Well, today, I have gotten an early copy of Call Of Duty MW2, put the disk in and what do I find out?
Well if there's one thing you can credit IW for, it's that they know their way around a PS3. It's been awhile, but I think CoD4 was the same way. I know they had stated that each version was built from the ground up, no lazy porting.
that mw2 ps3 blu-ray looks gorgeous and about IW,they really knew the ps3 well props to IW,gotta respect them guys
Good Job IW! No worries about a bad port.
sub-hd on both versions though. ;)
Why use cheap, replaceable HDD space when the disk drive can do the work? Guess the drive's replaceable as well though, just takes a hundred bucks, a call to Sony, and a few weeks.
I cant believe it's $150!
There are lots of games that don't require install, I don't see why this is still relevant.
This still doesn't resolve the hate I have for Infinity Ward/Activision. Seriously.. No dedicated servers for PC?
I'm with ya buddy.. I canceled my preorder for both the PS3 and PC version. Screw em.
Why does N4G hate MW2 and IW ?? They did a good job with this game, and its true, they know their way around the PS3 very well. Look at COD4 and COD5. They were both identical on PS3 and 360. It just shows what a great engine they've made.
I prefer an install. When it comes down to what is better it is always better to have it on the HDD instead of the disc. The system can access data faster. I want the option to install all my games. Just like how it is on the 360.
MW1 had no install either.. IW know what they are doing with the hardware
The PS3 version didn't even have the ability to mute other players until like 3 months later. Yeah...little annoying kids caught on a bit faster than that.
I have MW2 right now, i'm on the gulag...my favorite level so far.
call of duty 4 didn't have an install did it? i didn't expect this game to have one either.
not to mention they did a pretty good job on the COD4 for PS3... so it's no surprise.. still i'll be skipping MW2 till late next year... I just dont have the funds to buy it. i still have plenty of games i need to get through this holiday season and the there's the PS3 flood of games starting friom January all the way through summer.
"well they did work with NaughtyDog so i'm sure some of that know how came off onto them" LOL u had ta spin this somehow didn't ya. Nice execution btw. I woulda missed it if I hadn't looked hard enough. I agree with u on ur other point though. After hearing about the Bad Company 2 beta, I have no need to buy MW2 this year or any other game for that matter. Time ta start saving for next year. The Wands GOW3 Bad Company 2 EA MMA Splinter Cell: Conviction(PS3) Agent The Last Guardian Shenmue 1 and 2 on PSN And thats only the stuff I know about :)
if you had too look hard then it means that what every you were looking for wasn't there, which ultimately translates to You = Fanboy!!! because they always see things that arent there. I stated facts. and we've known for quite some time that ND games on PS3 didn't do installs, and we know that IW has been sharing tech back and forth with ND, AND we know that IW has got it's hand around PS3 since they did an awsome job with COD4... SOOO i can only assume that all that help make MW2 what it is today on the PS3...
Instead of having a "install screen", if you just put a spinning coin down in the bottom of the screen for 2 minutes the most everyone will think that there was no install. Also, by making cut scenes non-skipable, you can fool everything into thinking there are no loading sequences as well. I think Uncharted had great presentation, but I get tired of everyone touting it as a no install, no loading, game.
No one ever said it was a no loading game. You can skip the cutscenes. There is no install, dumbass. There is no file on the hard drive from playing Uncharted 1 or 2. Maybe you should look up what install means. Furthermore, why is it a big deal? The games caches when you start and then streams from the disc as you play. Maybe you should stop being a Fighter Against Games and just enjoy them.
Well that's good I suppose.
I wouldn't expect it to have an install. The game doesn't look that great graphically.
Yet MGS4 and Motorstorm did. LMFAO they really don't look that great, and they still had poor load times. *BTW don't make me get the great low res textures from MGS 4.*
@goldene355- Yeah, because what determines if a game has an install or not is ONLY it's graphics /sarcasm BTW: A game doesn't have to be a Killzone 2 to look great. For a multiplat, MW2 looks outfreakingstanding! I suggest you re-watch the E3 gameplay snow level and read ALL the previews of the game so far. Everyone has said great things about the graphics.
COD4 has the same quality of low rest textures and yet it had it first since MGS4 came after.
Since it is oblivious you talk trash for attention, here you go. We all see you, OK? You hate everything PlayStation related, we get it; get over yourself. It's actually getting pathetic to see you commenting on these stories with so much negativity. *BTW, you can wind low res textures in any game...
I'm not bashing the PS3. I'm a PS3 and PC gamer. I don't own a 360. From what I've seen the game doesn't look much better than COD4. It's still a good looking game.
@ Remeber, God how long is it going to take. I don't really hate the ps3. I just hate people who make it there pride and joy. Just a heads up *if you haven't read threw my comments* LBP is one of my favorite games this gen, and trust me, Today isn't the first day I have said that.
Then why don't you stop calling them out?
I actually don't remember motorstorm having an install. I could be wrong as I haven't played it in a loooong time.
MGS4 looks gorgeous on my tv. You're either drunk or still gaming using an SD tv nai girl.
Then why did you call out goldene? His comment had NOTHING to do with the PS3 being his pride and joy yet you decided to start a flame war by mentioning MGS4 and Motorstorm. Two PS3 exclusives. Are you that blind?
Yuor comment is a double edge... because the way you come across, you sound like the xbox 360 is your pride and joy... whats wrong with people loving the hell out of there investment in entertainment. arent they not allowed to have pride over their 600-300 dollar purchase? who the Hell are you to tell them how to feel if they want to express there joy of owning said electronics for entertainment... please lets not turn this thread into a flame.. no where in his comment did he even put the PS3 on any pedestal. nor was his comment making it his pride and joy. because for everything you say about PS3 owners the same can be said about you. I swear fanboys/fangirls like you are the worst. people just cant have a moment to enjoy themselves without vicious and selfish wolves like your self coming in to spoil the fun for someone. GTFO of here or stay on topic, as the fanboy zone is one tab to the right -->
"I don't really hate the ps3. I just hate people who make it there pride and joy." So dedicating your life on a crusade to crush these people makes you better? Or you think you're time is being better spent? When you figure out how you're different, let us know.
now they figured out how not to put install on the PS3 version, so how about putting dedicated server support for the PC? (I'm a gaming PC and PS3 owner)
Yea. The dedicated server issue and limiting games to 18 players is keeping me on the fence on whether or not to purchase the game. I'll probably still purchase it anyways though.
If you got any sympathy for the PC Gamers' plight, buy used.
you can't buy it used since when you install it, you have to register it online through steam. That means it's tied to an account on steam. So buying an account that can get scammed in the long wrong is just plan dumb.
The 360 is a piece of sh!t
I saw Steve Ballmer doing his wife on top of the 360, once.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
Impossible. Steve is gay.
laugh out loud. i love people like you elizabeth and saaking. perfect droid examples.
+ KZ2 Features No Ps3 Install + Uncharted 2 Features No Ps3 Install
I knew about this 2 days ago, I have friends at GameStop an I got to look at the harded COD:MW2 an hold it, but yeah an if I remember right it takes 30MB on memory for a file. Plus 1080p, if that is a big thing for anyone.
That's upscaled not real 1080p it's fake. The real resolution is 600p.
In all honesty, do u thk the fact that the resolution being only 600p will stop anyone from buying this game? Most of the people who buy this game won't know and more importantly won't care. @xiao- Relax man, do u wanna marry me or something? Jump off my junk will ya. I KNOW its upscaled, all I'm saying is that if u put the game in front of someone without telling them the resolution, they WOULDN'T be able to tell what the resolution is. BTW it IS HD. HD is anything above 500p. Just because its not 720p does NOT mean its not HD. Do more research, please, for everyones sake. Bubbles for Steck67! This HD crap is just fuel for the fanboy wars. The naked eye CAN'T tell the difference. In fact, there is no such thing as "sub-hd", its not even an official term lol. There ARE lower forms of HD, but sub-hd theoretically doesn't even exist.
So what its still HD. @Xio it is HD, its above SD is it not?
@deadredneck666 You are a complete moron, it's not in 1080p. It's like 600p or whatever Modern Warfare 1 was, it's not even HD. Just upscaled to fool you. @deadredneck666 edit Oh, so now your learned how to spell. Good job! Now you are trying too hard deadredneck666, you're starting to make mistakes again.
CoD isnt about graphics but more of gameplay, besides, unless if you count the pixels, it's hardly distinguishable betwen 6XXp to HD. Like GTA 4 PS3 and GTA 4 360 for example. It's said that the PS3 has a 630p native resolution, but it's hardly unnoticable when compared to the 360 versions 720p. Nai, it's sub-HD so you're half correct
NaiNaiNai, mw2res = 600p; if (mw2res < 720p) System.out.println("Moder n Warfare 2 is SD."); Output: Modern Warfare 2 is SD. :D SD resolutions are all resolutions below 720p. HD resolutions are resolutions equal to or above 720p.
Actually, all resolutions from 480i (576i PAL) and down are considered SD, and between 480p <---> 720p is considered ED (Enhanced Definition), and 720p or greater = HD.
Superior PS3 version confirmed.
Both versions will be the same, yet we'll still have people claiming superiority.
Saaking is the stupidest member of this site. He said: "Xbox live doesnt give you a better online experience because you pay for it!!" But yes, It actually does. Maybe not much, but it does. And he cant even face that 1 fact. A total douche.
guys picked this game up tonite for the ps3. never played any cod game before. it looks nice and all trying for a realistic look. one thing for sure this game graphically is no kz2, not even close. btw there might be some installing going on definitely alot of loading but it is very well designed and hidden so it does not effect the flow of the game.
but when its crysis vs killzone 2 you all dissapear, i personally believe killzone 2 looks better than crysis as seen from my posts, but when i do speak in defense of killzone 2 you all leave when its vs crysis, whats wrong with you, modern warfare 2 looks tons better than what ps3 fans are saying and thats even from low quality vids on youtube, get a life ps3 fans
Yes, because Crysis is a PC game. It has a higher hardware allowance required to look "like that". Killzone 2 has limited specs to work with and the hardware is locked. If someone brings up Crysis in comparison to Killzone 2, what is the outcome going to be? Really? Of course Crysis is going to look better, but the fact Killzone 2 has to be compared to Crysis rather than a console game says more.
Is bringing Crysis up suddenly going to make MW2 look better than KZ2? I don't understand why it was even brought up other than to maybe coddle MW2 and degrade KZ2.
What do u mean u "personally" think killzone looks better? Because the only way you can argue that is artistically. Technically, Crysis has any game beat
that was so randon and pointless what does crysis have to do with modern warfare 2? are you trying to say modern warfare 2 looks as good as crysis? because it doesn't which is why people say MW2 doesn't look as good as kz2 whereas far as i'm concerned it being better then crysis is debatable. i think you should take your own advice and get a life stop bringing up randon things and tryi to pretend like your a ps3 owner we all know your a sad little xtwat.
its a freaking PC. The PS3 is an amazing CONSOLE. The PC is an amazing......PC. YOU KNOW THIS. NOBODY CARES ABOUT CRYSIS BUT PC GEEKS. THE PS3 HAS AMAZING VISUALS FOR A......... CONSOLE. WHO ARE U.
If you tell guerrilla games or naughty dog to make a game without any consideration for optimization or hardware limitations then they would easily create something that destroys crysis in every way. Fact is crysis is not really that impressive of a technical achievement when you consider 99% of other developers could of done the exact same thing if they had no regard for the average consumers PC specs. Crysis is just a very high resolution game, thats all there is to it, uncompressed assets.. big woop... seems they forgot the gameplay. Its just a tech demo for elitist douchebags to fap over and the ONLY PC defense now that sonys exclusives have destroyed pretty much everything else.
That's great and all but can we please have equal features? I'm not sure if it was the PS3's fault but we weren't able to mute people in the lobby and we weren't able to check out gamer profiles in-game and both those features on the 360 in MW1 I think. Not a big deal, but I hope we get the exact same version.
No difference on my ps3, 500GB, blockbuster here I come.
don't understand the fuss over installs, id gladly give up 5gb space on my HDD,to shorten load times, even if it was just 10 sec to 6 sec. i dont care still got 135gb out of the 500gb 412gb after insall. seems like to many ps3 owners are ignoring one of the consoles best features. you can get a 500GB HDD for less than $100
How cheap and unskilled most developers are, I expected the game to have an install on the PS3 but now after this news, I now have complete respect for Infinity Ward!!!!
