Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is coming to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 6th, developed by Beenox and Mercenary Technology.

The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will feature the all three modes: campaign, multiplayer, and zombies. Activision has stated, however, that there will be feature differences between the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. They’ve revealed one of those differences, which is in the campaign mode; on Xbox 360 and PS3, players will only be able to play with a maximum of 2 players, rather than four players that will be available on current-gen platforms.

In addition, Activision has stated that there will be other feature differences that will be discussed leading up to the November 6th launch. Also, for those asking about the beta: the beta is only for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. There’s no plans for the beta on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Treyarch is working exclusively on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

Activision has also confirmed that there will not be a version for the Wii U.

GameStop is now accepting preorders for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on Xbox 360 and PS3. Amazon now has opened up preorders as well here. For PlayStation 3 players, the title can now be preordered digitally on the PlayStation Store here.

    Somehow I knew it. Shinobi told us long, long time ago (I think April?) it will be developed/ported by another studio.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      He’s no insider but he comes from GAF and has some crazy common sense.

      • LovekillerX

        I’m not going into that but you should know that his information isn’t common sense. He knew about Master Chief collection, Unity co-op, Dragon Age Inquisition DLC exact release date, wall running in BO3, old gen versions ported by another studio… you can’t make that up just by using common sense lol.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Gaffers know more than most. Doesn’t mean they are insiders. They probably go behind the scenes with trademarks and such. Like Wario64.

    WHY THE HELL ARE THEY STILL MAKING GAMES FOR 10 YEAR OLD CONSOLES THAT HAVE LESS RAM THAN MY FICKING PHONE

    Edit: If last gen is Campaign ONLY, then I’m not mad at all. HOWEVER: If it gets multiplayer or even remotely effects the current gen versions I’m going to be mad. As I said before the consoles are 10 years old and should have died last year. At this rate Ghosts 2 will have half a single campaign level and 2 1v1 maps.

    • Primey_

      Because money. People will still buy the 360/ps3 versions.

      • guest

        soon enough they are going to have to make the transition because eventually it wont be profitable

    • More sales

    • Mohamed Reda Taibi

      more money.and actually for an avid gamer like me. i can’t afford something expensive like a “next”-gen console(though my fav game Uncharted 4 is PS4 only).but when i saw the graphics in AW for old-gen.i thought it was crap.and ended up buying old games mw2 and WAW.may be Beenox and Mercenary Technology can do a good job.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        You had 1.5 years to invest. If you can afford a PC, you can afford a PS4.

        • guy

          lol as an adult, a PC is way more of a priority than a PS4

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Uh no.

          • guy

            Alright well I’m assuming this fanbase is mostly college age people but its probably just middle and high schoolers. Once you go to college or have a full time job you’ll see that a lot of people don’t have the money or time for gaming, whereas a PC is pretty much a necessity for everyone. I mean I love gaming but a PS4 just isn’t worth it right now.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Again, if someone can afford an expensive PC, then they can afford a PS4. And it’s a new console generation and E3 is right around the corner. There are hundreds of games on PS4 right now, and will have maybe thousands later.

          • guy

            If you’re talking about those crazy bastards that spend thousands on PC’s then yeah screw that, they could just buy a PS4 lol it feels more natural than using a keyboard anyways

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            In FPS yeah

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            A PC isn’t essential. As a college student, I can say for a fact that a laptop + PS4 is the best way to go. Laptops are extremely helpful, and almost essential, in college. It makes taking notes and doing assignments so much easier, and you can take it wherever you go, unlike a PC. So in regards to gaming as a college student, a PS4 + a laptop takes priority over a PC imo.

          • Something tells me you aren’t an adult… Anyhow, we could all use an Xbox or Playstation. They are important parts of video games, and PC just doesn’t give you that MLG hype you get from console. Whatever, I play practically everything, and I love my Xbox One over everything else.

          • guy

            You got me, I’m actually 12. I’m not talking about gaming, good luck trying to get through college with a ps4, besides Fallout 4 is like the only reason I’d buy one.

          • I have both console and PC, what’s my problem again?

          • guy

            Video game addiction? Compulsive spending? I don’t know, you tell me I don’t even know you.

          • I don’t have any problems, and that’s my point. At least not with video games and computers…

          • guy

            Lmao I never said you had any problems, where’d you get that from?

          • You seemed like you were implying it…

    • Michel

      Activision is like EA……. Horrible companies that make decent/good games, but they are money whores.
      Its sad, because this will make the potential DLC worse.
      For example they could have gone with 4 guns in each DLC, now they can’t because they are limited by the PS3/X360.

      • Rorke File

        That’s were I’m looking for in a current gen console but they can still not deliver it, hope COD2016 can.

      • Mark

        Exactly. Old gen holds back true next gen. I’ve been saving for an Xbox One and was really excited to see what a huge difference current gen could really do without last gen holding it back. Infinity Ward advertised next gen as “true next gen” when it was only a slight step up from last gen. AW was another step up, that could of been better without last gen. BO3 will also be a step up but can’t be the full step because of last gen holding it back. By the time Activision decides to drop last gen, we’ll be so used to almost-true next gen that it won’t feel like that big of a step up. The same thing with DLC guns will probably happen with BO3 because Activision just wants a bit more money and last gen consoles can’t take it.

        • guy

          Wow do you really think last gen can’t handle more guns, it’s all a bullcrap excuse, just look at all the content BF4 has even on last gen. Also who cares if it doesn’t feel like a big jump, in the end it’s the same quality product, that’s just some shitty logic you have.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Not just more guns. More overall content and features.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            What new content and features? You really expect Activision to allow devs to put in like 25 maps on launch? You expect 50+ weapons? No you dumb fuck, all they’d do is add more ways to get micro DLC from us. Normally different developers handle the last gen versions anyway. Besides weapon camos BO2 had a ton of content on last gen. Oh lord, let me stop before I come a “tryhard kid fanboy” who needs to make an account or whatever stupid cliche comeback you’ll spew out your feminine mouth

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Again, you’re a fucking idiot.

            If you haven’t been paying attention, then leave. Last time I checked, last gen couldn’t get new supply drops in an update. They have to hold back certain content for last gen. This is irrefutable fact.

            You’re not a try hard because I haven’t seen you play, but you’re a fanboy because you’re defending and excusing a billion-dollar company. Grow the hell up.

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            How is old-gen holding you back? Did current-gen get the royalty variants and the sac 1.5? Yes! But did old-gen? No! If old-gen was holding you current-gen back you wouldn’t have got royalty variants and the sac 1.5. I know you’re going to say “But we aren’t getting a weapon in DLC 3 and 4” Who gives a fuck. Do you use AE4? Do you use OHM? Would you use a weapon in DLC 3 and 4 if they was one? I highly doubt it!

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You’re seriously defending last gen? Wow.

            Activision THEMSELVES stated that they have to take out features in the last gen version. Content and features can be a problem because of last gen’s low memory. On current gen, they could put in dozens of weapons.

            But guess what? This means that Campaign and Zombies could be held back. Without a current gen only CoD, the maps can’t be bigger and better.

            Last gen is done. They’re 10 years old. You want them to port it to the Wii and PS2, too?

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            Of course I’m defending last-gen. That’s what I play on. And to make you even more pissed off, I would love BO3 to be on PS1 and Gameboy Advanced

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            K, enjoy half of a game, dick, and thanks for holding current gen and PC back.

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            Haha I’m not holding anyone back you lump of shit. It’s Activision. Also enjoy the 2 DLC guns

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            All you do is go around talking shit to people that don’t agree with you. Cite one legit piece of data that states last gen somehow holds current gen back? You don’t even know what the fucking game looks like. And even IF they ended last gen you’ll still find something to bitch about AFTER buying the game. Is the internet literally just a place for you to complain, try and make your opinion fact and call all that oppose your views “fanboy.” PC players have to deal with gimped games all the time due to console. You’re a piece of shit.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Says the one talking trash at me. I just defend myself or someone else from asinine fanboys like yourself.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            And I am done giving direct insults, because 1. You’re a sock account troll 2. It is immature. And most importantly 3. Negativity is a bad trait so instead of swearing at you, I’m going to wish you a good day, and stop replying to whatever negativity you’re trying to send. I’ll end it here.

          • Quentin Thomas

            vondahaar already said that last gen wont hold next gen behind that they don’t even have last gen kits anymore so yeah get off your next gen high horse

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Lmao it’s PR damage control. Last gen holds the game back no matter what any developer or publisher says.

          • Dylan Hatton

            Doesn’t hold it back, it just depends on what the 2 companies (stated above) want to port, for example they didn’t port the campaign nor splitscreen. In other words. shut the fuck up.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            No, you shut the fuck up. You’re objectively getting half of a $60 game for $50. Get out of here with that shit.

          • ethan boone

            Last gen rules the only reason I got ps4 batman that is it otherwise fuck New gen

          • ethan boone

            I wish they remade ps1 and ps1 disk we’re blu ray that would be epic

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            Haha yes that would be awesome

          • actishit

            how come battlefield can add so many guns even on last gen ? you just buy the crap activision tells you

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It’s fact. Battlefield 4 is different. It’s a game meant to have a lot of guns and they have to do a lot to put it on last gen.

          • Aaron Diekhoff

            Dude have you played AW on last gen? It crashes a lot when playing with friends. AW is pushing the consoles to its limits so please know what your frickin talking about before you pipe up. If CoD added another gun for last gen it would reck it so we don’t get them on current gen either! When AW came out it ran fine on last gen. As more dlc came out it started crashing. So they take dlc guns out of dlc 3 & 4 problem solved right? Therefore giving current gen less content and holding it back!

          • William

            You’re ignorant lol. The games are developed completely different from last gen to current gen. No one is being held back, the shit quality and graphics on a 360 doesn’t effect the graphics on xb1 does it? The fact that you guys get shit 360players don’t also get things way before hand when it comes to dlc. Last gen is not holding you back, you’re useing that as an excuse to feel superior, and to complain that the companies who make CoD games have not made a big change in YEARS! Get over it yo, i love CoD maybe a bit too much. But they’re all the same, I got to prestige 11 in 1 week of -in game play time- after release(CoD AW), and was rank 217 in the world on my overall leaderboards the last time i got online a few months ago. But you wanna hear the real truth? If anything is being held back it would be us PC gamers being held back by all the trash ass consoles.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Says the ignorant one. Why defend last gen, but fanboy over PC?

          • William

            Because they are still a viable source of gaming for some people, just like your precious current gen. Also I defend last gen consoles because they deserve to still be respected. Without last gen consoles you wouldn’t have an xbox one or ps4 you moron lol and I am the ignorant one now? Yet you can’t see simple reasoning to the fact that last gen consoles literally have no impact on current gen and refuse to stop being such a current gen “fanboy”( I guess that’s a insult again? I thought it was 2015). But how am I being a fanboy for pc? EVERYONE knows they are better, it is literally a fact that pc gaming is better, and you can’t say “Ohh well I don’t like playing games with a M&K Booohoo ;(” 90% of games on pc have controller support. Pc’s were the first thing to have gaming on it as they ARE the basis to your feeble console. It’s sad to say I can spend the 500 to get a pc with better graphics(3GB VRAM on my Graphics card), 2x the Ram(Currently 24gb), and a better processor that runs stock 4.0ghz or 5.1ghz with Overclocking. Hmmmm I think I’d go with my pc

          • Robert

            Plus a case, Motherboard, power unit oh and a liquid cooling solution for that over clocking and windows (steam OS is by no means ready yet) you are looking at more than £500 for that setup.

          • Faith Miranda

            I do agree with you though 100% that’s bullshit just because not everyone has 400 to just upgrade to a next gen console. Old gen is not holding back and capable to still be reliable. We all know ghosts 2 or even black ops 4 whatever’s is next will only be for next gen consoles and that’s bull shit. the one thing you guys are right about is that there money whores because there making all of us last gen suffer in the future if we don’t upgrade. On top of that buy all your games back again. but there little minor as they say “set back” is screwing them over? aren’t us average people who don’t have 400 dollars to upgrade and are going to not be able to play next future cod games the real ones that’ are screwed here

          • Robert

            Different developer but even CD project Red agreed that they were held back by current gen consoles, but did also admit that without consoles there wouldn’t be a budget for the game. The same is true for most triple A games. Developing for a single platform be it PC or console isn’t financially viable in most cases.

          • Abraham Sanchez

            This is stupid because beenox and mercenary are creating the game so the old-gen wouldnt hold back the new-gen they stated that they are only focusing on ps4,xbox1,and pc like cant u ppl read

          • last gen

            Its good to put it on last gen you get more money by puttingit out oon more platforms and when last gen was new you did not have a problem with the ps3 or Xbox 360 but now you do hahah I tell you

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It doesn’t matter if they get more money from last gen, how does that benefit my experience? In fact, putting it on last gen ruins the experience. If you buy last gen, you get less content. I repeat: YOU GET LESS CONTENT. You pay the same amount of money for less? Great logic, kiddo.

          • All_Around_7_11

            Iook at destiny retard, that games bigger than any call of duty, its an excuse to get us to buy the latest gen consoles. Last gen is not holding, current gen back. They jus made deals with sony and microsoft to lessin the experience for last gen to get people to buy current. Memory isnt a problem my ps3 has a terribite of memory. If the only games being “held back” is call of duty then they’re jus making excuses to get more money u retard

          • Aaron Diekhoff

            Didn’t you state how last gen is holding cod back? A more limited selection of guns so less content for current gen I use both ae4 and ohm both very powerful and fun guns. The weapon restrictions are obvious but what about map compensations and movement compensations where it is not so obvious that they are cutting corners? Even if we don’t use the guns it’s still nice to have the options. Idiot you can’t use that as an argument? even if we don’t use it we are still getting more content and it is nice to have the option

          • Mark

            My “shitty logic” is what Highmoon Studios officaily said. Comparing CoD and Battlefield like their identical is shitty logic.

          • guy

            Then Highmoon Studios has some shitty logic then, you’re still getting the same end product so what’s the difference. COD and Battlefield are not identical cause EA actually puts a huge amount of content in BF.

          • Aaron Diekhoff

            Once they start making true next gen it will be the same quality project. During the three years of transition it is not! No matter how much they say it won’t be affected by last gen it will be. They always have to compensate for last gen to make sure they don’t make the next gen stuff game breaking for last gen to the point that they can’t port it and dumb it down enough. Fine if you want to have a transition year but wtf? We are almost halfway though the current gens life and I’m still playing games held back by last gen. Activision I can’t wait for CoD to die! Besides zombies, zombies are cool only because I don’t have to give them $110 every year to play zombies. It’s only every 3 years

        • hungryandrew

          Treyarch are focusing on current gen, Beenox and Mercenary Technologyare making it for ps3 and 360 can you comprehend what you’ve read?

          • Mark

            Yes, as surprising as it may be, I can infact read. Advanced Warfare had DLC weapons in DLC1 and DLC2. DLC3 which came out just after Royalty variants and SAC1.5 variants did not have a DLC weapon. Highmoon studios said that last gen consoles could not handle more variants. This supports the theory that last gen holds back next gen because of there being no DLC weapon in DLC3.

          • WhiskeyDick

            Did you forget the free m1 irons? The community complains there’s never anything for free, now you’re complaining that you didn’t have to pay for the new weapon? I cannot ever make sense of the cod community

          • Mark

            I’m not complaining that I can’t buy a new weapon, I was stating the theory that because last gen couldn’t handle another DLC weapon, weather it be paid or free, it was also not added to current gen. If DLC3 came out before the M1 Irons I’d suspect DLC3 wouldn’t have a weapon yo keep that one open slot for a free one.

          • donovan

            Why Treyarch focusing only on current gen and they are using the iw engine that made black ops 2 which is a late gen console game

      • Or which they could, but won’t, is offer different dlc to the older consoles.

      • William

        So how in the world does current gen get held back by last gen consoles?? Completely different companies develop the games on the different gen consoles. The multiplayer on last gen literally does nothing to the multiplayer for current gen.

        • Urmgurdlol

          No, you are wrong, Treyarch develops the game, then hands it over to the other companies saying: Make this works on last gen consoles. The other companies only make a copy to run on the last gen. This is why things are being held back, unless tryarch decides to go all out this year and deny many things to last gen that are only available on current gen. I had a Ps3, it worked well for the time I used it, but now I have a PC, and I see why it is 10 times better than any “console.”

        • Urmgurdlol

          I’m glad at least Dark Souls III this year isn’t going to be on last gen.

      • Venomous Bite10

        Then y is it that battlefield games have almost ten guns in there dlc map packs but call of duty cant that makes you wrong 100% because pc only can do what PS3 and Xbox 360 can do on graphics and all because not everyone can afford alien ware and crap thats over priced!!!!!!

      • Branden

        It dosent matter about new or old gen not evry person in this world can afford a new gen its bullshit that this sorry ass company’s can’t put the same shit in as they did on ps4 and xbox one its all bull shit

    • Nerf Guy

      Chill out man, this is the last game they’re doing for Old Gen Call of Duty 2016 won’t be on last gen.

    • Tyler Perlenfein

      @Mark If you knew anything about how consoles and companies work you would understand. First of all companies are REQUIRED to support last-gen 3 years after the launch of next-gen (now called current-gen) that was the deal. Also it is really hard to just drop last-gen when only 8 million people are on each next-gen console and over 35 million pepole are on each of the last-gen consoles, which is a huge marginal difference.

      • jordanxxxbrookes

        He doesn’t care about the huge money the company would lose nor more importantly the millions of players who can’t get current gen yet for whatever reason. He only cares about his own selfish needs and thinks current gen being gone is really going to make COD any better.

        COD is the most selfish, immature(regardless of age), transparent group of gamers in gaming. They only care about making sure they maintain kd, anyone with higher kd is a “tryhard”, every gun the enemy uses is “overpowered” and last gen is somehow holding them back. Even if last gen goes away they’ll still bitch about the game anyway. So why lose millions of sales from last gen gamers just to ingratiate yourself with current gen guys that will bitch as soon as the BETA is released.

      • All companies are required to support last gen for 3 years? Then how do you explain the games that aren’t on last gen?

        • Tyler Perlenfein

          The companies are listening to the fans who think last gen is holding back current gen.

    • YEP. PLEASE don’t affect the GOOD version of the game. The older consoles are for the previously released cods.

    • Xx_COLSEY_xX

      On the other hand this is excellent news for those who still plays old-gen AKA me. Therefore there is no need to upgrade to a PS4 this year. For those who is pissed off because BO3 is coming to old-gen, I’m sorry but you know what activision are like. Money grabbing [email protected] But hey it’s business, it’s all about making money.

      • shadowguy14

        Just remember, it really won’t be the same game. Some features are being taken because they’re not supported. I don’t even want to know what the graphics will look like.

    • Brenden Lewis

      It’s stated that Treyarch is working exclusively on current-gen systems and PC, and there will be different features between the generations as the last-generation can’t handle many of the new features.

      Activision is getting a secondary company to port the game to last-gen; most likely for the potential buyers. However, I would guess that it won’t affect the current-gen build, as treyarch isn’t restricting anything.

    • XxReaperSpawnxX

      Shut the f*** up people still play games on those consoles if u don’t like the suck my balls it’s a way to make more money

      • Mark

        Thank you for your constructive criticism. It has been noted.

    • Make above is dumb ad

      You are stupid last gen gets every mode new gen gets they have to do that its requirment they can’t put all 3 modes in ps4 and not in PS3 I think it’s funny how people say ps4 is sooooo good and talks shit about PS3 yet ps4 is just the same thing with a little graphic upgrade a little more space different dashboard that kinda copies Xbox, different controller, etc a ps4 has no BIG difference they’re both PS’s they worked the same way to put out an image and for you to communicate and play with people and by yourself you dumb fuck

    • Kalmengor

      Some people can’t afford new gen.

    • John Rodriguez

      Its not and they changed it to multi player and zombies for last Gen activision is still making a shit load of money from older cods that were made or d ps3 and 360 and it’s been proven that they’ll make shit ton more if they make it for last Gen because that has been proven with waw cuz they released it for d ps2 when it came out in 08 so stop fucking hatin

    • Ugly Mark

      Cause ur mad

  • At least it’s not done by High Moon Studios… Was hoping for a current gen game only though, the last gen is limiting what they can do with the game :s

    • LovekillerX

      Graphics didn’t look so great and I thought that there had to be old gen versions too.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        They look better than AW, actually.

          Lol it doesn’t look better than AW. Look at AW’s reveal trailer GAMEPLAY parts and compare it to Black Ops 3 reveal trailer and you can see the huge difference.

          • RdJokr

            Looks about the same to me. Though, the game is still at pre-alpha stage, so Treyarch still has time to polish the graphics.

          • LovekillerX

            I hope they can achieve better graphics. I’m not after graphics but I want to see what my next gen console (current gen actually…) can do compared to previous consoles. Right now I think current gen haven’t achieved yet it’s “glory”.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            For sure the textures and AA are superior.

          • RdJokr

            That I can agree on. But I’m talking about the general aesthetic, as well as the special effects.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The aesthetics look better in BO3 to me, but we’ll see… perhaps AW has better lighting and such.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            BO3 has less jaggies, better textures, and better character models.

          • LovekillerX

            Those face models look like rubber to me and I have seen better for example in AW. But I guess that is about taste. Anyway not looking so great as I thought.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Actually, the faces are higher res (better textures).

          • LovekillerX

            Not for me. Those face models look like “rubber”…

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            AW looked rubbery to me.

          • LovekillerX

            Compare.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The BO3 one is cutscene, I think. The AW one I believe is gold footage.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]
          • Daniel

            AW character models are infinitely superior

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Not at all. It might have slightly superior lighting, but Black Ops 3 has better models, at least in Multiplayer.

          • Daniel

            AW has the best possible graphics a 60FPS game can handle

    • RdJokr

      At this point, I don’t think those two devs will do a better job than High Moon.

      • Not familiar with them, literally googling right now lol.

        • RdJokr

          I think Beenox did the Spider-Man games, but I have literally never heard of Mercenary Technology till now. Just did a Google search, and there’s not much relevant work in their portfolio. Their most notable work is porting Transformer: Fall of Cybertron to PC.

          Welp, can’t wait for Beenox’s twitter page to be filled with complaints this year. At least their twitter is active, unlike High Moon’s.

  • RdJokr

    Oh boy… I’m not familiar with how Beenox and Mercenary do things, but people better get ready for another shit port like AW. Crap graphics, limited features, constant bugs post-launch, etc…

      Well if I would own a company, I would try to maximize my income right? Nothing wrong about that. But I know that people on old gen will suffer a lot.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        They should have announced it in April.

        • Michel

          Yup, everybody got so hyped for it being next gen only.
          And after the Next Gen only hype was over they announced that it wasn’t the case.

      • RdJokr

        Yeah, because that worked out so well with AW.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          About 60-40 split, I believe. Roughly 8-10 mil on current gen, 8 mil or so on last gen. 18 mil sold total.

      • You know, you can sometimes do good decisions for the fans rather than just milk money. They’d still make lots of money

        • LovekillerX

          Capitalism my friend. This is how it works.

          • Well it doesn’t always have to work like that, companies can be good sometimes too, so Idk why people expect/want them to make as much money as possible

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The beta will probably halve the sales.

          • SoulTaker

            Basically every company wants money my friend you’d have to be in the business world to understand if they end up making a good profit from this old gen game they’ll do it again with I.W COD game. Also you’re speaking like this is not the same company who put Supply Drops up for sale it’s never truly for the fans most of the time as all companies want more money especially with games being more expensive to make compared to 10-15 years ago so every cent counts sadly.

          • I know they want to make profit… But there is a difference between milking on absolutely everything and making lots of profit. I’m talking about what LovekillerX said

            “Well if I would own a company, I would try to maximize my income right?”

            No, I wouldn’t maximize it to the ABSOLUTELY maximum.

          • SoulTaker

            Money changes peoples thoughts if you were a business man you might actually end up doing that again money changes peoples thoughts. Not trying to disrespect you or anything but I believe if you were a boss of a big CEO money in the end would make you do the same thing. I’m pretty sure if money changed me I’d probably do it but without being in that point of view I’d agree with you.

          • RdJokr

            Eventually they’re gonna have to drop support for last gen anyway. And I don’t think IW would want their next game to be a Ghosts 2, literally and figuratively.

          • SoulTaker

            Sooner or later they’ll move on with the times like Bethesda and Fallout , but if people keep proving that last gen is still profitable they’ll continue to do it as they get to choose if it’s ported or not. I saw this coming from a mile away as Vondahaar even kind of hinted saying “Treyarch is only working on the PC, Xbox and PS4 version”.

        • jordanxxxbrookes

          You act like there are only 50,000 people on last gen. There are far more people with last gen. So I don’t get your point. They should do “the fans” a favor by ditching last gen? What about millions of fans on last gen, just say, “eff you get a new console.”? What about the fans on PC that keep getting lesser versions with limited support. Do you care about those fans? No of course not. So don’t play the fan service argument. They do care about money, but caring about that money also indirectly helps the fans that can’t upgrade yet. Which are far more than you think.

          • RdJokr

            “They do care about money, but caring about that money also indirectly helps the fans that can’t upgrade yet.”

            How long has it been since the X1 and the PS4 came out now? Over 2 years now. You have had so much time to save up money to buy either one of these consoles. There is no excuse for this. And don’t say you’re broke, because if you are, then you should spend that $60 on something else rather than buying this game on last gen.

          • Guest

            So in your opinion I shouldn’t be able to play new games that other people buy me as gifts on my ps3? I have plenty of bills that are way more important than upgrading to a ps4 so I dont. Your arrogance/ sense of entitlement is a prime example of why society is slowly going to hell.

          • RdJokr

            Your bills are not my concern. I’m just telling you that the $60 that you (or whoever that’s going to gift you) plan to spend on this game should be spent somewhere else. The experience on last gen is so watered down, it’s not worth the price.

            If you have played AW on PS3, you would know how fucked up it is right now. Without Treyarch paying proper attention to last gen, PS3 and X360 will be fucked over even harder on BO3 than on AW. If you want a smooth gaming experience, then do yourself a favor and upgrade.

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            But why buy a current-gen console when an old-gen console can play the same games. E.G: Battlefield 4, Battlefield Hardline, FIFA 15, Call Of Duty Advanced Warfare, Call Of Duty Black Ops 3 etc. I’m not paying £300 just for a console that does the same thing as the console I already have. I’m not paying £300 just for an upgrade just for the graphics. I’m happy for what I’ve got.

          • RdJokr

            “I’m not paying £300 just for a console that does the same thing as the console I already have.”
            Really now? Can you play Ground War on AW on last gen? Did you guys get the Royalty guns and the single SAC3 variants? Did you guys get updates and fixes on time as with the current gen consoles and PC? Did you guys get a smooth experience without freezing and crashing everywhere?

            I’m just speaking for the console players who have suffered this year from High Moon’s attempt at bringing AW to last gen. If you want to risk suffering the same fate with BO3 this year, be my guest. It doesn’t bother me one bit, since I’m a PC player.

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            I really don’t care if we don’t have ground war. I don’t care if we didn’t get the royalty guns. To be fair, the Tiki camo is what I prefer. And sac 1.5 is probably shit anyway. So really I’m not missing much. I don’t need shitty little features to enjoy the game. Royalty gun variants is cheap. Just applying a royalty purple camo on an elite guns. Ground war is three extra people on each team and I’m not even going to start on the sac 1.5. I wouldn’t be surprised if the do a XMG singular. Or even do a 6 round burst weapon.

          • RdJokr

            So I take it you enjoy the constant freezing and crashing, and literally zero support from High Moon then?

          • PandaMan

            This year there are so many games being released to current gen only. The companies don’t give a rats ass if the people don’t like it. They know that it’s time to switch. Unless you want to be stuck playing CoD that will never upgrade to current gen, it’s time to upgrade. If you get left behind, grow up. You’ve had three years to save. Take six years if you need to.

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            Grow up? really? Coming from you who’s telling me to upgrade. I’ve never had 3 years to upgrade because I never intended to upgrade in the first place. So STFU and go beg your mom and dad to buy you BO3

          • PandaMan

            I’m not saying you have to upgrade. I’m just saying that so many franchises are moving on and CoD is stuck here. Eventually they’re gonna move on, and people are gonna be left behind.

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            I’m not buying a PS4 just yet because I’m happy with my PS3 at the moment. I’m not upgrading until they stop making CoD and Battlefield on PS3. Which in my opinion the next CoD after BO3 will be current-gen only and the next Battlefield game will be 100% current-gen only.

          • PandaMan

            But it’s time to switch! It’s been ten years since the old gen launched. It’s been three since current launched. It’s time! When are people finally going to say that it’s time to upgrade? In 5 years when the next gen consoles are teased? If we keep allowing for last gen to get these games then there will never be a console shift. Look at all the games that are currently current gen only. Battlefront, FO4, Arkham Knight, AC Syndicate. So many great games being brought to CURRENT GEN ONLY! Time to switch. Period

      • idkwhatmynameis

        its funny how people want these companies to act like some non profit charity or something. clearly dont understand the concept of big business. and if you have a current gen and your getting treyarchs full game, why complain? last gen will appreciate having a new cod and current gen should just stfu with the money whoring nonsense and complaining about how someone elses graphics will look kuz it doesnt affect them one bit.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          That doesn’t excuse anti-consumer decisions. They aren’t just talking graphics, they’re talking overall features and content, thanks to the current gen’s RAM, as well as bigger levels and crisper detail.

          Why complain? Because this hinders the amount of features and content, last gen players had a year and a half to invest. Maybe you should stop being a fanboy that excuses everything. Or, maybe you’re a troll?

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Here you go again accusing someone of being a “fanboy” simply because they said something contrary to what you and “millions of others” like you would want to believe. How the fuck is making a game on last gen anti consumerism at all? Technically speaking wouldn’t telling last gen customers that they had, “a year and a half to invest in current gen” be anti consumerism? Again stop trying to make your superficial needs anything more than what they are. You are one of those who thinks that if COD stops making last gen games that somehow current gen COD is going to be Jesus himself.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Stop telling me what to do, you worthless troll. And the fact that someone is biased is what makes them a fanboy. I’m not biased because I still own past generation systems.

            You’re an idiot. You take everything I say out of context. Either that or you don’t understand what I’m saying. How about you think of an actual reply instead of being an immature troll?

            It’s anti-consumer because they’re thinking about profit instead of maximum content.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            What does you owning last gen consoles got to do with anything? How is owning a last gen console making you any less biased anyway? It’s not like you can get more than $70 and a medium pizza for a last gen console so why not keep it. I wasn’t referring to bias against last gen consoles, I meant you have an opinion and instead of stating that, you make sure to act like “millions” of others feel that way or get into economics or some other bs to help make your opinion stronger and hide your true reasoning….Just so you know owning more than one thing doesn’t make someone incapable of bias. Bias isn’t defined by only having one thing ex: owning an Apple and Samsung smartphone doesn’t make someone incapable of being biased towards one product especially if one of those products are 5+ years older than the other….You’re a bitch. Just say you wanna justify your new console purchase and that you want noobs to come back for you to slay. Everything else added to those statements is pure bullshit.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’m biased? I’M biased? You lost all credibility, in fact, your first reply did the trick. Bye kid

          • Guest

            Wow a whole year and a half to save. Not like my mortgage is paid over 30 years and other bills show up everyday. Maybe saving your milk money allowed you to get one but some of us have real bills and responsibilities that are more important than a ps4 or xbox.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I guess you don’t know what investing is?

          • PandaMan

            Dude, go online. Get on FB. I sold my PS3 for $150 because it’s still worth it. The consoles aren’t broken, they’re just outdated. You last gen people have 10 CoD games you can play. Play those while current gen moves ahead

    • Mick

      Haha same. I’ve never heard of this Beenox company before. But I think Mercenary worked on the Dead Island series if I’m not mistaken (don’t quote me on that). I bet it’s gonna be a shitter port than AW’s tbh.

    • Beenox are the guys who work on the Spider-Man games (Spider-Man 3, Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2). I have nothing on Mercenary so there is some hope left. But with Neenox on board last-gen fuckers are going to get a big kick in d’s nuts! Just check they’re latest game Amazing Spider-Man 2 and see how talented they are. ?

  • Drasadex

    Well then, that kinda sucks.

    Hopefully current-gen isn’t held back too much.

    • Keshav Bhat

      It won’t be! As stated, there’s gonna be feature differences and things changed on last-gen that the current-gen can only support.

      • guest

        its still gonna be held back buddy

        • Guest

          How? The game hasn’t even come out yet.

      • If that were true, Gun DLC would be in every DLC

        • RdJokr

          Technically it is with AW. 4 DLC guns, although at least one is free.

          • Supremacy still needed a gun, if you pay the same price as the 2 previous, you should get the same amount of things. Including the best part (Gun)

      • Brandalf

        It will still hold the game back from it’s peak potential. Even if 3arch is not directly involved with developing the last-gen versions they will have been told to try to make sure as many things they implement as possible will be capable of being “downscaled” for last-gen.

        They will only be allowed to implement a handful of things that only current-gen+PC can handle; why is that? Because the more features the current-gen+PC versions feature that last-gen can’t means the less potential sales the last-gen versions will have.

        • Daniel

          Less gun dlc
          Smaller zombie maps
          Worst graphics
          That is what last gen is making us current gen users suffer

          • Brandalf

            I agree with less gun DLC and smaller maps but worse graphics isn’t quite right. Graphics are highly and easily scalable based on hardware though; so that’s not really true. The PC platform is a perfect example of how scalable graphics can be.

          • Tricky VIk

            “Pfft, don’t act like last gen are some kind of second rate citizens my friend, it’s not right, need to understand come can’t afford it or don’t want to, that’s how the world will be, have a nice day.”

          • Thatlazykid

            Can’t afford it because u gotta be smart enough to not waste your money on unnecessary things so save money and be patient

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Yeah because $400 consoles are a necessary evil. STFU. Besides the fact assuming you do have disponsible income $400 isn’t enough money to act as if you’re some elitist. You sound like someone looking down on a 08 Honda Accord when you only have a 2011 Toyota Camry. Chillax buying a current gen console doesn’t make CFO of Apple or something.

          • Tricky VIk

            Never played MW3 on the Wii, what’s the difference between the Wii version with the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions?

          • crappy graphics, yuri flashbacks are cutscenes, cant change the red dot sight optics, no spec ops only survival, 30 fps, 10 players max in mp

        • Keshav Bhat

          Not that big of a difference. It will be the same core game with MP, Zombies, and Campaign, but the features within each may differ due to hardware restrictions. Like how campaign doesn’t have four player support on last-gen.

          • JoZer805g

            Ok

        • MichiganerE

          Actually, BRO and CoD 2 are both different games, not different versions of the same game.

          • JoZer805g

            That’s what I am saying if Black Ops III on last gen will be completely different from the current gen versions.

          • MichiganerE

            I know that, i’m just replying because of what you said about BRO and CoD 2 being the same game. They’re not whatsoever, they’re both different games that have no connections and aren’t different versions of the same game at all. CoD 2 is a main CoD game while BRO is a spin-off title.

  • Money Boy

    NO.

  • ScOott

    Sounds like these are doing it, because their cheaper than highmoon.. Good luck old gen

  • Come on guys this was obvious… as if they would give up on the profit they can make with current gen

  • Alireza888

    Well fuck!

  • This was the worst move that Treyarch has ever done. I hope the game not only looks like a Nintendo Wii game, but I hope it’s just as broken as AW’s last gen version.

    I mean seriously, Treyarch. Have you NOT learned that outdated hardware inhibits the design of future platforms? Have you NOT heard about how broken the last gen versions of AW were? It’s called the “outdated hardware ceiling”. Stop supporting outdated hardware. If people complain about last gen not being supported, tough luck. Get a new console.

    • itsactivision

      Its not treyarch, its activision. Also why do you think they just announced it, seems treyarch was probably fighting tooth and nail woth activision to not bring it to ps3 and 360.

    • sdffsdfads

      it wasnt Treyarchs decision you know that right?
      Activision only cares about money, why else do you think they make micro dlc on a AAA game

    • SoulTaker

      You do know that Treyarch has absolutely no word in this right??? Activision controls what happens with COD if they want Treyarch to bark Treyarch will bark. Like Vondahaar said these choices are way above his pay grade.

    • ben wills

      When you blame 3arc for this, you pretty much confirm you have no idea what you’re talking about. Moron.

  • GG Activision

  • Activi$on $uck

    RIP COD. Yet another game which is going to be held back by the old gen. Activision always pride sales over quality and that’s why the franchise has been dying last few years and the games getting progressively worse. I can now see why BO3 looked so bad in the trailer and the finished article wont be much better so don’t gimme that cheap ‘it’s an alpha’ excuse.

    So not only is COD still using an engine from 2005; we’ve still gotta suffer with outdated and garbage technology on the current gen. Ghosts and AW sold abysmally so I really don’t know why they’re bothering but every cent counts in Activision’s eyes. This game is going to be an utter shambles when compared to the true current gen titles that will dominate E3. Shame they don’t have the ethics CDPR have with The Witcher 3 – that’s how you make a proper videogame.

    • jooker-jr

      K.

  • SoulTaker

    Not surprised like I’ve said if there is some good money to be made off of doing it for last gen they will do it come on people this is Activision if you’re surprised they are doing this where have you been the last few years? Also if you end up buying this don’t be surprised if you don’t get any good support this year like HMS did for last gen A.W.

    As a side note now all of you guys at least know how it feels for PC gamers when old gen was holding back PC for a number of games.

  • Daniel

    Fucking BULLSHIT
    These 10 year old consoles are holding current gen again? 4 the third consecutive time with cod

    • Tricky VIk

      “Nothing holding it back my friend.”

  • Guywithbrains

    I wasn’t surprised at all. Shinobi told this to us a long time ago.

    Now I understand a little bit better why graphics aren’t “current gen” level. But still AW looks better >>>in my opinion<<<.

    Also my opinion about new villain. Well he doesn't look so "badass" or great than earlier villains but acting is the most important part. Fingers crossed I guess.

  • I think some of you owe shinobi602 an apology and time for you to eat some crow 😛

    • Guywithbrains

      He has been right about so many Black Ops 3 related things but also about other games like Assassin’s Creed Unity co-op mode, Dragon Age: Inquisition Jaws of Hakkon DLC release date, Halo: Master Chief collection… list goes on.

      But hey maybe he just “guesses” and uses “pure logic” with these things… lol’d.

      • Exactly. Not sure why people thought he was some random person BSing – denial or what??

    This better not hold back black ops 3 potentially like why did I buy a ps4 when all the games I play can be bought on a system I had since 2009 and came out in 2006

    GOOD LUCK Old Gen Guys,,,

  • Ryan

    Thank the heavens and fuck everyone who says it old next gen back

  • Navv

    Those saying it’ll hold back next gen please give it a rest. MW2 was the last decent CoD in my opinion and that had barely anything in comparison to the newer games. Even CoD4 is more enjoyable and that has even less. If you’re really going to be that petty just don’t buy it, nobody cares.

    • Legend-Killer

      Current Gen*

      • Navv

        what?

        • GinsuVictim

          Next gen hasn’t been next gen since last gen was the current gen.
          Make sense?

          • Navv

            Well whatever, point still stands

          • GinsuVictim

            I agree. I was just messing with you based on what that other guy said.

          • Navv

            Aha, all good man

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      Exactly. They just like to bitch, but they’ll still buy it. COD4, BO2, MW2 and even MW3 are better games than Ghosts or AW on current gen. They are very petty. All Activision has done with current gen is find more ways to generate revenue through DLCs, Microtransactions, skins and worst of all the Supply Drop microtransactions. I guess if last gen wasn’t around they wouldn’t have done those things and the games would’ve been so much better last two years.

  • UGH

    YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG IDIOTS! FUCKING WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS!

  • Melchor

    In my opinion this is a step back for game developing, let the last gen die already.

    • ben wills

      Remember the Wii had the power of a PS2 and yet BO1/MW3 etc were still ported to it. The Wii didn’t hold back those games development, though.

      Also, did you really ever think this wasn’t going to happen? At the most recent check up, Bone sold 12 mil, PS4 sold 20. That’s 32 mil. CoD used to come close to selling that in total, which means to even have a hope of achieving the numbers they want they’d have to have a higher attach rate than has ever been seen before (by well over double lol). This is probably the year that this gen outsells last gen, but they’d lose a TON of sales not going back.

  • IRON MONST3R 01

    Ok for the ones who are like it’s holding next gen back iam pretty sure u would be bummed out like most People like me who are Stuck on the 360 because we don’t have 620$ to blow on a Xbox and a few games when bills are more important and also another thing take a chill pill yall

    • GinsuVictim

      Who’s stuck on 360? I just flat out don’t want the new systems yet.

      • Tricky VIk

        “Well, I want a PS4, but no money yet.”

        • GinsuVictim

          The cancellation of Silent Hills and The Last Guardian made me not want one yet.

          • Tricky VIk

            “They cancelled Silent Hills?!” ;c

          • GinsuVictim

            Where have you been?

          • Tricky VIk

            “Like I said, it’s been a while.”

          • GinsuVictim

            Not sure where you said that, but ok.

          • Tricky VIk

            “It’s up there if you have your posts to Newest, but yeah, I do want a current gen console.”

    • Thatlazykid

      You have to be smart dude! Dont blow your money on unnecessary things if u want a next-gen console or also known as saving money! It take about less than a year to save enough money for a next gen console start by saving 3-4 dollars each day but be patient enough to wait!!

      • GinsuVictim

        “start by saving 3-4 dollars each day”

        That’s $90 to $120 per month. Not everyone is in a financial situation that allows them to set that much aside. They have bigger concerns.

        • Thatlazykid

          Ok then 2-3 dollars each day but if u really really want a next gen console save money thats it! Took me about 8-10 months to save enough money for a next gen console

          • GinsuVictim

            That’s because you’re a lazy kid.

          • Thatlazykid

            But smart 🙂
            And i believe you’re more lazy than me xD

          • GinsuVictim

            I’m at work right now getting paid to do this….and not much else.

          • GinsuVictim

            I have no interest in next gen, but if I told my wife, “Hey, I saved up enough money to buy a new console,” she would show me everything else around the house that that money could be better used for.

    where you at bradyalucard?! talkin all that shit, trying to talk down to people, going into other articles claiming YOU KNEW what was right and the gameinformer story was a mistake. LMFAO YOU WERE WRONG BITCH. YOU EVEN SAID DRIFT0R CONFIRMED IT LIKE HES SOME GOD, WHEN ALL HE DID WAS RETWEET A STATEMENT FROM CI SAYING IT HASNT BEEN CONFIRMED. YOU ARE A JOKE DUDE.got enough balls to talk shit online behind those keys but i bet you wont say a damn thing about being 1000% wrong, youll just keep your little act/routine going and pretend like it never happened. SCRUB ASS DUDE

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      I’ll tell you where he is. Somewhere saying that SBMM is causing cancer instead of admitting that he is just a little bitch who needs to beat up on noobs to maintain his probably shitty kd anyway. If not that, he’s somewhere acting as if COD was going to be some microtransaction free, 50+ mp map with dedicated servers and free blow jobs if it wasn’t for last gen….He wants to play noobs, and he wants to justify his current gen purchase. Everything else he says is bs to justify his selfish needs.

      • idkwhatmynameis

        dude likes being able to talk down to people when its convenient but when karma comes around hes got no nuts and calls people fanboys or trolls. it never fails. he can give but cant take bs, biggest coward ive ever come across.
        and you see how he can respond to every other comment EXCEPT the one where the focus is his nonsense

        • jordanxxxbrookes

          Good point! Yeah he tries to take his opinion, pretend that millions of others feel the same and that COD will be doomed to hell for doing what he doesn’t like and the minute you disagree with him you’re somehow a fanboy. Like how is just talking shit and being on COD articles any better than what an actual fanboy does? An actual fanboy doesn’t dedicate as much time or energy the way he does. Yes he has just skipped over the article calling him out….I’m sure his comeback would’ve been BILLIONS of people agreed with him and that Activision’s headquarters will collapse due to this. I’m sure when he give girls pills at night he claims it’s to keep them regular as opposed to just pulling a Bill Cosby

  • Michael:GodOfEWN

    It’s time to let last gen die guys. With E3 not that far away there’s gonna be a shit load of games for current gen.

  • Brad

    Not only is this going to hold current gen back, it will completely divide the players again. For a game to be successful the player base must be on 2-3 systems at max, which is how all successful cods in the past were from cod4-bo2, when everyone played on 360 or PS3. Bo3 will just be another year of Activision hiding the player counts because they will be embarrassingly low. Really not happy with this announcement

    • GinsuVictim

      It’s a completely different version. It’s holding back nothing.

      • Real Nigga Doffy

        At most its holding back player count. But that’s about it. People just like to complain…

        • Brad

          High player count=more people to play with=better connections. Plus, I want to know how many people are playing each game mode.

          • GinsuVictim

            Tons of people aren’t moving on to current gen, so the numbers won’t be that different anyway.

          • Brad

            They’ve had nearly 2 years and the consoles aren’t that expensive anymore there’s tons of deals plus if bo3 wasn’t coming out for the old systems tons of people would upgrade just to play it. Now they won’t upgrade.

          • GinsuVictim

            That doesn’t matter. A lot of people have no interest in the new consoles.

          • Real Nigga Doffy

            But the thing is, BO3 alone shouldn’t be an incentive for someone to upgrade to current gen. Alot of the reason most people wont upgrade is because most games are remasters or just really uninteresting.

          • Brad

            Cod tops sales charts every single year, it is still by far the biggest game currently. If a game like this doesn’t make it for old systems a lot of people would upgrade just to play cod. Some people don’t care about any game but cod.

          • GinsuVictim

            Did you see how well the 360 version of AW sold?

          • Brad

            No I didn’t. I’d assume more people bought AW for next gen consoles.

          • GinsuVictim

            They did quite well. Here’s the December sales, where 360 led all console versions
            http://charlieintel.com/2015/01/16/call-duty-advanced-warfare-best-selling-title-us-december-2014/

  • Real Nigga Doffy

    There’s millions in the last gen market. Of course we all know the game is gonna look like Minecraft with guns, but that’s not gonna stop people from still getting it.

  • Ryumoau

    I was hoping it would remain next gen only but i guess this is fine too since i can probably get the ps3 version free if i go digital for the ps4 version. I love the idea of two seperate trophy lists. lol

  • LLORT

    I wonder if the launch trailer was taken from the 360 version because that looked awful especially compared to Advanced Warfare. I can’t believe people still play cod on the old gen – AW was riddled with hackers before the game was officially released.

    • GinsuVictim

      Obviously not. Why the hell would they tout their new graphics with an old version?

  • Tricky VIk

    “Annnnd, let the hate commence, not in my case, I am glad myself and my old gen comrades can play until we get the chance to upgrade, because that is the main mission, to upgrade, but if we can’t by then, looks like we have something to fall back on.”

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Last gen doesn’t sell as much now that current gen exists.

    • RdJokr

      I, for one, would prefer that you make the transition ASAP, or you will suffer from a bad experience similar to AW on last gen. I do hope that it won’t happen though, for your sake comrade.

      • Tricky VIk

        “The words you offer bring much comfort, sadly, I am very poor, but I’ll do my best to not let that stop me, I will be trying, but if I can’t I at least have something to fall back on, hopefully there’ll be a deal for the last gen comrades such as preordering digitally for last gen and getting it for current gen for free, I know many people will say, oh you should be able to upgrade stop waiting for your parent(s) to buy it for you or get a job, it’s not as easy as that in some places my friends, others do not wish to upgrade just for this game, let every man (and woman) have their own opinion, but without slandering others opinions, and that’s how I feel about that, you know, sometimes I wish I could just make an account and ask a random twitter celebrity for a PS4, and they actually send me one, must be a silly dream huh, and to end this, let’s be glad for you current gen users that last gen is not holding you back, I wish to see no more complaints.”

  • Josh2242

    For everyone calling Activision money whores, it makes perfect sense why they would include old gen. From a business stand point, why would you not widen your market? Activision wants to make as much money as possible, wouldn’t you? That’s the whole point of a business. Old gen console cod increases sales substantially

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      It comes with a cost. More money? Cool! Let’s ruin it for the majority of the sales, the people on current gen. It risks content, features, and detail. A lot of people know that it’s best for business, but awful for moving forward.

      • jordanxxxbrookes

        What makes it bad for business? You lil bitches opinions of this matter has nothing to do with actual dollars. Lots of people like yourself and others here will STILL BUY THE GAME after talking about how current gen guys are so screwed now. So how is it awful moving forward? COD players complain and bluff a lot but they always buy the games and at least 1 DLC per game. So yes there could be millions of current gen players upset that last gen will somehow “hold them back” despite no evidence yet at the end of the day those millions will STILL buy the game anyway. You hate SBMM but your bitch ass is still in soaking in any COD related gossip. Activision knows that you guys will bitch about everything but you’ll still buy the game so they aren’t going to lose not a single sale. Yeah a guy with brand new PS4 is going to say, “man this is still on PS3?, I’m not going to buy the current gen version now”…STFU you superficial little homo.

        • GinsuVictim

          “they always buy the games and at least 1 DLC per game”
          The real people holding Call of Duty back. Buy ’em all or don’t buy any.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Haha. If they bought them all they’d be called fanboys by BradyAlucunt

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Grow up.

          1. It’s bad for business because other companies are moving ahead with a current gen future, whilst Activision makes developers port to last gen again. Tell me, genius, why didn’t they announce this in April?

          2. We still buy the game (hope you know the used market exists so they don’t profit) because we support the franchise. We complain so that we don’t suffer, and so that the game improves to our standard. We have every right to, because we have the right to an opinion, and we put a roof over Activision and the devs’ heads. By we, I mean all of us. No, devs don’t have to if they don’t want to, note that they are aware of SBMM. But that doesn’t mean we all still can’t complain.

          3. Last gen holds everything back. Content requires memory. Do I mean guns? No, everything. Guns, maps, camos, etc. Features such as bigger and better Campaign and Zombies levels and better AI. Graphical and aesthetic fidelity. Just a few out of many examples. Whereas your excuse are sales. K. EA and Ubisoft are moving away from past gen, and none of their major franchises hit a billion dollars in profit annually. Let’s see your pathetic excuse for that. Fanboy.
          4. Yes, I hate SBMM. At least my reasoning is valid, and I have, well, ARGUMENTS.
          5. Which is why I buy Black Ops 3 used for nothing but Zombies.
          5. I have evidence. More than you. And people won’t buy a current gen system if the game I’d still on last gen. Thanks for pointing that fact out.

          Thanks for contribution of holding back gaming, you pretentious fanboy troll. Go bunny hop in Advanced Chorefare.

          • Sentinel

            LMAOO What makes me laugh is the fact that you’re still trying to make a point(s) in which no one gives a fvck… STFU if all you do is buy the game and play it. To later on get on this and b!tch about the game being this or that. Damn, close minded fvcks lol

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You have the weirdest logic.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            I need to grow up yet you’re more concerned with your enjoyment of COD which is why you hate SBMM(contrary to what other bs you add to your opinion). I need to grow up but anyone who opposes you is a fanboy? I need to grow up yet you want millions of gamers who very well may not be able to afford a new console to be in the dark just because your lame ass was probably in line when PS4 came out so now you think if last gen was gone virtual reality or something would be in COD? An actual fanboy would buy every COD, and create and account to discuss COD news and would complain about SBMM on a 7+ month old game. At best YOU sir are the definition of a fanboy(COD) and at worst you are a masochist who enjoys discussing something he hates and bitches about. I have no emotional ties or investment in COD like you seem to. I’ll buy current gen version and hope game is fun. Also I’m not contributing anymore money to COD than you are. Again you still are paying the same $60 all these supposed “fanboys” pay. Only difference is you bitch after paying the money. If you wanted to make a stance you wouldn’t pay at all. You’re howling at the moon like bitches do.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Yes. You need to grow up, because your comments are nothing but insults. What you just said can be reversed and directed right back at you.

    • Kobrah

          • Josh2242

            It’s a minor effect to Activision. To them, your unfortunate circumstances don’t constitute enough reason to change anything

  • iamnotbroke

  • I’ll just leave this pic here.

    • Juses

      K…?

      • Why would they make him play on the PS4, take a picture of it and post it publicly, IF Microsoft had an advertising deal?

        • Guywithbrains

          After this I am starting to believe that this year advertising deal will be different compared to earlier years. Maybe no one gets DLC first which would be win situation for everyone.

        • Mitch

          PS4 is the lead development console for CoD. The exclusivity is a completely different matter. Nobody is forcing him to play on PS4 – it’s just where the code is developed.

          • “PS4 is the lead development console for CoD”
            Source? And if this was the case, then I’d assume Sony would have the DLC deal as well.

          • GinsuVictim

            http://charlieintel.com/2015/04/23/rumor-call-of-duty-exclusivity-deal-moving-over-to-playstation/

            Also, all kinds of evidence lately, from PS4 being the default option on official CoD sites to the upcoming Mountain Dew deal.

          • That didn’t really answer my question… I’m also thinking that the deal is either with Sony or no one has the deal.

          • Mitch

            Once again; you’re getting exclusivity muddled up with the development architecture – it’s two completely different things. Activision use Sony’s hardware dev kits for their developers to create games. Ghosts and AW were built on the PS4. PS4’s hardware isn’t exclusive as it’s off the shelf but it’s the most powerful and easiest to base-code.

          • Ghosts and AW were built on PS4, really? I’ll do some research, because I haven’t heard of that

            Edit: I really don’t think that’s true, or at least Activision hasn’t talked about it.

          • And no, I didn’t get them wrong. He linked the Mountain Dew page which is all about advertising rights, it has nothing to do with the development.

          • Mitch

            Looks like you should do some research on CoD development of the last two years….
            This is very old news indeed. PS4 is the lead development console for Activision and has been for 3 years. All this is readily available in google.

          • I couldn’t find anything official, it’s just everyone quoting the same guy, Pete Dodd. It’s not official, just rumors.

          • Mitch

            There’s been lots of articles on this. Activison has been using the PS4 exclusively for its architecture for development. All these rumours are true and Destiny is another game that proved that http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/03/18/call-of-dutys-lead-platform-switching-to-ps4-digital-game-sales-higher-than-xbox-ones-according-to-insider/

          • That Pete Dodd’s quote is all just rumors (which I believe are true however, don’t get me wrong) so you can’t just say something like that as a fact

  • ghosts sucks

    They should have waited until August or something to announce this. I was afraid that it would be current gen only so I went out and bought an xbox 1. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who did that. If they would have waited im sure there would have been alot more

  • Mick

    Well that’s just retarded. Now old gen will hold us back.

    • GinsuVictim

      How? Remember Big Red One? United Fronts? How about games like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ghostbusters, or any number of games that got Xbox / PS2 / Wii versions that were nothing like 360 / PS3?

      This is the point we’re at now. Current gen will get their proper versions, while last gen will get something close, but possibly completely different.

      • Mick

        Scroll through the comments. People have explained it already.

        • GinsuVictim

          Yeah, I’ve been through them already. They have it wrong.

          • Mick

            What they are saying makes a shit ton of sense to me. I don’t see how they could possibly be wrong with their statements.

          • GinsuVictim

            Like?

  • Bro Dallas

    Oh Boo Hoo for you people crying about future gens getting ruined let me play you a sad song on the world’s smallest violin

  • For Fucks Sakes How Many Times! Here We Go Again! Last-Gen holding us back again with The Main Game content, DLC guns and more extra content. For you cheap bastards out their that say that you can’t afford a new console or that you are not holding us back, Fuck You, Fuck You and get a job you fags you are 18 already, save some money, I don’t care just stop running the True Next-Gen Experience for us already!

    • GinsuVictim

      Completely different release. Quit freaking out.

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      The DLC guns you fucking bitches complain about being overpowered??? Last gen is preventing current gen from adding more extra content like microtransactions or skins for you homos to cry about NOT having to buy?

  • GinsuVictim

    Where were you guys at the end of Xbox / PS2? We’ve been through this. The versions will start to be completely different on last gen than the current gen release, and will not hold back the new game in any way.

    • Mitch

      I have AW on the 360 and One and there wasn’t much of a difference. The old gen isn’t the issue – the core engine is from 2005 and THAT’s the key problem with CoD moving forward as a proper current gen title.

  • Faolan

    Well im annoyed that its also going to be on the 10 year old POS that should have died a while ago. But im more annoyed that the old console is not getting the beta aswell. I find it to be a poor chossce on activistions part to test one console and not the other.
    And to limit the game in such a way? You might aswell not even make the game. I garentee there are a lot of people out there that wont even touch the last gen copy of this game for the fact that they removed aspects of the game.
    Last gen had its run. Let it die and move on.

    • GinsuVictim

      I love how you just throw last gen away like it was nothing.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        It is old. Might as well put Black Ops 3 on the PS2, since last gen players are okay with them taking out certain content and features.

        • GinsuVictim

          It was his use of the term POS that I took issue with.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            He means the hardware is atrocious. I’m not going to get into that.

            Still does the trick for a lot of people. Current gen is the smallest leap forward in tech in the history of console releases.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Wrong, it is one of the largest. I haven’t seen such a graphical increase in the industry. Those people had a year and a half to invest.

          • GinsuVictim

            Atari to NES/SMS to Genesis/TG-16/SNES to N64/PSX/Saturn to Dreamcast/PS2/Xbox/GameCube to Xbox 360/PS3…..all substantially bigger leaps forward than the lateral move to current gen.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I didn’t really see as much of a difference with the 360 mad PS3 and past gen until a couple of years after. Now, resolution has increase from sub-720p to 1080p on PS4 99.9% of the time. It’s not minor.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            STFU you lil stupid bitch. If I’m a troll, you’re a bitch. How the hell is last gen atrocioius when you just played on it within last 2 years? If we’re talking non COD games you’d have a case for the “huge graphical leaps”, but you seriously think AW looks so much better than BO2? Why do you always feel the need to hide your clear biases behind other reason. How is he wrong because YOU personally think it’s the biggest in “industry” history? Some Xbox One games barely break 720p just like last gen and true dedicated servers still aren’t implemented. You love trying to justify what you personally feel and worse you’ll bullshit your reasoning.

          • GinsuVictim

            Everyone I know with current gen consoles still play last gen more.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            So I made you angry? That’s cute. Go ahead and have your little temper tantrum. But you can take it somewhere else and grow up, while you’re at it.

            1. Because of the hardware increase, perhaps? Perhaps you don’t see such a difference because of the fact that last gen held CoD back?
            3. Not just graphical leaps, although it plays some sort of factor, because technology is constantly changing. Yes, the graphical difference between BO2 and AW are HUGE. AW is a flawed game, but it looks good. That’s pretty much it.
            4. Okay, hypocrite. You call me biased, when you ride Activision and Advanced Chorefare over and over again. I’m not biased, I just have an open mind and common sense, unlike you, who is making up excuses to try and make me angry.
            5. More hypocrisy. You call my reasoning bullshit, when you’re doing the same thing I just mentioned. LMAO

          • GinsuVictim

            1,3,4,5

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I don’t get it

          • GinsuVictim

            Look at your post.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Fuck

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            You don’t have an open mind at all. You stated SBMM is bad mostly because it hurts your enjoyment of the game. You want past gen to just go away despite millions of people on the platforms and sales. I give two shits about Activision, SHG, 3arc or IW. I buy the games, I enjoy them and if I don’t I sell them and move on. How is just sitting complaining about shit from your myopic point of view any better than a fanboy anyway? At least a fanboy actually enjoys the games and finding info. You seem to only come here to bitch. That’s pretty much all you do.

            Obviously there is a difference between last gen and current gen. That however doesn’t mean that past gen is what’s holding current gen back. Games like Mortal Kombat X, NBA 2K15 and FIFA are great despite being on past gen as well. Also the difference between current gen and PC is huge yet you aren’t complaining about how PS4/XB1 is holding PC gaming back. Again, you are like the exact opposite of open minded. You tell your pov, give like 3+ reasons to justify your pov and that’s it. I’m not a fanboy of any console, and damn sure not any publisher. Calling you out for bs doesn’t make me a fanboy. Just like bitching all the time doesn’t make you some cool renegade that’s anti establishment. You’re just a bitch. You care about COD and this site more than actual fanboys do you fucking bitch….

          • GinsuVictim

            Just to clarify, MKX is not out on last gen yet and the release date is TBA.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Oh that I know, but MKX as far as graphics and how smooth gameplay(offline lol) is should be enough evidence of how great it is on current gen despite last gen being in development. NBA 2K15 and FIFA 15 are other case of current gen game being excellent despite last gen.

          • GinsuVictim

            Gotcha.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            yep, you’re mad. And it’s fact, a vast population hates SBMM and wants it removed. OBJECTIVELY speaking, last gen ports are a bad thing, whether you like it or not.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            I’m not mad at all. OBJECTIVELY speaking I can see why people don’t like SBMM or last gen whether superficial or not. Difference is unlike people like you I’m not arrogant enough to think my disdain for COD or SBMM or MicroDLC means enough to impact sales or future of COD. COD gamers are notorious for never being happy, immature and just rude. The worst part is despite all these strong “objective ” opinions you have you’ll still buy the game. Again you’re sort of howling at the moon”. What’s funny is I don’t even like SBMM because it makes things less organic but also because the skill of the opponents are better which is a tad more difficult. I’m man enough to admit that. YOU just wanna act like that has zero to do with it and pretend SBMM causes Ebola. I think people should move on from last gen but if they can’t I don’t feel the need to make a reach that it’s anti consumerism or going to hurt current gen to bolster my argument.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It impacts the future of CoD. This is objective. SBMM impacts the future of Sledgehammer CoD games. It threw many people off, at least the ones who played MP. Last gen affects the future of CoD because it changes the amount of content and features. And last gen doesn’t even make that many sales, anymore, in other games. Its a little under half for CoD, so that’s why they did it. Still anti-consumer.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            And it’s impossible to enjoy a game that hinders your experience for another playerbase, get out with that asinine logic. Fanboy.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Calling someone a fanboy is asinine. How is calling you out on YOUR bullshit got anything to do with how I feel about COD, Activision or the world at large. You’ve called like 4 people fanboys which is like your go to move for some reason. I’m not defending SBMM, I”m saying that your reasoning for wanting it gone is selfish and maybe admit that. Like 3 others implied the same thing and you called them all fanboys. I’m sure your next pejorative will be “kid”

          • idkwhatmynameis

            1,3,4,5???

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            6? 7?

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            How the fuck is the hardware “atrocious”? Do you only speak in hyperbolic terms. The last gen consoles are dated but in no way are they “atrocious”. Same hardware your bitch ass was playing on two years ago this time? Then you compare xbox 360/PS3 to PS2 even? You love make over the top statements and playing the, “everyone feels this way” games. STFU

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            That’s because it’s objective. Last gen is $120-200. The hardware is atrocious. And you keep proving that you’re a troll. Bye

      • Blaine

        Because today last gens consoles ARE nothing. 512mb ram, LOL

  • Guywithbrains

    Those who are wondering about old gen ruining current gen:

    “Activision has suggested some of the changes that players will experience on older hardware. There is a “goal” of two-player cooperative play (as opposed to four-player co-op on PC and current-gen). Other elements built to take advantage of Xbox One- and PlayStation 4-specific features also won’t make the cut.”

    So you still get your “special features only for current gen”. Also I guess this community has never expected awesome graphics from Call of Duty games so cut the crap with old gen holding current gen back.

    Actually the only thing holding “true Call of Duty current gen experience” back is old heavily modified game-engine.

    Sincerely, current gen (PS4) owner.

  • Johnny

    Has anybody asked Treyarch if multiplayer supports 64 players? I mean we are in the “next-gen” here or 32 vs 32 zombies?

    • GinsuVictim

      Couldn’t pull it off and maintain 60fps without a completely new CoD engine.

    • Drasadex

      Doubt it.

      I am curious about the team size for Zombies though. Hoping for 8-man co-op!

  • Blaine

    This is so fucking stupid. The curse of last gen just will not go away… now the 3rd game in a row that will not reach it’s full potential because last gen is a zombie that just wont die.

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      Where is the proof that last gen’s existence has any significant impact on current gen? Current Gen hinders PC player’s experience but of course bitches like you only care about PS4 or XB1 to justify spending $400. COD isn’t held back by PS3 or 360 it’s held back by Activision.

      Just play what you got and STFU. COD will never be the same. People used to just play to relax and have a good time. Now they are so focused on the company and now bitching that last gen is somehow preventing current gen.

      • Joshwoocool

        “Treyarch is working exclusively on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.”
        Id like to point this out also.this means that the game is getting ported down to the 360 and ps3.That also means that Xbox one and PS4 wont get held back.

    • Joshwoocool

      If you read the article,Treyarch is only developing next gen.

      Beenox and Mercenary Technology is just porting this down to the 360 and PS3.Also if you read the article they state that stuff will be missing in those versions of the game due to it being on last gen.

  • jordanxxxbrookes

    BO2 on PS3/360 is by far a better game than Ghosts AND AW on PS4/XB1 and the graphical differences aren’t all that significant either. But yeah, LAST gen is holding COD back not the actual devs and publisher themselves….But I guess last gen is the reason a last gen game from 2012 is better than the last two current COD games in 2013 and 2014. I think Treyarc knows what it’s doing. $400 isn’t enough money to act elitist and get on a high horse you weirdos

  • christopher woodhead

    So matchmaking will be crap like it was in Ghosts and AW due to the player base being split over 5 platforms.
    Well done, Activision.
    And, yes, I know Activision are here to make money but it’ll hardly help COD get out of the slump it’s in. They should invest everything in the new-gen versions and make them the best they can be.

  • #HUG

    With how some features featured in the current gen version of Black Ops 3 are being removed and discussion to remove others, I’d say last gen is not holding the newer systems back anymore. LIke how the ps2 had WaW Final fronts, a significantly stripped down version and didn’t really cause the version of WaW on 360 and PS3 to lack any content

  • James Simcoe

    God you people need to get a life.

  • Samed Musa

    why does it matter if its on old gen??!?!?! like why are you guys complaining

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      Because from some strange reason people believe that having COD released on PS3/360 will hurt the potential for PS4/XB1. There are no actual factual reasons of why this is the case and other gaming franchises have proven you can make current gen games great even while last gen exists. It’s almost like implying that iPhone 7 can’t be great or all it can be because Apple is still producing iPhone 5s

  • Sentinel

    They call Activision money whores…Hmmm more money, more options. Huge events, partnerships, future game investment, such as COD installments 2016, 2017, ect. Expand the game franchise in more innovated ways, within the 3 active studios. Have the chance to shine the light on old-gen console, and/or much more. Can you see the bigger picture? Now you can complain all you want if all you do is buy their game and play it…to later come to such articles and b!tch about how you don’t like this or that about the game. It is what it is, they won’t listen and continue to do whatever is right for the company and it’s games.

  • TheDemonOfHate

    Hmm I wonder if this studio is good or going to turn out to be another High Moon??

  • TheDemonOfHate

    Man screw this Current-gen is holding back last-gen. For the last time stop making CoD on current-gen. It’s making the game on last-gen unplayable. Freak this

  • jordanxxxbrookes

    Serious question, does like NOBODY see how petty and trivial it is to suggest last gen is holding current gen back? Like unless Treyarch of all people let’s us down what actual evidence is there that last gen holds anything back at all? It’s Activision all they’d do is find more innovative ways to push micro transactions, used same old engine, terrible matchmaking and still not give us true dedicated servers. If anyone actually believes one of those things would be true with last gen eradicated then ok. If it’s legit just, “come on, you can afford $400 system you broke bastards, get on my level” like it sounds like, you guys probably need to think about others.

  • ccrows

    Mixed feelings about this TBH.

    I’m happy for the people that can’t make the jump, and I get that some people will say that they had more than enough time.

    Personally, I’m not worried about current gen being screwed out of DLC guns, because Purple Royalty guns are being excluded from Prev Gen.

    Really the only thing that I hate about this is that it cuts into current gens pop…

  • Xecho

    Fucking shit.

  • WesupDude

    Damn…..so close.

  • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

    aaaaand Derrrrrrrr was right yet again!

  • PC has had “next or current gen” graphics for a while now. But this still does affect PC.

  • MichiganerE

    These consoles need to just die already. Seriously, ten year old systems should not be supported. Oh well, the ports for last-gen will probably be shit anyways.

  • Dr. Salim

    Who?

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    Let Activision waste time and money on a 10 year old systems. The truly stupid people will be the ones that buy it on those systems. Waste of resourses!!!

    • burrgee

      I bet your mom bought your xbox one you fruitcake, Stop wasting the resourses on earth “Oxygen” and just drown yourself in the bath, you would do the world a little favour!!!

      • Baldmanz_RAGE

        Hostility. Were you not hugged enough when you were little? Did your daddy leave you? Mom a whore? Sounds about right. And by the way I think you need to enroll back in school because you don’t know how to spell fuckface!!!

        • burrgee

          Yeah nice story bro. What’s your daddy’s finger smell like? Stupid question, your asshole

    • GinsuVictim

      I’m happily stupid, because I’m not buying a console for one game.

      • Baldmanz_RAGE

        Why not buy other games. Eventually there will be nothing new for these old systems. if you are happy playing scaled down versions then feel free. And also remember unless you plan on playing strictly campaign you will not have the numbers on your side for multiplayer.

        • GinsuVictim

          I have a 10 year backlog for 360 of close to 300 games. That will keep me plenty busy and allow the One / PS4 to build better libraries.

  • HipHopsFinest

    how the hell is OLD GEN holding this game back from NEW GEN? PLEASE EXPLAIN. if yall would actually READ what treyarch have been saying, then there wouldn’t be any worries in your minds. treyarch CLEARLY said they are ONLY focused on NEXT GEN ONLY! so with that being said, Whoever is on NEXT GEN CONSOLES will get full features and attention that treyarch have to offer and give. on the other hand, the PS3 and XBOX 360 versions will be handled by another studio, so in that case treyarch will not even be focused on old gen consoles. so please stop the crying already, and if it hurts you that bad that they are doing this, then DONT BUY THE GAME. SIMPLE!!!! jesus christ, what a bunch of babies. you knew this was going to happen, why the hell would they NOT make a version for old gen consoles? the majority of players are STILL on old gen. they would lose alot of money. ?

    • burrgee

      Couldnt have said it better myself, bunch of crying 12 year old fat fucks, thats why barely anybody comes on this site anymore its annoying

    • Juses

      Treyarch has to think of last gen consoles when they make Black ops 3 because if they don’t the game won’t be able to run on last gen at all.

    • shadowguy14

      Another company is making the 360/PS3 version. Treyarch is only working on PS4/One.

  • burrgee

    Yes yes yes its out on last gen im so hyped cant wait for this game

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    Before the update, Hell no it was frustrating. Now we’ve have the update I never freeze.

    • Kobrah

      They fix the game 8 months after release, so all is forgiven?

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        Yes definitely. I believe in forgiveness.

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    I’m a PS person, not an XBOX. But the possible reason why he is playing a PS4 is because it will play out better graphics than XBOX ONE. I believe PS4 will run 1080p while XBOX ONE will run at 920p. Correct me if I’m wrong. People will play BO3 before release will play PS4 because it is the console that can run the highest graphics. So Treyarch will wanna show off their game in 1080p rather than XBOX ONEs 920p. This has nothing to do with exclusive DLC. Although I would love to see PS have the exclusivity deal with Activision for early DLC.

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    Piece Of Shit? really? Just remember where you came from.

  • GodFamous

    At Least All The Tryharders Go To Next Gen Then Old Gen Will Be Easier To Play With Out Hackers

    • Michel

      It doesn’t work like that.
      PS3 & X360 are fully hacked, PS3 even more so.
      Current gen/PS4&XONE isn’t, so hacks aren’t possible.

    • ethan boone

      Yes it will last gen will run till 2020 maybe after ?

  • Yeah Godly

    yh and your a retard because old gen can support dlc weapons just the glitches in the game every youtuber releases map exploits thats why the game is garbage blame the youtubers who release them exploits and everyone uses them don’t post exploits then the game will be ok

    • PandaMan

      It can’t support all the weapon DLC that devs want to add though! BO2 only had one, given it was on last gen. Ghosts had two. And now AW has 2 not counting Irons. This game could have so much more content if they would drop last gen

  • Aaron

    Think of it this way, There letting us say goodbay just one last time before they stop making games for the xbox, Tbh there money hungry as shit though, and next gen really isnt that better, Like literally compare it, There is almost no fucking difference, What your paying is the fact that it has a newer name, and they know you will buy it because everyone else will, while there laughing in there penthouse with coke, Women and Your hard earned $$$.

  • PandaMan

    Why doesn’t Activison just give High Moon Studios or Raven Studios the task of making their own spin off game for X-Box 360 and PS3 like they would do for the Vita, DS, iOS, etc.? This would allow for our three main developers to develop for next gen and the experience that we would expect from them, and the last gen consoles could have their own game that wouldn’t hold current gen back.

    • GinsuVictim

      Current gen isn’t being held back by this release.

      • PandaMan

        The past two CoD games have. Why don’t you think this one will be the same?

        • GinsuVictim

          Because they are already saying right off the bat that current gen will take advantage of newer tech and that the last gen versions will be missing features or be quite a bit different. The DLC isn’t even going to be announced for last gen until later because it might not even be the same.

          • PandaMan

            The ports are always lacking something. That’s because they’re PORTS! Not exact replicas of the game itself. The past two games have been ports for last gen. They have gotten the same DLC because IW and SHG have to cater it for last gen.

          • GinsuVictim

            “The ports are always lacking something. That’s because they’re PORTS! Not exact replicas of the game itself.”

            No shit.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Beenox is owned by Activision. Mercenary Technology is an independent developer that apparently specializes in porting games over to other consoles.

  • UnguardedUncle2

    That’s good, I’m excited for it cuz my friend was wondering if it’s true that old consoles will continue, so I told him that it’s true.

  • shadowguy14

    Oh, this is going to piss off SOOOO many fanboys of current gen XD
    Personally, if last gen users (like myself) want to miss out on some functions of newer games, be my guest. I’m buying a PS4 this summer (or holidays, don’t know yet) because the newer games look like shit on 360 in my opinion.

  • Ian

    Black ops is shite anyway…. so this will be a no go for me.

  • mauricio

    Why the hell they’re just working exclusively in current-gen consoles????!!!!!!!!!!!

  • mauricio

    and all the others ones,SHITTTTTTTTTTTT

  • kiyrow

    LOL people are dumb here just wow…. the ps3 and 360 ver is being worked on by someone other then Treyarch “Treyarch is working exclusively on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.” so it wont change anything on new gen ^^

  • Jadon Kadel

    It’s good that they’re making it for last gen, for people like me in financial situations where I can’t upgrade anytime soon

  • Jeremy Freeman

    With all the trade in deals, and sales going on etc. There is no financial “reason” gamers won’t switch to next gen. They’re just stubborn, and don’t think there is any real need too. A year ago I would have said you’re right, there’s not. But holding onto the past is just silly. For the price some of these people (a lot of young kid/adults) pay for cigarettes/beer/drugs or whatever. They could have had a next gen console last year, or before. But I guess they’d rather waste their money on things that kill them, or pollute their bodies. In stead of something enjoyable, that won’t “kill” you. As for real adults, many are just to busy to care about gaming period. I myself am a casual gamer, but hey. I play what i want, whenever I want too. 😉 I’m good with new stuff.

  • DEEZNUTZ

    Guys atleast be happy about it old Gen consoles but what about people that has an Xbox 360 or a ps3 what if they dont have enough money to buy next Gen console that’s why they do it to make stuff fair for people that still have a 360 or a psi

  • twukk

    lol @mark they make bo3 available for ps3 and xbox 360 because unlike those rich money hungry next gen game producers they understand that not everyone has 400 dollars to blow some of us work 2 jobs or have kids to take care of or simply have bigger priorities then buying a new console just for 1 game hence why they did it so those of us who truly grew with the series can still access all the collection on one system which is why your complaining just got rekt any questions feel free to ask ill be happy to let you see your place

  • ezra

    heheheh no campaign for old gen and the graphics is the saddest thing i have ever seen
