The only thing MW3 has got on BF3 is 60 Frames Per Second and possibly Spec Ops ( because that looks rather fun). Other than that - its BF3 all the way for me.

-Alpha2556d ago (Edited 2556d ago )

Don't forget split-screen and more modes. If there is one thing I love about COD, it's the variety of modes. They better deliver on new modes. MW3 needs to redo everything IMO, the impact and intensity of the game is all gone. I love my S&D and that's something I can't get in Battlefield, but the value of that mode and the intensity and competition I felt in COD4 just isn't there anymore.

BTW, this is old! Bowling has already noted these reasons and now websites like NowGamer are asking basic questions and getting recycled answers to post as news.

malol2556d ago

even 60 FPS is nothing to me since im playing on PC
and going to have those ((almighty)) 60 FPS by this PR guy's standards

JohnP262556d ago

Its called Rush. S&D for BF.

lil Titan2556d ago (Edited 2556d ago )

have they fixed the camper problem on MW3...what no? thats a real surprise 4 COD games and still no solution smh real nice guys

evrfighter2556d ago

I'll be shooting for more than 60fps. If it plays like alpha did I'll be hovering around 70-80fps

I'm considering adding another 6970 should the bf3 benchmarks justify going crossfire. would like to sit around 100fps as that's why I bought this 3d monitor.

Armyntt2556d ago

lil titan, seriously. Have you never played BF. Theres just as many campers. Anytime ive played theres a ton of campers.

MW3 Dev: "Why Modern Warfare 3 Is Better Than Battlefield 3...."

because you are delusional, keep your noobish and higly aim assisted fps while i will fly my jet, ambush vehicles and play on 64 player maps.

lil Titan2555d ago (Edited 2555d ago )

Armyntt i never said there wasn't a camping problem on BF, but the fact is you can blow up where they are. If there in a building or hiding in bushes one grenade, RPG or mortar strike ends that spot. only problem when camping is a big issue is when players base rape. so what was that about camping in BF?

-Alpha2555d ago

@lil Titan

You are saying that camping can be overcome in BF.

It can also be overcome in COD. Throw a flash grenade, throw a stun grenade, call in a UAV, use motion sensor, throw a grenade, use a killstreak, etc

There are numerous ways to deal with campers in COD as well

lil Titan2555d ago

-Alpha not really its real easy to shoot blindly when someone throws a flash or stun. 9 times out of ten especially when the person is in a real cramp place the camper will win. most kill streaks only work if your outside if i can remember its been a long time since ive played COD. im just staying there is a somewhat a permanent way to deal with campers on BF where you can destroy the spot where as COD is very unbalanced. and im not saying destruction makes the game better but it does. but look at resistance where not every thing is destructible there is somewhat balanced way to deal with campers. and im not even going to mention boosters on that game its incredible what lengths these people are willing to go. in only saw a booster once on BF and it was really cheating and dont know how the hell this guy got over or near 15,000 points in one game. i dont care if the other person is a medic and keeps bringing the person back there is no way to get that in one conquest game with out cheating some how

wow all he can say is 60fps for shame COD for shame

BraveToaster2556d ago

Yeah, and chances are it won't even be at 720p. None of the Call of Duty games are even 720p on 360.

300 or so FPS on BLOPS bro. PC eats IT ALL

Lazy_Sunday2556d ago (Edited 2556d ago )

I play both BCBF2 and CoDBO avidly. I love them both to death for their strengths and weaknesses as EQUALS. So beware, my basis for the MW3 and BF3 fan-war is -- wait for it -- unbiased. Shocking, huh?
@-Alpha: BF3 will have co-op campaign, as well as a large variety of modes including regular Team Deathmatch (not SQTDM) to appease the CoD lovers, larger more realistic "battlefields", not to mention vehicular combat or destruction.
It will be fucking awesome, there is no question about it.
@padz1: MW3 does have more going for it than just 60FPS and spec ops--it's bringing back quick-scoping and adding ranked qs lobbies (finally), we've got the perks we've always wanted minus last stand and commando, flak jacket seems to be nerfed back to blast shield and the killstreaks don't seem nearly as annoying as Black Ops or MW2--as the more potent ones require more than 10 little kills to acquire and don't look like major spawn-camper tools. I just hope we can use bottom attachments with red dot--it pisses me off that I can't have a grip with a scope at the same time. And if Infinity Ward is designing these maps, praise the lord, since their maps aren't as easy to spawn camp on.

I like how they can't really talk about the game at all, instead it's "OUR GAME IS BETTER BECAUSE IT RUNS AT 60 FPS ON CONSOLES"

Dart892557d ago

What do you expect panda that's all they got on it.I was expecting them to say our game looks better than BF3 to really Lmfao only moronic kids think MW3 looks better than BF3 xDD.

awi59512556d ago

Well i can make a square block move on screen on consoles at 60fps but that doesnt mean its a great game lol.

StayStatic2556d ago

EA Replies with:

"You've got every reason to be nervous. Last year Activision had a 90 share in the shooter category. This year, Battlefield 3 is going to take you down to 60 or 70. At that rate, you'll be out of the category in 2-3 years. If you don't believe me, go to the store and try to buy a copy of Guitar Hero or Tony Hawk."

P.S. your avatar ftw Pandamobile =D

CernaML2556d ago

Ohhh man. That last line was absolute sweet ownage.

cooperdnizzle2556d ago

I agree with you. Activision always does this. They have a really popular game for 5 6 years, and then it falls off the map. Because they always do the same thing. They make a game and release the same game over and over and over, with minor tweaks here and there. Same thing will happen with COD. History has a way of repeating it self. I also think they are some of the laziest developers none to man. Maybe if they would try to do new things with there games, but ehhh whats the point if you're making so much money! Gamers are the real losers here!

KwietStorm2556d ago

Damn I didn't even know they said that. Might as well have just squatted over Kotick's face.

BreakNeckSpeed2556d ago

He never said it was better than Battlefield. I hate bullshit articles like this that just take quotes out of context. He took a slight dig at battlefield at battlefield playing up 60 fps? 95 % percent shooters on the market all run at 30 or below - strictly talking consoles. The only other top tier game that I can think of right now that runs at a constant 60 would be RAGE, which isn't even competing with CoD the same way EA is with Activision. EA have been talking a lot of crap lately with the latest outburst from them being from a one; Mr.Brown. They need to mellow out and let their game do the talking.

I'm no Fanboy and will be buying both games. Both very Different styles, but still very fun in their own unique ways. Shit tossing isn't good for the industry, it only ends in disappointment.

cooperdnizzle2556d ago

I am sorry for ya man. You will be buying both games. Which both are kinda of the same game over and over! At least BF3 is trying to make strides to improve their game. COD developers don't care. And release the same game year after year. I will be buying BF3 but only cause i want to run it on my pc and see the amazing graphics. I am sure the story won't be to great. And i am a story gamer.

On topic, i think the article is funny. "Charters that people have loved for the past 6 years." LOL i can't think of one character in call of duty that i have ever cared about. Can't even think of a part of the story were i went o man that is cool. Nobody cares about call of duty story. Mainly cause there isn't one even worth mentioning. Let alone a character that anybody cares about!

BreakNeckSpeed2556d ago

@ cooperdnizzle

Have you ever cared for any of the characters in the Bad Company series? :L

cooperdnizzle2556d ago

Nope Breakneckspeed, i have never cared for any of the characters in bad Company either. And i have played everyone of them. Neither of these games off anything in story or charter departments. Like i said i will only get BF3 cause they have done a lot with the graphics and looks like it may have a fun factor and something new to it. COD looks like the same game, and stopped being fun 3 years ago.

gamingdroid2556d ago

I agree, he was just talking about their advantages not necessarily saying anything about BF3, unless that is the only shooter that run at 30fps.

I suppose if you are so attached to any one game that when somebody says anything positive about their product, you take that to mean a dig against your preferred one I can see that ... but then we have another term for people like you. It's called fanbois.

60FPS also affects how games control. It's a huge part of FPS tradition. The faster the game, the more responsive it tends to be. When a game is coded at 30FPS it's because they've barely managed to fit all that quality and aesthetic beauty onto consoles for our enjoyment. While this is a good aspect, and I know it will be for BF3 since it's made by DICE--but games like Crysis 2 don't tend to run well because the hardware simply isn't there, or it wasn't coded down enough.
CoD relies heavily on 60FPS to appeal to its almost on-rails-like shooting, fast action-paced nature.

You're right, they shouldn't basically be saying "OUR GAME IS BETTER BECAUSE IT RUNS AT 60FPS ON CONSOLES."

Though, I'll agree it isn't "better," I'll probably have just as much fun playing BF3 (if not more) as I do playing MW3. We'll have to wait until the beta for BF3 next month to see what all the fuss is all about firsthand, now won't we? :)
