[VG247] Activision says closing Black Ops PSN servers may be “viable” - Page 5

post #41 of 82
If you have two groups of consumers, ones who pay, and those who dont, its obvious that the ones who pay are going to get firdst dibs on pretty much everything, activision cant do everything for those who give nothing.

I had a feeling COD would take this route. Deceive customers and cash in, then rape every single one of them by requiring PSN+ to play online. They rightfully can cut access from free PSN accounts, and I don't blame them; the console kiddies are too gullible now and buy every COD release. Maximize your business out of it.

For every person who says he'll never give money to Activision there are 100 who are doing as we speak.

This approach won't solve anything.
By virtue of the way XBL is designed insures that it won't have as many network issues as PSN.

There are two reasons this might be a good thing.

1: You're a cheater, or
2: You're a troll


For the rest of us, admin's ability to kick/ban cheaters and sociopaths is one of the best reasons to use dedicated servers.

THIS.. haven't you read the news? This is one the main reasons they are considering it. People need to respect and not steal someone's network to use a server. I respect their decision as long we still can have a chance to play the game not only that.. BAN PLAYERS who cheat. I DESPISE DEPSISE cheaters, they deserve to sit in front of a train!

I think he was meaning modern warfare 2 but i agree with you. Get skill cheater, you don't need wallhacks or aimbot. That's what UAV is for and a really good mouse and oh oh oh.. inferior skills of a human being

I think it's great in SOME way they are doing this. I don't know why but i think it'll reduce problems.
