Ships Ahoy - Modern Warfare 2 (Except for Steam)

Activision announces Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is now available in stores. Interestingly, the version purchased through Steam will not unlock until Thursday night, presumably some sort of concession to retail. Also, there's a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 video interview on GameVideos talking about the game with Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling and there are a bunch of videos on GameTrailers: Hornet's Nest Gameplay Part I, Hornet's Nest Gameplay Part II, Favela Gameplay Part I, Favela Gameplay Part II, Wolverines Gameplay, No Russian Gameplay HD, Third-Person Multiplayer Gameplay, Multiplayer Killstreak, Spec Ops AC-130 Gameplay, and Spec Ops Defend Gameplay. Here's word on the game's release:

Picking up following the historic events of Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare®, Modern Warfare 2 completely immerses players in one of the most intense storylines, filled with unexpected plot twists and death-defying battles set in exotic locales across the globe. As gamers fight to save the world from annihilation, the soundtrack of Academy Award®, Golden Globe® Award and Grammy® Award winning composer Hans Zimmer sets the dark and ominous tone for a truly cinematic gaming experience. Modern Warfare 2 marks the first time that the legendary artist has scored a video game.

Delivering the complete package, in addition to the heart-racing intensity of the single player campaign, Modern Warfare 2 also offers an entirely new gameplay mode, "Special Ops," which supports 2-player co-operative play via online or split screen dropping gamers into a surplus of time-trial and objective-based missions. As players rank-up, ever challenging missions are unlocked, including highlights from the single player campaign, fan favorites from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and all new, exclusive missions. While, the all-new Multiplayer mode raises the bar even higher from the world-record setting online play from its predecessor delivering new capabilities, customization, gamestates and modes, including customizable killstreaks, accolades and new create-a-class features.

Nah, there will be tons of sales. If it was the #1 in pre sales - sales will drop like a brick, and they will be left with thousands of surplus copies and no one to buy them.

I'm not trying to argue here but a lot of retailers are running out of preorder copies to meet demand, let alone street so I don't think you're necessarily correct here but I hope that's the case as I really would love to see the game flop due to IW's literal spitting in the face of the community that made them successful.

The PC community is going to rip this game a new hole, and when it is 20-25 bucks, I MIGHT buy it. I don't anticipate doing so though. The community is still VERY strong on CoD4, as WaW community closed up quick as people reverted back to CoD4. (Just what I saw, and the active communities I am in with CoD games. Hell, I know more people that play CoD2 than CoD4 and WaW - and still competitively.)

Which brings up another great question - how do you have competitions with MW2? You don't.

I hope the PC community rips this game a new one but I suspect it's still going to be successful. My hopes are that the new multiplayer experience on the PC side is unsuccessful with consumers and they revert back in the next installment. WaW's community is still going strong, I still play it from time to time and there are still tons of servers and players on them.

As for competitions, they have some private match functionality built in to accommodate clan matches and whatnot. Personally I think the idea of a 9vs9 matchmaking FPS thats player hosted isn't conducive to fair play in the first place so who would want to have matches at all? The host has an obvious advantage.

You're the one calling people liars over getting a game cheap within a month of release. Seriously, get over yourself and grow up. The fact that you need to argue whether someone got a game on sale a month after release, and then when they show proof, you call them a liar...that's really fucking sad.

No Dagok, I'm not fighting with you because you had a bad day. Thanks for your wisdom though.
