Call of Duty 3 is a PS3 Launch Title |

Everybody knows that I’m a Call of Duty 2 fan. I play it every day at work on my lunch hour, so I’m really looking forward to getting my PS3 and buying Call of Duty 3. As it turns out, I’ll be playing Call of Duty 3 on the day I get my PS3! I plan to buy CoD3 as one of my launch titles, because it has recently been confirmed as such.

As well, it’s been confirmed as a 720p/1080i title. I forget where I saw that, so you’ll have to trust me. 🙂 (Kotaku, I think.) Personally, it won’t affect me because my HDTV isn’t 1080p. But for all those people out there who are getting 1080p sets (and making sure that they have 1080p inputs!) for use with the PS3, this could be somewhat of a bummer.

Here’s is IGN’s preview of the game.

My questions: Will the game still contain a Search and Destroy game mode? Will local multiplayer allow four players? Can several local players all get online together? Is a scout (for example) restricted to using only a certain set of weapons? If you pick up a weapon from the enemy, that might mean that you can’t use it, which would suck. Is there a cooperative mode? For how many players? Oooh this game looks like it’ll be a blast! Did you notice that you can cook grenades? You can see it in the video.

    Only 1080i or is that a typo?

  • Huh?

  • francois

    Can we play with a mouse and keyboard?

  • Don’t know – though that would be cool.

  • francois

    It would be cool to use the motion sensor to control the view of the soldier. It would basically replace the mouse. I am curious how well it would work.

  • Scott

    I mean, will the game not support 1080p on the PS3?

  • That’s right.

  • Blue Spotted Frog

    Are there any games for the PS3 that are expected to support 1080p for sure? I wasn’t expecting COD 3 to support 1080p but I am expecting the next Gran Turismo to support since the tech demo at E3 had 1080p resolution. I can’t imagine a lot of developers are shooting for this becuase this will inflate the cost of development further.

  • Yeah, there are some that are targetting 1080p. Unfortunately I can’t find the article where I mentioned one of them.

    What is the big deal about 1080p? I really don’t get it. Save your money and buy a larger 720p. Like I have said before the distance from you couch to the screen will determine if you even need a 1080p. A 32″ 1080p from 9 feet will look the same as a 32″ 720p. Do your research and you will see what I mean. The only signal in 1080p you COULD have is Blu-Ray and PS3. You will not have access to any cable or satelite in 1080p for many, many years (the bandwidth isn’t big enough for more than a few channels). The fact is that they are compressing the 720p so much that it isn’t its full possible picture. I would hate to see what they would do to a 1080p signal.

    !080p games will be a dime a dozen. I would suspect that almost all of them will be from Sony’s in-house studios that will spend the extra money. Blu-Ray and HD-DVD will be 1080p.

    Ask yourself this question. Do you watch enough movies and think Sony will have enough games in 1080p to justify spending more than double for the same size screen? You can buy a 50″ DLP or LCD for $1500 to $1700 for a 720p. You will spend over $3500 for a 50″ 1080p. I would rather have two 50″ 720p HDTVS than one 1080p. Just my 2 cents.
