02/06/2012, When Activision introduced Call of Duty: Elite to the world, people were in uproar about having to pay for additional services. While it didn’t go down well with the crowd, it still didn’t stop the service from being used, and it looks like it could be a model worth copying – at least in the eyes of EA. According to reports online, EA’s boss, John Riccitiello, was quoted as mentioning […]
02/02/2012, Call of Duty: Elite Premium members with Xbox 360 consoles have been enjoying the two new Modern Warfare 3 maps for a couple of weeks now, and it looks like they’ll be able to enjoy the game amongst themselves for awhile longer.

01/31/2012, The Amazing Spider-Man movie is coming up, and for those who are unfamiliar, the upcoming movie is a reboot of the Spider-Man franchise which previously starred Tobey Maguire in the role of Spider-Man. Well taking on the same name would be Activision’s The Amazing Spider-Man video game that supposedly will be taking place after the events of the movie.
12/12/2011, If you wonder why Activision churns out a new Call of Duty game each year, today’s announcement will shed some light. The company announced in a press release today that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has crossed the $1 billion mark in sales since its launch on November 8th 2011m and it only took 16 days to achieve it. While it’s not really fair to compare box office sales […]
12/01/2011, Remember the “The Vet & The n00b” trailer that was released last month? It looks like we haven’t seen the last of those two soldiers yet. A new The Vet & The n00b video has been released today, with Sam Worthington and Jonah Hill reprising their respective roles. This time around we get less action, but more comedic relief in the dialogue. Probably a tie-in with Call of Duty: ELITE […]
11/25/2011, Even though a video game has been released, that doesn’t mean we can’t watch its trailer anymore. After all, some games have pretty exciting trailers that are worth rewatching – especially if they’ve been recreated in LEGO. The folks over at Kooberz Studios came up with a recreation of one of the many official Modern Warfare 3 trailers, with nothing but LEGO pieces (and some handmade “special effects”).
11/10/2011, If there was any doubt to how successful Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was going to be, all those fears can now be laid to rest.

In comparison with the previous games in the […]
11/10/2011, It looks like Activision Blizzard’s popular MMORPG, World of Warcraft, is finally starting to die out. At the company’s recent financial report conference call for Q3 2011, it announced that it finished the quarter with 10.3 million active subscribers. Compared to the previous quarter this year, which it ended with 11.1 million active subscribers, the game has lost almost a million active subscribers. With WOW being Activision Blizzard’s most profitable […]
11/07/2011, While some people are willing to pay ridiculous amounts of money for an advanced copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, it looks like some folks in France thought so too. Though unlike the rest of us who will wait (one more day) for the game to be officially released, they decided to rob a truck full of video games instead. On Saturday morning in Créteil, south Paris, two […]
11/04/2011, Earlier this week, Kmart unknowingly put copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 up for sale, five days before its release date. Needless to say, copies of the game were snapped up and put up on eBay to be resold for oodles of cash. While most of the auctions were taken down, one of them remained online and was finally won today. The winning bid? $1,725. And this comes after […]
11/03/2011, We’re less than a week away from the official release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and there’s still more video footage of the game to be shared.

11/01/2011, While Modern Warfare 3 does not have the cutting-edge graphics of Battlefield 3, its fans would argue that MW3′s multiplayer gameplay is pretty awesome (understand: “better”). Its creators have added modes, like “keep the flag”, a mode where your team earns more points by “keeping” the flag. It’s a variant of capture the flag, that emphasizes the protection of your team’s flag. There’s also a Kill Confirmed mode in which […]

10/27/2011, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be available in just a couple of weeks, and to continue whetting the appetite of fans of the game, Activision has released another behind the scenes video for the game, this time explaining how the weapon progression system works. Just like before, you’ll be able to unlock new attachments for your weapon the more you use it, and the more kills you get. […]
