Xbox 360 the exclusive console partner of Call of Duty XP

Activision has said that Xbox 360 is the "exclusive console partner of Call of Duty XP," meaning the PlayStation 3 won't be found anywhere at the two-day event.

The exclusive partnership was revealed in a FAQ for the convention, responding to the question: Which platforms will be available at Call of Duty XP?

They probably did this because everyone would be playing the Uc3 beta instead of their CoD. lol jk

OT- I dont understand why they only want xbox there, you would think they'd want to showcase it on all platforms and give everyone a chance to win using their prefered console or pc.

BakedGoods2333d ago

Microsoft is betting on CoD keeping them in the good with core gamers. So they're buying Activision's support. Activision doesn't care, they'll sell millions on both systems regardless.

b_one2333d ago

since from when CoD is core game ;) ?

egidem2333d ago

You can bet there's going to be a lot of twitchy players around knifing other people across the map. It's the kind of gameplay I don't like. I'm more of a tactical person, a Battlefield kind of person.

Did anyone pay attention to the player count drop when UC3 beta dropped? lol! It was practically a ghost town. XD!

When UC3, BF3, MW3 debut BlOps will be officially dead(except for zombies).

COD = hot garbage

haven't played MP in months and I don't miss it at all.

lol, funny isnt it you must have played the game a lot to first of all know what the avg player count for blackops usually is, then you must have played it after UC3 beta came out to know how much it has changed, you fail. A lot of people play blackops, its still the most popular game on PSN. Please stop being so ignorant cause either you also play blackops or you are just making sh!t up.

Same with what Sony does with Evo, they sponsor the event so you can only find PS3s there. It's just business guys

thereapersson2333d ago

Agreed. It's like buying advertising space so only your product gets mentioned.

Capitalism!

kaozgamer2333d ago

this makes ps3 owners get angrier at activision and turn towards dice. hopefully they will treat us well lol.

gamingdroid2333d ago

Yep, EA will take your money. They got that online pass waiting for you.

I thought after MW2, Sony fans were fed up with them. I heard the ps3 version was glitchy, buggy, broken, and online was a mess.

but we know how it goes. you'll say the game sucks, and you'll never buy another copy, but when the next game comes out, you'll pre-order it.

-_-;

zag2332d ago

Once I buy a game I don't re-sell it at any point.

I don't see the point in buying a game then re-selling it.

So it wouldn't faze me much if EA games can or can't be re-sold.

I think the crashing beta and the complaint about the poor multiplayer graphics on Uncharted 3 took care of that problem for CoD! lol jk

radphil2333d ago

Funny, except they fixed that issue out the next day, and that it's a BETA.

IdleLeeSiuLung2333d ago

That was a remark aimed at an obvious troll. Comment was not to be taken seriously.

DrRichtofen2332d ago (Edited 2332d ago )

Is nobody allowed to make a joke without being called a troll? I didn't say anything bad about CoD unlike what you said about U3. I even wrote jk. Maybe you shouldn't have taken my comment so seriously.

gamingdroid2332d ago (Edited 2332d ago )

I believe it was because your joke was stupid and not funny in any way, but was also obviously trolling.

How about you come back with a real good joke?

MS needs to make some games for their Console LOL!

insomnium22333d ago (Edited 2333d ago )

Nah why bother....? The diehards will defend it to their deaths with or without the games so it's much cheaper to take the no-game-route. That way it's a win-win for MS. BAM...there it is! LOL j/k.

TyrionL2333d ago (Edited 2333d ago )

@ insom
Unlike the PS3 zealots on here right? I'm sure you weren't on here with a sword and your back to the wall when PSN went down, defending Sony’s honor were you. I’m sure you went right along with them when they remove features too huh? What was the Korn song again? Oh yea HYPOCRITES.

Why is it the biggest fanboys on either side are always the first ones to call out the fanboys on the other. I guess it's like the same thing as the "loudest guy is usually the biggest pu$$y" thing.

insomnium22331d ago

Yeah I'm the biggest p***y here. You can always you know check my comment history if you feel the need to do so.

I cannot understand what's the relation between MS being a backstabber and PSN going down. PSN going down was a no-brainer since Sony literally destroyed geohot in that court case.

JokesOnYou2332d ago

yeah whatever, yet despite your hate COD BO is the most played game on either console, lol oh wait I forgot millions of gamers are wrong, fact is COD BO sucks, its no fun. Even the most enlightened therapist cant explain why they keep toturing themselves hour after hour only to endure such boredom, whats even more insane is they never learn and just keep coming back by the millions for more pain & suffering. Some speculate COD gameplay must induce psychosis and denial, especially when ALL of n4g knows that anything exclusive is automatically better. Careful though, other devs are catching on, look to be adding many COD-like features, call them a different name, talk about how their so innovative, and hope you like the off brand perscription.

Hey ps3 gamers, maybe yall can just kinda spread the word to be in an agreement to not buy COD this time. Just think, what if no ps3 gamer got the next COD, lol the devs would be like WTF?! and yall would be like "yea..wtf!, screw you guys enough is enough"

maybe yall would even get some freebies for it too,lol but thats not the goal...

I'd say if you did organize it the majority would not buy it, most people have internet and word would spread fast.

but hey, like I was thinking, ya know, COD is a xbox360 game obviously, just let them have it as an exclusive, f it...

I like your avatar! GO YOTES! :P

I love these tourny things, but I can't get used to COD on the 360. Its the same button layout for the most part, but it just feels slightly off to me.

SheenuTheLegend2333d ago

No problem bcoz PS3 is Exclusive Console Partner of
Uncharted 3 The God of Games

Seventh_Blood_Reborn2333d ago

As if gamers needed another good reason to ignore CoD / MW on the PS3 ... lol
