Modern Warfare 2 Takes it to the bank!

According to Activision Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has set its place firmly in history by becoming the highest grossing entertainment launch of all time.

Taking a whopping $550 million in its first week MW2 eclipsed the previous record holder, the film Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince which  grossed $394 million in its first five days.

Modern Warfare 2 also set records on Xbox Live with Microsoft claiming that  more than 5.2 million multiplayer hours were logged playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the first day alone. And more than 2.2 million unique gamers played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in one day on November 10th. A new one-day record for Xbox LIVE. And Also more than 11 million achievements were unlocked on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the first day.

Needless to say Activision are feeling pretty happy with themselves, CEO Robert Kotick stated, “The title’s success redefines entertainment as millions of consumers have chosen to play Modern Warfare 2 at unprecedented levels rather than engage in other forms of media.”

So tell me the chances that Infinity Ward will live up to their promise that MW2 is their last in the series?

Kayne’d again!

Eidos has announced the long-awaited return of everybody’s favourite criminals Kayne & Lynch.

Kayne & Lynch 2: Dog Days promises to deliver a new visual experience inspired by documentary filmmakers. Every aspect of the game has been designed to deliver a fresh perspective to the words ‘intensity’ and ‘realism’ in video games.

“Gamers are always looking for something new and that is exactly what they are going to get with Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days,” Claimed Niels Jørgensen, general manager of IO Interactive. “A special thanks to gamers worldwide for their feedback. They are certainly in for a shock as we, with immense pride, welcome back our two dear, violent and somewhat unfortunate friends.”

It remains to be seen if the game lives up to these massive and bold claims.
