Call of Duty: Black Ops - PS3 Approaches 1 Million Online at One Time

The PS3 version of Black Ops topped out today at 860,000 people online at one time! And we just may see this number grow higher by the weekend! The prime time seems to be around 1-2PM Pacific Time (google a time zone converter) if you want to follow how high this number can get! (Call of Duty: Black Ops, PS3)

360 version hit 3 million first day
scar20  +   1842d ago
Who cares if it 3 million.
N4WAH  +   1842d ago
Who cares how many active players are online? There are more than enough gamers on all formats to have filled rooms. That's all that matters.
Red_Orange_Juice  +   1842d ago
Well CoD is heavly online game, when someone owns two systems and pays for Live, gets the game on 360 not to waste his Gold

looks like ps3 is also an fps console.
Rush  +   1842d ago
Lol at the PS3 fanboys above, "who cares, doesn't matter" if you didn't care why are you posting in an article about how many PS3 users where online at once?
N4WAH  +   1841d ago
Rush don't use words you don't understand like "fanboy"
but one you own is hypocrite. I said who cares and "I" play it on the 360. "Fanboys" get too caught up in sales, reviews and basically numbers in general. Guess which fanboys are guilty of this most? Oh yeah, you know who I am talking about.

Your assumptions just show how immature, insecure and ignorant, most of all hypocritcal, members on this site have become. Believe it or not people can give an "honest" opinion without being a flag waving brain washed zealot with a hidden agenda.

This could have something to do with the fact 360 owners have nothing else to buy...
joeymp  +   1842d ago
Ya but COD is the only good game 360 has, unlike PS3.
Mystogan  +   1842d ago
Halo Reach, Fable 3, Alan Wake, splinter Cell, Mass Effect 1(2),CrackDown 2.

Plenty of Games if you ask me, and besides we got Superior Multi-platform games.
TOO PAWNED  +   1842d ago
crackdown 2 lol
Imperator  +   1842d ago

I'll agree with Reach, but:

Alan wake - Decent game but huge disappointment. Repetitive gameplay, and the graphics were not that good.

SCC- Uh.. just uh.. and it's on PC as well.

ME1/2 - ME1 is on PC, and 2 is coming to PS3 early next year

Crackdown 2 - Come on man. A sequel that looks worse than the first one? Fail right there.

Fable III- Decent game, but again a disappointment. Nowhere near what Molyneux hyped up.
joeymp  +   1842d ago
@Imperator Exactly my thoughts. Thank you.
Mystogan  +   1842d ago
''Fable III- Decent game, but again a disappointment. Nowhere near what Molyneux hyped up''

Fable 3 a dissapointment? have you even played it? and Molyneux didn't hype anything. 81 metacritic

Crackdown 2 a Dissapointment? again have you even played it? Crackdown 2 is supposed to be fun Graphics are not a priority. Metacritic 70 and Mixed Reviews Depends on what you prefer ''Over the top'' graphics with average gameplay or ''meh not bad'' Graphics with awesome gameplay.

Alan Wake HUGE dissapointment? 83 Metacritic Confirmed you do not own a 360 nor played Alan Wake or any of the games i mentioned

Looking forward to GT5, NFS Hot Pursuit, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Killzone 3

LOLO!LO!L!O!LOLol "Ya but COD is the only good game 360 has, unlike PS3." LOL!!!

im no ps3 hater but come on now, thats just retarded. what does ps3 have thats better online than cod?hmmm lets see, mag? uncharted 2? facepalm, i mean seriously, those games just blow when compared to cod online. top that off by going back to your original statement about cod being the only good game, theres a little game called halo and halo>cod
Zachmo182  +   1842d ago
Haha. But whats the topped played game on PS3? YEA shut thought so.

At least xbox exclusive top the most played game.
RememberThe357  +   1842d ago
Actually I think MAG is a better online game.
SpinalRemains138  +   1841d ago
Exactly! 360 will always do better with FPS. That's their demographic for cryin out loud. Of all the 360 owners in the world (Eh hem I mean USA and England), I will guarantee that 97 percent of them got the system for Halo.

PS3 owners are simply upgrading from a long line of great AAA titles and 2 previous systems. Hell, the 360 controller says it all. It has triggers.

Just let it go. Just remember, that is HIS opinion. What he may see as a disappointment might be a great game for others. Seriously, the 360 has had a LOT of games this year, whether you think they are a disappointment or not. And how could that many people agree with joeymp? Seriously? You must be a blind fanboy.. I'll tell you that much...

The popularity of shooters in different regions is as follows: NA>Western Europe>Eastern Europe>Rest of the World

Considering the fact that a majority of the 360's install base is concentrated in NA, only 4 time zones apart, and the majority loves shooters, its no surprise the 360 can reach numbers like that.

360/ps3 have the same p2p networking buddy, all it mean is there are more players around you to play the game. that mean less latency.

unless your a cheap gamer and cant afford xbl or a decent ISP speed. lol
vhero  +   1842d ago
Sorry but from that pic you can't seriously say it's taken from the PS3 version.. The buttons are hidden so we don't knwo what version. It could be taken from the wii version. But honestly most PS3 users are too busy saving there pennys for GT5 right now.

Those numbers look bad compared to 360 version
Mystogan  +   1842d ago
Yeah i thought..meehh while for other games it would be a huge succes like Killzone or Uncharted.


How am i supposed to know? but probably a lot more then PS3 does.
Black ops sold a lot more on 360 as expected.

ppl say tht is big...When PS3 fanboys go 'we don't need multiplat games, when we hav killzone, resistance etc' yet CoD is basically the most played game on ps3.
just saying.

Come on dude, don't be such a hater... -.- I'm a ps3 owner and yes we have awesome exclusives but there are multiplatform games i love like...F.E.A.R. and Red Dead Redemption.

Does it really matter, you can only play a game with like 2-18 players so as long as you have that many people playing you are good.

The only reason i bought it was cuz a guy had beaten story mode and return it rite when i was gonna ask for a copy of it and i got it used at $45 now thats a deal.

People are stupid. If you went around telling everyone you have premium air that ONLY cost $50.00 a year they would pay.

People think

Spend more money = must be better.

sometimes its true but alot of the times its not
JayD-1K  +   1841d ago
people are playing other games at the moment? I didn't pick it up soooooo..i'm a hater? or maybe, i'm playing MAG and MOH right now! I might pick it later but, I usually wait for most of the bugs to be fixed before I pick a COD game for my PS3....and my 360 for that matter!

Well I'm sure most PS3 owners are busy doing other stuff that does not involve playing games. Such as working. Either that or playing other games beside Black Ops.

Even though I own Black Ops, I'm currently working through my backlog consisting of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Nier, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Disgaea 3, Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland, and I play Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Uncharted 2 online too. Unlike a bunch of people who own a console and CoD games and call themselves hardcore gamers, I play everything. :-P
dragon82  +   1842d ago
I am also trying to get through some of my backlog while I wait for GT5 to come out. I have Borderlands, Assassin's Creed 2, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Bioshock 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 that I have yet to beat. not to mention I still need to finish Alan Wake and Mass Effect 2 on Xbox.

The same was said about MGS4, GOW3, LBP, Uncharted 2, etc....and the sales never backed the fanboy bravado. GT5 will be lucky to sell 5 million copies LIFETIME, based on the performance of the other PS3 top exclusives.

What 40 million? Surely you can't be serious (there are plenty of people upgrade to the new Ps3 slim). Not to mention back in Ps2 (+ 140 million), how much did GT5 sell (12-15 mil?). Really, you really think there are actually 40 million individual PS3 owner and they all want only GT5?

are you done with hearing everything on N4G yet after this one?

1 Million is great. Except, i only wish that KZ2/Resistant/Mag could do the same numbers.
