RipTen: "It’s no secret that PS3 gamers are not satisfied with their version of Call of Duty: Black Ops. In fact, many of them are so upset that they’ve started a petition to be refunded for the game."
It's over 9000!!
Not surprising at all.
7,001 cuz i just signed one of those. :)
It's actually got close to 7,500 now.
I just got a $50 gift card for game stop and I think I am going to save it for LBP2 rather than waste it on black oops. I am glad I didn't get this game at release, the next cod will have to be a revolution in the series to get my money.
Well, I'm done with my copy. *Signs* lol
i don't think you ppl should get a refund. why would you spend money on such a POS franchise in the first place? COD is the Twilight of gaming.
I signed it too. I still think the multiplayer is fun but I would gladly quit for my $80 back. What I'm most dissapointed in is the lame ass campaign. I don't think zombie co-op is nearly as fun as every said it was.
@TheLastGuardian I know, but for some people the multiplayer is just Unplayble. I have a good connection and i play ''Okay'' but what about my friends? When i'm trying to find a game with 3-6 ppl in my Party, only 2 make it. That's why most people say the multiplayer is not fun at all, and the Lag, the disconnections and last time i played black ops, my Ps3 froze 2 times in 1 day. Treyarch has 3 Options. #1 Give us the Upcoming Map Pack for free. #2 Give us out money back! (This is the one i want.) And #3 Fix the game and MAYBE i could forgive them. But even if i forgive them, i ain't spending another penny on an Activision game. :D
i signed the petition, but i dont expect a refund, nor all those 7000+ signers wont get one either. However if someone could prove this product was released with flaws. Im not sure if software could be recalled, like a car being recalled or something like that. Thats what they should be aiming at, cause that would then require a refund and would damage the company majorly. That in the end is what we want, the game sold millions and they reap the benefits for releasing crap, we already paid for the game, if we don't play it, why do they care, they got their money.
How about quit being bandwagon casual nerds and don't buy that garbage to begin with?
sign all you want. this is the orange box story all over again. that didnt get fixed and neither will this. activision will calim they working hard on the next C.O.D and have no time to fix this crap. P.S - the patch they released was just to make you think you matter to them. if u really did, the game would be fixed a long time ago. heck, criterion games made whole exapansion packs <free dlc> for burnout paradise in the same amount of time.
Lmao I stopped playing Cod after Cod4
First of all instead of moaning like kids for falling for the Activision bullshit again just tell yourself you will never buy another game from them again that will hurt them more than anything else you will be able to achieve. But I don't get what is wrong with you guys... If you buy a game and you don't like it because it was poorly put together just don't buy another game from the same publisher/developers. No one ever said that Multiplatforms are identical. We all knew that Activision always screw over PS3 gamers in Cod games. We have all played games that had exclusive content on just one console and games that were buggy as shit. Lastly if the game was so horrible why do you still have the copy on you? Have you played it threw and now that your finished you just want your money back? You should have traded it straight in at a local store the week it came out and you would have gotten back at list 85% of its value. PS - and 7000,7500,10000? How many of those are dublicates and how many of those people are just die hard haters of cod who hate on something they don't have to buy for the sake of spending their time doing something they think will help people because Activision is de evils?
Ha, I never bought the game, but I signed the petition. Patching a game should be to provide extras, not to fix issues with the game. That is just plain lazy, and I will not buy any game from Activision unless I read the reviews first.
And how much do you want to bet that next year when the next Call of Duty comes out every single one of these idiots who signed this is going to go and buy it? Didn't everyone bitch and complain about Modern Warfare 2 sucking? When will people learn? Seriously...
If your a fan of the series obviously you're going to be curious how the new game will turn out. Loved the series since cod 2 but I stopped at cod 4.
like the Steam group against L4D2, and almost everyone in it ended up buying the game anyways.
nah more than likely im renting it i returned mines almost immediately after i beat it its not worth $60 at all .. both versions i didnt have many troubles with online but i only played online like 5 times but i did have troubles
i played 27 + days worth of MW2 and would of continued to do so if I hadn't been hacked and lost everything. I tried switching to Bops, but is far worse than MW2. Personally I haven't decided whether to pick up MW3. And MW is made by Infinity Ward not Treyarch, I will not put another cent towards Treyarch. Despite being hacked, which I am pissed about, I know its not IW fault, but you would think that the thousands of people it has happened to they would do something.
@ nnotdead Yeah, most of the people I knew that were in the group waited until L4D2 was less than $7 during the summer Steam sale.
Just stop playing the game. Bunch of idiots.
Kotick just wiped his $%# with the petition. They got what they wanted, YOUR money.
I would like to know the developer's perspective regarding the various versions.
I own the 360 version and still want to sign this.
Wow what a world we live in where people think they are entitled to compensation for thier stupidity. You chose to buy the game and now you will never be able to take that back. Try renting next time. Or better yet, dont by milked sequels.
And we all know, these petition signers will be first in line for the next installment of COD...that might be due for release 3 months from now.
its funny given the fact that the ps3 version has more people online daily compared to the xbox. of course, we're all busy playing those xbox "exclusives" instead of black ops.
what exclusives? lolol
Oh! I see what you did there.. http://jamiedubs.com/fuckfl...
But I still want a refund. **Signs petition. -End of Line
Wow i definitly prefere playing battelfield bad company than call of joky.
well next COD will come out and all those 7000 who signed will buy the next so whats the point?
lol..... COD MW2 was my last COD game and trade it by the time i was done with the lame ass campaign... ive borrowed COD - BO from my mate... who said it has worst campaign and online... i havent tried online... but i agree with him about the campaign... peace
funny thing too is i just got it for Xmas today haha i hope they fix the multiplayer because it is quite bad with the lag
wooo!!! i'm drunk as a skunk and ripten has brought the funk, merry xmas to all don't be a punk or santa give u a lump of junk -- peace on a serious note, call of duty has been decent for me on ps3, i don't know if i have dumb luck or what but i sincerely hope that acti and crew shape up for the millions of ppl experiencing issues out there that's just not cool , good luck to all and as a good friend of mine says god bless.
I try not to get drunk anymore. Hangovers suck more as you age but cheers and Merry Ho-Ho. On topic: As usual these problems are over blown. I have a ton of people on my friends list playing Black Ops all the time. If it was as bad as some of these stories made it out to be they would have moved on to other games.
@Brutally...I hear that, brother. In my 20s I could put vodka away like it was water, eat a bunch of Taco Bell and sleep for 12 hours then wake up and go surfing. Now, at 37, I went out last night after work, had two margaritas, that BBQ chicken wrap from Red Robin and was in bed at 10:30 and my head STILL hurts.
I have the resolution to your problems... your not drinking enough... keep at it and don't quit....haha anyways Merry Christmas to all.
2 words: Chaser Plus
Activision won't give anyone their money back, if they do, I will eat my dog. Seriously - If Activision actually gives anyone a refund for Black Ops I will eat my dog. /woof
If they refund I'll join you
I completely agree. if Activision gives anybody their money back, i will also eat chinese food.
@Yardie I'm Chinese, and I find this extremely hilarious. Bubbles.
Yardie, that was just to funny man. bahaha!
HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Caught me off guard on that one!! Very funny!!!
they wont refund money because people keep playing. when star trek armada II came out it was a broke hunk o crap. fans complained and complained to activision and they were ignored. they did a petition and it was ignored. then one dude contacted the federal trade commission and its consumer protection affairs office. he posted the link to the online complaint form and people started hammerin that crap. and they posted the link on the activision forums and made sure they knew. they tried to ban the dude that started it but that ban got mysteriously reversed. next thing you know activision is in full reverse swearing they would move mountains to fix the damn thing and they did. petitions dont mean squat includin 7000 measely sigs. get the ftc on their ass and see if it helps. https://www.ftccomplaintass...
Damn right. People need to break out the big guns. I don't own BO, so I don't have an opinion on this matter. Sounds terrible though.
I've long advocated gamers having their OWN, non profit seeking or making site(so there's no need to worry about upsetting advertisers)that could support things andf movements like this. As it is a lot of gamers, like Acti, just refuse to take petitions seriously but a site geaared towards gamers rights with links to organisations like industry watchdogs in various nations etc might make a more untied front and stop the industry messing us around so badly. Gamers have an, unfair imho, rep for being over entitled at heart but I can't imagine any other consumer group taking what we do while not doing anything concrete about it. RROD wouldn't be tolerated by car owners or TV buyers, would it? No other industry cries about second hand sales either-so to me it's the industry who have this sense of being special. Naturally, something like I imagine would take some organising but I've come close a few times to trying to seriously put one together myself and only the lack of a seriously talented web designer stopped me last time(now I'm disabled I have nothing but time!!)I gotn wound up at something! Thing is, it could be filled with articles by gamers, art by gamers, reviews by gamers and being RUN totally by and for gamers could start to change attitudes about piracy and fanboyism(the two things we DO do wrong to some extent)which would gain us industry respect. Maybe I'm just an old romantic but anyone who'd like to see something along these lines(ideas and talent more than welcome) feel free to PM me about it. With gamers coming from all walks of life it could become a real co-op support for a worldwide gaming community free to support gamers and poll up sites and the industry when we all feel a bit duped. Could also act as a bit of a springboard for the more talented content creators and gatherers among us too=-who knows I just think it's needed.
I'll join you too because i know they won't do it... specially with Kotick in there... he'll just be like ohh, we'll release a series of patches overtime that will fix the game.... and by the time the game is completely done.... the new COD is out.
Yeah, way to take initiative but there's no way in he'll anyone is getting their money back. Fact.
they all signed that petition for nothing
no money back for them activison prolly just looked and lawl'd everywhere hence reason why i stopped buying cod years ago
Lol waste of time sell it on ebay if u dont want it am sure other might want it
It's hard to feel sympathetic for anyone who buys an Activision game.
Took the words right out of my mouth lol.
I know everyone on this site pleads with everyone and cautions them to not do it and than like clockwork EVERY year now the complaints start instantly after the games release.
Very true, I've always said never to support Activision cause they are the douchebags of the gaming industry. It's people like these that make these a-holes successful.
People like my hilarious mates who know my stance on Activision but also know that, if given only one option, I caan be forced into buying Acti games as presents-they're the worst! Worst of all if the wife! She prefers TF2, Warhawk and CS but LOVES to make me squirm by demanding COD games!! I don't actually dislike the core game(as it stands as a yearly riff on MW1)but all the corner cutting and lck of value offered to the people who gave the series it's success and the fact that neither HD console has dedicated servers for the market leading online FPS in 2010 is a bit of a sick joke in my eyes. So is the disparity in the dev and marketing budgets for a game which sells itself. Why no beta Why so little QA Why so few innovations? Because it still sells better every year on the back of, again yearly, good press written before all the gamers notice the lack of polish, the bugs, glitches and exploits. Before we notice the broken party systems and lag, lag, lag plus disconnection issues! Before we see one platform operating as usual while the others go, somehow, backwards! I do feel like more people are getting onto Kotick's outlandish outbursts and shit eating grin AND that COD/GH and other Acti games aren't being made with much care or QA but STILL that's only a portion of the tiny portion who read ANYTHING around gaming. COD's complacency, like Pro Evo's before(didn't move on whilst being dominant and Fifa ate it)it is the biggest danger to it's crown and with so many other shooters diluting the floating vote COD, atm, sadly has a strong hand despite the state of Blops on PS3 in particular. Awful on PC to when I tried a little at a mates as well.
it's futile guys you could start a petition to kill Bobby Kotick too but until you find someone to do it nothing will happen.
... That's going a little too far, don't you think? Sure, the guy is a uber-douchebag but.. Killing a innocent human being..? Think dude. It's real life, not video game. He's not just a random soldier you happened to have bumped into & knifed at close-range in Black Ops lol... That sort of shit could leave a huge impact on your life. Waking up in the middle of the night thinking.. What if he didn't die? Am I bad person? Seeing his ghost in your dreams, imagination.. etc etc..
lol. I'd never condone death on anyone man. Just making an example, a bad one I guess lol
Woah, woah , woah.........INNOCENT?!
Woah, woah, woah........ HUMAN?!?
Woah, woah , woah.........REAL LIFE!?!
Woah, woah , woah...........ZOMBIE!!??
It would be the most Ironical thing in the world if he would be attacked in real life with a NOOB TUBE...
wtf is ironical?
as stupid as it sounds "ironical" is actually in the dictionary.
