Update: Here's an analysis showing how Modern Warfare 3 will beat Battlefield 3 based on the number of sold units worldwide, and the reason why EA is still smiling. If you have any comments, show it on the discussion below.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3........is KING of the Sales!!!
Who cares? Just enjoy the damn games. I'm happily enjoying BF3 and will be doing the same with MW3 soon.
agreed, dumb to even think BF will come close
The same game that has been king of sales....Funny thing is people are quick to downplay BF3 because of is online issues then overlook COD's online issues year in and year out.....its a COD generation
Not to sound like a fanboy here but COD MW3 will have way more sales hands down, just go look at the other cod titles sales figures. COD is the Apple of the gaming world. BF3 sold 5mil within first week(not 10mil like EA claimed). MW3 will sell more than likely sell 15mil+ within the first week. If Black ops can sell 5mil within the first 24hours(US&UK), beating MW2 sells, what can u expect for MW3?
I believe EA is happy where they are right now, considering Medal of Honor sales was a disappointment last year, and they manage to have BF3 today as their fastest-selling game (based from the company's history).
EA didn't say they sold 10 million, they said they shipped 10 million, they sold 5 million in the first week which will be roughly under half of the shipment once you take into account digital sales. It would get through the 10 million that they shipped sometime next year probably. Like you said though, it can't touch COD though. The install base of every console that COD is releaed on has had a year to grow from when black ops was released and that did 5 million in one day. Good lord we are going to see some silly numbers once it gets released.
Sales sales sales..I never knew N4G has share holders /s. Just enjoy ur damn game!!!
I don't care
MW3 Obbiously and i just hate the bloody game i find it dull. However it is the current generations "must have game" its the cool one for kids to talk about.
Talk about? I think you'll find it's the "cool game" for kids to whine about.
In sales? MW3. In overall quality? BF3. /article
Why did you comment on quality? The discussion is upon sales. Bubbles down.
all you want. The truth remains whether you like it or not.
@KonaBro Why do you claim this as true? MW3 isn't out yet. Quality wise I think that comes down to opinion in what you are looking for in a FPS.Cod is popular because of it's fast pace gameplay.You can sit down and play a game in a few mins I tend to play a bit of cod before leaving for work because of this reason alone.BF is more slow paced and team oriented(even though no one uses team work really).I like BFBC2 better then BF3 though. I don't get the haters under the lag and disconnections the cod games are solid games for what they are,and the MW series has been fun both offline and online. just like you don't play BF like it's cod,You don't play cod like it's BF.There are both completely diffrent games the only realy things they have in common is modern settings and they are FPS'ers.
*Facepalm* I know there's a rivalry, but you guys are competing over sells now? I'm just going to stay out of this, in fact....*runs away*
I don't care about sales as long as the game is addicting and fun that's all that matters to me
playing it now on my modded 360 shit blows away battlefield 3 hands down!
i'm so done with cod my sale wont b there. i luv BF3
After being a BF fan since I was 10 with 1942, I actually hope CoD destroys BF3. I'm just sick of EA's shit every time they release a game. I can't even play the BF3 campaign because it crashes every time, and I frequently have it crash when loading multiplayer games. Today though I hit the last straw, "Game cannot connect to EA online backend" everytime I join a server. Its beyond a joke now and I want my money back, so EA will be getting an angry call from me tomorrow demanding a refund.
saleswise mw3 will triumph, i guess. shame that neither will get sold copy to me.hate unemployment.next year i will try getting both though
I say BF3, because alot of people have bought it and paying $60 for each game is going to be hard. Had MW3 came out first, Id say MW3.
MW3 obviously, BUT thats only because the 8 year olds playing it (no offense to those of you of age) cant play battlefield because there's strategy involved. Again: if your over 16 and you play MW3, this isnt for you
Stop trolling, the number of 8 year olds playing CoD would definetly be less than 0.5%, realistically probably less than 0.01% of the total population.
i dont understand. i wasnt trolling, i was stating a fact. MW is filled with people that arent of age. Kids that con their parents into buying the game for them. Those young kids dont play Battlefield because it's too difficult for them. Thats why i dont enjoy playing MW (because its too arcade) MW will beat Battlefield for that reason, Battlefields fanbase is generally older and smaller.
LOL what.Don't tell us or anyone what to play who do you think you are ??? you guys just never stop. If your going to spew BS..(see video)
i was saying the COMMENT wasnt for you...just like a teenager; quick to get hot and put up the dukes...
sohaben I don't even understand what you are trying to even say in that reply.If you are implying Im 8 years old or a teenager? I am not sure,but I assurse you I am none of the above.You are trying to tell anyone over age 16 that they shouldn't play COD and I am said "Don't tell us or anyone what to play who do you think you are ???". If I was ever to get "hot" or quick and put up my "dukes" it's agenst people like you who think you can tell everyone what to do and play. I have seen plenty of kids on Battlefield and Battlefield is not a sim it's still an arcade shooter just like cod.If you like COD or not I don't care,but you don't have the right to tell anyone what to play or not to play.Don't be so ignorant if people want to play a game you don't like who cares let them play no one is forcing you.
