Tina Palacios shares the highlights from today’s Call Of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer event in LA.
COD, Xbox Live By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson
Too many too fast. Lost all interest in COD series.
This is what happened to Acitvision’s other cash cow, Guitar Hero. Except COD deserves it to happen more than Guitar Hero ever did. And its going to happen again with Skylanders.
ATVI loves to milk franchises for all they’re worth and then just kill them, instead of a proper slow burn with a new game every 2 or 3 years. In the long term, they’d make more money that way, but its all about short term PROFITS PROFITS PROFITS! Too bad they can’t seem to return any of those back to shareholders. That alone is evidence of the failure of their strategy.
Fire Kotick, put me in charge.
But I wanna be in charge.
You can take turns! Okay?
he can have blizzard. i will take activison.
i think thats better. now for the negotiations.
Doesn’t even look next gen on the next gen consoles
1-They programed it for too many systems and the graphics look like they catered to x360/ps3 not one/4 (wii u falls somewhere in there).
2-If you look at the difference from Halo 2 to Halo 3 there is some jump but it takes time for the games to look better. I think there was more of a Jump from Halo 3 to 4 thats on the same platform but 7 years apart.
Once 360 and ps3 are gone you will see a big difference in the engi and gameplay. that and after it has been out for a couple of years.
also look at the difference from Halo 3 to Reach. Its less of a jump but still it looks amazingly better.
Sadly, I have to agree with you. Any game that gets ported to the old gen from the get go will likely not be significantly better on next gen. I’m hoping Diablo 3 is an exception.
Watch the Aishia Tyler trailer of Watch_Dogs and compare that to the E3 PS4 presentation.
Watch Dogs looks awful on 360/PS3
theres a lot of games made for 360/ps3, xboxone/ps4, the fact that it looks the same on next gen has nothing to do with its current gen counterparts, their just a lazy development team cashing in on a franchise that used to be great, they blamed their pre order numbers on next gen hesitation, the reason their pre-orders are low is because there are far better games coming out, gtav, battlefield 4, watch dogs, payday 2, titanfall and dead rising all of which are introducing something new.
ps4 version is better.
This lady is going to get destroyed by the twitter clowns and all the other people who complain about the game on their forums.
Are people going to be more mad at the people knifing dogs or women?
Women complain they want to be treated equally in entertainment, well…. now the can get stabbed just as men can in the game, im waiting for this game to be on oprah and the papers to put a controversial spin on things.
I’m not a huge Cod fan, but I’m excited for what they are doing seeing it tends to bleed into the other FPS and non FPS games out there. I wish that more games had the amount fo custom opitions for them. I like the char creater and the shared exp from mode to mode.
Yes this game looks like the engi from Black Op2 but its a good start in a new direction.
Comp breeds better games for us all. (i am preordering BF4 but I would like to be able to create people in the same fashion I saw in this video)
Major and the whole Xbox One team. Take notes from the COD Ghosts event today. They are selling the product correctly. They talked about things, then SHOWED THEM to us. You need to do this with Xbox One ASAP. Sharing? Make a video showing how it works. Install and play while its downloading, SHOW US! The more videos showing us how we’re going to interact with your product the more people are going to get excited.
Hell, I swore off COD games, but that presentation makes me want to get Ghosts.
And they were extremely clear in their intentions and design goals.
Man, I’d LOVE to see how people in this generation would act if they grew up in the 80′s & 90′s and didn’t really have any internet to find out about products. You had to buy magazines to know anything, but things were still a surprise and you had to figure out how to use it when said product came out.
Now a days people expect to know everything about a product or know everything about a game before they even come out. Look back at the KI demo at the reveal / E3, they showed a quick demo on how you record then upload via the twitch app, very quick and easy.
Man, keep some of the surprise as it will be that much sweeter when you open the box and try it out for yourself!
Trust me, I remember the 80′s very well.
We live in an information age. Back in the 80′s consoles just played games. You either liked the games that one console had over the other and you picked it. Now, there’s a lot of different features coming from one console vs the other console. You have to stand out more based on those features now.
We arent living in a game catalog war anymore. It’s all about hardware and the features that the system has. The more information the better.
I realize that MS and Sony are probably sitting with their hands tied because SOME or most features arent set in stone on how they look on the console so they CANT show us in details at the moment. But they do need to start thinking about getting us familiar with how the system works.
I think the COD Ghosts presentation was awesome because it showed us how stuff worked more than just talking about new features.
I understand what you mean, I do. But for me at least, I’d like to kind of just figure some of it out on my own. From what we have seen so far, it all looks very quick and easy.
Of course I can’t wait to see new stuff either but at this point all I really care about is the launch date lol, anything else is just icing on the cake
you know what gun this game needs the G3 for CoD4:MW ovi bring it up to the times man i loved that gun!
Bring on Gamescom!
Grand Theft Auto 5 >>>>> Call of Booty Ghosts.
HAHA, Activision, Treyarch and Infinity Ward are making easy bank off you idiots that mercilessly defend that trashy series, Call of Booty. World at War was the last good game in the franchise, then it just went to hell after that. It’s funny how you nerds always cry about things like perks, killstreaks, lag-compensation, “OP” guns, camping, quickscoping etc., buy STILL purchase the same game every year like retarded sheep.
I hope Grand Theft Auto 5 outsells this garbage at least 3-to-1, but dumb gamers these days outweigh smart consumers.
GTA sells like crazy. Rockstar games in general do.
Too bad it isn’t on the next gen consoles though.
cod4:MW was the best and still is not WaW
…But GTA and CoD aren’t even in the same genre. I am not a CoD fan at all, but it still will sell like hot cakes. The only reason GTA would have higher sales numbers by the end of the year is because CoD will have two less months to sell.
And buying GTA makes you a smart consumer? How is a game that tries to be a Jack of all Trades but is indeed master of none make you smart? Rockstar games take themselves too seriously and pretend they are some masterpiece of art (but aren’t even going to be on next-gen consoles or PC at launch?). And Rockstar uses bully tactics to make sure their games always be seen in a good light (look it up, someone was fired for not writing a review by their guidelines).
Personally, I’d rather play SR4 since it doesn’t take itself seriously, has solid mechanics, and is actually fun, but this blog post is about CoD anyways.
In my opinion, Red Dead Redemption is a masterpiece.
I agree with that completely
It was meh at best just GTA in the west hardly ground breaking stuff.
Are you kidding, rockstar are one of the only companies in gaming that actually put their heart into their game, they dont just throw games out into the open like other companies just to cash in, they take their time and always manage to create something that feels fresh and excitiing.
And GTA Online looks like the most ambitious multiplayer mode ever.
If you watched the new trailer, I doubt you would say they take their games too seriously…
People have different tastes in games like everything else. I don’t see how your taste is any better than anyone else. If people enjoy a game then good for them. How is that so hard to understand?
Yep, people are stupid for buying games they have fun with! List some games you like so I can call you names and laugh at you because I think those games suck…. great logic.
While I agree with Corn to a certain extent, I also agree with you here. You can’t fault people on personal tastes.. and who is anyone to judge?
I wouldn’t call you an idiot, because i do the same myself, but don’t you feel just a little ripped off by buying Cod games? especially when the games have a lot of flaws due to them being rushed out of development and knowing that Cod is a multibillion dollar franchise and they wont give the time or money to fix their mistakes and make better quality games.
I love my Blops Zombies. I enjoy calling in Swarms. When 10 million plus people are active on a game there will be complaints. No need to hate my brotha
shes so hot and a DEV im in love :O
she is not a dev, she is a community manager
Sexys tiwtter says:Call of Duty dev working at @InfinityWard on #CODGhosts. Senior CM. Report cheaters/hacks to @IWenforcers. Formerly at IGN/1UP/EGM
lol how is that perving? behave shes hot and cute i like her shes seems nice so i follow er and shes a female dev its all good, your a perv
im writing based on this,
‘shes so hot and a DEV im in love :O’
okay maybe i should add a few words.
okay. carry on.
Oh, look! A female! I must comment on her appearance!
You need to spend a little less time thinking with your p3n!s, and a little more time paying attention in English class at school.
I just hope that they make a Hard Core version of all these new game modes
heh, talking heads show… any gameplay demonstration (without woof-woof)?
Anyone else notice she has a greek last name?
This game looked terrible, to say it was running on next gen it looked exactly the same as every other cod, theres no excuse for saying its because its on current gen, battlefield 4 is on current gen and next gen versions look miles ahead of current gen, its recycled rubbish and the fact they had to pay a celebrity to endorse the product was just bad.
It has the name CoD, it will get dislikes everywhere but get bought and played by millions upon millions of people. Best part is, most of the people that love to hate on it, buy it and play it as well.
Most people these days can’t think for themselves and have to be on some sort of hate bandwagon to feel like they are apart of something. I don’t understand it but that’s how it is “online”. Pretty funny though lol.
This is Tina formerly from 1up. She got a job with IW after IGN bought 1up…1up used to have a pretty cool podcast called “Good Grief” they later re-branded the “Oddcast”. She’s a pretty good egg and it’s good to see good things happen to good people…
I’ve never bought a CoD game but I can tell you they will probably have nothing to worry about as far as selling this game. And no, it’s not because people are idiots. Its because they like the game! Go figure!
And I love how you judge what they displayed by a streaming video that was at times buffering. Were you at the event? Did you witness the lag first hand? Do you know what the “audience” was? Do you realize that they tend to mute the crowd so you can hear the main person talking? Hmmmmm
I’m hoping for an official word on this too. Please!
I’m going to do the same thing and I’d say yes, it should and will work.
It all depends on whether the new XBL servers will be active in the Netherlands in November for the day one software update (and store), which I think they will (as all the servers around the Benelux are then already operational).
If they aren’t, it won’t be a problem for me either as I’ll just activate my Xbox One in Germany with my phone and play in offline mode until they are.
There is a eurogamer article about this. Im sorry but it seems holland wont be supported. But you can make a german account or migrate your existing account to Germany and you can use it. Just read the article it will hopefully help out a little
Thanks! Not a problem for me, I have a secondary US account and that will work.
I would also recommend using prepaid cards
hey roozbeh sup
whats with the , again
He is wondering why you now have the word ‘again’ at the end of your screen name.
yeah i figured that out
it was only blog account that got banned and not gt right
I guess we all know who got you banned, seeing as he’s boasting with a profile name about it. Just send Major Nelson an email and he’ll probably unban you.
They got you as well?
My previous account yes. No one is safe from the trolls
Same happened to my last account although I think a certain someone didn’t like different opinions.
i give up who is that someone?(me huh?)
No : P
His account got banned by mistake recently or something.
This is his new username.
I thought that you might like to know that there’s no country called Holland. Holland is a region of the country called “The Netherlands”.
i know. epic fail
it will work
Battlefield 4 is the way to go if your looking for a true next-gen shooter
So, no case zero here in Live Brazil, I should just accept that?
there is a topic for that you know
