The fools are the people that bought the game. It's some bullshit but what would you expect from COD the biggest money grabbers in the business.

What? I thought all systems were getting dedicated servers, not only Xbox One. I am getting an Xbox One so it is not an issue for me but that sucks for gamers as a whole. That really sucks.

only sony fanboy was hyping the shit up nobody but them

Yea, they thought they were gonna get dedicated servers just because they thought their game was 1080p. This launch will bring some of them back down to earth. Sony has screwed up big time. All MS has to do is not have the same issues and they will come away the winners regardless of how many they sell.

This goes beyond fanboy warring.

This is akin to MS DRM stuff.

Essentially it is a corporate monster feeling so entitled that they lie and take from us, the gamers. The ones who keep them in business and successful.

Well, Activision.......Suck my Cock!

Language please! I know you're angry. The other day I saw someone on here who banned for saying a word that starts with a and ends with ss. A bit unfair I know but be careful.
SpinalRemains138  +   255d ago
I apologize.

I had a 12 pack last night and became enraged when I read the story. The idea that successful companies feel so comfortable in lying to its base is just beyond sickening to me.

The only words I could use to show that were the ones I chose and used.

Its just unacceptable that we are lied to like this and there is no recourse for them. They lie with impunity and nothing happens.

It's all good. I agree and still gave you a bubble. :)

Complete and utter BS. This makes MS and activision/IW look like assholes. Luckily for me, I thought this was the worst cod put out , well, ever. I'll stick to BF4, and destiny when it comes out. The new crop of "better" FPS games.

What does MS have to do with this? They just offered free dedicated servers. It was infinity ward that lied to save sales on the playstation side. You honestly think MS planned this just so Sony can get more sales? Lol the hatred is strong with this one.
SuicideKing  +   256d ago
Unfortunately this doesn't really surprise me. For one thing if every platform was getting dedicated servers why would Microsoft make such a big deal out of it. Also wouldn't Microsoft have said on Xbox one and Xbox 360 to expect dedicated servers. I thought it sounded sketchy as soon as IW said oh all platforms have them now.

like his 5 best reasons four buying ps4 over xbox one .not once do they say and online play.i have ps4 and its pants online. long way to go to catch up with microsoft roll on friday.

That's not relevant at all.
DivineAssault  +   255d ago
I dont play COD so i dont care.. If i ever rent it & play online, im sure it will be fine on PS4 regardless
PsylentKiller  +   255d ago
This is bull I'm getting an XB1 so it doesn't affect me either. But for this reason as well as the resolution on PS4 being 720p when it was advertised as 1080p native I'm not getting Ghosts. I was willing to give CoD one more year but after this, they wont get my money this year.
MasterCornholio  +   255d ago
Wow I can't believe Microsoft paid them to do this. There's no reason why the Xbox One version is the only version with dedicated servers.

Take your head out! MS didn't pay anyone the X1 has free dedicated servers, this is on Activision. I swear so many people here are so quick to jump on "unwarranted conspiracy theories" as long as it bashes the console they don't like.
JasonKCK  +   255d ago
What did they forget to sign the check for the 360 while they were paying for X1? You know the "360" the console that has all of MS's install base and subscribers? Use some logic.

They've also gimped the PS4 version & Sony doesn't say shit to Activision nor M$...thats why sometimes I wonder if Sony receives money from them to allow these types of bullshit.
Omegasyde  +   255d ago
No one believed me when Activision and IGn did a Cod:ghost preview running on PS4.

The rep from activision kept mentioning how the settings would be set by the "host" and that AI would reflect off the host's play style.

Technically Activision can say," We'll we use dedicated servers for the lobby or to keep track of stats."
purp13m0nk3y  +   255d ago
Who cares!? I have played heaps of competitive FPS online with and without "dedicated servers". One does not necessarily offer a better experience to the other.

As far as I'm concerned its all just marketing BS! Either a game needs to be hosted by a server or it doesn't. Dedicated or not makes sweet FA difference IMO.

KZ running Peer to Peer works brilliantly and does away with any need for servers at all, dedicated or otherwise.

Never had a problem with peer to peer tbh.
