Today, November 8th 2011, Modern Warfare 3 hit the stands and now Activision has released that Modern Warfare 3 has received the largest day-one shipments in the gaming history.
How is this even news,cause i already knew there gonna make a call of duty for 2012,2013,2014,2015 so i guess i can write 4 articles about it!!!!1
Is anybody surprised lol. If you were publishing COD this is business 101 a year before the new one is done. Unfortunate really, because it would be nice to see what COD could really be with a little innovation an tech. Oh well COD 4 was greatness everything else after was just sameness, still fun though.
Well it could be going the way of three developers working on their own CODs (that if the rumours are true). This could be a promising prospect because what is the likelihood of a full team at sledge hammer working with a full team at infinity.I suspect the only reason for the two to be working together on this one is because of the fiasco with people getting fired.
You do realize treyarch is also COD dev an there well into development. This is not a promising prospect is the same ordeal over an over little mechanic here some new tweaks there wala new COD. It's sad because there fun but do you have any idea what a new engine, development time, and innovation could do for this franchise?
@HOLLOWTIPZ That's what i and many other people have been saying all along. If i criticize COD its not because i hate it or want to see it fail on the contrary i just want to see it improve that's all but even saying that your aromatically labeled a hater by the COD community.
Don't really need news about a new COD confirmed for next year I am sure every gamer out there who plays the game knows it comes out every year. Don't know what else they can do with the franchise WW2 has been done Vietnam has been done and Modern times have been done.
How about a shooter based in the future, like say, in 2142? I'm sure something like that hasn't been done before.
WW1 was pretty boring. It was basically some dudes in trenches and using ancient rifles because most of Europe hadn't been in a major war since the Napoleonic wars.
"Modern Warfare 3 Receives Most Day-One Shipments" Doesn't mean people will buy ever copy of those shipments.... #nuffsaid #battlefield3HasSlightlyHurtM W3
Of course people are buying them, was there ever any doubt MW3 would sell 20+ million? Battlefield 3 took NOTHING away from the COD pie. Wishful thinking to a game that couldn't even beat MW3 in Metacritic scores. I have a feeling there will be 3 COD games with more people on them then BF3 next month. MW3, MW2 and Black Ops.
You should say this to your beloved EA/DICE, shipped 10 million copies but 'estimates' is 5 million sold while VGcharts says only about 3.5 million in first week. MW3 preorders is 9 million, so probably that 10 million BF3 shipment translates to MW3 one day sales, note, sales not ship. BF3 does not pose a challenge to MW3, it even lost out to COD BOP and COD MW2.
Black Ops 2? I think there was some story on it earlier this year. Two year dev time is fine for these games, to those complaining...DON'T BUY IT! Pretty simple really. I actually prefer the Modern Warfare games as opposed to the Tryarch ones, but I buy them all. I also buy Madden and Assassins Creed yearly, I don't see any hate on AC, yet it's yearly. People just love to hate, love to have even more because COD is so popular, sells better then everything else and also gets fantastic reviews.
JUST ANNOUNCED Activision will be changing their name to CALL OF DUTY PUBLISHER.
MW3 9 million units shipped, 20 million units sold.
Wow I'm surprised B.K. announce this on MW3 release date.Yes I could have seen this coming probably after tha official numbers come out but only after 20 hours on tha market is insane. I'm not an CoD hater or anything but this statement alone shows they dont care about quality.I'm sure Call of Duty:Blacks Ops 2 will also break records. My biggest question is what does this parents think about buying tha same game year after year.CoD must be like an addiction too these kids.....
Im am so sick and tired of ppl talking about sales numbers I mean in that case then angry birds is the best game ever created because half a billion ppl bought that one so I guess no game can beat angry birds.
Now I fully understand why people hate COD so much but from Activisions viewpoint its just business since it continues to sell well. Why would they innovate if they keep selling? It sucks because COD is part of the reason creativity seems to stagnate within the gaming industry but..
Activision isn't the only publisher stagnating the industry. I blame both Microsoft and Sony for prolonging this generation, when in hindsight, it's clearly a stop gap to the next. It's affected every aspect of gaming including the PC. Did you know, the longest period of time between a successful product and its predecessor is 6 years? Sony once PS2-2000/PS3-2006, Nintendo twice NES-1985/SNES-1991, Wii-2006/WiiU-2012, and I'll include the Odyssey-1972/OdysseyII-1978 too since it was marginally profitable. The only time a manufacturer waited past the 6 year mark was Atari who in 1993 launched the Jaguar after an eleven year span (5200 debuted in 1982). It went on to sell just 125,000 units and obviously was an unmitigated disaster and bankrupted the company. So it makes NO sense for a 3rd party publisher to spend millions on a new engine to run on ancient hardware. Look at the problems Dice and EA have had trying to implement a new engine that's really designed to function properly on next gen hardware. They spent so much time optimizing framerates with resolution, downsizing assets to squeeze it all on outdated systems that the beta and game quite frankly suffered as a result. BF3 should've never appeared on current systems; rather they should've focused on PC and then released it as a nXbox1080/PS4 launch title in 2013. Hopefully, we'll get new consoles next year (WiiU & 1080) in fall of 2012, and a PS4 in March 2013. Then all these peoples' arguments about CODs rehashing the same engine over & over will finally hold some water.
If only the critics wouldn't be so nice to COD then maybe Activision would get their thumbs out their asses and build a new game engine.
You know? if treyarch would put vehicles back into their games (Call of Duty: United Offensive and Call of duty 3), The shit would be awesome again. COD with huge maps was pretty damn fun with the WW2 setting. Especially on United Offensive! Wish people still played that game on the PC, because I'd still play it :/ I'm not really a COD fan anymore. And wont be until they bring something good to the table (like United Offensive) and really one up the competition :P I know I'll get bashed for that, but oh well. That's what happens on N4G... Just stating an opinion!
ow I'm surprised.
