Them's Fightin Words
Despite the outright sales of pretty much every Call of Duty title in recent years compared to any other title, EA isn't holding back on proclaiming that Battlefield 3 is "Flat out superior to Call of Duty".

Yes in a recent investors conference John Riccitiello said Battlefield 3 is ?superior? to Call Of Duty in every way and that EA aims to take a huge chunk of the Call of Duty market with Battlefield 3.

More specifically stating:
?We know we have a big competitor, but head-to-head with Call of Duty in Q3, we have the superior game engine, a superior development studio, and a flat out superior game. Our goal is to significantly gain share in the huge FPS category and to put the other team on defense.?

Definitely fightin words and I hope EA comes out on top in this fight, I'm getting pretty tired of Activision making so much off Call of Duty while putting in almost no effort and churning out a title once a year.

COD cant take risks and is constrained by having a yearly release. IMO Battlefield will be competing with Killzone 3 quality wise.

From everything ive seen of the new battlefield, I'd say they are right.

I still think people will buy COD more based off the name on the box alone though.

I have to agree with x_racer, they shouldn't be making so much money off of releasing the same game every year, I know I'm done with the Call of Duty series for good, unless they change it, which I know they won't.

I kinda hope that BF3 is a lot better than the new CoD game and outsells the new CoD, just so hopefully Activision sees that they got their asses kicked and make changes to the series

The thing is we KNOW for a fact Battlefield is going to be better. Bad Company 2 was better. killzone was better. Even Crysis 2 online was better.

The fact of the matter is COD is a casual game. It doesn't try to compete to be better. It simply puts arcade fundamentals and makes every player feel like they are good at the game. Even the worse players out there could manage to get a good K/D ratio and feel good about themselves.

Tag on the fact all the COD fanboys are brainwashed zombies and sales go through the roof.

EA we know your game is better, the problem is will it sell better. That is what we want to know. Almost every FPS coming out is better than COD but not a single one can touch the sales it has.

(If the next COD is made by IW and is a Modern Warfare, Im buying it. Otherwise im not bothering)

Dustin says EXACTLY why the CoD series is so popular, it's a casual series that you can pretty much just pick up and get a hang of quickly, that's why I play it.
even if IW makes a new Modern Warfare game, I dunno if I'll buy it still but it could be good, but I dunno if I wanna risk spending the money if it's anything like MW2.
I think most fanboys are brainwashed zombies though lol
