Origin Takes On GameSpot In A BF3 Showdown

This Friday, Origin and GameSpot will be fighting for FPS supremacy on the Battlefield. Tune in at 11:00 a.m. PST for some ego bruising, missile launching fun – plus some prizes for the fans.

Friday's match is the latest in a line of Origin Versus matches, but it’s also gearing up to be one of the most fun. Both Origin and GameSpot will be putting together a crack team of Battlefield 3 vets to participate in an all-out, four-on-four firefight, and whoever loses will be supplying a prize to the Battlefield community.

If GameSpot wins, Origin will be giving them 30 Back to Karkand codes to distribute as they wish. If Origin wins, GameSpot will instead be handing over some prime Internet retail – a space on the GameSpot.com home page for a very special community-made Battlefield 3 video. No matter who loses, the fans win.

Head to the official Origin Versus page to catch the battle on Friday, December 16. If you still need to pick up a copy of Battlefield 3 – or the Back to Karkand expansion – you can find them both at the Origin store.
