Long list. Amazing trailer. Better game than MW3? Quite possibly.

Looking better and better. I can't see how this will be"bested" by other current (and forthcoming shooters, ie. "MW3") but I've been wrong before.
From this trailer, however see "Crysis" meets "BF2" in a very big and unequaled way.

Agreed, it might have been a competition in previous iterations, but with this generation BF3 stomps COD completely.
COD will still sell well but it desperately needs a new engine if they want to do well with the next game as well.
