Official details of the new CoD4 Map Pack!

50°
338w ago - Below are the latest official details on the CoD4 map pack:

Since details on the maps have been pretty scattered throughout the internet, I thought I'd give you guys a comprehensive breakdown of each map in the upcoming Variety Map Pack for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare along with some suggestions on gametypes, classes, and a few more screenshots to look over; all in one location.

For those of you who don't know, these maps will be hitting in April and will be 800 MS Points (same pricing for PSN). Along with the map pack will be a few minor changes to the game, including a tweak to Clan Tags to re-allow special characters.

Individual DLC Map Descriptions:

Broadcast
Its size and alternating routes make "Broadcast" great for large team games. A large, multi-story television station with plenty of window vantage points creates the perfect setting for floor-to-floor combat.

The station is surrounded by extensive outdoor areas consisting of a long parking lot, surrounding buildings with sniping hiding spots and side-rooftop access to the top and bottom floors of the television station.

Creek
A large wide open village in the woods, "Creek" consists of heavy foliage, great for sniper cover: a deep ravine offers an excellent vantage point...
 

[PS3NEWS] CoD4 Clan Tag Project!

200°
340w ago - As a means of expanding the site I though it would be a good idea if we set up a [PS3NEWS] CoD4 Clan Tag. This would raise awareness of the site online and increase the community spirit within the members of the site.

Members could flaunt their commitment to the site and we could set up Clan-based matches online. We could also set up a STICKY Forum thread with a list of [PS3NEWS] Clan members PSN IDs so that you can easily find friends who are part of it and add them to your friends list.

If anyone would be intrested in such a idea the please post in the Forum thread linked to this article (or HERE) with your PSN ID and if we get enough interest then it may be something we would consider in the near future.

342w ago - The Official Metal Gear Solid 4 site is now online. The site currently has wallpaper, a countdown timer and a Metal gear Online teaser page.

Also there is a link for an integrated site which has details on all the characters, trailers for the game and details on new features of the game.

Home is 'best-looking multiplayer world'

50°
343w ago - The creative director of Sony's Home project has told GamesIndustry.biz in an exclusive interview to be published in full next week that he believes the PlayStation 3 virtual world platform is the "best-looking" and most "user-friendly" multiplayer experience he's seen so far.

Talking on a recent trip to Monaco for the Imagina conference, Ron Festejo explained his feeling that other virtual worlds, such as Second Life, were garish, while other online experiences were simply too hardcore for most people.

"From my point of view, looking at Second Life - because it has been mentioned a lot in the same paragraph as Home, and people make that comparison - I'm amazed at how many people go on there," he said.

He went on to discuss the importance of user-interfaces, detailed the issues he'd had interacting with others in Second Life, and also referenced other online titles that don't make it easy for inexperienced players to get involved with them.

"John [Venables, Home's lead artist] said in a presentation that for a lot of people, their first experience of online play is to 'log on...get shot in the face, log on...get shot in the face' and actually that's true - people tend to not go into that because of those experiences," he explained.

"Personally, looking at other models,...
