Certainly not for mw3.. If anything was decided by a court surely the earliest would be next year.

But seriously... Why would someone want to kill something they created that has become successful out of spite :/

Where the hell are you getting that MW3 is only on xbox??Looks like you need to do some research:D.Cod an xbox exclsuive yea right that would be suicide for Activision.

iamnsuperman2462d ago (Edited 2462d ago )

The only COD exclusive for the Xbox is appearing at Microsoft E3 conference making it seem there is no where else to get COD than on the 360 and announcing exclusive DLC (like every year)

TomInc2462d ago

This got announced when..? Pretty sure it'd be a fools move for them to cut out ps3 and pc gamers.

Any way ontopic....Its only online that people hate COD...In the real world they r still millions playing it every day including me...And i will b buying MW3 day 1...Call of duty has more people that love it then the ones who hate it. Only on N4G does Call of duty get attacked like this. Outside of this website everybody Loves COD.

Still trolling around I see.

I find it ironic that on your profile it says, "I ONLY SPEAK FACTS" You spew nonesense. Go back under your bridge.

It isn't. When did everyone start getting such a negative opinion of call of duty?
Was there something I missed?

I agree. It is just cool to hate on COD now like it was cool to love COD4. They might not make much improvements to there games but the reason for the hate is because it is "cool".

About your comment below (couldn't reply directly to it). I believe so as well. Activision seems to focused on profit, although the purpose of a company is profit. However, it has given them a bad image among gamers, which can, in the end, cause a lot more damage, than longer and more quality development.

a08andan2462d ago (Edited 2462d ago )

You didn't read the article did you :P?

It is not about an "opinion". It is about a legal battle about the rights to the franchise itself. If Jason and Vince would win this case, then they could deny Activision, and every other developer out there, access to the franchise. They most likely won't do that, but if they win, Activision will never publish another Call of Duty ever again.

@Kee: Well it most likely won't be settled before MW3 is released so you won't have to worry about getting your hands on that :)

AdmiralSnake2462d ago

I think the Franchise would be better off with Jason and Vince to be honest.

Kee2462d ago

Guilty, I skimmed it but basically it means MW3 can't be released without their say-so.

Regardless, they can release another call of duty anyway, just not a modern warfare.

Plus my point remains the same. Everyone hates Call of Duty now. What happened? Did treyarch kick your dog or something?

Poopee2462d ago

People on the internet complain about CoD all the time. Go to GameSpot System Wars and you'll see. But they all end up buying it any ways. That's why Activision is so rich. I've personally never purchased any Activision product. It isn't hard. :/

AdmiralSnake2462d ago

Nope Modern Warfare 3 is gonna sell like crazy and kill everything in sales *shrugs*. I hope its balance and keeps the formula.

..thanks to yearly COD4 expansion packs and $15 map packs and selling them to Happy Meal eating kids.

iamnsuperman2462d ago (Edited 2462d ago )

Stop complain about it and instead just do not buy it. COD is catering to the millions of fans who only buy COD and only play online not you or all the other haters. Just do what I am doing an not buy it and stop talking about it.

F4sterTh4nFTL2462d ago

Seriously the last COD I bought was COD4 and then we all know the story after that.

ME19892462d ago

This kind of article always comes up with every COD release.
