EA is seriously gunning for the top spot over Activison, this is a very good sign but will it last? check out more details in the video below
ITS NOT SUNDAY! WTF Edit: I enjoyed watching the video :)
It must have been an emergency. I mean, he had to even turn the fan down. Lol.
P.S. I'm waiting for the second reason ._. "One....I don't want that interuptn'..wat I'm about ta sai! Aight?" Aight hibbidyhop... :)
Have the gaming community finally come to realization that Battle Field 3 is the better game to buy this fall? Stay tuned for the conclusion THIS FALL!
great news if true
I thought WTF then I realized it was the HHG show. It can't be real then HHG never posts anything real first. Or real at all for that matter lol. HHG = Fail Gamestop sales = F*** all and are not a representative of total sales world wide on all platforms form all sources.
Wow that title was unexpected for me. However it doesn't say its winning among all stores, but that's great news if its true. That means they'll both sell ridiculous amounts of copies.
where's the source to back up his claim? Oh there is none.
If I ever end up on TV or something, I'm also going to wear a shit baseball cap and a wife beater... who needs any class.
Can't believe I watched the whole video hoping he had a credible source. Seriously, WTF man!?!
To me it makes sense. To quite a many PC gamers (me included) COD has been just a substitute until the next Battlefield arrives. When battlfield 2 was popular COD couldn't hold BF jock, but in BF's absence of nearly 4 years COD is primed to slip back to 2ND. AND not only that but the apparent exclusive treatment that the XBox360 side is getting Activision could loose part of the PS3 audience to both Pc and PS3 versions of BF3.
so I'm guess it's just another "LOL LOOK AT THIS ALL CAPS" title from hiphopgamer, why am I not surprised?
VIVA LA REVOLUTION!
VIVA LA ROBOLUTION!
This is what we call a pipe dream, kids. Even if the current pre-orders are higher for BF3 now, MW3's pre-orders will be above them in the first week they start showing TV spots. And the biggest seller will be Call of Duty. We wish BF3 would outsell COD. But let's not delude ourselves. COD is still going to be the better seller.
man I clicked open in new background tab and out of no where I hear 50 Cent. As I flip through each tab I had open like a mad man trying to find the source, I knew instantly as I wound down to tabs that it had to be a HHG link...
Sad thing is, many of those pre-orders are probably from the core gamers. Many people i know will just pick it up whenever they see it in the store.
HHG can't afford central air? Not surprising.
lol, I hope BF3 sells a ton, got nothing against the game myself, bottom line is I like COD franchise more, Im just sick and tired of the n4g elitest attitude of every other fanboy thinking they know whats best for gamers, quite frankly the longer I read comments on this site the more I believe you guys know less about gaming than your everyday avg joe gamer. At least they spend less time cheering for a brand than actually playing games they like. lol, as for sales, Im sure MW3 will do OK /s, Ill be picking it up day one along with a *few other folks. I hope when you all finally see the *low MW3 sales figures you will remember this news and cry. lol
@JOY... on the flip side, I have nothing against COD! I'm no fool & know that MW3 will crush BF3 in sales and I'm hoping the COD fans stick with their franchise! Both games play very different and the last thing I want to have is a team fully of COD players, playing as individuals & putting stats before team objectives (basically throwing tactical gameplay out the window). So again I say I hope MW3 sells through the roof to keep the gamers with short attention spans occupied, so us gamers with patience can enjoy our game as well. I sincerely hope you enjoy MW3, Cheers!
yep I agree Cybercam, I tend to enjoy COD style of fast pace action more than tactical team based gameplay of BF games, but by no means is that due to a "short attention span", its just a simple preference between 2 very similiar shooters. lol, I doubt those who prefer BF3 are anymore "patient" than gamers who prefer COD, but of course I think some people always have to find a rationalization for why a game they really like just doesn't appeal to the gaming community in the same way as a more popular franchise. The truth is when it comes to shooter sometimes tactical gameplay is a great thing, sometimes running and gunning and killing everything in sight is a great thing, a mix of both is probably ideal, but every game is different and ultimately whichever direction the dev chooses to represent the "feel of his game the end result is "How much fun is it?", thats very subjective but people vote with their wallets and from that perspective it seems more people simply like what COD offers over the competition. "gasp, OMG whats wrong with them?" Now when a competitor actually brings something to the table that MORE people want to play as oppose to COD then more power to them, until then talk is cheap BF3 ultimately has to draw more gamers in based on whats on the disc not based on what people on n4g say is better and no amount of hate, downplaying, or silly labels for those who prefer COD is going to change that, again what will change that is when a competitor *consistently offers something more compelling that MORE gamers want instead of COD.
I agree with most of what you said, however you have to admit that an overwhelming majority of COD players are impatient. I've tried to get players to slow down, think a bit & try to use a bit a teamwork. No dice (no pun intended), for the most part they want nothing to do with that, they're happy just running around aimlessly shooting everything is sight, while getting flanked from behind. If your team is smart they can control the opposing team's spawn point & keep your enemy in front of you! Also, you must admit that COD is probably the easiest FPS game to play, hence is one of the key reasons it's so popular. So many people that weren't traditional gamers, start off & stick with COD because of the high success rate the majority of people get. Most of the time if you have an above average connection or you are host, you'll do very well. On the flip side I've tried the same thing with the BF games and the majority do listen to reason and will attempt to play their roll on the team. It seems to invoke a sense of accomplishment when everyone works together for the TEAM win, not just one or two individuals with a barrage of killstreaks. This is what I was referring to when I was speaking about patience. It was no personal stab at you. Cheers!
OK I see what youre saying, for the most part I agree. Now just to add to WHY I prefer COD, Im pretty busy, I have a great job, I usually play pick-up basketball at the local gym 2-3 times a week, Im very competitive by nature, but I work alot, so gaming has always been my stress relief. I love all types of games, like to play with friends, Gears with teamwork is amazing especially the Horde mode, a good multiplayer shooter is perfect after a hard days work, those days I dont want to be "organized", I just want to get into a really competitive game and take on the world all by myself, no waiting for friends, no role to play, no strategy, just "free for all", just hunt him down and show him Im the better man, sure COD is the easier of the 2 to just "play" but I disagree if youre implying it does NOT take a helluva lot of practice and talent to compete at a high level. Yes COD strength is accessability to the masses but in my eyes thats not a bad thing, either way thanks for the sensible response and enjoy BF3.
fuck all the hiphopgamer haters, he has accomplished wat u never will, I might not always agree with this dude but he does his job with great passion and i salute him ,,, btw i aint black
This is great and BF3 deserves this to be honest. I hope that it sticks this way and MW3 doesn't take over.
I hope that the better game will eventually outsell the other, but in reality it's never the case.
I think a lot of gamers are disinterested in MW3 since so many bought Black Ops and MW2 and more or less felt like they purchased $60 DLC
yeah and it was worse than MW2 anyway (besides a few fixes with MP) plus all the extra DLC that virtually everyone buys coming out to over $109 for a downgrade with a bunch of sh***y maps (IMO, all BO DLC was trash, worse than the stock maps, unlike MW2 which actually made me WANT to buy the DLC)
Well, we'll see what happens later this year after launch. The pre-order incentive for BF3 might have a hand in the numbers as they stand right now.
it's to be expected. Battlefield is amazing
Oh god it hiphopgamer. I don't believe anything he says.
That's because you're a known CoD fangirl on N4G...
'She's' a stealth troll.
Why bother posting under and HHG article then? Makes sense. /s
What Warprincess116 said. Does he actually bring up a source as to WHERE Gamestop confirms this? At their website? Where? And no, i´m not gonna check the video.
I lol'd when he said Black Ops 2. Why would that POS game get a sequel. Oh wait, MW2 is getting a sequel so I guess it's possible. I heard Treyarch were helping with MW3's development plus they're still working on Black Ops map packs so Black Ops 2 wouldn't have very much dev time if released in 2012. I don't think the CoD formula will ever change unless people stop buying them every year no matter what. Just like HHG said CoD games are selling for the name Call of Duty and not the game.
You HEARD Treyarch was helping with MW3? Oh God people will believe anything.
This is the best news I've heard in a while.
provided it's true...
http://www.vgchartz.com/pre... That's the most reliable one we have, and it is showing battlefield getting destroyed by MW3.
What a great video
Wait, I just woke up. BF3 and MW 3 are released already? *runs off to local store cash in hand.
Interesting, as this paints a very different picture to the one at vgcharts preorders.... http://www.vgchartz.com/pre... Unless this is from a false source like, idk hip hop gamer.......you all hate him when he usually says things, but know he says something you like. You all take it as truth.
He said at Gamestop, not everywhere you can pre-order.
Ok, but is one of the biggest games retailer in America? Gamestop, and if gamestop has battlefield 3 selling more, I would be extremely surprised, sure in a couple of stores maybe, but are really going to believe hiphopgamer in this one? There is no chance in hell that battlefield 3 is outselling MW3 in any store chain in America as a whole. Battlefield 3 will sell fantastically, but MW3 looks like it is going to shatter all sales records this November.
@Sitris I have no doubt MW3 will outsell BF3, but what I'm saying is that there are many more stores outside of gamestop. Many people across the world buy games and I'm sure those people across the sea don't go to a north American Gamestop to get their games.
I don't believe HHG, but do you honestly expect people to believe VGChartz when it's been wrong in the past too?
Also, lets not forget the massive amount of PC digital download preorders that are rolling in. Those sales are never counted but I'm sure bf3 will outsell mw3 on that platform.
Meh, in other unrelated news, lookin' good in that tank top!
I guess people are finally getting smart.
Oh shit... Thats actually shocking. Good the hear lets hope that they keep it up and outsell COD.
EA have been pushing their game earlier and harder, because they have to. Expect Activision to throw down a huge advertising blitz later on though. The tide will certainly shift. Would be cool if BF3 did better but, the tables will likely turn later on.
Current Americas Pre-orders: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (X360) - 388,667 Battlefield 3 (X360) - 184,552 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (PS3) - 178,983 Battlefield 3 (PS3) - 103,778 http://www.vgchartz.com/pre...
hahahaha my ninja
You must be braindead if you believe this. MW3 will outsell BF3 by at least 5 million on both consoles. So a 10 million win is guaranteed. Why is HHG hating on Activision and supporting EA? Not that this would change anything, I am just curious. P.S. I will buy Witcher 2, Gears of War 3 and Halo this fall. Might pick one of those up in the future
Dirty are u slow? No disrepect but nowhere in the videos show Hip Hop hating on Activision. In fact he CLEARLY said MW3 will be awesome and fun to play and Im pretty sure he will be buying it also along with BF3. That doesn't sound like hating to me.
Check his older videos. He is favoring EA over Activision. I think there was an article about Medal of Honor and Black Ops. We all know how that turned out.
Please put "Hiphopgamer" in the title so I know not to click on the link.
Next time you don't notice its a Hip Hop article, but when you find out...DONT COMMENT. Just keep it moving. [email protected] Jack Just like you don't like Hip Hop, I don't like when people comments are not related to the topic. You clearly don't like him for whatever reason, you just have to show it by commenting.
If "Hiphopgamer" was in the title, I wouldn't have to enter the article at all. Both of our problems would be solved. Logic is an amazing thing.
"You clearly don't like him for whatever reason, you just have to show it by commenting." His reason is pretty obvious, and it's a pretty acceptable request. HHG dupes people with his bs titles all the time, and after a while, it starts to piss people off because 98% of the time, it's bullsh**. If he would simply put HHG at the end of his articles, then there would be no problem, and people could ignore his crap.
@Vickers500....You make NO sense. I quote...HHG dupes people with his bs titles all the time, and after a while, it starts to piss people off because 98% of the time, it's bullsh**. If he would simply put HHG at the end of his articles, then there would be no problem, and people could ignore his crap....End Quote....Do you realized you mentioned the word IGNORE? Meaning just ignore him. Posting on his articles no matter if he puts HHG in the title or not is NOT ignoring him. Dude maybe you guys should read who submitted the article because its right on the front page. Just ignore it when u see its from HHG. Just like you feel its wasting ur time reading his crap...well reading your crap is wasting my time.
@ Joni-Ice I hope you realize how hypocritical and moronic you are.
"Do you realized you mentioned the word IGNORE?" Yeah, that's my goal here, but this jackass clown who has the gall to call himself a journalist makes that pretty difficult. I'm trying to FULLY ignore him, yet he makes it impossible. I see an exciting new headline on n4g, but it ends up simply being an extremely misleading and often false title/article from hhg, so I (along with others) get pissed and post a comment while we're here to tell HHG to make it clearly known that it is him who is posting the article by putting it in the title. I suppose if I simply left his articles after I clicked on the title, then I would save some time, but not nearly as much time as time as I would if HHG would simply post his name in all his articles, so I could avoid him all together. That's why people post comments complaining. If you can't understand that, then I don't know what else to say to make you understand.
I dont know... it's possible his peoples at Gamestop are also pushing BF3 inflated pre-order numbers to him and hip hop gamer. Then you have VG Chartz (take it for what it's worth) showing MW3 way ahead of BF3 with pre-order numbers. VG Chartz - http://www.vgchartz.com/pre...
How the hell do you compare a game franchise that releases a new product annually to a video game console that you buy only once? Obviously the number of units sold for the Wii go down over time. You don't have to buy the damn thing year-after-year. And no, the Kinect nor the Move cut into the Wii market. And BF3 will most likely not cut into the MW3 market. Not every gamer only buys one game a year. Oh, one more thing. MW3 has something(as of now) that BF3 doesn't have; the casuals.
Tell the casuals to piss off and buy BC3, what the hell is wrong with them? It's not like you need fighter pilot reactions to play it. I hope BF 3 sells more, everyone will benefit, as A) DICE get regognition they deserve for their excellence, and B)IW get a major kick up the arse, hopefully forcing them to going back to actual good games like CoD4
Your "B" reason will most likely never happen seeing as just about everyone that was at IW and worked on CoD4 is with Respawn now.
