    i'll take BF3 thx.
    Don't like all these "DLC's" these days & how the price of them rarely drops.
    Go ahead, keep filling their pockets, fools like you are the reason we get 1/2 azz'd games with DLC as filler.

    These are two completely different types of games. And they are both great. I'm buying both as I am sure most shooter fans will be.

    Battlefield is more my type of game, but I have a lot of fun on COD also. It just depends on what I'm in the mood for.

    mw3: Game itself=$60, MW3 Elite=$60, Map Expansions $120+, anything else?
    BF3: 60$ and you are all done; free expansions, upgrades, browser, and much more to offer.

    From what I've seen, BF3 looks alittle better. I will buy both though, because I'm a fan.

    OK within the past couple years DICE had BAD COMPANY which was horrible then Bad Company 2 which i actually really really enjoyed then Medal Of Honor which was horrible (by the way was last years COD killer) now sells for 10 bucks what happened to the Battlefield Fans Supporting these titles why not talk crap using them as forefront cause it cant be done .. BF3 is next in line to beat the champ and i guess we got to wait to see the real deal put your money where your mouth is and thats it .. nothing of recent has beat COD and until it happens people are just talking crap

    Here is the scoop:

    BF3 = BUGS, glitches, and new engine.

    MW3 = same old, same old.

    Both are FPS, some are a bit more team based than others... but you get an all clan with ventrilo team... it be hard to be them in COD too. In the end, do you like oranges or apples?

    Oh another thing id like to point out...All you BF fans who complain about CoD being the same thing everytime...Could have sworn I was playing the bad company 2 beta + graphics yesterday...Same sounds and gameplay. But go ahead and deny that.

    for me, i am getting both.

    when i want a more team/objective oriented gameplay, i will indulge BF3.

    when i am in a more arcade/individual effort mood, i will play MW3.

    MW3 will win over BF3, because the gameplay suits the casual gamer more.

    i will pwn on both games.

    @Blair Herter:

    I've said it before, I'll say it again; the proper term you're looking for is *SURVIVAL* Mode.
    (Which has existed LONG before "Horde" mode, in Arcade Fighting games & such)

    Sorry DICE you've let me down before. So I'm going with Modern Warfare 3 on this one.

    I wish G4 would actually take a side or explain the differences (pros/cons) in videos/articles where they 'pit' MW3 against BF3.

    I've got a 360 and all the guys I play games with (especially CoD) have all said they are staying CoD. So I'm going to get CoD as well but I'm also getting BF3.

    I've been playing the BF3 Beta and I really really like what I see. I like the realism and the 'team work' aspect of it and I also love the destruction (which I'm told will be ten fold on the final build of the game).

    I am very excited for BF3 and less excited for MW3.

    im going to make this simple to the ignorant gamers out there... stop wasting your time filling up the game forums on: which game is better BF3, or MW3?. PICK THE APPLE YOU LIKE TO EAT AND GO HOME. OR PICK BOTH IF YOU LIKE both.. you gamers make me sick when you take a simple choice and convolute it into a massive bash fest... grow up you darn gamers try it some time because i had enough of crap like this.

    Here's the real truth!

    If your a real gamer, I suggest you buy them both. Both games WILL be good.

    MW3 is for a fast-paced gamers who like to run and gun.

    BF3 is for the gamer who likes to take awhile to play a game and doesn't really care about their kill count. BF3 is slower paced, and more strategy based.

    The BF3 Beta was a terrible selling point; It's so incredibly buggy. For something to help someone SELL more games, they did not do it right.

    MW3 will be the same as MW2. With the addition of new guns, perks, etc. So by if you LIKED MW, MW2. You will more than likely enjoy MW3.

    If your a real gamer, buy both games don't worry about what will be the BEST because there both great. They both have there perks, just switch to the other when your board.

    -_- you just looooooove controversy, dont you g4.... me too. i think that battlefield will be the better game. i loved cod4, mw2 was cool until people started using the stupid quickscoping and stopped actually trying to win matches so they could focus on k/d ratio. The beta for bf is really glitchy but i dont think any company would actually allow a release while it was that bad. Not sure if i like all the changes on bf from bad company(yes, i know its supposed to be a sequel to the older bf games).

    Y make it complicated? Want a game that rewards u for campin? That helps u get kills? That even lil kids can pick up n play? A real user frendly casual gamer type shooter? Then pick up MODERN WARFARE 3!!!
    Want a challenging, team based, get ur own kill n feel good u did coz u cant jus pick up n play kinda shooter? Get BATTLEFIELD 3!
    You can be jus like me and afford BOTH GAMES and can actually PWN on BOTH GAMES. I understand the frustration.. Some people cant b like me n forever be ONE TRICK PONIES. =D

    Some people drink Coke, some drink Pepsi, and some skip soda all together. They will coexist. There is no vs or war both sides will win.
