Call of Duty Series Beating Battlefield 3 on Xbox Live

November 3, 2011 -

If the fight between EA's Battlefield 3 and the Call of Duty series is a popularity contest than EA is losing, according to online usage stats released by Xbox Live's Major Nelson. According to his list of most popular game being online for the week, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 are more popular than Battlefield 3. This might give EA some pause considering that these are very old games beating a game just barely released this month.

The chart is below - or you can check the whole thing out here. On the plus side for EA, at least Battlefield 3 is beating out Gears of War 3..

Yes, but game companies don't care if the game is better. They care if it's more popular, because more people playing means more copies sold. They could care less if their game is blander than cookie cutter white bread, so long as it sells better than the others. Why do you think all the MMO's constantly compare themselves to WoW and all the shooters to COD? They want the numbers that those two games had so they can make that kind of money. Better doesn't factor into the equation.

@Cormic: A list of numbers and letters on a PC monitor, which frankly matters little to anyone who plays either of those games, they'll still prefer their game over the other.

Just cause something is popular it doesn't mean it's better.

Yay? Now what do those numbers look like on the PC?

WonderkarpRegion locking annoys me. I cant tell you how many Japanese games I want to to play but need to own another console and learn japanese to play them!05/29/2015 - 5:13pm
MattsworknameThis kinda thing is why I have a very negitive view on things like region locking and games not being released universially. it creates problems like this where the game gets reduced as a result .05/29/2015 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenNeither will the 3DS. Wait, WHAT?! http://www.siliconera.com/2015/05/28/samurai-warriors-chronicles-3-does-not-include-nintendo-costumes-in-the-west/05/29/2015 - 4:33pm
Andrew EisenSamurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will not include the Nintendo-themed costumes when it hits the Vita in NA and EU next month.05/29/2015 - 4:32pm
Wonderkarpthe brilliance of the Wii U is they could offer 2 games in 1 package. Tablet/pro controller controls, and then a flipped game with WiiMote. Add a master quest too it too05/29/2015 - 4:18pm
Andrew EisenTwilight Princess would be my favorite if it didn't have a few notable design issues. But yeah, those few things aside, it absolutely trumps Ocarina in most every way.05/29/2015 - 4:11pm
WonderkarpTwilight Princess is my favorite Zelda. Its a legit sequal to Ocarina, enhancing everything Ocarina had, and I hope there's a HD Remaster with gamecube controls. Make it Nintendur!05/29/2015 - 4:08pm
E. Zachary KnightI borrowed Wario World, Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. So I am going to try to play at least one of them this weekend.05/29/2015 - 3:52pm
MattsworknameIm gonna be splittingmy time between blood borne, the witcher 3, tokiden, and some pc games.05/29/2015 - 3:34pm
DocMelonheadIn fact, if the whole campaign is to make fun of Zoe Quinn, Leigh Alexander, and Brianna Wu, then I'm not going to stop them.05/29/2015 - 2:30pm
Wonderkarp@andrew game parody idea. 50 shapes of grey05/29/2015 - 2:30pm
DocMelonheadBut I highly doubt that they encourage "death threats"; even they know that gone too far.05/29/2015 - 2:29pm
Wonderkarpi mean, i could create a a random twitter, tweet #blacklivesmatter along with terrinle racist death threats to somebody and be and youd claim the tag was a harrasment campaign by that logic. no. its a bigger issue than a random hashtag05/29/2015 - 2:28pm
DocMelonheadIf by Harass as in "Mock and Ridicule", then yes, GamerGate encourage that along with everyone else that made fun of others.05/29/2015 - 2:28pm
Andrew EisenNeed to finish Wonderful 101. Need to start Bayonetta and Pikmin 3. Yep, lots of stuff to play.05/29/2015 - 2:23pm
Andrew EisenKarp - I've been playing through New Super Mario Bros. 2. Also Shapes of Gray and OlliOlli. Really want to go back and finish Xenoblade Chronicles and Last of Us but probably won't have time for a bit.05/29/2015 - 2:22pm
Wonderkarpi never said it was "gamergates massive harrasment campaign". i mean, truth be told, crap was slung at her long before gamergate was a thing.05/29/2015 - 2:21pm
