Really, what are they thinking?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] October 19 2009 7:44 AM EDT

You don't count as a game developer until you make horrendous mistakes that a small child would hesitate making.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] October 19 2009 9:19 AM EDT

They have special ops mode tho.

{cb2}Dinh October 19 2009 9:22 AM EDT

yeah the spec ops mode is what im most psyched about anyway ;) Zombies is only in World at War Henk...

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] October 19 2009 9:26 AM EDT

I'm only getting the 360 version so I dont have to worry about this problem, =) Oh wait, the MW1 was already like this on 360....

Brakke Bres [Ow man] October 19 2009 9:32 AM EDT

Nope plenty of home brew zombie mods for CoD4

Lameeeee

Kompton Kidd October 19 2009 3:57 PM EDT

Why would anyone get it on PC? I had both PC and 360 versions, and the PC version sucked.

Demigod October 19 2009 4:08 PM EDT

For modded games, that's why. I'll play it on the 360, but I used to play PC shooters, and they were far better. Especially those modified games... and especially with wall hacks.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 19 2009 4:12 PM EDT

And the far better controls.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] October 19 2009 4:28 PM EDT

Oh yeah, wall hacks made the game soo much more fun, especially for the people getting killed by the hacker..........

>.<

Kompton Kidd October 19 2009 4:33 PM EDT

The mods are the only reason I see. I prefer the 360 controller over any keyboard. I hate keyboards for games.

"I prefer the 360 controller over any keyboard. I hate keyboards for games."

The main factor in PC-gaming awesomeness is the mouse, not the keyboard :)

BHT October 19 2009 5:15 PM EDT

Doesn't bother me any, my PS3 will do just fine.

I hate the mouse just as much, controllers are soo much better.

{cb2}Dinh October 19 2009 5:19 PM EDT

They aren't releasing it for PS3 BHT ;)

BHT October 19 2009 5:34 PM EDT

WAIT...WHAT?!?

BHT October 19 2009 5:36 PM EDT

Wow Dinh, dont scare me like that.
It is being relased on PS3 still according to my online sources.

Also COD6 anyone?

sorry for the triple, but just to confirm:

"Modern Warfare 2 is set to release early this November, and will be on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The Playstation 3 is our leading platform for Modern Warfare 2. The PS3 version will run smoother and have slightly better visuals than the PC and 360 version. We've been working on Modern Warfare 2 ever since we released Call of Duty 4 back in 2007. We would like to thank everyone who is still with the Call of Duty 4 community. We will be releasing more information throughout the coming months, so be patient."

straight from the devs, im glad the game is being developed for the ps3 and ported over. Sony owners usually get screwed when it comes to good games, which are usually developed for the xbox360 and ported over.

"I hate the mouse just as much, controllers are soo much better."

Good joke.
Is that why in the very few games where PC and console gamers could play together (Halo 2, Shadowrun, to name just the ones that come to mind) the PC gamers (and their mouse usage) completely dominated console gamers (that only used their controllers) ?
:P

Brakke Bres [Ow man] October 19 2009 6:11 PM EDT

Title: call of duty 6
Sub title: Modern Warfare 2

Same thing

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] October 19 2009 6:39 PM EDT

What Henk said ^

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 19 2009 7:22 PM EDT

"The PS3 version will run smoother and have slightly better visuals than the PC and 360 version."

Because the PS3 can so obviously handle 1920x1200, 16x AF, 8x AA, and all features on high. Of course.

BHT October 21 2009 2:48 AM EDT

Your PC can only support as much graphics as the game itself has. If your PC overpowers what the game has to offer then it becomes a bit pointless, therefore making the PS3 version just as good, not to mention it probably runs way smoother.

:P


They computer users dominated because using a mouse is as hard as, literally, pointing and clicking. It takes less skill, practice and coordination than does using a controller. Not to mention feels fake as hell.

I think it all depends on what you learned on first. I played doom/duke nukem/tfc/natural selection ... all pc based and using the keyboard/mouse combo. I tried playing my bros on Goldeneye on the Nin64 and got my butt handed to me. I couldn't adjust to that middle joystick thing. Other way around, they couldn't even begin to play a fps shooter online using a PC.

Sorry a PC can handle more graphics then a PS3 can, most of the cases a version that is ported from the consoles gets a graphical boost before it gets released on the PC.

And the ps3 can only handle 1080 and not 1920x1200. That resolution is for the PC with everything on. Sorry the GPU in a PS3 is worse then that in a xbox360. As soon as the consoles can run crysis more smoothly then a PC the you can state that.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 21 2009 8:05 AM EDT

Henk. I was being sarcastic.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] October 21 2009 8:30 AM EDT

ah uh, thought you were a PS3 fanboy :)

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 21 2009 9:05 AM EDT

Lol, weren't we talking just a while ago about our respective PC builds?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] October 21 2009 9:09 AM EDT

Yeah I can remember that. But who knows you gave up on pc's and went console!
