As good as battlefield 3 is gonna be I'd doubt it because Cod has a big fanbase and we all know they sell like HOT CAKES When a new one drops.
BF series is better than Call of Duty as a game. Fanboys can argue sales all they want. But Its not like Bad COmpany set the world on fire. You don't have to sell trillions to warrant a sequel. Just enough, and with less money.. Naughty Dog, Dice, etc.. it seems they make better games than anyone else. So what matters to you as far as 'victory' is concerned..? Good game, or bad game with a following like madden that don't care about a games quality/performance/bugs..but just care about fragging friends..?
Maybe the 100Mil bucks EA is gonna spend on marketing, will overtake CoD
Probably not for good, but it could initiate a great battle! CoD is the reason military shooter developers have stepped it up! They are trying to out do everything about CoD in an effort to get some of that 20+ million gamer pie!
COD is for unskilled people :)
In terms of quality it has already done that, sales wise only a miracle will do ....
nope both games are completly different so why do people keep comparing them.
Doesn't have to. Keep the codpieces playing their game and the bf people playing ours. More than enough room for both. Also, people compare them because they are both more or less military fps.
Does it need to? Are we only allowed to have one warfare FPS? Pointless article as usual found on N4G.
The Call of Duty brand is gargantuan, no amount of good reviews will give Battlefield 3 the sales edge. It will take a large amount of iterations in the series to garner the success that Call of Duty has today.
to answer the article title: yes in terms of awesomeness and quality of game design
If it can get a decent foothold in sales this year then yes but over the period of a few years, not immediately
i wouldnt want it to. not coz ima die hard fan of any one of them but competition is always great. i wouldnt want only one option when it comes to games. look at fifa for example. they had the same gameplay mechanics for years and years and only until they had some competition from PES did they start progressing again.
Not this year. Battlefield 3 will b EPIC!!!!!! COD is just to big of a franchise right now
"Can Battlefield Knock Call of Duty Out for Good?" Remove the 'Can' and the question mark. Add "Will" in between 'Battlefield' and 'Knock'. Fix'd.
Battlefield wont do anything to COD WITHOUT a Real TDM mode(not squad deathmatch), COD is playable with or without teamwork and is usually fun for what its worth. Battlefield relies too much on teamwork and for people who only play with randoms and get horrible teams they will usually have a bad experience with the game and stop playing. Basically COD= fun by killing people and Battlefield=fun by working together with people.....which one do you think is easier to do?
BF3 will be the better game quality wise etc. However, COD fanbase is huge, and COD is the Military FPS style game for gamers with little to no skill in shooter games. It's one of the reasons it's played so much. Anyone can pick it up and get kills. It's np KZ3, No BF3, No Ghost Recon, etc. Little skill is involved.
