Electronic Arts is one of the biggest names in the gaming industry, but even it is conceding its upcoming Battlefield 3 doesn't stand a chance of outselling Activision's new Modern Warfare 3.

According to GamePro, EA's Chief Financial Officer Eric Brown addressed investors, letting them know bluntly that Battlefield 3 will not outsell Activision's Modern Warfare 3.

"Just to be clear, the [Call of Duty] franchise did about 23 million units worldwide. We don't expect to surpass them with this year's Battlefield 3, just to be very clear," he said.

Activision's Modern Warfare 2 was the highest selling game in the world, and according to the UK telegraph sold 7 million copies on its first day alone. Its successor Modern Warfare 3 is said to break sale records as it concludes the Modern Warfare saga.

Brown's address was that of a realist and despite recognising Battlefield 3 won't have MW prowess, he claims the game will still have strong sales.

"We expect to grow unit sales of Battlefield 3 over its predecessor title, Battlefield: Bad Company 2," he said.

So far, the yet-to-be-released title is on track, with 1.25 million presales secured.

"I think there's going to be a lot of great choice for consumers. I think we're going to see a lot of dual purchases as well. FPS fans, I think, are likely to purchase and play both titles to debate the merits, the pros and cons of one versus the other," concluded Brown.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
