TC’s Massive Poll: Battlefield 3 vs Modern Warfare 3

Alternate Universe Introduction

You eyes slowly flicker open, you have no idea how long you have been unconscious or where you are. The last thing you can remember was the battle, there must have been sixteen of your squad fighting against the insurgents but somehow one of the enemy had mange to creep up behind you. A flash of pain as a rifle butt slammed in to your skull is the last thing you can recall.

You are sat on a wooden chair that creaks noisily as you struggle but despite your attempts you cannot move, your arms are tied firmly behind back. You are a prisoner.

The light from a dying fire helps your eyes adjust to the gloom and you can just make out the walls of a cave, and in one corner a computer screen.

As the screensaver flicks through pictures of Tom Hardy you begin to notice other details. A flag with a mysterious symbol hangs from a wall, it is white and blue and the symbol looks similar to an asterisk. Various weapons are stacked in the corner of the room; sadly they are all out of reach.

Suddenly a curtain on the far wall is flung open and a tall, gruff looking man walks in. It is the leader of the insurgents, a fearsome Russian known throughout the world as Peter the Awesome. His two henchmen, Aleks and Kristoff follow him in to the cave.

Aleks begins to speak. “You dirty pig-dog! You are our prisoner now, there is no escape from clutches of TSA! Do you know where you are?”

Kristoff chuckles quietly and leans towards you, “You are in Tuffcub’s cave at the back of the TSA office!”

“You must choose. If you do not choose then we shall unleash the Cub. Choose carefully for the fate of millions rests in your hands,” shouts Peter.

Both Aleks and Kristoff laugh. It is an evil laugh, a laugh that strikes terror in your heart.

“Choose now,” commands Peter, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3. Which will you be buying?”

Real Universe Introduction

Hello everyone, I thought I would resurrect my Massive Poll to see if we can predict which will sell more, Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3.

Please cast your vote above, the poll closes at midnight on Sunday and the results will be published next week. Get voting!



  1. Still getting mileage out of BFBC2 long after I’ve given up on COD so BF3 all the way. Saying that, if the supermarkets do a £25 deal again, I’ll probably pick up MW as well, knowing I’ll be able to trade it in later and probably make a profit

  2. no comment from me other than I will be purchasing BF3. I’ve recently got back onto BFBC2 after a long time away and absolutely loving it again.

  3. I worry about you guys sometimes…

  4. That story was hilarious. Anyway i’m buying both as they are both different enough to interest and only purchasing them will let me decide which is best.

  5. Maybe I’m just childish but I found that headline really funny.

    On the game front I won’t be getting either. With the games coming out in Q4 I have no need to go near any FPS, if I do it will be Resistance purely because I want to see where Insomnica are taking the story.

  6. Crap – no “will get MW3 for free, will buy BF3” option.

  7. Probably neither although the tank mission in B3 looks cool but i’ve yet to see that running on PS3.

    • Yes, they will probably cut that out of the PS3 version for lack of disc space.

      • and then somehow get it into the 360 even though the disks are less then half the size

      • Nope don’t believe so. The devs made a comment about how the PS3 version and PC are not that different- besides the graphics capabilities and bandwidth for multiplayer. So I assume content will be unchanged. I’ll try and find the source.

      • This was what I seen.

      • I tried to be funny but it did’nt work out.

      • I wasn’t being serious either.

  8. i hit it with my axe.

  9. Both. Will like BF3 better though. Just saying. :P

  10. I’ll be getting both myself. I’d imagine most of my mates will probably only get MW3.
