How about we wait till both games are actually out before we start saying one is better than the other.

I don't see BF3 and MW3 as competing games. They don't offer the same gameplay and I think most core gamers will be happily investing in both. Casual gamers on the other hand will gravitate towards MW3 because it is more accessible. I play Halo Reach, BFBC2 and Black Ops. Each offers something different and when I'm fatigued by one, I play one of the other two.

guy from shacknews said that to play B3 on PC in the same level as the videos i will need a 1000$ gaming PC, is this true?

@above, He said for SURE it will be as good as shown. It's probably a little overpowered, but it's better than underpowered.

It's best to wait until the requirements come out, and the game is close to release to get the lowest price on the pc stuff.

While it may not seem like it much in the video. These guys are insiders who have seen and played alot of both games which can't be discussed to the public yet. So their just letting us know which one is gonna be better from what they've seen,played and know.

I love the part about when they're discussing what BF3's story is about and they're all basically like, "who gives a shit."

a_squirrel2453d ago

I do.

The sad thing is when BF3's multiplayer is more over-the-top than MW3's singleplayer (and multiplayer in my humble opinion)

I didn't think they are going for over the top movie action. I think they're going for over-the-top believable action. (If you get what I mean)

I felt like BF3's story was more believable, and therefore, more ingaging than MW3's. It seems like there's always crazy stuff going on, but you're never really afraid of dying.

If in BC2 or BF2, stuff was happening all around you, you'd freak out. I usually run in zigzags hoping I don't get sniped! *laughs*

Story in BF2 is like telling the Army to come up with the best combat situation. It's not about the plot, its about the action. I'll play the story of BF3 but I don't expect it to be the best ever. What I've seen so far is amazing, but in the end its about personal taste.

a_squirrel2453d ago

It reminded me of MOH's campaign (which I liked better than COD's) only... better. O.O

Hufandpuf2453d ago

I liked MOH's story better too. It wasn't perfect but I think that if Danger Close had more time to polish up the game, it wouldn't be considered as bad as people think. On top of that I smartly kept my copy of MOH for the BF3 Beta, and I know a lot of people traded in theirs

Comparing the two is really an insult to Battlefield
