    Only after seeing all the covers lined up in a row do I see how absolutely uninspired even the covers look. This franchise needs a reboot.

    They’re leaving it pretty late to give us a Multiplayer Reveal. *sigh* I agree with you andrew, too. Even the covers have barely changed, a good reflection on the games.

      I agree, I posted the covers on reddit stating this and got downvoted because they either didn’t get it or were hardcore cod fans.

    Interesting. Didn’t realize every main Call of Duty game is on the Xbox 360.

    I would have loved to have attended this amazing fan event.
    Well done Xbox 360 and Activision! Take a bow…

    As part of the Call of Duty XP make them stop with Call of Duty stupidity and ask them to have their multiplayer maps to be compatible between different COD versions since they have the same game adding minor stuff since COD4

    so if call of duty is uninspired and dull,whats exciting?

      BioShock, Battlefield, Batman AC… and that’s just the B’s. Cheers.

        bioshock was based of system shock (2 games) so Infinity would be the 5th game.battlefield is older than call of duty and has 1942,1943,bf2(plus 2 expansions),bf2142,bf heroes,bad company,bad company 2 and BF3 is net.Batman AC is just a sequel but yes it is awesome.

      Wow, I hope you’re joking.

      Maaaaybe Because this is Major Nelson’s site… just maybe.

      Good point. Maybe you should check out Kevin Butler’s site.

    Pretty cool, BUT $150 is still a bit pricey. Should be $99, this I’d be OK with, but the former, too expensive.

    • http://twitter.com/oo7plasma oo7plasma

      dont forget, this a non-profit event. All proceeds are going to their charity

        Oh, absolutely…and that’s really great, yet still, $150 is a bit much…I don’t have a money tree in my back yard you know..lol

    ahh,there’s Call of Duty 2….the best Call of Duty title

  • http://twitter.com/honkyjesus honkyjesus

    MS really knows what we want. We don’t want new IP’s, or anything that doesn’t have to do with COD, Kinect or Halo. I would hate if we had a game like Rage getting hype on the Dashboard or an MS marketing push.

    MS literally just went to the Halo console to trying to be the COD console. With crap like this, no wonder other games can’t hope to sell as well. It is pretty much impossible.

      Microsoft has nothing to do with this. This is being done by Activision.

        …woops. Read what was posted on the COD: XP site, and didn’t see anything relating it to the 360. Just Major’s article title.

      • http://www.facebook.com/TheRealDarthBrady Daniel Brady

        Are you sure about that? The title clearly starts with the Words “Microsoft Partners With”

    Great, maybe this will keep all the CoD fanatics out of PAX Prime.

    Bring your Famas, UMP, MP40, MP5, and your lack of genitalia and you’ll be sure to win!

    It’s not like some of the serves have been hacked in any of these games………..oh wait

  • David K.

    To be followed by the disasterous Call of Duty Vista and only redeemed by the much better Call of Duty 7.

      niiiiiice!

    I think it is a terrible name for a ‘convention’ or whatever this is exactly as it can easily be confused with experience points which are also part of these games. Just does not work well when discussing it in regular conversation.
    guy 1: “did you hear about CoD XP?”
    Guy 2: “its double XP weekend again?”

  • http://www.facebook.com/TheRealDarthBrady Daniel Brady

    This is awful! This is all about one thing: Activision wants to make more money from the CoD cash cow (subscriptions, etc.) and Microsoft, already being the most expensive method (Xbox) to play Multiplayer, is in on this too, so they can shovel CoD down our throats like EA/Madden does and get more money from our wallets. No thank you. I have purchased every Call of Duty released. I will not purchase another one. There are too many great alternative without the extra costs. This is the last straw. Open your Eyes people!
