    I voted no. But I'll be buying Call of Duty 2 and World at War. Actually I'd rather buy the PS2 World War II Call of Duty games before Modern Warfare 1-3 and Black Ops.
    GIMME BATTLEFIELD 3!

    No i won't be, as i've said in the past, after COD4:Modern Warfare the series felt like it wasn't making enough of a distinction between each iteration, especially not for $60. I did buy MW2 though mainly because there was nothing else out for me to play at the time and a LOT of people were online in that game so i jumped in for a little bit.

    To be honest if MW3 was like $30 i'd probably pick it up, but otherwise it just feels as though they're just copy and pasting code and changed the number in the title.

    So right now, Battlefield 3 FTW!!! :)

    how many of you that have said no to buyng mw3 bought black ops or MW2?

    Because it seems like so far Activision will loose a potential 28 sales on MW3

    Last CoD i brought was WaW and hated it well one part really made me hate the game in my view. Most regreatful purchase next to Far Cry 2.

    Played Black Ops & MW2 on 360 since brother brought it, Ops was rather boring. MW2 was good (SP) but some parts are stupid in it.

    I just don't understand the high prices still on steam :/

    People will buy it, just to play it. Even thought they say they won't. They will.

    I voted not sure, but I think I will eventually. It's already £5 cheaper to get the disc from Amazon, which is Steam anyway.

    Have you seen the trailers? Wow! The graphics are superb, including the physics rendering:

    There's also a Steam weekend offer of significant money off the current CoD games, including Black Ops. Note that the Steam homepage says 50% off all CoD except MW3 and Black Ops DLC, yet the Black Ops game is only 33% off. I don't think putting this on the homepage was a mistake... :wtf:

    hmm. Interesting !
    So most of you people think CoD's heading to the gutters -or has hit the bottom already- since CoD4, yet most of you got MW2 and/or BO.
    Very interesting.

    Oh well, like I said in many other CoD flame war turned threads.

    I didn't buy it my brother did :p Since his friends buy it.

    Well for me i just dislike the game series now also the same for the competitor but i understand why people like them. I don't hate them just the pricing is a bit Ott on pc especially

    When they make PC games with PC features and stop making what should be an expansion pack into a $60 game I might be interested.
    For the record I haven't bought or rented any CoD game since MW1 unless WaW came out after MW1.

    the graphics look the same with a lack of good lighting, there might be MORE in the scene sets, but textures, lighting, art design is still the same

    My thoughts exactly, for $30 it would be reasonable. And regarding the code, we could make that argument about Microsoft Office... oh wait, people don't buy the new version over and over.

    anyone not getting MW3, getting Dead Island? I have been listening to the trailer song
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CzcOcBb_ms all day and i am thinking about getting the game, looks fun like a different approach to a zombie game. Not to mention i would love to be able to play that song on piano

    I'm not buying MW3. I didn't play MW2 much and Black Ops was gifted to me and due to it being a terrible port and game it turned me off the series for good. They aren't even trying with these games now. They haven't bothered to change animations or sounds or anything.. it's pretty sad.

    When they find a way to make shooters not a constant "I've seen that before"-experience, maybe.

    I will not be purchasing this game. It's basically an exact replica of BO but just with different levels and tweaks in design. (as far as multiplayer goes):rolleyes:

    I won't be buying this game. I didn't buy bops either. I would have said I'd be getting BF3 but since the whole origin requirement appeared that's been dropped from my list too.

    I've really been enjoying my RPGs at the moment with witcher 2 as my latest investment (you get a LOT more hours of entertainment per £/$/euro in RPGs than in these FPS games these days), and so it looks like skyrim and TOR will be carrying me into 2012 when ME3 hits. If I really need an FPS I'll get dead island as that's looking to be a nice open-world zombie masher. Hell the halo franchise is more of a lure than the weak-as PC ports from Activision (I'd rather play a game on the platform it is designed for, but can't bring myself to play a console game which is available on PC).

    You better take TOR off your list too then since Origin will be exclusive for TOR...
    And since EA is publishing ME3 also, I would imagine that game is only going to be on Origin too.

    Honestly, I don't understand this whole disliking of Origin... Not to get off topic though ;)
