The Marketing Ploy
Now I’m not saying that Activision/CoDMW3 goes to those lengths to get people to buy their game, but we all know it’s happened in the past.
There seems to be quite some rivalry between these two games as I’ve been reading on the interwebs. I even went so far as to read a financial review of which game would sell better (don’t read those, they’re boring as all bat shit). In this report, it was estimated that CoD would have around 16 million sales, while BF3 would achieve around 8 million in the first couple of weeks.
Not being a big FPS gamer, it’s still hard for me to spot the differences between these types of games, but through all my research, I’d be going with the underdog on this one. Battlefield 3 just seems more like my sort of game.
