According to Computer and Video Games, independent gaming pressure group Gamers’ Voice plan to report Activision to the UK’s Office of Fair Trading for releasing – in their opinion at least – unfinished versions of the game on PC and PlayStation 3.
Gamers’ Voice have been inundated with complaints regarding bugs and errors and wrote an open letter to Activision UK asking how they plan to make amends. Gamers’ Voice have said they will wait a month for Activision to respond or they will be “forced to take matters further”. I’m not quite sure what this means though. However the month is up so Gamers’ Voice will be reporting Activision UK to the OFT.
“As a result of their inaction we will test the might of government agencies against Activision,” he said. “We can only hope this brings about some litigious action. These agencies do exist to protect our rights as consumers, let us see if they can fullfill their remit on this pressing issue.”
I have to admit that on a PC that runs Modern Warfare 2 as smooth as silk, Black Ops is extremely choppy even with resolution scaled back to 1024*768. My only other observation would be to ask if anyone has ever seen an official Black Ops trailer from Treyarch/Activision recorded on anything but the Xbox 360?
