Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg spoke with GameSpot recently, where he talked about how Microsoft plans to fill the void of no longer having the Call of Duty DLC agreement with Xbox side. Microsoft has had the DLC deal for Call of Duty since Modern Warfare 2, but this year the tides changed – Sony got the agreement for the PS4.

Greenberg still insists that Black Ops 3 will be a really big title for Xbox platforms, just like before. He furthered stated that fans who want Halo and Call of Duty can only get that on Xbox One.

We expect Black Ops III to be a really big title for us this year just like it has been in previous years. The fact is that there is no content in Call of Duty that we don’t get. The fact is if you want to play Call of Duty and Halo, you’re gonna want to do that on Xbox One. If you want to play Call of Duty and Halo and Tomb Raider or Forza or any of the seven big exclusives we have this holiday, you’re only going to be able to do that on our box. With that said, we know a lot of fans will play Call of Duty on other platforms. And we’re sure Activision will have great success with the title. That’s great for the industry overall. But our focus is making sure that our Xbox fans have all the best games, and I think we’re delivering that with Call of Duty and the rest of our games lineup.

Microsoft also lost Call of Duty eSports, as Call of Duty World League will be played exclusively on PlayStation 4, but they do have Halo 5’s new Halo Championship Series.

    Isn’t it the most important that we all (current gen users) will get to enjoy of same content after all?


    • Keshav Bhat

      Yes, you do get all the content, just 30 days later.

      • Guywithbrains

        Well I have always been a part of Playstation nation so I am used to waiting for 30 days.

        Of course the fairest thing would be no exclusivity deal at all but this is the second fairest option: Playstation getting DLC first.

        • RdJokr

          And then you realize that the deal is shitty either way for PC players.

          • brian castillo 6

            Let’s hope this game lives long just like black ops 2

          • Michael Staunton

            Joker, bro, it’s because people complain that they can’t install windows so they buy a ps4/xbox one. They haven’t yet experienced it to it’s fullest. Yet they say pc is shit and that consoles are better (lies)

        • NotShitAtCOD

          See Idk if thats true since the 360 made COD what it is today.

        • NotShitAtCOD

          I think the fairest thing they could do is give PS early dlc but allow the best Xbox and pc players to play in cod champs since Xbox still has all the tryhards and pc has keyboard and mouse which I hear is God like if your good.

    • LovekillerX

      Pre-ordered DDE today and I can’t wait to get my hands on DLC. I know the pain of waiting for DLC to arrive though…

      • brian castillo 6

        Agh no computer mouse?

        • Psycho2194

          PC is its own league. I enjoy both consoles and PC for different reasons.

      • BrandonTr

        I want my controller to have those faces, it wouldve saved me from whipping my controller years ago. I wouldve looked at the face with its smilin’ ass and i wouldve been like… awww and then calm myself down. :p

      • Jamie Dupas

        I surprisingly have a lot of PS4 and Xbox One friends (I’m XB1) and we get along really well. We just wish we could play together.

        • Joshua “JiffyNoodles” Fearn

          Woah, I think the reason the PS4 is being used is because it can do things better than the XBox Juan. simple

          • lol nope

          • Joshua “JiffyNoodles” Fearn

            uh, I don’t know, BO3 on PS4 can run at 1080p while one Xbox it’s downgraded to 960p. So, I’m not pointing fingures, but yeah

          • You’re taking me too seriously.

            Shows how sensitive you are over plastic boxes.

          • Joshua “JiffyNoodles” Fearn

            i’m talking to a cow who can understand English and use a keyboard, I have to take you seriously if you can do all that and chew your cud simultaneously.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      The console war doesn’t exist. Only fanboys on social media like ‘Big Gamers Small Talk’ and the gaming media fuel it. I’m a-hundred percent okay with the fact that it’s all preference and everybody has their own taste in games.

      • MichiganerE

        Don’t forget the Facebook group Gaming Battlegrounds. It’s a group with fanboys always arguing about which game and platform is better than the other. I left group over a year ago for a reason.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          That’s moronic. There’s no objectivity. It’s all preference.

    • ImTheGuyThatsRight

      No, if PS users have to wait the extra month for the last 8 cod titles, Xbx has to wait for the next 8 titles

      • Ak74u

        Sony is doing a very good job with PlayStation but I have to say that Xbox will win year 2016 currently Xbox is now getting a lot of games also backwards compatibility is coming to all users this November with the new Xbox experience. I love PlayStation I just wish it had more games and bring back some classics. I can see Microsoft taking the lead in 2016 if not 2017 for sure.

        • ScOott

          I’m not arguing with u, but what makes u say see exactly ? .. How are they going to take the lead in 2016 and 17 ? Backwards compalibility will not be enough for sure, and ps4 line of games looks just as promising as xbox one, I reckon it will stay the same..

          • Ak74u

            Have you seen the new Xbox one experience coming in November? The biggest problem with the xb1 is that the current UI sucks it’s appealing but it is very slow. They are adding a 50% faster UI with integrated Windows 10 this November backwards compatibility isn’t the biggest thing ever but it is expanding to many games. Microsoft will be adding stuff all next year and I can guarante they have big plans

          • ScOott

            Aghh fair enough, none of that stuff bothers me, long as they play games lol.. Looking forward to gears of war and quantum break tho ..

          • Ak74u

            True I really want a PlayStation just because I love Sony and I basically grew up with PlayStation but all my friends have Xbox so that’s basically why I have this console

          • Scott

            The update is very promising and will improve this console , and i’m surprised how fun Halo 5 is right now.

          • Logic Chief

            yes halo 5 is amazing i never really played much halo 2 and ce atleast multiplayer since i did not have xbox live then but i did play all halo’s online after halo 2 and i’d say halo 5 is my favorite one yet. if you own an xb1 and don’t have this somthing is wrong with you.

      • Michael Staunton

        Console fanboys, I have all console so do not induce rage at me, I don’t say “OMFG XBOX IS SUPERIOR, PLAYSTATION IS 10X BETTER” I just casually play on them, But for a fact I could buy it on ps4 for all dlc, but I want to get it on pc, for the full experience. I believe treyarch will do as they promised and provide me with a pc experience, greater than the last 2 black ops games, anyway stop with the god damn console wars, and enjoy the god damn game as it is.

  • travis

    If this was 2010 I would care about having to wait for DLC on xbox, but COD has really fallen off the map for me with the new movement systems. It’s sad, but I now play Ghosts when I wanna play COD on xbox one (which is still 2-3 x per week) because I will always prefer to be on the ground.

  • ItzSikh

    Fuck Console wars and fanboys and just enjoy the content

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      I wish this stuff didn’t exist, but they do dictate which versions are superior.

      • ItzSikh

        no not really, exclusivity is just there to sponsor consoles

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Yeah, it’s for marketing purposes, but the consoles that have the sole-marketing are usually the more-biased ones, making them the priority, and the superior versions, performance-wise.

  • Smayo

    haven’t bought a single DLC pack or season pass since Black ops 1, (got the MW3 season pass for free) and haven’t missed it, maybe this time around it’s worth it for zombies but MP wise i lost interest in every game around the release of the first DLC, not to mention the shit load of other triple A games on my list that releases in the months after Bo3.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Of course. Who argued against this fact? You can tell just by the pre-order numbers.

  • Ryumoau

    CoD games did well on playstation the last couple years, so i don’t see why i can’t do the same on xbox during the new Sony partnership era. 🙂

  • banerising

    I kind of want the hardened edition but I also wanna preload it and just start playing at 11:01pm my time. Please help lol

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Get the Hardened Edition. Nah I kid. Get whatever you want. I’m biased towards physical copies.

      • banerising

        Maybe, thanks.

    • ScOott

      Don’t get the hardened edition, it’s a waste of money, it’s to late for me I all ready paid..

      The thing that made hardened edition good was The Giant map, that you could only get by getting this version, or the Juggernog edition..

      But now u can get The Giant map with the season pass, so u are better off getting the standered edition with a season pass, or the digital delux version.. I’m not telling u what to do, but they are the best deals for your money ..

      • Stewart Thomas

        Can you not request a refund and order again? I would have thought if you contact customer service it is possible.

        • Stewart Thomas

          From M$ FAQ section

          “Can I cancel a pre-order?

          Yes, before we release the game, you can cancel your pre-order by contacting Xbox Support.”

        • ScOott

          Thanks, but basically I ordered mine from a shop left it to late to change to hardened edition, so had to go online to do it, but I don’t do internet shopping n don’t have the funds till the 6th .. so I got a family member to do it for me, n it took me some time to pursuade them to get it, they would be pissed if I told them I didn’t want it any more.. I’d rather waste 30 quid, or how ever much il be wasting than feel the wrath of my grandma ?.. N that’s my kewl story bro..

          • シーザー クラウン

            cool story m8 i r8 8/8

          • ScOott

            That’s gr8 🙂

  • Imventing

    yeah, I’m not even gonna buy the season pass this year tbh. lol the ps4 is only now getting the mp40 today lolol

  • ScOott

    It’s a really bad move for Microsoft to drop exclusive DLC in my opinion, what are people going to choose, kool exclusives on xbox one, or Kool exclusives on the ps4 and third party dlc support on ps4, even games like assassins creed u get 10 extra missions, I own both, and had the xbox one first, but if I had to start again for some reason, ps4 would be the console I would have to go for first now .. Unless ps4 stops with exclusive DLC Microsoft not doing them selfs any favours imo, especially if this continues on to newer consoles when the time comes ..

    • O: Peeping Tom!

      w8 w8, scoott, ur en xbox fagit?

      • ScOott

        Eye ulso heve teh ps4, duz thet stup mee bein en fagit ?

        • O: Peeping Tom!

          oh gud, ur nu lunga en fagit in mai book.

    • Nah, Xbox will do fine this year without the console exclusivity. Preorders for Black Ops 3 right now are higher for Xbox than PS4 in alot of GameStops in my area, but even without CoD there’s still Halo, Gears, Tomb Raider, Forza, Crackdown, Quantum Break, DLC Exclusivity for The Division and the backwards compatibility, plus the multiple options for the console itself, as opposed to like the one or two versions of the PS4 you can get.

  • zack

    How’s ps4 liking halo 5? Oh wait

    • Iamyoureviltwin

      Begone foolish pleb!!

    • brian castillo 6

      How’s the graphics lowering like?

      • Halo 5 is 1080p60 ….

        • Sol Malus

          Halo 5 has dynamic scaling, thus it’s always 60fps, but not always 1080p. It also had to sacrifice split-screen to run 60fps all the time.

      • Assassins Creed Syndicate is also the same as PS4 in terms of graphical side of sh*t… although it performs better in fps by a few..

    • ScOott

      All you Fagits will be on old gen come next year when nintendo reveal there new console that’s coming out.. So stup being bitches ..

      • Mike

        Nintendo? Not even in the same league. Your crazy

        • Astraxis

          If you’re gonna pick a fight, at least use proper grammar. Makes you look good.

        • NotShitAtCOD

          T’was a joke my friend.

    • Sol Malus

      How’s Xbox liking Bloodborne? Oh wait.

      • NotShitAtCOD

        Bloodborne? No one gives a fuck about bloodborne.

        • Kobrah

          I couldn’t give a single shit about Halo

          • NotShitAtCOD

            You couldn’t but halo is praised way higher than Fucking bloodborne.

    • Brad of Duty

      I’m Xbox and I think Halo is dog shit

      • NotShitAtCOD

        Really? That’s interesting. Why do you think it’s dog Shit?

    • NotShitAtCOD

      Lol I’m xb1 and loving it. Don’t think anyone who has a ps4 is gonna sell it just for halo though

  • Manny

    I had the ps4 from the start and it was a pain to wait 30 days for dlc.

  • Stefan Lang

    Which it will be. Ive grown up on Playstation but in 2008 made the transition to Xbox. I really dont care for console exclusives and all of that technical resolution shit. I simply love these consoles because they both do something I fell in love with in my teenage years of gaminf, Online Multiplayer. Cant wait for Bo3 this is gonna be a good year for anyone with the next gen consoles or PC. Sorry to those having to miss out.

    • Michael Staunton


  • Stewart Thomas

    What frustrates me is when the maps launch they are in a separate playlist.

    I prefer to play hardcore Dom so I play them a couple of times each and then wait for them to go in the normal rotation. I understand why they do this but it is a pain.

  • Slothigans

    I prefer Xbox. One reason I don’t like PlayStation is the flimsy controller. Too small, and I don’t even have big hands.

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      Flimsy controller? Mines pretty robust if you ask me.

      • Slothigans

        Good for you. And yes it does feel flimsy compared to Xbox ones controller. Xboxs sits in my hand perfectly.

        • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

          Actually my Xbox One controller is becoming flimsy and loose and I’ve dropped about the same amount as my PS4 plus it has a deadzone on the sticks.

          PS4 controller ‘sits’ perfectly in my hand also, is that suppose to be a big deal or something lol? Dropped it many times and its shell is not becoming loose like the XB1 controller, PS4 controller is proper robust.

          • Slothigans


    • ShadowMaster862

      I prefer the Xbox controller cause it’s bigger. My hands are to bulky to use on my Playstation controllers

    • Kobrah

      Good for you

      • Slothigans

        Um, ok.

  • shantzonpoint

    I’ve bought season pass a couple times but never played the dlc maps with any regularity. So I don’t bother spending the money anymore. If I was into zombies I’d prolly fork over $$$ for bo3 dlc tho.

  • Eddie Redgrave

    Biggest deal to me is the esports ,seriously considering canceling my DD pre order and swaping my One for a 4

    • lunator100hd .

      Biggest deal to me is the elite controler , i have ps4 and i want an xboxone just for this controller.

      • shantzonpoint

        Just get a titanx1 so you use the elite on both consoles.

        • lunator100hd .

          Where can i find this?

          • shantzonpoint

   They just came out with a new firmware update so it no longer cuts out while the Dualshock 4 authenticates. You should be good to go with this now! My nephew is using his elite on his ps4 with this.

          • lunator100hd .

            Thanks for the info mate.

          • shantzonpoint

            No problem. Hope it helps you kick some ass!

      • Carl

        Elite, RIIIIIIIIIIIGHT…”In the box you’ll find… AA Batteries” lol

      • Eddie Redgrave

        Same here but i read an article somewhere that they use the same plastic thumbstick module as a reguler controller so hoping some average joe decides to open one and post a video before i would buy one, i already have a scuf.

  • Mikey9835

    Im a PlayStation fanboy, but I think console wars are ridiculous. The comments during the Paris games week, were toxic.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Not long now till happiness for Call of Duty players 😀

  • So far it looks like it will be.
    Microsoft’s looking to be in extra good shape this holiday season, even without the DLC exclusivity.
    I work at GameStop and Black Ops 3 preorders for Xbox One at my store are double what they are on PS4. I think Xbox One copies are at like 127 and PS4 only has 64.
    Interested to see though if it’s like that anywhere else.

  • Do any of you peoples here have an Xbox One? I’m kinda looking for some people to play with on Zombies for Shadows of Evil and The Giant

    • Yankeephil

      I have an xbox one but I won’t play it till I can use a PS4 or 360 controller for it, and when it doesn’t take years to navigate the menu

  • ghosts sucks


  • Dallas Phillips

    Bro there’s no COD Champs on Xbox Either?? i was not aware of that 🙁

  • Michael Romo

    Lol. Microsoft is still confident about their CoD appeal. I’m not for console wars, but Microsoft is looking pathetic in the CoD area

    • GinsuVictim

      How so? Still a better controller for CoD than a PS4 controller, especially with the X1 Elite.

      • The great one

        Hey remember when you said that you can have all the offline features you needed on bo3. Did you read the last part on that one it said “the box arts states that in order to play bo3 on last Gen an internet connection is required. explain it if you can.

        • GinsuVictim

          It will have offline bots. Quit being a cunt.

  • imBATMAN

    Wii U is far better than PC and xbox and PS

  • spartanelite

    I wonder which one currently has the most precious orders last time I checked it was still the Xbox

    • matt murdock

      how do you find th preorder count, i went on that vg charts and it only gave me weekly preorders

    • sion

      Yea,no. Places don’t count bundles nor digital so there is no why to know which one has the most most. Lol vchartz.

  • Choco Da Great

    They keep talking about their line up but it isnt that great.

  • Jay Evan

    I feel like Microsoft is (practically) pretty much the best way to go, considering all the new stuff they are improving on. Imagine linking The PC version of Black ops 3 with the xbox one version.

  • Shane

    After cod backstabbed microsoft and xbox at e3 and said “playstation is the new home of cod” how can xbox and microsoft even like cod? They should hate them,
