* DuelingGames: Explicit setup and marketed by ElectronicArts to take on VideoGame/CallOfDuty. The TagLine for ''Battlefield 3'' is "Above and Beyond the Call".
** Also, [=BF3=] is an opportunity for EA to tout its new Origin online service, which is a pretty blatant attempt to compete with Valve's Steam service.
** There are also parallels between Battlelog and Call of Duty Elite. Both are game-centric social networks, with features such as clan organization and stat tracking. There's even Battlefield Premium, which is like Call of Duty Elite Premium.
** The Close Quarters DLC seems like it is really taking the fight up close to ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare 3'', since the Battlefield series usually focuses on very large maps and long range warfare, as opposed to the ''Call of Duty'' series, which focuses on smaller maps. The Close Quarters DLC, as the name suggests, focuses on indoor fights in tightly packed places.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Very early rumored reports for ''3'' had 40-on-40 player teams, used the ''Bad Company'' engine, actual character customization (like choosing camo patterns and helmet types), and bringing back pilotable large naval vessels (only present in ''1942''). Some content like unique paint jobs for firearms and new camo suits have been added, though only for Premium members.

* {{Defictionalization}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azGXoUmlvG0 A tiny, out of the way newspaper texture in Strike at Karkand]] has the header for 4chan's video game board on it, along with "Why haven't you got a girlfriend yet" (a typical /v/ post) underneath. For about a week after this was discovered, /v/ had that exact text on the top of every page.
