    Next Cod first on PlayStation Network ..

    • Doubtful, Xbox pays to have it be first on theirs, contracts are key here. Also think they pay to make it so tournaments are for it to.

    Does charlie intel have an app, Google chrome extension or something that can notify me that something was posted? Instead of always checking the website.

    • Lorhelm

      Use an RSS reader called feedly. Add all the sites you follow and it’ll automatically add the articles as soon as they’re posted. That’s what I use and it keeps me up to date.

  • There have been a lot of “firsts” for the COD series during the life of Ghosts so far. It seems they are definitely trying new things to make up for something.

    • MichiganerE

      Yep. Also, doesn’t it seem like ever since Black Ops 2, the developers have been obsessed with “innovation”?

      • Carrisi

        Yeah only BO2 succeeded, ghosts failed

        • Aldo

          Really? What was so innovative about Blops 2 other than Pick 10?

          • Carrisi

            League Play!! it was good, the way it locked you in pre game lobbies etc, Ghosts copy of that was terrible.

  • GinsuVictim

    Put the maps in general rotation and I’ll give a shit.

    • Keshav Bhat

      It’ll be added closer to Devastation’s release on April 3rd.

      • GinsuVictim

        I realize that. That’s two weeks away. The DLC came out at the end of January and most people haven’t even got to play it.

    • yoyoyoy

      Oh boy can’t wait till I play the upcoming map pack on the normal rotation in June!

    so this all took 2 months after the dlc release ?


    Less than 1000 players playing DLC playlists WORLDWIDE on XBox One !! This Free for a few days move is just desperation. may improve player numbers for a couple of days but its basically unplayable lag on so called Dedicated servers, Raven, IW, Neversoft and Activison should be ashamed for letting a game with such initial potential die like this, Yes titanfall may have taken some players but the numbers where already low before that release.

    I got MW3 7 months after release on 360 (im an PC gamer originally, so I know all about crappy player numbers!) and there was regularly 300,000+ playing it online, look now and its 18k on 360 and 5k on Xbox1…. The blame lies squarely on the devs, instead of making the game work and enjoyable they are pumping whats left of the fanbase for overpriced player skins etc and adding “competition” features that no one wants

    I see no way for this game to recover now and think how much worse it will get when more DLC dilutes and fragments the already decimated playerbase ! sad for fans of the series but the truth..

    • Wow! Didn’t realize player counts were that low even on the consoles. Is 18,000 peak? Peak is around 3:00 or 3:30 PM EDT here from what I see on the PC side. What is the Black Ops 2 player count on XBOX at this time now?

      • LikeaSomeboday

        Black Ops 2, has over 400k at Peak Times.

      • SuperImpact

        I think he’s talking about players in lobby. Not total players online. There’s no way 360 has 18k when PS4 averages about 50k everyday. It’s probably around the 200k area. Around this time of the year Black Ops 1 (Peak of COD) would have around 650k to even a million players online on the 360 alone. Ghost on all platforms isn’t reaching that.

    Is it me or it this free trial shit happening way too quick? I can’t remember if BO2 did this so quick after launch. Ghosts is screwed. All the Devs focused on the wrong stuff for this game. It seems to me IW/Raven studios built this game around the stupid character customization they implemented in that China COD project. Squads was a fail. Having no rewards for prestiging was a fail. Having everything purchasable(with squad points) from the start is a fail. Shitty Killstreaks, a huge fail. Before all you haters get upset at me, these are just my opinions which need to get voiced so the same shit doesn’t happen for future games. If you like Ghosts then that is your opinion. This will be forever the worst COD unless the other Devs are brain dead idiots and follow this same model!!

      Boom. Right on Point.
