TVGB: "There’s a heck of a lot of DLC in store for Modern Warfare 3. Twenty different pieces, to be exact."
U got to be F****** JOKING!!!
I feel sorry for the people that bought this DLC at full price of 60 bucks. "A fool and his money are soon parted." Let the milk machine begin.
why do you feel sorry for people who paid 60 bucks for a game/franchise they enjoy
You feel sorry for people who have disposable income to spend on frivilous items, such as games? What are you, a commie?
because people like those are ruining the gaming industry. the sheep. so easily herded
This is mostly for Elite subscribers and it's been known for a long while now. And I hope you guys are aware that Uncharted and Gears are doing the same exact thing, in fact, they charge you a base initial fee as an option to "save" on the huge amount of DLC they have lined up This DLC thing gets worse and worse, I find it rather destructive to online communities, especially for Uncharted that doesn't have a huge fanbase online to begin with. CoD on the other hand is a phenomenon and can survive from something like this. Still rather annoying, but at least they shipped with 16 maps, that's a good amount to keep most players busy without the need to buy DLC
its time for the annual bend over. and Activision is enjoying this one. @alpha uncharted 3 for the most part, you can rely on ND to deliver quality products, unlike the shoddy map packs for $15 from activision. Although I'm very disappointed with the character packs being so pricey. Dont get me wrong i loved running around as cole or a helghast in U2, but for $3.99 that was a bit too high.
Someone call 911, there has been a rape. Hide yo kids, Hide ya wife.
the game itself is dlc so what do you expect?
I'll be interested to see how many maps they recycle from MW2
Why stop there, why not recycle outfits, ala, Uncharted. Although of course thats exceptable.
Seeing as those are cosmetics yeah and they dont charge 15 for 4 outfits. Fishy why dont you just continue to bend over seeing as you like it from behind by kotick.
No Uncharted skins are NOT acceptable...when did you become such a fanboy??? You sound sooooo angry. Dont let this place get to you like that.... @fishy (below) I hear you, i really do. But you sound angry lately. Imo, you have been one of the more logical posters at N4G for a while now and IMO it was better that way. I dont know you at all asides from what you write and im just given you my perspective.
MariaHelFutura, Clearly I'm speaking sarcastically when I say its exceptable, it's just that people only seem to care when its COD, when in reality, everyone is trying to do the same.
majiebeast, I dont own MW3 and currently have no plans to buy it, I'm an awesome cool, niche gamer like you bro! F*** those sheep who play what they want rather than caring about the politics of a interent thread.
Just to be clear I also do not own MW3 either and have no plans to purchase it. This year I just see a complete lack of innovation in the title and based on DLC for MW2 where they took maps from MW1, I see the same thing happening here.
I also have Uncharted but have no idea what ND do with their DLC nickel and dime scheme. I also thought what they done with their Fortune Hunters DLC offer before the games was even released was not very acceptable.
I've only ever played the Uncharted titles for their superb single player story.
fishy I haven't bought a cod game since waw which i traded in. The difference with cod games are it is an annual release. Every year they do this.
And so the milking begins...
20 x $15 = $300, that would be funny.
All are included with elite...just sayin.
As long as mw3 keeps the fast pace action and tight controls bring on all the dlc,, and elite is like $40 a year... U can't beat it
WOW, awesome! amazing! I just can't believe it! That's incredible! let me guess, 3 new maps and some new colored dots for the red-dot and ACOG scope? How about some nice rainbow coloured weapon skins and one or two call signs. dlc = milk me hard!
it's funny to see every people in N4G bashing CoD subission... and no body defending CoD... why? beciause they are playing and Enjoying CoD...
It is true. When you have nothing to do the troll part of you gets released.
and I'll still come in here and bash the game. Same game we played in MW2 with new maps. I should have saved my money for Skyrim.
lol, and why you dont wait before buy if you dont like it?
Please explain how. Yes, it's similar but it's a sequel, not a new IP or storyline but there are differences as it plays a bit slower and I haven't raged once in an hour and a half of play which beats my old record of 2 minutes in MW2 so I'm loving it so far
your defending COD. why are you not playing? oohh rigghhtt
Actually I am playing, yes... I actually went and bought (well technically I traded a few games that I had stopped playing and only paid like £15 or so) the dam game! hard to believe I know. However, I will still bash the hell out of it. Their dlc tactics leave nothing to be desired. If you think I am joking, join me. My gamer tag is the same as my username. I play on xbox live. I bought it yesterday morning and by about 7 or 8 in the evening I had ranked up to level 51. It is fun and it is more refined then mw2 and better then blackops but there is still a lot of bullshit that goes on and it's still not as good as Cod4 in my opinion. As for my first comment, I hate to say it, but I would apply it just as well to gears3. In general I hate what dlc has become now.
I'll wait for call of doody 17 !
Because one disc and one payment isn't enough.
People fail to realise is that with companies pushing out this kind of DLC will cause problems for future games. But even if you have the money think logically about it say 25% buy up every piece of DLC and buy up stupid collectors editions like Skyrim with the plastic dragon (its plastic wake the hell up) then what room is there for companies to give us better value? What you people are doing by purchasing this rubbish is saying 'Hey developers and publishers I will happily pay more for less!' Its basically the new Horse Armour from Oblivion! So what's next? Collectors edition that includes a making of dvd a steeltin case for £130? And you know what? Theres those that will buy it just because it says collectors. Also what about if the DLC went up in price? So say 1800 or 2100msp for maps but if you pay £50 a year it works out cheaper theres many thick people out there that will eat that up and say 'Bu bu but im getting a better deal!' NO you are NOT instead you will cause companies to raise prices and offer rubbish in return so because of that 25% the other 75% suffer. And people that wont buy up DLC or Skyrim collectors edition arent always the one that cannot afford it, in most cases they can...They just have more brain cells.
The difference with collector's editions with models / toys, is that you can still pay $60 for the regular edition of the game and get the same thing. Some editions might have some bonus dlc (like Infamous 2's character / weapon skins), but they're not gonna break the game. I'd love every company to do what From Software / Atlus (hated the digital crap Namco did for Dark souls, took forever to get some stuff and then the "mini guide" was crap) did with their edition and make it a free upgrade for preorders. But if someone is buying a game (and not having their parents get it for them), then they're the adult who has to decide whether they find value in the collector's edition, or to just stick with the regular edition. I'll be getting skyrim when it comes out, but I know I won't be paying another $70 for a plastic dragon.
Less for more...Less value for more money.
MILK IT BABY!!!!!!
So much misinformation here
It’s 20 ‘pieces’ of DLC, not 20 map packs. It has already been stated that some of these pieces could be something small like avatar clothing, but most of them will be multiplayer maps and spec-ops missions. It'll be the equivalent of around 3 map packs, the same as usual.
If you got the hardened edition you get a year of DLC for 39.99 (that’s not counting any value of the other goodies in the HE), and if you buy elite you get the year of DLC for 49.99. With the added bonus that you get DLC every month and don’t have to wait for the map packs. For any CoD fan that normally gets DLC it’s a great deal. For haters that do not play the game, it’s a total milking.
where is the misinformation? I think we all know they are not just talking about map packs. Infact if they were talking about maps, that would have made it a little bit better and less of a joke. Thats all part of the big con, you don't know what you are getting. DLC could be one map and 19 downloadable bits of turd that your avatar shits through his MW3 pants on the dashboard. They could be 19 pink weapon skins with one letter on each skin. You can proudly stand out from the crowed by camping in some dark corner with a bright pink ump with a giant letter "I" for idiot stamped on your gun that you paid a years subscription for and got for free, you paid and got it for FREE!! I know I sound harsh and like a hater and all that but until I know what the dlc actually is, I don't see any value in it because I know what I am saving on or what is meant to be so great about it.
One of them just came out yesterday midnight.
Its actually only 4 map packs. 20 pieces probably refers to each map and maybe modes and spec ops missions. Anyway I got the hardened edition for MW3 for $80 so I'm getting all this DLC for "Free" :D U jealous?
Free?? lol YOU PAID FOR IT! Actually you paid for it before you even knew what you were getting! That right there is a smart consumer.
Essentially COD Elite is a Season Pass, why do people not seem to understand this? Season Passes are the latest thing and I think it's a steal for everything you get with Elite. People just want to find a reason to complain because it's Call Of Duty and N4G kiddo's are mad that the game is scoring better and selling far better then Battlefield 3.
Bro remember quality>quanity. And who cares if it's selling more than BF3 at least the damn campers in BF3 which i can guarantee you were cod players are off i noticed a large portion of BF3 players playing the objective instead of doing nothing so in other words cod is good for keeping most of the prepubescent kids off it.Thank you cod.
I keep seeing this quality>quantity BS, what exactly constitutes quality? It's purely opinion. I guess you could go by review scores, in which case MW3 wins, sales wise of course MW3 wins, online players MW3 easily wins. If you want to compare launches, Battlefield 3 had one of the worst launches on home consoles that I can remember, Xbox Live servers were down forever and that was just the start of the issues, MW3 has had no issues thus far. So I guess I'll take quality and quantity this time around.
Exactly this games is rated mature, 18+ so if you are grown and think spending &40 a year is alot, wow just wow get a life... Go to a club or nice Friday night spot and see what $40 gets you....lmao Is not like they making u buy it...kids now days playing grown up games they can't afford...smdh
Is that why they try to sell me the Elite pass for $50? So I can get a discount?
MO MONEY! MO MONEY! MO MONEY!
So the 60$ DLC gets DLC?
