RAPTR Playtime Data proves call of duty FRANCHISE is still king, despite strong challenge from Battlefield

Raptr Users Logged an Average of 40% More Playtime in Call of Duty on Launch Day; Four out of Five Raptr Users Surveyed Stated a Preference for Battlefield.

 

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Nov. 18, 2011 – Raptr has revealed playtime data measured across its 10-million-member gamer network that clearly indicates that the Call of Duty franchise still dominates the first-person shooter market, despite EA’s major effort to challenge that position with the Battlefield franchise.  Based on automatically tracked gameplay data, Raptr users logged an average of 40% more playtime in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Xbox 360 version) than Battlefield 3 on the respective games’ launch days, despite unprecedented gamer enthusiasm and a significant marketing push for the launch of Battlefield 3.

Key findings from Raptr automated playtime tracking include:

· Xbox 360 players logged 40% more launch-day playtime in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, averaging 6.19 hours compared to 4.45 hours of Battlefield 3
· During each game’s first week of launch, Xbox 360 players logged 17% more per-user playtime in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, averaging 20.45 hours compared to 17.37 hours of Battlefield 3
· Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 accumulated more total hours played in one week post-launch than Battlefield 3 has in three weeks post-launch
· 53% of Battlefield 3 players on Xbox 360 are also playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, compared to just 31% of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 players who also played Battlefield 3
· During the first week of launch, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 stole more playtime from Battlefield 3 than any other game
· For the first time ever for any franchise, three Call of Duty games were in the top 10 playtime charts on Raptr

Raptr’s opinion data found that:

· 81% of respondents were more excited for the launch of Battlefield 3
· 92% of respondents consider DICE a more innovative developer than Infinity Ward
· 58% of respondents said the Battlefield franchise has had a bigger impact on the FPS genre
· 80% of respondents feel the Call of Duty franchise generates more hype through its marketing

“The battle for dominance for the first-person shooter market in 2011 is clearly in Activision’s favor,” said Dennis Fong, CEO of Raptr. “EA made a valiant effort evangelizing its fan base and generating massive support around the launch of Battlefield 3. Given how well received the game was, EA has a powerful opportunity to take things further next year, though it’s clear at this point that Call of Duty is a phenomenon that is unrivalled.”
