A number of UK retail listings are suggesting that EA will release anticipated shooter Battlefield 3 just days before Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 arrives on November 8th.
MCV reported earlier this month that Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 were preparing for a release date showdown.
Many inside the industry would be delighted to see the games go head-to-head on November 8th.
However, a quick browse on the many games retail websites reveals the early dearth of MW3 frenzy that has already commenced. Even the might of EA may struggle to square up to that.
