    Been waiting months to see G4 represent this match up, very disappointed it lacked any insight beyond Activision forum articles. Xplay looked at it from a purely console perspective.
    Huge EPIC conquest Maps whether 32 or 64 are going to be amazing, the most realistic shooter ever made.
    I got to play Caspian Border a little in beta and it was amazing, BF3 hands down beats MW3 this go around. Not only is the ground combat flawless but you basically have simulators for every bad ass military vehicle in the air or on the land.

    Definetly BF3, but I'll get MW3 to see how the story will turn out along with co-op.

    I am getting BF3 on release. Always a huge BF fan. Some of the best FPS games ever imo. Especially the multiplayer. CoD:MW3 looks like it's going to pull itself together finally since CoD4 was the last good one. Prior to that it was CoD2 for PC only.(CoD:UO is still the best). Seriously awesome gaming lineup this year.

    When i roll the DICE i always win.(pun intended) i like both game franchises but nothing has been game changing like COD4 was. before came out i play BF2 alot and when i got COD4 it was fun and faster than BF2 since i wasnt good with air vehicles.

    Buying BF3x2 (xbox and PC) and rent MW3 for story and later buy used if MP is fun a balanced.

    I've had more fun playing Battlefield solo and with friends on online multiplayer, so it's pretty obvious what my choice is here.

    This is too obvious. The first modern warfare was fun, then it really wen't downhill. I'm a battlefield junkie, and its definitely the better game. I'll be buying BF3, and avoiding MW3.

    Both are going to be good, though I'm swaying more to Dice's side on this one... Jumping over the fence multiple times may just get me impales..
