Peter Moore: Battlefield 3 Took Market Share from MW3

December 8, 2011 -

According to EA's Peter Moore Battlefield has either taken market share from Modern Warfare 3, has added millions of new customers into the mix, or both. The COO of EA insists that Battlefield 3 has successfully taken a slice of Modern Warfare 3’s market share, even though the latest title in Activision's top franchise has become the fastest selling entertainment product of all time.

"It's early days and we're only a month in – we feel very good about it," Moore told IndustryGamers. "Two entities have benefited from Call of Duty and Battlefield being on the market: gamers and the industry. Together we've grown the genre enormously. 10m [copies of Battlefield 3] sold in and 5m sold through doesn't come out of nowhere – if we haven't gained share, that means in the first week we've added 5 million new FPS gamers."

"I think when the dust fully settles, maybe when we're looking at this at the end of our fiscal year (March 31, 2012) we'll do an analysis and I think we will have taken share," Moore added I don't think there's any doubt about that, unless everything BF3 sells is just incremental."

One thing Moore didn't take into account is that some consumers who just happen to love gritty modern-day military shooters may have bought both games...

Well BF3 is the better game in multiplayer. Multiplayer is what will be sustaining BF3 sales the rest of this year. MW3 multiplayer was a real let down this time.

Re: Peter Moore: Battlefield 3 Took Market Share from MW3

It happened to me.  Bought B3 and haven't felt the need to get MW3.  B3 is more then enough and I enjoy the ability to pick specific servers.

I've owned both the previous MW's.  No real interest in this one.

Or, you know, people could be playing both games...

Hey everyone, I just won at Skyrim!

Re: Peter Moore: Battlefield 3 Took Market Share from MW3

I wouldn't believe anything EA says, especially since they can easily piss off people

Re: Peter Moore: Battlefield 3 Took Market Share from MW3

Dunno about pissing people off specifically, but I do know that for many years now EA's been caught time and time again lying in broad daylight.

mthielThis reminds me of schools a few years ago who forbade their students from having MySpace accounts. I don't mean blocking MySpace from the school, I mean banning the kids from having accounts)03/29/2015 - 5:12pm
Constermthiel, that is fucked up. Threatening to call social services on parents if you find out they let their kids play the wrong kind of video games is a suicidal move for schools.03/29/2015 - 5:07pm

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm
