It is launch week for Bungie’s highly anticipated FPS title Destiny. There have been many videos showcasing the game; especially the exclusive content consumers will receive if they purchase the game on PlayStation. While the videos have exclusively promoted Destiny on Sony’s PlayStation consoles, it... Read more...
If you haven’t noticed by now, all of the Destiny trailers have been focused on PlayStation and, more recently, showcasing all of the exclusive content that will be available on Sony’s PlayStation consoles. However, Microsoft UK isn’t going to sit back and let people think that Destiny is only coming... Read more...
When it comes to lucrative game franchises two of the most well-known ones happen to be Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Activision publishes the CoD franchise while Take-Two Interactive is responsible for publishing GTA. However, there are rumors floating around that Activision might be trying to purchase Take-Two. Speculation began when... Read more...
There was never any doubt that Bungie's Destiny was going to be anything other than a major hit, but some proof of that has trickled out today: The game has become GameStop's most pre-ordered new IP in history. To celebrate this milestone, and also to help kick off Gamescom 2014, a competitive multiplayer trailer has... Read more...
We were given our first preview of Sledgehammer Games' second Call of Duty title, Advanced Warefare, back in May, so to say a multiplayer preview is a little overdue at this point would be a huge understatement. Well, that preview is here, and it comes to us in the form of a trailer. It looks like CoD fans are going... Read more...
When Blizzard released World of Warcraft in 2004, the MMO world didn't know what was about to hit it. At the time of the game's release, I played two different MMOs, and post-WoW launch, I was amazed at the number of people who abandoned those games in favor of Blizzard's new hotness. In fact, in many ways, WoW caused... Read more...
The first images of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare hit the Web yesterday, in advance of what was supposed to be a proper unveiling this coming Sunday. Activision decided to pull the trigger early, however, and we're glad it did: Advanced Warfare could be the best Call of Duty title we've seen in quite some time. Like... Read more...
It's been four long years since we last saw a new Tony Hawk video game, which might as well be an eternity if you're a fan of skateboarding and/or the skateboarding legend himself (who, by the way, retired from the sport in 1999). Though it seemed like there might never be another Tony Hawk game, the legendary skater... Read more...
The good news is that Bungie’s eagerly anticipated Destiny finally has a release date. The bad news is that date is September 9th, 2014, which is several long months away. The Destiny Beta will kick off this summer, so those involved on that front won’t have to wait as long to dive in, but that still may... Read more...
If you’ve never played “Skylanders” with kids before, you’re missing out. It’s easy to see why the franchise is so popular; the game is simple enough that young kids can play it, yet it’s sufficiently entertaining that you don’t get bored playing it with them, and the... Read more...
Destiny isn't set to launch until Q2/Q3 next year, but Bungie and Activision have wasted no time in revealing the box art for their game. Given the art we've seen in the past, these boxes are likely to strike no one as all-too-interesting, though ahead of the next-generation console launch, it is still kind of neat to... Read more...
As nutty as it may seem, the thing I get most excited about whenever the latest Call of Duty drops is the single-player campaign. I know - I should be ashamed. While many consider the story to be the weakest part of any CoD, I eat it up, and given the fact that no CoD has failed to keep me engaged, I have rather high... Read more...
Infinity Ward's highly anticipated Call of Duty: Ghosts comes out on November 5, 2013, which is 10 days before Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) console will be available in the U.S. and Canada. If the thought of waiting a week and a half to play Ghosts is just too much bear, Activision comes to the rescue with a $10 upgrade... Read more...

Call of Duty: Ghosts will be available for the PC as well as the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 consoles. It appears to be coming for the Wii U, as... Read more...
The CEO of Activision Blizzard Bobby Kotick announced this morning that he would lead an investor buyout of the company worth approximately $8.2 billion dollars. The move would free Blactivision (how has this moniker never caught on?) to become an independent publisher and free it from the clutches of Vivendi, the... Read more...
We got a taste of “Destiny”, a new MMO being developed by Activision and Bungie, back in February, and now the companies are teasing the game even more with a trailer called “Law of the Jungle”. Directed by Jon Favreau and featuring Giancarlo Esposito, the trailer teases what appear to be cut... Read more...
It’s official: the next iteration of Activision’s Call of Duty series is nigh, and far from being just another entry into the Modern Warfare series, it’s an all-new game with new characters, new setting, and even a new engine. Activision is calling it a “leap forward” for the franchise... Read more...
One of the best things about any Game Developers Conference is that it's where much of the interesting tech soon to hit our video games is first shown off. It's no surprise, then, that it's been the place to be for advanced character rendering and of course, the Holy Grail of them all, facial animation... Read more...
Don't believe anyone who tells you the Revolution won't be televised, that's a bunch of hogwash. The Revolution is going to be on televisions all over the place, especially starting February 28, 2013, which is when Activision plans to release the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution DLC map pack for PC and...

In a conference call with investors, Activision discussed the success of its Skylanders series, which is a Spyro the Dragon spinoff that's played along with toy figures through a "Portal of Power." Young children between 6-11 years old represent the target demographic, and that's something that concerns Activision... Read more...
The Call of Duty series is immense. Each title manages to sell a record-breaking number of copies, and across all of the platforms they're available for, players tend to stick with them until the next one comes out. Despite all this, the game has very little presence in the pro-gaming landscape. Instead, it's titles... Read more...
While it may have been easy to predict, we can now confirm that Activision's wildly popular Call of Duty series is still the one the beat. The latest title in the CoD franchise -- Black Ops II -- notched over $500 million in worldwide sales during the first 24 hours of its release, more than doubling that of Halo 4's... Read more...
