    Yay……. Can’t wait…

    next thing you know a few years from now windows 9 comes out and every game from that point forward requires the 64 bit version and then no one can play any games on PC and will have to migrate to consoles because PC gamers will end up not being able to keep up with the increasing rate in immediacy and adoption of the technology. just a hypothesis; could happen though.

    • Unoriginality

      I hate to break it to you but your hypothesis was rendered void years ago when Vista came out, now it was not the best operating system but you could get a 64 bit version. When Win7 came, 64 bit quickly became the default option on new machines because ram became cheap enough to stick more than 4 gigs into a computer. Now, try finding any windows 8 machine that does not run 64 bit.
      So, PC’s have been running 64 bit for years, it is about time the companies making games made use of it.

      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        Oh..my bad. I’ve never used Vista or had it on my computer so I had no idea. And yeah, it’s about time games starting taking advantage of this.

  • Kyle Jackson

    I’ll wait for a reloaded patch then.

  • Cleiton

    i cant change the Texture resolution in the game. I can change
    everything else but that. Its on “Normal” settings, if i try to change
    to High or Extra it just give me a black screen and after a while it
    returns to “Normal” again.

    I’ve HD 6970 2GB GDDR5 and 4GB RAM.

    Is there a restriction for texture as well? Any1 have a fix for that?

    Cause lets face it, on “Normal” the textures a pretty crappy…

    • XtremeGamer

      I have the same graphic card as you do and I have the same problem!

  • Michael Schore

    I am getting an error when the game starts which is being caused by the iw6sp64_ship.exe file. Anyone come across a fix for this? How hard is the GPU requirement? I have a GTS 250 card that runs MW3 like a champ.

    • sssgadget

      I think same problem as mine. DirectX 10 is not supported :(

  • Raphael Kennedy

  • Hamid Shokri

  • pangki

    no sound after i installing COD Black Ops II in my PC!!! “error 4516″ what solution??? can U give me some suggestion for my problem,,resolved will help me n great thanks…

  • HopeNotHateBNP

    This game will not run on ANY of my 32bit PCs. As a rule I do not require the use of 64bit as I only have a small amount of memory in my machines (<4Gb). I did install 64bit and the game keeps crashing. My graphics card is the HD5770, so I am guessing this is why? Guess it is time for a new graphics card!
