Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling stated in an interview that not only is he unconcerned about Electronic Art's constant obsession and veiled put-downs of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but he'll be picking up a copy of Battlefield 3 because players can enjoy both games when they're released later this year.
"I'm very aware that we have two very different audiences and we're delivering two very good and very different experiences, so I think the baiting is built up more of these two really passionate communities – and they should be really passionate about their individual games – getting at each other, and that's been happening forever," Bowling told .
When asked if he would be picking up Battlefield 3 for himself, he said without reservation, "I am", then stated there was plenty of room for both games. "I think that would be a misconception," Bowling explained. "I think there is definitely room. If you are a shooter fan, you should be getting both, because they're both going to be excellent experiences.
"But more importantly they're going to be very different experiences. The kind of gameplay you get from Call of Duty is very different from what you get anywhere else and I think that's important. I think any shooter fan would be extremely disappointed if you only got one."
Let us know if you'll be buying both games, or just sticking with one or the other.
