Yet people will still buy the next COD in hordes, just sad.
hamburger123  +   1409d ago
Whats more sad is that people have a console just for the COD games

Regardless of these issues you guys can't deny that Call of Duty is a fun game that is awesome to play in your free time. You guys talk about call of duty like its horrible... its still fun.
Rainstorm81  +   1409d ago
it may be fun but most other games would get dragged through the mud, if they had the types of issues COD does.

COD is the new Madden.....people will buy it in droves no matter the problems. But like madden the truth will unfold eventually and people will tire of the same issues every year, but how many years will it take?

Its the first Console gen where people can go online and play against each other, which has created alot of buzz in the Console community. I would give it a few more releases at best before people start tiring out from the repeated rehashes and the sales start dipping.

havent had a chance to play it long enough without having issues to know if its fun ..

You could actually play online against other people on the Xbox and the PS2. I'm assuming this generation of consoles is your first, otherwise you'd know that.

I hated mw2 but I do like black ops, but well said.

I truly don't get a lot of the problems a lot of people here complain about when I play but still. That is true.

I totally disagree. Halo 3, Gears Of War (2 at least), Warhawk, MAG, Street Fighter IV, Killzone 2, BattleField series etc just to name a few. Every single game with a popular online mode has issues. Some more severe than others but overall they're largely the same or similar and none of these games got "dragged through the mud".

Whats even sadder is people crying about a game they seemingly care little about.
Go away and play whatever game it is other than COD and leave the rest of us in peace.

"Whats even sadder is people crying about a game they seemingly care little about"
How could a gamer NOT care that the most popular current franchise in gaming is so screwed up?

"LOL PS3 cod has as many patches GT5"
Updates are considered bad to you trolls now? What's next, is releasing games considered a "pathetic and desperate attempt" to get people to buy game consoles? lol

Anyways, time for me to upgrade from Black Ops, to CoD4!

Saw a comment within your xbox fanboy comment history saying that Wipeout HD is not in 1080p at 60fps. Well, it is. I know, I'm sorry if your crappy, unreliable American console can't handle it, but it's the truth. That's what that game was made for. To show the power of TEH CELL.

Blacktric  +   1409d ago
Just because some troll said a retarded thing about a PS3 game, doesn't make calling the Xbox 360 "crappy and unreliable" necessary. If he wants to attack him, he should attack him and him only, not the console he supports or its whole fanbase. Oh but whatever. He joined 10 days ago so I guess it's just a troll thingy.

What u call patches on GT5 i will call extra contend or bonuses TROLLl!.... there no fixing anything there is nothing to fix ( well maybe the dog on madrid or the bottom of a particular car...lol) there just adding more staff 4 free... you haven't hear that word in a while!.
BTW.... the issues they just address are the ones i notice the most.... i really hope it gets fix!
Death2494  +   1409d ago
I think Geometry Wars ran at 1080p, not quite sure though. I keep wanting anyone to tell me a "polygon heavy" 1080p xbox360 game. Plz don't throw Crysis2 in there because it's only 720p and it doesn't utilize 4xMLAA.

[ For those who don't know what that means. MLAA is equivalent of 16xMSAA. The 360 taps out at 4xMSAA. The AMD 6000 series cards are just now getting MLAA. You guys can thank Santa Monica Studios.]
I mean they couldn't even do Halo: Reach justice and run it at 720p. COD never ran at 720p.
ian72  +   1409d ago
I thought Pandemic was the first to use MLAA on Saboteur not Santa Monica.
I could be wrong though.

Thanks Ian732, you're right. Sorry for the slight misinformation. I love how i have all these disagrees, yet not one person is naming at "shader heavy" 1080p title for the 360. Can someone tell why they couldn't even get Halo: Reach to run at 720p?
Droidanomix  +   1408d ago
Death2494  +   1408d ago
@ Droidanomix,
Thanks for allowing everyone to see your level of maturity. You might want to spend a little more time looking up that "shader heavy" 1080p 360 game, instead of wasting your time with childish comments. Forza does 8 cars at 720p. Gran Turismo 5 does 16 premium cars at 1080p. Gears of War 3 looks damn good, and I'm more of a Project Gotham fan than Forza. If anyone can name a "shader heavy" 1080p title on 360, i'll retract all my claims made against the 360.

KingLizzle  +   1409d ago
It doesn't resolve the hard freezes as they haven't been able to reproduce those problems so far. It does make a huge improvement to the party system and matchmaking, especially for those on moderate NAT. Check out the alternate source above where I've gone through the actual changes the patch makes in a 'real world' scenario.
AllroundGamer  +   1409d ago
they haven't been able to reproduce those problems, because they don't really have any PS3s to test it, they just guess it's fixed and release a patch :D
KingLizzle  +   1408d ago
@AllroundGamer They do, however, work with members of the PS3 community to test patches and try to reproduce problems. I'm part of a small group of PS3 users who have been playing with David Vonderhaar (the guy in charge of multiplayer at Treyarch)for a few weeks trying to isolate some of the issues.

I'm glad that they continue to work to make it a better game but this game has been out for a month and it's still experiencing issues that most games don't have when they hit shelves.

I might get it some more matches this weekend if the stability is any better. "Might" being the operative word because the DC Online Universe beta has had my attention since I got it.

when i download it's more then 200 kb in a second , so it's fast and i even can be the host but i always lag , i make it default i lag , i make it local i still lag , i make it local only same appen , always lag , when i test my network in the pc i get 1.9mb and ping 37 !!! still lag!!! .. i think it's in the game not the network , i lag in both company >.< .. im not trolling , i like the game and want to play it but the lag makes it really sucks and worst then Mw2 !! this is really annoying >.< ..

@ Dark Cloud, I had that same connection, is it DMAX? Now i have a better one thank god: http://www.speedtest.net/re...

But yeah, the thing is in Call of Duty, if you don't live in America and the host is an American, your pretty much screwed. I'm from Puerto Rico, and i've NEVER had 4 full bars, cuz the host is always an American and it's kind of hard to kill them bcuz everyone in your other team has 4 bars, and you only have 3. Even when i play with my American friends, i still have 3 bars...But once i was host and all my Puerto Rican friends had 4 bars and every American had 3. I think the problem is that If your from a different country, even if you had a good connection, your not gonna get 4 bars unless the host is from the same country as you. THIS is why i play Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 and Halo Reach. I don't lag in those games.

Chaxo  +   1409d ago
You really think I don't know about this filter connections option ?
I tried all of 'em. Default / Local / Local Only and it STILL pairs me up with Americans.

I think part of the reason why is because I made my PSN account when I was in the States.
But then again doesn't the matchmaking system pairs you up with "good connection possible" ?

Never had this problem before with MW and MW2.

Dellis  +   1409d ago
They are better then IW, who didn't give a damn about PS3

didn't add Trophies or even RUMBLE support.

They should release or create a patch that improves the Resolution of the game, this game looks better on 360 not because of the textures but rather their resolution is much higher.
Sizzon  +   1409d ago

People will keep buying CoD until there is no value-added content. I really thought MW2 would be my last CoD game (was pretty fed up with the danger close tubers), but Treyarch has NAILED IT. What a balanced game. Hope they fix up those issues for the PS3'ers soon!

What type of programmers does Treyarch and Infinity Ward have hired over there? Glad I gave this game away. Treyarch clearly are just a bunch of fucking amateurs. "Oh boy Treyarch team! These problems in our shit game are mighty hard to fix. DERP HERP"

CaliGamer  +   1408d ago
The backlash they have gotten from this game is epic and well deserved.

I think I can speak for many here when I say that I gave Activision a chance, but once mid January hits I will be selling my copy of Black Ops in anticipation of KZ3. Better sell yours before the big crash boys.
