First Image of Call of Duty 2014 Released

cod-2014-sledgehammer IGN and Sledgehammer have released an image of the next Call of Duty, supposedly from in-game footage. Call of Duty 2014 has yet to be fully revealed, although it was confirmed earlier this year that it would be made with a focus on new-gen consoles. Perhaps the release of this image, with its rather excellent texturing, is a continuation of that.

 

Snoop Dogg Announces your Kills in new Call of Duty DLC

Xbox360_SnoopDogg Have you ever felt that Call of Duty could do with a little more street cred? Perhaps all those fat little suburban teenagers need balancing out, and Activision has just the solution. Very soon they'll be releasing a brand new piece of DLC that allows you to alter your announcer's voice so that it sounds less soldier and more Snoop.

 

Microsoft Working on Official 360 Emulator?

gears-of-war-judgment_690x388 It appears Microsoft are looking into ways of getting Xbox 360 titles back onto the Xbox One. How far along they are through that process is unknown, and many doubt it's even possible in the first place, but the console manufacturer is, at the very least, trying to work things out.

 
 

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in Development

borderlands2p3 It was only a month ago that Randy Pitchford said his studio wasn't working on a new Borderlands title and that hiding work on new titles was pointless, and here we are. Although it's true that Gearbox aren't directly working on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, a new game set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, 2K Australia apparently are.

 

Predator Leaping into Call of Duty

predator A short teaser video from the official Call of Duty Instagram page shows a distinctly Predator-esque level, with a distinctly invisible threat hunting the player. Although it's not expressly said that Predator will be making an appearance in the next set of DLC maps, which the video is a teaser for, it's pretty obvious. The description even has the quote "If it bleeds..." in it.

 

Ground Zeroes PS4 Sells Almost Three Times Xbox One Version

mgsV-Snake-bike_690x387 Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is a decent title, although the price doesn't quite match the amount of content on offer (our full review is coming later today). That hasn't stopped it being a pretty successful seller though, hitting second place in the charts behind Infamous: Second Son. The fact that it's had a fairly exciting launch isn't really the most interesting thing about its release though. For that, you'll need to look closer.

 
 

Xbox Live Having Problems After Titanfall Release

titanfall 11 It looks like Titanfall might have had quite the launch. With so many people logging on Xbox Live to download patches and shoot each other up from massive death robots, the online service has come to a grinding halt. Sorry, that's not quite how the official channels have put it - Xbox Live Core Components are currently limited.

 

New LEGO The Hobbit Trailer Released

lego-the-hobbit_690x355 While the Lord of the Rings franchise focussed on a small group of people changing the world in a big way, The Hobbit was more about the group (at least up to a point). This isn't something that's been lost on the team behind LEGO The Hobbit either, as they've added new ways for you to work together with your "buddies." Warner Brothers today released a new trailer showcasing these new abilities, and the importance of your group.

 

Titanfall Won’t Have a Season Pass

titanfall 11 If you've played an AAA game in the last twelve months, there's a good chance you've come across the concept of the 'Season Pass'. This gives you an entire collection of DLC at a reduced price, usually the cost of one DLC pack. It started, among other places, with Call of Duty, and Infinity Ward alumni Respawn were expected to continue the trend. They won't be - Titanfall will not have a season pass.

 
 

Xbox 360 The Time to Buy is Now!

Xbox360logo_129x129 While the allure of the new systems will entice a lot of people, take a step back and ask yourself: is it really worth it? I have played PS4 and the graphics capability of that system are outstanding. I've also had the privilege of playing the Xbox One, and the innovation that is on display in that system is definitely a sign of good things to come. But is buying any one of these systems truly worth it, especially right now?
