Wonder if Black Ops III for the PS4 can outsell this being the current best selling version of COD for a single console.

Haven't even played this yet, but it's plain shocking to see it be so successful. I mean, it's surpassed the top spot on the 30 best sellers list again! You'd think there would be a ceiling for the amount of people who play CoD, but it just keeps on growing every year. To think that this game has until November to sell even more. It could be at 15 by then.

Muppet0000 did I ever say anything about not being able to play pirated games on consoles. NO I did not so you really should shut up if you can't read. There is piracy on consoles but it is nothing when compared to pc.. Witcher 2 was just estimated of being pirated 4,5 million times. NO console game will ever reach those numbers and that was a game worshipped by pc community the exclusive without drm etc... You have to mod your console and risk it getting bricked. You lose your online access and in worst case scenario your online purchases with your account.. Not to mention if you wan to pirate on consoles you need a freaking pc to do it. Unless you wan't to buy them at blackmarket.. On pc piracy is easier than getting the actual game. This is why every multiplatform game sells better on consoles and gets pirated way less. HERE YOU GO: http://torrentfreak.com/call-of-duty-black-ops-most-pirated-game-of-2010-101228/ The real questino why do the game developers even bother with pc when they make single player games. Everybody I know get the pc version off the internet free but if it were a consoles exclusive there would be a chance they would buy it.. Like many did with RDR.

@Mupet000 Actually no, MS has success fully patched All hacks with XGD4 or 3 was it? Anyway, Xbox Live was not hacked, I believe it was over loaded servers. Im sorry, your wrong. Plus, To hack the XBox 360, you need Jtag which you need a special engineer for... unlike the Ps3 where you just need a simple USB to successfully hack the ps3 and even play online without getting banned!

Now now nilli, you should really try and shut up if you don't know what you are talking about. The 360, PS3 and Wii are all hacked and capable of playing pirated games, infact the 360 was only hacked a few months after it's release and every single update microsoft has released to try and patch these hacks have failed.

I at last bought a CoD game for the first time (MW3) just to see why 26M+ gamers buy it every year, and I'm very mixed : the physics engine is better than in Halo (there's tons of weapons acting very differently, shooting accuracy is better, etc.) BUT it is so boring and uninteresting to play... I see MW3 as a "RPG-FPS", when you start at level 0 and have bad weapons, you get XP even if you're 8th/8, unlock a bazillion things when getting levels, etc. All is done to push kids (that's definitely a kids' game) playing to get a better arsenal... I think psychologists must have been hired to create this game ! That's just a game that reward and reward and reward... Halo is far more fun and competitive IMO. Anyway, I still play MW3 for a while longer (i don't like to waste my money)...

Rexar you do know that is why most of the developers focus on multiplayer games on pc. You also know that it is most definately possible to play on pirated servers and over the lan using tunneling software on pc. You are a pathetic loser who is running out of excuses. Black ops got over 4 million illegal dowloads on pc last year you retard little child. Modern warfare got over 4 million illegal downloads on pc year before that. You are a freaking joke. Pc piracy has shot through the roof in the past few years it is so easy and yeas you can play most of the games illegally even if those games have multiplayer. On consoles you have no chance.

It had almost the same engine on consoles yes (or looks almost the same), but the difference between BF3 and BC2 on PC is vast. So you agree that the problem isn't that PC is dying, but that console gamers don't like 30 FPS. And larger maps? As far as I know, BF3 has vastly bigger maps than MW3

nilli posted 11/11/2011, 06:54
pezus BC2 was no way console focued it had almost the exact same engine. Oh and nobody gives a fuck about the first BFBC. BF3 sold like shit. It was suppose to be this challenger for COD and they made it pc focused because they don't know how tro make console games. 360 version of CODMW3 will sell more than BF3 on every single platform. If Dice will get the next BF game run on 60fps on consoles and introduce split-screen and do larger maps etc... then they have a chance to challenge COD.
