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?

Black-Helghast2458d ago

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. :/

joydestroy2458d ago (Edited 2458d ago )

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.

malamdra2458d ago

I think that MW3 will outsell BF3 but it won't outsell Black Ops or MW2

this is the start of the decline

MWong2458d ago

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.

DasTier2458d ago

@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.

battlefield 3 deserves it.

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!

^I loved that scene!
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

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.

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.

RastaCC2458d ago

wasn't there already an article about this a couple days ago?

red2tango2458d ago

That was about Gamestop

Supman2458d ago

The quality is just so much
higher in bf3.
