Modern Warfare 3: The Hype

“There’s a soldier in all of us.” And I know all those soldiers within are anticipating the release of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 which hits stores in Europe and North America on the 8th of November. You know what that means; you need to go and set up camp at your local game store. However, just incase you weren’t ready for COD: MW3 and you needed some extra motivation to harass your local game store manager at midnight, here’s a Modern Warfare 3 live-action trailer to awaken your inner soldier.

If Sam Worthington, Jonah Hill and Dwight Howard didn’t do it for you then nothing will. Pre-orders are above that of last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops says publishers, Activision Blizzard. Black Ops sold 25 million copies so imagine how well Modern Warfare 3 may do; and as a dedicated gamer you would want to contribute to its potential success, right?

Wrong. In Créteil, France, a delivery truck carrying 6,000 copies of Modern Warfare 3 was hijacked and stolen by two masked individuals on Saturday. The truck crashed into a car, then the two hijackers exited, tear-gassed all the witnesses and made their escape with the €400,000 worth of games. This was reported by French news outlets: TF1 and Ultimate PS3. So if you are in France and you’re getting copies of the game earlier than everyone else and/or for a lower price, you know why.

These criminal gamers give the rest of a bad name, don’t they? But don’t let them spoil your mood; Are you hyped for Modern Warfare 3? Possibly planning a camping trip outside a game store? Please leave any thoughts below.
