‘Warfare’ breaks out early for lucky gamers

Gaming

codmw2Video game fans in northeast lucked out this weekend when certain GameStop stores there started selling copies of the soon-to-be smash hit “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.” Reportedly, the company made the decision to break the street date of Nov. 10 due to the fact that some competitors were already selling their copies.

Usually those who manage to wrangle a copy of a game early just get to gloat to their friends, but with the built in perks and advancement system in CoD: MW2 a few days headstart could give some gamers quite a leg up when playing opponents online.

I’m not much of a first-person-shooter fan, but I’ve been swayed over by the hype and will be jumping aboard the bandwagon just as soon as I can get a copy. Unfortunately, since I’ve been unable to find any local stores willing to risk Activision’s wrath, it looks like I’ll have to be satisfied with picking it up 12:01 a.m. Tuesday morning. If you’re like me, here’s a list of Best Buy and GameStop locations that will have midnight openings for your terrorist fighting pleasure.
