Fourzerotwo's twitter: Just recieved the first Modern Warfare 2 boxes straight off the press. "S*** just got real."
i though MS dosent use the "XBOX LIVE" ANYMORE IT JUST SAYS "LIVE"
How can it be fake when it comes from Rob Bowling of Infinity Ward? FFS!
It does have that fake photoshop look to it. But if it's real, then "Forza 3 is the definitive racer this generation!" Too much smoke blown everywhere.
Fake? Do you know not who Robert Bowling is? He is the Community Relations Manager for Infinity Ward. These are not fake. http://twitter.com/fourzero... http://www.fourzerotwo.com/ http://forums.infinityward....
How hot does that boxart look? SOOO HOT!!!! Probably one of the best looking boxarts I've seen this generation.
I'm not disputing the source, I'm just saying it has that fake photoshop look to it.
they faked it on purpose.....maybe.
I don't see why they would drop it in the first place.
They dropped it because they are whores... Activision are whores. Here's how it went down They made COD 4 which due to luck was very popular online despite a dreadful online service, then they asked Treyarch to add a shell to their game and release it for full price... the result being COD 5 [email protected] but that game was worse then COD 4 so Infinity Ward felt it best to DROP the COD so they could whore out again. Also it's Activision, they don't make games unless it has a good chance of being a sequel so they usually release games year after BLOODY year for high prices while being complete whores and everythnig gamers should hate. So they release a new COD every game, and now people are starting to realise that Activision might be just re-releasing the same game and so they MIGHT not want to pay. By changing the name people think otherwise. So in short ACTIVISION are whores and should be treated like ones, they do not deserve their place in the community or gaming. I support their employes but not the code of Activision.
Though I disagree with you on COD4 being a bad game I'm giving you a bubble because Activision are rather whorish in their business dealings. Plus, it was a funny rant and I thought COD5 was a rip off.
Thank you, I'm not saying COD 4 is a bad game it's insanely fun I've put 16 days into it but it's built poorly... problem include Host Ended Game Poor Party System No Clan System what so ever Error 33 Glitches LAAAG. These are all too common, and I know it's a rant but if you have read the stuff about Activision as me you'd know that wasn't a rant. Just look at stuff like Activision suing double fine Activision having a go at sony for the PS3 costing too much while Realising GH 5 for £70 and releasing DJ hero for £120 and releasing COD 6 for £55 which is too much. Activision acting like boss but in two years they'll come back... trust me on this the milk will run dry.
Either way I'm buying it Day 1
We can tell from ur avatar!!
this is stupid.
Read the comments. It's not the "final" box art. But it's a version of it.
its better for them to include "Call of Duty" because that will guarantee more sales... There are casual gamers that won't know that MW2 is basically COD6. They'll just think its a different game
Wasnt the whole, IW dropping the Call of Duty brand name a load of rubbish anyway?
I'm sure they wanted to but daddy said no.
nobody especiall casual gamers refer to cod4 AS cod4 not modern warfare so alot of people wouldnt have known what it was smart choice
I had a hard time believing Activision would let them release this without "Call of Duty" printed on the box.
You must have missed the story, the lames at Treyarch got the dudes at IW pissed by them always mentioning COD4 to hype their WW2 COD ass games. So the best solution was to give IW its own brand of games, the brand is "Modern Warfare" which is what they created back on 2007. So now Treyarch will deal with "Call of Duty" and The fresh brand of "Modern Warfare" launches this fall.
Provide a link to anywhere that quotes IW saying they're dropping the COD brand name. I'll wait...
http://www.youtube.com/watc... There you go. Didn't have to wait long did you. HA! You can even see the box art in the background before it got the COD brand stamped on it, and it looks a lot better in my opinion.
Fake, no rating (ESRB, CERO, etc.)
Wow, u know robert bowling? he is president at Infinity ward! This foto come straight from him.. So how fake?? U lame!
He's not president. He is the COMMUNITY RELATIONS MANAGER.
He is a important man inside Infinity Ward! So if this is fake then damaging his confidence! But it is not FAKE !
That I can agree with.
EARLY BOX ART people read the damn words... I am sure they will keep it Modern Warfare 2 then put in small corner "Sequel to the best FPS of 2007- CALL OF DUTY 4" They can call it "ASS OF DOODIE" and people will still buy it.
"ASS OF DOODIE" does sound like a compelling game title.
this game is going to kick so much ass! and personally i think the box art is sick!
It will make abundance of sales....
Cod. No cod. I don't care. Just take out juggernaut and I'll be happy. I loath u juggernauters. Oh yeah and how about this time u make the 50 cal one shot one kill anything above the waist. Nothing like hitting someone dead in the chest with a bullet that would rip u in half. Only to see them scamper off. Sniping in killzone is soo nasty.
if they take out martyrdom then a purchase will be justified even if its cod4.5.
I used to be a cheap-ass martyrjug until I discovered the fine art of sniping. And, yes, the .50 cal should be a one-shot kill, juggernaut or not.
boxart is [email protected]
i don't think it's "back." i think they put it on the box for worry that people wouldn't know it was the sequel to COD4. i guess you could think of the "Call of Duty" logo as more of a practical decoration rather than part of the title.
Anyone notice that the box behind the 360's doesn't have the PS3 logo on the side of it. It's just a black line. IS KOTICK ACTUALLY GOING TO DITCH THE PS3?????????
R u serious?
stupid activision or whose ever idea it was to but COD on the title cheap basturds
who cares?everyone knows it as Call of Duty anyway
i hope nobody. but if your to dense to realize its COD:MW2 then you don't deserve to play the game, just like the people who picked up halo wars thinking it was a FPS
all this yapping over a name?.
Everyone needs to calm down a bit including me. At least the "Modern Warfare 2" bit is in big letters and Call of Duty is sort of like a pre-title.
I think it would look better if they had 'A Call of Duty game' or something at the top of the box, thus retaining brand recognition but avoiding name confusion.
All those people saying the game had lost COD from title. Looks like you were wrong. Too many rumours going around.
