I love competition, it makes for a better product all round and when pulled off in the correct manner it can be funny as hell.
Take exhibit A for example, DICE has coded in 2 MW2 putdowns into their upcoming Battlefield Bad Company 2 where the guys from Bad Company firstly insult those sissy snow mobiles and then they take a shot at the heartbeat monitors on the guns of special forces.
It’s really well done and now the ball is in Infinity Ward’s court to respond, I would recommend a quick trailer showing how those heartbeat monitors help take down the Bad Company or possibly using their snowmobiles to smash into the quad bikes?

It comes down to one thing and one thing only, in my opinion: is your game better? If Battlefield Bad Company 2 is objectively superior to Modern Warfare 2, then I’m all for the tongue-and-cheek. If not, they’re trying to shimmy shine off of someone else’s success.
