Black Ops 3 360/PS3 will have no campaign, or paint shop mode

Discussion in 'General Gaming Discussion' started by chavosaur, Sep 26, 2015.


    Some new info straight from Treyarch has just arrived, detailing some of the differences between the previous gen and current gen versions of the game.

    The previous generation versions will not include a campaign or a weapon paint customize tool. The developers had this to say:

    Interesting that the full scope of multiplayer can somehow still be made available, but the campaign couldn't. You would think it could have been a multidisc game or have had some other option to offer a campaign for the game.

    Either way, what is your take on this new information?

    Who doesn't own a PS4/Xbone are just excluding themselves from the good things of the games recently released and this news here is the major proof of that if even Activision don't want PS3/X360 peasants money.

    If I could just get the campaign for CoDs for half the price I'd probably buy them every year. They've said time and time again that their audience mostly plays MP, with something like 5% of players ever even bothering to start and finish the SP mode, so it makes sense really.

    I'd say the bad thing is the fact they're even releasing it on those dinosaurs.

    This doesn't make sense. If they didn't want their money they wouldn't release it on last gen at all.

    About time. Free up dev time for MP content and balancing.

    I think it's a good move. I know it sucks for people who can't afford to get into next-gen yet, but it's about time developers stop being held back by limitations imposed by last gen hardware.

    Why even call it Black Ops III when it has absolutely nothing to do with the first 2 games, then?

    EDIT: It's only excluded from PS3 and 360 versions. My mistake. I hope they get a small discount on the game.

    Why is it even coming out for the ps3/360? I mean the ps3 alone is almost 10 years old and we already have the next line of console, why can't we just let them die.

    No campaign?

    Pretty sure sooner or later the online services for PS360 will go down.

    I forgot
    This, basically. Very few people play the campaign of CoD games anymore, I don't think too many people will complain much. I also agree on the campaign part, if they'd sell the SP game for like $25 I'd probably buy that instead of pirating it like I did with the rest of the games after 4.

    Well some people just have other priorities like paying rent or their own house, a car, vacation with the family and so on. Just saying.

    Lol, what makes you think the 360/ps3 version isn't multidisc?
    They are pushing the limits on the nextgen hardware on both single player and multiplayer. Porting multiplayer (which is what everyone plays anyway) probably took long enough so to not delay release due to older console tech was a very wise move. Besides that the number of people that upgraded to new gen consoles wasn't as large as hoped for. So giving people an incentive to make the purchase of a now current gen console is a great thing for the entire console gaming community. The more time you can free up on development the better the end result will be for consumers.
    The reason for backporting it is simple, money. There still are many gamers out there that are playing with last gen consoles. So to capitalize on that they backported it. Hell, I upgraded my kids to xbox 1 but have yet to upgrade myself. (I am going to in the coming weeks though) Honestly after this christmas season I don't look for too many games to be backported to prior gen consoles. I mean have you seen the price drop on current gen?

    I honestly wonder if and when they'll just drop the campaign altogether and start calling it Call of Duty 20XX edition.

    Paying 60 € for a half game. If it's 60€ they can get to the hell.
    Not that I wanna play campaign but I found it rather idiot that they don't try to do it with COD AW PS3 graphics. As long as it works fine it should be good.

    But they are charging full price for half a product. is like they are saying to the customers:
    Activision: and here is CoD BO3 for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
    customer: it's available for Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 too??
    Activision: yeah yeah, but doesn't have half the content.
    customer: I don't care much about that. how much is??
    Activision: don't worry the price is the same, so full price.
    customer: FULL PRICE FOR HALF THE GAME?!!??!
    Activision: you asked for it on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and here it is. if you don't like the price isn't my problem, we fulfilled our promise of releasing the game on last gen.

    I bet the PS360 port was very lazy and every purchase of it is only profit. they ported the game for last gen just in case.
