It's for Xbox 360 regular users only. We'll have to wait after PS3 get theirs.
Beside that, I am not at least for the moment. I'm waiting to see if IW/Sledge Hammer can fix the cheaters 1st.
I will buy if the cheaters problem is progressively fixed, otherise, I'm not dumping my money for no PC support game any more.
I would off been buying it but considering I am barely playing this game now it's pointless buying it.
Not to mention how we will have to wait till either April or May before we get the 1st lot of DLC and with Medal Of Honor Warfighter coming in October I, just simply don't see the point in giving a half assed developer any more money.
Now if they change the dedicated servers to ranked servers and add support for PB then I would buy it but, if they don't do that then I won't be buying and as I already know they are not going to do that I won't be buying it.
I definitely won't get it. It was a pain in MW2 to find a working lobby with the new maps even though it had two times the players on PC at the time of the DLC releases.
BO was easier but even there it's hard to find servers running the DLC maps. No more multiplayer DLC for me, especially not with a p2p system.
where the PC being well supported with all features like we know of before mw2
i would surtainly consider it ,for now NO!!!
never played MW2
did buy BLOPS with all mappacks soon server where running new maps 50% of players where disconnected lol nice addon
mw3 did remembered me why i didnt bought mw2
Call of Duty gaming is fading on the PC
IMHO IW developed a great game in MW3, it is a really fun game to play, that is when the game isn't ruined by a growing number of players that are using various hacks.
The first issue I have with the game is that there is a complete absence of the feature that is supposed to make MW3 the best MP experience as it is the only game that offers anything like COD:Elite.
Activision usually offer excellent player support, however in this game either Activision or IW have decided to pass the task of dealing with cheats to VAC where players can report cheats when they spot them. Everything is fine to this point, but then nothing seems to happen, the number of cheats is increasing and there is no way of knowing if any of the cheats have been dealt with.
Since the game was released all we are seeing is Robert Bowling tweeting about new features for XBOX and PS3, emails announcing maps or map packs for consoles and an almost complete failure from staff to assist us by either giving us information on when or if we will get Elite, maps/map packs or new game modes.
Now I've played close to 200 hours on this game, but stopped playing frequently at the start of this month, since when I have played about 2 maybe 3 hours and each time I have had to leave as the every server I joined had some player that was up to something suspicious. Such as shooting from the hip and getting headshot after headshot whilst very rarely, if ever, getting killed but still managing 100% accuracy or someone launching a MOAB when the total number of kills in the game has yet to exceed 10 so not sure how anyone could have chalked up enough kills for a MOAB.
So I don't know, a lot depends on whether or not anything gets done about all of the issues above. The thing that I can see happening is that if people don't buy the map packs then Activision/IW might not bother working on any more updates, and why should they if they get no revenue back from them. So it's like a catch 22, they won't make it if the players don't support them and I'm a player that won't buy it if they don't support the community.
Close to 1 million PC players bought the game, which has to be worth close to £40 million pounds in turnover, surely it can't cost that much to fix the issues with the game and surely fixing the issues can be done and still allow the companies to turn a profit.
It is clear that they will not do what is necessary to clean up the game. BanCandy, bless her heart, is not adequate. They will do as little as possible, to get PC gamers to spend the money on the map pack. They will try to deceive us into thinking they care, that they are trying, until they get the money, then they will revert to their standard method of operation. This whole thing has been a scam, deception to get PCers to spend the money, and that is all. We are fools for believing them and trusting them. They have no intension of honoring their commitment, responsibility, promises or word. If they did, we would know it by now. They won't even protect their own interests; do you imagine they will protect yours? They are irresponsible children, pretending to run a software company and they will lie and deceive to get your money...
I wont get it. MW3 has the worst support i have ever seen in a game. We didnt get infected for public, hackers still in the game, map packs will arrive in maybe april, a long time after xbox.
15 dollars seems like a lot for map packs with this support. I will just go to altermw3 and get map packs for free.
If there are populated servers running the new maps then I might grab them. They all look better than the stock maps from what I've seen so far.
However if there are no servers running the new maps that are populated, then I most definately will NOT buy any DLC.
Not only is P2P lagnet infested with lag, cheaters, and a**holes, but it doesn't even have HC CTF or HC DEM, my two favorite modes. The only decent HC mode they have on lagnet is HC HQ, but even that is annoying as f***ing hell with ricochet. No way in hell I'd pay money to play good maps on a game mode I hate with lag, cheaters, and a**holes.
They need to make the dlc free to all PC users as an apology & comphensation for blatantly lying to us, completely ignoring us, and generally screwing us over. It would've taken them ZERO effort to give us proper dedi's (whether ranked or unranked) like they promised.
Definitely not. As a an addicted first person shooter. I've played lots of hours on MW2 and now MW3. When it came out I've purchased because of my friends. When I 've bought it. It felt like a rip-of. Only the single player looked o.k. But the multiplayer sucked. Now they also planning (again) to sell you some maps they should have included in the beginning anyway. These kind of companies deserve to go under by piracy groups. In fact the real pirates sell you a game 3 times. Anyway I quit this game and start a real one. They won't get a penny anymore.
Lets see... I almost paid the same as console players, about 50 Euros but:
- No Elite
- No patches
- No Infected in Public Lobbies
- No LMG buff
- No informations about anything mentioned up there for months
- Waiting for DLC more than a month longer
- No support at all
- No function to report hacks
Well, not a hard decision. Just sad... Really, really sad how Im treated as a customer.
And people playing MW2 for free have new maps, custom gamemodes, iSnipe and ranked servers, anticheat and anti camping tools. And we spending a lot of money get nothing than... a chance to spend even more money.
No DLC for me and maybe MW3 was the last CoD I bought. Im really angry at the moment.
everything he said..
no ranked dedi servers.. no dlc purchases
fix the game and give pc gamers the right to choose ranked servers or iwnet to play their game..
Those who prefer iwnet, can play there
Those of us who prefer ranking on dedi servers ,play there..
Everyone is then happy
Also, not allowing mod tools and radient on last 3x versions of cod = slow flow of talent to studios, treyarch have just employed a modder/mapper whos recent work was on waw and cod4...... give the tools and the new talent will shine through ,
then everyone benefits, us pc gamers, using new mods and maps, and future console gamers(using their new official maps, made by newly recruited mappers from community)
Not gonna bother giving IW money they dont deserve. i learned that after buying MW3 twice. Once for my PS3 until it BSOD'd and now i have it for pc which is 10x worst than the PS3 version even if it does have better graphics......which it should so no points scored there. PC has pretty much no support even though the pc community are the ones who made CoD as "popular" as it is and we get thrown into a locked room and forgotten. We probably wont be seeing the DLC for another 2-3 months probably which i can foresee the PC community throwing MW3 out the window by then. IWnet has been nuked to oblivion because IW doesnt regulate it by having ranked dedi servers. Almost impossible to get into a match under 100ms ping and even when i do the lag compensation is so bad that most of the time i get killed before i even see the person or ill shot nearly a whole clip into a person and be the one killed.
IW is run by typical greedy corperate executives so they only care about the people who shell out the most money for theyre low quality product (MW3 and late MW2).
