Modern Warfare 3 Trailer: Watch And Learn, N00b

It's the biggest game of the year, so it's only right that it has one of the best commercials, too. Totally logical.

A new live action trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has crazy high production values and a fair amount of comic relief. It's The Vet vs. The N00b, and we're fairly certain that NBA star Dwight Howard has a brief cameo right at the end. It's all about learning the ropes of the biggest shooter in the universe; wouldn't it be nice if the vets actually taught the newcomers?

Yes, I know it's all about making fun of someone else. I get it.

A whole lot of retailers are doing midnight launches for MW3; will you be attending one of them? We'll be delivering our review along with just about every other gaming source on earth, although I'm sure the CoD fans really don't give a flying fig about review scores. At any rate, this is a very cool commercial, don't you think?

Saw this yesterday. Had me chuckling.

Classic differences between a noob and a veteran, they nailed it with that ad. I enjoyed it very much.

It's a shame, maybe months from now hackers r going to try to find away to screw up the multiplayer and ruin the game for the legit players.

@AlexanderTH3GR8

That's inevitable though. A lot of people have cheated to get on the scoreboards, and I'm sure they will try to find a way to cheat in multiplayer against players as well. Let's just hope they deal with them quickly.

I'm pretty psyched about this game. I know many on PSX aren't fans of Call of Duty, but I plan to pour many hours into this game (and Assassin's Creed xD)
Great commercial IMO.

Me too, love CoD and BF. I will be getting this game and enjoying it. Been playing MW2 and having fun. It's been a long time so seeing all the maps again was a little nostalgic. I am actually getting my copy tonight at midnight. Should be good!

This commercial actually made me interested in CoD again. Nice work. Funny stuff, got a bit of a chuckle out of me.

Since I found a retailer selling it $40 AUD cheaper than RRP, I'm very tempted.

I always like COD's FPS mechanics, smooth, responsive. Felt like it was just lacking in content or variety. I'm kinda hoping MW3 will remedy that.

Black Ops was a good step in the right direction for bringing something a little new to CoD. Judging from previews though... not gonna hold my breath for MW3, many sources said it's just a glorified MW2 map pack.

That's just the multiplayer though. I'm holding out for a campaign review. Let us know if the story holds up Ben! Or Arnold.

Not being an FPS fan, I enjoy COD's commercials much more than the games themselves. Although I liked the Black Ops one more (mainly for the better song), this one was really good as well. I especially loved the part where they're in the plane. Just all around fantastic.

I thought the advert was entertaining but we all know the multiplayer isn't like that at all unfortunately.

It's still a cheap bin SP purchase for me.

The trailer makes me really want to get this....

...once the price drops to 2/3 after 18 months!!!

Since I'm only going to be playing SP mode anyway, and I've already got a 800 to 900 game backlog now, I can certainly wait Anti-vision out again,....& again,....& again.

This is ridiculous because if you actually tried asking someone online how to be a better player, they would most likely tell you to f**k off.

Not if you get to know a good player first, maybe get to be on their team etc.
I've had a lot of good experiences in that respect. Admittedly that's mostly from PC gaming before I got the ps3, it seems there's not the same kind of "guild/clan" thing going in the console world, but still, if you play a game enough and get some familiar faces in there, chances are good that they will share some tricks and secrets given the chance.

Why? Probably cause most people love to get cred for how good they are and how much they know. :)

Not at all true. If you asked me or most any other CoD Vet they will be happy to share some knowledge, if not mostly for a bit more of a challenge ;) And of course to explain how camping tends to hinder quick rank progression. Unless it's FFA, then I'd prob. just tell you about a "secret passageway" behind this building... just stare at the corner for a few seconds BOOM! :)

Sigh, I WOULD be at that midnight launch, probably with the hardened edition like I did with any other CoD (excl WaW) this gen but..I just don't have the money anymore to just spill on this game every year, bills and other stuff take priority, and I DAMN know for sure, I'm going to get uncharted 3 before I get MW3..so it might be awhile.

It was an awesome commercial but im only going to buy it if the real gameplay is at the same quality...actually its more like Battlefield 3 than MW3 with all the explosives and destruction...

Hmmm........I guess Activision can afford to get famous people for their ads.

Though it hardly show any gameplay like it always do and always will, it certainly is one awesome ad.

I was good with the I'm not going to buy CoD again attitude(even though I only ever bought Black Ops), but this trailer gets me psyched for the game.
Luckily I have more important things to do, so no CoD for me.
I also kind of want to go paint balling with my friends now, even though I never played paint ball before...

I used to play paintball a lot a few years ago. Although the paintballs feel like someone threw a rock at you as hard as they could, your legs will feel the most pain later with the sudden starting and stopping while running for the next bunker.

I luvd it, made me remember that comic of the MGS4 manual about the mp, sucks that the real interaction between players on CoD isn't that cool.

You always learn a new insult there.

Hilarious and awesome commercial all around. I still hate how they can get away with not showing any gameplay whatsoever and still making new people rush out and buy it. But whatever.

Oh, btw, just because this LIVE-ACTION/NOT GAMEPLAY trailer was cool doesn't mean I'm going to go out and buy the game now. And I don't understand why a huge amount of others who commented on this article are doing just that. Makes no sense IMO, but once again, whatever.

Commercial wasn't bad, but as many have already stated, that's not what the game is like.

I just don't have stomach for CoD anymore. I know all shooters are really the same thing, shoot, reload, pick up gun, etc.

But CoD has turned into this perk infested, killstreak nightmare.
You don't even have to aim anymore.
There's something wrong when I'm playing a game, and some guy can toss a knife, from half the map away, it hits a pipe, bounces on the floor, touches my foot and I die.
Or jumps off a building, spins 6 times, doesn't have to aim, just hits the fire button and a hugely compensated auto-aim assist hands him the kill.
The CoD games now spoon feed players kills and make them think they're FPS juggernauts.
But they peal other shooters that don't do all the work for them, and they quit, saying the game sucks.

At this point. Call of Duty is for Battlefield and other Real Shooter drop-outs. Who can't soar with the eagles, so they go peck sh*t with the chickens.
