This is going to go on for eternity, or until one franchise completely obliterates the other and the losing publisher goes off to skulk in the shadows somewhere. Until that time, however, we can amuse ourselves with the hype-inducing slander speech flung about by each franchise’s development teams.
EA has not been shy in labelling Battlefield 3 as a Call of Duty killer. It just might be! It looks pretty as hell and is poised to launch during a period when COD fatigue is on the up and up. Still, that’s not stopping Activision and the teams (there are four separate dev teams working on Modern Warfare 3 at the moment) from dishing out what they’ve received.
What Battlefield 3 weakness have they zoned in on? The inexcusable fact that the console versions of EA’s upcoming FPS only run at 30 frames per second at 720p. Scandalous!
