As above really. Curious to know who honestly thinks they will go above and beyond their total playing time on MW2 with black ops.

Given the recent problems and apparent differences between eggbox and ps3, is it a good enough game to keep us ps3 players enthralled for days, even months?

I know a few on here, BoB's I'm looking at you, have put in the best part of 2 months or more playing time on MW2, can you see yourself putting the same hours in on black ops?

I've gone with Don't Know/Maybe.

If the problems are fixed in the next patch then i think i might.

Ive just hit 4 days and 5th prestige and i'm going all the way to 15. I did 30 odd days on mw2 so i dont know whether i'll match/beat that but as long as the rest of the BoBs are still playing blops, then so will i:)

The game is definitely worthy of my time more than mw2 was imo.

Thank you, i was begining to think i was on my own on this:thumbsup:
thing is though Sharpy, and please don't think i'm having a pop or anything, you want to get to prestige 15 so I guess that's why it's addictive for you as that is your ultimate aim.

I want the game to hook me in but I have no desire or intention to grind through 15 levels for a tiny emblem, some extra slots and playlist. At least with MW2 you could stay on a prestige and still aim for the titles and emblems.

There is no reward system in black ops, i think that's where they have fallen down. I can overlook the lag/connection issues as I get them every now and again, but gameplay wise there isn't enough in there to keep you sucked in if you're not bothered about getting to prestige 15.

it won't take long for it to be sub £30, i don't think it'll hold it's value like MW2 did.

Could this be down to GT5 though Mark? Alot of BoBs are just wasting hours on the tarmac when they should be shooting people, driving games are for girls:devil::D
Driving games are for the more mature gamer. If you want to run around with water pistols and cap guns like a 6 year old be my guest Sharpy :);)

MW2 was the same though, once i hit 10 prestige it sort of lost its appeal and got boring, the whole point of prestiging is that it keeps the game fresh.

If i was sticking at level 50 zero prestige i probably wouldnt be playing it as much as i do.

Prestiging in this is no where near as much a grind as mw2 was. You get get decent weapons/attachments early on and you can unlock all your favourite perks almost straight away.

i know what you mean but you have to admit that prestiging aside there isn't anything in the game to reward you once you hit your desired level. Even though emblems/titles are small, there is nothing more satisfying than getting one and putting it up for everyone to see :D

Even though mark is a fellow scudder, I do feel that he is a bit of a girly man for driving cars rather than shooting folk. :thumbsdow
drive-by shootings would mean the best of both :rotfl:

I agree with the reduced motivation to prestige as there is no real beenfit from it, except keeping the game fresh and challenging you all over again and the gold camo (i think at prestige 15).

The fact they dont have emblems and titles for particular challenges is a fail in my opinion. Even after a month of playtime on MW2 i still didnt have half the emblems.

I will keep playing blops and prestiging until the next cod comes out. Is it genuinely pencilled in for next november or is there going to be a longer gap after the legal wrangling over the MW name?

i'm not fussed about leaderboards. I play my own game and don't really care about how others are doing. the only time i checked the leaderboards on MW2 was to see my k/d ratio etc.

I would like a friends leaderboard like mw2, which at a quick glance you could compare all your friends time played, kd, win loss etc. It too long winded to go into each friends stats individually:rolleyes:

well, the next game is almost certainly going to be future warfare. Activision have aqquired a few domain names. It also means that they can crack on with the next game as when they go to court in March and if respawn win then they won't be able to use the modern warfare name any more. Even if they won, activision couldn't start and finish a game in 6 months so you can bet your bottom dollar that Sledgehammer are already working on Future Warfare.

Question is, which engine will it run. I hope to god it isn't the same engine as black ops, and I don't know if they can use the IW MW2 engine so maybe they could use IDTech 4
