Black Ops 2 Scooped Up, But PC Scene Appears To Be Lacking

Arguably one of the most anticipated releases of 2012, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is Treyarch’s second entry into Black Ops series, and so far things are looking great. The game has already made $500 million after just one day of sales, and that’s not including all digital pre-orders and purchases. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC)

Well unlike console gamers they have alot more shooters on pc, and some of those shooters are still supported by devs or community. Pc gamers that find a shooter they love dont need to find a new game when the game they have been enjoying still has new content and great online community.

If a console gamer wants that kind of experience they have to buy the sequel every year

but the pc version is 1920x1080 with 16x aa and dx11

the console version is 1024x600 with jaggies everywhere, low res awful textures, muddy, hideous blur filters, awful connectivity and all around an inferior version

it takes me less than 30 sec to get in a game on pc

just because more people are playing on console doesn't allude to quality in any way

the pc version is far and away superior to the console version in every way, shape and form, like all games that appear on all platforms, the pc version shines immensely, the console versions are a pale shadow!

way more people eat hotdogs than filet mignon, but hotdogs are just lips and a$$holes

enjoy your hot dogs!

I love PC gaming as much as the next guy or gal, but jeez, cut the sensationalist nonsense, 'kay?

The PC version of a game isn't always necessarily better than it's console brethren. Hell, look at the terrible port of Darksiders 2 on the PC recently. 007 Legends was another cash-in lazy port job on PC. Dark Souls was another one. And this is nothing new, it's been happening for ages.

And really, people don't play CoD for the graphics, they play it for the gameplay. If someone didn't like CoD before, I doubt they'd be enticed to try the PC version, which even on max settings is still average par on the PC realm when it comes to visuals.

Dude dont make us PC gamers look bad.

I know my friends and I didnt get Blops 2 coz we're still playing BF3 with all the dlc's and waiting for the upcoming Aftermath. Also along with that I'm too busy with GW2, Firefall and Planetside 2 is releasing in 1 day.

No need to get this when they would be playing PlanetSide 2 instead.

planetside 2 is a big failure....cant believe i waited months for te beta just to wait an hour to finally play it and delete it after 20min.

BF3 is still the best and waiting also for hawke which is miles better than planetside 2

I won't get Call of Duty on PC because it just seems like the type of game that will be completely exploited by glitchers and hackers on PC. Battlefield started to get that way and I quit playing that as well. But just the general maturity level of most Call of Duty players leads me to believe that PC Call of Duty would just be a complete waste of money. I did however just buy it for the Wii U, hopefully it plays well on the Wii U, but for PC I'll stick to BF or CS for shooter, but I don't play shooters to much on PC as I enjoy playing games like Skyrim, Fallout, GTA IV, and Witcher 2 on PC and soon Far Cry 3, can't wait for that one!

Honestly, there are games on PC that are free and much better than this. Blacklight Retribution, Quake LIVE, Gotham City Imposters, Planetside 2 in a day, and TF2.

61,000 PC gamers playing blops 2 lol

61,000 that's Team Fortress 2 dam near at any time of the day on Steam and TF2 is like 5 years old!

PC Gamers are just NOT interested in Call of Duty especially seeing how we have lots and lots of Free 2 Play games that are TOTALLY BETTER than Black Ops 2!

Planetside 2 (New Conglomerate 4 Life) which made BF3 irrelevant on the PC is the best thing going along with Firefall and the upcoming Hawken plus many many other twitch and RTS/FPS games like Tribes:Ascend and Natural Selection 2!

And as Previously mentioned Team Fortress 2 has a large community even after 5 years! Lots and Lots of FPS on the PC but good thing the PC has so many Gamers cause if it didn't then Blops2 PC would have no community!

If you game specifically on PC and PC only, then it's a waste of money. It's currently £40 on Steam, then you have all the DLC that's around £12 each and you'll get 3 DLC packs so that's an extra £36 on top of that. Then it'll be buggy and hacked and full of exploits and Treyarch won't care because they're already off working on the next BLOPS game. So you've spent this money, it's tough to play and frustrating because people hack it and then a year goes by and MW4 is out and everyone is off buying that and that's another £76 for you to spend.

Cynical? Perhaps. Truthful? Absolutely.

For once I have to agree about AAA PC games pricing . Unlike regular games, CoD prices tend to stay expensive, even for the PC version, for a couple of years and so far I don't see any huge discounts on Steam sales for the latest ones. Skrim was discounted at 66% for a limited time at Steam's Summer sale but I only see 50% for CoD:MW - no, not MW3...MW1.

Currently on Steam I see Dishonoured, Borderlands 2 and Blops2 listed on the main page. I'm sure the two will see their first discount sales in a month or two while Blops 2 will be priced the same for another year.

I have a gaming PC but I always get COD on consoles, because it's never optimized much for PCs (unlike a game like BF3, which looks night and day PC vs consoles).
