Missed this press release somehow, but better late than never. This weekend you can earn double XP on all platforms for Call of Duty: Black Ops. It started at 6pm yesterday and will continue through to 4pm on Monday 7th March. Don’t forget that the First Strike Content pack for PS3 is out now too.
A new patch for Black Ops is currently rolling out around the world on Xbox LIVE with the PlayStation 3 update following on March the 3rd to coincide with the release of the ‘First Strike’ DLC on PSN.
Details of the fixes below:
Gamer’s Voice have sent out a press release stating that the organisation would like to see more such dialogue between developers and the gaming community.
“The status quo clearly isn’t sustainable; the industry needs to do more to engage with gamers on the issue of bugs in games and address the causes,” writes Gamer’s Voice.
…but at least there’s a PS3 release date of March 3 for the Black Ops DLC – First Strike.
However, I’m sure that doesn’t make the 500 people losing their jobs feel any better. It must be an even tougher pill to swallow considering Activision’s latest financial results – they certainly aren’t terrible. And to further rub salt in the wounds, the publishing giant has gone and axed some fan favourites in Guitar Hero, True Crime and possibly Tony Hawk and DJ Hero.
To celebrate the release of the first DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops – First Strike – on Xbox LIVE tomorrow, this weekend will see a double XP party.

The first screens for Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops’ first DLC – First Strike – has been released. The DLC which is scheduled for release on February 1st will cost you 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360, while PS3 and PC versions are expected a month later.
To re-cap, the DLC includes four new maps and a map exclusively for Zombies.

I did not notice this but apparently after the weapons tutorial at the beginning of the game, before you get guns, you are asked by another if he has ever seen a grown man naked. Then a…
“Modern Warfare 2 smashes previous Call of Duty 4 sales record on PC… in week one!”
So what did they sell four copies of COD 4?
You would think so with all the drama, petitions, boycotts and I heard that they may have even taken one of the developer’s hamsters, held the hamster on a remote island as ransom, demanding dedicated servers.
