Ask Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling Anything

Ask Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling Anything

Robert "FourZeroTwo" Bowling has taken to Reddit to face the internet - all of the internet - head on over Modern Warfare 3.

Though it faces pressure from at least one major challenger, there's little doubt that Modern Warfare 3 will be the 800-lb gorilla of the gaming industry when it releases this November.

Following the title's showing at this past week's E3, Infinity Ward's creative strategist Robert Bowling posted an AMA - "Ask Me Anything" - on Reddit. "I got sent a request to do an AMA on reddit," says Bowling, "so here I am. We just revealed a load of content at E3 so feel free to ask any MW3 or non-game related questions."

Naturally, the internet has obliged. The AMA was posted roughly half an hour ago, so only a few questions have been answered at this point - and while Bowling is obviously coming into this from a pro-PR point of view, he's also refreshingly frank at times.

If you'd like to see Bowling's answers for questions like "What differentiates MW3 from MW2," and "Will disabled gamers be able to fully map buttons," then head over to Reddit. Smart money says that he probably won't be answering any questions about Battlefield 3, dedicated servers or Bobby Kotick, though - at least not without stepping on a proverbial internet landmine.

I wonder if he's actually good at Bowling?

Calumon: I wonder if he gets ear ache from all the boom bangs around him?

Not to hate on COD or anything but...

Needless to say, I will not be buying this game on day one.

I just can't believe he responded.

I can't believe he answered this:

"Why should I buy MW3 instead of Battlefield 3?"

his response:

"You should be buying both because they both will be stellar games. I refuse to say one ill word of Battlefield 3 or DICE because I think they're both fantastic and am good friends with several of the guys on the team.
If you are a shooter fan, they are both fantastic games to own because of one reason. They are different.
Each do their own thing in a fantastic way and it is refreshing to have the option for both styles."

I just want to know why is isn't doing this on the IW forums across all platforms seeing that he works for IW, and yet ignores their offical forums especially the PC section.

He actually did answer questions about Battlefield and told people they should buy it because it will be an amazing game.
