Many PlayStation 3 owners not pre-ordering MW3

Last month we brought you the news that not many PS3 owners were placing preorders for Uncharted 3. Now in what could be a similar trend is the news that many PlayStation 3 owners are not preordering MW3 either.

According to an article on MSXBoxWorld, while many Xbox 360 owners are placing orders for Modern Warfare 3, it is not the case for owners of the PlayStation 3. Figures released for preorders for the week ending August 13th, MW3 preorders from PS3 owners hit 17,099. This is compared to 66,000 for owners of the Xbox 360.

Owners of the PlayStation 3 have some great titles coming up for the console including Uncharted 3. We have said before that many gamers are being savvier and waiting to see what deals could be had on launch day. Over the coming few months there are some great games coming out for both platforms, and gamers could be waiting for early reviews before deciding which games to buy.

There is also the small matter of Battlefield 3 releasing before MW3, which may have led to some people deciding to get MW3 later than usual. One thing is for sure, the more details of the game that become available make the anticipation for MW3 even higher.

Personally I don’t see what difference it makes which platform has the most preorders for a certain game. Gamers of both platforms will have their own views, and as long as they are happy with what they are planning with the MW3 release so what?

No matter what console you own the next few months in the lead up to Christmas promises to be a great time for gamers. The game doesn’t even come out until November so there is plenty of time for anyone to place a preorder.

There is also the fact that for many people at the moment money is tight, so deciding which game to buy will be even more difficult. It will sell like hot cakes on both platforms and will give the gaming industry a great financial boost.

Have you placed your preorder for MW3 yet?

There is too much game the is wanted this year like MW3, U3, Assassin Creed Revalation, BF3. Plus, there is some uncertainly about the CoD: Elite. People want to wait till other to give reviews. There might be a spike as we get closer but BF3 is starting a war against MW3….

Only if we know what was really going on behind codmw3. What makes me laugh is that people judge call of duty with no evidence. All they talk about is graphics and engine not changing. Ok, do you work in the company, I don’t think so. Look at the trailer, you might say this looks the same as mw2. But behind the screens I bit a lot has been improved. Those game designers aren’t getting bad for noting. Bf3 is just like a bench player in basketball, while Mw3 is like Micheal Jorden setting records. Now Bf3 all I can… Read more »

The truth of the matter is this: The company created an engine, which they then used over and over and over and over again, to make millions. It’s the same game with a few different textures, refinements, and it’s  not really fair to ask people to pay $59.99 + Tax for the same game you played last year, and the year before, and the year before. I stopped buying CoD games three years ago. The same applies to Street Fighter 4. They make a few changes, add characters (“unlock” them is more accurate) and keep changing the title, Super Street… Read more »

The black Los bug thing is probably the reason. Alot of people also wait to see what the collector editions have to offer like me.

I don’t see the point in pre-ordering mw3, it’s cheaper on the midnight release in the UK& the retailers have literally hundreds of copies to sell @ midnight, so I haven’t pre ordered mw3, I will get it on midnight release by purchasing it from my local retailers at about £5-7 pounds off!

I’ve ore ordered Batman Arkham City because My local retailer are offering their bonus pre order content WHICH ROCKS

I refuse to preorder something in good faith when the developer is just going to up and abandon another title in favor of Treyarch’s next project. These back and forth release have proven that unless some serious development and resources are spent developing a game instead of marketing it, you’ll get either marginal visual improvements, broken gameplay, the same gameplay, general performance issues such as lag or glitches, or a combination of those that show how half assed the game really is.

I pre-ordered but i’m just a fan of Modern Warfare in general. I like the storyline and have enjoyed multi-player up until the point of hackers. Black Ops was over hyped and i’m sure many people thought it was gonna be amazing but it only sounded amazing. The problem i run into everysingle day and i’m not even kidding is people using lag-switches. the PSN never does anything about it. I hear on 360 they do sh!z about it. If the PSN was ever hacked or had a major issue again i’ll highly consider becoming a PC gamer. people go… Read more »

I haven’t preordered yet on ps3 either. I’m planning on preodering bf3 for ps3, mw3 for 360 and two copies of mw3 for ps3 (one for me and my brother). Gamestop let’s me pay a little every week (or whoever I want really) until release so that’s why I always preordered in the past. The reason I haven’t preordered yet is because I’m trying to save up for a down payment on a truck. Anyways I believe many ps3 owners feel kinda burned because the ps3 version of bo was horrible at the start and barely (at least for me)… Read more »

im a PS3 owner,and i owned black ops.i never had any lagg or bug problem playing online,the reason im not pre-ordering mw3 is because there are more than 10 better games coming out this fall than mw3

thx
thx

I think the reason it’s lower on PS3 is because Black Ops was a huge lag and bug fest while on Xbox 360 it worked just fine. So I think a lot of PS3 gamers are worried the same thing will happen again and they’re not taking any chances.

I haven’t pre-ordered any of them yet… Resistance 3 BETA on Aug 23, BF3 BETA in Sept, MW3 BETA? lol. I’ll wait until I play the betas before deciding anything on my next FPS purchase. BlOps was a huge disappointment on the PS3, which I think has scared many players away. Although I still play it, the matchmaking, hit detection and lag seem to get worse by the day. COD is the only game that seems to be able to get away with this crap almost one year after release…. and STILL have people buy DLC and support them. It’ll more than likely be BF3 for… Read more »
