This is How Many People Are Already Playing Modern Warfare 3

Kotaku: Here's a snapshot of what Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 looked like four hours before the game officially hit the U.S.

The story is too old to be commented.

Could be correct since analysts predict there are as much as nine millions players who already pre-ordered the game.

I was on at 00:40 and there were not that many people on. It was neat to see the map get brighter as the night went on.

WOW!! Love it or hate it, that is an impressive feat.

One thing I do like about this is that it popularises 'traditional' gaming beyond the usual Wii-fare, and it is quite a sight watching a News Headline on a major news channel about Call of Duty, a first person shooter! If this had happened for the likes of Quake 3, I would have needed a triple bypass.

It kind of warms the cockles of my sad nerdy heart a little that this gaming past-time, which used to be a very niche affair of a few gamers playing Golden Axe on their Sega Mega Drive unknown to the world, is now a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment medium. Truly we are legion (The last paragraph has now rendered it impossible for me to ever get laid).

Yeah I get the same feeling.
and even though I won't partake in MW3 this year I can rest easy knowing that there are MILLIONS of casual gamers, and millions more family, relatives and non gamers being exposed to the hype surrounding a traditional video game.

(although this kind of does prove that COD is a casual game)

jeseth2115d ago

I agree and disagree.

COD can be as casual or serious as you want it to be.

Haters are gonna hate. MW3 FTW!!!!!

Pixel_Enemy2115d ago

I gladly hate MW3. I loved all of the other CODs till I realized it was the same game year after year. I am saving my money till a real NEW COD comes out. Maybe on a new engine perhaps.

Cosmo8112115d ago

So if the engine isn't new then it's not a new game?

SuperStrokey11232114d ago

Jesus, Iroquois, you must not see very many new games then... pretty much nothing since 2007

Heartnet2114d ago

The only difference between sequels is graphics anyway if u really thought about it

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will always remain the BEST Call of Duty for me. Period. It brought fresh new gameplay elements that kept me coming back for more. It was and still will be an awesome game. Plus the PC version had dedicated servers.

Heartnet2114d ago

wow didnt know that..

Jeez u people need to stop posting the same line on every article... Nobody cares!

LoLZoRz2114d ago

so, if CoD4 is the last good CoD, yet all CoDs in front of 4 are the same/very similar, people are saying that they all suck, how?

if CoD4 is good then CoD4 = WaW, MW2, Blops, MW3.

yes, they're not changed much, but still, they should be good at least.

fail logiz of haters is fail.

inb4 they're all the same, but if they're the same they should be good.
