CoD has consistently made good upgrades on all of their games... they have fast-paced action and literally all of my friend, classmates, and co-workers play CoD. It is the best social game on both PSN and Xbox Live.
BF3 is just a terrible social game. It has no splitscreen options, so no local mulitplayer matches with friends. It has no splitscreen online, which is one of the best features on Black Ops, and barely any people use the online chat features on BF3.
EA is no better than Activision so the only people complaining about Activision are those that try to attract attention by not liking the most popular thing out there. They would hate on BF3 if it was the most popular FPS series too.
So this is a great price for CoD and all the BF trolls should get the hell out of here.
I agree with a lot of this. I don't know what they were thinking in BFBC2, making it possible to only communicate verbally with the four members of your squad, and not the other people on your team, lol. Maps so large that if you're playing with idiots who get all your team's vehicles blown up you have to run all the way across the map and steal some (unless you get sniped first).
That said, Battlefield won't be a bore-fest, you just gotta be in a certain mood to play it. You gotta have/find a squad with mics and common sense. You gotta be patient. I love both Black Ops and BFBC2, but I have a solid job, a pregnant wife, and classes; there are times when I turn on my Xbox and I want some instant gratification due to a lack of gaming time. CoD provides that, and I always have half my friends list playing it. I just hope that the "Survival Mode" they are adding to MW3 is a lot of fun, its nice to play a game mode with buddies that doesn't track so many stats.
