Battlefield 3 developer: war with Call of Duty is getting "tiring"

According to DICE, their "war of words" between Battlefield and Call of Duty is getting tiring.

EA started it. They wanted to "take down" Call of Duty with Battlefield.

If Battlefield 3 doesn't match the newest Call of Duty installment in sales, now and forever, (much like Killzone) then it is forever inferior?

Of course I personally do not favor such a ridiculous, one-dimensional notion. But if popular opinion does sway that way, then I guess it will be #1 on the hit list on N4G at least. To a grand majority of N4G's participating audience, that is all that is required.

Sales and server numbers are usually the factors considered, however skewed they may be. If we are talking about the quality of the product, then it's up for dispute.

People love this stuff though. Every article discussing the feud is eaten up and argued over constantly. Personally, I can't stand it. I really don't have a preference for one over the other. It won't stop until Call of Duty does, and that won't happen any time soon.

Battlefield is just so much more realistic. The graphics look better, the sounds sound much more crisp and realistic, and the game itself is just focused on more realistic scenarios. Call of Duty is the Transformers of the war game genre. It's all flashy and hip, but with less substance. It's a great game, but for realism, I go with Battlefield. For just fun with friends, occasionally I'll pop in MW2 (and soon MW3).

BF is not realistic. Vehicles regain health., Gameplay is dry and boring since you get shot from far away since the maps are big. who wants to stay prone all day to prevent from getting shot?

Pay attention, bud. I said "more" realistic. Neither games are realistic, since they're both just that: "games". And I personally love the big maps. I don't feel so confined and it's not all corridor gameplay. And it takes a lot of skill to snipe someone from so far away. It's not like in CoD where a sniper rifle shoots perfectly straight no matter how far away. There's actually noticeable bullet drop, which has to be accounted for when taking a shot from a long distance.

There's no war, it's been a one sided attack.

I don't know but its getting annoying and somewhat childish. Fanboys and editors isn't making it any better.

Well then the Battlefield developer should tell EA to stop acting like idiots, and talking so much crap every second they get.

Makes me think what would happen if both got cancelled and what would be the next "war" to debate...

[Dark Souls vs. Skyrim yuck!]

Of course it's tiring. CoD has nothing to fight back with so BF3 constantly has the leverage.
