@Nic - Funny, seeing as how I had 18 pre-order/day 1 purchases in 2011 alone. Not to mention all the New games I bought that weren't Day 1 purchases.

People buy games used, rent them or borrowed from a friend.

second hand killed the sales
Dark Odin (on 20 January 2010)
with a boost near the release of the sequel this could be almost a million seller... 900k+

321tttrini4everz (on 12 September 2009)

I like it when if you throw a grenade at a building, the house will blow up realistically
sergiodaly (on 14 August 2009)
no complains here. on-line is fun and servers almost every time full with 24 players... very cool game...
321tttrini4everz (on 12 August 2009)
love it !

@Epke
i agree
Epke (on 17 July 2009)
fun game, the only annoying part is that if an enemy shoots you from nearby it should show on the small map
FootballFan (on 10 May 2009)
will get around 650,000 total sales
headshot91 (on 25 March 2009)
wtf this has been reduced by like 20 percent ?!!?! damn i thought it would make 1 mill this year :(
Aj_habfan (on 05 March 2009)
Finding a game online is very weak. It always puts me in dead games, probably the worst system I have ever seen. Random or nothing.

Fun game though.
El_Valuador (on 05 March 2009)
Again, this is a great game but if they would've done it right when it was released they could've doubled or tripled the sales. So there would be more people online to frag ;) Compared to the forums I've read my complaints and suggestions are minor and I think BFBC2 will address all of the issues.

Bf2 has expandable maps with way omre variety of vehicles and the maps themselves (i.e jets and aircraft carriers). They didn't include conquest mode for over a month and only had 4 maps at first. You can't even choose the map you want to play and there are spots on two of the new conquest maps that freeze up if you go near them.

I'll I'm saying is that, while it's a great game, it fell well short of it's potential. Make more like COD4 with the frostbite engine and tons of vehicles on half the levels and watch the game fly off the shelves. I'll still play this regardless because taking someones dog tags it way more satisfying than shooting them point blank and the pace of the game is more balanced imo ;)

El_Valuador, I kinda confused what isn't next gen about this game 90 percent destructible enviroments and maps(gold rush version) that are the biggest I have ever played ever.

Beside a few small random lock-ups I haven't found any real problems.
Sure clan support would be nice but most games still don't bother with it.
El_Valuador (on 16 February 2009)
If they would've turned this into a next gen version of bf2 with no bugs it would've sold a whole lot more. By just fixing the bugs and adding clan support bfbc2 should sell at least twice as much as bfbc.

It's just frustrating that dice knows how to make a great game but glazed over the details on this. Here's hoping that with of2 comming out in a few months dice will learn something from them and raise their own bar.
headshot91 (on 14 February 2009)
On the contrary, with 8 million more consoles I'm surprised the 360 didn't sell more.
Oh i understand you meant you thought it would sell even more, not just what its already outsold. Bluegrayz was right too
El_Valuador (on 09 February 2009)
I do aggre with headshot91 that its a shame both versions didn't sell more but here's hoping bfbc2 will address the bugs and add clan support by making it even better than bf2 which was/is epic.
El_Valuador (on 09 February 2009)
@bluegrayz

I was referring to the comment by headshot91 but thanks for the obvious.

After further analysis the sales ratio between the ps3 & 360 for bfbc is the same as cod4 & 5 and thereby nothing out of the ordinary.
bluegrayz (on 08 February 2009)
erm, it did- by 500000 more units!
El_Valuador (on 08 February 2009)
On the contrary, with 8 million more consoles I'm surprised the 360 didn't sell more.
headshot91 (on 28 January 2009)
this sold terrible compared to x360 version!
Griffin (on 26 January 2009)
I just bought the game from blockbuster from $20, but i have a major complaint, the game does not use the center speaker during gameplay. During cutscens and menus its on but not during gameplay.
oliminator1994 (on 23 January 2009)
Wont hit 1 million :(
Aj_habfan (on 28 December 2008)
Dude, picked up this game brand new $20 - can't wait for some multiplayer.
El_Valuador (on 04 December 2008)
I've really enjoyed the conquest mode with the new maps. I only hope the sequel is more like Battlefield 2 as I believe that would boost its sales tremendously.
headshot91 (on 27 November 2008)
it was a good game and i am dissapointed it didnt sell more but i dont know if i can be bothered to play thru the singleplayer for trophies, its a gd thing trofies for online multiplayer are retroactive, i got 29% straight away after the patch. Btw while not stunning i think the graphics in this are still v gd.
Aj_habfan (on 22 November 2008)
The game is all about the multiplayer though. And that rocked.
Kantor (on 07 November 2008)
I don't know if even trophies could make me play through the game again, though.
Kantor (on 07 November 2008)
It was a pretty disappointing game. The environment destruction was cool, but only being able to carry one weapon was lame, the graphics were dated, the voice acting was awful, the humour often falls flat on its face. And the WORST part was those long annoying walking sequences, especially after you die.

It's still fun, but it won't hit a million.
Aj_habfan (on 11 October 2008)
It won't.
jedson328 (on 11 October 2008)
Trophy patch is coming, I wonder if that will help sales.
s-grandi93 (on 06 October 2008)
will this get to 1mill?
slimeattack (on 28 September 2008)
I have it. It's a nice game. Sales aren't that bad, right now it is at 20k per week.
ninjascroll (on 23 September 2008)
One of my favorites
its got everything infantry vechiles all balanced perfectly
HanzoTheRazor (on 20 September 2008)
8.5/10 Solid game. Trophies will give it a boost too both in sales and re-play.
luistomas8782 (on 15 September 2008)
blow suff up
Damstr8 (on 10 September 2008)
wonder if trophies will spark sales a little.
lanod (on 10 September 2008)
nice sells in Japan 22k first week 7k second :)
Aj_habfan (on 26 August 2008)
This keeps getting adjusted down...
Dark Odin (on 25 August 2008)
thursday in Japan
ameratsu (on 20 August 2008)
I picked this up a couple days ago and must I say I am very dissapointed in the multiplayer.
Skeeuk (on 14 August 2008)
stunning game online is superb even more so with the update. very good game indeed.
DeadOnArrival06 (on 12 August 2008)
Wow. Horrible PS3 sales in comparison to 360. I guess MSG4 killed any chance of this being a hit on PS3.
headshot91 (on 10 August 2008)
man i just played this just now and the games were so LAGGY it was unbelievably UTTERLY UNPLAYABLE
Dark Odin (on 05 August 2008)
I agree with Aj_habfan
slimeattack (on 02 August 2008)
Why is this game selling so poorly? It's supposed to be awesome.
Aj_habfan (on 01 August 2008)
Considering EA's revenue announcment, this might be a bit undertracked. Hard to say though.
headshot91 (on 24 July 2008)
people on the GAME website have said the graphics of this are ps2 quality... THEY ARE IDIOTS
Pristine20 (on 23 July 2008)
@Headshot91

One word: MGS4. How? It was overshadowed. Also, most people are not ready to give up COD4 yet. I love free-for-all aka deathmatch. It doesn't even have that so I just had to pass.
Dark Odin (on 17 July 2008)
the H7 doensīt work so well, only one multiplayer mode is sad, and itīs so atrange that you canīt lay on the ground.
oh, and press R3 to run is bad too.
Skeeuk (on 06 July 2008)
top top game, but why only 1 multiplayer mode? why not death match and team death matches aswell?
headshot91 (on 04 July 2008)
really enjoyed the game multi is superb aswell as singlepyr. Why is this selling WAY below the 360 version in america? WHY!
Dark Odin (on 03 July 2008)
if this becomes a million seller, it will take really long...
luistomas8782 (on 03 July 2008)
I can't believe that Haze got a better 1st week than this. what is wrong with you people.
Kamahl (on 03 July 2008)
i dont understand why the 360 version was released in japan but the PS3 version wasnt... its like EA is trying to make the 360 more succesful in japan, i wonder if MS has something to do with this because this is not the first game that comes out for the 360 first in japan
cla715 (on 02 July 2008)
ouch, way below my expectations
luistomas8782 (on 24 June 2008)
can't wait for this game, the demo was great but I have to get used to these new controls
Blaiyan (on 10 June 2008)
Just downloaded and played the demo. Didn't really like it that much.
Munkeh111 (on 08 June 2008)
This is the normal one, there is also the gold edition
Blaiyan (on 06 June 2008)
Yeah I think this is the officiial one. I put it up months ago and haven't seen any different ones.
Dark Odin (on 19 May 2008)
is this the original cover??? I like it!
