It was only a matter of time before all that bullspit sprayed off the fan and hit the walls and someone would get pissed over the whole thing. Well, that someone happened to be an independent pressure group who isn’t pleased at all with the pissed off PS3 and PC consumers who paid retail prices for Call of Duty: Black Ops but ended up with an unplayable mess. Gamer’s Voice is taking the fight to Activision over the ongoing Black Ops bugs, with a case that could very well spell bad news for the future of Call of Duty.
As stated in the public press release…
Gamers’ Voice accepts that bugs do slip through the net as it’s impossible for developers to find every single bug. We do not accept however allowing entire sections of the PS3 and PC gaming community appearing to be used as game testers for an extended period after a game’s release, yet being asked to pay for the privilege. This is not a tenable way to treat consumers of video games.Agreed. I don’t mind a few bugs and whatnot in a retail release so long as I can actually finish and play all aspects of the game. Keep in mind that this isn’t the age of $9.99 or $19.99 bargain-bin bait where those sort of glitches are expected…Call of Duty: Black Ops retails for $59.99 and up. Several months after the game’s release patches and hot-fixes were still being released to fix some of the day-one launch issues.
This will probably get settled in a discreet manner but we’ll keep readers posted in regards to the outcome of the matter. As for future Call of Duty games…Modern Warfare 3 is already in development by three game studios, so maybe it’ll turn out a little less glitchy than the last two CoD outings.
