Many thought that EA’s Battlefield 3 game would have a hard time finding sales launching the same month as the new Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 3 game. But even after considerable first day sales, Battlefield 3’s sales are still growing well , even after its initial launch buzz has begun to fade a little.
Even though its competitor Modern Warfare 3 sold a staggering 9.3 million copies during it first week. Battlefield 3 has provided a different game style and mechanics, using the new Frostbite 2 games engine. Which has proved to be popular with gamers worldwide.
Either way the state of games sales over the last few months, goes to show that the games market is stronger than ever and is even making film and music sales look a little meagre in comparison.
