Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer beta being played over public Xbox LIVE, going more widespread before launch?
Either it's fake, or there is some testing going on as per usual. Either way, we won't be able to play it for now.
nothing amazing though the game is probably 99% simular to the last 4 COD releases. Its just new maps people :P have fun paying 60usd for maps rofl.
(insert your favorite sequel here) enjoy paying (insert amount here) for new maps rofl see what i just did
@EYEamNUMBER1 Show another game where it's $15 for 4 maps x 3 times. They're gouging people on the DLC.
And what do you pay $60 for that isn't the same as the last? And to be perfectly honest it's a franchise for a reason. If you don't like said franchise for being(guess what?) a franchise then don't buy it. If you really want to hate on recycled gameplay and new maps I suggest you head over to a BF article. It's been almost a decade and all they have changed is the setting.
@radphil so? that really has nothing to do with what i was saying NOT throwing your money away isn't that hard if people are dumb enough to buy map packs then that's on them
I could say the same for every first party game nintendo releases but I dont...most of the time. Mw2 had a few problems but nothing that they should not be able to fix. Black ops just needs a whole new makeover.
"EYEamNUMBER1 so? that really has nothing to do with what i was saying" You're joking right? It's pertains exactly to what you said. You responded to someone else commenting on paying 60usd for maps, by trying to be witty by going "blank for blank"
Lmfao. You seem to be forgetting that treyarch made black ops and world at war l, which saw zero improvement. Every sequel infinity ward has made (Cod 4 --> MW2) has seen an improvement. Stop trolling. I guarantee you just played mw2 or black ops an hour ago.
I enjoyed paying $60 for BFBC2 ... paying $0 for new maps since DICE actually knows to reward its fans by giving them the new maps free (with VIP code)
Its legit, if you go on xbox.com then go on one of your friends. Delete the name and enter the gamertag shown in the pic, then u will see that he is playing 'Modern Warfare 3' if he is online that is (he was online when i checked just now)
NO. He's not playing MW3, he's sitting at the dashboard and changed his "Name" under profile settings to "Playing MW3 Beta". What you're playing NEVER appears below your Gamerscore, it always appears in black bar at the bottom under the grey box with all your info. You kids believe everything I swear.
A beta for live? Nothing surprising there the love affair between activision and M$. Let's just hope the game runs the same on PC, and PS3 this time.
not sure what they need to test....been the exact same game since CoD4 :-/
I see that it was faked and I'm sort of embarrassed to say it. I'm going to be honest though. This is why I don't write at 2am in the morning usually. Cheers!
beta and Cod? didn't think they tested the game from the state the ps3 multiplayer was in.
Well they ARE testing it on 360 here >.>
And they tested the games on the 360 before, and they still sucked ass. Not like it's gonna make a difference, the MP will be broken, unbalanced, and full of the same BS everyone's come to expect previously.
Haha yeah I know, I was referring to how it'l be still broken on PS3 especially, while 360 will probably be playable like BO was.
Actually just like phear said it's not real people just change their bios so that it can look like they're playing any game they want I can't believe people actually made a whole topic about it.
What,even with beta,have they ever achieve any balance of MW2 or Cod;BO before?
Anybody can fake these. The amount of articles weve had on fake betas. If they're going to prove its real, show us who is playing it so we can question them ourselves.
My friend is playing Darksiders II! http://twitpic.com/5kp5wh /s
The past games have always had balancing issues only to be patched after the outcry of fans. Remember MW2 and the care package glitch? Or the over powered dual shotguns (yes you heard me, DUAL FRIGGIN SHOTGUNS, something the T1000 Terminator would use) which had such a ridiculous range they might as well have come with a sniper scope attachment. What about Black ops and the problem it had with something as fundamental as sound? They couldn't even get that right. Ninja pro was a redundant perk because you couldn't hear footsteps any way, something which the developers acknowledged AFTER the game was released and fans brought light to the issue. Oh and they even changed spawn points a couple of weeks after the games release. I'm sorry but Treyarch and Infinity Ward really are second class developers when it comes to balancing and even testing their games. I'm not just jumping on the COD hate bandwagon. The facts speak for themselves. Just watch my video : http://www.youtube.com/watc... When a game is released and when core mechanics such as sound or balance are completely overlooked not once, but on repeated occasions, you do get the right to be critical of the developers. If MW3 does not have a beta then I see this as a final nail in the coffin as far as their commitment to proper competitive gamers is concerned. Whilst DICE are refreshingly talking about things such as spawn balance, kd whoring prevention in objective games and having dedicated servers, IW have done very little to allay the concerns of many gamers in any real way.
They wont release a beta for sure they dont want people to know its the same rehashed crap and they dont need to release one they know there going to buy it even with all the connection issues.
Hope its true, alot of the COD games need to be beta tested badly. Because most of the time they have online problems or glitches. So lets hope this is true, GameStop did get would from Activision that the early you preorder MW3, the more stuff you get. Wonder if that means beta?
"GameStop did get would from Activision that the early you preorder MW3, the more stuff you get" Wut?
It's not fake, but it's also indicative of a beta that's going out to masses in any capacity. Private tests happen all the time using the public LIVE servers. For what it's worth, a second picture from the source is up now, and shows the player's Gamertag. "Yahtzee DvN". It's legit. http://live.xbox.com/en-US/...
Dude it's fake. All he did was set his name to "Playing Modern Warfare 3 Beta". That's it. On Xbox.com it goes like this Gamer Pic - Gamerscore Name Locaion Bio What you're currently playing. You can't be playing a Beta on the Xbox 360 Dashboard. You kids are so gullible.
WouldYouKindly is obviously one of them people who are gullible and don't know that it's part of their bio. It's not real just people changing what their bio says even I can do it and put "Playing Modern Warfare 4 Beta" are you going to believe that too?
i love how everyone bitches it yet they still buy it and play with there friends you dont have to buy the DLC's or the new COD's they aint forcing you yes its the same gameplay year in year out but people like it hence why they come back for more dont fix something thats not broken (meaning COD has a special something that attracts people year in year out) if you dont like it get BF but i will guarantee you COD will outsell BF and i dont care about these pre order sales im no COD fanboy im just saying you have to have a really unique game to sell more than COD
Plenty of games are more unique than COD. You also don't have to be a genius to predict that COD will sell more than BF. It isn't because the quality is amazing either. You're right though, they have something which is working from a business standpoint. They won't change it, until it stops hitting those ridiculous sales amounts. But the impact of CODs sales will begin indoctrinating devs. You're also correct about not needing to buy CODs. (ofc)
they only way COD will change is if a miracle happens like being not buying it and getting poor sale figures then they will change the gameplay etc about COD
Lol it is fake fact. http://live.xbox.com/en-US/... no games played and look at his moto it says playing modern warfare 3 beta. The alignment is wrong for the 2nd picture as well it should be more to the right if it was what he was doing. So yeah its fake. Also the title name for the game atm is IW5 not Modern Warfare 3 beta.
Even if this one is fake I wouldn't be surprised. Just like Crytek, they'll show the game almost exclusively on the 360 leaving PS3 gamers with a shoddy product on release.
This looks shopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.
I have one friend who was playing the beta as well. So I know it's probably real. Apparently you sign something so you cant tell anyone about it though.
Look...I keep hearing and hearing hate fir COD series. That $60 you pay is for new maps. Lol Ok, reality is yes the engine is old and is only tweaked from release to release. But, you get most game modes I've ever seen and a community you know will be there day 1 to day 356! Whether you can put a value on that is up to you. Im playing fear 3....it's zombie mode "soul survivor" is waaay better than blops zombie mode (my opinion). But where are the gamers? I understand the frustration in the series. And I agree it needs a serious injection of fresh new ideas....a new engine would be great! But it's still fun arcade fps!
Even they have 10 betas before MW3 launches its going to be buggy and more broken the the previous game. "But its IW!" They made MW2 which was buggy and broken. Not as bad as Black Cocks but it was stretching it.
Yo hes is right the Cod bashing is very annoying. My main genre isn't even FPS games I played enough Cod to know how it works. First off COD from a franchise gets released yearly, theres a subtle difference form a "core" standpoint but when it comes to the new features or updated features such as perks an more importantly the "pacing" is what changes. The "new" Flow of the game mixed with new features and updated features is what makes not just cod but most FPS games. Black ops pacing was really bad. The hitmarkers were off, bullets never fully connected, headshots were way off and very random. So instead of coming up with an assembly line thought process and thinking like everyone else try comprehensive thoughts and come up with reasonable pros and cons. If you're a true gamer
Ok we get it you guys f*cking hate Call of Duty, quit spamming every article related to CoD! No one's forcing you to buy the game and yet you feel the need to voice your opinion. You decide with your wallet! I'm sick of all the negativity twards CoD now. Yes some of the games had problems, but they were still fun games in the end. There's a reason CoD sells so much, it appeals to a lot of people. /rant
True, but I'd rather use my right to free speech than be sheep. Agree with you fully though.
Very easy to fake this. Take a screen cap of your friends list randomly, go on your computer and change it. Then display the image on your tv and take the pic with a camera lol
Besides, who would be on the dashboard and playing the beta at the same time? #fake
Sounds extremely boring. Modern Warfare 3 was one of the worst games at E3 this year.
I remember right when the PS Jailbreak shit first happened, my friend's NES emulator would say he was playing Super Mario Galaxy 2. He made it say sorts of shit, Halo, Gears, Kirby, you name it.
A beta would be a smart move considering Battlefield is killing it in preorders and is already planning it's own beta.
Lol not in the UK it isint. MW3 is the biggest preordered game in the UK so not sure what country you are talking about there but it def isint the UK.
I'm talking about the US of A where it was posted about a week ago how BF3 is currently more preordered than MW3 at GameStop.
Yeah this is fake. It's actually his motto. http://i55.tinypic.com/2vim...
Totally fake and easy to do. Look at AnimeAvenger's photo or just go to his profile. http://live.xbox.com/en-US/... His motto just has a bunch of spaces before it so it moves it all the way over. Right now, he is playing Black Ops but his motto still says "Playing Modern Warfare 3 beta"
Neat trick though eh? Though this has been done before so the writer should have known but I guess just put the article to gain hits. I can only imagine the amount of messages the guy with the motto got.
lol, I'ma do somethin like this .. to try and get on here, on good ol' N4G! :D
