    Doesn't take that long going through a web browser on BF3 either though. I would much prefer to launch BF3 then get the server list so I could join the game quicker. To get in a good server it can fill up before it has chance to launch.

    Agree!

    Dedicated servers > Peer to peer pants.

    MW3 Sales = £647m (Globally)
    MW3 Refunds/Trade ins = £511m (Globally)
    BF3 Sales = £188m (Globally)
    BF3 Refunds/Trade ins = £16m (Globally)

    Pretty much says it all really!!

    Charisma indeed...

    Anyway, I don't think anybody is arguing are they? Most people agree MW3 is rubbish!

    It will never end lol I wont deny I am annoyed with the lack of effort they put into freshening the game up but saying that I like the gameplay so will still play it. Now if they try and get away with the same thing with the next game I will abandon!

    I had to on my PC and it was to frustrating, waiting to find a game for longer than some lasted is unacceptable. Getting rid of dedicated servers is what stopped me playing it. I like being able to browse the servers to find the game type, map ping etc.. and just click join and be done with it. I understand p2p is an adequate system on the consoles but not a PC. I know MW3 now has dedicated servers but they are unranked and have to use default classes from what I gather which is really rather pointless.

    They've been the same pretty much since MW1...WAW, all they did was reskin a few maps, slightly update COD3 skins and that was that. Black Ops was the only one where they made an effort because they had to redesign a fair few weapons. However they have all felt very samey though so I give up! lol

    Yeah agreed its all opinions, it goes back to the whole BF vs MW rubbish, frankly I consider BF3 a complete rip off MW2/Black Ops just with a tank and a plane. Both games were given far too much hype, MW3 does feel like MW2 but frankly so does BF3.

    I was disappointed in both games hugely and the only moments I can recall I really enjoyed was the story of MW and BF3 Plane and parachute jump scene.

    As for sales/refunds figures again I still can not see a single site showing refund figures yet some have mentioned gamers are not happy with both games and more MW3 (mainly for the short single player on MW3 and BF3 ripping off MW with story and game settings).

    Call of Duty: MW3 sales top $775 million in five days - News at GameSpot

    See how easy it is to put a website? by using google?

    As for the refunds again I did a quick google and couldnt see anything so till i see official stats its just rumour just like the moon being made out of cheese (sorry for the spoiler guys).

    Wouldnt class either game as rubbish just both over rated and felt like MW3=MW2 Expansion pack and BF3= Modern Warfare: BattleField Ops

    I really can't see what BF3 has in common with Black Ops, other than it being a war game. Granted the campaign story is similar in that it's a series of events being retold in an interrogation, I'll give you that. But let's face it, it's the multiplayer we're all really interested in and I don't think the games are at all alike (other than the obvious both being FPS war games)

    Agreed, would be great to hear in what way the game is the same with some tanks added?
