76w ago - Activision Associate Producer Travis Day has announced alongside new a video trailer that The Amazing Spider-Man swings onto PS3 today with collectible suits and comics.
To quote: Good news - The Amazing Spider-Man video game comes to PS3 today with PlayStation Move support.
The game's story picks up right where this summer's blockbuster movie, The Amazing Spider-Man, leaves off in a new tale crafted by acclaimed Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey and voiced by veteran talent such as Nolan North, Sam Riegel, and Bruce Campbell (and even Stan Lee, for those of you who pre-ordered the game from Amazon!)
The Amazing Spider-Man has been developed by the veteran webheads over at Beenox (creators of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions) and the team has been hard at work over the last two years to bring Spider-Man back home to an open-world Manhattan teeming with side missions and playable content.
In addition to bringing back free-roaming gameplay, the team has dramatically improved the combat system and added an entirely new feature called Web Rush. Stick with me and I will explain why this is the best Spider-Man game yet!
In The Amazing Spider-Man, you'll swing all over Manhattan stopping...
109w ago - Activision's Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has revealed PS3 walkthrough details today for Call of Duty Elite on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system below.
To quote: Call of Duty players all have one big thing in common: Call of Duty. Sounds obvious, I know, but I think that's enough.
Now, some of you reading this are fantastic Call of Duty players. Some of you stink on ice. Let me slide over on this big block of frozen water to make room for you folks in the latter camp. Come sit next to me and we can talk about why we always seem to be on the wrong end of a noob tube.
That said, the gap between the masters and the students is not that wide. We're all playing for the same reason - Call of Duty games are fun, that's all. I'll always take an opportunity to learn and improve, but even when I get my rear handed to me online, as long as I enjoy the company of the people I'm playing with, I'm more likely to leave a session laughing, regardless of KDR.
This is where Call of Duty Elite comes in. Not many games have 30 million people playing them, so the idea behind Elite was to give all those players a common ground - a service that would help them connect, compete, and improve. We're all playing...
134w 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 said, "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.
While other platforms soaked up the extra experience points, PS3 gamers had to hang in there while PlayStation put everything in order behind the scenes. In cases like that, patience isn't a virtue – patience is a pain in the butt.
As the double-XP date loomed nearer, more and more PlayStation gamers wondered if they'd be able to take part in the festivities, and Treyarch - developer of Black Ops - swore to fans that they would not be forgotten.
This weekend, they're quickly making good on that promise, with a double-XP period that lasts from this Friday, May 20th at 10am all the way through the weekend and beyond - the good stuff keeps coming until 10am on Tuesday the 24th. What's more, that's...
179w ago - Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick has spoken out against dedicated videogame consoles, claiming that his company could be making significantly more money on open platforms like the PC.
To quote: Speaking to the Financial Times, Kotick claims that 60 percent of Xbox Live users are there "principally because of Call of Duty," and that Activision doesn't see a fair share of the money from it.
Kotick described closed console networks as "walled gardens," and said that his company would "very aggressively" support PC manufacturers such as Dell and HP in any efforts to produce gamer-friendly PCs that plug directly into televisions, creating the opportunity for Activision to open an online network of its own.
Kotick made similar statements to The Wall Street Journal last month, claiming at the time that only 30 percent of the company's profits come from console games.
197w ago - Infinity Ward studio heads Jason West and Vince Zampella who were fired by Activision earlier this week are now suing the publisher for wrongful dismissal, unpaid royalties and the right to control "Modern Warfare-branded games."
They've issued a strongly-worded statement via their lawyers responding to Activision's claims of "insubordination" as follows:
The statement claims that, in Call of Duty and Modern Warfare, West and Zampella created "two of the most successful videogames in history" and, get this, "the most successful entertainment product ever offered to the public."
"Activision terminated their employment weeks before they were to be paid substantial royalty payments as part of their existing contracts for Modern Warfare 2" the statement reads.
"Instead of thanking, lauding, or just plain paying Jason and Vince for giving Activision the most successful entertainment product ever offered to the public, last month Activision hired lawyers to conduct a pretextual 'investigation' into unstated and unsubstantiated charges of 'insubordination' and 'breach of fiduciary duty,' which then became the grounds for their termination on Monday, March 1st" said...
