MW3 is designed with consoles in mind. I never understood why people always want to compare the two franchises, not only do they cater to very different styles of gameplay, they aren't even based on the same fundamental design principles.
All of my XBL friends enjoy MW3 much more than BF3, and from the sounds of it BF3, isn't nearly as polished on 360 as it is on PC. Similarly, I saw MW3 on 360 this weekend (brother brought it home), and it seems smoother and more polished than on PC.
As long as you're having fun, it doesn't matter which franchise you choose.
Not trying to compare the two so much, I just prefer the faster style action that MW3 provides. BF3 does have the better graphics and sound (if you were to compare those features) but as far as gameplay, game style and just overall fun factor, I prefer MW3. Even if I had both on PC, I would still play MW3 more than BF3 simply because of the fast gameplay, game style and fun factor. BF3 tends to be more of a "take your time" kind of game IMO and I don't have a ton of time to play video games like I used to; I feel like I can get a lot more done in MW3 than BF3.
I was actually talking to some people in line this weekend and I did meet a guy who all of his buddies play BF3 instead of MW3 on the XBOX. I said "Hey, if you like BF3 better, than by all means go for it!" I'm all about having fun, not worrying about graphics and blah blah.
I'm just glad I got my money back for BF3, I was a little worried about buying it in the first place but I wanted to give it an honest shot before ditching it. Not trying to troll on this comment, but if I bought a PC copy, I would've been stuck with it. Jussayin.
