167w ago - Today Activision's Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced news that a Double XP weekend is incoming for Call of Duty: Black Ops on the PlayStation 3.

To quote: Leo Tolstoy once [Register or Login to view links], "The two most powerful warriors are patience and time."

Ask any PlayStation gamer who missed out on the Call of Duty: Black Ops double XP weekend a few weeks ago, and they'll tell you: Leo knew what he was talking about.

The news is from the US PS Blog, so I'd say by tomorrow at this time (for you) it should be live as it's only Thursday night here.
