97w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has confirmed today that the first MW3 Maps will be hitting PS3 Call of Duty Elite Premium Members on February 28, 2012 with details outlined below.
To quote: It's going to be a long year - and that's a good thing. While Modern Warfare 3 has occupied a lot of time in the drives of a lot of PS3 owners since its November release, there is more content to come over the next several months.
And if you're a premium member of Call of Duty Elite, you're going to get your first two tastes of that content on February 28th.
While the content season will contain more than 20 items overall - some multiplayer maps, some game modes, and some Spec Ops missions - the first two pieces of content in the season are a Call of Duty player's bread and butter: multiplayer maps.
The seaside village of Piazza is a perfect battleground for fans of close-quarters combat; the sharp corners, tight corridors, and stone staircases all offer compelling examples of why the word "paranoia" is the same in English and Italian.

130w ago - Today the NY Times (linked above) and Policia.es are reporting that Spanish Police have detained three Anonymous members in connection with the recent PSN cyberattacks with 32 more arrested in Turkey.
To quote from the Times: "The Spanish police said Friday that they had apprehended three men suspected of computer hacking in connection with recent cyberattacks on Sony's PlayStation Network as well as corporate and government Web sites around the world.
The National Police identified the three as the local leadership of the shadowy international network of computer hackers known as Anonymous, which has claimed responsibility for a wide variety of attacks.
Anonymous is made up of people from various countries organized into cells that share common goals, the police said, with activists operating anonymously but in a coordinated fashion.
One of the three "hacktivists," a 31-year-old Spaniard, was detained in the southern city of Almeria sometime after May 18, the police said. He had a computer server in his apartment in the northern port...
