The Majority of Black Ops Gamers Don’t Suffer Bugs…WTF?!
Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia, has recently told Kotaku that Black Ops “is an awesome experience on all three platforms.” He even goes on to say that we, the fans, are wrong in the aspect of Black Ops being broken. Despite the full on petition from Gamers’ Voice, millions of complaints, and dozens of YouTube videos. Below are his statements in full.
“Here is what I will say: We know this for a fact, that the vast, vast majorities don’t have these sorts of experiences and they’re out there playing this game,” he said. “I really do encourage you to go online and play it. To the extent that there are issues we are unaware of, we are committed to trying to work to make sure the experience is good, that’s the most important thing. We are making the game for everyone. The game is robust, huge, we want to make sure if there are any issues they are addressed.
“That’s not to say there aren’t edge cases. When we do hear of something, we’re not like not doing anything. We worked on the game for two years; we want nothing more than for people to like it, especially guys who invested in rigs to make sure they had a powerful enough system. Obviously we care about the PC community. We think it’s an awesome experience. I wish it wasn’t just the 360 version you felt that way about because we feel like it’s a great experience on all of the platforms.”
“Edge cases” don’t count up to numbers in the 100,000’s. This PR stunt seems nothing more than trying to make Black Ops better than it actually is, so the Call of Duty series can “bounce back”. All we ask is that when you make a broken game (as proved by MANY people) admit it has certain problems at least, not go around and say the complete opposite.
