ThisGenGaming says "It’s only been 24 hours since the announcement of Call Of Duty: Black Ops being backwards compatible, and it’s already in crazy demand in UK stores."
Yeah I find this shocking. The Wii U is backward compatible with Wii software and hardware, and it hasn't received the same attention, though I digress. Microsoft definitely made the X1 more valuable by adding BC.
Maybe the Wii library sucks and all the cool AAA games that people actually wants are on X360 and PS3; thus, that is why no one cares about Wii games?
I tell you one thing though, I hope the NX is bc with the WiiU because there are a few games that only appeared on Wii U that I would love to play, just not enough to buy the system. But if NX comes out strong with the support of 3rd party games, 1st party games and BC then I'm all in.
@Rookie_Monster What are you on about? Barbie Horse Adventures Riding Camp was a classic! Seriously though, when I got my Wii U, only backwards compatible game I cared about was Last Story.
Who....????? Is asking about Wii/WiiU???
Because it was included from day one on Wii u to not leave out people who previously owned older console, not added on as an after thought 2 years later once most had moved on sold their games (hence why people are rebuying COD) sure it's great for Microsoft to have it but it's more to do with the fact they are not pumping out new games fast enough not top quality ones. Sure it's great to be able to put your old games in your new consoles but if that's all that's going on for Xbox one currently I would just get my 360 out of its box and play it on there.
@gangsta: Yeah, I think 3rd party support is one of the biggest keys to NX's success.
I keep asking my self..."why"???
That's the funniest shit ever. @gangsta_red. Anyone with a ps3 or 360 could go back and play it at any time without needing BC. He's right you guys are happy with playing old games. Go ahead. I don't really care. BC has never been a big issue for me. My issue is BLOPS is shit anyway.
Lol so why are you here?
Why do you guys tend to troll ps4 articles? It's my opinion on the game not BC which I couldnt care less about. It's okay that you guys are happy to just play old games congratulations but it's less hassle to play it on your old console Fwiw I can play it BC on my xbox one as well. My point is its a shit game. Last BC game I played was fallout 3 and it reminded me why we push for new generations of game consoles.
Tend to troll ps4 articles? Can you give me an example? Even then it make your trolling okay? Lol you just admitted to being a troll. How is it less of a hassle? Pulling up and creating space for the 360 to play is less of a hassle than to play it on XO like you would any other game? (With the benefits that come with XO might i add)
The other benefits of the console are it's new exclusives. And I was just posing a pointless question to you as you posed to me. I am here in no way trolling BC it is a good feature even though I don't rate it. But I think BLOPS is a horrible game. Hence why I'm here. With my opinion on the game. Which everyone else seems to suggest I'm allowed to have.
@lastking He's here because he has some form of anger and extreme delusion that people are trolling PS4 articles even though he's here in an X1 article puking nonsense. Ignore the little boy, he has to get these things off of his chest to feel good but soon enough his internet privileges will be stripped by his nana. @Gol3m "Anyone with a ps3 or 360 could go back and play it at any time without needing BC." And now anyone with an Xbox One can go and play it too smart guy...anything else you want to cry about?
Actually @gangsta_red as I'm an XONE owner I too can play this game using the BC. My point is simply it's not that great a game and once people get on it they'll re realise that fact. Nice try though. And yes you and a couple others have been trolling ps4 articles for a long time now. Especially UC4 articles. Well done though. 'My internet privileges will be stripped by my nana'? Now you're being the child of the conversation, trying to act like a keyboard warrior but you'd be a little pussy at home
It's not that great of a game and that's a fact you say? Well now, since you put it like that then obviously it's true. Hey everyone, close up shop! Gol3m here says that CoD BoP is not a good game and everyone will soon realize this, he put FACT at the end so it's official. "Nice try though." Nice try at what? For some reason you're directing your comment specifically at me as if I said CoD was the best game ever. "And yes you and a couple others have been trolling ps4 articles for a long time now. Especially UC4 articles." This right here is basically your point that you're trying drive home since you keep mentioning this in every comment. We get it, you're mad at something I said in a UC4 article. Just out of curiosity though, exactly how am I "trolling" these articles, your types use this term so loosely that it could mean any number of things. "trying to act like a keyboard warrior but you'd be a little p*** at home" Ooooh, those nerves struck hard in the paint didn't it my little daffodil? I love it *muah*
@gangsta_red. No nerves struck at all mate. You'd have to be better than that to get me worked up. Nice try though pussy
@Castillo Wow. This is crazy and now we got other publishers wanting to add their games to EA Access.Imagine what happens when RDR, Skate 3, Blops2 or even Skyrim come to BC http://n4g.com/news/1906941...
Some will become bitter as they look for excuses to deem it worthless so on. Me i look forward to it and will embrace it along w/ all other features offered me.
Can only imagine how games like Red Dead, Skyrim, and MW2 would do once they are BC. It's insane that overnight a 6 year old game received a spike of 70k players on top of the pre-existing user base. Shows how much star power old CoD still has and that BC is beneficial to the consumers who still want to play older games. Nothing wrong with that.
70k people brilliant what about the other 18-19 million.
You trying hard as possible huh roswee? Lol just let it be man, it's a great feature ppl have been enjoying but thx for the salt. needed some, pretzel was kinda dry 😂
A 6 year old game that is a part of a yearly franchise still pushing about 100k concurrent players on console is quite a feat no matter how you spin it. I guess the other 18-19 million are playing "the new games" that everyone says backward compatability voids somehow.
Probably the last Call Of Duty game I actually enjoyed.
Same but all good things come to an end. This whole thing gangsta says better than having to rebuy or rent your old games? I don't need to as there's more than enough new games on my platforms of choice it's great to have the option but where's all the new gen games. As for NX being backwards compatable not sounding likely Wii U is gonna it's own unique thing if you wanna play those games grab a Wii U and also be able to play all the old Wii Games. Nintendo have said themselves that NX is a Seperate new console, I think they'll keep Wii U running along with VC for people who are still enjoying them and then NX will be its own beast sure it'll have a VC of sorts and hopefully include cross buy but yeah think Wii U games are staying exclusive to Wii U apart from Zelda of course the rest probably not. Nintendo have been good with BC since Wii let us play GameCube and now Wii U letting us play Wii and especially handhelds, but reckon NX may be its own beast and first in a while from Nintendo to drop BC.
Good games last forever. If this was truely the last cod you enjoyed you should be praising bc rather than downplay. Ofc there's new good games but if you're craving cod bo1 what options do you have? Uc4? Lol makes no sense. Ppl get that craving on XO, they can now play it.
woo dude i'm no doctor but i will tell you that too much salt is not good for the body. i have over 400+ games on pc new and old and i enjoy playing them. most of you fangirls need to calm yourself the world does not revolve around your company of choice
"I don't need to as there's more than enough new games" Clearly, there isn't. As we're nearing more remasters for the Xbone and PS4 then we are for new games.
Just wait until Black Ops 2 is made backwards compatible.
or Red Dead Redemption, Skyrim and Skate 3. I'm glad MS added this feature to the console.
Look a jealous sony fangirl down voted me. Boo hoo
Nearly 100,000 players online... It's crazy to see how fast the servers have repopulated...
You guys are funny diss my console and then it's oooh so salty... Reality.
Bu bu bu bu but nobody wants to play old games, and backwards compatibility is something nobody's interested in....at least that's what the interwebs and places like N4G and Neogaf said. Yet, over 100k people on the game tonight!
Hahaha 100k people big deal. Bet it dwindles quick when they realise how shit the game is
Yeah because no one really knows what this new game is like!.... Give it up buddy black ops is back....snarf...snarf
You are really jumping the gun, BC is a gimmick, thats it, it is a nice to have. There are literally hand full of games that will get the attention that COD is getting. Of all the games released on BC, other that COD, how many have really made an impact? None
Crap is that you? damn boy u stink.. Lol
So known Xbox extremist groups are allowed on N4G? Even Phil Spencer thinks these guys are pathetic.
lol! I guess its good news for xbox fans. They really need some lol!
"Shhh, ok ladies and gentlemen, up to our left using a Sony PS4 is an envious fanboy. Please don't make any loud claims about great features as you may just scare and frighten the poor sod."
So it won't let me reply to your other comment but you say why would I take up space get a portable HDD? And another console costing me £300 so I can use it and take up more space again just to play the games I can always play on my 360 if I actually wanted to. Played them for 9 years finished what I wanted to I may go back to some I had over 100 digital titles at least hence why I kept my console not to mention I enjoyed the 360 and I have the Star Wars edition I'm a Star Wars fan so I'm hardly gonn sell it on for peanuts just to replace with a newer more expensive console to play the same games.. That's just stupid hence why I kept my old console and my £300... £429+ had I bought it on day one and got stuck with Kinect also... Again got it with Star Wars bundle don't want it with Xbox one if and when I do get one. If it's all just going merged with PC tho not interested I don't PC game and have no intention to console gamer all the way. Oh and as for the Live features? For £40 year no thanks. Paid it for 9 years not interested at the moment.
You have to reply up the chain to the previous poster. In that case to yourself. On topic, I was actually responding to Bruce in that instant. You have a very valid claim to holding on to a 360 with the extensive library. I would have kept it as well. But I would never have gotten rid of it in the first place though, right? Now imagine all 100 titles are BC. Then there is more money in your pocket an due to selling your old console. Or give it to a family member. Or trade up to the new console. It's all around a great feature to support.
Don't worry E3 is just around the corner :)
The only game that i still play that i bought for my 7th gen console is the 'Classic DOOM Colllection' Easy for me to switch from 8th gen to 7th gen with one HDMI plug switch . I guess a lot of people traded in their copy of Black Ops . Used video game stores are happy about this.
I feel bad for the sony fans. Don't worry, you still have infinity warfare lol.
I feel bad for you Xbox fans. You need a six year old game for bragging rights, not new fresh games. Don't worry you still got gears 4........four months away
Boom... You sound like a stupid fangrl no one believes your lame comeback gtfo lil kid with that bs lol Ppl so happy that COD population is in the thousands, its always in the tens of thousands whether its on playstation, xbox, etc.... Go to any COD and youll see lol
Yep and they are all obsessed with Salt... Oooh salty.... Ooh camp more like. Sound like a bunch of sailors.
Killer Instinct, Quantum Break, replaying Alan Wake and Dead Space is keeping me very happy :)
Who cares about that most ps4 will have more than enough to play than having to resort to new COD. Just because Sony got the deal from Microsoft doesn't mean everyone's gonna start buying it. Doom 4, Uncharted 4, No Man's Sky and that's just either now or in next few weeks... Gears of war 4 after the summer?! Enjoy the wait.
Seeing how popular it is, Microsoft ought to bundle it with an xbox 1.
i don't know how to really feel about this. in 2013 everyone said get next gen consoles here because ps3 and xbox360 over stayed their welcome. now in 2016 people want to go back and play last gen FPS military shooters gamer logic i for one am glad sony didn't go for BC. offer new games and anyone wants to play ps3 games can buy a ps3 BC is a feature that gets headlines because xbox one has it and ps4 doesn't. if both had it i don't believe we would ever hear about it. whenever one console has a feature the other doesn't than that feature becomes must have and the IT thing wiiu has BC yet not much talk about it i guess sony will take ps4 outselling the competition than caring about selling used games for gamestop
Let the fans of the game enjoy it. I'm happy for them. It's not even everyone. It's .5% of the X1 user base. Not so unreasonable to assume there are enough people who would love to play the game again given how popular it was. Probably is a higher percent with new digital purchases, other territories, and existing owners of the game, but still not like the entire fan base is clamoring for it, so no need to generalize it all.
oh god lol block these BS articles
black ops 1 was mediocre but one of the more casual call of dutys so i see why people love it..
No wonder I haven't used my xbox in over a month. Nothing new on it.
Quantum Break, Halo 5, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War Ultimate, Killer Instinct season 3, Forza 6
call of duty is great! how about assassin's creed 3 now please?
The worst in the series out of the proper numbered ones. It was ok but 2 was waaay better and 4 was pretty cool enjoyed syndicate but then I'm probably biased being as its set about 2 hours away from where I live. That and my great great grandads statue was in the Game... Next to Nelson in Trafalgur square.
Nothing to play on the Bone? so go back to old games huh,, and this is an achievement somehow. Well there it is =D
I bet that it´s like that all over the place though, because I couldn´t find any Call Of Duty: Black Ops for 360 in my local video game stores.
This all sounds exaggerated. I could find any old game and show that it's out of stock in most places. Edit: I just checked the PS3 version of Black Ops in EB Games, it's also sold out everywhere. This has nothing to do with BC.
Stop being an obvious troll. A store which shows their stock had 4000+ copies in stock before BC announcement, and sold out within 24 hours.
