Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Will Generate Over $1.4 Billion in Q4

With the epic showdown between Electronic Arts’ Battlefield 3 and Activision’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 about to unfold, analysts predict that these two games will sell over $1.4 billion in revenue this fourth quarter. These two titles, alone, will generate 15% of total packaged videogame software sales for the quarter, according to Michael Pachter, videogame analyst, Wedbush Morgan Securities.

The story is too old to be commented.

1st Person Shooters reign supreme! I used to hate hate FPSs but this generation's shooters has turned me into a FPS freak. I pretty much play them all now. I have little interest in MW 2.2 though :P Its a rental at best. BF3 is gonna consume my life or lack there of after it releases.

Well said. However, I'm kinda hoping FPS's don't dominate the next generation too. That's one thing I give Sony credit for is differentiating themselves with multiple genres of games in their first party portfolio. (Any genre you can think of, Sony has a few games of.) I still love FPS's too, but I think by the time the PS4/720 come out, I'm gonna be tired of them. I'm already starting to get tired of them a little bit. I'm still gonna play the hell out of BF3 though. (And probably MW3 too.)

Agreed before this gen I never even touched a fps just didn't suit me and I hope next gen is alot more like the ps2 gen with a lot of plat formers and action games.

I expect the gaming industry to grow by a lot thanks to those 2 massive games.

And Skyrim, and Uncharted 3, and Batman: AC, and AC: Revelations, and Saints Row The Third, etc.
