Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Seven million copies of Modern Warfare 2 were sold on it's first day

Haaaaaaaaaaaaappy Monday everyone!

I don’t know if any of you know but there was a spoof a few weeks ago involving the much anticipated addition in the Modern Warfare range. When the “spoof” was noted by many gaming and technology websites, fans were going mental (me included!). However, Activision released a statement that they have no official release date of Modern Warfare 3, let alone the stage which there in regarding the development of the game.

Now I’m not one to deliver bad news….

…and I’m still not! Why would I upset my loyal followers?

On Friday at work (don’t tell my manager), I was made aware of a link from an Australian website who said Activision are planning to release a statement this month regarding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. I cross checked the news with a UK newspaper The Independent who confirmed this!

Looking at past history this is perfect timing for Activision because during the build up to Modern Warfare 2, Activision/Infinity Ward (the team which bought you Modern Warfare 2 NOT Black Ops) released a statement in April and released the game the 3rd quarter of 2009. Can we be looking at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 by September/October 2011? I sure hope so! Also, EA leaked the date of Battlefield 3 which is due to go head to head with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – it looks like the war is on!

I’ll keep you guys posted but until then, I hope you have a great day and an even better week.

Take Care

Call of Duty: Black Ops – An Ongoing Problem?

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops was the biggest selling game in 2010

Hi everyone,

The latest game in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops, has been causing some up roar in the gaming world since the day of it’s release. No I’m not referring to the games violence, realism or storyline but the fact that the developers Treyarch have yet to release a patch which fixes the problems in the PC and Sony PS3 format of the game.

Many gamers playing Call of Duty: Black Ops on the PC and Sony PS3 have experienced random glitches and have been thrown out of online multiplayer games (which is Call of Duty’s biggest selling point) have sent endless amount of complaints to the developers but nothing has been done…yet! Angry gamers have expressed their views directly to the publishers Activision who have released a statement a few days ago stating there will be a patch available in the near future to resolve any problems which gamers are having….I’m sorry a patch is coming 3 months after it’s release!

Personally, I’ve played and experienced the problems Sony PS3 users are facing. Call of Duty: Black Ops is an amazing game, there’s no question about that but the sheer fact that gamers are shelling out £45/$50 for a game which, lets face it, doesn’t work properly really puts a downer on such a successful franchise. I know many games have a few glitches here and there (an example being one one of my top 5 games of all time – Fallout 3) but for Activision and Treyarch to release a game which is faulty on the day of release and still is 3 months on is TOTALLY unacceptable.

Let me know if you’ve experienced any problems with Call of Duty: Black Ops!

Until next time,

Call of Duty Black Ops: PS3 owners demanding refund

Good (early) morning guys and girls,

It’s about 12:50 am here in the UK and I’ve just had a lovely evening with my girlfriend, her flat mate and her partner playing board games. It bought back many memories of childhood which seems such a long time ago…man i’m old!!

Anyways I was browsing the ‘net before I attempt to go to sleep, I came across that PlayStation 3 owners of the much acclaimed game Call of Duty: Black Ops have demanded a refund from the publishers Activision due to the “sub-par graphics, buggy software” when compared to the Xbox 360 version.

Treyarch who previously developed Call of Duty World at War have been blamed for adding further functionality in the Xbox 360 version of the game than the Playstation 3. An example being Xbox 360 users are able to sign in to more than one account when playing in split screen whilst the Playstation 3 version only allows one. Further more, gamers argued that Treyarch “have created a unfinished, sloppy and degenerate game for the Playstation 3 console when the Playstation 3 has games that out shine the Call of Duty Franchise today.”

The petition holding 3,800+ signatures has been bought to (the developers) Treyarch attention but ultimately it will be down to Activision if the refunds to the angry gamers will be granted.

If you are a Playstation 3 Call of Duty Black Ops user, be sure to let me know of your thoughts. Are you happy with the game? If not, please feel free to share your views.

Happy COD’ing!
