The European Call of Duty GM, Michaël Sportouch explains that he is confident that Medal of Honor is not a specific threat to Black Ops and that the Call of Duty series has yet to peak… really?
Call of duty peaked right before Activision got a hold of Infinity ward.
maybe interms of pc gaming yes but interms of console gaming it peaked at cod4 which was the main reason i had xboxlive
As a BF fan I found MOH very disappointing. It didn't know whether it was COD or BF. I feel the BF3 beta is only to help shift copies due to what ,IMO, was a poor beta.
the beta was horrible imo, the campaign looks really great but the multiplayer doesn't.
those that are enlightened know do not like cod those that are blind says that cod has yet to peak
WRONG...So very wrong. COD hasn't even come close to "peaking yet". MW2 for all its "glitches" and "complaints" continues to dominate onlive play. Black OPs so far is looking like it is doing the right things to keep the gameplay feeling fresh and the player motivated to level up. Medal of Honor's online beta was a PR disaster for that game as even though it was a beta it felt much more like a demo to all that played it...and it didn't play well.
In terms of quality, yes, the CoD series has peaked. I'd say the peak was CoD4 as it was wildly popular and was a quality game. MW2 is a damn joke. In terms of popularity, no it may not have peaked quite yet, but all MW2's popularity proves to me is that people are stupid in large numbers. I think in 5 years when we look back, CoD4 will still stand out as a good game to everyone while MW2 has severely polarized shooter gamers.
"gliches and complaints dominate online play" "MW2 is a damn joke in terms of popularity" and im pretty sure mw2 is the most sold game on ps3 are u freaking serious? you guys are way to hard on MW2 omg its not that glichy they fixed half the gliches the killstreaks arnt bad if u just shoot the Harriers chopper gunners etc one time with the javilen they leave so why do u guys cry since it launched about it? they even gave u a damn game mode without killstreaks to shut u guys up so its the perks? commando isn't that bad if u slow down and dont rush as much thermal isn't that bad if u use cold blooded theres an answer to everything the game is really even i mean i dont see why everyone crys so much call of duty is one of the best game franchises ever period now everyone who talks shit about MW2 have a tampon your vagina is bleeding
Honestly you dont know what the word "peak" means....It means its highest point of sales and players, at which case COD is currently at. After 2 clones of MW1, and other titles now challenging them, its gonna start to fall now. Espcially since BO is nothing more than the 3rd clone and Activision decided its time to start milking wallets. So yes, COD is AT its peak, and will start to decline after BO unless they actually decide to renovate again like they did with MW with the next COD title.
its true. MOH cant touch COD, battle Field was ok (IMO), but MOH is just a copy of BC2 so why would that audience even want to buy it? It will have limited sales and will pay for using DICE, and trying to compete with COD. The only reason MW2 became such a big hit, is because the casual players/people started to buy it.
oooooh, you said it, not me:)
medal of honor is better than cod waw and mw2 but no were near as good as cod4 imo
how can a game be better/not as good as another when it hasn't even launched?
Black Ops will be COD's peaking point then it will all fall down.
so Black Ops is right now my cup of tea.And I know people love hating activision here (so do I, what can i say it just feels good)but medal of honor seems like crap
Black Ops looks nothing like WAW, it's just Mw2 with different maps and even more noob features. WAW and COD4 actually needed some skill to be good at.
the moment a dog jumped up at me and i died was the day i stoped playin world at war and went back to cod4
yea COD4 and WAW did need skill, but there hopefully will be an MLG playlist. MW2 just awards all the noobs. IW will fall due to this terrible game, MOH demo was complete crap. I dont even want to touch that piece of ....
@hennessey86 I did say "some skill" lol, I'm just saying that Treyarch obviously think more is better, so they're adding a load of features in that will make the noobs happy, they think that making the game easy for new players makes it balanced..
some skill? dude MP5 silenced was all i needed why the hell was there more then 1 class slot when thats the only gun anyone would use? that and gay no scopes with M40A1 and claymores EVERYWHERE! it requierd 98% no skill and the 2% of skill it did? staying alive MW2 is way harder then Cod4 even with killstreaks and perks IMHO im not hateing on COD4 im just saying there all pretty easy
Yeah man, I feel you there, I play MW2 and I got like 30-16 I play WaW and I go 30- 4 The reason being is that in MW2 anyone is as good as you, you can be the best player, and get killed by a painkiller, or a Final stand noob, it's really annoying, it really requires no skill at all.
Wooo COD haters, are they still going?
Ye I like WaW. I was pleasantly surprised with the weapons they put in the game, prior to the game I thought WW2 weapons were boring
Call of Duty peaked with MW. I never played WaW but it heard it was solid and MW2 was a mess. Black Ops could bring it back but I'm leaning more towards MoH at this point. At least I won't have to worry about that game getting exploited or being called a homo by 10 different tweens in the lobby.
@BeaArthur MW2 was terrible. At first I didnt realise how crap it was, but as time went I figured it out. When someone else told me shotguns were secondary I couldnt believe this. I just hope that Black Ops returns them back to primary, The retarded aim assist would turn on in MW2. WaW was a very solid game, glitches and bugs were fixed constantly. I stopped playing MW2 and returned to WaW, everything is so balanced
Generic shooter vs generic shooter In the blue corner: Brown and bloom! In the red corner: VietNAM! Ready? FIGHT
all shooters are generic now a days, its just some are really fun.
At least one is a vietnam game and not the same old modern military support the troops 9/11 bullcrap. No offense to the cause but the countless games based on it are annoying and overdone.
First person shooter. Hmm they are all rubbish, I mean you all you do is run around in first person shooting at things. :| Its kind of neiche really. Since COD4 FPS's have actually greatly improved especially online due to the RPG element. FPS's used to be play game shoot stuff end of. Now you can rank up, customise, collect, compare with your friends. If you can come up with any better ideas to selling millions of FPS games to the public I'm sure publishers will be eager to hear your answers.
I'll be having both
It peaked at Cod4!!! fing Idiot!
Says the guy who can't articulate his point and has to refer to weak insults. Looks like you peaked in elementary school.
I remember my friends disliking the BC2 beta back then and they ended up buying it and loving it. DICE like many other devs use betas to test the game and see how the players respond to it and to fix any glitches and whatnot and improve it to a much better digree as possible. Besides MoH's SP experience looks promising nad fresh not like many other FPS games that treat the SP as a poor man's breakfast and then give a cookie to co-op and thereafter make a king's feast for multiplayer. Activision should not underestimate their opponents even if Cod has a HUGE fanbase ( or rather a huge herd of sheep ) that would buy the game for the name alone. As long as Kotick loses some money because of MoH I'm happy.
please COD has been on the downfall... just look at the glitch bug ridden game the last one was... the SP camp was a frigging joke MP... oh fun... camp, shoot, move, camp, shoot, move.... yawn
No way ! I'm passing on black ops , it's MW2.5 with new maps and looks choppy online , face it guys COD as we know it is gone ........ Activision and that cock Bobby Kotic are ruining the franchise and turning it onto the next Guitar Hero with year after year iterations , I'm going with Reach and MOH , then next year Black Ops will be a thing of the past with KZ3 , RAGE, GR future soilder , Gears 3 , bulletstorm and Crysis 2 !!!!!! Bank on that....
CoD peaked at CoD4. Didn't really last long.
IMO call of duty black ops looks so much better than MW 2. In fact world at war and CoD 4 is better than mw 2. MW 2 was really a waste of time and felt like an exact copy and paste of CoD 4 except with more glitches.
all the hate being thrown at mw2 i mean i prefer cod4 myself but mw2 is still a great game and im still playing it today. It has its problems yes but no game is perfect, if you find a good lobby which most of the time i do you have alot of fun which is what gamings all about. Oh and if i see anyone glitching on my team i shoot them end of, glitchers are very low on opinion scale i mean who the hell finds it fun to sit inside a rock and shoot people its pathetic

As far as sales it peaked with Modern Warfare 2. It will never come to close to thos kind of sales again, and will start a massive downward spiral in sales.
It needs bigger battlefields war isnt just in one building all the time frontlines tried some different things but bullet lag killed it it felt more like you were part of a bigger battle gaining ground , it felt like tactical game of american football with guns some ww1 action on open maps with trench warfare would rock team with the most gained yards wins .
cod4 was the best and with all the features in black ops it wont be balanced thus it cannot beat cod4.I wont get the game "properly" until i find out if its even worth buying this time.
