I'm sorry, but all this MW3 "information" is getting a little silly. Would the box art, and as in an earlier article perks and weapons, really be revealed/leaked before the title has even been announced?
The art looks... "Fabulous".
ugly font much
Whoa talk about BC2 et al. rip off!
MW3 is going to be huge....Battlefield 3 going to have a huge challenge.
If it wasn't the real thing, it would be quite an astute mockup, as a ton of market research seems to have made this happen. If the legalese between Zampella and Ward and Activision really bars them from making another "Modern Warfare" title, they probably brought a ton of gamers in to see what would be the most recognizable title substitute. MW does the job, make it brand-recognizable night-vision green, you've got Modern Warfare without the words. The MW3 abbreviation seems to sidestep Zampella/Ward doing any type of litigation over IP infringement - with MW3 together, it's not even completely concrete that it describes a sequel. To the courts, it would be really hard to make the case that they sold this as "Modern Warfare 3," or even "Anything 3." It could be a code (P.N.03?) or whatever. Now watch as they totally sell it as Modern Warfare 3, and I'm wrong. Heh.
except for losers who love generic glitchfests - who the hell cares?
this isn't mw3 cover.
Really Bland box art
Looks... okay... Kinda looks like the rest, so maybe it is. Haha
Well, of course it's gonna be just like the rest. People buy the hell out of CoD games, so they're not about to change it. I personally wish they'd build a new graphics engine for the game, as well as bring the gameplay back to the original Modern Warfare (CoD4). That was CoD heaven, whereas the following iterations slowly dove down into the depths of Hades, gameplay-wise. More and more "cheap" and "noobish" gameplay elements were brought in, such as overpowered shotguns and the Commando perk (where you can knife people from ridiculously far distances). This game will sell well, but I won't be contributing to its sales, UNLESS they bring it back to its roots and the gameplay is like CoD4 again (which I highly doubt is going to happen).
I love how you actually think that CoD 4 was balanced at all. Sure, it was better than the others, but still not really. Have you really forgotten about the M16's one burst kill? Or the MP5's ridiculous overall greatness? Or perhaps the terrible 5 v 5 Sniper battles in public lobbies because of the one shot kills with no disadvantages? The game was also unbalanced. It was a twitch shooter to the core, requiring barely any intellect other then map memorization. And, just like all of the Call of Dutys, it was usually the P2P Host who would win most, if not all, gun fights should the players be of equal skill.
Yeah, I forgot about the M16 and MP5 being a bit overpowered. But, still, I'd consider CoD4 the best of the next-gen CoD games by far. Yeah, there were some downfalls, but overall it was just the best one, in my opinion.
i'll have to agree. i think CoD4 was the best, with MW2 coming in second. after that i'm not sure why i kept picking them up. i guess hoping for something better than than what the last had to offer.
^^^ This is N4G and your opinions are wrong! Just kidding I agree with you both.
I agree with CoD 4 being the best of all the Call of Duty's, but I still dislike the franchise in general.
The walking man,the gun,the sparks below,the green title yup,that's it same old,same old
I think it looks cool! :/
I don't know, I don't care
You cared enough to click on this link and write a comment.
why do you guys comw on here just to bash it?? if you dont like it dont freaking click on it!
I disagree. Everyone is allowed his or her opinion and has equal right to voice their opinion in the manner they see fit.
i neversaid they didnt but its a bit stupid to complain about somthing you dont have to click on. and now i only have 3 bubbles you all suck!
I gave you a bubble. I know what you mean. It's sort of the same thing when people complain about a videogame system that they don't own or try to bash it.
Looks just like bf3 cover the only difference the gun.
maybe to a blind person, other than a guy walking they don't look that similar at all the soldier amongst havoc has long been a call of duty thing when it comes to cover art, I tend to feel battlefield kind of started ripping them off
true dat COD had that icnonic image of a guy walking amongst choas way before BF3 and they just started opying COD's cover and going a bit more mainstream cuz of CODs success.
CALL OF DUTY: GALACTIC WARFARE (I CAN DREAM)
Looks real to me
Its pretty bland and boring, so most likely real indeed.
I think Activision is leaking these things on purpose to whip the interwebs up into a hyped frothing frenzy.
kind of leaning toward this thought as well, seems suspicious that they haven't even posted a teaser and we are almost to e3 usually call of duty is announced well ahead of e3 and they show a gameplay demo at e3 mw2's teaser trailer was launched in march of 09 blackops was teased at the very beginning of may
I disagree, I think if that were the case we would see a screenshot or video leak that showcases the improvements. I think this could be a fake anyway, it doesn't even spell out "Modern Warfare 3" and simply abbreviates it as MW3. As we've seen with Modern Warfare 2, I think they want as much recognition on the box as possible.
Looks a bit dull.
This is just TOO bland to be real. We all know that Since CoD4, the covers have been pretty simple (someone mentioned it's always been a soldier walking amongst havoc), but a plain ol' Black/white cover with a soldier dude (who, i might add, looks suspiciously like a silhouette of that guy with the bandana in Black Ops... "Woods" i think his name was?) Not just that, but the lime green "MW3" font is a little off to the actual "modern Warfare" font that's been used since CoD4. I'm gonna say it's a clever photo-shopped fake ;)
I could see this being a concept for a final box art but definitly not the final box art. If nothing else, it says MW3 not Modern Warfare 3. Activision was afraid to take off the Call of Duty on MW2 so why would they take off the Modern Warfare on MW3.
The logo looks like something made in Microsoft Paint. Why is this "information" getting so much buzz. MW3 = MW2, like COD:BO = COD:WAW. Same game, renamed. With all the previous issues unfixed, and new ones cropping up. Hopefully the least they can do is to make it work on both consoles this time.
Nice picture... is it of you? Or people that play COD? I could care less about what you think. the next game will be released and the same things will follow... like the last three games. So keep being blind to the facts.
Yes, it is me after reading your comment. Obviously you don't like Call of Duty so why are you posting here? Nobody cares that you think all the games are the same. Is it too mainsteam for you, you 'hardcore' gamer you? D'aww, that's so cute. Oh and btw, you COULDN'T care less. If you could care less, well then you care. Seriously, read over that sentence again. I don't get why people get this very simple thing wrong all the freaking time.
Everything looks awesome except the "MW3" part, if it said Modern Warfare 3 maybe it'd look better.
No guys I found the real cover here it is lol
This is great. Now the children and mentally retarded can buy MW3 while real gamers such as myself can get Battlefield 3. That way, we'll all stay in our own leagues.
"This is great. Now the children and mentally retarded can buy MW3 while real gamers such as myself can get Battlefield 3. That way, we'll all stay in our own leagues." Oh SephireX.. If I could only be half the supreme troll-nerd that you are.. but alas.. my skill at videogames is just merely average. Well..while you hold first place on the leaderboards in Battlefield, I'll have to stagnate in the CoD lobbies with children and retards.. sigh... well I can always dream of being a "real" gamer like you. (read this with extreme sarchasm Troll Nerd)
Doubt it, that box art looks terrible. I think the "MW3" is what kills it.
it looks weak
The green font reminds me of Dirt 3.
I hope not... Looks like Flubber!
I hope they have something based on the recent OBL death. Maybe feature JSOC with stealth heli.
I can care less about anything about the game, I just want to hear DEDICATED SERVERS or no. You make so much money on a game and yet no dedicated servers. I want to know if you got dedicated servers, this way I can sleep better.
I dont understand why a guy walking with a gun is so cool.
looking foward to mw3 will be better than battlefield 3
