Battlefield 3 sales: Xbox 360 vs. PS3
Sales figures for Battlefield 3 have been very healthy indeed (nothing like what Modern Warfare 3 will be) but what format has sold the most units? Unsurprisingly BF3 for the Xbox 360 has sold almost twice that of the PS3, 2,249,092 compared to 1,486,067. Let us not forgot the install base for Microsoft’s console.
We know that the graphics on the PC for Battlefield 3 are impressive and leaves consoles looking like previous-gen systems, so comes as a shock that sales of the game have not even reached half a million on this format. Gamezone says that these figures will be more than this, as they were taken a couple of days back now.
Overall sales of Battlefield 3 have reached 2.25 million as of two days ago, which is way short of targets set by DICE. There’s no denying that it’s an awesome game, but it just cannot compete in terms of sales against MW3. We had assumed that sales of the PC version would have been greater – maybe they will rush BF3 to Steam after all?
Knowing that Dice has made a great game, why do you think it struggles when compared to their rival developed by Infinity Ward?
Update: Seem to have got my facts wrong on this one, and would like to say sorry. As for being a CoD fanboy, you would not say that when you see how bad I play.
