Enjoy Double XP for Call of Duty: Black Ops This Weekend – Only on PS3
72 Author Replies


Leo Tolstoy once said, “The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” Ask any PlayStation gamer who missed out on the Call of Duty: Black Ops double XP weekend a few weeks ago, and they’ll tell you: Leo knew what he was talking about. While other platforms soaked up the extra experience points, PS3 gamers had to hang in there while PlayStation put everything in order behind the scenes. In cases like that, patience isn’t a virtue — patience is a pain in the butt.

As the double-XP date loomed nearer, more and more PlayStation gamers wondered if they’d be able to take part in the festivities, and Treyarch – developer of Black Ops – swore to fans that they would not be forgotten. This weekend, they’re quickly making good on that promise, with a double-XP period that lasts from this Friday, May 20th at 10am all the way through the weekend and beyond – the good stuff keeps coming until 10am on Tuesday the 24th. What’s more, that’s going to be even sweeter thanks to a Nuketown 24/7 playlist that’s being added just for the event. Nuketown is my favorite map because it’s small and chaotic – and the close confines often result in high kill counts, which can really push you to the next level of Prestige in a hurry during a bonus XP weekend. It’s a fast, intense map – but don’t let that stop you from uncovering some of Nuketown’s hidden secrets.

So if the two most powerful warriors are patience and time…well, you’ve been patient, and it took some time. This weekend, enjoy being the warrior.

  • Fox-Hound--1

    Black ops sucks *RUN*

    • Dan Amrich

      To each their own, man — play whatever makes you happy. But you’ll have a hard time saying this is a bad thing for people who dig the game. :)

  • Fox-Hound--1

    Sorry dan, i was kidding

  • money123451

    hek ya

  • i like this very much. i disklike fox hound #8

    Again Thank YOU!!!!

  • Sweet!

  • 4 reasons why not to play black opes…

    1) Killzone 3
    2) Socom 4
    3) MAG
    4) All the games abuv r move compatible with the sharpshooter

    Sharpshooter = hardcore gameplay

    Black ops has nothing

    • Dan Amrich

      I love light gun games — I basically grew up in arcades, and during my honeymoon, we kicked off every day with a round of Virtua Cop — but I would not say that games that are not compatible with Move have “nothing”…!

  • Also, can you guys fix the glitch on Havana where Care Packages can get stuck on top of the army truck in the middle of the street. It looks as if it’s floating. Search Spinout209 Black Ops on youtube to see what I’m talking about

  • supercubanito


  • I stopped playing Black Ops a couple months ago, but I just wanted to say thanks for doing this for the PS3 crowd. It is much appreciated.

    Maybe I’ll hop on for a bit this weekend…

  • xbox live people need to learn that paying a ton of cash doesn’t stop ps3 fans from being awsomer than them at black ops

  • modnation double XP please!

  • So i guess the PS store will be up soon huh? I just hope my $147 is still in my account.

  • #14 – Using the Sharpshooter doesn’t make it hardcore gameplay. It might make for a more enjoyable session, but I wouldn’t say it’s more hardcore than games that do not use the sharpshooter. Also, Black Ops actually does have something. They have the Pro Circuit for MLG. Next one is in Columbus Ohio in June where a Team of 4 will walk away with a $25,000 prize and a trophy.

  • #19 – I heard it’s suppose to be back on the 24th and that week will have 2 or 3 store updates. I hope it’s true, I jsut want me free games and PSN+ stuff.

  • brettzilla97

    When is the new map pack coming out for us PS3 users Dan?

    • Dan Amrich

      No firm date yet. The Store is still unavailable, so until that comes back up, I don’t expect to hear a specific date. Give ’em a little more time to put things back in place.

  • what the f im not goin to have all the maps cuz i just got my system back from service (s#*t)

  • @ Spinout209 Thank for the info i just wish we had more choices of the free games to choose from i already have most of the games on that list.

  • RichieAppel

    Ball of Dookie: Whack Ops

    • Dan Amrich

      Really? I’m not offended, but I’m not impressed, either. :)

  • Blackstar131


  • Kavewoman48

    @ Dan Amrich

    Excellent news only one problem…..what’s going to happen for those of us that are unable to play because the log in site to reset our passwords is down for maintence?

    • Dan Amrich

      I do believe Sony is looking into that for you. Keep your eyes on the blog for news updates on that.

  • i_like_toast

    not a FPS gamer, but it’s good to hear companies that have no obligation doing the right thing.

    Treyarch /Activision give yourself one pat on the back …aw hell make it two ^.^;



  • sharpshooter0318


  • im glad we get nuketown 24/7 that is a sweet mode!!!!

  • HeavenlySnipesx

  • why can’t we have nuketown 24/7 all the time?

  • @ Dan Amrich
    I hope they make this a perminent mode

  • DAMIT I wish I still had Blackops oh well cant wait to win in your contest.

  • theultimatenub


  • HaPpYGlmOreMaN

    @Dan Amrich

    Will the 24/7 nuketown be up forever or just the weekend also will they be giving a quickscoping patch?

  • This is awesome . . . Words do not describe the gratitude of this situation.

  • nuketowms secrets so zombie secrets are the only good secrets on black ops

  • Nuketown 24/7, LOL! I would never go into that, but I bet 95% of the BO players during this double XP weekend will be in those lobbies.

  • nuketown 24/7 is only up for 4 days didn’t you read
    @ HaPpYGImOreMaN

  • Why is it called “24/7” Nuketown if it’s only for the weekend? I mean seriously, last time I checked, 24/7 means 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    • Dan Amrich

      Because it’s shorter than “Nuketown All The Time With No Other Maps In The Rotation.”

  • BrOnCO_fOoTBalL

    @ Dan amrich im still waiting for my account to come back up is there a way that you can make the double Xp a litttle longer please and thank you

  • now i wish i dint let my friend borrow this game!

  • kingsam1327

    Quick question the time is in PDT,CDT,or EST??

    • Dan Amrich

      The start and end times are 10AM Pacific, as that’s where Treyarch is located, and they are the folks flipping that double XP switch on the servers. Sorry, should have mentioned that in the original post.

  • Yes Im Happy NOW

  • Hi Dan!

    Good to see you on the PS Blog!

    I’m also glad to see that Activision stayed true to their promise to look after PS3 players. Even though though I don’t own COD: Black Ops I appreciate and recognise good customer service when I see it.

    Thank you!

  • footballrule

    YES! I’m already 15th prestige rank 41, i’ll be able to reach 50 this weekend thanks to double XP. Thanks Treyarch and Activision!
