@XG247: Looks like Xbox will continue to support Call of Duty and Playstation will be taking the Battlefield approach.
Sounds about right. The philosophies are very similar.
hahahhah this is perfect. MS talking about the sales of a game console. When Sony is actually showing GAMES about a GAME console. c:
I hate these type of shooters. I might try Battlefield 3 on my PC but I won't touch MW3, just like I haven't touched any other CoD game.
And the only thing Developers care about are sales.
what was that two paragraphs of rubbish i just read?? absolutely no substance or proof, just pure speculation. but it's alrite, just slap 360 vs ps3 in title, and any blog is ripe for blogs4fanboys. even better if you write that cod will be supported by microsoft, both of which are hated on here. combined with bf3 and the ps3 which coincidentalley are both loved on here, and the bloggers are on to a winner. wtf?? by the way. bf3 will be for me, cod is finished in my consoles.
Sad, right? The site just states MW= Xbox and the people here eat it up and ignore the fact that this is another garbage article. Of course, if this was a jab at PlayStation, you'd see the report page filled with complaints and people claiming everybody attacks PlayStation. This isn't even a rumor, which just goes to show how people aren't even paying attention, yet people are voting up based on the stupid analogy. Just goes to show how this site has a double standard towards what gets approved around here.
@Maniac: You're confusing developers with publishers -- developers of course want their game to sell, but its ultimately the publisher that is willing to risk a developer's integrity.
@ alpha, careful, you'll lose bubbles quicker than lightening writing truthful statements like that....have a bubble for protection
@ alph the reason people associate cod with xbox is, that Microsoft announced at last year e3 that they will have content thrown there way first by activision and couple the fact everything cod related seems to have Microsoft or xbox atteched to it. Did anyone read the article? The author is assuming that Sony will have a similar deal with battlefield like Microsoft with cod.
@wicko - Exactly. Publishers are the ones who set budgets, deadlines etc and sometimes force the devs to push out unfinished games that could have been gems with more dev time, like APB and Brink.
Go back to the forums
I'm with Battlefield 3 all the way :-)
Most likely going for Battlefield 3... on the PC.
64 Players FTW
personally BF3 is the game for me
I think i'd have to agree but I'm still waiting to see it running on a console - which is my main concern.
I'm not concerned, BC2 looked very nice on console, not the best but still great and ran well so that's the proof for me
Good Call, I'd be happy with that ;)
I wouldn't be concerned... sure it won't look like the PC version we have seen so don't expect it to! But it will look alot better than BF:BC2... and I still play that game all the time.
NO ...... COD VS BF = XBOX VS PC ....
True, but you don't see the 'Personal Computer' as a single entity at E3 :P
its only fair. if PS3 gets some exclusive stuff for BF3, lookout!! if true that'll be the version i buy.
welcome BF and Mw to my gaming collection welcome, damn great time to be a gamer
Best of both worlds! Good choice.
yep no need to fight like 12 year olds
same as PS3 amd Xbox 360. yep! Best of both worlds. Love it being a gamer then a fanboy who goes on the internet spreading hate.
I welcome none to my collection. Both suck. No need to fight over them like 12 year olds.
why bother commenting dude LoL
There had to be one person (cough *news4geeks* cough) that would try to taint one of the few friendly posts on this topic. Good job on looking like one of those 12 year olds you dislike so much. Anyhoo...I'm with you ape. Why fight when you can just have both? People are failing to realize what a great time it is to be a gamer because they're all gearing up for the fan boy flame wars. Gaming ftw.
if i was sony i would go for bf3 also why not? call of duty is in microsofts a** i never even saw a call of duty commercial for ps3 like not even one that show both consoles every single commercial shows a xbox360 at the end so its onli fair for sony to get some bf3 love and its should be a very good game
Hell's yeah battlefield 333333333333333 :) can someone please tell me if playing bf 2 on pc is free? i not its not related to this article just need to no thanks
Comparing the two or putting them in the same league seems like an insult to Battlefield to me.
seriously bf fans should shy away for such insulting comparisons
LOL, Battlefield sells better on 360, More people play it on 360. What are you Ps3 fanboys on about ??? BTW Medal of honor lead on Ps3 but looked and performed better on 360, Go figure,
We have wayyy too many games to play. what are you Xbox 360 on about? We have KZ3, GT5, SOCOM 4 etc etc... While you only have 2 choices. And calm down because it is just the truth, that's why you see more 360 people in COD and BF.
Yeah....360 owners only have 2 choices....you keep thinking that....-_- Seriously are all PS3 fanboys some kind of rediculous hive mind, I keep hearing the same lame insults and comments over and over again...it's getting fucking old.
well gears of war 3 in my opinion is better than kz, and certainly much better than socom(SOCOM LOL), the great games on ps3 are Uncharted (this game is the Sh!t) and GOW, R is good but not great and Forza 4 gonna be sweet, forza 3 already exceeds GT5 in scores, online play is better than psn, demo and dlc support is better, most games are built on 360, means better gfx and performance(Resi5,red dead,gta 4,black ops) both consoles have their pros and cons and waynekerr words were true and don't know how he got disagrees, anti-logic
"While you only have 2 choices." Uh... oookay then. I have more than 2 choices just between games I'm currently playing. L.A. Noire, DiRT 3, Outland, and LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.
@ YodaCracker: He was clearly talking about exclusives. So he IS right. PS3 has way more exclusives than Xbox360. But I agree Xbox Live is better service. But hey, you guys have TIMED exclusive DLC,cheer up...
wow all this fanboy hate. It's a good thing am not a fanboy, lol.
u 360 faboys are a bunch of retards. for the past 2 years straight, ps3 EXCLUSIVES have been killin your ummmmm iunno what the hell 360 has anymore for exclusives to BE HONEST...(halo reach?/kinect) thats messed up! we have GT5, K3, U2, LBP2, SOCOM, inFamous 2, resistance 3 etc etc. so dont point fingers with your little kinect games because saying ps3 has no exclusives games is like saying 360 fanboys have no brains. and we all know thats not true... am i right?? ahem*
call of duty is the best selling franchise on the ps3 I own every cod title since cod 4 as do many others i have a life and am only looking for quick blast around for which call of duty is fine for me battlefield is irrelevant to me i have no interest in it. If i get any dislikes from battlefield fans they prove themselves to be hypocrites because of the amount of scrutiny cod fans have come under for being "fanboys" the image i believe to represent both battlefield and cod fanboys of which i am fortunately neither
lol @ waynekerr dont you know how it goes on here?? cod and microsoft are evil. so therefore the fanboys are assuming that sony and battlefield will bring balance to the force..
Yea the battlefield/ps3 crowd on here is just...sad. Im buying both and I own both consoles. So there. Fanboys should just be sent to an island. Then all their flaming will burn it to the ground and the big zit on the gaming community's ass that is fanboyism will be solved.
Xbox360 vs PS3 = Modern Warfare 3 vs Battlefield 3? Xboxers will pay for xbl Plus Elite! BF3 PC/Ps3 will have the most hardcore community. Mw3 will suck becuz of noob devs who never made a call of duty game..
Even the Sledgehammer is saying they need more time on cod cuz they'res just not enough people working on cod. http://gamercrypt.com/conte...
This is an easy one. MW3 on the Xbox 360. MW3 on XBL will have like 3 million people online at midnight launch, probably closer to 1:00 a.m. actually. Also MW3 will have the MLG deal going on and the most teams competitively on Gamebattles. It's really not even a question. Honestly I don't have a single friend on my PS3 list or Xbox 360 list that play any Battlefield game anymore, while 75% of them are still on either Black Ops or MW2. That's a lot of people. COD just has that staying power and of course the COD games are always better on the 360. So it's a no brainer.
That's because you don't like BF games so you don't make friends with anyone who plays it. I constantly have 50% of my friends playing BC2 and about 25% playing a CoD game.
Okay, so he has more COD friends and you have more Battlefield friends. Let's just settle it and see which game is being played more. 360+PS3 Sales Black Ops - 22.60 million Bad Company 2 - 5.17 million Xbox LIVE Activity Top 10 - May 16, 2011 1. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Modern Warfare 2 3. Halo: Reach 4. FIFA Soccer 11 5. NBA 2K11 6. L.A. Noire 7. GTA IV 8. Call of Duty 4 9. Battlefield: Bad Co. 2 10. Gears of War 2 I'm surprised BC2 is even in there, but COD is the clear winner with the top TWO spots. PSN probably looks about the same as well. There's absolutely no doubt whatsoever that Black Ops is the most played game on PSN, by a loooong shot. At least Halo: Reach on the 360 is up there competing but I can't think of any game that could have sold enough copies to compete on the PS3.
While i agree that more people play call of duty, even i play it on pc (cod4, best in series imho). But since when does sales= quality off topic rant: hell I beat more new innovating games get less sales due to treading new ground. Innovation is what is important, new creative ideas that help game play survive for years to come is what makes a game great, not rehashing the same ideas over and over./rant
this is dumb ps3 has nothing exclusive with either game. EA doesn;t do exclusive anything.
why?? they both sell better, played more, sell more dlc and perhaps Look better on xbox 360
with that said how is it Xbox360 vs PS3 = Modern Warfare 3 vs Battlefield 3. if anything its consoles vs PC = Modern Warfare 3 vs Battlefield 3
Actually EA and Sony have had 2 exclusive deals already. Remember Dead Space Extraction HD and MoH Frontline HD included in the special editions of Dead Space 2 and Medal of Honor? http://www.videogamer.com/p...
I'm getting BF3 for PC and PS3.
i dont get the cod being associated with 360 crap. its on both consoles and its sold over 10 million on ps3 and is ps3's higest selling game aswell, so its just as much associated with playstation as it is with xbox. exclusive advertising and getting dlc early doesnt associate shit! its about the players and theres 10 million+ of them on ps3 ( im not included)
Intelligent comments? I must not be on N4G anymore.
How could any1 still give MORE money 2 Activision, there clearly trying to get as much as they can because COD4 happened to be good but the rest are just re skinned copies. BF 3 NO question!!
This article is so stuupid, please thats wishful fanboy thinking right there. I had a feeling someone would eventually bring that up why not bring it up around the Eve of E3 huh SMH. Team Xbox (X)
sweet, i prefer battlefield anyway! COD games are pure shite
Good. Ive been done with COD since a month after MW2 came out. Id much rather have Battlefield 3!
since when do PS3 owners care about FPS'S??
You've got to be kidding right? The Call of Duty games are the systems top sellers, and then you have titles like Resistance and Killzone as well. No idea where you got the idea that PS3 owners don't care about the FPS genre, because a LOT do.
yeah but KZ and Resistance are actually good. not garbage like call of rehash...
they all have 3s lol
battlefield 3 will sell better on xbox 360(that was the case with BF2) because multiplat games usually sell better on xbox 360 and this year the 360 has only 2 exclusives
wow Consoles vs PC, PS3 vs Xbox 360, BF3 vs MW3. wow this will never END!!
How did this crap get approved? Are the mods intentionally promoting flame wars? Come ON N4G.
What a stupid article.
ROFL!!!! Did the author and the fanboys in this thread not get the memo that CALL OF DUTY is the best selling series on PLAYSTATION too?!?! Oi.
It really is baffling that some of them STILL haven't picked up on that fact, and continue to spew crap as if only 360 owners buy into that yearly milk fest.
