PS3 Call of Duty 4 Delayed

1 min read
[Last Update] The delay is affecting emerging markets only

[Update] It appears that this delay does not affect the US release… still looking for confirmation about the European release though.

I just received confirmation this morning that Call of Duty 4 for the PS3 has been delayed.

The length of the delay has not yet been confirmed and I am still waiting for confirmation on whether this is a local or international issue.

Both the 360 and PS3 versions are being distributed by Megarom and with the launch party happening on Thursday I can only imagine that the 360 and PC versions are still on track.

As soon as Megarom gets backs to me with an official comment I’ll update this post…..

[Update] The worldwide PS3 release of Call of Duty 4 has been pushed back to the 16th of November.

This is the official word from Activision, they have not stated why it has been delayed either. So I guess all those international sites haven’t received the update yet.

You do have to wonder why yet another PS3 release has been delayed?

    This is getting beyond the surreal isn’t it? Is there ever going to be a PS3 game that a) launches on date; b) is not plagued with developement problems?

    Ho hum.

    Some research shows that the game is shipping in the US on the PS3 already, and that all versions are still scheduled for launch on the same day in Europe (Friday) – this is therefore a LOCAL issue.

    Take 2 is already shipping the SA version today, though, my Xbox 360 copy is on the way ๐Ÿ™‚

    I guess we can label this one as lazy distributers instead of lazy developers. Are there any people involved with the PS3 thats not lazy?
    I guess as soon as you touch the PS3 a feeling of sleepiness overcomes you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Bob as far as I can tell it is only available tomorrow in the US so nothing is confirmed yet…

    What I find strange is that like I said the SA distributer is the same company for the 360 and PS3… so what’s happened… I am being stonewalled by Megarom now ๐Ÿ™

    Why have I been put on a list for moderation? I’ve never been rude to you.

    @Bob, nothing personal you just had 2 or more links in the posting so the system put you in moderation (it would have spammed you straight if you hadn’t posted before)….

    Back to the point, yes I have seen them saying they will be delivered and nothing to say they won’t. Like I said I am trying to get more info, all I have been told is that the PS3 version is delayed in South Africa.

    I know Megarom distribute both so I am trying to get confirmation on the reason for the delay…. I promise I’ll update when I have the details

    well i think this is beyond a joke now,if i knew all the games were gonna be delayed like this for the ps3, i would have kept my 360….in fact i am thinking of flogging ps3 and getting 360 and wii instead

    Updated… The worldwide release date for COD4 on the PS3 is now the 16th of November. This has been confirmed by Activision but no reasons have been given…

    Gav, got a link?

    Doh, sorry, don’t mean to DP – what I meant to add was that it’s probably not an issue with the game per se, as it appears some guys already have copies. I suspect they’re probably just having minor issues setting up the servers.

    Funny…I have my PS3 version right here. Seems Worldwide must have different meanings…


  15. LazySAGamer

    November 6, 2007 at 15:30

    @Kspraydad, where are you from?

    I am confused here as well because all I have is the mail from Activision stating that the release date has been moved to the 16th but no one else is reporting it?

    I am trying to get more info though

    I don’t know what he’s talknig about. I have COD4 sitting at home which I got from the local gamestop.

    I really doubt that this is a worldwide thing. This news would have showed up all over N4G.com or PS3Fanboy.com if it was.

    Look more like the local distributors f’ed up.

    @papa “Look more like the local distributors fรขโ‚ฌโ„ขed up.” – if we did we’d have told you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    we try hard to get our releases on the same day it just doesn’t make sense to release games on different days.

    but next time you want to slate a distributor, just remember that we take orders from publishers.

    so we are really sorry we couldn’t get the PS3 title on the same day.

    @HC local gamestop? you mean gamestop.co.za?

    HC seems to be in America….

    America’s release seems to be on track so why is ours all buggered?


  21. HC

    November 6, 2007 at 18:23

    Sorry about the ambiguity. Yes I live in the States. We got our COD4’s just fine yesterday.

    But I think the first line itself is misleading. “I just received confirmation this morning that Call of Duty 4 for the PS3 has been delayed.” It may not be available in SA, but that’s not true for the world.

    BTW, since PS3 games have no region encoding, I think you guys in SA can just get it from Amazon.

    @HC – that is a negative.
    Amazon “cant” ship software to SA. I’m know other international online stores do – but I’m not sure if they have COD4 in stock.

    @HC, yeah it seems my information was flawed… thanks for clearing that up. At least we know that the game is ready adn it isn’t another development issue…

    @Trat and what would I do with a bunch of American Hits? Get money from all the google ads ;)…

    Seriously why don’t people think first?

    I know for a fact the X360 & PC versions are in SA already but will only be shipped/available on Friday. Take2 got a slap from Megarom for releasing the game early so a few lucky guys in SA got hold of it.

    No PS3 versions I could find amongst all the other platform copies though.

    @Trat – Do you know where SA is? Nevermind…

    There are obviously int fanboys out there looking to dig dirt on the PS3, googling “Cod4 PS3 delayed” and hitting lazygamer.CO.ZA. although I imagine there’s a large contingent of geographically challenged peeps who don’t know anything but .com.

    Cod4 is not delayed for the ps3!!! This is more FUD http://www.ebgames.com/product.asp?product%5Fid=270115

    I just got mine today at GameStop, so sir you have no idea what you are talking about.

    Go to a store.

    Even when I update the article I still get people telling me the same thing….

    One thing I am 100% certain about is the PS3 version of COD4 has been delayed in SA.

    No news from Europe yet but like us it is only meant to be released on Friday there so we can’t confirm anything yet.

    It is blatantly obvious that the Americans have it already, thanks for that info….

    Okay just received confirmation from Megarom, this delay is affecting emerging markets only..

    Apologies to our first world friends for making you panic ๐Ÿ˜‰
