[GAMING] THE ‘CALL OF DUTY’ FRANCHISE CLAIMS 7 SPOTS ON THE TOP 10 MOST SOLD TITLES OF PAST DECADE (IN US)

NPD Games is specialised in insights and analyses on the video games industry and use to make the data public.

Since we’ve just entered the ’20s, the statitics for the ’10s on the US market are compiled and THE KING AND HEAVYWEIGHTER is ‘Grand Theft Auro V’.

The most interesting part is that seven of the first ten spots belongs to the ‘Call of Duty’- franchise. All four ‘Black Ops’ titles are there, as well as ‘Modern Warfare 3’, ‘Ghosts’ and ‘Call of Duty WWII’.

There however more ‘Call of Duty’ games in the second half of the TOP 20: ‘Advanced Warfare’ claiming the 11th spot, the ‘Modern Warfare’- reboot (released on October 24th 2019) as 12th and ‘Infinte Warfare’ is 15th. This means that ALL of the COD- titles in the past decade made it to the top.

Check out the list by yourself below and compare it to the decade preceding it:

If you’ve got Hulu and Spotify, it doesn’t get much better than this deal. Just head over to your account on Spotify (it has to be in a web browser, not on the Spotify app) and you’ll see the option to add Hulu to your subscription for no extra cost.

OBSERVE!!!
Same sources claim that the HULU subscription bundled with a Premium Spotify account is the option that comes with ads ($5.99). Also, there seem to be no strings attached, other than users should claim the package within three months from now.

NEW POSTER FOR ‘US’

Synopsis:
A mother and father take their kids to their beach house, expecting to enjoy time with friends, but their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some visitors arrive uninvited.

US release date: March 22.

‘ROCKY 1-5’, ‘THE TERMINATOR’ AND MORE ARE FREE ON YOUTUBE (US ONLY)

A lot of people use to stream movies and it can be done in different ways: either legal or illegal. I pay for Netflix, go to cinema a couple of times during the year and buy 5 – 15 Blu Ray. Still, I miss some BLOCKBUSTERS and other users have not the same ability: to pay for EVERYTHING they wish to view. There are simple too many streaming services and you can’t have it all with just one of them.

Youtube has however a couple of movies streaming for free as I write this post. Unfortunately, it applies only for US residents. ROCKY 1-5, TERMINATOR and other classics as well. Check the short list below:

All Dogs Go to Heaven
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Hackers
Legally Blonde
The Man in the Iron Mask
Night of the Living Dead
Nosferatu
Overboard
Rocky
Rocky II
Rocky III
Rocky IV
Rocky V
The Terminator
Zookeeper

NerdTV: Who Owns The Media In US

A video on media ownership in the U.S, but i suspect all over the west. Sumner Redstone real name is Sumner Murray Rothstein owns CBS Corporation, Viacom, MTV Networks, BET, and the film studio Paramount Pictures, and are equal partners in MovieTickets.com.. Fox news owner Rupert Murdoch also owns many papers world wide. TV, news papers are owned more and by fewer people. A concentration of news papers and media into a few people hands allows what is happening now in the west, a propaganda media that promotes only what thier agenda says to promote. Back in 1983, approximately 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the United States. Today, ownership of the news media has been concentrated in the hands of just six incredibly powerful media corporations. These corporate behemoths control most of what we watch, hear and read every single day. They own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many of our favorite websites. Sadly, most Americans don’t even stop to think about who is feeding them the endless hours of news and entertainment that they constantly ingest. Most Americans don’t really seem to care about who owns the media. But they should. The truth is that each of us is deeply influenced by the messages that are constantly being pounded into our heads by the mainstream media. The average American watches 153 hours of television a month. In fact, most Americans begin to feel physically uncomfortable if they go too long without watching or listening to something. Sadly, most Americans have become absolutely addicted to news and entertainment and the ownership of all that news and entertainment that we crave is being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands each year.

The six corporations that collectively control U.S. media today are Time Warner, Walt Disney, Viacom, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., CBS Corporation and NBC Universal. Together, the “big six” absolutely dominate news and entertainment in the United States. But even those areas of the media that the “big six” do not completely control are becoming increasingly concentrated. For example, Clear Channel now owns over 1000 radio stations across the United States. Companies like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft are increasingly dominating the Internet.

But it is the “big six” that are the biggest concerns. When you control what Americans watch, hear and read you gain a great deal of control over what they think. They don’t call it “programming” for nothing.

#MOVIES & #TVSERIES: #Netflix Raises Its Price For Subscription

image

Yesterday, Netflix updated its website with a new price for subscription fees.

The price was raised with 1 dollar to $9.99 a month. There is still the alternative to a $7.99 a month but that kind of subscription won’t allow streaming in HD nor simultaneous streaming. The $9.99 package allows streaming to two screens at once.

This change applies to the United States,  Canada and Latin America and comes after a similar adjustment for Europe back in August.

Current subscribers will not see their fees increased for a year forward.
