Has anyone noticed something significant about all these Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3 arguments?

The PlayStation 3 fans quickly turn to evidence from DICE and EA that the PS3 version of BF3 will be superior to the 360 version. They also mention EA's deal with Sony; all new content for BF3 will arrive on the PS3 one week early. At the same time, they claim most Xbox fans are only into shooters so unsurprisingly, the lemmenings will flock to any new Call of Duty . Plus, there's Microsoft's deal with Activision concerning the one-month jump on DLC for the 360.

So while both games are for both consoles in question, and the debates that focus on graphics and gameplay continue to rage, so many shots fired seem to come from the endless PlayStation vs. Xbox battle. Is it safe to assume that most PS3 fans tend to favor Battlefield 3 while most 360 fans prefer Call of Duty ? Or is that too big of a judgment?

I'd say too much of a judgement, we dont have any 360 exclusive owners around here to answer that for us… Do we? Cuz honestly, what are you doing HERE if you only own a 360? :P…. I should probably get my flame shield.

Why? I hardly see anything wrong with his grammar other than the obvious internet abbreviations for certain terms, not a big deal and totally readable.

@dkm, I take pride in my grammar, thank you very much. And as already stated, there's nothing wrong with my post other than internet slang, which I see in "Cuz", which Ben himself also does.

FWIW the first sentence is a run-on sentence.

There are actually quite a few errors, but (by internet standards) it's not too bad. I'm a grammar nazi and I wouldn't have criticized it.

Well I got both consoles… And yeah if I get COD it will be on 360. And BF3 on ps3 lol.

360 crowd really is COD oriented. PS3 is more welcoming of the new BF3.

Anyway my live is running out of time so i'll probably just stick to BF3 😀

Too bad pc owns all nowadays lol, I've been playing the bf3 beta on ps3 and pc and wow the difference between is like comparing gta to saints row… 😛

unfortunately, MW3 will trump BF3 sales by a considerable margin, so it doesn't really matter to any one but the fanboys.

I really hope BF3 sells very good. And I really hope MW3 sells less than black ops because of it 😀

Fankiddies will be fankiddies, no matter what, so if there's nothing to compare &/or biatch about, they'll usually make something up so they can keep soothing their fragile ego's.

For me, out of 40 systems & handhelds(so far), I favor all my Playstation systems/handhelds just because they've always given me the most diverse gaming pleasures overall.

And if I had to pick my next few favorite consoles, then I'd have to go with my Dreamcast next, then my Double 180, then my Intellivision, & after that my Panasonic FZ10 3DO(600 levels of Icebreaker FTW).

not one trick ponies, its not like bf3 has one gun that makes it good and mw3 has one set piece that makes it exciting. theyre just pretty much either side of a very abundant coin.

i have a 360 – but i only use it for Gears and Halo – xbox live cod is riddled with really really annoying kids and teenagers – so just about all my buddies play cod on the ps3 . As for battlefield – dice are pc masters – battlefield 3 looks far superior on the pc and thats the platform ill be buying bf3 on.

360 for exclusives, PS3 for everything else. I didn't even realize I was doing that at first.
Until one day a buddy wanted to borrow a game. He got in my video cabinet, that has almost no videos in it, and asked me why I had 2 1/2 rows of PlayStation games. And less than half a row of 360.
I think it's what someone else already said. Community.
I play both the Battlefield and COD games. I like both of them.
I have them both preordered for PS3. Why PS3?
Community. I have the first Bad Company for 360, BC2 for PS3. I played BC1 multiplayer for a month or so. BC2, I still play it online.
Microsoft makes a big deal that every 360 comes with a headset.
And now I think that's the issue. Everyone on 360 has a mic. Only the people who want to talk on PlayStation, have one.
Just me, I don't think so.
Play the same game on 360 and PS3, with a headset, and tell me what you think.

I don't think it's a battle of the systems. A good game is a good game no matter which system you have. The two games are very different. If you like a fast paced, arcade style shooter get MW3; if you like more strategy and kick ass vehicles get BF3. There's room for both.

Duh! It's simple!

I find it just as fun to plays as BFBC2 so far though the graphics need to be redone or fixed before the retail release because they are seriously holding it back. Too bad DICE decided to keep things "fair" and hold the PS3 version back because the 360 can't hang.

Easy there world. BF3 beta has its bugs yes but don't forget that its just that, a beta. We don't know when it was built all we know is the beta itself has glitches. We still are unsure as to if this beta will leave an impression on the full title. Don't get too up in arms yet

I actually had a blast with it tonite. I finally got all the tools that I'm used to playing with so now u can b more of an effective player. It's great fun when u get used to the map and become comfortable with ur guns.

As someone who put alot of time in MAG, I am confident that the PS3 could run more players comparable to the PC. Jawknee is 100% correct.

I don't think it's obvious but I do think it's there. I see it more that EA prefers the ps3 while Activision prefers the 360. EA gives a lot of content to ps3 versions of games while Activision gets profits from Live.

not sure if activision 'prefer' xbox so much as are persuaded to 'prefer' by microsoft handing over large quantities of $$$$$$$$$$$$ for the preferential early dlc – i guess when you only have 2 franchises of note (gears and halo) this is what they gotta do to compete with the ps3

BIGRED15

I've come to find out that the nature of the BF3 v MW3 is very similar to the console war. When I'm not on here I sometimes check into AOTF to see some of their articles and the idiots that just talk smack about a game they haven't even played is insane. Not to mention most can't justify their reason for for thinking battlefield sucks. It's fairly easy to support an argument against MW3, but people just bicker back and forth without an explanation for their preference. It's just another fanboy war. So I guess you could say yea its a lot like ps3 v 360.

This also ties into bens other article. People say battlefield sucks only because they suck at it. Same with MW. ill b honest, I'm pretty bad at MW but the game doesn't help itself when glitches and cheaters run rampant. I would say yes cod is a solid game, but its just not for me.

To be fair though CoD games are much easier for noobs to pick up and play. BF on the other hand has a bit of a learning curve.

Totally. Like I said its much easier to argue against cod especially because of stuff like that.

hi guys I'm new to the site…. but have been a reader for over a year now… i have this to say, i have3 COD (WoW,B.OPS,MW2) and they all play the same, and my first encounter with battlefield started with BC1,then i got BC2, and now BF3 they all play very differently to each other unlike COD.

other thing about BF is that you do not have to kill to help your team win, all you need to do is what your kit is suppose to do or in other words you need to think a bit about how u go about in the game and COD players like rack up big kill streaks, THIS IS why COD PLAYERS (NOT FANS) do not like BF. about it being a ps3 vs xbox, i think it is only EA don't wants it to look like they are supporting the same console to passionately as their competition.

I own both ps3 and 360 because im a gamer. Fanboys are for the most part ignorant. But theres nothing wrong with having a preference. I value my ps3 more than my 360 but i like to play good games and have my cake and eat it too. Regarding the BF3 beta i played it extensively on both consoles and there ISN'T a visual difference graphically. Both are scaled down PC ports and both have lots of noticeable bugs and glitches. The most important question to ask is Are ps3 and 360 gamers are going to get the next gen battlefield EA has hyped up and promised. Cuz im not impressed. Just like MW3, BF3 is SSDD or SameShitDifferentDay.

Nope not at all Ben, too big of a judgement I say; I have friends who are big COD Fans, but BIGGER Battlefield fans (since Battlefield 1942 and earlier I believe). Best of both worlds to them.

I don't see that. I'm a Sony fan and I pick BF3 due to it's superior multiplayer. I just dislike all the perks in COD. However I must admit, I expected more from the BETA. The graphics were okay. It didn't show any vehicles or destructible enviroments. The BETA for BF2 had me sold but this one just didn't do the same for me. I might pass on both and pick up Resistence 3.

no, i don't think this turning into a ps3 vs 360 debate. the betas on both versions are equally bad so i don't buy this claim that bf3 will be better on the ps3. there is nothing about the ps3 version that is superior.

to be honest i am sick of all this bf3 hype. after seeing the beta it is clear this game was seriously overhyped. what we have here is an overhyped average looking fps.

bf3 is taking an absolute pounding out there on the internet now becuase of quality of the beta so it looks like ea/dice have fallen victim to their own hype. ea deserves every bit of backlash they are getting now considering all the chest thumping and boasting they have doing.

I wouldn't worry too much. Looking back at the gameplay footage they showed on Jimmy Fallon's show, I think the final version will turn out much better. Plus I think the beta looks that way because well…it's a beta. In order to keep the download size down they had to compress a lot of the textures. If anything though DICE should explain why it looks the way it does just to reasure people. I still think I'm going to get it if only for the campaign. Battlefield is fun unlike a lot of other military shooters.
