The UK Official PlayStation Magazine has lent credence to speculation that Modern Warfare 3 will be a prequel starring fan favourite character Ghost. The mag's informants strengthen a rumour which first reared its head online early in January.
what lol ? so this is going to be a prequel or sumthing?
Probably a prequel cuz i saw ghost die...I saw it with my owns eyes. ;O;
Do they have no respect for the dead? I see Bobby's diggin' up poor old Ghost for one last walk around the block. Bobby: Make me mah money bitch! Ghost: You can count on me daddy I'm ur bottom bitch.
Watch Activision release this CoD around It's normal schedule. Probably 11/11/11. Haha, 11 days after Uncharted 3. Everybody who has to choose between the 2 better make the right decision and buy Uncharted 3 and stop supporting CoD. I would be so happy for the games industry if Uncharted 3 outsold MW3 this year.
To be honest it didnt make sense killing off their most markatable character in the game....
@Redman22 Lol so true. Seriously though, MW3 better improve the franchise because as far as I can see, it has been going downhill since CoD4.
sorry Last but i have to disagree. even though i will be picking up UC3, people can chosse how they want to spend their own money. it really doesn't affect me.
I doubt it'll be 11/11/11 because that is when Skyrim comes out
How about you guys read the article you know? It clearly answers your question right in the first sentence. Its even in the description right above your comments. Come on now, use common sense.
Bigg Didn't you hear? IT'S HARD TO READ for todays kids. Everything is digital and video bra
Meh if they're doing a prequel they should drop the 3 and call it Modern Warfare: _____ I hope they go back to cod4's gameplay but ditch juggernaught/stopping power/martyrdom and give it dedicated servers on all platforms i'd be very happy with that. Although im still sticking to my decision and that is to ignore the hype and let the game release a month or 2 before i even decide to get the game.
Stopping power isn't bad, is it? Overall, death streaks need to go. And dedicated servers hell yea! lol but even with that I still feel like this game would die out shortly.
I liked stopping power better, while it helped noobs be able to get kills better, more experiences players could drop it in favour of a more tactical perk- like UAV Jammer (or Cold Blooded in MW2) and still be able to take down opponents easily.
Not the same without Infinity Ward though is it?
Man...they did Ghost WRONG in MW2. Roach too. Was it really necessary to shoot and burn them? Why not just detain them and say " don't tell anybody about this or youre dead?"
But the dramatic scene showing that you shouldn't smoke was a total necessity for MW2!!! Really I think IW were trying to invoke your hate for Shepard.
Infinity ward are still doing it.. whats left of them anyway. Along with sledgehammer games.
yea, but infinity ward isn't the same anymore, only the name is the same
^^^Just under 50 people left during the Respawn controversy, Infinity Ward had over 100 employees before that. Most of the original team would still be at the company then.
yes, but nobody that actually directed anything is still there, everyone that actually mattered in art direction are gone
As long as its not Treyarch and PS3 gamers dont get screwed
So is it gonna be a true sequel or just a spinoff?
It would have to be a prequel. Ghost is dead. I am not talking about the "sniper missed a vital organ and never confirmed the kill" kind of dead. I am talking about the "he was shot at point blank range, doused in gasoline, and burned" kind of dead.
Well, why not bring him back as an actual ghost? Make it even wackier than the last half of Black Ops.
But the most important question is still: Are Gaz and Ghost the same person? Did he pull a Kill bill and survive?
I can't figure out why they would make a prequil when they haven't even finished the main story yet. We don't even know what happens to Captain Price and Soap.
READ THE ARTICLE. It's a prequel and it says so.
You can trash talk the COD series as much as you like, but at least it has interesting characters, unlike other FPS such as Killzone or Bad Company.
ive played through every cod campaign, there is nothing memorable or interesting about any of the characters.
@ace Everyone who has played at least 2 levels of KZ2 or KZ1 knows who rico is. Also Bad company has very memorable characters. @wolfman Cpt.Price has the epic beard. Ghost is cool.
Rico? Those characters in KZ2 is remembered as Europeans trying to sound American... result, not good! Too many cliches and swearing in odd places. For CoD, I really don't think most people care about the main characters other than Ghost which is dead beyond resurrection. Didn't they make a comic starring Ghost though? I'm pretty sure Ghost is the most remembered character in MW2. However, I will never forget the awesomeness of Ghillies in the Mist mission with Cpt. Price!
Thats opinion man. I happen to like the characters in Both of those games, and dislike the characters in Call of Duty. Radec, Visari, Rico, and Natko are all great characters in Killzone. I also like the Sergeant, and SweetWater in Bad Company. Can you explain how the characters in Call of Duty are interesting to you? I'm just curious.
Ironically, the only characters I can remember from COD are Makarov and Ghost
BF:BC2 has very memorable characters KZ..not so much
You're blatantly just saying that cuz you hate PS3. I see you trollin' the PS3 all the time. I played through BFBC2 and I can't remember one character. Literally. All I remember is finding a nuke in a ship in the desert. At least with Killzone, you remember 1) The Helghast 2) Rico
I remember Sev of course from KZ along with Templar, Rico and the Helghast. Maybe thats just me but I'm sure some others could agree with me- even if it is only Rico.... That son of a bitch.
Ace_1975, Have you ever even played Bad Company? Those characters are so much better than COD characters. They're also very funny, which is kind of rare for FPS protagonists.
Did Ghost even have one single line in MW2? These games are fun, but I'm constantly asking myself, "Who the hell am I playing as now?"
"JACKSON!!!!! FIre THAT JAVELIN!!!" Oh shut the hell up Im sure Jackson fires that thing of soon... (2 minutes later... dead tired of all the javelin bitching.) Oh wait Im Jackson! :@
LOL COD characters are terrible. Black ops, I have no clue what the hell the flashback of the flashback for the flashback due to the next flashback is.. and how the hell does this russian guy keep getting thousands to die for him?! "FOR RUSSIA!" He gets you to do everything... Its toooooo much convolution. And if the guy knows everything about me, and corrects all my memories that I wrongly remember, doesn't he know all the answers? MW2 was cool. But the rest have fallen way short of that original filmic experience. It just throws out another situation to kill an army by yourself.
sledgehammer games making this? i fought they were rumoured to be making a sci-fi cod game?
key word "rumor"
N4G Rumor = 100% true
"Other wicked whispers featured on the page include... ... and that PS2 games will soon be available to download on PSP." Holy shit do anyone knows if this is true? MGS 3 and Shadow of the collosus on PSP? I'm in... If the good old PSP can play PS2, games I would rather get that for 100 bucks than paying 299 bucks for 3DS...
mw3 best call of duty ever!!!
how can you say that when it hasn't released yet
because he's probably one of those people who whine and bitch about COD but then ends up buying the next installment without hesitation
dont hate me for what i sey i dont play call of duty only rent them 1 time and move on , i have a friend on mi play list that masseage me , cod boops best call of duty ever!! the day the game came out.
Who the hell is Ghost?
Play the game and youll find out. Or better yet Google it. Its much simpler.
I've played both MW1 & MW2 and I still don't know who "Ghost" is. I thought this topic was about a multiplayer map. CoD games don't have interesting stories or characters. It's just random army guy #375.
No-one Important, don't worry . He's a stunt double in the movie "Casper "the friendly military ghost.
Its a Clone!!!!!!
Did anyone else notice that the voice for Ghost was the same as the voice for Gaz in the first MW?
Here's everyone omg MW3 is gonna be the best cod blah blah blah f**k you treyarch and you're shitty blk ops.Then comes release date everyone lined up to get it.Bam they go install it as soon as you boot up you're system you head into laggy multiplayer constant freezes etc etc....and next year will be the same.
Omg omg omg omg omg ....another CoD -________- '
I am sorry but to me if PS2 games can be downloaded that is bigger news then what Modern Warfare 3 will be about. There is loads of great PS2 games & if I can be able to download them to play them again that will be awesome. I wonder though if it meant the NGP & not the PSP though. I would guess that the PS3 would also be able to download the PS2 games. So I really hope that PS2 games can be downloaded soon.
some said 1 thing. let make an entire article for it. i mean it has to be the truth and have substance because it comes from a PS3website and you know how good the COD series has treated ps3 owners right? you know we get that dlc right away & our FLOPS from Gheyarch ran very well, it was almost as sweet as that still popular title they did called World @ War. friday sarcasm
lolwat? People care about the story in CoD? GASP* 0_O
They don't stand a chance against bf3, by how much you get for the same price
What are the chances of two Call of Duty titles this year? One from Infinity Ward and one from Sledgehammer games?
Ooooooooh another COD game re-skinned and labeled MW3. Give it up Acti.
They'll never give it up. They'll do the same thing to CoD that they did to Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk. Exploit the living crap out of it until eventually nobody gives a crap anymore.
Oh great thats just what we need. Expaned nouthing more on the ending of MW2. In stead lets hold off on that and make a prequel instead! >_<
hahaha cod games they just get crAper each time.
Getting it day one. Yeah, i said it.
I'm getting it never friendy wendy. Happy sony fanboy day! ____________ Sony 'til I die
Don't be a sony fanbitch. And you say that now. But you'll buy it... You'll all buy it...
they were talking about a prequel for ghost for a long ass time...like when mw2 just came out and IW was still cool and everybody thought treyarch was garbage
Do me all a favour guys, don't buy this game brand new or on release day, I've lost respect for both Infinity Ward and Treyarch and of course the worse, Activision. Every COD seems to have a problem, so we have to teach them a lesson that until they give us a complete working game, we should refuse to pay for a half ass game.
