NowGamer - HD console growth means both Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 can be a success according to EEDAR's Jesse Divnich.
It will undoubtedly be a huge success.
Yep. I think it will be too. Dice out did themselves on this one. I just hope EA doesn't screw it up.
BF3 is already a success and isn't even out yet!
@Peppino7 Something as hugely anticipated as BF3 will have some level of success.
sales will be big but some will return BF3 just because its not MW3 type of gameplay. alot of gamers will find out BF3 is not the game to be Rambo on
I'll be getting BF3 day one. I'll get MW3, but it can wait.
Same here. I'll buy both but I don't know if MW3 will be a day 1.
Lol at the disagrees you guys have: "they're not getting BOTH on day one!? WTF?!" They're both military fps with a single player side and a massive online component. Personally Im gonna snag MW3 first, but it all comes down to personal preference and the amount of $ you have at the time. You don't have to buy everything day 1, I promise they're gonna make more ;D
. EA is a parasite and like a parasite, it latches onto something else, bigger, better and stronger and in this case of EA-Dice Battlefield 3, COD is the peoples champ, having double the sales anything EA related, so EA decided to launch right along side the far better COD MW3 and try to get into that far, far bigger fan base with nothing more than lies as can be clearly seen by the leaked footage...Alpha means nothing, these graphics won't change 10 weeks out...the game is a mess... http://youtu.be/0MgQMoPwGwM It's no different setting up your store across the street from a better store and selling junk that looks the same but made in China or something. :/ The COD games actually keep their value so it doesn't matter if you buy it day one or month 6, it will still cost the same because it's QUALITY. Battlefield 3 will see a price cut immediately to try to stop the used sales of the game...it won't work. Battlefield 3 will have the stage for 2 weeks then it will be relegated to last place where it belongs and deserves. Wait until the " official " beta starts and the complaints come in...lol...I can't wait to hear the fanboys excuses. It's all been lies and the game won't look anything like the pre-E3 trailers...that is without a doubt. I heard the exact same thing about MOH last year and look what happen to MOH. I bought that game for $9.99 several months ago...lol...COD 4 still costs more then that and it released YEARS ago. EA games, especially the sports titles are one hit wonders.
wow no wonder you have 1 bubble.
Too bad everything infinity ward ever made was a rip off of all of dice's games. Bf 1942 came out before COd they copied them. BF2 brand new war game with unlocks,vehicles, and classes. Oh hear comes infinity ward again we like that idea too lets rip it off and run with it.
@Inside_out. just because you say the same thing on every cod vs bf article doesn't make it true. you usually get 9/10 disagrees so just give up already. Cod will sell more, cod is more popular but it is not superior, it is old and tired. you base your arguments on sales all the time, we get it, casual crowd likes cod, i say good on 'em, i don't care, as long as bf sells enough to get heaps of support then i am happy. you are like a religions nutter
battlefield always has the best gameplay and quality to of course it will be better
It doesn't take a lot to be a great success... all you need is marketing, and BF3 has that base covered.
so did duke
Honestly I'm starting to get annoyed by the BF fanboys, even more so than the call of duty fans. And this is coming from a gamer who doesn't like call of duty.
if you like the game. why do you care if it breaks record?
Because you might get a sequel that's even better. And the people who made that game you like so much get rewarded.
I have a feeling bf3 is going to sell way more copies than bf2 did and it will be a big success. Im looking forward to this definitely a day one purchase. I bought black ops day one but after black ops i wont be buying it day one and dnt knw if at all. I dont hate on COD i stil play mw2 and ops i just dnt like the way ops was sort of a down grade visually and how mw2 and ops had sooooo many glitches. Im done with them until they bring something new to the table in terms of visuals and gameplay.
I wish I had a job as an analyst, getting paid for stating the obvious would be great.
The job itself is a lot more complex....
I'm sure MW3 will sell a lot more than Battlefield 3 but i know i'll be playing BF3 multiplayer for a very very long time. I just don't enjoy the mp that CoD has.
Kill this CoD disease
i just wish console version of bf3 had bigger mp player amount.i mean sixty four on pc sounds so sweet...even sth around forty would be great,damn it...oh well...still gonna get it for my ps3.
