our engine: everything in it is perfectly freaking clean and fast.
lol he just said it a faster copy past engine.

Will the game quality and support be consistent across all platforms? Some PS3 and PC Call of Duty players have felt a bit hard done by on previous occasions?

I'm not sure what the issues were with the last one, but there's nothing to worry about with this one.

how can u not be sure what was wrong with the last one.
it really buggs me for him to say that i mean how can u not know? its your game

Peppino72921d ago

If that's the case then it looks like they put the porsche engine inside of a kia model! What a waste of computing horsepower then.

Washington-Capitals2920d ago

Car analogy is stupid.

its all about TRADE OFFS PEOPLE.

I mean, for a MULTIPLAYER game i dont mind the graphics as much, they are "RESPECTABLE" and i will TRADE OFF better graphics for smoother gameplay and better MP.


Who cares all I want is my fast pace arcade addictive online gameplay. Damn November can't come soon enough :(

"If you put Modern Warfare 2 next to Modern Warfare 3 you would see a huge difference"
enough said

tepkisiz2921d ago

I dont think that anyone who hasnt played COD before will be able to distinguish MW2 screenshots from MW3 screenshots.
They should stop talking about better graphics, which obviously is not their strongest point.

theonlylolking2921d ago

Another reason why they should stop talking about graphics is because the game is on all current gen consoles.

Perjoss2921d ago

oi, leave the Z4 alone!

frostypants2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

Or the Panamera. The 4-door Porsche sedan. LOL. For the automobile consumer that has more money than pride...

Except EA hold the rights to Porsche.
Sledgehammer will have to make it a RUF engine now.

Damn you EA!

veChuy2921d ago

Yea right everyone know that this engine is old and looks horrible at this moment compare to other engines

princejb1342921d ago

idk what game you been playing but black ops look worse than modern warfare 2
so no the engine doesn't look outdated, it actually looks like a newer engine when you play black ops for a long time

jozzah2921d ago

I don't even understand what you just tried to say.

OT: The engine is outdated as a muther trucker.

ginsunuva2921d ago

Ah I see their trick! Make a good looking game (cod4) then make it look worse (waw) then make it look just as good as cod4 (mw2) then bad again (bo) then back to normal (mw3)

People will think the graphics get better when they really dont lol!

Cosmit2921d ago


You do know that WaW and BO are made by a different studio right?

GraveLord2921d ago

They modify the engine with each and every COD game released. I'll leave you with this quote from the article

"I've said this before - I'm not shipping an engine, I'm shipping a game. So that's why I'm going to talk about the game. You can talk about your engine all you want. It's not fun."

Cosmo8112913d ago

"Compared to other engines"

You mean Battlefield 3?

You want people to try to compete with Battlefield 3's engine?

I'm not the biggest Call of Duty fan, but to say it needs a new engine is kind of ridiculous. What most non-fans don't understand is that the majority of people that play the game online don't care about the visuals. As long as it runs at 60fps on a console and maintains the same level of controller response, they'll be happy. It's far from being a bad looking title regardless.

Battlefield 3 is always there for those that want the visual component, but even when I go online with that, the graphics aren't the thing I care about. I'm focused on the task at hand. That's why Call of Duty won't look different this generation, because its played for the pace of the game, not mind-blowing graphics.

The Source Engine says hi!

ECM0NEY2921d ago

Im pretty sure most CoD players cant tell the difference between 30 FPS and 60 FPS.

Like Cliffy B said "give it the mom test".

floetry1012921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

It's a subconscious reaction. They might not know that it runs at 60 frames, but they'll notice that its fast and more frenetic than most, hence why more people play it over a variety of other FPS's. The pace of the game is equalised by performance. You don't need to know the technicality of it, you just feel it.

Baka-akaB2921d ago

No one told them to drop below 60 fps . But they aint really trying that hard nor that hard at work for all their empty talk and bravado .

As flawed as it might be , stuff like Rage make them look lazy , and show there are plenty alternative to achieve good lokking 60 fps .

SAE2921d ago

i don't but i feel it when i play ...

Asgaro2921d ago

@ floetry101
LOOL, you really think 60 frames per sec is the selling factor for CoD games?
I bet most gamers don't even know what frames per sec mean.
CoD sells a lot because of the perk system, killstreak system, and fast leveling system.

What they need to do, take 4+ years building a new engine. Showcase whats possible with said tech on PC.

Later, show far less impressive console footage and watch console gamers whine over lazy developers and whatever other excuse they can, other than point the finger at the aging console hardware.

My point is, at this stage, it's not worth creating a new engine for this gen, better off focus on building your next tech for the next gen. COD still looks good enough and runs at a smooth 60fps, one of the few console games that does.

spektical2921d ago

GG made improvements on their engine, you think ND hasnt done some on theirs.. Just take a look at the character models, and you'll be blown away.

COD wont change because people are buying it like no tomorrow, so why spend money when you can just release the product and get more money.
