The Call of Duty Experience (CoD XP): more info now available!
Also, patch update 1.11 for the Xbox 360 and PC released and MW3 current pre-order stats. What’s the sitrep, over?
Patch 1.11: Xbox 360
It may be so odd, but the new patch, Title Update 11 for Xbox 360 only features 2 updates. Yes, two! This IS odd.
Hey 360 gamers,
We are listening to you and we’ve been busy working on updates based on feedback from the community. We have already deployed a number of updates, and there will be many more to come. Stay tuned right here for all the latest info.
LIVE FIXES 7/12/11 (Title Update 11)
- Security Updates.
- Search and Destroy audio tweaks for planting and defusing.
There may be a reason why there are only two updates, if there aren’t any security updates, it would be a hotfix. But since security is very important, it couldn’t be just put in a hotfix. Probably.
See all the updates on the forum thread here.
While the Xbox patch only had two updates, this title update features more.

MW3 v. BF3: Pre-Orders
As the competition heated up since http://www.ModernWarfare3.com served as a domain to BF3’s website and people thought it was owned by EA (actually owned by a BF3 fanboy), this competition is serious: pre-orders.
According to VGChartz, the tales of the war in Afghanistan ****** **** the juggernauts of New York and Europe in this week’s pre-orders charts. I promise to keep you up-to-date every week. If the info is there.
So what did BF3 do to MW3?
If you can’t see, green represents MW3 and red represents BF3.
MW3 v BF3: Xbox 360 MW3 actually got more than twice the number of pre-orders than BF3 in the Xbox 360 pre-orders, with BF3 at 240,000 (approx.) and MW3 at 500,000 (approx.). Sounds good.
MW3 v BF3: PS3 MW3, this time, got less than double of pre-orders than BF3, but it is still a good result. MW3: 220,000 (approx.), BF3: 130,000 (approx.).
And actually the most pre-ordered game right now is Gears of War 3.
