/out the heavy armor. I am for sure probably getting both games, but come on how about something new from the 3 major FPS franchises.
It plays nothing like Titanfall, just stop.
@beasly Yes it does. Titan fall felt exactly like call of duty with mechs. I have titan fall for PC. Got to gen 3 then got bored.
I dunno.. Looks pretty damn close to tf in the videos..
Plays nothing like it..I own Titanfall as well and it doesn't play the same a lot of people that played it at the reveal have said the same thing. Chaosxsilencer even said it reminded him of Unreal Tournament. (his words not mine) Titan fall got boring because of lack of content and people hated grunts Call of Duty doesn't have that situation.
COD hands down. Destiny has way more preorders for this year only because it's been available to preorder for about 2 years. It did get pushed back also. COD is on time annually.
I would love to see Destiny outsell COD, but every time I watch live streaming on PS4, I still see 4 or 5 people streaming COD Ghosts. smh
So what let them have fun playing Ghosts. You might not see how fun it is to one person but don't act like its taboo to play it.
I'm entitled to my opinion. To each his own and enjoy your day.
Exactly. I actually like and own every COD game that has come out. I also own all of the BF series games as well as a boatload of other shooter type games. Play what you like, I say. And as far as which will sell more Destiny or COD:AW? I am going to say most likely COD will sell more. As it usually does anyway and BTW, Advanced Warfare looks pretty good so far.
A lot of people will want Destiny to sell the most but that's not going to happen. COD is over rated but also the king selling first person shooter.
new IP vs COD? LOL (anything vs COD? LOL) sales wise, its probably already lost... but i bet destinys gonna be awesome, got it paid for, and cant wait for the 9th... probably pick up COD around March 2015.
Activision win as Publisher, but ultimately their main money maker will win hands down.
Destiny doesn't need to sell as many as COD. It is on a different revenue model that is closer to WoW than COD. It will have "expansions" every 3 months at around $15-20 each, bringing it close to a subscription model but tailored for an audience that doesn't typically embrace subscriptions. Personally I do embrace subscription games, and I expect this model to be a lot better because Bungie will have to deliver the content before getting paid. They can't do a blizzard and just collect subs but neglect to release content for the best part of a year. It will be interesting to see how the mainstream respond when they figure out Activision's plan though.
yea but, thats CODs plan too, 4 $20 expansions a year... or a one-time-fee season pass! when they find out, they wont care. CODs been softening the up for years now, everybodys used to it, and the hot-button topic for gamers has moved on from season-passes to microtransactions a long time ago...
Hmm fair point. I haven't bought a cod game since cod 2, I didn't realise Activision had already made such great strides.
I think COD will sell more but who knows as I'm pulling for Destiny... Casuals are in greater number than core players unfortunately...
Activision sure is in a good spot. 2 games that are gonna sell 10s of millions. Geez they are gonna rake in the money.
