Is it actually true that MW3 will have extra stuff for people that pay?  Supposedly that is what Bobby told investors or something.  If it is true then I probably won't even buy this for the single-player campaign.  I mean, since when was $60 bucks plus $40 for DLC not enough?

Well where I live (Prince Edward Island, Canada) Mw3 will come out at 69.99.+ tax which comes to 84.24.. and then 40 on DLC and whatever else they decide to make you pay for.

@ConfusedSanity: us canadians do enjoy a good spot of waller raping every now and then.

If they follow through with this and its not just something stupid like character skins and other aesthetic upgrades then I can definitely see this being the end for COD. (at least for a few years)

I'm already pissed enough about the Battlefield 3 pre-order guns to not buy that game.

To be fair I don't even bother with EA's pre-order nonsense. It usualy ends up being pointless or something you unlock in time anyway. I would hope that the COD:MW3 pay stuff doesn't actually change the game in anyway and just gives people with too much money more hats or something. As long as its not as shitty as L.A Noire getting complete cases depending where you pre-ordered, that was BS.

No one is forcing you to buy anything.

Doesn't surprise me really.  They are going to make an ass load of money with this game.

I am not saying I am being forced, but I really enjoyed the story of the first two games and was just hoping to continue that with this one.  It's just disappointing.

That is the dumbest fucking thing I have ever heard. I can understand getting pissed at having to pay more money to get significant extra content, which will separate the user base, but fucking seriously you AREN'T buying BF3 just because they give you a FREE gun for pre-ordering at NO EXTRA PRICE. 
 
Fuck me.

@ConfusedSanity: I believe if you order online form certain retailers you can mitigate the tax, especially if they have warehouses in the us. The only tax i pay on games is the bargain bin ones at ebgames.

They are exclusive guns that you can't get otherwise.  Is it really that stupid to not support something you don't agree with?

Much better, dollar bills will be coming out of Captain Price's mustache

@Cabbage_TheMan: Only one exclusive gun. The other thing is a flash suppressor and a different type of ammo. Hardly exactly game breaking shit, and judging by what they usually give away they'll suck anyway. The only other part of the package is just early access to something if you care about the game. So yeah its kinda dumb to think that's a big deal >.>

I think Activision came out on record to say that they have no plans to charge for online play in their COD titles. 
#21 Edited by Cabbage_TheMan (240 posts) -

So I guess the recent news means that MW3 will be less broken than Battlefield 3.  Nice.

Oh okay yeah haha, I see your point but I don't really see it as something to get that annoyed at to not buy the game. Tis your decision!
