Competitive Call of Duty moves to Playstation 4 starting with Black Ops 3

cod-ps4-2

Call of Duty eSports, in official capacities, has been played exclusively on Microsoft consoles starting with the Xbox 360 last generation. This is mainly due to Activision’s DLC and marketing deal with Microsoft which expired this year. Sony revealed at their E3 conference in June that with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Activision will be partnering up with Sony for future Call of Duty content and marketing.

Till now many CODCompetitive fans were wondering on which console Black Ops 3 eSports tournaments will be played on as the partnership announcement didn’t talk about anything related to the topic. At today’s Black Ops 3 eSports event at Gamescom, Black Ops 3’s Game Design Director revealed that future events will indeed be played on the Playstation 4.

Below is the exact quote:

PlayStation is the new home of Call of Duty eSports.

Time for all Competitive Call of Duty players to get used to the new controllers, eh?

What do you think of the announcement? Are you happy with COD eSports moving to Playstation? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

  • Mello

    How long will it be on ps4

  • Jorge

    I just want to know for how long playstation its gonna be the first one to get the dlc and downloads?

  • LinkandTingle

    And this is why Im glad I dont have a PS4 or Xone….

  • Schlxgel

    I wish competitive cod would have stuck with Xbox. Ps4 specs might be slightly better, but honestly I don’t care. I hate the PlayStation menu format and playing online is usually a dull experience since the majority of players fail to match up against Xbox players. Not to mention that there seems to be way more hackers on Playstation products
    and no one uses mics making working with your team virtually impossible.

  • Juan

    I don’t care about CoD anymore, Battlefield 4: Star Wars Edition is coming!!! 😀

  • Venom Snake

    Xbots acting like these CoD pros don’t like the DS4, its probably the best of all time.

  • Will this game come out for the Wii U or not?

  • Kevin Ware

    Who the fuck is Treyarch to say eSports has to be played on PS4? That’s up for MLG and UMG to decide.

  • 0 to 100

    i wonder how many outages the esport events will have now that it’s on ps4?

    • xboxmaster

      hmm, let’s see, destiny a online only game, how many outrages had on ps4? what none? this can not be!!!
      lmao xfags
      YOU HAVE THE FUCKING AUDACITY TO TALK ABOUT PS4 AND OUTRAGES WHEN THE most broken game in next gen history is an xb1 exclusive??? have you forgot HALO MCC??? HALO THE BROKEN EDITION? THE NO MULTIPLAYER EDITION? THE WE TOOK THEIR MONEY EDITION?
      HOW MANY TOURNAMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELED BECAUSE OF THAT DOGSHIT XBOX LIVE???
      LMAO CAN’T WAIT FOR HALO 5 (800X800p the sub-720p edition, low res textures and last gen graphics, no split screen with 30~40fps lmffffao!!!!) TO CRASH AND BURN AT ESPORTS ON XB1

      • GotNews4Ya

        R-E-L-A-X Buddy.. It isn’t that big of a deal man.. Who cares what other people think.. Too many people get all worked up over other people’s opinions.. way too often.. You wanna know what the worst game release this gen is..? WANDER.. that MMO is a joke.. and the developer acts like everything is okay.. PFFF Puh-LEASE

        • xboxmaster

          who cares about wander, nobody plays that shit

      • Juan

        He said outages, as in power outages, because our beloved console uses a bunch of electricity

      • Fayz7

        you sound mad? have you ever tried going outside or getting laid? sony will offer you another 13 cents if you try to.

  • Dennis Crosby

    We will see how this works out ultimately its up to the cod community if they want to make that switch and Sony is going to have to keep psn up and running if the want to make this happen

    • Revolver Ocelot

      Well you won’t have to worry your little head because it’ll be running on LAN, unlike the Disaster Chief Collection which is ruined when XBL or the connection shits itself, which is often.

      • Dennis Crosby

        The pro practice and scrimmage every day for 10-15 hours its their jobs. That all will happen on PSN. They have to get use to the controller and PSN let be honesty is not reliable at the moment. Sony still haven’t made right with the promise of using the subscription money to make the network better. So now these guys have to schedule are planned and random maintenance. Also what does the master chief collection have to do with this uphill battle Sony is about to participate in

        • Revolver Ocelot

          Well considering the only difference is PSN hasn’t had as many problems this year as XBL and the placement of the left analogue stick on the controller making clawing on the D-pad easier, I don’t expect any substantial difficulties.

          It has to do with the fact your precious service isn’t as red hot as you want it to be, and MS’ foolish disregard for LAN is why it’s in this mess in the first place. Sure hope DCC is working by the time the Halo World Championships starts.

  • trfe

    And Xbox one just came out with the elite controller.

    Sucks for call of duty players to now have to use that dumbed down ps4 controller.

    • itsmeeee

      Nah they are all celebrating, lol sucks to be on xbox

      • trfe

        haha. I doubt it. Now they have to go out and buy a ps4 doorstop that basically only has 3rd party games.

        Oh and the ps4 exclusives like street fighter and no man’s sky will probably be on Xbox once PC to Xbox one streaming is enabled.

        So even less exclusives for ps4. Womp Womp!

        • xboxmaster

          so by your login, if you have a pc, and an xbox, and you can stream pc games to the xbox, the game is on xbox now? have you forgot about the pc that you HAVE to HAVE?
          and make no mistake the games that will be streamable between xbox and px will be very limited
          as for exclusives:
          ps4:
          The Order 1886
          Bloodborne
          MLB 15 The Show
          God Of War III Remastered
          Until Dawn
          Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection

          vs
          xb1:
          Forza 6
          Halo 5
          so it’s 6 to 1 sorry xtwat
          as for the controller, i’m sure that the cod fans celebrate for not having to deal with the xbox deadzones controller, and 720p resolution lmao
          ps4 controller is the best, and cod looks way better on ps4 with a better fps
          so suck it xwands lmaoo

          • 0 to 100

            please can you at least name a decent ps4 game apart from anything by naughty dog? once you complete the short campaign the console is pretty much a dust collector.

          • xboxmaster

            please can you at least name a decent xb1 game AT ALL???? once you complete the short campaign the console is pretty
            much a dust collector.

            and who says what is decent? by metacritic? by sales? your opinion? my opinion? or your butthole? if you don’t think that ps4 has decent games, IT’S ONLY YOUR FUCKING OPINION and, AND, and, NO-FUCKING-BODY-CARES, in my opinion, and judging by the sales, many others opinions, xb1 doesn’t have any decent game, ps4 doesn’t have decent games neither, PS4 HAS AMAZING GAMES, so suck it XTWAT lmfao!!!

          • Fayz7

            Gears of war & halo beats anything on dusty station 4, naughty dog games last for about 5 hours and back to the dusty corner it goes. with gears & halo you can enjoy FUN multiplayer, don’t you miss having FUN? or is psn ‘down’ for that?

          • RobHicks

            Wow………I hope you don’t talk to your parents like that…….your posts are just a torrent of abuse….all I see is a spotty spoilt little boy. grow up, grow a pair and accept that the games are important..not what badge is on your box.

          • Static Shock

            Bloodborne

            And with all the Xbox one exclusives it’s going to become even more obvious The ps4 is seriously lacking AAA exclusives.

            6 to 2*
            Competitive e-sports should remain on Xbox, thats where all the competitive players are and the xbox controller is much more suited for FPS. If I was a competitive COD player, I would be seriously frustrated by this reveal. But thankfully, I’m not a competitive gamer, but I am a die-hard Halo and Competitive Halo fan. So I’m all good.

          • xboxmaster

            well, Call Of Duty is now with PS4, so all you can do is DEAL WITH IT, and another competitive game that is NOT ON XBOX ONE, Street Fighter V, poor xbots… no games, 720p…

          • trfe

            Dude. Competive call of duty means nothing. How many competitive call of duty players are there? 500-1000 tops? Even 5000 is a drop in the bucket.

            Microsoft didn’t want that contract. If they did they would have paid up. Microsoft can buy and sell Sony 10 times over. If Microsoft wanted something they’d get it. They’re focusing on first party not paying for 3rd.

          • Curtis Conyer

            Actually all the competitive players are on pc I don’t know what fantasy world you live in. Mouse and K/B wreck controller its precision is legendary. That’s why you console players cry foul when we bring the xim4 to the party.

          • trfe

            Typical Sony fanboy. Knows nothing about Xbox but still vomits lies about the system.

            Dummy. Sony doesn’t care about you. Find something better to do with your time. And everyone knows Sony is getting spanked by Xbox one in the exclusive games department.

            Xbox one exclusives 2015:
            Masterchief collection
            Forza 6

            Halo: Master Chief Collection just feels like it came out this year.. due to it not working until this year.. lol.. But it came out in November of 2014..

            Fable Legends is garbage.. I really hope it gets better.. but the outlook isn’t very good.. Project Spark came out in 2014.., and Smite is a MOBA.. that has been out, its actually pretty damn fun.. lol

            The Order 1886 – already out bro!
            Bloodborne – already out bro!
            MLB 15 The Show- already out bro!

          • xboxmaster

            they are already out THIS YEAR, OH YES I FORGOT, XBOX HAD NOTHING THIS WHOLE YEAR TILL HOLIDAY, LMAO

          • trfe

            Nope. You can’t say already being out is bad for Xbox one titles but good for ps4 titles.

            Your arguments are BS. You’re delusional.

            I know you’re just a troll who thinks it’s fun to try and bait people to respond. Everyone knows that. So we’re done here. And now you have to go back to your pathetic life. Have fun you chunky loser.

          • xboxmaster

            are you retard?? we are talking about the games this year, you’re bringing games from

            2014 lmao we’re in 2015 nigga

            Ahh. You’reright. I forgot MCC came out so long ago. And project spark just released something, that must have thrown me off.

            See what it’s like to have a civil conversation instead of acting worse than a child having a temper tantrum? You should try it sometime.

          • Curtis Conyer

            Also what does a title already being out have to do with it being exclusive none of that matters? It’s either exclusive or it isn’t.

          • trfe

            You’re 3 months late on this convo.

            No one cares what your opinion is at this point. I’m sure there is an article 3 weeks old that you can try and insert yourself into.

          • But what

            Sheesh I never seen such a console Pessant

          • But what

            Peasant*

          • Curtis Conyer

            Only four of those games are even worth playing the rest are pure trash. You console peons crack me up. PC slays both but if I had to pick a console ps4 is just simply a better choice. Xbox has literally have the same main titles since like 2004 Halo, GOW and Forza. Tomb raider isn’t even an exclusive is a timed exclusive so whys that on the list anyway? Oh and did I mention the rest of your games aren’t exclusive if they’re on pc which they are.

          • trfe

            If the PC is soooo much better why do you even get involved? Maybe you’re just a lonely little boy begging for the attention he never got from his parents?

          • GotNews4Ya

            Uhm.. State of Decay: 1 Year Survival Edition, Insomniac Games’ Sunset Overdrive.. Gears of War Remastered.. and Rare Replay are solid games that come out for the Xbox One this year or already have.. so.. 6:6..

            Unfortunately, All this bickering is for naught, seeing how AAA 3rd Party is leading the way this year.. So many good AAA Titles hitting this year.. Rainbow Six: Siege, Metal Gears Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Just Cause 3, Mad Max, Fallout 4.. and so many more.. It is definitely a sweet year for sure.. PS4 got away with having a lax lineup this year.. for the simple fact that the AAA 3rd Party’s have been hitting like MAC Trucks.

        • Revolver Ocelot

          And you’ll still be giving money to SCE for buying those games. Womp womp!

          • trfe

            Buying what games?

          • Revolver Ocelot

            If they’re helping to co-fund them they’re getting a cut.

            Go put together another crap list, Xbot. 🙂

          • trfe

            NOPE! Another Sony fanboy moron lie.

            Sony pays for exclusivity. That’s it. Sony doesn’t see a dime from sales.

            It’s like any other exclusive genius! Do you really think Capcom needs Sony money to help them make a game? You’re not smart.

        • Juan

          No Man’s Sky is only coming out for PS4 and PC, it will probably stay exclusive to those two, but hell, anything can happen.

          • trfe

            Sure. But in the next 6 months any PC game (even exclusive PC games) will be able to be streamed from the PC to the Xbox one.

            Making any ps4/PC game playable by Xbox one owners. No man’s sky, street fighter 5, and even last of us/uncharted if they decide to put that on PC also.

          • Juan

            Oh, alright that whole thing slipped my mind.

    • GotNews4Ya

      Honestly.. The Dualshock 4 was widely considered the best console controller this generation.. So.. Why would they be upset? I am so confused man.. Sounds like you are just being a fanboy and hating to hate..

      • trfe

        Except that there are hundreds or thousands of examples online of the controller falling apart.
