COD 4: Modern Warfare - online maps

50°
344w ago - This year's Games Developer Conference is definitely turning out to be a goldmine of information, and this update regarding the upcoming map packs for Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (PC, Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PS3) is no exception.

Good news is that the developers are finally letting loose a few morsels of knowledge about them - bad news is that they're still not being specific about the entire thing.

So, what did the guys from Infinity Ward - more specifically, community manager Robert Bowling - reveal about the map packs? Well, it seems that pretty much anyone who likes Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will like the new maps. Bowling's statement, verbatim:

People who want open maps are going to be happy with this map pack. People who want more indoor locales are going to be happy with this map pack. People who want something completely different from what they're currently playing are going to be happy with this map pack.

Yep, that pretty much covers everyone. Besides that, though, he confirmed that the first maps will be available in a pack of three maps each. No word if they're going to be free or if there's a nominal fee one has to pay to access them yet though.

Text scams warning to youngsters

344w ago - Thousands of young people have been sent fake scam text messages by the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) to warn them about con-artists.

The campaign saw 25,000 mobile phone users aged between 18 and 24 receive a message telling them they might have won £1,000 in cash.

But a second message arrived soon after informing them that the message was a fake and warning them about scams.

The OFT estimates that 6% of scam victims are aged between 16 and 24.

The Information Commissioner's Office provided the OFT with numbers of 25,000 young people who have opted to receive marketing text messages.

As part of the OFT's Scams Awareness Month campaign, it sent texts to all these numbers on Friday.

The text reads: "Urgent! U may have won £1k cash with '2 Good 2 B True'."

A second text followed shortly afterwards that made clear that there was in fact no prize, and that it was simply a warning about scams.

New service

The message also highlighted SMSus, a new text message service from PhonepayPlus, the body which regulates services bought by phone. This allows users to text details (to 76787) of a premium rate number or shortcode they are suspicious about.

An automatic reply lists the cost of the number, details...
