Michael Phelps Has CoD: World At War And You Don't

So what do you need to do to score a copy of Call of Duty: World at War from Activision two months early? Simple. Just dominate a sporting event on the global stage, bringing home a record-breaking 8 gold medals from the Olympics, and that baby is yours. This is a video from CBS's The Early Show, which shows U.S. Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, otherwise known as The Seahorse, receiving a copy of the game for the PlayStation 3 at the end of the segment. Perhaps by the time the game comes out in November he'll actually have time to play it.

awesome activision, i respect you guys a whole lot more. Michael Phelps said that he like video games and thats an awesome gift for him right there and phelps deserves it ya know what he did was HUGE and i congratulate him, i watched most of his races and i am really happy for him. you guys should see how much this dude EATS! 12,000 calories a day! omg hes a BEAST!

mintaro5570d ago

12,000? Are you kidding me?

Anyways good for him, ridiculous athlete

UNCyrus5570d ago

not 12,000... he said he fluctuates between 8000-12000 calories a day... still it's a lot...

Nevers5570d ago

gotta agree that he should definitely get the props... but this could simply be another showing of his super/godlike powers.


Greater Video-game Developer Persuasion...?

The f'n Force...?

Who knows... but damnit, he's gonna pwn my ass on CoD:WaW with all the xtra time he gets; and since it's based on the Pacifi OCEAN battles, that will already give this Mer-man a huge advantage.

Kami5570d ago

8000 to 12000? thats good. its good to increase a little of muscle or just maintain it.
when i stated bulking and eating 30000+ cals a day i felt so bloated, i cant even describe it.
didnt he also say that he trained for 8 hours or something like that? now that's impressive

IzKyD13315570d ago (Edited 5570d ago )

he eats so much because he trains for a hell of alot of hours and supposedly burns 4000+ calories a workout (I read it on yahoo)

shazam5570d ago

i hope you're being sarcastic. thats like a gallon of gasoline. the only way you could possibly reach that is to eat nothing but butter and whipping cream all day. no other edible substance has enough caloric density.

Bonsai12145570d ago

props for phelps. the man is a god. he eats, sleeps, swims, and plays guitar hero and other video games. that's his life.

like his breakfast is more food than a village in africa gets in a week..

Sitdown5570d ago

Ummm...why do you respect activision a whole lot more......cause of a publicity stunt? They are not the first to do it, and will not be the last.

mikeslemonade5570d ago

He said he has trouble maintaining weight even at 12,000 calories and he's about 195 lbs only. For dinner I remember he eats 1 large pizza and 16 oz of pasta.

Overr8ed5570d ago

yea i need to find out his Work-out, i wish i can eat that much.

Bonsai12145570d ago

his workout is just thousands and thousands of meters in the pool every day. thats it.

SolidAhmed5570d ago

I Can conclude that the Ps3 Version is done before the X360. humm nice job.

CrazyMystical5569d ago (Edited 5569d ago )

Deviant5570d ago
