Dude can't do math
Quote:
sales for Battlefield 3 on the Xbox 360 were 2,249,092 meanwhile Sales on the PlayStaiton 3 were at 1,486,067
It's 1.5 times the sales, not 2 times.
1.49 million x 1.5= 2.2 Million

PC sales have been estimated to be ~1 million. 500,000 box sales + unknown number of digital sales.

It was released in the first sales report that digital downloads for the first week was about 500,000. So 1 million is about right.

Heh...didn't MW2 sell 970,000 some on the PC over several months? Though might have been retail copies. I am sure you can digitally buy it.

And it is not surprising there are more Xbox sales for BF3...more xboxes have been sold than PS3's. I wonder if they are sure that PC actually sold 500,000 physical copies. It is kind of fishy that the digital download and the physical copy sales numbers are the same. I wasn't expecting more than a 100,000 physical copies bought for PC...though I was expecting a lot more than 500,000 digital downloads. Maybe those Origin boycotters were for real this time.

But yet if you go to bf3stats.com it shows more people online right now for PS3 than 360. I know that it just at this time, but if it really had that many more sales, you would think there would be more online almost all the time for 360. Not sure how accurate the stats are on the site but I would think they would be close.

....or, maybe there are more 360 owners have jobs or school than PS3 owners and are not at home to play now.

Wouldn't doubt it. Though I don't see it as a boycott. It's just as simple as some people just don't want certain software on their PC. It's not as active as a boycott. It just literally kills the options, or interest in certain products.

If a game was only released over Gamefly for instance, I literally would lose all interest in it. I wouldn't be actively petitioning against it, I just wouldn't buy it. For the 2 million on Steam, I guarantee a big chunk of them, who were curious or would have bought it, just shrugged and said "nah". No more than that emotionally, or figuratively. They just stopped caring.

Once on Steam, I guarantee a healthy influx of new customers. The die-hards that were going to buy the game regardless already placed their bets. Now it's just opening the product to new markets. The ones Origin was never going to get in the first place.
