Born the son of a naval analyst and a civilian geologist, Cullen Gray was exposed to travel and the military way of life from his earliest years. After graduating from a military university with an outstanding record, he served active duty special forces before being identified by NATO as a candidate for the Limited Resources Deployment (LRD) program. The LRD initiative was considered part of the New Warfare paradigm, which theorized that costly military operations could be significantly optimized by deployment of elite “troubleshooters” able to leverage only the resources at hand to resolve high-risk or remote field missions with a high rate of success.

Activision Getting Sued For $625 million+ Dollars

It’s already hard enough for activision that the founders of Infinity Ward Vince Zampella and Jason West left the company and started their own and started a new studio called Respawn Entertainment. After that was done, employee after employee is leaving Infinity Ward, most to join Respawn Entertainment.. But now, it looks like Activision is getting sued for over $500 million dollars in court!

The  “Infinity Ward Employee Group” is 38 plaintiffs that has filed a lawsuit in the Los Angeles Superior Court, the group consists of former and even current employees of Infinity Ward. The group wants $75 million USD to $125 million in compensatory damages and $75 to $500 million in punitive damages. They claimed that Activision owed them $28 million in bonuses, and are owed another $54 million.

Activision says that they have paid their bonuses correctly and they said they “look forward to getting  judicial confirmation that our position is right.”

US PlayStation Store Updates Move to Tuesday!

Hey guys, this is just a short little post to let you know that the US Playstation Store updates will be moving to Tuesdays every week instead of the usual Thursdays. This was confirmed in this weeks episode of The PlayStation Network Informational show “Pulse.”Apparently Europe’s PlayStation Store updates are going to be moved to Wednesday’s and I’m not sure how that will work out not in congruency with the U.S. There is also no word on if PlayStation Home content updates will change either.

I’m glad they moved the Store Updating to Tuesday, because now it is the same as Xbox Live’s weekly update, and various content releases should hopefully be released at the same times. Of couse this isn’t a huge change, but i prefer it. What do you guys think?

Modern Warfare 2 DLC: Sets Xbox Live Record

Microsoft today confirmed that last week’s release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package shattered Xbox LIVE® records as more than one million gamers worldwide downloaded the new map pack from Activision and Infinity Ward in the first 24 hours alone, passing the 2.5 million mark within the first week.

Now here are some crazy and intresting numbers and facts below:

Xbox LIVE is the largest Call of Duty community of any entertainment system.  According to Microsoft, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players have invested more than 1.75 billion hours of gameplay on Xbox LIVE alone since the title’s release in November, which is equal to more than 200,000 years of gameplay playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

wow, call of duty is making some serious ca$h. Even with that overpriced $15 cost for the stimulus package it killed previous dlc records! so what are your thoughts?

Okay, so what do we have here. It looks like Crytek is really confident about their graphical job with developing Cyrisis 2 for consoles. Of course on the Playstation 3, we have already seeen some astounding visuals including Killzone 2, Uncharted 2,  Heavy Rain, and God of War 3. Despite what we all have seen and played,  the lead Playstation 3 programmer Michael Glück is confident that Crysis 2 will exceed anything that has gone before.

“With each generation of game titles on PS3, usually every 2 years, the games improve significantly in its quality, mostly showing off in graphics,” Glück told Play Magazine. “I think with Crysis 2 you will see the quality bar being set at a very high level that games will struggle to excel. We’re aiming to set a whole new benchmark with that game for all PS3 games.” ………
