The Game Zone

  • The idea of a subscription based Call of Duty games is sounding more and more likely. President and CEO of Activision Bobby Kotick says "If you think about the success that we've had in other product categories on subscription, you can get a sense of the direction that we want to take that franchise." President and CEO of Activision Publishing says that they have been looking into new business models for the series.

  • The game Darkest of Days, even though it got terrible reviews, is going to the big screen. It is said that the writers from The Rock are attached to create the screenplay. Even though the game didn't do so well, I think it's is a neat concept for time traveling soldiers to go back in time to change the outcomes of war. I don't know how good this will be, but we'll have to wait and see.

  • Today, a representative from TimeGate confirmed that a PS3 version of Section 8 is scheduled for release, but does not have a specific ship date. Section 8 was originally announced as a multiplatform game for the Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3, but a PS3 version was never shipped with the others back in September.

  • Jack Tretton, President and CEO of SCEA, announced today that Uncharted 2: has sold close to three million units worldwide. He wrote, "Games like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves are surpassing our lofty expectations as it outsold the franchise's first PS3 game and is now closing in on three million copies sold worldwide."

  • Finally Dead Rising 2 has landed a release date on August 31st. While waiting to get your fix on slaughtering of zombies in Dead Rising 2, you will be able to download a playable prologue to the game on Xbox Live sometime in the short future
