We won't know how it will run until the beta.

Some of you guys really gotta get off your gaming high-horse, it's like you guys will look down upon and pity anyone who buys MW3.


And this is coming from someone who loved MW2 but is going to get BF3, not MW3.

Agreed. However, I think many of us are more upset as to what activision is not only doing to a once great franchise, but the over saturation of the market. They are using the guitar hero model, and we all saw how well that turned out. I would rather have quality tiles come out years apart than see a great series bled dry by corporate greed. That's not what games are about.

Every game like ever does exactly the same thing, with every franchise. Any successful game, movie, book, or business plan will get a follow up that is pretty much the same thing, just to make more money. You're acting like the "Guitar Hero model' is new. Nintendo has been doing it with Mario for decades. Zelda. Final Fantasy.

In my opinion, FPS games as a whole are the worst. They're ALL like the same thing, packaged differently. It's like MMO's. WoW is the most successful, so everything tries to get a piece of the pie. And I find it funny you talk about Activision "ruining" a game, when Battlefield is being pimped out by EA, which has been milking games like sport franchises for years.

My stance is this. I loved MW2. It was fun. MW3 is basically the same thing as MW2. But with different features, and it looks better. I did not like Battlefield 2 from what I saw. While I do appreciate more team based play, I do not appreciate the slow pace that had come with it. It's like Black Ops. It was much calmer, and had much more balance, but it wasn't as fun. Battlefield is going to port from PC. I don't play shooters on the PC, I'm more of a console guy, and MW, imo, is the better breed of console shooters. It's personal preference, and te fact I don't want to play a game on a console that is going to just be flat out better on the PC.

The entire argument between the two games is completely ridiculous. I likely won't even be getting either game, because there's honestly better games coming out there, and despite what people might think, or see? Both games are going to be the same damn thing as the ones before them, just presented differently.

"Who would buy MW3 over BF3 too? Noobs."

Who would buy any game ever, that came out almost guaranteed as a money grab from something else? I wonder what MW4 and BF4 will be like. Probably more or less the same thing, unless a new system is out by then.

I'm not sure why people say Battlefield is slow paced. It looks like BF3 is going to be more like BC2 than BF2... and there is nothing slow about BC2.

It's kind of funny what kind of games people end up liking. Instead of the realism of BF3, people prefer to play COD and run around with 2 guns shooting people as fast as they can without caring about dying.

I would rather sneak around and fight as a team and try not to die. The goal would be not to die.

Don't get me wrong though, when I played COD and got bored I would run around with 2 UMP45's with Burst Fire on. :lol:
Or even run around Tac Knifing. It's amazing how many kills you would get in MW2 by just running around with the preset build that had the Tactical Knife. People running around with a knife the whole match should never be able to get the highest score.

I had the highest score almost every time when using the Tac Knife.

Dying matters more in COD actually. In COD, the more you die, the higher your opponent's killstreak gets. The team with the better killstreaks usually wins. In BF, you die, you respawn back on a squad member and continue. Your opponent doesn't gain anything by killing you. K/D is the least important stat in BF and is sadly one of the most important in COD.

Unless you're playing defense on Rush/Squad Rush, you get one less ticket if you get killed and respawn without resurrection. Dying maters in a very close game, which happens a lot. I've played with a few Conquest matches with very, very close scores, with the closet being 1-0. It was a thrill, needless to say.

If it is, it will most likely be similar to Forza 2, where there is an install disk, and a play disk. Perfectly fine.


But come on, you're supposed to get it on PC anyways :P

PC's always the best choice, just can't keep up with the comp requirements for most games though.

I have heard rumours of a possible Dinosaur horde mode in BF3.

If these rumours prove true, I will LOVE BF3.

Dinosaur horde mode? That would be a great way to compete with CoD's Zombies.
In fact, I can see myself liking the Dino's way better. I rarely play Zombie Mode.

It's a long shot...but how cool would that be? Starting out with a pistol in some Cretaceous forest, then-OH HOLY BAJEEZUS A RAPTOR!!!

Find an abandoned jet plane, fly it straight at a T-Rex's gaping maw, bail with seconds remaining...that'd be so sick.

Battling a giant T-Rex flying around it in a plane. Epic.

They wouldn't need to think of new enemies...because the types of dinosaurs are endless. There's fast moving crawlers, there's slow moving giants, and everything in between.

If this rumor is fake, they should consider it.

I need help guys.

So I am contemplating whether to buy this or MW3. I know you guys are going to say right away GET BATTLEFIELD 3!!!!!!!!!!!! Because yes I agree Battlefield three does seem like the better game.

The thing is that I am going to get one of these games for my Xbox and I have heard plenty of times that Battlefield is more of PC game.

So what should I do guys? Get Modern Warfare 3 because it is better for a console or get Battlefield 3 because it looks like a better game.

Keep in mind that I do enjoy Cod but at the moment I am looking for a more fresh experience.

The BETA is coming out soon, its open beta so everyone can play BF3.

Just rent both games before buying them if you are unsure, don't let these fanboys of either game steer you into buying one over the other - you can't decide which one is better until you have played both.

If you have a PC that can take the graphics then get it. Even for console it's still gonna look good, just with smaller 24 multiplayer maps.
MW3 to me looks similar to MW2 so I'd rather wait for a price-drop before getting it

Maybe cause its a sequel, thats what is intended to do. Thats like me saying BFBC2 looked similar to BFBC1 well maybe thats cause it was intended to. Infinity Ward is not stupid and going to add all these new fancy features to a game and completely change the layout of the Modern Warfare series just to compete with what EA is doing with Battlefield.

Both games will be successful and you will enjoy one or the other, or both.

The issue is that MW never feels improved in the new iterations, it feels diluted.
