Error Dot Com

While the Call of Duty/Modern Warfare franchises have in recent years led the market in the military FPS genre, it looks like someone has pulled a classic bit of subterfuge. The ModernWarfare3.com domain name was registered in 2009; and when typed into you address bar it will lead you, surprisingly, to rival military shooter Battlefield 3‘s website. Whether this is the work of dedicated Battlefield fans or Electronic Arts themselves is unknown.

The Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3 conflict is set to be a big one. Will Battlefield be able to topple the seemingly invincible Call of Duty marketing machine? Since it’s EA vs. Activision, this will truly be a clash of the titans.
