Sony's launched a massive DLC sale to get you ready for the weekend
The deals — which are available from the PSN right now — feature a long list of savings for titles such as Modern Warfare 2, Assassin's Creed II, Super Street Fighter IV and Grand Theft Auto IV amongst others. Apparently, Sony will be publishing more deals on June 29th, but this should little lot should keep you going until..
We've all heard the horror stories regarding Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer recently
Those still playing Activision's shooter online have found themselves susceptible to stat-hacks and various gameplay exploits. Seems like Infinity Ward's on the verge of regaining control though, with community manager Robert Bowling teasing the release of an imminent fix. Good on Infinity Ward. The studio's..
Remember Ghost from Modern Warfare 2? He was the mask toting guy voiced by the same actor as Gaz in Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
According to rumours published by ThisIsXBOX [we know! - Ed], the face-less gunner could be about to become the star of his own game. The site notes that Infinity Ward are working on a Ghost themed Call Of Duty title set before the events of Call Of Duty 4: Modern..
FIFA 11's jumped straight to the top of the UK sales charts this week, achieving the third biggest video game launch in UK history
The title overthrew its predecessor to take the crown, falling just short of records set by Modern Warfare 2 and Grand Theft Auto IV. Unit sales are up 21 percent over the previous title, with revenue up 36 percent. Basically it's making lots of money for EA. Sports..
Disney Interactive's Toy Story 3 is still top of the UK sales charts
That's despite a surge of interest in Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption, which jumped back into second position from fifth. Elsewhere, there's plenty of life-style toff for the Nintendo platforms (what the heck is Art Academy!?) and the usual first-person shooter suspects in Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The full..
Disney Interactive's surprisingly brilliant Toy Story 3 has topped the British sales charts this week, holding off a surge of interest in Activision's Modern Warfare 2 which finished up second
Elsewhere, dance titles are clearly the "in" thing, as both Just Dance and Dance On Broadway make up two slots in the top ten. Sigh, imagine when Dance Central comes out. TOY STORY 3 CALL OF DUTY:..
Proving that map packs are just as big business as the games themselves, Activision's announced that as of June 30th the Call Of Duty franchise has pushed 20 million map packs out to consumers
That's a lot of maps. And a lot of money too.
Yesterday we posted a video which seemed to suggest that Modern Warfare 2 (and presumably the franchise as a whole) was on the verge of getting some kind of subscription fee
But it's not. Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling clarified: For the record, nobody has to pay to play COD or MW2 multiplayer, nor will they. Josh Olin of Treyarch had a similar thing to say regarding Call Of..
Ruh-roh? Do you like Call Of Duty? Chances are you probably do
Well get ready to pay for it, because those rumours about Activision prepping a separate subscription fee for Call Of Duty's multiplayer may have just been turned up a notch. A video (embedded after the jump) posted by a 360Junkies member clearly shows some form of subscription model...
I just don't get it
As a reviewer, I can see the positives and negatives in every game I play. But on a personal level, I just don't get multiplayer shooters. I'm talking about the games that have Team Deathmatch as the default game-mode — your Modern Warfare 2s, Medal Of Honors and even Uncharted 2s. I've always questioned whether I truly have...
If you've been clamouring for more Modern Warfare 2 DLC, you'll be pleased to know that Microsoft's timed-exclusivity deal lifts this week -- meaning American gamers will get their hands on Modern Warfare 2's Resurgence pack today when the PlayStation Store updates
Europeans, you'll have to wait until tomorrow. Come on - 24 hours isn't long. You've got time to prestige in that time. Right, right?..
How big is Modern Warfare 2? The answer is - ridiculously big
Activision's just announced that Infinity Ward's epic shooter has sold an enormous 20million copies to date. Those numbers are across the PlayStation 3, XBOX 360 and PC. That's an enormous number of games folks.
Red Dead Redemption's held onto its spot aloft the UK sales charts, despite the release of Nintendo's Super Mario Galaxy 2
The plumber instead had to settle for the number two spot, while FIFA World Cup 2010 held onto its place in the top three, finishing in third. Elsewhere, it's pretty much as you were with appearances from Modern Warfare 2 and UFC Undisputed 2010. The full top-twenty is after..
Activision's announced that Modern Warfare 2's second map-pack will hit the PlayStation Store on July 6th (or July 7th for those of you in Europe)
The pack's been available on the XBOX 360 for a week or so now, but was obviously delayed on the PlayStation 3 due to Microsoft's timed-exclusivity dollars. Still, July 6th is only a few weeks away. The pack will set you back a whopping $15, which will..
Do you like Hans Zimmer? Do you like music scored to the images of guns, explosions and dead bodies? Then Modern Warfare 2's soundtrack - which has just hit iTunes for $9
99 - may very well be your cup of tea. To be fair, it was a pretty good soundtrack.
We're not going to post too candidly about the second Modern Warfare 2 expansion pack announced today because, well, Microsoft's moneyhat is still in effect and these maps are still some way down the line for PS3 owners
Still, we thought it was worth noting that one of the new maps is set among a fun fair. Cool.</em>
At an Activision investor call yesterday, the company's CEO Bobby Kotick confirmed that the Call Of Duty franchise has delivered over 17 million map packs
And those figures don't even include the numbers for the Modern Warfare 2 map pack which launched on the Playstation Network this week. The businessman was talking about the multi-pronged strategy...
American Modern Warfare 2 players - Microsoft's "exclusivity" window is now up, and you're totally going to be able to play Modern Warfare 2's Stimulus map pack today
You can check out a rundown of the new locales over on the Playstation Blog if you're curious. It's also worth noting that Infinity Ward will be running double XP all this week, so you...
Here's some incentive for those of you still working hard at Infinity Ward crafting Modern Warfare 2's next over-priced DLC pack: Janco Partners analyst Mike Hickey reckons the studio will be closed when the content's finished up
What with all the legal drama and defections going down at the once market leading studio, Hickey reckons the studio will eventually be absorbed into Activision and that..
We've gone a little quiet on the whole Activion, Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment drama
There's not much to tell really. The once high-profile studio has suffered a pretty enormous exodus, and Activision blogger Dan Amrich reckons there's more to come. Posting on a Bobby Kotick Facebook group (ahem), the Activision man stated there was still plenty of talent at the studio, despite many..
How exactly do you broaden the audience of one of the biggest selling games in video game history? No idea, but Activision's COO Thomas Tippi [really? - Ed] seems to think newly formed studio Sledgehammer Games' Call Of Duty project will do just that
Speaking with the LA Times, Tippi said Sledgehammer's take will bring "innovation" to the series. Tippi was also keen to stress that..
If you've not been keeping up with the whole Activision vs
ex-Infinity Ward men debacle, you probably wouldn't know that Jason West and Vince Zampella - ex-gaffers at Modern Warfare 2 studio Infinity Ward - were fired by the company's parent Activision and later reacted by issuing legal action against the company. Well Activision's just released a counter-complaint against the ex-employees,..
Microsoft's "exclusivity" in regards to Modern Warfare 2's "Stimulus Map Pack" has turned out to be incredibly brief, as publishers Activision has just announced that the DLC's due on Playstation 3 mere weeks after its XBOX 360 debut - on May 4th in the US and May 5th worldwide
That's according to Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling anyway, who made the...
This week's UK sales chart has to be the most generic list in a long time
You've got Ubisoft's Wii Just Dance dacing game at the top, with last weeks leader Just Cause 2 in the runner-up spot. You've then got Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2. Then Pokemon. Then Wii Sports. Then Pokemon. Then Fifa. The Wii Fit. Then Super Mario. It's about as predictable as the sun going down this..
That "pun" has been run into the ground and stomped on so many times we really shouldn't have used it
But that's exactly why we did use it. Ha-hah. Incredible. Anyway - without further ado, here's your British sales charts news: Just Cause 2 is number one with a bullet. Or should we say grapple hook? Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2 are still lingering the top ten, with God Of War..
Guess what? It's the BAFTAs tomorrow night
And that means all the glamorous folks involved in putting together the games you loved last year will be heading to the red-carpet to (hopefully) collect a copious number of gongs. We've teamed up with VoucherCodes.co.uk to bring you our definitive list of predictions ahead of tomorrow's big event...
We're shaking our heads here
Bemused. Look, we know Modern Warfare 2's a good game. We said as much in our review. But really, it's not that good. It's a shooter, you have guns, they fire. Man, the UK's video games sales data people GfK Chart-Track have just announced that Modern Warfare 2 has become the second best selling game of all time. It's...
DICE has announced that anyone who's redeemed their VIP code for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will receive mode updates for both the Arica Harbour and Laguna Presa maps on March 30th
That's the same day as the XBOX 360 version of Modern Warfare 2 gets new multiplayer maps. Interesting. Anyway, if you've redeemed your VIP code, you'll totally get this...
Remember Call Of Duty? Yeah it was a big deal for a little while
It'll continue to be a big deal for a while longer. But it kinda sounds like the franchise is done. In a whole pile of drama starting yesterday, Activision has fired the Infinity Ward bosses Vince Zampella and Jason West. Activision's also filed a document citing a human resources investigation into breaches of contract and..
It seems to me that every video game has multiplayer these days
More or less. And even when it's debateable whether a game should have multiplayer (Bioshock 2 springs to mind), the resulting component tends to be rather impressive. But that causes its own sub-set of problems, particularly for someone like myself who has to play through multiple...
Apparently Bioshock is still a big deal, as Bioshock 2 has shot straight to the top of the UK charts, removing previous leader Mass Effect 2
Interestingly, after a slew of price-cuts (and perhaps that Playstation 3 patch), Bayonetta has re-entered the charts in number 10 (up from 36). Elsewhere, Fifa 10 and Modern Warfare 2 are still strong propositions. Check out the full list after the jump..
It never seems to be longer than a few days before we're posting about yet another Modern Warfare 2 patch
We know the popularity of the game has lead to plenty of exploits but, this is kind of ridiculous. The latest patch should fix the predator missile on care package exploit, plus more rebalancing for the shotguns. Oh and earning negative XP no longer happens. Anyone still play this game? Dumb..
The executive producer of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Charles Magnusson, has told Eurogamer
de</a> that he believes Battlefield: Bad Company 2's multiplayer is simply "better" than Modern Warfare 2."I certainly respect our colleagues and they have made a first-class title on the legs, but I think we simply have a better, richer multiplayer experience. Exactly what we wanted..
We were kind of worried about MAG's sales
Oh, there are plenty of people playing the game to make the servers active, and the actual game is worthy of 4/4 on this very website — but if the initial sales were bad then, yo, it might mean less post-support from the folks at Zipper. Which is where MAG is likely to thrive. So it's pleasing to see MAG enter the UK sales charts at number four. Sure, the..
Gah, it feels like every week we're posting about another Modern Warfare 2 patch that fixes some glitch or other
Take the latest patch, which fixes the following: Care Package, Emergency Airdrop, and Sentry Gun marker grenades sprint speed normalized Fix for "infinite care package" exploit Sentry Guns: Improved placement detection, preventing cases of Sentry Guns inside geometry Model..
Can anyone think of any other songs aside from those by Lady GaGa that use the lyric "just dance" as a central theme? We're racking our brains here in the PushSquare office but nothing's coming
Answers on a postcard merci beaucoup. Yep, if the overly obvious post-title didn't give it away, we can confirm that Wii-title Just Dance has beaten Modern Warfare 2 to the UK charts top-spot for the second..
Someone grab that little dude with the funny suit from Braid because I'm about to take you on a trip through time
Rewind the clocks back to November 2006 when Sony released the Playstation 3 upon the world. It was met with feverish anticipation and was considered the second, err, third coming of the great Playstation home console series. All was...
Microsoft announced at E3 that they'd given Activision lots of money secured "exclusive first looks" at the upcoming Modern Warfare 2 DLC, but until today the exact context of that statement had not been revealed
However, Eurogamer are reporting today that Modern Warfare 2 DLC will receive a period of timed-exclusivity on the XBOX 360, for 30 days...
Come on guys
Dance. After nine weeks, Modern Warfare 2 has finally been knocked off the top of the British sales charts which means — we get to say something interesting in this post for once. Like quoting Lady GaGa lyrics. That's right folks, of all the games to topple Infinity Ward's shooter, the Wii's Just Dance has done the impossible. On red wine. So what else's going down on the floor?..
ELSPA's confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 was the biggest selling game for the Playstation 3 in 2009
The news comes shortly after Modern Warfare 2 was announced as the biggest game of the year by ELSPA, raking in sales of £67million in just one week. The game's now pulled in over $1billion. Sitting next to Modern Warfare 2 in the Playstation 3's overall 2009 sales charts was Fifa 10, Assassin's..
Maybe next time, we'll drop the clue
But our little game still won't be much fun, yo. It's too obvious. At this stage we're starting to believe that even when something huge, like, say, Final Fantasy XIII or God Of War III launches; Modern Warfare 2 will still be sitting atop the British sales charts. It'll probably still be there in 2011. By which time we'll have run out of funny comments to write..
Co-op is the future of online multiplayer
Never in all my years of opinionating have I been more sure of one thing: co-op is the future of online multiplayer. There'll always be a place in video games for the wrought solo escapades of a tight single-player experience, as will there always be the space for competitive multiplayer — but co-op is...
Blimey oh riley
Here's not news you expect to report on everyday. According to reports from Destructoid, Infinity Ward are hiring staff to develop an MMO. The company are apparently sniping employees from Sony Online Entertainment and Blizzard to help out on the game, including EverQuest II's Ryan Barker. Destructoid reckon the MMO will run...
Modern Warfare 2 is still top of the British sales charts
Still. That's the eighth consecutive week for Infinity Wards game about shooting people. Elsewhere, nothing much happened. Interesting.

Quick update , Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has just Tweeted that the 15mb Modern Warfare 2 update is available now
As we posted yesterday, the update fixes the Javelin glitch alongside some other exploits. Quite a few people wrote in yesterday saying they'd stopped playing MW2 until this stuff got fixed. You can jump back in now eh, guys?
Infinity Ward are finally readying a patch to fix Modern Warfare 2's much-famed Javelin glitch
The glitch, which makes people go really fast and be all explosive, is already in certification according to Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling. Aswell as the Javelin glitch, patch 1.06 will also fix the infinite care package exploit, aswell as stopping players from glitching the scenery (i.e. hiding inside..
Haven't you bought it yet already? Well, we suppose there's not much else coming out

Can you Adam 'nd Eve it - Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 is still top of the UK sales charts
Blimey! Try to contain yourselves, won't you. In other Modern Warfare 2 sales news, ELSPA have offered the game their prestigious Diamond award for whopping sales throughout the UK region. As you should well be aware reader, Modern Warfare 2 has sold lots and lots of copies. Elsewhere, Assassin's Creed..
If you, like some of those on my PSN friends list, have already put in 40 hours into Modern Warfare 2, you might be getting a bit hacked off with seeing the same maps
We were after just 7 hours, but that's moot. Point is, you want DLC, right? Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling just Tweeted that it's coming - in "Spring". And that ladies and gentlemen, is that.
Modern Warfare 2 was (and still continues to be) a big deal
It smashed loads of sales records in, like, 24 hours and will probably remain one of the most played Playstation games until 2010. So, it's inevitable to think that DLC for one of the most popular games of year could spin a whole pile of cash. That's absolutel
Well, this is about as much a shock as Katie Price being voted for a Bushtucker Trial: Modern Warfare 2 has continued its grip on the British sales charts
And that's with Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed II managing to outperform its predecessor by 12 percent. Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. Wii was the other big debut this week, with very little interest Playstation-wise elsewhere. Unless you include..
It's time to get voting for Spike TV's annual VGA awards show
The nominees are out and the contenders for game of the year include Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The Playstation 3 exclusive will go up against Batman: Arkham Asylum, Left 4 Dead 2 and Modern Warfare 2. Naughty Dog are also up for the award of best studio, with Uncharted 2...
It doesn't matter that DJ Hero was a flop because Activision are now wiping their bottom with cash
Why? Mainly because Modern Warfare 2 managed to earn the company a whopping $550million in five days. Apparently it trumps a number of huge entertainment launches such as The Dark Knight and Harry Potter.
Well, let's be honest, it was absolutely inevitable that some Russians were going to get upset over that scene in Modern Warfare 2
We'd tell you all about it, but we don't want to spoil things for folks who haven't played the game yet. Chances are, if you have played the game, you know what we're talking about. According to a Hellforge translation, a censored console version of Modern Warfare 2..
Remember Ghost from Modern Warfare 2? Yeah, he sounded a lot like Gaz
That's because the character probably was Gaz. But speculation aside, the voice actor for both characters - Craig Fairbrass - has blurted out some interesting tid-bits regarding the nature of a potential spin-off title starring the masked military dude.I did in the last game a voice for a character called Gaz and in this game..
Pretend to be surprised for us will you? Thanks
So, guess what? Modern Warfare 2entered the UK charts in the number one position for the week ending November 14th. It managed to sell a whopping 1.78 million copies over the five or so days it was on sale, with a speculated 700,000 or so copies attributed to the Playstation3 version. The rest of the chart is pretty uneventful, with the usual mix of..
The campaign might be a teensy bit contrived, but there's absolutely no doubt that Modern Warfare 2 is absolutely the best multiplayer game available on Playstation 3 right now
It's the subtle tweaks that make Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer a rip-roaring success. This is not evolution, it's iteration. And it's iteration at its very best. Modern...
The video game executive that every gamer loves to hate - Activision's Bobby Kotick - has made a cool $20million after selling 2million shares in the firm this week
The outrageous profit comes after shrewd business from Bobby on the week of Modern Warfare 2's launch. Is it possible to hate this man any more?
Activision have announced that Modern Warfare 2 managed to muster up sales in the 4
7million region in just North America and the UK alone. We're going to assume that's a lot of money and stuff. And now, we're not going to post anything else about Modern Warfare 2's sales until at least next week. Because we're bored of it. We get it. It sold lots.
Analyst Ben Schachter wants to talk numbers
Big numbers in fact, in relation to Modern Warfare 2. He wants to talk a whopping 7million — which he reckons is just how many copies Modern Warfare 2 sold on day-one worldwide. We already know of the 1.23 million sold in the UK, so those worldwide estimates certainly don't seem far off the boil. If that's correct, Modern Warfare 2 would have doubled..
Infinity Ward have finally managed to fix Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer issues, meaning anyone wanting to jump online and shoot some folks can now once again do so
It appears the problem was down to overwhelming demand raping Infinity Ward's servers. Reassuringly though, Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling Tweeted that the company...
So we guess patch number three is on the way then? Since yesterday's launch of Modern Warfare 2 we've already had two patches; today's released to fix the trophy unlocks
Sadly, while we can confirm patch 1.02 has fixed trophies, it's totally borked the online multiplayer which, well, doesn't work at all. Hopefully Infinity Ward can turn out a patch...
As expected, Modern Warfare 2's launch was a major deal in the UK
The game sold a whopping 1.23 million units in its first 24 hours or so; absolutely crushing Grand Theft Auto IV's 631,000 units. The Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association described the launch as "interactive entertainment come of age." Apparently, Infinity Ward's shooter grossed £47million in first..
Modern Warfare 2 is barely 24 hours old and it's already been patched twice
We suppose that shows some hefty commitment from Activision and Infinity Ward to make the game's launch as smooth as possible. The patch apparently fixes trophy unlock issues that were affecting some users on launch day. The slightly broken party system will be fixed by...
Today is November 10th
That's the day that Modern Warfare 2 officially lands on store shelves. Chances are there's no one around to read this. Fact is, we aren't actually around to write it. This is being written on Sunday 8th November to inform you that, today (today being the Tuesday November 10th) we are playing Modern Warfare 2. And no, we don't intend to update the website. We intend to shoot..
So this week there's only really one release everyone cares about
And chances are you're playing it right now, rather than reading this. PushSquare's Playstation Pick Of The Week: Modern Warfare 2 (PS3) Well, let's face it, it wasn't going to be anything else was it? Infinity Ward's military tour-de-force should be available worldwide right now...
Well, obviously not right now, this isn't a magic photograph
It is still a recent photograph from tonight's Modern Warfare 2 launch event in London's Leicester Square however. We'd be there, seeing the sights and brushing shoulders with the Zoo models but, y'know, we're in Birmingham. Sorry folks.
Perhaps you're offended by the game's subject matter? Maybe you hate Bobby Kotick with a vengeance? Or perhaps you just don't have the cash -- for whatever reason, Kotaku has compiled the complete strategy guide for the bitter Modern Warfare 2 boycotter
May we add one thing to Kotaku's list? Those of you boycotting because of the game's hype levels: sit quietly in a darkened room and think about..
Modern Warfare 2 is getting its own premiere in London's Leicester Square tonight
No, we're not making it up. It's really happening. Apparently there's going to be a load of famous people and "top DJs" and a secret gig and stuff. Some guy off Big Brother Series 3 will probably be there or something. We don't know. It's hard to remember that this is just a video game right now. It honestly..
Modern Warfare 2 isn't even out yet
If you didn't know, it's out tomorrow. But hey, lots of people already have the game. So will their multiplayer stats be reset so that everyone is on an even playing field come launch tomorrow? Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling says no. <span>Any players who purchased a legit retail copy will not be reset or banned. Only modded / pirate..
Huge disappointment for Insomniac Games in the UK
They have seen their excellent Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time reach a lowly number 22 in the UK all-formats chart. The game was beaten by Sony's other release of the week, SingStar: Take That, which appeared to get much more marketing in the mainstream press than Ratchet. Alas, with Modern Warfare 2 around the corner, the casual gamers took..
Both the Guardian and Telegraph have gone live with their Modern Warfare 2 reviews ahead of embargo (which PushSquare believes to be this evening), both outlets scoring the hyped-beyond-life-itself shooter perfect scores
The Guardian describe it as the most "polished, intelligent FPS" of the year. The Telegraph have also heaped the praise on Infinity Ward's creation claiming, "It may..
As anticipation mounts for the biggest game release of the year, American retailer GameStop have seemingly crumpled under the pressure, selling copies of Modern Warfare 2 ahead of its street date in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio
Hey if you live near by though, it's worth a crack right? We mean, you won't specifically be doing anything wrong.
Infinity Ward have released the last Modern Warfare 2 trailer before the game's launch next week
And it's an absolute show stopper. Highlighting some of the game's biggest set-pieces (while hopefully keeping a few under wraps), we're sure the trailer showcases someone in space at one point. Which then brings us onto our major Modern Warfare 2 concern. When the nuclear bomb went off in Call Of Duty..
We don't know if you heard but, hey, Modern Warfare 2 is going to be a big, big, big deal
So big in fact, Activision were willing to plough Infinity Ward with a "ridiculous" budget to develop the game.Early on when we decided to make a sequel Activision estimated out a ridiculous budget. And we were like: No, we dont need that, Infinity Ward's community manager Robert..
So, Infinity Ward have really gone mad with the multiplayer killstreaks in Modern Warfare 2
The latest leak to come out of Infinity Ward is the 25-kill streak reward: a nuke.
Gotta be honest, we weren't entirely sure whether those third-person Modern Warfare 2 claims yesterday were real
But alas, Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has come out and said, yo, it's totally fact, Modern Warfare 2 has multiplayer modes."It's not something you can toggle on and off in ANY game," said Bowling. The mode can apparently be turned on and off in private matches or be played..
Earlier today we posted a leaked video supposedly from Modern Warfare 2 displaying a third-person game type
A screenshot of Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer playlists seems to confirm the existence of a SOCOM-like mode, with "3rd Person Team Deathmatch" and "3rd Person Cage Match" both showing up on the lists. There's still no word from Infinity Ward, so continue to treat as..
Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling hinted at a "big secret" reveal for Modern Warfare 2 recently
That secret may have just been leaked, as footage of Modern Warfare 2 running from a third-person perspective has hit Youtube. A French gamer claims to have picked up an early copy of Modern Warfare 2 and spotted a third-person gameplay mode. Treat as rumour for now.
This screenshot, part of a full set you can view over at Kotaku, confirms that Modern Warfare 2 will be more than just a romp around brown landscapes
Alas, here we see the bright blue depths of the ocean, as British troops scuba-dive in clean looking water. By the way, have you folks heard those rumours that the game's first mission will take place in space? Crazy. Not long until we find out for..
Activision are throwing the gauntlet in terms of big midnight launch parties this year, with a massive Modern Warfare 2 bash in Leicester Square, London
The party will take place on the night before the game's launch, November 10th, with the screens of the nearby ODEON steaming footage from Infinity Ward's shooter, aswell as HMV honouring a midnight launch. Eurogamer are reporting there's also..
News just in that the BBFC have rated Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 an 18
It goes one rating further than the already rather brutal Call Of Duty: World At War, and is perhaps an indication that Infinity Ward's trademark "in your face" moments will return in Modern Warfare 2. It's actually..
Modern Warfare 2 totally does have co-op, it's just not quite in the same vein as what many expect
It'll be enjoyable in short two-player chunks, rather than full-on romps through the single-player campaign. Robert Bowling told VG247 that the reason full co-op for the single-player experience wasn't included was because it "really broke the cinematic experience, took the immersion out of it,..
Just a bit more on Modern Warfare 2
This is a new video to emerge out of a recent multiplayer event that Infinity Ward held. The footage depicts the use of the sniper and shows some lobbies and stuff. Not very interesting for the casual Modern Warfare fan we must admit, but new footage will delight those itching for the game.
"[Activision] wanted to be World War II
Again," reveal Infinity Ward of their block-buster title Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2. In an interview with Official Playstation Magazine - UK, Infinity Ward's head-honcho Vince Zampella has revealed how publisher Activision held them back from releasing a modern combat game for years.<span>"With Call of Duty 2, we were dead set against it..
As promised, there's a new Modern Warfare 2 trailer
"Infamy" tries to pull at your heart strings. The question of morality underscored by readings from the Bible; ironic for a game all about shooting folk. We guess that's kinda the idea. Either that, or we're missing something. Still, we don't think Modern Warfare 2 is a game that trailers well. After all, the first game was totally all..
So, according to USA Today, Activision will be showing a new trailer for Modern Warfare 2 in between the San Diego Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers game on Sunday
Any Americans who've dropped by this site and feel like kicking us in the face due to our "handegg" joke in the title, please chill — we're simply Brits trying to be comical (and almost certainly failing). Those who are way..
We love our LittleBigPlanet dynamic theme
But we feel like it's time we had a change. Sadly there's not much else available on the Playstation Store. Thankfully Infinity Ward are on the case, with "some [Modern Warfare 2] dynamic themes in the works for the PS3 XMB". We imagine a series of Modern Warfare 2 themes would fair rather well on the Playstation Store. And with Activision behind..
How can you know when a game is hyped through the roof? When it gets its own energy drink of course
Like these specially branded cans of Modern Warfare 2 Monster Drink.

Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling has confirmed via the wonders of Twitter that there are no plans for a pre-launch demo
Hence, if you're still totally on the fence regarding whether Modern Warfare 2 is the game for you — you're out of luck. Still, seeing as a quarter of the population will own the game by Christmas, you could always pop around to a friends house and try out their..
