MP1st – Call of Duty 9 and Elite 2.0 Set For 2012 Release, “Meaningful Innovation to the Franchise” Promised

MP1st – Call of Duty 9 and Elite 2.0 Set For 2012 Release, “Meaningful Innovation to the Franchise” Promised | Videogame Interesting Posts | Scoop.it

During Activision’s Q4 earnings call, the publisher confirms that the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise is indeed coming this year.

 

In the last few months, all signs pointed to another Call of Duty in 2012, from domain registration for Black Ops 2 to Treyarch developers hints at features such as Zombies. This isn’t shocking news as several studios alternate to develop Call of Duty titles on yearly basis. Eric Hirshberg announced today that “this year, we expect to further expand our presence with the launch of an all-new epic first person shooter title under the Call of Duty brand.” He added, “from what we’ve seen the game already looks fantastic and will bring meaningful innovation to the franchise. I could not be more excited.”

 

Regarding the Elite platform, Eric promised Modern Warfare 3 players to expect “additional features in the next 60 days.” He stated, “We plan to keep our foot on the gas with Call of Duty Elite. Although we are pleased with where we are today, the objective of Elite is to make the total Call of Duty experience more fun and more engaging and we plan to launch additional features in the next 60 days.” Of course , Elite isn’t going anywhere, and we can expect it to become a part of every Call of Duty including this year’s. Hirshberg noted, “we’re already hard at work on Elite 2.0 with several innovative features being developed to work hand in hand with our next Call of Duty release.”

 

Personally, I’d like to see more emphasis on map design in multiplayer and dedicated servers added. Granted my two demands aren’t ‘meaningful innovations’, but this is my short wish list for this year’s CoD. What innovations would you like to see in the next Call of Duty?

 

Thanks, EuroGamer

Gotham City Impostors fails to unlock for some PS3 players

Gotham City Impostors fails to unlock for some PS3 players | Videogame Interesting Posts | Scoop.it

It seems that some PS3 users are running into trouble with Gotham City Impostors, and we're not referring to all the fake Batmen clogging the streets. According to posts on the Gotham City Impostors forums, some PS3 users are unable to unlock the full version of the game. Even after paying for the title, some find themselves stuck with the trial version.

 

A forum administrator notes that Warner Bros. is working on the issue with Sony and asks that users experiencing the problem respond to this thread with their PSN ID and the country from which they are playing. In the meantime, if you haven't already purchased Gotham City Impostors, we'd recommend waiting until the issue is resolved.

Halo: Eye of the Storm is anything but calm

Halo: Eye of the Storm is anything but calm | Videogame Interesting Posts | Scoop.it

You know, the younger crowd has more ways than ever to pay homage to their favorite games. Back in our day, the only "machinima" we could produce were crude sketches of Chrono and the Battletoads in our Trapper Keeper. Now kids can produce short films about their favorite game using their favorite game!

 

And that's pretty much what Halo: Eye of the Storm is. Created under Microsoft's Game Content Usage Rules in Halo 3, this 22 minute epic re-imagines the events of The Storm, the game's fifth campaign mission. In his submission email to Joystiq, creator Philip Kang told us it took over two years to create Eye of the Storm. He had to play through the same mission over 100 times trying to get the AI to do specific things necessary for each shot. Actors, right?

 

In the end, it was all worth it: Kang's created a video masterpiece, now featured on a website our friend's uncle once called "a website."
