News Comments > Modern Warfare 3 Sets Sales Record

If you enjoy it then all power to you spend you money and have fun but next time read through a thread a few times before you reply to make sure you understand someones point of view.

See, what's funny is that your point of view has actually now changed. Your complaint is now about a lack of innovation, which as you'll notice had you actually read and understood my reply, I don't really have a problem with. That said, I do find it amusing, if just because none of the other main franchises are also really innovating either.

If the list of features present in these games isn't worth it to you, that's fine, but that doesn't mean they're skimping on the development in any way. They're just doing the same thing they've always done, because it would seem that's what a lot of people continue to want.

Personally, I'd just call that good business, but hey, maybe money's just not as important to you as it is to these guys.

I think BF3 really hurt MW3.

On the PC, I think it's Skyrim that hurt it more. While I went for MW3 this week, I'm seeing what you are; that is, so many others on my Steam list playing Skyrim instead. While shooter fans may have gotten their fill from BF3 and have passed on MW3 because of that, I'd say far more only budgeted for one title at around this time, and decided Skyrim was going to be it.

It is what it is and while it breaks records Activision will churn out another Map pack (sorry I mean full game) next year guaranteed. Wouldnt you ? very little effort for maximum reward. It strikes me that with there being so little apparent development

That's a bit harsh. It has a complete single player campaign, fully-featured multiplayer, Spec Ops missions, and Spec Ops survival. It's not like there's not lots to do, and unlike Battlefield 3, there really is something for everyone.

I don't mind criticism with regards to its lack of innovation or because it using the same engine, but all you're really doing is making stuff up because you don't like that it sells so well.

Why would you even consider buying this pos in the first place?

I don't know, maybe because I did my homework. Wouldn't want to be accused of being a mindless fucking drone, after all.

The thought occurs that if people can't get enough of something, you continue to make money supplying it. Isn't that like, good business practice 101?

I don't get it, everyone else is out for as much money as they can get, nobody bats an eyelid. Activision cater to what many gamers obviously want, and people cry foul?

They're a business boys, just like all the others.

The sad sad state that is gaming.. BF3 at least does something new and unique.. MW3 doesn't even try.. just the same again and again and again and again. And it sells like drugs

Huh? From where I'm looking, the reverse of that is actually true.

The Battlefield guys made BF3 pretty much multiplayer only in light of it having probably the worst, most consolised single player campaign ever. A pity, granted, because that Frostbite 2 engine is the one to beat. How you can make an engine that great and still fuck up the campaign so badly though, I'll never know, but they managed to pull it off.

If people want to criticise MW3 because it uses the same old engine, fair enough, you can do that. It might still look fine compared to most other shooters, but if it makes you feel better, that's cool. But you can't really complain about it not being unique, innovative, or revolutionary when it's BF3 you're comparing it to.

Too many people complaining about the single player. If you ever thought these games had anything to do with single player whatsoever, you rode on the short bus as a kid. This game has about as much to do with single player as World of Warcraft, haha.

I think you're confused mate, because that's something to be said about BF3, not MW3.

Black Ops hit a home run with the really rather huge amount of offline content stuffed onto that disk, and while I'd say there's not quite as much with MW3, there's still plenty to do for those of us not really into multiplayer.

I'm all for you spending your time in multiplayer if that's what floats your boat, but that's a door that swings both ways.

There is ONE REASON why the majority of the posts below are negative. THAT REASON is becuase people like me OWN YOU THE SECOND YOU LOG ONTO MULTIPLAYER SERVERS.

And I dont mean they are getting beat 12-8. I mean they get OWNED by hard core players 33-1.

AND THAT 1 is from second chance when I happen to be reloading and knifing some other poor fool.

THATS WHY THEY DONT LIKE IT. HAHAhAHAAHAhaahahaaha

For christ's sake mate, put a fucking sock in it. You're making us look bad. No wonder Call of Duty gamers get the rep they do.

On behalf of those of us that are actually enjoying Modern Warfare 3 AND can put together a coherent sentence to save our lives, I want to apologise for this clown.

Okay, so it's not going to win any innovation awards, but it was never going to. I don't touch multiplayer, but the campaign has been reviewed reasonably well (in all fairness, it couldn't be worse than BF3's campaign), and as I said before, Survival is an absolute blast. Granted, that IS why I bought it.

Haven't had a lot of time to read the comments here, but I've been really enjoying MW3's new Survival mode. Not much else to say thus far, but definitely worth it for me.

Just changed my Steam password too. Don't much care for the forums, but as others have said, the value of my Steam account grows all the time, and more security would be welcome.

Not that I wasn't happy it emailed me a confirmation code when putting in a change password request which I had to enter, but one of them key generator thingies would just top it.

Don't know why you would expect it, CoD is clearly not developed for PC.

These days, aside from titles like Minecraft, what is?

I think the last time I turned on the xbox was over a year ago.

I'm the same, which is why I bit the bullet and put my 360 on eBay. It won't go for much though, it's a launch console, manufactured in 2005, still kicking.

That'll happen when you never turn it on though, it doesn't get a chance to heat up and die. I never paid for gold membership either, had it for the first month for free, and that was it.

Waste of money for a pc gamer like me. Live and learn.

News Comments > Modern Warfare 3 Preloads & Other Launch Prep
1. Re: Modern Warfare 3 Preloads & Other Launch Prep Nov 5, 2011, 08:59 Ventura
 
Just out of curiosity, because obviously nobody's gonna drop a lot of money to get the pc version early, but if consoles had unlock times for games like Steam does, does anyone think there'd be any serious fallout from that?

Actually, probably not. Most of those who will already have a copy of MW3 on either the 360 or PS3 will be well aware they have it ahead of the game's official release date, and I doubt those who don't would care too much about having to wait another couple of days.

That said, I'm as much a fan of Steam as the next guy, but I've had it on occasion where it wouldn't let me play a game I've bought from a store, and I'll admit it's not the nicest feeling in the world. It's just as well here in Western Australia stores aren't allowed to be open at midnight, because even if they were and I were able to go get it then, Steam would just make me wait 9 hours before I could play anyway.

Stop buying this kind of crap dammit!

Are you kidding? By all accounts they've done a great job with it this year. Among other things, the new survival mode is getting pretty good press and assures there really is something for everyone (unlike BF3, dare I say).

I'm all for shitting on bad games, but that's not really the case here. The whole 'cod hate' thing is really starting to get old.

Nobody's played this? Survival modes float my boat.

Alas, gameplay videos have not been as impressive as I'd hoped, and at $30 it's a little expensive for an indie title.

I'll wait for a price drop. MW3 out next week anyway

Facts...why bother with them when you have fanboi kool aid.

But it's alright to be on your knees lapping it all up when it's DICE you're blowing? Just curious.

What needs to happen is bring to the PC the same level of piracy control found on consoles.

I'm with you mate. It has to happen.

There'd be a way too, but as long as the big guns make their bucks on the consoles, they're not going to care.

It's just a pity, because we're getting games that are just barely scratching the surface of what our machines are capable of.

I'm up for a new Rainbow Six.

Ok so Vegas pissed a lot of people off, what with the whole "crouch behind cover but still see" thing, but I enjoyed it.

They release a half-decent trailer, some kickarse gameplay footage, make it worth while for single player/coop gamers, sure, I'm in.

Piracy is just as rampant on the console as on PC's

I wouldn't say it was even close, to be honest. How many consoles out there are going to be chipped? 1 in 20? 1 in 50? 1 in 100?

I'm not making excuses, but on any PC you can copy over that crack and you're good to go.

If I'm honest, it's a purchase I'm actually regretting, although to be fair, that's as much my fault as it is theirs, because I'm not really as much into multiplayer as I used to be.

That said, it does have a single player campaign, and a couple of coop missions, so it's not like they're not trying to cater to us all. I was just expecting so much more from the campaign, and once I've finished it, there's going to be next to no reason for me to fire up the game again.

Hmm, maybe I should try selling my Origin account on Ebay or something. If you can even do that.

News Comments > Quoteworthy - Bach on PC Battlefield 3

I don't know if I'd call a GTX460 "lowly". Its like a year old? (I have one too in my laptop, a year old model. Asus G53JW-A1)

Yeah I must admit, I don't think it's entirely fair. What I mean though, is that it's a credit to the team that I'm able to run their latest and greatest at 1920x1080 using what's pretty much a midrange previous-gen nVidia card, and it still looks pretty good.

Frankly, you could have kept your stupid 4 hour single player campaign and given us the option to have bots fill up the slots on the multiplayer maps.

I'd have much preferred that too. Campaigns have next to zero replayability for me, but I could play against bots forever

Credit where it's due, as far as I'm concerned it's the engine to beat. It runs really well, even on my lowly GTX460.

It's not "fully destructible" though, or whatever people have been claiming, but it does look and sound marvellous.
