Kotaku: We showed you the ad for Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops that's plastered just north of Manhattan's Times Square. Let's balance that with a look at the rival Medal of Honor ad that almost has it in its sights.
BATTLE OF THE ADS: lol I can't wait to see how Black Ops turns out to be, so far i am having a blast with MOH.
I think Black Ops will turn out great.
I have full confidence in Treyarch. I loved WaW. WaW>>>>>>MW 2.
Indeed. Zombies alone will be awesome.
I was preparing myself for a let-down but so far I've really enjoyed MoH. I finished the campaign (which was really short.. felt like 5-6 hours max) but I enjoyed it. Personally I felt it was inferior or both MW1, MW2 and BFBC2 for campaign.. maybe it was just too short but it was also not as varied. I also thought the helicopter mission wasn't going to be on rails which it was, and that let me down. I've played about 2hrs of multiplayer and it's a lot different than the Beta which sucked. I'm having a blast actually and it feels more like BFBC2 than MW2. I was also pleasantly surprised that you could use tanks as I thought there were no vehicles. Overall I feel MoH deserves about an 85/100. I only wish I could play as the Ta1iban :(
They arent even close together in the video. For an average non gamer they wont even notice it.
Yeah I'm really satisfied with MoH so far. Just finished the singleplayer (was a respectable length, don't know why they said it was a short and terrible singleplayer, was actually pretty good), the multiplayer's actually fun to a guy who hates multiplayer and my first FPS was MoH Frontline so I'm loving that it was remade. And Black Ops is actually lookin good to a guy that hates activision. They're so far apart, everyone should just get both.
I have to say, advertisements basically have no affect on me.
gotta disagree, subway commercials make me hungry, but as far as games go, agreed
Ads affect me as it makes me interested in some games. I've only ever bought one game based only on the commercial and that was Ace Combat 4 for PS2. The commercial made it look so badass but when I got it I played with some friends and we just got bored. I recently bought Dead Rising 2 based on "ads" as far as previews on web sites and comments from people. There were some negatives but overall I thought it would be good. Nope boring as hell.
You probably keep a close eye on upcoming games, know how they might turn out, read reviews, etc. Advertisement is directed toward those who have a console but don't read gaming news nor know about these games, and say: "Hey, I saw this on TV! It looked cool, perhaps I should buy it."
that's the beauty of advertising. you don't even know that they're influencing your shopping decisions. everyone who is exposed to marketing ads is affected by them.
edit: wrong reply
Most gaming sites are nothing but advertisements for new games. You think it's just chance that sites like IGN called Black Ops AAA the other day in it's preview?. They're all working together to sell you games, and you say you're not affected by it, lol. They've got you by the balls and you don't even know it.
it cost 350k + a month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why does anybody care that there are 2 signs for 2 different games in Times Square? xD
MOH will not beat Black Ops in sales but thumbs up to EA for trying.
Ill take the game that will sell REAL map packs, a good single player and the original call of duty, not a knock off.
I Hope MoH will out sell CoD because I am sick of this franchise being released every year they need to do it every 2 or 3 years but I cant see this happening MoH has not got the name any more but I am looking forward to getting the game today.
Would love to go there once :d I prefer MoH because i loved BFBC2. CoD plays to easy..
