Call Of Duty Ghosts Website No Longer Lists Free Fall DLC For Wii U

call of duty ghosts

A few weeks ago we noticed that the Call of Duty Ghosts pre-order page had the Free Fall DLC listed underneath the Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the highly anticipated game. Now it appears as though the Free Fall DLC is no longer listed for the Wii U version. This is particularly disappointing if true, as Activision has previously stated that they will do everything they can do to make the Wii U a success.

Thanks, Exy

      1. And has that been openly confirmed by anyone? Even the media? No? Then I blame Activision and others. Why? Because all I hear from them including EA (biggest whiners), Ubisoft (traitors in the making), WB (Corporate Two-Face) is weak ass lies and excuses.

      2. also, smartphones and tables mean nothing, as the Wii is a gaming console, not a smart phone
        not to mention that if that logic applies, then the 3DS wouldnt be the best and fastest selling handheld on themarket

      3. Yes, it sold millions… But just because it was the cheapest console available. I own a Wii and despite I enjoyed many games, the sad truth is that the Wii sold so many consoles because of its low price and how easy it was to hack the console and get your games for free…

      4. True. But unlike with X360, the Wii had no consequences after hacking. But on X360, you did it at your own risk because of the Xbox Live ban. But really, Wii sold millions thanks to the low price. Many parents just bought the cheapest console for their kids and said “hey, it has Mario, my kids will enjoy it, besides, it’s so cheap!”. Any console that’s cheap and has good games will be a popular success, even though the real ‘core’ gaming community would be like “……”. I’m not saying the Wii had no games for gamers. It did! And some of the best games of this past generation are on the Wii (some are even exclusives!), but still, the console was cheap and it had some good games… There’s no other answer for Wii’s success. And even beyond the few good games, the low price….

      If this is true AGAIN, time to boycott every single one of them except the Segans and for the meantime the Ubisoftians…

      2. How about they make the Wii U version just as good as the rest?…

        Why would I pay the same amount of money as the other versions when it has missing features or other things even the Xbox360 gets?…

        If they want my support, how about the Wii U version is 20% cheaper instead then I would not have a problem…

        It’s not our or High Command’s problem that their games don’t sell quite good on Nintendo consoles because they most of the times make a lesser version or a different game that’s hardly comparable to the others…

        Like the Ubisoftians just said a while ago…

        The Wii U was an “Experiment Floor” so that they could put their real efforts on non Nintendo machines and I’m sure others follow the same path…

      3. That’s a terrible argument. The Wii U version should cost just as much, wether or not you get DLC, because you’re paying for exactly what’s on the Xbox or PS# disc. Wether or not you get the option of paying more money for extra content is irrelevant.

      1. I’ve heard of companies generally having problems with getting their DLC on the Nintendo store, and Activision is probably the best example. Apparently they’d been having talks with Nintendo about bringing the DLC to the console from March to July.

    2. Sad… but with every negative news that Nintendo just lay there and take… it gets very apparent Nintendo just does not care and feel they will sell consoles once again on the strength of their 1st and 2nd party games. For me… there is a reason why I once again will be a two console owner. I have the WiiU and already pre-order my PS4.

  1. I always knew this BS wasn’t true and here it is by cold facts. Another fucking gimped game that doesn’t deserve the underappreciated treatment its giving. Nintendo, its time to get new 3rd party partners because these fuckers are blindly taking advantage of your gamers and lying through their damn teeth about giving Wii U equal treatment. Not only that, its time to fucking sue those bastard companies for intentional sabotage of your console. You paid them and this is what they’re doing? SUE THEM ALL FOR YOUR MONEY BACK.

    I’m so fucking tired of this shit. Can someone create a petition to all these 3rd parties to stop with their bullshit on Wii U.

    1. Nintendo should actually help Activision. The reason BLOPS 2 hand no DLC was because they couldn’t get it on Nintendo’s online network (whether that’s getting it working or just being unable to put it on the store I don’t know).

  3. Don’t be so foolish. No DLC is for our own good. This sounds odd, but it is true.

    Matchmaking in cod is weird. It only searches for people with the exact same combination of DLC packs as you.

    So let us say you have DLC pack 1 and 3. It won’t search for people with 1. It wont search for people with 3. It will search for people with both. This also applies tope order DLC.

    So aside from ruining matchmaking, it would also make the only playable mode TDM. And don’t argue “It is for the principle”, because if you really cared, you wouldnt ask for DLC that could make the game unplayable.

    1. Simple solution; buy all the DLC or don’t whine.

      And it IS down to the principle of the matter.
      No matter how you try to downplay it, having LESS CONTENT compared to versions on competing consoles is NOT going to increase the sales of ANY version of ANY game on ANY system.

      WE ARE NOT THIRD CLASS CITIZENS IN THE GAMING COMMUNITY!
      We deserve better treatment than this from game makers.

      The DLC hasn’t made the game unplayable for other consoles, it wouldn’t do so for the Wii U. That’s a blatant fact.

      1. You get just as much content when buying the game as the other consoles, you just don’t have the option of paying more money for DLC.

        And you can be treated as third class citizens, you’re in the minority. That’s how it works in any system with different groups and different needs, the majority have their needs tended to first.

      2. You said that it hasn’t made it unplayable on other consoles. Need I remind you that they have 500,000 people on, and many more dedicated players? They have a larger matchmaking pool. For peak times in Black Ops 2, er had 4,500 online. DLC would ruin that game.

        You also said “buy every DLC pack”. For one, I shouldn’t be forced to spend 120 dollars on the game. And again, how many people are going to buy all of those DLC packs?

        There is no winning situation here. We are screwed either way, but it’s due to our numbers, not Activision.

  12. How many units has nintendo sold of the Wii U? last I heard the Wii was still outselling it. How many units of B Ops was sold for the Wii 1.2 million in a year I think, B Ops2 is just about 220k ten months into it, with an online community of approx 3k, how on earth do you think any game company is going to push for DLC with such poor numbers?

    Nintendud has still OPTED TO DISSALLOW DLC and are still trying to court “casual gamers” the poor Wii u sales shoulda told them that the “casual gamers” have already moved on to table & smart phone apps that give them the very games that Nintendud said gave it the edge.

    You are looking at the difference between dedicated servers (xbox and ps have) and makeshift fo-servers that Nintendud is getting by with. I truly believed the Wii U was going to be different, but I only bought one (have two Wii’s) because I am familiar with Iwata’s additude towards online gamers, I had hoped but I knew what was going to happen.

    Till Iwata steps down from Nintendo, us online gamers will continue to be snubbed. You bought into the BS Nintendud’s been feeding you, it’s not the game makers.
