Fixed (I think ).

The difference, even with any mistakes, is minimal. Hardly a massive gap. Then throw in the free to play, with micro transactions, Battlefield Heroes aswell and (oh wait isn't there another free to play Battlefield game aswell?).

Anyone who argues different developers can throw half the COD games off the list. As stated already Infinity Ward aren't the only company to develop COD games.

Honestly, any BF fanboy who thinks Battlefield isn't a cash cow is just as blind as the COD fanboys who seem to think the same about COD, or Halo fanboys who think the same about Halo.

The releases are fairly close, but I think just seems like there is a lot more CoD than BF up to this point. Especially if you only have a PC to play on. PC went from 2006 to 2010 without a new BF game, but still had CoD almost every year during that time. After BF3, there will probably be another 2-3 CoD games released before another new BF is out. And CoD has more releases even though they started a year after the first BF game.

I like playing both games, just depends on what kind of mood I'm in when I play. I have been skipping about every other CoD though just so I don't get too much of it.

They both milk what they can out of them, but the difference is....one actually advances and the other just stays the same.

Edit: And I believe that CoD 3 was not released on PC, so that one could be removed from the list of PC releases.
