Infinity Ward are not concerned with the competition this holiday season even though it's going to be a crowded market.
Yeah, and for some reason, you seem to win when there are better games ¬¬
COD does what COD does best and that's be COD. The series has no real competition and if you think Battlefield 3 is COD competition well son your seriously mistaken. Battlefield 3 is in it's own league and actually getting to the point that it may start to compete with the Arma series...kinda. But BF3 and COD are entirely two total different experiences. COD = Hollywood script shooter BF3 = Total team warfare
BF3 is no where near the Arma series... If the alpha is anything to go by, it pretty much is a bigger version of MoH. EA/DICE are clearly aiming for CoD's market, so it seems they consider the experiences to be comparable.
Yeah, Ive said the same in past comments, Im no kid and I prefer COD. MW3 has earned its place at the top for its acessible, but varied gameplay, its easy to play but skill takes time, gamers like it....certainly arent going to stop just because the elite n4g says they know whats best for the rest of us gamers all over the world, hell why dont we just hand over my paycheck, let you guys buy whats best for us. Ok, a lil too dramatic, but thats sort of how many here sound. lol, n4g is like an alternate reality, I visit several gaming stores in my local area weekly, talk to employees, fellow gamers, and friends, I wouldnt say they ALL, love COD series, but I swear its only n4g/BF3 diehards who Ive ever heard say it sucks seriously think its garbage, fact is most I know prefer it more than the competition, like me, most arent kids. I play the game quite, often, havent played BF in a long time, sold it but COD isnt easier, I did well in BF, just dont like it much, the reason I stick to COD is because its more fast pace, more action focused on shooting your enemy, strategy shooters have their place, I just feel both games are so similiar so I choose the one with the better gameplay *imo.
This year is a bit different, because releasing in November along side MW3 is Uncharted 3, The Metal Gear Solid Collection, Skyrim, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, HALO: Combat Evoled Remake, Forza 4 and Saint's Row 3. And then of course theres Resistance 3 and Gears of War 3 in September, and BatMan: Arkam City, Rage and BF3 in October. For me personally, I've already preordered Resistance 3 and I will be pre-ordering Uncharted 3 also. I'm more interested in Battlefield3 than MW3, but I haven't decided what I want to do regarding the whole Steam/Origin debacle. If MW3 dominates over all these games I just listed, then there is no hope for gaming, but fortunately I think MW3 is going to have a tougher time this year as opposed to the last 3 years..
Ima pwn some n00bs wif my 360 no scope skilz soon.
evry1 knows whch game wil sell most this year!!! hope it turns gud in quality 2....:-((
This turf belongs to Battlefield and with Battlefield 3, DICE are not going to stop short of hammering the nail in the coffin as hard as possible.
It's kind of a catch 22... I prefer Battlefield, but if all the CoD players come over to Battlefield, then the games will be full of 12 year olds calling me the N bomb and retards who think a capture the flag match is actually team deathmatch. I want DICE to do well in sales, but I don't want the migratory turds that come with it.
. It's nice and refreshing to hear a dev tell it like it is. The COD path is littered with wannabe devs, games, delusional fanboys and in the case of EA, PUBS, that try and scam their way into the number one spot...COD, the peoples champ, always rises to the top. @ Septictank...lol...the only coffin that will be nailed shut will be EA-Dices's parasite Battlefield game. You as well as other delusional fanboys missed the COD train, the one that knock all those silly " look ma, I snipe from the spawn " games right off the track. Millions and millions of gamers have spoken...I hope your still around in November when you will see how many kids trade in Battlefield 3 for the undeniable peoples champ, many years running...COD MW3. btw...It's great to see guys like Jason and Vince capicola claim poor when Activision had agreed to pay them 18 MILLION each for their 2 years of participation in MW2...poor guys. 18 mil each wasn't enough tho, they wanted to go to EA and take the franchise with them. The rest of IW will share in a pool set up by the GREAT Activision for 84 million...that's 800,000 each employee plus salary for working 2 years. Damn, that Activision is a greedy bunch huh...O_o
"I hope your still around in November when you will see how many kids trade in Battlefield 3" You nailed it...."KIDS" The irony is KIDS won't even buy BF3 as the game actually requires skill to play unlike COD games. It's the reason you have 7 year old children playing COD and how Activision made the game to suit them. You can keep your dated gameplay and game engine and Aim Assist. Let the grown ups play BF3. And Inside_Out... Don't you get tired of trolling EVERY SINGLE BF3 or COD thread claiming COD is God? You went:
Funny thing is, I got sick of BFBC2, I got bored with winning all the time, so I started playing COD where every time I run around a corner I got shot in the face. COD is more for me, In black ops I like fighting my way out of spawn traps, I find it fun and challenging.
Missed the CoD train? I dove off while it was moving just to get away. You and the kids have fun with your casual shooter, just don't pretend it's anything other than a casual friendly shooter, hence more sales.
"No concern", well Infinity Ward really have no reason for concern. The COD name alone will ensure it's a success, and naturally Infinity Ward always go above and beyond the call of duty (yes, I just did that...). I have high hopes for Battlefield 3 though, and EA may well yet pull a firecracker out of it's ass and deliver a top quality title on both single and multiplayer fronts... even then, it's not likely to outsell MW3, unless Pachter says so of course.
Why be concerned when you have one of the biggest franchises on the planet?
This is what I was thinking. Hmm, he could be indirectly stealth trolling said competition. It's almost as if they're saying, "They don't matter. They couldn't touch us anyway." Well, I'd say Bowling's got a lot of swagg for a game dev.
"we're used to competition" not really..
I shall be buying & enjoying both Modern Warfare 3 & Battlefield 3. :)
Of course there is no concern for competition, Call of Duty is more like a religion than it is a game
FCK YOU COD!!!!! Everyone's trying to copy your success and selling out their original formulas and dumbing things down so they can attract your casual pew pew players. I've got a looong list, and I have yet to cross Battlefield 3 off from it. COD YOU RUINED THIS GENERATION OF GAMING!!!!
Then don't play it
Yea in fact I think I might just quit gaming. All the deepness and sophistication in my favorite games franchises are MURDERED by COD. So yea that wasn't just a COD hate comment. It's a gaming hate comment.
Why can't people just decide for themselves what's best for them? I swear, people on here choose their favorite game and pretend that somehow suddenly they're part owners of the company. Why are you guys trying to constantly sell me a game that I don't want? If I don't like battlefield, I'm a noob right? Also, if I play CoD, I'm a little kid with bad language. CoD is massive success, so they must be giving people what they want or else, why would they play it? They play it because it's what they like and believe it or not, when someone goes from a 60fps game to a 30fps game, it feels laggy to them. They may not realize that it's 30fps, but they'll feel like it's heavy or choppy because their eyes are used to the smoothness of CoD.
Of course, used to the competition and brushing off your shoulders since you've been winning. Unfortunately, just like Charlie Sheen, you're fucked up.
