Sledgehammer CEO: PS3 is NOT holding back Call of Duty

Sledgehammer Games' CEO Glen Schofield has clarified recent reports suggesting that the 'aging architecture' of current-generation consoles is holding back Call of Duty, saying that his comments were taken "completely out of context". (Call of Duty, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Glen Schofield, Industry, PS3, Sledgehammer Games)

Weird. It seems it's always 360 is holding back or current gen consoles are holding PC back. Regardless, Looking at BF3, Gears 3, UC3 and looking at MW3 I have to ask what the hell is this guy on. MW3 has the same graphics, voices, sounds from MW2. MW3 is literally just a copy and paste job.

so sad that people will buy MW2 volume 2 for 60$ and pay for the CoD elite fee :(

we GAMERS must go against lazy developers and greedy publishers before it's too late.

If gears 3 can be done on a 360 and skyrim can fit on one disc, then the 360 isnt holding back as much as people think.

Who would think the PS3 is holding anything back? What is going to happen when the next COD runs on an engine that will consume more than 7gigs of information? Like Castlevania, Mass Effect, Rage, Battlefield 3, are on 360. I think the issue is Activision and it's developers give too sh*ts about the PS3 version, which is sad since the PS3 version of Blops was almost the exact same as the 360 version in sales, and the PS3 COD crowd is the fastest growing crowd. You'd think they would treat everyone equally, but sadly they don't.


Ohhh.. Didn't hear those shenannigans.

Some media outlets reported that the PS3 was holding back Call of Duty a couple of weeks ago.

If anything 360 is holding games back. Lost planet 2 had tons of content cut on the PS3 version because of the 360 version not being able to fit on 1 dvd.

cod with the same engine, i think activision is betting a lot on elite to succeed.
FragMnTagM  +   952d ago
Maybe if they would have scrapped the retarded Elite service, I might have bought MW3. It could have been a good game again, but alas they wasted a lot of development time on how to rip more gamers off.

Pfft...360 holds ps3 back, look at games like uncharted killzone infamous god of war gran turismo lbp these are the best gameplay an graphical wise yet it's the ps3 holding back the 360 WHAT A LOAD OF BOLLOCKS!

Sledgehammer got backlashes from the gaming community and now they have to ask for our forgiveness with their tails between their legs.

They trying to pull a Gabe Newell.

He went from most hated to most liked.
radphil  +   952d ago
Except Gabe actually held up to what he wanted to change. :p

More like Call of Duty is holding back consoles with its last gen graphics and old quake engine.
Mrmagnumman357  +   952d ago
this. Really activision id tech 3, which is 12 years old! its the quake 3 engine. Why not use id tech 4- doom 3. It looks far better, and though it still wouldn't compete with killzone 3 and battlefield 3 on consoles, it would be a huge upgrade. Regardless i can't lie i will buy this game. Me and my brother dominated at mw2 and love this multiplayer, keep in mind im 16 and he is 25.

I know gamer-z, a friend was playing cod and i heard quad damage, i was like wtf.
wenaldy  +   952d ago
Wow what a bull..
Drakesfortune  +   952d ago
the only thing holding cod back is itself and its crappy developers not the ps3 or xbox 360!!

gears of war, halo, uncharted, killzone, infamous and battlefield look better the call of duty!! dont hear them complaining!
Mrmagnumman357  +   952d ago
if im not mistaken rockstar said that 360 was holding back GTA 4, and also ghostbusters could have twice as many things on screen if it was a ps3 exclusive, thq said ps3 has more potential too. But dont think im a ps3 fanboy, just stating what devs have said, anyways consoles are holding back pc big time, im looking at you pc port of blops

Sledgehammer sucks.
AnimeAvenger  +   952d ago
LOL, who da fuck said PS3 is holding Call of Duty back?

Not even PS2 would hold CoD back.
Haseo106  +   952d ago
But Xbox360 is! Admit it.......
Battlefield 3 has to have 2-Disc for the Xbox360 because of its incredible graphic and unbelievable number of contents.
Final Fantasy XIII: 3-Disc on the Xbox360..........

PS3 does not hold any game back, only Xbox360 does!
capcock  +   952d ago
BF3 doesn't have 2 discs on the 360 because of the graphics xD it's on 2 discs because xbox 360 uses DVD-9 which has a lack of storage for newer games.

don't worry though! you're not the only slightly retarded fanboy with one bubble.
