Have i lost my fave game forever ?????
 
Help !
To my abject horror I have noticed on the activision site that call of duty 3
is only listed for console gamers !
How can this be ?
How can they abandon us pc gamers ?

Someone tell me i'm wrong please.

Vinnie 09-03-2006 20:10

Call of Duty 3 won't be available for the PC :)

But hey checkout this ;) http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=196589

I'm gutted !
I hate using the play station controls but i will have to now won't I !

The link looks interesting though.

scatman839 09-03-2006 20:35

You could use Xbox 360 controls.

they thought i'd get a console to buy their game but they're soooo wrong. i'll have Crysis soon BBWWWAHAHAHAHAHA :D DIE!

Jeremy 09-04-2006 04:49

I am gutted. What a stupid thing to do, they go up to COD2 and then drop us. I would hit one of the codemasters staff members if I could.

Jeremy 09-04-2006 04:50

Actually wait, now I see it is for PC *confused*.

We here in PC Land are getting fewer and fewer scraps from the game developers table every year.

briinthesky 09-04-2006 12:48

Maybe if we start a thread and get cod gamers to express there distress
we could get them to change their minds ?

scatman839 09-04-2006 13:02

I doubt it would work.

I say give it time.

aircool 09-04-2006 13:36

well after seeing cod2 is it realy going to be anygood?

getsuga12 09-04-2006 14:06

first, mass effect was announced as an xbox 360 exclusive. Now this fiasco.

At least COD3 has been confirmed for the PC.

I thought Call of Duty 3 is not made by the same guys who made Call of Duty one and two. Call of Duty 3 is made by Treyarch. Games made by Treyarch are Ultimate Spiderman, The Spiderman the movies series, Minority Report, Call of Duty 2: Big Red One, which is an average Call of Duty conversion for the Consoles. Some Treyarch games are okay, but some are plain bad. So it is not a big deal that Treyarch is not making a Call of Duty for the PC.

See for other games by Treyarch:
http://www.treyarch.com/games.html

I was hoping that the original team of the Call of Duty series, Infinity Ward is making a Call of Duty for the PC or even better a new series of WWII First Person Shooter, which will beat the Treyarch CoD in every way, sense etc.

I'm not bothered either way. COD was very good in it day, the expansion was absolute rubbish, COD2 was more of the same linear, predictable, shoot-em-up stuff. I've had it with COD, it's become boring. Crysis will dump on COD3 from a great height, freedom of movement, I like it.

briinthesky 09-04-2006 17:33

Each to his own guys!
I have loved COD 1 and 2, that is the type of game i like and would love to see COD 3 (prefeably by Infinity Ward) hit the PC sooner rather than later.
I also love half life , prey, fear, moh, gtr, IL2, freespace.
So we all have our fave games. mine and a lot of other peoples is COD.

mcnabb311 09-04-2006 18:02

PS3 is supposed to support mouse and keyboard controls so maybe you might still be able to play it the same as a PC.

Been into EB Games lately? They used to have a whole wall of PC games, now they only have very few titles on a small rack in the back corner of their stores.
I hate EB anyway but still...

Hiro1000 09-04-2006 18:17

what I find hilariously ironic is that the developers/game makers use PCs to make console games.

vbetts 09-04-2006 19:10

COD2 was alright, and COD3 looks good too. Yes, the bad part about it is there is no PC support for it, but for the Wii there is, which is what I plan on getting COD3 on.>_> Fanboy speaking in there.

briinthesky 09-04-2006 20:53

I fear the trend pointed out at EB is also happening in most stores in the uk !
How much of that is down to internet sales i don't know but it is worrying
It would seem PC'S are being pushed towards home entertainment and games are not seen as part of that, so consoles will eventually rule, which as already pointed out if it wasn't for the PC they could not make their games !

StormVR6 09-05-2006 00:16

I've noticed the decline in PC games too. The games stores I usually visit have vastly minimized their PC selection. My local Tesco and Sainsburys, who used to sell a reasonably good range, now only have their own PC chart, which to be honest must be plucked out of thin air.

I don't really buy many games as most new releases are below my acceptable standards, so I use online companies for the very few games I do buy and save considerable money in the process.

Best Buy still has a well stocked PC game section. I think what's killing PC gaming today is how demanding systems need to be to play them. Take Oblivion for example. People just don't want to sink $1000 into a PC when they could get something like a Nintendo Wii for $250. This is the main reason why I've been predicting a failure of the PS3, because it defeates the whole purpose of why people get consoles in the first place.

lets just hope pc gaming will live forever.
since microsoft is saying that windows vista is a gaming operating system it could possibly be a saviour to pc gaming. microsoft is also incouraging people to buy newer graphics cards to be able to use windows vista which is good. and also with directx 10, i think pc gaming will only get bigger and better.

StormVR6 09-05-2006 03:28

I really do hope so. And less expensive hardware/software in the UK would be nice........like that will ever happen.
