It's an interesting question.
In my personal experience, it does seem like those who prefer the PlayStation 3 aren't so big on Call of Duty , while they are Battlefield fans. In contrast, most hardcore Xbox 360 fans I know will invariably choose CoD over Battlefield . …but why?
That's merely anecdotal evidence but perhaps some statistics support the theory. It's no secret that the 360 version of every new CoD iteration sells a lot more than the PS3 version. That's all the more telling, as the worldwide tally for the two systems is almost identical these days (although shooters are certainly more popular in the US, where the 360 is most prevalent). Furthermore, new stats from Battlelog show that the PS3 userbase is quite a bit bigger than the 360 userbase for Battlefield 3 .
Do you believe that the majority of 360 fans opt for CoD while the majority of PS3 fans go with Battlefield ? And if so, how do you explain this split?
