Activision has announced new details on the last gen versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Activision confirmed the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game was in development back in June by Beenox and Mercenary Technology.

The last gen version of Black Ops 3 will only include access to the multiplayer and zombies modes of the game. Activision originally announced that the last-gen versions will feature a 2 player campaign, but today, they’ve announced that the campaign mode will not be included at all.

The Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will feature Multiplayer and Zombies gameplay only, not Campaign. The ambitious scope of the 1-4 player coop Campaign design of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware.

With this being said, Activision has stated that players on Xbox 360 and PS3 will have access to the multiplayer and zombies mode.

Delivering the best possible gameplay experience on all platforms is always our highest priority. With that in mind, Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 players can continue to look forward to a new experience of Black Ops 3 multiplayer, including the new momentum-based, chain-movement system, as well as the all-new Specialist class of 9 Black Ops soldiers, which fundamentally change the way players engage in combat.

Black Ops 3 players on PS3 and Xbox 360 will also have a chance to immerse themselves in the all-new Zombies mode, called “Shadows of Evil,” which features a 1940’s film-noir inspired adventure that takes the signature Black Ops Zombies gameplay to a new level.

In addition, Activision has stated that all eSports features and the weapon paint shop will not be available on last gen.

Fans should note that other features built to leverage the next generation hardware like the new Weapon Paint Shop and the new suite of eSports tools will only be available on Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Because of these feature differences, Activision will sell the last-gen versions for a retail price of $49.99, and it will include a download code for Call of Duty: Black Ops 1.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be available for a suggested retail price of $49.99 and include a bonus download for the original Call of Duty: Black Ops (bonus download availability may vary by region), the game that launched this series.

With all of these differences, the last-gen versions of the game has a different box art. The box art states that in order to play Black Ops 3 on last-gen, an internet connection is required.

        • Mick

          I sometimes wonder what Keshav and Petey think when they look at the comments. Seeing the same posts in every article about people saying “furst” and speaking “Dolan” and stuff ?. Not hating just stating.

          • As long as it isn’t death threats or something incredibly inappropriate it won’t be deleted. They should find a way to ban certain words like a User can do with his/her Twitch chat.

          • Mick

            That would be cool. Or maybe even blocking or ignoring a specific individual like how Twitch has it.

          • I’m not sure if you can block a certain individual on Disqus so their comments don’t appear. I don’t think it’d work because then you wouldn’t see the base tweet. Just a bunch of replies lol

    R.I.P Last Gen

  • For $50. That’s not that bad. This sucks for the campaign players on last gen.

  • Vikerii

    In other words, “Upgrade your console already!”

  • fires

    Damn, sucks for last gen, but 50 bucks for Multiplayer,zombies and black ops 1 is pretty nice

  • jordanxbrookes

    I can definitely see Infinity Ward going current-gen only with next year’s Call of Duty title.

    • The Flash

      its up to ATVI whether it goes on last gen, but i do agree i think this will be it

      • jordanxbrookes

        True. I just hope ATVI don’t allow a port for last-gen, knowing them greedy bastards, and we finally see a true current-gen only Call of Duty game.

        • The Flash

          They wanted it for BO3 but i think they may have realized now it was a mistake and they’ve had to drop a mode rather than abandon the project, hence why free BO1 (bet BO1 DLC wont come with it though

      • It was Infinity Wards decision in 2013 to make Ghosts Last Gen not Activision. Which is why I believe this time around IW will make their next game Current Gen only

        • The Flash

          well it certainly wasnt 3arc with BO3, as they have said themselves they have no involvement with last gen work and no longer have last gen dev kits

    • Aidan

      I’m hoping for a remastered CoD 4. That’s the only way I can see Activision ending support for last generation consoles.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Call of Duty 4 on current-gen would be great, but I don’t think it will be a remaster.

        • Guywithbrains

          I am really waiting for Ghosts 2 and I think many others are waiting for it too despite the fact that many people hated Ghosts. But after all classic movement is coming back.

          • lunator100hd .

            Yeah with ieds , garbage maps and a stupid dog

          • Guywithbrains

            That dog ain’t stupid.

          • lunator100hd .

            It was annoying as fuck in mp

          • And a waste of space in Campaign

          • Guywithbrains

            Waste of space… I see what you did there. 😉

        • I think it will be. It’ll be in the rumored MW collection, which seems to have interested Hirshberg and all the Activision higher-ups.

          • The Flash

            id love a remastered MW3

          • Personally I found MW3’s campaign weak, but it Remastered along with COD 4 and MW2 would be beautiful

          • The Flash

            oh i dont care about the campaign, its the MP I enjoyed (Infected and Face-Off FTW)

          • Haha, I only want the Modern Warfare Collection for the campaigns. Imagine those stories in Next Gen graphics and 1080p! Gorgeous.

          • The Flash

            I couldnt get into the MW campaigns, im not really a solo player anyway. I did BO1/2 campaign and they were alright I guess, I’m looking forward to BO3 campaign though as it is co-op.

    • Mick

      Agreed. Last gen probably won’t be able to handle the hardware that will be in IW’s next installment, assuming that IW will innovate more stuff in their new game, etc.

  • D3ADWANTED 25

    I don’t know why Activision is still attempting to sell last gen copies after cutting out 1/3 of the game already and it can’t even be bought again but it stil smart of them to half the price.

    • Brian

      Clearly there’s still some sales still in last gen games and they are all about that money.

      • D3ADWANTED 25

        Obviously -_-

        • Brian

          Well then why comment that you don’t know why?

          • D3ADWANTED 25

            Cause i wanted to start a conversation

  • Guywithbrains

    Well that is really surprising and I feel sorry for old gen users. But don’t upgrade because of this – save your money for your real life costs such as bills and family. There is no true reason to upgrade to current gen in my opinion. And this comes from Playstation 4 owner.

    • ScOott

      Guywithbrains has no clue what he’s talking about again.. Why am I not suprised ..

      • Guywithbrains

        You have been really disrespectful lately. I thought you said everyone can have an opinion… if others don’t want to upgrade then let them be and stop thinking only your needs. And as I said there is no good reason to upgrade – no true exclusives and graphics aren’t that good either YET. Also online gaming is behind a paywall. Current gen would be a pass for me if I hadn’t a lot of money.

        • ScOott

          I didn’t say people had to upgrade .. Am saying there are very good reasons to upgrade, which your telling everyone there is none .. A bit hypocritical to say u have the ps4 allready ..

          • Guywithbrains

            Because I had a lot of money and I thought PS4 would run out of stock for a long time. So I had my reasons but I slightly regret buying PS4 too early. This is only my opinion so keep your pants on.

          • ScOott

            My pants are on, just because you regret getting your ps4 early doesn’t mean 10 million people feel the same.. Your telling people not to buy next gen because you regret buying one .. It’s yet another stupid reason..

          • Guywithbrains

            I make a clear list why I think it is not worth it:

            – Costs too much. 400 euro for that slight difference so no thanks.
            – Online gaming is behind a paywall. It was slap to my and many other Playstation users’ face.
            – No true exclusives. Games that Playstation is known of like Uncharted, God of War etc. are totally missing.
            – Graphics look the same. Games that have “nice graphics” are in other areas crappy (usually stories). And those other games that have awesome stories they have bad graphics.
            – You can play for free on Playstation 3 many classic games that many players like such as classic Call of Duty games.
            – Almost everything you can do on Playstation 4 you can also do it on Playstation 3 and for free (such as multiplayer).

            List goes on and this is only my personal experience but I am not clearly the only one who thinks this way.

          • ScOott

            But just because you feel like this other people should not buy a next gen console ? .. I can respect your opinion, but telling others not to buy just because your not impressed with the ps4 is stupid imo, I’m very impressed with my ps4 and xbox one.. I’m not going to tell everyone to rush out and buy one tho :-/ ..

          • Guywithbrains

            Many others do. And that is why I am sharing my opinion about if it is worth it or not to buy current gen console.

          • ScOott

            Many others also love ps4 and xbox one this is why I had to “butt in”

        • LovekillerX

          These are also my thoughts. Current gen isn’t worth it yet. People should wait for maybe two years before considering getting a current gen console. Activision knows that old gen is full of customers waiting for their version of Call of Duty.

          I wonder how you’re not knowing what you are talking about… you just said your opinion but yet again same person comes to call you dumb. Not surprising at all!

          Btw I won’t even bother to answer just wanted to share my thoughts although the storm is already coming…

          • Guywithbrains

            People say “calm before storm” right? And it is calm for now.

          • LovekillerX

            Exactly. Have my upvote!

        • Fly Mann13

          Save a dollar a day

      • BlowTwice

        Yes, because saving your money for things that actually matter is stupid.

        • ItzSikh

          yes but with price drops from both consoles surely upgrading shouldn’t be bad but if you really have things you need to save up for then who am i to argue.

      • Duke of hazard

        Why is every time I see GuywithBrians here, you’re replying with a stupid ass attitude?

        • LovekillerX

          Glad to see someone actually noticed.

          • Duke of hazard

            The funny part is this is the same guy that tried to lecture me on people having their own opinions and they should respect it. I guess practicing what you’re preaching is too much to ask.

          • LovekillerX

            Yeah he is pretty good at turning jacket 180 degrees when it is about his own advantage.

          • ScOott

            Please explain, or is this more bulshit your making up ..

          • ScOott

            Don’t encourage them.

          • ItzSikh

            buddy don’t listen to those sony ponies all they do is whine jack shit

          • ScOott

            I’ve never said any such thing to you, we was talking about the cod cycle last time I spoke to you, and I said these are all different opinion off different people .. Don’t get confused.

        • ScOott

          Because he’s the only one that chats shit..

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      No true reason to upgrade yet are limiting content on games that old gen cannot have. Youre fucking dumb.

      • ScOott

        Not to mention all the next gen games out, and that are coming out.. He just likes to make the most stupid comments going to get reactions.

        • just drank bleach

          Hey ScOot not sure why you’re bashing him with that comment, but I actually agree with him, as a current 360 user, I have no need to upgrade, I have more important things to pay.

          • ScOott

            If u read my comment you would realise I was talking about gamers in general, no where did I mention your name ..

          • just drank bleach

            But you did say ” he just likes to…..”
            Not even sure what’s going on anymore, I need to drink more bleach

          • ScOott

            Lol .. Like I said I’m not telling u your wrong far from it, im telling guywithBrains there are reasons to buy a next gen console, which he just tosses to one side as usual.. Of corse “life” is more important .. But he’s saying they are not worth it yet.. I’m saying they are ..

          • just drank bleach

            Yes, that I do agree there reasons to upgrade, but idk the ps4 nor the xbone hasn’t really given me the “WOW” factor, yea the graphics and specs are better but to me just not worth it, guess cause I mainly use my 360 to play Netflix and occasionally play (as you can see I just finished dead space lol, great game btw), and plus the wife said no loool.

          • ScOott

            Lol yh all depends how much of a “gamer” u consider your self.. I’m a super geeky nerd when it comes to games and I get everyone that looks half decent day one (which to me is most of them) instead of watching TV and films me n my wife just play games .. So it’s worth d every penny to me lol ..

          • just drank bleach

            ahhh, I see….
            can we swap wives then? jk….no seriously lol. I see where you’re coming from now, but I would love to play more games but with all these bills and the wife telling me to clean the house, I have no time lol.

          • ScOott

            Lmao sounds like you need to drink more bleach! You can’t clean without it :-p

          • just drank bleach

            There’s more drinking of the bleach to come, don’t you worry bout that

          • scootISA20yearoldkid

            Scoot its looking like we will have to post your stupid ass again why is it every time we come on here your acting hard?

          • ScOott

            Cuz i is a bad man blud.

          • ItzSikh

            don’t let your wife put you down (unless she really is a serious lady) be a free man. p.s im joking but congrats on the baby bro

          • just drank bleach

            And plus I’m waiting for the price to drop as well lol.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You mean older games you could have played years ago? Were you still playing PS2 last gen? There are plenty of reasons to upgrade. People are just making excuses, at this point.

        • ChaosVortex

          Most of the “next-gen” games are rehashes of stuff from last gen. There are some good game admittedly, but both the XB1 and the PS4 don’t pick up steam until next month. But up until this point have been pretty lacking minus a couple of gems.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            How are remasters “rehashes”? People claim that remasters don’t change much, when they don’t show any proof. They’re not rehashes, they exist for a reason.

      • Guywithbrains

        Or then another solution would be to not buy Black Ops 3 as old gen user.

      • Michael Bay Bay

        Most of your comments are pure salt. Go change your tampon.

      • ChaosVortex

        Wow, that’s one of the most retarded statements I’ve heard today

        • Will WilFredo Mendoza

          How can you hear when you you are fucking reading it you fucking dumbass.

          • ChaosVortex

            I hear everything over the internet in Morgan Freemans voice? *shrug*

    • I mean if they have some extra cash they should definitely go out and buy it. Last Gen will be dead in a year or two so it’d be smart t save a few bucks here and there for a PS4 or Xbox One

    • just drank bleach

      I have to agree, I’m a last gen user and I have no need to upgrade yet, funny you say that, I have a baby coming in January and yup most of my money will be going towards the baby lol.

      • Guywithbrains

        And I’m glad you decided that way. It is a lot better to save money for your baby than pleasing this community’s needs (making Call of Duty graphics improve [sounds funny by the way]).

      • LovekillerX

        This is the point that many people on this site can’t understand.

        • just drank bleach

          As he said, I don’t really have a “real” reason to upgrade, I have my mortgage, electricity, car, wife to pay lol.
          Would I like to have a better playing experience? of course who wouldn’t but it’s not a need but a want.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        There’s a huge list of reasons as to why everybody who hasn’t upgraded should. One thing’s for sure, is that the games that are releasing on the system now, run like shit. Guaranteed last gen ports from the last 2-3 years that are capped at 30 FPS rarely get past 20. It’s time to upgrade. There’s no excuse, at this point, except for the baby part. What about the past 2 years? All it takes is clever investments…

        • just drank bleach

          Trust me, I can buy a current gen console right now if I wanted to, I just don’t see it as a need right now, and plus there aren’t to many good games out for either consoles. I also think the best time to buy a next gen is around black friday, hell, the price might drop for bo3 for last gen during black friday weekend.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Well, I respect your opinion. I respectfully disagree. Bloodborne, Infamous Second Son, Until Dawn, and all the games coming out in the next year warranted my PS4 purchase in 2016. I won’t be getting an Xbone because Microsoft isn’t trying in terms of first party, and it’s just way too expensive as an average American to pay for two online subscriptions and full-priced games (well, at least Xbone games are cheap).

        • The thing is, even people who are financially stable, still have things they have to be aware of and/or look out for. Sure, you may be able to pay your bills, take care of your family (if you have one to take care of, that is) and all that good stuff, but what about the stuff you can’t or don’t see coming? Like, sudden vehicle issues or a family member out in another state or something becoming ill? *knock on wood*

          I’m not saying that you shouldn’t upgrade to current gen systems, nor am I saying that you absolutely should. However, there’s a difference between having the money to spend on something and actually being able to afford using that money on it.

          Honestly, I can understand the users who have stated that they either haven’t upgraded or have no need/desire to upgrade. I still own and play my PS3 proudly. Am I saving up cash to buy a PS4? Absolutely. However, it isn’t my #1 priority, at the moment.

          There was a user here who practically stated that NOT upgrading to a new generation of consoles (upon release) makes a person less of a gamer. And to that comment, my only argument is that not all “gamers” have the money to afford being a gamer. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t one. It simply means that they have more important things to worry about than a brand new, damn-near $400 console every 2-or so years.

          And, to the point someone mentioned about older gen games not being worth playing, that is nothing but perspective. There will always be a game that many enjoy that others don’t. That’s just how life goes. But, no one gamer is any more of one than another solely because of the gaming preferences.

          Anyway, there’s my two cents. Spend it how you will.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I think that that was explained beautifully. To add on top of it briefly, I think that anybody can afford a current gen console, especially at their lowest prices. If somebody now saved a dollar every day until the next Black Friday, then there’s their PS4, right there. The main issue stems from the fact that gaming in-general is an expensive hobby, so it depends on what and how everyone invests their money into.

    • ItzSikh

      please get your brain checked because surely you don’t deserve that name

    • Daniel

      You are not a guy w/ brains then,
      There are 99999 reasons to upgrade

      • LovekillerX

        “There is no true reason to upgrade to current gen in MY OPINION”. He isn’t stating this as a fact and he isn’t alone with this opinion because many people think this way too. *sigh*

        • Siftblade

          The problem is that that isn’t an opinion. You can’t just throw “in my opinion” after everything so that nobody can disagree with you. There are legitimate reasons to upgrade ( like no more games being released on last gen, missing content and worse graphics for the same price as current gens superior version, etc.) What he’s saying is like saying “ducks aren’t real in my opinion”. It’s just ignorant. If people can’t afford current gen it’s fine, just acknowledge that there are things that not only make it a better console now, but necessary in the near future if you plan on playing any new releases.

          • ScOott

            Lol.. This is exactly what I was trying to say!

          • Guywithbrains

            But everyone can disagree with me even if i say “in my opinion”. Then I expect someone to come and share theirs. This is no rocket science. Also in this case I can use “in my opinion” because it is my opinion – not worth it. Simple as that. Others can disagree if they want to but better do it constructively.

          • LovekillerX

            Some people just need practice so they can do it constructively. They’ll manage it some day. 🙂

          • ScOott

            I could do it constructively if your “opinions” made any sense.. This is exactly what I was talking about yesterday, you don’t think about what your saying, u just say it. Siftblade put it best.

    • RdJokr

      LOL OK, wait until Activision officially announces that last gen aren’t getting DLC maps, see if they listen to you then.

      If some people are really that poor and cannot afford a new console, then they’re better off saving that $49.99 for something else, rather than a gimped game that is not even guaranteed to run smoothly on last gen consoles. Remember how awful AW was on last gen? I’m sure I don’t need to remind you.

      On the other hand, if people are able to afford, but are just being lazy, then there is no excuse. Absolutely no excuse at all.

      • Caine Thomas Fiala

        Was it that bad in comparison? My friend had it for current gen and he complained about connection issues more than I ever did.

        • RdJokr

          Connection issues is a server problem, not a game problem. I’m talking more about issues like freezing, crashing. Which you hear a lot during AW season, especially on last gen.

          • WhiskeyDick

            The freezing issues occurred early on in the game due to a shitty update, last gen aw runs perfectly fine

          • RdJokr

            Really now? I hear a lot of issues when there was the M1 Irons update.

          • WhiskeyDick

            I can’t speak for others as everyone has a different experience but my clan and I don’t experience these issues n haven’t in ages since the one shitty update that plagued everyone with freezing

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Black Ops 2 had issues running at 60 FPS. It ran at 40 FPS most of the time, so you mean to tell me that last gen AW runs “perfectly fine”? No. Last gen is dead and needs to be killed off by 3rd party publishers. It still exists to get a little more profit. But it won’t be supported for much longer.

          • GinsuVictim

            As a last gen user, let me just say: AW did NOT run perfectly fine. Far from it!

          • i got that game on last gen and had none of those problems wtf are you talking about

    • lol wtf… haha your pills, did you take them today ?

    • shantzonpoint

      99% of people that argue your point have either had their parents buy them a new console, still live at home, been served with a silver spoon all their life, or are in enormous debt because they have no clue what it’s like to be fiscally responsible.

      • ScOott

        Or they get off there backside and get a job, and don’t get into debt in the first place lol, if u can’t afford something don’t buy it lol .. Fools will be fools..

        • shantzonpoint

          I’m fortunate that I have a good job and enough extra spending money to own both consoles. That doesn’t mean I don’t understand others aren’t as fortunate as i am which apparently you can’t understand.

          There are many young families trying to make ends meet that don’t have the extra $400+ to blow on a video gaming system. I know you’re trolling but there is no doubt in my mind you fall into one of the categories I mentioned otherwise you wouldnt make such an ignorant comment.

          • ScOott

            I was taking the pee out of your ignorant comment.. I built my own business from scratch, my point was stop being a jackass and assuming stuff about people ..

          • shantzonpoint

            Oh you mean just like you’re assuming anybody can afford a new console? *rolls eyes*

          • ScOott

            When have I said that ? :-s now you’re just making stuff up ..

          • Duke of hazard

            He does love to make 180 degrees real quick.

          • ScOott

            You’re so thick it’s unreal, you should join GuyWithBrains crew! You still don’t have a clue what our last convo was about lmao ..

          • Duke of hazard

            “you should join GuyWithBrains crew” Now that you mention it, I think I’d rather do that than side with a jerk that gives people unnecessary crap because he holds different opinions.

            It’s a shame. People can’t even like a certain game because jackasses give them crap about it.

          • ScOott

            I’ve done talking to you because you make no sense .. People can’t like certain games :-s what are u talking about lol .. Come back to me when u no what you’re taking about .. Thank you ..

          • Duke of hazard

            A guy that loves to do 180 has no right to talk about making sense.

          • ScOott

            Just random words with no meaning, I don’t even think you know what you’re talking about lol.. Get a grip and make sense because you’re making you’re self look stupid ..

          • Duke of hazard

            MM HMM Yea no problem Mr. 180

          • ScOott

            Good Mr freak who has no evidence to back up his claims, just another fool.

          • Duke of hazard

            You deny the fact that there’s a cod cycle (People outside the cod community knows there’s a cycle). You try to tell me about people having their own opinions than proceed to attack GuywithBrians and LoveKiller for their opinions. You also support people who even attack those 2. Now you try to insult people’s intelligence to make yourself look smart (and failed miserably)

            Bravo…. I’m proud of you. Helping the comment section get better than it was 3 years ago.

          • ScOott

            I loved black ops 2 when it came out, I didn’t start hating it half way through like the cod cycle says I should .. GuywithBrains loves A.w when it came out .. Guess what he still loves a.w even tho he is ment to hate it by now because the cod cycle says so .. I’m losing brain cells talking to you ..

    • spartanelite

      That’s because a ps3 and a ps4 are basically the same if you have only one current gen console I recommend you get it counter part of you current gen to play all its exclusives like I have an xb1 and I got a ps3 for the exclusives and its a good thing most of them are in collections too on the ps3 😀

    • spartanelite

      You say that like last gen is better

  • jnmgl

    And the people that buy the preorder BO3 on last gen? (my $10 bucks!!!, damn)

  • Mick

    That’s crazy. But all in all, it’s time to move on. If you don’t have a next gen console at this point, then you really need to consider putting money aside for one if you really want one. No purpose in buying it on last-gen. And for a price of 49.99? It ain’t worth a single cent.

  • Rob Schneider

    Seeing some gameplay would be useful too to help my decision for PC or 360

    • The Flash

      UK is the last to update listings

  • This is another reason I believe this is that final year for Last Gen COD. What a waste of time and money to make a port of a Current Gen game for 10 year old consoles.

  • CoDforever

    didnt they announce it would only be 2 players on last gen!??? but hey, props to them for lowering the price and giving out bo1 for free.

    • Mick

      I remember them stating that, but I guess it just didn’t work out in the long run.

    • Yup, but a 10 year old system can only hold so much. Not High Moons fault which is weird for me to say because they sucked with the AW port lol

  • Dangelo95

    I don’t want to here any last gen user complain you’re lucky you’re getting the game at all they could of easily just cancelled the last gen port but they didn’t they shouldn’t have even made it IMO but so many ppl complained and you got it!!suggest you guys upgrade this year cause next year I guarantee you there will be no game on last gen. I’m just glad last gen isn’t holding next gen back this year

    • I said this month’s ago, but no one ever listens ?

      • Dangelo95

        I thought last gen should of never even been on AW it’s a half ass port as it is so many things wrong with it… I would not be surprised at all if last gen gets no DLC signs point to this because nuk3town isn’t on last gen

      • ItzSikh

        last gen was already mentioned by vondy saying that there will be on but another studio is the head for last gen

        • Raul Lugo

          other studio was in charge of AW(PS3 & X360) and will be the same story…..

    • just drank bleach

      How did last gen hold back current gen? cause last I remembered for AW it was made by sledgehammer and worked by shg while for last gen it was ported by high moon, plus current gen users was able to get more silly outfits and guns, so not sure what exactly was “held” back.

      • Dangelo95

        I know last gen was developed by high moon but the only difference was content wasn’t different at launch which means it was held back cause if everything was able to make it in the game at launch it wasn’t at its full potential on current gen whole BO3 is at its full potential for content thus why there’s no campaign on PS3/360

        • just drank bleach

          Still doesn’t make sense, cause even if last gen were to have campaign, how would that still hold back current gen users? If one company is solely working on a game, for example treyarch is ONLY working on current gen and another dev is working for last gen, still doesn’t make sense the “holding” back when treyarch is not even putting their hands on last gen.

          • TheShwantz27 (Brian)

            When you are going to port games to inferior hardware you must make sacrifices. Backwards compatibility inhibits new functionality. Period. Ask any software developer & they’ll tel you this. Making games which can be ported backwards means you must make decisions about features and scalability when you know someone will have to make it for a 12 year old set of consoles.

          • Guywithbrains

            But so far I can’t see any “losses” in terms of current gen users. You get campaign, cop-op features, 60 fps and full HD (at least on PS4) so what is all the fuss about? I could understand current gen users’ complains if they actually lost something and could show me what are those “losses”.

            And don’t come at me and start talking about graphics because we all know Call of Duty is not about graphics and has never been.

          • TheShwantz27 (Brian)

            It’s almost impossible to know what features or adjustments had to be made during development to account for the possibility of backwards compatibility unless design documents get leaked or developers come out & say so. But as a matter of ultimate fact, if you know you’re going to have to make something compatible with inferior hardware, some software sacrifices must be made.

          • That Sōma Tho

            The game gets made for current gen first then it gets ported. Last gen isn’t going to get a campaign so you can basically determine that nothing was sacrificed for BO3.

          • TheShwantz27 (Brian)

            This is correct, HOWEVER, if a development team KNOWS that it will be ported down to inferior hardware, they will make design decisions up front that they know will help make it easier on the people doing the port for previous games. You never know what types of ideas were left on the cutting room floor b/c there was no way it could have been accomplished. Just b/c the co-op campaign isn’t coming to last gen doesn’t mean that “nothing was sacrificed for BO3” when the devs KNOW that their biggest $$ makers are zombies & MP (b/c you never get campaign DLCs nor people paying for micro transactions for things in single player) of COURSE they’ll gladly slice off campaign. But there are probably ideas which were deserted from both zombies & MP knowing full well that Activision was going to make another studio do a last gen port.

            I’m a software developer…so I know all about these things that happen all the time at my job. Of course we won’t say that certain cool things would have been possible b/c then that’s just shooting yourself in the foot.

          • That Sōma Tho

            Is it then possible that things got cut because current gen couldn’t handle it? Or is everything made with current gen capabilities in mind?

          • TheShwantz27 (Brian)

            Considering how shite the hardware is for PS4 & XboxOne compared to PC, sure it’s always possible. However, the jump in computing power between the current gen & PC is much smaller than that of last gen & current, so I’d guess there’s much more of a discrepancy between features that would have been left out at design time for that reason versus the prior.

          • Chase

            There is a massive jump in the Ram for last to current, now both PC and console are able to support the same amount of Ram, or computing power, since games will hardly support more then 8gb last gen if I remember, barely had like 3gb. What people seem to not read, is that the soul purpose they cut off campaign was because it wasn’t holding a mirror image to what Next Gen will get, therefore stripping them, I say Zombies. MP. And BO1 is a good flipping deal for a cut off of the campaign

          • just drank bleach

            The way I see it, is shg had their software to put full potential for current gen, and high moon had their software to use the potential of last gen, it’s like 2 games made but shared the same name.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            They share many things. SHG didn’t outright develop AW for last gen, but they oversaw/consulted in development, so I’m sure they both share the same code, but with far less graphical fidelity.

          • LovekillerX

            And to be honest if it would have been about graphics just take a look at AW how gorgeous it was on current gen consoles although it was also available on old gen. I don’t get the “fuss”.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The fact that it has troubles reaching 60 FPS on last gen. The fact that the game gives you less content. Or how about the fact that the BO3 port is always online? You can’t excuse such garbage.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            There’s not a whole lot it can do to current generation, because Treyarch isn’t developing the game for last generation consoles. My arguments, personally, stem from last generation users being shafted by Activision, making the last gen ports online only, for profit. You are getting a much lesser profit for a mere $10 less. The price should have been halved for the content you’re getting, for Zombies alone. If Zombies weren’t included (which it is), then a Multiplayer only game should be Free-to-Play, because the difference in budget MUST be huge. Try to defend the price tag. It’s about time that last gen support ceases.

          • Guywithbrains

            Well this is how I set price for every part of the game:

            – Campaign is worth 20 euros
            – Multiplayer is worth 40 euros
            – 3th mode is worth 10-15 euros

            So if you take out campaign it makes old gen version worth 50 euros. I could pay that much for game that is lacking single player campaign. However, if game is lacking online component such as multiplayer and/or any other modes it is worth 30 euros in my opinion.

            But everyone has a price they are ready to pay for a product. I understand if some people find this price tag too much.

          • GinsuVictim

            They are claiming Black Ops is free, so it shouldn’t even figure into the price.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Well, I completely disagree. I don’t claim to know a whole lot about the industry, so I’ll just talk out of my ass, real quick. Out of all of the three modes. I guarantee you that Multiplayer costs the least to make. It’s so cheap in comparison to other modes, that Activision could make BO3 F2P, if it didn’t include Zombies. CoD Online is an example I’ll use for my claim. If you ask me, well, the physical copies cost more to profit for the distribution, but I’d say that it’s $40 for the Campaign, F2P for the Multiplayer, and $20 for Zombies. It’s downright criminal to ask $60 from consumers for online-only games like Rainbow Six Siege.

            A last gen release is inexcusable. It hurts the current gen versions, in some way.

          • you degen

            i can’t believe you just listed zombies lower than campaign. degenerate

          • spartanelite

            Free to play you sound stupid for saying thatthat, if it were F2P all of the in game guns would cost money, IMO a more reasonable cost would be 40$,20 for MP and 20$ for zombies but they threw bo1 in there for 10,IMO if you never bought it that great but kinda dumb. If you don’t :l

          • Hermione Granger

            they had two teams… one for newgen and one for lastgen… so they could easily have given the lastgen team the older aw game engine to work with… so this is just half arsed planning by acti… all their excuses is bs.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            What? You’re getting a lesser product on last gen, there’s no argument. Last gen should die.

      • Danzzy

        You don’t have a clue what your talking about man. SHUT UP!

        • gtownsbadass

          Apparently you have no idea what you are talking about bc he is right last gen bo3 size 6.73gb bo2 size for ps3 about 25gb including all dlc. It all just boils down to activision to damn lazy and wanting to make a game look like crap on old gen to force ppl to upgrade.

          • Chandler Thomas

            I agree it is bs

      • Hermione Granger

        there is nothing holding back lastgen, it can be done without problems… its just activision that cant be arsed to do a proper job..

    • ItzSikh

      last gen was already revealed about months ago even vondy said that last gen would be there with just mp and zombies

      • Dangelo95

        I know it was confirmed back in June I never said it wasn’t I said they’re lucky they will get the game at all and said it should of never been made on PS3/360 cause something as major as campaign being out really shows last gen has had its run and it should just come to a end

        • That Sōma Tho

          Idk if you get how much money is in last gen for Activistion. They didn’t give them BO3 because they complained. They gave it to them because they can make millions. Activision is still a company at the end of the day..

        • and ps4 and xbox one shouldn’t get it because its holding back pc

    • Dallas Phillips

      Preach My Dude!

    • Why the fuck are people still calling current gen “next gen”. Current generation was launched almost 2 years ago.

    • Mobin Amanzai

      hear*

    • They wont just not do it next year. Theres too many people still playing and that is losing out on potential money.

    • Frank Rizzo

      Your grammar sucks.

      oh I’m sorry do you have three hundred and fortify four dollars just lying around to spend Willie nillie.,No? then fuck of

      • Nonya Concern

        Ps4 came out November 15th 2013. Thats about 104 weeks ago. You figure now the ps4 is 350 for the system with tax just around 380 or so. Then maybe you buy a 60 game and a year of playstation plus for 50. All in all about 500 roughly in total after taxs if you were to get just the system a year online membership and a new game. So lets just divide $500 by 104 (for amount of weeks since the ps4 release) thats less the $5 a week that if saved in that time youd have a ps4 by now.

    • SHARP SHOOTER

      Maybe u could suck a dick bitch because some people dont have money to buy shit rich muthafucka

      fuck you faggot

        Shut up your like 9

    • MrEclectic68

      Did you ever think that many people would love to go next gen but can’t afford to at this time and actually you arrogant jerk if it wasn’t for the last gen you wouldn’t even have next gen so you should be thankful for that but I think your biggest problem is that you need to learn how to be thankful and be thankful for what you have instead of ripping on the people who don’t have and blaming them for your misfortunes and remember karma is a bitch so don’t be surprised if after all your selfishness and lack of being thankful that you soon have a real reason to not be thankful and that being that you end up losing everything and have nothing left to be thankful for and one last thing why shouldn’t people who spent their hard earned money on a system and spent quite a bit get shafted cause of a new system but then again from the way you sound you probably never bought any of the games or system that you have yourself so you’d have no idea what I was talking about anyway!

      • Dangelo95

        This was two months ago dude if I offended you then sorry but it’s just frustrating that I own a current gem systems and most if not all the games are available on last gen…and I’m thankful for what I have so just don’t assume I’m not I was going to buy my own ps4 but I got surprised with one for Christmas I did not expect to get it and I literally buy all my games except around Christmas time I work and save my hard earned money for the stuff I have and in thankful.. I didn’t mean to offend anyone I can understand where you’re coming from and hopefully you can upgrade soon

    • Luis

      I dont want to be rude but you should shut the fuck up because you don’t know what is the people’s economy, I am lucky I have a good economy, but you should see other places. They don’t have enough money to even buy the ps4 or xbox one because of thdir government stealing all the money. So people complain because video games changed drastically to new generation without even minding what people do for a living. You are a selfish bitch.

    • Mason

      Some people can’t afford new stuff

      #2poor4nextgen

    • Wings

      I cant afford a new $350.00 Xbox One. I have school and other things in my life going on that I need money for, so for you to just tell people like me that I should just upgrade and stop complaining is like saying “Hey, I don’t give shit if you have money or not!” And plus there is not that much of a difference between Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Xbox One just has better graphics! That’s it! Its the same setup. So fuck you and every other spoiled rich twerp that has the “New Upgraded Console”.

    • TheAmazingWeirdo

      Maybe some people aren’t lucky enough to have the money for a next gen console.

  • CrazyWolf

    Good thing I’m on PC. Still…couldn’t they include campaign without co-op? Just saying…

  • xSilent-Commando

    Atleast we`re getting something that ONLY us with a PS4 (Myself), XB1 and PC are exclusively getting for BO3…

    The Campaign trailer will debut the 29th of September as I read a legit source this morning from the user “Treyarch” which will show 4 Players Co-Op Gameplay, 5-6 Different Missions, New Gadgets, New Abilities and Safehouse before a Mission begins!

  • LMFAO, WTF!

  • FazalGaming

    LMFAO last gen is getting butt fucked so hard!!!!

  • Duke of hazard

    At this point there is literally no point getting cod on last gen anymore. You’re practically getting half the features for $10 less. That’s a big, fat bowl of NOPE.

  • Midssquad

    Last gen takes an L this is the final blow to you freeloading losers. Go back to the welfare line where you belong

  • Drasadex

    LOL might as well cancel it at this point.

    • Kobrah

      They should never have started the port tbh

      • Drasadex

        They really shouldn’t have.

        Watch them cancel Zombies cuz it’s too resource-intensive for last-gen lol

  • Stefan Lang

    Lmao. I might as well get my girlfriend an Xbox One ?? she loves campaign.

  • Ryan

    What a shit reason lol. Bigger and better games manage to keep (most) features across both gens but CoD can’t?

  • Slothigans

    For us current gen users, this makes me even more excited for the campaign so it probably is on a huge scale.

  • dsdsds

    whats the point of releasing it on last gen if it wont have all the features. Money whore Activision

    • Guywithbrains

      Yeah I agree. It is so wrong to try to get so much money as possible from your consumer base. Because it is so wrong to make business and try to get profit.

      ^ But more seriously I think Activision and community knows every Call of Duty is bought a lot and usually it even breaks sales records on a yearly basis.

    • Keshav Bhat

      It’s because of this: you’d complain so much if this was PS4, Xbox One, and PC only, so to stop those from complaining they want to give whatever they can before the transition out of last-gen completely.

      • jordanxbrookes

        The only people that would complain are stubborn last-gen users who won’t move on. I just hope this is the last Call of Duty game to be on last-gen so we can see true current-gen Call of Duty games.

        • Guywithbrains

          If last-gen users are stubborn then current gen users are selfish simply because they only think about own needs and are making people to buy current gen consoles and by that way make their own purchase (current gen console) look worth it. But this attempt seems to fail miserably every time same people here try to do this (make people buy current gen console).

          • Siftblade

            When developers stop producing games for last gen, last gen will just be a brick that plays old games. Anybody who wants to play new games will have to upgrade eventually. It’s not the current gen users forcing your hand, it’s the developers. Idk about you, but I’d rather pay the ~$350 now and play games at their full potential, than to wait a year and buy it after already wasting money on games that could have been better had I upgraded sooner.

            I don’t care if people buy old gen version. I understand that money can’t be taken as granted because living can be expensive. Old gen consoles are still enjoyable although better hardware is available.

            It would be too stupid decision now to leave old gen behind. Activision knows they can get a lot of money if they keep old gen aboard. They know when the time is right to move on.

    • Nobody is asking you to buy it

      they won’t hold current gen if you have heard its only a different studio

    This was never intended to be released in PS3/360. It was a last minute decision by Activision.

  • Elvin menie

    I am on ps4. But this is why Activision are fucking cowards, They are advertising that bo3 on last gen will have all 3 modes. But campaign is not a big deal.

  • JoZer805g

    Black Ops didn’t started the series, that was World at War if your pay close attention to the campaign, just saying.

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      Close attention? Its obviously the beginning because of Reznov.

  • TheHorror

    Can’t say I’m too surprised, they had to do something to start phasing out last gen games. Had to happen eventually despite some people who believe the 360/PS3 is the end all be all. Looks like IWs next game just might be current gen only.

  • A bit far, eh?

  • PS4MasterRaceIn1080p60ps

    Time to upgrade peasants! Surprised the Xbox One version has the campaign too as that console is about as weak as the 360.

    • Danny Hargreaves Kernot

      lol …. no console runs at a consistent 60 fps 24 7 and the xb1 has alot of power just not as much as the ps4. also. the games made will not utilise all that power anyway from the consoles. cant tell if troll or you just dont know the specs of the xb1 in comparison to the 360 ….

      • PS4MasterRaceIn1080p60ps

        That’s just what Activision’s marketing department says – it’s not been proven. Even Battlefield 4 only ran at 700p and 30fps on the XB1 which was standard back in 2008. I don’t think the One has seen one game run in full HD yet.

        • Danny Hargreaves Kernot

          well at 720p or 1080 you will barely notice the difference either way. and without an fps counter you will never truly know the fps your getting. now on pc on the other hand it tells you your fps for games but honestly both consoles wont stick to 60 fps all the time. there will be a bottleneck in there for either platform

          • FazalGaming

            To be honest though if your used to 1080p then switch to 720p it looks utter shit. I had a 1080p TV but it broke so I bought a “HD” TV to then realise by HD they meant 720p and it looks so shitty compared to 1080p before.

          • Danny Hargreaves Kernot

            i do have a 1080 monitor but to most people it probably wont be noticeable but some games just look bad in 1080 either way so 720 for some can be better ive noticed when ive seen them which is kinda stupid ….

  • GinsuVictim

    After five years on 360, I finally bought a new console…..a PS3. I have no problem with this news, since I usually don’t play campaign anyway.

    • LovekillerX

      PS3 is actually still very enjoyable console although I have PS4. I play PS3 more often because I don’t see so many good games on PS4 yet.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        You mean you haven’t seen many good SHOOTERS on PS4, yet? There are plenty of good games out, and coming out, on the system. Bloodborne is the best exclusive this generation has to offer, at the moment.

        • LovekillerX

          Nope I meant good games generally but this is just my opinion. I have never cared about Bloodborne/Dark souls for example. I’m waiting for Uncharted 4, God of War (they are developing it), Ratchet and Clank reboot, Star Wars Battlefront and many other good games. I think PS4 gets its true glory between 2016-2017 (not that it isn’t achieved any of its glory this far).

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I don’t understand the thought process of modern gamers. I would highly recommend Bloodborne over those other games any day of the week. We need to push out of our comfort zones and at least try different experiences. I didn’t think that I would like Bloodborne, either, but playing that game solidified my belief of it being the best ever exclusive released this generation so far. Instead of playing the same generic Shooters over and over again (especially ones stuck in a paywall by EA and Activision), I would much rather invest my time into games with more replayability like JRPG’s (i.e. Bloodborne and Star Ocean). Shooters are a tired genre and I moved on from them. But that’s just my opinion.

      • Brad of Duty

        what good games other than old call of dutys are out on ps3 that are still worth playing?

    • Brad

      You’re retarded

      • ChaosVortex

        Not really, he gets a new selection of games at (at least) half the price of the current gen systems, most of which have been played, tested, and patched so they’re working. It’s actually a very sound decision, especially with the nonsense these companies are doing lately.

        • Brad of Duty

          Whoo! Little Big Planet! How exciting. PS3 was a shit console too smh

          • ChaosVortex

            Yeah, cause little big planet is the only game that came out on PS3, right? Take your meds and have a nap

          • The Goblinator

            You sound like someone that is butt hurt because they can’t afford a $400 console in 2 years. There are no old gen games worth playing now are you out of your fucking mind

          • ChaosVortex

            1) I was smart enough to buy a gaming PC instead(and I could buy both consoles no problem, they just don’t hold enough value right now, for me anyway)
            2) I never said there weren’t any gems( I actually stated there are in another comment)

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            PS3 is arguably the best console ever made. Although it’s a bit of a bold claim, because I love gaming in general, but still.

          • spartanelite

            Ps3 the best? uhhh naaaa lol

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Xbox 360 (I own one) had social integration, but didn’t excel in the games department, imo. PS3 has many great exclusives and can be backwards compatible with PS2 (and I think PS1, as well) games. It’s a bold claim, but I stand by it. The SNES, N64, GameCube, PS1, PS2, and the original Xbox all come close. It’s hard to choose.

          • spartanelite

            Xbox had great games but most were multiplayer and ps3 had great single player games people have to give it that,it depends mainly on what you like and the 360 had backwards comp for a time but then removed it :l

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The point about BC was the exact point that I was making. I don’t think Multiplayer gaming is anything special.

          • spartanelite

            Really? IMO a mix of both is always the best but I always prefer multiplayer

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It has oversaturated the market. Now gamers bitch when they don’t get it, which is retarded.

      • GinsuVictim

        I don’t see anything “retarded” about it.

            But you sure can’t make a decent decision like an adult.

          • GinsuVictim

            I made the adult decision to be financially responsible and not move on to the current gen yet. There is more on PS3 I want to play (mostly free, thanks CFW….and I still have a huge 360 backlog) than is currently out on PS4 / Xbox One.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Were you still playing PS2 last gen?

          • GinsuVictim

            I’m still playing PS2 now. I still own every console I’ve had since Atari 2600.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Lucky bastard. I lost my PS2 and GameCube. Still have a couple of older systems like SNES, GameBoy Pocket/Color, N64, and an AtGames Sega Genesis, recently.

        • goose

          for a hundred dollars more you could have had a new console with all the new shit

          • GinsuVictim

            I didn’t buy a new PS3. The price difference was way more than a hundred.

    • Stealthninja808

      Well enjoy ps3 exclusives, because your missing out on pretty much every thing else.
      –just save money for a PS4 ?

      • GinsuVictim

        I won’t miss out on anything. Those games will still be there when I buy a PS4 in a few years.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          You’ll just be playing games at non-stable frame rates. Everybody should be upgrading in 2016. The PS3 is one of the best consoles ever, but it won’t last us a FEW years. Maybe one or two tops.

          • GinsuVictim

            I don’t care about new stuff, I’m catching up on old stuff I couldn’t play on 360.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            360 doesn’t have a whole lot of exclusives to choose of.

          • GinsuVictim

            Quite a few, but nothing like all the ones I’m about to play on PS3.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            PS3 is the better console, to me. Even though it’s slow, o think you’ll love it. Let me know if you need something to play.

            There’s a pretty decent visual difference, especially in terms of first party PS4 games. Specs could be the main selling point, and it’s one of the reasons why the PS4 is dominating.

            I never acted like I was smarter or better. It’s awesome that there are new consoles and people enjoy playing them. I’ll be there in a few years when the games I want come out. For now, I’m enjoying the games that are already out.

          • Brad of Duty

            You don’t need to play every game that has ever been released how muchfucjing time do you have? That’s also impossible you can’t play everything might as well get a good running console by the time you buy a ps4 the ps5 will be out lmao you make no sense

      • Raul Lugo

        yeah saving money for some ppl can be hard,

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Doesn’t mean it’s not a bad thing. The game should be half off for last gen users. The Campaign is where a lot of the budget was put into. You’re, essentially, paying for half of the content you’d have gotten if you got a PS4, instead.

      • GinsuVictim

        Oh, I plan on waiting for a sale. $25 is what I’m looking to pay.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Not everyone uses common sense when buying something. Many just can’t wait to buy games.

        • darren

          You act like buying a console or a game is like buying a car. It just doesn’t make sense to me.
          You act like you know how it all is, even though you don’t own one.

          • GinsuVictim

            The game will go on sale. Why buy it full price if they aren’t going to sell a full game? That’s simple logic. You don’t make sense.

    • Kobrah

      Excuse my ignorance but I don’t see the logic in getting a PS3 over a PS4 when you already have a x360?

      • GinsuVictim

        Exclusives I missed out on, which are all really cheap now. (Also, CFW)

  • ben wills

    As a PC player, this is complete horseshit.

    • Kobrah

      Why? Don’t you want the full game and support from Treyarch?

      • ben wills

        ?????

        Treyarch isn’t making the backward versions. Can’t even start to comprehend what the hell you’re talking about

        LAST GEN PLAYERS ARE GETTING SCREWED OUT A CAMPAIGN. It’s stupid. And apparently unlike you, I’m able to see injustice even when it doesn’t affect me.

        • Kobrah

          You made it sound like you were jealous of last gen players lol. And I play on PS4 so it doesn’t affect me either…

            Empathy isn’t close to the same as jealousy.

          • Kobrah

            Yes, I misinterpreted me meaning of your comment

  • Ryan Collewijn

    atleast if they pre ordered the game they get money back and also the new players can play old black ops style and give the servers a boost and that means More people to knife on gun game haha still they should have not anounced it for last gen just holding back with the mp server.

  • Pessysquad

    Praise God…. Only have to spend 49$ to get my beloved zombies! Haha!

    • The Flash

      to get your 1 zombies map

  • Iso kid

    Back when they anounced last gen versions they specified some of the diferences
    1-no 4 player only 2 player co op campaign
    2The painshop featured being only for next gen

    Its fine most of you don’t play campaign
    But if they give us a dumbed down multiplayer and zombies experience with no dlc treatment they are just grabbing your money
    I still think they should drop the price to 40$
    If they aren’t gonna put multiplayer and zombies dlc
    And don’t come with that last gen cant handle
    All of the AW DLC map packs were included and they work great
    They can include DLC and 2 guns just like all of the dlc since ghosts
    Then leave the other weapon packs for next gen
    Don’t play us activision

    • Kobrah

      Drop the price because they won’t get DLC? Thats why the DLC costs extra, so it doesn’t affect the price of the game

  • Yikes. This is the weirdest decision Activision has ever made, to keep supporting last gen like this…makes me wonder if Activision will finally decide next year to stop supporting last gen, like Ubisoft did.
    At least Treyarch’s focus is on current gen consoles.

  • Michael Romo

    They should at least make the game half price for about half the experience. I feel bad for last gen users

    • shadowguy14

      Nobody is forcing them to buy it though.

  • Michael Romo

    Upgrading to next gen ain’t worth it right now. There like 4 games you could play: Cod/Battlefield, GTA, NBA2k/Madden, and like a few games that don’t have sequels yet

    • You really think that’s all the next gen games? Dude, you must not follow the video game industry. The 8th generation is nearly two years old. Many games have been made for it.

    • shadowguy14

      Wolfenstein New Order and Old Blood? Shooting Nazis not good enough for you?

      • GinsuVictim

        I played New Order on 360.

    • The Flash

      plus Watchdogs

  • Ryumoau

    Without campaign, i feel they should have knocked this version down to $30. I honestly can’t see why people would want this watered down version, even if you only have ps3/360.

    The one possible good news from all this is that this could mean the campaign is even larger than we’ve had before. It would be awesome to finally have a CoD campaign that lasted at least 10 hours. 🙂

    • ScOott

      I agree although I’m not holding my breath. I reckon they watering it down to save money.. Less time they spend making the game the more money they save, I find it to strange that every other game can have 3 game modes.. You could even run open world games on last gen, I don’t get how all of a sudden they can’t fit a story mode on there ..

      • WhiskeyDick

        Lol well the could fit an open world story mode there, but as you noted… There’s plenty of money saved having not ported the campaign, and they still tack on that $60 price tag, they profit greatly for anyone dumb enough to buy this on old gen. I’m hoping consumers aren’t dumb enough to to buy this for old gen…. But there’s a large population there still, so it looks pretty grim

      • just drank bleach

        That’s what I was thinking as well, in the past last gen was able to have huge open world games and such and all of a sudden the 360 or ps3 can’t get the campaign? Me thinks that xbox and ps4 came to treyarch and told them ” listen, we need more sales for the ps4 and xbones, how about you take away campaign for last gen.”

    • RdJokr

      The only reason why they’re charging $50 is because of the “free” Black Ops 1 code.

      • Ryumoau

        thats a shame since i would think a majority of players getting BO3 have already played the previous games or aren’t interested in going back that far.

        • The Flash

          i love my BO1, i wish next gen buyers of BO3, get a free remastered copy of BO1 for use with Xbone – that would make much more sense then on last gen where many people already have it.

          • Ryumoau

            i wish ps4 had the ability to play older titles, since i would also like to play BO1 on there.

          • The Flash

            PS4 would be cool too, BC wise i doubt Xbone will get any CODs unfortunately

        • RdJokr

          Every COD is someone’s first COD. Black Ops 2 Digital Deluxe Edition came with an extra code for World at War, so it’s no surprise that they would do this.

  • Mikey9835

    Thank god I upgraded to PS4. What the hell are Activision thinking? If you advertise a game for pre order, you should tell the consumer what they’re about to purchase. Releasing half a game for $50? Unacceptable. My advice to anyone interested in buying this for last gen: Don’t. Save up for a ps4 or xbone. I might be whining, but I have good reason too, people are getting conned by Activision. The only reason they made the game for last gen is so they could get more money cash monies. They would have been better sticking to current gen only, at least then they would have kept their dignity intact.
    Rant over. You may return to your everyday lives.

  • ToonToons22

    I agree on how they should at least lower the price of the game if it’s just multiplayer and zombies with no campaign, but they won’t; Activision is going to sell half a game for about the same price as a full next-gen game just to squeeze the money out of the people who still play last-gen.

    Save the money and upgrade to PS4 or Xbox One for the full experience. When it comes to Black Ops 3, it’s Next-Gen or Nothing.

    • Definitely. They should do the right thing and sell it for a couple of quid for last generation cling ons.

      • darren

        Nah. Activision should have listened to Treyarch, and not made it at all for last gen. I hope this is the last year they release new games on last-gen consoles.

  • Guest

    This obviously goes to show that the game was not fit enough to be put on last gen consoles but they did it any way for that money… They obviously could have made the multiplayer much better but they had to dumb it down so it was still playable for the last gen. But they didnt dumb down the campaign because that is the least played gamemode of the series.

    • arcengine

      the mp portion of the game is far from being dummed down on current gen. last minute decision by activision to release is on last gen.

  • arcengine

    as for campaign, get ready for a total mind fuck. this game is going gold shorty

  • shadowguy14

    I know Campaign isn’t really important for people of COD, but you need to play through it at least once to understand Multiplayer. Not including it in the game seems like a no brainier “DON’T BUY ME!!” to me, but whatever last gen users.

    • GinsuVictim

      Playing against bots is all you need to understand mp.

  • Brad

        choosing to get a terrible experience. ok.

        • GinsuVictim

          I’m not buying a new console just because of one game. In 2018, there will be enough of the games I’m waiting for on PS4 to justify buying one.

          • .. by which time the PS5 will be out.. LOL. I swear do some people still watch TV in black and white or..?

          • GinsuVictim

            PS5 definitely won’t be out that quick.

      • Brad of Duty

        why are you going around and seem to be bragging about being stuck in the past? That makes no sense to want an inferior product

        • GinsuVictim

          I don’t WANT an inferior product, but if it’s all I can have at the moment, I’ll take it. As long as the multiplayer is good enough, I’ll be happy. I’m not buying it right away, so there will be time for reviews and patches.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        That was a joke comment (I’m no troll, though). Honestly, always online will always be anti-gamer. It’s upsetting.

        • GinsuVictim

          It will surely have bots and spilt-screen, so it’s got the offline features I want.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You cannot play it offline, I think, but IDK for sure.

          • GinsuVictim

            It’s a Black Ops game, it will have bots.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I know it will. I’m saying that even bots will require an internet connection. “Always Online” doesn’t also mean “some offline.”

          • GinsuVictim

            Bots / split-screen won’t require online. Mark my words.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I will. I hope your statement is true when the facts arrive. There’s no guarantees.

          • The great one

            GinsuVictim are you sure it said “that the box art states that in order to play black ops 3 an internet connection is required”.

    This year I played AW in last gent PS3 only because my clan did not jump to current gen, it was bad having to deal with the half assed porting! but thanks to it we are all getting the BO3 limited edition PS4 bundle this year. Can’t wait!

  • Alfin

    this breaks my heart

  • imBATMAN

    Now hopefully last gen can move on to current gen so they can stop holding us back. There’s a rumor (or confirmed) that microsoft is turning of xbox 360 servers in 2016, there’ll either be a spike in xbox one console sales or they lose all or the majority of 3 shitty.

    • GinsuVictim

      That rumor is completely wrong. The 360 servers are used for backward compatibility on Xbox One. You’re confusing the news about the indie games being shut down.

      • imBATMAN

        ah

    • The Flash

      The Xbox 360 Live servers are the same used for Xbox One so thats BS (and yeah what they said with BC)

      • imBATMAN

        ah

  • OMG its AliA

    Why are people on last gen complaining. They are lucky they are getting the game at all. Also this was all due to hardware limitations so it is not Activision’s fault.

    • GinsuVictim

      Most of the negative posts are coming from people on current gen.

  • James Martin

    Don’t know why people on last Feb don’t just upgrade to next gen, kids could ask for them for Christmas and adults, well £329 is less than a weeks work for most people, just save £100 a week and in a month you’ll have the new consoles, people on last gen keep buying new games that cost £40, just don’t keep buying games and upgrade… I know some people struggle for money but £329 is handily breaking the bank

    • GinsuVictim

      Everyone’s financial situation isn’t the same. There are many things that take priority over a new gaming system.

      • Kobrah

        Like new games?

        • GinsuVictim

          Because buying a game on sale and buying a new console are totally in the same price range.
          Think, then post.

      • DEMOLITION12

        rofl but you’ll spend the money on shit last gen games

        • GinsuVictim

          So, they were great games, now they’re shit? What changed?

          • DEMOLITION12

            did you even read this article you moron?

          • GinsuVictim

            I’m talking about the games that came out over the lifespan of the PS3. Guess I have to spell it out for you.

  • aymn

    Rip ps3 and Xbox 360 2007-2015

  • This is just me, but if the last gen port has 2/3 of the modes, that’s only a 66% offering. As a result, shouldn’t the cost of the game be $40 or less?

    • Joshwoocool

      It also comes with a digital copy of black ops

      • GinsuVictim

        That is listed as a free bonus, so it shouldn’t figure in.

      • I know, but I still don’t think that’s enough to merit a $50 price. The game is very old and the multiplayer isn’t well supported (due to the low population).

  • Yankeephil

    This pretty much guarantees that BO3 will be the last new COD on PS3 or 360

  • Hermione Granger

    what a bunch of bs… they could have just stuck to the blkops2 game
    engine and done the campaign. the asking price for the online
    only version is also laughable, they should include the season pass in that
    $49.99 price point. here we yet again see activision just want to cash
    in without any effort…

    • Aidan

      You are an imbecile…

      • Hermione Granger

        if anyone is a imbecile here its clearly you..

        • Aidan

          Why is that?

          • Hermione Granger

            because only an imbecile like you would ask why, lol…

          • Aidan

            I asked why because i don’t know what I did.

    • Issam Nasiri

      I have a PS3 and you are right activision just wants money !
      Think it’s time to buy a PS4 🙂

      • Hermione Granger

        i will be waiting for the ps4 slim…

    • Yankeephil

      Season pass ? I don’t even think last gen is getting DLC

  • Danzzy

    Maybe there is a zombies campaign after all, why else wouldn’t there be campaign mode. Has to be something extra last gen will get too like a secret zombies story or map ?

  • Diego Medina

    Ca we dowload dlcs for ps3?

  • Raul Lugo

    CoD is shit.

    • GinsuVictim

      And yet….here you are.

      • Raul Lugo

        because im curious about the reaction of the old gen people, Activision must be dying to release such an incomplete game.

        • GinsuVictim

          “CoD is shit” says nothing about old gen.

          • Raul Lugo

            yes it says, AW Bad port for PS3 & X360 users, CoD is clearly shit in both generations. micro payments everywhere.

    • Raul Lugo is shit

      Fuck off spic cunt.

      • Raul Lugo

        Make me

      • Raul Lugo

        kid is mad, how many dreams you have.

      • Raul Lugo

        also 10/10 nice block dumbass

  • RΛJΞΣV

    PS3: 5 years ago I lost 3 million users to play on my platform, and the world just fuckin’ watched, tomorrow there will be no more shortages of console wars, no more next gen, I know you understand. *points gun at PS4*

  • Clamp

    Last gens have still something to give and they still can make a good games for older platforms. I know that time will come and it will be only crap to play on old consoles, but this shoudlnt looks like that. Why to cut the game from story mode? Better to cancel whole and have peace. Everyone who want to play game just buy it on PC or PS4/XO for the ful price. This pla with gamers is not good and unfair. CI Games done it right. Right forom the start they sad that next big game will be only for nextgens and they don’t want to go back. So everyone one was informed that they sad go”Goodbye” to the pastgen. That was fair i think that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be one of the most aniticiped games in next year.

  • Marquise Mason

    Who would won’t bo1 for a damn bonus download load I had high hope for yall , yall just trying to keep the price up to $49.99 for we already don’t have campaign, so yall trying to say yall trying to replace campaign for some old ass bo1 really come on now.

  • Marquise Mason

    I don’t care what yall say but I “THINK” old Gen should pay for campaign well that’s what I think I don’t won’t bo1 it’s just go be seating In my downloads collecting dust.

  • camtheman

    I dnt understand why connection to internet is required no complaints here I’m just glad they thought about motherfuckers that ain’t been able to upgrade yet. (Ha-ha we ain’t all spoiled lol jk kids) so that’s what’s up they even made those sorts of big changes this late in its development so all props to em for even making it compatible wit last gen consoles cuz dnt think I’ll be able to afford upgraded to next gen till prolly next year lol but if any one knows the legit reason it need internet access please post I’m just curious how it work

    • The great one

      Yeah I was wondering the same thing dude it doesn’t make sense why would someone need internet to play a game unless they want to play online.

    • The great one

      Yeah I was wondering the same thing dude it doesn’t make sense. why would someone need internet connection to play a game unless they want to play online.

  • Kyle James Winters

    thats fine if they are gonna cut the campain out, not giving the zombies dlc no way in hell am i gonna pay. 69.99$ for 1 zombies map only reason why i was gonna buy this game

  • Kyle James Winters

    like hell the power pc g5 cant handel zomibes mode, BS

  • The great one

    Can someone explain the part where it says the box art states that in order to play black ops 3 on last Gen and internet connection is required. Does it mean that they can’t play offline with bots nor offline zombieS or what?

  • Michael

    this is what last gen gamers get, its called save your money and get a new console i mean nothing against last gen they had a good run but its time to move on 10 years was more than generous for ps3 and 360

  • Luke24

    So do you need internet on the ps3 to be able to play offline like multiplayer and zombies
    Because i do not have oline on my ps3.

  • Chandler Thomas

    They can’t put campaign on ps3 and other stuff this bull they are being to lazy to make all of it on ps3 and xbox360

  • CDS Mutt

    Will the last gen be getting any more zombies maps? Or will they only have the one map?

  • Wcs Interiors

    I don,t agree with the no campaign mode, we have just purchased a game we now cannot use, thanks activision for runining my kids christmas thanks a lot, great move ( NOT ).

    This is just a way of them using policy to manipulate as usual to get you to go out and upgrade to buy a new ps4, just like windows software does in the same way.

    BS SONY, you making a big hole for your self.

    people will start to turn there back on you, going down this route. We purchase games to play on our machines straight out the box, not to duped by some carefully written in script. This just ruining gaming over all.

    I just sold CALL OF DUTY BLK OPS 3.

    IF YOU CAN,T BE ARESED TO DELIVER AFTER ALL THAT HYPE ON TV AND THE FANCY PANTS TV ADS AND THIS IS THE END RESULT.

    THEN WE CAN,T BE ARSED TO BUY YOUR GAMES ANY MORE,

    BAD MOVE ON THIS GAME.

  • Chaz

    I am complaining about the fact campaign is not included with the old generation versions because Activision will never even try to patch it in if the community doesn’t ask for it. All I want is an unambitious version of the campaign included even if its only available for 1 player, because COD needs a story with some heart to keep emotion based gamers from straying from the franchise. And no, I ain’t got the cash to upgrade to next gen.

  • Wcs Interiors

    In my opinion they should of let the ps3 platform gamers, buy the campaign mode black ops 3. They already sold us 1 and 2. now my kid is highly dissapointed well done sony great move, just another salesman at work yet again. You could of started from say a new game ie call of duty ******* 1 of a different version, instead of doing this over have way through a triilogy. You runied my kids christmas celebrations, not cool sony not at all.

  • fabio

    will there be a campaign for xbox 360 in the future?

  • Gamer36164

    I think the internet required is for the black ops download code

  • Allen garner

    That is the companies loss because I can guaranty therfe are more people with last gen consle then next gen consils it is just a loss in sales on black ops 3 because they made it look bad which will hurt their reputation eventually as great game developer’s and make most of last gen gamers not want to play black ops 3.

  • Amy P. Ludwick

    I would love to upgrade to the PS4. But I don’t have the money. Like many this year, it has been rough. I don’t have the money to spare for an upgrade. I was so excited when I saw the first commercial for BO3. Then I received it as a christmas gift only to notice it had no campaign mode. I’m pissed my family spent $45 for crap. I have Playstation in my blood and then to have one of my favorite games say screw you you can’t have the full version but we’ll take your money. I’m sure the ps3 hardware is out dated. They spent so much money advertising the game. They could have took some time to let customers know they were not releasing the full game to the older gens. I am very sad that I probably won’t be able to play BO3 because I can’t afford a PS4.

  • Angry gamer

    What the F man ppl are expecting something good on last gen so the get and its sh*t the whole point of cod is not just MP and Zombies instead they give you a sh*ty old game when we are expecting something better well done activision well **ucking done you’ve just made ppl not want to buy any of your products because now we know your to lazy to finish the job
