Call of Duty Still Dominates Battlefield 3 | The Gamer Studio

For the week of October 24th, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 were still the most played games on Xbox LIVE. This has to be a disappointment to EA as Battlefield 3 released this week, as it finished in third.

If you want to compare Call of Duty Black Ops to Battlefield 3. You can right now say that Battlefield 3 has under preformed at this moment. Black Ops sold a record 5 million copies on the first day and quickly became best selling video games ever. Battlefield 3 sold five million in the first week but you have to imagine that EA was expecting more, especially since Modern Warfare 3 was in two weeks.

Angry Birds sold more than castle crashers, but we all know castle crashers is a better game.

BF3 has become their best selling Battlefield, where is this guy getting "worst year for the Battlefield franchise".

Cosmit2436d ago

And MW3 has become the BEST selling CoD game. Not just from the CoD franchise, but from any other game.

bobrea2436d ago

Couldn't have said it better myself.

DonaldBeck2437d ago

yep, people smoke more tobacco than eat a daily serving of fruits, and both that i mentioned would be the same price.

What else is new? COD has always gotten the better review scores and has always sold better.

It's one of the rare cases where a game wins both quality and quantity.

BiggCMan2436d ago

Call of Duty hasn't been quality since 2007. And Battlefield has always had a more dedicated fan base, and on par, or even higher review scores than Call of Duty. Stop talking out of your ass.

COD4 was okay, but MW3 is the best in the series in my opinion. It's a complete game. How has Battlefield had a more dedicated fan base? The Battlefield games don't stay on the top 20 list for the whole year, the Battlefield games don't sport over 1 million unique players at a time.

You might want to check the scores on Metacritic. COD4 outdid Bad Company 1, MW2 outdid Bad Company 2 and MW3 has outdone Battlefield 3. So I don't think I'm talking out of anything. Do a little research kiddo.

It's no skin off my nose, I had a little time to school you son.

BiggCMan2436d ago

Kiddo.. Typical response. You realize that there are many other Battlefield games before Bad Company right, or perhaps you're to young to know that instead? MW3, best in the series?? Honestly, you are blinded by your love for the series to say that. The game is a complete mess, everything was copied over from the previous games in the series. No work was done on this trash, and they have the balls to call it a new game. MW3 is a disgrace to gaming. And before anyone thinks I haven't played it, check my damn trophies, I have like, 1. I still have my rental, and it is absolute trash.

Mw3 is the best in the series. Ha you've never played finest hour or two. That statement just clarified that you have no clue what your talking about. It's the worst in the series.

0neShot2436d ago

You sound like a broken record, another typical COD hater response that doesn't make any sense.

Cosmit2436d ago

The 3 times in a Row Record Shattering Numbers from CoD proves that it has a more dedicated fanbase.

In my opinion BF3 is the better game in terms of gameplay, gfx, and game modes. However I can see where sales are concerned why people obviously paint CoD in a better light.

TheFallenAngel2436d ago

Search and destroy and sabotage are awesome in CoD.

Clarence2435d ago

I didn't read it. I could look at the title and tell that it was garbage. Sales does not make a game great. If you compare any game sales to COD it underperforms. BF3 has sold well. What the title should read is "COD Donminates Sales but BF3 Is The Better Game."

MW3 is the same game as it was seven years ago. Nothing new. The developers have even recycled building structures. MW3 Donminates sales but just like reality tv, it's garbage.
