I got started down the online gaming road toward the end of the MW3 cycle so I don't go back very far. I never did play COD4 but have read several comments in the past about how much folks seem to like it. I though I might take a temperature reading here and ask those who did play this version of COD what they think about the potential re-mastering of it for PS4. The speculation is that it will be part of a "Legacy" package in the upcoming "Infinite Warfare" title in November.
If IW continues the current trend set by AW and BO3 as futuristic warefare game play in "Infinite Warfare", will the re-mastering of an Old School COD (namely COD4) answer the prayers of those wanting a throw back to the days before b-joosting? If so, did they pick the right one to remaster? There is also some muttering of a remaster of MW2. Thoughts on that?
For years I played the campaign only for all of the titles until I had reliable internet and could finally play MW3 online on the Xbox 360. By that time, COD4 and MW2 had hackers in so many games that it was not fun at all to even attempt.
I'm REALLY hoping that COD4 has a multiplayer for the PS4/Xbox One. My fear is that it will be released as a refreshed campaign only, which would really suck. Activision would be wise to have a company port the old game to new gen. Hopefully they do NOT add supply drops to a fan favorite game like this.................but they could.
I'm actually more excited about playing the old games on the Xbox One than Infinity Warfare. I still have COD4 on the 360, so hopefully it will qualify as a Games with Gold backwards compatible title and I won't have to spend extra money (crossing my fingers). The Modern Warfare series was my favorite, so I would love MW2 & MW3 as well.
I don't understand why they'd include a remastered old CoD with the new upcoming game. I don't think there'd be any prizes for guessing which one would see the most action...
I think Nostalgia is great, but the Novelty would wear off.
I loved COD4... but played it a lot. The newer generation of players won't appreciate it, and the older generation will quickly realize they've been there, done that before and look for the new game or something else.
Plus, once connectivity issues rear their ugly head or the same old issues COD4 had arise once more, the complaints will come rolling in.
I think it's a smart move by IW... if true (I hate unofficial leaks). Since there is a sect of Ghosts haters and also a sect of anti- scifi CoD players... the Modern Warfare name itself will make players want to get their hands on it.
I think it will just be a campaign similar to how IW included "Classic CoD" with one of the MW2 editions.
As some one who doesn't have much issue playing the current CoD title no matter where the devs choose to take it.... I hope it is just a campaign and the population in the next title is high.
I also think if there is a MW remastered multi... it will be very different and that rose tint will turn to red rage. Players memories will be shattered with disgust and IW will get more hate for not only failing at making a good new game... but destroying the "best one" ever.
great game problem is you have to buy the new game to get it till thwey release it on the stores i love how they play it off like its a exclusive when its not
Well, this looks official enough for me. I'm honestly very excited about it except for the fact that there are only 10 multiplayer maps............DLC to be determined later??
Really hope that they allow a free download to the Xbox 1 if you still have the 360 disc; that would be awesome for backwards compatibility.
