This is nothing like Battlefield 3

If you’ve been around for the last year you’ll remember the ding dong (love that phrase) battle that occurred online between Activision and EA Games last year.

From my side I mainly remember EA Games constantly harassing Activision about Modern Warfare 3 while trying to pass off Battlefield 3 as a brand new game.

In the end both games were released to critical acclaim however Modern Warfare 3 pretty much trounced Battlefield 3 in the sales charts.

And MW3 would have beaten BF3 in the critics scores if it wasn’t for a few oddly negative PC reviews on it’s title, in the end however they were virtually a dead match with BF3 taking the title by a single point in the end.

So it’s not surprising that EA would once again open up the battle lines with a sarcastic twitter comment by their Global Product Manager shortly after the official reveal who stated

Poor #blackops2 you look tired, you should take a year off and rest

Personally I find it distasteful and childish but hey let the games begin, I wonder if Activision will get sucked into it and give EA’s Warfighter some much needed publicity?

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer
