If you’ve always thought Spider-Man would be a much better franchise with an elderly gentleman in the lead role rather than an anxious, sprightly youth, then the pre-order bonuses for Activision’s upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man should be right up your alley. Register your interest in the game at Amazon and you’ll snatch up the...
Those of you still actively engaged in the art of shooting soldiers in the face will be pleased to learn that Activision is readying another Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 content drop for Elite subscribers on PS3 this week. The update will see the Sanctuary and Foundation maps added to the game. The former takes place in a monastery...
Open the Griffin door once more
Fox's incredibly popular Family Guy series is getting another bite of the gaming apple this year with Activision's Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse. Currently only announced for 'consoles' — which you can bet means PS3 — it's set for release this autumn, though that's about all we know aside from the usual...
You know, we really respect Tony Hawk. The skating legend could so easily be a disinterested shill, but we really get the impression that he cares about the quality of his games. Such is his passion, that the Hawkster's prone to revealing the odd snippet of unannounced information from time to time. On this occasion he’s taken to Twitter...
Here’s a story that might catch you off guard: Activision is readying a Family Guy title for release on PlayStation 3 later this year. Well, that’s according to a retail listing for a game called Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse which mysteriously appeared on Amazon overnight. The listing is agonisingly light on details, but does...
Huge numbers incoming
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is poised to become another blockbuster of epic proportions, if early indications from online retailer Amazon are to be believed. A report on MCV notes that early orders for the upcoming title are already triple those of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops which released in 2010. Amazon’s Graham...
The hunt for brains continues
The recently announced Call of Duty: Black Ops II may be taking a slightly different direction to its predecessor, but Treyarch’s trademark zombie co-op mode will still be present. It sounds like the developer is really aiming to flesh out the side campaign, describing it as the “most ambitious zombie effort...
Dying is a part of life
Call of Duty: Black Ops II wants to surprise you. For one, the campaign will offer branching paths and alternate endings, with the storyline changing depending on decisions you make. Should you fail select missions the story will still continue, with characters living or dying depending on your actions. While we're not...
Not sure which "version" yet
It’s been a long time since we got any kind of update about Call of Duty on Vita. Despite the title being announced alongside Sony’s new handheld, Activision’s said very little about the potential blockbuster. But in an off-the-cuff Twitter remark overnight, social media manager Dan Amrich hinted at the title’s...
Activision's just confirmed Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for PS3 will hit worldwide on 13th November. The date accompanied a reveal trailer — published perhaps a little prematurely — that we'll bring to you as soon as it's up. It's so far only announced for PS3 but we know Call of Duty Vita is still on the way. Are you keen to take up...
Attack of the drones
A couple of screenshots from the heavily rumoured Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 have leaked online. The assets appear to confirm a near future setting for the hotly anticipated sequel. The images — which first appeared on a Japanese website — focus on gun-toting aerial recon units, which also featured in leaked art assets posted...
Plug the holes
It's not particularly surprising to learn that Activision is readying a direct sequel to 2010's pretty good Call of Duty: Black Ops. The title has been heavily rumoured for months now, but was finally confirmed overnight via a sneaky photograph of a Target pre-order token posted on IGN. The card clearly shows the game’s logo, in...
It’s time to plot your pursuit of prestige all over again, as Activision readies the announcement of another Call of Duty title. As previously speculated, all will be revealed on 1st May. A countdown on CallofDuty.com notes that the title will be showcased during the basketball playoffs on US cable channel TNT. Seems like an appropriate...
Patience is a virtue
PlayStation 3 players without Call of Duty: Elite subscriptions can finally indulge in the first DLC drop for Modern Warfare 3. The drearily dubbed “Content Collection #1” is available now from the PlayStation Store for an eye-watering $14.99. To its credit the content does collate six new multiplayer maps and a pair of Spec...
"Me Grimlock no bozo. Me king!"
Grimlock might not be known for his brainpower, but the Dinobot commander is well regarded for his strength in battle – a trait which the upcoming Transformers: Fall of Cybertron appears to capture quite well. This brand new trailer shows off the dim-witted warrior in action, demonstrating his range of melee attacks...
Shaken, not stirred
As James Bond’s 50th anniversary nears, Activision has announced plans to celebrate the suave spy’s illustrious history with 007 Legends this Fall. The title — which is in development at GoldenEye 007: Reloaded studio Eurocom — aims to pull together missions from six classic Bond movies and fuse them into an “original...
Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk pitched the idea of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD years ago, but publisher Activision turned the concept down. In an interview with IGN, the trickster revealed that the publisher felt it “wasn’t the right time” for an HD remake. It’s obviously changed its tune a lot since, with the classic...
Series on a slippery slope
Call of Duty isn't quite the infallible mega franchise it’s made out to be. Don’t worry, the series is still selling a ridiculous number of copies with each new iteration – but it appears its success has peaked. That’s according to analyst firm Macquire Equities, who believe that sales for the most recent outing...
Black Ops 2 in the works
It’s about time major publishers learned: video game sleuths are really good at what they do. The latest accidental reveal comes courtesy of a group of Call of Duty fans, who decided it was time Activision told us a little something about 2012’s inevitable entry in the massively popular series. They found the image...
Impressive... For primitive technology
Transformers fans are a tough bunch to please, but we doubt anyone could be disappointed with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron’s latest footage. The anticipated sequel is looking prettier than Arcee stripped down to her core components, and that’s evidenced once again by this brand new behind-the-scenes...
One shall stand, one shall fall
Shape-shifting vehicles and dim-witted robotic dinosaurs return to PlayStation 3 in August with the release of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. The High Moon Studios developed sequel is due out on 28th August in North America and 31st August in Europe. Check out the trailer below for a hearty helping of dubstep and...
Four zero two
Robert Bowling has announced that he has resigned from his current position as creative strategist of Call of Duty. The hype-man – who has become the face of the biggest gaming brand in the world over the past few years – announced his departure on Twitter overnight. He said: Today, I resign from my position as Creative Strategist...
Two games in one
If you thought making a movie based on a board game was weird, then spend a moment to consider the thoughts of those responsible for the video game tie-in. To their credit, the employees of Double Helix Games come across as genuinely passionate in this behind the scenes video for Battleship. And, to be fair, the game’s concept...
Moving through Manhattan
Activision’s upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie tie-in will feature full PlayStation Move compatibility, developer Beenox has confirmed. Our friends over at iWaggle3D got suspicious when a boxart for the game uploaded to Amazon included a “PlayStation Move Compatible” bubble. This prompted Jonathon Grendon, PR...
Paving the path to prestige
There are physics degrees that are easier to understand than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s DLC release schedule. Activision’s somehow managed to lock the DLC behind so many exclusivity windows that we’ve given up trying to understand it all. First there’s the XBOX 360 window, then there’s the Call of Duty...
Nothing to do with that Deftones song
Activision’s released a handful of new screenshots for the upcoming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD. The shots show a number of favourite levels from the original PlayStation Tony Hawk titles, including our personal favourite, the School. We’ve been craving some old-school Tony Hawk action for years, so we...
89-year-old comic book god Stan Lee is to cameo as a playable character in Beenox’s upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie tie-in. The Spider-Man creator confirmed the news himself during an awkward interview with Addict of Fiction at the London Super Comic Convention. Exactly how Lee will be integrated remains to be seen, but...
Spanish retailer Fnac has attached a November release date to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 – despite it not being formally announced by publisher Activision yet. This is the second European retailer to acknowledge the game, with Amazon’s French division causing a similar furore earlier in the year. Activision still hasn't commented on the...
Love it or hate it, Call of Duty is the biggest gaming brand in the world right now. So naturally all eyes are on Activision’s already announced entry in the FPS blockbuster series for PS Vita. But when can we expect to get our hands on the title? “In the autumn,” according to Sony’s senior vice president of brand marketing, Guy...
State the obvious
In a move that will almost certainly surprise no one, a listing for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has supposedly been spotted on Amazon France. Local website, GameBlog.fr, captured a screenshot of the listing before it was swiftly removed, a development which has prompted something of a fallout between the site and Activision’s...
Spider-Man 2 is by far one of our favourite PlayStation 2 games. The open-world action title was phenomenally well polished compared to the production values of most other movie tie-ins, and so we’re hoping that Activision and Beenox’s upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man reboot can match up to the quality of its licensed predecessor. It...
Taking it to the rooftop
Skip past this trailer’s lousy attempt at humour and you’ll be rewarded with a first look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s latest DLC map. Dubbed Overwatch, the stage takes place in a construction site atop a New York skyscraper – which even the cynics have to admit sounds pretty neat. We’d love to give you a...
We must go deeper
On the back of yesterday’s announcement, Activision’s offered a sneak peek at Double Helix’s upcoming Battleship movie tie-in. The game – which is based on the movie of the, erm, board game – promises to combine fist-pumping first-person action with traditional seek-and-find gameplay. This whole thing strikes us as...
You sunk my Battleship
It’s news to us, but apparently Milton Bradley’s classic guessing game, Battleship, is to be transformed into a blockbuster movie. Weird, right? Unsurprisingly, Activision has a video game tie-in planned. Silent Hill: Homecoming developer, Double Helix, has been dumped on development duties, and is promising to combine aspects of the board game with first-person shooter..
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..
