Sony's launched a massive DLC sale to get you ready for the weekend
The deals — which are available from the PSN right now — feature a long list of savings for titles such as Modern Warfare 2, Assassin's Creed II, Super Street Fighter IV and Grand Theft Auto IV amongst others. Apparently, Sony will be publishing more deals on June 29th, but this...
We've all heard the horror stories regarding Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer recently
Those still playing Activision's shooter online have found themselves susceptible to stat-hacks and various gameplay exploits. Seems like Infinity Ward's on the verge of regaining control though, with community manager Robert Bowling teasing the release of an imminent fix. Good on Infinity Ward. The studio's..
Remember Ghost from Modern Warfare 2? He was the mask toting guy voiced by the same actor as Gaz in Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
According to rumours published by ThisIsXBOX [we know! - Ed], the face-less gunner could be about to become the star of his own game. The site notes that Infinity Ward are working on a Ghost themed Call Of Duty title set before the events of Call Of Duty 4: Modern..
FIFA 11's jumped straight to the top of the UK sales charts this week, achieving the third biggest video game launch in UK history
The title overthrew its predecessor to take the crown, falling just short of records set by Modern Warfare 2 and Grand Theft Auto IV. Unit sales are up 21 percent over the previous title, with revenue up 36 percent...
Disney Interactive's Toy Story 3 is still top of the UK sales charts
That's despite a surge of interest in Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption, which jumped back into second position from fifth. Elsewhere, there's plenty of life-style toff for the Nintendo platforms (what the heck is Art Academy!?) and the usual first-person shooter suspects in Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The full..
Disney Interactive's surprisingly brilliant Toy Story 3 has topped the British sales charts this week, holding off a surge of interest in Activision's Modern Warfare 2 which finished up second
Elsewhere, dance titles are clearly the "in" thing, as both Just Dance and Dance On Broadway make up two slots in the top ten. Sigh, imagine when Dance Central comes out. TOY STORY 3 CALL OF DUTY:..
Proving that map packs are just as big business as the games themselves, Activision's announced that as of June 30th the Call Of Duty franchise has pushed 20 million map packs out to consumers
That's a lot of maps. And a lot of money too.
Yesterday we posted a video which seemed to suggest that Modern Warfare 2 (and presumably the franchise as a whole) was on the verge of getting some kind of subscription fee
But it's not. Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling clarified: For the record, nobody has to pay to play COD or MW2 multiplayer, nor will they. Josh Olin of Treyarch had a similar thing to say regarding Call Of..
Ruh-roh? Do you like Call Of Duty? Chances are you probably do
Well get ready to pay for it, because those rumours about Activision prepping a separate subscription fee for Call Of Duty's multiplayer may have just been turned up a notch. A video (embedded after the jump) posted by a 360Junkies member clearly shows some form of subscription model...
I just don't get it
As a reviewer, I can see the positives and negatives in every game I play. But on a personal level, I just don't get multiplayer shooters. I'm talking about the games that have Team Deathmatch as the default game-mode — your Modern Warfare 2s, Medal Of Honors and even Uncharted 2s. I've always questioned whether I truly have...
If you've been clamouring for more Modern Warfare 2 DLC, you'll be pleased to know that Microsoft's timed-exclusivity deal lifts this week -- meaning American gamers will get their hands on Modern Warfare 2's Resurgence pack today when the PlayStation Store updates
Europeans, you'll have to wait until tomorrow. Come on - 24 hours isn't long. You've got time to prestige in that time. Right, right?..
How big is Modern Warfare 2? The answer is - ridiculously big
Activision's just announced that Infinity Ward's epic shooter has sold an enormous 20million copies to date. Those numbers are across the PlayStation 3, XBOX 360 and PC. That's an enormous number of games folks.
Red Dead Redemption's held onto its spot aloft the UK sales charts, despite the release of Nintendo's Super Mario Galaxy 2
The plumber instead had to settle for the number two spot, while FIFA World Cup 2010 held onto its place in the top three, finishing in third. Elsewhere, it's pretty much as you were with appearances from Modern Warfare 2 and UFC Undisputed 2010. The full top-twenty is after..
Activision's announced that Modern Warfare 2's second map-pack will hit the PlayStation Store on July 6th (or July 7th for those of you in Europe)
The pack's been available on the XBOX 360 for a week or so now, but was obviously delayed on the PlayStation 3 due to Microsoft's timed-exclusivity dollars. Still, July 6th is only a few weeks away. The pack will set you back a whopping $15, which will..
Do you like Hans Zimmer? Do you like music scored to the images of guns, explosions and dead bodies? Then Modern Warfare 2's soundtrack - which has just hit iTunes for $9
99 - may very well be your cup of tea. To be fair, it was a pretty good soundtrack.
We're not going to post too candidly about the second Modern Warfare 2 expansion pack announced today because, well, Microsoft's moneyhat is still in effect and these maps are still some way down the line for PS3 owners
Still, we thought it was worth noting that one of the new maps is set among a fun fair. Cool.</em>
At an Activision investor call yesterday, the company's CEO Bobby Kotick confirmed that the Call Of Duty franchise has delivered over 17 million map packs
And those figures don't even include the numbers for the Modern Warfare 2 map pack which launched on the Playstation Network this week. The businessman was talking about the multi-pronged strategy...
American Modern Warfare 2 players - Microsoft's "exclusivity" window is now up, and you're totally going to be able to play Modern Warfare 2's Stimulus map pack today
You can check out a rundown of the new locales over on the Playstation Blog if you're curious. It's also worth noting that Infinity Ward will be running double XP all this week, so you...
Here's some incentive for those of you still working hard at Infinity Ward crafting Modern Warfare 2's next over-priced DLC pack: Janco Partners analyst Mike Hickey reckons the studio will be closed when the content's finished up
What with all the legal drama and defections going down at the once market leading studio, Hickey reckons the studio will eventually be absorbed into Activision and that..
We've gone a little quiet on the whole Activion, Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment drama
There's not much to tell really. The once high-profile studio has suffered a pretty enormous exodus, and Activision blogger Dan Amrich reckons there's more to come. Posting on a Bobby Kotick Facebook group (ahem), the Activision man stated there was still plenty of talent at the studio, despite many..
How exactly do you broaden the audience of one of the biggest selling games in video game history? No idea, but Activision's COO Thomas Tippi [really? - Ed] seems to think newly formed studio Sledgehammer Games' Call Of Duty project will do just that
Speaking with the LA Times, Tippi said Sledgehammer's take will bring "innovation" to the series. Tippi was also keen to stress that..
If you've not been keeping up with the whole Activision vs
ex-Infinity Ward men debacle, you probably wouldn't know that Jason West and Vince Zampella - ex-gaffers at Modern Warfare 2 studio Infinity Ward - were fired by the company's parent Activision and later reacted by issuing legal action against the company. Well Activision's just released a counter-complaint against the ex-employees,..
Microsoft's "exclusivity" in regards to Modern Warfare 2's "Stimulus Map Pack" has turned out to be incredibly brief, as publishers Activision has just announced that the DLC's due on Playstation 3 mere weeks after its XBOX 360 debut - on May 4th in the US and May 5th worldwide
That's according to Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling anyway, who made the...
This week's UK sales chart has to be the most generic list in a long time
You've got Ubisoft's Wii Just Dance dacing game at the top, with last weeks leader Just Cause 2 in the runner-up spot. You've then got Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2. Then Pokemon. Then Wii Sports. Then Pokemon. Then Fifa. The Wii Fit. Then Super Mario. It's about as predictable as the sun going down this..
That "pun" has been run into the ground and stomped on so many times we really shouldn't have used it
But that's exactly why we did use it. Ha-hah. Incredible. Anyway - without further ado, here's your British sales charts news: Just Cause 2 is number one with a bullet. Or should we say grapple hook? Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2 are still lingering the top ten, with God Of War..
Guess what? It's the BAFTAs tomorrow night
And that means all the glamorous folks involved in putting together the games you loved last year will be heading to the red-carpet to (hopefully) collect a copious number of gongs. We've teamed up with VoucherCodes.co.uk to bring you our definitive list of predictions ahead of tomorrow's big event...
We're shaking our heads here
Bemused. Look, we know Modern Warfare 2's a good game. We said as much in our review. But really, it's not that good. It's a shooter, you have guns, they fire. Man, the UK's video games sales data people GfK Chart-Track have just announced that Modern Warfare 2 has become the second best selling game of all time. It's...
DICE has announced that anyone who's redeemed their VIP code for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will receive mode updates for both the Arica Harbour and Laguna Presa maps on March 30th
That's the same day as the XBOX 360 version of Modern Warfare 2 gets new multiplayer maps. Interesting. Anyway, if you've redeemed your VIP code, you'll totally get this...
Remember Call Of Duty? Yeah it was a big deal for a little while
It'll continue to be a big deal for a while longer. But it kinda sounds like the franchise is done. In a whole pile of drama starting yesterday, Activision has fired the Infinity Ward bosses Vince Zampella and Jason West. Activision's also filed a document citing a human resources investigation into breaches of contract and..
It seems to me that every video game has multiplayer these days
More or less. And even when it's debateable whether a game should have multiplayer (Bioshock 2 springs to mind), the resulting component tends to be rather impressive. But that causes its own sub-set of problems, particularly for someone like myself who has to play through multiple...
Apparently Bioshock is still a big deal, as Bioshock 2 has shot straight to the top of the UK charts, removing previous leader Mass Effect 2
Interestingly, after a slew of price-cuts (and perhaps that Playstation 3 patch), Bayonetta has re-entered the charts in number 10 (up from 36). Elsewhere, Fifa 10 and Modern Warfare 2 are still strong propositions. Check out the full list after the jump..
It never seems to be longer than a few days before we're posting about yet another Modern Warfare 2 patch
We know the popularity of the game has lead to plenty of exploits but, this is kind of ridiculous. The latest patch should fix the predator missile on care package exploit, plus more rebalancing for the shotguns. Oh and earning negative XP no longer happens. Anyone still play this game? Dumb..
The executive producer of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Charles Magnusson, has told Eurogamer
de</a> that he believes Battlefield: Bad Company 2's multiplayer is simply "better" than Modern Warfare 2."I certainly respect our colleagues and they have made a first-class title on the legs, but I think we simply have a better, richer multiplayer experience. Exactly what we wanted..
We were kind of worried about MAG's sales
Oh, there are plenty of people playing the game to make the servers active, and the actual game is worthy of 4/4 on this very website — but if the initial sales were bad then, yo, it might mean less post-support from the folks at Zipper. Which is where MAG is likely to thrive. So it's pleasing to see MAG enter the UK sales charts at number four. Sure, the..
Gah, it feels like every week we're posting about another Modern Warfare 2 patch that fixes some glitch or other
Take the latest patch, which fixes the following: Care Package, Emergency Airdrop, and Sentry Gun marker grenades sprint speed normalized Fix for "infinite care package" exploit Sentry Guns: Improved placement detection, preventing cases of Sentry Guns inside geometry Model..
Can anyone think of any other songs aside from those by Lady GaGa that use the lyric "just dance" as a central theme? We're racking our brains here in the PushSquare office but nothing's coming
Answers on a postcard merci beaucoup. Yep, if the overly obvious post-title didn't give it away, we can confirm that Wii-title Just Dance has beaten Modern Warfare 2 to the UK charts top-spot for the second..
Someone grab that little dude with the funny suit from Braid because I'm about to take you on a trip through time
Rewind the clocks back to November 2006 when Sony released the Playstation 3 upon the world. It was met with feverish anticipation and was considered the second, err, third coming of the great Playstation home console series. All was...
Microsoft announced at E3 that they'd given Activision lots of money secured "exclusive first looks" at the upcoming Modern Warfare 2 DLC, but until today the exact context of that statement had not been revealed
However, Eurogamer are reporting today that Modern Warfare 2 DLC will receive a period of timed-exclusivity on the XBOX 360, for 30 days...
Come on guys
Dance. After nine weeks, Modern Warfare 2 has finally been knocked off the top of the British sales charts which means — we get to say something interesting in this post for once. Like quoting Lady GaGa lyrics. That's right folks, of all the games to topple Infinity Ward's shooter, the Wii's Just Dance has done the impossible. On red wine. So what else's going down on the floor?..
ELSPA's confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 was the biggest selling game for the Playstation 3 in 2009
The news comes shortly after Modern Warfare 2 was announced as the biggest game of the year by ELSPA, raking in sales of £67million in just one week. The game's now pulled in over $1billion. Sitting next to Modern Warfare 2 in the Playstation 3's...
Maybe next time, we'll drop the clue
But our little game still won't be much fun, yo. It's too obvious. At this stage we're starting to believe that even when something huge, like, say, Final Fantasy XIII or God Of War III launches; Modern Warfare 2 will still be sitting atop the British sales charts. It'll probably still be there in 2011. By which time we'll have run out of funny comments to write..
Co-op is the future of online multiplayer
Never in all my years of opinionating have I been more sure of one thing: co-op is the future of online multiplayer. There'll always be a place in video games for the wrought solo escapades of a tight single-player experience, as will there always be the space for competitive multiplayer — but co-op is...
Blimey oh riley
Here's not news you expect to report on everyday. According to reports from Destructoid, Infinity Ward are hiring staff to develop an MMO. The company are apparently sniping employees from Sony Online Entertainment and Blizzard to help out on the game, including EverQuest II's Ryan Barker. Destructoid reckon the MMO will run...
Modern Warfare 2 is still top of the British sales charts
Still. That's the eighth consecutive week for Infinity Wards game about shooting people. Elsewhere, nothing much happened. Interesting.

Quick update , Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has just Tweeted that the 15mb Modern Warfare 2 update is available now
As we posted yesterday, the update fixes the Javelin glitch alongside some other exploits. Quite a few people wrote in yesterday saying they'd stopped playing MW2 until this stuff got fixed. You can jump back in now eh, guys?
Infinity Ward are finally readying a patch to fix Modern Warfare 2's much-famed Javelin glitch
The glitch, which makes people go really fast and be all explosive, is already in certification according to Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling. Aswell as the Javelin glitch, patch 1.06 will also fix the infinite care package exploit, aswell as stopping players from glitching the scenery (i.e. hiding inside..
Haven't you bought it yet already? Well, we suppose there's not much else coming out
