Speaking to PSM3 in the exclusive ten-page hands-on preview in its latest issue, Battlefield 3 exec producer Patrick Bach claimed his game and Modern Warfare 3 are very different shooters - but that certainly hasn't stopped fans calling for blood.
Its true though. BF3 is not for the trigger happy camper one man rambo players.
BF3 - It's for the Hardcore gamers COD - It's for the 12 year olds who likes to camp.
You've obviously not played BF2 since its full of campers...
I also found out that the so called "adult elite\hardcore, full of testosterone , [email protected], trash talkin, chick bangin gamers on net" acting WAY more immature than 12 year old who like cod I was 10 year old and my favorite games were goldeney and turok 2, does that mean that goldeney or turok 2 are for kiddies, when i was 13 I was\is a fan of gta, does that mean that gta is for 13 year old? I could go on and on(mario, zelda, smash bros, mario kart, sonic, donkey kong, crash, gran turisom, gears of war, halo,splinter cell, metal gear, god of war need for speed.........) all of these are legendary games who appeals to all kinds of gamers simply put Call of duty appeals to all kind of gamers, even appeal to some female gamers and that's a POSITIVE POINT and you know that you are jealous of that but somehow haters twist it into a negative point btw, I can't wait for both BF and MW
Lol @ EA starting this fake 'battle' then pawning it onto the fans.. This is either brilliant or it's going to be the biggest backfire in gaming history. Either way what EA is about to learn is that the few hundred people that come online hating on Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 won't matter at the end of the day..even if EVERY single hater never bought another COD game..they will still be on top saleswise. What's interesting is EA is backing B3 with a 100 million dollar advertising budget and no one is saying a word. If this was some other popular to hate title then the excuses of the budget would come up every post. My prediction..and I'm rarely wrong..and if I am it's partially..Battlefield 3 will have an great first week..upwards of 2 million.but the momentum will be hampered by what is going gto be the biggest clash of hatred and bitterness from the PC vs. PS3 vs 360 war of 'which is better' syndrome. The gaming magazines and media are going to give BF3 extremely high score only bested by UC3 scores. Call of Duty: MW3 will get 8.5s around the board. But, the fans are going to break unearthly records buying MW3..If you own a 360 and thought Black Ops and Halo Reach dominated your friends list..watch what happens two weeks after the Battlefield 'stalemate of hate' has subsided (I should copywrite that). I repeat Battlefield will sell 7 million+ for all it's hype and anti-MW talk.. But MW3? It's going to SHATTER Black Ops numbers And it'll be interesting to see the quotes from both camps then.. Evil
"What's interesting is EA is backing B3 with a 100 million dollar advertising budget and no one is saying a word. If this was some other popular to hate title then the excuses of the budget would come up every post. " Aye but one game doesnt do anything to improve while the other does..
Nope. The majority of Battlefield players are still where the series began: the PC. Most of the true fans will buy the game regardless of all the PR and hype bullshit generated mostly by casuals. They don't care about the "which version is superior" shit. And MW3 might sell a lot, but I can guarantee that BF3 will sell enough to be a success while also being an actual quality game.
Sorry Ocelot..not even close to a Call of Duty fan boy..but I definately have a blast playin' em. The funny part is even ACTIVISION's tracking is telling them exactly what I've already said..it's going to out due Black Ops. In fact, I could care less about your quotes, it's the same for all the few hundred COD haters (90% mad because of MW2 dedicated servers or Activion's PS3 comments) So quote me on this..Battlefield 3 will sell great..but watch what happens two weeks later. In fact, MW3 preorders are going to break records..quote ME on that. You underestimate American gamers..and you CLEARLY underestimate holiday game sales..but don't worry, reality will kick in in November. Evil
Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty were never in the same Genre of FPS, by that I mean.. Call of Duty is your run and gun shoot em up trigger happy fast paced game, add small maps and you get the addition of Campers. Battlefield on the other hand is a much more tactical take on games, with Vehicles instead of killstreaks and the required intellect and skill to actually flank a group of and capture objectives and flags, instead of throwing a grenade in peoples faces, then spamming them with bullets. TLDR Version: Simply put, Battlefield 3 caters for the more.. Intellectual and skillful crowd that enjoy a challenge, where Call of Duty is something to jump in and play if your just bored or wanna have a quick game with friends.
dont know bout you but i was ground pounding non stop action in karkand just as much as I did cod4
Yeah, I gotta admit, Karkand had that really great feel with Battlefield, the map was just pure awesome, but it had that tactical feel if you know other ways around ;)
Well actually to put it simply, Battlefield is a thinking man's game. Call of Duty is a twitch shooter that just so happens to be filled with girly voiced 12 year olds. Don't get me wrong, there are some girly voiced 12 year olds on Battlefield too, but the difference is that they only last a few rounds and go back to COD.
. Looks like the weight of COD is starting to crush Dice's spirt as the monumental task they are facing is starting to hit home. Dice, you have no one to blame but yourselves with that big dumb mouth of yours. COD Elite must of blown them away. As to the whole " mature " thing, what they are saying is Battlefield 3 is nothing new and it will be the same " old " game play in a shinier skin. COD is the anti Battlefield and MOH. That is why it became so popular and the highest selling multi-player fPS this gen. It is also why the wannabes out there are copying COD. People always cry about a new COD...don't buy it. It's one game that releases in November...ignore it and buy whatever else you like. It's the industry that is chasing the cod sales...that's not Activision or it's devs fault.
I don't think EA really cares much about CoD. Simply put: they put out a QUALITY title, whereas CoD is the one that's "the same old game in a shinier skin." Except it's not shinier; it's just as tarnished as the last three installments. CoD became popular because it was easy to play. It still is. There's auto-aim on small maps, martyrdom to kill people you couldn't take out when you were alive, perks and killstreaks that mean you don't have to shoot more than 3 people yourself, etc. It sells high because of its name: MW and WaW created the (obviously false) impression that every game in the series would be amazing... but everything after those two was really just a rehash OF those two. Which made it that much easier for preteens with unattentive parents to hop right on (especially on Xbox) and start glitching and camping left and right. No, it's not Activision's fault, or the fault of the developer. It's the fault of dumb consumers that keep going out and buying last year's model with a new coat of paint. It's the fault of the people that pay 15 dollars four three new maps, when two of them were already rendered from a previous game. And it's the fault of the fanboys who defend all the crap that's allowed to be released. Why the hell are we still paying full price for Black Ops? Is there another game sold last year that's still out for full retail price?
If EA wants to try and take over COD, they need to stop talking about COD. Activison does not have to do any advertising for MW3, EA is doing it for them.
Actually it makes sense they talk about COD because that will catch the attention of COD fans. Think about it, they put big signs that says "This game is better than Call of Duty" so what do you think those COD fans will say? They'll try it to see what it's all about.
exactly, it's like gran turismo vs burnout
All of my agree. lol
EA wouldn't talk this much trash unless they knew they truly had a major plan to back it up, and with all this COD bashing they are probably going all out on BF3
In the end COD will sell more untis than BF3...This we all know. As for quality...based on what we have seen so far, BF3 makes COD look like canon fodder.
Forgive me am I wrong, but weren't there articles by EA saying something along the lines of "we are going to give COD run for it's money" etc? I see now they've changed their tune for the better. Since they KNOW they can't outsell COD. And what they said "competing in different sports", is spot on and that is why they won't outsell COD. BF = hardcore COD = casual Theres more casual gamers then hardcore. On that note - BF > COD :)
Those "casual" gamers thing they're hardcore, and they won't listen to anything said otherwise. Their large community backs up that idea, despite the fact that they know so little about games, they'll buy up a game riddled with faults and call it amazing.
u mean cod is POPULAR not casual, last time I checked cod was a FPS not a kinect game LoL
A game that requires little to no skill (like CoD) is casual. It's an arcade shooter, and that appeals more to a casual game player than BF does. Casual gamers play one genre- or, more frequently now, one GAME. The details mean nothing to them. QUALITY tends to mean nothing to them; cheating and easy playing is as fun to them as hard-won victories are to hardcore gamers. CoD caters to that sense of easily-acquired wins. [email protected]: CORE gamers get pissed off at the camping, whiny kid voices, and wannabes glitching. There's no skill whatsoever in spawn camping, camping in general, or having your killstreaks get you a nuke to end the game. Bouncing a knife across the map to get a kill? Yeah... there's something wrong with that. YOU feel badass because you're under the false impression that you're actually doing something, when the game (auto-aim, killstreaks, poor spawns, etc) is doing it for you.
cod require skill cod is so awesome\popular because it make u feel so [email protected] ownage taste so good in CoD and one more thing. cod appeals to the CORE gamers and CASUAL gamers
i wont buy both my interest goes to UNCHARTED3 AND RESISTANCE 3 military shooters become boring as hell !
uncharted 3, awesome I loved uncharted 2, simply one of the finest experiences in this generation
All I know is I'm done with COD, and my money is on BF3 this year. Final.
i said that at bc1
Yea BF3 is the 27 year old 50 home runs a year big armed steroid filled rookie sensation MVP, while COD is the 45 year old water on the knees, bag of ice taped to his back relief pitcher with arthritis.Not even a contest.
From my experience with bf:bc2 and black ops I had a more fun on black ops even when losing bad I had more fun. Most of the time on bf:bc2 I wasn't out played but out gunned. This I feel if you don't get started early on bf:bc2 you really have no chance at it. I do like team base games but I never felt like a team on bc2 and with any shooter there way too many sniper. Also my favorite team base shooter this gen is MAG. I have played nothing that compare to it.
If they aren't competing with COD MW3, then why have they been doing nothing but trash talking? I think they are experiencing a lot of negative blowback from all the BS they have been spouting and now they are trying to act like nothing was ever said.....
So one is playing Futbol and one is playing soccer? OF COURSE THEY ARE THE SAME! You can see that they are trying to steal MW3's crown, and by the way that BF3 is looking they are going to accomplish just that. People are starting to realize that MW3 is just more of the same and they want a new, better looking adventure with in depth multiplayer modes.
GTX 590 with sandy bridge 2600k for BF3. COD 10th whatever, gets pentium 2 from my college time. :D wait a sec, I am not buying COD expansion pack.
What happened to pre-E3 when EA kept saying that they were going to "beat" and "defeat" COD. I'm only stating what they said. But now they did a 180. And I'm glad. This PR bickering was getting annoying.
Its funny how the people at the dev studios like DICE, Infinity Ward, and Sledgehammer are so friendly and speak well of the each other and each others games. Then the jerk executives at Activision and EA go and do nothing but trash the other. I'm only interested about what the devs have to say anyway. They are the ones that want to make great games and see their hard work pay off.
