After the quickscoping saga a few days ago now, we have yet more twists and turns to bring you now involving Call of Duty Black Ops. It has just been confirmed that the PS3 version of the game will miss out on a huge feature unlike the Xbox 360 version.
Remember how Treyarch confirmed online split-screen a few weeks back? Well, they have now just said that gamers will have the ability to sign in with two separate online accounts, but ONLY on the Xbox 360 version. It means that two people with an Xbox Live Gold account can sign in on one 360 console and rank up individually.
This exciting feature isn’t coming to the PS3 though, and there doesn’t appear to be a solid reason why. To make matters worse, Treyarch’s Josh Olin originally stated on the official US PS Blog that this feature would be included, only to retract his statement later, due to a mistake on his part – how could he get something so important wrong?
We don’t want to point the finger here, but don’t forget that Activision and Microsoft have an exclusive deal in place in which Xbox 360 users will get all Black Ops DLC first before the PS3 gets it a month later. Is this down to the developers or Sony?
Either way, PS3 owners are missing out big time. Just to let you know, the feature is definitely possible on the PS3 hardware since it was done with Resistance and Little Big Planet, so we’re looking at you Treyarch.
Are you upset about this or not? We’ll bring you an update on this as soon as we get it.
