Could Activision's annual Call of Duty releases be the franchise's downfall - EA DICE has released a statement saying that this is not the way forward for Battlefield.
Activition does too with 15 levels of prestige >_>
Prestige is retarded. What's the point of losing all your stuff and going back to square one fifteen times? They're talking about the fact that people aren't going to up and leave BF3 a year after it launches like people do with Call of Duty.
i totally agree on that. there is no difference between 1st prestige and 10th prestige. there the same weapons over and over again. i like how battlefield spreads your guns and gadgets out across the whole leveling up.
EA DICE offer longevity??? make sense to me
both will be great games, battlefield for an epic war sence of feeling and cod for a fun quick arcade game with my mates from school, it will be uncharted that will win me over for longetivity, i mean that BETA WAS AMAZING
Or play both and you have the double amount of longevity. Why limit yourself!?
Because with one of those, we've played it 5 games before and it's not getting any better and the other is new and a better experience overall in every section, unless you want kill streaks to play instead, then COD is for you.
I think that there has been some improvements in CoD. And why make something entirely new when the Game is already pretty good and millions of people play it everyday. I'm sure MW3 will be great Fun. But I don't troll on every article and make one game look bad, that's just cheap. If you don't want one game -> don't comment and care. But I'll buy both games.
Gameplay doesn't get old, but game engines do. LOOK AT BATTLEFIELD 3. Same core gameplay from 1942, BF2, 2142, and even 1943. But you know what? The changes, different engines, added features [Not modes like spec ops, zombies, or even killstreaks] make the game and make it fun, even if the core gameplay stays exactly the same. For it to be working for DICE and not for Activision and their developers, you know somebody is doing something better. You don't see people threatening to not buy BF3 because it's the same game. COD need to go back to the roots in COD4 and even COD2. Now they said they'd do that with this game, but all they're doing is herding the sheep until release. Then they will do it again. Wash, rinse, repeat, over and over. I'd have hope for this, but when the people who made COD4 great get fired and take the rest of the crew with them, that makes me not even want to rent the game, since I know that what made it great is gone and only $$$ are seen by Activision today, so you might as well kiss this series good bye. COD will never be the same, COD will never be good again.
im waiting for inside_out's comments...pretty entertaining they are lol.
. " In truth, whispers are mumbling that Call of Duty is slowing decreasing in excitement numbers " No need to whisper weedwacker...the 3 million gamers begging to be a part of the subscription based COD Elite say otherwise. Wait till Activision starts their advertising campaign...lol...Battlefield WHO. :o In regards to the 2 year cycle perfected by the peoples champ... ...You have 2 different devs making a game 2 years apart from each other, works out perfectly. Sledgehammers version of COD should be EXTREME as they were the makers of the criminally underated and underselling Deadspace 1. Treyarch next COD will be phenomenal as well as Activision has given them all the resources they need. I hope to see 2, yep 2 COD next year...how great would that be. \o/ Battlefield 3 is a mess which the beta will ( already has ) confirmed and MOH multi-player was also made by Dice as well so these guys have been technical around 2 years in a row. When did Battlefield 2 launch??? EXACTLY!!!...O_o...It's all BS for the delusional fanboys ^^^^^ who keep kissing EA A33 for giving them half a33 PC ports...yep, I said it. :o EA will no doubt have MOH next year and the fanboys will pat EA on the head as usual for making another fps game like the last one and pretend it's new...Dice will probably do the multi-player...4 YEARS in a row...O_o @Cyborg...thanks for prepping my arrival. ;)
One game developer working on one series is better then Two working on one taking it two whole different directions and pooping on each other. You're logic needs analyzed.
WTF are you seriously talking about? First of all, Dead Space was developed by Visceral Games, and second, this is Sledgehammer Games first ever game they create. So I really don't know what you're talking about. "Battlefield 3 is a mess which the beta will (already has) confirmed" WHAT? The beta isn't even out yet so how do you know? Oh, and before you say it, there's a difference between Alpha test & a Beta. And what resources have Activision given to Treyarch? At least what I know Treyarch takes all the engines and stuff from IW and put it in their game. And you call us EA buttkissers when we support what we think is the superior game? You even state directly that you're a Activi$ion buttkisser with you're title of your comment. And last but not least, DICE has stated that they've been working for this game for 3 years. I bet they won't disappoint with that since it's the Battlefield series, not the bad company series. COD is being worked in 2 years by 2 developers. In 2 years, with 2 developers you could easily build a new engine for the COD series, because the current one is used over and over again (with MINOR improvements). COD has become the Madden of the FPS's. It comes every year with little to no improvements. That's all I've got to say.
C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER! Good job!
ex COD fan bring me bf3!!!! I have a feeling with all this COD versus bf3 talk and all the hype bf3 will do better than any other installment. Im not saying better than COD but better than thy have in the past.
