Oh and FYI - it is a Steam game - MW2 is 4.99 at amazon....seems about the right price!

Do you have a link to that? Price I'm seeing is 18.84...

Again? Isn't this the third time? How about releasing a free weekend of MW3 single player. [grin]

Yeah, I'm not even bothering. The last CoD game I bought was MW1, and I'm fine with that. Bringing back dedicated servers for MW3 was too little, too late. The console crowd can have it now.

I tried this for all of 2 hours before deleting it. Wow, what terrible, terrible multiplayer.

I didn't even make it that long. I've been a fan of the CoD games in the past, but this cow is completely dry now. The game has aged, badly, and it seems all of the map designs were done by people who think the old deathmatch 'killbox' maps were the best thing ever. Frankly, the game looks, and plays, horrible. All that money and an incredibly popular franchise--you'd think they would try to improve on the brand instead of drive it into the ground.

BF3's infantry combat, alone, is far superior to MW3. The one good thing about this free weekend is that it's rekindled my interest in multiplayer FPS--I'm gonna have to play me some more BF3 this weekend.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.

I would stay clear if you are a regular player - just going to be rage/hax, etc etc etc. Seeing a lot of new steam accounts popup so they can test their hax to see if they get banned.

Yes it is free if you bought the game, this weekend however you can play the multiplayer without purchasing the game.

I'm not sure whether I'm misunderstanding your question, but:

The offer here is that you can download the multiplayer component of this game for free, and play it over the weekend, without having previously purchased the game.

The offer is of no benefit to existing customers.
