Call of Duty Black Ops: gamers group slams Activision
"Unfinished" best-seller riles gamers consumers' group.
Call of Duty: Black Ops has been reported to “the relevant government agencies” by pro-gamers consumer group Gamers’ Voice. Their complaint? The “unfinished” nature of the PC and PS3 versions of the best-selling game, both of which have already come in for fierce criticism.
"The view of Gamers' Voice is that it doesn't matter how big a game is, it should not be released 'unfinished' or with bugs that make the game unplayable, which are words we have seen in a lot of emails to us recently,” it said in a statement.
It also accused Activision, the people behind the title, of, “…allowing entire sections of the PS3 and PC gaming community appearing to be used as game testers for an extended period after a game's release, yet being asked to pay for the privilege.”
Black Ops has already made over £1 billion worldwide, making it the biggest entertainment release ever. However, the PS3 and PC editions have been plagued with issues, with claims that the Xbox 360 has been favoured by developers.
