Modern Warfare 2 xBox 360 Bundle

Posted in Call Of Duty 6 News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2009 by modernwarfare2forums

MW2 Xbox

This is no shocker !!!

Microsoft is known for big news. From their exclusive GTA:LC downloads to a custom made xBox 360. The Modern Warfare 2 theme looks quite nice and is sure to be a sell out.

While the new game Forza 3 set is still an unconfirmed listing, there’s no denying the Xbox 360 has just upped its storage capacity options with a massive 250GB HDD bundle clad in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 series. The asking price is $399.99 and that includes the game and two sleek black wireless controllers.  Joystiq have conjured up some images of the packaging as well as some shakycam footage of the debut from a LA press event, seen after the break.

Update: It’s now available for pre-order care of Amazon. Oddly enough it lists only Composite A/V cables for input — what gives Microsoft, no love for Component? You can save by pre-ordering on our forums. Free shipping is included. Click here for more information.

More Information:

Microsoft and InfinityWard just announced the availability of a Modern Warfare 2 themed Xbox 360 console at a press event in LA. Included in this “limited edition” $399 package is: a 250GB Xbox 360 console, with the  Modern Warfare 2 markings (the so-called “Super Elite”); two wireless controllers, presumably also apparently not Modern Warfare 2-themed (though, notably, not Mad Catz’s officially licensed wired controllers); and, lastly, a “standard edition” copy of Modern Warfare 2. No matter how you do the math, that’s a good deal. As most of us know, the only thing that moves more consoles than “a good deal” is “a good deal” that includes the words “modern,” “warfare,” and “two” somewhere in the title. This will only help InfinityWard to launch their game into the biggest game release, ever.

Major Nelson says it’s the “standard edition” of the game and Amazon, in addition to not listing a WiFi adapter (we won’t quit complaining, Microsoft! You have to cave in !!), specifies that the bundle only includes a “Composite A/V cable.” The only other detail we’ve gathered is that you’ll be able to preorder like you’ve got a pair beginning “today” – Amazon has the listing right here. If you’re hungry for any more details you can watch our shakicam videos of the big reveal and what’s in the box. I cannot believe that for that amount of money they are still stiffing customers out of an HDMI cable. When will this end? Is the HDMI cable really that expensive to include in the package? While the modded MW2 xBox360 is cool, Microsoft fails at delivering a full system.

Modern Warfare 2 Information – Reloaded !! What do we know so far.

Posted in Call Of Duty 6 News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2009 by modernwarfare2forums

Modern Warfare 2 Info:

Modern Warfare 2 (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2) is an upcoming FPS video game developed by InfinityWard and published by Activision for Microsoft Windows, PS 3, and Xbox 360. Officially announced on February 11, 2009, the game is due for worldwide release on 11/10/09. It is the sixth installment of the Call of Duty series, and the direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, continuing along the same storyline.

Modern Warfare 2 will be released in conjunction with two other Call of Duty games: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized for the Nintendo DS/DSi, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a port game of Call of Duty 4 adapted by Treyarch for the Nintendo Wii console. Also, a comic book series based on one of the game’s characters will also be produced, entitled Modern Warfare 2: “Ghost”. The developer has stated that the game’s proprietary InfinityWard 4.0 game engine is much better over the engine used in its previous game.

Modern Warfare 2 PC EditionModern Warfare 2 Gameplay Information:

Campaign

In response to questions about the length of the single-player campaign,(as we all remember how short the 1st edition was) Infinity Ward CCO Jason West stated that Modern Warfare 2 would not be longer than the 6-10 hour-long campaign of Call of Duty 4. Mission settings in the game will include Russia, a military base in Kazakhstan, a desert area in Afghanistan (green zone anyone?), and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. New features include the ability to dual wield handguns.(I cannot wait !!)

Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer:

Modern Warfare 2 will feature a cooperative mode (woo hoo, about time) entitled Special Ops, which consists of independent missions similar in design to the “Mile High Club” epilogue mission from Call of Duty 4.These missions will take place in a variety of locations from the campaign mode, but are related to story of the campaign itself. Special Ops supports cooperative play for up to two players,and can be played alone, in split-screen locally with another player, or online with another player. It includes such scenarios as a snowmobile race, a battle alongside U.S. Navy SEALs, and fending off a wave of 50 enemies at once. (drools !!)

Special Ops is divided into separate packs of missions with changeable difficulty levels. (You will not survive mode, you up for it?) The third group, “Charlie”, includes the mission “Breach and Clear”, where the objective is to just make it to the end of the level. At the beginning of a mission, players select what weapon to use from several scattered around a room before the actual mission commences. Once a choice has been made, a nearby wall is breached and the mission begins. At the end of each mission, a statistics screen displays how long the player took to complete the level and how many kills were scored. Successfully completing a mission earns the player stars, with missions completed on Veteran difficulty rewarding up to three stars. These stars can be used to unlock further missions in the mode. This sounds so cool. I simply cannot wait any longer !!!

Call of Duty MW2 - PS3 VersionOnline
Gameplay in the Modern Warfare online multiplayer mode

The online multi-player mode of Modern Warfare 2 retains the same awesome experience points and unlockable reward system of COD4, but also introduces several brand new features. Aside from new weapons and cool equipment, over 15 different kill streak rewards can be unlocked and selected by the gamer. Among these is the ability to receive a supply drops after four kills, a predator missile strike (this will be epic) after 5 kills, and to call in a strike by an AC-130 gunship after achieving 11 enemy kills in a row. (I cannot wait to see how this reward will un-balance the game) It is also now possible to upgrade perks to a “pro version”. Another new addition to online multiplayer, is in game host migration, which means that if the match host leaves the game, players will remain (instead of being reset to the game lobby like in Call of Duty 4) while a new host is selected and the game resumes. Overall I like the new features. Hopefully everyting will pan out in the gamers favor.

Modern Warfare 2 Plot
Riding a snowmobile in “Cliffhanger” – Does life get any better?

Modern Warfare 2 is set several years after the conclusion of COD4. The radical Russian  organization has returned to prominence under the leadership of Vladimir Makarov, a former associate of Imran Zakhaev with his own ambitions. Makarov has publicized Zakhaev’s death as an act of martyrdom to garner support for his cause, enabling him to build a strong power base in Russia over the years. Fearful of Makarov’s growing influence, the global community established Task Force 141 to counter the threat posed by the resurgent Ultranationalists.

An early campaign mission called “Cliffhanger” was demonstrated during E3 2009, following the player character Sergeant Sanderson as he and Captain MacTavish infiltrated a Russian base in the Tian Shan mountain range in Kazakhstan and escaped on snowmobiles.

Modern Warfare 2 Prestige EditionRetail versions
The contents of the Prestige Edition

Modern Warfare 2 will be released in 3 different retail versions across the PlayStation 3 and Xbox360 platforms: standard, Hardened, and Prestige. The standard version consists of the game and instructional manual, and will be the only version available for the Microsoft Windows platform. The Hardened Edition consists of the game and manual packaged in a steel book case, an art book, and a token to download the original Call of Duty from Xbox Live Arcade or the PlayStation Store. The Prestige Edition contains all of the elements of the Hardened Edition, but will also include fully-functioning night vision goggles imprinted with the Modern Warfare 2 logo and a stand modeled after the head of character “Soap” MacTavish.

So in conclusion Modern Warfare 2 has the potential to be Best Game of 2009. The unbelievable response from fans has been amazing. Amazon.com cannot keep their self stocked as pre-orders are selling our left and right. Some retail locations are opening at midnight just to satisfy the hardcore gamers. The hype machine for Modern Warfare 2 is in full effect. Now the ball is in InfinityWards court. Will they deliver? History has shown us that many of sequels turned out to be flops. Hopefully that will not be the case with Modern Warfare 2. For more information on the latest news please visit our forums:

Do you have a favorite COD4 multiplayer server? If yes, let us know..

Modern Warfare 2

If you’re like most gamers you have a so called “home” server or a server that you play on most of the time. Sometimes it’s because the general skill level (newb or pro) of the people who play there is about equal to your skill level, maybe it’s because you like the rules on that server(no marty, no claymores, no bunny hopping, etc… etc..), or because it’s some other reason that you might have.

I’m always looking for fun servers to play on so I figured why not make a blog and ask gamers to link to their favorite / best  servers. In the comments link to your favorite server(s) and list what kind of server it is too S&D, TDM, HC, SC, and so on.

Personally I like S&D SC servers. Many servers don’t allow Marty or toobs but I don’t really care about that, my main concern are the maps the server has in rotation and if it’s HC or SC, I will not play on HC servers…ever.

I have been playing on eGO’s S&D and few private servers but the strict language rules turned me off, the final star came when I got warned for saying “WTF”. I mean we are playing a game where the goal is to KILL people and teasing other players in the game is supposed to be fun. Even the characters in the game use some foul language yet I’m getting in trouble for saying “WTF”? Lol, no thanks.. I will keep on looking.

I’ve recently been playing on raov server. I like this server because they don’t allow 3 x Frags and since I like to rush a lot this is very benificial for me. Not only that but you can say whatever you want in the server except for racist words. I like all the maps they have in rotation except for one and the people that go on there are usually pretty cool. I encourage to find us and come on in and join the fun

Please let us know what kind of servers you play:

List your favorite server(s) in the comments! Also be sure in include you gamers tag so we can find you !!

Modern Warfare 2 “Soap” Statue

Posted in Call Of Duty 6 News with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2009 by modernwarfare2forums

Kotobukiya, a famous Japanese sculpting company w/ 60+ years of experience have created a statue of ‘Soap’. If you are reading this you probably already know who Soap is and if not then you’re living under a rock.

It’s up for pre-order on Amazon.com for 79.99. The statue is a foot tall (12″ in case you don’t know)

Features:
—1/6-scale, 12″ (30 cm) tall if standing upright
—Depicts Modern Warfare veteran Cpt. “Soap” MacTavish of Task Force 141, equipped with custom snow camouflage and weaponry as seen in “Cliffhanger” mission from Modern Warfare 2
—3 sets of interchangeable weapons and arms, including: Dual ice-climbing pickaxes (pictured) Dual .45 caliber pistols M14 Enhanced Battle Rifle (affixes to Soap’s back when not in use)
—Environmental ice base stores alternate weapons when not in use

This is another drop of water into the big hype machine. Is InfinityWard  going too far with all these extras? No doubt that Modern Warfare 1.0 was an excellent game. But the short single player (6 hours max) and lack of maps for the multiplayer left players with a bitter taste in their mouths. Hardened editions, Night Vision  goggles and now statues? For 79.99 it better come with a HDMI hookup.
