Battlefield 3 faces "heavyweight fight” with MW3 – EA boss

BeefJack: "Battlefield 3 will be “going into a heavyweight fight” with Modern Warfare 3, says EA President Frank Gibeau – but his company intends to “go after the shooter category” from now on, as he continues to talk up the face-off between the two franchises this autumn."

Man... EA really want that CoD cash, don't they. Still it can only be good for games - competition is healthy.

Competition IS healthy, and you can always buy both :D

RedDead2473d ago

I REALLY hope EA win this one, just so Acti will realize they need to do something new with Cod.

Spitfire_Riggz2473d ago

Go look at the pre-order charts... MW4 on its way folks

Well at least their not releasing a Yearly Battlefield, tho I don't think MoH will do well in sales now it's already off to a bad start, they hyped it to death and made great on sales but only cause of hype it turned out to be partly rubbish, so I dunno what they can do to convince people to get it this time.

CaptainMarvelQ82473d ago

Competition is healthy when you have two companies competing and bringing new things to the table and improving the game in order buy the fans

NOT when you have two games,one of them is doing nothing new and still get's the win with blind support from fans

BF3 will win the fight for my PC and MW3 will win the fight for my X360.

I will be supporting EA. As should everyone else who cares about games.

stu8882473d ago

is this a joke. For the most part EA dont give a toss about consumers. If your supporting DICE fair enough.

About 5 years ago, this would have never came out of anyones mouth. How much times have changes. Even though that first day DLC for Battlefield 3 is something I despise, I hate Activision more for compleatly fucking up COD.

MW3 sales will destroy B3. DICE haven't even shown console footage of B3. They should have at E3. Console sales is what dictates the market.

Reviews will likely be the same, on the consoles.

On PC MW3 will score 8.5. B3 will score 9.

How is he a tard? He is acccurate on the fact that they haven't shown this game running on a console. You think it's ironic they are only showing this game running on a top of the line gaming rig? Console gamers will get the watered down version, a Bad company 2 upgrade.

The pre-order charts are clear, showing a massive interest for MW3 and a not so great interest for BF3. I will end up purchasing both, but you have to open your eyes.

stu8882473d ago

mahfuz im stating a fact that u B3 ass lickers cant take.

I will get both too

blackz0012473d ago
