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.
Could be correct since analysts predict there are as much as nine millions players who already pre-ordered the game.
9 million 0_o dude that has to be a record lol
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)
I agree and disagree. COD can be as casual or serious as you want it to be.
Haters are gonna hate. MW3 FTW!!!!!
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.
So if the engine isn't new then it's not a new game?
Jesus, Iroquois, you must not see very many new games then... pretty much nothing since 2007
The only difference between sequels is graphics anyway if u really thought about it
last good cod was COD 4
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.
wow didnt know that.. Jeez u people need to stop posting the same line on every article... Nobody cares!
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.
I'll play a little duty for 3 days, then it's on to Skyrim!
lol play a little doodie.
An appropriate reference, depending on who you ask.
The Elite website is Swamped! I cant even register my account, but I did redeem it on PSN. and we can't register our founder cards till after 11/13 ? Did I read that correctly? Why?
theirs 300 people waiting for it at the midnight launch
So sad to see that most of those guys just buy the game to hack the living crap out of it. We all know its going to happen anyways
Im pretty unhappy with MW3 the story was ok and some of the action was pretty good but it seems to be missing something that i cant put my finger on and also seems to be missing things that i really think should be on there e.g AI bots for split screen multiplayer i find this very lame, and also after you beat the game you dont get a cool bonus lvl like the museum lvl from MW2 it just gets you to go to spec ops which i have no interest in. All in all i have been a fan of cod since COD4 but this one i think will be returned :(
I feel the exact same way. I don't "hate it" I just feel as a COD game something is missing and I'm not sure what. The more I play the more I realize what they took out or changed entirely and I'm missing some of the stuff.
MW3 scored higher than BF3. Says it all:)
And Ocarina of Time scored higher than those 2 games. Says it all.
Different genre. Different game. Irrelevant statement.
@aarix It's relevant, because I'm telling him that review scores doesn't mean much in today's time. There's been way too many games coming out with near perfect scores/higher scores that have had insane glitches and issues on hand.
Yet KZ2 scored higher than MW3.
Umm actually BF3 PC is still going to have a bigger score than Modern Warfare 3, not also mentioning that it only has half of reviews done.
mw2 was a glitchfest for 6 months yet it got a 94... reviews mean nothing
Who cares about reviews anyways? Reviewers got money to score the game higher anyways.
