PS3 owners shun Modern Warfare 3 pre-orders

Xbox 360 owners might be looking at less killer exclusive games for the Xbox 360 (beyond Kinect and sequels), but in terms of pre-ordering Activision's forthcoming action packed first person shooter Modern Warfare 3, are putting down the cash in their droves. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This isn't really surprising, after MW2 had all the online issues on PS3
fluffydelusions  +   1163d ago
MW2 at least played online, Blops is an utter mess. And really this has nothing to do with that. FPS always sell better on 360. Battlefield 3 is another example. 360 has more than 2x the preorders.

I don't give a f*** why there aren't many MW3 pre-orders from the PS3 crowd but come the f*** on!!! Pre-order the crap out of Uncharted 3 people! And if you can't pre-order it then make sure that you buy this gem of a game!

U3 looks gorgeous! It's Naughty Dogs we are talking about... they can't fail!!!!!!!!!!!!

I urge my PS3 brotherhood to either support games like Uncharted or stop asking for brilliant exclusives from Sony's first party studios! If you can't support brilliant devs and their efforts, better stick your nose to crappy CODS!

Hopefully, by the time we get close to Uncharted 3 release date, we'll see major improvement there! :)

I think Naughty Dog needs to apply some of that talent on racer or some other genre. It will sell like hotcakes on the PS3!

After all, GT5 (both of them) and MGS4 sold insane amounts.

Then again, Infamous 2 was a little of a let down so Sony ended up bundling it now.

"MW2 at least played online, Blops is an utter mess."

I think you have that backwards. I've never seen the cheating in BLOPS that I saw in MW2. MW2 at one point was unplayable with people changing your custom loadout names to resetting levels to 1, people flying, etc, it goes on and on.

I've played a lot of BLOPS lately and have not had any problems other than host migrations.
Ravens20  +   1163d ago
MW2 was the WORST COD game to date. From the killstreaks, to the amount of spots people would camp from due to how shit the maps are,to the OP weapons, it was just a frustrating game and not fun at all.

Definitely NOT going to buy this garbage until it hits 30 or less

you people here on N4G are very funny, so the 99% of articles msxbox world puts out you guys quickly label as fanboy/troll/stupid yet something about mw3 hate its clearly something that is reputable right? WOW!

This website has NO SOURCES, and i can bet my balls that MW3 sales on PS3 will be very close to that on the Xbox, just like Black Ops sold very close to the xbox version on the PS3. And it will be the best selling game on the system this year too. Please dont be soo foolish, a lot of you think its fashionable to hate on MW3 because you think comment agrees mean something. You have no basis to hate on MW3 since none of you have played it and if you are basing it on past history, then how come on R3 articles people are saying its an good FPS (which i would somewhat agree having played the beta), if i based it on R2, i would say R3 would be "shit" cause thats what R2 was to me. Haters gonna hate.
Ares84  +   1163d ago
Well, I got tired of buying expansions of COD4 at full retail price every year. There is absolutely nothing new or advanced in MW3 that we didn't see in previous COD games. Online is shit, full of cheaters and 12year old kids who constantly question your sexuality and are extremely racist. So no, I don't want that garbage anymore.

I'm getting the superior FPS that is Battlefield 3.

@Washington-Capitals

If you didn't notice most articles coming from msxbox world is flamebait and always have to do with bashing the PS3 some way. That's their thing.

Virus201  +   1163d ago
@zeeshan Idk about pre ordering Uncharted 3. I would probably just rent it off of gamefly for the singleplayer. I never really got into the multiplayer (although the beat was great), because I found no replay value in UC2 and UC1. Those games were great but I after I completed the singleplayer they just collected dust. That's one thing I look for when buying a game (replay value), and I didn't find that with those games..... Same with Killzone 3

I'm probably gonna get a lot of hate for this, but I did not enjoy Uncharted 3 beta at all online.

The shooting mechanics and game elements did not appeal to me.

Didn't expect that sort of statement from you gamingdroid. Popular games get bundles, or games that are paid from a third-party to encourage the sales of their game (Kung Fu Panda). But, most often, it's the popular games that they think will help sell the hardware.

snipes101  +   1163d ago
I find it funny that COD gets bashed for being the same every year when, besides some graphical leap that I could care less about, BF doesn't exactly revolutionize its brand with each new release either ( http://www.gamesradar.com/x... < don't believe me? Read the preview).

All of these flame wars are simply idiotic. Just play your game and shut the hell up. I'll be buying and enjoying both because, well, I like to play my games, not argue about them all the time (sometimes it's kind of fun to though :).
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1163d ago
Infamous 2 a let down 'cause Sony bundled it? Just like Halo 3. Right? Seriously, people make the most stupid excuses to hate...

Sony is trying to make it one of it's flagship franchises, this has nothing to do with how well or badly InFamous 2 has sold. Look at Uncharted, Motorstorm, Killzone and Resistance bundles in the past, al those games sold within Sony exclusives standard, just because it didn't made COD, Halo or Gears numbers it doesn't mean Sony was disappointed at it's first party studios. For every Halo that sells 10 million, Sony had at least 6 exclusives that were million sellers, it's obviously a different business strategy.
dougr  +   1163d ago
I'm sorry, I appreciate getting good exclusive games for the ps3, but I cannot justify spending $60 on a linear story game like Uncharted. I loved Uncharted 2, but unless you like the multiplayer, which I do not, then it is a renter game because it can be beaten within a few days. There is no replay value for me with the uncharted series to justify buying the game.

@dougr
Uncharted has pretty good replay value if you actually enjoy it.
I've played the games 4 or 5 times each. It's just fun.
If find it easier to go back and replay these type of games.

Besides, Uncharted isn't the most linear game out there. You're bashing plenty of great linear games from the past. Linear games outnumber open-world games and they're some of the best games ever made.

Why don't you just stick open-world/RPGs?
SephirothX21  +   1162d ago

I might buy mw3, but I am definitely buying battlefield 3. (ive already pre-ordered it).
Mw3 is still a 50/50, I think most people have seen how bad the support for mw2 was. Black ops has been supported really well, but they've taken all the fun out of that game. It far better than mw2 but its just boring.
Virus201  +   1163d ago

@Virus201,

Lol you havent played black ops long enough. As with most games it can be frustrating but black ops is no fun after a while. Mw2 you could get spammed with the cheapest tactics but you could do the same back. Mw2 was not a good game by any means, due to it being soo over the top it was fun..Black ops is sort of lackluster. Its a shame because treyarch have seriously supported that game, there was 1 known hack for auto aim where it instantly locks onto another players head and that got patched 48 hours after it was out.
davekaos  +   1163d ago
I'm glad ps3 owners are doing this. After the last 2 COD's its about time we stop showing support to activision and start showing support for EA.

Seriously guys i can understand the love for COD but once you play BF and get used to the mechanics you will soon realise that COD under par when it comes to online shooters especially on the ps3.

You mean support the company that:

a) introduced online pass to the industry

b) deletes your digital games purchased and your entire account if you are inactive on Origin

c) prevents you from accesing your games on Origin if you get banned from any of EA's site

d) has utter nasty DRM, remember Spore and number of times you could install a game. Heck, this was true of what is now Origin a short while back

.. and to those who hate Activision

e) EA essentially introduced annual game releases

f) and also cut out competing sports game brands with their exclusive deals

Out from the lions den right into the dragons lair!

He's probably swept up in the Battlefield hysteria. Also he probably loves EA because they brought Mass Effect to the PS3. Which isn't bad or anything, but considering ever since being bought by EA Bioware has gone down hill, I would have preferred if they just stayed independent.

@ John, the deal with sony and EA for mass effect did not affect me at all as i had the game on PC, and for BF3 hysteria then yes i am swept up but thats all because.
1: i played BF2 like no tomorrow and lets not forget BFBC2 and BF2 are 2 completely different games
2: i was in the alpha so i know first hand just how good the game is and can honestly say the alpha was better than any cod game i have ever played

Huh. Look at that. Another PS3 article from msxbox-world. They should consider changing their name.

Anyway, we won't go into the logic of writing articles based on VGChartz guesses, that's been done to death, but I would like to briefly touch on something they mentioned at the end of the article.

"We already reported on the differences between Xbox and PS3 consumers pre-ordering habits"

Bingo. And yet people are still writing articles about it. Pre-ordering games is predominantly a US phenomena and guess what? The majority of 360's sold worldwide are sold in the US. PS3 games sell just fine, and seem to be able to move games that normally wouldn't move on the Xbox, yet the media is constantly bombarding us with articles bemoaning PS3 pre-order numbers like the harbingers of doom they are.

Enough already. We know COD will sell more on the 360. Same with Battlefield. They're shooters. Shooters always sell better on the 360. That's not news. We also know that Uncharted 3 will sell just fine, so you can stop wringing your hands about Uncharted pre-order figures like no one is going to buy it.

The fact that you're mining VGChartz for pre-order guesses to bash the PS3 speaks volumes.

To be fair, on a worldwide basis, other than Japan/US, both MS and Sony are pretty even in market share.

The_Con-Sept  +   1162d ago
That is perfectly fine by me. I have not bought a CoD game since 4MW. Every new game IW makes for CoD is just a rehash of COD4. I also have not bought any BF game since BF2:MC for PS2. Those two were awesome games. Now they all just suck to me. I went back to Counter Strike and BF1942 on PC because console FPS is for aim assist noobs. Its not that hard to play with a keyboard and mouse.

As for Uncharted 3. I will definitely play it over anything else this year besides LBP2.

showtimefolks  +   1162d ago
i think we can all agree on one thing
shooters on xbox360 sell better its a shooters console and not saying psn isn't because COD sell in millions on both consoles but MW2 on ps3 was unplayable so i have my doubt before pre ordering

if its really good i will buy it off craiglist for 40 and not give my money to activision

ps3 has few big exclusives launching in fall along with the fact throughout the year there were quite a few exclusives so money get's split into other games too

for example:

i much rather spend my 60 on rage which is something new or buy saints row 3 which will be a lot of fun than just buy another COD with different skins and same MP for 60.

so if ps3 gamers think before they pre order smart for them there are other games besides COD and BF3 that are coming out this fall like batman 2,rage,skyrim,saints row 3,mgs hd collection

all 5 of those are coming out on xbox360 and ps3 plus more so enjoy something other than shooters some times

I sort of feel that's not the main reason. Never really had many of those issues myself, except for the no dedicated servers issues. I think it's more about the mainstream audience, who don't look into other, less known shooters are more likey on 360. Not implying anything about 360 users, or the 360 console. Great console. Great people, but I think that the PS3 version of MW3 will be more hurt by competition than its 360 counterpart, and that doesn't have that much to do with exclusives.

I think Blackops sold more on PS3 through Europe than 360. It's just that the pre-orders reflect the consoles sold in NA. Should not really come as a surprise.More consoles = more pre-orders.

@TheXtreme: If you look at fluffydelusions link it seems more people on the 360 have pre ordered Battlefield 3 more on that console. Plus FPS are more popular on the 360 anyway. It;s looking like it will sell more on the 360 then the PS3 despite DICE supporting the PS3 version more.

I wouldn't say shun so much as not interested. There's no massive conspiracy here. PS3 owners don't flock together and decide to boycott a title. Now if this were the Wii, I'd be happy if gamers were boycotting Nintendo 'til Xenoblade comes out.

Yes, because BF3 is pushing the FPS genre into the future as we know it. What new things is it bringing to the table? No, I'm not talking about the stupid engine (I'm so sick of hearing about Frostbite 2 I think I'm going to vomit). Even this preview at Gamesradar ( http://www.gamesradar.com/x... says that it is simply more battlefield. Is there anything wrong with that? No, I'll be buying and enjoying both. What I am saying is that all of this bashing on Modern Warfare is mental because neither of the games are revolutionizing their respective brands, they're going with what has consistently worked for them in the past.

@snipes101

Not so much new things to the table as bringing back things that people miss. Like, for instance teamwork. Which is pretty much non existent on any COD ever made.
snipes101  +   1162d ago
Look at a large percentage of the posters here "COD is boring because it is the same thing every year," that is mostly what I see. I see very few (comparably) saying what you are. BF is not "bringing back" teamwork either, it's always been a part of the BF games. There has never not been an option to play a battlefield game. So, again, there's nothing new that BF is bringing to the table because it has been bringing the team work side of shooters to the table for years.
YogiBear  +   1162d ago
@ snipes101

I understand and acknowledge your argument but a large group of COD players have a connection to the game you or myself don't. Which is COD in some form or other was their first great game. That's all they know. EA is introducing it like that because it would be something "new" to them.

He's using caps to make a point weazel. That point being that some of the sony crowd acting all high and mighty claiming their console is something like the avant guarde of consoles where taste is concerned are part of the same statistic Xbox360 is, where COD reigns supreme.

Can't really defend the "LOOOOOOL" part much but the rest is pretty obvious where message is concerned.

@Dread

And you have conveniently forgotten that this whole article is about the big differences in pre-order habits, and that Goeres could have simply been commenting on that difference.

But, I see that didn't stop you or ape from jumping to the conclusion that he's talking about sales rather than pre-orders, and using that as an excuse to jump into some irrelevant ramblings about "Sony fanatics."

Kind of ironic that everyone jumping on him for his comment are so blinded by their need to rail against PS3 fans that they overlook the fact that the guy could have simply been refering to THE DIFFERENCES POINTED OUT IN THE ARTICLE.

In what way are the different?

If you mean different in that 360 owners play more shooters and PS3 owners play a wide variety of games then your wrong.

Guess whats the top played games on PSN?

Also guess what genre has more Sony exclusives?

You're correct.
The irony is FPS games on the PS3 are played just as much as on the XBOX360.
Most of the top anticipated games on the PS3 upcoming are shooters. Exclusive or multi-platform.
FPS and 3rd person shooters are just the most popular genre this generation on all platforms.
Just take a look on PSN and XBL for the proof.

The majority of the PS3 crowd are older, hence why there is alot less kids online compared to xbox live. I can't remember the exact range, but the majority of ps3 users were said to be 18+ and xbox users between 13 - 16

i was a kid and i was playing core games all the time, perfect dark, ge007, turok 2, zelda oot , mgs, resi, mario 64, crazy taxi, mgs2, gta 3, burnout etc........

tell me what the problem for a teen to play videogames? explain?

tell me what u were playing when u were kid\teen?

and one thing, u sayin that ps3 is more mature than 360 and for TRUE HARDCORE ADULTS YEAHHHHHH

LoOoOoOoL, the best sony system ever is the playstation 2, ps2 appealed for everyone and got tons of games, that's why it's the best

all u can do is dislike cause u can't argue with LOGIC

I never said it was a problem, but there's a difference between when I was a kid and the kids now. Kid's now are assholes, all they do is swear and say they are better than you and fuck around. Kid's are so different now.
maniacmayhem  +   1163d ago
@myk

Wrong, the reason there's a lot less kids online that you can HEAR is because the ps3 does not come with a headset like the 360 does.

Trust me i have heard the same racist/singing and constant chatter i hear on live on ps3.
DtotheRoc  +   1163d ago
@ape007 you had a nintendo 64, we all did at about 16 but you don't do any online gaming back then. it's not lik eyou were playing counterstrike unless you were in college back in the day. i, for one, hate children online. you can play mario and zelda and goldeneye why the heck not; they're fantastic games BUT the line needs to be drawn for online communities to protect the children and keep the kiddies on consoles from annoying us adults. i was 19 when i first got online and so were most of my friends when i was PC guy i went to console and that diminished instantly. here's what i don't understand, you have to be 18 or older, aka considered a legal adult, to buy or rent mature content games such as call of duty but i have seen kids online talk smack when they're 15 ro 16 and just are ignorant, annoying, spoiled fuckin brats. i'm all fine with you playing games on your own time but not when you didn't work for and pay for the experience we did so i wish all children were blocked form ALL online play of any game with mature content. i hope the california law passes supreme court. yes it's unconstitutional but i dont' care anymore i'm sick of getting my experience trampled by children who don't belong in the adult-side of the industry. one guy on one of these forums came up with an absolutly brilliant idea. he said all consoles and pcs should have age-specific servers to separate the men from the boys entirely. not sure how that would function though but it sounds perfect to me. i'm guessing these would be registered to driver's licenses and security pin codes or something that would be asked to be verified outright every time you log in otherwise it prohibits you from entering into games with ppl of any other ages. even better use the last four of ur SS number or could use tax information. if you're worried abotu ur identities being stolen though they have good services out there for ur protection and then i wanna see network security improved across all platforms. oh jesus i really went there with this one lol. end of super rant.

I know I'm one of those people that are shunning MW3. After the mess of MW2 and clusterf**k that is Black Ops on the PS3, added to lack of innovation, and a boring gameplay mechanic, overpriced game + map packs + 360 superiority, I'm going for Battlefield 3. Plus, I was kicking myself when I picked up Bad Company 2 after Black Ops. I originally planned to buy Bad Company 2 before MW2 but ended up picking up the latter. What a fool I was. :(

If you were on the PS forums basically everyone thought that treyarch would fix all of the problems and black ops would be just as good as COD4. Turns out that black ops is crap.

CanadianTurtle  +   1163d ago
The fact is that even though it will sell more on Xbox, there will still always be people to play on for the PS3. What do people not understand? Sure its going to sell better on the Xbox, but the fact is that a lot of people are also going to buy it on the PS3, just not as much as Xbox.

Either way, its a CoD game, so even on a PS3 you will still have millions of people to play it with online, years to come.

Thats what truly matters folks.

Half of those missing PS3 pre-orders are waiting for Resistance 3.
And after playing the beta I guess it's a wise move for them since they are like the same game now.
Why would you need 2 of the same game?
Kee  +   1163d ago
I like the resistance, but can't see the resemblance to call of duty. (haven't played resistance 3 beta yet but soon will) I'm just saying that from playing 1 and 2, they're very different and cannot be called the same game at all.
TKCMuzzer  +   1163d ago
True. Resistance 3's weapons are far more entertaining though. Watching someone get 'hedgehoged' always makes me chuckle.

I have not pre-ordered it because my money is going elsewhere. With Resistance 3, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3 being released. Fact, when you have more choice you tend to wait and see before you buy.

This is not a fanboy comment. With Gears 3 out as well I'm just not sure Activision will do enough to warrant my money.
Kee  +   1163d ago
I've already pre-ordered it on the PS3. But that was my only option. Then again, the main fan base of CoD games aren't really hardcore enough to put down pre-orders, to be honest. Most just wander into their local supermarket or game shop to buy it a week after it's release.
zoks310  +   1163d ago
Random mom walks into gamestop, as she is checking out at the register she is approached by a GS employee and harassed into taking a preorder for MW3 "the biggest prettiest game ever" if she ever want her precious son to get a copy.
At first she hesitates but eventually her ignorance makes her give in. Multiply that by 60k and you get your MW3 preorder sales for 360, throw in a few dumb PS3 mothers in there if it makes you feel better.

I see more moms in gamestop making preorders than i see gamers making preorders. They just don't know any better, and its fun to watch the GS employees harass a mother into submission.

To be fair to IW, they do deliver a good ps3 game, a few problems here and there no doubt, but nothing compared to Treyarch's game.

I tried to tell you, PS3 owners and 360 owners are very different kinds of people. When you're bitching about casual console CoD kiddies, you're not talking about ps3 owners. You're talking about 360 retards. Oh shit did I say retards? I think I did. Oh well, I'm not sorry.

I shunned it at first but then my friends kept telling me to get it. I'm only gtting it to have something to play with friends. My time is mostly gonna be spent on bf3 with or without friends. Cod is just too boring now with the rinse and repeat.

And PS3 owners should boycott Call of Duty after the mess of a port that was Black ops, and then Activision having the nerve to shut down the servers. Battlefield 3 is being optimized for the PS3. So where u puttin your cash? Into another crappy port with low framerate and smudgy graphics or a game built for the system?
Dart89  +   1163d ago
I agree if i ever wanna play cod i have cod4 the best one this gen.

Plus we ps3 players get another free game along with our purchase of BF3 which makes it an even sweeter deal.

omg one of my friends gave him black ops on ps3, oh my god what a mess

gfx suck, bland, framerate is stuttering

what a shame treyarch,u got millions of cash and u can't make a perfect port, look at IW COD 4

@ape007...Wait, wait, wait. Let me get this straight. So, you're saying that the PS3 version is a shitty port (a mess), I wouldn't know since I played the 360 ver., and you're still wondering why the hate? I mean, if that's the case, ps3 owners have every reason to hate on this game. If I got the ps3 ver., I'd be p***ed as hell.

DtotheRoc  +   1163d ago
yes clearly because you're going with two of the same game. shoudl go one for console and one for pc so that way you get the added features of the pc like admins in lobbies/servers to find the cheaters and ban them as well as moderate the gameplay. imagine how good mw2 would have been with tubes removed entirely and killstreaks turned off? yes that's how i play cod4 and it makes for excellent matches. plus on pc with these dedicated servers you get much larger player counts. i used to play search on crash with round limits of 15 scores an each round was 10 minutes long it was epic plus it would be 12v12 not this 6v6 garbage. so yeah i'll disagree for ur choice to pick up two console versions. shoudl have gone one of each. one with friends and one for an actually decent experience. it's what i do with cods and battlefield games.
detroitmademe  +   1163d ago
im a Ps3 gamer who primarily plays multiplayer games and i wont be getting MW3,imo its technically not a bad game im just getting tired of all multiplayer FPS.In fact the only one im gonna get is BF3& thats because i recently took a chance on bfbc2 due to all of the hype surrounding BF3& the overall gameplay just feels superior 2 any multiplayer fps i've played.Also i think it goes without saying that the PS3's exclusive line-up this year is a factor on multiplat sales.
