UPDATE: Microsoft Japan has clarified that they will also be publishing Black Ops 3 in Japan on Xbox One and Xbox 360. However no confirmation on the beta in Japan has been announced. 

Original Story:

Sony Entertainment Asia today announced that they are partnering with Activision Publishing to deliver Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to the Japan market. Sony announced that PlayStation players in Japan will be able to Black Ops 3 on PS4 starting November 6th.

Sony has also stated that they will be publishing Black Ops III on PS3 as well in Japan, but not on November 6th. It will be available at a later date.

Sony Japan will work with Activision to also offer the Black Ops 3 beta in Japan for all PlayStation 4 owners, starting August 19th and ending August 23rd. Players in Japan will be able to download the beta without a code starting on August 19th.

In addition, DLC will also be available for Japan players upon the launch of each map pack.

    “Players in Japan will be able to download the beta without a code starting on August 19th”

    so if you have a japanese playstation account, you can play the beta without a code in other countries?

    • Kyle Soule

      I think so.

    • Ron Swanson

      whats the fucking point tho if you can preorder now and then cancel the preorder afterwards on the ps store?

    • I think it costs a little amount of money to download it tho

  • I’m too cool for me

    Hi I am cool and you might be

    • Kyle Soule

      I am not just cool. I am sweg.

      • BLINDEYE

        with a comment like that you are geeey

        • Kyle Soule

          Ok but you are gay.

  • You’ll have to put your credit card information on the Japan account, pay 10 yens (like 10 cents) and they’ll refund that after you’ve downloaded the beta

    • LovekillerX

      I got my free beta code from Reddit. Some guy listed 1000 codes (I don’t know how he/she got all these codes) but hey can’t complain!

      • Thatlazykid

      Damn all gone, do you have more?

      • Thomas the TankSwag

        They probably never worked in the first place, dont waste your time typing anymore he gives out.

    • Daniel

      I need one desperately

      • ScOott

        Why you not got one ??

      • Jason_88

        Go to the store and pay 5 dollars to get one if your that desperate ??

    • lovefromfinland

      Guess I had some nice luck. In my country there is one retailer that allows you to preorder or even order stuff and you don’t have to pay right away. They just wont ship it until you pay. I preordered Black Ops 3 from this retailer right when it was added on their site back in May and now I received a beta code from them earlier. For free! How nice.

      Greetings from Finland (maybe some Finn here recognizes this retailer 😉

      • modernpoika

        I dont recignize, i ordered mine from VPD, what about you?

  • DJ3K

    I have three codes if anyone want, first I need to find it, it’s buried in my email

    • robahermanas

      meeeeee

    • HenryDF

      One would be great, thanks so much man.

      • ScOott

        Why you not got one ?

        • HenryDF

          Haven’t preordered the game and really not sure if I plan on doing so. Not really excited about it but figured it’d be worth playing it to see if it’s worth spending the money on, otherwise I’ll pick up something like Battlefront or Uncharted.

          • ScOott

            Pay the 5 dollars/pound to get it. if you don’t like it, put the pre order towards uncharted .. It’s worth a 5 pound deposit just to see if it’s good or not?

    • Burn

      Me

    • modernpoika

      I would love to give one for my friend

    • Piotr Piter

      Can I have one?

  • Parrylyse

    Can someone please tell me what used to occur in Japan?

    • FraMarte

      I think they have never got COD before because it’s a different market from western world. Just think of COD Online for Chinese gamers which has an Asiatic style (think of manga and anime)

      • Tep Kok

        Jesus fuck this is literally the stupidest thing I’ve ever read on this website. CoD is published by Square Enix in Japan, and has been since CoD 4. Half a second in Google and you could’ve saved yourself looking like a complete retard.
        The mere idea that you’d actually assume Japan, the 3rd biggest video game market in the world, would have never had a CoD game published over there despite the series’ popularity is so incredible in itself that I’m not even going to dwell on it, I might have an aneurysm. You lumping in China with Japan and assuming they share the same culture and appreciation of Japanese arts like manga and anime is almost as bad, as is your use of the non-term “Asiatic”.

        America, please educate your children better.

          Ok. But just read my first and second word again: “I think”. At least I thought. And I googled “cod in japan” but nothing related to this found.

  • Darun98_

    ” Sony Japan will work with Activision to also offer the Black Ops 3 beta in Japan for all PlayStation 4 owners ” ….does that mean free beta for them ?

    • It’s free anyway lool

      • Dr. Salim

        Beta is not free.

        • DJ3K

          Depends where you live and where you order from. If you order from Amazon (at least in USA anyway), you can cancel order once you receive code, and you’ll never be charged, since they only charge you once it’s shipped. So it is free for some.

          • Darun98_

            i have already pre-ordered the digital deluxe edition ( USA account ) but if it’s free on japan accounts that’s mean beta free for everyone since you can just create an account and download it ?!!

  • Extronix

    If anyone has a BETA code just DM me @YontiGaming on twitter

  • ScOott

    Who are these people who haven’t got beta codes, but come to a cod site regular.. I don’t get why you wouldn’t have one allready :-s

    • Extronix

      Cause I am 17 yet my damn parents can not afford 59 dollars to preorder. I would have bought it if i was not paying for college… And all my mates got a copy so I have like a couple days till the XBOX beta starts to get a code!

      • ScOott

        All you have to do is pre order, it cost 5 pound I assume near enough the same in dollars.., you don’t have to give the full amount and if u don’t like it you can get it back..

        • Thomas the TankSwag

          Preorder online and its free almost everywhere

      • FraMarte

        Il tuo pre-order on the Store is TOTALLY free if you cancel it before the release date (and if you leave it pre-ordered without having money on your account you won’t me charged anyways)

        • Extronix

          umm no and no i doubt 5 pounds is anything near 60 dollars

          • ScOott

            It cost 5 dollars! Have you never pre orderd a game before ?

          • Just pre order off amazon it’s 100% free…

          • Will WilFredo Mendoza

            I had to pay $25 to preorder mine at Gamestop (Hardened Edition)

          • Siftblade

            That’s because it’s the hardened edition, and those can actually run out.

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      I lost my reciept 🙁 lost my code!

      • Dr. Salim

        Cameras are powerful things to use.

        • LegitBedsheets

          Amazon

      • ScOott

        Thats unlucky, you could still Pre order a standard edition get a code and then Cancel it and put it towards your hardended edition? ..

    • MichiganerE

      Because I don’t pre-order.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Pre-ordering $5 and cancelling it won’t hurt anything. This is a bullshit practice on Activision’s part.

        • MichiganerE

          Nope, still not doing it. I made an oath to never pre-order games, never buy games on launch and never buy micro-transactions ever again.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Good for you. You are doing the right thing for gaming.

          • MichiganerE

            Thanks.

      • ScOott

        That’s a pretty stupid reason to miss a beta to a series you must love ..

        • MichiganerE

          But I don’t love CoD anymore, that love died with Black Ops 1 and is now long gone. In fact, thanks to the most recent games, I not even that much of a fan anymore.

          • Thomas the TankSwag

            Then why come to a cod news site?

          • MichiganerE

            Because I’m still interested in the series.

          • jooker-jr

            So… you like the series ?

          • MichiganerE

            Not that much anymore seeing as i’m not that much of a fan anymore. But, I still have interest in it.

  • DJ3K

    ok have the three codes, burn, henry and roba, first three to reserve, tell me y’all email

  • Drasadex

    .

  • Xayo

    Anyone playing the xbox beta? Can’t wait.

  • xbox numba one fan

    • DJ3K

      you been living under a rock? They announced playstation exclusivity at E3

      • xbox numba one fan

        Wat is E3

        • Group_935

          Only “true” gamers know about it buddy.

          • xbox numba one fan

            u meen peopel that hav no lifes. wat is a true gamer you meen like alia and tmartin

      • Xayo

        The reason he doesn’t know is probably because he has a life and doesn’t waste his time searching for news 24/7… It’s like you expect everyone to know about this shit.

    • Drasadex

      wat

  • semir krcic

    Who ever has ps4 can get free pre order

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      Nope. Depends on retailer. I had to pay $25 at gamestop to preorder (Hardened Edition)

      • DJ3K

        $25 is also how much gamestop will offer you, to buy back your hardened edition, once you walk out their doors. Even if you just paid $80 plus tax total.

      • Group_935

        Really, I only had to put down $10 for the harden edition at Gamestop.

  • DJ3K

    No one living in USA should be asking for codes, order from Amazon.com and then cancel the order if you don’t like what you see from beta, They don’t charge you until it’s shipped, which is at least 2 months from now, got plenty of time.

  • 69th 🙂

    It looks like Spectre has exo cloak like ability and nice looking glowing daggers.

    Sometimes, I hate to be a Brazilian Guy! We Brazilians LOVE Games and these things, like BETA’s, Expo Games etc etc etc NEVER COMES HERE!
    I want to pre-order Black Ops 3 on Steam and the game is still UNAVAILABLE here in Brazil…
    F**K!!!

    • Group_935

      Maybe if you don’t join the American servers for Bf4, then maybe you will have the Beta. In all honesty though, you guys get screwed by your government for gaming. I feel sorry you ya’ll.

      • Diego Diniz

        Sad But True Bro! Sad but True…

  • Whatever

    Sony stop

    • DEMOLITION12

      fuck off

  • I think you made a mistake in your description. “Sony announced that PlayStation players in Japan will be able to Black Ops 3 on PS4 starting November 6th.”

  • Ryumoau

    i’m not sure how popular this series is in japan but its still nice to see it going there. The more players in the Beta, the better. 🙂

    • Yeah, especially on PC a bigger player pool will help make the game a lot better.

      • Kobrah

        Good for Australians too! I would much rather a Japanese lobby than an American one

    • Greasy Neckbeard

      “the more lag, the better”

  • DJ3K

    who’s still looking for codes?

  • ShortWaveKmoT
