PS3 Regional Matchmaking Confirmed

Treyarch's community manager Josh Olin, also known as JD_2020, has confirmed that PS3 will have Regional Matchmaking just like Xbox360.

The story is too old to be commented.

FINALLY. Who to believe, David V something or Josh Olin?

WildArmed2481d ago

I'm guessing we'll be getting a more concrete answer very soon.

(once both of these guys talk it out, both of them will confirm w/e the reality is)

Though I'd assume they do have regional matchmaking.. it's not like it hasn't been done b4 on the Ps3.

Longrod_Von_Hugendon2481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

That's nice but do we have the option to search?

"People are driving me crazy? PS3 has both regional matchmaking and offline and online split-screen."

matchmaking but no search I guess.

Ahh N4G

They NEED to start figuring out a way to approve news ONLY with reliable sources.

"...and online split-screen"

Oooooooooh! Yes!

WildArmed2481d ago

Too bad they aren't doing split-screen double psn login like insominiac did with Resistance 2 :(

(and are doing w/ all-4-one (next installment 4 R&C))

You guys are fickle jack*sses.
Whenever anything goes wrong with a multiplatform title on the ps3, somehow it's microsoft's fault...bunch of wimpy finger pointing whiners

SSKILLZ2481d ago

No not Microsoft, Just the X360 -_-

Rayz3d6yW0lves2481d ago

And how was the 360 keeping this feature away from the ps3? Cos thats what you and your kind were saying earlier

redsquad2481d ago

No, we just blame MS fanboys for saying "LOOLLL... Inferior version confirmed" all the time on the flimsiest of 'evidence'

BlackSharinganX2481d ago

lets just start on the map content for MW2 you dunce, MS payed 1 million dollars to get those content in a month of advance than the ps3, so maybe thats the reason we are thinking the same, why cant a buddy of mine log in a second account on his own account instead of a guest?, the ps3 did it on resistance 2, so they cant give a load that they cant do it on the ps3, cause resistance 2 is about 2 or 3 years old. thats why we blaming MS.

the search is an option like it was in WaW.
You can prefer local search.

TrevorPhillips2481d ago

Finally, after reading David's side of the twitter I was worried and now hearing Josh Olin's side im suprised :)

theonlylolking2481d ago

Thats a a relief. I now want to know who should we trust from treyarch.

saint_john_paul_ii2481d ago

theres no dual PSN logins for Split screen gaming though

Paralex2481d ago

Complain to Sony about that.

lodossrage2481d ago

Games like Little Big Planet and Resistance 2 allow dual log in and split screen. So why can't black ops?

kasasensei2481d ago

@lodossrage
Laziness?
So many devs don't give a f* about that features or others like screen or video capture or even custom soundtrack....

AssassinHD2481d ago

Sony released a firmware that enabled dual login over a year and a half ago. They leave the decision up to the individual developers though. It would be better to have a consistent solution, but you can't blame Sony for the option being absent. Treyarch has the tools necessary to implement the feature, and they chose not to.

MasterGuru2481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

What? But Josh Olin confirmed it last week. Remember? First, there was news that PS3 couldn't have dual PSN log-ins splitscreen then, Josh came out with a statement saying this will be featured in the PS3 for Black Ops. If this is true, that we will not have dual PSN sign-ins simultaneously, then I guess Josh Olin should not be believed on this topic too. He clearly wants to boost up some sales by lying to the consumers. F-u Josh.

Paralex2481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

They obviously chose not to for a specific reason. Invalid reasons: laziness, console preference, "don't give a f*ck", etc. The 360 and PS3 versions are identical except for the dual login feature and now Treyarch is the bad guy? That's ridiculous. Gamers always find a way to complain. It's ok though, I won't be getting the game for my PS3 anyway. Why you would want to do split-screen multiplayer is beyond me anyway, unless you and your partner want to go negative every game for the lack of viewing space.

"and now Treyarch is the bad guy?"
Well yes, they are, just like the others lazy devs.

"Why you would want to do split-screen multiplayer is beyond me anyway, unless you and your partner want to go negative every game for the lack of viewing space."
Split screen is fun when you have some REALS you know? probably not. XD

...do this dance with COD:MW2 as well? Or am I thinking about the whole "dedicated servers" fiasco? Regardless, it's obvious some people just need to be permanently fitted with gag-balls and muzzles, and have their thumbs sewn to their palms, so the can't Tweet. :o
