Guardian: Yes, it's another Modern Warfare 2 blog. I touched on the piracy angle in a post last week and expanded upon it for an article in the paper today:
Modern Warfare 2 has shifted more than one million copies in the UK alone and is likely to sell many more before Christmas. Its controversial terrorist section is what's got the headlines. But the real story here is online. The huge appeal of Modern Warfare 2 is primarily driven by its online modes. The single-player section of the game – as splendidly over the top and visceral as it is – is over in six or seven hours. The multiplayer modes will keep you entertained for six or seven months – or, looking at the number of people still playing the original 2007 Modern Warfare, probably longer.
