This game getting delayed would probably be the best thing to happen for it... Get rid of all the nasty/bitter taste the beta had and let gamers get Call of Duty and the other games coming out this fall out of their systems.
But, who knows. Christmas sales are just so tempting!
Not only have their spent so much on advertisements and on that specific release date. Delaying it would only confirm peoples' belief that "beta was a representation of the full game (glitchy, bad, etc), so they delayed
it." I'm sure it will be fixed before release, which is why they probably haven't/have only just gone gold.
I read on the beta update #2's comments in the Battleblog that the final retail went Gold already. Found it this morning. Plus they have put alot into marketing. People are seeing billboards for it. I was just afraid it'll be like the last two and be pushed
back at the last minute.
The official figure is 200M on advertising (EA footed the bill)
So to break even, how may games will they have to sell just to pay off the adverts.? At full retail, the figure is 3.3 million copies. Since EA does not get full retail, the figure roughly is 6.6 million copies just to pay off advertising. Pls link your
