With two of the biggest shooter franchises of all time going head-to-head later this year, we want to know which game PS3 owners are most looking forward to: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3?

Though both games will undoubtedly offer similar cinematic set-pieces throughout their single player campaigns, both are set to offer a different gameplay experience, particularly via their respective multiplayer components.

With Battlefield 3’s heritage lying in warfare on the grandest of scales, you can expect 24-man, squad-based, open-field warfare, where going it alone is likely to result in instant death. Modern Warfare 3 on the other hand will be packed full of compact skirmishes and fast-paced battles. Both titles are set to really up the ante with their multiplayer game modes, with a host of great features including a range of impressive matchmaking options. It's too early to tell which game will come out on top, but we know many of you will already have your favourite.

We’ll be bringing you full previews of both games in due course, but what we want to know right now is: Will you be buying both games later this year, or will you choose one over the other? Let us know by entering the poll over at our community forums, and feel free to post your comments about how you came to your decision.

Battlefield 3 is set to launch on October 25 (U.S.) and October 28 (Europe) with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 due for release a week or so later on November 8, 2011.
