Recent pre-order figures for the game are pacing it ahead of last year's smash hit, Call of Duty: Black Ops. Does that mean that Battlefield 3 will sell more than Black Ops?
It's a start to possible good things for BF3.
This is good. Hopefully this fall I will be saying "the king is dead, long live the king." Oh and I'll throw in a "King of the North" just for fun.
doesnt really mean much, i have a bunch of friends who will pick up MW3 yet they havent and wont pre-order the gamE im pretty sure thats how it is with the majority of those who will buy the game
i think ppl are finally seeing battlefield 3 as a better product then modern warfare good to know cant wait for battlefield3 on PS3
Or it is because it is an actual sequel for Battlefield 2, people have been waiting ages for BF3 to be announced/confirmed. Instead we got BF:BC1 and 2, even though these games are great. But everyone knows that the actual games like BF1, 2 and 3 are the ones that are new and improved. Eg Better engine, graphics etc. As for your statement... I dont really care cos I will eventually play both games. Obviously I will be getting BF3 first :)
Your right,bf3 is better than mw3,but it will never outsell it :C I mean you can ask all your friends in high school,they will be taking about cod all fucking day long,im getting both,bf3 for my pc,and mw3 for my xbox
If it did then that would be unbelievable and would certainly justify the amount EA are spending on marketing.
Solid pre order numbers are always a good sign. But outselling Black Ops? I don't think so, Black Ops is one of the very few games that can get less than 1 million pre orders and go on to sell 20 million. I find it very difficult to honestly believe Battlefield 3 even has a chance at over taking Black Ops lifetime sales. That doesn't mean BF3 is a bad game, but COD has a very large following. I can see BF3 hitting 10 million on consoles alone, just not 20 million.
thats great news. I doubt it will outsell black ops, but, it might outsell MW3? thats all that matters lol.
The thing is that BF3 will deliver a True Next Generation Military FPS for the Gamers, especially for PC Version. MW3 is not even worth to mention. Looks like a generation below from BF3.
no black ops sucked balls
. Battlefield will start of great, a designed move by EA. Then it will be traded in by the millions as well when MW3 launches. That is why they are launching beside COD MW3. They are parasites and as the game play that has leaked clearly shows...completely out matched by MW3. They did the same thing with MOH...it will end the same as well. Paid $9.99 for MOH a couple of months ago...lol Activision is giving EA-Dice all the rope they need to hang themselves. The Battlefield Multi-player is broken with numerous bugs, in particular the lighting that looks launch title like, clunky animations and depth of field similar to something you find in a last gen game...O_o...does anybody really think this will beat MW3...lol... http://youtu.be/0MgQMoPwGwM If MW3 looked like that, COD gamers would freak out.
Actually, I think BF3 looks better than ALL the CODs made.
*If MW3 looked like that, COD gamers would freak out.* Yea to bad that will never happen cuz there's gullible idiots who buy it every year :D hence no reason for crapovision to make a new engine.Hell i bet next gen it'll still look as crappy as right now.
Your avatar gives a clear picture of who you are and how you perceive things lol.
"lighting that looks launch title like, clunky animations and depth of field similar to something you find in a last gen game." I know your a troll but come on....not even MW3 trolls believe this
"does anybody really think this will beat MW3...lol..." In terms of quality? Graphical capabilities? Fun factor? Replay value? Abso-friggin'-lutely. That's just me, though. Oh, and I really lol'd at this in particular: "The Battlefield Multi-player is broken with numerous bugs, in particular the lighting that looks launch title like, clunky animations and depth of field similar to something you find in a last gen game" Seriously. Pure comedy gold, man.
I wish it was possible for people to have a negative bubble count.
I'm trying, it doesnt work
BF3 already has COD bent over, and it's about to penetrate.
What?! People who can actually think for themselves over sheep? I won't believe it til I see it on launch day.
I hope its because gamers are maturing and not because BF3 is going too casual.
Casual gamers buy CoD. Casual gamers don't pre-order.
sorry dice. no free-for-all, no buy.
Free for All in Battlefield, lol.
Like its not possible? They already have squad deathmatch 16 player map sizes. It could be done if it was desired.
Possible, but out of place. What about Medics? They don't have anyone to revive. The game is made from the ground up as a team-based, class-based shooter. It wouldn't fit in and wouldn't really feel like Battlefield.
I agree. Its out of place. Stranger things have happened though.
We've been kidding ourselves for two years straight when it comes to FPS games out-selling Call of Duty, sadly none of them have been able to. Now with MW3 being arguably the biggest Call of Duty game to come out and Black Ops destroying records last year, I don't think so. Also pre-order numbers say nothing as the sales numbers are often much larger for AAA games.
You guya are all morons...ea is going the route of fortza...... The only way they get attention is by saying hey come look at us were bettet then granturismo....which is very sad and only proves how dominat GT is....and in this case COD ... bf will never be bettet or sell better then any call of duty.. Same with fortza and GT... Just make your dam game and hope people buy it....stop talking about COD
Please learn how to use a period in your sentences. Thanks.
Virtual typed paragraphs menstruate? i put a "Comma" in my sentences =P
It's about time. This game deserves to be on top.
Last time I played a great COD game was COD4:MW and that was back in 2007...
These are current VGChartz (in the neigborhood) pre-order numbers. http://www.vgchartz.com/pre... So Battlefield 3 is outpacing Black Ops, but it looks as if MW3 is killing both of these titles with pre-orders. Again, these are just pre-order numbers. Also, I still can't figure out how the hell Black Ops is still hanging out in the top 10 NPD software sales at #6 last month.
I have a feeling that BF3 will outsell MW3.... because it has the best graphics on the console to date
Obviously gamers are finding there brains these days
I think most people are hesitant to preorder mw3 after black ops because of the many problems that game had at launch. I bought black ops day 1 for ps3 and it was possibly the buggiest game I had played in a very long time. Couldn't play continuously online for more than 10min or so. So I know I'll be waiting until after release before I even consider buying. With battlefield on the other hand I feel pretty safe preordering because I've never had problems with battlefield games.
