Forums - Sony Discussion - RUMOR: Sony to promote Call of Duty: Black Ops 3!!

Wow now news outlets rely on random neogaf posts for sources to rumours.
Yep just a rumour. I mean it could happen.

If this turns out to be true, it will be a serious blow to the Xbox brand. The FPS market has always been Xbox's stronghold and their Call of Duty marketing deals are one major reason why people associate the genre with their brand. This could spell real trouble for Xbox long term if PlayStation becomes Activision's main partner for this going forward.



If true then it's a serious sign that MS is losing it. I feel like this years E3 is a very important one for MS.

1. ps4 install base is not twice the size of XB1
2 COD tourneys have always been on xbox
3.Would this be a record for most 3rd party advertising deals in a 2 year span sony spending that loot.


PS I kind of would like to see how many ps4 fans start cheering pew pew pew games if sony does get the advertising though. That would make the 3 largest publishing deals all shooters for ps4.


Its close to twice the size of XB1 and may reach twice(or above) by holidays easily consider PS4 marketing deals like Batman, MGS V and Battlefront. Everyone not buyinig COD just for tourneys and especially in europe. Sony is maket leader and many 3rd pary games benefited from their marketing so far and COD will get same as they are in decline so its best way to improve for them as future.



GAMING is not about spending hours to pass/waste our time just for fun,

its a Feeling/Experience about a VIRTUAL WORLD we can never be in real, and realizing some of our dreams (also creating new ones).

So, Feel Emotions, Experience Adventure/Action, Challenge Game, Solve puzzles and Have fun.

PlayStation is about all-round "New experiences" using new IP's to provide great diversity for everyone.

Xbox is always about Online and Shooting.

Nintendo is always about Fun games and milking IP's.

Would really screw up Microsoft's holiday sales if true. That COD deal really helps them a great deal.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

A couple million off is not close, also my point stands people keep parading a 2:1 advantage and that is not even the case.  XB1 fans don't go around parading XB1 games that sold within 2 million of the ps4 version, as the XB1 version outsold it.



As long as it comes to Wii U, I don't care who promotes it lol

You think VGChartz is very acccuate? Also its has not been updatd for a month of data yet. Its over 2:1 accross rest of the world except US and UK. 2:1 does not transalate in real sales same ratio but it wil big better than XB1 and might get huge in future if PS4 keep sellig like this so marketing deals are not made for only one year and it will sapn 2-3 years. So looking at PS4 selling rate(especially rest of the world) and it makes sense to stick with that so future games will sell great on market leader system.
