    Sony's PlayStation 3 console has shipped more than 70 million units since its launch in 2006, the company has announced.
    As well as hitting the impressive landmark on November 4th, the firm said it had also shipped 15 million PlayStation Move controllers as of November 11th.

    Microsoft recently revealed that it had sold over 70 million Xbox 360 consoles, although both this and the PS3 are dwarfed by sales of the Wii, which has sold around 100 million units.
    Despite the impressive life-time sales, all the console manufacturers are now gearing up for the next-generation of systems.
    Nintendo's Wii U is set to launch on November 18th in the US and November 30th in Europe, whilst Microsoft and Sony have yet to officially announce the existence of a new Xbox or a PS4.

    Latest Call of Duty beats Modern Warfare 3 first day sales by $100 million

    The year's biggest gaming blockbuster Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has garnered more than $500 million in sales in its first 24 hours.
    The exact number of individual game sales has yet to be revealed, but the money generated beats previous record-setter Modern Warfare 3, which had accrued $400m in its first day of release.

    It remains to be seen whether Black Ops 2 will also smash past Modern Warfare's five days sales which generated the title $775 million, even breaking through the $1 billion barrier just 16 days after release
    “With first day sales of over half a billion dollars worldwide, we believe Call of Duty is the biggest entertainment launch of the year for the fourth year in a row,” said Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick.
    “Life-to-date sales for the Call of Duty franchise have exceeded worldwide theatrical box office receipts for “Harry Potter” and “Star Wars,” the two most successful movie franchises of all time. Given the challenged macro-economic environment, we remain cautious about the balance of 2012 and 2013.”

    Thieves have taken $1.5 million worth of iPad Mini’s in a raid at JFK Airport.
    According to the New York Post, the heist took place in the same cargo unit that was the target of the 1978 Lufthansa heist that was immortalised in the movie ‘Goodfellas’.
    The criminals struck just before midnight and used one of the airport’s own forklift trucks to load two pallets of the devices on to a truck. However, they drove off leaving behind three more pallets after being challenged by an airport employee returning from break.
    The iPads had apparently just arrived from China and were awaiting shipment across the US.

    Nintendo confirmed this summer that the Wii U would offer a YouTube app in addition to a number of other streaming video options, but it didn't have any news for existing Wii users at the time. That's now changed, though, with Google announcing today that it's finally made a YouTube app available for the original Wii after all these years. As you can see, it sports a suitably simple interface designed with the Wii Remote in mind, and it'll give you access to all the basic YouTube features you'd expect, including the channels you've subscribed to and other specialized sections. The app itself is also built using WebM, which Google says makes it the largest deployment of WebM video to date. Unfortunately, it's only available to Wii users in the US for the time being, but Google says it will be bringing the app to more countries in the "coming months."

    Modern Warfare 4 will be Call of Duty’s next offering, according to alleged voiceover leaks from the game.
    Siliconera has word from anonymous sources that voice acting work is already underway in Los Angeles for a Call of Duty title that’s said to carry on the Modern Warfare arc.
    Given Activision has two separate developers for the series and knowing the franchise’s history, it’s likely the game will see release sometime before the end of next year.
    Call of Duty’s latest release Black Ops II came out earlier this week, and is already setting launch records.

    Ten years ago Microsoft embarked on an ambitious venture to marry the worlds of the internet and console gaming.
    And it’s no exaggeration to say that the seeds it planted have gone on to transform the world of gaming.
    What began as a 56K modem on Sega’s (and let’s not forget, also to some extent Microsoft’s) Dreamcast was truly realised with Xbox. And how Xbox Live has evolved. Starting out as a way to standardise online play, the network has gone on to become one of the world’s most active and lucrative commercial hubs and is the de facto standard when it comes to online console functionality.
    Here’s a look at its road to glory:
    November 2002: Xbox Live, a service allowing gamers to access a range of digital media and play against each other online, is made available on the Xbox.
    December 2004: The Xbox Live Arcade service is launched on the Xbox game console in a disc form available in bundles, on its own and in several issues of Official Xbox Magazine.
    November 2005: XBLA relaunched on the Xbox 360 as a service integrated into the system’s main dashboard.
    March 2006: Three million downloads made on XBLA.
    January 2007: 20 million downloads made on XBLA.
    March 2007: Uno becomes the first XBLA title to pass one million downloads.
    November 2007: The Xbox Live Arcade Hits range is introduced. These are certain Xbox Live Arcade titles that become permanently discounted in price.
    November 2007: Xbox Live Arcade celebrates a North American milestone with the release of Screwjumper, the service’s 100th title.
    December 2007: Microsoft launches the Video Store in the UK, over a year after it debuted in the US, allowing consumers to rent and stream movies direct from the Live Arcade
    May 2008: The XBLA file size limit increases to 350MB, marking the service’s transition from providing bite size casual games to catering for more expansive, mainstream titles.
    July 2008: The first of the now annual XBLA Summer of Arcade. This saw anyone who downloaded one of the titles released during August entered into a prize draw to win 100,000 Microsoft points, a 12 Month Xbox Live Gold subscription and a 360 Elite console.
    August 2009: A system update introduces the Games on Demand area of the Marketplace, allowing players to purchase full, (formerly) boxed games digitally for the first time.
    February 2010: Marc Whitten announces Xbox Live has the 23 million-member mark.
    April 2010: Microsoft ends Xbox Live support on the original console.
    November 2010: Alongside the launch of the Kinect, Xbox Live touches down in Russia, Poland, South Africa, Greece, Hungry, Brazil, Columbia, Chile and the Czech Republic.
    December 2011: Microsoft launches the official Xbox Live app.
    March 2012: BBC iPlayer launches on Xbox Live
    May 2012: Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition breaks all XBLA sales records by notching more than 400,000 sales in 24 hours.
    September 2012: The 2GB Livae Arcade limit raises to an unannounced number with the release of Red Johnson’s Chronicles (2.68GB) and Double Dragon (2.24GB).
    November 2012: Happy Birthday Xbox Live!
