UK Gamers rights group goes after activision over black ops


[link to this post]
 
http://www.destructoid.com/pressure-group-attacks-ac...

Basically for the PC and PS3 platforms complaining the game was released in an unfinished state whilst the 360 version received preferential treatment.

Whilst i'd say the PC version didnt come off too bad from my experience (despite some glaring bugs that would be obvious to an inbred squirrel), it was playable for the majority unlike the PS3 version which to this date is still unplayable properly. Its nice to see these folks are making an effort to make a stand against it, too bad legally i dont think they'll get anywhere.

Legally theres nothing you can do really over digital goods, the EU is slowly working something through but i wouldnt expect it soon, more so as i was watching bbc news flick over the newspapers there was an article in one of them that insurers won't insure digital downloads either.

only action that will matter is to vote with your wallet assuming they make another! I switch between COD4 and BF BC2 now, this is on the 360 mind. Have to say never been so underwhelmed by the COD series now.

Were you searching for games globally or local. When playing I always search locally and then that searches european servers which usually prevents lag (Not always)
You do get the rare American clan in that makes the game virtually unplayable as they always seem to have 1 second ahead than you!

is this on the console version? Never thought you got a choice in any of the online games bar BF series which I believe you connect to a server rather than a someones console??

I have not experienced any lag problems on the 360 or any other come to think of it.so many games coming out i feel that Black Ops will be in some dark black corner pretty quick and has not got that Play Me Now factor like previous MW games before thay got totally hacked.

I have heard reports now that MW2 is unplayable due to hackers........

There are options in the menu to search local servers only and you can pick European.

The lack of support for COD games is terrible. I will never buy another
