Battlefield 3 Co-op Detailed

Battlefield 3 as we know it is definitely going to be bigger and better than it's predecessors and will compete with all-time favourites Call of Duty series Modern Warfare 3. In a recent PlayStation blog post by Tommy Rydling, junior product manager at DICE, he revealed that the mechanics used in BF3's co-op is the "perfect blend between the strong narrative from single player and the open-ended action from multiplayer", explaining that they aimed to "create a totally new flavor of Battlefield"
"Co-op follows the same philosophy as our award-winning multiplayer game mechanics. Teamwork is practically never forced upon you, but working together will make things much easier and — more importantly — lead to victory."

Crytek Has No Immediate Interest In PS Vita

Just a quick question, if you could only own one gadget, would you get the iPad, or PSP? Personally, I choose the iPad and i'm pretty sure most of you would agree too. Well, Crytek recently said that it believes that dedicated handheld game consoles like the PSP is "losing ground" to the vast range of tablets out there in the market. Reason being that unlike tablets and smartphones, these consoles have limited functions.

Facebook Working On Changes to News Feed

Okay this should be something great, but it actually kinda sucks.
