That's all very well, but how do they thank the millions of customers for their continued success?

That's right, they don't.

How? By continuing to release new installments every year to keep the franchise fresh. Don't like it? Don't buy it. No one if forcing you.

With the increased security in MW3, the game will be free of hackers(at least on consoles) for years.

Get bored of MW3? There's DLC you can buy, which is obviously optional.

Yeah, they release a new title every year, but don't you get the feeling that it's all just to make themselves another $1 billion?

Surely if they respected their customers they would fix issues that have been present in every CoD since #4 or maybe introduce dedicated servers. Even giving away old maps for free wouldn't make a dent in that $1 billion. It's funny, some studios who struggle to break even offer these things and more.

No, I don't buy CoD anymore, doesn't mean I can't comment.

Modern warfare 3 was a massive disappointment, I hope Black ops 2 is better. I miss actually having fun in CoD

FFA gunplay and Infected are ok, but i agree. Just lost its fun factor especially because of the map design in MW3. You can really tell the difference in who designed the maps from even MW2(which has worse maps than Cod4, but still the same massive spaces with tight corriders and verticality mixed in) to MW3. They are all just bland and lack charm, promote camping and spraying.

I very much agree with this. Infected is the only reason I ever even put MW3 into my PS3 anymore. And I despise the maps, they are the worst maps in the series so far in my opinion. Heres hoping Black ops 2 brings back the balance and the interesting varied maps, with the improved hit detection of MW3.


yes,and for every one MysticStrummer there are potentially ten MysticDrones that simply accept whatever they see,however mindless,and stumble through the fog of conformity without hesitation.
some estimates have the ratio as high as 1/17 but the accuracy of such is largely unknown or even challenged.....
