this is the sad truth, while MW3 won't be the better game, it will sell more.

this year, i dont care about MW3... and, i like more Treyarch CoDs
Im about 400hs in Bad Company, Rank 46, and still playing.
I want Reach the max Rank, 50, before BF3, and then, Reach the max rank again.

Also, i cant miss Twisted Metal, and Skyrim

blackops only sold a little more than twice the amount of bc2.

what makes this dude think 3x?

orange-skittle2673d ago

That's some time you've put in. I play the hell out of Bad Company 2 and Level 30 was monster to reach. My only complaint is that we blew our wad too soon. We got a lot of our achievements and perks too soon, so now we play for rank.

@ Everfighter - BC2 sold 7 million, Black Ops sold 23 million. To I need to do the maths?

Wizz, you beat me to it. I was going to say that it's no surprise it will demolish all comers...but I know which one will be keeping my interest with an overall better experience, and it certainly isn't MW3!

StanLee2673d ago (Edited 2673d ago )

And you know MW3 wont be the better game because you've played both right?! MW3 might be more of the same but from the looks of Battlefield 3's 12 minute demo, it doesn't seem like they stray too far from the same generic set pieces and FPS conventions.

yo wizzio how'd you get early copies of BF3 and MW3? can you hook me up too? paypal transaction as usual? i dont know why people are speculating on games that have one trailer released so far with no actual details or footage for the actual campaign, the coop, the multiplayer etc.

moreover, just because you prefer BF3 doesnt mean its better game, yours is a opinion shared by many, i personally think MW series is better-an opinion shared by many.

No doubt MW3 will outsell BF3, im talking 6 months in MW3: 20 million BF3: 6 million.

This is basically saying: "The sky tomorrow will be blue, and water will still be made of hydrogen and oxygen."

Yes, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 will outsell Battlefield 3, no doubt. Critics will cry tears of joy and overhype the game, and it will sell millions, it's a no brainer.

I just traded in all my Call of Duty games (except the original Modern Warfare 4). The original was and still remains the best in my opinion.

Itzy2673d ago

Probably true. Personally, I like COD and never really cared for any of the Battlefield titles. I don't know why so many think MW3 is going to suck. Infinity Ward hasn't let me down so far. MW2 wasn't as good as MW, but it was still pretty damn entertaining.

If it does then congrats to them. I'm getting Battlefield 3 day one. As for MW3, I need to wait and see. Not going to pull another Black Oops on me.

hennessey862673d ago

Which one will be the better game, I'll reserve my judgment untill they are both being played by me on my new samsung 43" 3D TV

Joni-Ice2673d ago

3D for LIFE! I cant wait to get mine. I heard UC3 will look AMAZING in 3D and would be the best game to showcase it.
