With today’s PlayStation Store update, PlayStation, Activision, and Call of Duty Endowment now allow players to directly donate to the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit charity organization founded by Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick to help find vets jobs, and get a theme free for the PS4 or PS3.

Help veterans find quality jobs with a donation to the Call of Duty Endowment. Your donation will be distributed in grants to only the most efficient veterans charities that pass a rigorous audit to earn the Endowment’s “Seal of Distinction.” With your donation you’ll get a PS4™ system theme by artist Jason Heuser.

There are multiple donation amount levels, starting from $1 all the way up to $50. Any donation package gets you the theme for free. Players on Xbox 360 have been able to get this theme since August of last year.

    • Spodermen

      k.

  • Wait, isn’t that last years Ghost thing? Lmao!

    • Kyle Soule

      Yh I know. Exact same thing I was thinking.

  • bic boi

    I’ll only donate if sledgehammer brought the 3 new weapons to ps3/360

    • It’s physically impossible to do that. There isn’t enough space left. That’s why it’s only on current gen.

      • bic boi

        Yet rockstar is able to add so much content for gta V on ps3/360…smh and sledgehammer can’t simply add the new guns? If I knew there were gonna be limitations on last gen consoles i wouldn’t have bought aw for ps3 in the first place and would have bought a ps4 for aw

        • Well now you know to get BO3 on current gen.

          • bic boi

            No I’m too butthurt now I’m gonna quit gaming

          • Oh ok.

          • Kyle Soule

            Me too.

        • Dante

          And Rockstar said flat out that after awhile they won’t be able to update the PS3/360 due to system limitations. Also there are certain things on PS4, Xbox 1 and PC that isn’t on PS3/360.

        • ccrows

          Yeah I guess all those new songs on GTAV current gen will be dropping in on prev gen too.

          I guess that First person mode will be dropping in prev gen too.

          Tell you what why don’t you sit in front of your console right now, and wait for that stuff to drop… *SMH*

    • Keshav Bhat

      That won’t be happening. They’ve hit a hard limit and can no longer add any more weapons to the game. This game is different than many other CoD games because there’s over 400 weapon variants and each one takes up space in the game’s memory. Once the memory is filled up, they cannot actually add more memory to already shipped 10 year old hardware

      • Kyle Soule

        How much space does one weapon take up? Just curious.

        • Keshav Bhat

          Great question, and one that I don’t know the answer too. Xbox 360 and PS3, if I remember correctly, have 512MB of RAM, while XB1 and PS4 have 8GB of RAM.

          • Kyle Soule

            Jeez, thats a huge difference.

          • True, but they work differently. The architecture was much more complicated. The PS4 and Xbox One use RAM like a PC. I remember studying this. It was very confusing…

          • Kyle Soule

            The architecture for what was more complicated?

          • It used the RAM differently, I think it was in a faster way. Imagine a system on a normal 512mb of RAM. That would be terrible.

          • Kyle Soule

            That would be terrible for sure. But what system are we talking about here?

          • Consoles. And that’s where things change. I’m just not fully sure what that change is.

          • Kyle Soule

            Oh ok.

          • I just did some more research and the main reason seems to be because of the operating systems. The 7th gen consoles would nearly close every process except the game it was running. This let the consoles need less RAM. Now both 8th Gen consoles and PCs have a lot of background processes. They need that extra RAM to perform, which makes sense. If you look at my PC right now you’ll see I’m already using nearly 4GB of RAM without that much stuff running in the background (that’s debatable).

          • Kyle Soule

            Interesting…

          • Btw, PS3 only has 256mb of RAM.

          • Thomas the TankSwag

            It has 256mb of normal RAM, 256mb of video RAM , and about 12mb of ESRAM i think.

            360 just had 512mb of universal RAM.

    • Xx_COLSEY_xX

      I’ll donate to the people who ask for new weapons for Last-Gen just to keep their mouths shut

  • drjakeyoung

    Lol, remeber when everyne thought that that robot hand was apart of the new “cyborg” co-op mode? Those were good times. Then they released exo survival……

    • jordanxbrookes

      Yeah. Cyborg Survival would’ve been so much better than both Exo Survival and Exo Zombies.

  • melchor2679

    ‘Merica

  • Ryumoau

    i was waiting for this theme to release on ps3 since it was first announced for xbox a year ago. Better late than ever i guess. I’ll get the ps4 version. 🙂

  • MadMoneyBanks

    Heres a 1080p/60fps Video of the Call of Duty Endowment Theme for PS4: http://bit.ly/1K5XYaH

  • jordanxbrookes

    Didn’t they do this last year?

    • It was a free wallpaper I believe, not exactly a theme.

    • Kyle Soule

      Yes

  • MaZerN

    when is this coming to Europe?

    • Kyle Soule

      Never 🙂

  • Adrian Rivera III

    Is George Washington standing on top of a Titanfall ? Lol

    • Yup, and he’s holding a Ripper. I actually liked that weapon in Ghosts. 😛

      • Adrian Rivera III

        Yea loved the Ripper my fav gun in ghosts I liked the MTAR-X a lot too

        • Haha, everyone used the MTAR-X before the vector got buffed.

  • NOVA_POLARIS

    I was planning on donating but if I donate on psn do I get the theme and the entry to become a zombie? Or just the theme?

    • ScOott

      What ? :-s

  • DEMOLITION12

    they have enough money, i’m good

  • Alex

    Yea.. no thanks. Giving money to American soldiers aka war criminals not my cup of tea l

    • DEMOLITION12

      the money is going to Bobby Kotick… who isn’t exactly American

    • Kyle Soule

      You are a war criminal o_o

    • Salty

      Go suck about 6 million nuts

    • guy

      Yet you’ll buy a game about American soldiers killing people…

  • GinsuVictim

    For those of you shitting on this, you need to understand the difficulty some vets encounter when trying to find work after returning home. I work for a state unemployment office and the physical disabilities some of them now have are one thing, but the PTSD is a bigger issue. Certain sounds can trigger things they didn’t even realize until they are suddenly on top of someone or running out of their house with a gun in the middle of the night.

    These brave men and women need our support.

    • I’ve forgotten.. again!

      But you’re missing the point – they’re American soldiers. Do you often find yourself wanting to donate to vets in other countries? And then remember that most the people that purchase this game – aren’t American.

      • GinsuVictim

        I’m 99.9% sure this is ONLY available to Americans anyway.

        • I’ve forgotten.. again!

          But it’s quite clearly promoting the game. I’m more than happy for an American company, to support an American charity – Just don’t do it to promote a game you sell globally. Why not support a globally relevant charity?

          Couldn’t imagine, say Rockstar doing something similar with GTA. Enter to have a chance of being a character in the game*

          *We don’t give a fuck what part of the world you’re from, if you’re not British; so you can pay for you’re own flights if you win.

          • GinsuVictim

            You’re making way too much out of something that isn’t being aimed outside the US anyway. The internet is global, but this promotion is not.

  • Slingshot // Twitch/iiillilili

    man thats cheap as shit, anyone can take a picture, put it on a flash drive, and have a new background picture…. they should give you something better for donating

    • GinsuVictim

      Donating is not about what you get in return.

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    Is this available for UK?

    • GinsuVictim

      As far as I can tell, this is US only.

  • Thomas the TankSwag

    Not too good of a theme to buy (especially being English), and there are better charities out there if i was going to just donate.

  • Mikey9835

    Calling it now: George washington will be a specialist character in BO3

    • GinsuVictim

      Considering this over a year old already, no.

    • Drasadex

      lmao what would the specialist ability be?

      • DeluxeFPS

        Eagles fall from the sky and kamikaze the opposing players.
