MW3 360 Being Pushed, PS3 Screwed Over Again?

GS Writes: "So far, all of the Call of Duty games I have purchased have been on the PS3. This is about to change though, because there has been far too many problems with crappy porting, lag and a whole lot more in the past. As soon as I finished the Modern Warfare 3 reveal trailer, I noticed something."

It's not only PS3 guys getting screwed over, it's everyone. Activision only really seem to care about money, not the product they put out.

Dragun6192707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

Well, it shouldn't be surprising. I always thought the deal between MS and Activision for Time Exclusive DLC for Call of Duty games til 2012 included exclusive Advertising rights. Still, Rumor is the latest PS3 bundle will be bundled with Cod: Black Ops. Probably trying to boost the sales for the soon to be released Cod Map Packs for PS3. Activision, maximizing the potential sales for Cod games and Cod Map Packs.

Active Reload2707d ago

If your favorite game was as popular as COD I'm sure it would have the same problems it has. I'm referencing your comment concerning Activision screwing people over. People have a choice in what they want to spend their money on. So why sit around on the computer complaining about what you personally think a company is doing to their fans?

-Alpha2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

It isn't surprising-- the site is trying to make a big deal out of nothing and they know it.

He sees the XBox logo on the end and feels forced/pressured to get the 360 version? Give me a break. How long has this been going on for? I've seen tons of these multiplats get advertised on one console. Yet he complains now to make a BS story.

MaxXAttaxX2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

The FPS crowed is bigger on Xbox. So marketing and overall support might be stronger on it.

Aside from that, there isn't much to indicated they're purposely making COD worse on PS3.
Extra DLC/content maybe. But who cares? It's the same sh** on any system LOL

NexusCurb2707d ago

@NathanExplosion
"The FPS crowed is bigger on Xbox."

Yes, but that is due to the fact that the only FPS Xbox have GoW and Halo, so the only choice they have is to play COD other than those games that are released every 3-5 years

But the PS3 has too many exclusives, Uncharted, Killzone, Resistance, MAG, SOCOM and so on... So I bet if all the people that play those games come to play COD, there will be a big difference between Xbox 360 players and PS3 players playing on COD. Even like that, the Black Ops crowed on PS3 is the same as on Xbox 360 (trust I have both) average 600k on X360 and 600k on PS3.

Anyways that's how M$ and Activi$ion are.

JasonPC360PS3Wii2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

@NexusCurb Gears of War isn't an FPS. I did notice how most of those PS3 exclusives you listed are FPS. PS3 has more FPS on it's table than 360 does, and you guys call the 360 an FPS console. It just goes to show Sony realy wants america, and they should, it's the number one market. The true reason why CoD is pushed more on the 360 is because it outsells PS3 and PC vesrions combined.

MaxXAttaxX2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

Sony has had America since the PS1 days, buddy.

Sure, PS3 has a couple more exclusive FPS games than 360, but they're the minority.
They're successful, but they're not the most successful genre on PS3. Why?
Variety.

COD on 360 selling more than "PS3 and PC versions combined" is a good thing, I guess. But there's a very sad side to that...

Bordel_19002707d ago

@jason

Uncharted also is not a fps.

Anyway, I think you have a point. USA is without doubt land of the FPS. COD sells more on X360 than Killzone 3, MAG, Socom, Resistance 2 and CoD combined on PS3. There aren't that many more fps exclusives on PS3 either, the ones mentioned here are about it.

I also think Sony has made an extra effort to push FPS games on PS3 aimed at the US market. While in Europe sales are spread over a lot more different types of games, fps still is top of the list here aswell.

Gantrfaxx2707d ago

I don't have time for another crappy COD game. Not with Killzone 3, Resistance 3 And Battlefield 3 around later this year.
Ps3 owners should not buy MW3.

paintsville2706d ago

Well if 360 is being pushed then the ps3 is in trouble. ps3 can't keep up with 360 when developers take full advantage of 360's abilities and don't try and develop with the lowest common denominator(ps3)in mind. Yeah if MW3 is pushing 360 to the max then the ps3 game won't even come close.

evrfighter12706d ago

This shouldn't be a big deal at all

Nvidia the way it's meant to be played. This kind of marketing has been around for years.

BubbleSniper2706d ago

a well said bubble has be dawned upon you.

jessupj2706d ago

@paintsville

Wow, do you honestly believe the 360 is more powerful than the PS3? Guess you've been living under a rock and haven't seen a single PS3 exclusive in action.

I know he's a troll, but I couldn't help myself.

MaxXAttaxX2706d ago

I have no idea what you're saying.
Microsoft outselling the PS3?? What??

I'm speaking in terms of gaming. Sony(PlayStation) has been successful in America and everywhere since the PS1.
The Microsoft(Xbox) didn't have much of a crowed until the 360 came out.

Not only has the game long ago become GUITAR OF DUTY,

But Activision ensures the PS3 version is subpar because MICROSOFT PAYS THEM EXTRA. Kottick said so himself that Activision gets a little piece of the XBOX LIVE fees, and while I can't prove it, I'm convinced that's at least partially why XBOX LIVE went up to $60.

At anyrate, if you're a PS3 user, and you buy this BS, you really need to stop lapdogging back to Activision each year, just to end up getting sh177ted on.

If you don't stop buying, then they'll have NO earthly reason to do better by you.

Stop supporting junk people.

*rant off*

Persistantthug2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

" Activision does enjoy a "very modest amount of the subscription fees," Kotick told us, but he's more interested in seeing any cost increase in the service go towards "directly benefitting the Call of Duty players."

"But Activision ensures the PS3 version is subpar because MICROSOFT PAYS THEM EXTRA"

I'm sorry, but no proof= no buy.

I don't see people claiming that Dead Space 2's lack of bonus content (Extractions) on 360 was a ploy by Sony and EA to make the 360 version inferior. Yet that instance was clearly a case of a Sony/EA partnership keeping the 360 version back with exclusive content.

You can't assume MS pays them just because Black Ops was subpar on PS3. I don't recall MW2, COD4, or WaW being significantly inferior on PS3. It's just as likely that Treyarch was simply incompetent considering there is no pattern of evidence. MS and Acti are in a business deal to get exclusive content, and from this I've seen a lot of people claim this means PS3 versions were purposely made inferior.

Not saying that it's not possible of course, but I don't see any reason to think so other than "MS and Acti have a partnership, MS and Acti are evil corporations". That's not good enough reason.

CYCLEGAMER2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

OMG....STFU......I didn't hardly hear or see any complaints or articles when Mortal Kombat or L.A. Noire was being marketed like it is a ps3 exclusive. I know L.A. Noir was supposed to be exclusive but its not. I didn't see any Mortal kombat 360 comercials but I sure saw the ps3 logo/case on tv, Netherealm studios clearly made the ps3 copy the better version especially with all of the bonus content, and what about Dead Space? SMH

Folks this thing goes both ways. You crybaby's find a reason to complain about everything. You know it's coming to the ps3 and you are going to get it so just shut the hell up, stop complaining and play the damn games.

LOLWAT Link please.

Persistantthug2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

The issue is, ACTIVISION issuing out BROKEN games.

Those hack-glitches, which had people flying (literally flying), were prevalent FOR YEARS without even so much as a finger lift to fix it. There's no freakin excuse for that....not when there's 8 to 10 million people buying those POS games each.

They've been making that game since 2006 on the PS3.....5 of them, so making a half a$$, broken down version each year simply because Sony won't pay them extra is not acceptable....not in the slightest.

That's what my rant is about folks.

@awiseman, (because you just posted right before this)

The link is in the post after my main one.

CYCLEGAMER2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

@Peristantthug
Almost everything in your comments to myself and others, contradicts itself.

The topic of this article is "*MW3 360 Being Pushed, Ps3 Screwed Over Again*" your first comment supported that theory with the first three words "*PS3 owners ESPECIALLY* need to grow a backbone and stop supporting this BS game.

Those problems/bugs that MW2 had were present on both version so why are you pushing for PS3 users only to stop supporting the game? If you truly are just upset about activision putting out "crap" games then shouldn't you be advocating that everyone stop supporting them?

You are right (and wrong) about one thing though, no this is not JUST about bonus content, its about marketing AND bonus content.

If activision or any other developer feels that they can make more money by marketing to a certain console then so be it that is there right, and it is also the right of EA (Dead Space) Netherelm (Mortal Kombat) etc....So again STFU and play the damn games (or not). :o)

Persistantthug2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

I don't care about DEAD SPACE extra content....I don't care about GTA 4 timed content, and I don't even care about COD content.
You seem to be stuck on this "content".
Broken game =/= timed content, MELMAN26.

I'm talking about the game is fracked up to unbelievable proportions on the PS3 every doggone year even though they've been making the game since 2006.

And no...the game isn't broken on XBOX 360 like it is on the PS3. As the article said the game, MW2 was pretty much unplayable. The issue isn't a glitch....rather, it was an actual exploitative CODE HACK that you downloaded to the files of said COD game. It had nothing to do with PS3 hacking, btw...it was inherent only to COD.

Also the game LAUNCHES f'd up on the PS3, and its many times worse than the 360, and for much longer.

Lastly, there is nothing contradicting in what I said, nothing at all.

Nutshell:
PS3 users should stop supporting this BS, Activision needs to fix and do better.....Stop buying this damn game until they do, because you speak with your wallet.

Nothing contradicting sir. No offense, but you were reaching with that.
Good night.

(I'll make sure I PM you so you get this)

evrfighter12706d ago

I dont normally agree with persistant. But I often tell people they do have a voice. Your wallet has a lot of pull when it speaks so I agree with him.

Should a rehashed cod ps3 sell more than all these ps3 games coming out later this year...would be lol worthy

CYCLEGAMER2706d ago (Edited 2706d ago )

@persistantthug,
You didn't read my whole statement did you? I understand what YOU are saying, and I agreed that this is not just about content. What I am saying is that this topic about more than just content, its about MARKETING, BRANDING, ADVERTISEMENT.

Obviously you only own or played the game on ps3, like I said before the problems of MW2 persist on both consoles and is the reason that I stopped playing it in the first place, yes there were men flying around on the xbox version as well, I own both systems.

You contradict yourself by pretending that you are for gamers and that people should not support activition but you make a comment like, *All PS3 USERS* should stop supporting this crap. Like I said if this is about Activision and your intentions are as pure as you say they are then why are you singling out PS3 users? Shouldn't you be saying that EVERYONE needs to stop supporting activision?

Just my opinion but it sounds a little fanboyish to me.

phantomexe2706d ago

I like that Guitar of Duty thats some clever wording, so true tho. I'm not tossing cash at another call of milk it game. Now battlefeild 3 day 1.

midgard2272707d ago

yeah its weird, MS acts like COD is an exclusive or something, they need to spend that money on real exclusives instead

raddbj032707d ago

first party exclusives are a thing of the past, as far as a sales tool. online gaming is taking over, and the quality of online service or exclusive dlc/advertising/bundles is far better use of money than locking in exclusives. microsoft has benefited from this trend in gaming, sony has struggled.

badz1492707d ago

thing of the past, ha? ok...whatever you say dude, but save it for yourself!

Narutone662706d ago

Only FPS games sell well on the 360 and that is the only genre the xbox is going to be known for. Small wonder MS heavily advertise FPS games.

zu4G2706d ago

we dont even care, we PS3 boyz got lots of Exclusive games coming out this year..

RIP_Weazel2706d ago

Mmmmm,ok fella. Well done. Go get a cookie and be happy with your clever observation.

DarkFantasy2706d ago

COD is still the best online multiplayer for a fps on ps3 on the 360 it's Halo..killzone 3 is crap,socom 4 is so-so Uncharted 2 owns super fun BFBC2 is great but it needs more modes and maps it got boring after a while and i had every thing unlocked but it's awesome with friends can't wait for BF3 hope it has lots of stuff,warhawk owns starhawk looks awesome but i think Twisted Metal will be the best mp game for Ps3 TM is soo fun it should be illegal ...but cod has given me lots of fun over the years and i respect it,sure it's got problems but you people on N4G act like it's the worst game ever made and it's not..you got complants head to actvison or IW forums post them there and stop you're crying bunch of noobies and babies is all i see here.

bottom line

likedamaster2706d ago (Edited 2706d ago )

Wow @how quickly ps3 fangirls forget about EA's whole game lineup being marketed exclusively for Sony's platform. Along with Assassin's Creed, Mortal Kombat, and other titles from other developers.

Let it go, the only ones crying about it is you diehards.

avengers19782706d ago (Edited 2706d ago )

This is clearly an opinion piece. Because I will buy and enjoy COD:MW3 on my ps3, and as far as problems go with blackops, well they were on both systems... I know I mostly played that game on my friends 360, and not my own PS3...but ran into many of the same troubles.
As far as Activison goes, they are heavily driven by profit just like every other huge corporation, but really the problem is everyone will continue to support them, because they do put out some pretty huge titles.

360 always gets the best cod experience IMO. Mw2 was decent on ps3 but blops is a disaster.

Funny I find a better experience on the PS3 in my house than on the 360 with the same internet connection. I get disconnected alot on the 360.

Im pretty sure none of that is true , and I have a strong suspicion that that statement may have come from your ass

Nitrowolf22707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

MS owns exclusive rights with Activision for DLC and marketing.
I hate this idea just in general from Activision. Like i mentioned before, if Activision is gonna bitch for a price cut on PS3 so there product could do better, then why only advertise for one system?

NYC_Gamer2707d ago

they always promote call of duty like its 360 exclusive

guigsy2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

As much as Assassin's Creed is promoted like it's a PS3 exclusive. Most multiplatform games are promoted platform specifically because of marketing deals they make with the platform holders. It's not evidence that the promoted version will be better than other versions though.
