Call of Duty is the Most Broken Multiplayer Out: 76 Killstreak in 60 Seconds Video

FPSWin reports on an informative video surfacing from the YouTube Call of Duty community. Many hardcore gamers in the FPS genre have noticed for a long time now that the COD series is becoming, or to some extent has always been, a truly watered down formula. The main purpose of this video, which was created by iFen0m, is to show the broken down map design found in the latest COD game, Modern Warfare 3. Check out the video for yourself. Be on the lookout for more from our own RealGamerNewz archives soon!

Microsoft Buys Video Search Company for Upcoming Xbox 360 On-Demand Video Service

Like how your cable box glitches and struggles to change channels without latency? Oh. Well Microsoft doesn’t either apparently. They are working with integration on their newly purchased company VideoSurf (rumored to have cost them $100 million) to enable a Bing video search to work over their newly announced Internet Protocol Television solution. To translate that into english: your Xbox 360 can become your cable box with this new service, hypothetically.

GamaSutra also identifies a number of “40 major entertainment partners, including Comcast, Verizon, HBO, Syfy and Bravo.”

We will find out when Microsoft brings out their next dashboard update and entertainment service upgrades what this is really going to be like. For now we wait and watch Netflix teetering on a crash and burn if Microsoft can knock this out of the park for Xbox Live.

It was only a matter of time for some one to approach the cable companies for programming in a streaming, on-demand fashion, but will it be enough to compete with the industry-leading Blu-Ray standard and the PlayStation Store’s superior number of major hollywood film publishers?

This list is based on confirmed release dates only at the time of this writing. To be announced titles that have not received the “2011” official statement have not been included. Many titles have been delayed to 2011 and will not be featured on this list since this list concerns itself only with the year of 2011.

Downloadable-only games have not been included. Release dates may be subject to change. “Console exclusives” that can be purchased on PC or are ported from Mobile platforms are not included for consideration on this list as they are not truly exclusive since they can be purchased on another platform.

If any truly exclusive titles (not found on ANY other platform) are missing, leave a comment, but don’t expect it to get added to the list unless it is completely legit with a “2011” official statement, retailer placeholder dates and assumptions do not count. All rules for this list apply to each console.
