Jan 26th 2012 11:53PM @covertpetersen That is one of the new maps, called Liberation.

Modern Warfare 3 Elite maps locked to one profile on one console (Joystiq)

Jan 26th 2012 7:25PM @lazerbyte If you go to someone's house and log in to your XBL account, you will be able to download the Elite maps and play them on your friend's console. However, if you sign out, the maps will no longer be playable. This is normal, and fits with the standard XBL DLC licensing system.

First Modern Warfare 3 DLC drops January 24 on Xbox [update: first screen] (Joystiq)

Maybe that's because they didn't develop any payment processing systems; they just piggy-backed off of the existing XBL and PSN payment systems.

Infinity Ward issuing Modern Warfare 3 bans that last 5000 days (Joystiq)

Dec 15th 2011 6:19PM There's a glitch that allows you to get unlimited Prestige Tokens after you prestige. People who exploit that glitch are being hit with the 5000 day bans.

How Beachhead is putting Call of Duty: Elite back together again (Joystiq)

Nov 14th 2011 1:50AM @Lerkero I have to believe it costs too much to scale for initial demand, so they just scale for average demand and hope for the best.

They know the demand for the service will spike massively in the first few days, but that ongoing demand will be much lower. But building scale for a massive spike in users that will only last one or two days is really expensive, so they only scale for ongoing demand. Then, the game comes out and they ride out the spike in demand, having saved a boatload by not spending all that money to handle a 2 day spike.

I bet even now, the beachhead guys are sitting around waiting for everyone to forget about Elite, so demand goes down to predicted normal levels. Then, they'll flip the switch and say "hey guys look! Everything's fixed!"

Editorial -- Nintendo's creeping doom: how the company came to misplace $926 million (Joystiq)

Oct 27th 2011 7:36PM Anyone could have predicted this. For far too long (dating back to the N64 days), Nintendo has relied on its Big Three franchises: Mario, Metroid and Zelda, to move units. Now, a whole generation of gamers are growing up who don't see those franchises as anything special, and in fact, they are rather primitive in their execution.

Without those Big Three franchises, what, exactly, does Nintendo have? Shitty graphics, no HD support, crap online service, no other entertainment options (except Netflix), an overly bulky portable device whose features are handily eclipsed by any mid-range smartphone (which you can get for $149-$199).

The market Nintendo was serving--casual players--is now being quite well served by the iOS App Store. For them, Mario, Metroid and Zelda have been replaced by Angry Birds, Angry Birds and... well... Angry Birds.
