What a joke VG
Not as big of a joke as you..
Any need...like seriously. How sad.
With a name like soldja, you should not be teasing anyone.
@soldja, the game is sh1te like your comment. It deserves to bomb hard.
why did you need to get personal with that soldja?? His opinion hurt your feelings or something??
Only because it was bundled with PS4 for the holidays I bet.
So many Star Wars fans
So many wallets to be emptied. 😉
That’s a massive 64% drop in first week sales from the previous Battlefront.
If that's the case then that's great.
Even still, is it safe to say they're over 5 mil by now? I hope EA suffers for this.
Thats an interesting stat, thanks YodaCracker. I was just looking at yhe sales number of 1.3 mil and thinking not bad but when compared to the 1st installment.... gee whizz, she is a low number hey!
I'm really enjoying the campaign. looks so good with HDR on my TV!
Yea it's really impressive looking on the X. Definitely a good showcase. Plus I've been playing the MP on a daiy basis.
Nobody cares, nobody cares
Very beautiful game, I bought it on both systems and I'm having a blast with it.
Played the EA access trial and wasn't impressed the character models just looked horrible for Nov enemies no emotion on their faces just stand and shoot no really movements just kind of rushed
After all gamers did to Protest Ea MT Awareness you bought it? Shame on you
don't regret it either. it's awesome. Yh they're effect up the microtransactions but they have tried to fix it and the core game is brilliant. and it's STAR WARS so....
No. Shame on you for trying to shame a gamer because you dont agree with what games he should play. Keep your crusade on if you wish, or pretend to, because you have a lot of work at hands, but dont try play the bully
Despite the controversy, the casual and probably a lot of hardcore gamers just don't care.
People buy for different reasons. Lots of people got it for the single player stuff and don't care about the multi player loot box stuff. Personally I don't think that the single player content was worth full price, but is probably a solid buy at half off.
They do care, the game dropped from over 3m first week sales for the first game, down to just over 1m with the sequel. It literally dropped 2/3 of it's first week sales, and it was still bundled with the PS4 for the holiday, so it's not doing nearly as good as EA hopped, even though 1m is still a good seller for most games.
@OB1Biker I was also 50% off on PSN, and again it sold 1/3 of what the original did. https://www.gamefaqs.com/bo...
Most normal people don’t care about any “controversy” seen on here. I’m impressed what a few thousand people did by being loud babies though. That’s not even .001% of the gaming community. The social media mobs really have making themselves look bigger down to a science.
I’ll get hardcore downvoted but the whole P2W is completely wrong on this game. Haven’t spent a penny besides the initial purchase and I’ve been doing fine playing with friends.
Well you cant literally spend a penny since launch. and why wouldnt you be doing fine anyway? Now its fair to say people dont like the loot crates but you cant buy any with mts since launch
You could for the first couple of days. They removed the transactions in response to the outcry, and their stated intention is to rework and reintroduce transactions at a later date They might fix them, or they might still be a smeg. Time will tell.
@tank I got the standard version in the UK on day one and MTS were already frozen. I know the deluxe edition released three days earlier so that maybe so but I mean day one standard release. It's not clear what they will do and not necessarily reintroduce the MT. Time will tell like u said but it's already been a while and many gamers may have got what they wanted and even moved on. Thing is its best to talk about real up to date facts rather than building castles in the air.
Same here... Got the game for 30 bucks black Friday.
That's how you do it! Buy it when it's half the price. I haven't bought a full price EA game since Mass Effect 3 and Bad Company 2. They offer so little at launch these days, and they have all kinds of server issues over the first 6 months with pretty much all of their online games.
That's because the matchmaking system decides before if you are going to win or lose the next game.
They changed the game man, but its rumored to be coming back
For fucks sake
Congrats EA. NOT!
Own it just cuz I needed the limited edition pro console, still haven't even unwrapped the game
Must be below expectations.
Ugh still too much, should be much lower
That's all? Lol
Just goes to show that people like us on sites like this are the minority. Mainstream people either don't know or don't care....
Might seem like a big number, but for a franchise of this magnitude, they were expecting far bigger numbers. Especially considering the sales are considerably lower than the first game.
I think it was timing . Ea waited for "The Last jedi" to release in theater to brainwash people in buying (game) but backfire instead .
I’m glad this game flopped because compared to DICE’s past games Battlefront 2 is a rushed mess. -Graphics are horrendous. (No Anti-Aliasing, jaggies on screen, pixelated textures, frame rate drops, etc.) -Player classes are useless with the exception of the Heavy Class. (All of the classes need a buff. Badly.) -Optimization for consoles is done poorly. -Playing in 3rd person is a mess. -Loot Box system is a greedy move to consumers. etc. I regret ever buying that game. It’s such a shame because this game had great potential. DICE really needs to leave EA and take their time making games. Stop rushing your products.
-Graphics are horrendous. (No Anti-Aliasing, jaggies on screen, pixelated textures, frame rate drops, etc.) Buy a One X
The micro transactions turned me off but I got it as a gift and play it a few nights a week. It’s a lot of fun. I don’t think it should be called battlefront but it’s a good Star Wars game for the most part. Single player is really close to being good and multiplayer is sorta addicting even though it’s not even a little deep. It’s a decent game but don’t pay full price.
its interesting because i have both bf2 and and COd WW2 qnd cod multiplayer looks like ass. Fire looks pixelated and it honestly looks like a 360 game. Am i alone on this? was my copy of the game flawed?
The games a masterpiece...those who play it know this...don't compare it to that junk. Yes you are alone. WAR alone blows away any battle Royale game mode out there. Fire pixelated? Are we playing the same game here? Do you work for EA?
Don't be a fool, cod ww2 is just as much garbage as BF2. How can you slam 1 developer and bend over and take it from another doing the same thing and praise the for it. Anyways you lost credibility calling cod a masterpiece. Have they got headquarters fixed yet?
Easy there Krysissy...the name makes sense now. What's wrong with hq...and btw who bends over and takes what?...ive bashed Activision too for mts but the truth is Activision's mts are non intrusive compared to what EA tried to do. Wake up. There's a reason COD sells.
Damn you people!
Oh no, only 1.33 million. How will they ever feed their family’s??? /s
And this is why they will keep working in those MTs
