Will CoD Ghosts Even Bother With Nintendo?

It appears as though Mr. Rubin is indicating that the possible collaboration with Nintendo is completely up in the air, stating himself:

“…I don’t even know the answer to that. I swear to God, I don’t..”

Truth is most Games can't compete with Nintendos games, Even COD. plus Nintendo fans are smarter than buying literally the same game every year.Before you trolls start your"Mario milk" crap,Do some research,i'm not going to argue whats already been argued a million times with fanboys who simply aren't intelligent enough to understand.

PirateThom1989d ago

"I'm not going to argue" in this case must mean "I realise what I've just said but I'm going to pretend Nintendo don't rehash the same game over and over".

_QQ_1989d ago

Like i said "fanboys who simply aren't intelligent enough to understand."

PirateThom1989d ago

Don't make it sound like Nintendo fanboys are any different than any other fanboys, especially when you're arguing rehashes in a negative light.

I understand exactly what you're saying and it doesn't wash. Nintendo are no better than Activision in that sense.

_QQ_1989d ago

Nintendo Fanboys are bad,All fanboys are bad.... Mario Games are almost never the same,thats not me being a fanboy thats me being a rational gamer...

SolidStoner1989d ago (Edited 1989d ago )

I hate "fanboy" comments... Almost everywhere I go here I see some fanboy arguing....

not cool!!!

All fanboys are easy to spot without anyone telling!!! just dont point with fingers at each other, that just looks silly!!

2pacalypsenow1989d ago

Mario games have different stories , So do every COD game that has come out only the MP has been the same .. Your point?

Prime_281989d ago (Edited 1989d ago )

They don't. You clearly haven't played a Mario or Zelda game in the last 10 years. You're just basing your comment off hearsay from haters and fanboys.

LOL_WUT1989d ago

I guess Nintendo fans aren't too bright if they gladly accept all the Mario's and Zelda's when Nintendo could easily make a new IP. So, let's not pretend like only Activision does it. ;)

@PirateThom well said +1 ;)

Triforce0791988d ago

I hate the COD franchise, but friend the "new Luigi Bross U" says hi! to your comment.

_QQ_1989d ago

That IS DLC... i guess DLC for games, needs to be an entirely Different game for it to not be considerd milk then?Is that the logic i am reading?

lucidity1989d ago

This decision was clearly made on the basis of poor sales numbers for Black Ops 2. This can be attributed in large part to the fact there's hardly any new players jumping into CoD; it's the same crowd it always has been. So people are sticking to their existing hardware and friend list instead of taking a chance on a new platform. It has nothing to do with the quality of Nintendo first party titles, which don't cater to CoD's audience, nor with the "intelligence" of the average Nintendo fan (though you can make an argument for the series not fitting their tastes).

Popoffboy1877181989d ago

I feel sorry 4 u lol !!! Get it ( u )

t3gamenews1988d ago

i agree with us nintendo fans being to smart to buy same game every year, especially if there giving us the messed up unsupported port.
but im a nintendo fan & i enjoy the cod games, just wish we would get dlc, we all feel that way there's actually a huge-er amount community that play games like cod on nintendo consoles. some just wait for devs to make those type games on there. instead of buying games they know devs wont support.

Prime example of a wiitard

N4g_null1988d ago

Its not a matter of being smarter. It is about game play. The prefffered shooter of a Nintendo fan is quake or doom franchise. Golden eye on the 64 was a direct copy control wise minus the tank looking part.

It was hilarious how pro quake players screamed they where getting a Wii back in the day lol.if cod took the sight aiming off the game it would be much better.

The cover based game play gets stale. I understand the reason why it was created yet we have to input methods that could allow mouse simulation on a console. Then add that to fast frame rates and you have a truly skill based game.what is really fun is cod still uses the quake engine but many have not seen it unscooped at its best with rocket jumping and rails.

The ps4 has a touch pad and the wiiu has a touch pad. Then the wiiu has the wiimote plus a nun setup. Sony should copy that, so the fps can come back home to the frantic skill we are use to using.

The run system should be looked at, allow tripping as prestige is made.
Some thing that speeds the game up to allow motion or touch pad aiming.scoping and auto aim needs to go.

I'm noticing that the reason why players are playing because it let's you cheat with in the rules of the game. Its the type of cheating that created elitism also. It only separate the winners from the losers more.

I'm really thinking cod will become a pay to win game eventually. What is sad is it has a lot of maps in single player that could work in multiplayer.

We also have PC class consoles now so level editing should be supported and let up make our own service... mine craft allows this wtf!

Fish AI in mario 64

and plenty of dog games on DS 3DS


Prime_281989d ago (Edited 1989d ago )

Mario 64 did it in 1996.

Relientk771989d ago

Black Ops II sold 23.91 million copies, and only 0.19 million were on Wii U

doing the math that's only 0.79% of the copies sold were for Wii U, not even a whole percent

Commandar_Shepard1989d ago

Well the game did come out around 5 days later on Wii U, with no graphical upgrades. Plus many people didn't even know that the Wii U was a next gen console or they just thought it was too "kiddy".

PopRocks3591989d ago

That and VGChartz are not exactly the most reliable source of numbers. I'd be more interested to see what the NPD would say about the numbers.

Triforce0791988d ago (Edited 1988d ago )

BO2 is graphically quite alot better than the current gen ps3/360 ect here look.

Notice more detail in textures and colour in wiiu version,other version

Prime_281989d ago (Edited 1989d ago )

You're comparing 2 systems that have already been on the market for 7 years with a large install base with another system that just launched. Off the sales of the system that just launched will be far lower in sales due to low install base.

@2pacalypsenow What does that have to do with this topic?

2pacalypsenow1989d ago

The vita Outsold The wii U last week ......

2pacalypsenow1988d ago

That the wii U has no chance... and Ps4 and Xb1 are not even out.

TURKEYonWH3AT1989d ago

But it was a launch title and Nintendo enthusiasts all went for the first party titles on launch

N4g_null1988d ago

So its not possible for wiiu owners to own a ps3 or Xbox. I really think publishers believe that is not possible. Most Wii owners are also PC players.

The reason to get it on the wiiu was pointer controls. That is not a popular control method. It is more accurate and faster just ask the PS move gamers. Yet bops was gimped in the beginning for motion its all fixed. If they go back to a gamepad center game design the risk being forgotten when some one apes there formula.

Shnazzyone1988d ago (Edited 1988d ago )

vgcharts only does the first 10 weeks of a game for numbers. People seem to still be playing it online. So long term people must still be buying it. It likely will come out for no other reason than it is the next gen console with the biggest install base when ghosts comes out. Just it likely wont get DLC since microsoft is playing paid exclusivity again. Note. Noone has said Ghosts is not coming to wii U. They always say they have nothing to say about it. Which with numerous leaks saying it is coming. Activision is almost assuredly going to do it.

But who cares anyway.

Who would want COD Ghosts when you got alternatives to a yearly generic military fps rehash such as, Wonderful 101, bayonetta 2, pikmen 3, A New donkey kong country from retro, Windwaker in HD, and of course the eventuality of Mario Kart 8, Smash brothers, and X on wiiU. All unique, exclusive titles you wont find anywhere else. It's the advantage wii U has going. It just has the most unique flavor of games out of the three.

Khordchange1989d ago

they announced it already, got in trouble because they announced it too early, now they are saying they have no idea. its gonna be on wii u

Shnazzyone1988d ago (Edited 1988d ago )

Remember how Nintendo said there were more titles to announce that they didn't get to at E3? Activision is likely keeping their mouths shut because nintendo plans to reveal it in a upcoming nintendo direct. Activision is likely agreeing because they know Wii U will have the biggest install base when they drop it and Nintendo direct is the perfect way to make Wii U owners aware of it coming.

ShaunCameron1989d ago

COD? Nintendo don't need no stinking COD!

fattyuk1989d ago (Edited 1989d ago )

The wii u sure as shit needs something!

ShaunCameron1989d ago

But COD certainly isn't it!

fattyuk1989d ago

neither did I.

as even cod would fail on the wii u!
