CVG: Activision publishing CEO Mike Griffith has admitted that the firm isn't expecting this year's Treyarch-developed Call Of Duty 7 to eclipse sales of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2.
less bugs and a beta will be bigger than Modern Warfail 2.
YEHA, Because you lost all of your fans with how bugged mw2 was... :@
no its called "Modern Glitchfare 2" haha
modern camping 2 failed so bad.
Modern "Killspree" Warfare 2
IMO, COD5 was a lot better than COD6. I really enjoyed WaW's online and Nazi Zombies and other than the constant grenade spamming, the SP(and the Split-Screen Co-op) was pretty decent. I hope Treyarch can pull of a much better CoD than IW.
The main reason is that the 360's hardware has already been maxed, so these multiplatform games aren't going to get any better.
Campers on Duty: Money Wasted 2 The only reason ill pick up COD7 if they add zombies. Thats pretty much the only reason why I still own WAW.
so...what? it'll be 3 hours long? hard to get much smaller. but hey, there's still at least 4-5 million mouth breathers that will continue to prove activision can screw over the consumer and get away with it.
Great support for Treyarch Activison.
Well I think everyone saw this coming 100 miles away the day they decided to give the pc community the cold shoulder. In all my years of pc gaming I've never saw a game released with so much bugs, glitches, connection issues, and balance issues. Console gamers got to see this first hand which is pretty hilarious as it used to be console games that usually didn't need patches. what's sad is most of the console gamers that now know how bad MW2 is will STILL shell out the cash for a couple new maps in a few weeks. Especially considering if given the tools, pc gamers would create better maps...for free
really?... cant you just pick up a shooter with zombies that has a story why there are zombies?
I wonder how big Call of Duty 22 will be?
CoD with Zombies is better than MW2. It could be a bigger hit than they think.
After devoting 195 hours of actual gameplay online, I have only encountered glitching twice on the PS3. It's probably a lot more common on the 360 because that console is much easier to hack, but I bought MW2 used for my PS3 and not for my 360. To this day it still has over 400,000 active players online everyday. Even though Activision is the devil in a corporate suit, the game was obviously not a 'fail'. I am thoroughly enjoying the Bad Company 2 demo, and was very pleased to discover that the mic worked perfectly fine on my PS3. BF1943 still doesn't support mics on the PS3. I don't doubt that COD7 will not be as successful. Personally for me, I dislike historical shooters as well as sci-fi shooters. I used to love the Halo franchise on my 360, but ODST left a sore taste in my mouth. Right now I'm just looking forward to Bad Company 2 as well as Medal of Honor reboot.
Everything about [email protected] was better than MW2, the matchmaking, weapon balancing, map design, less bugs... only the under the map bs, and Nazi Zombies... tell me how MW2 beat that? because it has a AK47 and M16?? sorry i still choose MP40 with dual magazine Stopping power with steady aim... and bandoiler and betties. Lol "Tojo in the Dojo" love that... Cliffside my favourite map anyone beat 126 kills 11 deaths???... Im pretty proud of that one... i had constant dogs... f***ing hilarious....and i was host.
Campers on Duty: Modern Glitchfail 2 sounds better.
but HATED gun sounds in MW2.. am I the only one?!
I know what you mean. Try playing Battlefield BC 2 and then switch over to MW2 and compare the sound effects. BC 2 has you on your toes all the time, even if no one is firing at you. Roaring sounds of distant explosions, soldiers yelling out commands etc. It just sets the mood perfectly.
Yes sound effect is top notch for BFBC2. MW2 sound effect is no good.
@infamousinfolite Or maybe Campers on Duty 7. Campers on Duty 7: Modern Campers 3. Campers on Glitches, etc. I hope better Ideas in the next CoD, from Campers to Glitch are tagged on MW2 now. @Soda Popinsky BFBC2 is better than MW2 in overall. Specially in the Sound and Special FX. You need a surround system to experience what I am saying.
Wow, it's been milked that far eh? I actually don't mind the altering of Treyarch and IW. I don't think anybody expects Treyarch's games to be bigger than Modern Warfare but I sincerely hope they don't fail as much as IW did with their craptacular excuse for a multiplayer.
I don't mind it either. The only thing I don't like is that it's every year and it's a buggy product because Activision just wants to make a quick buck and couldn't give a sh1t about consumers.
IW should be more concerned at how they are going to repair the damage to the Modern Warfare series instead of worrying about Treyarch's new game.
Well IW and Activision have already lost a future consumer after MW2, so no matter what IW do, I won't buy it because it'll be the same as the previous game.
2 reasons. 1- Microsoft has a Halo game coming out that will rape its sales on 360 and hurt the media reception as well. 2- Everybody in the media creams over IW so if they don't make it, it won't make it.
Your first reason is invalid. Halo 3 and Cod4 launched around the same time on 2007 and evidently neither of them hurt each other's sales.
Halo and Call of Duty aren't really competitors. They won't affect each other as much as you think. People either like the Halo style, or they like the COD style. Some like both. But a killer Halo won't persuade COD fans to convert, and vise versa.
I don't know if the game will be good or not, but Activision's kind of being an ass to one of their own developers. Activision might have just said... "Yo Treyarch, I'm happy for you, and I'm gonna let you finish, but Infinity Ward makes the best Call of Duty games of all time. Of all time." Though, I can already guess Infinity Ward's next game.
Lol! that picture...
So this means COD7 will be better than COD6 right?
Modern Warfare was my last COD game for a long time. The crap has gotten old. Activision's constant spamming of these every year and terrible post launch support has pretty much killed the series. I know I am not alone, there are going to start seeing the "law of diminishing returns" just like the Guitar Hero series.
More first person shooters we didnt have enough of em already.
Not gonna get the next Call of Duty game. There have been too many within a short time frame, and they have not progressed at all.
March 2: BBC2 Summer 2010: Medal of Honor Fall 2010: Brink Fall 2010 Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Fall 2010 Halo:Reach Holiday 2010: Crysis 2 Holiday 2010: Call of Duty 7 Early 2011 Bulletstorm (Epic Games) Unconfirmed: Resistance 3, Killzone 3
Halo Reach too. Between all these games I guarentee many will be pushed back into 2011 creating an oversaturation of titles then.
Medal of Honor has a near perfect target release date, they need to keep it. Although I think it's the fall.
Hopefully Socom:4 this XMAS. We should be hearing info after the MAG hype has died down.
@frankymv You didn't mention the Shooter and revolutionary game online on consoles. Why is that?
Not just Modern Glitchfare 2 my friend but Modern Warfail 2 aswell
They really don't have to make it as big. The thinking here is even if a fraction of the people that bought MW2 buys CoD 7, it'll still be a success (read: millions sold).
disagree if you want but i could say this honestly activision did not care about cod fans. If they did they would have released a beta and all these issues with the online and bugs and glitches would have been found out earlier on but they was only confident in sales i honestly don't expect the next modern warfare game to sell as well as the second one.
Yeah that's true, although they "CLAIMED" they didn't release a demo or do an open beta test so that they can...ehem..."Fine Tune" the Game. We see how that turned out....Yeah.
Wanna bet on that. I can think of several dozens people who want a rebound Call of Duty Game right now. BTW Bill Gates will cover the bet.
CoD has become a total exploitation franchise for Activision, and having played it from CoD 1 on the PC, MW2 was the final straw. The SP campaign was always intense but MW2 was a ripoff and to come out with another sequel so soon is a total ripoff. BFBC2 is way better for MP and keeping my fingers crossed for a successful refresh of MoH.
im anticipating this one since its from Treyarch. I never really like IW that much to begin with lol. esp with all that glitches and stuff
Modern Warfare was a great game don't get me wrong, but I have been playing [email protected] since it came out and i prefer accurate one shot kills over spray and pray...which is why i HATE Modern Warfare 2, no skills required. I really hope people stop comparing Treyarch and Infinity Ward like they are the same people, Infinity Ward screwed it up with their last game, thinking they could release a dodgy piece of crap and think that next game they'll be back on top. I'm glad they screwed up, cos Treyarch is the bastard child that everyone forgets. Here's to Treyarch and their BETTER game.
If the game was called cod: Future warfare with a kick ass plot, uber weapons space fighting with a beta with a fine tuned bug picking comb it might, Na they wouldnt do that.
i hope they make a stand alone game of the zombie nazi thing. the story behind it is brilliant.
Anything is more welcomed than this MW2 piece of crap released to the masses. I can't stand MW2. I only play it because my boys are on it all the time. I've decided to stay at level 2 prestige because there is really no point in me going any further. Hell I enjoy Bioshock's online better than MW2. So if this installment of COD is better than [email protected] it would equal higher value than MW2 for me. They still can't figure out the lag issue from MW1
Why talk about Call of Duty 7 already? There's still 5 and 6 to be seen before that.
COD 4: Modern Warfare COD 5: World @ War COD 6: Modern Warfare 2 Though their not labeled as such that is how most gamers see them.
What will gamers do when they actually do release CoD5 and eventually 6? Or perhaps they'll just continue without numbers as not to confuse people that's been dragged along the wrong way.
I was a HUGE fan of the original Modern Warfare, but MW2 is just a random sprayfest where alle you can do is cross your fingers and hope the game registered your shots first. May MW2 burn.
I feel sorry for Treyarch, they are stuck between a rock and a hard place since Infinity Ward dropped the ball with Loll of D00dy: Modding Glitchware 2. I've always enjoyed the CoD series whoever the developer was.
Hopefully it's better than Modern Warfare 2. I absolutely hated that game. I thought World at War was good (mostly because of Nazi Zombies) so I'm expecting good things.
Camp a doodie has issues that it seems the patches don't even fix. WaW sucked and call of duty 4 wasn't too bad it just got old quick like camp a doodie.
It's being done by Trey Arch and not Infinity Ward....DUH
