Call of Duty: Black Ops sold over 7 million copies on first day of release

This game had 4.5 million pre-orders, but 7 million on the first day?! I guess it is officially "The Fastest Selling Game Of All Time"

No Xbox 3?

According to Microsoft, there will be no Xbox 3/Xbox 720. Maybe in later years, but not now.


“We’ve no plans for another Xbox,” said McGill. “You’ll continue to see us bring amazing new experiences to the console, without you having to buy a brand new console. A couple of years ago we didn’t have movies, Sky, Facebook and Twitter – now we’ve got things like Kinect.”
“We’ll continue to evolve those gaming and entertainment experiences through the power of software updates, rather than new chipsets and plastic.”
Microsoft said that the Xbox 360 will last for ten years, and it has been out for six. Microsoft's Kinect and Sony's PlayStation Move just increased the life of both consoles.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood - Downloadable Content Announced

Ubisoft announced (DLC) Download Content for Assassin's Creed BrotherhoodIt is called The Copernicus Conspiracy. It is a PlayStation 3 exclusive though, bummer for Xbox 360 fans.


The Copernicus Conspiracy DLC will focus on the titular Renaissance-era astronomer who first advocated that the earth revolves around the sun. As such, Ezio has been charged with defending Copernicus from those who wish to bury his theories--and the man himself--engaging in missions that include courier, assassination, and protection missions.
Do you think that it should be it shouldn't be an exclusive? Comment below!

Black Ops "superior" on Xbox 360

According to Microsoft, Call of Duty: Black Ops will be best on the Xbox 360, not the PlayStation 3. Stephen McGill said, "Obviously everyone knows the best place to play Black Ops is on the Xbox 360. But there are so many great games still to come out. For Q4 there hasn't been a better line-up for years." 
Do you agree with this? Post your comments!
