Battlefield 3 Has 99 Problems in New Trailer

EA Takes Aim at 'Call of Duty' Through Jay-Z's Lyrics

September 30, 2011 by

With Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 set to be released in the coming months, EA has started stepping up their promotion of the next installment in the Battlefield series, which is gunning to be the official Call of Duty killer. The open beta for Battlefield 3 has just started and is available to play right now on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

In addition to the beta just being released, EA has released a new trailer featuring Jay-Z’s iconic “99 Problems” hit in similar fashion to 2009’s Modern Warfare 2 ads featuring Eminem’s “Till I Collapse.” If you read between the lines it’s pretty obvious who is being referred to as the bitch… let’s just hope the 99 problems aren’t bugs and glitches that will make their way into the full version of the game.
