Pachter: Activision forced Nintendo to create Wii U Pro Controller

Right before E3 2012 kicked off, Nintendo revealed the Pro Controller for the Wii U, something which a lot of gamers (including myself) were happy to see. According to Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter, the Wii U's Pro Controller might might not exist today were it not for the insistence of Activision, which said it would not be putting Call of Duty games on the Wii U if Nintendo didn't give developers a more traditional controller to work with. Thus, the Wii U Pro Controller was born, or at least that's the way the story goes when Michael Pachter tells it.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II theme song composed by Trent Reznor

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is probably going to be the biggest game of the year, so it's only appropriate that Activision finds some big names to attach to the game's development. One of these big names is Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor, who has composed the theme song for the highly-anticipated military shooter. Apparently, the tune is an "aggressively sounding" rock arrangement, which should fit well with Black Ops II's gritty gameplay and style.

Treyarch doesn’t even know who’s developing Black Ops on Vita

As part of Sony's all-encompassing push to prove the PlayStation Vita's relevance at last month's E3 trade show, it made sure to mention that a special version of Call of Duty: Black Ops would be making its way to the portable console. However, aside from a brief tease, we didn't learn much about the game. But we can't feel too bad, because apparently even the company that's in charge of the Call of Duty franchise doesn't know much.

Can you imagine a world where the best experience for the newest Call of Duty game exists on a Nintendo console?

Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 might head to Wii U

Forget the new touchscreen controller. Forget the fact that Nintendo will finally offer HD graphics in a video game console. And you can even forget the new online community Miiverse. All of those things are irrelevant if the Wii U doesn't manage to bring significant third-party support and blockbuster franchises that have helped deliver success to its rival consoles.

Treyarch Call of Duty Black Ops II doesn’t need new engine

The next version of Call of Duty will run on the same old engine as many of its predecessors. The Call of Duty franchise has been running on the IW3.0 engine since 2007, with the exception of Modern Warfare 2, which used IW4.0. But don't expect a major under-the-hood overhaul for Black Ops II. But that doesn't mean it won't still be an amazing experience, the developer says.
