This year to blockbuster shooter will hit the shelves: Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty (Modern Warfare 3, maybe). But which one will win the race? Check it out!
Go analyze something else without starting a fanboy war you bunch of incompetents!
I guess they never read the Tortoise and the Hare...
as much as I like COD, it remains to be seen if it can beat BF3, atleast in reviews. BF3 is going to be a beast but COD will be popular as always. Im buying both but looking forward to what BF3 offers more.
lol why the 4 disagrees?
Because he likes CoD. Although I disagree with liking CoD, I agree with the rest of the statement. Therefore, I'm doing neither.
Actually, I think they are from him saying he's gonna buy Battlefield 3. Lots of people here seem to hate CoD and say "CoD fanboys stay with CoD!" Therefore, as he says he's going to be buying both, they don't want him to! But, ha, that's my opinion on that. I will prolly own both as well. Though, only if it's Modern Warfare 3, and if it looks better than BO..
BF3, offers better Quality, and it will debut with the Engine of next Generation, which is Frostbite 2.0 Tell me when COD offers something like this.
I'd have to say Cod2 and Cod4 multiplayer > Any BF pc game. I had around 200 hours played on BF2, but nothing can top cod4 promod. But taking into account the rapid decline of the CoD series since the 4th sequel, I'd say BF3 will dominate MW3, maybe not in sales, but definately in multiplayer gameplay - thats if they dont make it like those disgustingly bad Bad Company games and stick to BF2 style instead
COD = the spam nade is born. Now, every similar game you go into. What does everyone do at the start of each round? Yet, spam nade the air, lol....It was so funny watching this round after round for a year on COD4. It's like step one, throw nade in air in direction of other team. Step two, run to same spot I was at a million times before.
Actually the spam nade is more prevalent in the BF series. But still, BF series is and will always be waaaay better than anything CoD.
Shackdaddy836, you're kidding right? COD invented the Spam nade because the maps are so small. You can do it at the start of every game.
You can't even spam grenades when you spawn in BC2, you spawn literally 10-25x the throwing distance of a grenade. In COD maps, nearly every map is small enough to throw grenades from one spawn zone to another....
You are insane. BC2 was great and topped anything COD ever pushed out. COD4 was the only thing that ever came close and even then it was just a frag fest.
Not to mention destructible environments. BF is just a very well polished game period.
dude..bad company games are part of what is making BF3 so awesome. The destructibility was started with BC1. And IMO, Bad company was much better than any Cod game released this generation, just like BF2 was better than any COD game released before MW1.
I will say that BF3 will win. Black Ops has everything I want in a COD game and I see no reason to upgrade to another title.
Gamers win the race.
Duh! COD is Winning!
Nice sarcasm. Might want to end your comment with /s, though, since sarcasm is hard to detect when in text.
I doubt that he's joking
Yea, not a joke. COD will sell better and score close to if not better then Battlefield 3. Pretty much every COD game has outscored it's Battlefield counterpart. And definitely outsold it.
Well i'm picking up BF3; COD will likely be the same games as the last 5. I'm not spending 60 bucks on that.
stop lying to yourself, If BF3 is better or not, at the end of the day everyone will still be playing the next call of duty. like it or not, call of duty is today's gaming standard.( you must have it, if it's good or not) I hated Black ops when it first released, but I've played it so much, that I just keep coming back for more like a crack addict. I like BFBC2, it looks better, sounds better and plays more realistically. I just like the faster pace gameplay in call of duty over BF slower paced gameplay, but that's just my opinion.
Lying to myself about what? COD will be the same game and I'm not buying it. I do not care what everyne else buys. You go ahead and buy that same rehashed game from 2005-present. No updated engine, graphics, or physics.
@KingElixir ..........dude did you even read his comment?
Maybe you buy COD games because of social pressure but I don't. Good luck playing a game 'you dont like'.
I'm actually going to trade in Black Ops, Modern Warfare(1&2) and WAW.. That should either pay for the new CoD game or at least get me close to it. I'm with you, unless the game looks astounding (which I doubt) I aint paying $60. So, yeah, trade in past games for the new CoD, if only I think it looks worth it.
Jesus crist! COD stop at ModernWarfare. The others just make you pay 60bucks for a modified copy.
In all honesty what game sequel does more then just that? Resistance, Killzone, COD, Battlefield ect... All the same stuff modified. It gets worse with Sports titles like Madden.
1000 degrees and a hundred comments either insulting the author or stating BF3 > COD in some sort of way.
Played both a lot. There is no way on earth someone can say COD looks better or sounds better then BF. To even think COD is on the same level of BF just means you do not care to see it.
As much as everyone hates Activision, you all know Call of Duty genre is going to bust nuts all over Battlefields mouth... Now dont get me wrong im looking forward to battlefields single player after watching the 12 min. free play. But in terms of multiplayer, battle field has always came up short and with four or five slots where your limited to what , one shot gun , one assualt rifle, one sniper rifle, and one smg. where as COD, dude you can have your burger king anytime you want .( < DONT KNOW IF YOU GOT THAT) Anyway making this short looking forward to battlefields storyline. But Cod Multiplayer is always going to whipe the floor if your compairing it to battlefield..... Now if Respawn would hurry up .... then ill say you could have something to compete with COD.
COD's multiplayer is fun... or at least I found it to be so until I got bored with it back at MW2, but Battlefield is the better multiplayer game! When playing Bad Company 2 though I always get the impression with a few improvements it could be even better.
im not jumping on the battlefield 3 band wagon this artical is bull crap no one can no how well either game will do.
No they won't.
No, the next Duty Calls is going to win the race
I think we all know the next cod game will out sell the next bf game because this is what most people like. Bfbc2 and MoH were better than blackops bit it still out sold them. Its just like halo games will always out sell kz or gt will out sell forza its what people like not what we think. Its the same with anything iPhone out sells everything else even though it not the best device out there its what people like. I do see bf3 reaching 5 to 9 million but I think the next cod will out sell that.
I honestly think BF3 is going to win this year for 4 reasons. 1. I heard EA is putting a ton of money into commercializing it which usually gets people who don't play games too often super hyped. 2.Almost everyone is sick of CoD. Take my little brother for example. He is one of those obsessive CoD players who thinks it's fun to no-scope and camp. Now he can't stand the game. He says the exact same thing that everyone else says. He doesn't go on the internet too often either so he isn't influenced by others comments about CoD. 3.Believe it or not BF is almost as popular as CoD among the "non-hardcore" gamers. I only hang out with people who don't play many games (can't stand talking to gamers in real life... no offense) and they all love BF. It's a known brand that everyone has played at least once. 4.The next CoD is going to be absolutely dreadful. Three companies are making the game. One is new (Sledgehammer), one doesn't have any talented workers left (IW), and one just absolutely sucks (Raven). Combined this will just be a catastrophe. On top of that, they aren't updating their engine. Now that is just stupid because the look of the game is already behind everything else. Plus you will have two new companies working on a buggy engine when companies who are experienced with the engine such as IW and Treyarch can't even fix it.
"Battlefield 3 vs. Call of Duty: 'Activision wins the race'" Even if COD the next COD sells more than BF3 all BF3 has to do is be half the game it looks like it will be and it will be 10x better than what the next COD can even hope to be. COD4 was a great game. COD5-7(more like 4.1-4.3) were expansion packs essentially, with just new storylines and minor game engine tweaks. This next cod will be the same. BF3 is a step into the next generation with unprecedented graphics/destruction. BF3 in my eyes has already won.
BF3 will be the equivelant of CoD:MW for the FPS genre. Something really fresh. Kind of getting bored of comparing every damn fps that comes out to CoD.
I have a crystal ball too.
Yeah cod will win! But Dice is getting my money!! I'll be buying the second place game!
let CoD win... if Battlefield wins, what's stopping EA from doing to battlefield what activision has done to call of duty.
