Gamers demand CoD: Black Ops money back
PS3 version not up to snuff, it's claimed
Despite the fact that Sony's console is able to outperform Microsoft's Xbox 360, the PS3 version of Black Ops allegedly comprises "sub-par graphics, buggy software and less [sic] features" than its 360 equivalent.
The petition references a recent analysis of the game which claimed it was "clearly superior looking" on the Xbox 360.
Publisher Activision and developer Treyarch have allegedly failed to deliver promised features, which include online split-screen functionality - an option that is available on the 360.
One petitioner, James of Melbourne, says: "PS3 Black Ops is a mess. I bought it off the back of the stellar Modern Warfare 2, and its [sic] delivered nothing but technical hitch after technical hitch, and I just can't play it anymore because it keeps kicking me out of lobbies and having connections interrupted! Not to mention shocking frame rate issues!"
In less than 24 hours, over 2000 people have signed the petition.
Activision, which recently set record sales figures with Black Ops, has yet to respond. ®
Re: For such a grammar guru...
[sic] is used to indicate a flaw in the original quotation, as opposed to an error made by the person doing the quoting.
It should be used as many times as there are quotes with errors you wish to indicate are not your own.
i thought it was widely accepted tat the PS3 was a far more powerfull machine but a pig to code for compared to the 360.
Could be wrong, anyone got any good links?

AC stinks of troll.
PC gamers can't get refunds...
...due to DRM and locking games to accounts.
We don't often get demos, so we can't try before we buy, (unless we do something illegal) and of course we can't trade the games in either due to DRM. At least console gamers can trade in their copies and get some money back if they're not happy with them.
When PC gamers buy a game like this which is completely broken for over a week after release we are stuffed.
There really needs to be better consumer protection for this. Companies shouldn't be able to get away with a no refunds policy when games are so obviously broken or of poor quality.
