Where is the industry headed in the Next Generation of gaming? How will this generation end? What strategies will the “Big 3” take over to them from this generation and what new ones will they employ going forward? RealGamerNewz tackles these issues and more in a larger-than-life podcast consisting of 3 parts. Crank it up while you’re getting your game on or while you hide from your boss at work.
We will also get into the detailed debate over whether or not Microsoft can overtake Sony in the Next Generation as the complete market leader. In addition to this we discuss what Sony and Microsoft need to do to improve their game plan going into the future. Welcome to the “Where Is The Industry Headed?” Podcast.
Will it be the PlayStation 4 or The Next Xbox Experience? Who will claim the throne?
Worldwide industry source GamaSutra reports that Steam has been hacked via an announcement made by Gabe Newell directly. While the cause of this breach and the exact amount of effected accounts remains unseen, it is confirmed that Credit Card information (and more) has been compromised. Steam makes up a huge segment of the PC Gaming market and is a newfound mecca of gamers across the globe.
Here are the official statements:
“Valve’s games-on-demand Steam service has been hacked, the company said Thursday, saying that a database containing private user information has been stolen.
That information includes user names, hashed and salted passwords, game purchases, email addresses, billing addresses and encrypted credit card information, according to an email sent by Valve managing director Gabe Newell to Gamasutra.”
Robert Bowling has announced via public forum that Modern Warfare 3 players who find themselves cheating, glitching, exploiting, and most of all “boosting” will be subject to being banned from the game soon. The first round of what could be a never ending wave of player bans is said to be rolling out in the near future. As for how exactly they planned to stop cheaters in the first place, this is where things get interesting.
Whereas we were told in the past that Treyarch was able to learn from Modern Warfare 2’s mistakes meaning that Black Ops wouldn’t have the same exploit problems. The Modern Warfare 3 team have painted an entirely different picture as to their approach to the problem. In fact they are relying on banning rather than coding away the exploits, or so their public statements would lead us to believe.
The attitude that you can’t ever stop hackers and cheaters, only hope to control them, is a very logic-based approach with widespread support. We had just hoped that possibly this conversation of cheaters and hackers numbering in the thousands and millions would have been over 3 or 4 CODs ago.
In this image discovered by FingerSports you will see what is either a innocent mistake or Walmart take to desperate measures to move more units of Modern Warfare 3. The way we see the Call of Duty: MW3 poster directly above the Battlefield 3 banner and showcase of MW3 copies seems to be a pretty obvious mistake that couldn’t have gone unnoticed by accident, but who are we to judge.

In North America and the United Kingdom we are already getting back launch day numbers for Call of Duty 8 (also known as Modern Warfare 3). Despite the widespread outcry from gamers on internet forums throughout the recent years the COD franchise has once again set itself on the path to making history.
In just 24 hours (according to Gamasutra) MW3 has sold 6.5 Million Units in these regions. We await the full launch week sales numbers which will likely be equally impressive as these from a business standpoint.

During the release day Hitman of RealGamerNewz tests out the riot class shotgun in the new game mode “Kill Confirmed”. In Kill Confirmed you will play like a regular deathmatch but with a slight twist. Only the kills you manage to retrieve dog tags for count! Anytime you die you leave tags on the ground as well. Your team mates can save you by grabbing them before the enemy, or you can all die in a pile and provide a huge dog tag reward for killing sprees.
