On this weeks show James, Burlo and Beast talk about whether or not Call of Duty: MW3 failed or not and where the franchise is headed from here. Also, Playoff football and 2012 predictions.
Yeah it failed
No, casual gamers fail.
It only ever topped the steam when it dropped to 44 bucks and launch day. Skyrims dominated it on pc since it launched
COD is full of casual gamers
No, it simply didn't.
Nah. Even if everyone decided tomorrow that it sucked balls and stopped playing, Activision still made like $2billion off of it.
Activi$ion won't think so. So it'll more of the same this November.
Let the sales speak for themselves. I personally like it but even if a piece of crap sells a lot, it is still a success. For example....justin B.
Only a gaming site could believe our even suggest that a game that made two billion dollars "failed". By that logic Apple failed in the mp3 market because it only had 90% of the mp3 player market.
Financially? Nope. Broke the Black Ops record. Critically? Nope. Great reviews and even some 10/10. With the community? Nope. Get 600-800k people playing daily on PS3.
Of course it did right away after CoD4, its just the "community" is so dumb, they simply like to pay $60 every 12 months for the same shit over and over again. I even bet there will be still 2 more same copy paste titles before next gen consoles. Cross the fingers because whats the point of changing something that already sells like crazy...
Lol to get reviews like those Activision had to be bring in dump trucks full of 100$ to each reviewer's home. Also i know a lot of my friends who are done with CoD. I LOOOOOOOOVE fanboy blindness reminds me of my CoD days when i tried to force myself to love MW2 then I said no no its just that one game! Blops will be better! Erm ok that was less frustrating of a game now but its still nothing compared to WaW and MW1. Welp time to find somethin new to do due to lack of anything special happening in CoD anymore. Then i try out MW3 and holy lord was that just the same game with their mistakes taken out and some new ones put in and after playing the same game for 5 yrs lord does it get boring.
@GraveLord Yeah your 100% percent correct. I don't know what else these ignorant users need to stop them from trolling every article. It seems like they spend more time on CoD articles then they do on their own games that they like.
If you listen to these nerds on N4G this game failed, but if you look at what game is number 1 in playing online those numbers will tell you a different story. Sorry nerds but numbers don't lie.
For me it failed. I'm going to trade it in toward UFC. I'm not buying another COD until they get dedicated servers.
A game's success is determined by the profits generated (developers and publishers are business; their primary goal is to make profits). If Modern Warfare 3 failed, it is safe to say every single game released last year failed.
I think cod may die after ops 2 comes out IMO. Black ops still has 200,000+ people playing it while MW3 has anywhere between 500,000 to 600,000 people playing it. Last year when Ops came out it had 800,000 people playing it for the first 3 months and MW2 barely had 100,000.
well,it made tons of profit so in opinion it was successful.
