Last night I played some MW2 for the 1st time in months (reaffirming everything I dislike about CoD and why I prefer BF) and there was an interesting conversation about MW3 with 2 of my hardcore MW playing friends.
Guy 1 "So, MW3 is coming out in November"
Guy 2 "Yeah, but I'm not sure about it, I mean it's not really 'Infinity Ward' who are doing it is it?"
Guy 1 (who has never played a BF game ever) "no, I think they've effectively been disbanded, they've got whawt's left of Infinity Ward and some other guys working on it, I'm thinking maybe Battlefield 3 is the way to go"
Guy 2 (does play BC2) "Definitely getting BF3, MW3, I'll have to wait and see"
Anecdotal for sure, but how many others are having similar conversations?
As for me, I will defo be getting BF3, but I'm not buying multiplayer centric fps games that are p2p anymore, so if MW3 is p2p again, it can get fucked.
