BF3 vs. MW3

Which of these should I pre-order? I've been playing COD for quite some time and want to stick with the series. But Battlefield looks pretty awesome. I don't know which to get. Post your opinions here

I'll be getting both. I'm only getting MW3 to continue the story & a bit of co-op though.

If i could only get one it'd 100% be BF3.

I'll be getting both, but if I had to pick one i'll take BF3. I expect to enjoy that more than MW3.

Pretty sure there's already a thread in the MW3 section and the BF3 section for this topic. Anyways, I'll be getting both but if I had to choose just one i'd but BF3 hands down.

I'm going to pre-order both, no reason not to as they will both be rather good games.
If I had to pick only one though I'd pick MW3, as online gaming has become more of a social experience for me as of lately, and Call of Duty has bigger parties whereas Battlefield has 4 max, or at least it did in BC2.

So MW3 is the better purchase for me due to this, and with Spec Ops survival just me and one other friend can play on our own and have fun, I know Battlefield 3 is getting it's own Co-Op mode but it looks a lot less fast paced and only has 10 or so maps I believe, which are the same everytime you play through it, and Spec Ops Survival has all the MP maps with random enemy waves coming at you, fighting to get to your highest round is something I enjoy doing aswell, so that might have also swayed my opinion on this.

Well if you can only afford one, then I guess I would say take COD, because COD games don't get cheaper. Black ops still costs alot. Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely standing behind BF3. But I believe it will get down in the price quicker than COD.

Both unless you have your mind set on getting one. If thats the case then buy COD new, since you def want to stick with the series, and buy BF3 a week or two after it comes out used from gamestop (if you are in the US, or ithe equivalent to gamestop wherever you live). If you dont like it then return it within the one week return policy. I do that all the time with games I am unsure of.

Both.

I love FPS games, love both franchises, so why not?

Impressed with the lack of fanboys in here, bashing the game they "don't like". Nice... for now anyway.

I have pre ordered Battlefield 3. Im huge battlefield fan.
I have also played every cod game to date but im getting Mw3 when its cheap. Only thing i find interesting in mw3 is story and spec ops. Lets face it...multiplayer in cod games has been same since Waw. no big updates only new guns and maps.

Battlefield 3

MW3 will probably end up like all other Call of Duty releases of the passed 5 years

I preordered MW3, not only because I love the series but ALL my good friends play it and thats a huge reason I'll be playing that for Multiplayer almost exclusivley. But I want to play BF3 too, but if anything i'll be too busy playing Gears 3 until MW3 actually comes out. More than likely I'll be really only getting into BF3 in 2012

Just going to interject here, the last 5 years have had, Black Ops, MW2, W@W and CoD4 released during, COD4 when released was a big step up for multiplayer gaming and is still the base for a lot of multiplayer games to this date.
So if MW3 ends up like COD4 I say let it, it'll be a lot of fun.

In my opinion BF3.

The new frostbite 2 engine looks epic and is a vast improvement over previous games.
Modern warfare on the other hand looks very similar to the previous modern warfare game.

Also the DLC for COD games is usually more expensive and they seem to care less about their game afterward... *looks at the state of COD 4*

It's all personal preference. I'm only getting Modern Warfare 3. I don't like Battlefield, never have.

I say Battlefield 3. Its going to be a sick game. Watch all the trailers for both. I think Battlefield clearly has a graphical advantage. You can fly fighter jets and helicopters, drive tanks, put holes in walls, destroy buildings... its too much fun IMO. And there's class customization and unlockables just like MW3.

Hands down BF3. The Call of Duty franchise will never get a dime from me after playing all of them up to MW2.... and that games online was terrible. I'll stick to open war combat like the other Battlefields and Bad Companies before it!

PS. Add me if your def not getting MW3 and getting this :P

Going with BF3. I have been getting into the BF series as of late so I'm excited. Probably will get MW3 eventually for Spec Ops mostly after this hellishly expensive Fall is over with

Only reason why I say both is because it's guaranteed that dice / ea will underwhelm battlefield 3 for the online side and it will lag like crazy like the previous battlefield games that have come out on the consoles

Don't get me wrong I love the battlefield brand .. It's just such a shame the multiplayer side of things is so underwhelmed ..

It's a guaranteed fact it'll happen, because it keeps happening

I'm still getting bf3 but I'm also getting mw3 in hopes it'll keep me busy until bf3's online will be fixed fast!

I think the Battlefield 3 will be leaps and bounds better than MF3.
