Activision PR indicates that despite the spotlight being on Modern Warfare 3 this year, Call of Duty Elite will give Black Ops beta focus and long-term support, while Treyarch designer disputes DLC and Elite are “over-milking” franchise.
over milking? Milking is milking...... Seeing as I don't xbl anymore guess idc
"CoD" And "Not Over Milking" Dont Go In The Same Sentence
Bullshit actimilksion, COD SUCKS stop releasing the same generic shit every year ya greedy bastards, hows about a new IP FOR A CHANGE////?"?? bungie's doing it, so is insomniac, NOW that I respect.
Activision is all about the $$. As long as people buy the games they'll exploit it until they run dry. You cannot really blame them for taking opportunity to collect as much cash they can collect. As far as the CoD series is concerned, meh. Most shooters this generation bore me.
from a buisness stand point yes, BUT to alienate future gamers is bullshit dude. What about when my son gets older and he wants to play COD???? am I as a parent going to have to pay double or triple or quadrouple the subscription??? hell no, I rather use it on stuff that will benefit my young one.
Overmilking? They deny overmilking but that doesn't mean they deny milking. So fear not, they are only doing the necessary amount of milking.
This is like showing a murderer a video of himself killing a person and then the murderer saying "I didn't do that."
Actually it's more like, showing the murder a video of himself killing 10 people and the murder saying "I only killed 8 people."
Actually it's more like a company overcharging for a product....
I REALLY hate Black Ops. By far the worst COD ever.
I think MW2 is the worst COD ever. At least BO has the zombie mode which is the only thing that makes me play BO.
COD4 was a great game.... unfortunately it's been all downhill since.... although I agree that the Zombie modes are fun.... it's surprising though that Activison have not followed up on that success by expanding upon it and making a separate game based upon the Nazi Zombies.... I know I'd buy it and I don't play COD anymore!
Agree with MW2 being the lowest COD. COD4 was the best..I would also buy a Nazi Zombie game. I dont touch the online anymore. Though I did enjoy the online for BO..just to much of the same.
. Looking forward to what Activison is bringing this holiday November. Thank you Activision for caring... http://youtu.be/xobNcaIaQpk Of course its a big part of Black ops...the above video was made with Black ops game play...0_o
it sounded to me Treyarch doesnt like it and is stuck being cordial not to bite the hand that feeds....
I didn't get that at all. I got the feeling that they want to be looked at as creating more content for their fans and specifically pointing out that they don't do the marketing/selling and whatnot.
hmmm, i got that vibe Mr. JeffGUNZ. i guess we will never know mate. i only bought one map pack for BO (my first CoD game) and i regret doing it and havent bought another.
the thing is, without COD, where would Activision get money? they closed a lot of studios, and have (edit)3** or 4 studios on COD alone. they didnt plan things out well. if and when COD dies out, they dont really have other franchises to lean on. unless Bungie's new game sells super well, which it definitely might, they are going to be in a tough spot. edit:i forgot they partnered up with Blizzard, so they kinda do have franchises to lean on, but not for the consoles, so i guess my point stands.
I'm confused, so you're going to stop releasing the exact same game every year?
It sounds like a new engine is in the works for treyarchs next release. I hope to god their is and it gives the franchise a new lift.
Unlikely. The series is too successful for them to really do anything drastic to it.
I plan on getting MW3, but mainly because I want to finish the story. I will play the MP portion a lot I am sure, but not nearly as I did in the past thanks to Gears 3 coming out. If they don't make the next installment with a new engine, I think people are going to grow tired of it quickly.
New engine please, the only thing that will force activision to build a new engine is the arrival of the next generation. We are talking about publisher that refuses to have a beta for their games to improve the product before it launches, every other relevant fps dev has a beta, just not cod devs. Anything related to insuring quality or making a better experience is the least of activision's interests. Which begs the question why would bungie want their name mentioned in the same sentence as activision, at activision is hands off on bungie's game.
That's the biggest bullshit headline I've ever read. Right up there with "Boy Eats Angel Food Cake and Flies"
Activision not milking?
CoD 4 is the best by far... All Ghillied Up
