[Escapist] Trade In Battlefield 3 And Get Modern Warfare 3 For 99p - Page 2  

post #11 of 132
Works for GameStop too, they'll resell the used BF3 copies near retail.

Comment from the article, Hilarious!

99p for MW3? Do they think they're better than Angry Birds or something? Pah! I laugh with my face at them!

But they're right, 99p is too expensive for MW3. I'm getting it for full retail price, sadly.

I can see this backfiring, bringing more players to BF3.

LOL WIN

So everyone on consoles should buy BF3 even if they dont like it
Trade it in on MW3 release date, Profit goes to EA and not AV

Pretty much saying gamestop are confident that people will enjoy battlefield 3 more then modern warfare 3, and are encouraging them to give it a try. (They wont make as much money off a used battlefield 3 then a brand new modern warfare 3 - although they will somewhat recoup their losses off the online pass needed for pre-owned bf3)

And if they DO like it, then they have sold a copy of modern warfare 3 as well.

I hope the game has the option for veteran level only servers, so people who have actually owned more then one battlefield game can play with people who also have battlefield, and will have to deal with less noobs.

If a publisher is behind this then it will be EA fronting the money not activision, this makes their game a risk free investment for those who are on the fence between the two games.

Anyone who thinks activision is desperate are missing the part where the last two highest selling games came from the call of duty camp, they are pretty complacent about bf3 possibly too much so.

I've seen very few mw3 adds and bf3 adds are plastered all over pretty much everything at least in this country. The ones with something to prove are EX/dice not activision.

I would personally sit in the store that does this, just so I can punch every one in the face who thinks this is a good deal :O
