If Infinity Ward’s own Prestige Edition of Modern Warfare 2 isn’t enough to satisfy your lust for custom hardware, Mad Catz is ready to pick up the slack with no less than ten MW2-branded peripherals. The crown jewel to the set will be the Combat Controller, which will have a couple of extra buttons, but more importantly, is likely the controller Robert Bowling was tweeting about last month. Come this November, you’ll also be able to talk smack via a Throat Communicator on the 360 or a more mundane Bluetooth Headset on the PS3, add Skinz to your controllers and Microsoft console, and even your neglected PC can be enriched with an Elite Keyboard and Sniper Mouse combo. In other words – THE HYPE MACHINE IS IN FULL EFFECT.

Update: IGN has been first to preview the full plethora of goods, and we’ve got the video for you after the break (Thanks, quasar).

50 Cent Voiceover in Modern Warfare 2

Posted in Modern Warfare 2 Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , on August 14, 2009 by modernwarfare2forums

WTF!!!? Does this mean the main character will be African-American? The hands on the demo videos are white… I just can’t see his style of speech matching a war game. (A rappers lingo in a game? WTF)

It will change the whole game…

For example:
“Attack on my command”
will now be:
“Yo bust a cap in their ass”

Or:
“Hit the ground, incoming fire”
will now be:
“Yo foolz be blasting, hit the deck”

Or:
“Requesting Support”
will now be:
“Yo hommies strap your glocks, bitches be fronting”

Or:
“Yes sir”
will now be:
“Aight”

Or:
“I am Special forces Agent X”
will now be:
“I don’t know what you heard about me, but I am a mother fucking P.I.M.P.”

No More Prestige Edition – SHOCKING NEWS FOR FANS.

Posted in Call Of Duty 6 News with tags , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2009 by modernwarfare2forums

In spite of apparent demand for the prestigiousness edition of Modern Warfare 2, Infinity Ward’s Rob Bowling’s assured IGN that no more are to be made after the initial run.

“We’ve already been asked by retail merchants to up the production numbers due to demand, which we straight off denied,” he said.

“We decided from the beginning that we want this to be for the loyal fans and early adopters.

“The fact that it is actually limited is one of the coolest parts, which is why we’ve individually numbered every copy.”

This has to be the “dumbest” move I have heard of. When something is popular and is making money KEEP DOING IT. You will make the fans happy, and the income can improve the studios next game releases. More money to play with = Better Games.

This is truly sad news for those kids who were putting away money to purchase the Prestige Edition. I can just see the eBay auctions now: “Prestige Edition – Buy It Now 1000 USD”
Meh.

Call of Duty Branding rises Modern Warfare 2 Purchase Interest

It’s astonishing how 3 trivial words can cost so much profit, but that appears to be the case with the entire Modern Warfare 2 calling fiasco. In what comprises most likely Activision’s endeavour to produce 2 franchises, the renaming of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to Modern Warfare 2 and back again has brought about fascinating results.

At 1st, the re brand appeared to harm sales and interest. And so what does Activision do? They name it back once again. In executing so, interest in the title as if by magic goes up once again. But if you think that’s the end of the saga, you are painfully misguided.

The most recent data from Nielsen’s videogame tracking service expresses that the title “benefits considerably from affiliation with its multi-platinum parent franchise Call Of Duty.”

Nielsen compared consumer response to the game a week earlier and a week later the name change. “Aided awareness” of the title made up 94 per cent post name change, while “definite interest in purchasing” rose by 64 per cent and “absolute favorable interest in buying” by 65 per cent.

The recently announced Prestige Edition and the Hardened Edition of the game still miss the Call of Duty branding, leaving the only remaining version with the CoD branding as your normal vanilla package. Moreover – personal computer users will not even get the alternative to buy any special edition with trinkets, but instead are cursed with their plain cardboard box.

And so why all the discrepancy? My hypothesis is that Activision and Infinity Ward know that gamers who buy the Modern Warfare 2 special editions already interpret the brand. There’s no need to hang on the CoD name. This kind of assigns MW2 as a transition game for the brand name, as the everyday consumer commonly abides by the hardcore. I guess only time and Modern Warfare 3 will tell what the next game is called.

Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition Includes Original Game.

The upcoming Call Of Duty has accumulated a lot of press recently, whenever not for the best reasons but any press is beneficial press. Infinity Ward appear to be proving to place the price tag behind them now with an declaration that gamers will be capable to play back the original title in the series when they buy Modern Warfare 2.

Unhappily it isn’t quite as gracious as it sounds with the game being concentrated to the Prestige and Hardened Edition of the title so not everybody will be able to play the game, right away.

Prestige and Hardened Edition buyers will be acquiring entree to Call of Duty: Classic first. It’ll sooner or later be coming out for both Xbox Live Arcade and PSN as a stand-alone arcade game

Inside information about the pricing and release date are unknown at the moment but full online multiplayer is confirmed.
