COD4 update info for 360/PS3, Great new features!
Great News! The new feature patch talked about last week (with new Kill Cams, Host Migration, and other new features) for the Xbox 360 has finished it’s internal testing and development and has officially been sent off to Microsoft for Certification. It’s only a matter of Microsoft putting it through the certification paces and it will be available for download for all Xbox 360 players.
If you forgot, keep reading to re-cap on all the new features this patch brings to players.
As for the Playstation 3 version of this patch, it’s currently finishing up it’s final internal testing (which I’m expecting to go very quickly) and should be heading off to Sony for it’s own certification in the near future.
New Kill Cams
We’ve added new Kill Cams for everything. So now those “WTF!” grenades that seemingly come from no where, you can see that a guy threw it over the house, it hit a tree branch, bounced off a rock, into a tiny window, where you happened to be pointing out of, and say…… whoa. Follow behind RPGs and M203’s kill cams, claymores, Airstrikes where you can follow the bomb from the plane until it hits you.
Now you won’t have to be dropped back by yourself when a host leaves. Instead, everyone will stay together, a new host will be assigned, and the game will auto-start back up. Keeping everyone together, no more re-inviting, re-joining games because some host leaves. This has been a tall order and something that we’ve put a lot of work into which has allowed us to really optimize online play all around not just specifically with Host migration.
Improved Sniper / ACOG Accuracy:
Sniper and ACOG scopes have been tweaked and are really improved. I use to not snipe at all (mainly because I’m a horrible sniper), but now it’s so much more fluid and natural, while still having the same difficulty to use, it has no more “WTF I know I hit that guy!” moments.
Upgraded Spectator Cam:
Now when you’re in spectator mode you can follow them in 3rd person, switch to their first person view, or rotate the camera in a full 360 degrees around whoever you’re watching.
Quick Mute Option
Users will now be able to quick mute players on the fly by pulling up the scoreboard in-game or via the lobby by simply going to their name and hitting the mute assigned button. As quickly as calling in and designating an airstike. So no longer getting killed while trying to make your way through the Xbox blades for the mute option so you can shut up the guy who always seems to find it funny to sing into his mic or cover up for his lack of skill by telling you how to play Domination his way."

Sounds good, especially the host migration. It seems like people bail out just when you get a good group together.

Yes I love that and the mute option. Was playing the other day on an objective map and this kid kept singing "Mary had a little Lamb" into everyone's mics on our team. That way noone on our team could coordinate a thing.

I was playing one night and had to deal with the chatter of a bunch of little kids who laughed at each time somone got killed or they killed someone. It was damn annoying and when I told them to shut up and pay, I got booted at the end of the game

Where's the fix for my confetti grenades, the leak in my sniper rifle and party-popper shotgun?

This is my fix for that type of thing:

Come over and meet people and see if it would be interesting. Since LIVE put in new lists we can now see ALL the COD4 players online who are playing at the same time, it's a great feature with a group like this.

I'm loving the Host Migration and Quick Mute Option. Too bad my PS3 is currently in the shop. I guess i'm going to have to wait to upgrade.

Well I hope your PS3 is out of the shop! I just got my 360 back from Microsoft, plugged it in and all disks are unplayable.
Now I have to send it BACK?!

That's a real drag. Do they not test the system before they send them back to us? That's unacceptable
