Thursday Chat, May 2


So Call of Duty: Ghosts has finally been announced, letting us know that we'll be going into the next generation with the same old games - Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4.

In fact it could be the year of the '4,' but hopefully developers will see sense and create some new franchises for the next generation of systems.

Anyway, out topic today will focus on the newly announced Call of Duty: Ghosts. Are you excited for this game? What significance could it have that it'll first be shown off at the 'New Generation' Xbox event? Could this be a Next Xbox timed exclusive? Would this swing your decision about what console to buy?

Questions, Questions. Let's Chat!

A little. The guys from Infinity Ward coming out and saying outright that they didn't want to take the easy path and make MW4 is a good thing. A new engine was needed, and they've said they have it. Although if they did like they did for Modern warfare and license and mod IDTECH, then I'm concerned. Because IDTECH5 was awful! I'll reserve any judgement until the game releases, but last night's "teaser" was hardly a teaser of anything unless they were planning on "The Deadliest Warrior 3"

I have no interest in this, I'll be getting the new consoles but this will not sway my decision one way or the other

I couldn't care less about the new Call of Duty - I like to play games with characters you can feel a connection with & a story that grips you. Not these lazy, carbon copy games that are exactly the same game that you bought a year ago, with a different skin on it! A new engine?! Well done, you've been using the same one for the last 6 years, it's about time you invested in some new tech! It will make no difference to me if its a timed exclusive for xbox or not. It could be an xbox exclusive all together, but that wouldn't sell me a console! Why would you make a £400 purchase based on one piece of software?! Madness!

I was kind of with you, until you said "Why would you make a £400 purchase based on one piece of software?! Madness" I have spent much more based on software availability. And if you are a hardcore call of duty player, then your £400 purchase should go towards where you will get the best experience for what you play, surely?

Don't care about CoD, haven't done in a long time, they could add naked gogo dancers and exploding squirrels and I still wouldn't care.

As a huge Mass Effect fan and THAT is the only game that would make me pick an xbox 360 two over the PS4, regardless of what I can get on the PS4 Mass Effect exclusivity is something else entirely. So yeah, laying out £400 for a piece of software is something a lot of people would be willing to do.

Not bothered really has just become FIFA everyone knows there will be a new one every year until people stop buying it then that will be the way. Call of Duty is not for me but a bit snobby to hate on people that do like it as each to there own. I see shopto just announced on facebook that they are not taking preorders for COD due to some dispute with activision.

I was just reading that. I would say it's probably because shopto are one of the few that stick to Acti's shipping date rules and then get bombarded with abuse when people get their games late. Fair play to them.. Acti are perfectly within their rights to put the restrictions there, and Shoto don't need the hassle

Yeah presume there is a clause to say that nobody can get the game before release date. I remember when I ordered the Gears of War 3 Epic edition it was despatched on the Friday but was held at parcel force till the Tuesday release date

Call of Duty is one of the few that Acti try to enforce. But Shopto is the only one I have come across that stuck to it. I don't blame shopto for not stocking, or at least waiting out Acti to see if they can get a better deal. The amount of abuse they took over MW3 on the forums when they were up was amazing (AJ, if they're lurking still, can attest to that) and I wouldn't blame them for preventing their staff from taking that kind of shit from rabid pre-pubichairgrowers

I don't really like shooters but I like CoD games because of the Domination multiplayer mode. I like story mode too. It won't influence which console I buy though if it turns out to be a timed exclusive or something. If I loved shooters, maybe it might, but if anything exclusive is going to determine what console I get, it would have to be an RPG thing like Dragon Age 3 or Fallout 4.

See, that's the thing for me, franchises do influence me. Just not Call of Duty. Killzone 4 and Infamous 3 will mean that PS4 will be the first next gen machine in my house.

@troublemaker - I just think that to spend that kind of money on a console based on the fact that you get multi-player maps for it a few weeks before others is mental. I'd rather see a nice big list of first & third party fully exclusive games before spending that kind of wedge. Maybey thats just my age showing now tho! @ Gloria - Oh, I don't know about that! Exploding squirrels would be awesome!

@marty and while I agree with you, to a point. If you are one of the millions that only play call of duty, surely your console choice would be based on where call of duty gets the better deal? I'm not saying that I would, but the exclusives sell me a console. and Call of Duty for me begins and ends with the story campaign so I care very little about the maps/exclusivity/whatever If it ended up completely exclusive to a console I didn't own, I would get over it. But again, if it was the only thing I played, then my decision would greatly be affected by the decisions behind exclusivity. And that, my friend, is definitely my age showing :)

@ troublemaker - I agree with what you are saying & forget (more deliberately than not!) that there are idiots out there that CoD is the only thing that they will play! If that is all that floats your boat, then please fire away & spend your hard earned wedge on whatever you want. All I was meaning to say was that, for me anyway, I would never spend that kind of money based on one piece of software. You're right tho, there are so many people that call themselves gamers, yet all they play is CoD. They don't know what they are missing out on!
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 4 years ago
Unfortunately for guys like us lot here, CoD is such a money spinner, that more focus is given to roping in the cod player than the real ones (see - Xbox exclusivity) and it means that for a large portion of gamers, particularly on the Xbox, that actual software worth buying that particular machine for is getting pretty sparse and instead it is the machine of choice for those with no idea what actual gaming can be. But hey, far be it for me to tell them how to spend the money their parents made by selling off their other offspring!

I will be getting a PS4 next generation because of the games Troublemaker eluded to earlier: Killzone 4, Infamous Second Son, and perhaps if there is to be an Uncharted 4. Even though I play and like Call of Duty it isn't good enough to sway me towards a particular console next gen.

I would not suprise me, if CoD: Ghost goes with 1 month DLC exclusive for Xbox. I will be getting PS4 and CoD: Ghost having 1 month DLC exclusive for Xbox, don't change the fact.

Maybe its going more into footballers life and you get to recreate what they do in hotel rooms. If you have kinect you can recreate Ashley Coles antics and the best one gets voted for each week on ea's website

Football, Teammate and intelligence don't seem like they would go together very well. certainly not AND be realistic

Lol bindiana, Footballers can be intelligent too! lol. Would make a change cus people wouldn't be man u in fear of having to recreate Rooney's old women antics. Also nobody would be Bayern cus of Ribery being a paedo.

Just in case no one has noticed ASDA has price dropped the Nintendo Wii U today and some games. Basic edition is 149, premium edition is 199. Judging by the fact that the premium edition is no longer available on the website it looks like this might be them trying to get rid of stock. Quite a price drop when you consider how much the Wii U was at launch about 6 months ago.

Recieved Star trek today, sending it back already. What a shocking game. Worst of the year so far for me.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
