9v9 is a bit much as it is. Hopefully we see less shit maps where there is just a lot of running for no reason. Mid to small maps are what CoD was designed for, not crap like Array. I'd give previous examples but I'm stoned and it's been a while since I've played MW2 or CoD4.
I'm actually finishing up the last three levels of Prestige 15 today. My BLOPS account is terribad because I played CoD4 and MW2 on the PC, transitioning to xbox from not playing xbox since 2004 or so was a bit rough. My MW3 account should be nasty though, hoping for a 3kdr. 8) If us blades play together probably get a 10+ W/L ratio too.
Hopefully I have the money for pre-ordering the hardened addition soon as well, I just had to drop 100+ today on a new tire because mine popped yesterday. Good thing I make bank I spose. Or at least higher then minimum wage.
@ Rivera - CoD games are now designed around the Madden aspect. I'm thinking when the next one comes out next year we are going to see ranking actually matter and a huge professional scene because MLG or some other website will be integrated. We'll see actual ladders and seasons, much like football.
Kind of a shame too because IW didn't have this in mind with CoD4 imo. They were breaking new ground and the game had longevity because it was so unique. But then rather than breaking new ground every time it's stagnated now and the content can only hold our attention for about 3-12 months.
Respawn Gaming(Basically the new IW, sans the title and working for Activision) is coming out with something soon. Both them and Bungie are going to have monster FPS shooters, I'm willing to put money on this.
But that still means I'd give CoD until at least 2013-14 before it stops breaking record sales and starts going downhill. AKA Guitar Hero just with a higher climax because well, FPS > Music Games.
