Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello is positively fired up about the upcoming video game battle between EA's Battlefield 3 and Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. In an interview with CNBC, Riccitiello likened the release of both games at the same time as a "Clash of the Titans."
In spite of Modern Warfare 3's advantage in name-recognition compared to the Battlefield series, Riccitielloi is confident that Battlefield 3 will emerge victorious because it is "a better game."
"The simple reality is, they're working on a game engine that's multiple years old, and they've been adding to it and adding to it and adding to it," Riccitiello said. "We've invested the last four years of our time, energy and capital resources to build something brand new from the ground up that's frankly superior. Whether its looking at the animations, the gameplay, the scale of the world, it's a better product. I'm really looking forward to the competition."
