I love how second place still gets $200,000. That would be shame if you make it all that way just to take second and walk away empty handed. Kudos.
@chrisPperson Kinda funny how two days later you "stumbled" upon my blog when I never gave you a reply and went out of your way to write a blog about me over a blog I wrote that was obviously written for flame bait.
@Philly1UPer This is hopeless. It's clear that you are extremely talented at ignoring all of my comments and going on your own incoherent rants, so I won't bother anymore.
@chrisPperson Well, lets, lets look at the bigger picture. You already pay a monthly bill just to have internet access, You have to pay a monthly or yearly fee to play your multiplayer games on Xbox Live, and now you are going to pay a monthly and yearly fee to get the 'Elite" Service for CoD. Right off the bat, you are giving THREE different companies money (Your Internet Provider,Microsoft and Activision) just to play ONE game online to get features and contest for said game, even though the Marketplace on Xbox Live already does contest and such for said game. So, You are completely fine with giving Microsoft 60$ yearly to be able to play your games online, along with giving Activision another 50 dollars yearly to play ONE game online that you already paid Microsoft for Xbox Live to have access to online gaming in the first place, just so you can compete in tournaments and download DLC and such, even though thats what everyone already paid microsoft for in the first place when signing up for Xbox Live and your fine with Activision even releasing that service on Live? All I can do is shake my head and laugh all the people who will buy this crap. Because of people like that, Video Games will only go further down the crapper when it comes to subscriptions and DLC. You say "You don't have to buy it...no one is forcing you" I say this service shouldn't even exist, because everything Elite offers, they offer on Xbox Live already, which was the main selling point of Live to begin with anyway.
@Philly1UPer Did you even read my comment? Nobody is being forced to buy Elite, it's an extra service for those who want to delve deeper into the Call of Duty experience. If they want to pay the $50 a year for Elite, then that's what they'll do. If they don't, then they won't. Nobody here is being against their will to make two annual payments to play one game. It's a . I'm sorry, I don't know how much clearer I can make that.
...also do we really need this much CoD blanketing Gamespot? Seriously, can we see some other headlines please?
I didn't think it was possible, but these guys made me feel like less of a tool... Whups... I mean... I didn't think it was possibl3, but th3s3 guys mad3 m3 f33l lik3 l3ss of a tool.
I like how these are the "pros" and they basically do nothing but bunny hop and dive all over. They play like that 8 year old kid that annoys the hell out of everyone
@chrisPperson I actually use to be a very big CoD fan. I use to rock it on PC all the time when it was still good and took place during WWII. Then, once Activision started their new policy of whoring out franchises until they are dead and no longer worth a profit is when I stopped caring. I see the Elite Service making more sens for PS3 owners because they don't have to pay to play their games online. But paying 60 yearly for Xbox Live and 50 yearly for "Elite" Service just to play ONE game online is just the biggest waste of money one can do and those same people shouldn't even be that dumb enough to just stand buy as Activision laughs their way to the bank at those peoples expense.
@Philly1Uper No, I'm not going to be getting Elite. I don't care about competitions, clans, or even the discounted map packs. However, there are plenty of people who do, and Elite is a great service for those people. Since I'm not big into the Call of Duty series, Elite does not bother me. It doesn't detract from the overall Call of Duty series, it just adds a few unnecessary bonuses to people who purchase, and some nice stat-tracking additions to everyone, for free. Really, it isn't as big of a deal as you make it out to be. And the strange thing is, you sound like someone who isn't even remotely interested in Modern Warfare 3. Why should you, of all people, be so pissed off about this? If anything, should be the one ranting about the service (but I don't, due to all the aforementioned reasons).
@pman2525 AND @chrisPperson OK, so...you are going to shell out between 60 to 90 some odd dollars (depending on what edition you buy) plus give them ether 8 dollars a month or 49.99 yearly (I can almost guarantee the whole "Hollywood" short movie things wont go any further after 6 months and wont pick up again until after the newest CoD game comes out again the following year) The ability to play in tournaments and win real life prizes (Which is funny, because they already do stuff like that for games and have done it on Xbox Live even with earlier call of duty games where you can compete in tournaments and win what else? Real Life Prizes!) Now, People will say "Dont go Elite then, just buy the DLC through the market/psn" Thing is, I can also guarantee that they will still charge 15.99 for Map Packs, because Activision isn't that stupid to not notice that "Hmm. I really don"t think some 360 owners are going to pay TWO fees for online access. We still have to make money off them some how. So you are paying almost over 100$ yearly for two services for one game. and if they actually release monthly map packs and you actually buy those map packs, by the end of the year you have spent enough money to buy the same game almost 4 times over. Where do I sign up?
@Philly1Uper Apparently you are absolutely clueless about what Elite is. The stat-tracking part of Elite is completely free. If you want to become an Elite "Premium" member, you get all MW3 DLC, extended clan management features, ability to participate in competitions, "Elite TV", etc. For most people, the free stat-tracking and community features are more than enough, so the "premium" features are only for those who are very, very into Call of Duty. Also, I play Counter Strike, and it is no more of a "real game" than Call of Duty. That's quite an elitist attitude you've got there.
@scout7 Real gamers only play Counter STrike. Not a game with BS and pointless Killstreaks and Deathstreaks.
@pman2525 What a suprise, Infinity Ward took a Stat Keeping Concept that's been around for close to 10 years and pass it off as new and charge people 8 dollars a month for it.
Same old, same old...everyone using the UMP. Either make it weaker or just take it out of the game infinity ward
@undercover30 what a surprise battlefield stealing another thing from call of duty and somehow people say its groundbreaking then
@Slyfox_EPIC i have both PS3 and Xbox and im telling you you couldnt be more wrong, Xbox is full of kids...
I think some battlefield fanboys are jealous their game isn't competitive enough for a tournament. Real gamers play COD and CS.
I don't play COD but thats cool that that guy doesn't have to work at McDonald's anymore and student loans are evil.
I must say after reading the comments below and then looking at the gamespot homepage that it does seems suspect as to the amount of coverage COD is getting. It definitely seems disproportionate to the event. I bet that all the gamespot meals, rooms and transport etc are being paid for not to mention they will get free copies of the game. It will be interesting to see what scores they give the game when it comes out. I think in the interest of independance they should at least give the appearance of being professional so as not to muddy the waters when it comes to reviews etc...
OH look, MW3 is everywhere here on Gamespot. Activision must have bought this website! And even after that HUGE amount of money spent on marketing, BF3 will be the best game! Pathetic !
MW3 looks great and you have to ttake your hats off to these guys. Its a great arcade style shooter. For me, I am more looking forward to BF3. It looks better and will probably depict more realism. The battlefield series (especially BF2) is definitely the best competitive FPS MP series out there.
@Atheosis Do you realy think gamespot cares about the sites visitors? The only thing that matters to them is how much they get paid, that's why so many of the "articles" are thinly disguised adverts. It's also the reason so many negative reviews get deleted and a lot of bad news relating to it's advertisers never gets mentioned.
ill be getting this no matter what anybody says about the game . its simple if you like it get it if not get bf3 , or both? mw3 does run at twice the frame rate of bf3 tho !
I WAS THERE. IT WAS DA BOMB. Love being a Los Angelino, sure im down down some cash and late on the rent but who gives a damn COD XP was worth IT. Wooohoo!
For all the people saying GameSpot is being paid, GameSpot has coverage for all the major gaming events, are the people at E3 paying GameSpot to cover them, or are they covering it cause its a gaming event, and GameSpot is after all a gaming site, why wouldn't they cover this.
