Next time just highlight your whole post and hit bold, you don't need to bold every sentence separately, seems you aren't too adept with the PC I don't think anyone expect BF3 to outsell MW3, if they did they were insane. I didn't expect BF3 to be as close as it was, 5 million units is a shit load, I don't care if it was 1.5 mill less, it's still a ton, and closed a huge gap compared to BC2 sales. And I don't know about you, but I judge my games on gameplay, not on sales figures, though it is nice that BF3 brought gameplay and sales figures to the tables, sometimes it's hard to find servers with enough room for a few friends to join on me.COD MW3:The day-one sales for Call of Duty MW3 amounted to an estimated 6.5 million units sold in 24 hours and totaled $400 million in just two countries, the United States and the UK
BF3:EA only provided us with the one-week sales numbers for Battlefield 3. Those numbers amounted to 5 million copies sold in a week, and that’s worldwide.
So, there you have it. BF3’s one-week worldwide sales were record-breaking for EA, but they weren’t even enough to match MW3’s day-one totals in two countries.
Call of Duty once again holds the top entertainment launch spot, as it has in 2009 (CoD MW2 )and 2010 (CoD Black Ops)
It's not too hard to quash bugs when you been copy and pasting new maps on the same platform for almost half a decade. Most people I know play BF3 without any of those issues, they are out there, and yes links to as many threads as you want is fine, because people who are having issues will make threads, there is no point in making a thread if your game is running great.Lets be fair, BF3 needs to be fixed on many fronts.
-game always crashing on 1st launch
-randomly kicked from the server
-orange/red/green flashing issues
-tedious use of Origin + FF/Chrome + plugins just to play BF3
While MW3 doesn't have such issues. Although not perfect their game day launch was pretty typical of what one would expect from a game. Perhaps that may have played a part of why it sold so well and it's still being played by many.
Having said as such, it's not the technical merits of BF3 why it doesn't compete with MW3. Neither was it do to the amount of marketing. It's the perception of how people see products from EA and how they see products from Activision. It appears that they trust Activision more. And so far, they are getting what they are expecting from them. Can the same be said about EA? Or will the response be "you need a 64 bit OS"?
I'd just rather have the dev's trying to push the boundaries and having some bugs slip through vs using a 5 year old engine and giving us nothing new.
