    "it's entirely possible that Modern Warfare 3 will raise the bar once again."

    You mean lower the bar again?

    Did you hear about the story of some thugs that stole 6,000 copies of this game? that cracked me up.

    Although I have to admit, I was watching a multi-player video on gamespot and they are FINALLY BRINGING BACK DEDICATED SERVERS! This alone may sway me if the reviews are any good to pick this up if i can find it for a reasonable price :)
  4. I just read one of the first Modern Warfare 3 reviews @ http://mwarfare3.com . The game sounds like it's going to be great and I can't wait to get my hands on it come midnight! I woner if the servers are going to crash because it seems like everyone in the world is getting this game.
  5. Awwww. You must have been tbagged alot... Im sorry.
  6. loads of people who preorder games tend to get them the day before depending on location/service. Same goes to MW3 just like any other game, but MW3 gets an article about it... really?

    You know I was excited for every COD release since MW1/COD4 but not anymore.

    WAW, MW2, BO were all DISASTERS on PC and to this day sucks hard, so yea you finally let me down enough times IW/activision.

    Hope the console guys enjoy their game they successfuly stole from the PC.
  8. How can MW3 raise the bar again? It has only come out once :p :)
  9. Google "Modern Warfare 3 Thieves Crash Into Van Carrying 6,000 Copies" & you find a story on how desperate people are to get their hands on this video game. This happened in France.

    This is great news for us BF3 players now the 12 year COD players can get out of our game where you actually have to work as a team and accomplish missions. And can go back to the rampant spawn camping and getting screamed at by their mums for staying up to late.

    Its a win win!

    Yeah I attended the COD XP but unfortunately i didn't received my Harden Edition copy but the sad part of it I called FedEx earlier today and they told me it was cancelled. Now I have to go to the store and buy myself a copy because of the retards who cancelled my shipment.And by the way the funniest thing about this I live in northern part of California 6 hours away from Los Angeles.

    This is the first COD game I haven't had on pre-order since Modern Warfare 1... But imo MW1 was the best of the series and it's been downhill since there. MW2, WAW and BO were all distinctly "meh", theyre basically all just the same game with a different campaign and a few different guns.. big deal.

    Maybe you could say the same for battlefield.. idk. But I just enjoy battlefield so much more. BF3 is just plain amazing. I will pick up MW3 when steam decide to slash it..
  15. I had my game since nov 7 and some of my friend form nov 5-6 and i am in cyprus our stores leaked it!!!!
