I wouldn't really expect that to be honest. I think people that "defect" to BF3 will do so because BF3 looks awesome and because MW3 doesn't really look any different from the last few CoDs, not just because of Elite (although for some people that were planning on getting both I'm assuming Elite may put them off the idea of MW3, at least for a while). The CoD faithful that always buy the games won't change even with Elite.

I say buy BF 3 now, buy CoD later when its cheap.
