Battlefield 3 is here and the results are in. Most critics and gamers are enjoying the game, but the acclaim doesn't seem high enough to make Activision shudder in its boots.
BF3 does not have to eat into the sales of call of duty to be successful
The plan was to steal a chunk of consumers, not totally obliterate them. We'll see what happens though.
I don't think MW3 will loose many fans but I do know that BF3 will get a lot of players coming over to play..
They lost me years ago.. :)
Not releasing on Steam while putting such great emphasis on the PC version was derp. Could have been taking pre-orders for months, given away TF2 items, etc.
"I believe DICE and EA fell short. A few old-fashioned drawbacks and lingering issues from the beta have held BF3 back, and you know, I have a feeling MW3 isn't going to feel BF3's bite." What lingering issues from the BETA?? This game should eat slightly into the FPS marketshare. But to compare the poor sales of R3 to BF3 ... really? Battlefield has a solid following throughout the years...Resistance..not so much!
