    or just call it what it is: a map pack. an expansion, whatever. don't charge $60 for a title that copies assets from previous games, and uses an engine that's more than 2.5 years old. what exactly does the $60 go towards when most of the work was already done!?

    That's what any shooter is... Halo 3 is still halo... bf3 is still battlefield... As for the price I think they are too low... I remember buying Super Nintendo games for $60 so the price thing is mute... If they change the game too much then people just whine and bitch and say it isn't even the same series so it's a no win situation unless you take into account that COD is the best selling game series EVER :roll:

    I think they should release an $80 dollar map pack next week. It's obvious they'll make money on it. Activision isn't exploiting this game nearly enough. I really hope they charge at least a hundred bucks for MW4 or BlackOps 2 or whatever. Hell, put the franchise on its own dedicated console, they could really make some profit.

    Here's a Public Service Announcement cause I don't do this series and every release proves more and more that I've made the right choice. From Guru3D Forum...

    you're trying too hard with that argument gary. halo 3 and halo are far from the same thing, and i think you know it. half life 1 and two, both amazing games on their own, both totally different between each other.
    your argument holds no water. you need to stop trying to defend MW. if it's as great as you say it doesn't need your defense. the fact that you are actually arguing that the lack of improvement is not only ok but necessary, makes me think less of you. sorry.

    as for prices, no argument that relatively speaking they are less than before - but at $60 , MW3 is not equivalent in value to Skyrim or Uncharted 3, any way you slice it. it. is. over. priced.

    Meh, anyone trying to change anyone else's opinion on the game is hopeless. You either like it or you don't.

    ...just no.

    Halo -> Halo 3 was a huge change, as was BF1942 -> BF3. These games had brand new engines, with newer features, better physics, better graphics, as well as loads of content that their predecessors did NOT have. MW3 is running the same engine that CoD4 is, using elements lifted directly from that game, and has made minimal changes to a majority of the game. As much as I don't like Treyarch, at least they do stuff different. They don't just literally make the same game each time around.

    Sales != Quality. Transformers movies sell well each year, must be cinematic masterpieces right?

    I'd also like to address the double-standard when it comes to review scores. MW3 reviews all point out that they have not changed a thing, and that the single player is still a cinematic scripted experience with minimal choice. These are the same people that docked BF3 as much as 20 or 30% of their score for having a cinematic and scripted experience with minimal choice. Every person I know who has actually played through the BF3 SP loved\s it, yet according to every single review, it's a giant piece of shit. Hell, MW3 is so restrictive, you're literally mounted to the back of a truck or a tank for like half the missions...

    i agree - but there's a difference between trying to change someone's opinion and trying to clarify an obviously false statement. it's not that what he said is subjectively different than my opinion - it's that he was factually wrong almost to the point of lying. big difference imo.
