Ok first off, the article and you got this wrong. It is not Call of Duty. Infinity Ward left the Call of Duty line because of Activision's anger that Infinity decided to go away from the WW2 theme. The game is called Modern Warfare 2.

Second, holy ****ing ****. I wonder if I can upgrade my preorder for this bad boy. If it's only the $80 that they list, I want it.

There is no other maker of Call of Duty besides Infinity ward. This one should be named 4, because to me, 3+5 didn't even exist.

I apologize for my rant, the yelling, and screaming in advance.

I "LOL" at your stupidity...

And lack of research. Infinity Ward (IF) created Call of Duty, the series was then "purchased" by the greedy, franchise-ruining, unoriginal developing entity that is ruining the video game business. I call this entity "Activision".

The company Treyarch (<-- HATE) then got a deal with Activision and Infinity Ward to make an expansion pack for Call of Duty (1), Big Red One. Infinity Ward was much less than pleased with the expansion pack, as it didn't add much content and reused many of the original game elements. But it achieved huge sales solely because of Infinity Ward's success. Activision though, of course, LOVED this. They set up a deal that locked in the Call of Duty series to an "every-other-game" with Infinity Ward and Treyarch.

Call of Duty 2 (Infinity Ward) was a huge success, one of the most played games on Xbox Live and computer (It's still in the top 10 most played comp games today btw). Call of Duty 3 (Treyarch) is an absolute flop. The game is a glitchy, vehicle-ridden mess. Yet again, Treyarch rides on the success of IF, and Activision makes a load of money.

And the biggest outrage, Call of Duty 4 breaks away from the norm, IF realizes that the WWII series is exhausted. Activision agrees, and flows development money into COD4 like no other. Mid-way through development of COD4, Treyarch presents its game to Activision. It's still WWII, tries to adventurous with the Pacific-Theater. Knowing it will be successful solely because of the name, they approve.

COD4 releases. It is, IMO, one of the over-all greatest multiplayer game ever released. Activision sees this, and SELLS THE COD4 ENGINE TO TREYARCH. SCRATCH THAT, HAND IT TO THEM. And do you know what they do? RUIN THE FRANCHISE BY MAKING AN EXACT COPY OF COD4 EXCEPT ITS A COMPLETE STEP BACKWARD, AND MAKE MONEY WITH IF'S IDEAS AND IF'S GAME, WITH THEIR LITTLE GRUBBY FINGERPRINTS ON IT.

Activision of course, couldn't be happier. Cash flows into the company like crazy, they acquire the entire Guitar Hero franchise, they acquire BLIZZARD for Christ's sake.

In short, Activision doesn't give a piece of flying s*** about Infinity Ward, only the money the get from the COD franchise. They LOVED the modern concept because it brought in more money. Infinity Ward kept Call of Duty out of the name because they want to distance themselves from Treyarch's horrible, thieving game studio and Activision's money-hungry ways.

That argument is over, please continue to talk about the contents of the Prestige Edition. :)

the NVG pack is 150. officially NOT making these the cheapest POS goggles they could find (as if IF would ever give you ****). They're 2 stage functional goggles but are closer to the grade of NV on a handheld camera in goggle form. They have lots of IR leds around the lens, so it will see in the dark well.


World at War was a trashy reskin of cod4. zombie mode was the only thing mildy fun and they did so much wrong that it was just barely worth playing.


Activision ruins good series' in order to drive profits and shamelessly rips off competition. I'm glad harmonix and Infinity ward got out.


And turning the lights on will never damage your eyes. there is no screen on night vision goggles that is capable of producing blinding light.

I don't think it was all Activision though... Apparently Infinity Ward is just going another direction. But Modern Warfare 2 is off of COD4 so...

Activision didn't want to pay Infinity Ward to make it anymore. Activision is known to send people in and figure out what "formula" they can use to pump out the game, whereas Infinity Ward is a real developer. Activision had a copy-paste studio come in and make CoD3, which pissed of Infinity Ward. They settled a lawsuit by agreeing that every other year would be eachother's turn. Activision still withholds rights to use CoD engine from IW, which is how they copied and pasted CoD4 and then reskinned it.

Activision did the same thing for Guitar Hero when Harmonix "abandoned" it for what they as a smart developer felt was the real next step in the series. It's much harder to tell that Guitar Hero's are just copy/pastes, because of the new songs. Instead of selling an enormous amount of song packs like Harmonix, and saving the consumer money, Activision's developer just makes one every couple months, so that the customer has to buy the whole game for maybe just one song. This is why I don't play Guitar Hero. It's a shameless ripoff of Harmonix's REAL intellectual property, and it's being used to issue the "Madden Effect" (where consumers are forced to keep consuming in order to keep up) on customers rather than just providing a good game and supporting it for a long time.

They have a niche and develop their games as such, it'd be suicide for a developer to drop their best line when it still sells.

You're going to be waiting a looooooooooong time for "Halo 4" since Halo 3 was the last of the series they're making. Recon (ODST) is the same storyline, but prior to the story of Halo3. Same with Halo Wars.

They're also making Halo: Reach. Thus is the prolouge of Halo. Shows how the Spartains got killed off.

Bungie is overdoing Halo. It will soon die from lack of interest. The only people who play Halo now are little kids and the Brits. I don't know about you, but I dislike shooting an entire clip into someone, then having to melee them to kill them.

Infinity Ward is going a whole different direction than the "Call of Duty" line. They broke off the trend of WW2 and are targeting a new direction. Thus, they will not die. Halo is a repeat of the exact same thing over and over again. The only differences are small, as in new weapons and such. ODST will be slightly different, seeing as you're not God and you are a normal human being. But besides that fact and the added stealth element, there is no difference. I will most likely buy it, purely because I like the Halo story line. But I refuse to play halo online. I would much rather play Modern Warfare or Red Faction: Guerrilla.
Actually, I would much rather play one of the originators of FPS like Doom or Quake. Even UT is better then Halo. At least in that game, a head-shot blows off the ****ing head and is a instant kill. Not to mention a rocket actually kills someone.

/rant.

****in noobs. Stupid new gen gamers can't appreciate the skill of the veterans. I grew up with Quake, Doom, and UT. It's sad that I haven't invested money into Q4, UT3 and Doom3 yet. I have them sitting on my floor for my comp, but I need a better graphics card first.

Which leads me to a soon to be posted thread about my new computer that I just picked up for $679.99.

Like I said. Silly new generation gamers.

I bet none of you even know what Urban Terror is. It is what started Valve on it's path towards CS. Oh and guess what, it was by Id... the makers of Doom and Quake. Just that Valve decided to make their mod into a separate game and built a whole new engine for it. That's the only reason they were successful with it. ID just let it's users make maps and stuff and had it as a free mod and concentrated on their Quake engine.

You all do realize that Gears of War is built off the original UT engine right? It's just a 3rd person UT3.

Dead Space incorporated that into the story line a lot better then Halo 3 did. You did go back and fourth, but at least in Dead Space it was sensible. You're on a ship... confined to specific areas. In Halo 3, you're on a planet... You'd think there would be a crack somewhere that you could go to get out of the same path you previously took.

Modern Warfare had such a great storyline. I seriously felt like I was playing through a movie. It left me wanting more in the end and if Modern Warfare 2 can do the same thing, I will be very pleased.

No, I don't care about the story mode realism. I care about the online multiplayer realism. I hate having little 3 year old's kill me because they run around with sniper rifles and shoot 4 bullets towards your head and kill you when you just shot an entire clip into them, but they won't let you "wack" them.

I'll stick with games that actually do life damage. Everyone is like "Oh play another mode." Well guess what? Even the other modes aren't enough to keep me playing the game. The rooms are retarded for one. Lets join a game and then not have a map cycle but have to leave the game and find a new one every time you want to play a new round. Red Faction: Guerrilla does that too, but at least Red Faction's gameplay is worth coming back to.
