Not only Gamestop says that Battlefield 3 is currently outselling Modern Warfare 3 in terms of pre orders. So does Amazon.
Just think. Theres a whole platform waiting to preorder on steam. I can say with confidence that the pc community is backing bf3. We are set to speak with our wallets. Where you at ps3 gamers?
It ain't gonna happen bro...Mw3 will be the best selling game 2011. I'm not even gonna bother on that game, Mw2 was awesome and all but I doubt its a better game than Battlefield. :/
yep i think it's gonna do really well on PC. will be my first combat shooter on PC regardless, i honestly just hope a lot of people take the opportunity to play BF3. i believe it's going to be an amazing game.
I think that MW3 will outsell BF3 but it won't outsell Black Ops or MW2 this is the start of the decline
Don't know where the other PS3 gamers at but I pre-ordered BF3 as soon as it was availble for order. I do have to say a lot of gamers don't pre-order anything though. Only the people that want to get special content usually pre-order.
@black-Helghast your correct, mw3 will be the best selling, and its inferior to battlefield, but activision knows that and its why the last 2 call of dutys have been for sale at £25 upon launch in many shops.
@evrfighter Oh now the PC crowed needs us shitty little console owners. lol
@evrfighter - And 360 gamers too.
battlefield 3 deserves it.
True gamers awakening
Haven't bought a BF ever.. I played Vietnam at college for a time though. However this time I think BF will own CoD. Haven't preordered but as soon as my wallet says hi I will buy it!
that mw3 will outsell bf3, pre orders dont mean jack
Battlefield 3 will gut modern warfare like the pig it it... "gets on top of jeep with flamethrower" VIVA LA REVOLUTION
"I'll take pleasure in gutting you...boy!"
Wasn't that on The Rock ?
http://www.youtube.com/watc... ^I loved that scene! http://www.youtube.com/watc... Zeus' Butthole was equally funny on topic: It doesn't matter about sales. It's all about the game play and I don't doubt for a millisecond which game will be the better game. Battlefield 3
"I can say with confidence that mw3 will outsell bf3, pre orders dont mean jack" And I can say with confidence, BF3 will be a much better game than MW3. Sales don't mean jack to gamers.
well untill BF3 is sitting in my ps3 or xbox I will reserve my judgment because up untill now infinity ward has never disapointed me. where as bf2 got boring within a few weeks and before you say im a noob ive neen gaming for over 20 years.
@hennessey86 infinity ward has never disapointed me. ----------------------------- ---------------- Sorry burst your bubble freind but other than the name that activision has got the team has left. the major players any hows. its done by a new team that only took 12months to create google it, unlike bf3 taken a hell of alot longer not just the game but the engine too.
I think pre orders mean something, just not in this case. BF3 is well known in the gaming community, and they are the ones more likely to pre-order their games. Call of Duty is still a much stronger brand outside of the usual gaming community than BF3 is, and those outside of the usual gaming community don't pre-order their game as much. Look at Madden and FIFA, both of these games sell extremely well every year, yet, I presume they're not being pre-ordered all that much.
wasn't there already an article about this a couple days ago?
That was about Gamestop
The quality is just so much higher in bf3.
Anyone who believes this is just kidding themselves. MW3 will destroy BF3 thats just a fact. People who buy MW3 don't preorder games anyway the day 1 in store sales of MW3 will likely be double that of BF3.
If they don't preorder, why do they queue up at midnight every year?
People who buy MW3 don't pre-order, because they're all mainly 10 year olds...
They gotta get their mammy's to buy it for them
maybe in sales but in gaming quality and production value BF wins everytime....which is what really matters in the end numbers don't mean shit
I don't belive this is true, and if it is its probably only on Gamestop/Amazon.
Bobby Kotick and activision must be shitting their pants now
Preoders mean nothing. The actual sales are what count. MW3 will sell the most of course but I don't really care who sells the most. I just know that BF3 is the game I'm buying.
to bad gears 3 got more preorders then both games just saying
That's because it's going to be game of the year. The beta was absolutely amazing.
i think tht when the game comes out not alot of peolpe are gonna want to buy mw3 and battle field3
That b/c the game post to come out during spring. Had a longer period of time to preorder it.
Great news. If Battlefield sold more than MW3, it would shock everyone who thought it couldn't but I believe it will. This game also hasn't been on Steam yet.
I hope BF3 does beat out MW3 this year. Hopefully that competition will force Activision's hand and push them to produce a new updated game engine, etc...
I wait and get the call of duty at midnight every year. They usually do a party thing at our gamestop. So I'd say its the same way nationwide...
I know VG Chartz is not 100% accurate, but rather more of a rough estimator. As of last week they show MW3 at roughly 250,000 units ahead of BF3 for pre-orders.
This sort of topic scares Call of duty fanboys
Anyone know if you can like take cover in this game. kinda like ghost recon or rainbow six vegas games
I think if they were to do this and include this option on multiplayer....even more people would play...
As soon as i see xbox gameplay and a decent comparison of both xbox and ps3 i will know what im getting it for. Id love to get the pc version but i cant afford a decent computer.
I won't be surprised if the people that have been buying MW3 switch to BF3. The main demographic for their sales are generated by a young audience that only buy what their friends are buying. And their friends usually by what the older guys are buying because they want to be "cool" All in all, if this game picks up enough steam and the older audience that played Black Ops, MW2 etc. switch... a good chunk of sales goes with them...
In the long run it would be better for COD to lose cause then it would make them push out a better product or maybe rethink the annual release timeline.
I pre-ordered BF3 the other day. Won't be getting MW3, I'm bored with the series. I bought 3 COD games in 4 years and none of them matched COD4 in SP or MP.
Online stats are pointless,they change on an hourly basis. Stupid article.
