IW Doesn't Care if Three People Play MW3

Infinity Ward does not care at all how many people buy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the company's creative strategist Robert Bowling tells IGN, to the extent that he says: "we don't care if there are three people playing it or 30 million people playing it. If there are three people having a great time then we've done our job correctly and we will be happy." Of course if that's the case, this happiness will serve them well on the unemployment line, but the point he seems to be making is they are making the game they want to make: "We don't care about sales numbers, we don't care about competition, we don't care about beating anyone. Our 100 per cent focus is making a game that we're going to love to play, that we're going to be proud of, and that we know that our fans are going to play."

lol really what a fucking idiot.

I don't get it. Why?

They set out to make a great game that people want to play instead of just focusing on selling copies. That's...kind of what we want, right?

I get the impression that there'd be a thread full of people saying how stupid this guy was no matter what he'd said here.

Because if IW/Activision was really interested in making a good game, and not about keeping yearly profits where they want they would stop releasing the same game with minor changes in it every year and just work to make sure the game they put out 2 or 3 years ago it the product they want.

Instead they make the changes they want and then they charge you retail price for what could be done in a patch. they could also release new campaigns as expansions and implement changes like that, instead of charging full retail.

It's pretty clear when you commit yourself to releasing a game in the same IP once a year where your priorities lie, and it's not with quality, its with quantity (sales.)

Granted, there is new SP. and in that regard he may have a point, but the game is geared towards MP ultimately. COD Elite proves that.

It's cool this guy takes pride in his work. I can respect that but, if it was really about making the game they wanted I don't think we'd be seeing yearly releases.
