"I was able to get some hands-on time with two marquee titles that will be in direct competition with each other: Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3. Not to my surprise, both titles are fundamentally the same as the titles that precede"
ok no one should think mw3 looks better
i dont understand why this is even an article i mean COD IS THE SAME FROM MW2 and one. i mean this is good for Activision they sale you the same shi... just put a different name on it...sorta like a drug dealer
To author Trollings an art...please dont dabble in paint before you know how to use crayons.
I am no fanboy of either but I enjoy playing both. To me, BF3 has the superior graphics but we'll see how it looks on consoles (I believe all the footage that we've seen so far is from PC). I still suspect MW3 will enjoy higher games sales because of greater marketing and name-brand recognition with the "casual" gamer. Me, I plan on getting both because I just love playing games. I want to continue MW3's story and I want to drive tanks in BF3 :)
apples in oranges.
MW3 looks way better battlefield is the same thing every game
1/10 Troll harder next time.
lolz is the other way around??
He has the opposite of what you say disease.
I'm more hyped for modern warfare than battlefield and maybe the dude really thinks battlefield is the same thing every game. No need to jump down his throat
I think you can troll harder
lmao!! That link really did make me laugh out loud!
Since you're being opposite man in the face of reality, perhaps you are a small turkey?
I'm sorry but cod is outdated and worn out. COD:God damn there's a damn camper behind that wall. BF3:What wall??:D LOL at giant chicken you might want to get you're eyes checked.
They will milk that quake 3 engine to the end of time. Or until the xbox gets a new console The 360 isn't able to run a new engine.
Is this even a question? Activism is ruining MW with Haol BS. Battlefield 3 won't sell as good but will be the better game.
Battlefield 3 is objectively more technically demanding. The other side of that is that for those of you without great computers you're not going to be playing a game that looks that good.
Even a medium range computer can have a DX11 video card and run the game at something like 1050P at 30FPS and medium settings and look way better than console. You only need a "great" computer if you are wanting the MAX DX11 settings, 1080P and 60FPS, that's how far behind consoles are unfortunately for them.
I think you're seriously overstating when you say a medium range computer with DX11 running a game on medium would look "way better" than on consoles. I gamefly'd Crysis 2 for PS3 and having not yet played it on my PC, I had nothing to complain about visually because there were no MEANINGFUL visual shortcomings worth complaining about. I liked it and decided to get it for PC but I wasn't about to get a new PC. I have a laptop I bought for $1700 two years ago with an 8800gts, T9500 dual core & 4gb Ram, which ran the original Crysis like charm. The laptop is worth no less than $600 on ebay today but it ran Crysis 2 no where near as well as the dated PS3 did. I'm just saying I think you are underestimating what kind of computer you'll need to really run Battlefield 3 in a way that is meaningfully better than on a cheap console.
First of all, you would have to run Crysis 2 at a little below 720P on the PC and at the lowest graphical setting to get close to the graphics of the PS3 version. http://crytek.com/sites/def... "The lowest PC spec, “High”, is almost the same as the spec used on consoles, besides perplatform differences, such as different texture formats for render targets and different normal map formats on PS3 due to lack of 3Dc support. PC specs also feature improved texture quality, since we do not use streaming for PC due to the vast memory resources available" Second, you are comparing a laptop, A PORTABLE gaming platform, to a console? And considering that the 8800 series came out in early 2007 and you bought a laptop with an 8800gts in it in 2009 and it costing you $1,700 means you got ripped off. I'd really like to know your laptop's FULL specs and what the actual average framerate was on the lowest settings at 720P (which is still better graphically than the console version). http://www.amazon.com/HIS-E... Mid-low range DX11 card for 113 bucks: HIS HD 5750 IceQ Plus http://www.tomshardware.com... AvP, average 31FPS at 1680x1050 on medium settings, no AA, 8xAF http://www.tomshardware.com... Mafia 2, Average 41FPS at 1680x1050 on Medium Settings, no AA, 4xAF) Way higher resolution and better graphics and still running 30 or 40 FPS. And considering one of the big things about DX11 is multithreaded rendering, performance increases over DX9 are quite alot. I think you will be surprised what a mid ranged DX11 PC can look like while playing BF3.
BF3 hands down.
"Introducing the Frostbite 2 engine to Battlefield 3 makes a leap from its predecessor that is far more impacting than the changes made to Modern Warfare 3." "Rather than create something new or improve something that already works, Infinity Ward is seemingly content to push out what they know. That’s safe. In comparison Battlefield 3 feels like it has enough in it to return to return the franchise back to being the king of first-person shooters." In a nutshell.
I will buy both. I don't think i want to miss them.
You can keep your mw3 and bf3 its all about HALO: Anniversary Edition!!! :-D
I love BF3 PC, but ffs DICE where is the PS3 version.
they did show PS3 footage that frostbite 2 trailer showed some PS3 in game footage you could clearly see it on the bottom right
Yeah, all .2 seconds of it.
HAHAHA the guy that wrote this article is so COD fan, he didnt even talk about the Battlefield 3 engine, the graphics, physics, animation, etc of course he cant compare that with COD cause COD engine is a crap based in the quake 3 engine from like 13 years ago, there is no compare dudes Get over it! Battlefield 3 will be the king of Fps like it was Battlefield 2 in his time
I think most of us knew the answer before we visited this page. BF3 deserves to win. With its new engine, it breathes new air to the FPS genre. Although Mw3 doesn't look too bad, it seems their just trying to hard to convince their fans. Activision probably know that new comers will choose BF3 this year. If only Activision would have learnt from their mistakes.
Learn from their mistakes? How would they even know they made a mistake when their game breaks sales records every year? On a side note, it's funny that every preview I read about BF3 says it's essentially the same gameplay as Bad Company 2, but on N4G people will try to tell you they are VERY different games. Still... BF3 all the way, unless the console versions are too gimped, which they might be for all we know. Either way, MW3 won't get any of my money.
Cod Sales alot not for the game quality it sales cause the advertising campaign that it has, the game quality of Bad Company 2 is alot better than Black ops but black ops had more sales, But with Battlefield 3 EA has Good advertising campaign, we will see in the end, anyway Battlefield 3 is lot better in all aspect, thats what it matters.
seriously why do retards think that sales>quality gtfo out of here. with your logic i guess since justin bieber sold a lot of albums he's much better than eminem...
Just get the freaking game you want. No need to be an asshole about it.
Unfortunately, things like Activision's marketing campaign make people THINK they want Call of Duty. They want that name on their game. Think of it like this: you have two pairs of jeans to buy. One pair is made by Levi, the other by Versace. They're both the same price. Which ones will most people pick?
EA and DICE should take over the call of duty franchise and reboot it... or just boot it....hard...preferably on the back side
I think Activision should make a new IP and let COD rest for like 3 years while they make a Kick ass game engine and take COD back to it's glory days of COD1 and COD2 play style.
We have yet to see the sea vessels, Helicopters, Planes, and tanks all in action during MP which is what makes BF so gosh darn special and yet just watching the MP infantry missions put COD to shame. Sure 15 to 20 million Gamers are gonna buy MW3 and enjoy it cause it does what it does but I think 15 to 20 million gamers are also gonna get BF3 cause BF already has a large PC community, BC2 introduced many more consolers to a semi-BF type game-play, and now the Frostbite Engine 2.0 is the best thing going coupled with BF gameplay = AWESOME!
if 15 or 20 million people buy battlefield 50 million will buy cod or more
Okay modern trollfare 3. Buy this Guy some glasses! That cod engine is showing its age.
You can do these "VS" articles until the cows come home but in the end both titles will be in my gaming library.
Well as long as you give BF3 a try that's what counts. As for MW3 well if you've played one MW you played them all.
I expect BF3 to take over Crysis 2 as the best looking multiplatform game on PS3 and Xbox 360. Not sure if 360 version will look better than Crysis 2 on 360 because Dice are treating PS3 version like a PS3 exclusive in terms of highly optimizing their engine for SPU, deferred rendering, and MLAA. I think PC gamers may be shocked at how good the PS3 version will look.
anybody that actually thinks cod looks better than bf3 is seriously delusional. sale = popular not quality. some of there COD fans need to get a clue
im excited for bf3 but i want to play the mw3 campaign. the story line is triple A in my opinion and it makes your brain think this coulda happened.
