Activision's confirmed during a consumer call tonight that there will be new iterations Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, Tony Hawk and Spiderman by the time 2010 is done and finished
The Call Of Duty title in development is believed to be set in Vietnam, and is being developed by Activision's secondary CoD team Treyarch. Robomodo confirmed they are...

Gah, it feels like every week we're posting about another Modern Warfare 2 patch that fixes some glitch or other
Take the latest patch, which fixes the following: Care Package, Emergency Airdrop, and Sentry Gun marker grenades sprint speed normalized Fix for "infinite care package" exploit Sentry Guns: Improved placement detection, preventing cases of Sentry Guns inside geometry Model..
Someone grab that little dude with the funny suit from Braid because I'm about to take you on a trip through time
Rewind the clocks back to November 2006 when Sony released the Playstation 3 upon the world. It was met with feverish anticipation and was considered the second, err, third coming of the great Playstation home console series. All was good with the world. That is, until it was decided by..
Microsoft announced at E3 that they'd given Activision lots of money secured "exclusive first looks" at the upcoming Modern Warfare 2 DLC, but until today the exact context of that statement had not been revealed
However, Eurogamer are reporting today that Modern Warfare 2 DLC will receive a period of timed-exclusivity on the XBOX 360, for 30 days...
Probably one of the most hated figures in the video game industry, smug money maker Bobby Kotick has admitted to Game Informer (via Destructoid) that, yep, Activision's Spider-Man games have kinda sucked
Our Spider-Man games have sucked for the last five years, Kotick claimed. They are bad games. They were poorly rated because they were bad games. We went away from what is Spider-Man..
Maybe next time, we'll drop the clue
But our little game still won't be much fun, yo. It's too obvious. At this stage we're starting to believe that even when something huge, like, say, Final Fantasy XIII or God Of War III launches; Modern Warfare 2 will still be sitting atop the British sales charts. It'll probably still be there in 2011. By which time we'll have run out of funny comments to write..
Blimey oh riley
Here's not news you expect to report on everyday. According to reports from Destructoid, Infinity Ward are hiring staff to develop an MMO. The company are apparently sniping employees from Sony Online Entertainment and Blizzard to help out on the game, including EverQuest II's Ryan Barker. Destructoid reckon the MMO will run...
Treyarch's next foray into the Call Of Duty franchise - widely rumoured to be set in Vietnam - is due for release in November, ahead of the "gifting season" according to CVG
Their source - a "senior UK trade rep" - said Activision had told them to expect the game in the same window as Modern Warfare 2.Activision believes that it can own Christmas again, just as it has in the last two..
Top DJ David Guetta [and the mastermind behind tons of amazing French house - Ed] has hinted he's working on a follow-up to DJ Hero
In an interview with Kelowna, Guetta said, I think its amazing, this game [DJ Hero], and Im going to work on the No. 2 version. Its a really crazy game, he said.After ten minutes, you get the rush that a DJ gets after ten years of practising. I have fun..
Snore-phewwww. Snore-phewwww. Mumble. Mutter. Modern Warfare 2 is still top of the UK sales charts. Mutter. Mumble. Snore-phewwww. Snore-phewwww. Snore-phewwww. Mumble. Mutter.

So the True Crime games have been of questionable quality in the past, but after seeing the name United Front Games (the people behind Sony's Modnation Racers) and a well paced trailer we're ready to believe: this reboot set in China could be awesome
See what we mean after the jump. <object id="gtembed" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"..
Quick update , Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has just Tweeted that the 15mb Modern Warfare 2 update is available now
As we posted yesterday, the update fixes the Javelin glitch alongside some other exploits. Quite a few people wrote in yesterday saying they'd stopped playing MW2 until this stuff got fixed. You can jump back in now eh, guys?
Infinity Ward are finally readying a patch to fix Modern Warfare 2's much-famed Javelin glitch
The glitch, which makes people go really fast and be all explosive, is already in certification according to Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling. Aswell as the Javelin glitch, patch 1.06 will also fix the infinite care package exploit, aswell as stopping players from glitching the scenery (i.e. hiding inside..
If you've been sitting, waiting, deliberating over whether to pick up another DJ Hero controller - now you totally can
Available via the Guitar Hero Store, dropping $70 will earn you a standalone deck for local multiplayer action. Obviously this is still ridiculously expensive, but hey, the game's a lot of fun so we can't blame you for taking the plunge.
If you, like some of those on my PSN friends list, have already put in 40 hours into Modern Warfare 2, you might be getting a bit hacked off with seeing the same maps
We were after just 7 hours, but that's moot. Point is, you want DLC, right? Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling just Tweeted that it's coming - in "Spring". And that ladies and gentlemen, is that.
Modern Warfare 2 was (and still continues to be) a big deal
It smashed loads of sales records in, like, 24 hours and will probably remain one of the most played Playstation games until 2010. So, it's inevitable to think that DLC for one of the most popular games of year could spin a whole pile of cash. That's absolutel
Ever wondered what prototypes for peripherals look like? Well, there's actually a reason companies don't release them - as this Tony Hawk: Ride prototype is a testament to the "unfinished product"
The board, taped together with duct tape and featuring arcade buttons looks like something out of a horror movie.
If you fancy getting your groove on to a series of new DJ Hero tracks, look no further than the David Guetta track pack which is available on the US Playstation Store right now for just $7
99. The pack includes: "When Love Takes Over" featuring Kelly Rowland, "Sexy Chick" featuring Akon, and "On The Dancefloor" featuring will.i.am and apl.de.ap. <span>Klaxon..
It doesn't matter that DJ Hero was a flop because Activision are now wiping their bottom with cash
Why? Mainly because Modern Warfare 2 managed to earn the company a whopping $550million in five days. Apparently it trumps a number of huge entertainment launches such as The Dark Knight and Harry Potter.
Well, let's be honest, it was absolutely inevitable that some Russians were going to get upset over that scene in Modern Warfare 2
We'd tell you all about it, but we don't want to spoil things for folks who haven't played the game yet. Chances are, if you have played the game, you know what we're talking about. According to a Hellforge translation, a censored console version of Modern Warfare 2..
Remember Ghost from Modern Warfare 2? Yeah, he sounded a lot like Gaz
That's because the character probably was Gaz. But speculation aside, the voice actor for both characters - Craig Fairbrass - has blurted out some interesting tid-bits regarding the nature of a potential spin-off title starring the masked military dude.I did in the last game a voice for a character called Gaz and in this game..
Hilariously, in an interview with MCV, Activision's Guitar Hero brand CEO Dan Rosensweig has confirmed that there are already future iterations of DJ Hero, Guitar Hero and Band Hero in the works
Thankfully, those games aside, there will be fewer SKUs in the "Hero" franchise next year all together. Hopefully this means an end to "Guitar Hero: Generic Rock Band No-One Cares..
The campaign might be a teensy bit contrived, but there's absolutely no doubt that Modern Warfare 2 is absolutely the best multiplayer game available on Playstation 3 right now
It's the subtle tweaks that make Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer a rip-roaring success. This is not evolution, it's iteration. And it's iteration at its very best. Modern...
The video game executive that every gamer loves to hate - Activision's Bobby Kotick - has made a cool $20million after selling 2million shares in the firm this week
The outrageous profit comes after shrewd business from Bobby on the week of Modern Warfare 2's launch. Is it possible to hate this man any more?
Activision have announced that Modern Warfare 2 managed to muster up sales in the 4
7million region in just North America and the UK alone. We're going to assume that's a lot of money and stuff. And now, we're not going to post anything else about Modern Warfare 2's sales until at least next week. Because we're bored of it. We get it. It sold lots.
Analyst Ben Schachter wants to talk numbers
Big numbers in fact, in relation to Modern Warfare 2. He wants to talk a whopping 7million — which he reckons is just how many copies Modern Warfare 2 sold on day-one worldwide. We already know of the 1.23 million sold in the UK, so those worldwide estimates certainly don't seem far off the boil. If that's correct, Modern Warfare 2 would have doubled..
Infinity Ward have finally managed to fix Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer issues, meaning anyone wanting to jump online and shoot some folks can now once again do so
It appears the problem was down to overwhelming demand raping Infinity Ward's servers. Reassuringly though, Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling Tweeted that the company...
So we guess patch number three is on the way then? Since yesterday's launch of Modern Warfare 2 we've already had two patches; today's released to fix the trophy unlocks
Sadly, while we can confirm patch 1.02 has fixed trophies, it's totally borked the online multiplayer which, well, doesn't work at all. Hopefully Infinity Ward can turn out a patch...
As expected, Modern Warfare 2's launch was a major deal in the UK
The game sold a whopping 1.23 million units in its first 24 hours or so; absolutely crushing Grand Theft Auto IV's 631,000 units. The Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association described the launch as "interactive entertainment come of age." Apparently, Infinity Ward's shooter grossed £47million in first..
Modern Warfare 2 is barely 24 hours old and it's already been patched twice
We suppose that shows some hefty commitment from Activision and Infinity Ward to make the game's launch as smooth as possible. The patch apparently fixes trophy unlock issues that were affecting some users on launch day. The slightly broken party system will be fixed by...
Today is November 10th
That's the day that Modern Warfare 2 officially lands on store shelves. Chances are there's no one around to read this. Fact is, we aren't actually around to write it. This is being written on Sunday 8th November to inform you that, today (today being the Tuesday November 10th) we are playing Modern Warfare 2. And no, we don't intend to update the website. We intend to shoot..
Well, obviously not right now, this isn't a magic photograph
It is still a recent photograph from tonight's Modern Warfare 2 launch event in London's Leicester Square however. We'd be there, seeing the sights and brushing shoulders with the Zoo models but, y'know, we're in Birmingham. Sorry folks.
Perhaps you're offended by the game's subject matter? Maybe you hate Bobby Kotick with a vengeance? Or perhaps you just don't have the cash -- for whatever reason, Kotaku has compiled the complete strategy guide for the bitter Modern Warfare 2 boycotter
May we add one thing to Kotaku's list? Those of you boycotting because of the game's hype levels: sit quietly in a darkened room and think about..
Modern Warfare 2 is getting its own premiere in London's Leicester Square tonight
No, we're not making it up. It's really happening. Apparently there's going to be a load of famous people and "top DJs" and a secret gig and stuff. Some guy off Big Brother Series 3 will probably be there or something. We don't know. It's hard to remember that this is just a video game right now. It honestly..
Modern Warfare 2 isn't even out yet
If you didn't know, it's out tomorrow. But hey, lots of people already have the game. So will their multiplayer stats be reset so that everyone is on an even playing field come launch tomorrow? Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling says no. <span>Any players who purchased a legit retail copy will not be reset or banned. Only modded / pirate..
Both the Guardian and Telegraph have gone live with their Modern Warfare 2 reviews ahead of embargo (which PushSquare believes to be this evening), both outlets scoring the hyped-beyond-life-itself shooter perfect scores
The Guardian describe it as the most "polished, intelligent FPS" of the year. The Telegraph have also heaped the praise on Infinity Ward's creation claiming, "It may..
Activision have trademarked the name Drum Hero over the Hallowe'en weekend, suggesting a game devoted to, erm, drumming is on the way
Woohoo! Chances are the inevitable Drum Hero will support singing and guitar playing too, so will end up exactly the same as recent Guitar Hero games with a different name on the box. Excuse our cynicism of Activision's products - there's a chance the game might be..
Take that shocked look off your faces, people
We know it's extremely hard to believe but, yo, guess what - Activision are planning more Call Of Duty and Guitar Hero games for next year. The company that are never afraid to saturate the market stated in their Q3 financial report last week that we will see more Guitar Hero and Call Of Duty within the year. What next - Guitar Hero: Limp Bizkit with..
As anticipation mounts for the biggest game release of the year, American retailer GameStop have seemingly crumpled under the pressure, selling copies of Modern Warfare 2 ahead of its street date in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio
Hey if you live near by though, it's worth a crack right? We mean, you won't specifically be doing anything wrong.
Infinity Ward have released the last Modern Warfare 2 trailer before the game's launch next week
And it's an absolute show stopper. Highlighting some of the game's biggest set-pieces (while hopefully keeping a few under wraps), we're sure the trailer showcases someone in space at one point. Which then brings us onto our major Modern Warfare 2 concern. When the nuclear bomb went off in Call Of Duty..
Oh no, the whole Kurt Cobain thing is back again
No Doubt are suing Activision over their appearance in Band Hero, claiming they have been turned into a "circus act" after their likenesses are available for use in the game's full 60 track line-up. According to No Doubt, their likeness was only supposed to be used in the game's three No Doubt tracks. Blimey Activision. The one-off thing..
Analysts like to talk about sales a lot
Heck, it's their job. A job that pays Colin Sebastian of Lazard Capital Markets to tell Gamasutra that DJ Hero's sales are "modest". Given the UK figures, we wouldn't be surprised to hear that. Top marks Colin — your profession continues to state the bloomin' obvious. Sebastian goes on to claim that consumers are "showing price..
We don't know if you heard but, hey, Modern Warfare 2 is going to be a big, big, big deal
So big in fact, Activision were willing to plough Infinity Ward with a "ridiculous" budget to develop the game.Early on when we decided to make a sequel Activision estimated out a ridiculous budget. And we were like: No, we dont need that, Infinity Ward's community manager Robert..
So, Infinity Ward have really gone mad with the multiplayer killstreaks in Modern Warfare 2
The latest leak to come out of Infinity Ward is the 25-kill streak reward: a nuke.
If you've got DJ Hero already, you might be tempted by some new DLC which is, well, available today
Be warned though, just like the main game, the DLC is rather pricey. At $5.99 you'll get two mixes - "All Of Me" by 50 Cent featuring Mary J. Blige vs. "Radio Ga Ga" by Queen, and "DARE" by Gorillaz vs. "Can't Truss It" Performed by Public Enemy - under the..
Gotta be honest, we weren't entirely sure whether those third-person Modern Warfare 2 claims yesterday were real
But alas, Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has come out and said, yo, it's totally fact, Modern Warfare 2 has multiplayer modes."It's not something you can toggle on and off in ANY game," said Bowling. The mode can apparently be turned on and off in private matches or be played..
As far as we're concerned, DJ Hero is the second coming of Christ
Ok, not quite, excuse our blasphemy. Just, look: the game appeals to us on so many levels, and we're sure that we're not the only ones. In the office, we're less likely to have the ol' rock music blasting from our stereo, and more disco, dance, house, r&b, pop and hip-hop. Sure, we're not going to say there's not great rock music..
Earlier today we posted a leaked video supposedly from Modern Warfare 2 displaying a third-person game type
A screenshot of Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer playlists seems to confirm the existence of a SOCOM-like mode, with "3rd Person Team Deathmatch" and "3rd Person Cage Match" both showing up on the lists. There's still no word from Infinity Ward, so continue to treat as..
Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling hinted at a "big secret" reveal for Modern Warfare 2 recently
That secret may have just been leaked, as footage of Modern Warfare 2 running from a third-person perspective has hit Youtube. A French gamer claims to have picked up an early copy of Modern Warfare 2 and spotted a third-person gameplay mode. Treat as rumour for now.
This screenshot, part of a full set you can view over at Kotaku, confirms that Modern Warfare 2 will be more than just a romp around brown landscapes
Alas, here we see the bright blue depths of the ocean, as British troops scuba-dive in clean looking water. By the way, have you folks heard those rumours that the game's first mission will take place in space? Crazy. Not long until we find out for..
Activision are throwing the gauntlet in terms of big midnight launch parties this year, with a massive Modern Warfare 2 bash in Leicester Square, London
The party will take place on the night before the game's launch, November 10th, with the screens of the nearby ODEON steaming footage from Infinity Ward's shooter, aswell as HMV honouring a midnight launch. Eurogamer are reporting there's also..
Hey Taylor Swift
We want to write really sexy things about you here but we're prohibited by your age. Even if you are only 15 months younger than us, we still feel uncomfortable. So instead we're going to talk about the new game you're in, Band Hero. And its track list. Which is probably going to make the Guitar Hero faithful cry themselves to sleep; but it actually looks a lot better to us than..
News just in that the BBFC have rated Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 an 18
It goes one rating further than the already rather brutal Call Of Duty: World At War, and is perhaps an indication that Infinity Ward's trademark "in your face" moments will return in Modern Warfare 2. It's actually..
Modern Warfare 2 totally does have co-op, it's just not quite in the same vein as what many expect
It'll be enjoyable in short two-player chunks, rather than full-on romps through the single-player campaign. Robert Bowling told VG247 that the reason full co-op for the single-player experience wasn't included was because it "really broke the cinematic experience, took the immersion out of it,..
And for once we find ourselves agreeing with Activision
We couldn't give two flying hoots about Guitar Hero here in the PushSquare office because we don't like 92% of the music they pump out for that platform. DJ Hero on the other hand, has us absolutely stoked because we do like that music. So, Activision's brand manager Ian McCellan was totally talking sense when he told MCV, "With the kind..
The intro to Activision's upcoming DJ Hero's is a real mixed bag
Yes, the choice of Justice as the game's introductory track really sums up the game no end - and for that has us chomping at the bit to get our hands on it - but the footage involving crazy monsters, exploding trucks and giant vinyl record players really did nothing for us. Still, at least the music's good, right?
We still can't believe Guitar Hero 5 sold better than the fantastic The Beatles: Rock Band
It literally blows our mind. But thankfully Activision's Guitar Hero business CEO Dan Rosensweig is on hand to explain exactly what happened:"The number one thing about Guitar Hero is that it's fun as hell — it's focused on the guitar, and the variety and value proposition — and the reviews are..
Just a bit more on Modern Warfare 2
This is a new video to emerge out of a recent multiplayer event that Infinity Ward held. The footage depicts the use of the sniper and shows some lobbies and stuff. Not very interesting for the casual Modern Warfare fan we must admit, but new footage will delight those itching for the game.
"[Activision] wanted to be World War II
Again," reveal Infinity Ward of their block-buster title Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2. In an interview with Official Playstation Magazine - UK, Infinity Ward's head-honcho Vince Zampella has revealed how publisher Activision held them back from releasing a modern combat game for years.<span>"With Call of Duty 2, we were dead set against it..
The full DJ Hero tracklisting is out
And as you know, we're super excited for the game. SUPER EXCITED. Bear with us while we do a little jig to the tune of Stayin' Alive... Boo yeah. There are 93 songs in DJ Hero with DLC to follow. We've highlighted the most amazing tracks for prominence. Word. Hit the jump. The complete DJ Hero set list: 2Pac - "All Eyez On Me" vs. The Aranbee Pop..
DJ Hero has been officially dated for Europe
It's coming October 30th. Hooray. Needless to say after a love-hate affair with the game, the PushSquare offices have decided to love and currently have a big countdown on the wall counting down to DJ Hero's release (we don't really have a big countdown - Ed). Yes it's expensive, but it has Daft Punk among other tracks we deem to be enjoyable. Which is..
As promised, there's a new Modern Warfare 2 trailer
"Infamy" tries to pull at your heart strings. The question of morality underscored by readings from the Bible; ironic for a game all about shooting folk. We guess that's kinda the idea. Either that, or we're missing something. Still, we don't think Modern Warfare 2 is a game that trailers well. After all, the first game was totally all..
So, according to USA Today, Activision will be showing a new trailer for Modern Warfare 2 in between the San Diego Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers game on Sunday
Any Americans who've dropped by this site and feel like kicking us in the face due to our "handegg" joke in the title, please chill — we're simply Brits trying to be comical (and almost certainly failing). Those who are way..
We love our LittleBigPlanet dynamic theme
But we feel like it's time we had a change. Sadly there's not much else available on the Playstation Store. Thankfully Infinity Ward are on the case, with "some [Modern Warfare 2] dynamic themes in the works for the PS3 XMB". We imagine a series of Modern Warfare 2 themes would fair rather well on the Playstation Store. And with Activision behind..
Tony Hawk Ride will still hit the US on November 17th as planned
Here in the UK though, change of plan. It's been put back by two weeks to the 4th December. We suppose this sucks if you're really excited for the game but, alas, at least you have an extra two weeks to save up for more plastic peripherals. Right?!
How can you know when a game is hyped through the roof? When it gets its own energy drink of course
Like these specially branded cans of Modern Warfare 2 Monster Drink. The cans come with tons of download codes for special Modern Warfare 2 themed goodies including: 1,000 copies of the Modern Warfare 2 Hardened Edition; 5,000 map pack codes for a pack planned for a spring 2010 release; 10.000 Modern..
Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling has confirmed via the wonders of Twitter that there are no plans for a pre-launch demo
Hence, if you're still totally on the fence regarding whether Modern Warfare 2 is the game for you — you're out of luck. Still, seeing as a quarter of the population will own the game by Christmas, you could always pop around to a friends house and try out their..
Bizarre Creations' weapons-based shooter, Blur, will not make its planned November release date
Like most of the other games this Holiday, it's been delayed. According to Activision CEO Mike Griffith, this is a strategic move to "fully optimize the vision set out to create for Blur including a distinctive and groundbreaking multiplayer mode that will appeal to a broad audience". We..
British retailer GAME will exclusively retail yet another bundle of Modern Warfare 2; this time £119
99 Veteran Edition. The set includes the hardened edition of the game, which comes with an artbook, a digital code to download Call of Duty Classic, and a SteelBook case, as well as a unique gift box and a Captain Soap MacTavish ultra-premium 12 inch Cliffhanger statue. We hope this is the end of..
We'll admit that "Money" has an excellent opening and bassline
We'll even go as far as saying that the cover for Dark Side Of The Moon is pretty iconic. What you'll never hear us say is that we like Pink Floyd. Because we don't. We've heard your stories about listening to the record on an old record machine while stoned up to the eye-balls and, quite frankly, we don't want to hear them again..
With Microsoft putting their collective energy into marking the release of Modern Warfare 2 with a complete XBOX 360 bundle, Sony are remaining tight-lipped on whether they intend to do something similar for the Playstation 3
With Sony expected to keep the current 120GB PS3 Slim bundle-less for the forseeable future, rumours are mounting of a holiday 250GB console with games bundled. Speaking with..
Behold, some off-cam footage of Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer mode
About three seconds into the above GamesTrailers video we concluded; "yep, this is Modern Warfare 2". Having not played the game ourselves yet (boo-hoo) we can't offer any concrete views on how similar the game feels to play but, dude, this looks like Modern Warfare...
Bobby Kotick's back
Remember when he said he wanted to boycott the Playstation 3? Hell, it looks as though his long-term goal is to boycott all systems full-stop. As part of a 45-minute presentation at the Deutsche Bank Securities Technology Conference in San Francisco Kotick detailed plans to release an "untethered" version of his companies stagnating Guitar Hero franchise."I think..
We've been up and down with DJ Hero
We love the mixes and the attempt at doing something a little different but we really hate the price. Alas, we've finally decided that DJ Hero is going to be the best thing since sliced bread, thanks to the inclusion (and input) of one of our favourite acts of all time — Daft Punk. The duo will be contributing 11 unique mixes to the game. Bloody sold. Check out..
We're already feeling the difference here at PushSquare
Games are coming thick and fast now. While many have been delayed, there are still plenty of excellent games due for release in Q4, 09. We take a look at our five most anticipated. 5. Eye Pet (Playstation 3) We're sure Eye Pet is the last title people would expect to see on our most anticipated list, but the innovative virtual pet essentially..
Boy are we bombarded with great racing games lately
With Split/Second on the horizon, the excellent DiRT 2 now off our review schedule and Gran Turismo 5 rumoured, what space will there be for the Blur? Given the developer's pedigree, probably quite a lot, after all, this is Bizarre Creations' latest franchise. And from the trailer we get the impression it's going to be a lot like Mario Kart..
Modern Warfare 2 continues to amaze us in a totally unexcited kinda way
Allow us to explain. So good was Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare we're kind of cruising along claiming in static, dull voices, "yep, sequel's going to be absolutely amazing". We're not understating what is coming, genuinely Modern Warfare 2 looks set to be one of the - if not the - best games of the year. But when..
Rocksteady's masterpiece Batman Arkham Asylum may go on to be many people's game of the year, but it all counts for nothing if it doesn't sell
Thankfully the title has topped the UK charts, offsetting Nintendo's Wii Sports Resort and resting a comfortable victor. The XBOX 360 version narrowly outsold the PS3 (with a 55% share) — we assume the exclusive Joker content on the PS3 version of the game..
Here is an advert for Guitar Hero 5
It features Playboy bunnies and the frankly disgusting Hugh Hefner. We just don't understand the point they're trying to make here. Buy Guitar Hero 5 and you turn into a gyrating sex goddess? What? Terrible.
Well, this is a big one
There were rumours last night that Hans Zimmer — the award winning composer for films such as Gladiator, The Pirates Of The Caribean and As Good As It Gets — will be contributing to the Modern Warfare 2 soundtrack. That has now been confirmed by Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling. We can't wait to see what Zimmer comes up with. Hopefully he can generate a..
Activision don't exist in Japan, but they have talked about making Modern Warfare 2 the "best selling game of all time"
They'll probably need to throw Japan into the mix in order to make it that. Cue this teaser site from Square Enix, headed with a similar looking "2" to that in the Modern Warfare 2 logo. Are we on the same wavelength?
For your viewing pleasure is a minute of Modern Warfare 2's single player campaign, shot at the GameCrazy company convention
The footage has been taken via a video camera so it's not the best, but it depicts a few soldiers hurling through a busy street. The most exciting thing we noticed was the way civilians come running, screaming down the street with you. Very engaging. We're starting to get..
MadCatz are gearing up to release a surge of officially branded Modern Warfare 2 accessories
The products include an "Action Controller" for the Playstation 3, a wireless controller that allows custom button mapping for "superior" control (apparently). The XBOX 360 counterpart will not be wireless so it looks like us PS3 gamers are getting the better end of the deal. There are..
Your friendly-neighbourhood Infinity Ward blogger, FourZeroTwo, has confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 will have dual wielding
Hooray?"I was presenting a singleplayer mission at the GameCrazy show this morning on stage and happened to walk over a body that had Akimbo (dual wield side arm), therefore the icon for the weapon popped up on screen and the room went crazy with chants demanding I pick..
Despite approximately 92
463% (not an actual scientific calculation - ed) of expected Holiday 09 games being delayed, Assassin's Creed II is sticking to its guns. The game will launch on November 17th, that's just one week after the juggernaut that's had every other game's publisher running scared - Modern Warfare 2. Producer Patrice Desilets was surprisingly buoyant about the release date of..
August 27th will see the addition of the real Transformers character models to movie tie-in release Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen
The DLC includes eight new playable characters based on the original Generation 1 Transformer designs. It also includes three new character skins, three multiplayer maps and an "Expert" difficulty setting...
Tony Bartel, the head honcho of American retailer GameStop's marketing department, reckons Modern Warfare 2 could become the best selling game of all time
Ever. In order to achieve that it would have to sell somewhere around 11 million copies, a feat currently held by Wii Play, Nintendo's - admittedly terrible - mini-game collection that sold because it came with a Wii Remote. Call Of Duty 4:..
We don't know what it is about Tony Hawk Ride but, we just don't get it
Sure it looks like standing on the board is probably quite intuitive for movement, but we can't see how hand-plants could ever work, seeing as how you should be virtually upside down. How can they ever naturally replicate that? Still, this host of pro-skaters seem way into it. We remain sceptical.
So the Nazis have unlocked some kind of time warp into another world allowing them to become super-charged super warriors
Thankfully one American dude can save the day with a bunch of one-liners and presumably an arsenal of weapons. If it wasn't so utterly predictable and devoid of anything, we'd probably say this is an alright concept for a game. We'll give it the benefit of the doubt. Maybe.
.. If their game sells more than Madden 10 based on the NPDs. Knowing there is little to no chance in hell of such a thing ever occuring in this world, we think Manveer Heir's cash is safe. The software designer Tweeted the contest stating the stipulations that the offer only applies to sales in August and that you're limited to one copy per person. Haha.
