CVG: We have to say that DICE seems to have put together a pretty impressive package so far, especially considering that everything that's found its way onto the net has apparently been from alpha stage testing.
I'm done discussing this.. They are 2 completely different multiplayer games with 2 different appeals. We have been over this.
So true. Expext these types of articles to flood N4G in November. If i had the time and money i would get both because the offer different experiences and saying one is better than the other is relative (depends on what online experience you want)
see this is why I'll never take CVG seriously. "discuss" is old and pops up only in forum posts and this topic has been discussed to hell and back
What are you talking about!?!! I have never, ever read any articles about BOTH (gasp) MW3 and BF3 being discussed. I mean NEVER! /sarcasm
I'll be getting both. But I am way more excited for BF3. Mostly because it will be pushing my new PC rig to the max. Chances are I will be playing MW3 on the 360 because that is what most of my family/friends play it on.
With that stupid logic, nothing in the world is comparable, since everything is different.
^^You're an idiot.^^
@kaos stfu fag
I'm certainly excited for both games, but one thing's for sure, I won't be buying BF3 until MW3 releases. Up until now, I've seen hundreds of BF3 articles saying how awesome it is and only 2 or 3 saying that it's not going to be great. While it's certainly a good thing, but no game is perfect and I won't make my mind up until I actually see some true criticism for BF3, once all the hype wears down.
ARCADE <--- ---> LESS ARCADE = ME LESS ARCADE
Ive said this before and I will say it again..you no a game sucks when you have to down play another game just to get attention...*example...fortza and granturismo...the guys at polyphony dont care 2 cents about fortza...but there was never an article about fortza without mentioning GT5..... Same case here ..the guys behind call of duty dont give a dam about anything battlefield does....but in order for bf to get attention they have to say in some way our game is better then yourse...its kind of sad.......just make your game and hope people like it..that goes to bf and fortza
Are you freaking kidding me?!! CoD calling out BF3 for only having 30 fps when so many games out there like Halo and BC2 had that but nobody complained then, now every complaint from a CoD fanboy for BF3 is "it's not 60fps".
Guy, Battlefield, as a series, has been around longer than CoD. (WAY before CoD4.) Battlefield doesn't need to "get attention." Gamers everywhere are already giving it their full and undivided attention.
Yet they have not done a single interview without mentioning COD. Sure looks like they need "extra" attention...
That's horsecrap, Kaos_VII. I've seen quite a few DICE interviews without them ever mentioning CoD. Go ahead, check out the video below and direct me to the part where Karl-Magnus Troedsson mentions CoD. Way to pull "facts" out of the air!
i hated mw2 multiplayer and i really liked the multiplayer of bfbc2 its more team based and more balanced
I'll lose some of my hope for gaming if MW "2.5" with a greedy service like "cod elite" sells better than BF3 @DrFud Yeah it has some screen tearing on the consoles, but it has a brand spanking new engine.. did you know that the cod engine is over 10 years old?
Battlefield always has screen tearing on consoles
Kinda feel sorry for battlefield now, because they're getting all the cod fanboys who now think hating cod is cool. Even though most of them probably barely played the battlefield series. To be honest I played BF2 and I don't see what BF3 is doing different ( I know cod doesn't change anything for their sequels either) but I don't know where the sudden hype came. From for battlefield, atleast it's challenging the cod series. But I'm not a fan of the size of battlefields battles and hate driving and piloting vehicles in multiplayer so after playing BF2 no BF3 for me
Vehicles... thats what makes them very different games to play. I like the toys so I'll get BF3. I have COD4, keep playing it for a while too. Have fun playin' :-)
Darn it, had I known that COD4 was the same as the others and had offline/online Co-op and Zombies I could have saved some money...;-)
"But I'm not a fan of the size of battlefields battles and hate driving and piloting vehicles in multiplayer" So, in other words, you dislike the major difference that Battlefield offers.
I played BF2 and the vehicles were hard to control and mostly very slow. Vehicles also bore me to hell, but it's not only in BF that I hate vehicles in, I hated tanks in cod5 and most other game. But yeah if thats the major difference that battlefield offers then yeah I hate it
for the record I will be buying BF3 over MW3. But they title is straight stealth-trolling. Make a statement then throw discuss
Get used to seeing these articles becuase it gives them website traffic. It's only gonna get worse as Fall approaches.
Thanks for the permission to discuss. Discuss.
It won't stop MW3 dominance sales wise. CoD players like extremely individual play, bragging rights, small maps. The core gameplay in both franchises is about the same so there's not going to be the huge crossover everyone thinks there is. Also, while the EA/Dice PC marketing has been phenomenal, their console marketing has been pretty poor. With console and multiplayer footage leaking out, the average gamer that has been impressed with BF3 but never played one is now realizing (1) they are not going to get the nice PC graphics (2) They don't actually know anything about the multiplayer gameplay.
Battlefield has always had more depth than COD. COD is only about infantry combat, while Battlefield usually has a few maps dedicated to infantry combat it still has vehicles. Not to mention the class system of Battlefield deals out more depth than CODs straight infantry. Battlefield is just all around a more cerebral package than COD. COD is for Rambo twitch shooter fans that enjoy instant gratification. Battlefield is for people wanting a game with teamwork, tactical, and gratification reached through enacting a plan. IMO Battlefield is the better game.
*RANT* To be honest I'm tiered of what my friends and I call the "COD lag". It's that lag you get when the guy you're shooting in the back turns around like nothing and kills you. Or your RPG disapearing when you clearly shoot it off but die. BF3 or MW3 need to have dedicated servers for consoles. If you truely care about your audience then deliver what they want. At least Epic learned from Gears 2 and is making up for it with dedicated servers and a beta. Cod has been milking it's consumer base with new lag packs. BFBC2 was great and for a while the servers were laggy but they got it str8 for the most part. Now I wan't to see both get it correct str8 out the gate.
all battlefield games run on dedicated servers. whether you have a good connection to the server comes down to a range of factors including: ping, your download speed an you bandwidth.
Good to know. I only had problems when it first came out, but after that it's been awesome.
Battlefield has fire selectors on weapons.... awesome.
I think the fact that you have only 1/3 of the game being developed by Infinity Ward 2.0 (missing some employees that were there from the 1st and 2nd MW games) shows you that this game has bitten off more than it can chew, BF3 aside. We're seeing sub-par singleplayer campaign footage that could have been in MW2. The multiplayer is being developed by Sledgehammer and Raven! Why all these developers? Until I see some impressive footage, this game is just a cash grab using the COD MW title to get rich. Its a fraud. I'll just go play COD 4 MW1 or Black Ops...and of course Battlefield 3!
LOL 100 fact Battlefield 3 = PS3 Modern warfare 3 = X360 why?.. 2 EA developers used PS3 for BF3 demo on jimmy fallon, I guess that they are not interested in X360 for demo.. because their rival Activision is using x360 for MW3 demo which was shown on e3 2011.. And yes speaking of activision, most of their lame fps games are always shown on MS e3 press conference every year so, I think in my personal opion only, than this two giant publishers have their own console favorites.... If activision is using x360 for demo, Ea will fight back and use PS3 for their game demo simple as that
