Vagary.tv takes a look at why Battlefield 3 may have Call of Duty shaking in their boots.
I don't see it as beating COD. Two very different games even though they are both FPS.
Call Of Duty future isn't lookin so bright after mw3.
MW3 seems to be correcting everything that went wrong with MW2. I don't like either MW2 or BLOPS, but IW MIGHT get one this right. The only downside is that their formula is getting old.
Battlefield 3 beta is fun and CoD hasn't been fun since CoD4. i will get battlefield over CoD.
Honestly this COD vs Battlefield or Bad Company is the most retarded fight in video game history. You may as well compare Battlefield to Resistance or Halo. They are completely different games. This "fight" was engineered by EA and Activision to get publicity, like Don King does when he's promoting a fight. And gamers took the bait and went with it. This battle is utterly ridiculous in every way imaginable. And whoever gets involved in needs to wake up to the stupidity of it all.
I won't judge either game until both are fully released -_- i will say i had more fun with bfbc2 then mw2 but this may be because i sucked at mw2 :\ it would be silly of me to base judgement on games from press releases and beta's a full product will determine my judgement
It's Simple. CoD is mainstream. So this means it generates as much fans as it does haters. People are going to go for the underdog(BF3) just like they would in sports. Sad thing is they let it get into their head and pick one over the other instead of buying both. Is BF3 going to beat CoD, no, probably not even close but since everyone sees BF as an underdog they will bash CoD and go for BF3. #Simple
I think Battlefield is much further away from beating COD than people realize. -The hardcore player the multiplayer comes down to preference. If you played enough COD and BF you know which one you like more and you will choose accordingly. -BF is too hardcore to take away any significant chunk of COD's casual audience. People like this will buy BF3 and get frustrated that is not like COD, they might not say it but that's what all their complaints about the game will boil down too. They will return to what they know and like, which is COD. -Next year no BF game. Medal of Honor/Danger Close are going to have to try to compete with Treyarch how are probably working with twice the man power, money and resources. Bloodbath for EA next year -MW3 is a better package than BF3. I know some people are going to flip out for this comment but its true. MW3 is focusing on delivering a great campaign, focusing on delivering a great Co-op experience. Dice is just throwing a campaign and co-op modes in as extras. Doesn't sound like they're a focus for BF3. And I know the "lol who buys BF for the campaign" comments are going to come, but if EA/DICE want Battlefield to be up there with the Halo, Gears, and CODs of the world then they better realize that those franchises deliver amazing complete gaming experiences outside of just multiplayer.
That last comment is so true. EA/DICE might be able to produce a great multiplayer component but there are still a large portion of consumers that play their games single player only. CoD gets a ton of press because of its astronomical sales numbers but only a fraction of that actually take the game online to play with others. If the BF3 campaign feels like a throw in, and all signs are pointing that way, CoD is going to have the more complete package.
Two very different games to be sure i know i play both. BF3 will garner the attention of the hardcore while MW3 will be eaten up by the casuals.
I love battlefield games and will buy all of them on launch day. Call of duty has many years left to be on top. Dispite what some people think , activision shouldnt be worried over battlefield. They are 2 different games. COD is a fast paced shooter which is a style most people love. While battlefield feels like a real war with vehicles and large maps, it will always appeal to a smaller crowd. Battlefield 3 will be more successful then any other battlefield game but it wont beat COD yet. I say it would be crazy to not buy both. Each game offers a different style of gameplay.
now this is getting annoying. just like one of them GTA 4 mod articles
