Medal Of Honor Sells 1.5 Million, EA Gives Away DLC

The NPD Group doesn't report exact figures for specific software or hardware products anymore, so the it's up to the publishers.

Well, if your game is doing well, wouldn't you wanna brag? According to GameSpot, EA has revealed that Medal of Honor has already surpassed 1.5 million in worldwide sales...and it only took five days of availability to hit that number. It sold especially well in the UK where it topped the Gfk-ChartTrack list. Furthermore, EA has offered details on new benefits for those holding the necessary Online Pass: PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners who bought the game (or bought it used and paid $10 for that Pass) will be able to grab a new Clean Sweep mode for multiplayer come November 2. It's a "team-based elimination mode that will be playable on two all-new maps (Bagram Hangar and Kyber Caves) and two redesigned maps (Diwagal Camp and Kabul City Ruins)." And yeah, it's free. After suffering through a lot of backlash for including the Taliban as a playable side in the multiplayer action, EA removed the reference and opted to call the enemy the "opposing force."

The game has also seen some lukewarm reception from the critics. But none of this seems to have had a negative impact on sales, which we kinda like, 'cuz we still say this reboot is significantly underrated.

To those that have played it (I'm pretty sure I've seen you playing it on the PSN Jawk) what do you think?

Pretty good FPS on its own, LV. It's quite addicting. I'm now level 10 rifleman, 5 spec ops and 11 sniper. The satisfaction of the snipe is much better here (probably due to the sweet crunching sound of getting the bullet off the chamber).

Still haven't done the SP, but currently playing the add-on Frontline (man, they didn't do much about Frontline. The sound is at times broken, I hear crackling and static and sometimes there's no sound. hit collision isn't too great, I played Rising Sun and had plenty good times there)

very good indeed. theres a time and place for playing a Hollywood type of war FPS, and MoH isn't it, this is about the guys who do this for real and quite frankly what they do in reality Hollywood couldn't touch.

Danger Close have done a superb job, as well as DICE for the MP. But in order to see this, you have to play the game to a finish (lol, not that hard seeing its as short as MW2) and just remember.... THIS ISNT COD!!


that last point is important because a lot of people forgot that.. :-/

I do like it a bit more now than i did when i first started playing it. The campaign started to get fun just before it ended. Should have been longer. The multiplayer is fun but hard to see whats going on at times. I have enjoyed the objective based modes more than deathmatch and the guns look pretty cool. Its not a bad game, but Bad Company 2 still reigns supreme.

I thought it was pretty good. It had great characters you could connect to and an great realism feel to it. Hopefully for the next one (please be a next one) they add about 5 or 7 more hours worth of SP campaign and fix all the glitches and bugs and they will probably have one of the best fps ever made.

The game to me is pretty awesome! And LV the auto aim is very slight in te campaign and don't even exist in the mp lol! Figured u would wanna know that!

Anyways the campaign for me was great! I really was looking forward to a long campaign, considering the two teams working on the game but alas the mp is downright awesome!

I know jawknee likes bf:bc2 more so but I think moh takes the nod in the mp! And to me the campaign was more meaningful! Both good games though just for me the mp is grabbing me more! But who am I to say I like modern warfare 2 also! ;)
But if it's any consolation I am having more fun with moh mp than mw2 lol so...

But really the sounds of the guns are spot on, which makes the game much more authentic feeling and grabs you more so. And as jawknee said they look and act like a real gun, as in the recoil is pretty good!

Also your rewarded for doing things in game rather than killstreaks! Which makes the game so much more fun and their is far less campers! U have to get points built up to call in offensive support like mortars and missiles, as well as defensive support, flak jackets and uavs! Makes everyone actually try and achieve the objective! Also is it me or is their far less trash talking in medalmof honor?!?! Havnt been bothered by it once!

Anyways great game!

Medal of honor is great both single and multiplayer. even though tier 1 mode is challenging its great. i wish they increased the point limits on the game modes though because sometimes the games end pretty quickly.

my suggestion is to wait till black ops to play multiplayer though so they can move on. theres a lot of people playing it like call of duty like getting in each others way just to get the kills. it just doesnt fit well with the size of the maps. there are also a lot of snipers. kinda pissed me off at first until i adjusted and found relatively safe passages.

@bigrailer
wow, i wish i was playing the games you were. i run into a lot of campers, although less than in mw2. mostly snipers though. most of the maps are a snipers haven. sometimes they dont even need to move far from their spawn points. what i was disappointed at was that reaching the max level only gave you an extra grenade. also i wish we were given the choice whether we use smoke or frag grenades instead of just having smoke for riflemen and frag for the other classes because the grenade launcher is pretty useless.

johnld, spot on the snipe comment. Most of the spawn points are out in the open, leaving people open for snipers. And agree on the grenade launchers--I think I've fired off more than 100 shots but only killed 2 or 3. Even some close-to-direct hits don't do lethal damage. Splash damage area is too small; and coming to that, the grenade damage area is a bit small than I expected. They really should fix those spawn points and damage splash..

Eh....It's not too bad. The single player is great, story should have been longer as others have said. The multiplayer is OK but i am used to the CoD set up. I still need some adjusting, i hate that everyone is playing it none stop, where everyone has the max weapons an i dont even stand much of a chance. It's BS, spawning is a huge issue but i see it was talked about. Cant tell where i get shot from over half the time. Makes me wanna throw this game in the trash....but other then that the games alright. outta 10...i give it 6.9. Probably gonna use it for another game within the next few weeks. maybe Naruto or Force Unleashed II

Bigrailer, auto aim does exist in the multiplayer. There is an option to turn it off and on. I also noticed when an enemy runs past you, your gun will follow him automatically for a split second. Auto aim is there. Trust me.

Sorry jawknee didn't ever notice, I guess I'm always moving my Sticks so it doesn't have a chance to follow! I will say in the sp I notice if your cross hairs are pointed at an enemy an you zoom it goes to him. But again
In the mp I never notice it where as in mw2 it's very relevant that it's there, which is a complaint for LV!

With that said if you can turn it on or off this conversation is pointless lol! I really appreciate that option, as should LV considering he's not an auto aim fan! Nor am I!

Sucks though because even if i turn it off that doesn't mean everyone else in the room has it turned off.

Though I think Hardcore mode forces everyone to have it turned off.

EDIT: No need to apologize. lol, i wasn't reprimanding you, just correcting the record.

Oh thats alright I just didnt notice it that much, and I was wrong and thought it didn't exist in the mp. But at least there is an option which I may already have off which is why I dont notice it lol!

Good for the franchise. My first and only war franchise for up until COD the Big Red One.

Gameplay looks tight but I was under the impression the multiplayer would be more realistic. Still seems better than MW online though. More excited about single player though!

I find it interesting that many of the features the CallofDuty series and now MoH are implementing in their MP have been stapes of the Counterstrike community for nearly a decade.

if you buy it new, you dont need to pay for it. but given that the game just came out, gamestop usually prices used games for 5 bucks less. 5 bucks, why buy it used just to save 5 bucks? I'm sure you can find a place that would sell it for 5 to 10 bucks cheaper new.

BTW, did anybody find the game to be a bit unstable on launch model PS3s? The game made my PS3 very noisy. I also wished they Frontlines on a separate disc; you can't choose which game to play unless you turn of the auto-start.

I have a launch system too and while I find the SP game fairly stable, I've had many issues with stability for the MP game. There have been many times (more than I can count on both hand) where the game has frozen, sometimes after two or three seconds it resumes other times I have to reboot the system.
Also, I'm not pleased that Frontlines stays in the "Game" section of the XMB when the MoH disc is not loaded but yet still needs the MoH disc to play. And if it still needs the MoH disc to play, why did we have to install a 4.5 GB game onto our HDD? While I appreciate the extra game included, I think it could have been handled better.

coz we trust the opinion of this site? to clarify, this community does not hate cod. it hates games who offer little innovation when a sequel comes up. it just so happens that MW2 falls into that (as well as GH). But hey, W@W, you don't see anyone saying that many bad stuff on that did you?

and personally, I'll be purchasing Black Ops when it comes out, coz those types of games are a release for me. but whether it stays on my library or not, depends on my satisfaction with the game (of which I've outgrew with MW2 so I sold my copy)

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 @ 12:35:47 AM

yeah IGN is DA man huh, they great :-/


out of 40 reviews, 7 gave it a 6/10 that means 33 review sites and mags gave it a higher mark than 6/10.

hell, even The Edge gave it a 7! lol... that for me was the most amusing thing Ive seen in a while, they liked it.. in fact a lot of people liked it.

but some people just believe that COD is the best darn game ever, some people are very one dimensional and fear change, I believe that even though this industry survives through change, people fear it as much as they need it.

so although MoH is bloody good, some just couldn't stop saying to themselves while writing reviews "well, cod wouldn't of done it that way " or "hmmm, where's the nukes and stealth bombers?? wtf" and "...why the hell dont I have 60 weapons, and why do snipers keep killing me, whut the hell is going on!"

i believe this to be true. IGN review (the Video review is the one I saw) was terrible, that man went in to this game with a total preconception of what he was going to accept and nothing else. very rigid

but you know, maybe we shouldn't believe everything we read, after all a review is just one persons 'educated' opinion, it really doesn't mean anything at the end of the day. we use these opinions to form a decision on what we want to do next. if we only listened to one opinion ..that would be pretty dumb.. no?

Bravo for how you put it. Better than I would have written it. I also agree on the whole ign review. Every negative aspect that came from it was cod this and cod that instead of giving moh its merits. The whole killcam thing is bothersome too. I like the fact they don't have one. Its more realistic. You can't see someone killing you in real life so just shut it with the comparisons.

im not having a pop at you Lawless as this is what everyone is saying about how long it takes to complete sp on moh. but everyone is forgetting that mw and mw2s story wasnt any longer, in fact depending on what type of gamer you are, you may spend the same amount of time on moh as you did on the last two cods and bfbc2 ...let alone what black ops will bring us, i bet its not much more.

with moh you have also the tier1 mode which is tough and certainly gives the game longevity... but EA and Danger Close are all guilty of producing a fantasically short sp, that says.. go play the mp. and thats a shame, and imo thats not playstation culture.

impo i feel that the xbox has always been an online hussy, everything has to be online, no matter what. the playstation was always slow in online takeup, but the single player exp imo was welll thought out in exclusives and was built to last. ...but these days its just a case of a few hours here and there for single player and then spenf your next few months on mp until something new comes out... i think its such a shame. and its becoming more and more like that.

anyway, my point is that moh isnt anything new in that respect, people are complaining about these issues about sp, snipers, mp, weps,lag... yet these issues effect all of these type of games... just dont get me started on world at war when that first came out, but look at it now, smooth as butter.

I agree with World. You should post more. But the thing is, the only other FPS's I've played are KZ2, the Resistance games and Bioshock, each of which lasted me well over five hours on a single play through. The short time frame is the key reason as to why I haven't played any of the others. So, maybe it is that I'm spoiled in respect to longer single player campaigns, but that's what a game is to me, a bare minimum of eight hours, and this simply won't cut it. But, as I said, I acknowledge the quality of the title, and will get it when it gets a significant price cut. The same cannot be said of CoD for me, simply because I don't like the seemingly arcade style.

(and I'm far from being one the best gamers out there).

I was all the more pissed cause I don't do on-line MP & I at least expected 5 to 7 more game-play hours for all that money.

my bro (ex-military) was telling me how realistic some things were, like for example if your reload your M4 but still had bullets you're going to have 31 bullets, 30 in the clip and one in the chamber, that right there blew my mind, the more i play the game the more I luv it. Tier one mode is not bad, and the game could have used some co-op mode.

not bad.
MoH was a good game, just needed to be longer and have way, way, WAY! more polish!
and more action pieces, thats what made uncharted 2 such a great game.
1 it was polished to a T, any more polish and you would of taken the finish off.
2 it started with a bang, than every time the pace dropped slightly you had a new set piece to boot the pace back into the stratosphere!

i love medal of honor, kept me playing the whole time. Tier 1 mode is great and challenging, but i finished it.

as for multiplayer, theres a few things that bug me, mostly other players. theres a lot, i mean a lot of snipers in any game. I also keep getting killed behind cover and i know i'm not lagging. games are also too short. minus combat mission mode, each other modes takes about 6 mins at most to finish whether i win or loose.

theres a lot of idiot players right now but i'm sure its gonna get better once black ops releases. just earlier today i was sniping and this one guy gave away my position by crouching right in front of my cross hairs, knifed him so he moves but turned around and tried to knife me. he comes back a second time, this time STANDING to my right, dies. comes back a third time and STANDS right in front of me and getting me killed.

right now i'm 1 trophy away from platinum, the fire controller trophy. i managed to use each offensive action once except for the last one. everytime i tried to get it, someone or a few guys give my position away by sniping from the same spot.

If any of you guys are up for it and dont play like these idiots hit me up for a game. psn id is the same as psxextreme id. if you still cant find it then i dont mind not playing with you, hahaha. just let me know your from psxextreme or i'll just ignore it.

I got it on the Helmand Valley playing Combat Mission. When you are attacking you have a clear view of the road behind a rock. I managed to pick off enough to call in the supports and wiped out a ton of people at their spawn on top of the ridge. I finished 38-0 with 1500 points.

If you can get that mission and you aren't playing against people who know the sniping points and you don't have a butt hole team mate like you said, you can probably do even better.

Liked the MP, though their seemed to be lag on occassion. When I see a guy, go around a corner and die around the corner....there is something wrong. Havent played the SP yet though I hear it's really short.

I'd rate the MP a tic below COD and BFBC series.

Wayne Brady said on Let's Make A Deal today that his announcer Jonathan Mangum has been playing a lot of Medal Of Honor on his PS3. I'd like to believe that but the show was probably taped sometime before the release of the game.

It's O.K. but I don't think it's worth $69.99 here in Canada. I've played this game a million times already. Maybe after a price drop or perhaps during the Black Friday sales (we have them here in Canada now, it seems) I'll look into buying it.

It bugs me that EA taxes on a $10 premium for their AAA games when most other AAA titles are $59.99.

Taken from my "Industry gamers" newsletter....

EA Confirms Medal of Honor Has Generated $100 Million


Earlier today, Electronic Arts happily announced that its Medal of Honor reboot sold 1.5 million copies worldwide in just five days. What wasn't in the publisher's original announcement was a dollar amount. Now speaking on a Fox Business TV segment, EA CEO John Ricitiello has confirmed that the game generated a very healthy $100 million.

Bungie's Halo: Reach generated $200 million on day one (and on just one platform: Xbox 360), but $100 million is certainly nothing to sneeze at and the real holiday shopping season hasn't even begun yet - so there's ample time to significantly grow that number through retail and paid DLC in future.

Some analysts believe Medal of Honor will end up selling around 3.5 million units this year.
