The key issue for anyone coming from PC FPs games is how bad the controller is compared to a mouse and keyboard setup. Im also an ex PC gamer (played the Quake/UT series very heavily many years ago) and I have to say its extremely tempting to use the xim3 to facilitate a mouse/kb which provides a MAJOR advantage in the right hands ie hardened PC FPS players. But I cannot justify the price for a xim3 and I've got used to the inferior controller but mainly.. I'd rather beat people on equal terms. There will also always be a measurable skill difference between console and PC, PC has a more hardcore gaming crowd whereas consoles have a huge casual gaming population. However I quite like the sheer number of noobs on consoles, easy pickings. Just get used to the controller and readjust your game accordingly and you'll see.

I think the problem is from the controller and the fan base as well. Because of casual players are extremely crowded in this game, the good players have the ability to just camp their ass off to get a good game. and from the fact that they are already familiar with the controller and sensitivity, others will have a hard time just to zero-in the camper and fight back. I always feel like i need a sec and a half just to identify where the campers is and then struggling to find the moment to stop moving the stick. in that 1,5 secs, you are already dead.

Played MW3 mostly for Xbox but have played a lot for pc due to my friend buying it and I borrowed it for a long period. I cannot agree with most of what you said due to the fact you are implying that the pc doesn't have the same problems as well with how people play.
EDIT: also you lose points in playing cod on pc period due to there being to many better shooters to play for pc if you have the means to do so. cod is for consoles not pc in terms of if your going to choose to play a shooter on pc and have the abilitly to do so then I would not play cod. I would sooner go back to CS 1.5 than play cod for pc.

I am not trying to say that my experience must be the same for everyone, i know that.
I have been playing PC shooters for over 10 years, you can start that with Quake back in the day before i started to go all the way with Counter Strike series (start with v1.1)
My experience on PC with MW3 is totally different from what i experienced on XBOX. I don't say that there are campers on PC but it doesn't happen all the time. But on XBOX, people camp every game i play. My whole strategy for each maps are based on the way the game flow on PC, but on Consoles, people will just duck in somewhere and hope for a guy running around looking for heat spot of the map and just blow the head off.
And even with Campers , i don't have a hard time to deal with them at all, maybe not you who play on consoles for most of the time and not too familiar with the mouse, With the mouse in less than half of a second, a good PC gamers can zero you in and ready to fire back. With some good Rifle like the M4A1 or ACR, it makes the deal even easier.
Talking about FPS on PC, i play the whole lot of them, not only COD, i got BF3, BF2, BFBC2 , ARMA 2, AA3 (America Army 3) , CS 1.6 , CSS, CSGO... even with games you probably never heard before.
and BTW, they don't run CS 1.5 , it is 1.6 before Valve makes the whole deal on Source my friend. , good old cs_italy i still love.

I am an Xbox guy. I played COD:4 on the PC and console, but that is the only COD game that ever did on the PC.
I played it with.....a controller. Believe it or not, I did pretty well. The PC just moves better because of the "dead zone" that consoles have for controllers, not to mention the connection issues were non existent. Even if you were to get the XIM, the one thing people don't realize until they start using it, is the dead zone will mess with the mouse as well. The only advantage is that you can amp your sensitivity up 10, which helps negate the effects of the DZ and has the added bonus of added aim assist.

i don't belive COD 4 support Controller... But anyway, you are a PC gamer doesn't mean you can't do well with the controller.
It is just me who have been playing with PC since i was a kid and had not touched the controller until very recently.
I am just expressing my own experience from a view of a hardcore PC gamer.

i too started playing on PC and switched to Xbox. this was during MW2 however.
one thing i noticed from both communities. they both had problems with campers, they both had problems with noobtubers. but the PC was worse by far with the problem of hackers. on Xbox i run into the odd modded controller but they can be beaten as it only affects there fire rate. but the amount of aimbots and wallhacks i saw on pc was unreal.
