162w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that Blur will be offering Double XP all Halloweekend along with a PS3 developer play session.
To quote: In Blur, when you hit level 50 in the multiplayer system, you have opened up all the cars, activated all the mods, unlocked all the game modes, and hopefully have a decent strategy for all the tracks, from the tight turns of Hackney to the one-way trip down Mount Haruna.
And when you reach level 50, well, there's nowhere else to go. Except around the track, of course. Preferably very quickly.
And then, much like Modern Warfare 2, you face a decision: Do you keep playing with all the big toys, or do you challenge yourself by hitting a Legend rank and building up your reputation and garage again, based on pure skill?
As I write this, I'm level 40 or so. I'm going to get some more racing time in this week. And this weekend, the Blur developers at Bizarre Creations are offering a little Halloween treat - double XP from Friday the 29th through Sunday the 31st.
These are the perks when your studio's logo is a jack-o-lantern. That means for every race, you get twice as many fans, which means ranking up twice as fast,...

180w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has announced that MAG Interdiction (4MB Activation Patch) for PS3 is available today alongside a Double XP weekend!
To quote: Today is the day that MAG fans have been waiting for as our first major DLC, "Interdiction," is now available for purchase from the PlayStation Store for $9.99 US (prices in other regions may vary)!
If you missed our post detailing Interdiction a few weeks back, allow us to sum it up for you:
MAG Interdiction is a brand new game mode built for 128 players. In it, two rival attacking factions fight to gain control of three different command posts while using armored convoys for every squad on the map (that's right, 16 APCs onscreen at once!).
To earn the victory, teams must capture and hold as many objectives as possible to increase their score while simultaneously decreasing their opponents' score across three all-new "faction neutral" maps (Iron Creek Quarry, Lake Bayano Spur, and Sovot Motorway).
In addition to the new maps and gametype, Interdiction will also include the most powerful protection in the game, the "Heavy Improved" armor set,...
