1: It didn't take any share away from COD as far as sales indicate IMO.

2: Bloody great game though and excellent sales. Well deserved.



how much did CoD sale?



thats aint to shabby. almost GTA level. But it didnt take away cod sales it just means people bought both games or expanded the market.



guys, they don't say they took sales away, they say they took share away and this is true. black ops sold 26 million looking on vgc sales. bad company 2 sold 6.6 million. modern warfare 3 sold 27 million and battlefield 3 13 million.

so, the 2010 cod had ~80% share, the 2011 release has only ~67.5% marketshare

Ah, thank you for pointing that out. I was worried I would have to be the first one to point it out as I was scrolling down the page of comments.

 

Great job DICE at making an amazing game. Keep up the good work! I just hope EA doesn't push DICE to milk the series. I don't want to see Battlefield 4 next year. I want to see it when there can be a significant and epic update.

 

You know they'll throw us a BC3 before they do BF4 though.

That's exactly what they will be doing.
We get Battlefield one year, Medal of Honour the next to milk people for all they're worth.

Modern Warfare 3 sold roughly double that, but BF3's sales are still impressive.

This is exactly what I think.

I said that Battlefield 3 would probably end up selling as much as COD 4 and so far it looks like my prediction is right on pace!



Since it changed its gameplay to match COD, it didn't really take anything away from CoD.
