Modern Warfare 2 though has sold over 12 million copies, but the loss of the company grew to $286 million in 2009′s last three months due to accounting changes and also because of a hefty reduction of music games value such as Guitar Hero and some other titles for the Wii console of Nintendo.

Bobby Kotick, the CEO of the company said, “Last year was a really tough year in the category. The casual consumer in an economy like this one is going to be very cautious about where they spend their dollars.”

The shares of Activision rallied in after-hours trading after the company announced that it would be paying an annual stock dividend. The company even announced about a $1 billion stock buyback program. In the regular session, the shares of the company added 5 cents, to $10.10. Later on they rose to $10.55.

Kotick also added, “It shows you the strength and confidence we have.”

In the holiday quarter the sales were led by CoD and games like World of Warcraft in online. The monthly fees of it makes the company compared with other software games

Juggernaut sucks for gamers comments readers

May 5th, 2009

Yesterday we put up an article about what the gamers want in Modern Warfare 2. We have received a good number of comments and it is still flowing in. Few of the comments are really very rational and hope that it gives the Infinity Ward people a serious look before the launch of the game.

One of the serious gamer wrote, “I would really love to see attachments for my primary weapon, along with silenced sniper rifles! Juggernaut sucks when you play against it, but its still part of the game and gives and extra challenge.”

Just check what one more reader writes about the juggernaut. He writes, “I don’t even use juggernaut; I use stopping power. Although if they do get rid of juggernaut, then I think they need to get rid of stopping power also. These two perks were designed to be in the game together. People that bitch about juggernaut are just babies who need to get better at the game. I hope they don’t get rid of juggernaut and keep stopping power just because a bunch of bitches are complaining about their lack of skill.”

We welcome more such serious comments from gamers who are waiting desperately for the game to be launched on the scheduled day of 10th November.

I’d like to take this time to make sure everyone knows this IS NOT the official site.

March 30th, 2009

So at the moment Google has this site #1 for the search term “modern warfare 2″ and I don’t want IW to sue the crap out of me so I’m going to make sure everyone knows the official Modern Warfare 2 site is located here. I don’t know why they put me back to #1, the day after the trailer was released they stuck IW at #1 but it has since slipped back to #2.

Hey also, don’t you guys own modernwarfare2.com? That question is directed at the IW guys if they should happen to read this post. If you guys have the .com just move all your stuff over to it and it will out rank this site just because it’s the .com

Anyway, I’m sure Google will figure it out soon enough, in the mean time try not to sue me OK? I mean after all, I always give you guys love and make sure everyone knows you’re way better devs than Treyarch :)

Some perks hidden in last nights trailer?

March 26th, 2009

I was reading the comment thread over at reddit about the trailer and one of the people pointed out what appears to be some perk icons hidden in the trailer at 1:12. It certainly looks like some perk icons to me, what do you think? Also, has anyone else found anything worth mentioning? I have been at work and not had a chance to really watch the trailer frame by frame yet. If you find anything interesting, stick it in the comments of this post and I’ll check them when I get home.

Modern Warfare 2 Trailer Released + release date confirmed

March 26th, 2009

It’s really not much of a trailer, basically it’s a glorified MP3 clip, but I guess at this point we will take whatever we can get. Don’t get yourself too excited but if you wanna take a look…or listen, do it here.

Also, as previously called out on both this site and cod6.org, the release date is indeed 11.10.09, I’ll be taking a week off or so from work that week BTW. I still wish they had given us a bit more, if you pause the video at the correct times you can sort of make out some pictures but it leaves the viewer a bit hungry for more which is probably their exact intentions ;o

So it looks like the “leaked modern warfare 2 details” was a hoax

March 10th, 2009

>> discuss it more in the forum <<

I’m sure most of you that have been following the upcoming release of Modern Warfare 2 saw the recent hoopla about some of the details being leaked. It’s looking more and more like some kid just made it all up. We can’t say for sure that it’s 100% BS though because in Infinity Wards denial of the “leaked info” they didn’t say it was ALL fake, but they said “we can’t comment on what is and isn’t real information”, So apparently some of it is indeed real but the question is, how much of it? And if some of it is real, where did this kid get it? Did he just make stuff up and got lucky with a few of his dreams?

Eh, who knows.

Call of Duty 6 Perk Ideas – v2

February 25th, 2009

>> discuss it more in the forum <<

The post below was originally written for COD6.org

The reason I made a version two of this post is because of the MASSIVE popularity of the original. The blog post had 200 comments and the forum post has 14 pages. The topic of which perks will be in Modern Warfare 2 is clearly an important subject, so here we go again with round 2 of the discussion.

Don’t forget to stop by the forum if you get a chance. And yes, I know the header is F’d up and I’m working on that issue…

—————————–

The other post I made a couple weeks ago is totally over loaded with replies. It has almost 200 comments on the blog post plus however many pages on the forum thread. Clearly this topic is one that’s important to people, so I made this post with a better and longer list.

Eventually I’d like to put all the perk ideas into a poll and let users vote on which one they like the best, then maybe we can forward the results to IW.

Before you do anything, check out the official IW idea page. You can submit your ideas directly to Infinity Ward.

#1- FIRST AND FOREMOST

FOR THE SAKE OF ALL THAT IS NOT NOOBISH, PLEASE GET RID OF MARTYDOM. PLEASE. I mean for gods sakes, at least with noobstand you have to use SOME SORT of skill to shoot people. Martyrdom is just a terrible perk that was invented by the devil. Every time a noob gets a martyrdom kill, god kills a kitten. You don’t hate kittens do you IW devs? For the sake of the kittens, make it stop!

Bring Back the Friends Feature

Treyarch, bless their little hearts, tried their best with WaW, the friends feature is one of the few good things they managed to get done. Bring the friends option back but I’d like to have an option to be alerted when a friend comes online or enters a server.

Better Stats

Can’t we get some sort of stats tracking that would give you your global rank? Almost like an online AWSTATS only for Call of Duty. I’d love to know what my global rank is…I wonder if I’m in the top 5,000? Top 10,000? I think Battlefield has this but I’m not sure because I only play COD.

More Weapon Attachments / More Combos

The ability to use a combo like ACOG + Silencer. This could possibly cause balance issues for the devs, I don’t know, but it would be cool. Also just more attachments in general to choose from.

Reduce Recoil

This perk would make the AK47 completely SICK. I suspect the devs would run into some balance issues with this perk. But still a nice idea.

Monkey: ability to climb trees

Awesome idea IMO. Would be great for sniping too. I played on a few custom maps where you could climb trees and it was really fun. I’d love to see this. A more interactive environment would be awesome.

Destructible Environment

I think this is a great idea. It’s kind of silly when you call an airstrike on a little tiny shack and the shack protects you from like 3 x 500LB bombs. If they don’t make walls destructible with things like nades and launchers, at least make them destructible when an airstrike is called ya know? Unless there are no airstrikes in COD6 in which case disregard this entire post.

Pick Up Grenades and Flashes

Makes good sense, you can pick up guns and ammo, why not flashes and nades?

Increase Running Speed Perk (not stamina)

A perk for being able to run faster. Would be nice for people who like to knife and use shotty.

Something after 7 kills

Personally I’d like to see one more thing, perhaps a nice little something at like 15 kills. It kind of sucks to get to 15+ in a row and have nothing to look forward to. Even something at 20 would be cool.

Play Dead

Previously discussed, self explanatory.

Control the heli + able to be killed while in the heli

“After you get a 7 kill streak and call your chopper you will be the one actually responsible for kills. You are the machine gunner. Your helicopter cannot be shot down but you can be shot off of the mounted machine gun. Once you are shot your helicopter flys away.” Idea pulled from this post on the forum.

Character Customization

There should be a little more customization to the characters than just weapons, everyone is different. I mean for each side (green and red) there should be certain outfits you can choose from. Or instead of doing that, have options for Clans to make their own uniform from head to toe. Example- You join a clan you gain options to have custom fittings for your character, and you unlock more as more of the people in the clan ranks get higher and higher, you get more options. And the Clan leader chooses the colors and symbol for the clan. Maybe you unlock more things as you reach a prestige.

Remove eavesdrop

Nobody uses it, it’s probably the most non-used and worthless perk there is. At least on PC, dunno about consoles. Just seems like a wasted slot where something better could be.

Laser Beam Sights

They have the beams in single player of COD4, dunno why they didn’t add it to MP too.

360 / PC / PS3 Compatible

I know, I know. Everyone is going to start screaming that it’s impossible, it’s not impossible and I’m sick of hearing that. There should be some sort of OPTION, so I can play with my friends across all platforms. I understand the mouse gives me an advantage, I understand my graphics card gives me an advantage. Like I said before, if we can send men to the moon I’m pretty sure we can give the players the ability to play with their buddies across platforms. If IW makes this happen I will buy all the devs hookers form the bunny ranch and have them shipped to the IW headquarters. Make it happen! I want to shoot my friends in the face and then teabag them! ;D

Better Sniper Zoom

A perk that allows the sniper rifle to zoom in 2X or maybe even 3X like in Counter Strike Source.

OK that’s all for tonight, I can’t sift through anymore of the ideas. I have 200 comments in the blog post and 14 pages on the forum. Maybe I’ll update this post again tomorrow.

Here’s a video of COD5 to keep you busy until Call of Duty 6 comes

December 12th, 2008

This is just a video I made like a week after WaW came out of BETA, nothing great, a few jump shots and a double kill.

Modern Warfare 2 (cod6) has been announced!

December 12th, 2008

Well boys and girls, IW is going to make a come back and it will be in the form of Modern Warfare 2. So think COD4 only way cooler. Because they can add all the awesome stuff form Call of Duty 4 that we loved, and remove the stuff we didn’t. I think Infinity Ward could develop a better game than Treyarch with their eyes closed. I’m just so happy that Activision isn’t going to give Treyarch another chance to screw Call of Duty up.

Anyway, stay tuned for more information and news regaurding COD6. Very little is known right now but I’m sure new stuff will be leaked as time goes on.

COD6 MW2 is due to be released sometime in fall of 2009!
