Standards have not been kept after CoD4 release at all. I'm tired of paying $60 every year for DLC on disc with renamed perks, because that's what it pretty much looks like. On top of that...this so called proprietary (Quake) engine is so old if they fuck something up you can't even patch it/remove it (example MW2). I'm sorry been big fan since first cod but this is just getting annoying and this fall me "going to want" some Battlefield 3 !

What article? It is three freaking quotes and a title.

“MW2 broke sales records, Black Ops broke those records, and we’re certainly hoping to sell a heck of a lot,” said Scholfield.

“If you think about it, people watch sitcoms and other shows for ten years,” he pointed out to MCV. “So if we continue to deliver a great story, we innovate, we add new stuff to the game all the time, quality is never sacrificed, people are always going to want it.”

Fooxy comment: "Standards have not been kept after CoD4 release at all. I'm tired of paying $60 every year...."

It would seem his comment was directly related to the article's statement.

You mad bro?

Ontopic: seriously though it wouldn"t surprise me if Call of Duty never dies. or rather not die for a long time. The main group of people that play it are the mainstream crowd that never really got into video games. They just want something where they can sit down and play a few games and kill some people.

In the end i hope I"m wrong because alot the multiplayer stuff this generation has ruined alot of single player games.

Just slap a COD name in it and it will sell.
That's how normal consumer are behaving.

I don't understand. If you are tired of doing it, then why do you do it? I mean, not buying something is the easiest thing in the world to do. You don't even have to get out of bed to not buy something.

To activision:

Sad, Sad fact.

Just like people are always going to like lady gaga for some reason....

Very bad comparison Imo, people like Lady GaGa because of her music, not because she dresses like an idiot and nipple slips on stage.

It's just like any other singer in my opinion, for instance George Michael and Elton John might be gay, but people like their music and they sell an hell of a lot, Call of Duty isn't like Music, it's a game re-hashed.. over and over and over and over again and why people buy it, is beyond me.

Mr Tretton2278d ago

lol, you think image has nothing to do with record sales in the music industry? People like Lady PooPoo because she's being shoved into their stupid faces by money power. Also, 'artists' rehash their sh!t over and over too, just like COD.

Lots of COD players play COD because that is what big money is shoving in their face, and it just creates a social snowball effect.

Dude, lady gaga has no musical talent. She dosen't even write it.

IT is just a copy of everything else on the radio. I am going to go ahead and tell you most of the artist that are well known an on the radio do the same thing.

There is little to no musical talent in the pop radio stations that is why I tend to stay away from them.

It really blows my mind how the youth and anyone else for that matter are so loving of these artist when they are nothing more than different chords with lyrics to brain wash the public.

It is sad. And I compare that completely to COD because it takes the same kind of person and mentality to come back to a game like that every year giving it so much praise when it is just the same thing over and over again.

Did he just say people will always want COD even if it sucks?
