360 Magazine: Call Of Duty Black Ops 2, the XBox 720, the end of the console as we know it and crucial future gaming developments.
You mean 'Activision Presents: Man With Gun 2012, Starring Denzel Washington'. Also, the new Xbox will be called the Ybox. You heard it here first.
More like Activision presents: one long cut-scene in which 'press X for controversial torture' comes up intermittently.
I expect Reservoir Dogs next time.
This is about Mass Effect 3. I always liked the series for its technical side and the dialogue trees. I never really liked the setting, the story, or the characters. Other than the snow level in Mass Effect 1 and Wrex there's no memorable things really. Mass Effect 3 is going to be out on maxed out consoles so no technical or graphical leap there. Count me out on this game. This being said Mass Effect 1 is a top 10 game this generation.
if that were true the xbox 360 would be Y box and the next generation xbox would be Z box.
But what would the one after that be called?
They probably think the world will end after that. I mean, Lynx have made a 'end of the world'edition deodorant. When we are here 2013 all and well, i'll be playing some GTA V.
They should go straight for inox or soon there will only b one console that's more powerful than any PC and it will b made by apple. It will incorporate everything apple and they will rule the world. So its better to simply release the Ibox and prevent future world domination. As far as cod and black ops r concerned, it will sell 10 million copies on day 1, 8 million paid for by r government as unemployment will b 14%. There wont b a new console in 2012 because activision says so. They aren't done yet and until they r forced to use some ingenuity, expect the status quo. Why invest more $ right now if ppl will fork over their last penny to u for a rehash. So, as cod goes, so goes consoles and PC's as they will b held back. Star wars will release and sell many copies just like battlefield did, but everyone will return to wow because activision obviously has the best games and the most talented warlocks casting spells on their products. Ppl wont know why but swtor just wont feel right. Everyone will say that its a better game and its fresh and many hardcore players will b converted but the masses will nitpick things like hotkeys and menu animations to declare wow as the enduring king of mmorpgs...and then the next expansion will release and swtor will go free to play. On November 3rd we will wake to see if we get 4 more years of misery or a Republican (what a choice...no hope or maybe some actual hope with alot of immediate suffering). But to r surprise, we will c that Bobby kotick is president and EA is under federal investigation. And then 7 days later...the cod cycle begins again.
It starts over... Abox.... A-box
funny article all i read was the first part where it says 1.January 2012 Industry analyst Michael Pachter says that another Call Of Duty game will be announced this year and that it will sell “lots of copies”. He also states with unsual specificity that an asteroid 100Km wide at its thickest point will veer from its predicted trajectory and on 12 December at 0043:29, it will smash into the South Pacific Ocean near Easter Island and cause the extinction of nearly all species on Earth, including 98% of the human population. i was like what?
Personally I like Pachter's CoD predictions, its the only f*cking thing he seems to get right. :D
Um. I'm like "Doh!" Of course they'll make a new call of duty game next year. It's already codenamed Iron Wolf.
Man imagine the sales... New xbox bundled with Black ops 2.
We already got Black ops 2, it's MW3.. oh wait no, sorry. To be honest though, my pet parrot Baba could have predicted that.
Doesn't Black Ops take place during Vietnam? That isn't exactly what I would call modern warefare since it's 40 years old.
@ ZippyZapper lol, I think you are taking my comment to seriously.
I don't believe the next Call of Duty game will be called "Black Ops 2." Treyarch has a habit of changing names with their games. World At War and Black Ops are different names. Iron Wolf may be a code name, but I believe the next game in the series will be different.
World at War didn't sell like black ops did. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to capitalize on the "Black ops" name.
Extraordinary Rendition DLC, innit.
I actually laughed quit a few times... very amusing.
That's right, this IS the ninth CoD isn't it... I wonder how long they can keep this up.
Till people start using their brains....
Well, we'll be seeing a lot more COD then....
Actually Black Ops had more innovation than Mw3, altough i like Mw series gameplay, maps and guns better i have to admit when it comes to innnovation Treyarch is winning the fight over IW. The emblems customization, the weapons customization and alot more were awesome additions to Cod that IW didnt put in Mw3... I wonder why
Black Ops' campaign really wasn't that good. The original Modern Warfare is still the best, by far.
MW3's campaign kills the original MW. Have you played it? Probably not. smh.
@petitpipi No it doesn't MW3 story is a joke cod4 story is still by far the best MW story.
MW3's campaign doesn't kill anything, unless you bought the game for SP, then you probably killed yourself.
@ Isujester I bought the game for SP, MP & Spec Ops. Why else would I buy the game? What a stupid comment on your part. @ Vag MW3's story is a joke? And you call yourself a gamer? lmao! PLEASE send me over your GT or PSN id. I need to see the games you've played.
MW is the best MW game, but CoD 2 is the best CoD.
I agree 100%. Though arn't you sick of buying a game with no new modes in at all (multiplayer wise) BLOPS had no new game modes in competitive multiplayer and mw3 only had 3 new ones!! But I agree with the innovation side and I enjoy the maps more in IW games but I do hate the maps in MW3! I do... i try and enjoy them but I can't. I liked the crisp, clean look of cod 4 and mw2 maps to the look and feel of mw3. I also loved every map in cod 5! But hated every map in BLOPS!
I am not really defending Blops of poo, I hate the game, but I am sure it had 1 or 2 new game modes. You had the one were you start with a single weapon and every time you kill someone it would randomly change to something else.. or something like that. I took blops back to the shop after about 4 weeks or so, so thats why I can hardly remember it but I know it had one or two new modes.
cod4:MW has been,currently is, and will probably always be my favorite cod game even to this day i go on and play it every now and then.
Modern Warfare 4: Burgertown Genocide
Y U NO FUNNY?
I thought not funny was the theme here, based on the pre-pubescent article.
kudos to you frostypants. was trying to find the words to describe this article, and you summed it up perfectly.
Microsoft already denounced any plans for the NextBox launching in 2012. Stop tossing around false hype.
thats because they don't want to keep you from purchasing the 360, it's business.
Point out the part of the article where it says the next Xbox is being launched in 2012? ...oh wait. You'd need to read it to do that, wouldn't you?
I was speaking on the title, written in such a way to imply a new Xbox in 2012. If sites are going to imply BS in order to get hits, why shouldn't I comment on that aspect? You wrote and submitted this crap, don't act like you don't know it's aim.
The submission title was clearly intended to mislead. The article itself is supposed to be satirical, but the whole thing just comes off as click-wh*ring.
Maybe the implied BS is actually BS? You wouldn't know, would you, because it's implied. In which case, try reading the very unambiguous article for clarification. Did you read the bit where I talked about adults stoking the N4G flames, mr 3-bubble?
I wouldn't know much about N4G. My sites don't rely on it for cheap hits.
I see: "Christina Ricci Makes The Playstation Move Sexy". Very highbrow, those 1070 degrees didn't appeal to the lowest common denominator at all.
Honestly people, chill out! Next gen Xbox will not be coming out in 2012! Halo 4 is coming out next fall, and it has already been announced for the Xbox 360. The only possible way it will happen is if they were to make Halo 4 multiplatform between their new system and the 360.
Do you have some sort of source or proof by any chance? I would just like to read it myself, as it seems like it would be big news if they officially said that and I hadnt heard it at all.
Call of Duty Copy Paste
"black ops 2: this is not a copy paste...really" -- coming 2012
Black Ops 2???????? LAWLLLLLLLLLLL
1 November 2012 Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 is announced. Activision says that it will be released on 2 November 2012 and it instantly gets 50 million pre-orders. Really? I dont think this will happen, but it was funny lol
as a cod fan myself if treyarch is making black ops 2 i highly doubt ill buy it cause of the disappointment with black ops and world at war with activision gives sledgehammer a chance to make a cod game i might consider it
Well that was a bit of a waste, wasn't even all that humorus. I was actually hoping they would be throwing out some legit predictions. I always find those article fun but this just felt like bad gaming humor. I guess different strokes for different folks.
From article: "It will be launched with several new Kinect games, including Kinect: Kinect, where you control a Kinect player playing a game on Kinect." EPIC
I had to read that one twice lol, but yea it was funny
The new Black Ops needs to be more "Grimey" I could care less for all the customization. Lets blow some heads and some limbs off. World at War really stood out the most to me. Thats why I loved it so much. Plus ZOMBIES. Im all for Black Ops 2 but if its a copy and paste, Won't be purchasing just like MW3. Real Fans dont support Bullshit.
He apparently expects Activision to use their brains. You bought MW3 day one didn't you? Sheep.
NOt sure if your talking to me. But ill answer your question. *You bought MW3 day one didn't you?* No. Not day two, 30, 365, or 730. Hope that makes you sleep better at night.
One thing we can be sure of is another COD in 2012. What's new? Both with that franchise and this article?
Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Who am I kidding, that's what todays gaming journalism is all about.
I don't understand all the hate for black ops. I thought It was the best cod since 4. I know a lot of people sucked at it because your kill streak kills didnt count towards the next killstreak and there were no deathstreaks. the maps I thought were all awesome and not just hallways and corridors like in IW cod games. Looking forward to black ops 2.
Dungeon Keeper 2, what a game! That's getting downloaded over christmas :)
I loved that franchise, I was pissed when they cancelled part 3. Deeper dungeons expansion is my favorite but all 3 are good.
Not long ago there was an article stating Sony will launch same yeAr as xbox. Well, there hasn't been any news about Sonys system rumor in 2012. I would say false rumor.
Nice to see a predictions list with a title like it's stating fact...
This is what happens when the PS3 tops the xbox 360 overall sales it's fanbase goes ape sh!t.
Are fanboys like you still fighting for second place? Wow. If sales are soooo important, I guess Wii wins. Long live the Wii!
