Last year, it was all about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 vs. Battlefield 3 .
While the sales contest was never in question, EA made one thing abundantly clear:
Their goal is to steal "market share" away from Activision's blockbuster CoD franchise. They say they achieved that goal with BF3 and they're obviously viewing this little war as a marathon rather than a sprint. Therefore, they must be hoping to cut into the seemingly insurmountable CoD lead again this year.
However, many will say they don't have as strong a horse this time around. A lot of people are looking forward to Medal of Honor: Warfighter and in all honesty, we anticipate something pretty damn special from developer Danger Close. But does it have the punch to really steal a few more fans away from CoD? Possibly. Some have noticed that hardcore shooter fans seem to be less excited for Black Ops II , at least when compared to last year's hype for MW3. Therefore, maybe EA doesn't need another Battlefield installment to gain a little more ground in the EA vs. Activision throw-down for FPS supremacy.
How do you see it shaping up?
