EA Doesn’t Expect BF3 to Beat MW3
EA’s Michael Pachter says that Electronic Arts does not expect Battlefield 3 to beat Modern Warfare 3. According to their projections, he said that Battlefield 3 “does not have a slot” at outselling Modern Warfare 3. He officially stated:
Just to be clear, the [Call of Duty] franchise did about 23 million units worldwide. We don’t expect to surpass them with this year’s Battlefield 3, just to be very clear. We expect to grow unit sales of Battlefield 3 over its predecessor title, Battlefield: Bad Company 2. I think there’s going to be a lot of great choice for consumers. I think we’re going to see a lot of dual purchases as well. FPS fans, I think, are likely to purchase and play both titles to debate the merits, the pros and cons of one versus the other.
I think this really contradicts with that they’ve, well, ‘boasted’ at the start of the year, calling BF3 their “CoD Killer.”

Activision Loses MW4.com
Activision has once again lost a domain probably vital to the Call of Duty franchise, this time modernwarfare4.com.
The owners of this site are presumably the people from the modernwarfare3.com dispute, so now they’re preparing in advance. A short Q&A appears on-site, and if you don’t like clicking… then read it below.
Who owns this site?
Are you Activision?
Are you ransoming this site to make money from Activision?
No. Personally, we don’t care – and want no money. We took this domain for opportunistic giggles. If Activision were in a position to buy this domain, I’d ask them for a donation to a charity of my choice. Probably Help for Heroes – you know, those guys that don’t get the ability to respawn when the timer hits zero…
Are you scared of being sued?
Not really. They could extradite me to the USA – I could do with a holiday.
What happened to the old site and the clown
As I was explaining to the guys at Fusible, he seems to have escaped. Fingers are pointing at me for leaving the door unlocked. We’ll find him though.. not that many people around with size 20 feet, giant hands and a big red nose..
Did Activision launch an assault on you with an elite military unit to rescue the clown?
Yes, but we counted it with a squad of Battlefield 3 soldiers. They soon ran. I think you are confusing reality and gaming again..
Why am I here?
Because you are awesome. Go have a cup of AwesomeJuice™ and relax, knowing you are awesome. Awesome.
Well, I’m buying Battlefield 3.. Fancy a game?
Maybe NO PRESTIGE EDITION
Dan Amrich, the Social Media Manager of Activision has said that there may be no prestige edition for MW3. One question: Why the hell not?
