Call of Duty WWII Box Art Revealed

The box art for the next Call of Duty has been revealed so check it out above. The box art confirms that the game will go back to the series roots showcasing a WWII theme. As we can see from the box art above, PS4 owners will be getting new content 30 days before others.  I am very happy with this change and cannot wait to see what the developer will do.  Last years infinite warfare brought gamers to space but it was a bit disappointing for players. 

I am eager for this… Are you?

Nintendo Switch Will Not Have VC At Launch

It has been confirmed that the Nintendo Switch will not have the virtual console available in time for its launch next week.   Nintendo has confirmed via a press release that “Virtual Console games will not be available on Nintendo Switch at launch. We will share more information in the future”.

I think this is a major missed opportunity for the company and I hope we hear more regarding the subject soon.  The Nintendo Switch will launch next week and we will have full coverage for the new system.
