Kotaku writes...... Rapper 50 Cent will be strapping on the bulletproof vest once again in a video game-but not one of his own. Instead, he'll be making a cameo in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
oh god... this game will be bad if they put him in...
you mean "even badder"
WTF Infinity Ward!? W..T..F!? That's all you can really say, WTF!? Seems they want to reach that 11 million sold before the year is over at any cost. Overconfident asses, to go THIS far though!? http://i27.tinypic.com/1t4h... 50's skull..now with NV goggles!
I'm sorry but that's just stupid.
Well he has been shot 9 times. LOL. I'd love to shoot him a few more. I kid, I kid.
I wouldnt mind puttin a few rounds through him.
Dude seriously WTF?!?!?!?! First a charge increase for the PC version then a 50 pennies cameo........what other lame stunt will IW bring tomorrow?? Maybe IW will make Carrot Top the main enemy or maybe youll get field intelligence from Kid and Play.
One more reason NOT to buy this piece of drift wood. MW sucked and this one is looking to be a shiny piece of crap. edit: shiny EXPENSIVE piece of crap
You guys are allllll getting milked with mw2. Enjoy, because Activision is going to ride ya for years to come as long as people keep pretending night vision goggles have anything to do with really pushing forward gameplay.
Ya for sure, It would be more innovative if they had 3D glasses. Though they would probably charge $149 and give you cereal box 3D glasses. I hope people stop supporting this foolishness. If not WOW, young gamer are really easy to impress. They don't seem to want to push gaming forward, just want the same thing over and over and over .......
You people are all acting like he is gonna be the Mother F**ken main character or something. He is only one of several people doing voice acting in the multiplayer of the game. Hell sounds good aslong as I dont have to hear the exact same voice screaming at me in Russian throughout the entire match this time. Please everybody quit finding every tiny reason to hate this game. You will pay the same $60 you always pay for a new game and in turn get an exceptional single player and probably the best multi-player in any game to date. So please stop ur b*tching. Edit: Lol i got a disagree within 5 mins. Please tell me how im wrong.
"You guys are allllll getting milked with mw2. Enjoy, because Activision is going to ride ya for years to come as long as people keep pretending night vision goggles have anything to do with really pushing forward gameplay." Uhh, Activision isn't making people purchase the collectors edition, idiot. And if you're a console gamer, which I would bet most gamers on this site are, then this should have no effect on you. And if you're a pc gamer, well join the f*cking club of pricing spikes us console gamers have had to endure this gen. It's ONE game you greedy pricks, and it's only 10 bucks more. [comment I was going to post before I replied to that one] I think I'm going to kill myself. 50 cent? F*ck! It seems Activision is catering to the 13 year old wannabe gangster crowd. I hope there is a way to disable the multiplayer voices or at least just 50 cents voice. At the very least, have him speak some proper f*cking grammar and not that ghetto slang bullsh*t that he spews in his music (no I am not racist, I just hate the ghetto slang voice, and any type of slang that doesn't even attempt proper grammar, such as rednecks).
"50 Cent is "one of many squad voices" that will be featured in the multiplayer and Spec Ops modes in Modern Warfare 2. Expect to hear Fifty saying things like"Reloading," "Watch your fire," "I'm down, get me up!" and "Tango Down!" according to Bowling." No cameo, no cheezy appearance, just simple & clean voice work. MW2 for 360 day 1
some character from a Will Smith film. damn, that would suck, using that contrived rapper voice in a game that prides itself as a relatively realistic first person combat simulation. Man, I just thought of something funny, Imagine "fiddy" in basic training in the army and he tries to shoot his gun sideways like a "gangsta'" not only would his Sargent kick his A$$ but, that night he would get the bar of soap in a sock treatment from the rest of his bunkmates. like Private Pyle in "Full Metal Jacket" I'd pay good money to see that.
WOW Are you people serious you all find every little thing to bit*h about are you really that concerned who does the VOICE OVER... COME ON...and stop hating on 50. man that hate sh*t is played out!! he doin his thing making money every one of us would do the same damn thing.. i dont like him... but im not going to be like 50 cent WTF were they thinking.. And matter of fact blood on the sand was a great game if you ACTUALLY PLAYED IT!!
then we can shoot his face off!!!!!!!!
I agree, man. From the way people were reacting, I though he was going to be some kind of unlockable character and I literally said "really IW... really...?" Trust me, I was as annoyed as much as everyone else. Then I read the article to find out he only did like 5 lines of voice over work for the game. Which then re-affirmed why I think so many members on this site just like to complain about dumb shyt. It's only A FEW LINES OF VOICEOVER WORK! What is the problem? Half the time you probably wouldn't know it's him. If this article wasn't released I guarantee people wouldn't have known (until looking at game credits or something). Chill the hell out people. I feel people have turned this website from a gaming site into a "I need to blow off some frustration so I'm gonna b!tch and moan about every little thing on here" site...
I can see 50 full up in a jeep any yell at you "[email protected] GET IN MY CAR" Id rather have X to the Z XZiBITs voice in cod /S I wonder if this is why they raise the price to pay rich people to put their voices in the game. To me it takes away from the game when you hear celebrities or the same voices in the game over and over. I feel the same about seeing the same people over and over in movies, especially if its in a similar role. Why not try and be original, it adds to the realism as opposed to detract form it. Do you think these "celerities" would ever be in a war, hell no. Why not have a entire squad of rappers, and then one of actors and another of reality tv stars, and DElta squad could be washed up child stars voices. Dont hate 50 I jsut would rather have voices ive never heard in the game.
that's all, kthxbai
you know mw2 will be lacking on something.
Okay, that's it. Now I'm really going to boycott Activision for sure. This is just ridiculous.
As if I didn't already have enough reasons not to play this game...I guess I can just add another reason to the list.
Because 50 cent will have about 5 lines of dialoug in the multiplayer? Thats a stupid reason. He is one of many doing this in the game and wont even be a noticable role. So for that you going to skip an amazing game?
Well, there goes MW2's chances at being a perfect game.
when 50 cent can talk properly or push a word out of his fat lips that is understandable, then and only then do i want to hear it. As he is at the moment i cant understand 1 of his songs. All the big black CoD gamers are gunna be going nuts ... Dawg!
...50 Cent!!! ;-D + It's just for a bit of Voice stuff i think. Just copy what they said in MW1 and stick it on MW2 because it will be the same old-$hit anyway in'it iiiiiiiiii4real!!! ;-D
Do we get to shoot him? If so I'm all for it.
Count me in i am all for it as well.
He does voice work in the multiplayer? Yeah, that's wonderful... "Defuse dat bomb, or die tryin!" I dunno if I'm even gonna get this used anymore. Rental sounds good enough. Maybe just give it a try at a friend's house... or pass altogether. Whatever, I wash my hands of this. If I get to it, I get to it.
LMAO, die trying, classic lol.
I could hear him yelling "I'M BULLET PROOF B***H" after killing someone.
This is expected to be the biggest entertainment debut in history. Somehow, I don't know if it'll happen.
^This is all part of that, Activision knows 50 got a new album coming this year.
ahhh, i see ... so thats why they are charging extra.. they prob have to pay thim about 20 million $$$$ just for saying "ya" thats what they meant by "delivering quality" to gamers. my god, and people really want to pay £55 for this.
And this is how I know codmw2 is a recycled game with zero improvements. They are just selling the game. Call of duty is dead. It's over. Too popular. Watered down. Overrated. Should be taken to the middle of the street & shot in front of witnesses.
Guess MW2=instant failure. Oh well...there are other shooters out there.
Have you even played MW2 yet? No.
I'd rather go into battle with NWA. Or PE. But I think Flavor Flav would be killed by friendly fire at boot camp.
well i'm buying MW2 because its made by IW and they have never let me down
Call of Generic 4 : 50cent Will Cost Y'all should be the name of this game. Seriously, this game is becoming the next big casual hit for teen gamers who started gaming this gen. - War in the middle East, trying to make it look cool, honorable and heroic - Brown buildings EVERYWHERE - No story, not creative at all - 50cent cancer...
What would be your preferred shooter (besides Timesplitters)?
"ima kill doez terroists or die tryin"
that is so lame!!!!!!!!!
In latin this is known as gayes maximus
In japanese, it's Thissu gamo willu sucku
They said they he's going to be a multi-player voice. How would this affect the quality of the game in any way? Jackasses. He'll probably be saying stuff like, "frag out", "incoming"... WOW! That's really going to ruin the game for me. I think half the problem is you a-holes are just racist.
lol, What??? Dude seriously Racist in what way??? No one is pissed off at the fact that he is black, white, brown or any other color of skin.........the man just plain SUCKS. Why you had to turn this into a racial issue is beyond me.
not one comment mentioned anything about his race,its just the way the man acts. the man is jus plain annoying, as well as eminem, or those lame guys in that crappy band theory of a dead man etc (see what i did there has nothing to do about race and yet they all had some presence in some game incase your wondering)
looks like marioporter is the only racist here.
Common...don't compare eminem with Vanilla Ice
I think most people would be just as mad if Vanilla Ice was hired to do voiceover work instead.
Well, obviously you don't like the way he acts. Maybe it's because it's culturally different from you... I don't know. I bet if it was Dave Groehl or someone you guys would be like, "That's so awesome!"
I guess they will save him for Modern Warefare 3.
Its just a voice over but its BS when they complain how games are getting expensive to create yet they hire expensive people just to provide a voice. Honestly the only reason Call of Duty was fun was because of the ding sound it made when u got a head shot and u just love seeing +10 per kill.
its like how the movie studios used to parade around how pirating dvds effects the "working joes" on set yet they continue to dish out bucketloads of cash to the "stars"
I guess he's going to cap you with the magic stick. and it looks like the entire new kill streak in multiplayer is based off 50, cuz if he hits once he thinks he'll hit twice.
Are they serious about .. I'm just sayin' who cares if money's up on there? Damn gimmicks never cease to amaze me.
they could have come up with some one better
Well I think 50cent perfectly fits the target audience of this game
It says that he is ONE of MANY cameos in the multi-player. This is just gonna help to add some variety to the voices you hear in the online game. The first modern warfare was lacking in the variety category and so this is one way IW is trying to improve their game. But as usual nerds that just read headlines and then b*tch about them have immediatly assumed he is gonna be a huge part of this game.
It wont ruin the games idiots if your going to pass up this game because of an artist's cameo then you need some help <_< this game is just so awesome Edit:oh and by the way hes only going to be saying small things in multiplayer so..stop complaining
I highly doubt anybody is pissed because of 50, they just dont agree with activision complaining that games cost too much to make and then hire someone like 50 to provide a voice whos probably getting payed millions for this.
