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

Dan Amrich's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, Ubisoft

Welcome_to_Nuketown

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.

This is very good news! Plus the added bonus of playing Nuketown as many times as you want!

@Dan

Are we gonna see some MW3 gameplay at the Microsoft E3 confrence like usual this year? Also, when will I be able to preorder my Hardened Edition of the game? We all know there’s gonna be a Hardend and Prestige Edition. One last question, third map pack for Black Ops?

    Don’t know. I am hoping to attend all the big press conferences at E3 but I don’t have invites for all of them yet.

@LaTiNxKiLL
BO,AND PORTAL 2 are all awsome but if you like puzzles and you have reflexes get portal 2 if you like shooting and you have reflexes get black ops

B-Real206 said:

May 19th, 6:53 pm

I also notice alot of hate for COD. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T BUY IT OR PLAY IT. Please don’t clutter up the comments with useless drivel. R&C All for one isn’t for me but I’m not in that section writing stuff like “Y U make dis game it $ucks” ————————————————————————————————————————>

When will the store be online? I wanna get first strike

Buhd said:

May 19th, 6:55 pm

Wow why does everyone obsess over the auto-aim? Oh I’m sorry as everyone else puts it quick scoping. I think that they should offer a separate section like the 24/7 Nuketown where the quick scoping is unlocked. Just an idea that way people can use the auto aim all they want.

I’m Gonna Prestiege! :)

my Black ops have been giving me problems ever since the network went down it freezes and it’s the only one of my games that does that i even went to buy another one and it did the same thing thinking it may have been the disc but its not the disc im confused y is this happening when i first got this game everything was fine now i can’t even play because my system has a hard time reading any black ops disc help me.

somebody broke into my home and stole my copy of Black Ops last week. I really like the game and would buy it again but this time I’d like to buy a download version just to be safe. Why isn’t the game being sold on the PSN like it is on XBL? (And I know the PSN store is down at the moment)

Dan,

I don’t play BO a whole lot, but your post is poetry my friend. You are the freaking man for your patience with these nimrods. BTW, how baked were you when you took your profile pic?

Peace

    I have always been clean — I’m one of those high on life guys (but I do enjoy an occasional tequila). I tried to put on a smile that was genuine but relaxed. I hate that “oversmiling” thing people do in photos.
