Report – Call of Duty coming to Vita “in autumn”

Saturday, 18 February 2012 14:13 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Guy Longworth, Sony’s SVP of brand marketing for PlayStation, has said Call of Duty on Vita will be a “game changer for the platform” and that it is expected to land on the system “in the autumn.”

Longworth dropped this slight bit of information during an interview with GameTrailers, but didn’t elaborate on whether the title will be a ported version of an already released title, or a one designed specifically for the handheld.

Back in October, a job listing posted by Treyarch mentioned the firm was looking for help “bringing our hugely successful game to a new console,” but the listing didn’t indicate whether the assumed CoD title would be developed for Vita or Nintendo’s upcoming console, Wii U.

Despite the firm’s assertion it would support both platforms, Activision has yet to formally announce its Call of Duty plans for either system.

We’ll send a mail.

Thanks, Gamasutra.

    #2, Dont worry, al least, 10 million people aren´t. ;)

    About the game, no idea what to hope. A port of MW 3, an exclusive title, a 2012 COD port (Black Ops 2 for example)…

    No matter how, the big question about the title will be if it´s PS3 Crossed Game or not, as Online servers could unite PS3 and Vita gamers.

    Smart of Sony to get this going. Despite what you think of Call of Duty people play it. Even those who aren’t much of a gamer. I can definitely see this being popular.

    While COD is a huge, without proper marketing the game won’t do much for Vita. It could end up like the rest of handheld COD games that haven’t done much in the past.

    Of course, this is probably just a port of Black Ops 2 or whatever COD game we get this year which means it will be overshadowed by 360, PC and PS3 versions.

    COD is huge only on consoles.

    This is not that is something new.

    DS had Call Of Duty each year, but this was not the most selling game for the DS and it was not a system seller.

    So it depends only on the marketing campaign (if Sony and ACTI wants it to succeed)
    Also, i’m not so super happy about COD for the VITA. Basically it’s going to be a port of the old engine (but who the fuck cares when piece of shit sells even on consoles while on the Vita it will look good) with the same gameplay mechanic.

    But i’m excited about DUST 514 and BIOSHOCK for the Vita.

    Sweet, i think this could be huge for vita.

    Despite how much i hate Cod because of what it is. I think Vita and Cod just go hand in hand.

    I will be picking up the Vita version

    Erthazus, it´s no longer possible to compare old game portable games/experiences, seeing haw Vita performs.

    I don´t know exactly how old DS COD ports were, but I´m sure it´s impossible to compare a shit about them with the Big consoles games. I even know how it was the PSP port, and it was a WWII game, well made for PSP, as the MOH Heroes saga was. But they weren´t mean to be AAA games, Ultra Hit titles or something like that.

    The difference with Vita and the big question as I said, will be if the game is an exclusive created specifically for Vita or at least, is able to Cross Game with PS3 Online Servers. A game that can trully performs the COD quality gaming in your hands, even having a less stunning visual performance, but enough to be like Modern Warfare 1 was on Wii. I´m sure it will be a game charguer on Vita, but it´s true that it will need more than COD name to do that, that´s sure.

    Vita can´t be considered any longer as a Game Boy Next-Gen, but a GameCube with screen. Devs must start seeing that this portable console it´s as good as a videoconsole and their games must have same quality (not saying it need massive AAA games, but no more Horsez or Mini shits).

    People keep acting like it would be PS Vita only, when it will likely appear on 3DS, DS and iOS as well. It’s not like the graphics gap between Vita and 3DS is as big as people thought it was anyway so it would likely be awesome on both platforms.

    Also, the Vita has only two shoulder buttons, whereas the 3DS has four when equipped with the Circle Pad Pro.

    Sony has no real say in developing COD for Vita, and honestly why make a great selling IP like COD for a user base of maybe 5 million people worldwide (only 1 or 2 million would likely be in America) when the 3DS would have 20-30 million users by the time November rolls around.

    @ poketrainer, keep dreaming. Uncharted IS NOT using full vita power. No launch title ever has, despite what developers say. And graphics gap between 2 systems? Are you in nintendog land? Comparing both games based on ” in depth review ” by on nintendo propaganda site. You really are a retard.
    Go get a “life” . You wont be disappointed if you compare it with a piece of …..ahem.

    #15 What can I expect from a Poke Trainer? Everything except a good comment about why Vita have good things and why 3DS could have bad things.

    Alright, Ash Ketchum: Actually you don´t remember that the front and back panels are touchable. You don´t see to realise actually Vita remap the PS3 controlls with them.

    Second, you just can´t compare a machine that have same graphics as Wii with a console that have graphics a bit better than PSP.

    Not to mention actually Online Platform Vita is really stronger than 3DS.

    And finally, my little friend, actually, in NGP Playstation Meeting, Activision said that it would be working in order to take all advantage of Vita capacities.

    So, I guess, eh… You are a bit wrong. And don´t be wrong, I´m actually more interested in 3DS AAA Games.

    “Vita can´t be considered any longer as a Game Boy Next-Gen, but a GameCube with screen. Devs must start seeing that this portable console it´s as good as a videoconsole and their games must have same quality (not saying it need massive AAA games, but no more Horsez or Mini shits).”

    I know what your saying, but, Devs have very little to do with it. The pubs are the ones with the pull and power. They fund the devs, give them a budget and a time line. There is NEVER going to be a AAA handheld platform. Never.

    The reason is that the market just isn’t there to suport it.

    Pubs are going to invest in games for markets that can make the most cash. Thats is why we see quick, often sloppy, ports of big brand name games. Pubs went the games done fast with minimal investment.

    What is avalible market wise varies on region. In my neck of the woods, handheld gaming comes in two forms. Form one is dedicated handheld system for kids. And form two Mobile OS based phones. The phone apps market is huge compared to dedicated handhelds, here. Thats where pubs are going to invest. The entry investment is much smaller, and the ratio for profits are much larger. Tapping into that market is hard, but that is another post.

    And my point is that your going to have to forget about devs or pubs treating like Vita(or any other handheld) on the same level as a console. Just not going to happen. Always going to face limitations.

    Sure Vita is a hot new ticket right now. And next to 7 year old hardware, it looks pretty nice. But what happens when Nintendo, MS, and Sony push out new console platforms? Handhelds once again become forgoten trinkets for most. PSP platforms have always two problems here in NA, and both of them are that they are Nintendo. The price has always been a bit high, and they are a bit delicate(not saying you should drop kick gameboys)(but I have seen them bounce off of cement floors and still work). Both of those are slaes hinderers because at the heart of it, in NA, handheld gaming come in two flavors: dedicated systems for kids, and Mobile Phones for grown ups.

    @diego and @dragon246

    Hot damn, fellas! Calm down!

    Certainly the gap between 3DS and Vita is much smaller than people thought it would be, its more like PS2 and Xbox, not DS and PSP.

    I never said Uncharted didn’t look better, it does. It just doesn’t matter that much to me (that visual difference)

    Like I said, Call of Duty is coming to multiple handhelds. Stop dreaming about it being a big seller for the Vita. Is COD as big on the superior platform of PC as it is on Xbox or PS3? No. Did COD get too big on PSP back in 2007? Or on the Wii, DS? No. It’s big on Xbox and PS3 and it will probably stay that way.

    You should be happy if it even comes out on Vita, the Vita won’t have a user base to support it (there is no way around this, the user base will be small compared to 3DS) and even the 3DS will struggle to get a COD not because of hardware but because Activision will favor the 250 million iOS devices out there. Also Activision can say they will work to make something for the Vita but that means nothing. Of course they are, just as EA will work to make Madden work on all platforms. Capcom said they’d work to make Resident Evil work on PSP and how did that work out? Don’t count the eggs before the hatch guys (I’m not saying they won’t hatch, just be patient!)

    I’m sorry, but that’s the truth. They are more likely to make another Zombies iOS app than COD on 3DS/Vita, and if they do make it for the Vita it will be on 3DS too. And neither version will be particularly huge, but will both be pretty neat.

    Now go back to playing whichever COD you enjoy the most and stop telling me how stupid I am for having an opinion on various things in space and time.

    And why did you put quotations around “life”?

    @19

    A few mistakes were made about the North American market. I too am in the NA market. Handheld gaming comes in 2 flavors. The 3DS for kids and the Vita for grown ups. Phoney games are mostly for softcore throw away experiences that fit on a device that has limited capability for decent controls and graphics.

    Keep telling yourself 3DS is for kids and Vita is for gamers while Square Enix and Capcom support the 3DS in big ways.

    Seriously, is it that bad to say the 3DS is, and all console for that fact, should be aimed at EVERYONE.

    Gamers will never be able to support a console, hence why you aim at everyone possible, like y’know any normal business.

  25. Dragon246

    @poketrainer , its a english translation of a latin word. You should know it by now.
    Frankly, I don’t think COD will be a big system seller for vita as I think it will pale in comparison to its console brethren (not much in graphics but maybe in online department). I for one want more story based games for vita.
    I hope that both handhelds survive for 5 years as it would be good for competition.
    Sorry for calling you a retard.
    Square Enix and Capcom are supporting vita too in a good way . UMvC is a launch title and SQ is making many games for vita including a remaster of FFX

    @Poketrainer, That video you linked earlier is incredibly bias, they purposely over-saturated the pictures & that lighting was horrific. Your’e kidding yourself if you thin there’s not much of a difference, the 3DS is slightly weaker than a Gamecuble while the PSV is somewhere between the Wii & PS3. But we all know graphics don’t sell consoles, not once (afaik) has the strongest console won. Price is what sells console, even if the you get more value (from a technical perspective) from the more expensive console. The 3DS costs around $103 to make vs the PSV for $159, neither counting R&D, software & shipping etc (Nintendo’s includes the pitiful $2.50 to actually assemble) yet both launched at the same price.

    @Christopher Jack, what do you expect from a nintendo propaganda site. Poketrainer should not troll on vita articles or if he wishes to do it then he should bring out facts from a reliable source not from a BS site.

    #27 3 years ago
  28. poketrainer

    @Dragon246, @Chris

    Wow, sorry. Didn’t think you guys were going to take this that seriously.

    I don’t see how the 3DS is weaker than the GameCube since it has about three times the RAM as a GameCube (128MB)

    I didn’t think the video is that bad, the lighting seemed fair enough but like I’ve said repeatedly Uncharted looks better, but I don’t think the gap is that big. That’s my opinion, so what? It doesn’t make it right or wrong. I’m not asking you to believe it, so why get up in arms?

    I just really think the difference is comparable to the difference between PS2 and Xbox, aesthically I suppose. I know the Vita has X, Y, and Z that makes it better of course. All I was saying was that like games that were graphically superior on the OG Xbox, they usually played just as good on the PS2 if not with some small compromises so I think both Vita and 3DS versions of COD would be pretty sweet.

    @Dragon246 How am I trolling if its just my opinion? I can say you’re trolling for doing the same thing, but that would be silly as its simply your opinion. Trolling would be insulting your opinion and putting you down because of it.

    Oh yea and that “life” went totally over my head! Whoops!

    FeaturePreacher is just jealous that they still have a J2me phone, for devices with limited graphics, they have way too decent visuals.

    Quite frankly, after the Tretton guy said that about Mario, I for one won’t buy a smartphone, let alone home console from Sony. I just don’t want to support them. It was just so unbelievably tacky.

    @28, RAM is just memory (Random Access Memory), it has nothing to do with raw power, although having more RAM will allow you to do more things at once. The real power comes from the CPU while the graphics obviously comes from the GPU.

    The 3DS’ overall power is similar to the iPhone 3GS’ while the PSV is almost double the iPhone 4S. Hate when people compare numbers they don’t even understand, like those fools who compare just clock speeds when they compare a processor, some actually believe that a Pentium 4 @3Ghz is better than a Core i7 @2.5Ghz.

    @29, I agree that Jack’s comments were pretty offensive, but its hard to disagree with him, I’ve played my old DS Lite on the train, among other places before & just got all these glaring looks & insulting comments (from under their breath). But if you let every offensive comment that a suit said from every company prevent you from future purchases, well you’re not going to be able to buy anything anymore.

    @Chris

    The only things I’ve read peg the 3DS’s GPU in the range of 200Mhz (without details on underlocking) and the CPU between 800Mhz-1Ghz (without details on underclocking) so I really wouldn’t know more than that but on paper it sounds pretty big over the Cube IMO, and certainly Revelations looks better than RE4 IMO.

    @Dragon

    To be fair, I think the video has equally mediocre conditions for both the RE and Uncharted videos.

    And calling people names doesn’t make anyone’s opinion look better in any way whatsoever.

    Once again, sorry to have irked the two of you.

    #30 Well, I don’t see how that proves anything, that way I might as well visit some local ethanol perfume drinking guys sleeping on the subway floor, and ask them how they feel about my fav videogame.

    They weren’t offensive, they were tacky. Another one was when Reeves said how people play computer toys instead of going to a restaurant because there’s a recession.. Thats sickening tbh. They keep this stuff up and it won’t be too long when someone states Sony are modern day Goethe and Ninty are for neanderthals.. I don’t want to give money to a company which allows it’s representatives to state something that tasteless and stupid.

    I could only imagine what they would be saying if the market was as dominant by them as in the mid 00s (Kutaragi comes to mind, but that one at least didn’t touch on the subject of taste, so whatever, didn’t mind him much). It’s a shame that a company which has some decent engineers employs that idiotic reps.

    @ Poketrainer, I apologized earlier for that. I dont think anyone is in a condition to assess both games as very few people have played both games expect journalists.
    And please don’t think I am irked.I like this discussion.Also I just want to highlight the positive things about my investment as just yesterday I preordered vita for 400$.

    @34, They’re just opinions by individuals, you don’t have to agree or even like what they say, you can’t gag every opinion you don’t like. I do agree with you, but boycotting Sony because of that sounds pointless, if you like the product, get it, corporate loyalty doesn’t matter either way. I tend to dislike Nintendo because of their reliance on gimmicks, nostalgia & childish games, but as I’ve said, I bought a DS Lite (mainly ‘cuz I like the Pokemon series) but what people think of CoD is similar to how I think of the modern day Mario.

    They don’t have any opinions, just say what fits their corporate culture. So obv it comes from the root, not a single rep can say what he thinks, and it’s not like he thinks anything about it anyway. It will make me feel better knowing that I don’t buy from someone who pushes a culture like that.

    The PSV has a quad core cpu (likely to be in ipad 3) and a quad core gpu, 512mb of Ram and 128mb of Vram, sorry but that is like 3x more powerful than 3DS. If the Vita sells well, then big budget games will be made for it and optimised for it. Also the online experience on PSV will be superior to the PS3, 3DS is lame, most people turn the 3d off lol, so much wasted power turning the game into 3d.

    @poketrainer
    You aren’t really going to win that argument based on a poor video comparison. Its two different games, two different situations, and poorly produced in order to reenforce the producers predetermined opinion.

    The Vita has better specs, better resolution. The 3DS has a lot of games you are not going to get anywhere else and a funky 3D screen. Those are its strengths. You simply aren’t going to win a technical comparison argument.

    I’m not jealous of anything phones have to offer. I’m just pointing out the step backwards that games on these limited devices really are. But I’m sure you love getting Angry with your Birds and Cutting the Ropes. Keep on slumming it with those phoney games.

    #40 Don’t worry, buddy. it won’t be too long when pad accessories for these things take the likes of you out of their misery. It ‘ll end soon.

    I never played Angry Birds, well I did for about a minute. I tend to play Death Rally, Chaos Rings and Chinatown Wars if you’re interested.

    I’m not worried at all. I’ve already seen that there are several pads for your pad available that support maybe 1 or 2 games. I’m certain there will be more that support 1 or 2 games. I’m also certain there are people that will refuse to see the contradiction of saying touch only interfaces are the future while hoping for a gamepad with physical buttons. Keep on slumming it with those phoney games, ok.

    I own a 3DS, am waiting for my Vita and have owned and gamed upon an iphone and now a Windows phone.

    I can see both the benefits and the negatives of each and I enjoy a selection of games available on each.

    I am content.

    #43 3 years ago
  44. Da Man

    #42 No contradiction there, touch is ideal for everything else, and for many games it’s sufficient, but even some shoulder buttons will do the trick. They do well enough w/o it even.

    Personally, I just don’t see any appeal in handhelds, the whole concept of playing home games in a park is lost on me..After all I go to park for a walk, you see.

  45. poketrainer

    I wasn’t compare clock speeds, I just said “All I know” and mentioned the clock speeds.

    And I’ve never even tried to “win” an argument about the 3DS being more powerful than the Vita at all. I simply had an opinion on how the hardware gap is comparable to other famous hardware gaps in gaming history.

    #45 3 years ago
  46. DrDamn

    @45
    Didn’t say you thought it was more powerful. Simply you had a proposition and used evidence to back it up, after people disagreed you reiterated. That’s kind of the very definition of trying to win an argument.

    #46 3 years ago
  47. poketrainer

    @DrDamn

    You really need to re-read my original comment, I said “its not like the graphics gap is that big” which implies that I believe there is a graphics gap, just not one I think is large as would matter to me.

    I’ve never tried to win this, I’m just saying what I think. I’ve repeatedly said that doesn’t make me right, wrong or anything. Just my opinion, and nothing more.

    #47 3 years ago

    @ Everyone , the gap is as big as it could have got for 250$ (price at which both were launched ), that is my argument.

    Until Apple truly acknowledges the potential of video games on iOS, its not going to go far. Sure there maybe a few good games, but the fact is, touch control alone sucks, very imprecise, slow & obscures the screen.

    It can be fun in some situations but touch screen-only gaming plain sucks, the king of people who’d disagree with me are those who’d compare Angry Birds with Uncharted. Another problem with these tablets is that they’re useless,they’re essentially overpriced multimedia machines. And 4:3 for multimedia purposes is utterly useless, unless you intend to view content exclusively from the past century.

    I mean, I’d like to know what percent of iPad owners use them for productivity, I mean, graphic design certainly isn’t an option as Apple didn’t even include support for stylus’. Now I know capacitive screens have their problems with stylus’ but these problems can be overcome. I could also be that 90% of its other productivity uses can be bested by a superior, more specific (& obviously cheaper) products. I’ve heard one guy justify his iPad purchase for its camera, yes, a $600 camera with a ridiculously low MP count & a poor sensor on top of that…

    #49 3 years ago

    @48
    Doesn’t really cover all the variables though does it. 3DS has two screens
    one of which is a significant expense as is 3D. Whilst Sony has admitted it doesn’t want to lose money on each machine the margins are different to Nintendo who were able to slash prices quickly.

    @47
    Ok lets just agree to disagree on that.

    #50 3 years ago
  51. Dragon246

    @ DrDamn , of course. Some people will still like 3ds as its different from vita but just a few days ago I was deciding which one to buy and I came to the conclusion that vita rocks although I have to pay a pretty hefty price for it .

    #51 3 years ago
  52. DrDamn

    For reference I have a 3DS and am getting a Vita on Wednesday. In fact I’m trading in my 3DS as part of the deal. Not to say I think one is ‘better’ than the other. I just wasn’t playing on the 3DS and the Vita has more to offer me personally.

    As a side point part of my reasoning was related to the whole dual analog sticks thing. I don’t want a poorly conceived and designed add-on. If it was that important to the games they want to put out it should have been there in the first place. Nintendo of all people should understand this as its a major strength of the Wii that the controllers are standard and not optional.
