As many of you may have already heard, the First Strike Map Pack DLC will be available for download on PlayStation Network March 3rd. The question is, how many people from the PlayStation community still care about Call of Duty: Black Ops?
It would be nice to see Activision see a huge decrease in sales because of their lack of PS3 support. Probably won't matter, though.
Activision is the devil of the gaming industry
$15 pricetag It went to the Xbox first I hate Black Ops, Activisioon and Treyarch I won't be playing it once Killzone 3 comes out I'm selling Black Ops so I can afford Killone 3 Killzone 3 isn't the only thing huting First Strikes sales.
Not devils, just pricks
I hope people take a stand this time around.
COD fans are blind there is no way there missing out on more cod day one Im a Kz fan and don't think a single COD touches killzone 2 i still prefer kz 2 to the three beta yeah its not perfect but it takes alot more skill then kz3 i mean the sniper has gone from one hit one kill to how many hits and a rapider reload? I will play kz3 online but im about its story since the demo got me mad excited then its back too kz 2 online until socom 4
I think you mean the STA rifle, which is a one shot rifle with a power scope, not a sniper. The VC32, on the other hand, is a one shot sniper rifle.
I mean the fucking rifle that the scout has in killzone 2 the one the scout has in kz3 is not one shot one kill and is the sta rifle the sabetuer has in killzone 2 cause im not on about that
@danger If you hit em in the head it is lol
I think MS's bribe makes up for any lost sales.
thats a smart comment bubbles
im pretty sure it wont work, the income from the DLC will be huge, but i think it will send a message. I stopped playing BO ever since KZ3 Beta came out. Even though there are issues entering games, once you are in there are absolutely no signs of lag and the gameplay is fun, frenetic, and brutal.
It would be even better to see Activision see a huge decrease in sales because of Killzone 3 :)
" The question is, how many people from the PlayStation community still care about Call of Duty: Black Ops? " Alot.. Unfortunatly.
Yeah I notice that as well but when I look at these gamer's cards it is obvious what kind of gamer loves BO alot. Most of the hardcore BO players I know only play shooters. I ask them if they tried Dead Space 2 or a game like Uncharted 2 and they just stare blankly.
COD requires little skill to rack up points. Just having a good kill streak will get you all you need. KZ on the other hand is not going to hold your hand and give you free kills just because you killed 5 people without dying.
Most of my friends won't play Halo for the same reason. They can't get cheap kills. I hope KZ3 sells 10 million and gives Activision a bloody nose.
I love how in Killzone, it's not about YOUR K/D ratio. It's about you helping the team and what ever the mission is at the time. It is much more tactical and team based rather than.. RUN AND GUN EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF! Even in the objective based game types in COD no one works together.
Definitely. I rarely see people charge as a team to the objective in COD. It happens all the time in Killzone.
What's worse is that is the mindset of COD players who transition to other games. Look at MAG. It took a while before people started working as a team. And COD kids who are new Battlefield players are the same way. People would run and gun, when they needed to work together. COD has taught people that it's OK to game selfishly, when in fact it isn't. But let them game that way. I like knowing I have a medic on my team, or hear a guy say "Frag Out" before I go into a room and fall to fratricide. Killzone 3 is going to be great. Battlefield 3 is going to great. Man I hope the AAA games in Nov. overshadow the next COD. It's ok to have a running game people enjoy, but COD never changes, and I am looking for something fresh.
i can't tell you how cool it is to see 4 or 5 people around you in assassination there to protect you. or when you have to defend from explosive being planted and you see people actually trying to defend. its great but BC2 has that as well.
Only COD Map packs=Game Sharing FTW!!!
the CoD DLC won't suffer much in sales sadly. KZ3 though, will probably be a hit none the less.
crazyturkey I would actually have to disagree with you on this one.Usually I would say that it wont suffer but I truely think it will.I noticed alot more positive feedback on the beta then negative.The only people who had a hard time playing the beta where the kids or true cod fans who couldnt adjust to how much skill it actually takes to play Killzone and with all the problems plagued on the PS3 with BO I can see its sells lower then normal.I always say its those BO fans who are going to lose.Your going to pay $17 after taxes for crap that gets old fast while the rest of us who actually have skills get to play a game that offers more fun factor and teamplay.Bo got real old for me fast it was just to recycled and easy wich equals dud.Enjoy your loses Activision becuase theres more of that to come in the near future.
BOPS is like what,at least 6 million on PS3 Don't be surprised if that DLC outsells Killzone 3 significantly
I think it's 10 million now on PS3 and like 11.5 million on Xbox 360. Either way that's just sad. :(
that gross. it make me very sad to see so many people put money toward CoD when many games need these monies to thrive an you can bet if more games were success like CoD we would see more variety and more interestng sequels to go along. ACTIVISION IS A CANCER and so is CoD. lowers head in shame.
I'm happy to say I'm not one of them. You're right though, that DLC will outsell KZ3 most likely.
I can't wait to proudly pick up my copy of Killzone 3 Helghast edition on the 22nd and not look back on COD
COD fans are pretty intent juts to play COD. I had a guy on my PSN friends list send me a message for some reason just to tell me that he does not like Killzone. I asked has he played it and he said no which made me go, wtf? He then proceeded to tell me that Killzone is like gears which again made me go,"WTF!?" Then I proceeded to call him a colossal retard. Play the game first then form an opinion. His response to this was "I don't like Killzone." Talk about your blinders being on. Then again all he plays is BlOps and GH3.
this make me laugh very much. i hope you removed from flist. he probably 9 years old. also wtf with americans liking to shoot people so much? i think america has more people buy FPS than the rest of world.
1.4 million in the first 24 hours for the 360 version of the DLC. The PS3 will see similar numbers because there are way more fans of COD than there are haters. That's just the way it is... Like I post before somewhere else... COD fans>you COD haters.... source of 360 sales numbers... my site. http://showtimeforfree.com/...
LOL! stick to your broken, subpar graphics/shooter, autoaim, noob hackers, noobtubers, and keep help Bobby Kotex wiping his ass with your cash. BAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
KZ3 isn't available on Amazon! Only the Helghast edition! What's going on?!?!?!?!?! FYI about Black Ops, there are plenty of PS3 gamers playing it, also I ran into Gamestop and I didn't see any USED Black Ops on PS3 (not that I wanted to buy)
Im still hating myself for getting black ops. At least I got a ok trade in value.
lucky you i just need to find the time to go to the store and trade it in for something better.
I never fell for it & it does feel great! srry kid :(
First Strike DLC?? What's that?
That thing you have installed on your HDD.
lol what? i don't have a shittybox
People need to send Activision a message by not purchasing the map pack, boycotting cod and buying Battlefield 3(can't wait!).
they should offer the DLC at a discounted price for all the problems the PS3 version has. wont happen though.
I got the First Strike dlc..you aint missing anything the maps suck!!
I'm not getting the map pack because I regretted every single expansion pack from cod. It seems like the map packs are never as good as the original maps; not only that it takes away from the maps I like playing because I don't get to play them as much. World at war I liked outskirts but with FOUR additional mappacks I never got to play outskirts anymore. Mw2 put in 2 old mw1 maps in each mappack and only carnival and salvage were good, most dlc mw&cod maps feel like they were rejects of the original game and they're just trying to get extra money for horseshit. So as far as cod dlc I'm finished and I'm not getting mw3, most games wait 2 years on releasing a sequel,..activation releases I every single year, ie another four hour blaise campaign with average graphics and multiplayer is pretty much the same damn thing just different maps. Why not just skip a year like uncharted,gears,killzone and release something really nice, something worth $60.(every 2 years) focus on improving graphics and making campaign longer.
I rather save my money and buy the fallout new Vegas dlc or stacker
Call of Duty died for me with the IW exodus. I didn't bother buying Black Ops and do not care about this series anymore.
I'm mad ps3 owners bought the game.. speak with your dollars and dont buy a product until they deliver a proper release. It's a blessing for sony, all the black ops issues means more ps3 owners will spend their money on first party titles instead of third party titles.
I am still willing to bet first strike dlc will sell over 1 million in a week, mw2 dlc for 360 sold over 2.5 million in first week and over 1.5 million on ps3 in first week. Vast majority of call of duty players don't go on forums to read about games or reviews.
I don't care about the problems it's still the best online game around. Day one for me. As for Killzone It's good but not for 60 dollars.
Black Ops? What's that?
Blops was a game that trillions bought & love to this very day & on into realms unknown. The game was designed purely & simplistically as an insult to anyone that plays it. yet not one single person ever realized that they were the one in the chair. Gknot Edit/OT: Blops dlc will sell like hotcakes & KZ3 will drop lesser #'s
I don't see any reason why that DLC will be doomed. There are tons of people playing this game, and not much will stop them from buying more maps for it.
