Call of Duty XP Not Yet Sold Out

The Call of Duty XP Website is still offering ticket sales for this Call of Duty gaming convention, even though tickets have been available for almost six weeks and the event kicks off in under 48 hours. When Call of Duty XP was announced, Activision said it would host "more than 6,000 fans," but GameSpy confirmed with Activision that tickets are still available. This is a striking contrast to Activision's other gaming convention, BlizzCon, for which tickets traditionally sell out in minutes, in spite of hosting approximately 27,000 attendees in 2010, and, according to reports, more than 30,000 this year. For those interested, tickets to the Los Angeles event are available to those at least 18 years of age for $150.00, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Call of Duty Endowment. Attendees will receive the Modern Warfare 3 Hardened Edition and get to see performances by Dropkick Murphys and Kanye West. Also, Shacknews points to a Call of Duty XP 2011: Recap Day 1 video and a hyped-up Call of Duty XP 2011Walkthrough with Robert Bowling.

If Activision would have called it brocon the thing would have sold out in a few seconds. Shit would have been sooo cash. They could have had a bags and beer pong tourney with a keynote speech on hair gel. Also, some xboxs.

This is actually brilliant. Throw a CoD kegger $5 cover.

This franchise was doomed from the day that Activision hired another developer to work on every other sequel. It was the begining of the end. Its just taking a long while, like cancer.

Doomed I tell you. Doomed.

That started with Call of Duty 3. Since we've had MW, World at War, MW2 and Black Ops. Pretty sure each sold more than the last.

I can't say for sure, but the team they compiled has a pretty good pedigree. Shoeffield in charge? Yeah, I'm not expecting the game to suck.

BF3, on the other hand, looked great at the reveal, but is looking more and more like that girl you picked up at the bar after a few too many...the more you see and know, the less you want to...

As for XP? I'm rushing out to not buy my ticket.

Well kids can't go, and bros don't go to gaming conventions.

Despite being immensely popular, I don't think there are many nerds nerding out over the CoD series.

I just don't think people are all that excited for yet another Call of Duty 4 game. If it was "Battlefield 3 Con", it would be sold out rather quickly.

Maybe if they'd brought in some celebrity team mates.
Bring in some Christian Bale, or Milla Jovovich.

Honestly, Kanye West? I mean; really?

Proof that although CoD sells well that there is a huge difference between regular old consumers and huge fucking nerds. If Activision really wants people show up to a nerd con - then they need to create a Civil War game. Then they might get some of those reenactment nerds. Even then, that whole franchise is too close to reality to cater to complete fanboi/girl nerdality.

Is this surprising? They have denied 80% of their target demographic access to the show. And seriously.. an FPS can't carry a Con. You are just going to have a bunch of dudes running around with their knives out.. since every knows you running faster with your knife equipped.
Yeah you need way more than just an fps to start up a con. Imagine if id had made a 'quakecon' down in texas back in the day.......

Call of Fail. Really? How many really want to see Kanye West? Much less CoD players? A hell of a lot less than 6000 I guess, huh? I can see it now, there's going to be like a dozen guys show up for this all going 'Any chicks gonna' show?'
