Launch trailer shoot-out: BF3 vs MW3

I am aware that it’s “the year of the first-person shooter” just about every year, but with the impending release of both Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 in the coming weeks, the label is particularly appropriate for 2011.

As the launch of both games draws ever-closer, we’ve been handed new trailers for both these AAA titles, so you can watch them together. Even if you’re not in a position just yet to directly compare the gameplay, the first bite is with the eye (as with food), so it’s interesting to see the different approaches taken to presentation with these two. (Incidentally, we do have hands-on previews with both games: BF3 multiplayer, BF3 single-player, Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer.)

In alphabetical order, I give you the launch trailer for Battlefield 3, from EA and DICE.

…and the other big hitter: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, sent over from Activision and Infinity Ward.

Have you made your mind up, yet? Which one are you lining up for? Who’s got your pre-order? …both? I like your style.
