On the official webpage of Call of Duty: Ghosts on Facebook we can check that the game will be revealed in Microsoft event to reveal the next Xbox
Xbox launch title, new engine, new perspective, everything new. May 21th we wait to see a revolution to franchise
And new time exclusive DLC.
LOL....MS is funny.
a multiplatform game revealed at the same time as Xbox? That's a hint of how "rich" the exclusive games library for Xbox will be. This type of announcement is really lame and everytime Microsoft start their E3 conference with COD gameplay i'm just "facepalming"
If Sony wasn't so broke maybe they could buy their own timed exclusives, or anything for that matter.
Call of Duty has become the largest franchise so as a business move it makes good sense to partner yourself with it. Just like how Sony partnered itself with Final Fantasy and Grand Theft Auto before. What I see on forums are nothing but double standards. Seems to me most people were ok with these back door deals and the PS2 getting all the software. Almost to the point of a monopoly. Now we see Microsoft using DLC as a tactical advantage and the anti-Microsoft people all of the sudden cry foul. These are huge IP's and if you can convince gamers that's the platform to get them on then that's just business. What I do hope to see is more investment Microsoft with building their own franchises. Not just a few they can keep relying on and timed exclusives.
Im kinda glad sony is broke then;-) that, or they're just not ridiculous enough to waste money on a timed exclusive.
@ JoGam You are aware that Sony already have confirmed exclusive DLC for "Watch Dog's", "Destiny" and "Assassins Creed 4" right? @ Abzdine But let me guess, Sony featuring an already announced multi platform title's (Watch Dog's and Destiny) and announcing "Diablo 3" was fine...?
I think it'll have to do more with the fact that it's new hardware than the devs. Killzone and battlefield have set the bar pretty high already
Not to mention its probably a launch title for the PS4 as well. I have a feeling that the PS4 and the 720 will destroy the Wii U this holiday season. Nintendo will have to release at least 5 AAA games in order to combat this. Now if only dice would surprise us with Battlefield 4 for next gen consoles. @nevin1 Same goes for the PS4 with watchdogs and assassins creed.
BF4 will be shown just like the previous BF games during Sony E3 conference.
revloution? Good god it's happened already It will still be COD at heart, a new lick of paint doesn't hide the fact it will STILL be the same old game thats came out every year. AC3 got a new engine but it was still AC and it was pretty disappointing. Casual fans and die hard COD fans who don't play on anything else are going to eat this up more just because it LOOKS different Well better go and prepare about hearing about this game on and on and on untill it's released when theres far better games coming out this year which will most likely be ignored
@Allwrong, no - they're just spending money on new games.
I am overfknwhelmed. That a way MS. Keep keeping it real.
Be prepared to be disappointed.
IM SO EXCITED
It's supposed to be an entirely new engine, which is what I'll be looking forward to, hopefully the online coding will be straightened out. Obviously COD is the most popular game around right now, so this is a big feather in the cap, as everyone will associate the May 21st reveal with the biggest game around. It'd be kind of unprecedented if Microsoft got deals with Activision and EA, but Microsoft has the money to make it happen. I also wouldn't count out Bungie making an appearance at Microsoft's show as well. Things are heating up!
Man, I didnt even think of that..well said.
Do they really think this is going to make people buy the nextbox when it will be on the PS4 aswell. All Sony have to do to counter this is advertise it for their console aswell. At the end of the day, coming from experience, the die hard COD players will get it for the cheapest console. Thats why most people play it on the 360...that and the fact they can use their headsets for cross game chat
*counter this is advertise it for their console*
Not if they advertised like they always have which is with no effort or budget.
The same could be said about Destiny at the PS4 conference. Of course it's coming to Xbox as well. What's your point?
Yay, more exclusivity bullshit -.-
New CoD new engine maybe next-xbox exklusive. Old engine version, multiplatform.
I doubt that it will be next x-box exclusive, I'm thinking DLC exclusive (timed). Activision know how much money they make from COD. I find it hard to believe that Activision is willing alienate 1/2 of their possible audience... unless MS paid a lot a lot of money, I'm talking hundreds and hundreds of millions possibly even a billion?
PS fans do not account for half, maybe a third. Not arguing here just stating the obvious.
@Godz Kastro , id say its pretty close to half 45.42m ps3, 59.85m xbox, 5.66m wii,total sales by platform, but keep in mind this is like 7 months ago, so Call of Duty: Black Ops II sales will affect this Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Global Total as of 20th Apr 2013 (units): 12.09m xbox. Global Total as of 20th Apr 2013 (units): 10.08m ps3 so Activision knows it sells really well on both systems..so most likely timed dlc..
@Godz Kastro I've never heard that before. I've always heard that the split was around 55/44. I looked around and I could only find the sales breakdown for the opening week and they were: 360 6.21 mil and PS3 4.61 mil. I'm pretty sure that would be the sales trend throughout the games lifetime. But please, If you have the numbers showing that the PS3 only accounts for 1/3 of Black Ops sales go right ahead.
@Godz Kastro What a blatant LIE. If you look at the online population for Black Ops 2, the PS3 online count is acually higher then the xbox 360s half the time.. explain that please? Get a freind who has a Ps3 and ask him how many is online.
lol CoD reveal on May 21 Xbox reveal? So i guess that will knock out 30 mins out of MS E3 2013 show xD or they plan to do another CoD reveal at E3 as well to hide there lack of exclusives
They will spend 30 mins for a further gameplay with 30 days exclusive DLC.
most likely be released for the PS4 and Xbox 720
As much as some people will love the next COD to be exclusive to 720, it won't.
Timed exclusivity is always the best weapon in console wars. I predict that the PS4 will get this game six months after launch.
I wasnt sure MS wohld still be into cod for next gen since they bagged a deal for bf4 and maybe a timed exclusive for respawns next game but it seems they might be. Good for shooter fans. Personally not interested in any of them so am more eager to see what other genres if any the first parties will explore.
Umm where exactly did they bag a deal for BF4?As far as i know that's still a rumor.
since Microsoft has few big AAA games in development for next xbox they still want to keep the call of duty hype to push their nextgen concole sales .. this is pathetic
if you cant make your own games, you buy it.... sad as that is
i had a feeling ms was going to use cod to market their next console what would they do without call of duty
OK, smart move MS. Thats 15-20 million sales of 720 just on this alone. If I were Sony I would havbe tried to take this away from MS. No matter how much people here rag on COD. IT moves units. Launching a New Version on a new console is very smart for both Act and MS. Things are getting interesting...
Microsoft throwing millions of dollars at Activision isn't smart, it yet again shows how dependent they are on the franchise. The interesting thing is to see whether gamers fall for the same trick again. I would rather Sony not throw money at third party franchises as gamers are tired of that crap and are going to be demanding more IP's, something Microsoft forgot about with the 360. COD on 720 and PS4 will be identical due to the console architecture, If online play is still free on PS4 with party chat, that will make it interesting.
No, some people will stick to the current-gen version because this is a cross-gen title. About half of xbox users will purchase this on current gen I assume, so that's like 4-6 million sales on next-xbox
Surprise, surprise, who didn't see it coming, lol.
It's about time Microsoft showed up to an event without relying on Call Of Duty to perk peoples interests. The problem I fear is if Microsoft are behind in game development and have been caught out by Sony their just going to chuck money at every company willing to listen, that is not a good thing. So they will announce Call Of Duty for the next Xbox, then they will announce timed DLC, a cycle far to familiar.
Finally, a new...engine...
It will start off with a black screen and some manly white soldier voices saying "alpha alpha foxtrot lieutenant," then things will clear up and a manly white soldier will walk toward you and say something manly. Then explosions everywhere for no reason and the character will slo-mo jump through a glass window and more explosions. Then a chopper will show up and somehow get blown up by your character and his gun with 6 types of sights attached to it. The helicopter then does that spinny crash thing while particles fly everywhere. Then white soldiers will say Hooyah while driving off in a hummer and America wins.
@allwrong Sony broke lol?,you definitely are all wrong. I think you are the one who is broke!. I find it kind of pathetic that ms will show another cod at their event!, I was hoping cod would die this gen and something new would happen next gen but it seems it will be the same old shit on a new platform.. Ms would be better to buy iw and 3arch and be done with it!,the next gen ain't looking to next gen!.
Rinse and repeat I bet the game plays like all COD with enhanced visuals...
COD needs die its boring...
COD will be available on all platform, so there is no reason to go out and buy next gen console just for this game.
