Yes, but this is all irrelevant until they tell us if it will be available standalone and on disc.

Well it's not all irrelevant since the world doesn't revolve around your purchasing decision and people will buy it with the game and secondly, the game is only available with the legacy edition for $80 (so essentially, for +$20).

Don't be surprised though if you see a standalone in after a year...so you'll probably be waiting a while.

I hope they include "Shipment", we had so much fun on it with some friends back then. "Crash" was great so that's one point.

Modern warfare 3 ? Ghosts? Free to play cod? Not an amazing track record for these guys. Hope they don't screw it up.

Raven Software is responsible for some of the best shooters and action games of last gem before they were absorbed into the CoD machine.

I have more fucking faith in Raven than Infinity Ward.

Nah mate, what's so edgy is you acting this is all irrelevant until they cater to your needs for a standalone. Not saying we don't want that, but this is all they have announced for now, and you'll be waiting a VERY long time for that standalone.

Awesome. I have far more interest in this than the other game. Sick of jet packs and shit. I like the way the games used to play far more than what they're doing with it now.

I love Raven, and it sucks they're not allowed to do their own stuff these days, but I am excited to try the Modern Warfare remaster.

All I'm seeing here is "developers have to do what I want! waaah, people don't like it when I say that!" Are you five? This isn't reddit.

Neversoft and Gnü-Infinity Ward(Post West and Zamp. departure) handled most of MW3. Raven only helped with DLC and UI.
Did Neversoft make THPS5?

If I'm Kotick, I'll announce the MW:R to be sold separately after a month of release of CoD:IW. Also for $40.

Weren't they supposed to be responsible for the better parts of those games? At least I think I remember reading somewhere that someone from the studio said that the fan response to their parts of COD was very positive.

That being said, give them a non-COD game to make, goddammit Activision.

Cater to my needs? Listen to yourself. The masses are out there gnashing their teeth over the fact that the remaster is being held to ransom to entice preorders for IW. It's people like you who support this underhandedness that are the cancer of gaming.

Free the shipment

With the prime discount it'll be like $60-$70 after taxes
Not bad for two games

I bet it'll be a download code for MW remaster too

Going to have to remind me as I may have been too young?


I liked that Wolfenstein reboot or sequel, seemed more ambitious during previews

I'm sure there will be a standalone to cater to everyone who feels the need to moan and whine about how edgy they are for not liking 'new' CoD and how the only good one was Call of Duty 4.

If I had to guess, seeing as what you get in the Infinite Warfare Prestige edition is a download code, I'd imagine it'd be avaliable on digital only. I bet they'd release it on digital marketplaces standalone for a ridiculous price as well (£35?).

It's similar to what Activision did with the Taken King as well anyway.

It's people like you who support this underhandedness that are the cancer of gaming.
People who say crap like this deserve to be mocked and called names. "The cancer of gaming". Wtf man.

Bunch of shills and SJWs on here anyway. Couldn't give a shit.
Evidently already do get mocked and called names. Appropriate, but also a little sad.

Ooft! Think the phrase wind your neck in springs to mind before you continue embarrassing yourself here.

You have to be a mug to buy a £80/£100 version of a game for a remaster of a 10 year old game.

Guess what? I'm a fucking mug.

MW2 next year as well please sirs.

Hoping for a seperated download code myself. I will try out infinite warfare to give it a chance but I'm not to keen on this future stuff( advanced warfare being the worst cod I've ever played and getting burnt out on blops 3 within two weeks). If I don't like it I hope I can sell it or trade it in while keeping the remaster.

"No /true/ gamer."

I'm pretty sure the same masses who want another CoD game every year are going to pick this up regardless of how it's being distributed. I mean, you're still only speaking for yourself at this point. This is the biggest gaming franchise of recent time, remember.

Yeah I post on /v/ too
