PlayStation-Call Of Duty Partnership Is Officially "Historic"

There was a time when Call of Duty was kinda synonymous with the Xbox brand.

Every new CoD game was advertised on TV with that big Xbox logo and all downloadable content for each entry was exclusive (for a time) to Microsoft's platform.

But times have changed. All DLC for this week's Call of Duty: Black Ops III will actually enjoy timed exclusivity on PlayStation 4 and Sony is taking advantage of this new "historic" partnership. The company's marketing department is definitely running with it, and as boss Adam Boyes said:

"This is a historic partnership that makes PlayStation the best place to play Call of Duty. The massive reception to the game's multiplayer beta only a few months ago demonstrated the huge appetite our fans have for this franchise and the anticipation for Black Ops III. This is the game our fans want, and we're proud to welcome Call of Duty to its new home on PlayStation 4."

Yes, the multiplayer beta was exclusive to Sony's console and ended up being the biggest-ever beta test on PS4. Previously, Boyes had confirmed that Sony's marketing team-up with Activision for last year's Destiny paved the way for this CoD deal. A few days ago, PlayStation UK marketing manager Lauren Bradley said more shooter fans are gravitating toward PS4, and we've seen FPSs really come to prominence on Sony's consoles in the last few generations.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III launches today, November 6, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The last-gen versions don't have the campaign, and if you pick up the Limited Edition PS4 bundle, you can be eligible to receive a full size Juggernog fridge.

I was watching some streams of Black Ops 3 last night. Looks really good, to be honest.

I think it looks much better than AW. I wonder how the campaign is?

I was amused reading the GameSpot review.

I understand the competitive spirit, playing with friends and just jumping into something fast and having fun but most of the time when I play a game I want to feel like I am doing something productive (funny, right) and I feel that I get more out of my time playing a game with a great story, side missions etc. That's why I stick to my action and RPG games.

I would only get it to play the campain as I did kinda like the AW singleplayer. But for that its just not worth the money. With Star wars bf and fallout out soon though I really dont need another cod game.

My local GameStop had a steady average of about 15 people asking for it(for the hour that I was there around 1 to 2 PM).

I should've watched which platform they were getting it for, but I was too busy trying to find a used game for $20 or under for my own belated birthday present, one that I didn't already have yet.
But alas, I couldn't find a single one(been keeping my eye on GTA5, but it just now dropped to $25($20's self-imposed limit).

I love being a loner, especially with no one to answer to, but some moments it's real biatch when it comes to BD's, Thanksgiving & Christmas, so I have to buy my own gift if I want to get any at all.
But at least I got me 1 single solitary "Happy BD" card, and of all people & places, it was from Marlboro(along with $3.00 off on any flavor of their cancer sticks).

WOO-Woo!!! Hurray for(gasp)my(choke)ailing lungs(cough,sputter). LOL

I look forward to pounding through the campaign while experiencing 10's of millions of dollars flash before more eyes.
No really. It's basically why I play these.
