Maroon 5 Frontman Sues Activison

Joining an ever-growing list of musicians in palpable discontentment over Activision's Band Hero, Maroon 5 front Adam Levine has chosen to pursue legal action against industry scapegoat Activision

As has been the case with previous detractors of Band Hero (and its basis, Guitar Hero), Levine is incensed over his in-game avatar's ability to perform songs written and otherwise performed by other..

Latest Call Of Duty: Black Ops DLC Takes Players To The Moon

Activision's got another Call Of Duty: Black Ops map-pack in the works

The latest release — Rezurrection — will release in September on PS3 and will feature five new zombie stages.

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded Was Always Part Of The Plan

We were really surprised to see Activision announce an HD update of GoldenEye for the PlayStation 3 this week, but according to Activision the release was always planned

Producer James Steer revealed to Kotaku that GoldenEye 007: Reloaded was being worked on "in the background" while the Wii version was in development. “This was working in the background the whole time while they were..

Licence to... oh, never mind

After the announcement of GoldenEye 007: Reloaded we've now got the first screenshots and in-game footage from the upcoming Bond-a-thon.

The War Is On: Battlefield 3 Pre-Orders On Par With Black Ops

We don't know if you've heard: there's a war on

EA and Activision each want to dominate the first-person shooter pie, and that means Battlefield 3 and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are preparing for a head-on collision later this year. It's a ballsy move from EA given Call Of Duty's mainstream popularity, but it's a battle that's thus far been fairly evenly matched. Battlefield 3's obviously..

Activision Announces Trio Of Release Dates For Prototype 2, X-Men Destiny & Spider-Man: Edge Of Time

Activision's kicked off Comic-Con with a slew of North American release date announcements

Prototype 2 was the first to get a date, with the distant April 24th, 2012 being the target. Next up was Silicon Knights' X-Men Destiny, a game that, admittedly, we've seen very little of. That game's scored a September 27th release date. Finally, Activision attached an October 4th release date to the..

James Bond Comes to Move with GoldenEye: Reloaded

We've been expecting you

Last year's GoldenEye 007 on Wii was a particularly enjoyable slice of James Bond action, bringing the beloved N64 original up to date with online play, experience and all that good stuff. If you were looking on from the sidelines, filled with jealousy, that can stop soon: Activision has announced GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is...

Activision Officially Announces GoldenEye 007: Reloaded For PlayStation 3

As we suspected when details about the game leaked yesterday, Activision has officially confirmed GoldenEye 007: Reloaded for the PlayStation 3 this afternoon

The title is an HD remake of last year's Wii-exclusive GoldenEye, err, redux. Yeah, we're trying hard to get our heads around that too. See, last year's GoldenEye 007 (for Wii) was a complete reimagining of Rare's original movie block-buster..

News: Do Want: Amazon France Lists GoldenEye Reloaded For PlayStation 3

Do Want: Amazon France Lists GoldenEye Reloaded For PlayStation 3

We love James Bond video games

We've spent countless hours with both Quantum Of Solace and Blood Stone on PS3, despite poor review scores and a general sense of ambivalence towards the games. So we're super excited to learn that last year's Wii exclusive GoldenEye reboot could be coming to the PlayStation 3 in high-definition. The rumours first emerged late last month when a bunch of domain..

GAME: Modern Warfare 3 On Track To Stomp Black Ops' Records

With each iteration of Call Of Duty, the console market grows

There are no shortage of people picking up PlayStation 3s and XBOX 360s, and so it's no surprise to see the Call Of Duty fanbase grow with each release. According to UK retailer GAME, this year's Modern Warfare 3 is set to break the myriad records set by last year's Call Of Duty: Black Ops. "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 pre-orders..

News: Activision's Not Happy With Modern Warfare 3 URL Gaffe

Activision's Not Happy With Modern Warfare 3 URL Gaffe

Remember when we jokingly reported about ModernWarfare3

com</a>? The popular URL was snapped up by a Battlefield fan, and comically redirected to the official Battlefield website. Naturally Activision's not too happy about this. The publisher has filed a $2600 complaint against the domain to the Nation Arbitration Forum, demanding that the name be transferred to them. To add to the drama,..

It's A Slow News Day: Where Does ModernWarfare3.com Direct You To?

Activision's not been keeping on top of its website domains

The URL for ModernWarfare3.com takes you to Battlefield 3's homepage. Given that both titles are currently engaged in a deadly war to the grave, that's pretty funny. The website was registered by an anonymous owner in the US. We suspect it's the work of a long-time Battlefield fan, rather than a sinister EA marketing plan. Hilariously,..

We're Excited: Activision To Debut New James Bond Game At Comic-Con

We never hate James Bond games

While there are good examples of Bond games, and bad examples of Bond games, we usually end up enjoying them regardless of their quality. Perhaps it's because we love the franchise in general, but we've had love affairs with both Quantum Of Solace and Blood Stone already this generation — both of which were panned by critics. So, are we ready for more James Bond?..

The pack, entitled "Annihilation", will launch first on XBOX 360 at the end of the month, and then later on PlayStation 3. It includes four new maps and a new co-operative zombie stage. One of the maps is a golf course, which is pretty awesome. Check out the trailer after the jump.
