EA has given a lot of incentives to pre-order Battlefield 3, and pre-orders have now topped 700,000 units.
Doesnt bother me how many they sell.All im interested in is that i got a copy waiting to be posted. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Always good with lots of support when it comes to multiplayer centric games though. Can't wait! Bring on the beta!!
If BF3 was out selling MW3 your comment would be different. Im getting MW3 over BF3. I was planning to get both but Im cheap and their release dates are too close.
Source link: http://www.vgchartz.com/pre... 360 version: 482,873 PS3 version: 214,061 PC version: ???????
so this is across consoles only and 360 is leading the ps3 version? suprising add 2-3x that for the pc version
Doubt that very highly. Care to show me a big blockbuster game that has sold 2-3x more on PC than on console?
Why is it surprising that the 360 is leading in pre-orders? The 360 has always had a shooter-centric user-base. (That isn't to say that people on PSN don't enjoy them some CoD.)
battlefields main audience is on PC i would be surprised if it sold less tbh
BFBC2 sold about the same on the 360 and PC, so I'd expect BF3 on the PC to sell roughly the same as the 360, if not more.
and EA favor more of PS3 thn Xbox
360 more than double that of ps3 even without footage.
looks like those math lessons are really paying off.
Good for Dice. I still need to pre-order mine too... on PC of course. Too bad PC sales figures aren't released, I bet it's a lot.
Preorders mean nothing to me. Games in my console > preorder numbers. As a matter of fact, lent in my pocket > preorder numbers.
You pocket is fasting?
My pocket is empty because of all these games. Just got Deus Ex:HR and it's the bees knees!! This year has been the absolute best year for new games for me. 2011 > all other years for games for me.
I hear ya, man. Im playing it right now. I had to give u shit cause u said lent, not lint and lent is when catholics fast once a year...lol bubs mate
i though PS3 would be higher than that tbh.
PS3 also has MW3, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, etc.... The sells are split up.
valid point i suppose ps3 gamer do have a wider choice
And MW3 won't be available on the 360? Both consoles got a great line up of multiplatform games this year. Also i think exlcusives dont really matter in comparison. It's not like R3 and U3 are really going to outweigh halo and gears in sales. The sales are split up on both consoles. It's just that the 360 userbase favors shooters more. It doesn't matter which console sells more copies of bf3. All that matters is that bf3 snatches a market share of cod. More competition means better games in the future.
Wow dude... I was just saying. There are other exclusives coming out too I was just naming the bigger ones. Exclusives don't really matter? Lets forget that you ever said such nonsense. Sure those won't sell massive numbers like GT5, COD, or even Battlefield immediately(UC2 did go on to sell over 5 million) but it doesn't mean it won't be a more competitive market. Simple fact is more games = more spread out purchases.
Me too, considering they've only shown the PS3 version and not the Xbox 360 version.
I'll preorder this week or next
Sales wise, COD is going to destroy BF3.
Captain Obvious has arrived. And who cares? Not like it'll be better or the same as the last either.
I really care actually, really really really care. Nah, I don't, but I must say that I thought it was going to be a bit closet than this. ^Captain dickhead
And the only people that will care are CoD fanboys and stockholders. I'll be too busy playing Conquest mode to care.
Oh yeah no doubt. The kids love COD. I, myself don't hate it, but BF3 is pushing the FPS genre forward. COD fans can't say the same about their game.
Right, only kids play COD... That argument is complete bullshit. There's going to be just as many annoying little brats running around BF3 as MW3.
@blink3020 Really? Do you honestly believe that? It's common knowledge that kids like CoD. Why are you so defensive about it? CoD is a pick-up-and-play game, there's no denying that. Sure, you can practice and reach a higher skill echelon, but it's still a noob friendly game. BF3 is not noob friendly. If you don't know how to fly the chopper, I WILL teamkill you out of the sky. Give it to someone that knows how to fly. The maps are generally bigger and that means more snipers. You can't just waltz out into the open during a full sprint.
Not this time...It's Battlefield's time to shine. Battlefield keeps chipping CoD's userbase just like CoD did to Medal of Honor. That time is now! DrakBlack you have the bridge!
PS3 preorded :) Anyone have info on those retail exclusive incentives? I got mine from amazon.
I think eight Dog Tags and the Back To Karkland DLC for free but that is available everywhere.
How the fuck do you disagree with a question? Thanks neonlight45. I hope its more than just dog tags by release itme
Preordered on Origin FTW. Sept Beta access!!!!!
Hell yeah I have all 3 and I'm getting my game on the P.C through Origins FTW. I wouldn't be satisfied playing 24 players multiplayer on console. I'll just buy MW3,Assassins Creed Rev, Gears3 for my 360 (my Ps3 will be collecting dust). Oh yeah Skyrim and Batman A.C for Pc also.
I'll be doing the same but spread out between my PS3 and my 360. I dont get much time to play though as I deploy within a month of BF3 releasing. Sucks!
@AO1JMM God Bless you and thanks for fighting for our country.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/... Pc version is bestselling on amazon preorders. so id say add 300,000. Way more PC gamers will go through origin to get early beta access as well. Lots of gamers dont even have dvd drives so this is still a small percent of total pc sales.
I state a fact with a source backing it up. I didn't say it was bestselling version overall and I get a disagree?
damn, I still havent pre ordered mine...
lol this is in the americas only. With europe I estimate over 2.5 million including the pc version. I still don't get why people get surprised when the ps3 preorders are lower in the americas where xbox has a huge lead over it???
With all the PC pre-orders, no doubt BF3 already has 1 million pre-orders. Might even top 1.5 million before its release.
Meh, the only game I have ever pre-ordered was GTA IV. I'll just go inside the store and pick up my copy like always.
