Warfare 2 console!

6 years agoby:

Grab your fatigues and warm up your trigger finger. I just got a chance to play the newest title in the CALL OF DUTY franchise: MODERN WARFARE 2. I'll have the game details for you soon, but I couldn't wait to tell you about the biggest announcement of the night: the limited edition CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 2 console. This beast is sporting a 250 gig hard drive, (twice the size of the regular console) and comes with two controllers, and, of course, the game. It's a mere $399. For an extra hundred smackaroos, you not only get to kick the virtual asses of your buddies, but make them jealous of your fancy hardware as well.

Despite the chaos of the event, I managed to corner Albert Penello, Senior Director of Global Marketing at Xbox, who told me a little about the brand new gamey goodness. “We've been fans of Infinity Ward and fans of the CALL OF DUTY series since we launched Xbox. CALL OF DUTY 2 was a launch title. When a big game like this comes out, it's fun to work with passionate developers and passionate group like this to kind of create something unique and special. We knew this game was going to be huge. One of the biggest of the year. Every once in a while, it's fun to get the teams together and we did this once when HALO 3 came out...it's a good conversion. We were able to bring a bigger hard drive because there's a lot of downloadable content, include the game, the two controllers...there's still a lot of new people coming into the market right now.”

Really? I'm not buying that for a second. There are plenty of people out there who want another Xbox, but if you don't have one by now, you're not a console gamer. (If you're just getting into gaming through the Wii, you are excused.) Anyway, the thing looks damn cool, and needs to live in my den.

The console is available for pre-order right this very moment in the US and will be released in Europe later this week.

Extra Tidbit: Just think of all the movies you can download and store on a 250GB hard drive... Wow.

Okay, Im beginning to think that with your constant XBOX 360-ONLY reviews and now this nonsense (why is this on here seriously?!?!?!?) you guys are sponsored in some part by Microsoft. Seriously, why zero love for the PS3?!
It has fucking blu-ray built-in, that alone should garner it more attention from this site than than the xbox three-shitty.

i bet this new over priced console will red ring in a month anyways.

beware rrod

I am a console gamer and have been for the past 14 years, so forgive me when i say that the 360 is not sitting alongside my PS3 and Wii. I will thank microsoft for that since apparently they care less about product quality than marketing. My 360 died over a year ago and i have yet to replace it

America is confused, methinks.

Dude. The Xbox sucks. I ditched mine and bought a PS3 ages ago. Best idea i've EVER had. Seriously.

I really don't understand where all the PS3 hate comes from.

Or the Xbox love for that matter.

not a real gamer what?!!? dude you play halo and gears, those are some FINE games you got there.
While I have Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2, Ratchet and Clank, InFAMOUS, Metal Gear Solid 4, Flower, MLB 09 The Show, Warhawk, SOCOM, Pixel Junk series, Motorstorm, Uncharted, and awaiting me this holiday season are God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5, Heavy Rain, and Uncharted 2.
Upcoming for you on 360? A Halo 3 expansion, a Grand Theft Auto 4 expansion, and Forza 3. WOOP-DEE-DOO. You're

360 has been the biggest load of crap since it launched. the failure rate is over 60%.
The only good games on that system are the multiplatform titles (like modern warfare).

Also, people aren't ACTING like this isn't cool, IT ISN'T. My consoles (i do have a red ringed 360 collecting dust) are decent looking. I'm not gonna put a console on my entertainment center just because its green, black, and has a big "2" on the front. its fucking dumb. And besides, i spent less about $100 for a 500gb hdd for my PS3. guess what? you cant do that on 360.

Its just completely stupid to say PS3 is not a real gaming console. you are a total moron for saying that.

Who's dick did you suck to get an early look at this? Luck f**k! Can't wait. May I suggest JoBlo hold a contest to give one out to it's loyal members? Just a thought.

So if you don't have an Xbox 360 (But own a Wii or PS3) then you're not considered a console gamer?

That's complete bullshit.

The Wii has some fantastic games and applications that the other consoles could only wish they had. Same rule applies for PS3.

Unsurprisingly, this seems to be making news on all kinds of news sites and it isn't anything but blatant advertising for an electronic devise. One thing is for sure, someone is spreading around some major advertising dollars on this one.

What's the point of this?

Save for the tenuous link in the tidbit, this has nothing to do with movies.

Also, while the 360 is my favorite console of this generation and I love mine to death, I think the PS3 is better for movies. It's quieter and has the whole Blu-Ray thing going for it.
