COD Black Ops Refund: Petition From PS3 Users

By Jamie Pert - Nov 24, 2010

If you own the PlayStation 3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops you may feel a little hard-done-by, this is because not only do Xbox 360 gamers get DLC first, but there is also no online split-screen mode and experts also suggest that Xbox 360 version has superior graphics.

Some PS3 gamers are extremely annoyed with Treyarch, so much so that they have signed an online petition demanding a full refund, if you are one of these annoyed gamers you can sign the petition here.

To be honest with you the annoyed gamers do have a point, previous PS3 releases have shown the full potential of the hardware, therefore Black Ops’ below par graphics are inexcusable, also you would think that a multi-platform release should bring the same features to all consoles.

Below we have included an extract from the petition, have a read through it and feel free to share your opinions in the comments section.

Is it fair to charge Playstation 3 owners the same price for an inferior product, when the previous version (Modern Warfare 2) was equal on both systems but the updated version (BO) is not? Is it fair to charge Playstation 3 owners the same price for an inferior product, when the previous version (Modern Warfare 2 on PS3) looked visually better than BO looks now on PS3?

Will you sign the petition?

    this explains perfectly why gabe newell said what a pain in the ass it is to make games for the cell processor and therefore, the ps3.

  • How do i level up on my account on ps3 and xbox 360! And the software is not finished so don't worry , we might get a graphic update, but it doesnt really matter does it, its not like out gaemplay is affected, what we should really ask for is a connection update , at least for me i get disconnected from 50% of my matches an d I know its not my connection.

  • You guys have to be kiddin’ me. Guys, don’t sign this. There is already split-screen online on ps3. Just go on the other person’s account on the ps3 if you wanna use level up your account.

    This is ridiculous, no one is getting a refund, quit wasting your time people.. anyone that says that the graphics are worse on the ps3 than 360 spent way too much time side by side comparing the two and too little time playing the game… no wonder you hate it! The difference in visual appeal is negligible if anything… and there is online split screen so the functionality is the same across platforms! It's the ps3 that prohibits two separate user profiles from logging in at once, not the game. Which results in the ps3 being an inferior product… not BO.. if you want to complain make it out to Sony. Personally I'll be filing my complaint with your mother — your child's whining is a burden on the system.

    Cheers -2cents

      It was not hard at all to see the difference between them. I own BO on both consoles and when I put in the PS3 version, I instantly saw the difference. I'm playing on a 92" 1080p projector and my sole reason for buying the game again was for nazi zombies in 1080p, I don't want a refund, I just want them to make an update that gives us the higher res models and fixed gameplay issues, basically let us download what the game should have been.

    It is not fair, I will sign the petition. Not because I want a refund, I know about the issues and I bought it anyway. Honestly what choice do I have, just like "The Orange box" which is a great game poorly ported to the PS3. Next time I'll probably Battlefield bad company to be my online shooter since both versions of the game are the same. It's a shame that with the hundred of millions that this game generates, they don't take the time to build the game for the PS3 as well as for the Xbox. Instead we get a shitty port. I hope this petition will at least send a message to Treyarch for the next time.

    There is online split screen, it's just that you can't sign in with two separate PSN accounts, and it will appear as PSN ID (1) – Which if I recall correctly, is something to do with the way PSN works?

    And there is only a slight difference in graphics and performance between PS3 and 360 as far as I can tell.

    And no, MW2 didn't look any better on PS3 than Black Ops does.

    this coming from a PS3 fanboy
