Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3 – A Generation Gap?

"Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 are the two biggest juggernaut shooters, set to collide this fall. Call of Duty franchise is, without any shadow of a doubt, the Undisputed King of multiplayer shooters on consoles and PC right now. Many shooters in the past few years, have tried to dethrone COD but have failed miserably. But this year, Battlefield 3 is all set to take Modern Warfare 3 head on. It’s closest we’ve seen a war shooter coming to a COD game in terms of overall quality and production values. While it would be next to impossible for Battlefield 3 to outsold Modern Warfare 3 but in terms of quality, BF3 is right up there."

chriski3332603d ago

after seeing the mw3 footage 2day all i can say is battlefield 3 wins

At least make it fair and compare gameplay screenshots from the consoles. Then they are on at least the same generation of hardware. COD is a console game, BF is a PC game

Pandamobile2603d ago

They are both multiplatform games

iamnsuperman2603d ago

I meant because all COD footage is console footage and in the last months it is ported to PC (as it is mainly a console game anyway) its a little unfair to be comparing screenshots to a game that is run on really expensive hardware a large majority will never afford. I still think BF3 footage on the PS3 looks better I was just stating at least make it fairer.

blame activision for not releasing pc shots then.

It's on them if they want people comparing next-gen bf3 to their 360 build of mw3. It's about appealing to the masses and since Battlefield is primarily a pc title...

what's the problem?

Graphics are not everything you know...

3GenGames2603d ago (Edited 2603d ago )

This. But still, in today's world with multiplayer first that's hard to screw up, they mean much more today.

Dart892603d ago

Yea we know but for the best selling game of all time you would think they would have a new engine to give it some better graphics damn game looks like it's still from 07.

IM_A_NINJA2603d ago

MW3 looks NOTHING like COD4. Please be at least be realistic if your going to say something negative about the game. It's not as good of a graphical improvement as MW2 was over COD4, but look at all the internal struggle IW had, if they can give us a fun game that plays more like COD4 and looks like MW2, who is going to complain? There are far more important things then graphics when it comes to games.

Comparing PC graphics in all the BF3 trailers to 6 year old hardware in the Xbox 360 footage for the MW3 trailers isn't really smart to do IMHO.

neonlight452603d ago

Dedicated servers also. I mean Killzone 3 hasn't sold 1/2 of what COD4 has and they have dedi servers.

death2smoochie2603d ago

But it helps...especially when most other games this generation look miles better

RedDead2603d ago (Edited 2603d ago )

Yeah but the reason I look forward to Battlefield is the gameplay. The graphics were a shocking surprise but there we have it anyway, Bad company dropped some stuff to add some new things, now we have everything good about BF2 and everything good about bC2 put into one game. Along with the graphical and destruction upgreades.


BF3 offers more than just Graphics, is better in every aspect.

One of the games has shown 100% high end PC trailers, while the other has showed 100% Xbox 360 footage with it's trailers. Gotta give it to EA on being slick with this tactic. MW3 for me all the way though.

IM_A_NINJA2603d ago

Not sure why you have disagrees Raven. All the Battlefield 3 trailers have been PC. It's not really fair to compare the two games, I think they are targeted at totally different audiences, of course I think EA obviously wants some of what COD get's, just not sure they will get it.

Pandamobile2603d ago

Can you seriously blame them for wanting to show off the game as it's meant to be played?

They've put 4 years of work and tens of millions of dollars in development, R&D, and production to get BF3 to where it is now. Why, why do you want them to ignore that?

They want to show off the game the best they can. And that's what they're doing.

Hufandpuf2603d ago

even the PS3 version of BF3 looked better.

chaldo2603d ago

MW2.1* We saw the new trailer today :)
