CoD Black Ops: Escalation DLC hits PS3 on June 10TH

Call of Duty Console

Playstation 3 owners will finally be able to download the 2nd CoD: Black Ops Map Pack from PSN next week.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Map Pack Escalation from PSN

Map pack Escalation features five big chunks of content - four multiplayer maps and one star-studded Zombies experience unlike any other. For fans of competitive combat, your new battlegrounds await:

* HOTEL takes the sunny splendor of a luxirous Cuban casino resort and turns it into a bullet-riddled war zone. Details like the blown casino safe and poolside bar offer some unusual cover for run-and-gunners, but thanks to the high vantage points at opposite ends, it's also a great map for snipers.

* Why not visit the ZOO? The big cats and deadly reptiles left this abandoned Russian animal park long ago, but the overgrown, dilapidated facility still plays host to the world's most dangerous game. Hide below in the bear lair or snipe from above on the monorail track - you've got the run of the place.

* If you're looking for a slice of classic Americana, check out the small-town motel and diner near the ambushed CONVOY. The freeway overpass has collapsed, leaving a missile stranded above and rubble littered below - not to mention a pre-fab house, apparently in transit by truck when the attack hit, now toppled on its side in ruins. Talk about trailer trash.

* STOCKPILE looks like an ordinary town in remote Russia...until you find the warhead hidden in the building in the center of town. Use switches to slide the huge steel doors up and down - good for restricting access during objective-based games.

* Last but not least, CALL OF THE DEAD goes meta on zombie lore itself with a unique setup: Cinema's zombie godfather George A. Romero is making his latest undead epic - starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robert Englund, Michael Rooker, and Danny Trejo - only to have a real zombie apocalypse break out, infecting the director himself and causing him to stalk you throughout the level. All the stars performed their roles with full motion capture and voice-over, so when you and three friends take on wave after wave of the zombie horde, you'll do so as some of Hollywood's most famous monster mashers. Proof positive that there's a zombie killer in all of us.

Activision has announced that the PS3 DLC will arrive on PSN on Friday, June 10.

And that's not all - a double XP weekend will run from launch until close of play on Sunday, June 12

US & EU PlayStation Network Maintenance Today

Call of Duty Console

PlayStation Network will be inaccessible for several hours for maintenance


Message from Sony Computer Entertainment :

The PlayStation Network will be inaccessible for several hours for maintenance.

The server maintenance performed at this time represents a crucial step in the full restoration for PSN, including the PlayStation Store.

During this maintenance period, users will be unable to sign in to PSN, though those that are already logged in should be able to remain online.

Resumption of full PlayStation Network service is still on track for this week in most regions.

Thank you once again for your patience as we work to return PSN to the highest level of service.

MW3 - New Survival Mode outlined

More Modern Warfare 3 Spec Ops Details

The Spec Ops mode in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 will feature a new progressive ranking system, online matchmaking system and leaderboards.

A new Survival Mode was also detailed, taking place on special Modern Warfare 3's maps. Players will fend off never-ending waves of enemies, including attack dogs, suicide bomber dogs, and eventually kamikaze soldiers.

"You definitely have to change up your strategy as the enemy changes up," said Fourzerotwo from Infinity Ward.

"Obviously how you fight the kamikaze dudes is different from how you fight the normal dudes and how you fight a dog is different from a dude and how you fight juggernauts, they are not only big and armored, so they will just brute force come at you. But they each have their own way of being taken out effectively."

Modern Warfare 3 for the Xbox, PS3 and PC will be released, worldwide, on November 8, 2011.

Sony plugs new PSN security hole

Call of Duty Console

Sony plugs new PSN security hole

Sony Corp. said it plugged a new online security hole that could have allowed hackers to gain control of accounts on its PlayStation Network and Qriocity entertainment services.

The company said it temporarily took down a web page that allows people to reset passwords for their PlayStation Network and Qriocity accounts from personal computers after it learned of the security hole, which could allow someone with an account holder's date of birth and email address to gain control of those accounts by resetting their passwords.

In a statement, a Sony spokesman described the security hole as a "URL exploit", which could allow a hacker to trick the company's password reset page by manipulating the uniform resource locator, or address, for the web page. After gaining control of someone's PlayStation Network account, a hacker could make purchases on the service with any funds stored in the account, but couldn't gain access to a customers' credit cards, according to Sony.

No Double XP for Playstation 3 Gamers Asia Region

Call of Duty Console

Playstation Network is still off line in several Asian countries, regions and Japan

The recent Call of Duty: Black Ops double XP weekend got missed by PS3 owners due to the PSN downtime.

So this weekend it is double XP weekend again and Playstation 3 only.

Treyarch's Community manager Josh Olin said that the Double XP event is intended to "make up" for the recent double XP weekend missed.


But Playstation Network is still off line in several Asian countries, regions and Japan !

And as the BIG PSN Outage became yesterday's news; Sony even doesn't bother to post some updates on WHEN PSN Asia Region will be restored...

It is a nice gesture from Treyarch; but this is also an insult for the thousands of CoD: Black Ops players from the Asian region.

When will this forgotten group of CoD gamers be able to play online again ?
