I thought it was pretty interesting when Robert (the COD community manager) set this up. He's been pretty successful at it...it has repeatedly been a trend on Twitter Search which means lots of people are doing it.

I hope more companies embrace this use of Twitter, especially game companies!

It should be interesting to see what changes/improvements are made from the previous MW.

Corpsecrank has set foot on a distinguished road
Personally I am hoping they use a similar style to that of WaW vs building based around MW1.

I currently play both MW1 and WaW but WaW is a much better game from a technical standpoint. MW1 was almost to fast paced to be enjoyable. Mainly due to the map size and predictable spawn points. MW1 also lacked realistic blood and gore which WaW has almost perfected really.

So basically what I am looking for them to do with the next release is take WaW reskin it with modern war style graphics and then improve things and add new things from there.

If I know infinity ward though they finished WaW took a look at MW1 and said we can do better lol.

Actually, Treyarch developed WaW, while Infinity Ward is currently working on Modern Warfare 2. For some reason they trade off after every game. Infinity Ward did CoD 1 & 2, Treyarch did 3, Infinity Ward did 4 and Treyarch did 5. I guess it's good, because it means one developer isn't getting burned out doing one single franchise every single year. Look at what Eidos did with Tomb Raider. That series didn't get good again until Crystal Dynamics took it over.

WaW was made with a modified version of the MW1 graphics engine, so WaW would therefore be a reskin of MW1 with WW2 style graphics. So when MW2 comes out, it will be MW1 with updated modern war graphics.

After having read the world exclusive first look at MW2 in the latest issue of Game Informer, it looks to be awesome. Can't wait for November.

I agree that more game companies should be on twitter. Since I've been with twitter and have followed game companies. Bethesda taught me to wait a couple of weeks and they will post free DLC codes on twitter. I could of downloaded "the Pitt", "Anchorage", and "Broken Steel" for free from twitter, instead of paying like I did.

I'm excited as well. After reading the Game Informer and seeing the trailer, I can't wait to watch Soap be my boss. I just hope he doesn't die like Price did, I liked Price.

It's because Activision enjoys counting the money that we continually give them. Year after year. Activision used to be one of my favorite publishers as opposed to EA
which has been the evil empire of publishers. But lately EA has been taking steps in the right direction away from that image and it's been Activision which has been more and more embracing the cash cow, evil empire approach. Oh well. On topic: I've sent them my suggestion, Over and over: Modern Warfare is not a title. It is a subtitle. Modern Warfare as a title is not very descriptive, unimaginative, and abandons the Call of Duty brand that Infinity Ward has worked for years to build up. To what end? An article came out today either on Ars or GIBiz (can't remember which) where name recognition of "Modern Warfare 2" was half of that of "Call of Duty." Very stupid move on their part IMO.
