Call of Duty: Black Ops PS3 users petition 'sub-par' game

Uneven Call of Duty: Black Ops release angers cheated PS3 users

An online petition demanding a full refund for Sony console owners disgruntled by the ‘inferior’ PS3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops has sparked a flurry of action amongst angered PlayStation gamers.

Requesting Call of Duty’s publishers Activision supply them with a full refund for their “sub-par” copies of the most successful game of the year, numbers of signatures on the virtual petition have topped the 2,000 mark in less than 24 hours.

“The Playstation 3 version BO was released at the same time and date as the Xbox 360 version. Technically, the Playstation 3 can equal and/or out perform the Xbox 360 on many levels. Yet, the Triple A title BO was released on the Playstation 3 with sub-par graphics, buggy software and less features.” read the petition.

It continued: “Is it fair to charge PlayStation 3 owners the same price for an inferior product, when both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 had the same amount of development time? 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? We are requesting a full refund for Call of Duty Black Ops!"

With Xbox’s Director of Entertainment and Marketing, Stephen McGill proudly proclaiming "Obviously everyone knows the best place to play Black Ops is on Xbox 360” and industry-wide acknowledgement of increased functionality and graphical quality of the Xbox Black Ops offering, the irks highlighted by the online petition appear to have a foundation in fact.

“It is appalling a developer or a publisher would release a game on two platforms charging the same price but not offer the same game in terms of quality or functionality” stated one petitioner, Craig Ton.

Publisher Activision has yet to officially respond to the petition.
