Battle of Fall 2011: Modern Warfare 3 Vs. Battlefield 3

SarcasticGamer - We already knew this fall would see the release of Activision’s next link in the chain; Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. We also know that MW3‘s development status is precarious, at best. (Battlefield 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Culture)

Battlefield 3, is what i'll be buying, i never played any of the Battlefield games before, until Bad Company 2, i really enjoyed that one, Cannot wait for Battlefield 3 to come out.

If Modern Warfare 3, is again a "Same Crap, New Wrap" thing, then you can count me out.

Yeah, BLOPS is fun to play in an arcadey-kinda way but BF:BC2 gave me memorable gaming moments that can't be replicated anywhere else.

Battlefield 3 -> Day One.

If you like BC2 then you will love the battlefield series. Its like Bad Company on steroids.

I am 100% positive that any moments you had in BC2 will be overthrown by the moments you will have in Battlefield.

Don't buy Modern Warfare 3 ¬_¬
tacosRcool  +   1549d ago
Agreed! The Battlefield series always had something that was always better than CoD series

Battle of Fall 2011: Modern Warfare 3 Vs. Battlefield 3: Well i'm gonna buy both, at the end of the Day i love me some shooters and Achievements :)

Cmon guys if you think BF will ever out sell CoD your just delusional. Sledgehammer will put rock'em sock'em killing robots as a kill streak and all the CoD fanboys will go ZOMG BEST GAME EVER!, run out and buy it, then come here to complain how much it sucks 2 weeks later.

BTW i love BF and BF3 is day one
Shackdaddy836  +   1549d ago
This is a really big year to kill CoD. The next MW series is going to be made by a bunch of newbies and will most likely fall short of expectations. Its the perfect time for EA to bring out everything it can.

cod dosn't have a chance this year
so many AAA games around SEPT/Nov/OCT
anyone who buys cod over the real games coming deff has something wrong with them
NecrumSlavery  +   1549d ago
Gears 3
Uncharted 3
Mass Effect 3
ES V Skyrim
Zelda Skyward Sword

I think if someone is choosing COD over these AAA winners, they are really rich, or a loser, or both.

But I would have to say, Buy BF3, and rent CODMW3 just to see how the story ended.(Could done it with a DLC pack of $10 but hey, Bobby's a douche.)

i think by consoles getting dumbed down version of BF3,it will hurt it's sales on consoles. so therefore i think COD will win out overall i.m.o.
xc7x  +   1549d ago
i want to be clear in saying that i'm not picking COD as my favorite of the two but picking it as the winner in sales and user amount [for consoles] for reasons stated.
Kon  +   1549d ago
Battlefield over CoD anytime.
Convas  +   1549d ago
Battlefield ALL THE WAY.

Battlefield 3 wins due to two facts

1) battlefield always wins against COD
2) MW3 hasn't been announced a call of duty has been but besides sledgehammer doing it that's all that's been announced (cause we all know its just gonna be a re re re re skinned call of duty 4 no matter what the game)

"Battlefield 3 wins due to two facts

....You say this based on what?
femshep  +   1549d ago

g5bay  +   1549d ago

Vorgier  +   1549d ago

seriouly though BF3 will own it but maybe not in sales.

that call of duty brand recognition is a bitch!!
It's smarter that they go for there main market..

What is the point of this article?
xc7x  +   1549d ago
obviously sales and amount of users,what else? the better game will depend what you prefer as type of game ya like so there's no war there,it's sales and user amount.
DelbertGrady  +   1549d ago
I think it comes down to if you are a BF or a COD player. I've tried to get into COD but I can't stand the lack of teamwork in it compared to BF BC 2, where you need to work as a team have a chance of winning. COD is each man for himself.
mightyboot  +   1549d ago
CoD is 'Rambo' and Battlefield is a 'Commando'

Commando looks to be the clear winner because its simply stronger and effective but Rambo always wins by the end of the day.

You cant beat Rambo.

I tend to agree.

Without a doubt BF3 will have deeper, longer lasting MP than whatever CoD comes out. But as far as sales go, I can't see CoD being beaten anytime soon.

People can say that because of what happened with the PS3 and Blops sales will be down, but you can counter that with BF3 only offering 24 player MP on consoles compared to the 64 on PC.

I'd love to be wrong, I just don't think it'll happen in this case.

Hufandpuf  +   1548d ago
MW3 better be the best game ever made because right now I don't think they have a chance against BF3.
Der_Kommandant  +   1539d ago
MW3 is doomed
