Black Ops 3 for PS3 and Xbox 360 will not have a campaign

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Black Ops 3 won't be able to run the single player campaign.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will not have a single-player campaign.

This news came from the Call of Duty blog, which stated that

"...the Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will feature Multiplayer and Zombies gameplay only, not Campaign. The ambitious scope of the 1-4 player co-op Campaign design of the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware."

In an attempt to offer the best experience, the developer decided that the ambitious campaign would not work well on last generation's consoles. With Call of Duty arguably being the biggest video game franchise of the past ten years, this decision could signal the final moments of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

It should be noted that creating a big first person campaign is certainly no simple task, however this certainly must be disappointing for players on the older consoles who were looking forward to Black Ops 3.

Were you going to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on and older console? Let me know what you think of the lack of a single player campaign and whether or not the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game are worth $60.
