CoD Ghosts, Advanced Warfare blocks PS4 Share Play for now

CoD Ghosts, Advanced Warfare blocks PS4 Share Play for now

Sony has just released its latest system update for the PlayStation 4 and it has poured a lot of focus on the "virtual couch" features of the new Share Play. But if you're quite excited to let others view your screen, or convince others to play your game for you, better calm down a bit and take stock of your games. Unsurprisingly, not all titles support the share-your-controller/screen feature, with some actively blocking it out. Call of Duty: Ghost and Call of Duty Advanced Warfare happens to be two of them.

Call of Duty didn’t kill Titanfall: it was already dead

Call of Duty didn’t kill Titanfall: it was already dead

It's an absolute tragedy, the number of players that are playing Titanfall right this minute. It should be a good indicator that the game is in dire need of players that the game has been reduced to $19.99 for both PC and Xbox One - a good deal, by any measure. Unless you consider the possibility that you might not have enough players online to play the game. Is this Call of Duty's fault? Not by a long shot.

Former dictator’s Call of Duty lawsuit heats up: creative freedom at stake

The alternate history genre is a popular one, and has been around for as long as humans have been making up stories. Historical figures and events are often used in fictional works that take a creative license when it comes to storylines and depictions. Abraham Lincoln, for example, was never a vampire hunter, but that didn't stop a movie about that idea from being created. This type of creative freedom could be at risk, however, if a former dictator's lawsuit against Activision over his portrayal in Call of Duty: Black Ops II succeeds.

Activision mulling over starting its own movie studio

Activision mulling over starting its own movie studio

Some games graphics, especially cutscenes, have started to look so real that sometimes it feels as if you're actually watching a live action film. Sometimes it makes you wonder why these aren't turned into movies themselves. Fret not, true believer, as Activision is said to be wondering about that too, and might actually do something about it as well.
