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.

Finally we will be able to attack from beyond the clouds. Modern Warfare 2 just keeps getting better and better. The Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer video also shows a laptop equipped !! What in the hell could this be for? We can only speculate and wait !!

COD 6 Controller

The game has just received a news update via Robert Bowling’s Twitter account, who is the community manager over at Infinity Ward, the developer of the title, about the creation of a dedicated/custom Modern Warfare 2 controller. “In a design meeting for a #MW2 controller. Need your advice – Concave or Convex grips for the Analog sticks? Whats [sic] your preference and why?,” reads the tweet from Bowling’s account. Who knows exactly what the controller would look like? Hopefully it will not resemble the image above 😀

It would seem that Activision, which is handling the publishing of the game, isn’t content with charging a lot of money for the two separate special editions of the title, and will also offer, when the title will appear in November, a special controller for fans to get the most out of their title and for the company to get the most money out of their customers’ pockets. As far as this being a smart move, who knows. People tend to get used to their own controllers and to learn a whole new one just for a single game might be a tad silly.

Bowling did mention though that the controller would be developed by neither Activision nor Infinity Ward, so it is getting more and more likely that another company, like Mad Catz, specialized in creating peripheral controllers, will handle this project.

Prestigious Edition unboxing !!! What will be there in the box of MW2?

It will have an art book, arcade code and also some limited edition packaging. The packaging will have real working night vision goggles that you can use in spying on your neighbors or if not then you may also keep neighborhood watch for terrorists. (ha, ha)

Robert Bowling, the Community Manager of Infinity Ward, also called as FourZero Two, unboxed the full set of in a video. From the video it seems that it looks quality. It also seemed that it is one of the most expensive gaming box sets in the history of gaming industry.
