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."

I mean look at Star Wars Episode I and how much money it generated, I think we can all agree it's the best of the movies, right?!

There was over a 15 year wait between Return of the Jedi and Phantom Menace. Be fair to say that the demand was up there for more Star Wars content, and that Ep 1 would have done well regardless of its quality.

We can start talking about games again though, anytime you're ready.

Which proves my point, quality and popularity are not synonymous, which was what you were arguing.

We are talking about games, and like other entertainment mediums, the umbrella games fall under, the rule of quality and popularity not being the same thing still stands.

Though, if you insist I use a example in gaming, Farmville.
Few games could claim more fame and popularity, but I think we'd all agree it's far from a quality title.
