For the past few weeks, Activision and Treyarch have come under fire from numerous outlets for cheating gamers by shipping out cheaper-than-the-cheapest copies of worldwide phenomenon Call of Duty: Black Ops for the PC and PS3 platform.
Now the latest image circulating the Internet is an image grab of the game on the PS3:
Yeah, have a look at the picture above. If you still haven’t realized what’s wrong, let me break it down for you: this image is of Black Ops running on the PS3. And in the background ( bottom-right ) you can see “No Xbox LIVE Party chat”. Wait, Xbox? PS3? I don’t even know what console the game is running on!
It’s perfectly plausible that the image was photoshopped, but it sure doesn’t look like it – because many others on various sites are reporting the same error. Activision just reached new heights ( and has consequently set new standards ) when it comes to badly-porting a game. At least now isn’t it completely justifiable to ask for a complete refund? Sure, this can be fixed via patches and future updates; but this just goes to show how Activision is treating faithful PC and PS3 gamers – by using them as game testers!
So in case you regret picking up the game, go to your nearest game store, and get your copy of Black Ops exchanged!
