But the Call of Duty studio 'has advised on narrative'; Activision clarifies publishing responsibilities
I cant wait to see how much this sells.
Sigh... This game is doomed to fail Has nothing good going for it
I think the name call of duty is a good thing going for it since any game with that name will sell millions
Looks like they havent decrappified the game yet. This is really pathetic on activisions part since this franchise is known for selling millions on PCs and Consoles. BTW i won the bet because i predicted that they wouldnt announce a Call of Duty for the 3DS and i was right.
Yeah, well, who thought Treyarch was actually being consulted on this? I know I certainly didn't.
Not a surprise, but definitely a disappointment. It boggles the mind how they would completely leave game play development on a game with the potential to greatly increase the install base of the PS Vita and further expand the call of duty franchise to a studio that did not originally create the franchise in the first place. I'm going to reserve my judgement on the game until it is finished and released, but the lack of support from the main Call of Duty studio does not inspire confidence.
Not only that but the game is being made/butchered by the same company that took a steamy dump on the resistance franchise with resistance:bs. I am so worried about this title. i have essentially zero faith in this game. Also guess this rules out the possibility of any type of interaction between blops 2 and decrapified.
I wonder if it was just a coincidence that the game had an abbreviation of BS.
It isn't the job of 3rd party to increase the install base. That is the manufacture of the console to do that. This is just confirming what we already saw. These companies are not all in on the Vita. It shows us a couple of things. You have B-rated companies doing these high profile games and look at Resistance and now COD by the same company. These companies are like your bench teams in a game. It is cheaper to use them and on top of that Vita came at a time where those companies see the current systems install base and future next-gen systems to focuse on.
i wouldnt call the developers that did burning skies a b rated company. they're far below that.
Developers treat Sony handhelds like Nintendo consoles. Except for the fact that Treyarch is overseeing Wii development. Quite sad to constantly see publishers making things to cash in on these systems. One day Nintendo consoles and Sony handhelds will be treated how they should be. Developers should stop making shoddy mini versions of games on other systems and start treating these how they should be. If this tanks then Activision (who refuse to acknowledge it anyway) will blame the system rather than themselves. Same as Wii: put the effort in and you'll be rewarded! Its funny how those that treat these systems how they should be treated get sales isn't it?
When I first heard about a COD game being developed for the Vita - I thought, "Wow, Vita has it made, because Treyarch is great with control implementation!" I guess they're too busy to be developing the Vita version of COD, so let's hope that whoever's at the helm (developing the Vita version), does a decent enough job.
I'm sure if activision had asked treyarch to do it they'd have done it; look at Criterion games; relatively small studio at least in comparision in guilford- they insisted apparently on also making the vita version and have according to people that have played it and seen it in action got pretty much an identical (slightly downgraded textures etc) version of the ps3 game... and thrown in extra minigames etc that use the touch screen if you want to play them yet Treyarch a fairly large developer with I'm sure alot more funding couldn't do a vita version of black ops 2?... no they either couldn't be bothered or Activision wanted to save the cash-likely the later me thinks or a combination of the 2.
yeah, whatever.. just be sure to include the zombies mode plz, thx.
Vita's system seller right here, them bundles will fly off shelves lol
LMAO you forgot /s to indicate u were being sarcatic. lol Funny no less.
The only way this game will fly off the shelves is if there's an earthquake.
this game is gonna be a total mess. Is not using the same engine, the game's being made by a 3rd rate developer and is not even 60 frames. What is the point of calling it a Call of Duty game when this will be nothing more than some random generic shooter?
Flop of the year
Can't wait to play this game Online, yes FREE ONLINE
Game is being sent to die
This could end badly....
This game is going to be disappointing.. I dont care cuz i was never in the slightest bit interested in it but alot of other ppl are... Nihilistic made resistance a mediocre game @ best & this will be no different.. Killzone on vita will destroy both
Assassins Creed will do the vita justice I'm sure- actually Ubisoft as a 3rd party developer are very good on providing support for pretty much all consoles; hell even EA and the new nfs etc has very good vita games coming out and usually there big franchises were done properly on vita so really it's just activision finding the cheap way out-if I were sony I'd be fucking angry at activision because I don't believe they haven't had to put money into it's development etc to secure the title?
I think the blame is all on Sony. They wanted COD on the vita to sell the handheld and im sure Activision didnt care. Sony prob said they would get a dev and have them make it and Act prob said whatever as long as we get money and this is the result. Its the same dev that ruined Sony's big fps franchise so its def Sony who got this ball rolling. If the maker of the damn handheld doesnt care about it enough to get a half decent dev and half decent game why should anyone else. Spit out ports and cheap ass quick cash ins and people will buy it on the name alone. AC does look nifty though. Thank goodness theres devs who will take a chance (like Ubisoft with AC on vita and Capcom with RE on 3ds). The rest just throw last gen ports as good as they may be (p4, ninja gaiden, ffx on vita and tales on 3ds). I think this couldve been the game to sell vitas if they made a real effort. 6v6 mp, zombies, seperate campaign and new maps. Oh well.
ever since this game was announced with no info the "jaws theme" backround music surrounding it has been getting louder... and louder... dadum dadum... ^_^;
