Battlefield 3


 

THE BUZZ: Proving that the war between Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warefare 3 and EA’s Battlefield 3 continues to rage, video game-focused social networking service Raptr has released some interesting stats about how the two games are being received by fans.

In terms of playtime, Modern Warfare 3 has come out on top so far. On their respective launch days, Xbox 360 owners spent 40% more time with MW3 (6.19 hours average) versus Battlefield 3 (4.45 hours average), and during their first weeks, MW3 (20.45 hours average) was still ahead of Battlefield 3 (17.37 hours average) by 17%.

As a result of that, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has accumulated more total playtime in its first week than Battlefield 3 did in its first three weeks.

However, all is not lost for Battlefield 3 fans. In Raptr’s opinion data, 81% of respondents had been more excited about the launch of Battlefield 3 than the launch of Modern Warfare 3, 92% considered DICE to be more innovative than Infinity Ward, and 58% thought Battlefield 3 had a bigger impact on the FPS genre than Modern Warfare 3 did.

EGM’s TAKE: Really, at the end of the day, what’s important is this—if you enjoy a game, that’s all that matters. No matter if you’re a Modern Warfare 3 fan, or if you’re a Battlefield 3 fan, or even if you’re a fan of both, if the games are giving you a fun, exciting, satisfying experience, then that’s what playing video games is all about.

No matter what games, consoles, handhelds, or genres you love, we all want the same thing—good games.
