@Orangeninja1092:Get your facts straight it is infinity ward making mw3 but sledgehammer games helped them do the single player and raven software helped with the multiplayer and all three companys are owned by activision.

@ sickntired213 Lmfao agreed. It’s always lag lag (host migration) lag lag (another host migration) lag, oh, i’m sorry we just wasted half an hour of your time, but this game lobby is now closed. -.-

Look, here’s a serious question. Why is NA releasing this bundle instead of releasing the inFamous 2 bundles that EU are getting? NA users really want the game/controller bundles in particular. Will we see these at all?

Regardless of what people think. This is will still sell like hot cakes. People looking to get into a PS3 often purchase BO anyways, its just more of a reason to buy.

+ IrosoMeyi on May 25th, 2011 at 11:30 am said:

Yep of course Call of Duty modern warfare 3 will out sell BF3 because Alot of stupid people like this Stupid game. BF3 will kill CoD forever just you wait and see little children.

thats not fair for people that already bought the ps3 and had to pay for the 1st map pack so why should they get a free map pack just FOR buying a ps3… if u going to give them the 1st map pack for free how about give the people the map pack 2 for free because its not fair that some people had to buy the map 1 and the others that buys this bundle gets it for free… whats up with that


162

+ IrosoMeyi on May 25th, 2011 at 11:35 am said:

I second this ^ i do have CoD and i like zombies SORTA. gets extreamly boreing tho.

Hopefully there’ll be a Resistance 3 bundle if this crappy game gets one.

wow, this is a surprise to see, seeing as how the cod series is biased toward the other box…

I think Black Ops is totally a broken game. Don’t you guys have any other better game to bundle it with?


171

+ Kchow23 on May 25th, 2011 at 12:26 pm said:

Would prefer if these bundles came with custom PS3s as opposed to just the standard PS3.

+ Octopium on May 25th, 2011 at 12:29 pm said:

@ Everyone, They are selling a Black Ops Bundle rather then MW3 or BF3 Bundle because 1. I doubt their making any money off Black Ops anymore considering its popularity, and if they sold it with any new upcoming game they would lose so much money. PS3’s are worth $300 and if they sold MW3 with it, they’d be losing $60 bucks for each bundle sold. This is just to stimulate their market and HOPEFULLY relieve some of the damage done by the outage.

i hope this bundle lasts till June 9 as it’s my birthday…my bro already has the ps3 and black ops but it would be fun to play together at same time online

Sony this is awesome! Just, get the bundle out faster for MW3, like day one! The online gaming community is great, and it would be awesome if we could get more people but let’s try for quicker release to get more sales!

why have a old game as a bundle

+ RabidFace on May 25th, 2011 at 12:52 pm said:

@remanutd5
They should do Motorstorm Apocalypse. It would fit perfectly in their Bundle timeline. Still have my 80GB MotorStorm bundle PS3; last batch of the real PS3s ;)

But as for the topic on hand, it’s funny they are releasing a bundle after the PSN fiasco, and bundled with the most played game on the PSN (or XBL), included with the first DLC maps. I for one think it’s a smart move. If there was someone on the fence about a PS3 or 360, who doesn’t already own either, this might be their push to get a PS3 in their home. It’s a great entertainment system, and it plays games.

Also, on the Call of Duty and Battlefield issue, I think people on just one side should be hush hush. They are slightly different games. Been playing since CoD 1 and BF1942 and they are different experiences, throughout both games timeline. If I want a smaller quarters game, with less thinking, I will play CoD (or CS, Quake,etc) But if I wanted a more open ended game with large maps, use vehicles, I will play a BF game.

I can’t wait for both Battlefield 3 and MW3. Would get both when they launch, but my paychecks are usually gone before I get them. So decisions to make when that time comes 

+ orangeguy17 on May 25th, 2011 at 1:12 pm said:

Too late now that there offering this bundle when black ops and the first strike map pack came out a while ago. But it is still good for new comers!

+ Someguy12121 on May 25th, 2011 at 1:14 pm said:

Why SONY?!?!?! Why would you bundle your amazing system with such crap?!?! CoD is dead and Battlefield has taken the title of best FPS this generation. CoD players are the biggest suckers in the community. They will pay $59.95 for the same game just different maps and then they will pay $5.99 for maps just to camp. Why are you wasting our time with CoD anyways??? The PSN is still not 100% up yet and you guys are taking time away from that to make crap bundles. Now if it were BC2 Ultimate Edition in a bundle then yes that is worth the money but this does not even come with any DLC. Proves that Activison is desperate. Just like Microsoft giving away 360s with laptops.

+ DARKFlRE007 on May 25th, 2011 at 1:19 pm said:

ok had that been an uncharted 3 bundle i would have upgraded from my old ps3 to get it, but COD? not worth 300 bucks.

why is everyone (who plays uncharted series) so impatient for the store? has it not occured to you that if the store is down past the 28th (i think) that when we get our month of free ps plus, we will ALL get the uncharted 3 demo early and free? i would rather be patient lol.

+ Dartanyan614 on May 25th, 2011 at 1:22 pm said:

I agree with everyone eles.. Instead of doing a Black op’s limited addition that will only cover the DLC that not much people approves, It will only make sense to do a Limited Addition with a game that’s going to come out. Plus Not much people play Black op’s On PS3 anymore, Mw2 Was a successful game that had the most sell’s out of the Call Of Duty Franchise. The only problem with mw2 was just Noob Tubers and people who gave off free kill’s. I hope that Activision saw this problem in Mw2 and will fix it in mw3. But Like Most games/Company’s They Ignore There Fan’s and just Keep doing with whatever they wan’t to do. I think this is what it is because of all the negativity and stupidity that Us (the gamers) Say/Do. I really Hope SONY will start paying attention to it’s consumer’s… Than again I could be wrong…….But this is what I asume…..

+ NightRaven77 on May 25th, 2011 at 1:26 pm said:

Apologies if it’s been covered past the first 50 comments.

The reason for this now is multifold. Yes, MW3 is coming…..in NOVEMBER. Yes the game’s been out a while, but with the MW3 announcement coming at E3, maybe someone who hasn’t tried any of the CODs might like to see what it’s all about. It’s timed with the availability of the new DLC. And in light of the recent PSN issues, it’s a great way to get new customers. If I were eight years younger and didn’t already have a PS3, this would be very tempting.

+ dime5150 on May 25th, 2011 at 1:26 pm said:

Sooo you offer a bundle with DLC that can’t be even used since the PS Store is still not even up.. Nice job Sony.


196

+ Kenshiro88 on May 25th, 2011 at 1:27 pm said:

I agree with KwietStorm. What Battlefield fans are you talking about? You are inviting them if anything.

Anyway, judging by the amount of people that are playing and loving the inFAMOUS 2 demo at my Gamestop store alone I would think an inFAMOUS 2 bundle would make PERFECT sense! It would get them the system and introduce them to Sony’s awesome 1st party exclusives (it should also come pre-bundled with demos of Uncharted 1 & 2, LBP, and GT5 but that would be just too forward thinking). But I’m sure it will come out a little too late to snag any sales from people finally ready to make the plunge. At least bundling a game with a system is a smart move, even if it has to be something as exploited and overrated as Call of Duty.

+ ChunkyDunk1 on May 25th, 2011 at 1:30 pm said:

I think its a great bundle but whats the point doing it now? they should have done it 5 months ago when the game was new, instead they should bundle it with one of the new games that are coming out soon like battlefield3
