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:

Just a quick update!

A few things to blog about, but such little time. First Battlefield 3 has been out just over a week and has sold 5 million copies but Call of Duty Black ops sold that in its first day. So the analyst may be right Call of Duty just might outsell Battlefield 2-1.

Minecraft has won the GameCity video game arts prize! It is a pretty beautiful game – in a blocky sort of way. It was announced at the end of the GameCity video game culture festival in Nottingham! It won over other big titles like Valve’s Portal 2. ‘Its a great honour to be compared to those games’ Says Swedish creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson. the game has been bought over 4 million times world-wide even though it’s still a beta! Remember it is due out next month.

The Grand Thief Auto v (GTA) trailer is out. I don’t know much about GTA so I probably won’t be blogging about it.

007 Goldeneye: Reloaded comes out today for Europe. It stars Daniel Craig, with better graphics than the Wii version. A multiplayer is also included along with a story-line and a MI6 ops mode. For more info click this link.

Call of Duty: Double XP

For the first time ever there is double XP across the whole Call of Duty franchise, for the whole weekend, that’s Call of Duty 4, World at War, Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops. My advise is use this to prestige and in doing so you will get prestige tokens in MW3 which you can buy stuff with, like an extra create-a-class or special emblems. So in Mw3 you could start of with 6 create-a-class and be ahead of the game. Beat you friends!

Modern Warfare 3!

MW3 Game deal

The new instalment in the Call of Duty franchise is coming! Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) is released on the 11th November. The solo picks up straight after its predecessor Modern Warfare 2 and it’s hypothetic WW3 and includs the stars of the game (John ‘soap’ McTavish and Cpt. John Price). Luckilly the game will focus more on the story telling aspect, something MW2 lacked. It is a clasic CoD campagain, a  ‘very cinematic experiance with inseane action moments’. The Co-op mode will feature ‘Spec ops’ like in MW2 and the new addition of ‘Survival’ a horde bassed game mode, dubed the ‘Zombies of Modern Warfare 3’.

CoD Crazy!

The limited edition MW3 console with 2 limited edition controllers

It appears Activision are really milking the release of MW3 with a few limited edition products. The limited edition Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 320 gigabit Xbox 360 console (£269.99) looks amazing! It has an digital camo look, incorporating sounds from the game when turning on and opening the disc tray. The limited edition controller (£34.99 each) follows suit looking just as awesome with the same metallic look. They have also released a limited edition bluetooth headset (£44.99) which looks like the PS3 sort.

How to improve your game!

Back when I was a noob on CoD, I struggled to go positive. Here are my tips and tricks so you can be prepared for MW3 or improve on earlier CoD games.

MW2, 'Ump45' with 'Red Dot' sight

  1. Sensitivity – turn your sensitivity up. Some times when you go in for the knife, you miss and it’s whoever turns round first gets the kill.
  2. Brightness – Turn up your brightness to see the happy campers in dark corners.
  3. Button layout – Try out the ‘Tactical Button Layout  it keeps you body motions closer to your fingers so drop shotting is easier.
  4. Sound – some times the volume isn’t loud enough and you may not hear the click of a gun round the corner.
  5. Perks – use perks to complement you play style and gun, don’t have Lightweight or Marathon if you’re a camper.
  6. Kill streaks – Set your kill streaks to what you can achieve or whats the point?

I hoped these helped. What are you most looking forward to in MW3? leave your answer in the comments:

Gamers Kit list Part 2

My next suggestion is to ‘up your game’. Are you tired of people sneaking up behind you and stabbing you in the back? Are you tired of people planting the bomb beneath your nose? Well I say no more! With these Turtle Beaches you can shoot the backstabber and kill the bomb planter! No more shall you go negative.

X11's

The Turtle Beach X11’s are a good place to start for a medium budget (about £50) they are wired, which can occasionally get tangled. They have an amplifier to control game volume and chat volume, you don’t have to listen to the squeaky little boy anymore. It plays your voice back to you, so you won’t scream again!

X41's

The Turtle Beach X41’s are for the bigger budget (£150) but they are wireless, which means the headset runs on batteries.It has all the same other features as the X11’s. The wireless transmitter has a range of 30 feet.

These will really help you! You will be amazed of how amazing the sound is! Good luck!

What, another Easter Egg?

We thought we had found them all. But now it appears that the creators of Call of Duty Black Ops, Treyarch have added yet another achievement to the Zombies game mode. This follows the addition of the ‘Mule Kick’ perk to all  Zombies maps! (Natch der Untoten, Verruckt, Shi No Numa, Der Riese, Kino der Untoten, Five, Ascension, Call of the Dead). Click this link to see the locations of  ‘Mule Kick‘ on each map. Treyarch obviously like putting achievements into their Zombies maps for us to get our sticky mitts on. If you know anything about this mysterious achievement please leave it in the comments:
