New Piazza map! Looks nice and sunny!

On the 24th January for Premium Elite members only (at the moment) a new DLC will be released. It will be completely free (you already payed for it in you elite membership) and comes with 2 maps:

Piazza, based on the coast of Italy. It reminds me of Estate (MW2) with a very vertical appearance and again the higher ground looks dominant but it also looks close quarters so its anybodies guess which weapons will be dominant but I’d put my money on the FAD or the ACR 6.8.

Libration, based in Manhattan. Looks to be the new Wasteland (MW2). Longer sight-lines means, the snipers will love it but the ‘run and gun’, rushing type will loath it! Could we see some sniping MOAB’s from talented snipers?

Liberation Castle a major camp site!

Throughout this season of new CoD content (9 months), every month the premium members will gain new maps, game modes, spec op missions and weirdly extent ion of the single player storyline. Looks to be an awesome year of CoDing! Watch the Elite video

New MW3 game modes!

Robert Bowling, Community man reveals on twitter that new MW3 game modes are coming!

‘Ready for new game modes for Modern Warfare 3’ he asks to the public. ‘I’ve go some surprises for you for the weekend. I’ll confirm full details tomorrow’

The new game modes could be anything but for now all we can do is sit and wait like excited little boys. It’s like an early Christmas present!

The Xbox Dashboard update came out yesterday as many of you will be aware. Already there are many problems like the inability to connect to Xbox Live.  The most serious of these problems are broken consoles. If you have a complant about the new update head to the Xbox status page.

In my opinion the new update looks sleek, it offers a new tonne of stuff and it really separates it form the Sony’s PSN system. I really like it and I really thought i wouldn’t. What do you think? And have you had any problems? Leave your answer in the comments:

Minecraft Xbox 360!

This weekend at MineCon fans and guests will be treated to a look at the Minecraft Xbox 360 game coming out in the Spring. They will also see a Minecraft Xbox 360. It is still unknown if this will be a limited edition thing with only a few around or mass produced.

MineCon is this weekend at Las Vegas. It will have lots of fun activites, there will be the Xbox Minecraft game, the full Minecraft Version and much much more!

Modern Warfare 3: 6.5 million

Just a quick bit of news. According to Activision Modern Warfare 3 sold 6.5 million copies on it’s release date in the UK and US. This makes it the most sucessful enertainment launch ever! The game earned Activision a woping $400 million over night. The rest of the world is yet to be added to the mix.

 

Minecraft on Xbox?

With all the update Minecraft on Xbox would loo like this!

Apparently Minecraft will only be coming to one console when it releases this month. Recently creator Notch confirmed it would only becoming to Xbox live – sorry PS3 people. If you want to get your hands on the Xbox version before anyone else you will have to go to the Minecon convention on the 18-19 November in Las Vegas.  I want to go but, its along way from Britain.

MW3: 1 Day Left!

The time is almost upon us where we stop playing MW2 or Black ops and put MW3 in our disc tray. Yes folks it is 1 whole day till Modern Warfare 3 comes out. I just can’t contain my self. I will have 2 prestige tokens – from prestiging in Black ops and MW2 plus 4 hours double XP which I got from pre-ordering of Game. I will keep you updated on: what I think of the game, which guns are the best, the best camping spots on maps and tones of other stuff. So follow this blog by clicking at the top right hand corner and entering your email address.

MW3 for $1725

Mw3 has been mistakenly sold early on eBay for $1725. Now, I know a lot to pay for a video game but you’ve got to admire the balls and money of this guy. He has the game early he can be 50 levels a head by the time we get it! One copy was placed on eBay and sold for nearly 29 times the retail price. It was bid for 88 times in total.

Early play may carry a harsh price. Xbox live’s Director of Policy and Enforcement Steven Tolouse tweeted ‘re-release play not authorised. Please be patient playing early may impact your account’. Activision has put these rumours at rest though saying they have no interest in banning players who get the game earlier. They just ask for ‘everyone to wait for Tuesday when everyone can play the game together’

If you were at that auction, at what price would you stop bidding? Leave your answer in the comments:

Xbox: Dashboard Update

The New Design - Looking good!

The next annual November Xbox Dashboard update is said to be more than routine. For starters your interface will change, getting a ‘new’ look. Most of us will hate it at first, as you do, but I hope it will be worth while. What may prove most interesting is what the new Dashboard will bring to the table. You may have seen the vast amount of TV broadcasters Microsoft have signed to bring your TV fix. The likes of YouTube and Bing have been accommodated in the new Dash. The new Dash is thought to have a ‘App’ tab to bring a third-party to the Marketplace – reminds me of the Apple ‘App Store’, surely Microsoft aren’t copying Apple? Will these ‘Apps’ be played on though, I mean with the vast amount of Games out there do we really need ‘Apps’?

The Kinect will be integrated within the Dash aswell – Bing will have complete voice control and gestures will be used to cycle through the Dash menu. Finally Microsoft are using their inventions. The update is dated on November 15th 2011 but looks more November 25th 2011.
