OMG no way /s.

We all knew it wouldn't outsell them anyone who thought that was very delusional.Just cuz it sells alot don't mean it's a great game you can polish a turd but it's still a turd.Quantity<quality

NYC_Gamer2234d ago

many people enjoy call of duty and think the franchise is good.....just like i think saint's row is horrible but others would disagree.

dangert122234d ago

I don't like the both of those...the irony lol

awi59512234d ago

They dont know how many digital copies sold.

What's ironic about you not liking either game dangert12???

I don't mind Cod. I will always like BF much more but I've played CoD since the very first one on PC so it has its place.

I just wish they'd get a new engine. The one they have is really really old...

I dont like COD at all but even i know its not a bad game man. its still one of the top multiplayer games with BF, Halo and COD. just becuase we dont like it doesnt mean its bad. you want a bad shooter there is an endless list and COD is not on there......

i do agree completely though with this "Just cuz it sells alot don't mean it's a great game you can polish a turd but it's still a turd.Quantity<quality"

just dont think it applies here

BF3 still sold more on PC then Black ops and MW2 ^^ who cares if millions of kiddie nubs like to play CoD cause it makes them feel cool, it's because of them that CoD will always sell more regardless of how good/bad the game is, their parents will dish the money.

You know how cool you are if you wear Nike shoes? Their cheaply made but people will still buy and wear'em because of the name!

It's funny I was surprised to see the first few comments actually being sensible and fair for once,but then I saw your comment...
For the record most of my friends are getting the game, funny thing is we're all in our 2nd last year of university. So we're all 20+ I guess an 'adult' is a 'kiddie' now right? Though frankly I'd rather be a 'kiddie' than someone who uses the words like 'kiddie', and 'nub'(whatever the hell that is).

@Trunkz

We get it, you don't like CoD. Now shut up.

Your whole comments just shows how immature you are. You damn hipster.

Yeah just the same as people prefer to play Laser tag, instead of going Paint Balling...... Correct, yes?

Kewl_Kat2234d ago

i honestly haven't read any other comparison just like yours. it's a pretty interesting analogy. both fun, basically comes down to preference. i would just take a guess that paintballing is to battlefield 3 just as laser tag is to modern warfare 3? :D

ShottySnipa4172234d ago

Didn't CoD XP have a paintball arena though?... XD

Oschino19072234d ago

Cod = speed ball paintball or indoor laser tag
BF = outdoor paintball or military style outdoor laser tag

Kenshin_BATT0USAI2234d ago

I'm more of a laser tag person, paintballs are painful. LOL

Good analogy

marioPSUC2234d ago

I think everyone knew it wouldnt sell more than COD.....
But it did sell a lot in its launch week and broke sale records for EA so its doing really good

BeaArthur2234d ago

Not surprised by that. Better doesn't always mean more. I'm sure plenty of people were intimidated by the game and just decided to wait for the familiar.

Fishy Fingers2234d ago

Nobody expected it to, including EA.
