Activision using Black Ops PS3, PC players 'like game testers' - Pressure group

Pro gamer consumer lobby group Gamers' Voice has slammed Activision for treating PS3 and PC Call of Duty: Black Ops players like game testers.

Confirming plans to submit a formal complaint "to the relevant government agencies" this week over problems with the "unfinished" PC and PS3 versions of the massively popular shooter, the organisation said:

"The view of Gamers' Voice is that it doesn't matter how big a game is, it should not be released 'unfinished' or with bugs that make the game unplayable, which are words we have seen in a lot of emails to us recently.

I'm done testing...I sold my copy weeks ago and will never fall for it again.

I learned from MW2, that was my first COD game after MW1 and I said a year ago I would never buy into it again, and I wasn't even moderately hyped for black ops

gamingdroid3737d ago

I have never really encountered most of these issues surrounding CoD issues over the last 3-4 iterations of the game. Granted, I'm on the Xbox 360... it seems like a lot of it is overblown. I'm sure it is problematic for those that do experience it though.

Is it really that bad? Why am I only hearing about this in the last 2 weeks?

the same people complaining will buy the next version

I've never bought a COD game and never will. COD is overrated trash imo.

edgeofblade3737d ago

Are we talking about all the back to the first Call of Duty in WWII, or the recent evergreen CODs?

Active Reload3737d ago

Then how do you know its trash?

hatchimatchi3737d ago

Just because I haven't bought them doesn't mean I haven't played them. Black Ops sold like 12 million copies. It's not hard to have a friend who owns the game.

nycredude3737d ago

Not true nyc
Black ops is not being purchased and i have urge to even play it. I borrowed MOH from my bro and haven't even finished it. Was shooters are way oversaturated.

rezzah3737d ago

COD 1,2, and 4 are the best, the rest are overrated.

These people are stupid. Black ops may not be great but Im SURE there have been games that were just as glitchy and crappy and they never got sued for it.

I havent bought and COD since 4, so i guess its easy for me to be critical of these people who keep buying COD EVERY YEAR and then complain about it, every year.

If all these people who keep complaining never bought COD over and over again then maybe Activision would do a better job.

CoD has been going down hill FAST since CoD4, but it seems people would still rather buy it and complain then simply not buy a CoD game.

Not the worst game ever but definitely far from being deserved of its sales and hype. The online portion of the game is as broken as it was Day 1, if not worse.

plb3737d ago

I'm trading it in towards KZ3.

skywalkeruk3737d ago

It's a shame that a good franchise has been completly let down by the online gameplay which at times is just unplayable. The connection isssue needs to be sorted without question. You can just see from the release of First Strike which console they're putting before the rest, need I say more....
