If you were asked to guess what the best selling game of 2010 was you’d likely plump for CoD: Black Ops, and you’d be right. But how do you think it fared against the likes of the Avatar and Toy Story 3 DVDs or albums from Rihanna and Take That? Well, it outsold them all.

3D’s all the rage in Hollywood these days, but here in Videogame Land, the goofy-looking red-blue tech of tomorrow hasn’t quite caught on. So, what’s the deal? Well, according to EA Sports head honcho Peter Moore, we need only look to sports for the answers.

Joystiq‘s posted a new trailer of Avatar’s multiplayer mode, and it’s quite a sight. Each of the game’s areas has the visible light spectrum working overtime, resulting in a highly attractive color palette.
And then it all goes boom. When pitted against a race of ten foot-tall, teleporting blue creatures that are essentially Nightcrawler from X-Men, humanity lets loose with its explosives supply. Or at least, that’s what this trailer seems to suggest.
See the full thing after the break.

We’ve always wished the giant robot that appears in the background of our XBL friends list could be our avatar, but this is the next best thing.
CVG‘s reporting that your Avatar can now disguise itself as a robot in disguise. Megatron, Optimus Prime, and Bumblebee helmets are available, as are a number of Transformers-themed shirts. Do not, however, mistake this for good news. All of this shiny new gear is stamped with Michael Bay’s assuredly ostentatious signature. No retro-chic here.
Which is really a shame. The lack of an 80′s-style Optimus Prime helmet is the only thing keeping our Avatar from perfectly resembling its creator. Oh well. Maybe next time.

Ubisoft has released a second developer diary for Avatar: The Game titled Beautiful But Deadly.
In it, James Cameron and the development team discuss the landscape of Pandora and the danger and beauty that lurks within it.
Apparently, the world is its own living, breathing character in a sense with its bioluminescence and otherworldly creatures and you can experience it as either a Human or Navi, seeing both sides of the situation.
Game’s out in December for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Ubisoft has released the first developer diary for Avatar: The Game.
In it, you will discover things about the Avatar universe you didn’t know – if you knew anything to being with – and how it intersects with the film by James Cameron.
It’s a bit sparse on gameplay, but instead has Cameron and the developers chatting about the work that went into it, and hopefully the next diary in the series will show us a bit more of the game itself.
Game’s expected to be released close to the same time the movie’s out, in November, for DS, PC, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360.

Avatar: The Game for PSP will be able to communicate with the PS3 version or the game, according to reports.
Sounds like another Ubisoft title you may have heard about. Assassin’s Creed 2.
Anyway, one of the features is the ability to transfer “Effort Points” from PSP game to PS3.
According to the October issue of PlayStation:The Official Magazine, the PSP version has players taking on the roll of a Na’vi warrior and these “Effort Points” transferable through both games will give your characters a bit of a boost.
More should be revealed when the new issue lands.

Ubisoft marketing boss Murray Pannell is just a teensy bit excited about the upcoming game based on James Cameron’s Avatar. He’s even gone and mentioned he-who’s-become-a-household-name, Harry Potter, alongside Cameron’s untested opus.
“Avatar looks set to be a world-changing kind of cinema given its pedigree and elements like the 3D,” Pannell told MCV.
“It reminds me of my experience at EA, working on the original Harry Potter game – which was an incredible entertainment phenomenon.”
“Avatar has movie director James Cameron, and Potter also had one person ultimately in charge – JK Rowling, who everyone was terrified of disappointing. That can give you real focus,” he added.
Inspiring. More through the link.

Avatar: The Game will support 3D effects on televisions that have the technology.
Good for you if you have the TV, but if you want to play it on Xbox 360 you will need one that has an HDMI-out.
According to the game’s brand manager Luc Duchaine, the game will require 1080p resolution to see the 3D effects, and on 360 this is through the HDMI port.
Wii users will just have to be content with 2D, because 3D is not an option for it. Duchaine said that the only way 3D would have been accomplished on the Nintendo console was with anaglyph 3D combined with those lovely red and blue glasses.
However, Duchaine said that “anaglyph doesn’t offer a quality image, and quality is synonymous with the James Cameron name.”
Well, yeah. Cameron’s king of the world ya know.

Ubisoft has announced that the same actors who lent their voices to James Cameron’s film, Avatar, will reprise their roles in the game.
Sigourney Weaver plays Dr. Grace Augustine in the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and PC versions; Michelle Rodriguez voices helicopter pilot Trudy Chacon in the PC, PS3, and 360 versions which feature bad guy Col. Quaritch, played by Stephen Lang.
Giovanni Ribisi will only appear in the Wii version as Parker Selfridge.
A trailer for the game will be released next month on August 21 but there’s no word on whether it will contain the actors’ voices.
