IW announced a new feature on MW3 called Prestige Shop, now what is this exactly? Prestige Shop basically lets you chose what reward you should get everytime you Prestige in the game, from weapons or perks to stay unlocked the whole time you play to exclusive emblems and more.

Another thing was announced is that you can use your old MW2, CoD4, W@W and Black Ops save data and move them into MW3 to get free tokens for your Prestige Shop only if you went Prestige on the named games.

to be more clear here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDOwl0OYhM8

The Biggest FPS of the year arrives November 8th

Thoughts? i think its epic!

I rarely prestige though.

MW1 - P1 (Didn't like the idea and the icons were lame IMO)

World at War - Didn't Prestige

Modern Warfare 2 - Prestige 7

Black Ops - Didn't even make it to the top rank on zero prestige (got bored)

---Plus I played these games mostly on the Xbox 360. Black Ops was on PC and PS3. I rarely play it now any ways, so I won't get any perks out of it.

I also don't like playing Call of Duty on PC either....prefered it on consoles. (Played Call of Duty 1 and 2 on PC though)

Haven't played any CoD enough to prestige. Pretty bad idea anyways.

I already added most of that info in my hype thread already besides the save data part. Thanks for the info finalstar.

Seems like lots of people stopped playing balck ops fast, same for me i stopped playing Black Ops the 4th month after release, i never even went prestige on it, for some reason i felt Black Ops was too boring, before i know it im back to MW2 and soon i may hit 40 days of online gameplay lol. think im at the same prestige as you on prestige 7 or 6

Really?? I only played MW2 for like 5 months. I got up to a 4.0 K/D, I think, and got bored. I also bought a PS3 around that time, so I switched from being a primary 360-gamer to a primary ps3-gamer.

That's cool, except for the part where I'm getting the PC version and my save for MW2 and Blops is on my broken 360 and the PC version of CoD 4 had no prestiges.

Well I think it was 4...could have been 3.0. Is there a way to check K/D outside of the 360, or must I login in.

I also played a tons of Gears of War 2 and got a K/D of 3.2 before I switched to PS3-prime.

(Super easy to increase k/d and/or win games on Gears of War 2. Everyone uses shotgun, and I always use Lancer, rarely use shotgun. I win most of the time because I know how to use the lancer and keep my distance. Yet, people were still determined to wall bounce and try to get me. They get down and down before they could get to me. Tisk TIsk)

I think there is a way if its black ops you go to the website and log in there if its not balck ops then no other way but to have the game in your system and check it out yourself, tho its ok if you cant no big deal :P

Only COD I played enough to prestige in was COD4 and you couldn't in the PC version. I'd really rather just keep my unlocks anyway.

My current K/D is 2.17 >.>. My brother screwed up my K/D. Oh well, I gave him my 360 and Gold Account when I went PC-prime because I had no use for it, and his gold ran out.

I know my K/D before I stop playing the game was at least 3.0. That was my goal in most games when I played on 360. You don't have trust me if you don't want to. I don't care lol..not trying to brag or anything.

halo 3 = reach

gears 1/2 = gears 3

ratchet TOD = ratchet ACIT

Yakuza 3 = yakuza 4

dead space = dead space 2

ye to a degree...but thats like saying diving to prone affects the entire gameplay as well... its an optional use. It still PLAYS the same... with minor changes just like cod. In fact i remember RARELY using the armor abilities at all except just to try them out

Wrong. Armor abilities made Reach into the horrible game it is. Halo 3 was awesome without them.

I rarely prestige though.

MW1 - P1 (Didn't like the idea and the icons were lame IMO)

World at War - Didn't Prestige

Modern Warfare 2 - Prestige 7

Black Ops - Didn't even make it to the top rank on zero prestige (got bored)

---Plus I played these games mostly on the Xbox 360. Black Ops was on PC and PS3. I rarely play it now any ways, so I won't get any perks out of it.

I also don't like playing Call of Duty on PC either....prefered it on consoles. (Played Call of Duty 1 and 2 on PC though)

Not me, I loved Black Ops. Maybe its because I was unable to game online during MW2's release, andduring almost the entire year following. When I did I found it full of cheap BS. When I played Black Ops, that BS was mostly gone, and I fell in love with the addictiveness of a CoD title for pretty much the first time. Now I see it's flaws, and am easily frustrated by it, but then it was crack.

Well MW3 is pretty much going to be the same as the last 3-4 COD games, so it's not a surprise that you can carry over your old data...

Um diving into prone changes the gameplay completely its not an optional ability you dont have to go out of your way to use it its there its used and its often cheap diving into prone as a guys shooting you maintaining your own accuracy all the time shooting. As for the topic at hand...Its a idiotic idea its the same thing we've seen in COD since cod4...those that played the longest, purchased the game at launch...etc get abilities and weapons that decimate all opponents....too bad for any new users or users that didn't prestige or didn't purchase the game at launch or from gamestop. It unbalances the game at launch.

That's actually a really great idea. Its a shame I only prestiged once with each game (other then WaW where I never prestiged), but this new prestige shop might make people want to play more MW3 AND more MW2 and 1. Smart move.
