Does this mean, finally, we can take 4 players online on a single system into a match with 14 others in CoD4?

That's one thing I hated about the awesome Resistance, 1 player per console online. Or is 4 players limited only to single console deathmatch? Thanks to anyone who knows, and thanks for posting the pics!

Yes I think you can add 3 guest players to play with you. Although was this Online or offline?

I did too!

But! I read alot of the other sub-forums for information on home theater and components.

This forum helped me decide on my Onkyo 7.1 (without me posting - My bad).

Great stuff adam!

How about the connection to the PSN and your friends list? Are you able to send game invites to people outside the game? Do you have full access to your friends list? Is it there at all? Messaging...

...this stuff is pretty important for the online community. Hopefully they utilize the XMB abilities... While some games do, many still do not.

This is huge, Adam can you elaborate on this?

I know there's clan tags & parties, but is there any indication that there's a friends/clan list with status (offline, online, in game)?
post #190 of 703
Adam - thanks for the pics, those look great!

Is there any chance you can list the names of the maps for us? Just curious... Thanks!

Was the beta 16 players or 18? Not that 2 more or less makes much difference, just curious.

The only indication is that there is an "Invite Friends" tab when you're in your party... see above pics...

But we don't know if that means "new" friends you make within CoD... or your PSN list... Some games have one or the other... some have both (I like when it is both considering the PSN 50 friend limit).

Also, we don't know if you can send messages to people not currently playing CoD4 (ie offline, in their XMB or on another game). Some games let you send messages out side of the game and then you can launch and join that invite... Others, the players need to be logged into that games servers to use messaging.

As for the Clan Tags... in the 360 beta, all it meant was a tag... there didn't seem to be a clan homepage where you could invite people or leave messages for your clan.. .assign ranks... anything like that... It looks like all they have is the ability to add a clan tag after you've leveled up a bit... But anyone could add any tag... so it isn't like having a connected clan within that game.

I've heard the 360 will support 16 players. I really didn't want to bring that up because that might derail the thread. We already have one locked COD4 thread.

To be fair though, as someone pointed out, 16-18 players should be more than enough if that's what they designed the maps for.

Hey Adam, any chance you could post the names of the sixteen multiplayer maps? That would be incredible.

That kinda sucks. It wouldnt' be too hard to implement clans itself. it would just be a separate "friends" list in game. So basically 2 friends lists, except one is for clan support (of course with the normal features of a clan like clan leaders)

Ok, fair enough. I would think the same on both anyways unless one has dedicated servers and one doesn't, which I highly doubt.

Beta never did more than 12 players max...

The official Xbox Call of Duty 4 page states 2-16 players online...
The official PlayStation Call of Duty 4 page states 2-18 players online...


However a source in this thread at the Xbox forums (who apparently is talking to IW developer fourzerotwo) got this info:

user="just M0NKEY"
whats the maximum amount of players in a match

user="x CHEFS x"
Answer: 18 for the Xbox 360

So that's all we really have. 24 players via system link for the 360 is mentioned in there too.. .I'd assume it is the same for lan play on the PS3.
post #199 of 703
I can't see the images either. Argh!

I might be willing to host them. How many hits would they take? Don't want to max out my account...
post #200 of 703
thx freestyle. I'm guessing that means no dedicate servers then, if so then why would they have more for system link games than online?

simple answer? The connection speed over Lan is faster.

I guess I assumed wrongly that having dedicated servers didn't change lag having 2 players to above 40.
post #203 of 703
Well it appears that the maps for all versions (PC included) are designed for 18... but there's no limit for the PCs with the dedicated servers (as stated by an IW developer in a video interview)...

So IF the PS3 uses dedicated servers, it could be possible that, depending on bandwidth, you could go higher than the 18 limit just like the PS3... But we've seen nothing yet that says either console will be able to exceed the stated 18.

Is this a title I have to preorder or wait in line for at 9AM in the morning at Best Buy/Futureshop? Sorry for my ignorance but I'm not a gamer and this seems to be a must buy game for everyone. Before I had a PS3, I remember when big titles came out, the stores would advertise to pre-order to reserve your copy (I didn't understand what the big fuss was about at the time...do games really sell out?). They do this for DVDs all the time but you know the stores have a gazillion copies and I've never seen a DVD sold out before. I'm hoping to just be able to walk into one of those stores on opening day and pick one up but if its better to pre-order, I will.

I think you'll be safe finding a copy at walmart without pre-ordering. It seems people forget about walmart, and they also generally order the most copies.

I couldn't find Naruto for wii, it was all sold out at walmart, though they had copies at GS

both quotes from fourzerotwo

"Both versions, Xbox 360 and PS3 have the same number of players.

They both have 16 players max, except on Ground War gametype which has 18 players max. On BOTH consoles.

This applies to RANKED games on both consoles. Keep in mind you can have 18 players in private matches on any gametype on both consoles."

"Ground War is a specific 18 player playlists in Multiplayer. Essentially, it's exactly what it sounds like. Lots of people, lots of death. I'll let you experience it for yourself in a week."

For those of you having issues seeing the photos... it could be that the photobucket account is hitting its bandwidth limit...

Here are all the shots re-hosted to save adam828 some bandwidth and allow everyone to get their eyes on these beauties!
