    In an intresting interview with Australian Gamer Robert Bowling was quizzed about Cross Platform Play, and whether Infinity Ward was looking to feature it in their future games.

    To this Robert replied: "We [Infinity Ward] take things one game a time. There’s no Cross platform play in Modern Warfare 3. Right now, we’re completely focused on that [MW3], and we’ll look at it [Cross Platform Play]."

    He further added, "I think it’s something cool that a lot of people are doing well."

    Bowling might be referring to Portal 2's PS3-PC co-op feature which worked perfectly for all, and Valve has now announced that Counter Strike: Global Offensive ill feature cross-platform play between PC, PS3, and Mac.

    However we are yet to see a game that put PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers against each other.

  • EA: We want to take Activision's 90% shooter market share down to 70%

    The war between EA and Activision is known to everyone, and there's no secret that EA is going after COD. Now in the latest episode, EA has claimed that the firm want to take Activision's 90% share of the shooter market down to 70%.

    EA vs Activision

    Check out below what EA's Jens Uwe Intat said:

    "We will give Activison a hard time in the space. And we have done it when we won back the football category from PES. That’s what we are doing in the shooter space. One of my favourite sayings is ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’. We might not do it Day One, but we are going to take a decent amount share from Activision. In broad numbers, Activision has 90 per cent of the shooter market, and we want to see that go down to 70. I would be even happier if they were left with 60 per cent."

    No one will doubt if i say EA has played a smart game right from the first day. If you go on and on comparing your product with the most popular one available in the market, it will definitely stick in consumers mind, in short "FREE MARKETING".
