XMNR: EA CEO John Ricitello says that Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 represents a clash of the titans in the games industry and he feels good about EA's position in the fight.
COD meet you're pimp:D.
The rolling thunder video from yesterday makes me want to upgrade my PC from passable to kick ass. I haven't had any other game do that to me in years.
I am upgrading my PC. I done a 180 on my stand against upgrading a PC for one game. It has to be done because COD must be stopped. I'm buying 2 copies one for my PC and one for my friends on Ps3. I think this battle between Call of Duty and Battlefield 3 is even MORE important than the console wars
come on its not even a battle. we all saw the gameplay vid for MW3 it looks the SAME BF3 got this in the gameplay department now sales MW3 is gonna do it again since people dont learn from Blops
Battlefield 3 wins by a long shot but every1 knows COD will sell more I will get both
The idiots will buy Call of Duty MW3 while the smart ones will buy Battlefield 3....i'm in the smart category :-)
I thought the most important battle of the decade was God vs Satan or the war in iraq/af *notgoing to try to spell it*
The battle between these two games has caused quite the noise for awhile now from each sides community fanbase, hell, i think the whole "BF3 VS. MW3" debate has become even bigger then console debate over the last few months
battlefield fanboys troll almost every COD youtube video now. Here is some proof. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
good EA need the extra promotion i like when people try hard to make us good games
HE MAD AT BF3. PROBLEM?
The thing is and we all know this is true Battlefield is the better game and the better franchise but CoD will win =/
Probably yes, it has a hardcore fanbase who doesn't care much for quality.
Battlefield all the way. MW3 looks like a joke compared to this.
MW3 looks good, but exactly the same game we've already played.
I'm with you on that. MW3 looked pretty cool. But it's like a summer blockbuster you generally watch it once and never again. It was cool for a bit but there wasn't much depth to it.
"War. War never changes..."
And apparently neither does Call of Duty...
"Or does it?" "BORING!"
MW will sell more cos its easier for the noobs and kids.Just saying.
I think they shouldn't be compared. COD is arcade and BF3 is sim.
......Battlefield 3 is definitely NOT a sim. It's not as arcady as COD, but it is nowhere near a simulation game...
360 version of BF3 is selling more than MW3 @Amazon right now. Yay! Edit: Still debating whether to get the PC version for higher res, PS3 for convenience, or 360 version for/with friends.
both games will come out around the same time with advertisement budgets of over 100million so yeh this is the fight for FPS crown i believe MW3 will still out sell BF3 but not by a big margin i think the sales battle will be a lot closer than many think. with advertisement EA can switch many casual COD fans to BF3 when they see the new shiny thing on TV and a lot of their friends playing many will give in and buy it. i am not buying either for me its rage and resistance 3
im getting r3 too i love insomniac adding leveling features to the guns, similar ala R&C style.
facepalm at this particle The same reason that Bad Company series didnt beat the CoD in sales was the gameplay. BF is a tactical shooter - slow paced gameplay CoD is a arcade shooter - fast paced gameplay i prefer a fast paced shooter with reasonable graphics thank you.
This ^^ Well Said.
BF3 Brings Ak 47 to the battle- MW3 Brings squirt gun to the battle-
Unfortunately...MW3 will outsell BF3 by the truckload....
I think alot of hardcore gamers that care about this stuff forget that COD has mote going for it than it's old engine and tired sameness compared to previous titles. It's easy to find games, has tons of modes, has a far better addictive unlock system with more weapons. BF3 will be hampered by it's own realism. From the trailers I'm not seeing any globe trotting in bf3. So the environments will be limiting. Weapons will suffer from what is actually used...with a few extra weapons added to the mix. I'll get both. Bf3 will be a more tactical serious kind of gaming. But, I can't deny MW3 will have tons if unlocks and perks are fun. I'm not a snob about realism in a arcade fps.
So you've seen the BF3 unlock system already? You've played it to know it'll be hampered by it's own realism? You know the environments will be limited and the weapons will suffer? That's all pretty amazing since the game isn't even out yet. You sound like a butt hurt CoD fan trying to trash the competition and then conveniently saying he'll buy both games to cover your ass from backlash. Wait until you get the game in your hands before your judge, unfortunately there's more noob tubing, bunny hopping, prone diving, corner campers in the world than tactical, team based gamers, or else Battlefield would sell more than CoD.
couldn't they have put Battlefield on Vita instead of COD, it would be so much better that way.
both games will be good let it go already
While BF3 is a big transition (BF2-BF3) this generation in shooters MW3 stays dry and forgettable. Oh i think i missed the point somewhere...
Sorry but a gamer wouldn't call this bc3. Your just a casual try hard trying to score brownie points with gamers. You are the audience cod was created for.
Because they made a mistake they are somehow a lesser being than you?.... Ok, bub.
