An analyst at Cowen and Company has stated that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's pre-orders are coming in thick and fast - even faster than the previous two.
I don't even have MW 1 or 2 yet!!!... sigh... games come out too fast.
It's ok, you played one MW game, you played them all. ;)
These people have learned nothing. They are like sheep going back to the same old thing over and over again. Pre-order Battlefield 3 or Gear Of War 3 instead.
Battlefield 3 for me. Black Ops was too much of a bad experience.
ye black ops is a 6/10 game at best(multiplayer wise) but once something's popular, quality goes out the window as a reason for buying.
yeah people just get obsessed with playing what everyone is playing, its sad, Im eagerly awaiting dark souls and uncharted 3 more than anything this year
Hell yeah! Dark souls, bf3 and skyrim for me.
Hate all you want. Call the game crap if you want Praise BF all you want. In the end, people are still going to prefer Call of Duty. They might buy BF, but the'll drop it fast and go back to Call of Duty. Just look at the games that top XBL; BF is at the bottom (even lower that CoD 4). Finally, the game may look like shit, but it's fast (60fps) and fun; meaning most people care more about fun than graphics. Peace
Well said buddy! Its all about the gameplay and this is why COD sells so much.
COD is that safe haven that everyone will return too. We hate it for many reasons: noobs owning pros, too casual of a shooter, etc. But the fact is until people get used to another shooter enough to cling to that, this is what it is. Once something scares/disappoints/shows change in another shooter, people run back to what they are most comfortable with. hate on it, but the best way to wean people off of COD is to add those elements into other shooters and allow them to grow out of COD. Part of BRINK being kicked on is truly because it's so original that COD fans can't grasp it. That is why you get perks in shooters, or why they relax the controls in Killzone 3, or why MoH Teir One was made. They are trying get those fans. Just do your part and support the new games. I don't hate COD, I just see it as it is. Like Guitar Hero, after a while people will get bored and something bigger will overtake it. I get the game play the story, play online a bit and then move on. If you abandon everything else for COD and not diversify your gaming time, then that is on you. Then you have no reason to complain. You all want a tip, just rent it. Play the campaign, play a little bit online, then focus on Battlefield 3, or Resistance 3, or Gears 3, Uncharted 3, etc.
you r right gameplay is much better than graphic
not surprising really
This could just be communication to make people confident. Could be the exact opposite in fact
You haven't ... even.. ... seen... ...gameplay!!! Forget MW3, pre-ordering in general is getting out of hand.
If this is true, then I mean wow, I would never, in my entire life, put my money into something that I literally know nothing about. Let's hope for their sake, the game actually turns out to be half decent.
Money changes hands in a pre order. If it turns out crap, you cancel before release day, simple. @ below, of course you can, but why would you indeed, I can't wait to play it again..
Can I cancel my Gears 3 order now i've played the Beta? Not that I want to, I'm just wondering if I could.
exactly iistuli. I have never bought a COD game since COD2 but i have played MW1 and 2 campaign and i enjoyed it, though not enough to buy them. But i realize that if that is what people like, then that is their decision and i have no right to judge or insult them.
This is insane... As far as I know there isn't even any footage of this game. Sometimes I feel like I am the only person sick of the CoD series.
Oh man it'd be hilarious if the game didn't have multiplayer. XD
Buying the latest COD game has become a tradition. It's just accepted now and people do it because everybody does it.
Honestly think millions of people all over the world on all the platforms just play COD because everyone else does ? Maybe all these millions of people actually enjoy it, why is that so hard for people on here to understand...
CoD is trendy people follow trends. How many people bought a Nintendo Wii because it was the "hot" thing and still play it today? How do silly bands become attached to every kids arm in America? Why did we ever tight roll our jeans? I am not saying EVERYONE who plays CoD does it because others do. I am just saying that CoD has found it's way to pop culture and there are PLENTY of followers in for the ride. Just as every trend starts, peeks, and ends. CoD's reign will eventually fall. I like CoD because it has brought a lot of people into gaming in general and it's great they have fun with it! I just hate how other devs chase the CoD formula.
it will be at least 4 more years before the cod fad dies down. even ten, it will still be coming out. the games are fun, but if that's all you play i feel sorry for you. i have a variety of games from different genres and cannot possible just play cod or fps all day.
Breaking News! One of the best selling series ever is getting a huge number of preorders! In other news, grass is green, says scientists.
Wrong game to preorder kiddies. You want Battlefield 3 instead.
Well there are allot more children in the gaming community.
Right, only kids play cod. Your statement is so inaccurate it's not even funny.
wow they can actually get away with keeping the same game but adding a number to it. Impressive/worrying
Yes this is insane, yes it is getting overrated and silly. But who are you guys to tell people what they should buy?
If I wanna spend my money on the most played MP game in console history, that's up to me. At least there's always full lobbies when I go on, unlike most other games.
That's right! If you want to help stagnate the industry by buying this instead of a brilliant new IP then who are we to complain?
What you mean like all EA Sports games every year, or how about Gears of war on 3, Killzone on 3 Metal gear on 4 Gran turismo on 5, Halo ive lost count and as for Battlefield its on 5 including Bad Company's .shall I go on....... As for brilliant new ip, I buy games for both consoles every time there's a decent game out, just got La Noire today, but I just enjoy a quick Shoot up here and there and COD games are right up my street for that and I won't apologise for it. @funandgun, I agree with you about the wii as I know people did buy them as it was the new hot thing and don't play it anymore, but looking at the figures people are STILL playing COD games online, and that's the difference.
The COD online gameplay is top notch! But the single player campaigns are too short, way to linear and the respawning A.I. is unrealistic and uncalled for. COD will continue to dominate the way Madden does each year. It's become an annual event, and won't be dethroned until you see a chain reaction of one friend after the other jumping ship to support Battlefield. So even if Battlefield trumps COD in every department, you still have to have friends of friends follow each other over to the likes of Battlefield before it becomes the new Fall champion. I'm not a fan per say, just more of a realist who has watched this industry change so much over the past 3 decades.
lol when will people ever learn, watch as soon as they get mw3, wait for a few weeks and people will start complaining again just like how they did with mw2 and black ops...pathetic.
