YouTubers have posted a full comparison of the last-gen and current-gen versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 today. As noted, the last-gen version of Black Ops 3 doesn’t have a campaign, and the performance is lacking as well.

In addition, the back of the box art on the last-gen versions of Black Ops 3 don’t have any in-game images, rather showing off concept art. The current-gen versions have in-game screenshots. Here’s a pic from @VG_Dave:

Here’s a video comparing Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions:

    Old gen doesn’t look that bad anymore.

    Anyway only 6 hours to go in my country!

    • LovekillerX

      First it looked so bad but in this comparison I had second thoughts. But anyway I’m few hours away from launch!

  • KK5

    LOL, love that I got my PS4 this summer

    • Ron Reus

      I feel you. Got mij xbone last august 🙂

      • KK5

        Pretty good investment looking at it now, right?

  • Can we see Golden Eye or Halo 1 compared to BO3 Last Gen graphics? My lord….

  • jordanxbrookes

    Still looks awful on last-gen lmao.

    • tuby

      Who cares we have current gen. But it look pretty similar at other cods on last gen

      • jordanxbrookes

        It looks far worse than the older CoDs on last-gen.

        • Tuby

          Thats not my opinion. It looks a bit worse. But who csres in the first place er have currrent gen. I grind today for first prestige

    • HenryDF

      Somehow looks worse than all the last-gen CoDs I played. The devs who dealt with last gen didn’t even have Campaign to deal with but they still managed to make what seems to be the worst last-gen CoD in terms of visuals in long time.

      • Rolocker

        The graphics seem worse because they were also trying to stuff in all the features, maps, and mechanics. Albeit they still got rid of a lot of stuff.

        • T.E.D.

          nope, all the new mechanics require almost no processing power, but the game was remade (not by treyarch) for last gen so they had to remove almost all image effects and anti aliasing + the fact that the game was made for current gen but the publisher (activision) wanted more money, the team who worked on the last gen version had very little time and room to optimize the game so they just cut whatever lowered the FPS.

  • banerising

    Honestly looks decent for 10 year old hardware. Current gen should have been way more advanced but looks much better.

    • CoD4 even looked better, like what are you saying? lul

      • OpinionsAreFrownedUpon

        cod 4 is graphically impaired.

  • mr erwin

    I have no performance issues on ps3. It aint that bad. But i get my ps4 over 14 says and want to play the game earlier. And its common sensor that current gen looks better then last gen. Thats the reason i will buy a ps4 also full 60 fps

    • mr erwin

      Sense

    • banerising

      common sensor?

      • mr erwin

        Auto correction on my phone must be common sense

        • banerising

          Gotcha

          • mr erwin

            No you dont. Also says must be days

          • banerising

            Cool, gotcha.

          • mr erwin

            Ok cool faggit

          • banerising

            lol I was just saying I understand what you mean.

          • Mr erwin

            OK my bad

    • GinsuVictim

      I’m playing the PS3 version and call bullshit on your no performance issues claim. I’ve already detailed the problems with this port.

      • mr erwin

        I havent that much. Not more then Any other release of cod.there will come patches just like Any other cod achter the launch I only play it because Imust wait for my birthday present. At least you can play the game on last gen. Just have had a 24 gun streak

        • mr erwin

          Ok I must admit that there were some older cods with less issue. But its still playable.

      • mr erwin

        Aw was also bad at launch on ps 3

        • GinsuVictim

          At least in AW the bots shot at you if you shot at them. Not in BO3 last gen. If they don’t see you, they ignore you.

          • Mr erwin

            True I guess. I never played bots in aw. I mean the MP had also some issues at the start and some weeks afther that. But I find bo 3 playable on PS 3 but that dont mean I prefer currrent gen versions.

  • Eddie Tupy

    from far away bo3 on 360 looks playable

  • Adam

    Can you post a full pic of the back of the XB1 case?

  • Lords Realms Email

    First one to say FIRST!!!!!!

  • bird

    Holy LOL

  • PS4MASTERRACEIN108060fps

    Looks terrible on the old gen but doesn’t look that great on the Xbox One either! PS4 FTW!

    • nathan

      ps4 and xbox1 graphics are like the same if anything xbox 1 is a bit better

  • Aceshigh87

    I knew last gen would look bad but this is just sad. Visuals aren’t all that matters in a game for sure but these just look unfinished compared to their current gen counterparts.

    Here’s hoping that this is the last CoD on last gen. It’s getting pathetic now. I know not everyone can afford to upgrade but it’s pretty clear they are sacrificing a lot (campaign, graphics, performance) just to have the old consoles supported.

    • tuby

      When current gen dont look better then last gen we have a problem.Excited for 2night and play the entire night

  • Mikey9835

    Coming from the same hardware generation that bought us the last of us and L.A noire, this is just sad. There are less pixels in the ps3/360 versions then there are braincells in anyone who bought this version.

  • Ryumoau

    Yeah….i feel really bad for last gen. In some ways this game looks worse than CoD titles from the last couple years. But the few scenes of gameplay they showed made it seem like it at least plays well.

  • Ak74u

    It looks like a wii version

  • RobMelchor

    Graphics look bad, on top of that no story mode and limited DLC’s… Last gen needs to be put to rest already.

  • Clash

    Oh so horrible.

  • goose

    i wonder if next year they’ll just pull the plug and only support current gen consoles. the moment that happens is the same moment you could buy last gen consoles for $99

    • GinsuVictim

      They pretty much pulled the plug on this release. There won’t be a last gen CoD next year.

  • Ak74u

    Is there any that compares all of them? Xbox 360, Xbox one, PS3 and ps4

  • EJ

    You sure some of those aren’t stills of Black ops 2

    • GinsuVictim

      No, black ops 2 looks better.

      • EJ

        So true lol, fine can we call it Black ops wii edition?

        • FazalGaming

          Even the wii edition looked better.

          • nathan

            no

          • nathan

            just no

  • Cyborg-jones

    Am going to buy it and still with my ps3 i dont care about the graphics.

    • urclades

      youre also missing 50% of the rest of the game

      • Cyborg-jones

        That not a big problem for me

    • Savage-Reaper

      Me too Add Me: BOSS_MANN_TONY

      • Cyborg-jones

        This is my psn too : Cyborgjones-12 send me a request am not with my console for now i will accept it soon 🙂

    • jordanxbrookes

      Then you’re a fool.

      • Cyborg-jones

        Here a ps4 price is 750$ am not a fool am Just someone Who dont want to spend so much money for a new console for now am with my ps3

    • spartanelite

      The things is its not just graphics at this point anymore you could say that for ghost, and maybe pass on the DLC weapon’s in AW but your literally missing the story and the DLC paint shop,gunsmith ect but keep saying your still just missing out on graphics

      • Cyborg-jones

        I know That the paint Shop ins’t in last but the gunsmith is in. I will watch the walkthrought campaign made by youtubers That not a big problem for me i have also shadow of evil That enought for me.

        • spartanelite

          Tf that’s not acceptable at all its just overall worst for 10 extra dollars its not worth and its not 60 fps either this Cod is probably the last major release on last gen

          • Cyborg-jones

            As i sad i will play like this. I know That it the last cod for last gen but am not a fool others games on ps3 like gtaV Destiny mkx or dragon Ball xv have small different with the ps4 except the graphics and some update but here in bo3 they want to liying us That the ps3 Cant handle bo3 performance That a joke even aw looks better than this seriosly

          • spartanelite

            They canceld mkx on ps3,I think they stopped updating GTA V,I don’t think destiny is getting DLC anymore either…do you get how technology works its not just graphics anymore,all the dlc guns in AW got cut as well,its not a lie the only lie is you liying to your self

          • Cyborg-jones

            Yeah they stopped updating GTA V but That not my problem m’y problem is That they want to lie us that the ps3 is a peace of shit gta graphics doesnt look like à shit Destiny too they canceled mkx for ps3 WUT !? I dont even know That anyway ps3 is not a ps1 they want us to move in current gen That why they do this guys you mean That a ps3 have not enough performance to have a little season pass !? What a lie

          • spartanelite

            Because they’re really stretching out how much stuff they’re putting into it ,they sacrificed a lot of things for other’s and obviously last gen people don’t care about graphics or preformace you got a game that looks like shit and runs like shit but at least you guys got Shadow’s of evil and all the regular multiplayer maps

          • Cyborg-jones

            Yup that enought for us

          • spartanelite

            Then your clueless and lost,I looked up game play for last gen and that had me laughing for a solid 30 seconds because I found it funny that they bought a piss poor port of a game they were told is and was going to be terrible and still thought it was a good idea that it was going to be the same and still complain why this version isn’t the same as next gen and complain they can’t afford a new console because its only for “rich people” and still cry about it when you could of possibly saved it

      • Goofy

        Fucking the campaign never played it

    • MaxwellJohn15

      Amen to that. I am going to buy it for ps3 as well.

    • jooker-jr

      30 fps …

      • Cyborg-jones

        I dont care

        • jooker-jr

          You sure ? Because this is the 1st cod on consoles to have 30 fps.

          • Cyborg-jones

            I will buy a ps4 soon but now i have no choice to play it in my ps3

          • jooker-jr

            While its up to you, IMO don’t get it on last gen, you said that you gonna get a ps4 soon, even if you gonna get it after 3 months, IMO wait, you gonna play a very downgraded version of the game.

          • Cyborg-jones

            Yeah but waiting for 3 months it like 1 year for me XD

          • jooker-jr

            IMO it does worth it, but it’s just me, do what you’re comfortable with, and the price of the game will get a lot lower.

          • Cyborg-jones

            Yup

  • Drink Bleach

    Lmao! So fake!

    • GinsuVictim

      Fake?

      • Drink Bleach

        Yeah…fake, look at the first map they showed, looked decent. Then the other maps the youtuber modded them from minecraft or something lmao!

        • GinsuVictim

          Looks like shit, not fake.

          • Drink Bleach

            So you still gonna pirate the game?

          • GinsuVictim

            Yep, I’m playing it now. Laggiest shitfest ever.

          • Mr erwin

            I dont expire that much lag. I can still go totally ham. But only play it because I need to wait for about 13 days before I can get my PS 4.

  • Adavanter Mki

    Wow… that… that’s bad even for 360 games. BO2 looks better than that. It did not translate well to last gen at all.

    • GinsuVictim

      In the hands of a competent team though….

    • CoDforever

      bo2 was one of the best 60 fps looking games on last gen

  • Jinathin

    half assed work is real here

    like BO2 on PS3 looked miles better than this

    • jooker-jr

      Because treyarch put every resources they had to build bo2, now they gave the ps4, Xbox one, and PC ( which are more important )

      • Jinathin

        Pc versions has lots of issues atm so….

        • jooker-jr

          Which is the weird thing…

  • Jay Evan

    the 360 version looks like the pre-pre-pre-pre-alpha of the game

    • Kobrah

      Looks as if it is from when they were just testing the concept for the new movement mechanics

  • I really don’t understand how this game can look so bad when AW, Ghosts, BO2, and basically all the last gen CoDs looked decent.

  • Pahom

    I think it’s only fair to have a moment of silence for every sucker that got this game for Xbox 360 and PS3.

  • FazalGaming

    Guys the real reason the graphics are more worse than other previous gen cods because they had to fit in other things. If they made the graphics same as AW on last gen then probably 99% of the game would have to be taken out.

  • Azir,ShurimasOvernerfedEmperor

    ok u can see at 3:00 that xbox 360 is better colored 😀

  • nathan

    i know from experience that the graphics on xbox 360 arent that bad they are just over exaggerating it and i’ve seen the one version and they are both a lot more similar in graphics compared to the given images so yeah think about that next time you post complaint comments because they blured the graphics or they have one messed up t.v./monitor/system

  • Stephen Dodd

    also the graphics on 360 are worse than the ps3, and the settings are set to they worst they can get e.g. Brightness at 10

  • isoft UnlishedTenEight

    whats the background music name

    • isoft UnlishedTenEight

      the first 1 i mean

  • Eric

    As somebody who just casual plays zombies andddd that’s about the extent of my COD experience, I just got the PS3 version for $15, so I’m really not expecting much, and from what I can tell, the zombies at least has very similar game play, just with shitty graphics, which are okay with me, since I’m just playing for me and not doing streams on YouTube or anything like that, the graphics aren’t a huge deal. It’s kinda like a car, if you can afford the premium package of say a mustang, great, if not, the basic package serves the same purpose. But that’s just my opinion. All you guys do you
