    There’s a great new single player trailer just out for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It continues the story from the previous game and looks excellent, as you might expect. However, since it’s coming out at the same time as Battlefield 3, one can’t help compare the graphics quality between the two. MW3 seems to look like an evolutionary improvement, but still looks like "computer generated graphics", while BF3 appears to define a whole new level of realism which isn’t that hard to mistake for the real thing if it's not looked at closely. Go watch it over at Guru3D at 720p and decide for yourselves. Note that watching the video directly on YouTube requires a free account registration due to the strong nature of the content, but not on Guru3D.

    Ugh... No comment. :shadedshu I don't know why we are using other forums for news either. I don't care for it.

    I don't think so, BF3 looks good but not amazing, while MW3 looks like what it is . .. a console port.

    Here's my 2 cents - as long is its crapton of fun i barely care about the graphics. the graphics of this game may not look like the latest DX11 titles but its ok. I could run this game on my laptop and play it on just about any modern computer i can find.

    This game trailer has COD4, WOW, MW2, BO all rolled into one with more over the top stupid crap. I hope BF3 crushes COD this time but knowing all the kiddies out in the world they will buy this thinking its the best game ever!

    I just love it when people treat the COD series like its only meant to be played by little kids.

    Forum? You got me there. :confused: It's just another article and I would have linked directly to YouTube had the video not sat behind a login.

    If I could relocate the website that did a study about it, it shows that 75% of people playing COD games lately have been 16Yr and younger.

    I just don't think that this game is worthy of news reporting and/or TPU's front page for advertisement. Not my call though, just disppointed is all.

    I could relocate a study that shows that i don't give a rat's ass about how old are the players as long as i know IM having fun playing it. when you were young and you wanted to play DOOM, who stopped you from doing it?

    I predict a really long fight in this threads future and i'd be surprised if it doesn't come true.

    And no, it doesn't look close to BF3 visually, they've been using the same game engine for a while now.

    Well I will buy this one the same as I have for every other one since CoD 2. for the SP. Tho this time at least I will buy it at a discount. I never bought a single CoD for the MP just the great cinematic SP's

    I was old enough to play DOOM. My brother was not. My parents didn't allow him to play it and gave him other activities to do.

    all these games are stupid if you think it. or fun, if you like it. no point in segregating BF or MOH or COD or Pink Panter gamers...

    Regarding the BF3 vs MW3, the only thing a consumer needs to know that decide which game is better...

    BF3 = Revolutionized new graphics for FPS, yet will still tremble against MW3 multiplayer. (However, the jet-play is epic!)

    MW3 = Improved graphics and visuals yet not that of BF3. Will probably have a better story than BF3.

    So, it's going to come down to how well BF3s story is written and it will come down to how well MW3 multiplayer will be (new features-wise).

    For me personally, I already have BF3 and will pick up MW3 because both games are amazing.
