Yeah, yeah. modernwarfare3.com currently redirects to the BF3 site. MW3.com got hacked.

Man, those guys are so funny! Haha!

Not really, no. It's like watching some old warrior who knows this is going to be his last mission, and that he is in fact going to die, but instead of going out like a man, he acts like a pussy ass bitch.

Problem ain't DICE's game, it's EA's marketing that's to blame.
 
I get the strange feeling that all this is gonna end up biting EA in the ass big time down the line.

It only takes a couple of games to get people to realize Battlefield is a better game. The trick is getting them to try it.

Any actual evidence showing that EA is responsible?

@L33tfella_H: Exactly. DICE is doing fine. The problem is EA.

Does BF3 have FFA?

No and, from the site's cache, it seems they got hacked.

You should probably check out the cached version, which says this: Modern Warfare 3 .com is a 100% unofficial fan site dedicated to the Modern Warfare series. IF you haven't figured it out yet, this site is a parody of Modern Warfare 3. Call of Duty official site.

Kinda weird though.

@extremeradical: Thanks for the clarification. I had thought they got hacked, but it's strange to think that Activision doesn't own modernwarfare3.com

It's not strange if it was registered in 09.

What's weird is that someone would use it as a joke instead of selling it to Activision for a bajillion dollars.

Don't get me wrong, Battlefield beats the shit out of Call of Duty, but I'd make a quick dollar off that domain.

I meant strange in that I would think, before knowing all of this, that Activision would own the website and not random people. But yeah, I guess they could sell it for some cash.

MW3 is so confident that they will outsell bf like usual, that they are now advertising for them just so they can have some competition!! lol.

Why does everybody just assume that EA did this?

Except this game will do really well, and is going to be a hell of a lot better than MW3 unless infinity ward turns shit way around from where it was at E3. Everyone ripped MW3 apart from what they saw, at least whenever I read anything.

That was......funny. Okay.

That's so good! TBH I hope they keep it forever.

#21 Posted by Siphillis (1296 posts) -

Sooner or later, EA, Activision, and the rest of the world are going to realize that Call of Duty and Battlefield aren't very similar, as far as shooters go.

This.
 
 
Kinda a weird thing to assume.

Why wouldn't they be able to hold that? Anyway that's great.

#24 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

Uhh. You guys realize that EA wouldn't have done this right? That's the most retarded thing you could have thought up. Not to mention the legal issues of getting caught.
