How many hours have Wii owners played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? Modern Warfare 3 Hours Report

It's not even shiny, but I even noticed it online!
Coffee Beans
     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 released for the Wii on November 8, 2011 with a MSRP of $49.99. The game was developed by Infinity Ward/Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision, but ported to the Wii by a team at Treyarch.
     The game received an ESRB rating of "Mature" with "Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language" listed as content for gamers and parents to be aware of.

     How many more U.S. Wii owners have reported playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in the last 7 months. Also, how many more "Total Hours" of game-play have been reported since the first data report? Brew yourself some coffee, and let's take a look!

Data shown in image is for U.S. Wii owners only that have reported data, not world-wide.
The Brew
     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 now has approximately 45,137 U.S. Wii owners that have reported data through the Nintendo Channel, with 244 days reported. The game debuted with 3,895 U.S. Wii owners reporting data, so it now has 41,242 more players reporting data over its debut.
     Modern Warfare 3's average play-time per day/session reported is now 2 hours 37 minutes, which is a half hour decrease over the debut average. The game's average "Per person" now of 48 hours 13 minutes is an increase of 31 hours 50 minutes since the debut average.
     The game's current 2,174,909 Total Hours of reported game-play is an increase of more than 2 million hours over the last 7 months; 2,111,073 "Total Hours" since the last report, to be exact.
Me at "work" in online multiplayer, where most hours are probably spent.
     What about the consumers and critics? How have they rated the game?
     Modern Warfare 3 has a "professional" review score average of 69.25%, based on 12 reviews on GameRankings.com; while the game has a customer review score average of 84.28%, based on 56 reviews on Amazon.com.


Caffeinated Thoughts
     I am below the average hours reported "Per person", but I did play a few matches last night online and they all ran well. The online multiplayer did require an update before I could play it though, but the patch took only about 30 seconds to download.
     As I was running around in one of the matches last night, I ran across another "Hot Coffee" machine that you see in the first image of this story. As I was looking at it though, an opponent decided that I had looked long enough and apparently wanted their own coffee from it, so my time was short lived (literally) at the coffee machine.


     If you missed my "Hot Coffee in Modern Warfare 3? Yes Please!" post from December, here is the video for it that shows where you can find a "Hot Coffee" machine in the single-player campaign:



     While Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has a good amount of hours reported for a third party game on the Wii, it currently has fewer hours reported than Black Ops did only 4.5 months after it originally released for the Wii.
     Overall though, I think it's pretty clear from the reported game-play hours that the online multiplayer is a big aspect of the game. Wii owners do seem to still be enjoying the game, as I didn't have any issues last night and today quickly getting into matches, and never had a host migration issue either.


Questions
     Have any of you been playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 regularly on the Wii in the last few months? If you are playing it regularly, do you know how many hours you have reported for the game?
     Feel free to add my ally/friend code to your list, 0359-9573-5494, and/or leave your code in the comments below and I will add it to my list later tonight.

If any of you are interested in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, you can see the different versions for the game linked below:

  1. Not on the Wii, unfortunately. I picked it up cheap for 360 awhile back. I played it a ton around Christmas, but not much since though my son still plays this and Black Ops a ton

  2. "I played it a ton around Christmas, but not much since..."
    That's exactly how I was with Modern Warfare 3, but I already leveled up at least another 5 spots today. :)

    It actually took me a while to remember how to activate my "Strike Packages" and I was like, "I have hit every single button on this controller, how did I forget this?!"

    It's because on the Wii, it's a 2 button combo with my current Wii Remote and Nunchuk settings. I should probably look at changing those if possible...

    Thanks for stopping by!

    P.S.
    Cave in...the pressure is too much!

  3. Haha, as you know, this isn't my kind of game - I didn't play any version of this one anywhere.

    I do wish Activision put a little more resources behind the franchise on the Wii. There is an appetite for the series and while I don't think anyone expects the bank-breaking budgets on the big consoles (if for no other reason the Wii team wouldn't need to be as big as the HD teams), there's no reason that the quality should suffer like it does.

    I'm going to be really interested to see how Activision approaches the Wii U development.

    You know, I think they offer a few digitally downloaded versions now...

    On the, "I do wish Activision put a little more resources behind the franchise on the Wii.

    Actually, Activision has allowed Treyarch to support the Wii as I have written about before. The dispute with the Call of Duty Wii games came from Infinity Ward, not from Activision. For whatever reason, Infinity Ward didn't want Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (or think it could be made) on the Wii. Treyarch has ported/developed every Call of Duty game for the Wii, and they have all been published by Activision.
    Each game seems to have seen improvements over the previous versions, and I wouldn't really say the quality suffers from lack of trying, but perhaps from the Wii's limitations itself.

    "I'm going to be really interested to see how Activision approaches the Wii U development."
    Hopefully, we will be finding out here very soon.

    Thanks for the comment/feedback!

  5. ROFL - and now you're trying to get ME to buy Steam games!? :) Oh how the fates have circled around on that one.

  7. Haha! I told Mrs. Coffee last night as she was leaving and I was "informing" her about the sales, "Don't blame me, blame Chalgyr and Robert. They kept harassing me about Steam. Then Chalgyr did a giveaway, and I won Cogs so I had to setup an account."

    She saw me playing Cogs last week, so she knew what it was.

    Her response? *Raised shaking fist into the air, "Those guys!"

  8. Hey Mr. Coffee - heads up! I linked to this article on our site - http://www.wiinintendo.net/2012/07/17/coffee-with-games-call-of-duty-modern-warfare-3/.

    I have never played Modern Warfare 3 on the Wii. While I have played the war games before, I just have never really gotten into the genre. Of course, it's hard for me to pass up a good FPS!

    Thanks again for another great article! - Oh and I'm still trying to decide on purchasing Punch-Out after reading your post....kinda difficult with the Steam Summer Sale going on... =D

  9. "Oh and I'm still trying to decide on purchasing Punch-Out after reading your post....kinda difficult with the Steam Summer Sale going on... =D"

    Haha! Not sure if you saw my tweets about Mrs. Coffee playing Punch-Out!! last week, but it was pretty fun to watch/listen to the matches.

    As for the Steam Summer Sale...I know exactly what you're talking about. I have a game in my "Cart" right now.

  10. The PS3 manages were extremely sensitive, which made for a fulfilling game play experience, but I recommended the laptop key pad and mouse combination.

  11. where are you getting these numbers from because this seem to be really wrong and faults. codbo sold 5million on wii and your trying to tell us that mw3 a bigger game sold 50,000? please back up the story with some hard facts and proof on that, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The image shows the official numbers reported on Wii systems. Black Ops Wii sold 5 million on the Wii? World-wide? I didn't realize any Call of Duty Wii game had sold more than 2 million copies, as a matter of fact only two more than a million that I can recall, I THINK.

    I have done data stories on Black Ops as well, you can see the latest one here: http://www.coffeewithgames.com/2012/06/zombies-dominating-wii-call-of-duty.html

    The number reported in the stories are for U.S. Wii players only, not world-wide, and the numbers reflect only U.S. Wii owners that report data through the Nintendo Channel, which is why the image says, "Nintendo Channel Data" above the numbers shown.

    Thanks for stopping by, hope that helps clear it up.

    ReplyDelete
  13. LOL i asked for real proof. your source is a image you made? are you joking? get real.

    you did not provide any proof at all. show me the source for the numbers.

    The first week Black Ops was out it sold Wii: 84,540 sold on wii. So says Treyarch and can be backed up by Eurocom. I am not sure where you get these crazy numbers but they are in no way true.

    the numbers you listed are not official numbers in any way shape or form.

    totally wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The data in the image is from the Nintendo Channel. If you own a Wii, you can download the Nintendo Channel, or in newer Wii systems I believe it is pre-installed. The data that is shown is for Wii owners that have reported data, not all Wii owners that have played the game. If you skimmed it, you probably missed the repeated "reported" parts, not "played" and not "total sales".

    It's even under the image for you, "not world-wide", if you were somehow thinking this was sales for the game...again, it's not.

    "How many more U.S. Wii owners have reported..."
    "Also, how many more "Total Hours" of game-play have beenreported..."
    "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 now has approximately 45,137 U.S. Wii owners that have reported data through the Nintendo Channel..."
    "Data shown in image is for U.S. Wii owners only that have reported data..."

    If you don't report the data, it won't show up.

    This isn't showing official sales numbers, or sales guesses like some sites. This is about the officially reported game-play data through the Nintendo Channel..."Nintendo Channel Data"

    ReplyDelete
  15. You still have not proven the numbers to said.

    title of this page is how many hours have wii owners played call of duty modern warfare 3 not USA players
    how many wii owners
    NOT US players. You said US however the stats are on North America which last time i checked is more then just US. while Nintendo might have done there part right YOU sir did not.

    no where did you state that these are for NA only.

    The Brew
    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 now has approximately 45,137 U.S. Wii owners that have reported data through the Nintendo Channel, with 244 days reported. The game debuted with 3,895 U.S. Wii owners reporting data, so it now has 41,242 more players reporting data over its debut.

    The game's current 2,174,909 Total Hours of reported game-play is an increase of more than 2 million hours over the last 7 months; 2,111,073 "Total Hours" since the last report, to be exact.

    YOU SAID " Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 now has approximately 45,137 U.S. Wii " FAULTS and WRONG. that is NA NOT USA NA covers mexico canada usa and many other places all within NA.
    sorry but getting the facts right matter.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sorry, but the Nintendo Channel is separated by country, not region. You can do it by Canada, U.S., Mexico, etc.

    The fact is, this data is for U.S. Wii owners, not world-wide, not North American. Have you missed the comments from our Canadian reader, where he posts up Canada's stats on the games in some posts as well?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Dude, chill. As Coffee says below, it's by COUNTRY. If you are just here to troll, get off the internet and go play an Ouya.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Just because someone wants to make sure you get the facts right does not mean they are trolling.

    It says US when the facts are for NA not a country.

    Get your facts right !!!!!

    You clearly put the wrong facts out there and this is where most real journalist would say ops you are right sorry about that we will fix that ASAP. But you are standing by what are clearly mistakes in your article.

    Get the facts right because they matter.

    ReplyDelete
  19. So, do you have different numbers for the U.S. than what is reported here? I may have changed my settings last year when checking a few games in Canada, and not realized it.

    Are you saying all the numbers shown/reported are for North America and that is all that shows up, and that there are not individual numbers for specific countries like the U.S., Canada, and Mexico?

    "You clearly put the wrong facts out there and this is where most real journalist..."
    Haha, don't claim to be a journalist, as I don't have a journalism degree. As for the "facts" you haven't presented any facts, just your own opinion that these aren't right?

    Again, have you missed the comments about the Canadian data being different from what I report here?

    So, if the data I'm showing is for all of North America I must be using a different setting?
    See stories with Canadian stats in the comments:

  20. Your info above says these stats are for US. They are NOT for US they are for NA which covers canada mexico USA .
    your info is incorrect it says states for US these states are NOT for the US but for NA.

    this is where you say sorry for getting it wrong sorry for not correcting it and sorry for not listening to the feedback.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Are you missing the questions I'm asking?


    There are stats reported for games in Canada, U.S., and Mexico, etc.


    If you clicked the Rayman Origins link, you can see Dexter reports Canada's stats for the game as:
    "Canadian data
    12,199 hours 6,551 times Per Person: 11 hrs 18 min 6.07 times
    That works out to around 1,079 Canadian Wii owners reporting data or 8.9% of the US total."


    The data I showed for the game was:
    "123,649 hours, 62,143 times
