“Fall of Duty” Controversy has Little Effect on Consumers

From the feature article: "Since Call of Duty’s shift in direction away from WWII, each release from the Modern Warfare series has had something to prove. Call of Duty 4 had to prove that the contemporary setting would work within the context of the series. Modern Warfare 2 had to prove that Infinity Ward was capable of expanding upon the previous title and outshining the trending competitors. Modern Warfare 3 has more troubling circumstances surrounding the game’s release, but surprisingly, consumers are not as worried about these issues as one might think. The development of Modern Warfare 3 was interrupted by the internal turned legal problems between Activision and former Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella, which lead to their departure and resulting legal actions. The awareness and level of concern from consumers regarding this story are not all that high though."

That means you care, to at least some quantity of careage for which there can be a lower amount...

an xbox site would be trying to do some damage control

M$ has so much stock in CoD DLC that if CoD falls the 360 might as well just kick rocks

Actually, the phrase "could care less" has been around since the '60s. It was originally used with a negative comment, giving it a logical meaning:

"Nobody here could care less."

That statement makes perfect sense, but when the phrase was desired to be used in in a non-negative statement:

"I could care less about politics."

...the phrase itself was left unaltered. While it's worth noting that the phrase is a corruption to begin with, the usage is acceptable and understood in American English as an idiom.

Average COD players don't care they'll buy it either way and camp they're way to MP victory.

iNMyFiN4LH0uR2537d ago

oooohhh so you were the whiny kid in my SnD game today that couldnt take a defeat......

AngelicIceDiamond2537d ago

Oh yeah seeing how I wasn't even on today...

GLoRyKnoT2537d ago

The consumer will indeed buy it regardless.

As for camper's and other ways of play that ppl complain about, before you "freak out" on some kid playing "his way" just remember one simple quote: "All's fair in love and war."

Cheaters/glitchers should all be put down. literally

nolifeking2537d ago

Why should cheaters and glitchers be put down when "All,s fair in love and war." Seems to be a bit of a double standard, no?

Only the BF fanboys care about what's going on with COD.

Neckbear2537d ago

Ah, false dichotomy...we meet again.

miDnIghtEr2536d ago

Well I can tell you this. My experience surfing video game sites and message boards shows a majority of BF fans ripping on COD non stop about how much better BF is going to be and how much the same COD will be.

And I don't see the COD fanboys saying how sucky BF is going to be or whatnot. I've seen most COD fanboys say they'll be buying BF first to play it, and then it's off to COD in a couple weeks once that comes out.

But everywhere right now is BF fanboys saying how much better BF is going to be. Just like they did last time.

Get BF for the PC if you want the real version of BF. Not the gimped console version.

To the Average joe, it's Microsoft and Sony that make games for their consoles and not IW and Activision. They don't visit gaming sites. They just know about games that get considerable advertising space on TV's, billboards etc.

That's the problem with entertainment industries. Great art can get largely ignored because the creaters couldn't "out-advertise" the bigger companies.
