PSXE Poll Update: Gamers Undecided On Black Ops
Well, that glossy debut trailer may have swayed some of our readers, because the results from this past week's poll aren't exactly definitive.
I think it goes without saying that the PSXE community as a whole isn't all that enamored with the massively popular Call of Duty series, but after the explosive debut of that trailer, and the promises of a more robust single-player campaign, we wanted to know what y'all thought... And as it turns out, while the largest chunk still say they don't care about the game, the rest is split almost evenly between "looks awesome," "looks good," and "maybe." Regardless of personal preference, you really can't deny the inherent quality of most all CoD shooters and Black Ops developer Treyarch has proven themselves again and again. The idea of using Vietnam as a new environment - amongst other new locales - is a good one in our view, and as a blockbuster piece of entertainment, the new installment could really fit the bill. We would suggest giving it a chance but of course, as it comes out on November 9, there may be all sorts of competition for it... Can anyone say, Gran Turismo 5?
And speaking of GT5, let's find out when you think the release date will be: it sits at November 1 in GameStop's database but we all know it's a placeholder date. Sony has been adamant in their claims that it will absolutely be out before the end of the year, and recent rumors place it as early as September. We're really hoping for an official date at E3, which is why we're asking now...whaddya say?
