Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty’s Battle “Will Be a Couple Hundred Million Dollars”

EA and Battlefield 3 developer, DICE, have not kept quite about their goal to take down Call of Duty. Yet again, it seems that goal is going to be pushed even higher (hard to imagine I know). EA’s John Riccitiello explained to the Ad Age Conference audience that the next Battlefield is very serious about ousting Call of Duty. He then showed a standard demo of Battlefield 3 to the crowd. That, however, is not the astonishing part of this article. Mr. Riccitiello went on to explain that both games going head-to-head will most likely result in a couple hundred million dollars worth of marketing/advertising. I can’t say I’m not surprised but to all those who are blown away by that figure…I’d think it’d be best if you didn’t watch any TV commercials come this fall.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
