Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is the biggest entertainment launch of 2015, beating out other popular launches, such as opening of Jurassic World earlier this year, which made $511 million in its opening weekend.

In addition, Black Ops 3 has the highest player engagement ever in Call of Duty history – with over 75 million hours played thus far.

Activision says retail sales for opening weekend have increased significantly compared to Advanced Warfare and Ghosts launch weekends. In addition, digital sales of Black Ops 3 were higher compared to Advanced Warfare’s digital sales on launch timeframe.

“Call of Duty’s millions of passionate fans have shown us, yet again, the strength of their commitment to this enduring franchise,” said Bobby Kotick, Activision Blizzard’s Chief Executive Officer. “Call of Duty: Black Ops III is the biggest entertainment launch this year in any medium, and bigger than any theatrical opening weekend ever.”

“The Call of Duty: Black Ops III launch is bigger than any game, any movie, or any entertainment launch this year. But more importantly, our fans are engaging more deeply with the franchise than ever before. In fact, so far, people are playing Black Ops III for more hours per player than any Call of Duty game on record,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Call of Duty is more than a game, it’s a year round passion for a growing base of millions of fans and it’s only gaining momentum.”

“As we‘ve said from the start, PlayStation is the best place to play Call of Duty, and this record-breaking launch shows how true this statement is. Black Ops III is the biggest launch of the year so far, and the PlayStation Nation is ready. We’re proud to call PlayStation the home of Call of Duty and look forward to supporting our community with DLC map pack content first,” said Adam Boyes, VP of Publisher and Developer Relations, Sony Computer Entertainment America.

On PlayStation®4, Black Ops III set a new record as the best-selling digital full game by units sold in its first day of availability in PS4™ history.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, with this announcement, was able to maintain its lead over a packed holiday game season. Fallout 4 launched yesterday, but Bethesda has yet to report any numbers on its launch.

    holy shiet!

  • The Flash

    Xbox One is the best place to play COD now imo, now we can play a load of past ones too

    • YoungMurf

      Only one past CoD though.

      • Duce

        For now

      • The Flash

        they’ve only announced BO1 so far – but apparently BO2 and MW2 are also coming

        • Keshav Bhat

          BO2 and MW2 are not announced or even rumored. Where did you hear that?

          • The Flash

            One of my friends said he had talked to someone who claimed to be in the know of the BC list and said BO1/BO2/MW2 would definitely be coming at some point, my friend dismissed it because we thought ATVI wasnt supporting this BC program, but the guy said they definitely are, and now BO1 was just announced as he said it would. He did apparently show proof in the form of a convo to my friend. Whether it was all made up BS we dont know, but now BO1 has been announced, there maybe some credibility towards it now. And i’d be very surprised now that if ATVI has allowed BO1, that they wouldnt allow BO2 – as that is the most requested game. If/when MW2 comes it maybe closer to IWs next game.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Tbh it would make sense considering MW2 had a huge petition behind it as well Black Ops 2 being the number one most requested 360 title to be backward compatible.

    • | Coop X

      Yeah no…it’s only campaign and offline interactions bro…so no not really…

      • Keshav Bhat

        No it’s not. Backwards compatibility is the entire game – including MP and DLCs. You play on Xbox 360 servers, so you can play with Xbox 360 friends.

        • | Coop X

          Oh that is pretty cool…but tbh that doesn’t make xbox the best place to play cod…more people will be playing the new black ops if they have the one…and with that ps4 having the partnership now, makes it the better place for cod “now”. On 360 It was the best but now not so much

          • The Flash

            Yeah the DLC moved first to PS4, but thats not enough to justify buying a PS4 imo. Xbox was the home for it for years and it still is imo, its like all the previous CODs least MW2 onwards had at home at Xbox and ATVI is allowing their home to remain on Xbox.

          • | Coop X

            I mean yes your opinion is valid! Especially becasue you have been on xbox for so long:) but imo I find the ps4 the coming up fps system if it already isn’t…but that’s just me though…just glad that bo3 is so much fun!!

          • The Flash

            Well I still have a PS2 and some games for that, so im not anti-sony at all. But i then moved on to X360, and of course have a Live account and as l learnt we’d use the same account for both 360 and One, going for the PS4 route would mean i’d have to pay for that too which is just silly. The PS4 maybe better than the Xbone, but my preference is the Xbone, just like X360 was against PS3.

    • lunator100hd .

      Its just bo1 so no big deal for me, but if they add mw2/mw3 then i will be jealous for not having an xbox one.

      • Logic Chief

        Oh they will be adding all cods they have the relationship setup with Activision now. Also Getting dlc early is not really worth it like how aw was full of bugs and glitches like zombies glitch were can get to a super high round messed up the leaderboards for ever I would rather get dlc second so other can find the horrible bugs and they will be fixed before I get my hands on them.

        • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

          Sounds your lying to yourself… lol

      • The Flash

        BO1 is my favourite, be cool to see MW3 and BO2 though

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I wouldn’t be. I can wait for the Xbox One. It has nothing that I’m personally interested in. Only the new UI, right now. I doubt backwards compatibility would even be used, and it’s not even native.

    • Andy Bennett

      I can play 10 of the past COD games on my computer 😀 #pcmasterrace

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      Past CODs are great but I can just go on a last gen console to play it. I rarely ever play past COD’s due to hackers, glitches, bugs, exploits and barely being able to find matches because of the very few players.

      The most recent COD doesn’t have those detrimental problems.

      • The Flash

        i dont want my 360 anymore, i only have it for MW3/BO1/2, if they get put on Xbone, i’ve no longer a need for my 360, some of us want it all on one console

        • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

          Bought a next gen console to play last gen games. Convenient but ironic.

          • The Flash

            No i didnt, i bought it for BO3, and AW looked shit on last gen (as does BO3), i also bought it for watchdogs. I was happy keeping my 360 for the other CODs, but it gets tiresome having to switch between both consoles and now they’ve announced at least one COD coming, my 360 may become redundant.

          • GinsuVictim

            I couldn’t just get rid of my 360. There’s going to be so much that isn’t supported by backward compatibility (especially since I’ll probably get a PS4 lol).

          • The Flash

            the only games i have for 360 right now are WaW, BO1, BO2 and MW3. Also have Crackdown 2 and an OG Xbox Spyro game somewhere. But if they allow BO1/2 and MW3 on Xbone. I wont need my X360 – i dont play the other games.

          • GinsuVictim

            Are you one of those people that pretty much only play CoD? Jeez…

          • The Flash

            I dont have time in my life to devote to many games, but i do like my COD Zombies where it fits in

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Gaming is a hobby. I don’t have time for it, either, but I still play them. Even 30 minutes wouldn’t hurt anything.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’d really appreciate if you expanded your games library a little bit. CoD is literally all that you play? Let me know what games you like, and I’ll help you out, if it’s not too much trouble.

          • The Flash

            I’d have never got into these games at all if it werent for my bro and well maybe if he hadn’t it would’ve been better that way, i devoted way too much time to BO1 when i should’ve focused on my school work and good grades – it became an obsession. Now i’ve toned it down quite a bit, but i think i’ll stick to the games i have rather than get taken away with anymore.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Yeah, I probably shouldn’t try to convince you of anything if it’s not your thing. Are you making your own income? Yes or no, gaming is a great hobby, and also arguably one of the best. Definitely the best form of entertainment, IMO.

          • The Flash

            no i still need a job, havent heard shit from them

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Why not keep it? I keep all of my consoles for the memories. I couldn’t care less if they clutter the house. I don’t need a feature that hardly anybody uses. I’ll just keep my 360, because not everything will be added in BC.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          The whole lineup will not be on the console, so keep your 360. It’s all PR.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      With the backwards compatibility feature? Sure, you could argue that.

  • It shouldn’t come as a surprise since people were long awaiting a Treyarch COD for so long, expectations were high, hype was high and Ghosts was a big disappointment and contrary to what many people have said about AW I did enjoy a fresh change from horrible Ghosts and I do like BO3 alot. So much I got the Juggernog Edition and also the limited edition BO3 PS4.

  • Will WilFredo Mendoza

    But didnt Black Ops or Black Ops 2 win 1 Billion within the first few days. I forgot which game it was.

    • Drank Bleach

      No, that was gta v.

  • lunator100hd .

    As of right now im kinda dissapointed of the game, hitmarkers for days and im dead in a blink of an eye, gunfights in this game is really noob friendly, i hope this will change otherwise this game will be slightly less failure than bo2 in my book. I hope you guys enjoy the game.

  • Guywithbrains

    What else can you expect from such amazing game? Of course excluding campaign and lag. But the core of Black Ops 3 is so good that these sales numbers are not surprising at all.

    • CoDforever

      The campaign was awesome tho ..

  • Tommy Ledge

    MP hit-detection is worse than any other fps video game ever made by any company. A shooter without good hit-detection in 2015 is laughable and says a lot about the ‘quality level’ desired by it’s developers. These statements are obviously just more hype trying to add to the shiny packaging diverting attention from the fact of a sub-par developed product.

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      You might want to make sure your not missing your shots and your internet quality is good or above for MP consistency.

      • Tommy Ledge

        I’ve been competitive gaming for 18 yrs. played every MP shooter ever made since Q1 including silly games like Plants vs. Zombies (which laughably has better hit-detection than this ‘triple A’ title). The only remotely possible excuse is that the netcode is 100% location based and myself living on the immediate US coastline puts me in a position where i am never centrally located in the lobby.. but then again, BF, Quake, TF, Halo, CS and UT never have this issue.. so it has to be just the crappiest netcode ever made.

        • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

          Can you provide some video evidence of the terrible hit detection your getting? I am getting borderline flawless hit detection so I find it had to believe you lol

          Black Ops 3 on PS4 is getting a very small 4 frame delay.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcTf2kDuxrs

          • J4MES

            Driftor’s technical videos are about as credible as a promise from a liar. This is the person that said SBMM didn’t exist last year and Activision told him to take the video down. The netcode is exceptionally inconsistent on BO3 and that’s not even dictated by the lag compensation. There is a massive difference between lag (connection) and bullet detection (netcode) so what you’re talking about isn’t what the OP is angling at either.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            The netcode is not ‘exceptionally inconsistent’ it’s a actually a consistent minuscule 4 frames (baseline) delay. I’ve tested it myself and I’d trust Driftor over you any day of the week.

            Likely hood is your a random guy sucking bad at BO3 and your looking to blame the game instead of yourself… lol.

            The OP said ‘MP hit detection’ and I referred to the netcode being good in this game so that means the problem the OP is getting to be due to connection issues such as lag, packet loss or ping spikes. You can easily check for these things in the game (there are live feed charts for these things if you press the options menu) to see if it’s your internet that’s messing up the consistency of your game.

          • J4MES

            Hit detection is NOTHING to do with lag LMAO! You’re having an argument about something COMPLETELY different. You cannot talk about netcode when you don’t even know what it is. FYI my K/D is 2.78 and that’s having to put up with people like you lag comping the entire lobby with your parents economy internet. Also creating a guest account above to post from the same IP 5 minutes later is quite frankly embarrassing. Also doing a 1v1 (LOL) ‘test’ is not reflective either. Bloody amateur kids…

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Oooh look the kids now using caps and trying to insult me lol sounds like someone is mad. Please provide proof of your 2.78 K/D and video examples of bad hit detection otherwise I don’t believe a thing you say.

            Hit detection has everything to do with lag. If a player is lagging behind your shooting at something that may not actually exist yet. Therefore your shots wont register even though it looks like they registered resulting in bad hit or even collusion detection.

          • J4MES

            Why are you after ‘evidence’ all the time – perhaps you should have a look around the internet for all the evidence you need instead of ignorantly leeching off a paid YouTube puppet who’s already seen his technical videos disproved by many credible entities including Activision themselves. Once again stop confusing yourself with lag and netcode as it’s two different things as everyone keeps telling you. Deluded fanboys….sigh.

          • guest

            Because there is no evidence of bad hit detection. This cod has better netcode than any cod since mw2 days. The only way you might perceive the hit detection being bad is by the slower time to kill which makes it seem that the hit detection is bad.

          • J4MES

This is probably a guy that made an account because he also wants to see the facts to your accusations instead of bull shit accusations. Prove to us that the hit detection is off, that’s all we want… otherwise just stop talking.

            The facts are the netcode is fine therefore it’s your internet that’s lagging and causing hit detection issues. Your claiming the netcode has bad hit detection right? Prove it….

            I will continue to upvote this guest because he is talking sense and facts and not mindless accusations.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            I am far from confused. I’m thoroughly enjoying the game the game, your the one with issues and maybe your ignorance is why your so delusional that you can’t even enjoy the game and your sucking badly.

            I’m after evidence because I bet if your show me a video of you shooting I can point all the shots your missing. Your clearly just a mad salty player who can’t accept that they suck at the game so it’s time to blame it on the games ‘hit detection’. lol how sad…

          • J4MES

            If you want evidence; Google it kid. You don’t even know what netcode is so your comments are irrelevant as well as your ignorance.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            What makes you think I don’t know what network code is? Don’t spew bull shit without evidence otherwise GTFO…

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Why would I google it, it’s up to prove your false accusations and fix your issue. I’m enjoying the game lol

          • Tommy Ledge

            First off netcode issues and engine lag is not even remotely the same thing.. Second I in no way struggle with the game, i find it one of the easiest Cods to date (i’ve played them all). Me saying that there is horrible hit-detection means that there is horrible hit-detection, I’m not saying that i am ‘struggling’ or even getting beat or losing battles because of it.. shite hit-detection is universal and effects all players equally (most of the time), so in the end there is no ‘advantage’ or ‘disadvantage’ to the games poor design for players. I can go 50-0 and I would still sit here and say the hit-detection is garbage if in fact it is, and in this game; it’s the worst i’ve seen. This also does not mean that the hit-detection does not work, it only means that there are times that a bullet will not register when the aim is true, and other times when it will register when the aim was off target. IMO if this happens even once throughout the course of a match, that is unacceptable by 2015 standards, and the actual fact of the matter is that it happens in this game more often than that.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Please provide a video and I’ll clearly explain to you where your shots went awry. Sorry if it seemed like I insulted your in game skills but that was not directed at you.

            However you just saying ‘hit detection is bad’ sounds like nothing other than a sorry excuse but if you provide a video where your bullets are clearly on target but not being detected then we know the game has hit detection issues.

          • MarredAndReborn

            Its lag compensation, something you probably know zero about. Click this link and go to the very bottom, second to last clip. Watch it to the very end, and then try to tell me I did something wrong. If you try to argue, you are a retard. https://account.xbox.com/en-US/gameclips

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            I can’t see your clips, you need to upload it to YouTube.

          • MarredAndReborn

            I’ll upload my clips to YouTube soon. Goodnight dumbass.

          • MarredAndReborn

            It’s lag compensation. People with superior connections are getting all the crap. People with good-average connections are untouched.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            ‘Superior Connection’ lol acting all high and mighty over how good your internet is and here you are crying about lag compensation… how ironic. I bet your nat type isn’t even Open. These big headed and ignorant Xbone players… lol

          • MarredAndReborn

            Hey dumbass, it’s me again. First of all my NAT type is Open. Second, my console type has nothing to do with my internet. If my internet is superior, it is superior, unlike your mental processes. 120 Up and 90 Down with 30 ping and Open NAT type is superior, in case you didn’t know. Lag compensation therefore takes away my advantage by changing the location of the player to their “actual” location, but aim assist doesn’t lock onto their “actual” location. It locks onto where they would be without lag comp. Therefore, I do not get hit markers. Good day, and try to be less of a dumbass.

          • MarredAndReborn

            Oh and by the way, I showed my issue to an Activision representative, and he completely agreed that it isn’t functioning correctly. Sooo is Activision right, or is dumbass little you right? You don’t even know what lag comp is lol

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            So I’m suffering from ‘packet loss’ in every lobby? 2/3 of my deaths are because of the wonky hit detection.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Wonky hit detection caused by your internet lagging. Your ping might be spiking up to 400ms+ delays causing wonky hit detection as you described.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            At a 4-bar connection? This has to be happening to everyone. I get killed in 2 bullets, it seems like. It’s like Ghosts.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            If your accurate and you get head shots you will rightfully die quickly. Also a 4 bar connection can drop to a 1 bar within the blink of an eye and then back to 4 bars.

            The bars don’t tell the full story regarding your connection.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Last time I checked, there’s an in-depth analysis in the options menu for actual ping and packet numbers. I’ll use that to make sure, because last time I checked, my ping should always have been at least under 100ms.

          • MarredAndReborn

            Yes, every player out there is perfect and gets nothing but head shots every time. Quit arguing about stuff you haven’t experienced.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            I cannot believe the level of stupidity in this comment and I can see why Treyarch will never openly talk to us about lag and hit detection because it’s way beyond your capable level of understanding.

            My comment in no way implied every player out there is perfect… I merely stated a fact of how the game is designed. You are rewarded for accuracy and not rewarded for inaccuracy…. is this abnormal for First Person Shooters? No, so what the fuck are you talking about?

          • MarredAndReborn

            He said that he dies super fast EVERY TIME. And you replied by saying “If your accurate and you get head shots you will rightfully die quickly.” Therefore, you insinuated that he dies quickly EVERY time because people get headshots on him EVERY time, which furthermore insinuates that every player that shoots him is a perfect player. Gees you’re a dumbass.

          • MarredAndReborn

            Bro, you are straight up wrong. It is not lag, it is hit detection. Im running 10-20 ping and 90-120 Up 70-90 Down, and I’m getting the same crap. It’s the crap lag compensation, and is therefore the netcode. Quit arguing about something you haven’t even experienced.

          • Kobrah

            IKR, I haven’t had any problems with hit detection

          • Rolocker

            I haven’t really encountered many if any hit detection problems, and quite frankly Drift0r is more credible than your random comment. Drift0r’s information has always been true to me and works.

            “My question is, (because what you’re saying sounds like it makes sense, and along the line I’ll be studying this) will they be able to fix it with a patch update, or is it only tweaks.”

          • J4MES

            From what I remember with BO1 and BO2; they didn’t make a big deal about it and sort of patched in improvements on the sly every few weeks with little tweaks which did improve the game over time. I don’t think the developers would want to draw too much attention to the negativity surrounding this so I expect they’ll try and improve it without us really knowing.

            That’s his modified video that he uploaded after Activision asked him to remove his first one. The second video he made actually contradicted everything he said originally. That one was probably scripted by Activision themselves so it didn’t bring the game into further disrepute.

          • lunator100hd .

            Are you that stupd? Driftor mafe this test on LAN , even if its true that dosent mean hit detection is good, that video dosent prove anything about consistancy of bullet registration and staff.

          • J4MES

            Well said. The kid that posted the video is clueless.

          • lunator100hd .

            Its so sad that ppl cant see the obvious.

          • J4MES

            Blinded fanboys as usual..

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Some on this site think that we have to kiss ass to post on here. Fuck that.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Staff? Stupd? What kind of spelling mistakes is that and your trying to call me stupid… lol ok also what is your point?

            LAN is the place where the inconsistencies of being online and lag don’t come into play that means it’s a true test games engine and the delay between seeing other players and hit detection. That video proves that the games engine and hit detection is working fine.

            But when online comes into play that may get considerably worse with ping spikes and packet loss from your internet and your connection to the Black Ops 3 servers.

          • lunator100hd .

            The real test for a game is always online, of course when you play lan many problems disapear but we are talking about faulty hit detection and you posted an irelevant yt video about testing engine lag on LAN. Thats why i called you stupid and for the rest of your comment i will take it as a bad joke just because i have 2.51 kdr rushing.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            The real test is not online as online play brings inevitable inconsistencies. However, If your internet is good or above you will have no problems online and you’ll have a more similar experience to that of LAN.

            If your internet is not good you’ll have multiple issues and inconsistencies and that is a given.

          • lunator100hd .

            I play with the same connection i was playing ghosts, i get almost perfect hit detection in ghosts even now(after 2 years) but bo3 is aids from the gate, now whats your next shitty explanation besides me sucking at the game and having bad connection. You must be idiot if you cant see that net code in this game is bad just like every 3arch game.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            No your the idiot because your failing to realise that Ghosts had a borderline instant time to kill. First person to shoot wins that means hit detection didn’t even come into question because you die instantly anyway.

            Treyarch have always had higher time to kills and people can’t accept the fact that their missing their shots. You don’t die instantly in this game you can avoid fire if quick enough and gun fights are not instantaneous battles. Every shot matters and must land and your clearly not landing all your shots so it’s time to blame the games netcode even though its the same as Ghosts lol

            Learn to play the game and work on your aim.

          • lunator100hd .

            im done, you are completely shithead.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Yes, of course your done, I hope you not only realise but also understand how things differentiate between the two games now. 🙂

            Nice attempt on a coherent sentence kid, you’ll get there soon.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yup, I must be bad at the game. Definitely my low K/D that’s the cause lmao bitch please, the hit detection is definitely wonky, much worse than what we had in the Beta in fact. And before you say “Hating on the game already?” or some crap like that, I love Black Ops 3, it’s brought back the fun in CoD again, but I know dodgy hit detection when I see it with my own eyes.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Yes your right hit detection is definitely wonky if your lagging Jordan. What ISP are you with?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Lagging? Are you blind or something? I’m always on a constant 4-bar connection as you can see from the image. How would I be able to pull off great scores and K/Ds if you claim I’m “lagging”? You’re just too blind to admit Treyarch need to iron out the hit detection. Like I said I love Black Ops 3, but this needs to be improved as soon as.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            I agree but I don’t how this is going to be improved when no one can even show evidence of bad hit detection lol

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            37 – 15 well done Jordan. Now the video to back up your claims of bad hit detection? That is the primary issue your experiencing here yes…?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yes it is, and I posted that there to show you that I’m not bad at the game and that I don’t go “5 – 30” in every match. I’ll be more than happy to make a video on this within the next few days, but right now I’m finishing the last 9 levels before I hit Prestige 2.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Awesome! Can’t wait to see it.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Because there have been many times where I shot almost an entire magazine into someone only for them to kill me in 3 shots. And trust me, whenever this happens I instantly check my ping to make sure I’m not in a laggy server and 9/10 times I’m not.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Sometimes you can miss the lag spike though no matter how instantly you check.

          • lotterry

            fuck off cunt

          • Bored1234

            ..

        • CoDforever

          did you just say BF has never had this issue?

          OMG I am done .. have you ever played BF4 at all?

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Hit detection is okay on dedicated servers. Without them, it’s ass. I feel like I shot 4-5 shots into the body then get owned in 2.

        • Netcode has nothing to do with hit detection. All your years of experience have amounted up to nothing on this subject. Also, PvZ is the best game ever made 🙂

          • Bored1234

            Dislike

      • jordanxbrookes

        No the hit detection is definitely off. It feels like Black Ops Launch hit detection which doesn’t really surprise me. Just hope they improve it within the next few weeks.

    • J4MES

      Agree. Shoot someone 4 times in the head with hitmarkers and they kill you with one hit to the leg.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        Probably because you missed all 4 shots you thought landed on the head. You probably got drop shotted, I drop shot quite a lot.

        • J4MES

          4 hitmarkers….

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            You didn’t get 4 hit markers clearly… you must have missed shots especially if your receiving flinch from return fire. Your first shot might have connected but that doesn’t necessarily mean your follow up shots did.

            Remember hit markers fade out after about half a second, you might think you got 4 hit markers but you actually only got 1. Did you see 4 hit markers connect and fade out, all head shots? I’d love to see video evidence of this.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Incorrect. Watch this LoyalPatriot video, and skip to 2:09. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUAjEVW86-E

      • (PS4) TheSilentKnight

        I cannot express how many bloody times this has happened to me although I have been on the receiving end luck-wise a few times. Treyarch need to desperately iron out their code like they did eventually on Black Ops 2. It probably weighs itself out but at the same time it shouldn’t be happening and gun stats virtually become meaningless as you are reliant on code rather than skill to get the kill. I really don’t know why the developers struggle when the old and even new Infinity Ward manage to keep everything on par. I always thought lag would be the issue at launch but for it to be code-related is a bit of a shame for 2015.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Shame on Treyarch for putting headglitches on the maps. It’s noobie shit.

    • (PS4) TheSilentKnight

      Yup, defo worse than BF4 but its not quite as noticeable. Black Ops 1 had awful netcode especially when compared to MW2. Treyarch make great games but their coding is utter shite. Anyone in denial about this has a short memory as Black Ops 2’s netcode was tweaked to death and the same will happen to this game. Whether it will improve drastically is another story.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        The netcode is fine, it’s at 4 frames baseline delay, similar to that of Infinity Wards Ghosts so what are you talking about? lol

        • Tommy Ledge

          You have no idea what netcode does and how it effects gameplay. Engine delay is a design feature that allows the developers to adjust the speed of play (pace of play). Higher the delay, the faster the pace of play encouraged as moving players receive an line of sight advantage over static players. A low delay is not some sort of ‘achievement’ like you make it sound, and ANYONE that thinks this has no idea what they are talking about and/or never worked in game design. Netcode issues are caused when a player model does not sync correctly with it’s hit-box. The main cause for this is improperly designed compensation system, although other causes such as high latency and/or packet loss can also cause this.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Ok so your accusation is: The games netcode is not syncing hit boxes correctly. Go into LAN (the games purest form with the least amount of lag) and prove it to me. Shoot someone ten times in the head, record it and show me all 10 bullets missing the hit box of the head. Can you do this? It’s the only way to prove your point…

        • (PS4) TheSilentKnight

          Stop commenting on aspects of the software you clearly have no basic understanding of. Netcode has no bearing on lag/delay so I really don’t know why you are comparing the two very different and unrelated mediums. I’m flagging your posts for trolling – if you aren’t and you are serious; I apologize but you need to educate yourself on such matters before commenting and embarrassing yourself.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Netcode definitely has a bearing on lag/delay wow you really are confused aren’t you?

            Can you explain to me what a netcode even is?

            I have no intention of carrying on this discussion with someone who has no idea what their talking about.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          We’re talking 4 bar connections and our shots not registering, not teleporting around the map, nor not seeing enemies around corners (camera angles).

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Your internet is spiking and lagging that’s why your getting those issues. And then lag compensation comes into play because your lagging.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            This most likely isn’t nearly as bad on the dedicated servers. I’m about done playing it. Having such fast TTK and having everyone die so fast is not fun to me and it’s making me go crazy.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            The TTK is no where near close to Ghosts instakill. Some gun fights in this game last very long, particularly medium to long range engagements.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            IDK. I feel like I get a Ghosts-level of melted. It may take me a bit longer to kill the enemies, but it takes me a shorter time to die. That’s what it feels like in BO3, and that’s what it felt like in Ghosts and AW, too. Then there are the deaths that I don’t want to talk about. The really stupid and embarrassing ones. Like miscalculating a wallrun jump and falling down, or bad aim. I don’t want to talk about it.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            lol the skill gap in this game is evident and widened compared to previous CODs due to lots of new mechanics.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            CoD is a casual game. I couldn’t care less about skill. Players shouldn’t jump in and be forced to play a way that they don’t want to IMO. Like how I don’t want to be forced to play on maps that are obviously made for competitive when they shouldn’t be, but that’s something I can get over, and it might benefit me later on.

    • CraziBoi94

      Lol definitely not. Bo2 was easily worse. Destiny is hysterically worse. A lot of other games are worse. But its not good either.

    • BOB

      You must not have played BO1 when it came out.

      • CoDforever

        its till pretty wonky

    • Hit detection is perfect. It’s not like this is their first rodeo.

    • JaYsLiCk

      I though this game was full of bad hit detection then I realised I cant shoot to save my life..

  • CheEsEToUcH666

    Bad hit detection hasnt stopped me from getting a positive k/d. I would know, i played black ops 1 and 2. People just need to adapt.

    • DEMOLITION12

      why should i have to adapt to intentional bad netcode and lag compensation?

      • CheEsEToUcH666

        intentional? stop crying.

        • DEMOLITION12

          truth hurts? you’re the one crying

          • SoulTaker

            Go play another game though like Battlefield if the netcode pisses you off why are you supporting them by buying the game???

          • YoungMurf

            You’ve been whining like a bitch since launch day, surely you’ve something better to do than whine about a game all the time.

      • CoDforever

        Intentional? Sigh .. here comes the conspiracy theories from the nerds that play this game all day yet hate on it

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          I don’t think there’s anything to ‘hate’ about. I’m having fun with it, even at a 0.80 KD and raging at every BS death.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Mine’s negative, right now. I’m really struggling. (0.80)

      • CheEsEToUcH666

        Its ok, bro. Youll do better depending on how committed you are.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Nice to see someone nice lol. I’ve improved. It’s currently sitting at 0.86. Still trying to get it up.

  • Stefan Lang

    Only a few tweaks and this game will be a 10/10 for me. Im loving the gameplay so far. The only map I hate is Metro it just plays really slow, maybe not in Ground War though.

    • I wont lie, I love metro! Always get my best streaks on that map. It’s not my favorite but it’s in my top 3 easily. I can see why so many people hate it though.

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      It’s fully symmetrical apparently designed for eSports, I can see why people don’t like it but I love it.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Why the hell do developers do this? A huge chunk of the population does not want to play on maps designed for e-Sports. It means headglitches galore. IDK. Maybe they make the maps more fun to play on. Doesn’t mean I want to accept it.

    • guest

      I love metro one of my favorite maps easily

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Exodus isn’t very fun for me.

  • RdJokr

    It’s a little bit early to be making this claim, given that Fallout 4 just came out and all. But that’s none of my business.

    • CoDforever

      Fallout is no where near as big as the internet would lead you to believe

  • GTA V

    They must be buying their own video games lol.

    • CoDforever

      hahaha ur just in denial

      • GTA V

        You’re just too young to be an entrepreneur.

        • CoDforever

          yeah im sure they spent 500 million just buying copies of their own game, retard

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            He’s a troll…

  • Marko

    Are digital sales included?

  • spartanelite

    “PlayStation is the best place to play”? Don’t recall that a year or two ago and definitely not with that gimicky uncomfortable control

    • J4MES

      Meh, it’s just marketing PR spiel which they always say with their exclusive console partners.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        They’re not exactly wrong, though. I’m no fanboy of anything, but marketing deals do mean that they have the better versions of the game, as well as the whole resolutiongate ordeal.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      “Don’t recall that a year or two ago and definitely not with that gimicky uncomfortable control” I disagree. The ‘best place to play’ thing is a PR spiel, though. Like Microsoft’s bullshit “best lineup in Xbox history” lie.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Still not quite the $1Billion mark MW3 hit, but it’s still a very impressive accolade.

    • CoDforever

      No game will ever reach MW3 or GTA V’s level of popularity or hype imo ..

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I was somewhat excited for MW3, but man was that game a huge fuck up.

  • SoulTaker

    BUT COD IS DEAD!!!!

  • Bolbi Stroganovsky

    Still wondering why no player count :/

  • Ak74u

    FIX HIT DETECTION PLEASE

  • Matt

    Despite the fact that Black Ops 3 sold less than it’s predecessor initially (BO2 made $500 million in one day) it looks like Treyarch helped cod gain some steam again.

  • Diego Diniz

    Yeah, and Brazilian Players sufffering with HUDGE LAG! “Walmart COnnection” Servers…

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    “Call of Duty is dying”.

  • lotterry

    to bad the game is absolute shit

  • TheHorror

    You children arguing over hit detection in the comments are unreal. Yes the hit detection sure as fuck isn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I dont understand why people are shitting themselves over it. My internet is nowhere near top of the line, and I’d still say that 80% of my deaths are my fault and not the “hit detection” nor lag. It feels more or less like every other Black Ops game that’s been released.

    • GinsuVictim

      Most deaths – see them first, shoot four or five times center mass, hitmarker, hitmarker, hitmarker, hitmarker, take one or two shots yourself, dead.

      • TheHorror

        I honestly haven’t gotten too much of that. Maybe once or twice every couple of games but it hasn’t been anything too unbearable for me at least.

    • hungryandrew

      It an excuse that these little bastards use

  • Guilherme Kaneko

    Activision recommend us to play CoD BO3 on PS4?
    First they need to fix the LAG in South América, Australia, New Zeland and part of Europe.

  • mama miya

    The have had a serious problem with mouse lag and smoothness in beta and also in final released version and I had to search internet for hours to find the solution to fix it. Luckily I found this guide and solved my problem but this do haunted me for sometime. Still I believe game need more improvement in hit detection.

  • rick

    And it’s a huge POS! Last CoD I played was BO1. It seems this game has fallen quite far since then. I’m forced to try and throttle my internet just to play on an even playing field. The hit detection is trash, the respawns are garbage, and the wall running and specialist weapons are a $#it addition. What 7 year old told you that would be a cool idea? What the hell happened to this game? From now on I will be passing on CoD titles and instead pick up a normal, boots on the ground, FPS. Enough with the stupid futuristic BS. Get it together Treyarch. This was a swing and a miss big time. I’ll play this garbage simply because I pre-ordered it thinking it would resemble the good CoD games but you have lost my future business. You better hope those preteens are making money so they can support your weak efforts.
