CoDMW3 Question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So, I have a question for you guys.

The interns have been working their butts off lately so, my boss and I decided to get a couple games for the office that we normally wouldn't.

Call Of Duty MW3 happens to be one of them.

I have all 3 platforms here and I know they all have all 3 as well, including PC's obviously...

I've read some reviews and I'm confused a bit about the "hardened edition" in comparison to the regular edition.

What's the overall difference between the Xbox Version, Playstation version and the PC version?

Is it possible to get the "elite version" on the PS3 or?

Thanks much.

Sorry if this was already asked, searched twice and typically it was just you guys going back and forth about BF3 and CODMW3...Not too much help there

I can't answer all of this, because I don't know about the various editions of the games.

There will be very little difference between the PS3 and X360 versions. There may be some minor graphical differences, but nothing major. The online experience will be different compared to that of the PC, possibly more stable as the consoles use matchmaking instead of dedicated servers.

The PC version might have some enhanced graphics options and will likely have a smaller online community than the X360 version. The online experience will be different as the PC MW3 uses dedicated servers *i think*

If you are buying it for guys in your office, the X360 platform will likely be the one that sells most.

For in the office playing - I would grab a console, prolly x360 because IMO its better (more skilled players than ps3 scrubs).

Though, if off-work game time I would grab the PC version if dedicated servers decide to really exist in MW3. Hopefully they will.

Still wondering whether to grab Skyrim+mw3 on release dates...or wait a few more days till reviews and QQ pops up.

Yeah, everyone has been saying Xbox even though the graphics won't be as good.

Going to get them all the Hardened Editions then, Tyvm for the help everyone.

Get Call of Duty 4, It is a far superior game and is probably one of the best so far.

He wants to get his guys a gift for working hard.

Nothing says 'I appreciate all your hard work' like a four-year old game that you can pick up for less than $10

True. Not to mention CoD4 looks quite dated, not ancient, but still dated.

I'd also go via xBox, it just seems to have a better, more competitive base than the PS3 does. :\\

Pretty much, this

They've been busting ass and the worst part of our season is just starting so..."A good wife is a happy life"...Good interns make for less stress and happy little elves!

Anyway, I did go for the hardened edition and I'm actually thinking of throwing Skryim in there as well...

I didn't have to replace anything in Dell's farm this go around so, we actually have a huge deficit to spend.

Already got them all new cases...Bla bla bla...

Honestly, CODMW3 Hardened, seems like the best deal out there so far...ACR is nice, the statue of Ezio is actually pretty legit...

Skyrim is really the only hard one to justify b/c of how expensive that statue is...and it's not like you're getting any extra content...

Compared to Hardened etc.

I always kinda think that FPS's have the most cross appeal. Not everyone will go for a game like Skyrim or AC. Most people will give an FPS a bash.
