Don't think they'd be that bothered by the sales been down 4.2% tbh. They still made a crazy amount of profit on the game (plus the extra Elite subs). Now if sales drop 42% that's a different story!
Of course the CoD haters will jump on this & have a little party in their pants.
We all know what happens when something gets stale - people don't fall for the hype any more.
Have the public, and gamers, finally realised that every cod since the GREAT Call Of Duty 4 has been nothing more than that exact game - with a different skin. . .broken connections..... and massively imbalanced gameplay and other annoyances that spoil each edition?
Thing is it isn't teh same game as 4. I've been playing MW3 on and off, and it doesn't feel right. ( i actually enjoyed it at launch though)
I don't get involved in teh moment as i did when playing 4. The maps are so hit and miss, they tried to balance the game so much that it just a case of being shot from all sides. Black box for example it got so many level drops, and open areas as soon as you turn your back you're dead.
Piazza i played about 5 times, twice we been spawned camped either in the underground bit, or by the bridge on teh far side.
It may be rose tinted spectales, but when 4 came out, there was a certain amount of tactical nous, ideas of flanking, working together to put pressure on the other team. I never seen so much running around like a headless chicken in 3. If i try to do what they do, i die. instantly.
Another thing i noticed, is how unbalanced the game is in teams. I have had few close calls (say 7100 to 7500 in TDM or 178 to 200 in DOM), the scores are always heavily stacked in one sides favour. always.
I will still play it for half an hour here and there, but they need to.. i don't know what they need to do really.
but i do enjoy the OTT single player, its bonkers, but fun.
