Glitching in Modern Warfare 2? Make sure you do it on the PS3, because Sony isn't really concerned. Do it on the Xbox 360, however, and Microsoft will slap your account with a temporary ban.

The "javelin glitch" is a new exploit discovered in Modern Warfare 2 that allows players to essentially become a human bomb by using a piece of equipment in a way it is not meant to be used. Xbox Live's Stephen Toulouse told everyone to "play fair" and warned that violators will be suspended.

Meanwhile, Sony has stated that it will not take Microsoft's lead while Infinity Ward works on patching out the exploit. No reasons were given for Sony's inaction, a rep merely stated: "I don't believe we are banning people for using the glitch."

Interesting that Microsoft would be so keen to work with Infinity Ward, while Sony doesn't seem bothered. Perhaps a statement on the closer relationship Infinity Ward has with Xbox Live? Sony really ought to work on those relations if it wants PSN to be a viable competitor.

Okay, this Advanced Warfare Xbox One controller looks rad

Catch that Call of Duty: Advance Warfare Xbox One bundle earlier today? It's a custom system that includes the game and a 1TB HDD for $499.99. The controller is also custom designed, and if you were like me wishing it was available separately well good news! It is. Amazon has it for $64.99.more

Watch the Golden Gate Bridge get destroyed in Advanced Warfare

Ghosts was a giant disappointment but man Advanced Warfare is looking really good. I'm mostly interested in the multiplayer at this point, but the single-player looks like it will be worth it this time around too.  The latest video for the new Call of Duty focuses on San Francisco, showing off a chase and the eventual destruction of the famous Golden Gate Bridge. more

Sierra is back! New King's Quest and, uh, Geometry Wars coming

Well look at that. Sierra is back from the dead. Activision is reviving the label, with a focus on indie development. It'll host new IPs and re-imaginings of beloved classics. In this case there's a new King's Quest coming in...more
