BrooklynKing - Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified – A Reason for Concern?

Should we be excited about Call of Duty on Vita, or have Sony and Activision left the game in the hands of a less than steller developer? (Activision, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, PS Vita, Sony)

My thoughts: COD Vita will be a crappy game, but Vita doesn't need that one game to be a great platform. It has a brilliant future with AC,Killzone, LBP, Ratchet, PS All-Stars, Soul Sacrifice, NFS, etc. ahead. Just a matter of time till it gets a bigger game library.

cant agree more, its like GT for PSP, they could use theyre time and resources for main platform. I can see vita fit perfectly with new LBP type games.. how it is using camera function, arcade, fun & short gameplay etc..

The Vita has so much potential but unless Sony market it in the right way and get the games on there that people want to play, and actually make them experiences worthy of the hardware then Sony cannot really complain when sales are not what they hoped.

Exactly the Vita has already a good library and more are coming. Not gonna be upset if this one isn't great havent cared about this franchise since MW2. The thing I am waiting on is the first good FPS on the Vita and hopefully Killzone will be it.

Still can't get over Acti wanting $50 for this thing. If they were smart, they go All zombies for the Vita port. Who's really looking forward to 4 on 4 mp anyway?

See their twitter for Q&A.

we seen like 10 sec gameplay of killzone merc so we know what the vita can do but this game Call Of Duty declassified just looks like a PS2 game.

So do you guys think this may just be a ploy on Sony's part to get a household name on the Vita to shift some additional hardware and then maybe next year we will get a full blown Call of Duty that will interact with the console versions in the way I explained in the article?

It'll happen probably like the one-off PSP game that they made. People play it, reviews come out detailing its sub standard, people stop buying it, Activision thinks it's the platforms fault and then never invests in making another Vita CoD again.

Unfortunately I think they might have just thrown the cod name to a mediocre developer like Nihilistic because they think the name will be enough to sell. Also maybe they figure that since cod, and also resistance, already had the formulas for the games already made it wouldn't be to hard to make spin offs for them, but it seems that Nihilistic isn't quite that competent.

If they do plan on releasing another cod, wouldn't this one discourage people from buying another on the system? Doesn't seem like that good of an idea. I really think Sony is handling this wrong, this could have been a big deal for the Vita. Hopefully AC and Killzone will really move some units in the west.

Edit: Wow just found out the hostile mode is single player, not co op. Also, there are only six maps wtf. This is such a lackluster job, seems really bad. I think the only thing they should do here is delay it and get those zombies in there, unfortunately either activision or sony won't greenlight it.

Well they changed the graphics and it's 5v5 now. I guess they heard those complains and are ajusting themselves.

Gimme a good survival or zombies...and I might give it a try

With a good zombie mode I would probably purchase it.

It's not coming out this year anymore. So they should be able to add Zombies to the game.

Seriously, "A reason for concern"?? Unless you're a stock holder and have an investment in this games financial success then who gives a sh-t!!?? If the game sucks, it sucks and you don't buy it, not the end of the world.

My concern isn't just about the quality of this game, it's also about Sonys attitude towards the series, the hardware and the consumer. The Call of Duty franchise deserves respect for what it has done for First Person Shooters and competitive online gaming. Sony need to respect the hardware enough to use capable developers that can make great games and they need to respect the consumer enough not to just slap the Call of Duty name on a product and expect it to sell despite the quality. Read between the lines of the article. It's not just about one game, it's about a whole lot more.
