The first fifteen minutes of Call Of Duty: Black Ops have hit the 'Net
If you can't wait the five or so hours required to actually, y'know, buy the game, then we've embedded the footage after the jump. Obviously, if you want to go into the game fresh then don't watch this footage. It's unbelievable how people will actively watch a video labelled "The First Fifteen Minutes Of Game X" and..
If you're not sad social enough to head down to London's massive Call Of Duty: Black Ops launch event tonight, don't worry: Activision's streaming the whole thing on their Facebook page
They're also pledging to upload plenty of images and information from the premiere which is set to feature plenty of celebrities and nerds fans. Heck, even the BBC are talking about it. Jump into the comments and..
We've noticed a fair bit of traffic coming into PushSquare via the search phrase "Where can I get Call Of Duty: Black Ops cheap?" Seeing as it's the time of year when every supermarket and mainstream retailer tries to undercut each other, we thought we'd give you a helping hand
The cheapest price for Call Of Duty: Black Ops seems to be at Blockbuster. They'll sell you the game for a minuscule..
There's a soldier in all of us apparently
At least, that's the point this live action Call Of Duty: Black Ops advertisement is trying to get across. It features Jimmy Kimmel and Kobe Bryant. They are people you've probably heard of if you live in North America. (Honestly, we do know who they are here in Britain. Just about.) The thing about the advert is, it's all a bit dumb. But in an absolutely..
Transformers: War For Cybertron was a good game, but it lacked the polish to carry it through the year
We played it obsessively for about three weeks, but we haven't touched it since. Still, it feels like there's a great Transformers game dying to get out of Activision, so it's great to see them commit to another game in the franchise. As well as a new Transformers game, Activision's also revealed..
If you're in the UK, then you'll know that it's around this time of year when retailers fight over who can sell the biggest video games for the lowest prices
It looks like Call Of Duty: Black Ops is the game to spark pricing fisticuffs this year, with HMV offering the game for a lowly Â£7.99 when you trade in EA's Medal Of Honor. Considering Black Ops' RRP is a whopping Â£54.99, that's quite a..
Square Enix -- who are bizarrely handling publishing duties on Call Of Duty: Black Ops in Japan -- have confirmed that certain elements of the localized first-person shooter will be cut in order for the title to see release
This includes Nazi references, as well as a particularly brutal interrogation scene. The game's due worldwide next week. Get hype.
We suppose we have a weakness to anything with James Bond on the cover
The last PlayStation 3 Bond game, Quantum Of Solace, was pretty rubbish. But we still found ourselves ploughing in the 30 hours or so needed to get the Platinum trophy. It's because it's got Bond on the box. Even though Activision appears dead-set on burying James Bond 007: Blood Stone, we can't help but feel a little excited..
Well Treyarch, take your seat on the throne
Looks like you've earned your place in the Call Of Duty elite. We still need to actually, y'know, play Call Of Duty: Black Ops to make sure but, man, we don't think we've ever been this excited for a Call Of Duty game. Infinity Ward â€” certainly as we knew them â€” are gone, and it looks like it's time for Treyarch to take their place as the premium Call..
Call Of Duty fans are crazy
They play one game all year round â€” imagine that! As such, they're itching for information about Call Of Duty: Black Ops, and we've got some information on the game's multiplayer maps. Just the titles for now, mind. Enjoy!</em>
Has a Call Of Duty protagonist ever talked? We're sure they have, but we can't think of particular instance
Sure, Soap ended up talking in Modern Warfare 2, but we don't think he ever said anything when he was the main character of Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Either way, as far as we can remember, Call Of Duty protagonists are pretty mute. Call Of Duty: Black Ops will change all that..
In "Gun Game" - one of Call Of Duty: Black Ops' new multiplayer game types - every kill matters
Not for your precious KDR or XP statistics, but because every kill rewards you with a new weapon. This new footage which has leaked onto YouTube shows the new game-type in action, and it looks like a ton of fun. The player starts of with a pistol before moving up through the ranks and gradually unlocking..
That's soon, right? We knew James Bond 007: Blood Stone was slated for this year, but it always felt like it was some way off
Mainly because the game only got announced a couple of months ago and, despite countless developer videos, not a lot's been said about the game. Still, it's out in two weeks according to VG247. The site also claims that there's no demo planned, so you're going to have to go..
InsideXBOX (we know, we know) recently got to head down to Treyarch to get a good look at Call Of Duty: Black Ops' multiplayer component -- despite the publication's affiliation with the "enemy", we thought you guys would appreciate the info too
There's plenty of footage in the trailer, including some background on design decisions and some welcome news regarding killstreaks. We still reckon this..
The first DJ Hero 2 reviews are in and it's all love from what we can see
Eurogamer's plumped up a juicy fat 9, as have IGN UK and Destructoid. The Metacritic's currently sitting pretty with an average score of 90; and they say the music genre's dead right? DJ Hero 2 is out this week. Who's picking it up?
.. It'll be the car sequences. With a studio like Bizarre Creations at the helm, there's absolutely no way the racing segments fail. This is their bread and butter. James Bond 007: Blood Stone continues to look really interesting to us. We're big Bond fans and we even enjoyed the last 007 game, Quantum Of Solace. Bizarre's a great studio, hopefully this exceeds expectations.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops' zombie mode was only recently confirmed by Activision, but footage of the mode is already hitting the Internet
The ten minute video, embedded after the jump, appears to show someone playing a slice of the new game's zombie component. Given how much of this game is leaking right now, we're going to say it's real. Though it's hard to make out too much detail due to the grainy..
Call Of Duty: Black Ops isn't out for a few more weeks
As such, Activision want to keep the content a surprise. So YouTube videos of people playing the game don't go down to well with the PR folks over at Acti's head-office. As such, you should digest this footage as quickly as you can. Don't say we didn't warn you if a big "This content has been removed," pops up when you eagerly press..
Fish are friends, not food
Whilst we wait for Japanese fishing RPG Tsuritore, there's another scaly simulator on the way in the form of Rapala Pro Bass Fishing, swimming its way to Europe on October 29th. Already released in North America, the game comes with its own proprietary wireless rod controller but is also fully compatible with Move for all...
Guess what game is out today in America? EA's Medal Of Honor
Guess who's decided to release a story trailer for their own first-person shooter? Activision. Cue bombastic action and big guns in this Call Of Duty: Black Ops story trailer. We have a feeling this will be the best Call Of Duty campaign since Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Then again, it's going to seem amazing after the mess of Modern..
According to a report on Kotaku this arvo (read it in an Australian accent, it works - we think), Raven Software has dismissed 40 employees
The studio behind one of this year's best shooters, Singularity, is thought to be working on the next batch of Call Of Duty DLC. Yeah, life sucks right? Activision commented that Raven is "realigning its workforce to better reflect the studio's upcoming..
GameStop's dropped the first hints of what we can expect sales-wise from Treyarch's Call Of Duty: Black Ops when it drops next month
The US retailer's reporting that pre-orders for the latest Call Of Duty have already out-stripped the previous game; with the big hype machine still to kick in. According to the chain's SVP Bob McKenzie the title has seen "all-time record reservations" and..
Activision's confirmed that European copies of the DJ Hero 2 bundle - both the turn-table and party sets - will come with an additional bonus while stocks last: a copy of the original DJ Hero game
That means if you're coming into the series fresh, you'll start out with a whopping 170 mixes. Not bad, right? The problem is, both bundles are still extortionate. But hey, if you like free things...
Activision's announced that the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops will launch with 3D television support for those with compatible home theater set-ups
The functionality will be available out of the box via an options screen. It's a neat little bonus for those with 3D TVs and a particularly surprising announcement (who though CoD would go 3D eh?). Going by the slew of hands-on impressions published..
Here's the debut trailer for the recently announced NASCAR: The Game 2011 from Activision and Eutechnyx
It's heavy on CGI, but from what we could tell, there are cars driving around an oval circuit. Which is really all you need for NASCAR. This trailer has some cool audio work, mind. We hope that's represented in the final product. What else do you want us to say? It's a video game. About cars..
Treyarch are doing a lot with this year's Call Of Duty title
By incorporating currency and creation mechanics, players will be able to develop their own online identity when playing Call Of Duty: Black Ops â€” which is very exciting to us. In games of this kind, there's always the want to show off. Now you'll be able to do so with custom emblems, weapons, dots and character types.
After much ado about, erm, something; Activision has announced that they will be rebooting the NASCAR franchise with NASCAR: The Game 2011
EA previously held the racing license, but decided to terminate their affiliation with the American past-time. Most interestingly, the game will be developed here in the UK by Eutechnyx - a British studio with a series of racing titles to their credit. Even more..
Move can become a huge number of in-game items â€“ not shovels or whips though, remember â€“ but that doesn't mean Activision boss Bobby Kotick is worried it spells the end for his company's wide array of plastic gameplay enhancers. Speaking to Edge Online, Kotick said that although Move offers some fantastic experiences it can't...
After numerous rumours, Treyarch's finally decided to lift the lid on Call Of Duty: Black Ops' zombie component
The studio describes the "anticipated feature" as one of COD's "worst kept secrets" â€” which is becoming a catch all for any announcement which gets leaked early. "Zombies have been such a hit with our community that we were committed to bringing brand new zombie..
Strategy guide publishers Brady Games are the latest to say, "Yo, Call Of Duty: Black Ops is going to have zombies in it
" Retailers had already kinda let the cat out of the bag earlier in the year; but now the game's official strategy guide blurb makes a note of the "relentless Nazi zombie horde." Boom. Boom. Boom. 'Cited?
Activision's just sent us a press release that's got us screaming like the little PopJustice fanboys we are -- every single mix in DJ Hero 2's roster
Squeeeeee. It looks so good. There's a bit of Tiesto, bit of Guetta, and plenty of GaGa. Hell yes folks. Hit the jump for the full shebang. S'gonna be great. The game's gonna be available in a range of bundles. You'll be able to get a massive Â£150..
Say what you will about Bizarre Creations upcoming Bond product, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, they seem to have all the right elements in place to make a really faithful product
There's shooting, stealth, driving and, as detailed in this trailer, hand-to-hand combat. If they can get all the gameplay elements to mesh well, they could have a really satisfying Bond experience to their name. We..
Bungie's announced that they've started work on a new engine for their next multiplatform project for Activision
Brian Jarrard told Develop that Bungie "don't want to develop a game off someone else's IP" and as such will be constructing their own technology in the same way. According to Jarrard, the engine's already in its early stages: "Yeah, [the new engine is] actually in..
In Japan, you will not see parts of human beings been blown apart in Call Of Duty: Black Ops
That's because the game's been issued a CERO Z rating (think adults rating) with the "brutal or grotesque portrayal" of limbs removed. Boom. That's the end of that. Of course Japanese lurkers, it's worth noting that the PlayStation 3 is region free... You could import it. Yes.
James Bond 007: Blood Stone is going to be out later in the year, and it sounds like quite an exciting package
It's a brand new story; with shooting, stealth and driving and there's multiplayer. According to Bizarre, the multiplayer's designed for 16-players, and is based around team objectives. Hopefully this makes use of Blood Stone's various mechanics (vehicles, stealth, combat). If so, it could..
Activision's announced a November release date for their car-combat title, Blood Drive, and
.. We don't really care. Ok, ok, so it's unlikely to amount to anything amazing without the guidance of David Jaffe, but whatever, we suppose it could be cool. Afterall, there has been a serious lack of car combat games in recent years. Blood Drive sounds a little like an arena version of MegaRace actually..
With the massive Call Of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer blow out last night, you might be forgiven for thinking that Activision's blown their load
They haven't â€” there's plenty more to announce according to developers Treyarch. One such element, is Call Of Duty: Black Ops' co-op mode. While we already know zombies will make an appearance in some manner, community manager Josh Olin was keen to stress..
We can't help but get more and more excited about Call Of Duty: Black Ops
We were one of the first websites to put some serious backing behind Treyarch, and insist that they might actually outdo the good, but over-rated Modern Warfare 2. Going by the details coming out of last night's Black Ops multiplayer reveal, we couldn't feel more comfortable about our prediction. And that's because Treyarch..
If you're Japanese and a fan of shooters, you might want to give Call Of Duty: Black Ops some consideration before you go out and order a copy
Square Enix, the game's publisher in Japan, have committed to two separate SKUs for the title. The first version - which will be available on November 18th - will be a simple sub-titled version of the Western game. The second version, however, won't arrive..
Activision's released an extended version of the James Bond 007: Blood Stone trailer from last week
The new trailer shows Bond driving through the streets of Istanbul and shooting-up some bad guys. The visuals look a bit rough, but truth be told, we have high hopes for this game. Hopefully Bizarre Creations can deliver the goods. They've yet to really disappoint me this generation.
Activision's dropped the bass--erm, the setlist for their upcoming DJ-'em-up sequel, DJ Hero 2
Among the artists features are Basement Jaxx, Chic, Lady GaGa and Timbaland. Naturally we're pretty stoked. This is the only music game we're excited for this Fall (sorry SingStar: Dance) and it looks like it's going to be killer. Get the full list after the jump. And imagine the party you could be having..
There's no Bond movie this year
It feels like there should be. Quantum Of Solace was ages ago, and we're now being told that there won't even be a Bond movie in 2012 due to financial difficulties. Frankly, it makes us sick. We need Bond. So it's with lofty expectation that we wish, pray, demand and hope Bizarre Creations can deliver with their upcoming video game James Bond 007: Blood Stone. This..
In high school we used to have these keyboards with a "Dictionary" mode on them
Nobody really remembers what the button did because we were all too busy pressing it multiple times to notice. Y'see, the button used to have a voice sample attached to it, which made for some fantastic rhythmic manipulation: "D-D-D-D-D-D-Dict-D-Dictionary", we'd go. Good times. We're telling you this story..
Update @ 13:02: Treyarch's just confirmed on Twitter that Black Ops will indeed feature zombie co-op
The four maps included with the Hardened and Prestige editions of Black Ops are throw-backs to the original World At War zombie settings. Original story: Treyarch's been pretty tight-lipped about the return of their popular zombie horde mode in Call...
In the original DJ Hero you played tracks and that was about it really
In DJ Hero 2, that's set to change. Freestyle games are introducing a massive career mode called "Empire", in which you'll pick a brand and location and watch your DJ turn into a super-star as your reputation grows. It sounds like a cool way to flesh out the dry experience of simply playing tracks for stars. We're..
How do you top Modern Warfare 2's insane collector's edition (which featured night vision goggles if you'd forgotten) -- you throw in a remote controlled car of course
Yup, we all saw the detonating cars in the game's multiplayer trailer. Well now you can own one of the little gizmos yourself, as part of Call Of Duty: Black Ops' premium Prestige Edition. The special edition packs set to launch..
Activision's teased the very first look at Call Of Duty: Black Ops' multiplayer component, and it echoes everything we've said about Treyarch's latest attempt at the prestigious shooter franchise -- they're genuinely poised to knock it out of the park with this one
There's tons to pick out of this trailer: exploding crossbow arrows, maps that take...
While pro-snowboarder Shaun White is living it up in Ubisoft's new skateboarding game, pro-skateboarder Tony Hawk is set to hit the ice in the upcoming Tony Hawk: Shred; Robomodo's latest attempt at Activision waning board franchise
Shred, which can be played with last year's ill-fated Ride board, will put players on both skateboards and snowboards. At least visually the cartoony look gives the..
Do you still care? One of you, two of you? Fine, we'll chug along then
We'll cater to your video games news requirements. Activision's announced that the next entry in the Guitar Hero franchise, Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock, will drop on 24th September in the UK (28th September for the US). It's a month ahead of Rock Band 3, which kinda makes sense seeing as how it's going to get crushed by..
Activision's CEO Bobby Kotick (a
k.a.the most hated man in the video game industry) has said that the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops will be getting Â“the biggest investmentÂ” the company has ever made in a game launch. Apparently, the game's pre-order sales alone put it up with Modern Warfare 2. Â“This across the board, the biggest investment that weÂ’ve ever made in a launch of a title,Â” said..
Hidden within Activision's quarterly financial reports is a spot f bad news for fans of the True Crime franchise; UFG's series reboot, True Crime: Hong Kong, has been pushed back into 2011
The game was originally due to release this fall. Activision hopes the delay will "give the development team more time to deliver the high-quality entertainment experience they envision for the game"..
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions -- the upcoming Spidey outing from Activision -- will span four different Spider-Man "universes"
One of the universes is Spider-Man Noir; a darker version of the Spider-Man story in which Uncle Ben is not shot by criminals, but eaten by the Vulture. This little gameplay snippet from the noir sub-section of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions shows ol' Petey Parker..
DJ Hero is a party game
It is strange, therefore, that the original game had nothing in the way of party modes. Thankfully, DJ Hero 2 rectifies that. There are a ton of multiplayer modes being added to the game, the most exciting of which is the "Party Play" mode. This allows players to drop-in and drop-out of the game seamlessly, without ever stopping the music from playing. So you can..
Proving that map packs are just as big business as the games themselves, Activision's announced that as of June 30th the Call Of Duty franchise has pushed 20 million map packs out to consumers
That's a lot of maps. And a lot of money too.
Activision's announced a "ground breaking" deal today that will reward launch-day buyers of Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock with the new Soundgarden record a week early
Those who pick up the game will get a retail version of the band's new album and downloadable content for the game. The album, Telephantasm: A Retrospective, includes plenty of Soundgarden "classics" and one new track. Only..
Activision's confirmed that the Netherland's own DJ maestro, Tiesto, will join the roster of DJ Hero 2
He'll be providing two unique mixes to the game, aswell as his likeness. Presumably the mixes will include plenty of four to the floor kick patterns and gated synths. 'Cos that's what Tiesto does, innit? As much as we like Tiesto, we can't help but feel DJ Hero already played its trump-card with..
Last year Activision announced a collector's edition to end all collector's editions
Night vision goggles came with the $149 SKU of Modern Warfare 2. Looks like they're preparing to do something similar all over again. US retailer buy.com (good name for a website, right?) has listed Hardened and Prestige editions for the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops. It seems impossible that Activision woul
Fancy smoke? Check
Swish silhouettes of men pointing guns? Check. Swish silhouettes of ladies touching themselves? Check. Big, orchestral driven audio backing? Check. Diva reminding us how well she can sing? Check. Jewellery and expensive champagne? Check. Fancy cars power sliding in slow motion? Check. Helicopters blowing up huge diamonds? Check. Yep, this is definitely the start to Bizarre..
We've been searching for a reason to return to Transformers: War For Cybertron's surprisingly good multiplayer component for a few days now
Right on cue, developers High Moon Studios has dropped details on some upcoming DLC for the fan-friendly product. Aswell as adding in War For Cybertron's pre-order exclusive characters - Shockwave, Demolishor...
Yesterday we posted a video which seemed to suggest that Modern Warfare 2 (and presumably the franchise as a whole) was on the verge of getting some kind of subscription fee
But it's not. Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling clarified: Â“For the record, nobody has to pay to play COD or MW2 multiplayer, nor will they.Â” Josh Olin of Treyarch had a similar thing to say regarding Call Of..
Ruh-roh? Do you like Call Of Duty? Chances are you probably do
Well get ready to pay for it, because those rumours about Activision prepping a separate subscription fee for Call Of Duty's multiplayer may have just been turned up a notch. A video (embedded after the jump) posted by a 360Junkies member clearly shows some form of subscription model...
If ever we had a weakness, file it under James Bond games
We were probably the only publication who genuinely loved (and played to death) the last James Bond game, Quantum Of Solace. So good. Perhaps then, our excitement for James Bond 007: Blood Stone should be tempered a little. GoldenEye aside, Bond games aren't traditionally good. But they are Bond games, y'know. There's something to be said..
Would you like to know which artists are participating in DJ Hero 2? Of course you would
There are a whopping 108 musicians/bands/producers taking part. Rather than us sitting here typing a load of waffle, allow us to just pick out some of the listed artists that take our fancy: Basement Jaxx, Chic, Lady GaGa, Metallica, M.I.A., Stevie Wonder, Timbaland. That's just a cross-section. This game's..
Another Call Of Duty game. Fantastic, right? Well, yes, apparently. We didn't think Call Of Duty Black Ops would ever make this list either, but everything we've seen of the game over the past 12-months has truly stunned us. For a while now we've been discussing how the fallout from Infinity Ward might affect the team from Treyarch â€” and their whole attitude with this game strikes..
We liked DJ Hero
We liked DJ Hero a lot actually. We bought it launch day. Launch day! Y'know, when it cost like a bajillion pounds. It had an understandably slow start, debuting at number 20 on the UK charts and managing to shift just 122k units in the US during its launch month. The game had legs though. Probably in thanks to numerous price cuts, DJ Hero has shifted a whopping 1.2million units to..
If you've been clamouring for more Modern Warfare 2 DLC, you'll be pleased to know that Microsoft's timed-exclusivity deal lifts this week -- meaning American gamers will get their hands on Modern Warfare 2's Resurgence pack today when the PlayStation Store updates
Europeans, you'll have to wait until tomorrow. Come on - 24 hours isn't long. You've got time to prestige in that time. Right, right?..
Depending on the retailer you ordered Transformers: War For Cybertron from, you got a bunch of different DLC codes
Soundwave, Jazz and Demolisher were all rewards for pre-ordering the game. Now they're fetching over $100 on eBay. Seriously. A listing ending on Monday scooped a whopping $105 for the Amazon bonus, Demolisher. Crazy. The other codes are netting between $20 and $50. What's hilarious is..
Transformers: War For Cybertron was a really good game
Really good. It proves there's a market for good quality Transformers content that isn't tied into dodgy live-action movies. That doesn't mean every game has to be a shooter however. Speaking at BotCon, High Moon Studio's Matt Tieger and Hasbro's Aaron Archer took part in a little Q&A session with fans. One of the questions asked pointed to..
How big is Modern Warfare 2? The answer is - ridiculously big
Activision's just announced that Infinity Ward's epic shooter has sold an enormous 20million copies to date. Those numbers are across the PlayStation 3, XBOX 360 and PC. That's an enormous number of games folks.
.. We're in heaven â€” DJ Hero 2 has been officially announced and now, via Joystiq, we've got some early details on the game's set-list. Activision's outrageously expensive E3 party - which featured performances from Usher, NERD, Chris Cornell, Tool's Maynard Keenan and Jane's Addiction - also featured plenty of DJ Hero 2, with the lists of artists we've placed after the jump all due to make an..
If you like Call Of Duty (you probably do) and Eminem (you probably do), then you're going to dig Treyarch's new trailer for Call Of Duty: Black Ops, which features a mix of both
The tune's called "Won't Back Down" and it's from Eminem's new record "Recovery". We dig it. Check out more Call Of Duty: Black Ops through here.
Do you know what's totally not a big announcement? Timed exclusive DLC
In fact, it's one of my personal pet-hates in this video game industry. A timed exclusive â€” for DLC. Really? Does that have any factor in purchasing intent. When it comes to Call Of Duty, the answer is, probably, yes. So it was with a wry smile Microsoft announced they have...
Activision wants you to know that they've signed up a range of world-leading music artists for a pile of their upcoming releases, including Call Of Duty: Black Ops, DJ Hero 2, Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock and True Crime
Of all those titles, music by Usher, Eminem, Soundgarden, Pharrell Williams and David Guetta makes sense in two. "ActivisionÂ’s autumn titles are set to give gamers an..
Sounds like Activision's planning the E3 party to end all E3 parties -- with a rumoured $6million event on the cards
Held inside the Staples Centre (actually, y'know, inside it), word is Activision's enlisted the likes of Lady GaGa, Usher, Jane's Addiction, and - according to his Twitter page - Eminem for the LA based event. Madness. VG247 also speculate there will be a skate-ramp with Tony Hawk..
Oooooooh man, DJ Hero 2 is a real product, and it sounds kind of amazing
Like literally sounds amazing. Leaked mixes include a Deadmau5 reimagining of Lady GaGa's "Just Dance" and some remixed Pussycat Dolls. It also looks like Activision are going for more of a party feel with DJ Hero 2, offering karaoke lyrics at the top of the screen. But, as you know, DJ Hero is really all about the..
Activision's unveiled the official website for United Front's upcoming True Crime: Hong Kong
The website reveals a few details about the game's cast, and there's a few new in-game screenshots of the reboot. You can get the goods through here. No doubt Activision will have a thing or two to say about the game at E3.
Activision's announced that Modern Warfare 2's second map-pack will hit the PlayStation Store on July 6th (or July 7th for those of you in Europe)
The pack's been available on the XBOX 360 for a week or so now, but was obviously delayed on the PlayStation 3 due to Microsoft's timed-exclusivity dollars. Still, July 6th is only a few weeks away. The pack will set you back a whopping $15, which will..
A job listing for a senior level designer at Neversoft has revealed that the Guitar Hero studio is working on a new shooter
You want more details? You can't have them because there aren't any. Speculation hints at a long overdue sequel to GuN, but the Call Of Duty name has also been tossed around. Y'know, if Red Dead Redemption hadn't come out last month we'd still be pining for a sequel to last..
This debut trailer for DJ Hero 2 will tell you everything you need to know
The game's designed for c0ol people (not greasy metal-heads), features microphone and dual-deck support... and it also has Lady GaGa in it. That mix sounds kind of rad, yo. We've placed the trailer after the jump courtesy of IGN. We literally cannot wait. <object id="vid_57891"..
If this morning's story wasn't confirmation enough, Activision's just formally announced DJ Hero 2
First details reveal that there will be over 85 artists involved in the game, with a total of 70 mashups included. Artists name-dropped include Lady GaGa, The Chemical Brothers, Dr. Dre Metallica (?) and more. There'll be all new multiplayer modes in the sequel, including a DJ Battle Mode which will..
Sorry, excuse us a moment while we run outside and dance to the hits of Madonna - DJ Hero 2 is finally official
The over-priced (but totally awesome) mix 'em up was overshadowed by a stonking price-tag when it launched last year, but with the peripheral already in a number of homes, we're looking forward to simply picking up DJ Hero 2 on disc. We want more tracks, y'see. And we want a little less..
These are the new guitars set to launch alongside Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock
The new game will feature 90-songs, aswell as some new game modes, and the biggest guitar redesign since the series' inception. As Gizmodo report, the big change here is the repositioning of the guitar's electronic innards into the controller's neck. This allows for a lot of aesthetic changes to be made by the body,..
Call Of Duty: Black Ops' campaign will not be playable in co-op according to Treyarch's Mark Lamia
He explained that "single-player is the epic, cinematic, seat-of-your-pants thrill ride that you star in," while the game will offer seperate, more focused co-op modes for up to four players. It's sounding more like Black Ops' co-op mode will be like Modern Warfare 2's Spec-Ops, but Lamia..
Do you like Hans Zimmer? Do you like music scored to the images of guns, explosions and dead bodies? Then Modern Warfare 2's soundtrack - which has just hit iTunes for $9
99 - may very well be your cup of tea. To be fair, it was a pretty good soundtrack.
Last month saw the release of two hotly anticipated arcade racers
Sadly, too much of a good thing can lead to a difficult choice, but worry not, we're here to help. Marking the first of our Playstation face-offs, we take a look at the pros and cons of Bizarre Creations' Blur and Disney Interactive's Split/Second. Blur on Playstation 3 Review - 4/4 Split/Second on Playstation 3 Review - 2/4 Concept..
This Transformers: War For Cybertron commercial says a lot about the game
Firstly, Soundwave is actually a boom-box. Score one to developers High Moon. Secondly, Starscream is a whiny annoying idiot. Score two to developers High Moon. And finally - the ad features Stan Bush's "The Touch". Score three to developers High Moon. Everytime we hear that song we're transported to a dodgy VHS..
Burnout Paradise predates this website
It was released in January 2008, at a time when I didn't have to play every game that released. I picked it up sometime in September. Being a fan of arcade racers, it still bemuses me that I didn't buy it earlier, and I honestly can't for the life of me recall why. But I didn't - I picked it up late. At the time trophies were new, and Criterion had pledged a..
It's hard to deny the value of a game that can provide excellent single-player, multiplayer and co-operative campaigns
On the whole, the Call Of Duty titles typically manage that Neapolitan of experiences, without particularly shirking quality in any area. The announcement of Call Of Duty: Black Ops' four-player co-operative mode is strengthened by Treyarch's decision to have a full, separate team..
As part of an embargo-lift around the world today, Treyarch's revealed that their upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops title will feature four-player online co-op

Blur and its Mario Kart-rippin' buddies have taken to the Old Street Magistrates Court in London to promote Activision's racers
The game's out today in the UK today. The painting took over 30 hours to complete and was painted by British artist Gary Nolan. If you've yet to see the advert it's immitating, click through here. It's essential.
Well we've been saying it for a while, and it sounds like Treyarch truly believe it -- emerging from the shadows of the Infinity Ward love-affair are Treyarch, a developer who has been nothing but loyal and dignified in their development duties
But perhaps tired of being shoved under the rug by their counter-parts, Treyarch's clearly ready to take the helm, and shout from the rooftops about their..
Blur's a racing game that's taken more than a few cues from Nintendo's Mario Kart franchise -- and mixing them all up in a gigantic blender with a hint of Project Gotham Racing
And that's exactly what the game's commercial states. This is racing for "big boys".
Was that a guy hanging from a crashing helicopter? Did he just jump through a window? Was that an explosive arrow for goodness sake? This debut trailer for Call Of Duty: Black Ops is every inch a winner
We've said many times on this siteÂ (and we're not afraid of saying it again) that we truly believe Treyarch's Call Of Duty: Black Ops will outshine last year's Modern Warfare 2 release from..
We're not going to post too candidly about the second Modern Warfare 2 expansion pack announced today because, well, Microsoft's moneyhat is still in effect and these maps are still some way down the line for PS3 owners

USA Today's dropped some new details on Treyarch's upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops title
According to mixed reports, the SR-71 seen in the game's trailer will be controllable - though the wording is very vague and more recent updates suggest you'll just be giving orders to ground troops, not controlling the plane itself.

Y'know, we've really come around to Blur
At first we were a bit - "meh, Project Gotham mixed with Mario Kart" - but the extra development time seems to have really helped Bizarre Creations' cause. The game looks cool, with a weird blend of styles ranging from sci-fi to street racing. The latest trailer deals with the multiplayer functionality of the game. Which sounds awesome..
