Modern Warfare 3 DLC: PS3 gamers should be prepared to get screwed again

 

By Posted 26 May 2011, 04:06

As most of you will be well aware, Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Activision are preparing to unleash the third installment of Modern Warfare this November. However, after the recent teaser trailer release, there has been a few reports suggesting that once again Activision will favor the Xbox 360 version of the game.

It has been noted that at the end of the reveal trailer for Modern Warfare 3, the familiar Xbox 360 logo was shown at the end, with a message telling viewers to pre-order the Xbox 360 version. As you can guess, there was no mention of the PS3 version, which obviously draws resemblance to Activision’s previous stance on which version of Call of Duty titles is considered their favorite.

This insight has been provided by the guys over at GamerSheep, however, this Xbox 360 logo isn’t anywhere to be seen at the end of the reveal trailer on YouTube – was it removed in fear of a PS3 backlash?

Although Actvision and Infinity Ward are yet to announce any sort of console deals for Modern Warfare 3, do not be surprised if PS3 users end up getting DLC one month later again, just like what happens on Black Ops and seemingly every other Call of Duty game in existance.

As a PS3 owner reading this, how would you feel if Activision once again favor the Xbox 360 version of Modern Warfare 3? Will you consider boycotting and perhaps get the PC version, or do you not mind waiting an extra month for DLC?

    I prefer FPS on PC as it is, and was never interested in the MW games to begin with.  CoD was awesome because of it’s authentic storyline to me.  New made up crap is just not as interesting.  Besides, Arma 2 and Stalker still kick so much ass.

    Microsoft is paying a premium to have DLCs released to their platform ahead of the other consoles.

    I think it’s fair.

      awe whine maybe you will do what I did and get rid of that crappy PS3 and stick with a console that puts out for its family and doesn’t get hacked and go offline. I have had my 360 since they came out and have never been upset. I had a PS3 and wondered why I bought the garbage not even a month later.

        Your cool. Ps3 cost more. Yes xbox has better online but cost 60$? Not worth it to play some games online. Xbox can’t do nearly as much as the ps3 can. Yes ps3 are 250$ and you get best blue ray around free online etc.. But go ahead and flame xbox fanboy. Oh and wasn’t microsofts servers down in ’09 for 2 months as well ? Exactly.

    I might just boycott it if Im already happy playing Battlefield 3 by that time. Not happy at what you get in the COD DLC or the price of it.

    Did you guys miss E3 last year? Do you not pay attention to what goes on in the industry you are writing about? This was announced as an exclusive DLC deal through 2012 (THROUGH) which means most likely CoD 9 will also have exclusive DLC for XBOX (timed exclusive). Learn to research what you write about.
