Release Excitement: COD MW3, Battlefield 3, Killzone 3?

By Posted 9 Feb 2011, 07:23

This year is going to be one to remember for FPS fans, as three of the biggest franchises are set to grace home consoles with the possible arrival of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, and Killzone 3 all in the same year.

We all know that Killzone 3 is imminent on the PS3 this month, and EA will be unveiling Battlefield 3 and it’s brand new engine at the next big gaming event – GDC 2011 in San Francisco on February 28th.

As for Modern Warfare 3, details are very scarce at the moment, but the latest is that Sledgehammer Gamers will be co-developing the game along with franchise veterans Infinity Ward.

If you had to choose between the three games, which one are you most looking forward to? We can guess that most of you are not going to say Killzone 3, as the old age battle between Call of Duty and Battlefield remains as tasty as ever.

We recently saw some fantastic in-game screenshots for Battlefield 3, so all eyes are on Activision to see if they can top the immensely popular MW2. If both BF3 and MW3 release towards the end of the year, gamers are once again going to have to make a decision on which game will take priority, exactly like what happened for MW2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

    I think that CoD is a more popular franchise than Killzone and Battlefield. Im not trying to say CoD is better than the other two, but that it has more games because it has always been a fan favorite. In my mind they all are good. Hope I helped out ;)

      ur right that cod is more popular but i find too many kids play it and its very predictable. also the kill streaks dont reflect ur skills as a player e.g you could be havin a blinding round then ur dead by a predator missile ( whats that all about lol). where as battlefield bc2 any 1 round is never the same due to the enviroment around you constantly changing and in my many hours play have been lucky not to come across to many kids. im not knocking mw3 as i will get it as i did mw2 i just think that the BF series is far superior.

      I agree COD is King. the Graphics the gane speed. the ranking system .Modern Warfare's the best. The modernday weapons the Maps and kill streaks or creative. The black ops version was cool, but peolpe wasn't really bored with the game. I think gamers were bored with the weapons and the timeline of the game. Killzone 3 I just purchased its sweet better than than KZ2 I hated the weight on the controls and I also owned Killzone for the PS3. Battlefield 2 was so, so. But You guys have to pay hamidge to the forgotten king of military shooters socom4 is dropping soon. If you are over 20 years old and dont' know how Socom 2 and Socom 3 Pioneened online Military games. I have KZ3 , Getting MV3 when it drops and definitely getting Socom4. Don't know about Battlefied 3 or Homefront. I stick with what I know and Like.

    would rather play battlefield 3 over cod but definately pumped on killzone.

  • Luke

    cod is garbage but im kinda glad that it is such a big game. its like a magnet, if your stupid enough to get caught up in the cod hype, i dont want you playing my game anyways. Im excited for battlefield 3, ive had enough 10yr olds singing eminem through my mics. I wanna play with people who have gone through puberty =)

    • Luke is Retarded

      Your retarded because your stupided enough to waste money on a game nobody even plays in the first place, and second," i dont want you playing my game anyways," so you make games?!?! (retard)

      • Luke

        ummm… your retarded. Like I said, I dont want to have an online experience with people like YOU. YOU are the reason i hate Call of Duty (that and its bland multiplayer, outdated engine, glitchy and laggy gameplay that requires less skill than a game of heads or tails). Also, your "you make games" comment was not nearly as hilarious as you thought it was, just sayin.

    People comlpain about kids playing a computer game, WTF…
    And as for them talking, there are several things you can do.
    Get xbox and start a party with friends.
    Mute them.
    OR JUST TURN YOUR GOD DAMN MIC OFF!!!
    Stop complaining and start killing them,
    If You Can That Is.
    I cant wait for BF3, but I'm craving MW3.
    Also I just got the mile high club achievement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    COD is the most predictable linear crap i've ever had the misfortune to play. I havent played battlefield since Vietnam a good few years back – And that was awesome!
    KillZone is my game, it absolutely destroys cod in every possible way – The online rankign system is creative and unrivalled and the way you have to work as a team when playing online is simply fantastic.
    COD is a big hyped up joke in my opinion.

    • Luke

      never played kz. I'd give it a shot but i have 360 =(. oh well, ig ill try it at a friends house.

  • Jose
