Details on PS3 COD4 week – 18th to 25th

Are you a Playstation user and a Call of Duty 4 fan?

Rejoice, as fourzerotwo has today, as promised, announced details of the PS3 COD4 celebrations.

Here is what to expect:

Kicking off on Thursday the 18th (through until the 25th), the Variety Map Pack will be reduced to $4.99US. If you don’t own this already, this is your time to pick it up. There is no excuse.

Make sure the dogs have enough food for the weekend, because from Friday through to Sunday, we’ll be earning Double XP, you’ll also have a chance to play against the IW dev team on Friday (from noon to 4PM, pacific time) – this is the best time to frag them, although the guys will be on and off all week long.

Be sure to add the following PSN IDs to your friends list or send us invites if you see us online:
Fourzerotwoiw
COD4qaBurx
COD4qaEd
COD4artist_OLO
COD4qaNairb
COD4studioVince 

So be sure to keep those (very) few dollars free if you haven’t picked up the Variety Map Pack yet, and be responsable – tell a friend before disappearing for the weekend.

Playing on Playstation 3

Red Dead Revolver - I paid about $1000 for my launch model PS3, so I guess it's time I get some use out of that emotion chip crammed inside. I remember Red Dead Revolver looking rather good when it was released, and despite the low resolution and odd blurring (that I attribute to playing on a HD set) the game holds up well. It looks good despite these graphical limitations because the art direction is so precise and awesome. And it isn't just the art direction, the music, dialogue and set design (for some reason, set seems a more fitting word than level) all work in tandem to recreate an iconic Wild West atmosphere. Red Dead Revolver doesn’t aim to recreate life in the Wild West, it allows our imagination to take over and populates the locale with legendary men and their legendary stories.

Playing on iPhone

edge - Well I never thought I'd consider playing a game on iPhone as actually gaming, but edge has turned me around. The game is built for the iPhone. Sure, it could be ported, but the elegance of what has been created is astounding, it boggles the mind and makes me wonder what amazing gems we'd receive if current gen consoles weren't clones of eachother.

Playing on PC

Sins of a Solar Empire, Demigod, Generals - Zero Hour - It may be a temporary effect as I slowly reintroduce the PC into my gaming diet, but it seems every title I’m excited to play on the platform is either a strategy game, or a cheap indie game. PC gaming isn’t dead, it’s just restricted to titles that require complex input or a pointing device, and games that couldn't be developed or distributed on other platforms. I guess that’s part of the reason the AppStore is so far a success, there were a lot of indie devs stuck on PC for lack of a better alternative.
