Next-Gen Visual Effects on Current-Gen? or the other way around . hope they use a new engine .
creatchee  +   292d ago
I wouldn't mind if they made a new engine and downported to 360 and PS3, but I'm tired of crossgen games holding back Xbox One and PS4's potential.
GearSkiN  +   292d ago
Still early that's why they still do port.
kayoss  +   292d ago
160 million ps3 and x360 world wide combined.Those are very large potential sale numbers. They will continue to make cross gen as long as they can.
creatchee  +   292d ago
I'm not saying you can't make the new games for last gen too, but design them on the new consoles and then port lesser versions to 360 and PS3.

needs a new engine,not a upgrade

COD feels like the 25 year old cat you have in your house. Every year it gets older and worse, yet it refuses to die and just hangs around.

COD needs a complete overhaul. The gameplay has been the same for X amount of years. Releasing the game each year is beginning to feel like a sports game.

There will always be some improvement, but the visuals from PS3/X360 to next gen will be growing year to year in the future I believe.
Kryptonite42O  +   292d ago
I doubt they will use a new engine at this point.. Its too early, but one can only hope.

In all honesty, Infinity Ward needs to step aside and let Treyarch make another COD... Im still playing Black Ops 2, since Infinity Ward pooped the bed with that disappointment that is COD Ghosts. I bought it... played it a few times, then went back to blops2. I just wish I could play it on my X1..

Hopefully it's different experience but lessons taught me never to be excited for COD
angelsx  +   292d ago
No no no no we heard same shit before many times.
Ashunderfire86  +   292d ago
All I really hope for is to get that excitement I got when Call of Duty first switch over to Modern instead of World War 2. It look so real like the war in the Iraq at the time. It was truly the best in the series.


I am looking for that surprising change in the Call of Duty series that will make you go wow like the first Modern Warfare!
TheGrimReaper0011  +   292d ago
Dude! This one will have a new ai system, so they'll have birds fly out of the way when you get close
There's also new interactive smoke and wind
With highly advanced AI to make new dogs
this IS next Gen COD!

"Next-Gen Visual Effects on Xbox 360 and PS3"

This defies logic.
pwnsause_returns  +   292d ago
forget next gen fish...its all about that next gen Dog AI...
dazzrazz  +   292d ago
When did anything coming from PR Activision had ever any logic :P
HurtfulTimez  +   292d ago
Yep i think they really need to go back to basics and make it a military shooter instead of a terrible cheesy holloywood blockbuster film wannabe.... COD4 was great beacause it was about shooting people. not all this throwing knives and axes and stabbing people from 10 feet away we see now...
press-start  +   292d ago
well expect this game to look s@it then

Call Of Duty, in general, needs to just die!

I'm tired of all these cross gen games.

Can't wait for the next-gen version of Call of Duty
Matt666  +   292d ago
It won be next gen though it be the same rubbish as it every year, I sure that COD gets worse every time they release a "new" COD
josephayal  +   292d ago
maniacmayhem  +   292d ago
I'm sure the next CoD will incorporate some kind of destructible environments. It's really one of the main things BF4 has over CoD.
DanteVFenris666  +   292d ago
I doubt they can on with the tech they are using. They would probably have to rebuild the game from scratch on a brand spanking new engine. Activision clearly shows they'd rather save many and give you reused assets. As a programmer it's to painfully obvious that most of the assists on the programming side are the same, then I see on the art side they reuse. For the biggest blockbuster game it reuses more assets then I've seen in low budget indie titles. So I promise you they won't be doing this until people stop buying their game. As long as they can sell a reskinned game like a cash cow for 60 bucks they will
JoseV76  +   292d ago
You must be crazy, BF4 has veriaty of vehicles, levolution, tons of upgrades, helicopter's, tanks, lots of fun game modes, and the graphics just sh!!t on CoD!!
maniacmayhem  +   292d ago
And yet CoD still overtakes BF in terms of sales and popularity.
yezz  +   292d ago
What?! So they finally start to improve the graphics on ps3/360 generation when the new generation is here? Isn't that the job they should've done 5 years ago and now put all their focus on the CURRENT generation..

But I guess that's modern Call of duty for ya :S
PoSTedUP  +   292d ago
cod has always set the graphics-bar high, i expect this to be an understatement and be blown away when they finally show it. /s

call of duty1
call of duty:finest hour
call of duty: united offense
call of duty2
call of duty2: the big red one
call of duty 3

U must be joking. After in my opinion ghosts was total garbage. And I used to be a big cod fan. With destiny, the division, titanfall, halo 5, and h hour all looking very promising. Cod is dead now or at least it should be. With all those games coming there's something for everyone no matter what type of shooter fan u are. There's no reason to buy cod anymore.
ger2396  +   292d ago
He was being sarcastic. As far as the franchise dying, not yet. Whether people like it or not, its the top selling game year after year.
PoSTedUP  +   292d ago
joking? why would you think im joking? im offended and your post is nothing but a personal attack on my benevolence. i hear-by call to the mods for this blatant ridicule of my personal taste in games. i have taken a bubble, reported, and blocked you from my life so i never have to face this kind of verbal injustice ever again... i hope you misplace your ps4 and have a hard time finding it.

@ger: (about call of duty dying) youre right, and its obvious. and sad... man i hate when people like what i absolutely despise... call of duty is like the Jersey Shore of video games... its hard not to hate on it.

If the visual effects are possible on last gen then it's not next gen in the first place. Don't ever expect anything , if they deliver then good if not then you won't get disappointed.

Judging from history , even if it's only next gen it won't look next gen. It's call of duty we are talking about here.
GearSkiN  +   292d ago
Hope treyarch gives me the whole next gen COD.
MisterFantastic  +   292d ago
Call of duty is like MC Hammer. Washed up, no career, and bald. BTW, COD should change the name to SOS (Same Ol'Shit)...no matter how pretty you make the shit, it's the same ol piece of crap.

Next gen graphics.. Call of Duty.. Lol.
Summons75  +   292d ago
So basically theyre putting zero effort into the current gen version that it will look the same on last gen?

Please explain how that is a selling point...well knowing the stupidity of cod fans they will eat this up like they did the 15 year old fish ai that was suddenly "new and innovative". Suppose that's how they'll justify making cod fans on last gen system to pay standard price when cod should be 20$ standard with all the content they leave out.
Brix90  +   292d ago
I see the cool thing on here is to hate on COD...cool
DanteVFenris666  +   292d ago
It's not that it's cool. It's that people are sick of it. And us some people like me hate that money is going to a garbage game like that when it could be going to a company that takes more risks and innovative ideas.
