Pure and simple
After the enormous success of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure last year, it's no surprise Activision is preparing more outings. The publisher just revealed Skylanders Giants today, and while it's compatible with all the toys from its predecessor it has a few tricks up its sleeve. For starters, the toys aren't just giant in name only:...
Bang for your buck
Microsoft’s irritating exclusivity period is over, and Activision’s taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that Call Of Duty: Elite subscribers will get their first taste of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 DLC before the month is out. As previously announced, the DLC will bundle two multiplayer maps named Liberation and...
RADNET is not some alternative version of the Internet that includes pleasant people
Instead it's the name of Prototype 2's limited edition first run, which includes a bunch of extra content for early adopters. Pre-order the title and you'll scoop up exclusive access to RADNET, which in turn rewards you with 55 pieces of additional content. If it...
Beenox doesn't have the best track-record with Spider-Man games since taking over the franchise a couple of years ago
But there's a real sense that it's had most of its attention on the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie tie-in. For many, Spider-Man 2 on the PlayStation 2 was a watershed moment. The great open-world setting jived well with...
We always used to scoff at people that play nothing other than Call Of Duty all year, but with Activision's new DLC plans, the American publisher is making a legitimate case for sticking to the competitive shooter exclusively in 2012
Earlier in the month, Activision outlined plans to release 20 DLC packs in 2012. It has now revealed the full rundown of what players can expect, namely: ten new maps,..
Uh-oh, watch out Jeff Gerstmann -- it appears there's more Skylanders on the way
Online super sleuth, Fusible, has uncovered a batch of website domains, each pertaining to a product named 'Skylanders Giants'. While the domains weren't registered by publisher Activision themselves, they were handled by a company named MarkMonitor — a group which Fusible notes has dealt with the American publisher..
We can't understand why it's taken Activision so long to put out a high-definition remake of the old Tony Hawk games, but we're sure as heck not going to complain about it now it's here
We're totally ready to get back to racking up some outrageous combos, and subsequently can't wait to get our hands on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD. And the best thing...
Activision knows you keep forgetting about the release of Prototype 2, so it's announced a partnership with comic book label, Dark Horse, to keep the title at the forefront of your mind
The tag-team will see a slew of Prototype themed comics published bi-weekly on Dark Horse's digital store. The first issue — due out on February 15th — will catch up with original Prototype protagonist, Alex..
Mega-publisher Activision may simply be keeping its options open by snatching the website domain for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2, but we think it's pretty safe to assume that the powerhouse is eyeing a sequel to Treyarch's 2010 cold-war adventure
Activision had previously registered domains through to BlackOps6.com, but had come unstuck with the Black Ops 2 domain until now. Originally registered..
It's true that Activision manages to break sales records with each new release of Call Of Duty, but the profits don't end there
The American publisher's consistently posted remarkable DLC sales, and, perhaps as a reflection of that, its post release strategy is set to go into overdrive with Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The publisher's announced that 20 DLC updates will be offered for the popular..
It's hard to believe that a group of executives at Prototype 2 developer, Radical Entertainment, signed off on the game's exclusive GameStop pre-order bonus
Entitled the embarrassingly lame "Butt Kicker", the power upgrade is actually a modified version of the game's explosive human javelin Bio-Bomb ability — allowing you to, ahem, kick foes in the butt really, really hard. It sounds..
We're suckers for James Bond games -- real suckers
How many people do you know that have the platinum trophy in Quantum Of Solace? Yeah, erm, we do. So obviously, we're more than a little excited to learn that the latest issue of movie magazine, Empire, has hinted at the release of a new 007 title to tie-in with the upcoming flick, Skyfall. It's not the first time that we've heard whispers about a..
Speaking on the Call Of Duty: Elite exclusive show, "Roll Call", Infinity Ward community strategist Robert Bowling has announced the first DLC pack for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Due to Microsoft's claw-like grip on the franchise's DLC, we can't give you an exact date for the content's release on PlayStation 3, but we can confirm that it'll drop at some point after January 24th — the DLC's..
Anybody would think it's the season of goodwill or something
Activision's announced a bunch of updates for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, all set to launch ahead of the Holidays. First up is the inclusion of a brand new multiplayer mode found under the Community Playlists heading. Dubbed "Drop Zone", the mode unsurprisingly sees teams working together to capture and hold a... drop zone..
Ready your excuses, because Infinity Ward is starting to get heavy with Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 bans
Those engaging in improper behaviour will be issued with a 5,000 day ban from the multiplayer shooter. That's just under 14 years, and effectively a permaban. What can constitute such a kicking? "Boosting, Cheating, Hacking, Exploiting, Inappropriate behaviour (racial slurs, abusive..
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD sounds like the perfect celebration of the extreme sports games of old
It will feature remastered stages, a mixture of classic characters and more. One thing it probably won't feature is Jerry Was A Race Car Driver and Superman. Activision's Dan Amrich revealed the chilling news on his One Of Swords bl
Activision likes money
Good job it knows how to earn lots and lots of it. The publisher's announced that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has hit the $1 billion milestone just 16 days after release. That's 24 hours quicker than James Cameron's Avatar movie reached the same feat. Engagement of our Call Of Duty audience continues to rise around the world said an understandably chuffed Bobby Kotick..
The announcement of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD may not have been the biggest reveal at the VGAs this weekend, but it was certainly one of the best
We've been desperate for a new "classic" Tony Hawk game for a while, and finally Activision is set to deliver — drawing on a generous helping of nostalgia in the process. In addition to the digital downloadable's collection of classic stages,..
It's the beginning of the end for Cybertron
Activision's released a super-stylish CG trailer for the upcoming Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron, and it shows the robotic home-world on the brink. Despite not showing any gameplay, the trailer's a brilliant mood piece. If developer High Moon Studios can match the vibe of the trailer, then it's going to have a real hit on its hands. We adored..
As promised, Activision and Beenox has debuted the first footage of its upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie tie-in
The trailer's disappointingly light on gameplay, but it does show a few seconds of Spidey swinging around an enormous robotic scorpion thing. Catch the footage after the break.
When Tony Hawk confirmed on Twitter that he was heading (skating?) to this year's VGAs to announce a brand new game, we were secretly cautiously optimistic
We hoped that Activision would see the value in a classic Tony Hawk game after all these years, but after the disastrous Tony Hawk Ride, we weren't ready to place a bet on it. Thankfully,...
Chalk up another exclusive reveal for this weekend's VGAs
Activision's announced that its set to debut an exclusive look at Beenox's upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man at the awards ceremony. It will tie in to the upcoming Sony Pictures movie of the same name, and depict the events directly after the film's conclusion. Most excitingly, the game will feature a free-roaming Spidey in Manhattan. If it's..
Tony Hawk is back
The pro-skater has teased on Twitter that he's set to announce a brand new game at this year's VGAs on Saturday. Said the Hawkster: Ill be announcing the upcoming release of something new on Saturday; the same day as the Spike Video Game Awards. Coincidence? I think not. Oh you tease Tony Hawk. The Tony Hawk series has been on the backburner ever since Robomodo worked on the..
We told you Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 wasn't going anywhere
The Activision published shooter has held its place at the top of the UK sales charts for four weeks now — and we doubt it's planning on relinquishing that spot anytime soon. With few new releases, FIFA 12 climbed into second, while Assassin's Creed: Revelations moved into third. Saints Row: The Third maintained its position in..
High Moon's released a brand new teaser trailer for its upcoming War For Cybertron follow-up, Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron
The game's set to get a full reveal at next week's VGAs. The trailer, while desperately light on content, should get you in the mood. It shows various Transformers characters — including Grimlock — staring moodily at the camera and kicking ass. "Me Grimlock no care..
When Activision first announced Call Of Duty: Elite we thought: people won't want this
Turns out our first impressions were damn wrong, as Activision has just announced that its "premium" Call Of Duty experience has scooped up a whopping one million subscribers in just six days. Unsurprisingly, Bobby Kotick was stoked: "The audience...
Blizzard's made its ambitions to put Diablo III on consoles clear already, but in an interview with Game Informer, director Jay Wilson has explained that the company wants to go one step further than simply porting the title
We dont want to port it, he said, We want to build it for console. Theres a key difference. Certainly, a lot of things get brought over, but a port is trying to take..
You shouldn't be surprised to see Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 at the top of the UK charts for a second week
The record breaking Activision shooter beat off strong new competition from Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Revelations and THQ's Saints Row: The Third — both of which debuted in second and fourth respectively. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim dropped to third, while FIFA 12 finished up in fifth..
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 cheaters beware: Infinity Ward's announced it has started laying the ban hammer on offending players
Community strategist Robert Bowling said on Twitter that "attempts to cheat" will not be tolerated, and he implored legitimate players to report any instances of foul-play they spot online. We appreciate Infinity Ward taking such a hard-line. Cheating is not..
It really hasn't been a great start for Activision's Call Of Duty stat-tracking service, Elite
After higher than anticipated demand, the service has been sporadic at best for the past couple of weeks. But finally there's light at the end of the tunnel. In an interview with G4, Activision's VP of production, Daniel Suarez, said that the publisher aims to get everything working as intended by..
How big is Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? Well, according to Activision the game earned a whopping $775 million globally in just five days, smashing a number of entertainment records in the process
The numbers put a bullet in previous record holder Call Of Duty: Black Ops, which managed "just" $650 million over the same period. Furthermore, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 enjoyed the..
A game designer on Call Of Duty: Black Ops has admitted to "f***ing up" with regards to the game's Second Chance perk
Teyarch's David Vonderhaar Tweeted earlier today, "See that gun to my head in my pic? That's how I feel about Second Chance. We meant well. I f***ed up." The Second Chance perk allows players to absorb fatal damage and then use a pistol for ten seconds before dying, with a..
The only real surprise to this week's UK sales charts is that despite its $400 million opening, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 did not manage to outsell its predecessor's first week
In fact, according to Chart Track, sales were down by 1.5 percent on Black Ops. Someone get on the blower to Bobby Kotick quick. Thankfully, revenue was up by 1.6 percent. Ridiculously, Modern Warfare 3 moved "just..
As well as announcing Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's record breaking sales figures, Activision has also confirmed today that it has donated $3 million to the Call Of Duty Endowment which supports American serviceman and women
The charity helps to provide job placements and training for former veterans. Call it a publicity stunt if you like, but this is clearly a great gesture from a publisher..
Activision's announced that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has once again smashed all sales records, selling 6
5 million units in just 24 hours across the US and UK. Staggering when you consider that those numbers only represent two nations. The figures are up 900,000 units from Call Of Duty: Black Ops. It also did a million more units than Battlefield 3 managed over five days. Incredibly, Modern..
Despite a rocky launch, Activision has told Kotaku that it is working hard behind the scenes to cope with the enormous demand for its subscription service, Call Of Duty: Elite
We are being challenged by a response beyond any of our expectations on day one, but were making good headway, Activisions Jamie Berger said. This is like that terrible birthing pains any new online service goes..
Just to point out how successful the Call Of Duty franchise is, Activision publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg has revealed that previous release, Call Of Duty: Black Ops, has pushed out 20 million map packs to date
That's 20 million. "For the first nine months of the year, Black Ops has remained the number one title in the U.S. and Europe, generating more revenue than any new major console..
Activision has confirmed that there will be a new Call Of Duty released next year
Ready the indifference folks, you've got another 12 months to pretend you're not interested in the blockbuster series. Admittedly we can appreciate some of the cynicism. It does feel like Call Of Duty's in need of an overhaul — but it's hard to argue that the series is still brilliant at what it does. The..
As expected Activision and Beachhead Studios' stat-tracking service for Call Of Duty, Elite, is having a few issues meeting demand, with registration requests exceeding the firm's "most optimistic expectations"
According to an official blog post by Beachhead boss Chacko Sonny, We have already registered hundreds of thousands of players and we are working around the clock to increase our capacity..
Last year, Call Of Duty: Black Ops set the video game market on fire when it sold a whopping five million copies in just 24 hours
We always thought Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 would have a difficult job matching those kind of numbers, but Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia believes it will be a breeze. "We expect MW3 to grow 10% versus last years Call of Duty: Black Ops, which has sold..
Well, it's here
After an agonisingly long build-up, fierce competitors Battlefield 3 and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are finally sitting alongside each other on store shelves. And that means the reviews are rolling in too. It's all looking rather rosy for Activision's latest, with the dilapidated Infinity Ward pushing out a product worthy of an average review score of 88 . Just for comparison's..
It might feel like Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's flying under the radar a teensy bit, but believe it or not this is just the calm before the storm
British retailer GAME has weighed in on the importance of the release, declaring it the most pre-ordered game in the retailer's history. "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the most popular game for pre-orders that GAME and Gamestation have ever..
If you're not venturing out into the cold this evening to pick up your own copy of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 -- then you might want to sit and watch other people doing exactly that
Activision has announced that it is to stream the UK launch party for Modern Warfare 3 live on YouTube. But wait, there's more: the event will be hosted by XBOX Live's community manager Graeme 'AceyBongos' Boyd, TV..
Don your khaki kecks and prepare for all out warfare -- Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is hours away
In order to up the ante, Activision's released a live action trailer starring Jonah Hill, Sam Worthington and Dwight Howard. Certainly got us in the mood for shooting dudes. Catch the video after the jump.
A duo of masked French hoodlums have reportedly hijacked a delivery truck in Créteil, France containing 6,000 copies of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Local source TFI reports that the truck collided with a car, and when its drivers exited the vehicle, they were teargassed by masked figures before the vehicle was stolen — thousands of copies of Activision's latest first-person shooter with it..
We're days away from the next Call Of Duty
And honestly, it feels a little bit calm. But perhaps that's because we're so caught up in the enthusiast bubble — we're sure someone, somewhere is currently having sleepless nights over Modern Warfare 3. And if Michael Pachter's got anything to say on the matter, lots of people are having sleepless nights. He told IndustryGamers that he reckons the..
Last year's GoldenEye 007 on Wii just got a whole lot slicker, as GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is out today in North America. The HD revamp supports PlayStation Move and the Sharp Shooter as well as standard controllers, and includes brand new MI:6 missions as well as the Wii version's acclaimed multiplayer. We'll don our tuxedos and prepare...
With Battlefield 3 already on store shelves, attention has turned to Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
While its single-player experience is pretty much guaranteed to be a mouth-watering roller-coaster ride, many are keen to see what's changed on the multiplayer side. Headline features include two new modes called Kill Confirmed and Team Defender. These take existing multiplayer hallmarks and spin..
Bond goes boom
James Bond's third appearance on PlayStation 3 is less than 24 hours away in North America: GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is ready to grab PlayStation Move by the tuxedo lapels and make a witty remark. To celebrate the suave spy's first motion-controlled outing on PS3, Activision has created this rather nice launch trailer below that hits...
Yes, a new Bond game
It's curious that Activision's decided to release GoldenEye 007: Reloaded so close to Modern Warfare 3, but we're not going to complain. We're always pumped for more 007, and subsequently can't wait to get our hands on this revamped version of last year's Nintendo Wii reboot. It's GoldenEye. What's not to be pumped about? The game's out next week.
Every year, Activision somehow manages to add another reason to keep you levelling up your character in Call Of Duty
One of this year's biggest hooks in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is Weapon Proficiencies, which essentially allows you to collect and earn "mini-perks" for your weapons. Proficiencies allow you to improve your performance with small incentives, such as reduced kick or..
GoldenEye 007 Reloaded is out on PS3 next week
And as regular readers will know, we couldn't be more excited. Part of our excitement stems from nostalgia; GoldenEye is one of our favourite games of all time. With the original game being so fondly remembered, we can only imagine there must be a curious atmosphere at developer Eurocom. A kind of pressure, if you will. "We talk about the original..
Forget every big boxing bout of the past 50 years
The head-to-head between Battlefield 3 and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 this Christmas is the only one that matters. And the competition is so fierce that not even the Paris Games Week can pick a winner. The best shooter award was, well, a tie. Seriously. Both Battlefield 3 and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 took home the gong. Elsewhere, Sony..
Seasoned video games analyst Michael Pachter has pulled out his crystal ball for the months ahead, predicting that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will sell twice as many copies as its rival Battlefield 3 during the fourth quarter of 2011
Chatting with Forbes, Pachter predicted that Modern Warfare 3 will sell about 16 million units during the fourth quarter of 2011, with Battlefield scooping up a..
Well that didn't take long, did it? Just a day after EA dropped the launch trailer for Battlefield 3, Activision's followed up with a jaw-dropping minute of footage from Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Both trailers feel like statements of intent from their respective publishers. It's nice to hear the dulcet tones of Captain Price again. We're also rather taken with Modern Warfare 3's World War III,..
At its core, Call Of Duty's multiplayer is all about competition
So it's important that Activision's subscription based stat-tracking component, Call Of Duty: Elite, should hone in the competitive nature of the series. In a new behind-the-scenes video, developer Beachhead Studios discusses the various ways players will duke it out for glory, with bragging rights and prizes lavished on the winners..
A new video for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has detailed the game's most dramatic shake-up: Strike Packages
These come in three different flavours: Assault, Support and Specialist. Assault essentially entails Call Of Duty's vanilla offensive killstreaks, while Support includes goodies like UAVs and turrets. Finally, Specialist features no killstreaks, but unlocks additional perks with each two..
In the last GoldenEye 007: Reloaded gameplay trailer, developer Eurocom opted to showcase the game's stealth features
But just because you can play the game in stealth, doesn't mean you have to. Bond's been involved in some pretty crazy fire-fights over the years, and that's definitely the focus of this latest walkthrough. The gun-play looks fast and fluid — though the guns do appear to lack..
Once upon a time Sledgehammer Games was working on a third-person, action adventure iteration in the Call Of Duty series
But shortly thereafter Infinity Ward went kaput, and the Glen Schofield fronted studio was dragged into Modern Warfare 3 development duties. The rest is history, and it means we'll probably never see Sledgehammer's third-person Call Of Duty title completed. Well probably..
Sledgehammer Games' gaffer Glen Schofield has hit back at critics complaining that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's graphics engine is nothing but a cut and paste job
Chatting candidly with CVG, Schofield told fans to expect a "huge difference" in Modern Warfare 3's visual quality when compared to its predecessor, Modern Warfare 2. "I'll tell you one thing. I've worked on a lot of..
One thing's clear about Activision and Radical Entertainment's upcoming open-world superhero adventure -- it loves slow-motion
The latest trailer for Prototype 2 shows the gravel-voiced protagonist out in pursuit of the previous game's hero, Alex Mercer. And being a Prototype game, there's some pretty gross-out gore along the way.
As previously rumoured, Beenox has confirmed it is already hard at work on a movie tie-in game for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie reboot
The game was announced at the New York Comic Con in front of hordes of excited fans. Drawing the biggest cheer was developer Beenox's admission that the game will return to Spidey's open-world routes. Exactly like the uber-popular Spider-Man 2 game on..
The Transformers universe always tends to bring out the best sound designers
This teaser trailer for High Moon Studios' upcoming War For Cybertron sequel, Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron, is no different. Sure it might not include many details about the actual game — but boy does it use some brilliant mechanical sound effects.
Spider-Man: Edge Of Time is barely cold on store shelves
But already speculation is high about Spider-Man developer, Beenox's next project. According to sneaky photographs snapped by IGN at the NYCC, that project is a tie-in to next year's Sony Pictures' Spider-Man reboot. A poster snapped at the convention clearly shows The Amazing Spider-Man with Beenox and Activision logos plastered beneath..
Activision's confirmed it's working on a new Men In Black game, set for release on "consoles and handhelds" -- presumably PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita
The game's due out next year and is being developed by Romanian studio Fun Labs. It's designed to tie-in with the movie Men In Black 3, which is also due out next year. Activision explained that the game features "action packed yet..
Gunning for you
The other day we brought you a stealth video for GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, but let's face it, we all want a bit of multiplayer GoldenEye action on PlayStation Move. That's exactly what the trailer below delivers. There's also a spate of new screenshots available in our gallery showing everything from cheater's favourite Oddjob to the...
What two things go together better than peanut butter and jelly, bangers and mash or other foods? Hunting animals and party games, of course. That's the theme of Cabela's Adventure Camp, a new party game from Activision that puts you and your family outdoors and makes it fun. The trailer below shows all sorts of activities, from...
There's something a little big exciting about a game / toy hybrid isn't there? And Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is ridiculously ambitious in that regard
Activision's launch trailer sums the whole thing up, complete with irritating voice actors and try-hard punchlines. But even though the tone of the game doesn't particularly appeal to us, we think the idea of collectable action figures that..
We honestly couldn't be more excited for GoldenEye 007: Reloaded
Even a lousy hands-on hasn't managed to put us off. And this multiplayer trailer has turned our hype levels right back up to 'eleven' once again. Four-player split-screen is back, but it's the new 16-player multiplayer that we're hyped for. Guys, GoldenEye. Heck yes.
Activision's playing on some real nostalgia with GoldenEye 007: Reloaded isn't it? One of the game's North American pre-order bonuses -- available from GameStop -- brings the original's legendary Paintball mode to split-screen and private online multiplayer matches
Remember Paintball mode? If that wasn't enough, GameStop's also handing out "early access" to the Classic Conflict gametype..
We're just two weeks away from GoldenEye 007: Reloaded's release on PlayStation 3, and a new video released by Activision wants to put you firmly in the espionage mood. The new "stealth" trailer below is exactly what it says on the tin, impressing on players the importance of taking things slowly instead of running in all guns...
Sledgehammer Games' gaffer -- and former Dead Space top-man -- Glen Schofield has dismissed any rivalry between Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3, insisting his competition lies with Modern Warfare 2
For those unclear, Sledgehammer Games is working alongside the depleted Infinity Ward to prepare Modern Warfare 3 for release this Holiday. EA's been pretty vocal about its intentions..
It's bizarre to think that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been flying under the radar this year
The latest entry in the most popular franchise in the world has lost some mind-share amongst hardcore gamers to Battlefield 3. But we've always felt like Modern Warfare 3's had the better showings up until now — the E3 demo involving scuba divers, boat chases and helicopter rides was a real..
After a breif hiatus working on the not-entirely-awful Transformers: Dark Of The Moon movie tie-in, High Moon Studios is back with a brand new original entry in the Transformers series
Announced in the latest issue of Game Informer magazine, Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron continues the story of the ongoing civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. Details are scarce, but one thing is..
Get it out of your system: we know the "hardcore" gamer can't stand Call Of Duty anymore
How dare mainstream video game players enjoy a video game, right? You good? Good. To be honest, we get the criticisms. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 does look agonisingly like more of the same. And that's a shame. But while the "new" Spec Ops Survival mode is clearly derived from Black Ops' zombie..
Strike one to Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Nielsen's published its "top twenty" Chistmas video games wishlist, with Modern Warfare 3 the most coveted by 5,000 active North American gamers. Modern Warfare 3 was on the list of 27% of participants, while Battlefield 3 was on the list of just 12%. PlayStation 3 exclusives Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and Resistance 3 both charted, but the..
Looking to get a head-start on your pursuit of Prestige in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? Then you'll probably want to do your pre-ordering from GAME or GameStation in the UK
The retailer's promoting a Classified Intel Pack that comes with all pre-orders of the game, and awards players with four hours worth of double XP. The pack also includes a mini-guide and a PS3 exclusive theme.
Better than Space Camp?
When the name Cabela's comes to mind, what's the first thought that crosses you mind? For us it sparks thoughts things like: Big Game Hunting, Dangerous Hunts, arctic survival and even merchandise stores packed to the brim with hunting and fishing apparel too. But, a sports compilations mix that features PlaySta
Something to get your teeth into
It's double-Cabela's-news-day here at Movemodo: first we find out that Cabela's Survival: Shadows of Katmai is coming to Move, now we have a launch trailer for Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2012. It never rains but it pours. The Move-enabled animal-shooter launches across North America on this very day, so it's the...
Last year’s Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011 release was one of the more surprising PlayStation Move titles. We never would’ve guessed that the game would have offered a deep storyline and survival horror styled gameplay, but that’s exactly what we got. Top it off with a smart PlayStation Move integration that functioned better...
For or against? That's the question X-Men Destiny's launch trailer ponders
Backed by the dulcet tones of Nolan North himself (Nathan Drake to everybody else), this trailer's filled with punching, sorcery and big explosions. Watch it after the jump.
Social networking attachments to popular games -- like Call Of Duty: Elite -- will be a "necessity" in the future, according to Activision's Jamie Berger
"We believe that a 24/7, year-round services strategy that broadens the game experience beyond just playing is going to be a necessity," he told MCV. "Right now, it's an option, but in three to five years, it won't be. To support..
After naming GoldenEye 007: Reloaded as one of our most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of the year, we couldn't help but feel disappointed by our time with the game's demo
It felt early. Really early. Borderline broken in fact. After restarting our demo — because a bit of geometry was obtruding our entry into a vent — we decided to restart the game from the beginning. The Dam always was our..
Just a quick heads-up, Activision's confirmed the release of Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Rezurrection DLC pack on PlayStation 3
You can grab it from the PlayStation Store right now. The DLC includes four re-mastered Call Of Duty: World At War maps, in addition to one brand new encounter set on the Moon. (Really.) Activision's celebrating with Double XP...
What's your favourite stage from GoldenEye 64? The Dam? The Library? The Cradle? Nah, for us it's always been the Facility
So it's fascinating to see just how developer Eurocom has re-imagined the classic level for PS3 title GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. You can catch the stage being played in stealth after the jump. Looks like remarkably good fun. Hit the jump for footage and commentary.
Former Guitar Hero developer, Neversoft, has started work on a new first-person shooter for Activision
Gamerzines cites a recruitment page on the developer's website seeking multiplayer level designers and network programmers for a new 'AAA' first-person shooter. Neversoft previously worked on the flawed but decent GUN on PS2.
Includes other exclusives as well
We previously reported that the once Wii exclusive GoldenEye 007 is coming to PS3 with PlayStation Move support, but new details have been scarce since the game's initial announcement. TGS 2011 put this news lull to an end and we’ve got exciting news that GoldenEye 007: Reloaded will be releasing in North America...
Infinity Ward creative strategist, Robert Bowling, has confirmed on Twitter that there won't be an over-the-top Prestige Edition released for Modern Warfare 3
The game will instead settle for a $99.99 Hardened Edition, priced some $20 steeper than previous versions. The Hardened Edition includes a 12-month subscription to Call Of Duty: Elite, so it's not necessarily a bad deal. We would have..
Those of you wanting to get your hands on a full set of PlayStation Move kit alongside Activision and Eurocom's upcoming GoldenEye 007: Reloaded will need to get your hands on the 'Double 0 Edition'
Detailed earlier this afternoon, Activision also announced a couple of bits of exclusive content for the PS3 title.</em>
A triple-header of GoldenEye 007: Reloaded news this evening
Activision's announced that the title will launch on November 1st in North America. The game will be promoted under a brand new 'Double 0' package Sony's cooked up, featuring a copy of the game, a PlayStation Move and Navigation controller combo, PlayStation Eye camera and SharpShooter peripheral. No price as yet. The PlayStation 3..
One of the few downsides of writing about PlayStation games day-in-day-out is that we rarely get time to experience the content on other platforms
While we keep up to date with the release schedule and details of competitive platforms, we never really get the time to play them any more. When your work includes knowing everything there is to know about a specific platform/brand, you have to commit..
You might not believe it, but Call Of Duty does surpringly well in Japan
