    PlayStation 3 Owners Aren’t Pre-Ordering Modern Warfare 3 

    MSXboxWorld has revealed that PlayStation 3 owners aren’t exactly flocking to the release of Modern Warfare 3 as much as Xbox360 owners.

    One reason for this is the fact that Sony doesn’t seem to be “starving” its owners for 1st party content. I’ve said time and time again that many gamers are much savvier and waiting to see what deals could be had on launch day. There are a lot of other (and more promising) games coming out within the next few months other than Modern Warfare 3.

    And let’s not forget the small matter of Battlefield 3 releasing before MW3, which could’ve halted the “OMG I MUST GIT MODERN WHARRFUR3 NAO!” momentum that other Fish games have gotten in the past. Even the new trailer of the Spec Ops/Survival mode trailer hasn’t gotten gamers off of their savvy/indecisive asses to pre-order Modern Warfare 3 (and in my opinion, despite how I like making fun of this series and the hate it gets, that Spec Ops/Survival mode looks damn good. Even if it basically “horde” mode, but with Fish perks.) And no, I will not stop calling this series “Fish”.

    Note: Am I the only one that thinks MW3’s music/”brrrnnggh” noise sounds an awful lot like Bad Company 3’s?

    Although I really don’t give a Duke Nukem flying turd about which platform has the most pre-orders of a certain game. It doesn’t change the fact that gamers of every platform will have their own views on how much a game is worth to them. And no amount of  pre-order stats will make gamers feel any inclination on rushing to the store and making a five dollar promise that they will buy your game on release day or a couple days after that day. Your game’s content will do that, not useless stats.

    It matters not which platform you’re on, the months leading up to Christmas promises to be a great time for you (excluding PSP and 3DS, they have no “gaemz”. The purposeful misspelling of games is kind of a inside joke here at 8BC, just deal with it and accept it softly.. like a strange rapist approaching your naughty parts, but the rapist is hot and has an aroma of Hot Pockets and Cheetos.)  The game doesn’t even come out until November so there is plenty of time for anyone to place a pre-order or not.

    Have you placed your preorder for MW3 or any game coming out between now and Christmas or early 2012 yet? Let us know here in the comments section.

        Way to break the most important rule of making a mystery, mysterious. >_>

      I myself am not getting MW3 as I feel like every COD game I’ve played was the same. As for a review, I’ll get one of my contributors to do it as the game does nothing for me.

      I’ll get Battlefield 3 on day-one though. Also, I do agree that Xbox 360 owners are really starving for first-party games this winter. They get Gears of War 3 and thats it.

      PS3 owners get Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, and a whole lot more.

      So while 360 owners are enjoying their MW3, PS3 owners get to enjoy MW3 with other triple-A titles exclusive to their platform.

      Oh how far the 360 exclusivity has fallen.

        That, I feel, is kind of a double-edged sword. On one edge, ps3 players get a hell of a lot more variety; that simply can not be denied. However, Microsoft execs use the comparison in sales data for 3rd party games to 3rd party developers to further reenforce their bid for exclusive or time-exclusive content/DLC.

        Which, as we all know; can be particularly annoying for some impatient gamers. (Pointing at all of you players that bought the 360 SOLELY for not wanting to wait for some maps.)

      I’d have to agree with that. But really those maps altogether cost more than the actual game. People could buy two triple-a games for that amount.

      $15 for 5 maps never really sat well with me, and never will.

      But then again, most casual COD players don’t mind paying those exorbitant amounts because they don’t even know they’re being gyped.

    Modern Warfare 3 Spec Ops Survival Trailer.. That is all 

     

    Oh who am I kidding, I always have to put some dialogue here just to let all of you know that I’m legendary. And I know that you thank me for it. Quick question: What do you get when you add “Survive for as long as possible” from Zombies with insane perks with the fact that your AI opponents also get perks WITH the Spec Ops mode… you get awesome.. that’s what you get.. don’t believe me? Watch and jizz on yourself then tell me I’m right, because I’m always right.

     

     

    Now some may call me weird for this, but my favorite part is at the end… spoiler alert…

     

     

    THE BOUNCING BETTY!!!!! (my personal favorite landmine)
