GB : EA hypes up Battlefield 3 at GamesCom
agreed, the ONLY reason mw3 will sell better than bf3, is because kids 7-13 buy cod. they think its "cool" like the big kids or something.
No. MW3 will outsell BF3 because the franchise a large and diverse install base that has come to know and love the style of play that is featured in COD games.
By style of play I assume you mean noob/casual friendly, because that's why it sells so well. It's easy to just pick up and play without giving much thought to... well... anything.
So a game has to be hard to play in order to be good?
@ creatchee Not at all, but COD has become a shallow cesspit of accessibility. And as long as Activision is pulling devs togeher to make games under that umbrella, things will never change.
I like how he said "MW experience ever:" lol. I sure hope it is though.
Seeing as how he's behind Battlefield3, I'd say that's a pretty credible source. >.>
And I shall be experiencing it with 63 other people online!!! o_0
u mean 64 ma dude.
No he's the 64th player, ma dude.
haha He can't count Oh I love N4G :)
I just hope it looks good on consoles, bfbc2 had screen tearing like a mofo.
Battlefield 3 is just call of duty , with killzone graphics. We all no MW3 will destroy bf3 in sales....EVERYONE BUYS CALL OF DUTY..on bbm and facebook all you see is ppl saying "playing blackopps" "playing modern warefare" and thats males and females
"Battlefield 3 is just call of duty , with killzone graphics." Read this back when Battlefield is out and maybe THEN you can comprehend how stupid that statement is.
Edit: sry replied to the wrong person lol
Battlefield3 is Call of Duty with Killzone graphics. So then what is MW3? Call of Duty with Call of Duty graphics? O.o
Exactly. COD isn't trying to be anything but itself. Meaning COD regardless of what fanboys think know it is the top game to beat. EA has come out and said BF3 was made to beat MW3. I can trully give two sh*ts about hype. I will be buying both games regardless. The facts are: COD is the best FPS sales wise and sales reflects the popularity. Regardless if it is a 7 year old playing it or 60. It is the most popular franchise to play on the 360 and PS3. Backed up by each companies data that reflects this. The game is still in the top ten in the US and other markets around the world. Mass groups of people should have gotten the point in the oh lets say last 3 years that COD sucks and u shouldn't buy it. Yet Black Ops after the Infinity Ward debacle still sold most so far for the series. Nothing to argue about or debate at the end of the day enjoy what you enjoy. No reason ride a hype mans di*k. Just show me the game
@redhemi Sales don't mean better. More people also doesn't mean better. Farmville is more popular than MW but is it better? no, same case for BF3 it mops the floor with MW3.
Farmville and MW are not in the same genre so your not making a point. EA has gone on record and wants this "title" that COD has had. So to THEM YES sales does mean better. That is the case for every company that COMPETES. So u played MW3 and BF3? Even if it did, that is only your opinion.
@Red - Of course he's making a point. Sales/popularity don't mean the same thing as better. Genre has nothing to do with that point. Of course EA wants the sales. They are in business to sell games. Gamers shouldn't care about how many people play a game they like, as long as enough people play it to get a game going online when they feel like playing. Caring about a game's popularity is just looking for validation for something you enjoy anyway. If your thought process says "Wow... so many people like it, it MUST be great." then I have to feel a little sorry for you. Look at a list of the all time best selling games, movies, books, whatever... and you won't be looking at a list of the best in each category. @FatOldMan - Yes. MW3 is CoD with CoD graphics. Many people seem to think that's great. Many people think that's paying full price for an expansion pack. I'm among the latter. MW3 will outsell BF3, but not with my help. I bought CoD3, MW, and [email protected], and that was plenty for me.
lol dwalls do you even own a console? the spawn area in bfbc2 is bigger that most cod maps. in bf, if there are campers hiding in a building, no probs just level the building. In cod the buildings stay put no matter whats going on. sheesh .
Orly? BF3 ALPHA footage shits all over KZ3. Oh, it also does that with maps that are probably 20 times as big. Have a nice day! :)
Troedsson did no say that. You deliberately misquoted him.
I think BF3 is shaping up to be the best competitive multiplayer FPS ever. especially if bad company 2 is anything to go by.
