Glitchers Brought in to Test Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer

A group of Call of Duty glitchers has been called back to Infinity Ward to help the studio test and shore up the game's multiplayer, according to the gang's leader.

The story is too old to be commented.

*"This time, Infinity Ward is keeping us there an entire week so we can find more bugs and glitches than ever before!"

Looks like someone is scared of BF3 if they don't sort out their glitches.

@clizz care to read the top portion of my comment and you'll understand.

WOW, so actually trying to improve their product is being scared of the competition?

Where can I get a can of that LogicBeGone?

"WOW, so actually trying to improve their product is being scared of the competition?"

Yes.

The last few Call of Duty games have been infamous for being plagued with game-breaking bugs.

creatchee2264d ago

Quality assurance =/= fear of competition.

P.S. I guarantee you that Activision is not afraid of Battlefield 3.

SilentNegotiator2264d ago

This is just marketing to address concern about past neglect. I doubt MW3 will be any different.

fear882264d ago

The fact that they are doing this after MW2 and BO gives me the feeling that they never intended to do any QA for those games unless they were put on the spot by a competitor. I feel that if it was not for BF3 it would have been another rushed product with no QA.

This is BS
we all know IW is not working on the MP this time
raven software is

People complain when they "don't put effort" into COD games and call them annual shoverlware with new skins.

Then when they spend more time to take care of the things these same people are complaining about, they say they are scared of the competition.

Hilarious. What a bunch of tools.

As for COD, as much as we don't want to admit it...COD has NO competition. MW3 will sell 8-10 million copies each on PS3/360. BF3 will be lucky to sell 4 million or better combined.

COD is a household name, its like Mario or Halo...it just sells.

geth1gh2263d ago

thats what happens when you use the same engine and 90% of the same game since cod4.

until they actually get original again, there will always be mass glitching.

zeeshan2263d ago

LOL! They must be having a field day! :D

Washington-Capitals2263d ago

Anyone who think activision is scared of EA and BF3 is just plain silly. Sure they know they will have a tougher time earning the gamer dollar but they have such a huge install base on consoles the game will easily outsell BF3.

Let me put it this way,
MW2 Sales (ps3 + 360) - 21 million
Black Ops (ps3 + 360) - 22 million

Bad Company 1 + 2 total sales on ps3 AND xbox is < 7 million.

Might i add MW2 and Blackops are still the most popular online games on both PSN and XBL.

And NO im not saying one game is better then other. Just saying no one is scared of anyone.

slapedurmomsace2263d ago

I certainly wouldn't say they're scared, but quality control is certainly an issue and ignoring the problem will eventually lead to their down fall. It happened with Mortal Kombat, it happened with Nintendo, and compared to the PS2 it could be the beginning of it happening with the PS3. It was happening to Madden vs the 2k series til EA bought out the exclusivity. If a product becomes riddled with bugs or just plain stale, it will eventually fail, always has, always will.

WOW they are going all out for MW3.

they even brought in the pros to make sure that MW3 has the SAME AMOUNT of glitches as MW2.

I wonder who they will bring in for the Lag test? Maybe the first house that is closest to the studio.

"if it can lag next door then it can lag 300 miles away"

save your self the trouble and just ask gamers to pencil in a 3 on their MW2 boxes and pretend the game is new.

xX TriiCKy Xx2264d ago

I'm not sure you'd be able to see a pencil mark. Maybe a black Sharpie?

MidnytRain2264d ago

"save your self the trouble and just ask gamers to pencil in a 3 on their MW2 boxes and pretend the game is new."

lol...

"if it can lag next door then it can lag 300 miles away"

Lol!

RickHiggity2264d ago

Or a green sharpie to keep up with the theme

blumatt2264d ago

LMFAO hahaha So true. I mean yeah, it's good they're trying to fix the glitches now, but to be honest, glitches are still probably gonna be there either way. And so will the completely unbalanced multiplayer component from MW2.

Why even mention Battlefield, troll? Trying to start a flame war? Grow up

f7897902264d ago

It's relevant. Activision is trying harder now that there is competition that will be going head to head with them.

Heartnet2264d ago

@f789790

no BBF3 had nothiong to do with this article.. they arnt testing game cause there scared otehrwise why werent they scared for BBF2? are you implying thats a bad game.. it was but w/e...

trancefreak2264d ago

I bet u these guys are certified glitchers. They will leave a hole or 2 for future lulz.

Just playin but this is a start towards improvement.

DirtyLary2264d ago

Of course they wont tell em everything. Pretty much giving these guys a headstart on the their glitch booster for when the game goes live.

killerhog2264d ago

whats funny too, is that cod Waw and Mw2 are bug filled like theres no effing tomorrow and they had 2 or 3 days so now with an additional 4 extra days lets see if these "pro glitchers" can help them.

fullymoated2264d ago

Once again battlefield HAS to be mentioned in the first comment of a CoD article. I thought the BF3 fanbase was supposed to be mature? You BF3 fanboys have become more childish than the CoD kiddies.

Gray-Fox-Type02263d ago

More like EA is scared of MW3...

Still worse than an open beta...

JeffGUNZ2264d ago

Yeah, I don't understand why they don't have a 2-3 week open beta. It helps polish and makes amazing from day one.

DoctorXpro2263d ago

"Still worse than an open beta..." -damn right

I payed for Black Ops (360-all maps paks/PS3/PC)

And I cant play MW3 beta

And those fucking retarded hackers and glitchers can play before, bravo.

Black Ops is my last fucking cod

xX-StolenSoul-Xx2264d ago

Though i'm really looking forward to Battlefield 3, i may just pick this one up for it's Spec ops and Story :)

I just hope this game has some sort of demo. Black ops had a demo like 4 months after the game was released. LAME! I would have not bought the game if i known how terrible it was.

Ricardoportillo042264d ago

that was their plan my friend

Bonobo123452264d ago

That's why they don't have a beta, because having one means it delays the games release, because there will most certainly be a lot of bugs.

They advertise is as the dogs bollocks and people throw their money at them, unaware of the sneaky tactics they use.

Black ops is my biggest regret this year.
I should have bought two or three bottles of 30 yr Glenfiddich and had a party.....

Fuck you treyarch, fuck you.......

bwazy2264d ago

Man they're really herpin the derp on this one.

OMEGAXS12264d ago (Edited 2264d ago )

This **** was funny cause um, wtf does herping the derp mean?

nevermind. nice. got it.

Kee2264d ago

If anyone can find them, I guess they can. CoD4 and MW2 were very glitchy.

Canucks232263d ago

Thing is i remember reading about them doing this exact same thing for mw2... sure looked like it helped.

Kee2263d ago

I gotta be completely honest here... Some of them were really really obvious and could be done simply by using the game's climbing mechanic. They try their best to get rid of them, but they always creep in somewhere because someone has done a half-assed testing job.
