The PS3 Call of Duty 4 Variety Map Pack is taking longer than expected, Infinity Ward has said, but is well on its way to moving through Sony certification.
THey weren't going to have any content during those 2 weeks. and this thursday it will be up. at least on the US PSN Store.
"it's taking longer than expected"
because Microsoft giving them money has made them 'lazy'.
This has nothing to do with MS, but of course you know that already.
Back on topic, well they acknowledged that it was late and gave status update, what else can you ask for. It will be here soon.
I hope GTA drops before this map pack. Fúck iw
True, there wasn't going to be any new content on the PSN store but if the map certification process was done it would have been up when the store came back up, but it wasn't. I thought we were supposed to get them next week but that's looking doubtful now. I love COD4 but lately it's pi$$ing me off when i start playing online and hosts are dropping out left and right. That irks the hell out of me. Especially when the patch was supposed to do something about that.
IW can f*** off. Im not buying this sh1t map pack. I havent played the game in a month and started last night, surprise surprise nothing has changed, theres still that lazy camper, the [email protected]
As a PS3 owner, I am used to waiting!!! To those who disagree...you are right, I still want everything now!
was there a reason for the add-on delay? The game originally released on the same day. Then the GOTY version is set back for PS3? Stuff like this makes me worry about the game industry. I think there are a lot of shady behind the scenes deals involved that ruin the fun of the whole thing at times.
as long as it gets here i dont care just get here.
Don't forget about the original shady deal, EA paying an obscene amount of money for the NFL license. We all know what happened after that- Madden started to suck and gamers were left with no choice. The games industry has blown up and now we get to witness all the treachery that comes along with big business.
any word on the rumble patch for cod4???
Activision? Sony? Microsoft?
I'm sure Sony wouldn't mind. Activision shouldn't mind as well because they could sell more copies with even more interest because people want rumble now that there is DS3s out there.
Activision could potentially force InfinityWard to do so, but I don't think you understand, IW don't want to pay the $2,500 license fee, and don't wanna go back and do a weeks worth of programming, to say they're lazy is generous.
Their community relations officer (fourzerotwo) stated PS3 will not be getting rumble in one of his blog comments. He came up with some c0ck and bull story about how the PS3 didn't get rumble support until too late in the COD4 development cycle and said it would require huge changes for them to incorporate it now. When people responded to him how companies like Insomniac managed to incorporate it into the likes of Resistance a year after it was released he had no response. IW have really given PS3 owners poor customer service all in all.
This was his response to the rumble support:
"@ Those Asking About Rumble: As I’ve said, there are no plans to add rumble to CoD4 PS3, the Rumble tech / support for the PS3 came way to late in Call of Duty 4 to be implemented, we’re almost half a year out since launch and it would require a major code overhaul to add that sort of feature in now."
I love COD4. It's a freaking blast. I'll think twice about ever getting an IW game again though. The servers suck. The connection issues blow. The 360 gets preference. No rumble. No connection fix in the patch like they said. Crappy friend and matchmaking system. For as refined as the game is, they sure as hell slacked in other areas. Kind of a let down for me actually. RFOM2 can't come fast enough.
Rumble is not coming to PS3 for COD4. Its as easy as throwing up a quick patch they need to hard code it into the game which they say is too much work. THERE IS NO RUMBLE COMING FOR COD4
im not real sure if im going to get these maps. Im getting the Warhawk map and im also getting GT5 and GTA4 this month. COD is going to have to wait....for me atleast
It would be nice if these ppl seen they have made a ton of money and they would just give us a free map. I know thats wishful thinking but for games like Halo and COD the sales alone mean you have made your money back 10fold
especially considering Epic/midway did it with UT3 on the PS3...which didn't exactly set the world on fire sales wise...
paying for maps is lame...I am not sure I will do it either...10 dollars for 4 maps right?...maybe eventually i will get them, or if pretty much all the guys on my list get them...but yeah I miss the PC stuff where map packs just sort of came out and that was it...and Epic is doing exactly that on the PS3...there is no reason other devs couldn't as well...
but with GTAIV, GT5P, and MGS4 all on the very immediate horizon...its a case of too little too late for these maps I do believe...
Epic had no choice but to give them to PS3 gamers for free. You could just get them off the net as a mod.
They are probably holding them back so the new Warhawk maps and GT5 don't have to compete with them for our dollars.
Who's going to even be playing COD4 after 4/29/2008 (GTA4 for the clueless). I sold my on ebay for $44. Even if i didn't sell it, i would be too busy playing the Metal Gear Online Beta on 4/21/2008 until 4/29/2008 to play COD4.
Just because GTA4 comes out it doesn't mean that COD4 became a bad game. It's still a lot of fun to play it online! I personaly can't wait for the DLC and I already got GT5P and paid for GTA4.
PS3 does suck, the guys over in the gamerzone are all pretending this has nothing to do with Sony's incompetance. But come on folks lets not kid ourselves, this is late on PS3 because Sony has made everything more complicated and more difficult to do on that bluray player pretending to be a game console. It is just sickening that so many complete and utter moronic poor sap douche bags on this site fail to see that.
Can you guys possible be bigger fanboys??? Just goes to show that both of you never touched a PS3 in your life!
Hey Mr. Marbles you friggin' moron, this generation it's about being an entertainment center, not only being able to do one god damn thing. Like your incredibly stupid, just as stupid as the other Xbox fanbots here, it's not our fault your chose a faulty piece of technology.
Im not a fanboy, I just think Sony is jerking around its fanbase with all of the poor decisions it has made in putting together the PS3.
Why hate on me, it is Sony who is treating its fans like second class gamers, and it is Sonys fault everyone else is being forced to treat them the same.
I just pointed out that a lot of idiots love Sony so much that they are willing to sell short their own right to have a solid and timely gaming experience on par with the gamers on consoles that cost less.
Why should PS3 fans have to wait for EVERYTHING when they already had to wait for the console after multiple delays, and had to pay more for the console, and was promised so much more in a console than the cheaper competition was offering.
Well I guess you rather have rushed products then quality products, did you not see what has been happening with the 360, maybe I can recap the last couple years: RROD.
your dumb when is the last time you got a update for ur 360 we just got a store update im sure every ps3 owner loves about to get another update pretty soon and sony is listening to what the fans of sony have to say everything we had mention have been given to us the only reason COD4 is always delaying on patches or maps is bcuz they want to and using sony as a excuse and other games they give to us quick as possible (1 month or less maybe) its not sony fault ur moron damn freaking fanboys just go play your 360 and stop coming onto the articles that doesn't relate to your console
I would rather have a console with great games and more great games on the way SOON. The RROD is history, my 360 was replaced for free and is running like a champ, my old PS3 was sold because even though it never broke, I had nothing to do on it!
When I did do things it was slow cumbersome and frustrating, the backwards Japanese console ergonomics, the un-user unfriendly setup of everything, the delayed demos, DLC, and games, the crappy ports, the lack of online content, the cheap controller, it all just added up and ended up frustrating me more than the RROD ever did. RROD happend to me twice and both times were months apart, I was out of a 360 for about 20 days tops, and it cost me nothing.
But my PS3 being a 600 dollar paperweight went on and on everyday it sat there. The entire console is just @ss backwards, it sucks, and I feel for developers because they HAVE to deal with Sony's turd, they need you idiots money, and they know you would never buy any other console because you are all programmed mice; Sony's b%tches if you will.
WAIT B3YOND even for maps,god Fony is gay
Marbles you truly do fit in the 15 year old retarded demographic Microsoft is so desperately reaching for, stay there, stay retarded, because obviously comprehension is not your thing.
ive said it again if they didnt make the ps3 most games wud look better and we wont have multiplatform games like gta getting delayed like it did cause of the ps3 version now they cant even program maps in a fast enough time for the ps3 not to mention ps3 gets nothing no bad company beta no cod4 beta crappy half life 2 port the best game on the ps3 atm is HALF LIFE 2 END OFF
i felt a need to respond to this tard for some odd reason... Mr Marbles, you are a 12 year old amped up on energy drinks.. you never owned a ps3, stop saying you did cause if you did, you would not be saying it sucked, it is a entertainment system that does everything..2ndly ps3 released 1 year after the xbox 360, it was announced that way and MS released their console 1 year early...We didn't have to wait for nothing, it was the set date, just like you would be waiting for 360 games, we were waiting for Sony's console...and MS took advantage of this which did well for them and yes 360 has better games because they released 1 year before the PS3 but the PS3 has been dominating the 360 for the past couple months and will continue to grow... Lastly I personally ask you not to move anymore since you have your head so far up MS's ass and MS has there heads up yours, that if either of u move an inch, your gonna create a black hole that will kill all of us... so plz stop posting your retarded fanboyism...
I was gonna ask you elaborate but you got one bubble so meh.
Get the X360 version if you guys have a problem.
I have it on 360 also and I still play it on PS3.. I'm use to it w/o rumble I just want the new maps to come out for PS3..
Well thats a suprise, looks like it may be delayed.
i think ps3 owners are getting jerk i think every single game that we share with the xbox 360 the 360 gets everything first and shouldn't we get it at the same time maybe sometimes we don't get sh!t im tired of this bu!!sh!t ps3 is always getting played damn IW is to lazy to give us a damn rumble patch i know maps are hard but a rumble patch be serious forget it just give us exclusives for the ps3 im tired of this sh!t certified by sony idk think that be easy shouldn't the content is not a f#ck!ng bomb you know but whatever man
"i think ps3 owners are jerks..."
There, that's more accurate. :)
go fvck yourself, your stupid 10 year old comments can go to the open zone, youve been reported you POS
Lol. "Taking longer than expected" means "we are waiting for the limited exclusivity to end" or "we don't really give a sh!t". The maps will come out exactly when they want them to come out, 21 days after the 360 maps. Whatever assholes. They never bothered to answer WHY PS3 owners had to wait for the maps and I don't expect that they ever will. All of IW's goodwill generated from the simultaneous launch of a graphically equal CoD 4 has just about been used up by all this bullsh!t.
i now how you feel dude, but please edit your post so you wont get banned!
MAN!!!!!!!!!! I want my MAP PACK!!!!!!
ive payed for the dam game how long do i have to wait for a frigin map...even i can make 1 lol, if i studied game design
Wish you were here!
cause gta4 is coming really soon....
They are already gonna lose a good portion of the base to MGO, when GTAIV hits, it's pretty much done for.
It can't be denied that the Xbox 360 STILL has the best games of any console.
Forget all of the "just wait until (insert overhyped PS3 game here) is released". I am gaming NOW and right now the 360 continues to provide gamers with better games (and a better online service).
If the PS3 ever starts getting a decent amount of exclusive AAA titles I will probably purchase one.
Until then, I will continue to laugh at it (while playing Bioshock, Mass Effect, Gears 1 & 2, Halo 1, 2 & 3, Ace Combat 6, Ninja Gaiden II, better versions of multiplatform games on a far better controller and on and on and on...)
Xbox is a Charity Case right now. Playststion 3 has been thru this before, Being shortchanged on being shortchanged By XboX! Its fastmoney at XboX, Infinity ward must of partied a little too since Rumble was brought to GamerZ by nintendo on a nintendo 64! Everygame I got has rumble now thanks to Sony. Except call of duty says They can't ... those maps are officially uninspiring. Ps3 is our Life! Get one
hahahahaha!! PS3 is SH1T!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
unexpected? nope. But im fricken pissed that there's no news for the PC thats beyond the realm of *potential* I wont be surprised if they launch the maps for the PC 3 months later, with annoucements after annoucements saying there's potential news of its release. My interest in *The Game* has almost been *Lost*..
How hard can it be to make a map pack when the maps are already designed and the game is finished AND you have put them out to another console already. What could possibly make it so difficult?
