Cod has been butchered. The last one was an absolute monstrosity. . . And this one being Treyarch will no doubt be even worse. Sure world at war was good. . But that's basically because they took CoD4, the best cod ever, and just reskinned it with very little actual effort. Microsoft are not bothered about losing the perks of cod partnership. . . They know that cod had its day in the sun and is now a has been. Sony picking up the scraps.
I wasn't a fan of COD4 either but doesn't stop it from selling millions each time.
Not really a CoD fan either. Once they drop all the perks/killstreaks and bring it back to a simple but awesome WWII game I'll go ahead and pick it up. I think the whole moving to PS4 was really just a slap in the face of CoD fans though. Should have done it at the beginning of the generation. Undoubtedly, there are a bunch of CoD fans that really only play CoD, bought X1 because Xbox has always been the best place to play CoD, and now they are out of luck. I feel bad for those guys. Now you are going to have gaming tournaments with the CoD crowd playing on Xbox, and have to play now on a worse controller? Whole thing seems like a mess to me... glad I'm not a CoD fan lol... except CoD 1-3.
Cod is still selling millions upon millions. This is a huge win for Sony. Stop being so opinionated.
There's nothing wrong with being opinionated. Why would you tell someone not to express their opinion. It's THEIR opinion. Wether it's right or wrong it's still theirs.
this is actually one of the best cods minus the specialist thing that most won't like . I had so much fun playing it at E3. Don't knock it till you try it.
I wish they would drop regenerative health. That is my biggest bug bear with FPS's these days.
I had a blast playing AW at EGX last year. Then bought it on release played it for a couple of days then gave up on it.
Keep telling yourself that. Cod will be the best selling game this holiday. No matter how much you dont like it.
Want to love it. Many many cod4 memories. Ruined by exo jumping which was hated by the community. . . So what do Treyarch do?. . . Make the exo jumping even more Prominent. This should be the year cod fails. People need to wake up.
Exo jumping isn't even in Black Ops 3. If you're talking about that tiny boost jump to get through windows then yeah, that's not really anything like Advanced Warfare. It's like you're hating on something you don't even know anything about.
Bigger than Fallout 4?
The people who disagree his statement actually believe Halo will be the best selling video game. I think Call of Duty is going to be huge for Sony. It will sell millions as well as push console sales. The only games I can see even coming close to Call of Duty sales is Fallout 4 and Battlefront. If any game can beat COD in ales it is those 2.
Lol, treyarch makes the best cods. They never "butcher" cod, only infinity ward and now sledgehammer does.
I disagree. Cod has not been any good since MW2. After that sthe series fatigue had well and truly set in. Now it just looks a lot like titanfall without mech..what with all the wall running and futuristic weapons. Ill just keep playing TF. Its a better game. and in a year where halo, starwars and rainbow six are coming, I dont have much room for COD. But I always loved reading the comments. some of the funniest slating of COD I have ever read has been on N4G by Psfans. Now they are all proud to be associated with a big selling franchise like COD, apparently. Man, this console cycle has been entertaining to watch the companies and their fans change of perspectives. But one side is denying it more than the other, thats for sure...
Microsoft must told you this directly. Oh...
thatirishgamer this fall when advertisements play for some of the biggest 3rd party games they will all end with ps4 logo and some exclusive wording that may not matter to you or me as core gamers who visit gaming sites daily. but believe me to casuals that will make a huge difference and you lost all your cedibility when you said treyarch are worst come on man. I am not even a cod fan and I know treyarch cod entries are some of the best in the series. please stop trying to hate so much batman already was with ps4 and had a exclusive bundle mgs 5 is with ps4 and 3xclusive bundle along with marketing destiny taken king is also getting a new ps4 bundle along with exclusive content and exclusive marketing call of duty 30 days of exclusive dlc and marketing deal the biggest star wars also gonna be aligned with ps4 for marketing if you think these won't help Sony move a lot of hardware than you don't know nothing about business side of things. Xbox 360 was basically successful for these sort of deals they made with some of the biggest 3rd party publishers did you know that Sony hire the advertisement firm that was working with ms on Xbox 360? so they may know a thing or two about selling consoles
Treyarch>infinity ward. Just saying. Infinity Ward lost its touch after MW2
I feel like they are focusing way too much on Esports.. Somewhat off putting for me!
I watched the eSport event they had today, and wasn't a big fan of what I saw. It's not that it's a bad game by any mean, but personally, I would love to at least have one CoD title go back to what made CoD4:MW so good. Fast paced multiplayer, but without all the added gimmicks and the overly futuristic weaponry. Of course, it's all a matter of personal preferences. Some wish the series would go back to WWII, others love it the way it is right now. For me, Call of Duty was at its best in MW and MW2. As for competitive gaming, it makes sense for them to go with the console with the biggest install base.
I like COD with 3 KS UAV, Bomber, Attack chopper leave it at that please
I love CoD... But esports are stupid
If those that want a Real competitive eSport Halo ESport is coming this fall. Best part the controller is the one your use to already . Who up for some real Challenging matches . Halo
Just hope and pray that the servers don't go down, like the last event lol
LOL Halo Call of Duty destroys Halo.
Wow if this causes outrage that'd be ridiculous. Its just a platform, who cares where you play as long as you are a fan of the series. And the hatred this series garners is unwarranted. People just want to hate on what really successful. At least CoD changes more often than an annual series like Madden.
"Its just a platform, who cares where you play as long as you are a fan of the series." You are probably missing the point of why tourney guys are pissed by this. They are used to playing on their xbox's. Nobody really cares that sony got marketing and early DLC. Its the forcing of people to ditch their prefered controllers and general set up. Its like asking counter strike players to stop playing with KB/M on PC just because a console manufacture want to tell casuals that their console is 'the home' of said game. It was hilarious watching that sony exec drum it out again and again. Almost as odd as watcthing PSfans on N4G (specifically) suddenly say they like COD. Shall we just forget that you guys were calling this game dudebro shooter 101? only six months ago for like...the last seven years? Ill get hit with a million disagrees but not one of them will answer that last question. @akurtz Firstly its flex..not "flez" secondly. Yes they all suddenly are...do read the comment besides my own, eh? This was comedy gold though, bruh.. "There has always been the praise camp and hate camp from both console players. " Really? What N4G have you been signed up too?...lol "Shut up." Off topic and immature. If you dont like my opinion and dont have a meaningful response, and clearly you dont.... sit down and be quite. Better yet, go take the day off.
@flez it is a dude bro shooter. And no, not everyone suddenly likes it again. There has always been the praise camp and hate camp from both console players. Shut up.
I've never been a Cod addict and never will...Not my cup of tea, but if you don't see this as a marketing move, and a brilliant one at that, from sony, there is nothing i can do for you. Wanted or not Cod is a known franchise, and its esport tournament are well gifted ( one million dollars ) and I doubt that anyone, really involved in esports gives a damn about which console they'll be using to compete.
@sovkhan I have not been a COD fan in years, mate. And yes I see it for the marketing move it is. I am just speaking from a the tournament perspective. why whould they have to ditch their prefered controllers just because of company politics? Again..I dont play COD, sO I dont really have a dog in this fight outside a chuckle at some of the comments. "really involved in esports gives a damn about which console they'll be using to compete." I dont recall SF4 players feeling that way when the PS4 version of the game was suggested for the tournament. they even went back to X360. We'll see how it all goes, I guess. Said all I really care to say on the matter now, anyway.
So are you going to assume 1, or 2, or 100 people speak for everyone? Or are you going to assume that And that's incredibly stupid to say going from Xbox pad to PS4 is the same as telling a CS player they can't use keyboard and mouse anymore.
"So are you going to assume 1, or 2, or 100 people speak for everyone? Or are you going to assume that" And yet YOU are asserting that it wont be an issue...who are YOU speaking for then? "And that's incredibly stupid to say going from Xbox pad to PS4 is the same as telling a CS player they can't use keyboard and mouse anymore." If we are talking people prefered methods of playing a game..and we are..then yes. Its no less valid just because its a different type of controller. I have played a few FPS on my PS4 and to be honest that left analogue stick is in an annoying place for FPS games. always has been the case with dual shock controllers. There is a reason why pros prefer the xbox controller...but whatever..its just me saying it on behalf of everybody based on the fact that you dont like my opinion. I can live with that. The truth dont care about your opinion.
I said not a word about what may or may not be an "issue." I'm talking about you putting everyone in the same boat, as if popular opinion (which is really just cherry picked around here) is the same way that everyone feels. All you're doing is generalizing for the sake of trolling fanboys. And KB/M is an entirely different input method. It's not the same thing.
"All you're doing is generalizing for the sake of trolling fanboys." LOL...its always trolling when you dont agree with it, eh? Im am not making my point out of any kind of malice. You are the one who is getting worked up. I havent even bought a COD since MW3. Simply giving my two cents, just like everybody else. Im entitled to that. Just because you dont like what im saying dont make it trolling. I like how you are STILL hanging onto this KM/M thing as well while not references inth the SF4 incident at all. Guess its you who is cherry picking not me. This article was about the COD tounrney scene so focusing on this now for the last part of my comment. Because Im done talking about this with you after this: "as if popular opinion (which is really just cherry picked around here) is the same way that everyone feels" I was speaking on the opinion of tounrnament players on COD. the majority of which are Xbox players. Is that suddenly a lie or some sort of troll statement now because sony bought some DLC? dont make me laugh. This is getting dumb now. You are missing the point..its about the choice of those players. If you dont see that, then cool. We are done here.
I love how people say they dont care... But are here to comment and bash it lol... Seems to me u care alot:)
Flexluger are you serious?? Lmao! Did you say titanfall is better than a treyarch cod??? What??? Titanfall was kinda fun to me for 3 weeks and then I realized it couldn't scratch the cod itch. It was basically cod with mechs and bots. Never should an fps have bots! Treyarch cods are always fun to play for years.
I have played every single cod game (mw2 being my favourite) but Titanfall absolutely destroys every cod and battlefield game put together. It's more fun, more chaotic and has the best fps mechanics of them.
@bazooka Actually alot of people are still Playing it including me. No need to be bitter dude I'm sure not having the console to play it is blindfolding you from the true great games this generation.
