Transformers: War For Cybertron Gets The Sequel Treatment

There will be a new entry in the Transformers: War For Cybertron story-arc in 2012

The first War For Cybertron launched earlier this year and was well received due to its reverence for the original Transformers plot and characters. It was also pretty fun to play, but it did have some difficulty and technical issues. Nothing a sequel can't fix though. Transformers will get a movie tie-in before the..

Activision's Thomas Tippl has told an audience at an industry conference in New York that 2011 will bring the company's "largest digital offering ever" in the form of Call Of Duty DLC

Sledgehammer's Call Of Duty To Take Place In Space...

.. Because they've got to top that stupid Modern Warfare 2 plot somehow! Call Of Duty: Black Ops has hardly had time to settle on store shelves but already Gamasutra's running a rumour that suggests Sledgehammer will take the CoD franchise into space next year. Sledgehammer have been pretty public about their work with the Call Of Duty franchise, with gaffer Glen Schofield (of Dead Space fame)..

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.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Price-War Begins In The UK

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..

This Live Action Call Of Duty: Black Ops Commercial Is Either Amazing Or Terrible

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..

Activision Confirms New Transformers, X-Men & Hero Titles Are On The Way Next Year

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..

Fancy Grabbing Call Of Duty: Black Ops For 7.99?

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 £7.99 when you trade in EA's Medal Of Honor. Considering Black Ops' RRP is a whopping £54.99, that's quite a..

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Gets Censored In Japan

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

James Bond 007: Blood Stone Gets Launch Trailer, Still Looks Exciting To Us

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..

Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Launch Trailer Is Actually 101% AMAZING

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 — certainly as we knew them — are gone, and it looks like it's time for Treyarch to take their place as the premium Call..
