We asked you to decide and the results are in. See if Battlefield 3 or Modern Warfare 3 was voted for the most.
really ign?? desperate for hits?
It's a simple outcome really.... quality wise---> BF3 Quantity wise(sales)---> MW3 The winner... Uncharted 3 :P
On the internet BF will win because this is where all the haters and PC BF fanboys are but in the real world Cod wins. 13Million people in a week compared to a few thousand trolls online!!! EA got slapped in the face,Cod killer my ass.**Gets my sniper,Quick scope,head shot**BF3 got Killed..KILLCONFIRMED >:D
Let's not play the douche eh? Which is better is pure opinion, sales could show which is more popular nothing more. No one (other than complete idiots) from fanboys to EA actually expected BF3 sales to be up there with COD, they hoped to gain a piece of the pie and judging by their franchise topping results, EA should be happy and deem their outcome as successful. Both games have been hugely profitable and both have provide countless gamers hours of fun. Enough with the whining and arguing.
Yeah, your typical COD fanboy right here.
@WANNAGETHIGH I think most people are just riding the COD wave and that is the reason it has so many sales. Battlefield 3 is the better game all around but most people just buy COD because they are more familiar with the brand.
OH I get it now! All the fanboys have one bubble. So I should just bypass all the one bubble gangsters.
Brittany Spears sells a ton of records but can she sing better than Mary J. Blidge? HELL NO! but some may prefer Brittany over Mary and that's their choice. Now the same with MW3 vs. BF3. we all knew MW3 was gonna sale way more than BF3 but looking at the two BF3 is a far better product than MW3 but some prefer the MW3 game play over BF3 and again that's their choice. *I'm basing this off of the PC versions cause that's my platform although i've seen the 360 versions* SALES figures never determine which is better cause if that were true then a Honda Civic would better than a Ferrari. Sorry but i'll take a Ferrari over a Honda every second of the week. BF3 = Ferrari MW3 = Honda and while some of you argue over sales figures Bobby Kotick is swimming in your cash. Happy Gaming no matter what you play.....just practice flying on empty servers you No0bs!
Honda = $25,000 Ferrari = $250,000 MW3 = $59 BF3 = $59 Your comparison = Fail
@ATI, you want to compare games to cars? OK...you say sales doesn't equal quality, but in the entertainment world it does. The best selling video game franchises are Mario, Pokemon, COD. The best selling artists are The Beatles, Elvis, Michael Jackson. You can't have a top selling all time product and not have quality, it doesn't happen.
By that logic, Justin Beiber wins.
BF3 should have won graphics on pc and that's it... I bought BF3 on ps3 expecting to be blown away and I was not. It had a very unspectacular campaign and while COD may not be uncharted at least it's campaign was easy to follow. Graphics for ps3 of COD was alot better than BF3, and while battlefields MP was good compared to COD it is still just a copy and paste of bad company 2 so MW3 wins for me. I understand why some people like BF3 more but those people should be the ones with the superior pc versions because BF3 on consoles is just shameless ports.
"while battlefields MP was good compared to COD it is still just a copy and paste of bad company 2 so MW3 wins for me." yes there are ways that bf3 does feel like bc2 but there are also ways it improves on it (believe it or not but prone changes alot) and what about mw3 is it not a copy of mw2, and the original mw? your statement is kind of invalid
"kind of invalid" dafuck are you talking about? It's COMPLETELY invalid. It's the most invalid statement in the history of anything. What I had for lunch would be a more valid statement.
@karinag3 im giving isa_scout the benefit of the doubt because playing bf3 compared to bc2 its hard NOT to find similarities between the two but to say its a copy and paste is wrong. i believe mw3 is a true copy and paste with very little changes that dont do anything to enhance the current experience
in my opinion bf3 wins in all but campaign. i havent played mw3 but im pretty sure it has a better campaign then bf3, something was missing in the campaign..multiplayer wise to each his/her own but i feel that if you want the closest military war experience on a videogame console bf is where to go. if you are more of an "arcady fast kills and perks" type of guy then mw multiplayer suites you. as for graphics i think we all know the answer to that =)
SALES REALLY DOESN'T MEAN QUALITY @ ALL.... HELL, CoD is quickly turning into the "TWILIGHT" movie of video games.... sales alot, makes alot of money, but is still CRAP overall with the same repetitive stuff over and over again.....
battlefield 3 is far superior to MW3. enough said
Battlefield 3 is better because its a SIMULATION MILITARY SHOOTER. Cmon I thought it was obvious by now! Thats like comparing GT5 and F4 to Burnout and Midnight Club
BF3 is hardly simulation. Try Arma or OP:Flashpoint.
Interesting post this one. You see, according to IGN's poll B3 is better by a long shot, but there's nothing to say that if IGN ran the exact same poll again MW3 wouldn't come out on top. Why? Because the survey results were influenced by just under 300,000 gamers - a miniscule number considering both games have sold in their millions across all platforms. I'm simply saying that one shouldn't buy B3 over MW3 because of this video. MW3 is still stellar in its own right, and my personal belief is the B3 vs MW3 debate is superfluous. Neither title is superior or inferior because they are fundamentally different; one’s a gritty, convincingly authentic simulation, the other a stylised, cinematic arcade shooter. In summary, reviews and comparisons are not gospel, but guides upon which we can call when buying a game. Like it or not, inidividual reference will always be the ultimate deciding factor. Joe Blogs might prefer B3, but that doesn't mean I will.
For me? I compare 'best bits' Best MW3 bit? No clue really Best BF3 bit? 64p conquest Caspian Border (PC) This BF3 best bit blows MW3 out of the water. This 'best bit' with its Frostbite 2 engine running is just an amazing piece of gaming software. Mw3 simply does not have an answer to that. (BF3 has many 'not so good bits'. I ofr one do not care for the campaign, and TDM is a game mode unworthy of BF3)
It was never a fight...lol I think maybe only in the minds of EA? and then it probably wasn't more then a marketing ploy on their part. This was a first round KO and MW3 is the clear winner.
That was a silly comment but I do like that Futurama episode with Noticeably F.A.T
I just like flying and driving. They are very enjoyable and I am glad I chose the game which had them. No regrets there. Except a little in which I could have pre-ordered Skyrim instead of buying BF3.
I bet if the SP for BF3 had a little spark in it other than just being from solid to boring, then BF3 would beat MW3 in every category. Because let's be honest, the only one BF3 should have lost was the campaign.
who gives a fucking shyte about sales. sales doesnt make a better game. all sales do is line the pockets of your Gods. the IW gods are laughin down at you all knowing the put 2 hrs max into the development of your 60 buck game. pmsl. whos laughing now
