Ever imagine how it would be like to step in a video game? Well fret no more because Activision boss Eric Hirshberg just announced Call of Duty XP 2011. A 2 day event that will be held in Los Angeles in September. COD XP 2011 is like DisneyLand COD style. Plans are for two maps to be recreated in full scale so that a people who pay the $150 entrance fee can feel how its like to be in the game. 32 team bracket tournaments, food from Burger Town, a chance to play MW3 in advance.. these are just some of the things you can expect from this event.
Former Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella, best known for their work on the Call of Duty Franchise, have launched the website for their new formed company “Respawn Entertainment”.
EA Games Label president “Frank Gibeau” talked to the press about Respawn’s first project, along with Insomniac Games (best known for Ratchet & Clank and Resistance series, to be a “sci-fi oriented” shooter. “It will allows us to compete with things like Gears and Halo”.
Do you think Respawn’s next title will be a Halo killer?
Get a closer look at the “Close-Range Assault” mode and hover over some dizzying one-on-one encounters as Namco Bandai reveals a new gameplay footage from Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. The 10-minute flythrough shows off the exhilarating maneuvering, spot-on targeting, hovering attacks and other wicked-cool features that you’ll soon get to try when Assault Horizon hits your local store’s shelves, this fall. To be exact, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon will be released on October 11th in North America and October 14th in Europe.
With the new announcement of PSP titles being remastered in HD for the PS3 comes another not so good one. Trophy support will not be included. Sony Japan isn’t saying why this is exactly but Kotaku was quick to point out the obvious. Trophy hacking would be far to easy as all games support save transfer from psp to PS3. With email and many other forms of file transfer one can simply post a save that can be placed on a psp memory stick then transferred to a PS3 allowing for an instant platinum. Getting tons of extras with these titles should make for a solid purchase but those who simply love virtual Trophies are going to be truly discouraged on a purchase.
Does this affect your purchase plans? Will this be a theme that will continue with the PS Vita?
