Activision released the trailer for their next Call of Duty game 2 days earlier than planned. The big reveal was planned for this upcoming Sunday, but a news outlet leaked the info early so Activision decided to just release the trailer now.

Activision has announced that their Call of Duty Elite service is shutting down completely this Friday, February 28th, 2014. COD Elite was used for Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2 but was phased out for the Call of Duty mobile app being used for COD Ghosts. After this Friday, you will no longer be able to access stats for MW3 and BO2 on mobile devices or the Elite website. However, you can still access those stats in the games themselves.
If you want an extra incentive to use the Elite app or website one last time, here’s one. Any users who have logged into COD Elite after January 1st, 2014 will receive 2 hours of Double XP in COD Ghosts (at some point in the future). So, if you want that free Double XP, I suggest you login to the Elite app or callofduty.com/elite.
Activision has provided a Shutdown FAQ with more information.

I was asked to write up my impressions on the Xbox One system so far. I have owned the system since last Thursday when I got it a day early. However, I did not actually turn it on until midnight Friday so I wouldn’t get banned from Xbox Live. Here are my thoughts on the system so far and the Kinect sensor that is included.
Call of Duty: Ghosts released to the world last week. Activision and Infinity Ward celebrated by turning on Double XP for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC players. But what about the people waiting for just the next-generation consoles? Will they get Double XP as well? Activision hasn’t forgotten them and has announced a Next-Gen Double XP weekend for those players as well.
