What gives??? activision exclusive anything for PS3? 360 owners get special treatment and we get a bundle almost 8mnths after it hits shelves? No thanks.

Activision bled the guitar hero franchise dry, cod series will soon follow with their inability to release a game that has a functioning multi-player mw2 did and blops too. Wake up and smell the horribly supported and horribly programmed cookie cutter games.

Wow…they are releasing this 6 months AFTER the game comes out?

They are just milking and milking, it’s getting ridiculous.

Why can’t we get special PS3 consoles?? Like get ones that have sick graphics all over it for top PS3 games like Uncharted or GoW?? That would make me by a new console… not some [DELETED] bundle that includes the [DELETED] CoD game in the entire franchise!!

@StingrayX I know right… even though MW3 was just announced to be released this November. And lets not forget how many CoD games hate B Ops in general in the first place!!

Too bad treyarch F***ING RUINED THE GAME. Horrible connection, can’t join parties, frame rate is God awful, looks like a Ps2 game, same audio file for multiple guns, etc. Instead of doing this, why don’t they fix the d*** thing? Also..@PLAGUED86 – Please tell me your joking? CoD is far from quality and it’s the easiest multiplayer game out there..

@NinjaNabs

“@OleGunnar i dont know where you get your info but the cod games are more suited for the ps3 as it was originally made for the ps3 console.sorry if you prefer playing cod on xbox but a lot of people rather play it on ps3 (like me).”

Dude, I seriously do not get where you came up with this. I ONLY game on PlayStation systems. Have done since the original PlayStation. When I said that it was “willfully inferior to it’s 360 counterpart,” that wasn’t a jab at the PS3. It was clearly a comment about the developer and publisher of COD: BO.

Why reward a developer/publisher that treats you second best?

Work on your reading comprehension, friend.

Want an example of no support???? Go play a game in cod4….hacked lobbies, MW2…. top 5000 players in kdr ladder are hackers, black ops single player, and multiplayer have issues with melee attack actually w@w does too and hitmarkers SUCK….put your useless crosshairs on someone 25% of time and pull the trigger you might as well be giving warning shots giving yoursellf away. have fun!!

Why buy COD: Black Ops when MW3 is coming out on the 8th of Novemeber!


111

+ Hellman on May 25th, 2011 at 8:24 am said:

Your not buying COD Black Ops your getting it free when you purchase the ps3. Look at it this way either you buy a ps3 for 299.99 with no game or you buy this bundle for 299.99 and get Black Ops. I don’t understand why people are complaining. If worse comes to worse just sell the game and make yourself some profit. This game is still popular for the casual game and the value is still decent.

A lot of people hating on CoD. Honestly the only good CoD games are ones from the MW series. Thankfully after B Ops screwed the pooch Activision isn’t letting Treyarc make another one. And to all those BF fans. The reason there’s more CoD fanbase is because there’s Normal mode and HARDCORE mode. BF is like playing CoD online in Normal mode… whole clips to kill people and 2… that’s right TWO shots from a sniper rifle to kill someone. If BF wants to compete then they need to change the online to have Hardcore modes for gamers who prefer things to be a little more on the realistic side when shooting someone. Oh and to all the people who complain that CoD comes out every year… you’re wrong. The only good CoD games (MW series) come out every 2 years. And BF is going the same way now as well since BF 2 came out last year and now BF 3 is coming out this year. BF is technically coming out faster then any CoD series since CoD has more then one developer.

@111 v how many other average to poor playing games should be given away as a bundle before people will buy it? Just 1, I really don’t know who reviews these games and gives them high ratings they obviously never tried to play online with anyone on a friends list for the first month and a half. Of course the game doesn’t need beta testing WE DID THE TESTING FOR THEM IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS EVERY YEAR THE NEW GAMES COME OUT. A$$holes!

Lol I should have waited and gotten this with my tax return. Instead I got the $400 bundle with the Playstation Move.

+ nikrel on May 25th, 2011 at 8:39 am said:

Such and awful game. Why in the world would you make a bundle out of it, with all the problems. Activision even said that the PS3 version is inferior to the XBox360. This makes no sense, I would rather see a Battlefield set than a Black Ops set.
I’m never buying a CoD title again.


119

+ blakseed on May 25th, 2011 at 8:46 am said:

Little late for this isn’t it? What, did Treyarch just realize that BLOPS is on PS3? Maybe the money they make from this will go towards better PS3 ports of their games. Nahh. Who am I kidding.

+ tinycpw91 on May 25th, 2011 at 8:50 am said:

@114 your logic is a little skewed here, you can’t just count the IF cod games, the treyarch games are still cod’s, so no, there has been a cod game, every year since cod4. Also, BFBC2 has hardcore modes, and if you’re playing in the non-hardcore modes, you actually have to get a headshot on the person to get a one shot kill, it requires a little more skill then just shooting a guy in the leg with an R700 and getting the kill.


123

+ victr1 on May 25th, 2011 at 8:52 am said:

Why would anyone want this? Makes no sense. The games been out for a while now and the First Strike DLC has also been out for a while. Wouldn’t it have made more sense to release this bundle months ago with vouchers for both First Strike and Escalation DLC?


124

+ Burdmayn on May 25th, 2011 at 8:54 am said:

While I’m sure this will convince many people to buy a ps3, I feel like Sony is selling themselves, and their loyal first party developers, short on this bundle. At the very least they could have included some form of demo for the awesome exclusive titles they have coming up this year. Especially when you take into consideration the DLC deal Microsoft has regarding the COD franchise.

THis is kinda funny… But anyone is laughing to the bank with the real ps3 and psn gamers around the world money. I wont buy this bundle . Its good to line your pockets but with better games comingout onthe sony brand .no ned to buy thei bundle,.

I just wonder when somny is going make journey console bundle. I mean real console bundle. with designed a console. See that how sell a game and seell consoles. Not many has heard of the journey or a few inki cree games. If sony did that they roll inthe money becuase family and original games breed more gamer to the market to see what the fuss is about.

but to those who want to buy this, good luck, play the console night and day also know you can use cod game as drink coaster lol..

Gamestop already has I.d tags for mw3 on the back of the tags it labels the developers and producers of the game as infinty ward sledgehammer games an actavision also while I’ll get mw3 check feedback webshow on g4 tv . Com either the brink or the la Noir eps mw3 is planning a subscription service for better guns early access to maps and the ability to set parameters for online matches which that last one I like because I really getting tired of 4 yr olds killing me teabagging my body and telling me what they apparently did to my mom last night

LMAO, are you serious? Now that Everyone who cares, has already bought the Game, and the map pack.
So lemme get this straight? Your calling this a deal? A 10 month old game, with a 2 month old map pack? How bout a newer game, with new DLC….oh wait, its sony. We havent even got our free content from the store that we were promised. More lameness from sony………


131

+ GEMINIVice on May 25th, 2011 at 9:08 am said:

This is probably an attempt to help with the losses accrued during the PSN outage….but this still doesn’t make any sense.

1. This should’ve been done at launch when the game itself actually released. New game > Old game. Not after it’s been out for a while (especially since it’s a CoD game and these come out every year).

2. Seeing as the majority of third party devs sometimes shafts the PS3 version with less attention than the 360 version (sometime just half-@$$ the version altogether), The PS3 exclusives are easily the better games to showcase when talking about the PS3. These are the games that should be getting PS3 bundles mostly (announcing a bundle for inFAMOUS 2 and MotorStorm: Apocalypse for the summer would have made more sense…if not, just a better thing to do).

oh yea, did I say B-Ops nearly killed my drive to play COD….lag lag lag, Migrating host…lost connection….bla bla bla, overpowering killstreaks, no vehicles, guns suck, and maps cater to campers. It had potential but treyarch screwed that all up.

….and another thing, when November comes around, the only game that should be considered for a PS3 bundle is Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

To hell with CoD (besides Activision is most likely gonna be concerned with the 360 version and bundle it with Microsoft’s box anyway…think they they’ve been doing that for the past few years).

Be smart about that Sony…

+ Basindo on May 25th, 2011 at 9:55 am said:

How about a non-crap game. Or hey maybe an actual good bundle like for example when Infamous 2 releases you could do PS3+ Infamous 1+ Infamous 2. Now, you could do that for $299 or make it heroes edition plus include all the dlc to make it $349.

Or you can do Killzone 2 and 3…or even better…Uncharted 1, 2, and 3 when it releases. That will be the greatest bundle ever. If you do not get Uncharted when you get a PS3 you might as well have bought a 360.

I wish Cod was only on 360…then all the losers who play only Cod have to go to 360, (which it is far better on there anyway…I don’t get the people who ONLY play Cod and yet play it on PS3 which just gets ported from 360 with lag, bugs, worse graphics, and 360 gets DLC a month early…) and the real gamers will stay on PS3. Comon Microsoft, just pay Activision a couple million to make it only on 360, that would be awesome.

Holding back the gaming industry is damn right.
There was a time when being a gamer meant being a total social outcast. But that was cool with us, because we used the power of online gaming and the internet to find others like us and become friends with people with common interests. We were an entire sub-culture. Then, CoD came along, and pretty soon every jock on the planet was spending his sandwich-filled nights with an Xbox controller in his hands.
Now, I’m not going to say Modern Warfare 1 and 2 were bad; they hurt our subculture a great deal, but they were good games! But people were so excited about Black Ops simply because they wanted more maps for their Modern Warfare 2 game. If they wanted more maps and more weapons, well, that’s what downloadable content is for. Black Ops is MW2 with a new coat of paint, really, and the hype around it was really the only reason why people call it the best shooter of 2010. Let’s get real guys; Halo Reach was way better.

This is a great deal! They are basically giving you Black Ops free with a DLC. And who cares if another COD is on the way we still got 6 months to go maybe longer if it gets delayed. I also think that it is really retarded of certain people posting in here just to say this game sucks! Or Why release this when another COD is on the way. Then throw in a smart comment at the end. Nice going sony. People just be happy Sony is trying to save us money and try to advertise the game better.

what do you know about the gaming industry kid, you sound so stupid its making me laugh. first of all the fact that you think COD is holding back the gaming industry, go and get a life loser im pretty sure world of warcraft killed it for many people, but who are we to judge people for their choice in games. If you think Black ops Is so bad do all of us a favor and go make that badass video game that everyone loves and has been waiting for………..im waiting………………….. thats right nothing so shut up and play your damn playstation.
