E3 2011: Battlefield 3 might put a bullet in Call of Duty (Bitmob)

Modern Warfare might be the king of the hill, but Battlefield 3's built a better hill.

The story is too old to be commented.

IMO it all depends on what the console versions look like compared to what COD is offering. The multiplayer footage i've seen of MW3 on the 360 is freaking hot! What? I'm a sheep? Baaaaaaaaaaa mofo's! Your negative opinion doesn't matter. Battlefield 3? Can't tell you because all they are showing is PC footage. No freaking way i'm gaming on a PC. Those days have come and gone. Anyway, i'm picking up both games on day one.

There has been a few split second glimpses at PS3 builds, However I personally think it all rides on this open beta, If you think about what DICE are aiming for, then it becomes pretty clear this isn't a beta, Its marketing, and if they can showcase all the games features in the beta, They may just have a shot at CoD, its actually an incredibly clever strategy they have taken here once you look at the time frame for the beta and game release

Edit: cleared up some spelling mistakes

MW3 uses the SAME OLD ENGINE that the last 5 games used.. I can't wait to get my hands on Frostbite 2.0! BF3 looks amazing! Thumbs up for Dice taking their games to the next level and leaving COD to use their stale engine.

Not to mention the gameplay is much better in BF games and the destructible environments in multiplayer create a whole new aspect that COD completely lacks

I'm very excited to see footage of the 360 version of B3. On PC, it looks unreal. The game is going to be insane!

I don't see the issue with the COD engine tbh. It's definitely not the best graphics around but who cares. Whoever tells me that the MW3 trailer looks horrible is either a graphics whore or they're lying to themselves. Black Ops also looks great imo.

Not a single person i know has complained about the graphics. It's only the N4G haters and pixel counters that run their mouth like their word actually matters. The game is great fun. That's really all that matters to me. However, not everybody will like the same games. If you don't like the game, why waste your time hating on it? It doesn't make very much sense.

Personally I play COD because a huge chunk of my friends play it. I only have one friend that plays Bad Company 2, but he's in Korea now so we're never on at the same time. BF is definitely a better game, but I doubt my friends will switch unless there are 32+ player battles.

When they say bullet they really mean pellet, right? CoD = unstoppable.

There are gamers and then there are CODL's (Call of Duty Lovers). The difference is CODL's will buy COD regardless of how shite it is, how overrated it is and will refuse to acknowledge another game let alone a another FPS.

This COD looks no different to the last COD. Same ol' story, just a different day. Then again, if someone is dumb enough to pay for more of the same underrated nonesense year in and year out, then by all means activision has every right to rob you of your money again and again.

I'm sorry, but since when is someone dumb for playing a game they enjoy?

I'd rather play that and be called dumb than play a game I don't like just for some nerd's approval on the internet.

Edit: and yeah you're right CoD is UNDERrated. Dumbass.

fei-hung2688d ago

Nerd? Not been called that before, but I do agree I was a bit harsh calling those who enjoy COD dumb.

I suppose ignorant is a better word since they buy and play one game and one game alone and ignore any other game which hasnt got the COD title in its name.

I know it may be hard to believe but there are a whole bunch of gamers who just buy a particular franchise and nothing more. I know this since I know a whole bunch of them.

I don't expect anything less out of battlefield 3, imo it will be the new king of shooters. The big problem is will it sell more? Unfortunately more then likely no, CoD fans are loyal ones, and the haters are just as loyal lmao.
