I overheard a convo in the bathroom today between a few guys (these are all air force/army guys) one of them asking the other 2 if they'd picked up BF3 yet, him saying he was going to best buy at lunch to get it.

The other 2 were pretty much like "meh nah I'm waiting for MW3 as are all my buddies"

the other guy pretty much echoed that he was also going to just wait for MW3 and that all the guys deployed are telling people back over here to send copies of MW3 over to the desert when it comes out and that pretty much no one is expressing much interest in BF3.

I don't know if it's simply a matter of no one knowing what it is or what?? Maybe just the "MW2 was awesome so MW3 will be awesome" mentality.

Just from that conversation alone, it seems as though this is going to play out just like we assumed it would for the console players. It's going to take either word of mouth or actually seeing/sitting down an playing BF3 before people see that there are better alternatives to modern warfare out there.

Don't eavesdrop on bathroom conversations, even if they are discussing who would win in a fight between nate and bigman

TBH if i was a dedicated console player i would also go with MW3 over BF3 simply because i would be at ease knowing that MW3 was created for my platform of choice and that BF3 was cut down from the superior PC version...In fact, like i have read numerous times over the internet, BF3 would be my main reason to switching to a PC from console.....

Regardless of platform, I like CoD over BF simply because I don't have a ton of time to dedicate to a game in one sitting like I used to. This is just my opinion, but I think it takes longer to accomplish anything in BF in just 10-20 minutes. This goes to the obvious statement of "Well BF has larger maps and vehicles!" and "If you have a decent squad, you can spawn on them!". Notice that's if you have a decent squad lol. In the same amount of time I could probably get 2-3 rounds of CoD in; just seems easier to jump in and out of a game. But again, just my opinion.

I will own both games soon enough for 360, but if history repeats itself (thinking of when I bought MW2 and BC2 at the same time), I will be putting in a lot more time in CoD than BF.

most of my console player mates are all keen on COD and less interested in BF3. I too showed them the caspian border trailer and they lost their minds. That picked up their interest in BF3 but they are all still guaranteed buys for COD. They all loved MW, MW2 and Black Ops, it's all they play. I think it's a case of they acknowledge that its just more of the same but that's what they want.

As MW3 grows closer I'm getting a little more excited about it... I was surprised when a few of the guys I work with were talking about how much they wanted BF3, but I asked if they bought it yet and they said they were just waiting for MW3 now. Guess having a "beta" map that is just a linear hallway isn't the best choice.
