Wedbush industry watcher estimates EA's push for Call of Duty competitor, projects 2 million sales for Star Wars: The Old Republic.
I think if it's only that much they can get that back on opening night, if the martketing actually works out. Honestly, I think a title of this magnitude doesn't need as much marketing as other games though.
I think most people are leaning towards BF3 anyway, simply because they're a little bored of CoD. However, both games look good, and no doubt Activision will bring out the big-bucks to market MW3.
I know I'm excited to play a military shooter that isn't CoD.
Its funny cause that's like $50 million less than M$ spends marketing Halo. Hmm I wonder if they're gonna give out $1000 gift bags to all reviewers also?
@M-Easy M$ the masters of bribery
Pachter always makes pretty big claims, though I'm hoping he is right about this one; considering Battlefield 3 is the game I am most looking forward to this year.
