Yes We've Seen The Call Of Duty: Black Ops Server Reports, And No It's Not Going To Happen

We woke up this morning to see a bunch of websites reporting that Activision were about to "pull the plug on the PS3 Call Of Duty: Black Ops servers

" We don't know how the story gathered steam, but we'd just like to reassure everyone that it's not going to happen. While Activision reserve the right to pull the servers on any multiplayer game, Call Of Duty: Black Ops is still a relatively new..

Feign Excitement: Call Of Duty: Black Ops Is The UK's Best Selling Game Of 2010

Surprise!

We nearly called it and then we were like, nah, too crazy. Who'd have thought Call Of Duty: Black Ops would become the UK's best selling game of 2010? Our money was on the Nintendo Wii's Just Dance. We were close. That came in second.  But blimey. Black Ops — crazy that. Gran Turismo 5 fared pretty well, coming third on the PlayStation 3 chart, while Red Dead Redemption and FIFA 11..

Well Of Course There's Going To Be A Call Of Duty Subscription Model

NPD: Call Of Duty: Black Ops Shifts A Not-Too-Shabby 3.1 Million Units On PlayStation 3

In many ways, the Call Of Duty franchise is an XBOX 360 exclusive

It's a "modern" exclusive if you like. Back in the day, exclusivity meant "absolutely not coming out on any other platforms". That kind of exclusive still exists in some cases, but the numbers are diminishing. That's especially accurate when it comes to third parties, where exclusivity tends to mean "a bit of..

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..
