or have 16 GB RAM, which makes GTX 980 Ti work flawlessly
I thought I read it stutters on the GTX 980ti but that disappears with the Titan X?

Oh I missed that bottom comment about 16gb of ram and the GTX 980ti working fine... Ok so we now have 6 Cards that can run it efficiently on Ultra.

I foresee this affecting the sales of this game big time.... I mean its already a money grab series, most people who enjoyed the original ones, are not buying the new ones because of how stupid the gameplay now is... Also too, I am pretty sure that most people who want this game will be younger kids who want to play another Call Of Duty run n gun spray n pray game
All these perks/attachments/killing streaks are just lame, you don't need any actual skill to get first place, its basically who can out cheese the other player, this is the main reason I stopped playing. The original games actually took teamwork/skill
If only, they would just make a simplistic barebones shooter like the originals with a custom server browser.... I would buy it in a heartbeat.
Eh yea, I actually like the Black Ops/WaW games just for the zombies personally as the multiplayer got to boring and pretty easy if you know the right ways to play it (Meaning right guns, positions, etc).

Yeah I agree. I didn't stop playing after Cod4 MW... I also played WaW and the 1st and 2nd black ops a little bit, I also have Modern Warfare 2.... Modern Warfare 2 was when I stopped playing. I didn't actually play the standard multiplayer for MW2, for this game you could actually create custom matches still, even though there was no server browser.

So it was still possible to have restricted 5v5 S&D and Capture the flag matches in MW2. I played in a couple online paid tournaments and actually took 2nd place in a MW2 tournament... After this game, there was no way to create a custom match to only use specific weapons/perks/attachments. This is basically when the COD competitive community died for good. Back in Vcod / Cod2 / Cod4 there was such a massive competitive community with many many paid LANS around the world. Hell, COD2 was in the WSVG in 2007, if anybody wants to see the best players go at it, youtube search WSVG Cod2 - Watch teams like TEK-9 and Team Pandemic.... the level of their gameplay is just :eek:

CoD doesn't need any press, it will sell a lot of copies regardless.

During Beta I had no issues with performance, ran maxed out. However I do have 16gb of RAM.

Does the game during intro show some logos like sponsored by Micron, Nanya or Samsung?

It would explain a lot :D.
Also by NVidia TITAN X 12GB VRAM

OMG this reminds me in 2007 Crysis when I had intel core 2 quad q6700 XFX GTS 8800 640MB in SLi and 8GB i ran the game at full setting @1680x1050 and I got like 1 or 2 fps

looks like this will happen again thanks not buying it because I spend then to run Crysis $1500 on 3 8800GTX in 3-way sli and that's when nVidia first introduced 3 -way sli support.

I think the last Activision game I purchased was Pitfall for the Atari 2600. I'm done with pre-ordering games from all studios since they pretty much all seem to think it's acceptable to release broken crap and attempt to fix it afterwards. I don't buy any new games until at least a few weeks after launch to judge whether or not it's worth my time so soon after release. If it's in crappy condition a few weeks after release, I wait until it's worth my time. There are some games that will never be in good enough condition to bother with. (I'm looking at you, Batman). I'm really looking forward to Fallout 4 but even with Bethesda (which IMO is a fairly solid game studio) behind it, I'm still waiting the aforementioned few weeks. I won't allow myself to buy it until at least the middle of December.

this is call of doody blac kops 4-1, released in november 2015


this is unreal tournament 3, released in november 2007

one was released 8 years ago and works perfectly fine on 2gb of ram and 0.5gb vram
the other is a pile of coder vomit that requires 8gb on a professional graphics card paired along with 12gb of ram to minimally function, at least until the next crash

if your kid asks for this for christmas you are failing at parenting

Also as said on previous posts, it's a miracle if they are not going to fix this issue with patch.

It's not just the COD base games that Activision makes a killing with. They had something like 40 DLCs for COD Advanced Warfare. lol 40 damn DLCs!

Coding specifically for a niche genre. For the masses there are First Person Shooters.....for the elite studios there are First Person Shoot Own Foot,

Crysis came out in 2007 and it was unique in many ways. It's 2015, BLOPS3 is not breaking any grounds, aside from sales.
