Man Down: COD Elite PC Delayed

Elite, the social network/video-making/DLC-flogging wrapper for Call of Duty due to launch with Contemporary Fighting Techniques 3 next week, won't be turning up on PC at the same time as the game itself. Why? It's because you're so insecure. And so you should be, with that nose. Oh, sorry, I've got it wrong - it's because the devs think the PC's insecure. That's not an…

Modern Warfare 3 Is A Shooting Game

Look, I don't want this to be another groundhog day. I don't want the comments thread to fill up with people going 'Call of Duty is boring' and then some other people saying "that's just, like, your opinion, man." I just want you to only bother watching this video of Modern Warfare 3's 'Spec Ops' co-op mode if you honestly have a real interest in…

Bobby Kotick’s Provocation Corner

Activision boss Big Bobby K is unsurprisingly out on the campaign trail for Modern Warfare 3, and that means any journalists who manage to get past his Nazgûl guards inevitably attempt to ask him how he thinks EA's rivalrous Battlefield 3 is going to compare. Here's what he said. It almost certainly won't make you say incredibly rude things about a man you've never met.

COD Elite: The Free, The Paid & The Hmm

Call of Duty Elite, the social networking/clan-organising thingy for COD multiplayer, got a whole lot of backs up when it was unveiled the other week - the prevailing, Chinese-whispered sense being that we'd be expected to fork out to get the full CoD multiplayer experience. With the waters very much muddied, Activision seem to be in fire-fighting mode - now explicitly stating just what will…

Feature: You Get To Be Elite By Paying, Right?

Very Modern Warfare: Thoughts On CoD Elite

It was always going to happen, and now it has. The nature of a corporation is never to sit still and be content with its lot - it's to forever look to ways to make more money from what it has. (If RPS had a scrap of sense, we'd have launched a couple of spin-offs by now, but a corporation we are not). Activision was…

The Money Train: CoD Elite Explained

So after waiting a few hours to scowl at the Wall Street Journal for breaking the embargo, Activision have now officially taken the lid off Call of Duty: Elite, which means its actual features, rather than a pithy, video-based glossing-over of them, can be listed. Here's the horse's mouth breakdown of what the service actually entails.

Antisocial Network: Call of Duty Elite Trailer

The day has come: Activision has finally introduced Plan B. Plan B is much like Plan A, in that it also involves making an absolute crapton of money out of Call of Duty. This time, it's called Call of Duty Elite, and it's a social networking, clan-arranging, video-sharing, stat-analysing online service for COD multiplayer. Some aspects for it will be free; others will involve a…

Modern Warfare 3 Shows Its Wares

I guess Activision have been pretty good at rolling with the hard punch they took when Kotaku controversially busted open most of Modern Warfare 3's secrets the other week. A selection of trailers has now been followed by a preview day for the press that Activision's prepared to talk to (sigh). Here's Eurogamer's and VG24/7's impressions, both of which suggest a pretty familiarly hyper-scripted experience,…

Call of Whoopsie: Modern Warfare 3 Spoilt?

Someone's getting a) bollocked b) fired c) executed tonight, I'm sure. If Kotaku's sources are right, basically everything about this year's Call of Duty has just been blown wide open and revealed to John Q. Public some six months before likely release. It's Modern Warfare 3 and it's...
