From fourzerotwo's Twitter: "... as promised. The Modern Warfare 2 Launch Trailer!"
Buying it used.
The trailer was cool but the song sucked.
So I guess there really is a space level in the game.
Whaaaa? You don't like Eminem? I thought the song fit the trailer perfectly.
The last few seconds are the worst part. Very distasteful.
Yea the song only made the trailer better. Of course it helps that the game looks so great...
yeah i hate the last few second makes me not want to buy the game
I never got into rap or hiphop, I don't think I know one song by Eminem. I'm sure I've heard some of his songs on the radio or tv but I never bothered to listen to them.
Haha, I rewatched it to see what you were talking about. Haha, it's a stupid joke but I laughed. edit: And yeah, the song fit pretty well but I don't care much for new stuff.
I love how Infinity Ward said they hate the console wars....and yet theres a nice little 360 logo at the end of the trailer. (I also saw an ad on TV that said "Xbox 360, the best console to play Modern Warfare 2 on")
Cannot wait for this game. I wonder how much MS paid to have it exclusively advertised on 360. Do they not want there PSN community for CoD to grow?
MS probably payed a LOT to make the deal for exclusive advertising. And that ad on tv is just desperate. Ps3 is the best place to play as the online is free and your console won't break.
The Eminem track actually fits well.
Damn, guess Microsoft sprung for the entire marketing budget huh? Edit You know, I don't get the hate against Microsoft. So what if they paid for much of the game's advertising? There is an article on the front page about Sony signing an exclusive deal for the advertising of Assassin's Creed 2. Where's the outcry there?
the song made the trailer.
I doubt that MS paid anything. IW are just advertising to its biggest consumer base, Xbox 360 owners. And as far as the song goes...I'm sure they could have picked something with a similar beat, but without Eminem's annoying voice.
Christ that song is a turd. You chumps need to learn what a real emcee sounds like.
are you kidding me? eminem made the video better. complimented the video and the demographic the game is aiming for (i.e.: popularity). also, the relapse 2 is coming out soon so it's probably another reason why eminem was in the video even though it was an old song.
Holy SH!T! This game will phenomenal. Amazing trailer for an amazing game!
I just jizzed in my pants!
anyone else having trouble deciding what to play first??!? single, multi, or spec ops!!!
Then I'll try out Spec Ops, then finally the multiplayer. Unless you're crazy about rankings..
Multi all the way, but what we have been shown for single player, I will be jumping on that sooner than I anticipated. Game looks stellar.
CoD4 had me hooked for multiplayer, so I really want to try that but I will go single player this time around. Also I will try Spec-ops when Im done with Single just cause its new to CoD. I really want the multi though :(
Mp for me being 2 more of my friends are getting it at mid-night or tomorrow cause the peeps at my k-mart don't know what a street date is. Bubbles to you reckoner for having great taste in music.
Man, I got to stop watching stuff for this game, I am jumping out of my skin with anticipation. I am trying to avoid anyone that looks like they may be sick. The last thing I need is swine flu right before this game releases!
i totally agree with you!! im constanly looking at youtube vids of this game and telling all my friends about it,when all this is only making me want it more!!! hahahha! ohh, and im going to miss school on tuesday n no school on wed so ima be gaming it 48 hours!!!! i just cant decide what to play first, campaign, multi, or spec ops!!! but for sure that they are all going to be great!!! ohhh and the last part of the vid was da best part! hahahah! xbox 360 all da way!!! its gonna get hella crazy on xbox live at about an hour from mid night release all do to this game!!!
Can't wait for it, coolest thing is that it's veterans day next week on Tuesday so I got it all day to play
Hate to burst your bubble, but veterans day is the 11th, that wednesday. I am taking off work tuesday to pick it up at midnight and then I have veterans day off, so 48 hours of heaven for me.
I know its eminem but cant tell which song it is
'Till I Collapse off the The Eminem Show album
I bubbled you up haha, thanks !
I'll rent it for the campaign then return it. It's nothing but a rehash & I'll only play it until AC2 comes out.
Obviously you haven't been following all the news on this game. Rehash is the furthest from what this game is.
Flopza 2.5 Gears 1.5 Halo ODLC yea, you bots are used to this. You wouldn't understand.
Good for you. Stay the f[_]ck off MW2 articles then. Thanks.
Don't mind Saaking. He has nothing better to do
Finally hip hop music on a video game. Eminem was a great touch with this trailer, makes you really feel you are anticipating something big. Just continue to do it without putting mainstream hip hop with game trailers in the future and you'll do just fine developers.
I don't understand why people aren't excited about this game's single player at least.... Activision aside this game looks great and fun.
IW are known for their cinematic and overall fun campaign modes. Come on, it's a rent at least for all you naysayers!
All I gotta say is I'm officially joining the military. I've been considering it for months, if not years and with this trailer I'm officially joining right after college.
than mission accomplish on their side
every male in my family has been in, in one way or another. I myself am getting my PhD in military history. To my family the most important thing is getting your education, I don't really blame them. But yeah it was probably inevitable, i'd definately love to join when it's all said and done.
You shouldn't let a game convince you. Joining the military is a life changing decision and war is NOTHING like that portrayed in games. It'll be very tough so just think about it thoroughly before making a final choice. And just becuase you're family is mostly military doesn't mean you have to be.
O no believe me I understand it very well. I've thought about it for years. I agree completely that you shouldn't allow a game to influence a decision, but still it is something I'm looking to do.
Go watch Jarhead. Boring film interspersed with a few intense scenes. That's what life is like when you're on active duty. 5 months of trying to find a way to not die of pure boredom. 5 minutes of please god let me get out of this alive.
I'll be buying it day 1 but it looks like crap they really should have worked on the graphics
God, you guys are stupid. COD4 was one of the best looking console games of 2007, and MW2 has improved upon it. Yet all of a sudden it's ugly, and supposed to be Crysis-like, while running at 60 fps, right? I can't wait for the major reviews and their scores for the graphics and until you guys see this on an HDTV in front of you. Until then, do me a favor, shut the hell up.
Yea 2007, 2 years ago. When compared with KZ2 and UC2, MW2 looks last gen. I know the 360 seriously limits it, but they could at least try.
Is MW2 even in HD?
so yeah, probably sub-HD looking like this will be game of the year. just because it's multiplat and it's not that bad. more of the same, but the same was good enough back in 07 but AIAS goty will still go to uncharted 2.
UC2 and KZ2 don't run at 60fps, now do they, genius? I'm sure if people didn't care about it being super smooth, then the visuals could be a lot better with 30 locked fps. It would probably look like Bad Company 2, but wouldn't play as good.
no, but they run in real HD Genius...
i have it paid in full already
Gotta admit, the trailer really did a good job about showing all the places you'd be going in SP which I really liked, but the music actually kinda sucked
Music was awful. Some sort of intense orchestral piece would have fit it much better.
Question Saaking.....what's so much better about GT5 than the previous versions. (Personally, I don't like racing games but I'm just curious) I mean, how can you really innovate a racing game?
The best way to innovate a racing simulator is by refining physics interaction and real word variability. State of the art simulators, like the one the military and NASA use, run telemetry calculations using matrices that take into account hundreds, if not thousands, of real world variables like temperature, velocity, speed, weight displacement, time, tire deformation (in Forza 3, this is being heavily mentioned), obstacle interaction, material damage, etc. The best ones have the most variables being calculated several hundred times within a second. For example, if you're calculating the trajectory of a ball flying through the air, you're gonna do a better job of mapping it's position if you're doing these calculations 15 times a second rather than 4 times a second. If you then take the data you've calculated and make a visual graph out of it, you're going to get a smoother line of the ball's trajectory, and a better overall image if you use the most data. So, this is how driving simulators on consoles can be improved. Every iteration of GT5 and Forza 3 will likely run telemetry on more variables that can change the way a vehicle interacts. Turn 10 talked about how they also went and took note of every bump and every crack on the tracks that they were recreating so that the real-world experience of driving on that track could be accurately simulated in Forza 3. I don't believe that they actually did this because current consoles don't have enough processing power to spare for little things like this. But rest assured, NASA takes much more care in designing their simulators. They account for so many things because it's important that the people who are training for missions become well acquainted with what they're going to experience in space. So next generation consoles will have a boatload more processing power, and both PD and Turn 10 will be implementing more variables into their telemetry. I think Greenwalt of Turn 10 said that they had run out of ideas, and I remember laughing because there are so many variables to take into account than just basic G-FORCE and heat displacement in tires. Obviously it was something he said to make the fans excited. On top of physics, it's always nice for the simulator to have nice visuals. Unfortunately, the fanboys of this era are a bit more blinded by good looks and less interested with the physics. I laugh at this because based on my experience with Forza 2 and the videos I've seen of Forza 3 and GT5, neither series has a very accurate simulation of real world interactions. GT5 is a little too lenient on racers who crash into walls on sharp turns, at least in the early videos more than 4 months ago. I remember a blue subaru crashing hard into a wall on a tight turn, and it merely bounced back a little and was on its way. This does not happen in real life. With Forza, the problems are associated with inconsistent physics. Although the term realism can only be used mildly in Forza 3, it is not as lenient. A lot of people on this site are familiar with the physics glitches of Forza 3. Someone more informed in programming can explain why it is that sometimes the game seems to miss a beat on its own rules.
how can you idiots say this trailer sucks. when i was watching the ultimate fighter i went crazy to this trailer. all you "rap haters" can suck a d1ck because its just a song. this trailer was awesome and im really hyped. i know i love uncharted 2 more but this game will definitely be awesme.
it will easily sell 15 million NEW FULL PRICED copies
why are so many of you so happy about this game. 9v9 for pc version no mods no dedicated servers no party chat for 360. they had the gay gernade trailer on youtube and all the crap the activision ceo has said. and everyone is still rushing out to buy it? with all the recent news im buying it used even if its just 5$ difference
Sheep will always follow the flock simple as that.
your eyes have gone bad, and if you think uncharted 2 and kz2 look that much better than mw2 then your being as much a fanboy as a pc fan throwing crysis into everything when the game dont look that great an nothing to ps3 exclusives where are ps3 fans then.....unless you are pc fans
I think I just got an erection. WHAT?
A word to describe this launch trailer. Btw, I canceled my PC MW2 pre-order today. Thought I'd add that.
