Notorious Wedbush analyst Michael Patcher believes that Modern Warfare 3, Activision’s forthcoming major entry in the Call of Duty franchise, will outsell Treyarch’s billion-dollar cold-war shooter, Black Ops.
Ya don't say.
I might buy it cuz I wanna compare it to Battlefield 3. Then go back to my favorite. Whichever that may be. I am getting CoD for console though as they have ruined PC support in last game. I care nothing for SP crap, but I might give it a whirl. I might wait until its 20-30 bucks.
single player crap? no way
Not saying SP is crap in that game. I just mean in general. Most FPS games I play its same old same old story. Don't care much for it anymore after years of seeing it.
Thank you Captain Obvious
Next thing they tell us is that MW3 will be played mostly by children Second try as per Rainbow-Dash's suggestion: Next thing they tell you is that "Future MW3 DLC could involve previous MW game maps and cost over $5"
But the thing is....it's not....so your point is invalid. I'm not saying children don't play it, they do, and they shouldn't. But to say that the majority of players who play Call of Duty are children is nothing short of idiotic. Try again my friend. Edit as per egidem's response: Much Better, that is the absolute truth ^.^
Next thing he (pachter) will say is that BF3 is the main rival for MW3. lol
water wet now stop making stupid obvious prediction to make yourself look smart.
Whatever would the games industry be without him, eh? Smartest man alive... Yes, even surpassing the almighty Chuck Norris & this article proves it! /s
I like how he "predicted" Vita's price to be $400. Hopefully he's "over predicting" now too xD
I don't think I've ever seen this guy make an actual "prediction". He just spews out the bleeding obvious, and expects people to be wow-ed. Seriously, this is the guy who "predicted" Duke Nukem Forever won't sell well...A MONTH AFTER THE GAME WAS RELEASED.
Wow! look at that thumbnail...made me lol because activision thinks it's like their saving grace or something. "MW3 haz 60fps! so it haz 2 be way better than every shoot3r released j00d!"- Typical COD fangirl. EDIT:Looks like the guy changed the thumbnail...here is what it was..
Lol, I didn't change anything, I think it's the mods! Thought it's hilarious :P
Oh it was the mods. That sucks because the picture is great. "Smooth 60fps" lol.
consolez don't hate just because you suck at COD. We both know you get pwned and never got a 30 to 1 kill to death ratio in a match but since some people can you feel the need to insult it. Oh, those other games require more skill huh?....LOL
Battlefield 3 is the only thing stopping this. There is a reason BF3 will release before MW3 ;) If battlefield delivers then activision and the cod franchise has something to worry about and battlefield 3 could be the start of the end for cod. I know many many people that are going to choose from one and after seeing the bf3 trailer and the earthquake at the end they will definitely give bf3 a chance and convert. Personally I want both since I am a sucker for shooters and these 2 games are definitely going to give me endless hours of fun :D
Battlefield is going to have screen tearing as usual.
Call of Duty is going to have screen tearing as usual. *FIXED*
I wonder how many COD games it will take for people to quit buying into the hype, and stop buying these 'average' shooter games...
thank you. i dont have cod nor do i want it but i always wondering why everytime something is mentioned about cod more people jump on the hype train. its gonna be the same old thing guys. and then after the first thing you will all say. it that it sucks, its the same, there are too many glitches etc etc. the same thing as the last few cod titles.
im gonna get CoD now.
what people don't seem to get is when both activision and ea are willing to spend 100 plus million on advertisement alone both will do quite well which means neither will really take the lead. Go head tell me or name me one year where COD came out at the same time as another FPS which was on ps3,xbox360 and pc? Us hardcore guys will know inside out on which we will get but the casuals who are watching their fav tv show or wrestling when they see advertisement showing tanks,planes and buildings blowing up they automatically assume its the best thing out there. when a game like home front with its 4 hrs story and its decent MP can do over a million within weeks because of advertisement and when MEDAL OF HONOR can do 5 plus million with advertisement BF3 will do a lot more. I think both games will do 10 plus million for sure if both are received well by critics and lifetimes sales for both will be something like this. COD....16-18 million BF3....14-6 maybe 17 million which means both games will be successful for each publisher and next year EA will have medal of honor all ready to go against the next COD game and this cycle will go on till both stop selling when i see on craiglist systems for sale all system include COD and Madden those are the 2 games casuals buy each year for sure and this year we can add BF3 on that list
Thanks Patcher for letting use know what we already knew.
key word "could"
I certainly won't be the 20,000,001 customer.
I will buy, looking forward to playing through the single player mode. I'm not going to sit here and bash the hell outta the series and turn around and buy it, because i'm convinced that's what you guys are doing, at least 8/10 are full of crap and scared to get a bubble taken if they say they enjoy it. I will say this however..for the love of god please make it run right on my ps3 the first day of release (edited because it's 2am and I'm exhausted and its made no sense at first)
to me in my opinion cod is cod(greed) nothing else no matter how you cut it.
Sadly yes, it probably will. When will the masses finally get tired of this regurgitated nonsense?
the next day 10 million gamers, trade this game in
and then rebuy it and sell it (repeat hundreds of times) gotta love the cod trend
yeah it will also promote terrorism and still no one is gonna care oh well good thing there are real games coming out this year, maybe people will realize that call of duty looks like it still lives in 2007 and they should buy a game that the dev team actually cared for and took time with the game
Why can't people realize that if they think CoD is a decent game they'd just have to play Gears of war 3, Uncharted 3 or Battlefield 3 and there life would be forever complete.
It had better do because B(ody)O(dor) was a pile of crap.
I think it does better then 20 million. I will say around 23-25 million. The IW COD games are usually much better received. MW3 scored a 96 on Metacritic and sold well over 20 million, so I expect much the same this time around. Cant wait for some MW3! Hope I get into the Elite beta as well, really looking forward to buying that when it comes out to complete my COD experience.
