Activision’s decided to come out in the open about the delay regarding starting the closed beta of Call of Duty: Elite on the PS3 aswell as promising that they’ll be able to start it soon.
Activision: There is no simple “port” for CoD: Elite on PS3, very complex dev challenge" Complains and more complains.The never ending story of the PS3. And emphasis on the "port".
"Activision: There is no simple “port” for CoD: Elite on PS3, very complex dev challenge" Translation = "We are just lazy and really only half ass make this game for the 360 then quickly port it to the PS3 and PC".
Complex dev challenge and COD on the same line... LOL Since when Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V is hard?
They can keep CoD Elite on the 360, PS3 gamers don't want this crap anyway.
Black Ops is the best selling game of all time on PS3, Modern Warfare 2 is the second best selling. I think it's safe to say Call Of Duty has a large following on PS3. Of course people on PS3 want Elite. I'm in the beta for the Xbox 360 and it's far superior to anything else available right now. It's so in depth. Comparisons to Bungie.net or anything else is premature and wishful thinking. Trust me when I say Elite is 10x better. You don't speak for the PS3 community, it's clear that there is a market for such a thing, research shows it.
Look, I AM the PS3 community, and the PS3 community is ME. If you think that PS3 gamers were happy with that crappy port called Black Ops, then you're out to lunch. Sales for MW3 will be 2:1 in favor of the 360 you know why? Because people like me will be playing Resistance 3, Uncharted 3 and PayDay: The Heist. Research shows it :D
"Activision: There is no simple “port” for CoD: Elite on PS3" - so we should expect a complex port?
@ Battle Axe that still does not answer the question why is Black Ops the number one played game on PSN? Surly if it is as bad as you say then PS3 gamers would not be playing it. Edit: Also how can one person on N4G that spends most of his time here than on PSN be the PS3 community.
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!! PS3 pre-orders for MW3 are already higher than Black Ops. I don't know you being the ps3 community but you apparently pre-ordered a ton of mw3 copies lol
I'm sure plenty would want it, but the question is how many are dumb enough to pay for it. I've not seen any feature that's really useful or worth paying for, is there more to it than what their website says?
I used to love COD but after playing the crap out of MW I just got bored with it. Great game for those who like to still play it but I just went through my GameQ on GameFly and holy crap there are a lot of games coming out. I enjoy SP more, anyway unless is innovative MP like Demon's Souls or team based like the old rainbow 6. So, I am going to get Battlefield but in all honesty, once Skyrim drops I will disappear forever.
Ok I don't play this game nor battlefield. I'm a resistance, halo, unreal kind of guy.Let's not kid ourselves that COD will be the best selling game again on the PS3. We might not want it but a vast amount of other PS3 players will.
This is what happens when you have a short development cycle. If they had more time they would have been able to solve this "very complex dev challenge" and release the Elite beta on the PS3 on time. It's 'best' to be optimistic about MW3 on the PS3 like Best and Inside_ out are... all hail the people's champ CoD/sarcasm o_O http://n4g.com/news/817743/...
a developer says it is having trouble with playstaiton 3 and the sony fanatics immediately blame the developer and call them lazy. It is never sony's fault. Sony is always right and they are just a victim of a global conspiracy lead by MS and followed by other developers to topple Sony. u guys never stop amazing me. @hitman below: wow..... spoken like a tipical n4g tin foil hat wearing sony fanatic. @battle axe above: u sound bitter. no need to hate on the game dude.
This is Activision we're talking about
Oh, shut up already!
Champions don't make excuses.
am I right?
Yet games still keep cranking out on PS3. I'm sure it's challenging, but isn't almost everything in development a challenge? Suck it up already.
All I heard was Microsoft shelled more money to us.....
Activision and Complex = does not compute. Activision and Port = Profit
bold faced lie. they have contract with microsoft for timed-exclusive DLC and we are expected to believe all these ps3 shortchanges are a coincidence? Get the f#$% outta here... only morons believe these people.
Only morons complain about sh*t they claim they don't care about in the first place.
Meh.. who cares.. CoD: Elite is teh garbage, crap, rubbish, bullsh*t etc..
Totally agree, that shits a cash grab from all the idiots blindly investing In it thinkinking theyre gonna become CoD superstars *_*
I thought black ops was built with cod:elite in mind. So after 3 years they just now dicided to port it over? I don't know about you fellas but that seems a bit half ass to me.
I don't know about this, they use to work with Sony alot and they think its complex? Sony would help them get it running right if they ask for help, because Sony has said they are willing to help developers understand the PS3. I think they are just making reasons to be lazy.
So their admiting its a port anyways xD
I will be playing my 300 plus hours of The Elder ScrollsV: Skyrim!
LOOOOL Translation : MS has given us soo much money that we must suck their cash balls for longer, and shit on the PS3 more.
This is how they treat a platform whose name has helped them grow?? THPS anyone?? Screw Activision, such money whores
Activision is just "playing safe" with ps3 owners, They don't want Elite to be ported to ps3, they want that to be 360 exclusive... Activision is just fvcking in favor with microsh!t... they hate sony though sometimes they praise them, but it's just a PR tactics to tame ps3 fans like me.... Fvck you activision
After Valve even came over and found a way to get Steamworks to work between PS3 and PC, you have Activision saying they can't do it and it's a port? It's obvious this team once again has no clue what they are doing with the PS3 architecture. If Valve can do it, there is no reason why it can't be done with CoD. Besides, if you chumps are arguing about a service that Bungie.net does for free with the games and website, then I fear for the industry. You Xbox fanboys are pathetic.
