NowGamer: Battlefield 3 won't challenge sales of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but could significantly impact the franchise's dominance for the duration of the current console generation according to Janco analyst Mike Hickey...
na mw3 will be for cod noobs and bf3 will be for sniper campers/puppy guardians(people that destroy the entire building with the objectives in it then w8 for you to get it). Oh dont forget your 200 rounds lmg
and yet people complain more of the BS happening in cod. lol sniper campers are annoying 12 year old kids that should move on to cod, hopefully you realized dice moved most of the mcoms away from the buildings so it wont be destroyed by destruction 2.0 and 200 round lmgs are....sort of a problem but not that annoying when you learn to overtake them
It isn't always about sales.
So what should we be playing? ARMA? OpFlash? I don't think so. Expecting big things from BF3, less so from MW3...
lol all i can think is is gona be sad to be online on it and all thouse kids going nuts ... and other point its not going to stop until noth games are out for a few months and plays habe the saying ..
why not Arma 3?
well this year on getting sr3 2last year pc games and uc3 thats it i have 30+ games that have inches of dust last gen>this gen
Red Orchestra 2!!!!
cod! The only game that lets you stand face to face as you get killed holding a sub machine gun while someone dives and knifes you in mid air!!
Well what about the rediculous knife kills in COD. http://youtu.be/oziQaoYmFOw All Bull$h!t
your joking right? i could easily come up wth more bs in COD than Battlefield. that was a bad attempt at trying to hurt battlefield.
no way sherlock
Really? You don't say...
Thanks captain obvious.
HAHA sorry I just imagined you kind of busting through that guy's roof or some other nonsense(lol). *slow clap* VERY funny. :)
Depends on what you define as "beaten", if you mean sales then MW3 probably has an edge due to its already established user base (people fed up with Activision like myself not withstanding). If you are talking about overall quality of product and innovation, I think that we are yet to get enough information to call MW3 the winner over BF3. I for one, and this is pure speculation based on what I have seen, believe that BF3 might take this one.
They're talking sales, nothing else.
The only thing Modern Warfare 3 will top BattleField 3 in is sales. Sadly, that's all Activision cares about.
I also believe BF3 has a shot of disrupting COD series greatly in the long run.
BF3 will definitely disrupt the sales projections they've set no doubt about that. Not saying it's going to out sell it but don't be surprised if BF3 is not lagging far behind cod while cod is well below blackops.
Uncharted is a great series, will not get many sales like COD but its better quality.
uncharted has a better story cod has better online, which = more sales one is tps/action-adventure shooter, the other a fps. whats your point?
Yes it will...Oh, wait...we're talking about sales? Sales =/= quality. BF3 will still be better.
LOL, no it won't. BF3 doesn't stand a chance in terms of anything.
and whats quality? gimmicks that dont affect my gamplay like destructive backgrounds and environments? or straight up good gameplay like cod? enjoy the massive ammounts of battlefield campers, id rather play the quick scoping kiddies running around than a bunch of campers or tank nubs
You've never played Bad Company 2, you just proved that to me. Destructive environments play a large role in multiplayer. Also, I can assure you that CoD has more campers than ANY Battlefield game that I've ever played, and I've played nearly all of them.
How the hell does a destructive environment NOT effect your gameplay? Have you even played a Battlefield game? It's a real simple concept: you're in a building hiding and boom, now the building is gone. I'd say that effects your gameplay. A lot. As far as campers, campers in COD outnumber BF 10 to 1, and that is being generous. You are uninformed, which is my polite way of calling you stupid. The only reason you'll stick with COD is because you are too terrible to hack it in BF. That's why they all leave.
the bad company games are far more "noobish" than cod games. People just camp with snipers in some far away hill/tree and dont even bother to help going for thr obhective. Then you have the fat animals that ONLY use tanks and nothing else. When you're stuck with a retarded team that cant destroy tanks, BFBC 1 and 2 are horrible games. No way will BF3 be bigger than the 10 million + selling cod titles. BF2 only sold 2.5 million, it's not like it's some massive mega franchise like halo, half life, etc, that the fanboys are making it out to be
Get in a tank, blow down the wall... move on. 'No way will BF3 be bigger than the 10 million + selling cod titles. BF2 only sold 2.5 million, it's not like it's some massive mega franchise like halo, half life, etc, that the fanboys are making it out to be ' BF2 is only on PC, and BF2 isn't a franchise, IT'S 1 GAME. Bad Company 2 has sold 5 million+. 'When you're stuck with a retarded team that cant destroy tanks' Have you considered changing class? I can kill tanks with my RPG, mounted gun, C4, grenade launcher, drill... I CAN kill tanks easily. Maybe instead of the game sucking you suck?
You have to be able to use every class, else you're going to get your ass handed to you.
Im sorry, but you need to learn to read. Look at what he said "BF2 is only on PC, and BF2 isn't a franchise, IT'S 1 GAME. Bad Company 2 has sold 5 million+" He never said BF2 was a franchise? He's right, BF isn't a big franchise at all, like Halo, Half Life and CoD are. "Have you considered changing class? I can kill tanks with my RPG, mounted gun, C4, grenade launcher, drill... I CAN kill tanks easily. Maybe instead of the game sucking you suck?" Once again, read what he said. He said his retarded team mates dont know how to destroy tanks, not him. I know for a fact that one person cant destroy an entire team of tank whoring players hat know what they are doing. Countless times i've been stuck on the "retard" team as he puts it and been trapped at my base by tanks, while my team just sits there with snipers doing absolutely nothing. Just because he has an xbox avatar, you twist his words around and try and make it look like he's saying something that he's not?
Why is everyone assuming BF3 is going to be all about Rush? The map design for conquest really didnt work well on BC2 imo, which is why rush is far more often played, but this might not be the case on BF3. A lot of these issues people are having about being trapped in the base arent all that apparent on conquest, providng the level and game design prevents spawn killing in the home/uncap point. For all we know though, conquest is going to be the meat and gravy of MP, which wouldn't at all be surprising, given that the rush mode is pretty much exclusive to the BC games.
Speaking of "mega franchises" that fanboys make it out to be... I think you mentioned...Half Life? Yeah, THAT'S a "franchise".
MW3 will sell more , no one is arguing that but BF3 will be the better game..... quality > quantity !!
Sales yes, quality I don't think so...
screw the analyst.
Would anyone really want all those 11 year old fat kids ruining BF3 ?
lol of course not, like the community battlefield has now, most of the younger people i played with or against stopped playing because the maps were too big or some dumb excuse
BF3 will sell far less units, and that is a good thing. The majority of the irritating 8-year old n00b fanboys screaming on the mic wouldn't buy BF to ruin our online binges. Have fun babysitting!
Enjoy baby sitting the empty servers come January, BF3 won't last long.
bf2 and all bf games are still played till today and servers are full of people. I rather less players than aload of hacked lobbys and cheaters anyday.
Bad Company 2 still ranks top 10 in XBLA activity over a year after release. You fail.
I would believe both of you, but I know you're lying. Try again.
Like we didn't already know that MW3 would beat it in sales. But we all know which game will be better, and it's name is not Modern Warfare 3. I wouldn't want those CoD kids ruining my BF3 experience anyway.
battlefield and cod are 2 different types of games within the fps genre. battlefield is geared toward large scale, vehicle based game...cod is more small team games with little to no vehicle use. the reason cod sells more is that its more appealing to mainstream casual gamer base, one that has seen rapid growth over the last couple years.
*spit-take* WHAAAAAA?! This shocking revelation just made me spill my coffee! lol Yes, COD is VERY successful.
Sales yes quality NO
This looks like a job for...CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!
Does it really take an analyst to figure this out?
