This game looks bad

So much for COD on the Vita, as it's just a 4v4 version of the original black ops (and looks like crap). Who is going to buy this thing? Is this another nail in Vita's coffin?

I don't know, I thought that looked alright for a handheld thing.

this is probably gonna sell fine

What's wrong with it? It's watered down in graphics, which is justifiable, and it looks like Call of Duty. If anything this is a great push for the Vita to get a larger user-base - which I'm all for.

I was thinking the same thing.

it looks okay for what it is, which if i remember correctly is just a bunch of spec-ops like missions designed to suit a handheld format. although i'll admit it's not for me, since COD on consoles will probably do just fine for me.

And we still don't know who's developing it.

Wow.

Wow.

It's being developed by Nihilistic Software, the studio that made Resistance: Burning Skies.

Yup, meaning the game will be garbage.

Another CoD shooter on a portable console for people with disposable incomes.

Not after that jawdropping Killzone Mercenary trailer. This looked like a spruced up PS2 title in comparison.

I don't think it really says anything about the future of the Vita. It's just Activision's ongoing campaign of putting COD on every platform possible without regard to the final game quality.

Well Socom on the PSP had 16 player online... why does this only have 8? That Uncharted game also looked alot better than this does.

They still make Vita games?

@BlackLagoon: I acquiesce to this comment, as it is true.

@MAN_FLANNEL: Haven't the Call of Duty games always sacrificed graphic fidelity for better frame-rates, even on consoles? I don't think we should expect the series to perform like Uncharted. Let's not forget that Uncharted on the Vita also had a lot of hiccups, which I doubt that this will have.

im gonna skip it, till the price goes lower. for now though i will stick to n.o.v.a and coded arms for my first person shooter fix on my vita.

Looks like Call of Duty, so the bad part goes without saying. (I kid!) In all seriousness though, 4v4 might make it more tactical and less run-and-gun / spray-and-pray. Multiplayer could be more fun then it is on consoles for this reason alone. That said, no I won't buy it. Maybe it will be given out free with PlayStation Plus one day, other then that I have no interest.

From what some people have been saying on Twitter about the game, it sounds like it contains roughly 1-2 hours of single player content. So... yeah... that's no good. Does anyone remember when this game was like a flagship game announcement at E3?

Not really. It was like a full 20 seconds of them saying "by the way, Call of Duty".  
   
  
 
Gamescom is where they made this game a big deal and closed the show with the trailer.

Jeff said something about it being pretty bad today on Twitter, I believe. So there's that.
