Ahead of Battlefield 3's eagerly anticipated launch, Electronic Arts has started to put up massive adverts for DICE's shooter.
Ah yes, looks like we're set to see EA and Activision's spending go crazy over the next few months.
i would email them and ask if they would like to put massive poster over the front of my house but they would probably refuse.
haha that would be awesome ... bubbles
Tbh why do they even need to advertise.. anyone who is anyone has heard of Call of Duty :)
*Gets popcorn* gonna eat this popcorn MJ at the movies style (youtube it if you havent seen the clip) it'd be funny if EA took all the ad spots Activision was gonna use, LOL!! "wtf guys thats our spot!! >:(" Agree or Disagree if you Agree
what was it 50million on advertisments. yeh well i hope EA does well they deserve it. its not like the game was rushed out. not to mention working on a complete engine that takes alot time too. ive enjoyed the pre alpha still am enjoying it. not great at it lol ill edmit i get more deaths then kills. but its pre alpha learning the map. and got no add'ons on my weapons that makes it any better yet.
The rating system on this site seems broken. 28 comments and up to 440 degrees? Do threads about these games always start at 400 degrees?
Saw one is Portsmouth last week, its spreading...
Yeah they've had one up around by where I live for a couple of weeks now.
I want this game now please!
Actually the Cod Mw3 ads was there first! They just painted the BF3 ads over them. Not fair I know but that's how it works!
Shutt it! Let uss enjoy it!
lol good luck this EA. advertise Battlefield fanboys wherever I go, forums, blogs, articles and always make sure promote Battlefield game against the Juggernaut of MW3 ads..
You see.... YOU are the reason games like COD stay shit for over 6 years and use the same copy and paste formula. Because people like you in this world nothing will ever get improved! That's why people are moving to Bf3 because they actually put money in making NEW tech and engine to create BETTER games, next gen games to be infact. Unlike cod and it's out dated engine and old tech!
A few have went up in Edinburgh over the last few weeks.
i live in new zealand and the only game ads i ever see are on rare buses and they are only for the biggest sellers, there aren't even ads on tv let alone gaming programmes on tv.
Advertising seems more aimed at pissing Activision off, rather than actually selling the game, haha
Wow, what a flamebait title. This article has nothing to do with Modern Warfare 3.
What they need to do is release some damned official system requirements.
ive been seeing these for the past month, which is crazy for a games that is not out for a few more months.
They had television ads running in April, even. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I've seen loads of LA Noire ads on London underground (of similar size to the BF 3 one). Not seen any MW 3 ads yet. Game ads on the underground are great imo.
They had BF3 posters where I live!!! I must be the only gamer within 5 miles lol. Go EA!
Ive only seen MW3 posters where I live in the south west UK. Yet to see any big BF posters, but I know they're coming. Seeing as BF comes out the month before CoD, BF will start rolling out the ads first, then CoD will steal people's minds at the last minute, launching a huge campaign a few weeks before BF's release to get the impulse buyers to get CoD instead. Not many people can afford to buy both Im suspecting in these crap financial times, so Im guessing the majority will fall on CoD. Which is good. More fun for us BF fans.
I think it will come down to which is advertised more. If a product is always in peoples faces they are more likely to check it out or buy it.
the only game ad i've seen was in santa monica and that was for red dead redemption the only game advertising in my town is the gamestop window
Im sure I will end up seeing around Belfast on buses!
True, I remember seeing alot of Deadspace 2 adverts on our buses. A rare thing to see.
Your from Northern Ireland too ? Aye I remember seeing a few dead space 2 adverts too. There has been a few game adverts on the buses but they could probably use that massive screen they have outside the city hall or something. All it does is show the BBC news channel
say do you really play a russian player? and i bet that redford will be forced to stay AGAIN lol
