Call of Duty Black Ops: Are leaks a good thing or not?

With just a week to go before the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops, you are probably sitting down and thinking what else is there to be seen from the game that hasn’t already been leaked?

Sometimes, just sometimes, leaks are a pretty good thing and can often provide that extra bit of excitement or give you that deciding factor which will make you purchase a product or not.

However, sometimes too many leaks can be a bad thing, and that is probably what has happened with Black Ops. A few days ago, zombie mode was completely blown apart with leaked videos of Kino Der Toten, and then it was followed by a huge spoiler involving the ending of the single player campaign and the next zombie level.

We told you that there was space for three zombie maps on one disc, and the last piece of the puzzle was finally leaked just a few hours ago. Actually, we did tell you about about the Dead Ops Co-Op mode a month ago, and we were not too far of the mark as to what Dead Ops actually contains.

Considering that someone has already put up a live stream of the game online and countless multiplayer videos have already leaked, do you feel slightly angry that everything has been revealed or not?

Activision seems to be doing their hardest to remove all leaked content, but it’s a lost cause since new videos are appearing on YouTube by the second. I’ll be very surprised to see if any other Black Ops content has managed to stay hidden, as following on from the Dead Ops leak, that seems to be everything.

Are you happy with all the leaks or has it left you with a bad taste in your mouth?

    When stuff is leaked it adds to the hype. Which is a good thing unless when the game comes ouy it is really rubbish. Also i reckon Activision puts most of the leaks out there themselves just to create even more hype. For example we are talking about it now.

    It's extremely easy to avoid the leaks if you don't want any spoilers, so the only people that are exposed to leaked material are those of us who are itching to find out more about this game that most of us have pre-ordered anyway.

    If you disagree with me, ask yourself how you found your way to this thread and if you are more than likely going to buy Black Ops within the first month of release.

    Who cares?

    The game is going to be all about multiplayer anyway.
    MW2 had barely any new content, so there was nothing to leak. And yet it is popular as hell.

    If you're going to go on the web and search for Black Ops stuff then you'll find it. Choose not to if you want. Easy:)
