MW2 trailer seems surfaced 9/11 in imagery

October 7th, 2009

The standard videogames should be about looking forward towards evolution. Modern Warfare 2, going to prove the best RPG in the gaming industry, should open gateways of evolution into the future and close the past. But…

…unfortunately it is depicting a Washington under siege.


The trailer released on 4th October (Sunday) depicts it. The crybabies or the pot stirrers think something similar. If we cross-check few of the forums dedicated to MW2, many of them several times mentions this is not the first time Washington has been destroyed on screen. According to them this may be one of the first times a video game imagery has surfaced the 9/11.

The question: Does MW2 go too far in destruction? Is it more offensive?

The MW2 trailer which was debuted at NFL game has till now racked about 200,000 views since it was posted on YouTube and reports are also there that total pre-order of the game is over a million.

If we take a closer look then we may notice that this summer all video games based on current events are seeing something of a surge. Well, may be MW2 is a bit different than the cartoon Flash game released a year before, may be. At least Modern Warfare 2 is not trying to make the object to try to hit George W. Bush with a shoe.

Give a thought…

June 9th, 2009

Activision needs not to worry at all for the Modern Warfare 2. It has been proved from the past record of it in the gaming industry. It has always dominated the videogame market. Activision has a knack for owning pretty much every genre it sets its sights on conquering. The previous two serious of Call of Duty games are still a hot selling in the video games market. It is never a surprise for Activision to expect Modern Warfare 2 to crush the competition this year.


Mike Griffith, the publishing CEO of Activision said that they have goals for all of their titles. He said that they fully expect this new series of Call of Duty to be one of the largest title in the gaming industry this year.

Griffith further said, “When you look at whenModern Warfare 1 was launched in 2007, it had a substantial jump in consumers engaged in the Call of Duty franchise. World at War, which was launched in Holiday 2008, saw that more than a fifth of its purchasers were first time users of the Call of Duty franchise. So all those new purchasers are ready for theModern Warfare 2 experience because they haven’t historically been in the franchise.”

It is also learned that Mike Griffith also predicts that Modern Warfare 2 owners will be almost double form what it was for the original Modern Warfare.
