With the video game industry continuing to grow and take away even more time from the life of us gamers, the releases of some Triple-A games have turned into all-out events where people mark their calendars and line-up for midnight launches. We saw it this year with Batman: Arkham City and Gears of War 3, but no game series has stronger launches then Call of Duty and Activision pulled it off again Tuesday with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Not only did Modern Warfare 3 crush pre-order records and day one sales, but it had people lining up at video game retailers around the world at midnight to get their hands on the latest FPS shooter in the annual franchise as soon as possible. In fact, so many people lined up, that one dude couldn’t handle the size of the line and tried to use a gun to score himself a copy early and for free. He failed.
