190w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has announced that beginning today new MAG PS3 strategic bonus overhead map views are available for download!
To quote: We've had a lot of requests from our diehard MAG fans to release "birds-eye view" shots of our detailed and expansive maps - and now we're pleased to say that we're giving them to you.
Starting right now, we're releasing ultra hi-res imagery of every competitive map in the game so that you can meticulously plan your attack routes, defensive maneuvers, and leadership tactics before the next time you set foot on the battlefield.
Below is a link to each Suppression, Sabotage, Acquisition, and Domination map that MAG has to offer. Download them, share them, do whatever you want with them - they're all yours. Enjoy!
[Note, to see the highest-res version of these maps, click on "All Sizes" above the image in the Flickr Page, and then choose "Original"]
214w ago - Treyarch Community Manager Josh Olin announced today that Call of Duty: World at War PS3 Map Packs are 50% off for a limited time, and revealed news of new CoD playlists as well.
To quote: For one week only (offer ending November 1, 2009), Call of Duty: World at War Map Packs 1, 2, and 3 for PS3 will be half-off in the PlayStation Store (only available in North America).
So if you are missing one, we hope this makes it a bit easier to complete your collection!
With this, we're announcing some important playlist changes you'll want to take note of:
• Hardcore HQ: The addition of Hardcore Headquarters to the Hardcore playlists has taken effect, by popular demand.
• Team Flags: In the MAP PACK category, the old "Team Objective" playlist has been removed, and replaced with two playlists; Team Flags being one of them (CTF, Domination, and War).
• Team Objectives: Also in the MAP PACK category, the counterpart to Team Flags is this new playlist, Team Objectives (S&D, HQ, and Sabotage).
• Also, all 3 map packs are now in the MAP PACK rotation. So if you want to play only new content, but are tired of the same 3 maps, this will hopefully be a happy medium for you =).
Finally, we've turned on Double-XP which will also end Monday, November...

229w ago - According to GamersDigest (linked above), the Coral Sea and the Air Superiority mode has finally been unlocked for the PS3 version of Battlefield 1943.
XBox 360 players had unlocked it earlier in the week as they reached the target figure of 43 million kills that was set by EA Dice, but PS3 players can now also enjoy the fourth map.
The demo timer has also been reset, meaning if you've downloaded the demo and expired the allotted 30 minutes of time, there will be another 30 waiting for you when you sign back in.
To quote: GamersDigest can confirm that Coral Sea and the 'Air Superiority' mode has finally been unlocked for the PS3 version of Battlefield 1943, with 360 players having unlocked it earlier on in the week.
To play the new map and mode, look at the last option on the menu, select it just like you would select 'Quick Match' and get ready for pure dogfighting.
