multiplayer you can say "works" fine , but we all know over a 3 month period that the staff at COD has neglected their customers .
-failure of bans
-no-lock on with RL
-bad host migration
-bad stat counter
-prestige token glitch not fixed
-elite maps playable by non-elite members

These posts are ridiculous. Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't video games considered an artistic medium? How can you sue somebody because their art didn't make you happy? Its the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. It's a video game and it didn't make you happy. That is why there is an entire industry devoted to giving you game reviews. Take some personal responsibility and make an informed decision. I mean come on, this isn't a line a fire detectors that proved faulty or a vehicle part that needs recalling.
I agree with most that you probably have a case with Elite as it is a service for many is not delivering on its promises and apparentely many have successfully been refunded. But a game? So I can pretty much go buy any game and if enough people think it sucks we can file a CAL? Give me a break.
I am a 4 year college grad attorney with about 8 class C LawSuits. Sorry my typing is bad I am in a rush because I have to be to work. First there is no grounds for your case, no money was taken from you that was frauded or mis-used. A company such as IW or Microsoft do understand the possibilites that come from releasing a game and not having it up to par, but at no circumstances is IW or Microsoft reliable for a few glitchs in the game progression from launch. You bought a product at the expense that you felt was in no way like this, but you also have to understand that game was only released on Nov 8th, if you understand the basis for which a game is made like say the coding, and the set up of each line of code than you would understand that there will be bugs, glitchs, and loop holes at launch. I wont lie this game was rushed, because Activision is trying to do the year to year, back to back game release, they know Call Of Duty is there cash cow and will continue to sell them as long as you the buyer keep buying them. If there is such a problem with the game then I would suggest maybe moving on to another game until the patchs fix what is wrong. Or try a different game type, I started out playing Core TDM and have moved to HC Team Tac and have not looked back since. So if you want you can file a complaint with this company at the expense that it will cost a fortune to hire a attorney to go to court with this company. Basically you would be attacking a well funded company with very good attorneys that will most likely win the law suit, now in some way shape or form you find this game is causing some form of harm to you pyshically, or mentally than you may and I use May very loosely, may have something to go on, but if you read the back of the book that comes with your game they pretty much explain everything from buying this game. So in my personal and professional opinion you do not have a case. I am sorry for your lose and hope things work out for you...
Where do you get that long line of BS from? The game on the packet says it supports multiplayer play. There is no time limit either on the back.
ps moron I never mentioned Single Player, that is not the discussion.
You antirely didnt read the part that Activision reserves the right to modify or remove online support at any time without notice ????
some people are beyond being blind.
WOW I wish I was a lawyer so I could take your money.
As a consumer who has purchased MW3 Elite (and all your other 'CoDs'), I am completely fed up with the Stalinist attidtude towards the gaming community. We have chosen to buy a product on the basis that it would provide entertainment that is completely functional (works) and this MW3 version does not work properly in Multiplayer mode.
''Activision' take our cash but do not provide a product that works properly. Hit detection in multiplayer mode is still a problem and allegedly users with a good connection are still being penalised in game. They even take part of the product away e.g. Drop Zone without any in-game warnings to the user. The Elite component did not work on launch and is very disappointing in its current state, certainly not value for money. I don't see how other manufacturers could get away with what they are doing.
Please can legal professionals advise.
Read the EULA... you have no case.
And keep me the hell out of it.
actually nobody has to give you any kind of a refund
giving people any kind of a warranty or return/refund policy is optional the law does not dictate that they have to. if in that case you wanted a refund and you were not given one then to get one you would have to take it to court and give a compeling argument as to why you deserve one.
