Call of Duty: Black Ops 'Annihilation' dated for PS3, PC

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2344 days, 12 hours, 32 minutes ago
Saturday, July 16, 2011 9:11:48 AM GMT
Actually, Activision's press release said it's "13 days away," so I had to pull out a calendar and count days with my finger. Because math is hard. And then I was like "Are they counting today as a day? Because like, there's a full day ahead of us." But no, it's definitely launching on July 28. My job is so difficult sometimes, really. (more)

Modern Warfare 3 will offer more options for Party Chat

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2344 days, 12 hours, 33 minutes ago
Saturday, July 16, 2011 9:10:25 AM GMT
Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling says that if you want to chat privately with your friends while playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, you'll probably be able to do so. While the last entry in the series blocked Xbox Live's Party Chat in many of the game modes, Modern Warfare 3 will apparently be much more forgiving. (more)

Blizzard Launches WoW ''Starter Edition''

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2361 days, 13 hours, 39 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 29, 2011 8:05:02 AM GMT
Tuesday evening Blizzard revealed that it converted the previous 10- and 14-day demos of World of Warcraft into a pseudo free-to-play MMORPG, throwing the time restrictions out the door and letting new players roam about indefinitely. The news arrives after Blizzard's CEO Mike Morhaime revealed that 600,000 subscribers jumped ship shortly after the release of Cataclysm, possibly due to the "quick consumption" of the expansion.

Blizzard carves out new info on Diablo 3 runestones

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2391 days, 11 hours, 58 minutes ago
Monday, May 30, 2011 9:46:03 AM GMT
It's been a long time since we've heard much on the new rune system in Diablo 3. For those who have forgotten -- it's been a while since BlizzCon 2008, after all -- Diablo 3 players can modify every class skill with a runestone. In the early version of the system, runestones came in fairly self-explanatory flavors. A multistrike rune, for instance, would add extra hits to a given skill. (more)

Wipeout: In the Zone trailer will brutalize your Avatar

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2427 days, 12 hours, 54 minutes ago
Sunday, April 24, 2011 8:50:00 AM GMT
We're not sure we understand the appeal of Activision's upcoming, Kinect-equipped TV adaptation, Wipeout: In the Zone. The trailer after the jump should explain our hesitation -- see, self-inflicted trauma is hilarious, but not when inflicted on lifeless, unfeeling Avatars. (more)

Tony Hawk: New game coming next year

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2439 days, 14 hours, 22 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 12, 2011 7:21:16 AM GMT
We fear that there may be no end in sight for Tony Hawk's long-troubled skateboarding series. Though Activision CEOs announced that 2011 would be the first year without a Tony Hawk game since the dawn of time, Hawk himself told PixelatedGeek in an impromptu interview that "We're actually right in the middle of making a whole new plan right now," when asked whether more Hawk-branded games were in the pipeline.

Apple reportedly hires top UK gaming PR execs from Nintendo and Activision

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2440 days, 11 hours, 21 minutes ago
Monday, April 11, 2011 10:22:14 AM GMT
As you may have noticed, Apple has been more serious about gaming lately that it was even during its Pippin-fueled haze in the mid-1990s, and it's now offering yet more evidence of just how invested it is with a pair of new hires. While the company isn't confirming the move just yet, MCV is reporting that Apple has snatched up Nintendo UK's former head of communications, Rob Saunders, who just left the big N last week and will apparently be focusing on PR for iOS apps at Apple.

Pachter: West, Zampella have no chance of getting Modern Warfare rights

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2445 days, 13 hours, 32 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 06, 2011 8:11:30 AM GMT
In addition to being the official economic soothsayer of the gaming industry, Michael Pachter knows a thing or two about legal affairs. Actually, he has a pair of law degrees, so odds are good that he knows more than two things. Regardless, he recently sounded off to IndustryGamers about former Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella's chances of gaining ownership of the Modern Warfare brand form Activision through legal action. His opinion? They've got "no prayer." (more)

Viral marketing lets slip the dogtags of Modern Warfare 3 [update: Activision comments]

posted by adminadmin 2484 days, 12 hours ago
Saturday, February 26, 2011 9:43:33 AM GMT
Two years ago, Infinity Ward used the Game Developer's Conference Awards show to unveil the trailer (and date!) for its hugely anticipated followup, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. If we're reading the signals right, it's looking to use the conference for the reveal of the third installment (Modern Warfare 3?), a game that's been shrouded in mystery following the developer's very public (and very ugly!) executive departures.

As if you needed any more evidence that Activision and Treyarch only care about the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops, this has sealed it. The PlayStation 3 version recently got a much-needed patch, with the added side-effect of this Xbox Live Party Chat message. (more)
