Call of Duty 4 is now officially the biggest game on PlayStation 3, according to the latest Chart Track information – and Activision plans to celebrate with a high profile consumer event and new downloadable content.
"The new downloadable multiplayer maps will be available on both Xbox 360 and PS3 early next month"...
Fantastic news, i was hoping they'd coming sooner rather than later, look's like COD4 is gonna be keeping me busy for sometime to come : )
I'm still wondering how much they will cost. I'd be totally willing to pay if they added some extra functionality on top of the maps - like single-player co-op, or an extra mission or two - but I won't pay for something that takes a 12 year old kid 8 hours to make for the PC version. I'm willing to pay for content, but not silly content. EDIT: This story is what I'm talking about! http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... That's what I want to see for COD4.
there is allways the problem : what to do with the people not buying the maps ?? kick them from the game ? 2 seperate mapcycles ? they would be advised to hand them out free
It would be nice if we got them for free, but I'm not going to hold my breath. I would pay for co-op, though. EDIT: And jets and helicopters. Bah, who am I kidding? I want BF2 for PS3.
likewise, i would pay for coop anyday :D and a heartbeat sensor, heatgoogles and a tank :)
You ain't gonna get co-op for COD4. They said the experience was too individual, like in the interactive cutscenes in first person view. Think of the number of cinematic set pieces in COD4 and ask yourself whether they would work alongside co-op.
Co-op maps, not co-op single player. I'm not interested in playing with my friends at my house, I want to play the multi-player maps against bots.
COD4 is a superb game, it is interesting to see a multi plat be the largest seller on the PS3. Especially since games like Uncharted are o the PS3. I would rank Uncharted really high. It is the best game I own on my PS3. I want to see Sony exclusives have higher numbers to insure more great hits keep coming.
Luckily MotorStorm and Resistance aren't far behind. And MotorStorm 2, Resistance 2, Killzone 2 and little big planet (plus 10 other games coming out in 08) will be even bigger sellers. My pick for best selling PS3 games this year is however Metal Gear Solid and GTA4.
Couldn't agree more, bubs for you.
I love this game and it has become my addiction for the past couple months now. I am looking forward to the new maps.
With less Lag, better servers and more adult/mature players online COD4 on the PS3 is the ONLY choice. Ops, NO, I take that back. Those 12 year old Xbox Live Rabid Droids can stay where they are, we don't want your filthy race on PSN. The CrapBox 3FixMe has 3 good uses: 1 - Keep the rabids 12 year old out of PSN; 2 - Fry eggs; 3 - Warm up your house on winter; May Sony Gods Bless Us All!!!!
but it is ruined by all the glitches in the PS3 version. (I haven't seen any on the 360 though I'm sure there are some) I have been posting on Infinity Ward's site trying to get some idea about when they plan to address the problems with unlocking weapons, create a class, rank and stats. I am at level 39 at the moment and all my weapons except the default classes are still locked. There are many many others out there with the same problem, alot of players more angrier at IW than I am!
On IW's site there are 37 pages of posters complaining about these problems. To date I have not seen any reply from IW regarding the problems. I am going to wait until after the patch is released, if they haven't sorted these problems by then I'm just going to flog this game on and avoid the COD franchise from now on. Very frustrating!
That sucks dude. I can't even guess what's causing these glitches. Have you tried setting up a new account in a different region and seeing if it happens with that too?
Haven't got any of those problems with my 360 version...
Sounds really bad dude! Any answer from IW yet on this PS3 specific extreme glitching?
had the same problem with it on my 360 lol but i went through prestige mode and everything were fine
that is driving me mad. Not just me either. I was reading through a couple of threads on IW's forum and a number of posters there are complaining that they have started threads regarding these glitches and problems only to have them deleted or locked by a moderator.
See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil?
Personally I have tried a number of ways to rectify this problem. I've deleted the game information from the PS3 drive and re-installed the game. No luck there. I tried the same again and used a copy of the game bought in Asia. It installed again but as soon as I went online the problem was still there. Finally I set up a new user and account, played through past Level 4 and still the "create a class" tab was still locked.
With no replies from anyone on Infinity Wards site, no news or press releases regarding the numerous issues and problems plaguing COD4 it is really souring my opinion of this game. If the upcoming patch does not sort these problems I won't spend any of my hard earned cash on another game from IW.
i have cod4 on ps3 and i have no problems with online... glitches happens every once a while. i get in matches in a heartbeat. it seems like everytime people have problems with their games, i dont have problems(ex. assassins creed)
maybe its the fanboys who make bad things up about the other versions or maybe im just lucky...
For your information lads and lasses, here is a link to one of the threads about some of the problems with COD4 (PS3) on Infinity Wards' site.
This is just one thread, take a look for yourselves.
I have not seen one glitch.
Lucky i quess?
But the pc version has many cheater & problably some glitches aswell.
The better part about console is that no one cheats,but on pc all you hear is cheaters in games there.
But glitches will always exist in all games despite which console or pc.
Some may be more then the other's but like i said,i've never seen someone glitch in the ps3 version.
May the glitches be with you...Always!
ive got loads of problems with cod4 on ps3:
when i go on find game it says downloading game settings for about 2 minutes
I cant connect to my friends sometimes
and i cant hear some poeple in the game and im tryin to speak to them
Ive been hearing about other people who have different problems to me like prunchess up there and i really think iw should start sorting them all out before realising any new maps
A lot of people were complaining about the patch, so IW might be adjusting it before it hits the PS3, they will probably fix the 360 one too.
I find a lot of the time if it has trouble connecting to a game, if i just quit back to the multiplayer main screen (with the options for online, splitscreen and LAN) and go back into online then it usually sorts itself out. This is especially true when I've failed to connect to a friend's party and subsequently been unable to join games. Good luck with your issues!
how good is CoD? is it good offline and online? Is it like Medal of Honor?
I havent even tried it.
btw: Im talking about PS3 version.
If you ask me Call of Duty 4 is the best game on PS3. Some of the offline missions are truly stunning and the online speaks for itself. My list goes like this: Call of Duty 4 Uncharted MotorStorm Resistance Unreal Tournament
I agree, although Pro Evo goes straight under COD4 for me. My playtime is mostly split between COD4 and Pro Evo. COD4 is the best online shooter ever created. If it had more multiplayer options like co-op and online/splitscreen combined then it would be best multiplayer shooter ever, but as it stands, best online.
The problems you stated above were dealt with months ago. Downloading game settings probably has something to do with your firewall. I suggest you open your ports in your router to your ps3, and, or, put your ps3 in dmz. Ive been playing this game for months, and I have not heard anyone talk about glitching,, I was a gamebattles referee, and not once complaint about the game anymore. Maybe its on your end,,, ever think about that?
i have a nat type 2 and my upnp is available so what more do i need to do.
every single other online game ive had has worked perfectly like warhawk and resistance
but you beat me to it . great game , love it and aint had no glitches apart from being kicked cos host ending the game. that really bugs the tits off of me . psn hippiez2007 see yas on the battlefields .
...that the PS3's best selling title, is multiplatform. So much for all those AAA first-party exclusives the fanboys keep bragging about. :o
its the second best selling 360 title isn't it?...and its quickly closing in on Halo 3, which launched nearly 2 months before...
its the most played game on both networks...leave it alone...Halo 3 was supposed to end this console war...you should definitely not be laughing at the PS3...
...not even close. COD4 is a distant 3rd, behind GOW...by about 1.5 million. Of course, it still outsold the PS3 version. :o
ha ok...sorry...its in '3rd'...being outsold only by Halo 3 and Gears...the latter of which released in 2006...
Cod 4 still tops the 360's sales lists each week though...its the most played game currently on XBL...and has been for over a month...
this is the first time I have seen a 360 fan try to downplay a PS3 because the best selling game on the PS3 is also loved by 360 owners...it should be the other way around...a multiplatform title, which the 360 crowd would have you believe is always better on the 360, is the most played game right now by 360 owners...its the 360 that was supposed to have the 'best lineup in history'...yet more people are playing a game that is also available on the PS3 than any other game available...why are you thinking you have any room to trash the PS3 because of that?
so yeah...it hasn't sold as much as 2 other games on the 360...that definitely means that the PS3 sucks...you are right...
and by the way...how many has Gears sold?...CoD 4 is ramping up on 6 million very quickly...Gears is approaching 8 million now?...just a month ago I heard it was just over 6 million...just asking...it hasn't been on any sales lists for quite some time...
I mean i know that COD4 being a great game with online mp will do well but u guys should be supporting your exclusives. Also i here alot of ps3 fans saying they don't want a 360 as it only has shooters then cod4 is your best selling game. talk about irony. I guess some of you are to busy talking about the great games on this site that you forgot to buy them. Oh and ain't it funny that 3 of the 4 best selling exc on the ps3 are RAC,resistance and unchartered. These all have shooting as there main game play mechanic. Hmmmmm...
Don't confuse the fanboys with people having a normal conversation about a game they like.
just cos its a shooter it dont mean we dont like it. doesnt mean tho that every game we buy will be and sony as far as im concerned has the biggest variation on genres .
The best selling game on the ps3 is a shooter and multi platform!!!!! Theres another fact for you to disagree with. If you ps3 guys like shooters i can recommend Halo 3 and gears1/2......ohh wait my bad. ....OTHER NEWS JUST IN...im drinking a cup of tea or am i!!?!! to agree or disagree that is the question.
when the new feature update is coming. They say anytime now, but when?
I havent played cod in months. Its just a run and spray game. Give me BF and Socom.
Man you should check out the sniping on COD4. I know so many people say it's broken but I love it. I've now practically abandoned the old run n' spray gameplay in favour of seeking out those perfect sniper headshots. And plus you have a great variety of sniper rifles to choose from!
You really need to find a good core group of guys to play with. Once you get in a good group it is very easy to control areas of the map and even move forward giving each other covering fire while your team flanks the enemy team. I am guessing that you haven't given the headquarters, search and destroy, or team tactical gametypes very much play. I think I only play deathmatch as a run and gun game.
so leave it, and it wont be the top seller when the bombs drop.
we are going to see when gta4 comes ;) it will sell better than xbox360. just wait and see.
no shooter is good on the PS3 when compared with the 360
I no a perfect celebration present! 1.5!
Cod4 is First rite now.. but once socom comes out that wont be the case.. COD4 was fun for like a month.. I havent really touched it since army of 2 and The show came out.. COD4 was a good time spacer game now that there are other games out it will be played alot less and once socom comes out it will be traded in.. COD4 you had a good run.. That'LL do pig.. That'LL do..
I just play COD for the 1st time on PC, I don't like playing with keyboard and mouse, will get this when price drops in future, not into online gaming. Good game, great graphics, story, audio, all around good game
Those Xbots don't know video games. Just a bunch of noobs. Jinn is dumb to say that shooters on the PS3 look bad considering we have several games that go past any shooter out there. 1.)Killzone 2 (Takes graphics to a whole new level w/ terrific game play.) 2.)MGS4 (No Questions It's MGS People!) Haze (Another great exclusive coming out in a couple months.) 3.)Resistance 2 (60 players, 8 player co op, better story, etc.) 4.)Crysis (Which is now a PS3 Console Exclusive w/ 2X the extra content leaking to the 2nd.) 5.)Project Offset also coming to the PS3. (Read the March Issue of Playstation Magazine and you'll see it in the back.) also GTAIV will sell more on the PS3 because it gives PS2 Owners a reason to switch and IGN already stated the PS3 had the better version of this game and COD4. It's just another reason to own a PS3 so all you haters can just suck it. PLAY B3YOND or Don't play at all!!!!!!! PS3 FTW!!!!!!!!!!
dont forget unreal with all those mods. why isnt that game on 360 yet? wasnt it supposed to be timed. I think lag might be the issue there. The only game really worth playing over and over is call of duty not jittery jaggy Halo 3. the best games are on xbox but even that can be sacrificed when ps3 plays Ghost recon, rainbow 6, oblivian and every other multi platform port. Good News!!! Since ive switched to playstation I just saved a bunch of money on my gaming and Im loving it. I got Blue tooth, Dual shock 3 from ebay. Im downloading movies from stage6.com and brightsidevideos.com for free. I even watch movies that are still in the theatres for free. Just downloaded a performance update and very soon I'll have a 3d version of xbox live and the virtual console called HOME. I got call of duty 4 and I got all the multi platform games and xbots are saying That Ill be missing the sequels to those old dvd games I dont think so. I think it is those xbots who missed out on uncharted,resistance and heavonly sword because those games showed potential and that their sequels could not be done on dvd. Lets not forget that more space for memory means more capabilities. True xbots are willing to pay another $2oo dollars for a bigger hardrive. Understand? I hope you didnt let halo 3 suck the memory out of it for useless instant replay. Xbots are a bunch of toys. its sad really they thought they won it. Its so early in the game and M$ is spending way to much on damage control and trying to secure exclusives. Whats true is the developers are finnaly making money off of the Big companies and stupid people who buy into M$ P.R. and xbox live. A sucker is born every minute.
that you can watch AVIs on the 360 don't you? Meaning that I also watch movies on my console for free
i love the online co op campain mode,its SICK.the game is like playing BLACK in 3rd person,and you feel like those two bank robbers in LA with all the guns an armor against like 100 cops.BAD ASS game.ONLINE MADNESS!!
there is no doubt in my mind the SP3 COD4 version is way better than the xbox360s. I have seen both. PS3 own accesses online very quickly and at most times has consistent online play, especially with the latest firmware update 2.17 it even plays much better than before.
i loved this game for months now it just seems monotonous and repetitive im ready for gtaIV
that wasn't a hard feet to attain.
it should be "COD4 rules THE PS3" not "on" because the PS3 fans suddenly start flaming for no reason. I'm glad that a good game is selling well on the PS3
