    4 cod’s  in the top 20 really? SHAME

    • Anonymous

      Shame is Battlefield’s position in the top 20.

      • Anonymous

        It would have been if it had been a good game, Battlefail 3 is sadly just another CoD-clone. Compared to BF2 or 2142 it lacks several features and is severly limited, not to mention the over all quality is far from what Dice used to present.
        Much like Halo Reach (pre 343i at least)

        • Anonymous

          The old Battlefields are a bad reference point, only a minority of the people who play Battlefield know of or care about those games, those games are no longer relevant, as much as diehard fans will insist otherwise. Bad Company is the series the majority of its players are familiar with, so those games are the relevant ones. Anyway, recreating the old games certainly wouldnt have helped its sales.

        • Anonymous

          Well, yes, it would be higher if it was a good game, but that’s not because it’s a COD clone–only the single player is an attempt at outright cloning. The MP is buggy and the servers are terrible right now.

        • Anonymous

          Someone forgot to tell the fans of the series that BF3 was basically set up as that… a COD copy.

      • aStrangeDisease

        Third place is a very respectable position. As we’ve seen from Nintendo’s success, the casual gamers vastly outnumber the core gamers. The CoD games are simply a representation of those casual gamers on the Xbox. There are still hundreds of thousands of core gamers in the rest of the top 20 games. Any success for Xbox is good for Xbox gamers, period.

        • Anonymous

          Replace the word “casual” with “mainstream”, as much as I hate those words.

        • Anonymous

          Unfortunately, EA’s BF3 marketing was specifically geared to attracting new players from both demographics. But you’re right about the any success is a good success…

        • Anonymous

          I would consider COD and Battlefield “casual”.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CMAVF75KRFIEKVGUOBXYFD64NA Bama

      There will most likely be 5 after next week :-)

    Wow….Black Ops’s still first

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CMAVF75KRFIEKVGUOBXYFD64NA Bama

    Battlefield 3 a so called Call of Duty killer Yeah right LOL.
    Guess what MW3 is out Tuesday sorry  Battlefield 3.

    • Lee Rayson

      this wont of counted for the whole week, and BF3 is a COD killer doesn’t matter about how many games sold it matters which is the better game play experience

      Yeah people got BF3 while they wait for MW3 but after about a month of COD you’ll see which has the better fan base

      BF3 has dedicated servers after MW3 people will start to see why buy the same game over and over if they won’t put it on servers

      This yrs MW3 will be what kills the franchise and it be a slow death just like GH

      An you can thank the 3 Dev teams working on 1 game for ruining it

      Raven software done the online for MW3  and that will be what makes the leap from MW3 to BF3

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CMAVF75KRFIEKVGUOBXYFD64NA Bama

        Last time i checked usually the better game will sale more copies.. and incase you can’t read BF3 is 3rd behind 2 OLD COD games lolol you think it’ll even be top 5 after 2 weeks of the MW3 release?? Get real and make a valid point.. DA

        • Lee Rayson

          utter BS, game sales doesn’t make it a good game, little kids and Hype is the reason COD sells like it does and not because it a good game

          There nothing about COD that makes it better than other FPS

          Rainbow Six is a much better shooter

          COD appeals to a very young market id say 10 and up and Activision knows this which why they stop putting the animation of having your legs or arms blown off in the game

          Wise up

          • http://www.facebook.com/echeverriamario Mario Echeverria

            All Call of Duty games are Rated M. The market for COD is 18+.
            Sorry dude. Battlefield sucks, COD rocks. the world agrees with me. Just look at this chart. Black OPs still #1 and it came out a year ago. Modern Warfare 2 came out 2 years ago and its #2. There’s no stopping COD. It’s showing no signs of slowing down. Sorry dude, U MAD?

          • Lee Rayson

            So you think because it M rated it aimed at an older market? They new it would sell alot because of young kids getting their parents to buy it for Christmas.

            To make such a statement saying “there no stopping COD” “U MAD” is something id expect from someone under the age limit

            i have bought all the COD games each year it the same game just Re skinned

            With every year more and more people are refusing to buy the game because of the copy and paste formula.

            the game will start to decline in numbers from now

            Thats how BF3 has beaten COD it slowly dry up then Activision will milk another franchise.

            Probably the one Bungie is developing since that is a FPS

          • http://twitter.com/Uzumaki15 David

            I fail to see how BF3 wins by doing the same thing CoD is doing. New maps, new engine, new weapons. 

            And Black O- I mean BF3′s campaign is so much better, Throw in EA’s crappy sever care and I fail to see it’s superiority. 

            Yes some say CoD is just reskined repeatedly, but what series game isn’t? No one’s yelling at Madden or Gears.

  • aStrangeDisease

    This is the first time in Halo history that a Halo game is not in the top five.

    • Kelsey Foster

      because  halo reach sucks its a sad excuse for a halo game has been since day and will always be. there is no fixing it

      • Kurian Vithayathil

        Lol cry moar

      • aStrangeDisease

        I think it’s a great game. Much better than your punctuation.

    Most Battlefield players are on the PC and most Call of Duty players are on the Xbox 360. For those wondering why BF3 isnt #1

    • http://twitter.com/SeulFantome Blarg

      There are nearly as many 360 Battlefield 3 players as there are PS3 and PC combined. At least according to http://bf3stats.com/.

      • Anonymous

        When I looked this morning 360 had the highest player count
        with the PC having the lowest.
        At the moment PS3 has the highest count.
        Based on that I recon it’s a bit of a fallacy to believe PC has the most
        players. At best it’s about equal across all platforms.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CMAVF75KRFIEKVGUOBXYFD64NA Bama

      BF3 isnt #1 because it is a pos. lol

    • Anonymous

      From what Ive heard, even the PS3 version has a larger player base than the PC version.

  • Anonymous

    I find it interesting (and maybe unfortunate) that Dungeon Defenders is listed as number one when its actual sales numbers may be under 20-30k, which isnt surprising given the timing of its release, but it would be nice if more people bought it.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NPDMVB7TRA7CBKLS635BW3QCBU RODNEY

    battlefield did not release untill the 28th in europe…maybe it will be higher next week.

  • http://twitter.com/IINaSII Nas

    Chill out guys, Halo Anniversary will bring Halo back.

    1. Modern Warfare 3
    2. Halo Reach/Anniversary
    3. BF3
    4. FIFA 12
    5. Black Ops

    • Anonymous

      I doubt the remake will remain at 2nd position more than 1-2 weeks after release. :)

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YCO66ZDLVD3Y47CDVJOVFOIKSI Aaron

        I don’t see CEA doing anything for this game. The only reason it might is because the numbers will be screwed up because if you log online to play campaign even as single player, it’ll register as an active player. CEA will do nothing for the online community, I don’t even think it’ll make top 5 longer than a week if even.

  • Anonymous

    Wow Reach at 6th position? Damn. @_@

  • http://twitter.com/N0RDS Pascal Brulotte

    I knew it for BF3 it was obvious

  • http://www.facebook.com/echeverriamario Mario Echeverria

    :D Black Ops maintains #1 spot. Modern Warfare 2 maintains #2 spot :D

    Looks like Battlefield 3 isn’t killing COD after all!

  • http://twitter.com/jass_s Jass Sunrunner

    BF3 was only out for a part of the week, so it will be next weeks figures that will be telling

  • Anonymous

    At some point you have to realize Battlefield 3 is a designed PC game. The PC is what it was designed for, and I am not just talking about graphics.

    I was hyped for BF3, then I played that beta cough multiplayer demo. It was a bit of a mess.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WBOWKE4VMVDVOQCWDRVAUOS27Q Alek

    Battlefield should go up next week,people here forget that games are never up high when they release,And i seriously hope mw3 isnt up there,looks the same as mw2 but fanboys are gonna buy it just cause its Call of duty,i swear someone needs to make a unique game that isnt just another generic shooter which Bf3 and Mw3 are in their own terms

  • Anonymous

    What happened to the 8 million BF3 beta unique players EA is claiming about?  Probably another hype as part of their marketing strategy just like how they hyped BF3 using the PC version. All lies.

  • Anonymous

    BF3 is at number 3 because it is still living with the hype. But now, Xbox360 gamers knew that hype is absolutely NOTHING, BF3 is same old BC2 and the graphics in Xbox360 is far inferior to the PC version. It will slide down slowly next to where BC2 is now.

    ITT: Call of Duty fans proclaim how large their dicks are.

    • Anonymous

      Actually…it’s more like…

      ITT: Call of Duty fans rub it in BF fanboy faces after constantly being bombarded by stupid “BF > COD !!!!!1″ in practically any CoD related topic on any gaming website. When BF fanatics make it a point to constantly tell people how Battlefield is better all the time…they deserve this.

      • Anonymous

        so you’re basically admitting that mario kart wii is better than every other game because more people play it?

        • Anonymous

          No…I didn’t do that at all. That’s your own little conclusion you jumped to on your own.

    ridiculous, modern on front of bf 3.

    Hey BF3 get ready for the #4 spot in one week

    • chriscofield20

      LOL and MW3 will be #2 3 days later… gf

  • aStrangeDisease

    CoD and Battlefield are the same thing to me. I don’t play either. They are for the kids who just want to play whatever is most popular. (casual)

    • Anonymous

      You don’t seem to understand what casual means.

    • Anonymous

      This both infers that adults must always be “hardcore” and that only children play games happen to be popular– both of which are incorrect.

    • Anonymous

      Children don’t play CoD!  It is rated M for Mature 17+!!  Oh wait, there are a ton that play it due to lack of parenting skills in their household. To be fair though, there are a lot of adults over 17 that play it as well (and there are many who have the mentality of a child).  Children will play whatever is deemed popular, but that doesn’t mean that they are casual players.

    Battlefield 3 can be better than COD without more people playing it on live.  Lots play campaign during week one don’t forget….

    • Anonymous

      LIVE activity measures the games being played by users who are simply *signed in* to Xbox LIVE–single player or otherwise. It has nothing *specifically* to do with who is playing a multiplayer game and/or multiplayer component of a game. This is why Batman is on the list–the game has no multiplayer component, but many people are playing the game whilst logged into LIVE.

      • http://www.facebook.com/brandon.slezak Brandon Slezak

        Good to know Barricade, thx for the info, that is surprising that even MW2 beat out BF3, doesn’t matter to me as you can tell on my pic I like jets, and I like being the airstrike not calling one in…   :D  I also like playing with friends in a private squad, you are always with your friends, with COD I have to find them.  To me the vehicles and large battlefronts make all the difference.

  • tomo008866

    Xbox Live officially has more kids than PSN. Two CoD games on top… Is this a joke or are people just too noobish?

    Battlefield 3 is far better than any CoD game ever released. All those CoD fanboys don’t want to change their little game. It might be a bit of a challenge and their Xbox and TV will pay the price for their rage.

    • Anonymous

      You realize you just sound like a raging fanboy yourself, right?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000344838580 Joseph Kwok

      we can tell you are a moron congrats tomo

    • Anonymous

      It has nothing to do with “challenge,” but sadly, that’s the flawed impression some would have you believe. Call of Duty is simply a more popular franchise and more accessible. Additionally, there are millions of ADULTS (*gasp!) who have fun playing it. To each their own, I enjoy both.

    • Anonymous

      I find battlefield to be alot easier than cod. You probably just suck at cod and therefore believe that battlefield is the superior game

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3H4IDPK2I3R7BBVH7AOB4X4JFI A Christian

      I agree with superman64, only a raging fanboy would get upset that his game is being beat in a poll.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NDJNHNFRKV6GHEWDLK7GNMRO4Q Mason

    guess it’ll be pretty obvious what the top 3 will be next week.  can’t believe BF3 couldn’t beat a game that is about 2yrs old. 

  • ferrarimanf355

    Seeing Daytona USA at #2 on the list makes me happy. Hopefully, Daytona USA 2 is on the docket now. :-)
