    It’s official: Search and Destroy will NOT be in public matches, but rather private matches.

    • ORB1T4L

      WHAT ??? IW has gone too far !

      • It must be patched… IT MUST BE PATCHED 🙁

        • ORB1T4L

          Let’s spam their Twitter account so they patch it day one !!! 😀 And I’m serious !


          • Tony Rambo

            BRING BACK SnD DAMNIT!!!!

          • Justin MD


          • I just did! lol

          • dasdadv

            LOL great idea


      Wow!! I’m very disappointed S:!! I loved S&D

    • Mitch

      Honestly, I have no idea why IW is cutting all these modes.

      • ORB1T4L

        They want us to start a war so they can make a game about that war. :O

  • Guest

    Wow!! I’m very disappointed S:!!

  • Heartache xx

    Thumbs up if you’re going to have a Call-of-duty Marathon this weekend!!!

  • Ryumoau

    Hope the double XP will be for NA gamers as well.

    • smayo

      I always assumed those double XP weekends where a worldwide thing, weird that the folks in NA don’t get it.

  • CoDforever

    Charlieintel ! Can you please help me please ? how do i pre order ghosts (the ps3 version) on PSN ? Please anyone help me ! i dont want anything to do with the ps4 version ! just the ps3 version ! how do i pre order on psn for ps3 version of ghosts only !!???

    • Mitch

      Just in the store (should be €69,99, I don’t know the other currencies). Most full games on PSN are €69,99. This one will grant you the opportunity to buy the PS4 version for €9,99

      • CoDforever

        Thanks for reply but i have 3 questions 1) i live in Canada so i have exactly $60 in my wallet how do i pre order it for ps3 only AND can I ? 2) there is no tax right ? 3) how do i PRE LOAD on ps3 on Nov 3 ?

        • Mitch

          1). You always pre-order it for PS3 only
          2). No, the price displayed in the store is what you pay, not a cent more.
          3). I don’t know exactly since I’ve never per-ordered something in the store, but I think it should automatically start downloading if you turn on your ps3.

          • CoDforever

            ok thanks so much bro ! really appreciate it <3

          • CoDforever

            Still need to know about pre loading tho.

        • Whoo! Canada!

    • CoDforever

      Also i want absolutely NOTHING to do with the ps4 version pls

  • George

    Oh my god, Wii U actually got mentioned in a general Call of Duty announcement! 😀

    • Alexander Kleinwechter

      It was about time!!

      • George

        I know right? We always hear PS3/4 and XBOX 360/ONE, but never us! 😀

        • Jet045

          Im just as schocked as you guys are! Its a pleasant surprise. Too bad we wont get FreeFall :/

          • George

            Yeah…that part sucks. We should’ve started getting DLC with Black Ops II last year.

        • Connor Williams

          Probably because your console is kind of a joke in the gaming community, no offense.

          • BSOG

            Without us, your PS3/4 would fail miserably. Besides, Nintendo is way bigger than Sony will ever get. I’m not joking. Maybe Sony should sell to Disney instead.

          • George

            With all the XBOX ONE crap flying around, you can STILL say that? Geez…

          • Jet045

            I find it unlikely that it will stay a “joke” over the next few years. I think a lot of the first part exclusives will help drive sales. And whatever else Nintendo has up their sleave. And besides, Id say the X1 is more of a jokr than thr WiiU.

  • IT4ZERI-Fariko T4ZER

    wait so all the people buying ghosts on next gen only don’t get the double xp? sucks to be them

    • Sentrymann

      Oh trust me, it won’t suck to be us, 1080p boy.

      • IT4ZERI-Fariko T4ZER

        i an upgrading later on release so i get best of both 😛

        • Sentrymann

          *High five*

  • Bravo Asterisk

    Since XP is earned in MP and Squads, is double XP for MP and squads?

  • OnlyWar

    Can’t wait to play COD in 1080p on PS4… Too bad the Xbox One version is only 720p

  • Samuel Fogle

    wish I could afford a damn ps4.

  • burrowsgeorge

    at the midnight launch will i be able to pick up my ps4 copy i pre ordered as it comes out the same day as the rest or is the midnight launch just for xbox ps3 and wii u?thanks
