Does Battlefield 4 have a realistic chance of outselling COD Ghosts globally?
Battefield 3 sold about 6.78 million (xbox) and 6.36 million (PS3). Black Ops 2 is at around 12 million (xbox) and 10 million (ps3), although the sales are monstrous, sales were significant drop-off (~ 20% decline) from Modern Warfare 3 (14.9 million (xbox) and 12.1 million (ps3)).
If Battlefield 4 can make a significant jump in sales to around 8 or 9 million for each console and COD Ghosts continue to decline another 20-25% in total sales from BO2, then it'll be close.
I'm not figuring in PS4 or Nextbox sales, as I don't think these numbers wil be all that much. Also, lots of questions whether COD on the next gen console will look substantally behind Battlefield, or does COD really have a next gen engine for the next gen console?
