All I want for Christmas is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Written by Nick Farell

Most Anticipated Christmas Release of 2011
'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’ is the most commonly searched for title awaiting release on-site which suggests that it will be the most anticipated release of the 2011 Christmas period. New site statistics released by a games comparison and marketplace website www.Playr2.com showing that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been the most frequently searched-for title.

According to the search statistics released by Playr2.com, below are the top 10 most anticipated video game releases of Quarter 4 2011 by gaming fans; according to the number of searches made for each title on-site in the past month:

1) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
2) Batman: Arkham City
3) Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
4) Assassin’s Creed Revelations
5) Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
6) Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
7) Saint’s Row: The Third
8) Football Manager 2012
9) Battlefield 3
10) PES 2012

Batman: Arkham City was a close second on the anticipated title chart, with the latest Uncharted franchise instalment also featuring. In a statement Simon Kilby, Founder of Playr2.com said that searches for video game titles yet to be released on site are a good way of gauging interest in a game.

Gaming fans are desperate to see previews or news about the titles that they’re most looking forward to being released. Quarter 4 is always a popular time for big-name releases, particularly given its proximity to Christmas, and that’s certainly the case this year with some of the year’s big name titles due for release, he said.

He added that it wasn’t surprising to see the latest instalment to Call of Duty topping the search statistics, particularly given how popular Black Ops proved to be when it was released in 2010. “People are clearly eager to find out anything they can about the title, suggesting that it may very well prove to be a huge hit, once again, upon release,” Kilby said.

Thats because it included searches such as "Modern Warfare 3 sucks", "Modern Warfare 3 is just DLC" and also "Modern Warfare 3 is going to suck Battlefield 3's D***"

I mean no wounder it's no. 1 in search.

surely ppl must be slowly geting tired of paying for the same game again and again?

if they just kept the mechanice the same but actually gave some graphics overhaul i could understand. but honestly nothing changes with that series, if you took screenshots form cod4 and compare to black ops they look like their from the same damn game.

Quoting willie:
Money Wasted 3

Modern Warfare 1 is amazing even now. So it may be actually Money Wasted 2..

Somehow, tweaktown's poll a little while back, showed Battlefield 3 to be most wanted game of 2011.


And that's out of 5600 people. Strange huh...?

How long will the single player in this one be- 2 hours? 4 hours? 6 hours?

How much more can Activision mess up the online game experience?

Has Activision finally found a way to successfully spin no real dedicated server support and no community mod support in a positive light so they can squeeze every last penny out of the public for their crap DLC?

The answer to these question and many others is I don't care.

It really does not matter how many people can be convinced that they just cannot live without the next COD re-skinned, re-hashed game that we have see over and over again.

Go peddle your crap somewhere else Activision. I'm not buying.

After it's anti-privacy/DRM shenanigans, EA can get stuffed too.

Sorry, but BF3 as far as preorders go is ranked at #3 currently. Also, after BF3 comes out and it get's a review from most sites from 9.5 to 10 or so and then the comments from users that bought it and love it...well, I predict BF3 could become the GOTY this year!

BF3 @ #9 and no Star Wars: The Old Republic or Diablo III?

WTF have you been smoking, ey?
