Which game do you guys think will sell better on consoles only, lifetime.

Assassins Creed games are currently the best selling new ip this generation for hd consoles, whos sales are only surprassed by call of duty, grand theft auto, and halo this gen. Assissns Creed 2 was slightly more popular than Assassins Creed, but the series lost some steam with brotherhood. Fans seem really excited with Revelations though and preorders hint that this will be the best selling game of the series if its legs hold up.

AC I sold 9mil, AC II sold 9.3mil, AC BH sold 7.5mil so far

 

Battlefield has sold decently this gen. Bad Company 2 sales doubled bad company's sales. Battlefield 3 looks on track to double bad company 2 sales with its current preorder pace if it has good legs, and even if certain individuals don't believe the preorders on this site, numerous analysts have reported that battlefield 3's preorders are matching black ops from last year.

Battlefield BC sold 2.5mil, Battlefield BC 2 sold 5.4mil so far

 

I personally believe Assassins Creed Revelations will end up outselling Battlefield 3. I believe Battlefield 3 will sell around 6mil on the 360 and 4mil on the ps3 while Assassins Creed will sell around 5.5mil on each console. Battlefield 3 will be much more frontloaded than Assassins Creed and much of the hype for the game will die down when people realize the console versions are gimped compared to the pc version, so while Battlefield 3 will sell better over the holidays Assassins Creed will pass it with good sales over the next year.

I pick AC due to previous iterations.

Assassin's Creed.



Duh.

Battlefield 3 of course.



BF3 easily. It will sell 12-13 million on PS360 lifetime while AC Rev will crawl to 9 million.

Bf3.It will do over 10m easily while AC:R will be happy to reach Brotherhood's sales.



Assassin's Creed. BF3 will be more frontloaded, but AC legs will be much better than BF. AC also has the benefit of being bigger in both NA & EU, while BF3 will only be particularly huge in NA. And lastly, AC will reach enormous success on both consoles, while BF3 will be focused on the 360.

The only thing BF3 has going for it is it's association with COD. That's gonna help it in the initial weeks, but once COD releases, gamers will move on & it's hype/legs will die off. Revelations is gonna sell for many years to come. I'll be surprised if BF3 keeps steady legs for six months.

BF3 will be focused on the PS3? I do think it will be focused on the PS3 but even more so on the X360.

Battlefield is popular not just in America but always was extremely popular in Europe too.

Please don't edit my post. That's a bannable offense!

While Battlefield may be popular in EU, it lags far behind AC in the region. I don't think it's lead in NA will be big enough to counter that.

Is it true that it's forbidden to cut out stuff (like a paragraph) from a quoted post for the purpose of highlighting the parts that I am replying to?
