so we are all aware xbox pays activision for early release of the map packs.. well do you not find it strange how the xbox version of black ops has better graphics & frame rate & the fact on the xbox version two different usernames can go online on the same console. The xbox version also auto loads to the multiplayer menu & has better servers & is actually playable compared to ps3 version where 9 out of 10 games ends due to connection/server problems!!! I personally think theirs a conflict of interests going on their & i have contacted watchdog & trading standards as mw2 looks almost identical on xbox & ps3 so why the change for black ops after they got a cash payout from xbox???
I have both versions (unfortunately my friends decided to buy the PS3's one, so i followed them, but after a week i discarded it to get the Xbox's one), and i completely agree with you. The PS3's version in inferior in everything (native resolution, texture quality, framerate, sound effects, matchmaking, lag etc.) and if you own both consoles (like me) and you really want to buy COD BO (not a great game at all, it was a real let down for me...), stick with the Xbox's version, it's much better (but, again, not a great game in my opinion).
I totally agree. I'm currently thinking about rebuying the first Modern Warfare for online gaming since I'm simply disappointed by the overall performance, slowdowns, lags, etc. Does anyone here still play it? Still enough players online?
There are loads of people still on COD4 I think. I might go back to it because this game is a huge let down. Why is the Xbox so much better than the PS3?! PS3 is the later release, why didn't sony have a look at the Xbox and say 'Oh, that works really well! Lets include that.'
I traded in the PS3 version for the xbox version, as a few of my mate were saying it was better. Very slightly better on Xbox but only just. I don't see it as a conspiracy I just think they've made huge errors. Even the latest made no difference. Don't trade like me, it's a problem with the game, not the console. I'm going to trade back so when they finally get a patch out that works I have it on the PS3
I've gone back to the 1st COD Modern Warfare, and its a relief. IMO its the best online multiplayer shooter with the best maps and the most fun. The game is nearly 4 years old now and its still the best. There are still a fair few people online so its easy to get a game.
I'd think twice about Bad Company 2. It's not a bad game but its twice as bad online as COD BO. Loses the server more than any game ever has. Not sure if anyone else experiences this but, as a result, for me its unplayable. I don't seem to be experiencing the server issues with COD so far.
Unlike IW it looks as of Treyarch are working to fix the problems with their game. They've already brought out a number of patches. For me most of the issues are a lot better unless I'm host in which case it is a nightmare. Get BFBC2 if you want (Really good game) but it has its own problems and is a very different type of game than COD so don't expect a direct transition.
Thing is if you all go out and buy Microsoft products in the long run all your doing is adding to the problem. Sony have no chance against the zillions of Microsoft $$$. Does everyone really want a one console market in years to come?
I am still playing Black Ops once a day just because of my online friends. Unfortunatelly this online game has a constant LAG PROBLEM. Well... not always but almost every time. It´s so obvious that most of the times the kill cam show you a newer version for your death than the one that you thought you had. Waiting for a better game and obviously none of my online friends (like myself) will ever buy the map pack or any other thing that has to do has Black OPS.
Still... it could be a great online game... if the connections were at the same speed for all the players in the match. Mal_Dor PT
Glad its not just me who thought the KillCam view is often very different from how you experienced dying - the game overall is a complete farce on the PS3. Unplayable online. I have never hated a game experience more.
yip.. have to agree. played all cods online for the last 5 years.. bought black ops...(1 week later) sold black ops.. bought battlefieldbc2 instead and haven't looked back, its an astounding online game. - Here Lies C.O.D. -RIP -
