Battlefront vs. Black Ops III: Will It Be A Closer Sales War?

Yes, I know. Unless you're name is Grand Theft Auto, you have no hope of selling what a new Call of Duty can sell. Not even close.

But I'm not so sure that's the case with this year's holiday FPS battle. I mean, I'm sure Black Ops III will still outsell Star Wars: Battlefront by a pretty wide margin, but maybe that margin won't be classified as a "blowout."

Thing is, Battlefield was picking up steam, cutting into CoD's lead, in recent years. Call of Duty: Ghosts basically caused the franchise to bottom out (even though it sold more than any other title that holiday season) and while last year's Advanced Warfare was a return to quality - as far as many fans are concerned - one got the feeling that even CoD wasn't infallible.

On top of which, if there's one fan base that can rival Call of Duty it's the die-hard "Star Wars" fans. If you get enough of them clamoring for Battlefront, and DICE actually gives us a solid, reliable online experience, I'm thinking EA's FPS effort could contend well. I just wonder how close it can get to Black Ops III...

What was the last game that outsold Call of Duty? Probably GTA5 and that's it.

I don't think Star Wars can compete sales wise.

I've seen the trailer for Star Wars and it looks epic and gorgeous. But sales wise, I believe COD Black Ops 3 will still outsell Starwars due to it's more popular.

TBH I am finding Battlefront fairly boring it really is just Battlefield with special pickups, heroes are cool and all but despite one shotting enemies they get overwhelmed incredibly easy and your health slowly drains until you are dead so you can't even play it safe and pick people off slowly. Controls are also really lose and not as tight as either BF4 or Destiny. Guns also aren't that varied from what they gave us, they fire at different rates and one might do a bit more damage than the other but none feel that different. Also for a game a month away from launch I was having a lot of pop in issues versus all the gorgeous looking gameshow demos. Also friendly tip don't bring the AT-ST near big hills it totally gets stuck and becomes nearly impossible to move despite there not even being anything to get stuck on.

after playing the beta, i think battlefront (well, in my opinion at least) will be the better game, but call of duty, as usual will sell more. This call of duty does seem good, but i dont think it will be as good as advanced warfare, i really enjoyed advanced warfare.
