The rule is always the same: if the developers create a game using one platform as the lead, buy the game for that platform.
But for most titles these days, it doesn't matter much because designers make games for both platforms simultaneously. This is the case with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 , as noted by Infinity Ward boss Robert Bowling. On his Twitter page , Bowling confirmed what we already guessed: that there is no lead platform for MW3:
"We don't have lead platforms, we develop each version alongside each other. Xbox 360 is running at same as PS3."
Only the PC version can receive "unique optimizations," so according to this guy, it really doesn't matter which console version you choose. He also dismissed any talk of DLC right now as it's far too early (and we agree), and added that if you ever see a video labeled "beta," it's fake. No such thing exists just yet, although maybe it will at some point…
There are small hitches and shortcomings from Black Ops that we'd like to see erased in MW3. Regardless of lead platforms, such issues should be addressed, yes?
