Call of Duty: Ghosts Uses Recycled And Re-textured Maps

Eskimo Press: "The most popular Call of Duty: Ghosts map, Strikezone, is nothing more than Modern Warfare 3 map that has been re-textured and rotated. Does this warrant your attention?"

This is why the sales are dwindling.

Enemy992d ago (Edited 992d ago )

Rightfully so.

Paying $60 for the same game you've been buying since 2007. Tsk tsk.

4Sh0w992d ago (Edited 992d ago )

Wow its not just this its a combination of things that just shows this game is the laziest installment of COD by far.

Reminds me how years ago Madden went down hill, yep looking at you EA.

tanis_halfelven992d ago

not only that, they will probably release ACTUAL maps from previous installments as dlc.

*sigh*

Dirtnapstor992d ago

Agreed. Chaps my backside! I did notice some of the MP maps felt familiar... And now SP, similar to the previous installment controversy.
Explains the "same engine" crap.

wsoutlaw87992d ago

Ya what the hell do they do for 2 years. 2 years should be more than enough time.

Mainsqueeze991d ago (Edited 991d ago )

even though I could care less about this game, I dont know why this comes as a surprise to anyone. Its called being resourceful, pretty much any game or movie made now a-days does the same thing.

tawak991d ago

the is why few days after released they are giving it for trading ANY games at FutureShop, i got 1 yestereday after trading a game "Genji"..lolol

Hayder991d ago

I agree Microsoft suck, PS4 for life!! Xbox can't even do 1080p at 60f.... oh it's not a "Microsoft bash" on N4G? Is it April 1st? I kid with love peeps.
I agree it's a lazy port from Activision but I think it's always the case when a new generation is looming. They have to hash together a game to suit both generations and they will always cut corners. Every game I'm getting for the PS4 and Xbox One are exclusives. All the others I'll play on my 360/PS3

Where do I sign the petition?

itBourne991d ago

Really? I dont think Activision's pocket books are hurting to much. This is why sales are dwindling? Its not the first time they have done this, didnt hurt the sales of previous games.

Sales are down for the same reason all other current gen sales are down, a new console cycle is coming lol.

TheEnigma313991d ago (Edited 991d ago )

If it's because the new gen is coming explain gta v sales.

JackBNimble991d ago

GTA V is out now on current gen, and hasn't even been announced for next gen. That is the biggest reason GTAV has done so well at the end of this Gen, if it had been announced for next Gen aswell , I would be willing to bet that GTAV wouldn't have sold so many copies initially.

monkeyfox991d ago

I don't think its because new gen is coming.. towards the end of a consoles cycle there is a huge installed user base. The reason for slight drop in interest is simply because it is getting stale.. period.

dennett316991d ago

Why do you care so much about how much they made? I see this sort of nonsense all the time from people...."It made money, so your complaints are irrelevent".
Nope, sorry, not how it works. Appeal to authority on the basis of financial success is more than a little sad. You shouldn't care about that, ypou should care about the fact that the developers have released a shoddy, unoptimised game. And while they were doing that, they were taking the easy way out and reskinning old assets and hoping no-one would notice.
It's phenomenally lazy design, and smacks of a desperate cash grab sequel that a dev churns out while on it's last legs. Infinity Ward is a shell of it's former self, and it shows.

itBourne991d ago (Edited 991d ago )

There is a reason they didnt announce and even denied pc/next get versions of GTA5, so sales wouldnt be hurt.

@dennett
Are you fucking kidding me, I am not defending CoD at all, I hate that game more then any fucking game on the planet. It literally ruined and entire generation of shooters and is the reason why there isnt a single shooter game made for my tastes any longer.

I was simply saying consumers are dumb enough that they can do whatever the hell they want, as long as CoD is in the title. THEY HAVE RE-USED resources before! It is not the first time, so I was simply saying that is not why sales are being hurt. MW3 broke all kinds of records and had plenty of rehashed assets.

Sledgehammer : "Mw3 is a 'COMPLETELY NEW' game, if you put Mw2 next to Mw3, you would see a HUGE difference between the two"

hmmmmmmmm....

The fools who bought this trash deserve what they get.

Dan_scruggs991d ago

You have a hilarious definition of the word dwindling. The game is still going to sell north of 15 million copies. Only being bested by GTA 5. A game that only comes out every 5 years. Billions will still be made and nothing will change. If that is dwindling then games like Bioshock Infinite and Last of Us that only clear about 4 million must be doing terrible.

Like it or not Call of Duty is still in a league of its own. Even if they don't live up to the highest points of sales in the series It still sits miles above the competition in terms of sales.

da_2pacalypse991d ago

This same issue was present in MW3 where they used several buildings from MW2.... People who buy these games don't have the attention span to even realize this... Their sales are dwindling because people are tired of the same old thing. Good.

ferhound991d ago

Yep, but what about the dog or the intelligent fish systems? xD

Killjoy3000991d ago

While we're at it, let's not forget to say fuck IGN.

SaturdayNightBeaver991d ago

yea i doubt people are not buying it so much , just because some textures. 90% cod players don't know what texture is..

PhoenixRising37992d ago

this shouldn't come to anyone as a surprise.

twinspectre992d ago

and the sad part is that people still buying this crap even on the next gen and not the standart edition but the hardned edition O.O

kB0992d ago (Edited 992d ago )

I'm not defending them but at least ghosts looks better, some of the details are pretty ok imo:S I didn't buy the game I bought bf4 instead but the graphics really dont seem half bad, I'm seeing very smooth edges and round ones, with pretty nice lighting and reflections:S

I'm just saying.

It's still a lazy rehash but I think the engine did sort of evolve, it seems the outside team they called in did a decent job with old tech.
