GameMarshal.com has put together a "Facts & Figures" comparison chart between Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 contrasting the 2 games.
Shouldn't the engine say improved (BO,MW2,MW) engine instead of just MW2?
Technically it is the MW2 engine improved as developers have referred to it, even if it was used in other titles. At least that's my understanding.
Yes. And IW doesn't like to "Name their engines" Their words not mine. I do like the comparison chart. Much better than a screenshot comp.
I stopped by here to look at all the "flame on" etc.. where are you?!
At the end of the day for me its gonna come down to gameplay, and multiplayer, I think we all know what cod will be like so hopefully BF3 will be awesome
Bad Company 2...but bigger scale, more vehicles, and better graphics...and prone. as for modern warfare 3 having dedicated servers...MAYBE...on PC...no way that'll happen on console.
Oh ok thanks GMAnton.
Looks like bf3 wins!
this chart lacks some main advatages that BF3 has over Cod like destruction and big maps
Last I read of Dedicated servers on MW3 was its a maybe AFTER launch. With the game only launching with Peer to peer matchmaking crap.
all based off the quake 3 arena engine - john carmack thats why those maps in call of duty are small and use techniques to make it appear its large but you can never enter those far off areas or they'll use fog or cut scenes to give the illusion of larger areas its old technology but they've added graphical enhancements to make it appear decent
I didn't know BF3 DLCs are coming on 360 first?!!
they aren't....look at the picture again lol there is a 6 and 6 is for MW3 lol numbers 2,3,4,6 are for MW3 numbers 1,5 are for BF3
Most likely PC first or all at the same time..
COD3 Engine *fixed*
I dont get the disagrees? I wouldnt say COD3 engine, more like COD4 engine because when you compare MW3 with COD4, there isn't much difference.
does it matter?
Are you still playing your 2600 more than any system? Even myself being a retro gamer still plays my 360 100x more than my NES.
I don't know im a PC Gamer, but I also play occasional xbox.
doesnt matter BF3 Im sure will be a great game but I prefer COD style of gameplay...with so many shooters Ive started to cut back and only by 1 or 2 a year that I know I will get my moneys worth by playing for most of the year= still playing COD BO 3-4 times a week.
NUH UUUUUUUUUUUUUUH MY GAME IS BHETAAR THAN URS
also used in CoD 2 actually ;)
MW3: Leading Platform: None should be xbox360
no its actually not
Correct, they have come out and said that they don't actually have a leading platform and are trying to make the game equal on all 3.
They always say that, and in the end the 360 ends up with no problems at all while PS3 and PC versions are infested with bugs and hackers.
Dude its confirmed to have the DLC first
@emekcrash Agreed. That is one of the reasons why I will be trying BF3 this time, not MW3. I hate coming into hacked games in MW2.. Couldn't they at least leave the game normal - but if you wanted to play hacked /modded games you had to download a patch or something?
@emek I've seen more hacks on 360 MW2 than PS3 MW2.
It's obvious it's the 360, for christ sakes, they played the 360 version at E3 and they have exclusive DLC for 360. This comparison is a little too early. They haven't even released any information officially about the multiplayer. Both games appeal to different people. One is more tactical and the other is more run and gun, quick action. Both will be decent.
Incorrect. if you scaled battlefield down to a few rooms and took out the vehicles and graphics, you'd have a very similar experience. Battlefield just ramps it up about 100x by adding scale, vehicles, bullet physics (bullets drop over a distance and you have to lead a runner or vehicle), classes, etc.. Dice should actually just take closed off sections of their giant maps and have a DM competitor for COD because the experience would just feel more solid.
@The Blind I have no idea what most of your comment is. First off WoW has not been hacked and there are no cheats for it, the only thing that goes on is peoples passwords being hacked and accounts either sold or used to make gold.
BattleField 3 isn't being ported from pc. The ps3 and xbox version both have their own ways of rendering the game. Here is a slideshow for the ps3 version http://publications.dice.se... (it's the 2nd article).
